black rock in the game files

I was looking through the files trying to find the wood textures and I found this interesting object:

I believe this was in the harvestables folder, not the rocks. Maybe its some form of crystal? I don't think the texture seems finished, so maybe its something they are still working on, or was just never added.

Anyone have any theories on what this might be used for? :D

    That's actually an old asset, that disappeared (I think) for a bit.

    Ah ok, do you know if it was used for anything? It seems very out of place with the other items. I would assume its for part of another world

    The texture does seem to have a slightly older look to it (Not the more cel shaded style that is in TUG atm)

    lol yea i remember coming across this when i was working on little Green and thought it was oddly placed in the folders.

    also if you are still looking for the wood texture, the blocks are all in the materials folder.

    Here's a theory: Maybe it's involved in crafting an alchemy table. The stump and rock versions both have that same purple glow.

    Maybe, It would be awesome if this was some kind of rock which emitted energy. Would be cool if it was some kind of obsidian boulder which contained crystals

    not it was not, as at the time crafting wasn't a thing.

    I remember seeing those in the Pine Forest Biome during the first iteration we could walk around in.
    Latter they were moved to underground mountain caverns.

    I think they might be connected to darker magics.

    Purple & black crystal? Fair assumption. This may prove rather interesting.

    Its alright I guess, but it needs to be cleaned up, its style is more hand shaded while TUG is more levels shaded at the moment - also the model seems slightly low poly to me?

    Yeah, the old style where this rock is from was cell shaded, like wind waker. They're going for a more painterly look now. I just wish it was brighter like the old style D:

    The shaders in the game are lacking a bit atm, hopefully when the HLSL API support gets added in we will get some ENB like mods to play around with the way the game looks and feels, and break our computers with insane post process graphics :P

    Unless you're also a programmer, then no. But I understand some of it. I just don't know what ENB is and I am too lazy to look it uuuuuup.

    ENB is an acronym used by a modder who has made graphic enhancement mods for games like Fallout and The Elder Scrolls. I think it means Essential Natural Beauty, but I'm not 100% on that.

    the only acronym I understood there was API, and I don't even know what API stands for.
