Using old versions of Survivalcraft

The analytics library I am using tells me that a lot of people still use an old version of Survivalcraft. Actually only about 25% of sessions seem to be played on Alpha 1.7 as of today, remaining 75% is on older versions. I don’t know whether this is true or how accurate this is.

The number looks highly suspicious to me, but maybe a lot of people just play the game and never look in the blog or see the update notifications on the phone? Maybe I should add some form of update notification to the main menu screen.

To clarify, there is nothing wrong with someone playing an old version if he choses to do so, it’s OK with me :-) But you’re missing a lot of features.

On the game front, I am working on some hot and fiery stuff now.

    Can your library separate paid version player and pirates that hack the app by downloading SC on their phone to save few € that you deserve so much? Maybe those persons don’t want to update very version with the pirate way every time a new version is released, that is to say very often…
    If it is not already the case, the app needs to be secured, no?

      No problem with French marketplace, SC is well notified when a new version is released… Maybe it is specific to US marketplace.

    I gots the 1.7 its so awesome, can’t wait for what you have planned. And I’m hoping by “hot and fiery stuff” you mean either lava or maybe a campfire so i can cook bacon in the wild (maybe it could scare boars and other mobs away at night)

    My wife doesn’t have the market place tile pined to her phone. I was on her phone the other day and showed her all her updates ( she had 7 or 8 ) that she didn’t even know she had.

      I think Microsoft should make app updates more visible, they are quite hard to find.

        Ive updated regularly since 1.0, but if you recall in the original version 1 block of glass could be made from 1 block of sand without any furnace, etc. Those were the good old days

    Hello
    I am a small clame, I don’t know whether it is voluntary or not but we can’t keep locking up animal as in a zoo. After a while they disappear.
    It would be more fun if we could keep them all the time trap in a place.
    And a last claim, it would be nice that a future update is the playability of the game, to improve the control and that there is less slowdown.
    Sorry for English use, but a translator help me.

      Hi maxiracong. Purchased applications are tied to your xbox live account. You just need to use the same xbox live account you had on the old phone.
