New weapon video

I finally finished working on the new weapon for 1.25. Here’s a video for you. Typically, it ends with a bang.

There are two types of ammo for it, even though only one is shown in the video. The player died before I could show you the other :-)

      Suggestions for 1.25 and above…

      I would just like to start out with saying I love your game and it has improved greatly. I would like to list some things that Minecraft doesn’t have.

      Here is the list:
      – Coconuts
      – Some reptiles (eg. turtles, crocodiles, alligators, etc.)
      – collars for wolves/coyotes
      – colored acid
      – coconut/palm trees
      – remote detonator for Gunpowder barrels
      – backpacks (can be crafted out of leather)

      I would also like to list some materials that Minecraft has but would make your game more realistic.

      – People/Indigenous People (as there are people in almost every environment)
      – skins/costumes/clothes
      – beds
      – more variety of ores/pure substance blocks
      – land transportation
      – villages (generated structures)
      – journals

      I would also like to include some silly, fun stuff that will draw attention to your game as well as boost downloads.

      – more monsters
      – acid (as mentioned above)
      – poison

      As I said before, these are just suggestions and you don’t have to take me seriously. All I ask is that you at least consider adding some. I know most have been mentioned before on your blog and you must be tired of hearing this, but…

      – multiplayer
      – minecarts

      If you are reading this thank you, and good work on the game.

        I think there should also be more sea life like Dolphins and blue whales (they would probably be too big though) but if not blue whales, at least dolphins. They could be like a horse friend but in the sea. They could get fish to swim towards you and help you catch them

      I don’t believe the crossbow is too slow… Just like irl you have to cock the crossbow, (which requires a UI) grab your bolt then load it….it may be a touch slower then the bow. The bow you just have to grab your arrow, (cock) load the arrow then draw without a UI. So compared to the bow, yes it may a touch slower because of the UI But it’s a crossbow, there has to be a UI to cock it, it Doesn’t draw like a bow would.

    Interesting weapon. It’s kind of a let down, though. I probably won’t use it. But what I’m interested in is… KAALUS was using a mouse. Which means he was on a computer. He was playing survivalcraft too. SO THERE’S A PC VERSION OF SC COMING!!! OMG!!

    Sent from my iPod Touch 5th!! [] PLAY SURVIVALCRAFT!!


    • Posted January 13, 2014 at 00:56 | Permalink | Reply

      Or, and this is just a guess, he was running the code on an emulator because it’s easier than compiling and rewriting for a PC.

      • Posted January 13, 2014 at 01:16 | Permalink | Reply

        He was playing on the pc because that’s where he develops the game, where did you think he develops it? It would be cool if he ported it as an official game on the pc

  15. Posted January 12, 2014 at 23:15 | Permalink | Reply

    He wasn’t playing SC on the computer, that’s how is/was recording it I.e reflektor or something.

    Kaalus, few things I noticed… The coal wasn’t showing up in the fuel box and maybe for the crossbow, the pull part, maybe you could put a directional arrow pointing down to help people… It just says pull at the bottom without a reference to pull what or which direction. It may be helpful to people who won’t see the video.

    …also I am interested what the other type of bolt it will be… Shooting the detonator and powder keg at the end could clue for possibly a explosive tip, And also it was very dark at the end of the video, I would think Kaalus would have edited or had the setting set for daylight… Or maybe that was another clue for perhaps a flaming tipped bolt which would give off some light, and he wanted to show it off in the dark (he did have a lot of coal in the chest)

    With those things said, I don’t think it will be a explosive tip.. He had used the detonator and powder keg to give us a fun explosion… … But it did get awfully dark and he did have lots of coal in the chest (coal used for a flaming tip) before he died.

      The reason the coal disappeared when he put it in the furnace is because as soon as he put the coal in, the items began to smelt and the coal disappeared.

        Ahhh… Your right, thank you:) I had thought he had put more than one piece of coal in the furnace :3

        Multiplayer: We can build and survive together
        Carpets: Keeps feet warm in winter.
        Armor: Kaalus added so many vicious animals that hunt the player, so having armor will be very helpful

    Kaalus please add ejector! For example, when we put the “ejector” shots and we connect to it, or the compression plate and on it we get it then shoot this arrow.

    The crossbow will only be useful if it kills a rhino with a single shot. At least kill a bear with a single shot. i still think animals shouldn’t attack in daylight.

        Maybe, he just started playing Survivalcraft and is used to the Minecraft way. I know it makes no sense at all, but Minecraft isn’t looking for any sense right now. Many people start playing and say we need monsters, multiplayer, pistons, portals, animals should attack in the day, it is not really survival without monsters and it is not “blocky” enough. I guess some people need to get used to this. Not trying to offend you, Sam Stone

          No offence taken. I see your point exactly. Harmless is too easy but survival mode is just that, bare survival. I’d like a better balance. The danger is a major part of the fun until the danger prohibits me from doing anything else. On the other hand maybe I need to change how I play!

    Just an idea for future updates:
    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).

  39. Posted January 13, 2014 at 22:13 | Permalink | Reply

    I was thinking when the crossbow is cocked and loaded wouldn’t it be cool to be able to place it on a block (it points to the direction towards you and therefore you can choose different directions to point it at) and then once placed on a block it can then be wired to a pressure plate or a motion sensor or a button or switch and therefore shoot when triggered. I think this would be plausible considering once the crossbow is cocked and loaded all it takes is a trigger pull and a trigger pull could be triggered. I think that would be tremendous, dynamic and innovating :) it could be the first weapon/trap system and be very versatile and quite distinguished compared to the bow. We could make dynamic animal traps, booby traps etc. and if we get multiplayer one day it would be just epic for that ;)

    – think outside the blocks

    • Posted January 13, 2014 at 23:03 | Permalink | Reply

      Wow what a rip off of the logo…

      Hmm… Looking that other game and what it has, and what it can and can’t do made me realize, if games like SC don’t get/add things like pistons or multiplayer then a new game just comes along and they add it. Don’t get me wrong I love SC over everything else and I don’t play anything else besides SC. With all that being said other games may surpass SC by adding fundamental blocks or features that SC Doesn’t have yet. I know Kaalus works his butt off so it’s just a matter or time before SC gets some of these features in :)

      • Posted January 14, 2014 at 00:05 | Permalink | Reply

        Yeah, just like SC did to MC. :) I think it’s because he is so worried about improving survival with new weapons and new threats, that he dosen’t have the time for new blocks and mechanics. We might not need pistons, but complaints about no multiplayer will go on forever. After 1.25 I think he will start giving us very useful blocks, such as trampolines, for jumping to high places, rope ladders climb up without attaching ladder to a block, ziplines, because it would be fun, rope bridge diagonal block to climb up from ground level to mountain, ramps, wouldn’t matter because SC has strayed from block items many times, orange paint, oars, boats are way too slow, and flares for finding your house, press a handheld button and watch sparks fly!
        And for you sideways logs. I think 2014 is the year when SC beats all other games *cough* Minecraft PC *cough*. Keep up the awesome work, Kaalus!

    I don’t know how practical opening an edit screen to load a weapon is. Seems like the root cause of a lot of frustrating deaths. Maybe just leave it like the bow. Crossbows aren’t any harder to load then a normal bow in real life why do so in the game? You already mentioned that Iorn bolts are more costly so surly that could be the hindrance of the X bow rather then a clumsy in the way edit screen. Only way I can see the edit screen working is everything is one shot kill with the xbow.

    • Posted January 14, 2014 at 22:47 | Permalink | Reply

      I’m pretty sure it’s a bit harder. With a bow and arrow you just have to hold the arrow up to the string and pull it back and you can’t keep it ready forever. A crossbow is different. You have to pull back the string, and load the bolt in there. It can shoot as soon as you pull a trigger. I wouldn’t use it for fighting either. It would be better for hunting. That’s just my opinion.

    talking about sound . sometimes when you open a door , their is a sound delay, also can you can design a volume slider control option in the game. the sound effects can be turn to the player comfort level. one that control for the environment, one control for the animals, and a control for the blocks ect; the game needs a realistic out door sound to it. :-)

    I love survival craft very much!! I would like to suggest you some things to make survival craft even better! First of all more ores (example gold,obsidian only from cooling down lava and next to her,silver,emerald,saphire,ruby for crafting armor).Moreover add armor, clothes etc.New animals gorillas attacking animal,penguins making eggs and dropping meat,seals also dropping meat, panda rare animal,eagles attacking animal,vegetables(carrots,potatoes,beans,tomatoes,corn).Maybe new type of tree sometimes dropping food.New type of weather sandstorm,hail etc. Last but not least add fishing rod to catch fish from the ocean! I hope you like my ideas and I respect your work ! Thanks for your time :)

    I think you should add lanterns. You hold them in your hand and they make light like a torch. It would be hard but not impossibe(o.k. mabey impossible). Also backpacks for those empty slots by the eat slot.
