    Wow, an hour a half old and no replies?

    But really.... 1.3.4 is on Unstable now? That's some much needed signs of life... is that the same as Nightly?

    @Kawa : Well, I more meant the "beta" opt-in on Steam... even if it isn't really called Nightly anymore...

    But anyways, glad to see a new dev blog either way.

    They're ALIVE! Oh, I mean of course they're alive. I can't say this is an exciting or amazing news, but yes, at least it is good news and a good thing to know they're still rolling.

    Kawa posted the change log above.

    @Kawa: Oh, right... derp I didn't see that in the steam list... it's been awhile since I messed with unstable/etc.

    Unstable is an inbetween of nightly and stable.

    Should be posted when it hits stable.

    Nice to hear that things are bubbling under the hood, even though I've moved away from using Discord. :) One thing that I would really love to see (hear) is support for positional audio in Mumble. (Mumble is an open source voice-over-ip program, designed with gaming in mind, that I prefer to use and find superior to all the alternatives that I have tried). Here is an example of positional audio when playing Minecraft: . Imagine playing Starbound and being able to hear your team-mates from above/below/right/left depending where they are in relation to you. Could be pretty nifty, eh? :) I think if there was an API for the player positions in Starbound somebody could write a plugin for Mumble. Currently there is none for Starbound:

    Yeah, like what he said. You guys need to be more active in the community, informing us news about the progress you guys did, no matter how small it is, no matter how dissapointing or boring it is (well, I believe it is not that bad). Just let us know how you guys doing.

    They could have taken advantage to fix some problems, bugs, etc, small but necessary things, anyway.

    Glad you're happy to see an update - appreciate it's a functionality based one this time, but as we said, things are bubbling in the background here and we'll be sharing more news *as soon as we can*
    P.S. can confirm all alive

    Functionality updates are the best kinds of updates, especially if they involve new APIs.

    Modding is such a huge part of the Starbound experience, that anything that gives modders more tools in the toolbox is something that's going to expand the game by leaps and bounds. Please don't take offense if it sounds like I am belittling the efforts of Chucklefish developers, but the simple fact of it is, that modders out-number the devs by thousands to one, so if you give us new tools to mod with, you're going to see far more content than the devs could produce themselves.
