Few updates to the game, added a night/day cycle and a flash light for the hero.
Some improvements to the map gen including addition of trees and only rendering what is in view.

Lots more to come but here is a short video of progress:

Love the korean dude. Its Original. And funny haha.
I like the game mechanics also, this could be a reallly fun game. But...
You should consider breaking away from minecraft. Im not saying to change
your vision for the game, but anyone who picks up the game is going to think
minecraft meets pys. And is game has more potental than that. I think it would be
worth the effort to at least change the art.

I like the art style how it is. But I agree with you, consider breaking away from Minecraft.

I just want to say, just because you can change the world and you have tiles to build with doesn't mean its Minecraft. I think everyone needs to realize that voxel games are going to be around now for quite some time considering how successful Minecraft was. 2D tile games have been around since forever, so those aren't going away. Its just I don't see the reasoning behind just wanting to completely get rid of the voxel genre.

Looks really nice, can you talk a bit about the map generator? Do you generate a heightmap and then proceed to generate the map from there or how do you go about it?

Anyway, keep up the good work Smiley

Whoops. Accidental medal.

Anyway, i completely agree with you. Many oeople look at a voxel game(2d or 3d) and think it's a clone of minecraft. I wasnt talking about the voxels though, i was refering more about the gui. Same size, number of slots, crafting sort of square. Sorry, i should have given more detail.

Ah yes, sorry. I just had one of those moments where I needed to be the hero Tongue

I do actually agree with you, to an extent. I mean, most voxel games do have the same type of GUI, but can the developers really change that? How else would you graphically represent individual blocks in a hot bar that is always accessible yet out of the way?

I guess it would be a hard thing to do to rethink the voxel hotbar Tongue!

Hello, thanks for the interest in the game, I am still working away at it. New tile set has been added by the way:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/mnU5WJnw_Zw?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/mnU5WJnw_Zw?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

I know many people will say this is like Minecraft or other voxel games, this is my first real game and a way for me to learn everything I require to eventually make other types of game. I am a corp. dev who just wanted to enjoy some programming and always wanted to create a game so I thought why not make a sandbox type game like the ones I have played:

Minecraft
Animal Crossing
Anno 1501
Sim City
Theme Hospital
Star Wars Galaxies

My idea is to create a game where you just have to survive, once this is done I will either add missions/achievements etc of look to make the game multi-player.  Currently I am working on adding fishing to the game.

Details of how I created the map are available on my blog:

http://carelesslabs.blogspot.co.uk/

Demo

I have never exported the .Jar file for use for others, would you suggest I put it on the blog for anyone to download and test at anytime? Any advice on how to share this and how often I should update it would be appreciated.

Thanks!
