Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7 inch)

I’ve had some reports that the game does not start on this device. So I went and bought it.

And what? It works. A waste of good money :-)

Galaxy Tab 2

I tested it for a good hour, found no problems at all. Despite antiquated hardware it runs pretty smooth, even with 128 visibility distance. If you have this device and the game does not work, I don’t know what to do. Bad luck…

Btw. the image above is not the actual photo of the one I bought, I just got it off the internets. The one I have has Android 4.1.

Also, I would never go near this tablet if I wanted one for myself. Why? It has a proprietary power connector. How stupid is that? So that I have to lug two chargers with me? I will soon lose the charger (I always do), and the tablet will just become an expensive paperweight.

        Minecarts and rails are coming this pe update. Then 0.9.0 infinite worlds, villages, temples, mineshafts and biomes like swamp and roofed forest trees. They’re trying to add jungles without trouble and then tamed wolves.

    What about 1.24? We haven’t heard anything

  23. Posted November 17, 2013 at 22:39 | Permalink | Reply

    I’m sure 1.24 is cooking…. I would think Kaalus is making sure whatever 1.24 has new he wants to be able to present it well:) I think we will here about it in the next few weeks:) on a personal side note, I hope and believe 1.24 won’t take as long as 1.23 did, only because 1.23 had such complex electronics. With all that being said, I can’t wait for 1.24, I think we will get a lot of new items:) (fingers crossed) :D

    villages,villagers,tigers in forest,cheetahs, so you can make mojang feel very very jealous, and I’ve done that before and it works

      The generated structures like graves and pits were sucessful so that mostly means he’s adding villages/ villagers next update. Hopefully.

    You know if you don’t want it, you could just go ahead and send it to me. I could take it off your hands for you.

    I think the new update should be about weapons and tools, like crossbows, shields, poison darts, parachutes, hang gliders, ziplines and small hand grenades,(pretty much tnt that can be thrown.)

    Hey klaaus I love this game but I wish you could add lightning rod or something to store power and some storage thing (not the battery cuz it doesn’t run out of energy) and give a better description of the memory board and truth tile thing (or a video link to show how to use it) thanks and plz take these into consideration

    kaalus, could you please make it impossible to die in creative or at least raise the sky limit? I was working on my second village in my Castle World after being alive for 140 days and I flew up to get a good look at the village and I died so now I have only been alive for 4 days!

      That happened to me too. It usually gets dark in the sky when I go to high but it didn’t.

      • Posted November 20, 2013 at 21:17 | Permalink | Reply

        Yes I agree, you shouldn’t be able to die in creative, in creative we can’t suffocate, take damage from animals fire, starve to death or from falling.

        • Posted November 20, 2013 at 21:20 | Permalink

          We should have outer space with planets and stars. Its probably a bad idea but maybe in a mod.

    It works fine on my cousin’s Galaxy Tab 2 (running 4.2.2). I wonder if the people having trouble have rooted devices?

    Hi Kaalus. I was admiring 1.23 when it came out then i suddenly realized that it would be really fun if there were native americans or villagers. I was building a house and i also wanted to have friends in my city.

    • Posted November 18, 2013 at 21:29 | Permalink | Reply

      He might add them next update if it works. The gravestones and grasstraps are tests for villages or mineshafts.

        IM PART NATIVE AMERICAN! And like a bunck of other things,like my enemies,spanish people. Not sure if Jewish,im German….wut am i talkin bout…….BOATS! I like traaaaains. RHINO! OSTRICH! Can you make those rideable? Im trying to think of recent bugs….distracting my self kind of works….but,nope. BUG! bh,i had that bug where the terrain had triangle holes in each block. I was using default texture. If you want,i may have saved a photo,i might post on blog.

    4 the new update u should add a whole bunch of animals!

    • Posted November 19, 2013 at 22:06 | Permalink | Reply

      1.22 was a big animal update. He adds a new animal each update so I think he might not add alot of animals in one update. There’s like 30 animals in survivalcraft if I’m not mistaken he might be working on villages and mineshafts in 1.24. That will add some adventure.

      Dude don’t forget the reason kaalus added graves and traps it was a test for generated structures because he’s planning to add bigger generated structures like npcs and mineshafts besides don’t forget some kinda npc like a rogue or a prisoner kinda guy could be abandoned on the island like you to see see and there’s thousands of requests on the forums for npcs and mineshafts.

        The generated structures work pretty well. I haven’t had any issues.

    Add Npcs so it would make sense why there traps and graves in the world.

    • Posted November 19, 2013 at 22:09 | Permalink | Reply

      He’s adding those or something similar. The traps and graves are tests for villages or something.

    I noticed somebody on a post called 200 reviews missing? And saw a great idea. Somthing about floating blocks in ocean (drift wood) and help making boats (check) it might be easy,but unrideable.

  41. Posted November 19, 2013 at 05:12 | Permalink | Reply

    I think maps should be added. It could show where you are on the island (the large continent you are abandoned on) or wherever you are at sea. It could have a compass rose on one corner, and it would work like a regular compass except it points north. You could make little marks that you could color and name and they would appear on the map. Then you would just have to move your finger and swipe up/down/left/right, to view all the different areas of the map. Perfect for when searching for specific landscapes or areas that may contain desired resources. (Like lakes,deserts,mountains,Forrest,icy areas,etc.)

      And also rivers. There could be underground river found in caves and above ground rivers that fish swim in and reeds are bordering. But the rivers could have a current that makes it hard to swim in and will cause you to use more stamina at once. Also the rivers would cherry away anything that is dropped into it until it flows into a lake ,underground cave,or the ocean. The rivers could also start out as geysers which can also form waterfalls. I think this is a great idea for the game. In the rivers you could add more resources like smooth rock for stone fences or something.

        I found water in a cave once with a pirahna in it.

        I want rivers and waterfalls too. There should also be be more landforms too, like plateaus, canyons, jungles ( I know that’s not a landform), more biomes, and huge cliffs!

    kaalus there has been brought up on the forum that there should be a feature called sanity/insanity in the near future, for further details on this here’s the link so you can check it out kaalus!

    First i like to thank Kaalus for his great work and all his efforts to make this awesome game. I really admire him.
    I know that he has al lot to do but i have two concerns for 1.24 i’d like to raise up.

    First… is the behavior of fences… If you or any animal in the game combines trying to get up the fence with a jump you will be able to jump over it. Fences gates are better programmed and don’t allow jumping over them no matter what. Because i normally use fences in my worlds to block me from accedently falling down cliffs or buildings i like them to behaive exactly like fences gates do.

    Second… During gameplay i noticed that there is always a certain number of animals spawning, witch is great for the stability of the game but it also effects animals that we enclose in buildings and blocks. After a certain period of time they also respawn. In the gameplay they just vanish. If the horses are sattled you can only collect the saddle again if you accedently happen to stand in front of the animal when this happens.
    My suggestion is that why not introduce a system of animals death. If you feed cows, camels or horses and then pointed at that animal without holding anything in your hand, you don’t hit them. Instead a window opens telling you health, age,… of that animal and for ridable ones giving you a button to unsaddle them. So that the animal can die or respwan peacefully.

    Thanks again for the great work.

    I have this device, you should have put a question out to the community! I as well dislike the proprietary charger on this tablet but am pleased with this devices performance on Cyanogenmod.

    I’m a big fan of Samsung devices and this tablet is a huge disappointment. The short story is that it falls short on almost every relevant front. If interested I blogged about it here:
