Hi there, I'm a big fan of Eden - World Builder. Here are some suggestions for futures updates:
  1. Fix the resolution: Rectangular block are actually not looking good, they are square in all the other sandbox game. This ruins the quality of the game.
  2. Improve the portals: Make them so that they are usable from the charged chunk to a non-charged chunk. This is how they should work, if not they are almost useless. Fix them so that doors don't be destroyed if they are in front of a portal. Also, allow the coloration on the back side of portals... we can paint everything, so why not this?
  3. Fix the light blocks: Light is great, but sides of the block which are not exposed should not be lighter.
  4. Put shadow as an on/off option: This could be a way to support the old device by keeping a nice game experience for the new devices.
  5. Add an in-game option to prevent falling: A kind of security to not fall and place block just in front of a block, as we could build a row of block in the air from a single block without falling.
  6. Increase the height limit: 16 blocks more would be already greater. I always be restrained by the height limit, this one is way higher on other game too.
  7. Increase the number of available shiny cubes:  Maybe as much as we want with a counter on the icon so that we know how much there is on the map.
  8. Double door: This would be nice and not too hard to implement.
  9. ½ blocks and big blocks: That would be the best thing that could be add on this game. That would definitively make the difference.
  10. Ability to cote a world as “good”or “bad”: Great way to make the pop list, it's way more efficient than the actual way. 
  11. Ability to sort the worlds in function of their number of visits: An other way to cote the worlds.
  12. Ability to choose a particular terrain gen for a world: This option is now becoming interesting with all the new terrain gens.
See the complete article about my first impressions of Eden - World Builder 2.0 here:
 
Thanks for reading.

1. Agree!

2. Major agree!

3. Agree.

4. Indifferent to it.

5. Actually, yeah, not a bad idea as an alternative to flying.

6. Indifferent to it. But apparently, judging by what people are saying, 64 is too low! 

7. AGREE. Please, Ari.

8. Sure.

9. Indifferent. Programmatically quite complex...

10. Agree (with additional features as well).

11. Yeah.

12. Not too sure what this means, but if it's what I'm thinking, then I agree.

The distortion is the worst part of the update.

 

I'm happy to know that every one noticed this horrible distortion! :D

 

9. Indifferent. Programmatically quite complex...

12. Not too sure what this means, but if it's what I'm thinking, then I agree.

 

I'm a student programming, I know that small/big block ability is kind of a challenge to do, but I seen that they were almost here, then I would have liked to see this added. And for the last point, I mean the possibility to have for example a world with just mountains.

Yeah, I like the idea #12. In fact, I'm doing something like that in my own engine - where the user can select which components of the terrain and which biomes get generated. 

 

For me, it's more of an experimental/hobby project. I'd like to see Ari add it for Eden as well.

 

The small and large blocks... yeah. Ari even had pictures of them at one point, but I'm guessing that too many bugs came up from it and that stopped him. 

 

If he wants to reconsider it and try to get it to work, I see no reason not to. More tools to build with :)

We need an undo button. I see that Jason put that in his voxel engine, and it would be very helpful in eden

Just one comment:

 

Double door: This would be nice and not too hard to implement.

 

Why can't you put two doors side by side facing opposite directions? It looks just like a double door and they open in opposite directions, so the people walking in and the people walking out can both push the door open as they walk. Just like in a bank or a supermarket.

 

Also, nice avatar  ;)  (okay, two comments, but that doesn't count because it wasn't your suggestion)

In the App Store, the 4th sample screen shot is from my world: Tokyo Unified Amuro'44121191'53 (compare)

The official version has the date 10/11/2015. Accept no substitutes™  ^_^  (I also figured out the file format)
