Sound Delay

I have a new video for you:

http://youtu.be/tfDX8N7_m48

I am working on a new weapon and it’s rather powerful. Unfortunately, it does not sound very well with the audio engine in 1.24, so I had to upgrade it a little and introduce proper sound delay system. The only thing that was delayed with distance in 1.24 was thunders. In 1.25 everything gets this treatment, should add a bit to the realism.

The speed of sound in the world of Survivalcraft is quite a bit lower than in the real world, to make the effect more pronounced with the small distances we have in the game.

I am sure many of you will be able to guess what the new weapon is :-)

        Nope, why would you need a sound delay for an object in your hand? And why add a gun at the same time as the crossbow?

        • Posted January 20, 2014 at 23:30 | Permalink

          Hi, well why add a crossbow when he just added a bow and arrow…and a sound delay applies to other things going on around you.. If multiplayer is added one day then the sound delay would be needed for that I.e. Other players weapons/effects :) or which I had suggested before, maybe the new weapon can be triggered so when your not close to it but its in visual range, we can still hear it.

          Because the bow is nice, but not great on power untill you get dimond arrows, the crossbow will be stronger but you’ll need to take more time to reload. As for the “triggered at a distance”, it probobly won’t be a gun, maybe a connon.

    Kaalus you have to do something about the lions! It’s impossible to play at cruel mode! At the first day i dig a hole in the ground but now i cant return because there are many lions waiting for me outside! And it’s not only one, it’s 3! 3 lions waiting me outside at my second day in the cruel mode!
    You should increase the day time so i could make a better shelter… At day i spend my time collecting pumpkins, oak wood, birch wood and searching for a nice place to build my house, when the night come i just dig a hole in the ground, but i cant leave anymore cause lions is killing all the time…
    I don’t want a easy game but the lions are annoying me ‘-’, even at snow biom they are appearing.
    Sorry for the bad english

      Agreed. Kaalus lions spawn way too often. I just had to fight off 5.

        I built a house and now there is a lion on top of it on the roof. how it got there, I don’t know. There is no possible way it could have gotten up there, unless it climbed a tree and jumped onto the roof, but that is very unlikely.

      Wolf spawns are also to common. Once I was building my house in survival, I walked inside to get more supplies, I went back outside and there were about 30 wolves waiting for me. Ouch.

      You guys have to actually hit them,lions are weak,they run after only a few hits,get good at the game before asking him to change it. Wolves won’t attack during the day unless you touch them. He’s adding a new weapon,what if he’s making the game harder first

        Dude i play this game since 1.19! And play at Cruel with bare hands and 6 lions running after you (and they’re faster than you and they attack you at day too) it’s not easy…
        I have no problems with the wolves but the lions spawn to often and attack at day too

        • Posted January 20, 2014 at 18:16 | Permalink

          I never have problems with lions,just be aware of your surroundings, lions aren’t that bad,just craft a machete

        • Posted January 20, 2014 at 18:43 | Permalink

          Let me explain…
          You’ve created a new world at cruel, you take wood and birch wood, pumpkins and some meat. Now the night is coming and you didn’t build a shelter, so you dig a hole in the ground and sleep, when you wake up u try to leave the hole but there are 4 lions outside… You can’t run and fight.
          Now im sleeping at trees, lions can’t go there :-)
          Lions are weak but at the first day its difficult to fight with them.

          @ Nicolas Rafael

          Hi, thee method I use for the first night or two is to gather leaves from trees to build a quick temporary shelter. It’s faster to gather then wood and you can procure more. Another way I survive the first couple Of nights is to build upward… Digging a hole in the ground only paints yourself in a corner if you will. So build upward … Use the leaf blocks to build up into a tree like you have said, that works great also :)

        • Posted January 21, 2014 at 00:18 | Permalink

          Here’s an idea,when you are in the hole punch them till they run,my gosh guys this is simple,if you can’t take it you are too bad to play cruel,judging by what you said about shelter,you need to change a bit of your strategies

        • Posted January 21, 2014 at 02:39 | Permalink

          I haven’t said anything about shelters, but they attack me while i’m trying to build in the perfect spot, they always attack, so I can’t be out in the open trying to find wood. My strategy is find a good spot, find food, find wood, make weapons and build a house in the evening. Wake up, but there are wolves and lions all around, and Lions prevent me from doing anything, especially with the low stamina. Lions are stubborn and waste my time, you can’t really do anything to defend yourself, because they attack in large groups.

      Never heard of lions spawning in a snow biome, but i don’t doubt you, wolves spawn way to often too, on one of my worlds I decided I needed to take care of the 40 wolves that spawned overnight so what I did was get some bacon, a large gunpowder keg, and of course matches, so what you do is place the keg, throw down the meat, wait for them to come, light the keg and run

        Haha nice… Just hang in there guys… Kaalus is aware of the animals…he is giving use two more weapons to deal with them and maybe he will tweak it so there are less of them… Hang in there fellow survivalists :)

    • Posted January 21, 2014 at 14:11 | Permalink | Reply

      To the OP: A lot of people have suggested that building up is a better idea than digging down, I want to confirm this. A simple three block tall tower accessible by a trap-door in the roof is by far the best answer to how to handle the mobs first thing in the morning.

      To Kaalus: New weapons are nice, but honestly I think you just need to make the hostile mobs drop limited amounts of bacon. My character doesn’t turn his nose up at raw seagull; he’s certainly not going to let a wolf carcass go to waste, and that would go a long way toward alleviating the difficulty of the early stages of the game.

      I have to kill them anyway, I might as well get something out of it.

      On a totally unrelated note; when you’re considering things to add pistons (both of the push-only and the push-pull variety) would open a huge number of potential projects. Just putting that out there.

        I think it’s going to be a exploding warhead if you will.. But I don’t think it’s going to be a explosive bolt because he says it a new weapon. With that being said, whatever it is, it’s going to make a sound from a distance from yourself hence the sound delay feature which I like. So obviously it works for thunder and explosives… Animals perhaps? I hope not because it would stink to be mauled by a animal that you couldn’t hear right away… Just a thought but I don’t think it will pertain to animals.

      Guns make insanely loud noises. Cannons are even louder and some explode. Im going with cannon or explosive gun ammo. Grenades are a little short range.

    • Posted January 19, 2014 at 05:40 | Permalink | Reply

      I know guns and cannons are extremely loud but to opperate both you have to either be carrying it or right next to it to operate leaving almost no time for sound delay while with explosive ammo your not getting a new weapon just different ammo, and a grenade has been requested before, plus a grenade and a brick weigh about the same and you’ve seen how far he can throw a brick

    I agree with Joey i dont think its really a gun because you hold the gun in your hand and there really is’nt that much distance for the sound to reach your ears, the guns right in front of you so there isnt really much delay.

      Yea that would be a awesome block…. But I don’t think it will ever happen. Block building games tend to stick to a standard mechanic. I.e. A wooden slab for example has that top half part that still counts for a block being there and makes anything else sitting on top of ot levitate on top of it. I wish a half block was just a half block or things like slabs are able to be placed vertically against a wall for awesome builds. But it won’t ever happen. It would take a massive rehaul of the game code for changes like that.

    I don’t believe it’s a gun because he is using sound delay on it (unless he’s adding multiplayer soon so other players can hear the sound delay) and I don’t believe it’s a firework… Because he said it’s a new weapon, (unless he considers a firework as a weapon….and not ammo I.e. Explosive bolt…. A cannon would use sound delay if you didn’t wield it, just have it mounted. It could be Wired to a motion sensor, pressure plate etc. maybe we would get a boom sound from the actual shot and a boom sound from the shot hitting something far.

    …. Maybe my idea for a wired/mounted weapon system is being extrapolated from ;)

    To be honest the mining speed needs to be a lot faster I hate the mining mechanics as it is now. It needs to change. It’s to slow for me I get bored of slow mining. I play minecraft more often bc it has much smoother and faster block breaking abilities.

  35. Posted January 20, 2014 at 02:50 | Permalink | Reply

    I honestly find Minecraft too easy and boring, The animals are obviously clueless. You hit one and it run towards you, so you can hit it again. Blocks are mined and broken way too quickly.

    Too many rare materials spawn. Weapons last way too long. Mobs can’t even walk around a block. The player never gets tired and runs faster than everything in the game. You don’t really need food for like a week. Too many hearts. Regeneration too fast. Boats too fast.Bow and arrows reload too fast and charge too quickly. Furnace gives off too much light, fire is unrealistic, gold isn’t reasonable armor, inventory too big, water isn’t transparent enough, Pistons, should be able to extend further, default texture is horrible,Ghast are too stiff.

    Iron Golems are not very useful, to much lagging, tons of glitches, Arrows over powered, updates are extremely slow, even when more people are working on it, terrain generation is mostly hills, flying is too difficult, genders reproduce with the same gender, how does a zombie kill a spider?, glass is filled with lines, how am I suppose to look out of it, TNT is all around bad, the way redstone is made is getting in the way of great creations, why can’t they go up walls, why do they weaken of length. Not enough animals. Last all mobs are too slow. Mods shouldn’t count, because they are not made by Mojang. I’m not really seeing how this game is so popular. And why Survivalcraft isn’t more popular. Survivalcraft has accomplished what Minecraft hasn’t. I’m not seeing how a lot of people say it is just a rip-off. Minecraft got it’s idea from Infiminer. So, why can’t other games get their ideas from Minecraft. Just expressing how I feel about survivalcraft right now.

        Flying is not difficult….

        • Posted January 20, 2014 at 12:39 | Permalink

          I find it hard, because you have to press space bar and hold up to go higher and to go lower you have to stop flying

        • Posted January 20, 2014 at 15:48 | Permalink

          You have to stop flying when you want to go down? I use L sift to go down and to stop flying i just double press spacebar.

          And it wasn’t meant to be realistic(Like SC was).

          I like them both but i prefer MCPC because its bigger.

        • Posted January 20, 2014 at 20:06 | Permalink

          That is what I meant. MC isn’t really bigger at all. The Nether is okay. The End looks like lazy work and dosen’t have infinite land. Creepers are suicidal animals, which annoys me. I think Mojang is a little lazy. The updates don’t add enough and are not always huge. They don’t actually improve on mobs, they just keep piling up more, but they are never really amazing. Terrain genreation is usually boring. Trees take to long to grow. Animals run of of cliffs. Explain to me exactly how MCPC is bigger, because Survivalcraft does bigger things than Minecraft, but everyone says it bigger and better, but it’s really not. The only thing making it better is mods and youtube.

      Actually in sc, I wonder that after hitting and animal with diamond arrows like, I don’t know 20 times?! They are still not dead, 20 arrows, dead yet? No! The arrows in sc really need to be buffed, like possibility of killing a cow in one arrow buff, like fully charged headshot in tf2 with sniper buff, like one shot kill in red orchestra buff, I don’t even know!

        You clearly missed with the arrows 95% of the time if it didn’t die with the first 20 diamond arrows… -__-

        Kaalus could work on headshots EVEN THOUGH WE CAN ALREADY KILL ANIMALS WITHOUT THEM, or he could focus on adding more entites n stuff. Personally, would like more food kaalus. I mean what u have is fine, but I think u should add berries and bushes and corn and growable pumpkins and apples/orages/lemons. Yknow, more stuff to make ppl wanna go out and scavenge. For weapons, I still really want hunting rifle(it would be super hard to make though).

        Ok my guess is that Kaalus is making throwable kegs of gunpowder. This would be great for lots of things! Clearing land, mining, taking out groups of aimals, redneck fishing(lol)! My second guess would be….yeah, probably a cannon that fires kegs of gunpowder. I would rather have th first one though :)

        Dreadscape is coming along nicely again :D I’m adding more items and figuring out how to extend the size of the map!

        • Posted January 20, 2014 at 19:32 | Permalink

          It is known as an over-exaggeration, may main point was that the arrows needed to be buffed, if 1-2 hits can’t kill an animal, it starts to get pretty unrealistic, maybe kaalus could add critical hits (crits) like suggested as a headshot, but I am really sick of being chased for five mins with a machete out of reach while I try to draw back my bow. ):

        • Posted January 21, 2014 at 04:40 | Permalink

          I had thought of that, throwing lit powder kegs.. Perhaps dragging a match over a powder keg, lighting it and then you throw it from your hot bar or something… But Kaalus says it’s a new weapon.. So I’m iffy with that idea

        Btw Minecraft is bigger than SC, End wasn’t meant to be infinite, by the way.

        But im not a SC hater nor MCPC hater.

        MCPC has: better n more horses, tamable dogs, breeding, multiplayer, ocelots>cats, slime block(coming soon), redstone, lapis lasuli, easter eggs(such as Dinnerbone and Grimm), mesa, jungle, and so on………………………………………………………………………………………………….

          Yeah it has like 20 more biomes like jungle, ice spikes, mesa, swamps,
          (which would go great with survivalcraft because of tropical animals) praries, and more. I do like the idea of tamed wolves, we need it in survivalcraft to help us hunt.

      Survivalcraft and Minecraft are both awesome games. Survivalcraft has more realism and awesome survival and Minecraft has more amazing blocks and multiplayer which makes building very easy and stylish. Therefore realize most of the adventure maps we download from survivalcraft are small and last 5 minutes to finish. Minecraft adventure maps last for days of quests, looting, and adventure. They are equal to me (minecraft pc being slightly better) We need better sc maps in survivalcraft instead of the 5 minute, small map, junk some people put in (no offense) Anyway pistons could be awesome for interactions like parkour, shooting challenges, and a dangerous temple that closes its wall in slowly to kill the player if he doesn’t find a way out. Skins are a good idea since girls play and they dont wanna play with a guy with a beard. To finish it, they are both equal and this is a survivalcraft site so its probably rude to talk about other block games not relative to this. :)

    For those of us that like finding a secluded island and then making a settlement there you know what I’m talking about, we NEED fishing rods, boats with furnaces and faster boats would be nice, or at least oars to help move faster, because now boats are EXTREMELY slow, im not saying boats should be like minecraft pc boats because its like riding a speed boat

    • Posted January 20, 2014 at 04:32 | Permalink | Reply

      I agree with a fishing rod…. Some days I just want to relax at a secured village I have built, not worry about hunting, predators and mining (work) and just go fishing… Just relax, watch the sun go down and fish :)

      Please add fishing rods in 1.25 Mr. Kaalus :) we have wooden sticks for a rod… And string now for a fishing line :) Besides… 1.25 is sounding like Man v.s. Animal update :p

      • Posted January 20, 2014 at 04:41 | Permalink | Reply

        Yeah we can even create a metal rod so we can cast further and last longer. And they rods can catch different things like wooden catches menos and diamond catches sharks.

        I am very much with you bro, that would be nice to relax in sc, not building a castle, not farming, not taming horses, not working on electrics, just setting up a nice place with a beach chair and an extended fishing rod, and then I would be very happy :)

        (Please don’t get offended)
        SurvivalCraft would run out of fish!!
        We should have small fish which you can’t see but can be caught so fishing is possible!

      We should have the ability to sleep wherever we want just as long as we are relatively close to a fire, and fire should repel animals, I agree with grenades or something of the sort

        Something like a throws le gunpowder keg would keep it within the game’s feel too! Like, you would light it in your hand (the same way you load an arrow into the bow,) then there would be 5-10 seconds of fuse, then kabluee! If your not fast enough, then you’re in for some trouble >:)

    Hi guys, I was thinking today about the crossbow’s user interface… I know many of you don’t like the idea of how it’s cocked and loaded through the user interface… And I believe people will possibly complain on how slow or tedious arming the crossbow will be… So I was thinking (maybe Kaalus will read this) I believe a “smoother” way to cock and load the crossbow and would be a bit more realistic.

    Once you have the crossbow in your hand (empty/no bolt) you simply point the crossbow down, towards your feet, when you do this a icon will appear, the sneak button now becomes the crossbows cocking button, the icon will show a foot/boot in a crossbows stirrup (irl most powerful crossbows use a stirrup, a metal like hoop on the front of the crossbow to place your foot into to hold the crossbow down so you can pull the string up to cock it) once your pointing down and the icon appears showing you can cock it, you simply keep holding down on the icon button, it will show you pulling the string up towards your waist if you will, once cocked then you can simply drag a bolt over the crossbow to load it like the bow and arrow.

    I’m sorry if this was really long in description…but it’s a really simple concept…. I just wanted to be detailed in my explanation. I believe this would best a great if not best way to load the crossbow. :)

    I believe most people will not be content with the way the crossbow is cocked and loaded as it stands now. This is my suggested alternative.

      Same here amigo, I’m really torn..I would like to believe it’s a cannon but that might not be considered a weapon compared to a gun, something we can wield. Whatever it is, it seems to be made to deal with the animals… So it must be a handheld weapon of some type. I just can’t see a hand grenade or a rocket launcher or a gun.. I think those are just too modern. … Although we have technology… Who knows…but whatever it is going to be, I’m sure it’s going to fit with the game.
