1.17 is here!

Got the email from Microsoft a couple of hours ago. Microsoft have apparently changed the way they notify publishers, because as soon as I got the email the app has started appearing in the marketplaces. No more 48 hour delay, but the certification itself took 2 days longer. Or maybe it’s just a one off?

Anyway, please update and try out the new stuff. I know that the 3rd person camera does not work very well in confined spaces, thanks for spotting that. This is because it needs to stay outside of the walls, which means in a confined place it will be very close to the player (like a few inches away in some corner cases), which unfortunately makes it less useful. It’s good outside though :-)

Once 1.17 has been on the market for several days and there are no serious bugs I’ll be releasing the Big Thing!

    It says this software is not avaible for my device! I have the lumia 710???/

      That’s odd. There is no way to restrict the app on the marketplace other than from 256MB devices. But Nokia 710 is a 512MB device and I haven’t restricted it anyway (and don’t plan to). Let’s hope this is a temporary MS glitch.

    I can’t update it because of the new terms of use – so it will be a while before I can get it :(

      What terms of use do you mean? Is it something Microsoft has changed?

    If the BIG THING is not a feature….it must be….a…new control system?I don’t know honestly.

      I guess the keywords here are: system, survival, effects most of the game, not a feature, its big (for the game or plain elephant big) and has taken kaalus months to create. Maybe it has something to do with wintertime, summertime and so on or natural catastrophies? We’ll see

        I think kallus said at one it was something we don’t really see, so it could be something that let’s him do more work faster, or something kind of in the background. On the other hand it could be multiplayer or the groundwork for it.
        Who knows

      Search survivalcraft on the marketplace, tap on it , before you got the game, you tapped install, instead, now it says “update” . I live in norway, we arent supposed to be the ones getting things first :-P

    Sneak mode does not work properly, I can’t move without constantly stoping.

      Are you using buttons instead of the pad to move?

      has anyone else promted their phone to see the new version this way?, as may help others waiting for the update.

  11. Posted October 13, 2012 at 20:25 | Permalink | Reply

    Could you add the option to switch back to the old 2D tools/weapons? The way the 3D tools re-use textures from elsewhere in the texture pack can cause them to look very wrong with a lot of texture packs…

      so some small glitches with sneaking but they are very easy to work around and they may well be how you wanted them to be. I do need to read back on your instructions how to use them because i havent done that yet. But apart from that the game is so much better yet again. We are all ready for the Big Thing Just can’t wait. well done again tools are great. Thank You.

      It is a more so an idea. I personally believe that Kallus should add a transportation system other than flying. For example, you can make mine tracks and mine carts or trains. The same applies with the concept of a motorized vehicle. You can build roads, signs, and the vehicle itself. Also, I have another idea for blood. I am sure all of the gore fans would be rather found of that. I look forward to further updates. And as for you Brian, we can speak privately. I would love to hear your ideas. You can contact me at cjgibson09@yahoo.com. Your doing a fine job Kallus, and I look forward to multiplayer and further additions.

        What if its something he needs before multiplayer? Like some sort of skills or Quest options, I really love the exitement around this!

    Update works nicely. Love the look of the tools.
    I’ve been building on water. If you put something on water and then remove it, it leaves a hole in the water which looks stupid as the surrounding water flows in to the hole. Anyway to fix that so that in the ocean or middle of puddle or lake the removed block would be replaced again with waterblock? It would look more natural. Dont know what you are doing with the new platform, maybe it is fixed on that one though :D
