Apple Issues

I see that the iOS build that has recently been approved by Apple has some crashing issues.

Quite a lot of people are reporting frequent crashes. This is of course very bad :-(

I have stopped working on 1.24 to tackle this problem first. If you have an iOS device, upgraded to 1.23.5 and are experiencing crashes, can you please email me at candyrufusgames@gmail.com the following information:

  • What device and which version of iOS are you running
  • Which world were you playing when the crash occurred
  • Whether switching on “singlethreaded terrain update” in compatibility settings fixes the crashes

(you can also add your information as comments to this post).

Thank you! Hoping to resolve this issue fast.

      I’m Playing with IPhone 4S IOS 7.0.3
      World Name: SCraftFTW
      And of course switching on “singlethreaded terrain update” does work for me. Played for more than 10 minutes and no crashes. If i turned it off, it would have crash within 5 minutes.
      Lastly, did you fix that bear spawning. Because i have bear spawning on top of my house. Which is weird.

      would you only use singlethreaded terrain update if you needed to and not just to make your game faster?

    I have an iPod 4th generation running iOS 6.1.3. I was playing one of my creative worlds when it crashed, and somehow it changed he name to RecoveredWorld, changed the seed to 0, and made it possible for me to fly through solid blocks.
    Thanks,

    im experiencing crashes too on my nexus 4… didnt say that earlier because i dont have any crash log to share and crashes are random.. that happened also on 1.22 and 1.21(on htc one x) and so on ^^. till 1.19 when i bought the game. i think now it is more frequent. :( sometimes throws me completely out of the game to the system and sometimes only to the game menu <– this is new :)
    I would like to help but it looks like logcat does not work for me or root is needed.
    its not ios exclusive :)
    when I find some time, i will test new versions on iPhone 5

    sorry 4 my english

      Hi tom. You can google survival craft texture creator. They have some in iTunes. It’s only .99 cents. I’m not sure about other platforms besides ios.

      Get an android, they’re cheaper and are a lot easier to add stuff to like sd cards and what not. Also more appstores to choose from!

        • Posted November 9, 2013 at 01:03 | Permalink

          Ok, I do kinda think now the taiga biomes are a lil bit to big… A lil tweak less would be good I think, I’ve been flying around for 5 hours now…. Unless Kaalus is going to increase the other biomes.

    The game forme is slow and i have ipod 5 the view is on the second low, the app went slow when i was in creative, well i was about to enter my new created world and when i clicked enter i crashed and when i went back in i could walk through block and fly through them!

    I feel bad you had to stop working on the next update for iOS. (Even though I play on ios)
    Anyway when the world generates it goes good and then crashes. Also in creative items in your inventory aren’t inventory which is annoying but I can deal. But kaluss you need a break!! Take a vacation!!

    Yeah my itouch 4 crashes a lot with the game it currently is on ios 6 and pretty much any world that I load up except creative flat worlds I haven’t tried the singlethread yet bc I deleted the game on my itouch but still have it on iPad. And still play

    I have been seeing a bug in 1.23 when I use a certain electric system and look to the left I see an open space and can see diamond an other things in the ground and can see through walls, hope this helped in some way.

      …And also, I’ve been playing for 5 hours straight, the setting modification Kaalus had suggested seems to be working:)

        It only crashed once, coming across a large group or snowy trees though…

    Finally this is addressed after having this problem since version 1.22 and me getting a refund because the app became useless
