1.18 Submitted

1.18 was submitted to Microsoft yesterday evening.

I am now testing the Android version, I want to release it in time for Halloween. It will certainly happen on Android, but I am not sure about Windows Phone. It’s all in Microsoft’s hands now. Unfortunately I have been creeping features in for too long to be sure of hitting October 31. But there still is a chance. It went in yesterday, so they have 4 days.

Here’s the list of changes in 1.18:

  • Made ingots use 3D models
  • Spears stick into wood and other soft blocks
  • Rainfall added
  • Snowfall added
  • Thunderstorms added
  • Fixed Large Dry Bush not disappearing when support was removed
  • Snow deposits on empty spaces during snowfall
  • Water freezes into ice in cold areas
  • Ice thaws into water in warm areas
  • Made world slightly brighter at night and during the day
  • Added pumpkins
  • Added Jack O’Lanterns
  • Small terrain generator optimization
  • Added werewolves
  • Made wolves turn to werewolves during full moon/new moon
  • Caves under sea generate deeper
  • Fixed a bug with animals spawning underground
  • Fixed chase AI behavior

    A lot of eye candy in this update, e.g. 3D models and weather… Maybe update the screenshots in windows marketplace?

    You know, they say we should allow them 5 working days to test the application and Saturday isn’t falling in this range.
    My game was tested in 3 days once so maybe your will be this lucky too.
    The update seems to be a nice one. :)

    Pretty cool number one on your list should be fixing water physics so you dont get pushed out of a waterfall.

      Don’t worry, it may seem bar now but when you are standing there, in the middle of the snowfall, watching as each flake slowly hovers in front of you, it will all be worth it.

    i know its too late for the Halloween update now but I thought it would be cool if you added dead trees. Just a reskin of the existing tree model

      Very unlikely if you build lightening rods… Tbh, they should be coming in this update, but kaalus never mentioned them in this post :S

          A few pages back Kaalus put this in when talking about thunderstorms:- “Be afraid o ye with wooden roofs!

          When I get to electic circuits I’ll probably add lightning rods :-)”
          so not sure how it’s gonna pan out for any of those with wooden structures?

      Kallus tries be on the realistic side, the werewolves idea is more of a Halloween exception

    I’m very glad that Kaalus added werewolves! Imaginary creatures will add drive to the game! Really miss the zombie knocks at the door, and a mysterious sounds in the caves. (Sorry for my bad English)

    Great update. Your game is much better than minecraft pe :)

    But minecraft gots skelets. Survivalcraft got only close combat mobs. So how about tribes?
    Tribal with long range spear or throwing rocks with string is cool idea.
    And how about 2 tribes? 1 agressive and 2 friendly (help hunt down animals and they are in war with 1 tribe. Also in creative mode u may put some dialog options to make storyline to adventure maps).
