New Consumables

With the Power Tools update enabling players to complete their construction projects faster, the Consumables Update aims to keep players building longer.

By introducing new new food & drink options, and also the ability to carry these consumables in the tool belt pouch, players will be able to restore energy easily throughout the day. Allowing them to work harder for longer, just make sure not to overdo it, otherwise you may suffer a hangover.

New consumables include:

  • Bottles of Landlord’s Super & Doyle
  • Shots of whiskey, vodka & rum
  • Bottles of whiskey, vodka & rum
  • Glasses of red, white & rosé wine
  • Bottles of red, white & rosé wine
  • Packets of fish, bacon & pork pub snacks

Graphical Overhaul

Work continues on improving the visual quality of the game. Rain effects are now more pronounced to give a better impression of it’s effects, but we’ve gone even further with characters and the Anchor Tavern.

All characters in Sheffingham have had a visual overhaul. Animations have been redone, with every character having their own unique talking and emotional states. Textures and shading on the models have been improved, and each character now has their own set of eyes and teeth.

The Anchor Tavern has also had a renovation. Furniture has been remodelled and textures to include specular and normal effects, bringing them up to the quality of other furniture in the game. The stage has been given a set of speakers and microphone. There’s two TVs that players can use to check the weather report. There’s now a fruit machine to lose money on, and the pub has been given it’s own beer garden.

Fruit Machine

Players can now gamble their earnings away at the Anchor Tavern on the brand new “Peachy Bums” fruit machine.

Hangovers & Other Changes

Players will now wake up later than normal, and with a hangover, if they drink too much the day before. Hangovers blur vision occasionally and can cause your character to vomit. With the addition of new alcoholic consumables, achieving a hangover is easily done.

Other changes are included in the change list below.
