Traditionally, there is a bunch of new animals coming in 1.26. I know that the Orca is very popular and cool, so one of them is also a cetacean. And a cute one, too. See for yourselves:
Calling all zoologists out there, can you tell me what animal is that :-)
People are crying out to get spawner eggs for Orca in creative, but I think it should stay inaccessible as it is. At least there is something you have to get the hard way, even in creative! So, this new beauty will also have no spawner egg. To get one you have to go far into the deep ocean, find it and lure it.
I still have a fair amount of work to do on the clothing, the largest chunk being linking it up with the survival system. After that – release.
Have you heard the news yet? Notch sold Minecraft to Microsoft. It’s a bit of a shame, I don’t fully understand why he did it. Apparently, neither does him: “I’m aware this goes against a lot of what I’ve said in public. I have no good response to that“. That sums it up, really. Certainly, not for want of money…
I don’t know what effect the sale will have on Survivalcraft. Hopefully none. Hopefully, Microsoft will not go onto a legal rampage to extinguish “Minecraft clones”. In theory game mechanics (such as blocks) cannot be copyrighted, only tangible assets can, so we should be safe. But God is always on the side of better paid lawyers :-)
I was happier when Notch owned Minecraft. At least he was a sensible guy. Multinational corporations are scary.
On a more jolly note, my friend from Jake Games made a free version of Wreckin Robot for anyone to try – and the paid version has 5.0 stars! Here’s the link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jakegames.wreckinrobotdemo. Try it out and give him some feedback.
