I’m back…

…and working on the new animals and mechanics for 1.21. Still some work to do before I can show you anything.

In the meantime, here’s a new, very short video showing the new electric element, a random generator, at work:

http://youtu.be/cC5f-hMJ7iA

The way it works, it generates a random signal on its sole output. It also has a clock input, which (if connected) makes it generate a new random value on the rising edge of the clock signal only, instead of continuously.

Most importantly, the video shows the new super hi-res display technology that is made possible by wire-through-block elements :-)

    I know what im going to build with this! Also if you were to take the random signal and put it through another random generator would that give you three possible randomizations?

      It will just slow down how often the second generator generates a new random value (logic 0 or 1). The second generator will only generate a new value when the first generator goes from 0 to 1.

      Random generator has only the clock input. If you wire another random generator to it, it will make the first one generate a new value when the second one goes from 0 to 1 (rising edge), that is randomly. But the first one is already doing that, so you’ll see little change apart from halving of the generation frequency.

      When lava flows into water it makes basalt. When water flows into lava it makes stone. Ie dig a trough 1×8 blocks put h2o on one side lava on the other. It should yield u stone.

          Yeah, currently working on a solution, nothing simple so far. Best way so far is a water tower 3×3 starting 4 above ground. With 5×5 lava pit with 1 block center farthest away from water supply. Have h2o and lava on opposite sides. You will have to cut,block off, water supply so your lava pit can refill. Hope this helps.

    If you ever get around to adding armor you should make a weight simulation that ,depending on the armor, impedes movement

    And if your making new animals, wouldn’t it cause more memory and battery usage?

    History of Captain Breen. Part 1, the meeting At first everything was fine, I built a house in the mountain, made a full set of diamond things, but I was afraid to go far from home, because I could get lost. But in my mine I found malachite did compass, and I had a sense of adventure. Taking the diamond thing, I went to explore the world. Behind the house, I saw seven bears and decided not to go through nih.Proplyv under a rock, I stupidly walked straight. Passing a mountain biome, a desert with a few oases, I came across a vacant lot with a few cows, and that’s what I was looking for a mountain biome, and then began strangeness. There were a lot of crows they just littered the ground with their eggs and carcasses, I even remembered the Resident Evil 3. I found a lot of strange things for example hanging islands, as if someone wanted to translate the night there, 2×1 tunnels, strange mountains as if they had a home in the rock ledges like portals. Above any hostile mob. Not finding anything interesting I walked on the instructions of the compass. Then it started to rain, many players know that the rain is not good and fog, and lightning. Then suddenly something happened as I write now, I saw it, the other characters in the game, it seems that he was digging, he was almost the default skin, but more weathered, he did not have pieces of clothing, was clearly visible backpack, I knew the story on hirobrine and dubbed him Captain Brin, grabbing the sword, I ran to him, he turned and saw me, and threw a diamond in the air, and I stopped in front of me hit molniya.Zatem he jumped into the fact that digging and disappeared. We know on this island are not alone …..

    I found a bug that is causing me troubles, when I put stairs in bedrock, I can’t walk on them rightly, when I try to walk on them, it gets me stuck for every other stair. And after I have walked the stairs, I can’t jump anymore. Please try to fix that bug because I am making city on bedrock.

      I’ve reproduced the first part (getting stuck on stairs placed on bedrock). That’s another manifestation of the very annoying stair-climbing bug that Kaalus already knows about. I’ve rebuilt all my long stairways with slabs to work around this bug. I look forward to this bug being squashed.

      I can’t reproduce not being able to jump afterwards. I tried it with auto-jump on or off. Either way I can always still jump. Might be device-specific.

      A curious thing I’ve noticed about the stair-climbing bug (in general) is that it doesn’t occur above ground level. I built a long stairway out over the ocean (so I can fly off into the water without injury) and the engine never warps me back or to the side like it does underground. I even tried surrounding the stairway with walls and a ceiling and the climbing was still bug-free. I wonder why it only happens underground.

    Just wondered if you could add
    – sulphur blocks (created with 9 sulphur ores) and make all compresses blocks stackable to 5 (or 8) so it is worth while compessing them in terms of storage.
    – Fried eggs (cooked eggs)
    – some kind of drawable map or notepad
    – Back Pack to carry more
    – TNT drops when block under it is broken so I can dig a whole, put trap door over, put sand on top, light tnt and open trap door… Depth charge
    – Sun dial – to keep track of time
    – Can move sidewards to parallel ladder,

    Ill stop there ;)

      Please do not make ladders behave like the ladders in Minecraft. I despise the ladders in Minecraft.

      1. You should not have to steer to stay on a ladder.

      2. You should not automatically descend if you stop going up.

      I love the ladders in Survivalcraft. They are actually usable (as long as you are careful not to accidentally jump off.

    HELLO Kaalus.
    I think you should actually focus on multiplayer rather than animals or electronics because downloading other players maps are getting a little boring so I just want to share that suggestion with you and I hope you add this to the game really much appreciate it if you would

    I built a minigame that i called POCKET BOARS,its like pocket god,you can do alot of stuff:Kill boars by spikes,burn them,turn on the lights,drop sand/gravel to their death,throw snowballs,throw stone chunks,spawn boars,Turn on the lights,Everything is operated by buttons and hand.

    I will make a video on youtube soon.Sadly,this game is not a separate world,so I wont publish it.However the wiring isnt complex

    Im not sure how plausible this is but the new wire through block elements should have a auto connective feature, to any electric element on any part of the block, sort of like how regular wire does now.

    • Posted February 23, 2013 at 16:45 | Permalink | Reply

      That would defeat the purpose, which is to isolate wires from each other. You can connect wire-through-block to any element on it manually by placing wire on any of the terminals. Otherwise there is no connection (apart from elements placed directly on the terminals).
