HH had a terrific idea for making the loading screen more useful.
We want to add hints that can tell people about features of the game or how to do stuff.
A hint should be short and to the point, just 1 sentence. We already wrote all the code and it is working, but we need the actual hints.
The game will pick a random hint every time it loads and display it in the loading screen.
So I invite you guys to reply with what hint you think would be good for this screen.
you once told me, that not evryone knew how to split the stack you're holding, maybe add this?

Hint: Sea grass contains trapped air. You can swim into it to replenish your breath when in deep water.

attacking with most swords is faster than attacking with your hand.
tnt explodes 7 seconds after you place it.
you can fall up to about 10 blocks without getting hurt.
flying consumes mana.
most things for transportation requir coal ore.
ted is the most recommended npc for starting a quest.
some things you can get a better deal on if you trade with the shadow hunter. others, your better off making yourself.
certain stuff go in your left hand. others go in your right hand.
sheilds are not garentee to block all attacks.
be sure you are well equipped with supplies and weapons when fighting mobs.
thats all i can think of right now.
"You can craft pickaxes to equip and increase your dig speed."
"You can level up and gain skill points that allow you to increase many different stats."
Or you could break this hint into two separte ones like this:
"You can level up by either building, mining, or fighting dangerous monsters."
"Each time you level up, you gain skill points which can be used to increase many things such as health and mining speed"
