The 'toggle fog'... toggles fog. It changes the draw distance.
All it seems to do is redraw the screen for me.
And yeah, I agree that it could use a tutorial, but I don't think the lack of one is that onerous.
if you combine two sticks and three planks you get a wooden pickaxe. Or an axe, depending on how you arrange the planks. Just like the pilgrims used to do!
Seriously, at the very, very
least, it needs to tell you things like: You place blocks on the surface of other blocks, and they will stick to any surface. All that shit you're making, you can use it by right-clicking on it. (THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT KEYS AND IT IS NOT MENTIONED ANYWHERE.) You need to build a crafting table before you can make pretty much everything. If you don't build a torch you are going to be screwed - oh, and the lighting engine can't accommodate dynamic lighting, so don't build one torch, build HUNDREDS of them. Hold the button down to harvest things; every time you release it the material will repair itself, so clicking quickly, despite it LOOKING like you are moving faster, actually won't do anything. Sometimes you will harvest a block and it will look like it's there but then you will fall through it anyways. That's fucking life, get used to it.
There's so much basic, fundamental information that you can't get except through cheating. Not to mention it running out of memory every ten minutes like freaking clockwork, despite only using one-third the RAM I've allocated to Java. WHAT IS IT DOING.
