    Update!

    • Gave the game a name!  (Beyond Terra)
    • Added another Location
    • Added more Rocks / Terrain
    • Added a title screen to Host / Join / Type in an IP Address / Quit
    • Modeled a concept of the Citadel




    Fun Update!

    • Added the Cargo Ship.  They spawn every 8ish minutes and fly across the map.  You can destroy them and they drop their cargo which contains rare weapons and useful supplies.  I plan on adding defenses to the ship to make it a challenging yet rewarding opportunity for players.
    • Added Xhaad the trader.  Xhaad is an alien barterer that will sell you supplies in exchange for batteries.
    • Added a new location - Shipwreck
    • Various bug fixes
    • Wrote some music for the title screen and death screen

    Update!

    • Added the Sentinel - The Sentinel spawns at the Citadel and roams the map and then comes back.  They spawn every 1-2 minutes and drop useful items when destroyed.  Don't get too close though!
    • Added turrets to the cargo ship
    • Added a new weapon - the Plasma Accelerator
    • Started designing a heavily guarded base which will likely contain powerful weapons in the future.
    • Added a new Location
    • Fixed a bunch of bugs


    Update!

    I decided to make scrap metal a sort of currency and possibly a building material in the future.  You can find scrap metal in drops or you can break down certain items into scrap at a Trash Compactor.

    • Added lots of garbage items that can be broken down into scrap
    • Added the Trash Compactor.  The Trash Compactor breaks down garbage items into scrap.
    • Added special items.  Special items boost certain abilities or stats.  For example, the MediBot is a special item that regenerates your health slowly and the Advanced Thrusters increase your jetpack speed;
    • Fixed tons of bugs
    • You can right click to drop in the inventory


      Update!  

      The project is really coming together :)

      • The map is mostly finished although I am going to add more locations in the future
      • The military base is complete and when you invade it and destroy all of the enemies and sentry guns, you can disable the sheild that protects the citadel.  To beat the game, you must invade the citadel and steal a spacecraft to go back home.  (This isn't just another endless survival game with no end goal)
      • Added an alien with a pistol that shoots at you.
      • Added one new location
      • Added a few basic items
      • Improved some graphical stuff
