Post Pictures of your sweet bases here! I am just curious how people have been decorating them.

FYI the new build, as of today, has the option if you hold down F9 it clears the UI for pretty pictures.

Creator Matush:

Hmmm would it be possible to implement some kind of snapshot feature that either on command (by pressing a button for example) or when exiting the game or even every certain amount of time - automatically takes a picture of the whole base area and saves it in for example the game's folder? It could act as a timelapse to see how our bases are progressing/growing over time and it would make sharing whole various base designs a lot easier.


That is a pretty cool idea actually. I'd have to figure out the time lapse thing, but I like the idea! I know game_maker has a screen_save command. I've added it when you hold down F9 it saves the screen shot into a folder. It will go into my next big update.





What do windmills do?

I mean, they spin yeah, but what are they *for*? 

I haven't had a chance to try them out yet.


They generate power when spinning.

jeez, I must be getting old.

Can't believe that didn't occur to me.

Also it's weird, because I posted this 3 hours ago.

And you responded a minute ago.

So now it's gonna look like I've been sitting here the whole time waiting on a reply lol.


lol :)



HAHA download the newest version :)

It was pretty funny. I just finished the quest helping that "daycare" and started planting my cacti, suddenly I realized there were a growing number of children behind me. Turned into Children of the Corn.


lol I laughed pretty hard when I saw it the first time too :)


your game is fantastic, I didn't got bored for it even for a second. I really looking forward for future updates.

Also I would love it if you make a thread for suggestions. I got super inspired for playing and I have too much ideas.


Really nice base! Much better then mine. I have stuff thrown around everywhere :) You are right about a suggestion thread. I'll make one right now!

I decided that my third camp will be my devmode playground and the first thing I made is a race track!


HA! Love it! I need to fix the track marks blink in the car (thanks for the unintentional bug find :) )
