    You got me at Bow & Arrows! Might have to create a new environment similar to a Hunger Games, Battle Royale setting. I too am looking forward to seeing this on iOS.

    Hey Kaalus i think this is some kind of bug:
    when ivy grows on non solid blocks like slabs or stairs, it blinks\dissapear when you moving around.

    love the update, great work as always :)
    now pistons please :P

    How do you shoot the bow?

  11. Posted December 15, 2013 at 23:27 | Permalink | Reply

    I found a couple of problems that may or may not be bugs.
    1. You can kill with arrows similar to am spear.
    2. Steel fence gates do not double up.

    Kaalus, so far I have not experienced any glitches. Although I do have a few dirt trees. I found them quite some time ago and they might have been there before you fixed tat bug, and certainly before this update. If I may make a request for what you have just added, might I suggest that you also add feather drops for ostriches? I killed some thinking they would drop feathers ad they did not. Then I thought I should come here and ask you. Also, since ostriches are bigger than birds, they could maybe drop 1-3 feathers? And great job on everything else! Your game is in the top 15 on the google play store! You’re #11! Congratulations!

    Thank you

      Yes, I definitely think ostriches shoud drop feathers too. Probably 2.

    It took 6 diamond arrows to kill a bull. Doesn’t seem to be much of an advantage over a spear. The distance that you can shoot isnt that far.

      Are arrows stackable? Do they wear out, or is it the bow? Though that is an idea, maybe the spear range should be shortened so that the bow has longer range.

    • Posted December 16, 2013 at 01:35 | Permalink | Reply

      I don’t know what you’re talking about, the range is about 30 blocks a spear is about 8. That is pretty far. I killed a rhino with an iron spear with 3 shots. Maybe, you’re experiencing a glitch.

      I killed a bull with 3 diamond arrows , I’m pro at the arrows

    Even though it isn’t out for iOS users yet, I’m really happy for you other players. We can now have better jails and shooting ranges, thanks to iron bars and bows with arrows and electric targets

    BUG!!!! I am getting an error on community content! it won’t let me post anything and is saying “ERROR string was not recognized as a valid date time” every time

  26. Posted December 16, 2013 at 01:41 | Permalink | Reply

    I have yet to find a white tiger, but my brother did. The new animals are all beautiful, wonderful job with the reindeer. I was wondering if maybe the reindeer could drop a fur and/or antlers for decorations. Not like leather, but like a pelt. It could be used as a rug, or wall decoration. It would be a nice step towards furniture, and it would be pretty darn cool.
    I have yet to find any real bugs, but I did find a dirt tree. I’ve taken a few pictures of it (and I’m building my house near it so I won’t loose it), and I’d be happy to send them to you if you’d like.

    I don’t know much about my device butI know that it has very little storage space left. I assume that is the problem, since deleting some of my worlds solved the problem.

      Ok. I have 281MB system memory, and 54.16MB of internal memory…sounds like I need to get an sd card. Hope that helps more.

    I wish the arrows did more damage. The arrows seem to weak.

  30. Posted December 16, 2013 at 03:05 | Permalink | Reply

    This I would consider a bug, and a complaint… The arrows are to weak when shot, they should be one or two points more powerful. The bug is that you can use the arrow as a machete that never runs out, it does not have to be shot to do its damage of 8. Please address these things, it would make the arrow system more worth the work.

    Nice. We have to use axes again. Love the update. We need iron Armor and leather Armor because we need more defense against the animals. Since the short swing distances, I find it hard to stay alive If 2 or more animals attack. The Dark animals in the caves scare the crap out of me.

    Sorry bud, but the arrows are too under powered they need to be stronger. It took 7 diamond arrows to kill a rhino when it should take 3( because they are powerful animals ).
    Also, maybe consider adding fire arrows as they would be great for traps and explosive arrows.

    Thanks for listening ;)

    Great job Kaalus!

    Next can you add Command blocks?
    Or even better, a two block tall man who stays still but is like a furnice
    (Has a UI)
    Which can be edited to sell things in creative and used in adventure/survival
    Would be EXELENT for adventure rpg maps!

    Oh and if you do make it so you can trade more than 5 things.
    Who agrees??

    Has anybody found Ivy in an existing world?
    I’ve been running around between my bases and outposts in adventure mode for days now from one area to the next that match hot and humid like in the screen shots but haven’t gotten any yet and l don’t want to go into creative to fly and find some.

    Ps. I notice there are a lot more lions and they are much more aggressive than before.

      Yes they are very aggressive , the way I avoid them is by throwing meat near them and run like hell

    It would also be cool if you added draft horses (work horses, plow horses) that could drive plows that could rake numerous blocks at a time. It would also be cool if u could add carriages or wagons pulled by horses. Thanks.

    Will they make any tamable animals like in minecraft how you can tame dogs and cats? And maybe breeding in animals? I think baby animals would be a nice touch so you don’t have to keep spawning, and you can just breed to get more… I think you would do a good job at that because your animations and detail in your animals. I like it a lot. Maybe a lioness? And I second multiplayer games

    • Posted December 31, 2013 at 20:40 | Permalink | Reply

      What if they added furniture like beds, tables, chairs, and/or decorations? And I second the Rams, bighorn sheep, or whatever… If they made a llama that would be awesome! ~ sincerely, Darynrory.

    To make the game better there should be 4 kinds of armor, multiplier, cars, skeletons, and objectives/islands
