its just easier to update/edit existing posts on cubelands forums
all additional updates will be made to my forum thread ONLY so please go to the link above for the latest updates
obviously I have not added all the achievements that I have made, the screenshot is meant to be used as a concept so I wouldnt expect the final product to look exactly like this, this is more of just a template to inspire changes to the achievement system
here is a screenshot demonstrating my concept, you see achievements are broken up in groups, achievements that you have yet to collect would be blackened out and say "not complete", in the top right hand corner you would have a rank based on your achievement points, achievement points would be earned by completing achievements, each achievement would be vauled on a scale from 1 to 5 depending of difficulty, and lastly it would display how many achievements you have obtained over how many achievements exist
also please note that the final "dying" achievement is called zombie and shows 10 deaths when in the discription it is for 1000 deaths, this should be edited and fixed
also since the added achievements would probably appear after the achievements you have already completed for example getting the achievement for 150 hours when you already have the achievement for 250 hours, I suggest we have an achievement page linked in our profile, it can replace the list of achievements that are displayed across the page and instead just be a link that directs you to an organized page of achievements grouped together by type, the ones you have completed will appear as normal and the ones you have not completed will be blackened out but will still show a place value for it and will be displayed once completed, I will make a screenshot shortly demonstrating this concept
my idea is to eventually get the game up to 100 total achievements then have each achievement be worth a certain amount of points based on difficulty or time needed to complete them so cubelands can have an achievement based highscore table, there are currently 34 achievements ingame unless more exist without my knowledge and i have created around 35 new achievements, once there is a combined total of 100 achievements I will associate a numerical value for each corresponding to difficulty on a scale that will go from 1 to 5, 1 being easy 5 being hard, that will total up to a maximum amount of points obtainable, the highscores will list players from highest achievement points to lowest and in the event of a tie it will list the players in chronological order so that whoever obtained the most amount of points first will be listed first
for example say that the maximum amount of achievement points is 350, and 5 players have completed all achievements, it would then list them in chronological order starting with whoever completed them at the earliest date and so on, in the possible occasion that two players completed the same amount of achievements on the same date it would then list them in hours played so whoever has played longer will be listed first

XD nice use my name God Creator :D
as said above 2 of these achievements may already exist, they are hosting 500 games and 500 hour milestone, I have done alot of research and looked over many accounts and to my knowledge no one has yet played 500 hours nor has hosted 500 games, the top 5 accounts listed as most played are either haxed/cheat accounts or do not have a total of 500 hours played so it is yet to be confirmed if either of those achievements currently exist
also to further explain my time milestones achievements, there is a milestone for 250 hours played which is why it is not listed above (for players who did not already know this) and it is speculated that 250 hours is the highest time milestone currently available, to me it is a large and almost overwhelming leap from 100 hours to 250 hours, I thought it would only be fair to make milestones at intervals of 50 hours so that players do not get discouraged when they have worked along time without recieving any new achievements
my latest addition to list of new achievements, note that 2 of the below achievements may already exist and if so I apologize, this will be further explained at the bottom

you have to remember that the majority of the population is going to be a younger audience, advent video gamers and achievement hunters taking a break from their favorite respective consoles are going to want some kind of endgame type goal or advancement structure to measure their progress against others, this creates competition and increased intrest in the game, many gamers seeking admiration from their peers may purchase the game as to have an advantage over those who have not, (bragging rights) thus increasing capital, basic marketing stragedy brought to you by Zyonmkxq =]
