On Painted Wood

I see that a lot of you want me to allow painting of not just full blocks, but also stairs, slabs, and additionally be able to paint blocks in different colors on different sides.

ColoredPlanks

In short, I would love to do it! I would have done it long ago, had it been possible. Unfortunately, it’s not with the current data layout. To explain further I need to get slightly more technical, please forgive me.

There are exactly 4 bits of extra information associated with each block in the terrain. It means each blocks can have up to 16 “variants”. As you can guess, painted planks use all 4 bits to specify “color variant” of the planks, that’s why they can have 16 different colors.

In stairs, these bits are used for a different purpose: to determine how the stairs are rotated and whether they are upside down or not.  Similarly in slabs (although there is no rotation).

There just isn’t enough bits to make stairs or slabs paintable, because these bits are already used for something else. The same reasoning applies to painting planks different colors on different sides. There are 6 sides, so we would need 6 * 4 = 24 bits to encode 6 sides (and chose from 16 different colors on each).

As any programmer worth his salt will tell you, some clever encoding schemes can be used (and I do a lot of these with the electrics), but they are not magic and won’t turn 4 bits into 24.

The only way we can have proper painting (or some approximation of it) is when I increase the number of bits per block. This can be done, but it heavily increases the memory usage of the game, and may have grave consequences for low memory devices (e.g. Lumia 610 or iPod 4)

Even if I did increase it, painting all sides in 16 different colors is utopia, 24 bits per blocks is just too much. At most we could have about 18 bits available (which is still a massive jump from 4). This is enough for 6 sides painted in a choice of 8 different colors. Personally, I don’t think it’s a good solution – although it allows you to paint all sides separately, it restricts you to use just 8 different colors, which, in some sense, is worse than what we have now. And it still does not solve painting stairs or slabs.

Most likely, If I do increase the number of bits, some other encoding scheme will need to be used that allows you to paint a lot of different things, and some limited form of painting different sides.

It’s all restricted by memory though. If Apple put full 512MB on the iPod 4 back in 2010 and if Microsoft did not do the crazy thing of suddenly releasing “low spec” devices like Lumia 610 with only 256MB of memory…

    You should add ropes kaalus.That way we can catch horses and link them to fences so that they cant escape.Because catching an horse in real life isnt easy.But in the game you just go next to a horse and put a saddle on it.İts not realistic.

    Kaalus, here may be a solution to your problem: by normally painting the stairs or slabs, they then change into the new block with the same position but new texture. So by doing that it changes it to a brand new block with a different texture but is still 4 bits

    • Posted April 22, 2013 at 17:01 | Permalink | Reply

      That just moves to issue to a different place, instead of using “variant” bits we would be using block id bits. These are in short supply as well.

Also can you add mine carts that could get pulled by horses because it’s annoying if you find a good mine with lots of things in it and you don’t have any room left in your inventory so you have to walk or ride all the way home which is annoying. Please add mine carts and wagons. Plz

      We have iron… Unless you intend to make a battletank, iron is the realistic material for metal armor. That, and leather, and maybe a leather/iron combo (scale armor, brigandine) or a wood/metal combination (like Japanese armor).

    I wonder if you can put sc on xbox. It’s alright with me if the sc is the same as on phone and stuff so the worlds are compatible. It would be much easier for me to do it on xbox. On mc xbox I have made the most epic creations that I just don’t have enough patience for on sc mobile, and I have alot of patience. If you were to do this, the only difference that I would absolutely need would be a faster way to build since it’s a controller. In mc xbox you can hold the build button and move or fly up instead of pressing for every block. And if people would want more features since xbox has more capabilities than mobile, you could create two different world versions. The xbox version where there is all the other features that mobile can’t handle but xbox can. And if you want to make world that mobile players can get on, you need to build in mobile mode on xbox.

        Due to lightning my structures typically have to be capped with stone so I would prefer to be able to paint stone. Or if there was a dedicated lightning rod item. It’s a minor thing that we don’t “need” but it’d help make more pleasing designs. Just like corner steps and fences that connect to buildings.

    Here is a easy solution.
    Remove all colored wood blocks, and replace them with colored covers, that are like torchs.
    They would looks colored pressure plates but be completely opaque.
    this way people could edit them with texture packs to look like whatever (paintings, multi piece maps ECT.)
    This would kill 3 birds with one stone.

    You could do this with 1 bit. If the bit is set then it’s a painted block. Start a query for the block located at x,x,x then apply the color specified in the stored array data. You would need to make an array which contains the coordinates of each “set” block and the color. Yes, it adds overhead but it only is an additional query to an array.

    Or you could let the player mark an area to create a zone and every block placed in that zone would be a designated color.

    Kaalus also you should add an back pack to put on a horse and delete all coloured blocks in creative mode menu also some farming like being able to breed cows and bulls or planting pumpkins, merger amour would be good and textured wallpaper or when you use paint you can put in on one side but your doing a great job keep going ;).

    Some Ideas for the next update.
    1. Beign able to farm cotton. Then you can get fibers from the cotton to make string and clothes and string. You can then use the string to make a crossbow. Also use Iron to make Iron.
    2. Vehicals like cars, trucks, boats, submarines, and others. Also a spaceship to go to the moon.
    3. Making chests from other things like stone and iron because I hate it when I foret that I am holding a match and try to open a chest.
    4. Guns and bullets. There would be lead ore under ground which you can mine to get lead which then can be made into bullets.
    5. More food like bread, carrots, apples, and other vegetables.
    6. More animals including elephants, deer, lions, tigers, dogs, monkeys, and cats.
    7. Islands appearing out in the ocean.
    8. Humans that you can interact with and in creative mode when you spawn them you can program them so that in adventure mode they will attack you, help you, run away from you, and so on.
    Please look into these you can come up with the reciepes. Thanks.

        I definitely agree with the crops. I love having something to do like tend and harvest crops! I already have a tree farm. :) I think it would be good to add apple trees. You could have a leaf block on the Apple tree, and then under it, a medium-sized red dot could pop up. If you harvest it, it could eventually come back! I would like it if we had a farming update in the feature.

    I believe i may have the answer to your issue, i know small amounts of java so that is why i know this is possible. Why not make references to what the activities are. Like you would take the activities in the block’s bits and cut them to a file and make reference to that file and it would have all the blocks activities in one bit. Its just an idea, idk what coding language you are using so idk what the compabilities are to it.

    Guys we should stop asking when is it going to be out on WP, kindle, apple, etc. They’re checking it and as you can see in this blog Kaalus always keep us update about it when he gets some news. Just be patient, if they accept the update, they will simply put it on the store of those different devices, if not Kaalus will inform us. But asking him every 2 posts won’t change anything, he’s not the CEO of those companies, he’s not deciding anything about it!

    That’s why you will NEVER get an answer for those question. And its really annoying for him and other people that try to discuss the subject this post is originally about!

    Maby Kaalus, you should make a list of avaliable stuff you can do and make people vote what they want most.
    For me i would like
    .Beds ( point being im sick of sleeping oon the floor, maby give you a 10% boost of attack, mining, speed for like half a day )
    .Ruby ore and gold ore
    .Cloths and Armor ( For horses and camels as well ) is very wanted
    .Farming ( even if its basic weat, berries, plums )
    . More hostile mods eg Lions, tigers
    Other than this massive list i have now created, i really enjoy your game and i hope it is widely recognised. One last thing, i recommend you to have a look at a game called stranded two for ideas and prehaps no more fantasy creatures i love your realism. I am widly aware that you are very busy and take your time you have done alot for use already. If you read this i would be very gratefull.

    Also I dont get all the updates either.My sister has Survivlcraft.She got it a couple years ago as well as I did.She hyas got like 10 more updates than I have!!She has something called wildboars.And traps.The only thing im looking forward too are the rideble horses.

    One last thing,my cousin has this game and i was om her Kindle Fire yesterday>I clicked on one of her worlds called “my house” (without the “) And then something popped up and it said “sorry!this world is unavalivalible because it has materials from Alpha 1.21.0 .” I hope you could tell me what that means.I also follow you on Facebook and twitter.

Also, im hopeing between this update, and the nxt huge update, u will add multiplayer :). I really wish you would make it to where we can tame animals. Now, this cant be coppying mc because lots of apps, and games have it to where you get a pet…animal. and, there r tons of multiplayer games, mc didnt “invent” animal taming, and multiplayer.
