Pelagic Creatures

Some say that the ocean is a dull place in Survivalcraft. In 1.22 I am trying to change that. Here’s how:


It’s a big creature, and the first one of the kind. It will kill you in one or two jaw snaps. Because it’s so big, there have been issues with it. The engine does not handle it very well and the movement is not as smooth as I would like to, but I hope to get them resolved.

For the last few days I’ve been tweaking┬ápathfinding. Alas there are still cases where it does not work, or rather where steering fails to follow the path properly. It takes a lot of time to fix that, because when I correct one snag, it makes some other case break. If only phones were as powerful as PCs…

Now for something completely different. Tomorrow finally I am going for a holiday, yay! I will not have access to the internet for about 9 days. Please don’t be alarmed if I don’t post anything during that time.

I will be back :-)

When I am back, I will start on the big new secret feature I wrote about last time. Hopefully, I will have a lot of time during the holiday to think the details through.
