Experimental Branch Update! v 0.3.9

Greetings Pioneers!

Plus a happy new year! although somewhat late.. Quite a few changes and additions have been dropped for this update, mainly focused around improvements to the immersive feel and design of the starting environment as a whole.

We’ve added a visual weather/storm feature of which the importance will become more apparent when the world is expanded! All improvements are listed below, including additions of a cave system and revised AI placements.

Update your experimental branch to gain access to these latest changes. If you need a reminder on how to do this you can follow our previous post here.
