Lesser thing

The new creature hasn’t eaten me, I am all good and working hard on the new stuff. 75% of my time is now taken by the Big Thing, so lesser things must sadly come slower.

But yesterday, seeing all the worried comments asking what’s happening to Kaalus, I decided to switch priorities for a while and work on something smaller. This nice feature had been half-done for a couple of months, but yesterday and today I got it to a presentable state. See for yourself:  http://youtu.be/4qVQOXgwWqg

It still needs some polish, especially ladder climbing and action animations. After I do that I’ll get back to work on the Big Thing, which will likely see the light in 1.18.

    HOW IS THIS LESSER?! THIS IS AWESOME!

    On a side note, this ‘Big’ thing is gonna be epic, if this is the small thing. Way to go Kaalus! You never disappoint!

      I think when Kaalus uses the word Lesser, Its like the lesser watch in OF&H’s, “Its worth millions to us”

    Это потрясно! Но мне кажется ты должен убрать BUG, когда смотришь на грань блока и видишь две зеркальные текстуры. Это некрасиво…

        If i’m right i think groser is right, and now we will see uncle walter more, you will probably make him more beautiful in time, to look as good as the other scenery. But if we get clothing and armour that all would be unessesary. could we use the phones panarama picture mode to enable a wrapping of our own ugly images onto face?

          Если я прав, что я думаю, groser является правильным, и теперь мы увидим дядя Уолтер больше, вы вероятно сделает его более красивым вовремя, чтобы выглядеть так хорошо, как другие декорации. Но если мы получим одежду и броню, что все будет unessesary. могли бы мы используем режим изображения Панарама телефоны чтобы упаковка нашей собственной уродливые образы на лице?

    Cool feature I just have a question towards how you work orbit mode, like move the camera or zoom in plus if u r going to allow customizable skins.

    • Posted October 1, 2012 at 16:07 | Permalink | Reply

      You move and zoom the camera using regular move and look controls. The player is fixed while orbit mode is on.

    Very Cool Had an inclining part of the front screen may have changed but thought it was gonna be a toggle for weather, much prefer this though Fantastic Kaalus.

    Awesome! What’s next? Give us a hint?
    Btw working on armor stuff and skins make sense now!

    UI seems to be a little messed up now, maybe needed some revising…

      What’s wrong with the UI? Do you mean there are too many buttons?

        I don’t think playing in my normal mode their will only be two on right but that would crunch up the health hearts. Could there just be a pause button taking you to further UI with all the buttons on? I think that would work well.

          A pause button could help you getting the perfect camera angle esp. if there are wild animals near. Maybe just the camera, flying mode, night&day, and camera orbit going on the paused screen. does that make sense?

        Hey Kaalus, I couldn’t explain myself briefly (as usual) so I made this thread on the forum: http://survivalcraft.lefora.com/2012/10/01/ui-revising/, take a look and give me your opinion please!
        Keep up your amazing work!

    What about windows phone 8? Is this game will be on WP 8?

    • Posted October 1, 2012 at 16:06 | Permalink | Reply

      WP8 will run all WP7 apps, according to Microsoft. So, yes.

    Kallus have you ever considered having a few built in mods that can be toggled, like instant death nukes or unlimited life?
    Not very realistic and perhaps too close to minecraft, but would be a cool feature

    I am not sure if anyone else has had this problem or not, but I have been plagued by an overabundance of bears. They are spanning outside of caves, usually two or three together. Worse still, bovines (cows/bulls) are practically gone, with the exception of a rare, lone specimen wandering around. I think it is related somehow, as it has been an oppositly proportional thing. I am guessing it is a bug, or perhaps a file save corruption… Anyway, I hope this helps in the “search and destroy” phase. Keep up the great work kaluus, I am excited to see what this “greater thing” will be!

    Is it just me or do these trees and mountains not look like normal survivalcraft trees and mountains. Also I think clothing or armor will probably be added some time because of an email I got from kaalus along time ago about the hint button.

Also I think clothing or armor will be added at some point because of an email I got from kaalus a long time ago about the hint button and what it said. This was back when the game was around .99 .
