Update #50 - 06/14/17
AI System
Kythera now runs all AI on top of our optimized "animal" system. There will likely be some AI issues related to moving to the animal system that we will fix in future updates

Traps
Several types of traps have now been added to the game
All traps will be removed on a server restart (they are not base building items and can be placed anywhere)
Most traps are crafted, but some can also be found in the world
Some traps are destroyed when triggered
Some traps are disabled when triggered and need to be reset
To reset some traps requires an item in your inventory - flare trap, for example
Traps can be packed up and moved
Traps can be shot to damage, destroy, and trigger them
Some traps need a guide to be made

Servers
Adjusted default time so daytime lasts 6 hours (real time) and nights are only 1.5 hours. This change gives most players the experience to play during daylight hours in game. Server renters can still override the default times

World Action System
Players can now interact with many things in the world (more will be added in future updates). Some examples:
Drink from rivers (this will make you sick in a future update)

Tearing rags from some cloth items
Searching vending machines for soda
And a few more...
