Welcome to the 94h Devlog! We hope youre doing well and looking forward to checking out the in-progress tech (and sometimes new releases) from the team of creative and technical wizards creating and improving the Realm platform.
One of the more illusive issues we’ve had to resolve lately has been debugging the on-chain rewards distribution that failed to execute fully. We are happy to announce that the cause of the issue (CPU Memory throttling during distribution to the Smart Contract) has been identified and solved. This month’s rewards ran smoothly and we will be working towards retroactively adding the missed unlock during October.
Now lets catch up on the dev:
Skyrush: Jetpack Racing
We’ve heard you, our incredible community of players, who are feeling like we’ve been devoting too much energy to the builder and you’ve played all the in-game content a million times already… Well firstly, we are playing the long game here — with better building tools comes more awesome content!
But on the other hand, we also understand — we’ve all been there waiting months for a new DLC to drop in our favourite games, and so we’re introducing an upcoming concept game called ‘SkyRush’. Now bear in mind that this is still an early prototype — it will use the Jetpacks you all know and love but with additional boosts and powerups, and with an additional factor of speed as well! However the exact shape of this game is still a work in progress — feel free to drop your ideas to us on Twitter, Discord or Telegram!
As usual, this gametype is being designed with the builder tools in mind from the ground up — modules are already making their way into the module packs ready for custom course creation! In fact this video was entirely created using the builder tools!
Check out the insane aesthetic the team have created here and let us know what you think!
Realm Academy: Buildcraft, Ep. 1 — Interstellar
As the mighty Realm Academy has progressed to a huge 16 episodes, we’ve also been regularly showing more advanced aspects of the builder and demonstrating the ways in which it can be used to its full advantage. We felt however that its also beneficial to get a peek into the whole creation process from experienced builders; this is the best way to conceptualise the knowledge gained from the tutorials into a practical example of creating a satisfying world.
So, without further ado, we introduce the ‘Buildcraft’ series! Buildcraft episodes are designed to show the creative process in its entirety with with awesome sped up world builds. The first episode takes us to outer space (Perhaps we’ve all been playing too much of Bethesda’s epic space game Starfield) and is a demonstration of the versatility of the builder tool and of the stock modules. The final build furthermore shows off the incredible impact of importing custom 3D models to create otherworldly elements!
This dope space themed world took around 2.5 hours from start to finish — and you can see the whole thing in just a few minutes here!
