1.13 bug

1.13 will not open old worlds if there is a wolf or a coyote which spawned during the night present.

I have identified and fixed the problem. I think the best way for me to deal with this is to make an emergency bugfix release, 1.14. Unfortunately it will still take several days for it to reach you :-(

In the meantime if you are desperate to get your world working, follow these instructions to fix it (requires Dropbox and a PC):

  1. Get your world to a PC through Dropbox (i.e. upload to Dropbox from the game and download on your PC)
  2. Rename the world file from “YourWorldName.scworld” to “YourWorldName.zip”
  3. Extract the contents of the zip. There will be two files: “Chunks.dat” and “Project.xml”. It’s Project.xml that is broken.
  4. Open extracted Project.xml in a plain text editor (for example Notepad on Windows).
  5. Search and replace all instances of Value=”Dangerous” to Value=”Normal” (in Notepad using Edit->Replace menu). There should be at least one instance if your world does not work.
  6. Save the file and pack back into a zip along with Chunks.dat (on windows you can do it using “Send To->Compressed folder” in Explorer)
  7. Rename .zip extension back to .scworld
  8. Get it back on your phone (upload it to Dropbox on PC and download on the Phone).
  9. The world should now work.

For more advanced users: you need to replace all attributes with value “Dangerous” with “Normal” in Project.xml.

This has been verified to work by one person so far.

    This is a repost.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.
