Rivers, Waterfalls and Forests

I took a little break from implementing the item system and villages and decided improve the landscape.
I added rivers with little waterfalls and improved the trees. Here are some screenshots.

Nice i like the river !

dakuten said...

Why don't you release a pre-release ? I JUST CAN'T WAIT Y_Y

CherryCoke said...

I love how the new landscape-additions look.
But one little suggestion: make the edges of the water more transparent and blue-ish. It looks a little bit odd to me how it is in the screenshots above.
I want to play the game as soon as possible ;)

PS: sry if my english is a little bit bad...its german school-english ;D

Again... This is a question I'm sure many would like to know.
Will this game be cross-platform? (ie. Mac, Linux & Windows)

wollay said...

Currently Windows only. Maybe Mac in the future.

So much new content, so many new pictures, so much awesome. Everything looks amazing, but above all that flowing water is my favorite part I have seen so far. I love that is appears to flow as tiny squares and breaks apart and such. Keep up the good work man.

Aim said...

Looks great the forests are really displaying the beautiful style of the trees, but I was wondering

Will there be different difficulty settings, or will it be a global difficulty for everyone?

Thanks in advance, and I look forward to playing this after release

Looks soooo cool. Keep up the good work!

Adam

P.S: I can't get my mind off of this, It looks too good!!!

monkey said...

Are all of the items in the game preset or will the game generate weapons randomly? Also will there be some sort of weapon enhancement system (scrolls, socket gems, e.t.c.)?

Flammer said...

This game looks quiet epic. But i have 1 question.

If its made with DirX, does Nvidia vision 3d works with it?

it would be very nice to play in 3D ;)

schöne Grüße :D

First of all, this game is going to go VIRAL in my opinion it has MASSIVE potential and if possible I would like to work for you if you got big enough, but that's all in the future, what I want to know right now is if the liquids will be finite? Like how in Terraria how there is only as much liquid on a world as there was in the beginning, but a lot. Thanks in advance, I'll keep my eyes open for updates and the release! P.S. If you want anyone to create more hype for this game, me and my 5 or so friends here would enjoy testing and maybe making a video series on this, email Vincedib2@yahoo.com if your'e interested!

Wow awesome. The waterfall for me looks a bit unfinished. I can't get the point that it's a waterfall. Looks like a few platforms with water on it. Maybe in video i'll get the point.
Nonetheless this game looks auspicious.

Question: Are there any details on the engine on this blog? Didn't find any. Would love to see some details on the engine.

Cheers

Svengal said...

Mate this game gets better with every update you post on here, very awesome watching it grow as you add new content. I hope its on track cause i cant wait to play it, and people are right, this game is gonna be pretty big, keep up your dedication and you will be amazing man. You are taking the whole block genre to the next level, these blocks look awesome haha

Planktno said...

Awesome Game =D
Looking forward to playing it.

Two questions:
Is the land randomly generated or did you make all of it?
How do you intend to motivate to continue playing? Will there be a story or will it be more random quests?

Cheers

luxrayfly said...

a release for Christmas :D

I Need a Alpha ! :p


(Sorry for my bad english, I am french...)

RodrigoSsVg said...

Dude, this is AWESOME!! The trees look fantastic, and I think you should make a giant tree with a boss inside, maybe a giant spider, that would be soo cool!

Coocker said...

You did a great job, a very good job. And I was wondering if you find a gamer that tests every game modifications, to find where it hides bugs? Because I have extensive experience in video games and yours is great. Sorry for my English but I am not correct Belgian.

Prince said...

Do you plan on having environmental hazards such as lava, falling rocks, and bad weather?

Anonymous said...

Is the environment and NPC/NSC view distance same?

(bad english :P)

iBuze said...

WOLLAY, please please please go mojang on out asses and release an alpha or beta version and then update it, i hate having to wank over pictures, i need the real thing!

Luciano said...

This update is great.
I wonder how exiting is explore forrest when it's night, in the dark.. =)

TRGWII said...

@iBuze True dat

John said...

Amazing...

Papayouki said...

Hi Wollay.
Your game is really nice, and I hope I will be able to buy it soon. Keep working and be happy : you have the power of making your dreams and ideas real.

skully172 said...

awesome.. i mean...

RacerXXL said...

Wow, I thought I would be the only german person who wants to play this game but it seems that this will get some german players. I also already liked it on facebook.

Clemshawn said...

The forests are beautiful...

Buuyah said...

Only one question. I think the water is infinite because of the waterfalls, but is this your idea or do you want to make finite water/liquids. I came to this question, cause your inspiration through minecraft. ;)

Fonzie said...

EPIC!

Anonymous said...

Its amazing,and the trees are a way better, i am the guy who said ignorantly "i want the old stile trees back!!" But man they look very good now, keep going the game looks awesome!!

Dherz said...

Really nice, can't wait to test !!! :)

Coookie said...

:) can't wait for the next update :D

Rey said...

Keep up the good work man. :) How old are you/how long have you've been coding btw?

Anonymous said...

Seasons would be cool. Like after so many in game days it changes season. And if you wanted you could have various forms of monsters according to the season. For example you could have:

Sunny season
Rainy season
Thundering season
Snowy season
Cloudy season
Foggy season
and the list could go on.

It would be great for purely Aesthetic purposes but it'd also be great for the gameplay with the various monsters.

Dennys said...

Hi, Wollay. Quick question for you. I see you displaying your forests, that have come out incredibly well in my opinion, and remember you talking about the world being generated on the fly. Is there still a decent amount of open plains, such as when you hadn't had the forests? I, for one, thought of those plains as amazingly beautiful and had really shown off the view distance. It was breathtaking to me the first time I saw it and was the reason I had actually started following this development.

Put shortly, is there still a good forest to plain ratio or have forest taken up most of the greenlands' area?

SuperSonicBlaze said...

What programs did you use to make this? Please reply as soon as possible.

Anonymous said...

Are you intrested in having testers? I personly would do it for free. please respond.

Anonymous said...

I mean, work for free. no paying, just for feedback.

Anonymous said...

Are you planing to add animals to get resources from?

Anonymous said...

EVERYONE LISTEN UP!

Wollay has said and has been saying forever that he will NOT EVER have "testers" or helpers. Quit asking. It probably bugs him more than it pisses me off to read that crap!

jofadda said...

are you going to add a spell system, if so i think i have a fairly inventive idea for the spell system skill tree, if you are interested

Anonymous said...

Found this little gem on youtube while browsing through Minecraft videos.

Now I have watched all your videos and looked at the majority of the pictures. This game looks so cute and awesome, with amazing potential. Please don't randomly stop developing Cube World, because your fanbase is extending Wollay!

Hope you'll have a playable alpha or beta for us before or around Xmas. It would be the perfect way to make the game spread. Let it be even more viral than Minecraft (excuse the comparison, but for the power of mouth to mouth marketing, there is no better advertisement!) was, for this game has every potential to match or even beat it.

grass dude said...

hey wollay thining about making a camp where the trolls live and some troll queen or something with some camp fires
you should make the torch fire move and does grass moves when youe walk over it? and im hoping to see some new monsters soon love the rivers and your almost there with the waterfalls i would say more bloks that fall like the whole surface of the edge is there a limite to climbing, swimming? if not add one.
love the villages so far but needs furniture add some bridges you now those 2 ropes and planks on it love your game hope i can play a pre release at new year happy holidys (these are just suggestions wathever ou do i love your game)

Subject A said...

looking forward to a new video :)

Gustein said...

Man, this project looks very interesting, keep up the good work.
The only thing that makes me sad, is that it probably won't run on older machines.

skully172 said...

HEY WHATS GOING ON? http://www.youtube.com/user/HylianLemonColibri?feature=watch#p/a/u/0/2u4fzIqorOg

WHY HE HAVE THE GAME???

wollay said...

@skully172 He doesn't have it, he's just commenting my videos.

wollay said...

@Dennys The plains are still there, I just wanted to show off the new forests.

wollay said...

"Seasons would be cool."

It's a nice idea and I will see if I can add something like this.

@Rey I've been coding for 17 years now.

skully172 said...

so its comming out in 2 months huh?

J&J said...

Are you alone in this project ?! O_o ?!

*sorry for my english*

aTrOz said...

Wollay, you are doing great, keep it up, have a nice merry christmas and a successful new year :)

Haziq Ikram said...

wollay, you are currently devving my most looked-forward-to game. Finish it and destroy ALL the MOJANG!

Anonymous said...

Sup Wollay.
If I got it right you are going to add NPC's, villages and a night/day cycle, right? So, why don't add a random generated "outside/inside house" routine.
When the sun is starting to rise the NPC's will get out, but in different periods. Same thing would happen when the night comes, except they get inside of course.
I think it would grant a great atmosphere to the villages.

skully172 said...

@anonymous guy

yeah like the elder scrolls

MrPlayerDead said...

What is the release date?

Anonymous said...

@Anonymous

I think I have made a grammar fault. When I wrote "When the sun is starting to rise the NPC's will get out, but in different periods." I meant that each NPC should go out in different time periods, for example NPC number #1 #3 and #8 goes out earlier then usually, because they have been generated to go up earlier, while NPC number #7 #9 and #2 goes out later in the morning because they have been generated thay way.

Jesper said...

This is incredible!
I'm gonna watch this project very closely ;)

say, if you ever need another tester; i wouldnt mind paying for being one.

i find it hard to wait for this game :<
-
some questions;

Q1;have you been thinking about adding some physics to the voxels(the blocks)?
-^;if the legs on a small tower is destroyed, the whole tower will fall, ect..

Q2;What will happen to the dungeons/castles, after you've cleared them?
will they just stand empty, or will they collapse ect?
-^;when the game detects that no one is in the castle, the castle will collapse.
--^;note; cus it might get a lil annoying -
- if you clear a castle and it just stands emtpy, cus if u then come back to the same place later, and is like: YAY a castle!-
- then discover u already cleared it..
it might sadden one a little :p
--
just sharing some of my thoughts!

Zombie1419 said...

are the worlds endless?

luc said...

Hey Wollay,your game seems awesome but I have some questions about it ! :)
1)Do you think you're going to add a shield and/or a parade system ?
2)Do you think you will add some guns, gunpowders and others explosive to the game ?
3)How monster's levels will be managed ? Do they will be copied from the player's level or there will be areas with high levels monsters and others areas with low levels monsters ?


Sorry for my bad English :]

Anonymous said...

You dont have to agree but I think the game should have update button on the game and then wollay release the game.
Once the release, then we can spread the words to others to let them know about this game other than Minecraft and All the other popular games that people have in mind.

I am aware that Wollay still needs to add some things to the game, but cant we just buy it and then just have constant updates like minecraft does?

Notch is famous for letting player play while he works on his next update to suprise us. If Wollay follow his footsteps maybe his game will be really popular.

Please be Christmas eve or Christmas... Please. It a great time to release it around there. Just put update on the game and everything will be fine.

wollay said...

"Are you alone in this project ?! O_o ?!"

Yes.

@aTrOz Thanks and merry chrismas. :)

"So, why don't add a random generated "outside/inside house" routine."

Good idea, need to add AI in general. Currently the AI is just random. :D

"have you been thinking about adding some physics to the voxels(the blocks)?"

Yeah I think I need to add this when I have time.

"What will happen to the dungeons/castles, after you've cleared them?"

Currently I just leave it cleared so you have a motivation to travel on and find another dungeon.

"Notch as looked at your screens, congrats!"

That's great! :)

"are the worlds endless?"

Yes.

"Do you think you're going to add a shield and/or a parade system ?"

I will add shields. You will be able to block attacks with it and do a counter attack.

"Do you think you will add some guns, gunpowders and others explosive to the game ?"

I don't think so that I will add guns, but I want to add bombs.

"How monster's levels will be managed ?"

The monster levels depend on the area. When you start the game you start in an area with low level monsters. Once you're strong enough you can explore more dangerous areas with higher level monsters. The monster level doesn't adapt to the player level.

Hey Wollay, I was just wondering if you could post like a 2 min video displaying the mount system you added last month if you have the time that would be cool to see.

1. It's randomly generated like Minecraft.
2. Yes.
3. I still need to test it.
4. I still need some time.

Exhausted said...

Wollay, any plans to give leaf voxels transparency? I don't mean to make this a Minecraft comparison comment, but seeing your epic 3D landscapes with solid leaf blocks felt strange to me.

Alternative question: Are you planning on doing more texturing to the various voxels in the game? Right now, it seems to have a lot of solid color blocks with gradient lighting, which actually looks quite good for the most part, but some blocks, like leaves and wood, could benefit from some additional texture.

This looks Really Amazing, i have a lot of respect for you because your coding it solo

Cant wait for a release :D Looks very promising

Anonymous said...

I have a few suggestions. 1. Physics, not to much but when an explosion( Because you ARE gonna have explosives) happens, then insyead of a bunch of small voxel peices comming out, have that and maube a few voxels as well. 2. Companions, I will probably be playing alot with my friend, but when I'm not, I want a buddy by my side while I brave a dungeon. Maybe you obtain the fruendship of fellow
adventurers by helping them with quests and when
they're being attacked. 3. Random robbers setting
up a trap for when you are walking down a trail. Just maybe a larger group of human enemys. 4. Enemys will fight eachother. A lizzard man fights orcs and goblins, undead fight everything. Robbers fight only those that are weaker ETC.
