Alpha 1.11 passed cert!

Just got the email. Good times. Should be in the marketplace by the end of today (unless Microsoft marketplace does not update on weekends?). Anyway, please download and set the world on fire, or alternatively blow it up to pieces.

    For everyone who keeps on asking if anyone has gotten the update plz stop because it wastes space that Kaalus needs so that people can talk about bugs in the game or new features. if someone got the update i’m pretty positive they would post it once they get it. Until then plz wait as patiently as possible.

    In 1.12 an idea is to add a metal (maybe chromium) to mix with iron in a furnace to make steel, but I’m not sure that chromium is what is used to make a steel alloy.

    • Posted May 20, 2012 at 13:14 | Permalink | Reply

      If we wanted to be realistic, to make steel you need to add coal to iron. But because during smelting a lot of carbon ends up in the iron anyway, you actually need to remove carbon to get something useful. All in all I think it’s a dead end – smelting coal with iron is too easy. I want to a better metal than iron, but I don’t have a definite idea what this will be yet. Any suggestions?

        How about titanium

      • Duxk
        Posted May 20, 2012 at 15:04 | Permalink | Reply

        Bronze. Definitely Bronze. It’s stronger than Iron. We just stopped using it for weapons because iron was cheaper.

        Plus Bronze is bad ass.

        • Posted May 20, 2012 at 19:04 | Permalink

          Yes, bronze is one option I’ve had in mind since adding copper back in 1.2. The problem is bronze is not stronger than iron. But I could grant myself some artistic licence here and make it stronger. Then I would have to add a new mineral, tin. Tin could even later be used for solder on electric stuff I plan to make eventually.

          But this idea has the following problems:
          – Tin is not very exciting or colorful, it would look pretty much like iron
          – Bronze is not really stronger than iron

          Another option is to cheat even more and make bronze an alloy of iron and copper, avoiding tin. I don’t think such alloy exists in reality. The problem with that is we don’t get a new mineral to search for.

          So, has anyone got more ideas?

        • DUCK ZUES
          Posted May 20, 2012 at 19:24 | Permalink

          I say you could make swords go in strength like wood to bronze to iron to gold to diamond to platinum…

        • Posted May 20, 2012 at 19:41 | Permalink

          The problem with this is that bronze would be harder to make than iron (two ingredients vs one), and also gold, diamond and platinum swords are not very realistic.

        • DUCK ZUES
          Posted May 20, 2012 at 19:45 | Permalink

          Your right… Couldn’t you use bones of killed animals as weapons or maybe you can add a store for only cruel mode and it can take gold to make certain weapons better… Maybe you van modify weapons by adding in to them

        About titanium. It looks pretty much like iron so I would have hard time making it distinguishable visually.

        • DUCK ZUES
          Posted May 20, 2012 at 19:53 | Permalink

          Yes I thought about it and when you make a sword you should be able to make a sharpening machine to make do more damage…

      • bob
        Posted May 20, 2012 at 20:26 | Permalink | Reply

        it’s true that a diamond tool wouldn’t be very realistic, but what would be realistic is to be able to put a diamond tip on tools to make them a little stronger.

        • DUCK ZUES
          Posted May 20, 2012 at 21:13 | Permalink

          I think that would look really weird but it is not a bad idea you could just when making a tool or weapon add diamond to the ingredients to make it stronger… But the diamond tip thing would be perfect for a spear…

        will do – I’ll probably give it a go tomorrow. Select the world to load, it goes to the loading screen, pauses and then returns to the main Survivalcraft screen. Before I reinstall, do you want me to send over any additional details?

        • Posted May 20, 2012 at 22:13 | Permalink

          If you could send me the world that is not loading it would be great.

          Items on fire will be pink in custom texture packs until they are updated. Default texture pack should not be pink.

        how about you make it so instead of the items that are not updated in a custom texture pack turn purple you make those items automatically switch to the default texture. It’s just a thought. Idk if you can do it.

    before i had the idea of adding travelers that you can pay to help you. To add to this idea is that you can put combat setting on them. You can make them protective or aggresive. Also if they help you mine or fight you have to give them a mining pick to use or a weapon to use

        The only difference is that animated textures cannot be disabled anymore (due to fire). Have you had them disabled before? Are you using the default texturepack?

          They do not make a huge difference, less than 5%, but due to fire this had to go unfortunately.

      • Posted May 21, 2012 at 10:17 | Permalink | Reply

        When stuff is on fire the game may go slower because it has to regenerate the geometry periodically (as fire eats blocks).
