Medieval Engineers 0.6.3: Changes! Whats inside the new update to Medieval Engineers?

Medieval Engineers 0.6.3: Game performance has been improved, and lots of old bugs have been squashed. Check out the changes and new additions

Greetings Engineers! Medieval Engineers version 0.6.3 brings a host of new changes and fixes. Version 0.6.3 is here to improve your quality of life and looks of your buildings! Below we have left the details needed to stay up to date:

New Blocks:

These new blocks are very detailed and compound like all other walls. The new railings are at a much more reasonable height, and the new floors fit much better with all of the new wood textures that have been introduced in 0.6 so far. Take a look at the details and pictures below:

  • Added set of wooden walls, with and without doors, windows and matching roof wall pieces.
  • Floor texture has been updated to better fit the new walls. This also includes the portcullis, trap door, etc.
  • Updated the wooden railings model, it has a correct height for a railing, and it comes in both small railing and ceiling support styles.

Player Changes:

Along with the new blocks and the many general fixes, the player stats have been given changes as well. Overhauled stats for the food system is what to expect. Take a look at the list of the changes made here:

  • Overhauled stats and food system to make it more friendly to new players and more interesting to advanced players.
  • Eating good food over a longer period of time will slowly raise your character's overall well-being, increasing your maximum health and stamina, as well as improving the rate at which you swing your tools and weapons.
  • Food now grants other positive effects making cooking more rewarding.
  • Hungry players no longer starve to death, instead, they will suffer regeneration loss, reduced building speed, and eventually loss in well-being.
  • The health/stamina/food bars have been updated to reflect the new system.
  • All food has been altered, some recipes have been removed, new ones were added, models were updated and effects are introduced.
  • Vanilla consumables no longer produce instantaneous healing effects, preventing combatants from keeping themselves alive by spamming it during battle.

A full list of the changes and fixes made with the introductions of 0.6.1:

General Changes:
- Improved loading times by more efficient data management of plants and trees.
- Refactored Windows Service interface, this should allow dedicated server services to be managed more easily by Windows.
- Fast travelling now consumes food, your maximum travel distance is limited by how well fed you are, so bring some food while traveling!
