Two changes contd.

Ok, I now understand that you’re using the respawn system to make checkpoints in your adventures. So, I will make it an option whether you want to allow or disallow respawn in your adventure maps. Just another setting in world options:

RespawnOption

I also fixed the weapons, so that you can no longer use them to dig stuff up in Adventure. Only proper tools can be used.

For those who are worried about these changes – they are only for Adventure mode. Challenging, Cruel, Harmless and Creative are all unaffected. These changes make it easier to create good adventure maps, now that we have proper content sharing.

Does the sharing work by the way? The server has been averaging between one to two requests per second from you over the last 24 hours, despite lots of client caching in the game. This is pretty respectable for a start.

    Yes the sharing works great I would love to see a possible rating system for the community to vote on content because there is no way to really tell whats hot and whats not and also I wanted to ask if you could implement shaders as add ons for smooth textures on high end devices. I know alot of phones cant handle that kind of stuff but alot of tablets can and tablets are the future I also think that if you make them you should sell it as dlc or paid addons separately but overall the sharing works great keep up the awesome work! !

      +1 for the rating system, perhaps with best rated moving to the top, otherwise it’s going to get pretty crowded pretty quickly. And a separate tab for textures… #makingworkforkaalus :)

    I was also looking at something that I dont know if it matters to most people but there are some that like being Legitimate about playing the game and right now as it stands you can switch in between creative and challenging modes.being someone who enjoys playing these type of games legit I would like to see that mode not switchable to creative just to see what people can actually do in challenging besides if i can build a mansion on creative then go to survival and say i did it on there that kind of defeats the purpose of it being a challenge.and please consider freeing up the look while you mine in split touch

      It will be impossible to restrict switching game modes. All you have to do is upload the world, then edit the XML file to the game mode you want.

      You have cruel mode for that. You can’t switch out of it. Of course nosyrbllewe is right, there’s no way of stopping people hacking the world files and doing what they want.

        Does cruel mode actually delete the world from the device or is it like Minecraft hardcore where it gets taken off the list but the world is still there? It would really be bad if it was the latter because most people playing this on wp7/8 cant access isolated storage and a huge number of android users (and pretty much every android user I know that plays your game) also don’t know how to access the storage, despite the possibility being there.

          It doesn’t delete it. It just locks it.

    I have noticed an error 500 message sometimes when i try to check out the community share page. Most of the time i have no problem and can upload/download with no problems, other times i get the error 500 message and cant access the community share page at all. Other users in the forum have also posted about this issue. Im also using wifi so i don’t think its an issue with my iternet.

    One issue (for modded Kindle Fire users) is that the Fire doesn’t have an actual sd card, which the game asks to use, so we have to use Dropbox. Any way to set it to ‘Internal Storage would be greatly appreciated.
