The Modern World

Welcome to the new and updated version of Build A World (0.597)

All registered users can play for free for 1 month starting today

We have been busy adding many new features, and planning new stuff. There have been many suggestions mailed to us, regarding blocks, gameplay, technolgies etc. Thank you! Over time we will attempt to include most of the things in the game.

What's new?

User Rights on Servers: New users who enter a server are automatically a guest, and can not interact with the world. The Server Owner or Admin can change a User from Guest to Normal User by using the TAB-key. Click here for an example movie.

Functional blocks and Signal Lines: can be used with switches, pressure plates, buttons, lights, doors etc.). Use F2 to enable/disable editing of Signal Lines. Click here for an example movie.

Many new blocks and constructions: Uranium ore added to the world, various kinds of smoke emitters and chimneys added for visual effects, power cut off terminal block for the main powersystem, doors (normal, sliding, elevator and shutter) and rubble when blocks hits the ground at high speed.

Player Ranking and Achivement system: Press K to see your current ranking and the entire list of tasks. Ranking ONLY increases in Survival Mode!

Model functions: more modelling functions added. To use 'Take Construction', point at the construction and hit 'Delete' key.

Spawnpoints list: Spawnpoint teleport. Press O to see the overview of spawnpoints (not for Survival).

Big City: Many new buildings for the autogenerated big city. The Nuclear powerplant now powers the entire city via a network of powerlines and transformers. Click here for a walk around at the Nuclear Powerplant. You can also build a Nuclear Reactor yourself, Click here for a demonstration movie, or even a Tactical Nuke.

Full speed gravity (v2.0): gravity has been updated to make blocks fall smoohtly and turn blocks into rubble when they hit ground at high speed. Click here for an example movie.

Many bugfixes: Now also works on Windows 8 64bit with Intel HD GPU.

Always remember F1 for help.

What is the road ahead?

We are working on several cool things at the moment. Pumpable and removeable water, more areas for Big World Mode, more functional blocks to be used with signal lines, new world zones and the online Model Library.

Later we want you to be able to build a car and drive it in the world, or make a boat, a plane, spacerocket etc. We are also adding PvP mode and any model or map can be used in PvP mode.

A number of weapons and animals.

An educational part of the game is also in the works, and the aim is to create a number of lessons to be used in schools. The educational part of Build A World will be free.

When is the next update?

Next update will be out at end of March.
