Due to how the Alpha was handled, the following is a list showing the ORDER of things added to the game, with the top most item being first, and the last item being most recent. This is a general list I kept on the side, as we did not track an actual changelog until release, due to new items being added every hour and not in 'version updates'. Also note that not all items are listed. This is simply to show the general flow of additions for those who are interested in such 'history'.


1.0 was the release version of the game.
