I like how the buckets of water are upside down for a fair bit of the journey xD

Yes. This completely has to happen.

Actually, it might be an idea to suggest a build contest in the meantime as well; to keep ourselves occupied while waiting (avoid the 0.5 situation where the game basically dies while everyone waits for the upcoming awesomeness) and to get our creative juices flowing... after all, we've only had one after "the Great Building Block Revolution"; it's time for another, no?

Yes.. yes it is. I've been waiting for too long, forgetting how to play the game.

Yeah. Imagine new strategy with digging hole and killing all monsters with water. Than pumping water out to mine those precious metals.

Yes and no.

IF you flood your cave from a lake not tied to a river then sure in theory you could pump all the water out and even let it evaporate away (if you pump it far enough away).

But if you dig in to the river you have the issue that water is infinite.. so no matter how much you pump out it won't stop flooding.. a way to go about it is to use floodgates/walls to box off sections of your town - so if you did make a leak you only lose so much.. Sorta like a ship..

So flooding can still be an issue.. but we at lest have tools against it now.

I second that motion! Let's make this happen!

(but not just yet - we still have to figure out how the new stuff works ;))
