Has anyone got 1.13?

I can’t see it yet. Microsoft seems to be taking longer than usual to publish it. Once it’s in all the marketplaces I’ll update MOTD to get people to update.

I am currently working mainly on bugfixes to catch up on quality. The ladder dismounting bug is gone. Also replacing broken XNA text rendering engine with my own that I have full control of and which is also faster.

The one bug that I still haven’t touched is getting stuck under ice. I think this has something to do with water currents being erroneously created where they shouldn’t and keeping you under. Evil!

For 1.14 I am inclined towards trying how hard it would be to add a 3rd person view. If it gets too involved, I may switch to something else.

We are now close to having half of the available block IDs used. Fortunately I have improved the tech slightly, so I may be able to free up some already taken ids if I need to.

    No I just checked myself and it is still no there, perhaps around noon time EST. We’ll see.

    Hey Kaalus, I have a question: is there a possible reason for it taking so long? Has this happened before?

      Yes this has happened before, I think 1.11 didn’t pass or didn’t get reviewed and then when submitted again it took a couple of days after passing cert

    Usually takes about 2-4 days after passing cert for me (Ontario,Canada) not just survivalcraft but pretty much anything so nothing yet

    Clothes and armor would be cool. You already have a slot for it made. Also in a previous post someone suggested blow darts and I like that idea. It was an early weapon in the world and could be crafted from materials found in your surroundings (ex. Bamboo…..) also If you decided to add npc’s a blow dart could be their weapon if they weren’t acting friendly. Maybe all npc’s would act unfriendly and try to kill you unless you gave them some food or something. In minecraft they are defenseless so why would they even be able to survive. If they had blow darts or maybe you would prefer some other weapon they would actually be able to survive in a world with threats. The trick part would be how they would be able to make houses but with kaalus’s skill he should be able to figure it out.

    Whenever I try to load my old world (1.12) after updating to 1.13 it starts out by saying “loading world” as usual but then before it loads it kicks me out to the SurvivalCraft menu screen. (I already tried resetting my phone.)

      Can you please upload it to Dropbox and email it to me so that I can see what’s wrong with it?

    I found a bug. The grass. I fenced off an area to put animals in. When I came back they were gone. The grass had destroyed a part of the fence because it spawned there so all my animals got out :(. It also happened with cobblestone with one of my houses. If I can do anything please let me know.

    Kaalus, we need an emergency bug fix ASAP.

    I was able to open a world, and then I got lost so I downloaded my backup world of it and it just kicks me to the start. I’ve seen a couple of things about it.

    Seeing the same thing. My massive replica of the Giza plateau wont load anymore, it just kicks me back to the main menu.
    My pokemon map loads, and as expected, the grass has totally destroyed it… but it didn’t get the new sky. It still has the old sky from 1.12

    Made a brand new map, and it’s the only one working correctly. Loads and has the new sky.

    My main world, which I used last before the update is not loading. The back up on DropBox works though, and so did every other world I have. Hope those details help in solving the issue…

    The shading on everything is an eyesore, can you make it to where the brightness is able to be set higher?

    Kaalus there is a bug where half of a fence disappears when you leave a “chunk” and come back and next to the fence there is grass, which causes half the fence to disappear. And when you leave a chunk animals hop fences, especially bulls

      Same thing happened to me. I cleared out all the grass surrounding it and haven’t had a problem. It also happened to one of my houses

      • Posted July 14, 2012 at 17:42 | Permalink | Reply

        Yep, that’s the grass regrowth problem. This is already fixed for 1.14 which will be emergency update.
