UPDATE 0.08! DOORS, WINDOWS AND MORE!

35d1451a53a66a4eacec3da2bf64dd852ef3b278Hi guys,

The latest build 0.08 has just been released!

This build features more extensions to the building system with new doors, arches, windows and half-walls! There’s new pieces for each building tier, totalling 20 new pieces. It’s worth mentioning that there’s been some refactoring of our building system’s connector code to allow it to be completely universal to support the new raft system coming soon, so there’s a possibility that your existing saved structures might load back inccorectly. Please try replicating any bugs on a new structure before posting them. There’s also been some performance tweaks that should improve performance for systems with lower-end CPUs.

Have fun!
