v0.20.22 - More trinket slots, smart mining, new trinkets and many changes

Published by: Fair

To get this update, you have to opt in inside your library: Necesse -> Properties -> Betas -> Select 0.20.x in dropdown. It's recommended to back up your saves when playing on experimental version. Especially when loading a save using a newer version. You can do so in game on the load menu. A quick reminder that there's an official Discord server, where you can post suggestions, bugs, or just talk with other players and the developer. Here's the invite link: https://discord.gg/FAFgrKD This update adds the ability to get more trinket slots and changes demon heart to give 200 max HP. Both of these changes affect balance quite a bit, so there will probably be additional balance changes in next weeks update. A bunch of new trinkets and some upgrades has also been added. There's also the addition of smart mining, a mode that will mine in the direction of your mouse and can be toggled on and off. You can see an example of this in the GIF below. To get the new items found in deep snow cave chests, you will have to find a new cave to explore. Other than that there's a bunch of other changes and fixes. See the full changelog below.
