More Cheese Please; LBP Cornish Yarg update detailed
This time around it’s the turn of Cornwall favourite Cornish Yarg to denote the more sterile and impersonal sounding “LittleBigPlanet 1.12 game update”.
As with all recent patches, this update will contain a gamut of new options and game tweaks to keep you Sackpeople out there content.
Let’s start with some of those bugs that have been keeping you awake at night. The following “development opportunities” will soon be eradicated into the faint memory of obsoleteness.
- There is a new music player which lets playerâ€™s choose their own music from the XMB to play during create mode and in their Pod (ed: that doesn’t sound like a fix to us!)
- Improved decoration mode makes it easier to customize your Sackboy
As some of you can no doubt testify to, unwanted community objects have a tendency of overcrowd your beautiful and pristine profile. Media Molecule have listened to the community and will be introducing the following the counter the issue.
- Option to delete all (unhearted) community objects and photos
- Option to select whether to automatically collect community prizes and photos
- A number of improvements have been made to make profiles more robust and to recover from certain errors
- We now support Japanese and Korean IME for text chat.
- Emitter prediction has been improved (this should help fast-moving projectiles e.g. in MGS levels)
- The player proximity switch now has a â€˜require allâ€™ option in it
- An option has been added to cycle between various level information when viewing community levels on the earth
- Various LittleBigStore improvements
Check out the post for more details, including community members who just got CROWNED (congratulations to Lionheart and Blufalcon78), some Buzz costume and stickers updates, a couple of shots of LBP at GDC, and a very special new LBP t-shirt (no, not that one).
Finally, did you know that Cornish Yarg is basically a cheese from Cornwall, the U.K. whose unusual name is simply “gray*” spelt backwards? It’s also instantly recognisable from the fact that its rind consists of the nettle leaves wrapped around it during its “maturing” phase.Â Don’t say PS3 Attitude never taught you anything.
*Gray being the equivalent to “grey” for our American readers. Though Cornish Yerg almost sounds like a Klingon cheese.
