Author Topic: Renderman | The Halloween 2019 Update + The Renderman Collection - See Pg. 7  (Read 14808 times)

Update has been posted by now! It's pending approval on Blockland Glass, and I'll be filling you guys in shortly.


Hello everyone.

Today I am announcing that this year's Halloween 2019 Update will be the last major update for Renderman. The last three years of making this mod have been a fun little adventure, and I want to thank you for playing.

Just to clarify: this is not a goodbye post from me. I'll still be around to fix bugs and occasionally do some smaller updates. Going forward, I plan to focus on CityRPG 4 and my other works outside of Blockland.

A lot of work has gone into this final release to make sure it is a special one, and I'm sure that it won't disappoint. This will be one of the largest single releases of Renderman content ever, and I'm excited to finally reveal it.

I hope this little mod of mine has brought spooks and fun all around. Thanks for playing.

Now, let's get to the update:



New look for the Detector and Glitch Gun
Finally, the Glitch Detector and Glitch Gun have a new look! Models by Conan.



Renderman types



Mysterious structures
Strange builds may appear if you have the "Affect bricks and lights" preference enabled.



Render nights
A new option for survival servers. Each night, there is a (configurable) chance for Render to attack for the duration of that night.

aw yeah

thanks for supporting this mod through the years. its really nice to see something keep getting support

It's nice to hear that Renderman is customizable! How I can do that? Cuz I want to try it too.

I'm planning on writing a tutorial later, but the basic idea is that you can download the pre-made Slenderman mod, open it up, open server.cs in notepad or another text editor, and from there you can edit it as you like. Some brief instructions are included in the server.cs and Support_Render_SlenderMod.cs

Can you make this its own option, I want the mod to mess with lights without having random structures appear

Nice update btw. Now it's much more spooky.

Sure, I'll look at doing this in a patch soon.

I probably should have noted that the structures always clear themselves after a short amount of time, so it won't spam up your server if that's the concern.

This new version doesn't like Support_HatMod very much. Every time I try to launch a server with HatMod and this enabled my entire game crashes. Console log just abruptly cuts off when this happens, so I have no idea what could be causing this.

post the console log here, even though it crashes. consider trying starting the server without glass as well.

Bringing you some holiday cheer... Special festive effects are active starting today, no update required.
