Disappearing World Names

I am really baffled by this one.

To be fair, in 1.26 I made a change to the way singleplayer worlds list gets populated (you may have noticed the “scanning worlds” box). But for the life of me I don’t see a way this could have screwed things up. And I looked long and hard.

Anyway, I have reverted to the old method just for testing purposes and made a new apk:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zq7m5oqme05bbz2/com.candyrufusgames.survivalcrafttrial-Signed.apk?dl=1

This is an APK of Survivalcraft Demo 1.26.2.0, with the old method restored.

If you are experiencing the blank world names problem, could you please download and install this APK, and see if the problem goes away? Thanks!

    Hopefully this bug gets resolved. I haven’t encountered it on my Nexus 5 and i haven’t received the update on my iPad Air so no problems there.
    I’ll test the 1.26 version on my Nexus and try to encounter the problem

    Hey Kaalus, I’m not experiencing the problem, I got the update yesterday, and all my world names were still there, I have a Kindle Fire 3rd generation. Hope this helps.

    I’m baffled by the fact that you did not add an option for left handed controls, that is the up,down,left,right control pad/buttons on the right side, as it is and an option on minecraft PE

      can you please stop posting the same text In EVERY post?

      I am acutely aware of this deficiency – sorry if it seems like I am ignoring you. The problem is at the moment there is text baked into move/look controls, so it’s impossible to flip them without redesigning the entire system. I simply did not have time to do that for 1.26.

    Cant tell u if this works, because app crash when i try to import my world from dropbox or sd card… Ill sent u link to my world, so u can try it urself…

      You can’t import because it’s a demo version – it shouldn’t crash but display a dialog saying that you can’t do it. Thanks for the world you sent me – I’ll check it out, but have you seen the missing world names with the downloaded APK?

        I created couple worlds in this demo app and it looks like it working fine.

        • Posted December 13, 2014 at 23:10 | Permalink

          Can you please remind me what device do you have and which version of Android you’re running (the one that exhibits the problem)? I used to remember that from old times, but sadly now forgot :-)

    Big issue with Cruel mode… well, it’s just not as difficult as it use to be. I use to enjoy the thrill of trying to survive and fight for my life, but now it’s so…. easy. During the day it’s relatively safe, and go go inside at night. H
    ave you considered making ants? Like if your “home” has dirt floors, ant hills could potentially spawn in it… like weeds do, but ants can appear that hurt you. Obviously they would Spawn elsewhere throughout the world. Maybe also a snake or scorpion variant too. A rabbit spawned could wreck havoc on fenced in gardens.

    Lastley, maybe animals like rhinos could knock down or bash through fenses/walls. And wolves could dig under fences if it’s just dirt and not rock.

      Yeah, and perhaps you could skewer or collect the ants, scorpions, locusts, etc and roast em over a fire.

    I have a Kindle Fire HD, and it is working fine. Slight lag, but I don’t think it has anything to do with this.

    Kaalus how about posting a vote like you did for moving pad/button? You can ask to those who’s having the bug what device you’re using. That way you will know which devices are having the bug and maybe it will help you figuring out the problem.
    Hope this helped.

    Kaalus, I have not encountered the disappearing world name bug. (using alcatel c3)

    Regarding the animal aggression, I noticed one night while it was a full moon and werewolves were about, that the lions and the werewolves were working together. Since aggression is released to make the game more realistic, I don’t think werewolves and lions should be so chummy.

    For playability reasons, I understand why you can’t make them fight each other all the time because they are the main predators, but at least give them a 20-50% chance of attacking each other, just like how you made docile cows able to retaliate by chance.

    Also, i don’t think making the predators run from you during the day is such a good idea because they only attack at night, and everyone instinctively sleeps at night. I’m not saying revert that change, but instead make it a chance they’ll attack instead of making the lions constantly running away from the player. They’re lions and they should be feared regardless of the time of day.

    This is not a glitch, but just for fun saying, I went all the way where the world coordinates become negative (EX: -1, -1) and the whole world beyond that point becomes untouchable! XD

      Toward the ocean or land

    The reason I say it’s not a glitch is because there is no reason someone would go to that point, which took me about 15 minutes to go to.

    Sorry for my english, it is not very good, maybe i could help with this problem. My world’s name disappeared, but when i’ve changed visibility range, and go back to world, then click ”quit”, and then go to world’s screen, world’s name appear correctly. I even upload it on dropbox. But i’ve noticed when i quit game and start it again, world’s name disappear again. So I always change visibility range to make world’s name visible, but only in current game session. When i start new game world’s name disappear as usual. Hope i could help to solve the problem.

      Dear Elena, thank you for the info. Can you share which device are you using and which version of Android is it running?

      • Posted December 13, 2014 at 13:29 | Permalink | Reply

        I use asus memo pad model k00a(me302c). Android version 4.2.2 . Hope it helps ) about a game: i also noticed that if i do so (change visibility range and quit), all the world’s names appear at once. Not only one, they all appear and everything begin to work corectly until i close the game. If i start it again i must do so (as i described) again. So using that i can play as usual. )

    I found a typo: In the crafting page for iron leggings it says “Make armored leggins from iron and fur leggins.” What are “leggins”?
