Is 1.21.2 OK?

Yesterday night I pushed out 1.21.2. Slept until noon today :-)

Here’s the list of changes:

  • Fixed electric lamps falling off blocks when switched on or off at a distance
  • Fixed electric lamps switching off for no reason when moving around them
  • Fixed very long electric lines stopping working when moving around them
  • Fixed seizing up of  complex electric circuits when going away and coming back
  • Fixed when standing still on top of a moving creature, player’s legs move
  • Added help on how to mount the horse
  • Fixed horse/player death on dismount – the fix should greatly reduce probability of this happening. Do not mount/dismount in confined spaces to reduce it still further

If there are no new serious issues with this release I intend to push it out to Kindle and Windows Phone. Please play it.

I am especially interested in you testing the electric circuits – I was forced to make some fairly fundamental changes there, and it’s never safe so late in the release. I might have inadvertently broken something. I would be very grateful if you could build some electric devices and see if there are no stupid things happening.

    Bug report: Kaalus, please replye. I think random generator not work correctly! because if I sign wire to clock input, clock generator give “1″ in out. If I sign switch and turn it on or off random generator give “1″ in both case. I think if I sign wire to clock input, random generator must give “0″ signal out, but it give “1″. Is this wrong?

    Hi Kaalus,

    Game looks great! The fact that there are vis in the water and camels/horses to ride on is awesome.
    But I keep having problens with appering and disapperung animals. When I’m explorung a cave and there’s a bear….I kill it. I block the cave so no animals can get in and the rest of the cave is empty. When I mine the cave and a few (in the game) days later I come up …the bear is back! How’s that possible? Even so….I made a fence for my cows. 3 blocks high….I’ve locked 5 cows in there. The next morning. There are only 3 cows left and a bull has joint!?!?! Turns out that when a animal is standing next to a block (fence, stonewall…) and it turns into that block….it can get out. Is this a bug!

      As I understand, bears in caves spawn if the light level is low enough. They aren’t come from the outside, they just spawn randomly, depending on light level.

    Hey kaalus i tested this on my map (which u have) and the “magic” spot is still here.
    but now when you go over this spot , the lamps will flash/blink(?) only once, instead of going off
    i can eliminate this “flash/blink” by connecting lamps independent to each other.

    Overall im very happy, and this “blink” is small issue with i can live, and fix it by myself at some point :)

    i tested also my 100led animated display, and i im very happy because random diodes dont go off anymore! works perfect now! thank u.
    also tested couple more circuits and everything seems to work like it should, so i think u didnt broke anything :)

    “Fixed electric lamps falling off blocks when switched on or off at a distance”

    during tests “lamps falling off blocks” did not happend here yet so let say its fixed :D

    great update kaalus thank u

    i can record this blinking lights if u want

    sorry for my english

    p.s. what about this shadow bug? im just curious, hope u leave it for later :)

    • Posted April 19, 2013 at 15:53 | Permalink | Reply

      The blink is OK, it’s caused by the circuit rebuilding itself as its end get chopped off at the far end of view. To avoid it don’t make circuits which are longer than the view distance.

    Hey I just wanted to suggest when you submit survivalcraft to iOS again to have a launch sale to get a good base of players on that platform from the beginning so word of mouth can be more effective. Also I think you should rethink how the demo is designed, I see from the reviews that the time limit pisses off a lot of people. I think instead you should have an infinite demo with limited features. Like make only creative or challenging mode available and take away dropbox, sd card and community content integration. It just feels like it would give you higher ratings on your demo and get you more purchases. Just throwing ideas out there.

    • foodwrap
      Posted April 19, 2013 at 16:34 | Permalink | Reply

      That’s what I was thinking, some sort of launch sale for a week or so, to get peoples attention. The demo doesn’t have a time limit on Google Play, so it should be good as is.

      • Duxk
        Posted April 19, 2013 at 16:47 | Permalink | Reply

        But every second review for the google play demo is bitching about a time limit.

        • foodwrap
          Posted April 19, 2013 at 16:49 | Permalink

          Wait, there is a time limit? Nevermind, I guess there needs to be one on iOS. The sale is still a good idea though. :)

        • Patchyclaw
          Posted April 19, 2013 at 17:59 | Permalink

          noone liked the time limit on the kindle either, but think of it in the sales perspective, if you only get 15 minutes per world you make, but get all the features except sleeping, the point of the demo is to just give you enough to know if it’s good, but not enough to just play on it’s own, that way you’ll want to buy the full game.

    I think its great that you fixed the update. That being said, i do have one concern.

    Are we, the users of the Amazon store and Windows Phone marketplace, still your alpha testers?

    I only ask because I believe that we have lost the privilege of having an effect in your bug fixes. We wait while the Android users scan your game for bugs so that we can be void of any problems. I understand your want for a clean update but we no longer have as much of an effect on the formation on your game as we once did. When i bought your game, i didnt care that it was my chance to try out an infinite blocky world due to my missing out on Minecraft, i wanted to be part of the creation of something. I saw that this was in alpha, you have stated so many times that this in alpha and you have been so kind as to allow us to play your game before it enters beta but that was on the premise that we would be helping you quash bugs. If you would just release the update for everyone at once, we can get back into the groove of helping test out bugs.

    I would go so far as to suggest that the Android version only be released after the Amazon and Windows Phone version, or just one, has arrived. I know, however, that such an action would cause backlash from the Android users.

    So what do you say, won’t you at least release the update for everyone at once and let us once again help test your creation.
    I will also forward this message to Kaalus’ email to get the word out. If you are a user of the Amazon store or Windows Phone marketplace and agree, please speak up. Your voice is so powerful if you just use it.

    • Posted April 19, 2013 at 18:36 | Permalink | Reply

      I can’t release for everyone at once because Amazon and Microsoft need to pass a week-long certification process before they even appear in the marketplaces.

        Seems to me that each update is getting more complex, as kaalus’s skills with coding are getting better and better, but each update has more and more bugs…

        If every update was pushed for windows phone and amazon first, it would possibly ruin survivalcraft for a few weeks, until all major and minor bugs are fixed, instead of keeping the stable older version for a bit longer..
        Although we may not mind getting buggy updates, reporting bugs/ testing, most players (especially newer players) won’t want this (and it could have a negative effect on ratings)

        And yes, I was around when 1.13 was around, just for windows phone 7.5

    Kaalus, SR latches (both sync and asynch) are cleared (reset) if you leave visual range. If this is working as designed, never mind. It does make them practically useless, though (outside a confined area).
