    Hello everyone,

    We have another new coder! Please give a massive hello to the lovely @Sdarks (Sam Dark).

    After previously working for Dovetail games, focusing primarily on their physics engines for Train Simulator and a bunch of cool UI stuff for Flight Simulator - he has made the move to Payload Studios to get his hands on some more physics sandbox goodness.

    Sam has already fixed a bunch of bugs in his time here - helping us shape everything up in time for 1.0 release. We're very glad to have him aboard.

    Say hi @Sdarks !

    See, it's funny because he's the 'new' guy.:p;)

    Been working on any particularly interesting code lately (that you can tell us about)?

    You do realise that your usually not supposed to explain the joke, right?

    Mostly just working on cleaning things up for 1.0 and console, fixed a lot of bugs (some of which I've posted about on here some are still to come) and tweaked some things. The "Interesting" code will come after and I almost certainly wouldn't want to talk about it until it's ready because it tends to get people hyped for stuff that either may take a long time to be playable or never end up finished and out in the wild :)

    Woot. Waiting on that next unstable, largely to see if Kris really is going to enable crafting blocks a level above (since it'll greatly affect my YouTube playthrough).

    Mmm, indeed. So I'll read that as new features/new block functionality (or augmented AI), if it would engender hype (who cares that much about making crafting less riddled with holes?). The drought would always have to end eventually...:)

    Ohno I was really late to the party. :confused:
    At least I said hi on Discord though. Hello and welcome here on the forums anyway!
    Good luck and have fun in your new job. Squash 'em bugs real good. Do great things.

    I hope Sam is short for Samuel. Samuel Dark is a totally metal name! \m/(-.-)\m/
