More visibility

I keep working on the temperature stuff. It’s nice how lighting a fire or enclosing a thermometer in a box makes the reading go up. In 1.25 thermometer was tied to fixed environment temperature and not affected by such things. And remember, you can use thermometers as electric devices, so it opens up way for some nice temperature-dependent mechanisms. For example the door will only open if you light a fire in front of it or make magma flow near it.

The next thing to tackle is temperature effects on the player. I spent a long time thinking about it. My worry is that adding too many complex effects will make the game too tedious. You don’t feel cold/hot in the game as you do in real life, you’ll need to rely on messages and on-screen effects to even realize that you are freezing. I don’t want to overdo it, it must be something simple that is not annoying, but at the same time having a definite impact on the gameplay.

That’s still in progress, though.

In the meantime I am adding a new notch to visibility range slider: 256. My recent memory usage improvements and general trend of devices getting faster makes it worthwhile. It makes a lot of difference, have a look (animated gif):

VisibilityRange256

 

256 is equal to “far” viewing distance in desktop Minecraft, and some computers struggle with it. So it’s not too bad that we can now do it in Survivalcraft on your phone :-)

      I don’t think so really the update depens on the temperature part because what is the point of clothes otherwise? And other than that beluga whales and new UI won’t cut it. I think he should just finish what he’s doing, trust him he won’t take much longer.

    Kaalus, how about for freezing to death, you see snowflakes appear around the sides of your phone (like in Battlefield4 if you’ve played on Op: Locker)? Then eventually you would take damage and realize your dying.
    And for over-heating, perhaps you see perspiration/sweat appear on your screen and you start panting like when you over-sprint. And maybe the screen starts looking “wavey” like the heat is really “getting to your head”. This stuff wouldn’t being annoying and would be very helpful!

    Also Kaalus, since we can now light fires for warmth, instead of having to need a coal block, can logs burn a bit longer now? Perhaps for a whole day? You’re making this game so much the way i want to see it i cant believe it!!! Keep up the amazing work!

    Kaalus, I think farming and bread should be slightly changed. I would like to suggest bread slices. As of now, my farm is very tedious and impractical for the small yield of bread I get. If I could get about 7 slices out of each loaf, however, farming might become more useful. It becomes hard to make cool builds in challenging because I consistently have to hunt. There should also be more stuff to farm. Carrots, potatoes and corn are a good start.

    Keep up the good work Kaalus!

      I made a pretty cool one, in challenging. I didn’t really farm, I just would set a day for hunting and get a week of food. I now have more than a chest of bird meat

Getting 256 block visibility to work on mobile when Mojang can’t get a lot of computers to work it properly? Wow. Pretty sure Survivalcraft is going to be superior to Minecraft one day :) Awesome.

    Hey kaalus about the temperature. How about you add sound effects like when your cold you start to burr or hot you start to pant but the sound effect comes on every like 4 min or so.

    It would better if survival craft have fire woods and make a fire place for warm to keep animals away and for temperature at night its better than running from predators and diging a ditch at night but its about time we got temperature in this game I hope the fire wood camp update in the future but the block coal kinda feels like fire wood but its nonstop fire crackleing.

    How about making a small icon that change spectrum(red to blue)? You can guess the temperature by looking at its color and if the temperature gets fatal like too hot or too cold you get a message.
    Just a thought.

    Maybe the temperature effects on the player should be relatively passive? Like you move slightly slower when cold, break blocks slower, etc

    Yes yes yes Kaalus, I was going to ask to improve visibility, not that it was bad.. Just that I remember you had to hold back because of certain devices limitations.. But as technology improves and players get improved devices, it’s awesome to see you add even more crazy visibility!

    ..could you also consider making it so the hydrometer triggers to rainfall and water by proximity

    Also for the climate effects.. Cold weather could affect the player by slowing them down a bit.. Attacking their stamina… A Slight sluggishness..until they get some warmth…

    And for the heat exhaustion, stamina could be degraded also.. Shade or a nice drink of water could remedy that;)

    Anywho.. Thank you for posting more often.. We all appreciate it.. Because every post is like Christmas morning around here.

    Hey, Kaalus. Gonna post this again in hopes you or other authority of the forums sees this.

    I still can’t comment or post new topics on the forum. What happens is this:

    I log in on the side (I’m on mobile) and it works. I go to any topic or create a new one and it directs me to the login screen. If I go back, I’m no longer logged in. If I log in again it directs me to the home page of the forum where I am no longer logged in. I can’t seem to figure out a way to stay logged in.

    I thought perhaps it was a bug with the mobile version. So I tried to click the desktop button at the bottom to try the desktop version instead. It usually works. But now it takes its sweet time to load and still comes up as the mobile one.

    I hope this isn’t happening to other people and I’m hoping you or one of the forum people can figure it out. Thanks :-)

    in that situation: think on rebalance the hunger speed or the day speed!, its the reason for leave SC sleeping more than before but i want play it as well.let say you are in the snow biome and after 2 SC days then you cant resist the temperature so you need have spesific requirement for live in there and one of those are bear clothe but that is not enough because if you want resist permanent then you need a fireplace, fireplace can be coal block in fire. in desert you need water but just because the players gonna exploit a lake or river then is better make a balance of requirement but not too hard at all, dont use bear clothe in desert, a filter similar to the crafting table where you imput the bucket of water and it become pure water. the basic biome (the green one) can be in the middle of snow and desert, you can have cold some days and need be active on hunting before night because there is a chance of be a cold in night or something like that. well that is my idea so you can think on that maybe and consider 20% of this. now you can make 3 type of clothe model and those are: tank top shirt for desert, normal t shirt for normal biome, long t shirt or jacket for snow biome. after future review of how people react to the temperature stuff then you can consider add more type of material for a more details in it like diferent material for the clothe, hats and colors

    I know this is thinking ahead, but i think the next update needs new/improved activities! Here they are:

    -Fishing
    -Rods + fresh/salt water fish (catfish, pike, tuna)

    -More Construction
    -New blocks like concrete,

    -Gathering
    -More plants, foods on trees/bushes

    -Mining
    -Ores such as gold, platinum, titanium

    -Transportation
    -Rail Carts(only for transportation of players), mine carts(only for transportation of resources/items), bikes

    -Farming
    -Corn, pumpkins, potatoes

    That is quite a lot of stuff to add so it would probably be over a few updates, but as long as some of it gets added eventually, I’ll be happy :)

      True about that but those dang tirgers is sneaky some time but I hate those lions cause they be haveing whole pack of lions outside last month I seen 14 lions just waiting for me but I’m glad the lion will attack other animals for food instead of me when this update

        14? I think you are exaggerating. I’ve never seen more than 5, and if 14spawned no more animals could

          And if you kill them all sometimes they don’t respawn

          I agree 14 sounds like he exaggerated unless he didn’t kill any lions the previous day but then it’s his own stupidity for not killing them.

        I dont know if this is a bug. I counted twenty-one wolves behind my house. I never go behind the house because its impossible to kill all of them.

    I think that you should add a “World Options” button to the settings menu, only when you are in a world. In there you could change the texture pack, skin, time setting, weather setting, and all that stuff. You should also add spawn eggs for orca, white bull, etc. But they could be optional, only changable in the world settings. You should also add mob breeding, and make it where there are girl animals and boy animals. Animals should be able to freeze or burn if they leave the climate they’re used to. You should be able to build huge ships that you can use to sail the Survivalcraft Seas. And you should add cars. You could also make it where you can control horses directly in creative mode, instead of issuing “commands” to them. There are a lot of other improvements you could make to creative mode only: You can’t get set on fire, animals will never attack you, and you can use a button to teleport to a certain set of coordinates. Speaking of coordinates, the display should be always shown in creative, optionally shown in harmless and adventure, and never shown in challenging or cruel. Also, the site looks kind of plain. You should make it look cooler.

      And you should increase the height limit to 256.

      He confirmed he wouldn’t add spawners for orcas, belugas etc. So don’t ask.

    Kali’s, you should feel good you added spiked planks while when Dinnerbone tried to for Minecraft this is what happened

    Spike block
    Spike blocks were originally planned for Beta 1.7, working by extending and retracting spikes (and making them more “spike pistons” than anything), but were replaced by sticky pistons. On May 28, 2012, Dinnerbone stated that he’d like to add spike blocks, but is unsure of how to implement them.

    Please could you add ice pick so instead of destroying the ice block into water it appears in your inventory

    Cool! But isn’t it going to lag tremendously for the smaller devices?

      The viewing distance is changeable in the settings you can still have a 32 block viewing distance. The new 256 viewing distance is for those who can handle it. Understand?

    I would like to see a pegasus or a dragon for a rare rideable, and the only way to get a saddle on one is to sneek up on it like you would a bird. Oh and the dragons could breath fire and the Pegasus could have healing powers or somthing..just an idea

          Werewolves were added before he decided to go for a more realistic gameplay. So whatever you just said will not be added.

    Oh and I thought maybe you could be the first out of all the blocky and sandbox games to add a working TV or a way to make one

    I have a request to make, I was trying to down a charging boar with a bow, it had ran up to about 3 blocks away, my iron tipped shaft hit it in the head, and the arrow shot back at me and killed me after I had 10 days or so of cruel mode. Would it be possible to make it to where the arrow goes into the animal or goes all the way through? If it just goes into the animal, would it be possible to make the animal drop the arrow just like it would say a piece of meat?

    My record on cruel is 61.2 days….I was riding a horse and fell in a trap

    I think the addition of temp well be great. I wounder if the border of the hot bar could change in color related to temp, but still add sound effects that would still let you know if you are to cold or hot. Anyway I am sure what ever Kaalus adds to the game will be top notch.

    Could you give the custom character a name?

  81. Posted January 3, 2015 at 11:22 | Permalink | Reply

    I was wondering because it’s pretty cool for people who do let’s plays and etc to be able to name their avatars… Maybe that could come in the multiplayer update!

    And there’s a bug on iOS (not sure if it’s on android or other platforms) where when you place a torch next to a block while mining it’s hard to identify what the block is. :)

    Would it be possible to create a campfire by putting sticks in a circle and a coal block in the middle? SO that it is accessible early on in the game…
