The bad news is that TUG players can no longer load up and play any of their saved games. The good news is the reason why: The 0.8.5 tech update to the terrain is so drastic that all prior versions are no longer compatible. The upcoming sandbox’s latest Kickstarter update announces that this version marks the big turn to the 2.0 engine and includes a major reworking of the biomes, terrain, and creative mode system. Seeds can also now move between fat and skinny based on gameplay, and for players longing to pad their weight with coconuts, those can now be both harvested and planted.
See some of these changes in the video below and read a full accounting of all them in the detailed patch notes. Then stay tuned over the next couple of months for “a lot of fairly huge announcements on the future of TUG.”
