Alpha 1.5 still not available

It seems the celebrations were a bit premature, as far as I know Alpha 1.5, although officially certified 24 hours ago, is still not available for download anywhere. So maybe my original estimate of Friday will turn out correct. I haven’t heard anything from Microsoft since the email, and there are rumours on the internet of some sort of delays in the HQ as found by Omega Ra here http://www.wpcentral.com/marketplace-updates-late-two-weeks-row-fragger-trapped-behind-enemy-lines.

In the meantime I am modelling the next animal to be added to Survivalcraft in the 1.6 release. This will be a land animal, and it may be dangerous sometimes :-)

      No, no it has to be an apple fanboy that roams the island in search of a 4g signal.

        Warning: The Apple and Android fanboys may appear to be laggy. That is not your Windows Phone or Survivalcraft. That is just a side effect of the inferior speed of their OS. :)

    I think that cow, pig and sheep are necessarily to add. We need we need a reason to build a shelter, maybe it will be fun to run away from zombies.

      Starting to sound very much like mine craft though, maybe less common forms of meat such as buffalo, goats, deer, and rabbit

        I love that idea but why don’t we add mummies,fish,sea monsters,other islanders that try to kill you also add a sling shot,bow and stronger minerals like obsidian,lava,gold. I like this app very much also it would be good to have some food.

    Lol what ya think? Make the fanboys look like sheep, iPhone sheep are clean-white walk around sad expressed face looking for a 5 bar signal. And android could be greenish black sheep, you can hear them a mile away trash talking on a blu tooth about apps, looking for someone to lend a ear to the hype!! Look out, OS SHeePle!!<3 LmaO!!

      Maybe silver will be a new mineral in 1.6, think about sort, you’d need silver doors to keep them out at night, you could even use them to frame your windows or tip you spears

      Im in the same boat,, Hope I dont have to start again. Making a new world works but I had to close the game and re-open it for it to show. Just to see the birds

      Even after a reboot I cannot get the world to load. If I create a new world I had to reopen it for it to show too. I hope I don’t lose my world :(

    On the plus side, apart from the work loading issue, this is just a great update. The world feels so much more alive now with all the birds around.

    I also think that you have indeed fixed the block placing bug, now it seems to place blocks for me every time correctly, so I can now build much easier.

    Thanks Kaalus!

    How to load your existing world in new update with no issues: download/install update, do NOT run game, reboot phone, start game, load existing world, enjoy. Worked for me on three phones.

      Also, here’s a tip if you’re worried about losing spears and desperate for food to heal: go to beach, activate sneak mode, move toward your prey within 2-3 block’s length, tap on prey, you will not throw spear and with second tap you now have fresh, plucked raw bird ready for the oven. Tasty BBQ! Happy hunting fellow Survivalcrafters.

      How do you know that would have resolved the issue for those that had it? You may not have had the issue with any of your worlds anyway. Mine is 8.5MB, I dont know if it could be size related.

        I downloaded it this morning in the us. Just turn off your phone completely and then turn it back on and open up survivalcraft on the marketplace.

    Go to the app in the marketplace, then press back, then into the app again.

    Some type of danger is needed. Doesn’t matter if it’s a Wolf, or Zombie to me honestly as long as it presents some type of danger. I love the game, but as it is now there is nothing to fear when I venture out. Which makes it kinda boring at times.

    Hi!
    Thanks for all the awesome updates.
    unfortunately my world won’t load after the last one. I just get kicked back to the menu screen.
    Really hoping I don’t have to start a new world.
    Have you heard this problem from any other users?

    When I try to start my saved game with this new update, it goes to the loading world screen and then back to the title screen, any idea why?

  29. Posted January 26, 2012 at 23:26 | Permalink | Reply

    My app doesn’t say that it is ready for and update!
    I want to kill stuff!

    My world loaded fine kaalus. 9.19mb on my HTC radar. Best update yet. Sorry for people not loading old worlds. Just a bug I found: when I’m in sneak and look over a ledge, then throw a spear downwards over the ledge I take damage. Unfortunate when I’m low on health and hunting on a mountain. Please fix this thank you!
