Survivalcraft File Explorer

One of the community members created a cool online tool which allows you to explore Survivalcraft worlds without using the game.

Here’s it is:



You need to give it a .scworld file and it will display all the modifed chunks in the world (i.e. the ones that were altered from the generated default). You can also view locations of various ores.

I hit a roadblock when working on the skins for 1.25 – that’s why it’s still not ready for release. The roadblock is to do with skins and block textures management, I wanted to change the way it’s all handled, to give you more control. Unfortunately it turned out it’s a lot more work than I expected – in fact I am still dealing with the mess :-) Anyway, I don’t expect it will take much more time now. Hopefully.

        Though multiplayer would be nice,I don’t expect it for at least three updates (how many low hanging branches can there be?)

        • Posted May 1, 2014 at 21:37 | Permalink

          Agreed. He hasn’t even finished skins yet so multiplayer probably won’t even be an issue soon. Besides, multiplayer has to start slow before just throwing it in. Starting slow with local wifi connected multiplayer then getting into the big stuff. Its really annoying when people repeatedly ask for it though.

      Multiplayer would cost a lot of extra money to host servers, especially because so many people use SC.
      I hardly play online games though, so I have not much saying in it…
      And it requires an exensive amount of work to add an entire new mode to the game and all the communication features.
      Next to that, we need administrators that keep a check on things, to prevent people getting bullied and such.
      But perhaps with a monthly fee/suscribtion? (And possible for the new employees and office space if Kaalus were to hire people to do all the extra work to get it done.)
      But I do not really need multiplayer, so this is easy for me to say! lol!

        Yes I realize this,but multiplayer,even a bad one,will make sc more popular,and Kaalus can start charging more for the game

    @Kaalus If you have extra time, please make an app that would allow us to create skins 3d straight away rather than using paint or other things. I know how to make skins on minecraft, but here it’s confusing, what the heck is the thing on his head that makes him look like an alien? I’m just so confused

      There are survivalcraft apps out there that makes the skins but the problem is that ‘is it the right format like kaalus gave us’. they do currently have skin apps but i beleive theyre more outdated as the pamphlet shows the characters face and back and arm. as kaalus’s template shows the sides of character.

        It’s wa theory that only applies to flat areas! Either way the theory is that most saltpeter is located on the edge of sand banks where sand meets grass. Most saltpeter is found using this fashion in relatively flat areas.

    A couple things about the File Explorer…
    1. It shows your world upside down. We are on the east coast according to sunrise. But North direction in world is actually “down” in the app. It would be better to have North be “up”, IMO.
    2. I like the mouse scroll-button zoom feature, but it would be even more useful if I saw more blocks than just one as I zoom out. I know this means increasing calculations exponentially. But if there’s a way then I could use this to map spread out builds. Maybe a real low res, 2D representation would work?

      In #2 by “block” I actually mean a region of blocks.

    This world file explorer is a great way to cheat and find where all the diamonds are hiding…in my castle world 2 map, I found out there is a boat load of diamonds directly beneath the castle and the spawn area

    • Posted May 2, 2014 at 22:02 | Permalink | Reply

      actually you don’t need that to get diamonds. you could go out during a full/new moon and kill some werewolves. They sometimes drop diamonds. You might think it’s dangerous but:
      Dying from werewolves is not a bad thing, you can still get back your items back, plus you can make traps for those like I did. It’s better considering the fact that diamond ore is really hard to find and you could potentially fall to lava and lose everything permanently

      • Posted May 3, 2014 at 00:54 | Permalink | Reply

        True but with the world explorer you can see where all the diamond ore is and where magma pockets are and there is no risk of dying or losing stuff

        • Posted May 5, 2014 at 18:38 | Permalink

          Yep, also its a better achievement to find diamond yourself.

    I have an idea that could be added into the game. Mushrooms. I was just about to mushroom hunting with my dad, when I thought, “Mushrooms would go really good in Survivalcraft.” So, I have an idea on how to cook the mushrooms if you are pondering if you want the mushrooms or not. You could go to the crafting table and put the mushroom in it, then put some flour in it. Then it’ll come out as a mushroom with flour on it. Then, you take a bucket of water and the mushroom and put them in your stove and cook them. Them the mushroom will come out cooked and darker then it originally was. And the bucket will come out empty in the box with the. … in a row. There!! I think that would be really cool in the game and hope Kaalus ponders with the Idea. Does anyone agree with me?

    • Posted May 4, 2014 at 01:04 | Permalink | Reply

      I like it. This is a very well thought out idea. You should post it on the forum under Feature Requests. Hmm wild mushrooms are known to be poisonous. Perhaps that would be a risk – a safe and a poison version that look similar.

    Hi kaalus, whats up? I have some nice sugestions for survivalcraft.

    The first one is a new type of gamemode: the “doomsday mode”, in this gamemode, you have to choose in how many time the doomsday will strike (10 days, 20 days etc.) the difficulty is the same as challeging, but you cannot respawn like in “cruel” gamemode, when doomsday strikes, every flamable block that is NOT underground will burn into flames, it will being to rain, and all the animals (including birds) that are NOT underground will transform into werewolves, making survival outside impossible. The objective in this gamemode is to make a sustainable underground shelter and try to survive as much time as you can, you will need an underground farm, some cows ostrichs, lots of food, etc.

    The second sugestion is to add a mod support for the game, lots of players have cool ideas for mods and other stuff, it probably could be added to the comunity content in some “mod page” it would be really nice.

    The third suggestion is to add a new type of boat: “The mega boat” (this probably would be a mod content). The mega boat is a much bigger boat than a normal one, this boat is much faster and resilient, and it have a “second floor” with a whell that controls it. You are able to put a few block inside it, like a wicker lamp, a chest or a crafting table. I’ve putted some examples of it’s design on this email, see the images. Of course, the boat will not be so big like in the images, thats just an idea of how it would be. This boat would be very nice for long trips on the sea, and it’s just amazing.

    The last thing: I want to report a annoying bug related to sea islands. When you step on some islands, there blocks aren’t solid, and you end falling out of the world, they are like a “phantom block islands”. Please fix this bug, because i love to make sea adventures and the phantom islands always ends with my hard made game :(.

    Pleaseeeeee, reply to this e-mail if you can, I hope you will like my ideas and congratulation for the awesome game.

    PS: I’m brazilian teenager, if i’ve made some ortography mistakes on the texts i’m sorry.

      Multiplayer is one of the hardest things to code and include in a game. Everyone already requests multiplayer quite a bit and its not easy for anyone to program. Have some patience and let Kaalus work, You never know if and when multiplayer may be added so cut him some slack.

    Why the big holes in the “survivalcraft file explorer” render? It doesn’t seem ready for prime-time.

    Navigation (using the side panel) is fairly good, except it needs ability to click and “go-there”. My understanding is the Survivalcraft world/map is “infinite” (?) so shouldn’t the side panel show more of the terrain?

    Would also be good to have a way to see where certain other resources are (& other food items, wood, vines)

      It only shows chunks (16*16 block vertical shafts) which have been changed from the generated world.

    Its ridiculous how long it has took you to complete your up udates ive been a fan of survival craft before fly mode was even created, now that you have received a nice amount of profit from the gaame it seems you have abandoned what use to be your dream the turn aroumd time for the updates are horrible now it didn’t use to be that way. You should hire more help instead of just keeping ppls money and going on vacation if u keep this up I will do everything I can to downgrade your success in this field. Coming from a discussed fan smh absolutely horrible how you treat your fans now you see a little fame dont delete this either because u know its the truth

      Wow so you’re the guy who drove Flappy Bird away! An expanding and ever more complex code base, wih occasional rewrites of same, nah that has nothing to do with it. Yes, you are so motivating, I’m sure he’s eager to please you now.

        Kaalus is Kaalus but he’s just a one man, and so you’re saying that Kaalus shouldn’t take breaks? Kaalus has a life too. He needs breaks too, like we all do. Now, double tap the home button and throw the webpage away.

          I understand he needs breaks just as we do. But when your commited to a job it should receive alot of your focus. I work 5 days a week not 2 days every 3 weeks. Kaalus needs to get it together or he will be just another computer designer that made it half way.

          No disrespect intended sir, but we like Kaalus the way he is. Sure, sometimes he is a little slow, but guess what! He’s human. Do you even play Survivalcraft every day?

          Its supposed to get harder and longer when he adds more complex features. You have no idea what is happening in his personal life and shouldn’t be worried about his personal business. In all respect, you try to do what he has done over the years. These features aren’t even thought to be on mobile devices but he made it possible. You have no idea how many days a week he works because coding is very hard. This is one of the top paid games on the google play and app store. Its his game, I believe he can do what he wants with it. What kind of insult is saying that he will become a forgotten computer designer? I think he’s successful with a good selling game called Survivalcraft. where is
          your game? If you have one. He’s been making amazing progress over the years. Please don’t be ungrateful. :-)

          Do you even know basic code like this? This is just basic app making. Imagine how hard it must be for Survivalcraft.
          package com.mycompany.myapp4;

          import android.os.Bundle;
          import android.util.Log;

          public class TetriBlastActivity extends Activity {

          private MainMap mMainMapView;

          public static final String TAG = “TetrisBlast”;

          private static String ICICLE_KEY = “tetris-blast-view”;

          /** Called when the activity is first created. */
          public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
          Log.d(TAG, “Create main layout”);
          getWindow().setBackgroundDrawableResource(R.drawable.tetris_bg);//Draw background
          mMainMapView = (MainMap) findViewById(;
          //TextView myText = (TextView) findViewById(;

          if (savedInstanceState == null) {
          // We were just launched — set up a new game
          } else {
          // We are being restored
          Bundle map = savedInstanceState.getBundle(ICICLE_KEY);
          if (map != null) {
          } else {

          protected void onPause() {
          // Pause the game along with the activity

          protected void onStop() {
          // Pause the game along with the activity

          public void onSaveInstanceState(Bundle outState) {
          //Store the game state
          outState.putBundle(ICICLE_KEY, mMainMapView.saveState());

          1. Where did you get the idea that im 10 because i am 27
          2. All i am saying is that the more he adds the more difficult it will get and you shouldnt be saying that is ridiculous that the update isn’t out yet. Kallus is trying to make it as good as he and that is why it is taking so.long

      Have you seen the last updates??? The last updates have added things no one in Minecraft or Survivalcraft have ever dreamed of, or have been requested many times over the years. If you expect an update every month, but the same level of content, then you have no care for its creator or the quality of the game. There are many Minecraft clones out there, but with 3 years of development we have seen a great game. Though the updates on wordpress may not be as often as in days past this does not mean the game is getting worse, it means we are moving to great things that require more attention from the creator and more support from the players, not people yelling at Kaalus for not posting everyday. If a bad, inpatient attitude persists in the community, then we shall see no more updates, and a creator who has left all of those impatient people to wait for something that will never come because of their inhumanity. I say inhuman because several members, and commentators on this forum and on the community send hurtful words because they have not received updates with minimal items. Sending hurtful words across the internet may not influence you, but it influences everyone else that reads it and especially Kaalus, who works so hard to bring us the excellent marvel that is Survivalcraft. If have nothing that brings someone up, but doesn’t bring something down, don’t say it assuming that things will go your way.

    Hi guys,

    My name is Stefan Cioc, and I’m the developer of this tool (Survivalcraft Explorer). Please don’t blame Kaalus for anything related to this program – if anything is not OK, is my fault.

    Thank you for the comments on topic and appreciations. I will try to answer to your questions and suggestions below.

    – why the big holes in the map? – only the chunks (groups of 16×16 cubes) that you alter in some way are saved in the game file; the others are simply generated using a random generator each time you run the game (but each time in the same way). I should know the generation algorithm in order to reproduce them – but I don’t know it and is out of the scope of a simple web application. So if you need to see the missing map pieces, just change the landscape slightly (add a block, or carve a block) so that the chunk is saved in the game file.
    – navigation using click on minimap – I agree, it’s very useful, I’ll try to add it
    – world orientation is not correct – I never thought about this; I’ll try to fix, but anyway I don’t think is very relevant, as you can rotate the map freely
    – zoom out should display a bigger part of the map: this is risky to do, as a high polygon count can easily bring the 3D renderer to its knees. I’ll try to do it with separate buttons – you can click on them, but I can’t guarantee if it works – depends on the local hardware.
    – should display also trees / wood / animals: yes, is possible, but this was not in the scope initially. The idea was to build an application to discover hidden caves and resources (the trees and animals you can see with your eyes…)
    – run the program from tablet/phone: yes is possible, using Firefox and a File explorer application (you have to have both installed, in order to be able to open the .scworld file in the web page). It’s not so easy to use, though (if you zoom in is not possible to zoom out, because zoom out just change the view of the 3D render, doesn’t zoom out all page). I’ll try to fix it.

    I have also some comments to make:
    – there should be some feedback after you choose the file, that the game files are being unpacked. For complex worlds can take several seconds.
    – underground caves which are filled with water are not shown – currently the “caves” structure is built based on the interface of air with something else (stone, basalt, water etc.)

    But don’t forget that the program is free and open-source – so, if I don’t have time to do all this changes, you are kindly invited to contribute and add new features, on sourceforge!

    I kinda miss when he posted something every few days. Even if it was just letting us know what his most recent screw-up was, we like to be up to date.

    Kaalus may take a while to post now, but he is working on things that take many days and are beyond cool.

    Derrick price if I may,you are disrespectful to kaalus and this may not be related to Survival Craft but,
    Why live in a world without change,change is the action that makes us human,change is keeps our mind learning,
    And if you cant accept the change of what Kaalus is making,then you cant accept anything smaller that
    Will change.

    Hi guys… So I used to be hard core SC.. But this update is way over due…it’s almost been half a year for a single update primarily for a explosion, some weapons and skins…it will take me about 5 minuets to exploit these features…so I have been playing a far superior block building game called space engineers. They release a update every week and have already released wheels, weapons and multiplayer to name a few things…. And yes I am voicing my options on this game because I am a paying consumer of this product. So if you guys like to build without limitations and enjoy developer feed back and weekly updates then play a superior game. Space Engineers.

      Have you realized that game in on the pc, and may have a whole team? I also looked at the updates log, the game does not grant huge updates, but small things at a time which require less time to push out. Also saying that a game has multiplayer compared to Survivalcraft is not a big deal; for instance, look a World of Cubes it has multiplayer, but Survivalcraft is much better. I may also be guessing, but attitudes like this may make Kaalus not want to work on Survivalcraft anymore if people don’t care about the creator.

        Yes I am quite aware of all your topics thank you… But my opinion still stands…. If he Doesn’t work on SC anymore then it won’t be my loss.

        • Posted May 10, 2014 at 01:54 | Permalink

          Well than you obviously don’t care much about Survivalcraft. If you don’t even play, why do you even bother looking here?

    People aren’t very nice to Kaalus. We should all see what he has done so far, respect that, and be patient for the new update.

    • Posted May 9, 2014 at 23:24 | Permalink | Reply

      Hi Blake.. You must be new to this forum.. Patience for a 6 month update is way over due… I’ve been following SC since 1.22 … sure others may have been following longer.. Props to them… But someone new like you can’t really say have patience when you just started. I’m not disrespecting Kaalus… I’m just suggesting to play something better… Better concept, better feedback and better updates….obviously I’m interested in SC but… Very, very long updates loses my interest amongst the hundreds of others that fell out of SC favor.

      • Posted May 10, 2014 at 01:52 | Permalink | Reply

        New? Um… no. I’ve played Survivalcraft from before the horse update and I can tell you that patience can run with people well over our time.

        • Posted May 10, 2014 at 01:55 | Permalink

          Also, you may lose interest in this game, but don’t take it out on the creator or the others that still like Survivalcraft very much.

        Hehe! Long updates?! Go play Minecraft PE! And they have a whole team!

        Sorry, but I’m sick of the attitude some of the people here have. You’re lucky that Kaalus even updates this game. And so what this update takes longer? Just because the rest of his updates took a certain amount of time, you EXPECT and DEMAND that this be the same? He has a life outside of this too! How selfish and rude! Why don’t you go away and come back when you can show some respect to the game and to its creator.

    I looked over one of the older post’s comments, and they are drastically different from today’s comments. In older posts people would cheer on Kaalus and not say “When is the update?” all of us can change the current mood of the comments and give Kaalus the praise and recognition he deserves. Keep up the good work Kaalus! I hope you still enjoy making Survivalcraft.
