Fishy fishy

I am still unable to post a video about electrics because of slow mobile internet. Shame, because there is so much new stuff one video will probably not suffice. Even batteries got a slight makeover :-)

If you are following me on Twitter, you know that there are two new fish in 1.23. Here they are:

Bass

Meet sea bass and freshwater bass

They are bass, and they are real delicatessen! As 1.23 generally aims to make survival subtly more difficult, sharks and piranhas are no longer edible. Instead, you have to search for bass (or rays, or orcas — if you dare).

Other subtle changes (all announced on Twitter some time ago) is reduction of melee hit range from ridiculous 5 meters to a more sensible 2 meters. The frequency of melee attacks has also been reduced from 2 per second to 1.5 per second. All that makes hand combat more risky without a good weapon.

However, all the above are peanuts compared to rating system, increased visibility range and new electrics.

Not far off now.

Btw. check this review out. It’s by instantidiocy, who was a long time forum admin and contributor. He is also running a giveaway where you can win a free copy of the game.

    RIDABLES:
    Giraffe (special saddle)
    Rhino
    Ostrich (as mentioned before not trying to be pushy or anything)
    Bears
    Bulls (will randomly try to kick you off)

    PAINTABLES:
    Fences
    Horses (will show flowers, hearts,… in that paint color)
    Wire through blocks (except Simi conductor)
    Stairs (of paintable materials)

    CRAFTABLES:
    Giraffe harness:

    Saddle. Nothing. Nothing
    Woodslab Nothing. Nothing
    Saddle. Nothing. Nothing

    It works kinda funny.
    1. Tap giraffe with harness in hand
    2. There will be two platforms, on on top (with wood slab beneath), and one on the actual giraffe
    3. Tap the top platform or bottom saddle
    4. The rest works like normal horse

    Rope. I’ve heard of rope crafted from plant material, so it will save you some time vs. making a new animal and sissors

    Wild rye. Wild Rye. Nothing
    Wild rye. Wild rye. Nothing
    Wild rye. Wild rye. Nothing

    Rope has 2 uses. Boats and animals
    1. Place rope in hand and tap animal/boat
    2. Tug animal/boat to nearest fence post
    3. Tap fence post. The animal/boat is now tied to the fence post and cannot move vary far. On rare occasion, your animal will break free. Boats on even rarer occasion.
    4. There is a 5.5% chance your animal is claustrophobic. If it is, it increases the chances of it breaking free by 30%
    5. To untie animal just “mine” the rope or fence post. This will untie animal or boat. If animal is claustrophobic it will run away immediately.

    Iron boat. Moves faster, can place chest inside, and is more durrible.

    Crafted like boat, but with iron.

      These fish are so nice looking that they break the “blocky” look.. They could belong in a high end fishing game…they birds however need a make over, they have square wings. There is a fine line in blocky games, to make items or characters “blocky” or not. The hero in Minecraft is blocky, Survivalcraft, not so much, much more detailed..Minecraft pumpkin is square, Survivalcraft is round… These rules are broken in Survivalcraft, which is fine, I’d prefer better graphic over a “Blocky” world rule…. Therefore please consider updating the Birds in the Future Kaalus. Their square wings is hard on the eyes. Great work by the way.

        And fishing poles. Gonna add dat to my big graph of ideas.

        • Posted October 10, 2013 at 03:38 | Permalink

          Fishing poles would be awsome! But then you would need worms, hook, bobber, and line. The poles would be made of iron or wood and the string would come from sheep(possible new animal) a bobber could be made of wood. Also ther should be a bigger boat made to go fishing out in the deep. It would run on coal or a plant based fuel such as ethanol but made from rye. The boat would be as big as a charter boat. It would have trolling speed. But for this, there has to be more eatable fish like steelhead and salmon. Please Kaalus, consider adding this it would make tue fame much mor fun and interesting. Also please add multiplayer so we could join up with friends. Great job on the game, I’ve only had the game for about a 1 1/2 years. Great job! Love the new updates!

    I hope we get a reliable projectile weapon now that the melee is more difficult. what about the slingshot idea? iron makes pellets for ammo, but gravel and snowballs work too but weaker. kaalus how about a crystal biome? rare underground biome filled with diamonds malachite and natural marble and such!!

      How about machette has a melee range of 2 but spears have a melee range of 3. This will give us a reason to make them.

    Since the properties for fish is now different, I would hope that perhaps the fishing mechanic is also supplemented. I know people have requested fishing poles, I was always content with a machete or spear, but a Fishing Pole would pertain to this new property

      So will the fresh water bass mingle with the piranhas? If so, this requires to fish from the banks or edge of a body of water to be safe…. Hence a fishing pole I would hope.

  14. Posted October 9, 2013 at 15:20 | Permalink | Reply

    Honestly… I Dislike the new idea of piranha and sharks no longer leaving meat behind when they die. This means that you will stay away from them of course because they will attack you, and NOW you really have ZERO reason to interact with them at all because you can’t get anything when you slay one. BIG risk to cross a body of water and NO reward defending your life from them. Not even some fish meat. A IRON boat must be considered.

    • Posted October 9, 2013 at 16:16 | Permalink | Reply

      I dislike the idea of sharks and piranha giving no rewards too. The best idea is to make the tougher animals give the best rewards because of risk. I feel the same way about lions, why create new animals that give nothing when you slay them. they should give unique items found nowhere else. things you could use to modify weapons or tools, like rhino horn or lion claw/teeth for modified machete or spear. or ostrich egg makes you run faster for a good time frame. who cares about giraffes when they yield nothing that makes them worth existing?

        I agree the harder to kill animals should definaltley drop things… Maybe the lion main could be used for the rope everyone wants for tying up horses and boats. A new long ranged weapon would be nice though and maybe could be used for killing fish from a safe distance as well as dangerous animals.

        Survival harder by not making sharks and piranhas drop meat? Let’s do some math here smart guy… 99.9% of a survival game will be played on land. Here is the animals you can get meat, eggs or milk from on land…

        LAND ANIMALS

        Seagull+egg+meat
        Duck+egg+meat
        Raven+egg+meat
        Ostrich+egg+meat
        Black cow+milk+meat
        Brown cow+milk+meat
        Black bull+meat
        Brown bull+meat
        Wild boar+meat
        Gnu+meat
        Rhino+meat

        NON-EDIBLE creatures

        Bears+leather
        Werewolf+diamond
        Gray wolf
        Coyote
        Horse
        Zebra
        Giraffe
        Lion
        Camel

        WATER ANIMALS

        Brown ray+meat
        Yellow ray+meat
        Piranha+meat
        Shark+meat
        Killer whale+meat

        Hmm… So by taking away meat obtained from water makes survival more difficult huh??? Makes zero sense.. Land has way more abundant forms of meat.

        Take away the meat from a gnu and rhino on LAND, INSTEAD of water creatures….
        By doing this and taking away meat from water creatures you make water MORE lifeless. Your knocking out almost 50% usefulness of the water creatures.

        Who ever played this game and killed a shark and said… Whoa that was awesome! I got nothing from killing that shark! Don’t you think by looking back after update 1.23 is released you will say thank god I can’t get shark or piranha meat anymore?… Simply wrong… It’s going to something quite missed….if there were a game exactly like survival craft BUT the only difference was shark and piranha drops, I guarantee you 100% of people would say yeah I’d prefer the shark and piranha drops OVER NOTHING AT ALL. Think about it…. Your not gaining ANYTHING from this…. Only losing.

    I love all of the changes and additions you’ve been making, Kaalus. Since melee attacks are going to be more dangerous, can we please have some better range attack weapons? It would be really nice to have a bow, to take down bears and wolves from a safe distance.

    • Posted October 9, 2013 at 20:04 | Permalink | Reply

      Ranged weapon? How about a boomerang? You throw it, it hits the animal, and it comes back. No more having to risk your life to go back for a spear when a boomerang comes back to you. Also kaalus, the damage done to the animal should depend on where you hit it.

      The point of these animals that drop nothing (besides giraffes and zebras) is that they are dangerous not that they give you food. They help make survival mode more survival like and the new fish he added give food now.

      • Posted October 10, 2013 at 05:07 | Permalink | Reply

        If you want to beef up survival, sure reduce melee range that’s fine, reduce the hit speed that’s fine also but add more farming, new crops, hanging fruit or animal mating perhaps… But don’t take away 2 ways of procuring meat and and 1 way to get it back…. That’s 2 steps back, I step forward.

          There are two different basses. One that lives in the ocean (which replaces the shark) and one that lives in lakes and ponds (which replaces the piranhas). So its pretty even.

        • Posted October 11, 2013 at 02:15 | Permalink

          Even? Even sucks… Updates are supposed to add not make even… Since Kaalus is adding all these new electronics how about he take away something for everything he adds? That way things are even? Lol makes no sense bro…so he adds one type of fish and negates two others?? Yea bro, dosent makes sense.

      There’s already 5 color of horses and a donkey being released with 1.23, the game doesn’t have seasons, but sure why not, add it..snakes, good idea, no reptiles yet in this game, elephants would be a waste like giraffes, zebras, lions, coyote and soon to be sharks and piranhas. There’s already 4 types of foul. Clothes irrelevant. You can make a toilet or furniture. Certain texture packs have bookshelves already, mine does.

    bass’es look awesome. I do agree about the birds though. they need an update badly. they have really fallen behind the looks of the rest of the game.

    I like the fact that not ALL animals drop food. Food would be too easy to come by. and there IS a reward for killing them. its called not drying when they attack you. that being said…i think they should all have at least a small chance of dropping SOMETHING that is useful (like the warewolves do now). it would give the game more depth.

    Instead of iron boats (rediculous) I wish piranhas and sharks just didn’t agro toward you while in a boat without being provoked. it makes sense if swimming but its too dangerous to go boating now when you look behind and there are 20 fish chasing you. leave the orcas to where they still will attack your boat if you get too close to them. they are rare but dangerous. perfect.

    I like the leads idea. Maybe there is a good technical reason they aren’t already in the game but I sure do think it would be a much needed addition. also a bow would be nice.

    • Posted October 9, 2013 at 23:53 | Permalink | Reply

      Yes a fishing rod, I presume that piranha and fresh water bass will occupy the same body of water.. So for us to get bass we have to go in the man eating piranha water? So when I slay a bass, the piranhas will go for me and my precious fish meat now correct? In this scenario, I kill my bass, piranha will now come after me, so I fight off all the piranhas and try to get out of the water of course and get bit a few times all for what? One or two fish meat? A heavy trade off from the water…a fishing pole is required now I believe, especially for “bass fishing” And on the topic of animal meat. Why does a cow give us “bacon” it should be beef Kaalus, save the bacon for the wild boars.

      • Posted October 10, 2013 at 20:35 | Permalink | Reply

        How do you get piranha meat now? I stand by the shore and attack anything that I can reach. If you stay in Sneak Mode you don’t risk falling in so it’s all good. I don’t understand why killing a couple piranha for a few bass is suddenly impossible.

        • Posted October 10, 2013 at 22:41 | Permalink

          It’s not impossible, never said it was…. the piranha will more than likely will eat or be eating your bass meat before you can get it…or you can fight them off with reduced range and reduced striking, so go ahead and kill off a swarm of piranha to get your one or two bass meat…. Not worth it… Just stay on land and get gnu meat? And rhino meat? Yea that’s realistic compared to obtaining food from the limited water life forms huh… LAND has already a very high number of ways to obtain food…. So why the heck reduce the ways to obtain food from the water….. Makes ZERO sense.

        • Posted October 11, 2013 at 05:13 | Permalink

          What level of math are you using? If you take away sharks (rarely found) and piranha (common) and replace them with salt water bass and fresh water bass – how is that taking away two and adding one?? That’s taking away two and adding two. Sounds like what Kaalus is doing is egmenting the animals into preditor and prey. Preditor animals don’t drop but they do hunt you. Prey animals don’t hunt you but are a food source. This way we don’t have to endanger ourselves to get food. And don’t have to waste time hunting down food only to be killed by it.

          I like the new ballance.

        • Posted October 11, 2013 at 21:56 | Permalink

          What level of math are you using? Because you lose 2 species and gain one. So again, what level of math are you using?

        • Posted October 11, 2013 at 22:10 | Permalink

          …And you said it for yourself…sharks rarely found correct? But then you have Kaalus telling us to go find even MORE rare killer whales to compensate for the loss of shark meat… so Yea, makes ZERO sense. So by REMOVING 2 species of meat and adding ONLY 1 species is two steps back, one step foward. If no one hunted sharks for meat what makes you think people will go hunt a whale?

        • Posted October 12, 2013 at 07:36 | Permalink

          The part I’m missing is how “salt water bass” and “fresh water bass” are one species. The one replaces meat from sharks. The other replaces meat from piranha. I’m missing the species you say is one species. How are you counting?

        • Posted October 12, 2013 at 12:46 | Permalink

          Actually bass could be considered one species since they are basicly just different colored and in different areas

          Also Henry i fail to understand how Math is involved, and ill kindly ask you both to be polite

          Personally ostriches are the way to go, if you didnt know, you can spawn animals with eggs in survival mode, egg farm anyone?

        • Posted October 12, 2013 at 13:11 | Permalink

          Dude if Kaalus were to say, I’m releasing two new animals… You get a black cow and a brown cow… Guess what, doesn’t matter what color or area… It’s still one type of animal… Just a cow… So no piranha meat, that’s 1 and no shark meat, that’s 2.. And add bass that’s 1. So he’s taking away 2 types of meat and adding ONLY 1. Only a bass, color an area does not matter… ONLY 1 SPECIES.

      The best way to get people to look at your blog is to tell us what is on it. A blog is like a magazine article except the readers can leave feedback. Just saying “come look at my blog” gives me no information. And “because no one else has looked at it” is not a reason for me to waste my time. Also, telling everyone that there is no one looking at your blog only reinforces the idea that your blog is not that interesting.

      I like the cow skull idea also… Perhaps when you slay a bull they leave their skull behind therefore you can pick it up as a item. Use it as a decorative item or new mechanic and “crush” it up for bone meal=fertilizer.

    Someone said it earlier, all mobs should drop something. Period. I’m ok with reduced melee ability, but with that said a new combat element should be added where one was removed. Sneeking up on an animal should allow more damage done on first strike, if not insta kill. weapon modding items would be great
    Ostrich egg for increases run speed?
    Rhino hide for armor?
    Lions yield claws for unique weapon?
    Slingshot?

    Hey, Kaalus can you add fishing poles. It would be easier to catch fish. And its a basic survival instinct if your stranded on island. Also add plant life to the bottom of the sea. It feels empty under the see. Maybe add fruit on trees also. Your doing great.

That’s what alot say and its annoying. Kaalus even said it himself on twitter once.

    It seems as if your customers are about evenly divided between being pleased and displeased with this whole “sharks and piranhas lose their drops” controversy. Perhaps, in order to give everyone a little something, a grand compromise could be reached. There are a lot of people wanting for bows and arrows, so lets work that in there as well. Maybe toothy animals (lions, wolves, coyotes, the various bears, sharks, and piranhas) could have a chance of dropping a new “tooth” resource. There could be a 10% of no teeth, 25% chance of 1 tooth, 30% chance of 2 teeth, 25% chance of 3 teeth, and 10% chance of 4 teeth. I think the amount of meat or fur dropped by other various animals upon death already varies in such a way (although perhaps not as elaborately as I’m proposing), so I wouldn’t think that such a feature would be that hard to include. Anyway, those teeth would provide the arrowheads for the crafting of arrows. The rest of the recipe would comprise of a single stick and a single feather (another new resource to be dropped by the birds at a ratio of 1:1, like the bird meat is now) arranged in a linear fashion on the crafting table. Arrows would be created at a 1 tooth, 1 stick, 1 feather : 3 arrow ratio. This would give the player renewed cause to go after dangerous animals, something that those opposing the removal of shark/piranha drops have complained about. Arrows would be consumed by being fired, and will not be retrievable like spears, creating a constant need for more of them.

    A new resource, cord, could be created as well. The origin of cord can vary. You could craft it from a new “sinew” resource to be dropped by animals, or from the tall grass resource that already exists (that can be legitimately obtained in survival mode, right? I don’t have my phone with me at the moment…). Regardless, the raw material in question would be arranged, like the arrow, in a linear fashion on the crafting table to yield cord at a ratio of 3 raw material : 3 cord. A bow could then be crafted from 3 sticks and 3 cords in this fashion:

    (nothing) (stick) (cord)

    (stick) (nothing) (cord)

    (nothing) (stick) (cord)

    Fishing poles, another request, could then be included and crafted like this:

    (nothing) (nothing) (stick)

    (nothing) (stick) (cord)

    (stick) (nothing) (cord)

    A rope item, for tying up animals/boats, which I am ambivalent about (enclosures and gates work just fine for me), could, if you wished to add it, be crafted by simply arranging three cord on a crafting table in a linear fashion to produce 1 rope. The rope could then, as people have suggested, be attached to something by first tapping on a fence post and then on the object in question, and could be re-obtained by mining the fence post. The rope would appear on screen to stretch between the object and the post, and would limit attached animals to an area with an 8-block radius or something like that from the fence post.

    Something that I think would be really interesting to see in the game is a musket, as has been suggested by other people. Crafted like this:

    (nothing) (nothing) (iron)

    (nothing) (iron) (nothing)

    (planks) (iron) (nothing)

    would consume 1 gunpowder and 1 musket ball (crafted at a 1 iron bar : 8 musket balls ratio at the crafting table) from the players inventory. If either resource is absent from the inventory, the musket will not fire. Musket will receive damage from being fired, just as all other tools are worn down through use.

    Bows, and muskets especially, could enjoy a longer range and/or greater degree of accuracy than a thrown spear in order to make them desirable.

    On an unrelated point, I protest the flattening of the worlds in a previous update. Makes everything so…flat…and boring. A topographical control during map creation, similar to the flat map control, would make me elated.

      I forgot to mention; I am guessing that a pack of wolves or two is supposed to spawn outside the player’s house every night. This is very aggravating. In addition, it would make teeth too easy to acquire if you actually consider implementing my suggestions.
