(+) Added loader!
(*) Bugfixes
(-) Removed information about cloud data (lists & variables that appeared when you started the project now doesn't show anymore)

EDIT: Also, it's v.1.1! That means that we're 90% from beta now (Beta will be released at v.2.0)

Development will be slowed down due to:

1. School
2. I'm working on 2 things in Minecraft too. When I'm finished with these things I'll spend more time on this project

EDIT: First thing (the airplane) in Minecraft done. Now only the castle is left. This means that I'll work more on the Scratch project.

What I'll do first:
1. School (Homework, other)
2. Scratch
3. Minecraft

On weekends:
1. Scratch
2. Minecraft
3. School

CLOUD UPDATE:


(+) Added new variable, “CLOUD_preStorage”, that stores your username before it gets added to the cloud data
(*) Cloud data bugfixes:
- Fixed bug where usernames not registered correctly made the system crash and the project then never loaded.
(*) Changed the way the project registers usernames, so that it works a lot better!

Vector World [NOW HIRING]

I've made some small updates this weekend

Here are some of the things I'm planning on adding and why some of them are delayed/not being worked on:

- Butterflies (background feature, animated)
[0% Done, not being worked on because texture isn't done yet and I'm not sure which scripts I should make. This also might cause more lag.]

- More characters (Pico, Gobo, Tera, Nano, Giga, Scratch Cat)
[10% Done]

- Day & Night (When the sky is dark in real like, the sky in the game could be dark as well, using time zones & other stuff)
[10% Done, delayed because it's hard to make it and might cause more lag]

- New texture to ponds
[50% Done, the scripts are done but the texture isn't]

- Options window; sound settings, music settings, controls, change music, etc.
[30% Done, delayed because I'm currently focusing on the menu]

- Menu window; world select, create world, etc.
[75% Done]

It might have been because I've worked on other projects recently I only have time to work on it on the weekends and sometimes I'm working with Java projects instead. But I hope I'll have time to work on the project this weekend!

This game has improved quite a bit since I joined!

I suppose you should have something better to do then just read over my signature, right? Maybe view projects, read a book, go outside.. I wonder if you are still reading this. Well, I guess I should tell a bit about me ( ͠°ᴥ °). I am xsnail, a Scratcher. I cannot elaborate on such text, if you believe that I should do so. I guess I should, if I intend to fill this whole signature (ꗞωꗞ). Maybe I should just add a large amount of those faces. They are quite pleasant, and they would fill this up! But text is more boring, and my favorite things are making people bored and confused. Wow, I just share a bit more about myself! Maybe you should start doing so (¬ᨎ¬)……….. So I guess you are going to stay quiet this whoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooole time? That took up a good portion of space if I do say so myself. At least I am saying something unlike you.. I will not stand for this!! I shall find a way to do this Herculean task. Not even those random bold and italic and strike through and underline made you speak That is very strange behavior. GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH you must say something somehow and i will find out what must i do what must i say what must i type what must i DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IKNOW!!!!! I will put down Scratch blocks! Then you will surely converse with me! I changed my mind, I don't want to ☞ ͡(⎚﹏ ͡⎚)☞. That's it. I am not mad, I just will not ask for a response now, this is taking up my time and your time. I'll do all the talking now, and you will stay put this entire time. And if I hear a peep out of you, I WILL ANNIHILATE oh sorry i may have gotten a bit carried away there but NO MATTER. I will now talk to you My name is xsna- oh dear, I may have already stated that, haven't I? Well th-then what should I say. GIBBERISH. I will speak gibberish for the remainder alright so listen up. AQefccdyhedibfhiue-and how did you like that?

Cloud data bug is now fixed and the username registering system has been improved

It now loads a lot faster than before and should be able to handle to register more than 100 usernames in only a few seconds!

[quote][b]About[/b]
Theme: [i]Nature[/i]

[i]Vector World is a game where you'll be able to create your own nature(world). You'll be able to choose between lots of different objects to place in your world, such as clouds, water, trees, apples, etc. You'll also be able to choose a world to start with and then add your objects and change it, for example maybe you want to create an ocean. Then you can just simply choose an ocean world and then add some fishes, corals and islands.

You'll also be able to share your work to other people so they can see what you've created. Using cloud variables and lists you can also chat with other people in a [b]safe chat.[/b]

Objects in your world can also interact with other objects. For example: [b]Apples[/b] change color and when they get red they fall to the ground and if they hit another apple they bounce away. They also bounce when the touch the ground and rotate slightly. [b]Clouds[/b] appears randomly on the sky, flies around in the wind direction and gets darker by the time. When they're close enough to the ground they start to rain and puddles appears on the ground.

Vector World [NOW HIRING]

Latest release date for Vector World: 1;st June 2015

But the project will probably be released earlier I just calculated this using this information:

I started to work on the project at some point in June.
The project is 33% done (1 / 3) in October which means that it took 4 months to get this far.
This means that it might take another 8 months (33% + 67% = 100%, 67% = 4 months * 2 = 8 months) before the project gets released.
8 months after October –> June.


This actually also means that it might take a whole year before the project gets finished :O

EDIT: However, it probably will go faster to develop the project now when we got several developers, artist and testers!
