Not loading bug

Now that all the platforms have been pushed out, I am looking again at the bug that causes the game fail to load on some Android devices.

The problem is I have yet to come across such a device myself.  I can’t fix this problem without being able to reproduce it.

The game starts flawlessly on all ~20 test devices I have. Today I went so far as to go to the local supermarket and test it on all the phones they had on display, including some cheap Chinese tablets. I hope I deleted all the account data from them afterwards :-) Anyway, no luck – works everywhere.

From the reviews and your comments I know that the device/OS combination that seems to be the most offensive is Galaxy S2 + Android 4.0.4. Also some older LG phones have it. As these are no longer in production, I will have to eBay again, it seems :-(

If the game doesn’t load for you, please keep listing your configurations in the comments (phone model + Android version).

    2nd! I only have the problem of my world not showing downloads or ratings.

      That’s not a bug, just means not enough people have downloaded it and no one’s rated. Once you get to about 50 ratings it will start to display

    I Have the bug that won’t let me load the game. Here is my info:

    Android version:4.0.4
    Device model: Samsung-SGH-I577
    Survivalcraft version:1.24.3.0

    I also had an issue before the game was updated to 1.24.3, where it would keep telling me that it couldn’t save.

    Hey I know this isn’t an error notification thingy but I wanted to make a little suggestion and I didn’t know where! But yeah y’know how you can plant the tree saplings to make trees? I was thinking what about ‘hill saplings’, available only in creative mode, where you place a certain block and quickly fly away and it ‘grows’ a hill just like you can grow a tree? You could have three of them and they would vary in size – so a small one, a medium one, and a large one? Just a thought, as sometimes I’d like to have specific hills but can’t find the right patch in a randomly rendered world, and it’s a little much work to build them in a creative, flat world. Also maybe something like a ‘lake builder’ of the same specs? It digs down and creates lakes of varied sizes? :)

      Also try to clear your memory, atleast 2.0 gb availible. Close all other apps and go to your performance option and reduce your visibility range.

      I’m on ios and still run into massive slow down to system crash.

    Why do my horses and donkeys keep jumping the fences. I remember for one of the updates, ridable animals could only jump over fences with a rider

      I was thinking it should only jump fences if it’s charged jumps like running a long distance then jumping

    Samsung infuse with 2.2, absolutely no problems other then the random crashing of entire phone, but i think its just that the game is getting to advanced for my phone to run….. i run 64 block distance btw so its not that.

    Anyways no loading problems here.

    Anyone else seeing the ivy flickering when placed against a slab or stair? Place it and then look at it moving around. I just want to make sure people are seeing this so it could be addressed in the next bug update.

        my world contains two towns. I named it castle world because the main focus is the two castles in the world but I don’t really like the name. So I need a new name that has not been taken so people who download my map and its updates know what to look for.

    I just thought of a good idea… so just like in real life fire has smoke right ….. and I was thinking the fire in survivalcraft should have smoke when it’s lit. Like when you build a fire place and you have to get the gray blacks to add as smoke but y not have real smoke for the fire. :) just a thought…. oh oh and ropes for the horses:D MERRY CHRISTMAS PPL!!!!

    The only thing that sucks about the updates is that all my texture backs are out dated and and I honestly don’t like half of the texture packs posted (not trying to sound like a hater)

    Please, if you’re incapable of making armor, just pay a dude to make armor for this game and that’s that. Just please, please add some armor. I think this game is great, but it would be even greater if it had some armor. :(

      You have to be patient for him to add stuff. He can’t just jam EVERYTHING in ONE update.

      He’s d bows and arrows on his to do list since the game got started! He also said the object of the game is ti find civilization in his VARY FIRST POST. He also has slots for armor and an alpaca in the game files. So many mysterys….

      He probably wouldn’t pay a guy to make armor. He does this by himself. He is most likely going to add armor or clothes, because he already has empty slots with no use.
