Junk Jack X 2.4 is here!

This major patch adds a whole new component to the game: ELECTRONICS! Build complex widgets and contraptions which can interact with the world. In addition to this, the lighting engine has been rewritten and enhanced to support colored lights, which makes the game much more dynamic and fresh looking, with accordingly updated planets which are have even been revamped. The most notable changes can be seen in Terra.
Last but not least weve also added a whole new planet reachable from Seth, named Thetis! Explore this new aquatic world with new monsters, equip pieces, armor, fishes, weapons and new biomes with unique blocks and objects.

Have fun little inventors!

I've also got a couple accessories that don't give actual stat bonuses. Not sure if they give a hidden bonus, are used in a recipe or just do nothing, though. One's a Four Leaf Clover(video game logic says it probably boosts luck/drops) and the other's a Gold Essence Amulet which I have no idea about.
The armor (that I currently have on) affects the percentage of the first 2 things in the first stat column and the first thing in the second stat column.

Is there a wiki for JJX yet? Or is there just one for JJ still?

It also gives other bonuses too if I remember correctly, but I can't remember off the top of my head what those were
Ah, I only equipped the essence amulet while in my base, so I wouldn't have noticed a glow haha. It seems really faint, though.

I used a skeleton necklace for awhile and changed it over to a bauble once I could make them. I like the health boosts. Also got a blast helm from a black slime which I absolutely love.

Hoping to get my hands on some sapphires so I can get the glow effect on something, though. That's sapphire's effect right? Is it brighter than the essence amulet or the same?

Yeah, that's right. I'm sure it's about the same brightness. Although it does seem pretty faint, it does come in useful in those pitch black places and the nice thing about it is that it continues to give off light even as you move, unlike torches

Here's the effects that gems have on armor that I can remember..

Topaz: breathe underwater
Ruby: immune to lava
Emerald: immune to acid
Sapphire: Emits light around the player even while walking.
Diamond: 1% extra physical defense. This armor buff can stack.
Amethyst: I can't remember..

I don't think it has something that compares directly. Enemies do get stronger as you dig down and there are caverns but I don't think there's anything exactly like the underground jungle.

What I don't know is how the new planets will play out. I know from beta footage that they are more dangerous in some ways than good old Terra but I haven't been there myself and don't know how big the difference is.

Well, the first Junk Jack had lots of underground biomes, including jungles, with enemies in it. I just bought JJX, so I don't know yet if there are any underground biomes, but I would be surprised if there aren't any underground dungeons and biomes like in the first JJ. I'm not sure if the enemies are stronger in those biomes.

Oh no that's still there, in fact I think JJ has something called underground jungles. But IMHO it's not the same feeling, they're not as expansive and they're not significantly more difficult in terms of enemies. I tend to find chests there, not fights.

Again, I don't know if that changes on other planets.

Yeh, you're right about that.

I don't know that either, but I'm curious to find that out. I guess I should play it some more to find that out
