Hey everyone,
First of all, sorry for the lack of updates/communication in the past month or so - things have been pretty crazy on this end, and I've struggled quite a lot to find the time to work on Mechanica. Fortunately, things are settling down now and I'll be able to get back into a frequent update cycle. Thanks so much for your patience and apologies again.

This is the second part of the defense update - as the name suggests, three more defensive objects have been added. In addition to this, following a lot of personal playtesting, I've made a lot of small adjustments that I believe will improve Mechanica's gameplay experience. See below for specifics.


  • Added primitive suspension trap.
  • Added advanced suspension trap
  • Added spinning laser trap

Bug fixes

  • Fixed a bug that caused inventory items to temporarily disappear.
  • Fixed the furnace being unable to detect ores.
  • Fixed various connection issues.
  • Fixed a bug that caused interactable objects to stay outlined when they shouldn't be.
  • Fixed hover detection issues associated with the programming tool.
  • Fixed a bug in the 'Joe' robot loading process.
  • Fixed inventory storage units failing to load correctly,
  • Fixed a loading issue with the furnace.
  • Fixed beds not correctly acting as a spawn point.
  • Fixed ores not regenerating when using a bed to skip the night.
  • Fixed some audio glitches.
  • Fixed 'Joe' robots not returning to their factory after killing the player.
  • Fixed being able to use the 'enter' key to craft items whilst typing in the chat window.


  • Reduced material cost of various objects.
  • Reduced vitals drain rate (25% slower now).
  • Made minor adjustments to the robot spawning algorithm.
  • Reduced volume of programming menu noises.
  • Optimized code to reduce unnecessary network traffic.
  • Objects links can now be completed by just hovering over the object itself.
  • Reduced power requirement of spinning blade trap (50 -> 20).
  • Increased range of the baseball bats(2 -> 2.25m)
  • Increased average tree regrow time.
  • Increased campfire lifetime (300->480s).
  • Added a small radius light to the flashlight which illuminates the immediately surrounding area.
  • Increased flashlight angle (75->110 degrees).
  • Increased the amount of health provided by the health shot (35->50).
  • Picked-up objects now prioritize moving to the hotbar rather than the inventory. Please note this only applies to 'built' objects (those picked up by holding the right mouse button).
  • Inceased furnace smelt time (3.5->4.5s).
  • Relocated the furnaces 'on/off' buttons.
  • Increased default ore regeneration per day rate (5->10%)
  • Adjusted the spawning schedule of F.R.A.N.K so that he first appears a bit later.
  • Changed the description of glass and sand.
  • Increased the collision tolerance of the vacuum.
  • Reduced volume of 'Joe' robots.
  • Changed the message displayed by the furnace.
  • If a powerline can't be created, a reason for this is now displayed.

Thanks for reading, have a great day!
