Spears sticking in wood

I am testing the big thing and adding some small stuff for 1.18:

Amazingly, despite the shortage of hints some of you are getting close to guessing what this big thing will be. It’s different from anything I did to the game before, and it took me a long time to do, I think since June in fact! Keep trying :-)

If everything goes well with 1.17 submission (which is still at Microsoft), I plan to release the big thing some time after 1.17 hits the marketplaces.

    You should have a gore mode. You know with blood and stuff. And then a clean mode where it is peaceful and non violent

    I looked at the posts on this website all the way back to June 1st and have noted the few things Kaalus has hinted to in respect to future additions to Survivalcraft.

    Kaalus has noted possible creation of the following things:

    Sun related navigation including a sextant leading to caches the character must find find to create something.
    Certain things happening exclusively at certain moon cycles such as angrier wolves during a full moon.
    Something related to animal persistence.
    Falling dirt.
    And finally (and this one is my personal favourite) rain modifying the rate at which wet dirt blocks fall.

    I hate to give my personal opinion on what the possible update may be, at the chance of being wrong and making someone feel as though I’m not grateful for what is given, but I believe that this “Big Thing” may be weather conditions. I’m somewhat inclined to doubt myself due to Kaalus typing the “Big Thing” with capitals making me believe that it may be a living thing or place. Regardless, I will, as always, utterly enjoy each addition to Survivalcraft as each change makes the game so much more fun and in depth, creating a truly lasting appeal to a game which requires only my thumbs, eyes and imagination.

    Thanks for everything you’ve done Kaalus and please don’t ever stop being awesome!

    Here is my guess that I have thought about for a while and it made a lot of sense to me although it isn’t much of a big thing to me it is pretty awesome and it would be a cool feature. My guess is that he is adding multiple islands so that the world is not just a single giants strip of land. This way you could travel to different islands. Weather is also a very good guess as it also has to due with optimizating the code. If the multiple islands is not the correct annswer then it would still be a very awesome/ awesomely amazing feature to have in the game.

    And another guess I came up with while is was typing that huge paragraph is that he would be adding “dungeons” or some generated structure that you would find while exploring or mining. If I got the big thing right then you should make a post about it so I can stop thinking about it while I try to do homework.

    As I said earlier it’s probably a port of Survivalcraft for Windows 8/RT. I’m pretty confident about it.

      I don’t think so because he said I came out in 1.18. I wouldn’t need an update to the phone if he was just putting it on win 8. Plus it’s still in alpha so that’s alot more coding for each update.

      It is most definently not a port of Survivalcraft for windows 8 as apps are automatically made avaible for windows 8 also he said in a previous post that he had to do some things to fix the depth bias. The PC version of survivalcraft is a pretty good guess though.

        You mix up Windows 8 with Windows Phone 8. From the beginning I was talking about computer OS(Windows 8 and Windows RT). Look again at what I said.

    It could be possible that the “Big Thing” could be a separate platform version of SC. Maybe on PC? Just speculating.

          Could they stay put forever, I guess the way certain inventory works thats no, not without major changes to whole game. sorry answered myself. there goes my long distance spear challenge from tallest building. I’d be playing on my own at mo anyway.

    I was hoping (The Big Thing) may be a large creation or am I being too politicaly correct?

    I know tools are not stackable but yours come from one place and return to seperate slots unless exactly the same?

    Epic i thought he may move towards power orig and the big thing being techs to support it. I now think it’s gonna be something many of have asked for , given it’s launch time between 1.17 and 1.18 i think the move towards more players and it being BIG, I think a new platform such as PC etc..

    I have prompted and many others how the game could be used on PC etc. and he is already using a pc to gear the game that, that move is very possible. And maybe planned anyway. It would bring more into the game given then the abbility to port videos made by us and others, and the fact the mobile game is so good this would be a very new thing seing mobile games going to larger platforms like pc.

    Kaalus stated his work began in june and we are approaching november. It would take very long to Create other platforms of game. But i could be wildly wrong, just hoping i guess. the only problem i see is the controls. On pc the mouse could be your digging finger, i would like to see two keys that are close to be your move and look but it gets complicated. his own pc vids seem to work well so he has that sorted. some of the things worked on recently do lend to that move… Lets just wait and see.

    Last comment, given that we have dropbox the game could work very well on many platforms eventually. Dropbox supports windows mobiles and pc. Play on mobile updtae world to dropbox, if you play on your pc at night update and continue where you were.
