All platforms are go

You probably noticed this already, but all platforms have passed their certifications/reviews, and 1.25 should be available to everyone.

There seems to be a bit of confusion with the new block textures / character skins system. I get a lot of emails with people unable to find how to change block textures in 1.25. Here’s how: through the world options (the same place you change weather, world generation, static/living world etc.). Each world now has its own blocks texture, there is no more global setting. Character skins work the same way.

I am slowly getting into the mood and doing some work for 1.26. I haven’t decided yet what exactly will be included, but I have some strong candidates. Will let you know as soon as I do some more research.

Unfortunately today I discovered that my dev machine is crawling with adware and various “antivirus programs” and “advanced system optimizers” – don’t know how it could have happened, but it did.  I will need to do a clean OS install, a good few hours of work.

      I agree, Kaalus, I think you’ve overworked this masterpiece a bit, you need a brake, do something good for yourself before 1.26 :) Sincerely, a two year veteran survivalcrafter.

    I wonder what will be next?…

  3. Posted May 28, 2014 at 00:00 | Permalink | Reply

    I think this is a awesome update i I haven’t stopped playing it (IOS user)

    Hey kaalus, I’m sorry if bother you but can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make whips and lassos so it could easier to do so much more things with the vies. Like with a lasso you could catch wild animals,like horses and zebras for example, and move them to different spots. And,unlike the saddle, using the lasso will keep the animals wild, cause I’m tired of trying to move animals like horses, but also trying not to use the saddle cause I like to keep them wild. And not only that more motions in the animals would be nice as well, like rearing for the horses and donkeys sitting for the wolves and hyenas laying down for like all the animals. And stuff like that

    I’m so sorry if I’m being bothersome, but this would be a great thing to have in survival craft

    And don’t push your self, take a break please :)

    Yes, but no world with a custom texture can be downloaded or uploaded without errors and the texture NEVER loads, neither in uploads nor in downloads. Plenty of people have said this, here, in the forums, and elsewhere. The bug is cross-platform.

    There should be a search engine on community content. We should be able to hav dogs and cats. The dogs could follow you unless u make them sit. I really really want dogs.

      I want cats and dogs too. Cats could help you catch birds and other small animals and lions/ tigers wouldn’t mess with you if you had an Akita Inu dog beside ya!

    Maybe we can set what the world would initially look like! For example, being able to choose which biomes go where and where the islands and seas and continents go. You could choose how tall the mountains are and how low valleys and canyons can go. It would be the ultimate terraform!

        I agree but I disagree. I agree because that would mean faster travel than by boat or horse. I disagree because he’d be taking a page from somebody else’s book and Survivalcraft might begin to lose its uniqueness

    (uhm something weird here while trying to post. If it is posted more then once sorry for spamming but I don’t get to see my post if I click ‘Post COmment’ – -a)

    The forum has that too, or at least there are some very annoying ads sometimes even hijacking a page and redirecting you somewhere else making you sometimes lose work. :(
    Nasty Addware. It seems to be nested into something everybody uses and spreads slowly to sites it did not have it before.

    Btw regarding the cannon bug I think I have…
    I added a picture with my cannon test, that did not entirely go as in your video you might have already read. But the picture wasn’t included. Hope it shows here.

    That’s just windows for you, as long as you touch the Internet you’ll get viruses, you should switch to a Linux platform. I have found programming anything in Linux is much easier for me.

    Plz plz plz!! Add armor for 1.26 Plz!! (I’m not telling you that add this, just my opinion. If you’re reading these, if possible, add armor.) Armor will really help us from those wilds.

      to make it more original,he could add a bulletproof vest (wich isnt just used to protect from guns) or just a set of clothing to not get your face chewed off :)

    Please take a break!
    Also if it wouldn’t be to much trouble, you might be able to add bones. We get the bones from animals, the bigger the animal the more bones. Something like a bear, you might get 2 where as something like a boar, you might get 1. We could use them to tame wolves and coyotes. 3 bones to tame a wolf and 4 bones to tame a coyote. We could use the animals to hunt for us and protect us against other animals. Tamed wolves no longer turn into ware wolves.
    Just an idea:)

    Something I really think needs to be added to this game is maps, specifically maps that are a bit flexible, as in allowing you to hang them, mark positions possibly. I love these survival games by I have yet to see maps implemented all that great, they work, but they leave you wanting more.

    1.25 is an AMAZING update ( it took me 30 min. To figure out how to change skins and blocks though : ( )
