Impressions so far:

While this game may seem like a great minecraft clone it is missing some very basic block ability that I believe hurts the game amd it's creativity, especially considering it is meant just to build. These things include
All blocks break at the same speed (leaves and stone will take the same amount of time to break)
You cannot place over items such as mushrooms (you must first remove the mushroom to place any block in its place instead of being able to instantly overwrite it)
Items such as tiles cannot be placed on the top "edge" of another block, only the lower section
Multiple doors cannot be placed to open separate ways creating a large entrance.
Movement is slow, but water movement is even worse, literally feeling like a crawl. I personally can handle the regular movement but water movement is absurd.
Moving slightly sometimes cancels breaking a block which already is slow.
If you place a block in the wrong spot (or any block that is) it is around 4-5 seconds to remove it, way to long

However there are some good aspects to the game:
Community is there, though seemingly it's a younger crowd and not a huge surprise with this type of Game
Block placement works well with a good range
Coordinates make it easy to travel and know where you've been working
Teleport is very nice
Chat seems alright, though I've not used it but once.
Zoned areas helps slow the spam from other players

Pretty much if you like building on a casual level this game could be for you. However, if you're one of those minecraft or survival craft players that believe in sophisticated structures I fear you would be agitated with the block breaking time, tile placement, door placement and maybe some other minor things that could be fixed by the dev.

Thank you developers for this amazing game! I have downloaded the game yesterday with my friend. We have spent cool friday night playing Planet of Cubes in survival. We have already found iron, crafted our first tools, killed chickens and pigs, eat food. We like to kill monsters together with my friend!

Now we are going to build our home and grow some plants. Can you please tell me how can we find carrot? And how to grow plants in general?

Great to hear this. We are so happy that you and your friend like our game!

To get some carrot you need to kill many zombies and spiders.

To grow plants start with gathering seeds, craft a hoe in the workbench, then find a place to grow plants. Till dirt with hoe, put seeds on the tilled dirt. Wait when your plants became fully grown.

To speed up the growing process, place lights (torches, glowstone) arround your planted seeds and put water block to make your farm hydrated.

We have a good tutorials, where you can watch how to grow plant on our youtube channel, please check it here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQk...confirmation=1

If you have more questions, please write them here, i will try to help you
