New weapon

One of the first additions to 1.25 will be a new weapon. I know the game has recently become much more difficult, mostly by introduction of large numbers of vicious animals like lions, tigers and hyenas. In 1.25 I hope to mitigate it a bit. Stay tuned, I have the weapon almost finished. And yes, it will need a whole new UI panel to operate.

    HERES SOMETHING CLEVER I POSTED ERLIER,BUT NOBODYS SEEING IT BECUASE OF THIS POST

    Here is what the game really needs,not zombies,not vampires,rope,yep you heard me,rope can be used for tying it to a fence,then you can use it to explore a cave,better than the torch technique,the rope would save you if you fell,and to climb back up you press sneak,it can go 300 blocks before it stops unraveling,and would be crafted with nine string!

    and you could add more length using rope in the middle then 8 string around it,it would add 100 more blocks

      Hi Ferdinand (lol same name as me..:-) )
      I think the treasure generator is used for the graves..
      Because if you destroy a grave there’s sometimes an item inside.
      The block would probably decide which item it is.

    Hello kaalus! How are you today? Is your leg any better? I was wondering if you could add something that would REALLY change Survivalcraft… Armor. One of the things I’ve been disappointed about from the start is that there’s no armor! But if you add it then there will be nothing left on my disappointed list :) .

    My sister also found a bug where you can’t click the options in the left-hand corner or anything else. She is stuck in her world. She can’t even move or anything! It’s not frozen because stuff is still going on around her. She has a Kindle Fire HD and its in 1.24 .

    If we could get in contact via email or via Skype that would be good.

    Yours Sincerely, Josh Simard

      • Posted January 10, 2014 at 15:58 | Permalink | Reply

        There is a very wide divide in difficulty between normal and harmless. All of this stuff (attack range reduction, pit traps, etc) has changed normal…and I wouldn’t buy the game that is being offered today.

        Harmless is boring, but normal has become stupidly frustrating. Also it doesnt make sense If we are worried about realism….why do wolves attack humans? Because thats actually uncommon behavior in reality.

        • Posted January 10, 2014 at 17:28 | Permalink

          You are just a noob at combat in sc. Wolves do attack humans irl,in Alaska people have been attacked by packs of wolves,they kill your animals,then they come after you,the reason they rarely attack humans is because we killed enough of them that they are usually afraid. If you are alone in the wild at night and a hungry pack of wolves come by,hope you rest in peace

        • Posted January 10, 2014 at 18:07 | Permalink

          And you are a noob at constructive criticism. Also, wolves.

          Hungry wolves do attack humans…but there are far more cases of wolves leaving them alone. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf_attacks_on_humans). It’s very rare, except when they are low on food, sick/rabid, or threatened. A typical wolf that sees a human either doesn’t care or gets away. If wolves actually just ganged swarmed a human every time they saw us, we would have killed them to extinction back in colonial times.

          All of these mechanical changes have made for a game I wouldn’t have purchased; you think that it’s noobish that I don’t like them? I couldn’t care less. I’m a paying customer, unhappy with my product. I’ve had features changed to my dissatisfaction, and what I’ve gotten in return for it is electronics I don’t use, traps I didn’t ask for, a boat that controls poorly and gets me eaten by sharks the moment I get anywhere, and a donkey which ends up being a horse that I don’t want to use. This is where the programmer and creator gets feed back for his creations…so I’m giving it.

          Meanwhile…I’ve already explored normal mode. Nothing new for me to find except new hazards that stand in the way of stuff I’ve already seen.

        • Posted January 10, 2014 at 19:22 | Permalink

          Its noobish to be bad at combat in sc,if you run backwards while hitting (use iron machete) you can kill almost everything,other things that don’t die run away,also use the bow to shoot it as much as you can before it gets to you. If you get killed

      Dude, he just made the game so its possible to die. It is pretty unrealistic to attack an animal from like 10 blocks away. I really annoys me when people act like the game is so hard when its pretty easy in survival to build a house, mine, ranch, farm, and kill animals in survival.

      • Posted January 10, 2014 at 22:15 | Permalink | Reply

        It annoys me when people who dont bother to read constructive criticism directed towards a game…but than decide to take it personally for some reason.

        This is a game with diamond dropping werewolves and where wooden tools can mine stone. Also you can make complex electronics with coal and an oven. Seriously, realism is a DUMB excuse for any choice in SC. While we’re at it, why dont wolves attack cows and birds like the would in nature? That would be realistic. wouldnt it?

        • Posted January 11, 2014 at 01:51 | Permalink

          So i guess just because we have werewolves, we can have magical pixie dust and unicorns to fly us places. (Sarcastic tone btw) i wasn’t directing to u.

        • Posted January 11, 2014 at 04:55 | Permalink

          I’m not saying that you have to have all the unrealistic elements you can think of, and I never did. I’m saying it’s kind of silly to make a game change for the purposes of “realism” in SC. I mean, you can hold lava inside glass chambers. You can make floating platforms unaffected by gravity. Meat and eggs never spoil. Attack radius is not even in the life of the top ten most unbelievable, unrealistic stuff that happens in the game.

          Animals hunting each other would be cool (thanks for the compliment btw). And, hey, if the wolves hunted out an area of food and THAN attacked humans when they ran out of other options? That would be very realistic, and that would be awesome. That doesn’t happen though; the wolves look between a herd of cattle and a guy armed with three machetes and say “Yup, we should go after the sword guy instead of those docile piles of meat that can’t out run us and will never fight back in a meaningful way”.

          When that’s what happens, and I see attack range nerfed for “realism’s sake”? Sorry, that seems pretty dumb to me.

    As gunpowder is already in the game – firearms seem appropriate.

    I have noticed the increase in lions coming to my place. My place is pretty secure, but somehow a lion got in with my cows (it is a trench too deep for him to reach me) my guess is he got in by jumping on the back of another lion, that gave it the height to jump the wall/hedge.
    I don’t animals should be able to jump when on another animal (I had to raise my fences because wolves jump on each other as well)
    I think they should be able to ‘sink’ into each other a little.

    I have found it handy that animals are solid to me. I safe way to hunt (especially for werewolves) is to dig a hole, they fall down and end up standing on my head, they attack from there, so are easy and safe to kill (have a spare sword).

      They might be landing on your cows because if an animal lands on another animal it takes no damage and the other animal dies you probably know this

          . I really want a lasso because it would be nice to catch animals. With a lasso you can catch it and move it around like if you have a wild animal that somehow spawned in your house. Instead of killing it (and being at risked of getting killed) you can lasso,it and move it out of your house.It would also help you NOT loose your animal when you looking for stuff. I’ve lost a lot of horses camels and donkey cause they would walk off will I was mining.With a lasso you could tie it to a tree and it would actually stay there. I also like the idea of the whip cause….of….well it’s like survival and you have cattle and things

  34. Posted January 9, 2014 at 22:03 | Permalink | Reply

    …I’m kind of pressed to believe it’s not a gun for the simple reason that we just got a bow and arrow and it gave us more extended attack range from a projectile weapon. If it is a type of gun then a musket would be cool. But if it’s not a gun, I believe it could be a melee weapon like sword, battle axe or mace.. but as I mentioned before, a bullwhip would be cool, it could have more utility then a gun. Maybe the bullwhip could un rage a lion or tiger, kind of like a circus ringmaster could:) (I think I’ve been influenced by the Indiana jones marathon on the tele) :p

      What you said about the bow does make sense. But he did mention a new UI panel that is needed to operate it. I like the idea of a whip, but he also hinted that it should help against the hordes of vicious animals. Or was that a hint at armor? Anyway, I can’t wait to know what the new weapon is either.

    • Posted January 10, 2014 at 21:18 | Permalink | Reply

      Why would a whip have its own UI? It makes more sense to be a gun or canon. Then the UI would be used to add gunpowder and bullets or canonballs.

    when i first bought it, it was fun. then came the lions, tigers, sharks, stamina, need for sleep, etc. the only needed thing was the food. and we have so little help, it is impossible to survive an onslaught of wolves. plus, all the new stuff is just tools, creature, and electrics. add some real new FEATURES to it, not just items. the digging is too slow. the hunger/sleep/stamina depletes extremely quickly. bows you gotta tap an arrow to reload. like the player cant just pull one from his quiver himself?!? GIVE ME A BREAK! add in like more biomes, breeding, different plants. 90% of the ideas i saw on the forum should be on here, not just weapons and crap. you have SLOTS for the armor, yet you have yet to add in armor itself.

    ALL THAT is why i prefer MineCraft now. until i see REAL improvement, i am not playing this game anymore. i wasted my money.

      I do the exact same thing. It is not really “hard”. The animals are simple to fight. Unless there is a sneak attack. which tigers are extremely good at. Running and jumping and hitting back is the greatest technique.

    Consider the idea of adding a system which will allow you to draw blueprints and then the object would build the building off the blueprints. The blueprints might be drawn on a 2D grid and then stacked in layers to create a block by block plan. You would have to provide all the necissary materials. if you dont provide enough, the building will be built but it might be incomplete (missing a roof).

      This idea takes a different aproach. It aims at building instead of surviving. It would be a cool implementation.

      So killing innocent animals with a machete isn’t mature?

      • Posted January 10, 2014 at 21:48 | Permalink | Reply

        Yes but games are put into categories. If there were guns this game would be rated Mature/Gun violence. Though there are machetes there is no game category called Machete Violence. So this game is Mild Violence because it has no firearms.

        • Posted January 10, 2014 at 23:14 | Permalink

          You got some of that wrong. Games can have all kinds of guns, but how the guns affect the game is what counts. If blood or dramatic deaths occurs, it will be rated differently. I know tons of games with guns that are rated 10 and up. No blood, no problem.

        • Posted January 11, 2014 at 19:17 | Permalink

          Ratchet and clank has you using suped up guns that blow things to oblivion and its rated E10+ so what you said doesn’t make sense. Instead its what happens to the enemy that counts towards the rating. For example in Call of duty you shoot someone blood pours out as well as other gory things. That’s what makes it rated M. Kaalus could add a gun and keep the game rating at a medium as long as nothing besides drops was left behind.

        • Posted January 11, 2014 at 19:52 | Permalink

          But their not ACTUAL guns. Their made up futuristic beaming guns. Btw i didn’t say i don’t like the idea of guns. I’m just saying it doesn’t seem to fit survivalcraft. If kaalus does add guns I’ll be ok with it, but for now it doesn’t make since. Maybe a cannon with cannon balls makes since.

          Wolfspider55, finally I thought I was the only one here who plays Rachet and Clank. davidthegamefreak, I don’t understand how A cannon, which is 4x more powerful than a gun, makes sense now, but a gun dosen’t. Cannon are too powerful. Old guns weren’t as powerful as guns now. Guns make far more sense.

          Gunpowder barrels are stronger than guns too.

        • Posted January 11, 2014 at 23:02 | Permalink

          Thus, transfer gunpowder into cannon and its basically a shootable gunpowder keg. I didn’t say i didn’t like the idea of guns, its an AMAZING idea. It just wouldnt feel like im playing normal survivalcraft walking around with a rifle that can kill enemies with one shot. WAY too EASY.

        • Posted January 11, 2014 at 23:05 | Permalink

          I think its probably a gun or cannon because of gunpowder. But we cant be sure its either.

    The new weapon might be a crossbow like some said in the comments of Kaalus’ blog on the blog update “New Weapon”. Here is what made think so.
    “The new weapon is a lot more than just the bow itself, there is the entire supporting infrastructure in code that will let me do it properly and extend later, as opposed to quickly hacking it in a day.”

  43. Posted January 10, 2014 at 05:26 | Permalink | Reply

    Ok, my final thought on the new weapon is that it’s going to be a sword. I think a gun/rifle would negate all the hard work Kaalus had put into the bow and arrow and would belittle it. A sword could give a little more range and damage for a melee weapon (compared to the machete) He mentions a lion and tiger and hyena (land animals) so I had thought it could be a iron bear trap perhaps or a net someone else had mentioned, but I looked on the recipedia for the classification of the wooden spikes and it falls under item, not weapon as I had thought, so a bear trap would not be it considering he said it was a weapon. The new weapon Doesn’t seem complicated coding or crafting wise by the sound of it. If it were a gun/rifle then he would have to make resources for a bullet (lead preferred) but we don’t have lead (but it could be iron) so to me it sounds like we already have the resources to craft it. If it is a sword then the sword could be a lead-in for armor possibly. I would personally prefer a bullwhip because it could have some utility along with being a weapon and increased melee range and a mace for brute strength and originality.

      Maybe not…..think about it…when a person fires a rifle it emitts a powerful blast that creates a very loud bang. maybe if he adds a gun he’ll make it so that if you shoot it, other animals will react and attack you all at once making you decide between a powerful, but noisy weapon that attracts animals or a stealthy weapon that doesn’t attract animals. He could also make it a single shot bolt action rifle so you use the same reloading mechanic as the bow, you drag the bullet to the gun and it reloads.

      None of those weapons require their own UI though. A gun would require it. Maybe its a bomb. Then the UI could be used to set the detonation time as well as a few other things.

    It’s either a musket (gunpowder already exists) or some type of mounted weapon that you place, like a harpoon you can mount much the same as a horse and as an item is a placable block like a boat.

    Consider the idea of adding a system which will allow you to draw blueprints and then the object would then build the building off the blueprints. The blueprints might be drawn on a 2D grid and then stacked in layers to create a block by block plan. You would have to supply all the necessary materials. If if you didnt the building might not be built completery (it ran out of blocks half way through).

      Actually I’d say Xbox is on level with sc. Minecraft PC is the best of the versions and is better than sc(realistically,this is an unbiased opinion),just due to the fact that it has different realms,unlimited worlds,multiplayer,mods,maps,and texture supports

        I don’t approve of mods. It does not count if it’s not made from Mojang. Apparently people make mods and other people for such a great game with mods. Survivalcraft is just as good as MCPC edition to me. Think of the game without mods. It really gets old.It’s not bad, but It’s too easy. When you hit an animal, it run towards you so you can hit it again. They need to update the animals reactions. SC is more realistic. MC is more fantasy. I guess we should stop basing MC as a survival game, because an ending makes it arcade. It also has points, even though no one really cares about those. Both great games, but MC and SC have a long way to go to actually amount to a “simply amazing game”. MC needs to be more productive and improve instead of add.SC needs to add more and small improvements. My opinion is that SC is better. But MC is still cool.

      Maybe the silver bullet would kill werewolves in one hit, but would be fairly inaccurate, so it would depend a little on luck whether or not you could actually hit the werewolf.

    Guys, i have realized that it “probably” won’t be a gun. I’ve downloaded A LOT of games with guns and they all have the same message… Mature and Gun Violence. Survivalcraft has a lot of young players. Even though u may say Survivalcraft has machetes which are weapons, Survivalcraft is rated lightly mature because of the weapons and dying i think. All games with guns have the same category. Also if we had multiplayer, young players would be shooting each other, and their parents wouldn’t like that. It could be a gun, but i mostly think no.

    • Posted January 10, 2014 at 22:55 | Permalink | Reply

      While you bring up a good point in and of its self there is still alot to consider. I too have many gun oriented apps that do have “frequent/ intense violence” warnings. The difference is this, most games with these warnings focus on the accumalation of points by shooting others animated people or animals. Many of the games that target shooting animals also may include blood. These games target the use of a firearm for killing as the central purpose of the game,while survivalcrafts is to build and explore. It is also due to consider that parents already would have to deal with their children “shooting each other in multi player” with bows and/or impaling each other with spears or hacking at eachother with machetes, or even being killed by wolves in the night. Any weapon element could be taken out of proportion and viewed as disturbing as a gun in this game, but again is not due to the central focus of exploration and building. I feel any parent that could accept the current terms would accept the use of a “rifle/musket”. Hope that helps :)

        A gun would make the game to easy and would make the work that kaalus did on the bow worthless. A canon would be better because you could place it somewhere and it would only blast in the line of fire. So if nothing is in that line of fire, you can’t kill anything.
