Full-length changelog:

----- Vehicles: -----

Vehicles have been added to the game! Transport powerful mining machinery to conquer the caverns. To

control the vehicles, your miners will have to train as Drivers, Pilots, or Sailors. Vehicles exclusively

cost crystals to teleport down and exclusively costs Ore to upgrade (Studs count too).


- Added 12 vehicles

- Hover Scout: An incredibly quick transport vehicle.

- (NEW) Use the new Leap feature to leap across impassable terrain! (double-click it)

- Speed across caverns!

- Requires no training

- Small Digger: A quick but weak drilling vehicle. It takes reduced damage from landslides.

- Small Transport Truck: A quick vehicle used to collect and distribute resources!

It can not transport Dynamite or Barriers.

- Small Mobile Laser Cutter: A small vehicle carrying a laser. Double click on it

to use it!

- Rapid Rider: A small catamaran that can carry resources over water. Will automatically 

collect Crystals that have fallen into water. They will collect at the Docks.

- (NEW) Use the new Leap feature to leap across impassable terrain! (double-click it)

- (NEW) Upgrade the drill function to drill seaside walls! (Upgrades at Docks)

- Tunnel Scout: A small helicopter that can fly over any terrain. Upgrade it to

give it light drilling capabilities.

- Loader Dozer: Master of landslides. Clears rubble and reinforces walls. Does not

take damage from landslides.

- Large Mobile Laser Cutter: A tough vehicle outfitted with two high-damage lasers. 


- Granite Grinder: A walking mech-like vehicle with good drilling capabilities and

a pretty high speed. It takes reduced damage from landslides.

- (NEW) Use the new Leap feature to leap across impassable terrain! (double-click it)

- Chrome Chrusher: The strongest drilling vehicle that exists. It is slower than the

Granite Grinder. It also has a weaker laser to defend against 

monsters. It has been granted a powerful Leaping ability. It takes 

reduced damage from landslides.

- Tunnel Transport: A large utility vehicle. It can carry resources and vehicles over any terrain.

Double-click to activate transport ability, then select a target.

- Cargo Carrier: Carries vehicles over water and potentially lava. Double-click to 

activate transport ability, then select a target.


- Crystal costs and dependencies have been adjusted to better fit the new abilities of the vehicles.

- Vehicles are automatically queued to be entered when they are teleported down. 

- Cancel entering Vehicle command added (Only through hotkey C for now)

- Miners can carry one resource with them into any vehicle, including Hover Scout.

- Water vehicles deposit resources on nearby land by command or at the Docks automatically.

- Water vehicles can be entered and exited if near land at a quite generous distance

- The vehicle HUD is different from Lego Rock Raiders: Exit/Enter and Load/Unload replace 

each other when one is disabled. Also note that in multi-select, the HUD will always

default to assuming the "First selected" Vehicle is what should be used. 

- Vehicles now have a "Carry meter" to show how full their capacity is

- Vehicle upgrades: Upgrade your vehicles to enhance their abilities! Each vehicle has unique upgrades.

    - All upgrades have been reworked from the original game and some have been removed.

    - Vehicles can now be repaired at an Upgrade Station for free.

====
----- Lasers: ---- ==== Lasers can be found on vehicles or on buildings (Only the Mining Laser right now). They are incredibly

powerful but requires careful management of your Energy Crystals!


- Lasers have a "free radius" where shots cost nothing. If the Crystal cost counter is gray, 

that means the shot will not cost anything.

- Laser shots consume crystals if shot outside of the free radius. The discharged 

crystals appears at the nearest power station if available. 

Recharge the crystals at a recharge seam!

(!) If no seam is available, be careful with using lasers as the crystals 

will be PERMANENTLY drained

- Cost stacks between shots. If the first shot costs 0.5 crystals it will not consume a crystal

- Lasers have infinite range

- The cost of a shot goes up with distance

- Cost stacks between shots. If the first shot costs 0.5 crystals it will not consume a crystal

- The lasers are balanced so that the mining efficiency is the following:

Mining Laser > LMLC > Chrome Crusher> SMLC , 

as the CC should mostly use it as defense, but that won't be available until next update.

- Hold the mouse for continuous fire (not working for the Mining Laser right now)

- Lasers CAN hit the roof of the cavern, even when it's hidden so watch out! If there is no cursor, think it through!

- Lasers CAN be fired while a laser vehicle is transported. Just double-click the transporting vehicle!

---- Buildings: -----

- Added new building: Canteen! Once cut from the beta stage of Rock Raiders, it now makes its comeback! This building

   is designed to alleviate the role of the Support Station and allow sandwich dispensing to be available anywhere in 

   the cavern without power requirements. You can also use it as a replacement for the Tool Store on adventure-oriented

   maps.

- Cost: 15 Ore and 1 Crystal

- Requires: Nothing

- 3-tile footprint

- Provides air for 5 miners

- Dispenses sandwiches

- Does not require power


- Added upgrade effect!

- The Mining Laser now shoots lasers!

- The Buildings menu now has proper, updated tooltips describing what the Buildings do and cost.

- The Docks only costs 8 Ore, no crystals, and is placable after a LVL 2 Tool Store

- Dependencies have been re-worked:

- The max upgrade to unlock other buildings and vehicles is now always 2

- The Tool Store unlocks Dynamite at level 3

- The Geological Center can be upgraded to level 5

- Small Vehicles are available after you construct the Power Station. This means that if you have

Rock Raiders from previous levels trained as Drivers, you can immediately start using

Small Vehicles

- Multi-select commands now properly work

- Moved level display to above the health meter

- Added dispense-resource buttons to the Tool Store


----- Creatures: -----

- Small Spiders have been spotted in the game. Watch out!

- These ferocious foot predators will cause your Rock Raiders to slip clumsily, taking 10 seconds to recover

- Spiders also deal 2 damage to Rock Raiders

- If a vehicle drives over a spider, the spider is crushed

- Can be explicitly placed in the editor .Please load the level as "Flattened" to place them inside of walls!

- Can be randomly spawned through the level file by setting the level parameter "spiderchance:X.X". This 

sets the standard deviation of a Gaussian probability distribution so that more than onen spider 

can spawn per tile. A value of 1 thus means more than 1 spider spawns on average. 0.1 is a good 

default value.

Enter the LMS Explorer! It has 3 rooms right now but will be expanded to be a more interactive environment in the future.


- Crew management!

   - Name your miners with ENTER and they will get saved by the game

   - Enter the LMS Explorer to assemble your crew

   - Switch between crew groups freely

- Miners in vehicles are automatically saved! 

- Vehicle themselves are always saved.

- Vehicles can be hidden in caverns

- Added "initial resources" to the Objectives menu

- Added Vehicles menu button

- Added Small Spider to the spawn menu. To place those optimally, please use the "Flattened" mode, then save them.

Opening the wall triggers their physics so they fall through the world if you are not careful.

- Click a Small Spider to remove it

- Added "Mangle terrain" which randomizes the height change in an area (a bit broken right now)

- Replaced "Free buildings" with "Free stuff" toggle as it applies to everything, including trainings

- Load levels by clickable buttons instead of typing their names

- Objectives won't be completed while editing the level

- Moved camera button to top saving bar

- You can now change the identity of miners to the Rock Raiders crew! They will always load as default and are

different from any crew members you might unlock for customization. They all start at level 1 with one

specific training each. See the campaign for demonstrations on how to use this.

- Caves are now toggles instead of placing flags. NOTE: You have to re-place caves if you expand them or they'll cause voids in the world!

- A new tile type has been added: Cliff! The cliff tile is completely untraversable and prevents vehicles from falling over edges. There is a demonstration map in the official maps DEMO folder.

----- Resources: -----

- Crystals now glow beautifully

- Crystals are no longer destroyed in lava (Ore still is)

- Crystals and Ore no longer sink in water and can be collected by any vehicle that reach them.

  Rapid Rider is a good budget choice for this BUT be sure it can drop them off!

  Place a Docks where it can reach, or a Tool Store near the water

- Seams now spawn resources on a nearby tile instead of directly from the wall, to ensure they can be collected

- Dynamite now primes nearby dynamites when exploding (within ~1 tile). Watch out how many you queue at once!

- Removed "Complex physics" option, all resources now use simple box-based collisions


----- User Interface: -----

these Power Paths will always be built before everything else (Including Erosion repairs!!)

- Added "Select all" buttons for Miners, Buildings and Vehicles in the Information UI.

- Added "Powered/Total buildings" counter. Click the number to toggle between them.

----- Scripting: -----

- The scripting system is extremely expansive and allows level creators to define level-specific responses 

to what happens in the level. For example, you can set up a goal that the player has to teleport 

down 20 miners and then clear the floor of rubble. Please check the DEMO files for demonstrations 

and the Wiki documentation for details. You can even create Blackjack in-game! 

(https://manicminers.fandom.com/wiki/Scripting)

----- Settings: -----

- Settings are now saved globally and not in the ManicMiners folder

- Added player profiles! These are intended to save difficulty setups and progress so you can have one Hard Mode

profile, a speedrun profile etc. Most settings, such as graphics settings, are still tied to your machine.


----- General/Other: -----

- Custom Levels now save globally in your Documents folder. You can also use the in-game button to find the folder

- Pathfinding now has no limit. Please beware that on huge maps with intentionally bad pathfinding conditions, 

performance will eventually suffer, where it would previously simply say "You can't reach this location".

- Every new build will now popup a changelog window

- Every major update will now show a "Splash page".

- Updated all materials

- Updated many models


----- Fixes/Improvements: -----

- Cinematic Camera mode greatly improved and accessible from Pause menu

- The world now is properly underground and has a roof and map border

- Added some more Easter Eggs... many are visual, some are actually rewarding!

V0.2: The Buildings and Bruises update

The Buildings and Bruises update focused heavily on building implementations and making the caverns challenge the miners health through Erosion and Landslides.

Changelog V0.2.6->0.2.7

Basically bugfixes...

- All resources are now checked for proper goals before being picked up. This means power paths and buildings

  are automatically built if accessible, instead of making certain generalizations about how resources are used.

  > Note, however, that Studs won't be used for Power Paths unless there is a fully upgraded Ore Refinery 

- Drill icons now stay until the task is finished. 

  > Note: You can still queue drilling commands for walls that are not reachable yet

- Reinforcing, Dynamite and drill commands now stack and don't cancel each other.

- Hopefully increased sound buffer so sound won't restart


- Fixed Erosion not destroying unbuilt Power Paths

- Fixed Erosion sometimes being immortal

- Fixed power issue with removing Power Paths

- Fixed Miners not reaching resources that were too close to walls

- Fixed Miners abandoning tasks if told to go somewhere before the task was started

- Fixed miners not getting killed by lava (99.9%, sometimes they walk onto the lava just as it is spawned and it won't get triggered)

- Fixed miners not being able to shovel certain terrain

- Fixed "New Building" popups not initializing correctly


That should be every single bug I have recorded so far!



Changelog V0.2.5->0.2.6

- Added "Play Custom Level" to Main Menu: Play levels that other players have shared with ease! Will improve in upcoming releases

- Added "Lock game speed" setting: If this is off, the game will always start at speed 1

- On Easier Erosion and Landslides now have their cooldown doubled

- On Harder, walls will now give 1-4 Ore instead of always giving 4. (mean value 2.5 ore per wall)

   This is generated by a seed tied to the map data and is consistent between runs.

   Note: Remember that buildings don't give back Ore on Harder! Things can get really tough in some caverns

- Opening caverns now give 10 units (Miner-Seconds) of air per tile in the cavern. Should encourage exploration! (will make it a level parameter later)

- Seams will now "push" resources towards the closest miner so they don't fall down into water/lava on the wrong side as often

- Miners should now avoid erosion by a certain margin. If this causes any issues, let me know.

- Made some minor improvements to Oresome: Added shortcuts and fixed an annoying rubble patch 


- Fixed a bug where miners forgot to put their tasks back in the task queues. 

- Fixed a bug where the Ore Refinery caused miners to go idle

- Fixed a bug where Erosion did not power off Power Paths

- Fixed a bug where Power Paths in discovered caverns did not behave properly

- Fixed the Quick Settings menu sometimes double clicking

- Fixed landslide minimum being 5, not 4

- Fixed landslides spawning on corners under very specific conditions

- Fixed miners sometimes choosing inaccessible drilling approaches. Miners will now always prefer drilling on tiles that are not

   near buildings or undergoing erosion.

- Fixed some tooltips

- Added more random tips



Changelog V0.2.4->0.2.5 (Buildings and Bruises Patch 5):

Performance improvements!


Additions:

- Added Lava to low-resolution textures! It doesn't move like the original yet, but it should boost your performance on slow PCs.

- Walls about to be reinforced but turning into corners are now automatically canceled

- Lowered minimum landslide rate from 6 to 4. More landslides!


Performance:

- Fixed severe lava performance issues for larger lava maps as well as erosion:

--- Removed Lava component that caused unnecessary performance drop and mouse "skidding". 

--- Lava placement is now instant again no matter the map size. The destruction of resources will look slightly worse as a result, but it's worth it.

--- Fixed severe performance issue where lava on larger maps would stutter the game when Erosion progressed. It is now close-to-instant, previously it was nearly unplayable.


Fixes:

- Fixed water not being available in high-resolution

- Fixed (hopefully) resources sometimes spawning in unreachable configurations, especially barriers.

- Fixed Tool Store spawning too high up in the air to be reachable 

- Fixed Potato mode locking the screen if enabled from in-game (Thanks @profego#4051 !)

- Fixed level load failure ruining the currently loaded level

- Fixed an issue where Edge Panning moved in the wrong directions

- Fixed some tooltips

- Fixed Geo Center's teleport-down animation

- Made cursor smaller = less blurry

- Changed the Miner jumpsuits to fantastic HD ones! ( by @ZuTheSkunk#4273 )



Changelog V0.2.3->0.2.4 (Buildings and Bruises Patch 4):

- Added free camera option. Experimental, so if you have issues with it right now, that's life

- Fixed camera escaping the map boundaries

- Fixed camera sometimes getting stuck in map corners

- Missed patch note from last changelog: Reduced game size.


Changelog V0.2.2->0.2.3 (Buildings and Bruises Patch 3):

Changes/Additions:

- Added reachability check for constructing buildings: Previously they would just stop if the next prioritized building was unreachable

- Clarified Buildings tooltips to show what has and has not gotten functionality yet

- Clarified control scheme

- Added missing tooltip to Building Power Priority button

- Discovery objectives now work for walls that are not in a cave, meaning you can e.g. put it on a Crystal Seam in the middle of a dirt path

- Reworked gameplay hotkeys to be dynamic: You can now change them by opening ManicMiners\Config\DefaultInput.ini in notepad and 

   scrolling to the bottom to change Task bubbles "Key=X" etc. They will get proper in-game remapping functionality in the next 

   major build.


Fixes:

- Fixed Erosion Repair and Power Paths playing the teleport-up effect

- Fixed Ore Refinery leaving Ore floating after destruction. It is now dispensed instead.

- Fixed issue where camera did not start at desired height



Changelog V0.2.1->0.2.2

Buildings and Bruises Patch 2 :V0.2.2

Changes/Additions:

- A miner will now try to reinforce a wall if they can't drill it after clicking. You can hold R to force them to reinforce the wall. Not having a Hammer results in no reinforcing.

- Resources should now spawn on ground tiles at map start and after opening a cavern

- Fixing erosion on a Power Path should now properly turn it back into a Power Path

--- Note: Fixing Erosion on a Power-Path-in-progress will still make it a Power Path. Erosion Repair is thus disabled on those tiles.

- Landslides now stop if next to Lava/Water (the Lava effect is cool but it tanks performance. Might add back as a Gameplay setting.)

- Added instructions on how to migrate settings from previous versions

- Improved cave-opening performance (Like 20-50% depending on the cave structure)


Fixes:

- Fixed Erosion not eroding power paths properly

- Fixed Erosion not stopping when not near lava (happened on pre-eroded cavern tiles)

- Fixed Erosion Repair acting like a building in some instances

- Fixed shovel markers being left behind on lava

- Fixed miners sliding like a baws after finishing a Power Path

- Fixed "Drop resource" not affecting all selected miners

- Adjusted Erosion at a distance to not look like an explosion

- Fixed Tool Store having weirdly angled Tool Dispensions



Changelog V0.2->V0.2.1

Fixes:

- Updated some levels

- Miners now look for nearby drill orders before they get new tasks

- Added Biome changer to Level Editor Environment Menu

- Shovel from landslides is now automatically queued when the landslide is not active anymore

- Added "Teleport at Start" to buildings in Level Editor. Works only when directly clicked due to complications.

- Solid Rock can now landslide and be reinforced on "Harder". This only happens when the map maker specifically puts landslides on Solid Rock and will not influence other difficulties. Classic Campaign levels will not have this enabled.

- Made landslide heavier

- Enabled ping sound to the Geological Center when powered up

- Changed the "Discover" objective to be *whatever you want*, without the "Find" prefix. Yes, I'm giving you the power to make "Go kick Rock Monster butt" an objective (when tied to a discover location)


Fixes:

- Defeated Barriers in a honourable battle of life and death

- Fixed Erosion not being visible in opened caverns

- Fixed some erosion tiles not adopting the original texture

- Fixed Ore Refinery not dropping Ore into the bin. Sloppy.

- Fixed Power Station sometimes not being reachable

- Fixed rubble from initial collapsing walls not being shovelable

- Fixed Building Popup appearing when no building was avaialble

- Fixed miners locking up when trying to get a tool in a tight space: They will get tools from the inside of the Tool Store now.

- Fixed Stats menu locking the game

- Fixed foundations sometimes appearing to float

- Fixed Forced Restart after Game Experience change removing the cursor

-Fixed landslides going into water behaving like it's lava
