2017 Quarterly Update 1 tell me more

Hi there

Have just watched Stonehearth Dev Stream 259: 2017 Quarterly Update 1!

Thank you for an update on what the future will bring.

As a coder I would love to have heard more about what you think is missing in the engine department.
Your briefly comment that in order to get snow bio to work there is some base functionality that needs work, what are they.

What is happening with the plans for water, lava, ice(glacier), Irrigation.

In the end you talk about making the world more soft. Love it. I think that rotating and scaling the organic elements in the game randomly ever so slightly(±5%/± 5°) would break some of the every thing is clones feel.

Thanks Peter
