Unknown Horizons Release 2014.1 new features

  • Only expand settlement range for certain buildings
  • Color overlays (if running with FIFE 0.3.6 or newer)
  • Armory producing weapons
  • Button to fill lumberjack range with trees
  • Fixed some bad bugs causing the game to crash completely
  • Lots of other improvements
  • See changelog for more details about new features, improvements and fixed bugs & crashes

All in all, the new release Unknown Horizons 2014.1 provides a more stable gaming experience with new content and a bit of eye candy added as well. As some of you may have noticed already, there are several big changes happening around our engine FIFE right now. As a result of this, some new features (like the color overlays spotlighted above) are only available after a new engine release, or if you’re running a development snapshot. There is more work ahead to fully adopt our code to more of those changes, like replacing the currently used guichan library with its FIFE-maintained improved fork fifechan. Look forward to advanced text styling, many new cool widgets (e.g. for in-game statistics) and full UTF-8 support.
