Windows Phone 7 does not support shaders. This is true. It is probably the cause of largest amount of pain of all the things to do with Survivalcraft. WP7 is the lowest common denominator platform for me, and is giving me shivers. Because of lack of shaders, I am still working on clothing/armor. If I could only do what is trivial with shaders. But I can’t. It’s nigh on impossible to render clothing properly without them.
However, I will do it somehow. So sleep well :-)
If WP7 keeps pissing in my cornflakes like that, I may eventually ditch it and switch to supporting Windows Phone 8 only.
In the meantime, to cool off, I want to talk about something more pleasant. 1.26 will make a substantial change to how animals behave. I won’t spell out the details yet, but the changes were requested by you many times. And they make the game more interesting. For now I’ll leave you to guess what exactly these changes are, I will likely do a video to show you what I mean before the release. For once, they are already done and partially tested, unlike the clothing *&$%#^.
Now something else. A friend of mine has recently started working on a mobile game of his own, and (how the time flies!), he’s now released it to Google Play:
It’s a cute physics based game and he’s still updating it, so needs all the feedback he can get. Here’s a link to his blog: http://www.wreckin-robot.blogspot.co.uk
