7 Years of Planning & development
A lot of planning, brainstorming, ideas in the works but development has not been consistent in the past years. Work was done in periods spread out in the past years. Development has picked up quickly since last year.

This includes, creating zones for multiple purposes, world exploration mechanics, custom weather, replacing vanilla trees with custom trees. Test animated windmills, gates, and other animations. Finish hand terraforming of island. Marking areas for the Stage 2 of Build Development.
