Seriously, something needs to happen,

The title says it all

It's dead, but not as dead as the chat.

I tried many things: Working on SoT, started map contests, started a joint map building(in which I remind you, Matthew, were supposed to contribute), started a Minecraft texture port project and, I created one or two forum games. But my efforts were proved to be fruitless.

There were also a few other community projects, the most recent one started by Guma died before it was even decided what kind of game the community wanted to create. I think the reason why there is nothing  happening is because no one wants for something to happen, nor do they care when something does happen. ofc there is one obvious exception.

Jack was making terrablox open source. If he doesnt wanna work on it anymore he can release the source and we'd be more than happy to work with it

I've struggled to commit to anything dev related for a long time. The only things I've made much progress with recently are addictions and problems. We all need to get on Skype together again, you guys are more reliable than me atm.

Progress is progress nonetheless, if by working on yourself you can overcome the things getting on your way, then it will eventually help achieve other things you want to do.

For future reference, so that everyone knows, I'm called Random Cipher on skype. But I'm not on most of the time. Good luck ever getting to chat/talk with me. But, I'm on terrablox.chatango.com from time to time. I'll be there for what's left of the week in case anyone want to chat.

I done a thing: https://i.gyazo.com/a1a6c87228e667934a43a675b8247605.gif (It looks at blocks again, however far away)

So next thing is adding blocks and removing blocks again, then we're getting somewhere finally, lol.

You guys will be please to know I left my job, I have a good personal budget to work with for a while, and I wanna make stuff. This won't be my only thing, but I definitely want to get back onto this.

Also, I dunno if I gave out a demo before, but: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/33776055/tbdemo.zip

Well, I'm not entirely pleased that you left your job, because it worries me. But if you left it, it must mean that it was not the job you were looking for. Hopefully you'll eventually find something that makes you happy :)

But I am glad that you're back on this project again :D
Also the demo runs quite smoothly on my pc, 180 fps at most times :D

Well, my job wasn't getting me anywhere any more. Wasn't doing enough. And I won't be living in a box on the street for a while, don't worry. I'm good, I'm happy, I'm gonna make some freaking games. :p

Glad you like the demo, I'm actually surprised it was working at all! I spent 3 hours last night trying to solve a "data structure with index doesn't exist" error, which I hate because it's like ".... WHAT DATA STRUCTURE, YOU MUPPET!?!", which only occurred when floating around a gig of memory and creating a new quad-tree entry. All of which I put fail-safes in and still it was happening!
Had another look this morning and found out the structure it was trying to use was in fact an array (which was meant to hold ds_maps)... Derp. So I went through and put [ 0 ] in front of every occurrence, low and behold, it works again. Somehow it worked before, magically, damn you GM! >.<

The demo is awesome! The generation is really nice and the rivers are pristine! Though i cant figure out how to move the camera if there is even a way.

Press F3 to lock the camera onto the mouse (says in the top left), WASD to move it. :)
