    Summary
    Hello, Engineers! This week we bring you the first batch of bugfixes and improvements - but we also tried to spice things up because of the season! You can now craft your own Christmas tree and use it to make your houses more festive! The deer are enjoying some holiday spirit too. ;)
    Additionally, player names have made their comeback! They haven't been working for a while, but we finally got around to fixing them. The is now a world setting for enabling this feature, which enables and disables it for everyone in the game. Previously you could turn off your own name by pressing O, but this has been removed, and instead you can hide your name by crouching. This way you can still sneak up on people, without the game having a strange broadcasting feature.

    Happy Holidays from everyone in Medieval Team and have fun!



    Features
    - Added Christmas Tree, you can craft it in your inventory screen, and place it inside your house.
    - Added Festive Deer, they're responding to the holiday spirit in mysterious ways..
    - Player names are back! Crouch to hide them.

    Fixes

    - Improved iron pickaxe durability.
    - Added an in-between growth state for flax.
    - Fixed MWMBuilder in ModSDK, it should now work properly again.
    - Fixed some bugs that were making seeding difficult, the error message is now more descriptive and some of the checks were improved.
    - Fixed some situations where the plants could become unharvestable.
    - Fixed sun rotation on some servers, it was broken because of a mistake in the world settings that was unconfigurable.
    - Fixed some localization errors.

    Update 0.4.1.91560:

    Fixes:

    - Fixed sound effects on the axes.
    - Fixed particle effect offset on christmas tree.
    - Fixed the problem where you couldn't change your skin after changing to deer or barbarian in creative mode.
    - Fixed a gravity-skippy effect when flying around in creative mode.
    - Fixed a crash when double-jumping as a deer.
    - Fixed more crashes with regards to the plants.

    Huh. I was wondering about that "name broadcasting" feature for a while now, especially since names were not being shown to begin with. It makes more sense now. Looks like a solid update overall, good work ME Keens!

    There should be several crash fixes in this update, please let us know if your servers are still crashing, and if possible, keep sending us server crash logs! :)

    But was the direction of the sun's rotation fixed or does the sun still set in the east?

    Constantly? We have a handful of crashes received from the reporting tool, but they aren't so many to qualify for constantly. Can you post me your crashlog? We are preparing some crash fixes for the patch later today. :)

    I see. We will need crash logs from them then, we fixed the most prevalent crashes today, so I hope their experience is a lot better now. :)

    for me the biggest problem now are those bugging inventries.. every single relog some (lot) of my inventories/chests are bugged.. that is SO annoying.. it is nearly starting to be game breaker for me.. :( (jeetrix said that he reported that one and you said it's very difficult to repair that, that is why I didn't raised a bug report, but for the gods sake, try to do something with that.. :( please)

    Yeah we're still battling the inventory desyncs. This week we released some improvements on it, and it should be in a state that it now works almost correctly, except sometimes for the first item you interact with. It would still transfer from the chest to your inventory, but then stay 'behind' in the chest as well. There's something really strange going on, and the programmer working on it for the past week is still trying to understand where that problem is coming from. It's a long battle against a rather problematic bug. :( We will prevail, eventually!

    I hate to be a downer, but it's as bad as it's ever been. At least for me, on the server I played on the past week. Doesn't even matter if I am interacting with the chest for the first time after placing it.

    Also, doors and windows desync like crazy for me. The symptoms are that the doors and windows appear either permanently fully open or closed. It is still possible to open and close doors and windows, however the model does not update. I can check whether a door is actually open by running into it. The hitbox will either stop me when it's closed or let me pass when it's open.
    There is also an extreme version of this desync that prevents me from even interacting with a door until I destroy and replace (hack) it.
