New Revolver and Genetics – Devblog 144

Short summary of what got changed/added:

  • Added Python Revolver: it’s a slow firing, high-damage pistol. It isn’t great at range, but is better than the other revolver and the P250. It only has 6 shots and high recoil.
  • Farming 1.7: When you place a seed, the created plant has random genetics. Right now these genetics determine its growth speed. If you notice one plant is growing much faster than the rest, it is probably due to it having good genes. I’ve added a system that allows you to take a clipping of a plant by holding down E instead of just harvesting it.
    The G-number associated with the plant indicates its genetics, a value from 0-10000. The higher the number, the better the genes. You can replant the clone just like you would a seed and selectively breed only the best plants.
  • Resources and junk piles won’t spawn next to your base
  • Various Optimizations
