    It is supposed to be a little raised actually.. Not flat. If it's not raised there's an issue and I'll have to fix it. It may simply be an issue of the thickness needing to be exaggerated. I don't rush the items. I try to make them as nice as I can within the various restrictions of the engine and texture space etc.. -- With regards to not being able to rotate them, that is definitely wrong, so they will become rotateable after next update, if they really arent' currently.

    Depends I guess... Send me a pm and if they're meant to be rotateable I will fix it for the next update as well. I did verify the missing flags for the sleeping bag. Already corrected on my end, but it will take a while to make it's way to you guys.

    Will send a pm shortly... Meanwhile, maybe you can work on a sleeping / laying down animation.

    +infinity and more for the laying down / sleeping animation. Should also work on the bed. I mean, you just have to make the Qbee go on its back and make the same "ah" noise as when it sits.

    Ok, I understand :)
    Unlike Luca, I'm patient.

    Well we can only do so much. You probably don't realize how much work there actually is to maintain this game. Think of it from the other side Luca. If you were us and this was your game and you wanted it to do well etc... Would you slow down the updates on purpose or add as many cool wonderful things as you could and make everything as rock solid as possible? There's no benefit for us to go slow on anything. What we have to do constantly is make choices. Should I fix this glitch or work on halloween masks? Make a better friends list or improve the overworld? Add a new qbee animation or improve clans? etc.. It's all choices. It's not like we sit around saying... well more qbee animations would be awesome but we just won't bother because we hate people having fun.

    I understand that creating stuff from basically nothing other than basic coding takes time, resources and energy. I also do understand that it's all about what the majority wants, because they have a major impact on cubic.
    I'm also aware that long gone are the days when a handful of players decided what should be in a pack and what shouldn't, based off own their items and investments.
    Choices, choices and more choices. Maybe you guys could expand the team..? I mean, a small 2 1/2 (mabz also does the support part) man team can be good at first, but sooner or later they will not be able to stand up to what "the community wants to be in-game".
    Don't get me wrong, I respect the small team but really now, maybe some expanding won't hurt. I'm sure this game brings enough income to you guys. Maybe ask some friend from back when you worked at pop-cap (iirc) that knows coding to help the game.
    Now, If it was my game, I would probably ask the community every once in a while what should i/we do next. But sadly, I don't have enough money to buy the game nor the coding skills or anything else that could help the thing.
    Also every now and then I would probably stop updating the game and focus on making everything already existent as "rock solid" as possible.. It's no good to have tons of cool items if an important % of them have some kind of issue.
    And yet, I lost my patience. How you may ask? By waiting even 6 months at a time to have a medium bug fixed! Not by waiting for new content, but by bugs.

    They are trying to expand the team, they are looking for an experienced C++ user...

    I agree with expansion, one or two new additions to the team would help them a lot, and like you said, won’t cost any more then they can afford, but of course, patience is a virtue :)

    We're trying 2 new guys right now.. I don't know yet how that will work out. We'll see. If there are medium bugs that are a real problem then keep hassling me about them. Sometimes we're actually surprised by some of the bugs, because we dont' play as much as the combined players play, and when we do play we play differently than you guys do, so we can miss things, or forget about things or not realize how serious a particular bug is for players. Now in some cases a bug is very hard to fix or there's no perfect fix. In other cases the bug is part of something that we plan to shortly replace completely, so fixing it would be redundant work. So it kind of depends on what the bug is.

    Um, so. Devs, I know every item that has come out recently has gotten some people wanting it changed, and well, sorry about this, but can you make the campfire bigger? It's so itty-bitty. I've wanted a campfire for ages but I expected it to be a bit bigger ;-;
  • 120.45 Karma
    I am not disagreeing with you Jack as I not seen them in person but I think we the problem is in CC most everything is "OVER SIZED". It has been only recently that we started to get Qbee sized proportionate items and it makes them look very small even though they would be correct like the sleeping bag. My suggestion towards the devs is that in the future since a base has been established to continue with what was originally given.

    Agree, the campfires are way too small...they look like kindling starters (or the size of the coals that should be inside the grills), not actual campfires. Wish I had more yule logs to use (which are a good size) rather than these new campfires.

    Also agree the sleeping bags are way too small. They should be 1x2, otherwise they are just sleeping cushions. If necessary, maybe we should have to put two down next to each other (that then merge together like the tables), to get a full sized bag.

    Not to mention because the campfire is so tiny, it looks like a fluctuating mess of orange and grey pixels rather than a campfire.

    I was expecting a nice big fire, like the yule log or so.

    Well maybe one day we can add a 2nd "large campfire" item, but the item is as was intended. It was meant to be a small campfire.

    Honestly, I don't get why people are crying over spilt milk. Personally I love the look of them.

    I think it's more realistic compared to over items...why would you all want a campfire bigger than, for example, the items you're sitting on be it benches, 'logs' etc. But sure a bigger version would be nice too although I'll always prefer the smaller version personally

    While we are at it, maybe a 4/9 block big bonfire would be look good too?
