Cannons

I promised to show you a cannon, and here it is, enjoy the new video:

I have a few more devices to test 1.25 on before I push it out for Google Play first.

For those who don’t know yet, the update process works as follows. I release the build to Google Play only. Google Play folks download it in large numbers and test, test, test. Usually there are a few issues that sneaked past my beta testing (which is what I am doing now). After fixing them and making sure the build is watertight enough, I release for the remaining platforms (iOS, Kindle and Windows Phone).

The reason for this is Google Play does not require lengthy certification, allowing me to push out quick fixes within hours of bugs being discovered. On all other platforms each update takes about a week. That would make the testing impossible.

Btw. I am now testing on HTC Desire, the oldest test device I have (released March 2010). Real mobile prehistory. Still handles the game, although you need to lower the settings a fair  bit.

      Talk to Apple – Kaalus goes with the market that is most efficient for testing. Apple is not it.

      Apple will test it and if they find its too buggy they will reject it,google play helps

      It is easier to publish via Google Play Store

      No its not. Android has way more features to it. Besides, Google Play certifies it faster because ios takes to long to certify it.

      Google play gets to test it first, DEAL WITH IT!

    Nice feature kaalus. One pro tip: On windows phone, the certification is also now much faster so it’s only amazon and apple who can take up to a week for cert. Of course, if they need to test manually, it can also take a few days but in the most cases, the cert only takes around 30min-1h ;)

    Super! So floating gunpowder and gunpowder barrels are now igniteable. Two ideas:
    …1 make gunpowder placeable like snow is. Then it can be laid like tripwire as a trap that cannot be picked up.
    …2 a new kind of block state – supportable. It falls to ground like sand if no blocks beneath, but sides are STICKY so you can build a platform on top of leg(s). Knock out the leg support and the whole platform falls. Use this with cannon to build a collapsing trap. I tried with a wood block on cactus leg. You can see wood floats in midair. The sand block crunched the cactus leg immediately, that was kind of cool

          This site could use an admin to auto filter some of the filth we see in some comments from previous posts to future posts

          This wordpress site? Hmm, you need a WP account to comment. I have not seen filth here but if you see it you could report it to WP I’m sure.

    Lol, I myself have just upgraded my pre history mobile phone. Xperia Arc to Xperia Z1. Certainly makes a difference. At least I can now play it on the highest settings.

    There’s a bug where you can mount a boat on fire and not get hurt.

    • Posted May 18, 2014 at 01:01 | Permalink | Reply

      Hey you’re right. In water or on land you don’t get burned. Even a burning grass block can set you on fire. But a whole boat doesn’t.

    Ii think landmines are something that should be put into consideration.

    I think this is awesome. Finally some animal PEST REMOVER. Question with the cannon will the block you put in it hurt anything if it falls on them

    Also can you make whips and lassos so it could easier to do so much more things with the vies. Like with a lasso you could catch wild animals,like horses and zebras for example, and move them to different spots. And,unlike the saddle, using the lasso will keep the animals wild, cause I’m tired of trying to move animals like horses, but also trying not to use the saddle cause I like to keep them wild. And not only that more motions in the animals would be nice as well, like rearing for the horses and donkeys sitting for the wolves and hyenas laying down for like all the animals. And stuff like that

          Hey Kallus is trying as hard as he can. Do you know how long it would take one developer
          (Kallus) to add multiplayer. If you want multiplayer you can offer your help making Survivalcraft

    Visit my blog! I am making a second version of spooner’s original Animator Pro (all credit to him for the original idea) It will be called Animator Pro Part 2. It will be apart of the large city that the Survivalcraft City Crafters and I are building. It is going to be a theater in the theme park of the city. Check it out and join my blog and Survivalcraft City Crafters if you are a good builder! :D

    Only the last one…I’m sorry but why, WHY make the easiest food source – birds – even harder to catch? In a game that is now all about eating every 45 seconds (in challenge mode)? If, that is, you can sneak around the wolves, hyenas, bears, lions, and tigers greeting you at your door every morning. You may as well change the name to Starvationcraft.

      Sorry to be harsh. Just I was so happy I could catch birds with my machete in Challenging mode. Now I’ll starve for sure.

        aesop the bow and arrow gets a direct hit every time. Unlike the spear you can aim directly on the bird and not above it and it will kill it in one shot. With wood and stone arrows you can still do it with one shot if you give maximum release. Ever scince 1.24 I’ve always had a bow and arrows in my inventory at all times lol

        • Posted May 19, 2014 at 15:55 | Permalink

          One shot one kill? Thanks amigo! I will craft a bow and arrows and er, give it a shot.
