Alpha 1.11 progress

I am still working on the new feature that will use sulphur and saltpeter. As you correctly guessed, it will be gunpowder :-)

I don’t know how it will be made to explode exactly yet, what I am working on now is the explosion physics. I want to do a pressure propagation-based simulation that will allow you to do more interesting things than just turn a sphere of rock into a sphere of air and play a “boom” sound.

We’ll see how it will turn out. What I want to achieve is that you will have to be clever how you place the explosives to get the effect you want.

    Cool. I like how your always trying to make the game realistic.

    Really helps give survivalcraft its own identity.

    I would like to commend you on your fantastic game. I, for now, am playing in the harmless mode because I really enjoy constructing projects. I have built one cliff house and am constructing a Bridge to nowhere. IE…..A great use of all the mining stash! Okay now for the question. Will there be any way to grow trees? Thanks and, again, well done!

    So, when Windows 8 comes out, are you going to port Survivalcraft to it? I would LOVE to use this on my tablet and my desktop. It would be awesome if you did. In some of the screenshots you posted, it looked like you were playing it on a computer.

    As long as TNT can not destroy all materiale (ex: solid iron blocks), then yes, making a bombard should be possible. Am I correct, kaalus?

      Peasant, go to the pet shop and buy a cat. Or better, adopt a streetcat, (i did) kaalus’ talents will not be wasted on adding cats to a game that doesn’t need them.

        You don’t want to make me angry. For your information I happen to have a cat I love even though she has mental issues. Just add cats you can be friend them. Most of you want monsters but didn’t the creator want it to be realaitsic

      I am not insulting you, nor am I “dissing” cats, again, I also have a cat. I don’t care for monsters, i simply do not believe it necessary to spam the discussion for one simply add-on, kaalus will decide whether he likes the idea or not the first time it is mentioned, it is hi’s game after all. About the medieval/21 century thing, no comment, but things were much better back in “ye olde days” (morally wise at least). Again, no hard feelings.
