Community Content Fixed

Community Content issue that prevented WP7 owners from downloading anything hosted on Dropbox is now fixed. I have tested it on my venerable Samsung Omnia. The fix will be out with 1.21, that means soon.

As I’m waiting for Apple to respond, I’m spending lots of time doing cleanup and little tweaks. This increases quality of the game in an important way, and makes it less likely that I will have to release emergency bugfixes later on. So it’s good. I know Apple puts your patience to test :-) Mine as well. The weekend’s over, so maybe they’ll do something now.

Btw. I added a new horse color today. Why have 4 when you can have 5? It’s called palomino.

There’s also more cowboy stuff to come, I’ll show you in the next post.

    Nice one Kaalus :) Btw, I think I speak for alot of your SC fans when I say these mini mews updates are very much appreciated; it makes the anticipation of waiting so much more bearable. Thankyou.

    And seeing as this is probably one of the only times you may ever get to read a comment of mine, may I suggest the idea of adding tribals to the game? Give me something to fend off from the castle. Or even the possibility of being able to craft a small boat or hand glider?

    Just my two cents :)

    I really like the idea of taming horses, but I wonder why you didn’t also choose to add dogs. Archaeology suggests that humans have lived beside and with dogs for longer than we’ve had horses, and for hunting and security, a dog is better than a horse. We should have both!

        A dog will defend against wolves, and can be trained to fetch birds (hunting).

        A horse will spook at it’s own shadow, and trample all over your garden if not tied up.

        Dogs are better.

    Can you add the same method of coloring for granite? or other stone blocks?
    I do not like to build with wood, and the other blocks limits me because lack of different color versions

          If it was a repeating crossbow, we wouldn’t need string. I read that they use twisted animal sinew (tendon) to launch bolts and were first used by the Greeks. Maybe it could be made from leather.

Or as someone else suggested can help hunt or fetch birds. ..etc. Cant wait for the update Your doing way better than minecraft. Maybe you can also add carts or something that can be of the sort an can use tracks for it an place them on so the cart can go on it an just have a lever for forward an reverse. :) :)

    one thing HOW DO YOU PUBLISH WORLDS TO COMMUITY CONTENT

    • Posted April 16, 2013 at 09:08 | Permalink | Reply

      I’m guessing you don’t have Dropbox, so to make an account, go to “Get Content” and select “Private.” Tap the … in the corner and select “Dropbox” and there should be an option to login. Go through that to make an account.

      Once you’ve done that, select the world you want to publish, tap “Modify” and then “Upload” to Dropbox.

      Now go back to “Get Content” and “Private” select the world and “Copy Link.” Go to “Community” select “Publish” and paste the link. Change type to “World” and publish.

    I appreciate you taking the extra time to add more things for us. You could just as easily have sat back and taken a break. Shows you care about the people who play your game :). Can’t wait for the update, I’m sure it’ll be amazing as always.
