Meet the duck

Lunch! But how to get it?

There are 3 types of bird now, and each of them spawns in a different type of environment. Ducks spawn in warm wetlands, love swimming in the ponds and quacking. They are the slowest and easiest to catch of the bunch.

In fact I wanted to make a video, but it takes so much time and it’s 1:30 AM already… Anyway, they have animated body parts and fly. You get the picture :-)

    I like how the person in the background is just staring at the duck. You need to get more sleep Kaalus. You might turn into a zombie.

      May i also suggest adding bows and arrows for weapons in the game. I think that guns would ruin the game.

        Completely agree, now that there are animals weapons are needed. Things like spears, swords, hunting knife, bows, catapult etc primitive stuff anything more would ruin it. :) the ability to carry a side weapon as well as a main would be awesome as well for example bow as main weapon sword or hunting knife as a side/second weapon and you could have a switcher button on the right hand side of the screen. lovin the game keep up the good work. :D

      I think guns are a bit to in the future. But I get your point.

    I love the duck, it looks awesome Kaalus! I dont think there is another Minecraft clone with mobs in or day/night cycles. Guns would be great too, I would love to go hunting at dusk and find a flock of ducks sitting on a pond! They need to fly away of someone approaches to make it challenging. Will we be able to cook the duck?

    instead of a bow use a crossbow.. I think there is no crossbow in minecraft, so why not add one?
    anyway very good work kaalus :) I really like it- but I agree with jriot10, you need to get more sleep or you will really get a zombie

      I think that a crossbow might be to much a stretch but i see what you mean;.

    I say bow and arrow or crossbow, just because it is in minecraft doesn’t mean we can’t use it, these are basic tools…granted we don’t want EVERYTHING like minecraft, but some of the basica stuff like bows and such we can include.

    A very nice picture of a duck :D
    How do you take these Screenshots?
    Do you have an Debugmode, where you can enable 3rd person?
    Will we probably get this mode too?

    Anyway, I’d like to see this ducks ingame by myself.
    I hope, there’s a lot more which you will add :D
    SC is one of the best games I ever played :D

    But don’t work too hard, you’re like a machine :D (4 Updates in ~2 months, thats really much for such a short time)

      Hi Mirco. The screenshot is taken from a debug build on a PC. Third person mode would require me to add proper item holding animations first.

    I think guns would definately ruin the game. I would be happy to see the game moving towards the RPG style with medieval theme. Skills would also be awesome, and they could be saved online, and then you could be the multiplayer feature on this. Having a multiplayer SurvivalCraft with skills would be more than awesome. Of course, I don’t think you should add skills next, because it would need adding a lot of items, tools, and weapons. I’m still voting on multiplayer… I have about 8 friends who have SurvivalCraft, so, it would be amazing.

      You have 8 friends with windows phones? Everybody that i tell to get a windows phone says that iphones are better and they would rather have an iphone.

      I think multiplayer should be considered last… With multiplayer at this alpha stage, there isn’t much people can do in game together. You can build but coordination would be extremely difficult and to be in sync with each other would be extremely difficult as well. Why don’t we wait on multiplayer until more survival features are added to the game first? I’d rather wait until the game is more complete before I’m staring at someone else in my game, wouldn’t anyone else?

    So ducks are only 1 type? Oooh, can’t wait to see future updates. Log me as another vote for a crossbow/bow.

    Everybody your rushing kaalus to do to many things at once when the game is gona be a slow work it progress.but I agree with some of the people on weapons because the faster the bird the harder to get so a bow would be cool. I dont think there is a point to add sword until there is actually more if a ground animal like pigs or anything that just walks. But dont get to advanced with the weapons like some of the people are talking about, one comment said you should add a catapult and that would be so stupid, and dont ever add guns that will ruin any game like this. And some people are trying to say you should make this alot like an RPG but that would kinda ruin it because that is not what SC or any other game like this is about. Anyway keep up the good work kaalus

      Animals haven’t even been fully implemented yet. Who knows what kind of different problems are gonna arise. I’m sure Kaalus isn’t gonna make animals that are pretty to stare. If that’s all they do at first then great, this is still Alpha and I expect to test things before them being fully complete. When the time comes for weapons or certain tools then I’m sure we will be notified

        Guns are a huge step. the’re really isn’t a good reason for it yet and you’ll need to to go on a journey for
        material for the bullets and I’m sure the materials will be very rare. and the guns physics will crash your phone, don’t temp weapons, the bigger the worst.(& the better, but mostly bad.) the reason Minecraft got to master the Guns mod was because it has to be based on PC not Mobile. Mobiles succeed with very high physics. The End.
