1.23.1 Out

I have just uploaded 1.23.1 binaries to Google Play.

Here’s the changelist:

  • Fixed magnets, thermometers, hygrometers cannot be broken in survival modes
  • Fixed drop values of gravestones
  • Fixed truth table inputs being named incorrectly
  • Fixed corner stairs sometimes leaving gap in the world
  • Changed creative inventory behavior – you can pick up ordinary items as in 1.22, only editable items behave differently
  • Pressure plate analog output changed to be more useful (indicating weight more precisely)

Thank you for all the bug reports – keep going!

To remind you, we are still in the beta testing stage on Google Play. Once this is complete I will publish for all the remaining platforms. Please be patient.

1.23.1 should be available to download in a couple of hours. In the meantime, have a look at the pressure plates video:

I also fixed the server, which had some difficulties displaying items in “recently added” order. This should be working now.

      There is only 8 different values the plate can return – you can’t distinguish them all

    Awesome KAALUS. I have a question. Will 3X work on iPod 5? Cause that’s the only thing that I’m really looking forward to about this update. (With the exception of the Real Time Clock). So, I’m kinda wondering what’s gonna be in next update. If it’s something that you and I, KAALUS, can do together, I wanna be in it.

    First of all, thank you for tweaking pressure plates, now they are more usefull :)
    Second – after some time i fully understand the memory bank now! along with the counters and thruth tables is the best thing i ever used in SC :D
    Now i can create some really outstanding (and small) mechanisms :)

    Anyway, i read descriptions(on your blog and recipedia) about memory bank and i think that back input doesnt work when i want write value to memory.
    I have connected 4bit counter to input on the back of memory bank. Then i send 0.7V “pulse” to the clock on the bottom and nothing happens :(
    Can u look at this and tell me it is bug or not?
    I guess I doing something wrong, or not understand the description properly. (english is not my native speak)

    “The value supplied on this input will be written at the address given by address lines on the rising edge of the clock input, which must be 0.7V or less”

    later ill upload screenshots of my machine so u can look at this :)

    cheers

    sorry 4 my english.

      Indeed, there is a bug with writing to memory bank, well spotted! I already fixed it for 1.23.2. In the meantime, you need to manually write something beyond the memory address you intend to write using clock input. E.g. if you want to write at address 0, edit the memory bank and put a non-zero value anywhere in addresses 1 to 255 (beyond 0). Once you do it, the clock-based write should start working.

    I know this is not the right place for this comment. So please forgive.

    My daughter Rowan (10 yrs) and I love your game. We play it every night together building our own separate worlds and showing each other. The breadth of features, environment, combined with downloadable content make it the best sandbox game for iPad hands down.

    I’m in the same industry (roughly) as you. I know the hard trade offs between doing a huge new feature (such as multiplayer) and getting the basics right. You’d need to allow your product to stand still for a bit while you work on that big feature. As an average end-user, to me, your product is beautiful and works well. If there are glaring bugs or omissions on the basics, they are not apparent to me. Also, you are way out front of Minecraft on iOS, so even if you slowed down your release pace a bit to work on multiplayer, you’d no doubt still remain superior once you emerge with multiplayer.

    As I said, my daughter and I love your product. But it would be so much more fun if we could build together the beautiful worlds you allow us to create.

    – David and Rowan

      That was touching. But you are right. If he maybe took a few months and took his time, multiplayer in this game would be UNBEATABLE!

      Cars? Seriously! It’s called SURVIVAL craft for a reason. It’s a survival game. Not a game where u drive cars around. Mine carts or caravan wagons would be more likely to be added. Please,anyone who has an idea that survival craft should contain cars,planes,etc like that,please stop asking kaalus for it because it will probably not happen. Think as if u only have the things in your creative mode inventory. Come up with ideas u can make with things like those. Or something like a type of flower or animal or bush/tree,(think about natural things)

      You mean the community content staying the same? It’s because there were no user ratings before 1.23 was released. Check it now, a lot has changed. The ratings decide who goes on top and who sinks.

    Kaalus have you thought about doing a beta while you develop the game? That way you could have beta testers and make the release process more expedient. Just a thought.

      Nice. Why don’t you make the walls unbreakable by using something that cannot be broken with a pickaxe, e.g. wood? You wouldn’t need “only the glass can be broken”.

    ok im pretty sure that i found 2 bugs (1.23.1)

    First is about new displays(4led and 7segment).
    Under certain angles, numbers and leds look like they floated in the air, instead of being attached to the block.
    http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/30/5hdk.jpg/
    http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/30/x65s.jpg/

    second bug is bit wierd, It causes the disappearance of displays and other things, but the text is still visible:
    http://imageshack.us/f/593/o8g3.jpg/
    I’ve done a few tests:
    http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/27/yh0v.jpg/
    and i think its because the whole line of displays is placed on a chunk boundary (im not sure)
    i dont care about this, its more like glitch than serious bug, its not annoying but i think u should know about this.

    sorry 4 my english :)

      Both effects are due to limited accuracy of z-buffer on some mobile devices. I am using 16-bit z-buffer for compatibility. Not a bug. Thanks anyway!

      • Posted October 26, 2013 at 22:26 | Permalink | Reply

        after more test im 1000000000000% sure that second effect happens only on chunk boundary. So I’ll just try avoids the boundaries in future :)
        Thanks for answer and im waiting for 1.23.2! :)

      that’s the skewed texture thing I was trying to explain earlier….kaalus said something about it being caused by problems with the bit boundary or something like that…..he suggested to fix this you need to move the build sideways to move the bits to another boundary.

    First, the video on pressure plates was really helpful. Could you also make a video tuttorial explaining music, memory, sound generator, basically everything you need to make music? I think many people would find it really helpful.

    Also, if I ever have an idea or suggestion, which is the best way to contact you?

    1.24= Skins and Multiplayer. All I want is skins and multiplayer! I think Survivalcraft has enough features to keep it fun while multiplayer and skins are being developed. Survivalcraft has a strong community and would make a great multiplayer environment. What else does Survivalcraft desperately need right now? People have asked for it since its launch. That was years ago! We want multiplayer! The new features are good and all but I think I speak for the community when I say we really want multiplayer.

    Hi kaalus I have an old bug actually. I forgot to post about it. Anyway. Sometimes in creative mode this will happen randomly. I was working on a house one time and suddenly I could “see through the wall”I guess u could say. But it was like different from ordinary things. The flowers and window and stuff were all dark gray forms. I could even see underground! I had to get off and get back on before it went away. I’m getting tired of it! If it happens again I will post a pic. Then u can know what I’m seeing. Please fix. I have a android kindle fire
