Bugs, bugs

1.23, like most earlier releases will have a fair share of bugfixes. A large number of bugs big and small found in 1.22 are fixed. Here’s the list:

  • Player could place a block over himself causing death when in confined spaces – fixed
  • Player’s hand flickers while in range of artificial lighting and terrain blocks are changing nearby – fixed
  • Flickering bugs with pickable items, projectiles and sign texts – fixed
  • Dangerous animals were permanently losing interest in player after some time – fixed
  • Dawn and dusk times were not set correctly when using time of day button – fixed
  • Potential race condition when accessing device storage – fixed
  • Cave creatures were spawning on artificial blocks which caused them to spawn e.g. inside buildings – fixed
  • Framerate limiter was unnecessarily taking CPU time – fixed
  • Coal blocks can burn out if placed next to a chunk boundary – not fixed, waiting for 32bit blocks

Of course, with the new features also come new bugs. So all I really hope for is to maintain the status quo in 1.23 :-)

Apart from other features mentioned in earlier posts, 1.23 will have more than 10 new electric devices and a new mechanic that should make electricity even more powerful. I will make a video soon that shows what it’s all about. All you’ve seen so far is a motion detector.

          Dietrich morey you are the one who took my idea. I gave kaalus the idea way before you and everybody else. ya’ll are just copying my idea and taking it for yourself aka (c) or Plagerism. i would know that i was the first one because Daverave commented on mine saying it was a good idea to do a password instead of the deleting and reinstalling.

    10th!
    And we need some rope to tie our animals and boats with. Crafted like this:

    Wool*
    Wool*
    Wool*

    * we also need the alpaca back in the game for wool.

    Put rope in hand.
    Tap animal/boat.
    Tug animal/boat to the nearest fence.
    Tap the fence.
    Your animal/boat is now tied to the fence and cannot move ANYWHERE.

    To untie the rope just mine it. It will disappear and reappear in you inventory.
    You animal is also untied. It can move freely.
    There is a 0.5% chance your animal/boat can break free.
    There is a 0.9 % chance your animal is claustrophobic, this increases the chances off it getting free and it runs away immediately after being united.

    P.S since boats are registerd as animals (they burn, are ride able, and don’t spread fire like animals) there might be a bug in the game were your boat is claustrophobic. Make sure to try and fix that XD.

    You cam also make a bed in the game out of alpaca wool. If you sleep in a bed you can go 4 days (instead of the normal 2) without sleeping. Very helpful to those people who’s mines are a long way from home.

    Crafted like this

    Wool wool wool
    Planks planks

      Oh my gosh guys! I just found a super creepy map called slender 8 pages. You spawn in the forest and you must look for pages. I went in a dark house and looked around for pages. The woods were very dark. Good job to whoever made it. Look for slender 8 pages. :)

      I can’t. Not enough bits. Must wait until switch to 32 bit blocks. But there’s some cool stuff, potentially useful for discos coming in 1.23 :-)

    Oh….that means that transformed wolves chase you until they get killed?

    • Posted September 25, 2013 at 01:49 | Permalink | Reply

      No, they will back down eventually, but once you get too close again, they will restart the chase. In 1.22 they are sometimes put into a benign state where they will not react to you at all.

    Will it be possible to use trap doors on windows like shutters with the new electronics? Always thought it would be cool if you could open and close them from inside or use them with the daylight detector so they all shut at night.

    • Posted September 25, 2013 at 02:35 | Permalink | Reply

      you could sort of do that except w/out the glass…..you need an XOR gate, a NOT gate, a Photodiode, and wire and if you play around with and set it up correctly you will have automatic shutters

    Hey kaalus do you think we can be totally original with the generated structures like instead of a village it could be a worn out house with a few remains in chests

    I can’t wait for motion detectors. I’ll connect them in a thin hall to spiked planks and then throw a price of meat so all the wolves run into the trap

    Please tell me the “animals can jump over fences” bug is fixed. I see no point in creating a sadle, finding a horse, corraling the horse only to have the dumb thing run off come night time.

    Oh, and please make glass slabs. That way I can make a terrace around my house and it doesn’t have to be all big blocks.

      Yea I had a farm where I put all the female cows in one pen and the bulls in another but the bulls kept escaping and trampling my crops (the farm and the pen shared the same part of a fence)

      I 2nd Henry Podilla’s comment! I was all excited about the horses but now I hardly utilize them because it is frustrating when you go to the trouble to have them and they get through the fence. I even had this one house that was on stilts 3 blocks high. I had a glass floor and fences going from the ground up to the bottom of the house around the parimeter. There was no way over the fence and no way for lightning to get it. Worked good for several nights and then out of nowhere one morning I wake up and the horse had wound up on the outside of the fence and there were two wolves inside. Explain that one?!?!?!

    • Posted September 26, 2013 at 14:45 | Permalink | Reply

      You might want to re-check wolves and doors too. I’ve had a couple of cases where a wolf has opened a door and attacked me in my house.

      And, of course, there’s the “holding a rake makes things untouchable”issue too.

    Make leads so we can tie our animals and boats. I’m tired of my horses running off. Minecarts so we can get around faster and make roller-coasters (yay!) NPCs (cause I’m tired of using modified Christmas trees). Profiles for SurvivalCraft (so we know who makes the content worlds, cause I’m tired of guessing). Multiplayer servers with chat and usernames above our heads (HINT HINT).

    Hey guys! I just uploaded another elevator tutorial world to community content if anyone is interested. It features two different styles of elevators (one of which I have personally made in challenging mode) broken down into step by step segments so that each step can easily be studied and duplicated in your own worlds. They each have an up and a down to them, although the simpler of the two kinda cheats on the downside :-D .(its a surprise :-D).

    I tried my best to make it a quality tutorial, so if you download it and like it don’t forget to give it a good rating after the new update comes out so that it will stay close to the top for others to use.

    Thanks! :-)

    Kaalus, WE NEED a tool for major quarrying projects. Anyone who is a serious builder in creative mode knows how soul destroying it is using the limited destruction that the TNT barrels offer right now. I’ve only just started playing again after 4 months because I couldn’t bare how slow it is to remove vast quantitys of terrain.

    Plaese make a tool to help us builders, Bigger explosives or what ever u think is best. But please add it in next update. I want to keep playing but as things stand building on my scale is to work intensive.

    Thx if you read this and address it ;D

    Okay, when I read about the stubborn horses “improvement”, I have to tell you that I was pretty annoyed; for me, they’re not especially faster considering that they handle a little bit poorly The one time I DID use a horse, I ended up dying because I mounted him in a cave and got crushed to death due to glitching. So…making horses even more ignorable really wasn’t something I could say that I cared about.

    More electronics options, however? A total of TEN new electronics options? That’s awesome! Can’t wait to see what some of the creative mode people do with this stuff.
