Killer coal chunks

There is a bug in 1.25 version of the game, where throwing mundane items (such as coal chunks) will deal disproportionate amount of damage. It is a case of silly omission on my part when adding bows/crossbows, and is being fixed for 1.26, so don’t worry. It won’t stay like this.

Thanks to Mrshots and others reporting this on the forums!

    I didn’t know about this bug. Sad….could have been useful:(
    And kaalus, in the post Animals Aggresion you said the predators will attack steeds from 1.26 because of new AI. But why would they attack steeds when they don’t drop anything? Does it mean they will drop something from 1.26 or that predators will attack prey no matter they drop food or not?
    Thanks for the great game!can’t wait for next update

      Wolves tend to kill horses in real life (I live on a farm)

        Wolves won’t attack wild mustangs though.

        • Posted November 24, 2014 at 19:52 | Permalink

          That depends, is the mustang alone, or in a herd? Is it sick or injured? How many wolves are there? No animal is without competition. And where did you hear that wolves don’t attack mustangs? They kill moose if they have a big pack

          We don’t even have breeds in this game so that fact doesn’t really apply here

        Oh, i thought that any item that is not in your possession could do it. What if you put a feather in a cannon and launched it? Would it take health from you? (I realise this has nothing to do with the bug, since if I’m understanding correctly, only affects throwables)

        • Posted November 25, 2014 at 10:31 | Permalink

          hmm. idk, maybe a feather can kill you when launched from cannon. I think I’ll investigate further

    There’s another bug with the ricochet after throwing gunpowder into a copper/iron cannon.

    When I threw gunpowder in the barrel it bounced back very strong or it started ricocheting off all the walls.

    Kaalus, you should really make an option that allows world map creators to keep other people from re-uploading their worlds because it is taking so much space in the community content.

  25. Posted November 24, 2014 at 05:14 | Permalink | Reply

    Another suggestion, it would really help us if tags or categories (such as adventure, show case, etc.) were added to community content worlds to make it easier to search worlds.

    How about the arrow and the bolt shooting cause every time I leave out at day I get attack and when I shoot at the lion it shoots back at me I know the update aint here but I’m sick of geting hit back I have to stay far away from crossbow shoots but the bow it hits and bounce down sometime it hit me but I just want that arrow to stick at it like a wood and when it disappear and then I collect my arrow/bolts just like that but that may take years for u to know how I feel about this weapon but do what u do kaalus to keep this game happy €:

    Kaalus I have found two bugs with the weight system. To measure weight in survival craft, you must connect a pressure plate to a display. I took a medium keg, and it weighed 8 but throwing another keg on top of it didn’t change the weight. I’d think that two of sobering would change the weight. Also, a small keg weighs as much as a medium, and the large I’d the same. I guess the latter may have to do with launching kegs(which is reality hard to do with a cannon) but maybe make the smaller kegs weigh less

      I ment something, not sobering, and is not I’d

        And another bug. I accidentally jumped off a mountain in cruel mode. Thinking that the world was lost, I exited right before hitting the ground. When I got back on later, the game reset my velocity. I can jump off mountains and survive because of this

        • Posted November 24, 2014 at 13:08 | Permalink

          And I don’t have to wait, just exit the world and come back instantly after going to the menu, if the game has to reload the world, it resets your velocity

          Either way, if it saves every 20 secs or not (I know it saves when you exit as well) if you jump off a cliff and don’t die its a bug. And I’m not being mean, just retaliatory

        • Posted November 27, 2014 at 01:13 | Permalink

          Just the way to tell it saves every 20 secs is that if you place a block then the game crashes the block will either not be there or it will be there and you have it in your inventory still

        What?? I was not talking to u lol about the missspell I was talking about mine and like I said the games save every 20″second so if u exit out before the 20 sec has saved it does not save also I dont see what your problem ia with me up there telling u to shut up I was joking so stop getting butt hurt and man up

          I’m not agreeing with either of you. I’m just stating the 20 second saving fact was true. The way you said “shut up” did sound mean though just next time say “haha” or something to show you’re joking. But don’t worry no harm ment so y’all just forget it happened

    Kaalus I know a good bit of bugs I would like if you could fix:
    1. Camels and donkeys can jump over all kinds or fences even when you are not on them
    2. You cannot jump gates as ment
    3. Most/all animals can jump gates
    4. Firing arrows or bolts out of the viewing distance freezes them until the area is loaded
    5. If you shoot a bird and it flies out of the viewing distance, then when the area is loaded the bird is resurrected
    6. Piranhas no longer jump out of the water at times when they are attacking as shown in the video “Don’t Swim in Tropical Lakes”

    These bugs are for the IPad 2 so I was hoping you could fix them. But please fix the fence/gate bugs.

    I didn’t know where else to post this but I hope one of the forum admins see this. I wanted to post a new topic on the forum but I was having trouble. I would click new topic. It would redirect me to the login screen. I would log in. When it was done, it sent me back to the home page of the forums and I was no longer logged in. I’ve tried several other login methods but with no luck. It wouldn’t let me stay logged in to post a topic. I cannot use the forum to comment or post a new topic anymore. And I hope nobody else has been having this issue.

    Meanwhile, what I wanted to post is this:

    If anyone has access to the animal skins I would like them. I’m experimenting with animating Survivalcraft in Blender. And I need the animal textures to put on the figures I created. Thanks! :-)
