Whale Watching

Some time ago I tweeted that I am working on a cool, small feature to do with whales. Here it is:

http://youtu.be/40hxT1Lkn7U

I could not resist adding this little gem, even though it took me an entire day to tweak the blowing particle system and add a new AI behavior to make whales surface.

In 1.25 and earlier, whales are fish, which is embarrassingly unrealistic. No longer! In 1.26, it will be possible to drown a whale.

To digress a bit, the AI in Survivalcraft is a fairly complicated affair, but it’s structured into multiple, simple behaviors, making it easy to maintain and extend. Only one behavior may be active at any time for a creature. As a result, each behavior competes for “activity” with others. The behaviors do it by advertising an “importance value”, and the behavior with highest one is activated.

For example, breathing reflex behavior in whales bases its importance on amount of air left in the whale lungs. When a whale is near drowning, the importance of breathing behavior is so high that it will trump anything else. The whale will abandon whatever it was doing, including chasing or running away from the player, in order to surface. As soon as the air is replenished, breathing importance drops to zero and next most important behavior is resumed.

      I bet you could use that to make killing whales easier so you can get clothing or something. Good work ;-)

      Hi. Its me parten. I think the blowing particle behavior might cause some lag on slower devices. Can you please have an option to turn it on or off.

    Reblogged this on Ultimate Survivalcraft Community and commented:
    Whales will be separate from fish in the fact that they need air to breath or they’ll down. I don’t know what will drop out of the whales, but I bet you’ll be able to make clothing. I can’t wait for the next update!

        Jonathan don’t mean to sound rude but leather comes from any animal with a pelt cows are just the most commonly used for leather because it is domesticated. But where I live bears and coyotes are the main source of leather

    Hey KAALUS could u add in campfires that take 1.5 or double amount of time a furnace would cook. And make the furnace more complicated to make. Just an idea. And could u change wolf, tiger, lion etc… AI To attack cows like they would in real life. Again just an idea. No need for offensive language.

    Honestly, I’m disappointed. Even though it looks good, and cool, but… Thats it, it just LOOKS cool. But I cant and haven’t achieved was Kaalus has, so I can’t complain. I wish kaalus would post more often too. I have completely forgotten about Survivalcraft, even though its a great game. Its just missing some major points…. I still love the game though, I just haven’t played in a while.

      What do you mean you are disappointed? He hadn’t even planned on adding this in the first place! This was something that just came to his head and he decided to make an extra. And if you read and watched the video closely, its not just for looks! The whales will actually come up for air now if they’re about to drown! I think it’s is a great addition to survivalcraft.

      I was hoping he would make some sorta weight to weigh down the whale. Like shark hunters use barrels to bring a shark up to the surface, I’d though he’d make little….rope and stones, to weight it down like the rope would tie up the whales and the stone would drag them below and drown them

    Okay, first post here, btw. While playing Survivalcraft i’ve been jotting down a few ideas that i’ve had for the game, and I know a lot of them have already been requested a million times here before and are already in other block crafters, but yeah, i’d just like to throw my two cents in and add my voice to the chorus. Note that this list is pretty long and in no particular order. I also know that some of this would be a lot of work to implement, so my heart won’t break if none of this is ever included into the game, I thought that it might be fun to post my own ideas. Alrighty here it is.

    – You have weather, you have the day/night cycle…. what about Seasons? I’ve never heard that requested before, so there it is.
    – Speaking of weather, i’d like to see Natural Disasters, earthquakes, floods, ‘naders, that sorta thing.
    – Minecraft stuff like Brewing, Enchantments, Experience, Achievements, ect.
    – The ability to further Customize the User Interface, like changing the color, or rearranging the buttons and hotkeys, ect. Or maybe create and upload our own designs, like with skins, textures, ect.
    – Built-in Skins, Textures, and World Editors, somewhere, like at the main menu, or for each world under Edit or Change, or whatever it is, I forget.
    – Ability to Create, Change, Modify, and Upload In-Game Music, Sounds, Ambiance, ect. Functions within the app’s files like skins or textures.
    – In-Game Maps that update as you walk, either as a craftable item, or a button on the UI like POV and sneak.
    – Further survival-themed challenges – Weather Exposure, Disease, Rotten/Spoiled Food, and Pests.
    – Real Star Constellations, if they aren’t already, Visible Galaxies, ect,
    – Airborne ambiance like Tiny Buzzing Insects, Falling Leaves, Atmosphereic Distotions in Extreme Heat, ect.
    – Genrated Structures like Abandoned Building, Mineshaft, Castle, Town, Factory, Tomb, Temple, Shrine, ect.
    – Randomly Spawning Chests w/ Random Items.
    – Breeding and Pet Taming, c’mon already, lol.
    – Biomes like Mesa, Glacier, Canyon, Ravine, Salt Flat, Sequoya Forest, Petrifed Forest, Volcano, Plateau, Rugged Cliff, Thermal Springs/Geysers, Deep Jungle, ect.
    – Fishing, Fishing Poles, Carp, Perch, Sturgeon, Salmon, Pike, Carp, Cod, Catfish, Trout, Tuna, Swordfish, Eel, Barracuda, Sperm Whale, Narwhal, Manatee, Sea Horse, Turtles, Flounder, Pufferfish, Lionfish, Crab, Lobster, Conch, Oyster, Scallop, Squid, Octopus, Jellyfish. As well as marine blocks like Coral and Kelp.
    – Mammals – Kangaroo, Koala, Otter, Beaver, Squirrel, Porcupine, Bats, Sloth, Armadillo, Rabbit, Dogs, Cats, Fox, Panda, Seal, Walerus, Raccon, Skunk, Cheetah, Panther, Elephant, Deer, Goat, Sheep, Antelope, Llama, Pig, Hippo, Lemur, Monkey, Gorilla, Buffalo, Ram.
    – Birds – Penguin, Albatross, Pelican, Stork, Ibis, Flamingo, Swan, Vulture, Falcon, Hawk, Eagle, Pheasant, Quail, Turkey, Crane, Dove, Parrot, Roadrunner, Owl, Hummingbird, Woodpecker, Sparrow, Blackbird, Blue-Jay, Robin, Condor, Peacock, Chicken.
    – Reptiles – Iguana, Komodo Dragon, Chameleon, Python, Viper, Anaconda, Rattlesnake, Cobra, Alligator, Crocodile, Turtles.
    – Insects – Dragonfly, Grasshopper, Locust, Stick/Leaf Insect, Cockroach, Termite, Butterfly, Moth, Beetle, Ant, Bee, Wasp, Fly, Worm, Scorpion, Spider, Mosquito, Centi/Millipede.
    – Fantasy Mobs – Zombie, Vampire, Ghast, Mummy, Skeleton, Mech, Sentry, Golem, Gel, Mimic, Ahriman, Harpy, Goblin, Troll, Chimera, Sphinx, Pixie, Fairy, Pegasus, Unicorn, Nymph, Imp, Banshee, Elf, Orc, Dwarf, Gryphon, Wyvern, Drake, Dragon, Basilisk, Gargoyle, Sahagin, Pheonix.
    – Plants – Algae, Mushrooms, Truffles, Moss, Ferns, Horsetails, Ash, Bamboo, Boabab, Cypress, Elm, Acacia, Juniper, Palm, Willow, Yew.
    – Crops/Foodstuffs – Apple, Orange, Lemon, Banana, Cherry, Strawberry, Grape, Carrot, Potato, Tomato, Corn, ect.
    – Ores – Gold, Silver, Tin, Platinum, Zinc, Lead, ect.
    – Jewels – Sapphire, Ruby, Emerald, Pearl, Amthnyst, Opal, Garnet, ect.

    Wow, that list was…. much longer than I anticipated, I kept coming up with more and more stuff as I went along, there’s more, but it’s best to spare everyone the further eyesore of reading it all, most of it is hardly anything original anyway. If I had to pick some personal favorites from the list, I guess Mesas (so beautiful, but deadly just like me ;) ), Llamas ( friggn sweet), Pheonix (fat chance I know, it’s Survivalcraft not Fantasycraft) and Sapphires. But Armor was always the one i’ve been pulling the most for, so im already happy. Multiplayer? Eh.

      You suggested “brewing”, “enchanting” and “fantasy mobs”. I can assure you this will not happen. The only ideas i like out of your list was the different fish types(some of them), ores, some jewels, a couple of the animals, and some your suggested biomes which are actually mostly geographical features. I don’t think we need music in the background because honestly that just doesn’t make sense to me, and the only randomly generated structures i would like to see are abandoned tribes/towns, other survivors with small houses/tents, and perhaps ancient ruins like Aztec pyramids or destroyed colosseum type things. Also stop suggesting unrealistic things because SC is focused towards realism and stop suggesting EVERYTHING from minecraft.

        Its nice to know what you like, thank you. I would appreciate if you didnt try to commamd me to stop suggesting things, calm down buddy. I just posted my opinions is all, no need to get all bent out of shape and go all nazi on me. You suggesting I should stop suggesting things you dont personally like or just things from Minecraft, cause Mimecraft’s got blocks. What’s realistic about werewolves?

          Ok ok, I’m sorry. I just get tired of people always suggesting things Kaalus said not to, because he himself said SC is focused towards realism(I have no idea why he made werewolves though(although, they are quite the challenge :D)). Now, when i said not to suggest things from minecraft, i meant i don’t want people suggesting ideas that will make SurvivalCraft too similar to minecraft.

        No, just suggesting for fun. Just sharing my opinion, and I explcitly said that I know most of it would not be implemented as well. In fact, I also said that if none of it was used, I personally wouldn’t care. And I certaintly never said that I wanted ALL of it included, either. Where did you get that I wanted all of it, or even most of it? It was literally a list of possible suggestions, nothing more than that. Man, didn’t expect to have to defend myself. Anyway, its still a great list and im glad I shared.

    Kaalus, have you considered creating an integrated circuit chip (ICC)? Essential an electric that references a “virtual” space, say 25x25x25 or larger, that would essential day space?
    – You could have two versions, much like the A/D & D/A electrics, with 1 back input & 4 side outputs, and 4 inputs with 1 output.
    – So instead of players creating electrical monstrosities under buildings or all over walls, they could be neatly tucked in put a device combo that could take as little space as sensor/switch, ICC, & light/device.
    – Lastly, you can import and export these so they could be shared among players and rated.

    Is this concept even possible Kaalus? Or are there current coding limitations?

      I know! I hate having to wait, but the longer i wait the better survivalcraft becomes! New animals are always so cool because they could literally be any animal! Who would have guessed that a gnu would be a new animal from that previous update??? I’m hoping for something poisonous! Maybe not in this update, but the next one since Kaalus seems to be leaning towards making SC more realistic and have new machanics now!

    my heart wait with survivalcraft so i never delete it or hate it in any aspect, it is in my tablet since ostrich update(the time whend i discover it).Kaalus always impress me with unespected features and my first impression was “it look with quality”, birds, the world color, day and night, nice run animation, exellent game in deep details and general aspect of the gameplay. if a game is in my tablet it’s an exellent game(kind of perfect or favorite).

      I agree with everything plus a lot more added things to why I like it but the running animation is not the best for the player but you don’t see yourself run so I don’t care

    I just realized, if whales have blubber, i have to go very very very very far to get to the shore, then wait till a whale is close to beaching, then i have to kill it 0_0
    Well, this will be one heck of a challenge(which is what i want)! CANT WAIT TOO MUCH LONGER!!!!!!!

    Updated my game today! Play it!

      I think I’d like to see armour like minecraft. Maybe enchanting, potions, and monsters too that would be awesome cause survival craft is better then minecraft. But these ideas would maybe make it more fun.

    I just realized why it is taking Kaalus so long on clothes and armor even though he said on twitter it’s working perfectly now. He might be adding animal armor (horse, camel, donkey) or maybe just because the over heating and freezing is harder than he thought

  54. Posted October 24, 2014 at 22:59 | Permalink | Reply

    Animal armor would be cool. Although it probably is becuase heat and cold is really hard to code. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I think we would be the first block game to have heat or cold!

    • Posted October 25, 2014 at 04:41 | Permalink | Reply

      Hi, actually block heads already utilizes that.. Along with fishing…

      Also… If you read the clothing blog.. Kaalus dosent say he’s adding actual armor.. He says clothing (like armor) meaning it will have some protection.

      Hi, it’s probably too late for a Halloween release.. But maybe something might be included.. I’m hoping for a thanksgiving update.. That would be new and I’m sure the community would love it.

      • Posted October 25, 2014 at 15:57 | Permalink | Reply

        He isn’t American therefore he won’t make a Thanksgiving update but last year he was late adding graves so he might still add something. If he does though it probably won’t be unrealistic it’ll probably be a bat or something of the sort

        • Posted October 25, 2014 at 19:14 | Permalink

          Hi, yes he might not be American… But if you have followed this blog in the past few years he has added two Halloween updates already not to mention a Christmas update as well.. Other bloggers can confirm this.. Or just look up past updates.

        • Posted October 25, 2014 at 19:17 | Permalink

          ..sure thanksgiving maybe a America only holiday.. But his trend has been the most popular of American holidays… Hence maybe a thanksgiving update… But who know…

        • Posted October 26, 2014 at 16:04 | Permalink

          Halloween isn’t an American only holiday though and Christmas at least used to be religion holiday (atheist celebrate it too for some reason) so I know they’ve been in past updates but Thanksgiving has nothing to do with him in any way that’s why I said he probably won’t make a Thanksgiving update see what I mean?

        • Posted November 1, 2014 at 21:11 | Permalink

          I don’t see nothing wrong with atheists celebrating Christmas. Sure, they don’t believe in gods but they can still celebrate the pagan holiday, right? And Halloween is not a religious event, just to clear it up. :)

      • Posted November 1, 2014 at 21:08 | Permalink | Reply

        Thanksgiving is an american holiday. Halloween is not american only and Christmas is celebrated on other countries too, not just in america.

        • Posted November 2, 2014 at 01:25 | Permalink

          I know Christmas and Haloween are not just American holidays that is actually my point Thanksgiving is an American only holiday so why would Kaalus add anthing for it. Btw the reason I said its weird about atheist celebrating Christmas is because it’s a religion thing not to hate

    There needs to be new biomes like taiga, pine tree forest, maybe different smaller plants like bushes, cedar trees, maybe red soil for a biome, smaller mammals like rabbits, rats, maybe insects that eat crops like grasshoppers, fire flys that light up at night and blink, dragon flys that stay around ponds or lakes, cattails that grow by ponds or lakes, maybe fresh water and salt water…pond water can be put in a bucket then in a furnace to make fresh water, drinking boiled salt water will restore the players health faster for a period of time, water also needs to be a vital resource for animals and the player instead of just food resources, another idea would be paintable wooden doors, also more of a decorative selection for houses like couches, seats, tables, small lightbulbs, shelves, bamboo plant that the player can use to make spears or fishing poles…worms can be found when digging dirt to put on fishing poles and catch bass, also more of a graphic feature, what if at sunrise or sunset the world would have a orange tint or when it’s rainy a grey tent. Also make the water in ponds less blue and more clear or murky…more of a greyish blue, crops like Kane for cattle or cotton for clothes, slanted blocks for roofs, musket for hunting or a long barreled rifle with a pop-up site, possibly even better explosions with smoke and small particles, the fire needs to have the 512 by 512 format because it looks out dated compared to other blocks, also less spawn rate of dangrrous animals in the morning…that just gets annoying after awhile. Possibly white-tailed deer that roam the forest, also breeding of animals and baby animals. I like the progress your making so far!

    You should make it where you can’t be set on fire in creative. That gets really annoying, especially when you are making a parkour above lava. If you accidentally tap the fly button, you will fall into the lava, and have to either search the world for water, which takes a while, or get it from a bucket, which usually destroys stuff.

    Nonhostile animals should run away from the player when they spot the player.I don’t always like to feel safe in my house, rhinos should be able to break glass, Lions and tigers should be able to claw down doors. It would also be cool to make the grass make cricket noises, The water make frog noises, and the leaves to make chirping bird noises, when the player walks in tallgrass a rustling sound Is made. hostile animals should attack you once they see you. It’s unrealistic to walk right beside a wolf. I’d like it to be more rare to be able to get close to a nonhostile animal. you would have to use a long-range weapon. Also make hostile and nonhostile animals not be able to detect you if you’re hiding behind a tree or a wall. Snakes should be added and make a poison effect and slowly kill the player

    I definitely do not want spawner eggs for the animals that currently don’t have any.
    I have some fun ideas for the game. :)
    – Pumpkins should drop pumpkin seeds. Once roasted, pumpkin seeds should be edible. You should be able to plant pumpkin seeds. Summary: Pumpkin Farming
    – Wild blackberries and wild strawberries should be added. They could grow on bushes.
    – Monkeys and gorillas/chimpanzees should be added. Gorillas should be hostile, chimps should be hostile if attacked, and monkeys should be non- hostile. Monkeys and chimps should drop raw bacon, and gorillas should drop leather and lots of raw bacon. Monkeys should live in trees in the jungle.
    – Fishing rods should be able to be crafted out of wooden/iron posts and strings. The better the material, the longer they should last. You should have to bait the rod.
    – Decomposing of the animals should take longer. You should be able to speed it up by hitting it with a machete or using worms.
    – Worms should be something that fish eat and you can use them to bait fishing rods. They can also be used to decompose animals faster. Some dirt blocks should contain worms.
    – Deer or antelope. They should drop leather and lots of bacon. They should look different from horses and zebras.
    – Buffalo. Should drop leather and lots of bacon. You should also be able to milk the females. They should act like cattle (live in herds, have males that are hostile, especially if a female is hurt, etc.)
    – Rabbits, beavers, groundhogs. Should drop small amounts of bacon and leather if it’s a beaver.
    – Cougars/mountain lions. They should live mainly in mountainous areas. Could look like tigers, just golden.
    – Foxes. Should drop nothing and should be either non- hostile or hostile if attacked. They should look different from wolves and coyotes.
    – Certain animals should be able to break down certain blocks. For example, there is no point in having an iron door if wooden doors do the same thing or why waste time with bricks for building if wood does the same thing?
    – You should be able to tame coyotes and wolves. Once tamed, they should wear a green collar. You should be able to make leashes out of leather. Tap a tamed dog with a leash and you should be able to drag them around. Tamed dogs should protect you ( maybe while on leash.) Dogs should only be tame for a day and should become normal in the morning. If you hit a tame dog, they should either run away or become normal.
    – There should be wind and other natural disasters, like flooding and hurricanes.
    – Animal breeding and multiplayer (have been suggested many times )
    – There should be villagers and/or other people on the main island and some other islands. You should be able to trade with these people. They should have houses and should be hostile if attacked (not trying to make them sound like animals.) They should also be hostile if you enter their houses without permission. You should be able to converse with them in some way, shape, or form.
    – Hippos. Should drop bacon and should be extremely hostile. Should attack you even from a distance. Should mainly live in desert oasis and water in the jungle, should be land animals too.
    -Crocodiles/alligators. Same as hippos.
    – Koalas. Should be non hostile and nothing at all. They should live in trees.
    – Trees should have branches.
    – There should be an Austrailian land formation.
    – Kangaroos. Should drop leather and meat.
    – Elephants. Should live and act like cattle and drop meat.

    Thanks for reading! :)

    Bolts and arrows should get stuck In the animal…not bouncing off because it’s unrealistic and I always get hit again by the bolt I shot at an animal..birds it should go all the way through, also breakable blocks like glass or marble…I could see it bouncing off marble but it should go through glass

    It is great to see the world become so intelligent over time! I realised that when I saw that whale.
    With intelligent I meant the animals and how naturally everything reacts to you and the environment, funny how animals look at you when you walk by, etc.
    That requires alot of scripting and programming, just a simple thing like an animal face can prove an enormous task, programming is more than meets the eye!
    It is an art! Something to stand still, and think about when you see things like these happening. (-:
    I hope Kaalus knows there are people out there that appreciate these details, but I guess he does now. (-;
