Release preparations

I am quickly adding last features to 1.24 and switching the mindset to release mode. Christmas is near, so near, we need to move fast.

There is quite a few new things I haven’t mentioned yet because I didn’t have time. Here’s one of them:

NewXmasTree

 

A new Christmas Tree for 1.24

The old one was too ugly for this year’s Christmas :-) And it was taking two precious slots in the blocks texture.

The new one has a proper 3D model and uses wood and spruce textures, so I was able to recycle the old tree’s slots. You can still light the decorations if you supply some power to it.

I am adding one final block, and then release time! Google Play gets it first for testing, as usual.

      Dear kaalus,

      Be prepared because im about to give a world with a bug that makes my head spin. https://dl.dropbox.com/s/fbnh57atd3l42pm/ultimate%20survi.scworld?dl=1
      After admiring the views and cheeking it out, you may want to cheek your inventory. I just played this game for the first time in 1.23 and noticed a vary odd thing in my inventory. A cooked donkey spawner egg. But, donkeys werent around in 1.22 and i havent found a way to cook a donkey spawn egg (or any other spawner egg). So how did this happen?

      Another update that ios will get too late :(

      Remember kaalus, you always give it first to google play for testing…… But I think you forgot something; APPLE NEED 1 to 2 WEEKS TO RELEASE THE UPDATE!!! :(((
      For the halloween update, ios had the update a week after, that was bad, now, christmas is in one week! I don’t want to have the christmas update on january ^^

      So, plz, submit now to apple! You can always release a little bug update right after!
      Would be awsome! Thanks :/

    You should make fishing net’s

    • Posted December 15, 2013 at 09:46 | Permalink | Reply

      You could make nets out of ivy then u can use the aim like when u are throwing things and the net will catch the fish and if u have a boat with a chest u can put the fish in the chest and remove it from the net by doing the same thing as when u split blocks and u can use the net again and again until it snaps. Another way of doing it is if u caught the fish in the net u can have a link button like the on and off button for fly mode and the fish will just drop into the boat or next to u wherever you are then if u have space in ur inventory it will automatically be taken up and u can also use the link button if u make chariots or a sleigh and use the linking button to connect the reindeer to the sleigh and horses to a chariot.

    Hey, You All Need To Chill, You Want Some of Those Features? MAKE A GAME YOURSELF. Please Do not Ask Kaalus A Feature Thats Too ‘Out of Reach’, He’s Working Hard For Us, And Please Do Not Say Anything To Offend Kaalus. If You Want The Other Out of Reach Features, Make Your own game. He Did This To Us, and Dont Complain About Odd Features, if You Were The One Making a game, and see that comment, you would have just freaked out, kaalus is always patient to us, so dont offend him.

    Hey everyone.
    This is gonna be a great update kaalus!

    Btw I’ve come with a bit of news…

    I am currently quiting the multiplayer world contest and never coming back.

    I’ve been going thru a lot of stress lately and apparently I have depression. It’s not very serious now… But I can feel it getting worse.

    I’m sorry but I can’t deal with this s*it anymore. Everyone had been hating on me. EVEN MY OWN PARENTS!

    They are disgusted be my hero who’s kept me away from self harm who knows how long…

    Again I’m sorry and I probably shouldn’t be here telling you all this…

    I should’ve known no one would’ve cared anyway…

    So no more 2-block-tall skinnable item? I like the tree upgrade, but that’s a bit of a bummer. :/

    KAALUS! I HAVE A HUGE PROBLEM! But first, I hope you feel better. Try one of this heating pads and an alieve if your sore. Helps me ;) anyway, so I’m making this SIM rpg world on survivalcraft and Nashville’s house keeps catching fire for whatever reason.(Read whole comment cause I found this really weird bug) It always happens while I’m working on another house and I don’t see it. But I will check over there and it will have like no flammable blocks. This has happened 10 times now, but the other day, I found what was causing it. I had a fireplace in the bedroom. And somehow a bug developed from that. I looked at a back corner of the fireplace and every few seconds, fire would appear like I had one of those small explosion things(the box, not the barrels) there. But I didn’t, and if I did, it shouldn’t have kept going off like that constantly. I put another stone block there to stop it, and the stone block disintegrated when the fire thing happened again! STONE BLOCKS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE INFLAMABLE! Please fix! I can’t restart the world now that I’ve gone so far! Maybe in the next update it will be fixed or at least whatever is causing it may be.

      Also know that I had gotten rid of all the burning blocks in the house, so this fire was conning from nowhere

      • Posted December 15, 2013 at 06:01 | Permalink | Reply

        That bug happened to me on versions: 1.21.3, 1.22.1, 1.22.3. Since 1.23 was released, I never seen that again. Maybe you put a coal block there? That coal block always starts a CRAZY FIRE. I see floating fire( The particles when a flammable block was destroyed by the fire) bits.

    No idea where Nashville’s came from. I ment to type ashcubus.

    Hmm.. One final block huh… Hmm so it dosent sound like a item per say.. I don’t think it’s a new weapon, not a animal, I don’t think it’s a type of stone or wood, my 3 guesses based on what I would hope for is a hay bale block, a stone fence block or a book shelf.

    KAALUS I HOPE YOU ADDED POINSETTIAS. People at mojang were bad they dont want to add furnitures, poinsettias, christmas decors and all that stuff. They even post about JOKE FEATURES! One member said that pizzas will be added but it was just a joke feature. well it wasa Christmas, though. Poinsettia.

    Great! It’s release time. But still no posts about corner stairs working inwards. :(

      Inverted corners is the word you’re looking for. Yes its a pain when you cant finish the roof properly. I’m sure it will be fixed one of these days, its just that its not that important.

    Yay! Finally the update will be out for 1 more block and to get 1.24 in full version I have to wait for a few week or months.

    Aw sucks and shoot :(

    Does recycling the two X-tree slots mean we can’t use them for custom textures anymore?

    They were used by many texturepacks for many other things.
    Like other characters, machines, like in my Horror-textmap and many more.
    (You have any idea how much time I spend making that guy hanging in chains?)

    But oh well nothing to do about it. – -d

    Bummer.

    See ya around,

    ps: tree looks nice though. – -d *snif snif*
