iOS approved

Finally Apple have reviewed and approved 1.25.8, which hopefully is the last bugfix release in 1.25 series. Apple device owners should be able to download it shortly, if not already.

Some explanation to do with ART runtime support on Android. I don’t expect you will get much speedup from running Survivalcraft under ART runtime vs Dalvik. The reason for that is Survivalcraft, being multiplatform, interfaces with the system libraries in a minimal way. Probably less than 1% of code can be speeded up by ART.

ART support is nevertheless important, because other apps designed specifically for Android can see more tangible gains. More and more people will make the switch away from Dalvik.

Anyway, it’s good to know that ART support seems to be working. Thank you for all the feedback!

    You should totally take a break before working on something else. Anyway, thanks Kaalus for the 1.25 update!

      possible bug report for iOS: on an iPad, when trying to load the crossbow, touching the E doesn’t open the loading screen. in case my fingers are clumsy, I used my stylus, nope no way to get the crossbow screen open. any tips? or is this a bug?

      you should make plasma weapons and more mobs, add zombie or floating eye.

    I have a feeling armor might be worked on soon, at least before multiplayer.

    Maybe we could have armor,like Malachite Armor,Diamond Armor and more
    It’s because i am still scared to hunt even if I have a crossbow and many explosive arrows
    Having an armor would make hunting less brutal :)

      This game is supposed to be hard,and armour wouldn’t help against a rhino

      Leather, Wood, Iron, Stone, Diamond, Malachite, Copper. Could have different types of stone armour. Also could add gold.

      • Posted June 7, 2014 at 00:01 | Permalink | Reply

        Stone is too brittle,so is malachite,as it is basically rust.diamond is too hard,and it will never be made into armor

          So ur against armor?

          Its too obvious, he’s against armors.

          We still have Iron which can be used and he could add steel, and we could make chainmail and other types of armor out of the iron and steel

        • Posted June 7, 2014 at 15:44 | Permalink

          Chainmail is too hard to make and requires a long time. I’m not overly against armor,I just think it’s easy enough,if you want it to be easier play on harmless. And in real life armor wouldn’t help vs a tiger,lion,or bear(oh my),or even a pack of wolves,armor is designed to stop penetration,not protect from blunt force trauma. A rhino has a sharp huge horn,and if an arrow can pierce it what do you think a charging rhino will do to your armor.

        • Posted June 7, 2014 at 20:05 | Permalink

          Clothing is ok,even if it was simulated armor instead of a more arcade amor I’d be fine,but it has to be hard to make. But minecraft style armor,im adamantly against

          Posted June 7, 2014 at 23:12 | Permalink

          I think armor can protect against wolves and bears and tigers and piranhas and sharks and wild boars and werewolves and lions,how can their bites penetrate armor?but rhinos and bulls are no protection for armor,they charge causing player to get force and rhinos horn is sharp and huge like ike231 said
          Iron armor,basalt armor,malachite armor,Diamond armor,leather armor and yes Wood Armor,it exists,try searching wood armor,copper armor exists maybe :/

        • Posted June 8, 2014 at 17:56 | Permalink

          Basalt is still stone,and it is too brittle,in real life it would break. A boar has huge tusks,and strong jaws,they could penetrate iron,but not steel. Wolves irl tear you apart,they don’t need to get past your armor,and can bite with a force of at least 500 minimum,as the highest recorded was 900,mix that with sharp teeth and a pack,they can tear you apart.bears charge at 30 miles per hour,and generate the same rhino effect without the horn,remember,armor doesn’t protect against blunt force.
          Lions have more bite force than a wolf,and can literally knock your block off.just armor vs a big animal at all wouldn’t help,unless it was vs a piranha or coyote

    I’ve been wondering if you can put in immersive mode in the next update or even implement it in a small 1.25 update. Take advantage of the entire screen real estate for devices with onscreen buttons and running KitKat android

    I think it would be helpful if tamed animals(currently horses but just incase) could be named and naming them would put a bar above their head that has their name in it so that you could tell them apart from one another. Animal breeding would also be very much appreciated. Thanks for your hard work and dedication. Please feel free to take a break before continuing. I wouldn’t mind at all. You deserve it. :)

      Not a bad idea but lions/tigers no Savanna cats and tamed wolves/ coyotes can pull sleds Wolves cold to normal, coyotes normal to hot bioms.

          I personally oppose wolves

        • Posted June 9, 2014 at 01:59 | Permalink

          Me too I used too but I don’t anymore cause too many people wanted wolves on the list

        • Posted June 9, 2014 at 01:38 | Permalink


          What do you think of animals hunting and the animals actually eat the grass and flowers. Ex. cows that are fed often drop more meat/ a cow that has no food dies and drops 0-1 meat. or cow eats grass wolves hunt/kill cow and eat it so they live…. like a food chain. also that would lead to you fencing in cows so wolves don’t eat them.


          Why do you not like wolves?

        • Posted June 9, 2014 at 04:29 | Permalink

          I personally hate wolves because the ability of taming them will make the game to easy, due to wolves being main enemies like Zombies are in Minecraft. Also Kaalus does not like copying Minecraft elements as well as dogs are haram, which would drive away a lot of Muslim players from Survivalcraft.

        • Posted June 9, 2014 at 11:27 | Permalink

          yea… also finding a desert just so you could find a coyote would give the whole taming thing a purpose… ill kick wolves off the list.

    Please put better things on your next update cause I really wish you’d put more animal spawners in the inventory other then spawning in a generated world. Please take my comment into thinking.

  18. Posted June 14, 2014 at 16:28 | Permalink | Reply

    Someone found out there was going to be a blowgun in the next update. I could really imagine there being rails and carts in the next update. I would also want different color dyes. So that you can make the bombs have different colors. Also, can you please have a setting that enables/disables explosion debris for creative mode only?

    Taming animals honestly doesn’t sound fun. Instead of animals spawning, I would like that the animals actually mate, then an animal spawns.
    I would also like to see books. They would make building adventure worlds much easier.
    Maybe armor too but I’m not very excited about it.

    I have noticed a bug in my downloaded community worlds. When ever I’m on a downloaded word, the game crashes every few minutes which is very frustrating. This doesn’t happen on the worlds I created myself. Anyone less having this problem? Please fix this SC.
