Something big

I am working on recreating all the tools as 3D models to improve visual quality. So far I’ve got the shovel done. I’ll post some pictures when it’s ready.

Yesterday I improved the performance a bit more. I noticed that one of the optimizations that were a part of 1.16 is not working as it should, and got it fixed. I also have a model of a new spooky creature, but I want it to use a different mode of movement than the existing ones and be more dangerous. Not sure how it will turn out.

Most importantly however, I’ve been working on something big for the game, so recently I didn’t have much time left to do any revolutionary changes. I can’t say what this new thing is yet, but as it’s getting closer to being finished I’ll start dropping hints. And no, it’s not multiplayer. Not yet :-)

    Sounds good kaalus :) (Y) I’m sure I speak for the majority of players though when I say, we would prefer more interesting features, rather than more and more animals being added in game :P Look forward to this big feature :) :)

      More animals are fine… Makes the game more “lively”.

        Villages with people, you trade with them and the way you treat them that’s how they will treat you. Kaalus could make it so that the villages are deep inland. Other than that I haven’t thought of what he could add to the game.

    Well, he mentioned it would be “spooky”, “more dangerous”, and have “different movement”. And as always, it is a realistic animal…

    We’ve had African birds and some European boars American bears and some recent polar creatures, it may well be an Aussie creature.

        SC is more of a “realistic block world” game. I highly doubt it will be ghosts. I am thinking it will be a stealthy predator, some sort of large feline maybe (?). An owl can be described as “spooky” by some, but I doubt that. And sharks are limited to the water, it will only be a waste of memory space… Thus, I will stick with big cat.

          spooky creatures. are ghosts, zombies, spiders, jack o lanterns, gargoils, goblins, withches, wharewolves, vampires, demons and one other real creature that can be found in caves and will probably available to us around the eve of all hallows or (halloween) and have a connetion to vampires.

        • brian t

          a spooky creature that has different movements (i guess he means to some other previously used creatures) Birds have a different enviroment to the new creature. they use the air but not caves say, I could be entirely wrong.

          I do not think bats are a real danger. However, Vampire bats ( a real species) could potentially be a “contagion carrier”, which would be spooky and interesting; a slow but steady death by disease, slowing and weakening the player as it progresses until the player is unable to move, and incurable unless medicated by herbs.

          i think bats in caves in daytime will be sleeping, and at night will attack an fly outside, and could attack, they like bears ect will have a given level they may attack from and light may pursuade them to stay nearer the upper levels of deep caves. what do you think SK.?

    The logical explanation would be a snake it has no legs or wings thus making it “move differently” from other animals and people think they are spooky. Now I could be wrong but that’s what I think

    i like the snake idea but he does mention the movement being different to the existant ones so either flying creature or four legged creatures or maybe both a mammal or flying creature.
