Bohemia Interactive's free-to-play sandbox adventure game Ylands has a new update live today, 1.6: Trading Territories. The dev team has upped its exploration game by introducing new, specially handcrafted ylands for players to discover and well, explore, alongside the game's player-created ylands. Future plans include holday-themed ylands and new game modes connected to them.

For now, players can set rules on a yland-to-yland basis, controlling who can build on their new territories. Speaking of building, there's a new building station that lets you fly around its area of effect to make building high structures easier, and a new vendor crafting station will facilitate even more trading.

There's also "a real treat" for "hardcore creators": the beta version of the game's text-scripting API. Hardcore achievement hunters can now view a leaderboard, which offers "daily & weekly breakdowns" in various categories. For the less hardcore, you can now get a rake "for all your terrain smoothing needs." Yes, this was apparently a hotly requested feature.

For more on Update 1.6, check out the post on the Ylands Steam page.

Ylands has made some many promises over the years and delivered on less than 2%
the games explore and adventure was scraped at many times and changed while the company focused on self serving interests over the games promise
