To Summon A Steed

Today I added a new interesting game mechanic. I thought I won’t have time for that, but Apple is still reviewing 1.20, so I do (I guess Apple are not really doing anything, 1.20 is just sitting in the queue).

Here’s a video of this new little shiny thing:

http://youtu.be/zh5S-u7qAtY

I think it will come quite handy and was easy to do.

Leaving the game aside, I am looking for some advice from the audiophiles among you.

I want to buy a decent pair of computer speakers. To stand next to my desktop. I used to have Creative T2900s (http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Inspire-T2900-Speaker-System/dp/B0000AZJZB), but they’re rubbish for listening to music. The satellites have tiny speakers (about 2 inches), and the subwoofer, which is about 4.5 inches, does not provide any middle tones. I guess because the circuitry cuts it off around 200Hz. In short, they sound horrible, completely without a middle.

This time I wanted something without a subwoofer. I definitely didn’t want rumbling bass – this is good for watching movies or playing Battlefield, but for music it’s useless.

I’m not an expert on the subject, so I just bought a pair of these: http://www.samsontech.com/samson/products/studio-monitors/studio-gt/studiogt/

And guess what, I am extremely disappointed. They may be sounding “true” and have “flat response” blah blah blah, but they’re absolutely no fun to listen to.

I don’t want rumbling, booming bass, but it doesn’t mean I don’t want any bass. And there isn’t any. To me, these Samsons sound like a speaker from a small, old FM radio. I actually compared them to Creative T2900 satellites (no subwoofer), and they sound pretty much the same – crap. Despite allegedly having 4.25 inch woofer vs 2 inch in the Creatives. I don’t think they produce any audible tones below 150Hz.

So here’s my question: does anyone know about good 2.0 speakers (no subwoofer), active (i.e. with amp built in) that have decent bass? Also, they cannot be too big, up to about 200mm wide and 350mm high, otherwise they won’t fit where I want to place them.

The Samsons will be going back soon.

    The review at http://www.redsharknews.com/audio/item/433-the-pro-audio-monitors-disguised-as-computer-speakers piqued my interest.

      I’ve also had some Altec Lansing 2.0 speakers (discontinued) that I was happy with, but their web site doesn’t seem to have any useful information about the dynamic range, etc.

        I had a look at them, but they only have 3 inch woofers. I have a feeling they would not have much bass either…

        Hey Kaalus, just buy 2 iHome portable speakers. I have one and I love it. I use it all the time. Just make sure the computer has an equalizer. This little speaker has accually 2 speakers inside. The top one has all trebal and everything else. But the bottom speaker is a bass speaker. The bass speaker can make it bounce across the table if the bass in the song is high. But an equalizer can easily fix your problems.
        p.s. this speaker can get really loud. My Samsung Galaxy tab 2 can’t even get it to sound scratchy or fuzzy.

      I also forgot to ask if whistles are exclusive to saddled horses, or if they are used for other animals as well? Might be interesting too to alert bears using one. Maybe an instrument to scare off animals can be made as well, maybe a horn to scare cows away from you, giving us the ability to herd them better for ranches.

      I’m guessing that only horses with a saddle can be called. Otherwise you would have random horses show up at your door while you try to coral your domestic ones. Also, I hope that cows follow you when they hear the whistle for easier domestication:)

I’ve managed to make an elevator with trapdoors and delay gates that works just as well as the minecraft version (Though it’s quite big now, it should be possible to make it smaller with wire-block element:)

    Kaalus, does the whistle work when you’re far away or just close to an animal.

    • Posted April 10, 2013 at 14:17 | Permalink | Reply

      Yes, quite far. Not all horses respond to it, when a horse sees that another horse is nearer and is already running towards the whistle, it will ignore it. Just wanting to make it look more natural, where horses have their own mind and don’t always instantly listen to the orders.

    Not to be picky, but do you think you could change the “hya” sound? It sounds unnatural when speeding up and slowing down quickly. Possibly even have a different sound for slowing down, more like a “woah”? Otherwise i suggest having more of the clicking sound you make with your mouth like “tik tik”.

    I think another option would be cool to have when clothing comes is spurrs. They would make your horse go a very fast speed for a short period of time. They ciuld only be used once or twice before the horse starts getting hurt/disobedient until it “resets” like with the scared cows you showed us.

    Keep it up Kaalus! :)

That way you don’t have to swap speakers around :-) back to the game lol. could you add another whistle so we can make cows follows us to heard them.

    throw the object into the hole, but it does not activate the plate.

    can u fix this somehow? maybe u can make bigger pressure plate? or some object collision tweak?

      I think Kaalus is going to fix a lot of bugs at once with this update including terrain generation bugs, I once came into what I thought was a small cave I had already explored and found a floating torch! No pictures though:(

    Cool all we need is gates for fences so we can store or herd our horses, and the lack of ability for a horse to clear a fence unless ridden on.

    Or the ability to tie a horse to a fence

    Or loyalty of a horse to stay in one place after ridden

    As far as speakers go recording speakers from Musicians Friend are the best. You can also go to guitar center and listen to them. You also might not have a good sound card. 24 bit is recommended and can make a huge difference in sound quality.

    16 bit is CD quality, 24 bit is studio quality the higher the bit rate the louder a speaker can be without white noise. Its similar to the pixels in an image except one wave is drawn with 16 to 24 bits- because a wave has to be smooth the jagged edges are replaced with white noise thus the higher resolution the less noise their is.

    Kaalus, can you plz add taming wolfs and coyotes. You tame them by giving them bones which can be found in caves, and if you tame a wolf it will protect you. P.S can you make wolfs and other danjerous creatures attack cows,bulls and birds? Thanks!

I already have stuff ready for the update like an aquarium and horse stalls. Like reading your posts also. Real good stuff there. Fish was a great idea. More fish next update!!! Like bass or BIG sharks like great whites that eat u whole. Also make small boats to ride in. And u should make wind and waves happen. Or huge storms with wind and hail. Like the snow ball exept harder and smaller. You soulf make decorative beds and furniture. I don’t think u really get much freedom of that. You should also add flash floods if you live by the ocean. Or maybe hi tides and low tides

    These ideas are for creative mode only. But I would like to see machinery such as graders, bulldozers, dump trucks, excavators so that you could shape the land to exactly the way you want it Mich easier then by hand. The dozer would push 4 blocks wide and would everyone once in awhile a block would roll over to the side. The grader would grade 4 blocks wide so that you could grade let’s say a mountain side to easily put stairsfor a walkway. The dump truck would of course haul rock or dirt or whatever you dig out with the excavator. And the dump truck would hold 50 blocks. The excavator could dig 2 blocks wide and deep and be able to reach down 10 blocks.

    polk audio alway work well. you do need a sub. the right power is actually when it is equal to all yoir other speakers combined. 100 wats a channel 7 channels needs 700watt sub to operare “ideally”. the boomining iss usually die to underpowered subs distorting as they try to keep up with the other speakers, good sibs you should feel, but audiably they should be transparent, they should blend with the surround/monitor speakers. of , my own experience bose lacks lower modrange, most speakers are not trie in thwir reproduction, even the expensive ones. energy also was a good cosumer level speaker too. good speakers sound real and are unimpressive except for their realism. they don’t thump, and don’t create ultra sharp highs, they just sound real. polks are what I went for in my price range. my sub is still underpowered so I am stuck with the boom/rumbling. on subs velodyne loooks good but haven’t heard them yet, and they are expensive. smaller speakers habe tighter base but often have less ability to cover deeper and more substantial base. though some are indeed able to do both.

    Okay, I’ve got some complaints, suggestions, and comments on frequently asked suggestions I’d like to share. Okay, complaint no. 1: I really don’t like having werewolves in the game, not only is it unrealistic, but I, being a long-time fan and supporter of grey wolves find it quite unfair, they already have a bad enough rap, you adding werewolves only makes things worse and I’m not happy with it at all! Complaint no. 2: I don’t see the point of making US wait for the update just because apple is taking forever! Complaint no. 3: it looks like you’ve already fixed the coal block and fence bugs, good job! Moving to suggestions. Suggestion no. 1: could you make the coyotes more vicious than the wolves? Where I live, coyote attacks are quite frequent. Wolves, not so. Suggestion no. 2: can you make the animals sleep? You know, cattle at night, boar at night, coyotes in the day, wolves the middle of the day and night, horses and camels at night, ect. ect. Suggestion no. 3: I think there should be seasons like winter and spring. Suggestion no. 4: how about adding deer, bighorn sheep, and other game animals to make hunting more fun. Now for my comments. Comment no. 1: monsters and magic. I really think that idea is dumb, this is a survival game, not a role play game. Plus it’s just not realistic. Comment no. 2: clothes. I think that, now with leather in the game, we should be able to make clothes, it’s not unrealistic or anything. I find it to be a great idea! Comment no. 3: pets. Yes! I’d love to be able to get dogs and cats, they could also help hunt! Comment no. 4: villagers and multi-player. While I do like the idea, you are supposed to be on a deserted island, so it wouldn’t fit in. Comment no. 5: animal breeding/interaction. Good idea, it’d make the game even better, just along as it’s not too detailed. :) These are my ideas to make survivalcraft an even more amazing game.

    P.S. survivalcraft is my fave game

    I just completely re-did my stables. There are four stables in it, one fore each horse, two on each level. There is an opening in the lower ones where they can walk into a fenced field and stairs down for the ones in the second story. Both openings should keep animals out (plus the fences in the field) and my horses when i want them to be in. Now just for the actual horses! :D

        How about making the railroad be a road like a highway but make it narrow like the railroad and i have an idea but I don’t know if it’s sounds good. Make an option where you can activate flooding and when you activate it. Say you’re in a room when water goes in the room and the room is completely sealed. The water will start rising until it reaches where the water came from.

    next update please add clothes which you can craft from animal skins. For this It could use a new block: wardrobe in which you keep and craft your clothes. But do so with a single type of block you can do 2 – 3 different furniture. setting 2 blocks vertically one over the other – you have a large wardrobe. 1 block – a small cabinet. 2 blocks horizontally – drawers or something like that :)

    Instead of a boat you could add a kayak that has different levels of durability,like weapons/tools. And minecarts could be replaced by sledges. And horses could be tied to the sledge as a source of power. Even better, you could add dogs in the next update (after 1.21) and you could tie the dogs to the sledge and make the dogs have this command to pull the sledge. Sledges could also store four birds, two wolves/coyotes, a bear, a cow or a bull at one time. For the kayaks you would also need to craft paddles, making them harder to obtain.

    I think wagons would go well with the horses but not to ride just to hold supplies and such you would ride the horse

    Suggestions:
    No. 1. Add chests for the horses
    No. 2 Ability to make blankets out of leather
    No. 3. Halters to lead the horses around
    No. 4. Bridles to control the horses better
    No. 5. A girl character for girls like me.
    (These are only suggestions for 1.22)

    I cant wait for the new update. When a horse falls from a high point with you on it, what would happen

      i think the horse will get hurt or die and you will survive but if you fall down a really long one i think you and the horse will die.

    Kaalus, you should get a Sony MINI HI-FI Component SYSTEM MHC-EC909iP. I have one at home and you have the option to turn off SUBWOOFER with a click of a button, and the speakers are great for Music and Gaming

    An advice would be to
    1.) change the sound of the “hyaaaaah.
    2.) Turn the density down on horses a bit. that way its more challanging for the player to find and keep a horse :D

    kaalus I have this problem where I try to download a world but it says it cannot download world as zip file or something like that. Or it will say an unexpected error has occurred. So now I can’t download texture packs or wold files. What is wrong with it? If you know please fix it asap because it is getting really frustrating. :-(

    Please could you maybe add cats and dogs and maybe cars. And could you add a leash that will make things like horses and wolves/dogs follow you. And something that will allow people to tie horses to things e.g trees fences.
    Thanks so much I love this game please try to include my stuff.

    Thanks
