    Well, people should stop begging you for a changelog now.
    Just a little bit longer until they get the actual update they want.
    EDIT: Yay, first again! I can taste the adrenaline.

    I hope this placates folks for a bit - and serves as a good "reflection point" for some. ;)

    This is absolutely incredible news, Rudi. I thought that the console community was about to go insane.

    Now THAT is the sort of optimism that has sorely been missing for a touch here. [​IMG]

    Thank you for posting the change log; I sincerely appreciate the work that goes into stuff like this and I know how obnoxious a lot of people have been being on the forums. Whenever 1.2 reaches me, I will be overjoyed. I hope this can get people to calm down a bit and realize that yes, this update is rapidly approaching, and thus put an end to all the wild-eyed conspiracy theories that have been floating around.

    Why is this thread still not front-paged?

    Teachable moments. :)

    Ask some of the MFT participants about what they said about Red in 2012...and how foolish it looks now.

    Our devs are rock solid people - I'm hoping folks come to understand this.

    Anyway, enough off topic from me...for those unaware of what 1.2 had initially (and/or the "additional" inclusions beyond 1.2 here), what is exciting you most? :)

    Now all the early console port buyers who thought they would be getting more content than the PC version will finally have their eternal butthurt put to an end.
    Until the Lunar Update and 1.3 come out, that is.

    I'm excited for all the new mushroom stuff. I did my best to stay out of the loop vis-a-vis all the new stuff, though I did cave and read some beforehand. From this list, learning that I can make furniture out of glowing mushrooms is an exciting prospect! When I first happened upon a glowing mushroom biome underground, it was breathtaking. It really felt alien and unique, so knowing now that I can bring all that to the surface and make a real house out of it seems really cool! Are there mushroom weapons?

    The "I never doubted Rudi in the slightest! I knew he wouldn't have let us down!" comments are coming lol
    Hopefully the rest of the wait will not turn the console community into a headless chicken
