Alpha 1.11 Submitted – with explosions

Explosions are in. You need to craft gunpowder from saltpeter, sulphur and coal. Then you can make gunpowder kegs, which come in 3 sizes: small, medium and large.

Once the fuse is ignited with a match, they will explode after several seconds. They can also be triggered by fire.

I am flying tomorrow morning, just a few hours of sleep left. It was an epic crunch to get this out on time! I only had one day to finish the explosions, so please forgive me if you discover some issues. Will fix when I am back next Sunday!

My guess is that Alpha 1.11 will hit the marketplace around Wednesday/Thursday.

Here’s a short video showing the kegs and explosions:

Edit: I didn’t manage to do anything fancy with explosion pressure propagation for this release, but I want to revisit it for the next one.

Edit2: Please remember I will not have internet access until next Sunday and will not post anything or reply to emails. Do not presume I am dead or turned zombie :-)

    What is pressure propogation?

    • Posted May 7, 2012 at 19:12 | Permalink | Reply

      I think it means if you buried the keg under something it would have a greater destructive effect. Like if you hold a firecracker in your open hand compared to a closed hand.

      Sheesh man, check yourself instead of spending more time asking people when you can simply search “survivalcraft” in the marketplace and look at the version.

    I think this time it will take more time since i also did an update to my application and it took 9 days and then you have to add one day for showing up in the marketplace :/

      Microsoft did say that it would take alot more time for updates to pass cert. I bet that’s what happened.
