After a long wait, update 0.64 is out for Boss Golf!
For this update, you now have some brand new tools for making water in your golf resort!
In the water panel, you are able to either add bodies of water, or rivers. (Waterfalls will come later).
Bodies of Water
This is just a fancy way of saying lakes, ponds, whathave you. Simply dig up an area with the height tools, select the water tool, and then click on any point you wish to create your pond. It will automatically detect the area to be filled, and preview what the pond will look like.
After it’s done, you can adjust the height to suit what you need, or just straight up delete it!
Rivers work similar to the path tool. You simply click and drag, and a river will be created. Currently, you are also able to choose the width of the stream you are making!
To delete it, simply select the bulldozer, and erase the river whole.
As this water tool is still a work in progress, the AI isn’t reacting perfectly to it yet. It’ll try to walk over it, and may get stuck if the trench is too deep. You can always use the pick up tool to grab a problematic AI, and move them out of the way. For 0.65, AI will receive a nice overhaul to make ti more reactive!
Some other minor fixes included in this build:
- AI now limited to 8 strokes in a hole. If it goes over it, it’ll move on to the next thing.
- Removed the Edit hole button from the hole panel
- Balls falling into water will be treated as out of bounds; stroke penalty and placed at the appropriate location
That’s it for now, folks!
As mentioned, 0.65 will be about AI and improving their systems. Afterwards, it’ll be 0.7 with the tools for creating new buildings for the resort! So stay tuned for more, and don’t forget to wishlist Boss Golf!
