Cube World: Increased Voxel Resolution

Today I made some experiments with the voxel resolution of the landscape. I found that increasing the resolution by a factor of two in each dimension still gives good framerates while the result looks more detailed.
I'd be happy to hear what you think of it. Screenshots below:

Even if i'm not fond of the minecraft hype and style, your project looks looks good well beyond MC and is interesting.

Keep up the good work !

Man, I really hopes this comes out for Mac. This is sort of the most relaxing game ever. When playing Minecraft, I always got frustrated when playing in 3rd person, because the camera is just shitty. But this seems not to make that same mistake! I hope you'll release an Indev version soon!

Thanks for the feedback!

@anonymous: That's difficult because the world looks different now because it's generated randomly. But as long as you don't dislike the new look, I'm happy. :)

:P didn't spot Name/URL before

:) Something I would like to see would be a landscape with a high density on vegetation. I guess it's to soon to be talking about different environments though ^^

@dotorius: I'd like to add Mac support which should be no problem because the game is based on OpenGL.

@Coookie: Yeah different environments are planned. But currently I can only offer these green hills with some trees and rocks. :)

When i found minecraft i was amazed even by the classic version. Everything about it seemed so cool. I have gotten a little bored of it though, after months and months and months of playing it and I wanted to see if there were any other games to keep me busy. I tried to find games like minecraft and I stumbled upon this. I have to say, I felt that minecraft needed some things, and this has it. This game looks amazingly cool. Even cooler then minecraft. Trolls and tombs? Awesome! Great idea. I love how you made NPCs and Quests. This game will never get boring! My favorite thing about this game, is the players appearance. I really like how they are made of tiny blocks. They look reaaaalllllly cool! I cannot wait to play this game. Please make it for mac!

BTW that was me above^

I wanted to say some suggestions,for you to think about, that i thought minecraft needed that would make this game cooler then it already is:

-An underworld (with demons,imps,etc)
-Night (not sure if there is already! With ghosts and monsters and stuff)
-Lots of unique weapons and equipment that can be rare to find
-Minotaurs,goblins,Lions,etc
i'll think of more!
Hopefully these will help you, or at least make you consider them

There need's to be natural disaster's like thunder storm,meteor shower's,blizzard's, hurricane's and tsumami's

this game looks amazing i wouldn't even consider taking these peoples suggestions because they are so far fetched like natural disasters ive coded before and to just make a simple platformer is quite hard I think we should just wait and see what the outcome is like because when I saw trolls I thought that was amazing and nowone suggested that so that's why we should should just leave him to make the game
