"It is not terrain",
"raegenhere wrote:what confuses me... It's either quite big or its not made of blocks. It's not terrain, jens said that. He also said items and mobs will be made out of blocks." "That is actually a very good observation."
Via twitter: @JensBlomquist: The CSG module I'm working on is called Ninja. It may or may not be important to know that. @JensBlomquist: "slice like a ninja cut like a razor blade" @JensBlomquist: Information about mobs, player avatar, weapons and combat will be revealed this weekend."
