Game mode changing

I’ve just finished adding game mode changing and world renaming. It was more complicated than I thought it will be, and I ended up refactoring large chunks of world files management. A visible effect of this change is that you can now have many worlds with the same name. Will come in handy when you’ll be able to download worlds made by others.

With all those people playing Survivalcraft, I was genuinely scared to even touch this code. There is always a risk of breaking something no matter how careful one is. But in the end I had to do it – otherwise there would be trouble. I sincerely hope I will not make you lose any worlds! It doesn’t break anything on mine, and I will spend some more time tomorrow testing it thoroughly. Still, it may not be enough.

This is how the new world modification UI looks:

Ops, just realized that you can now flip between Cruel and other modes – which is not good as it defeats the purpose of cruel. Will fix tomorrow :-) Flipping to and from Cruel will be forbidden.

    And how about adding worlds to SkyDrive for example? I want to make survival map, where will be something like quest, but how another players will get it?

    Thank you Kaalus, it’s actually amazing that you are doing what community asks for, and you’re doing it so quick! Other developers could learn a lot from you…

    Hm… How about adding a map? Is it even possible? I do not think compass is really needed as I always use the sun/moon, but a map could be useful…

      Ahh yes I had the same problem that you had dova but I’ve had lots of experience with games.. What worked with me is I turned of my phone and turned it back on. (Hold power button.) If this doesn’t work reply to my comment and I clicked notify me and I will tell you what else you can do…

      It’s still not submitted. I am working like mad to submit it by the end of the weekend. Unfortunately yesterday I got sidetracked and worked until 5am doing something that I now realize I don’t want to include in this release :-(

      I need better time management.
