iOS is out

Apple have finally approved 1.26, just as I started to think it will not come out before Christmas (their cut-off date is today).

The problem is that this is a fairly early version of 1.26, which has a few bugs which have since been fixed on other platforms. Among these bugs is the infamous disappearing world names bug.

Therefore I will very soon release a bugfix release for iOS. Unfortunately there is no chance it will be approved before Christmas or even before New Year. You’ll only see it sometime in early January. The good news is that the bugs in iOS version of 1.26 are not too serious – a few AI and clothing tweaks, and the disappearing world names :-)

Have a great Christmas!

    Hi Kaalus, I’m really so sorry. I just want to give suggestions, although it may sound stupid and impossible. Maybe this proposal is being committed or has been proposed. Or, it may not be accepted immediately. I’m not worth giving this opinion, but I so wanted to give this proposal as Survivalcraft is a game of my choice. This is my proposal:

    1) Place the animal in a suitable biome and not mixed in each biome.

    2) Terminate ‘Animal Spawner’ limited. Many players are tired build cages, but they lost their animals without reason. Arising from Chupacabra ?.

    3) All players love ship !.

    4) If the electrical system can be created by our geniuscrafter character, why not fishing rods and nets to catch fish ?.

    5) If the electrical system can be created, why not item to breathing in the ocean?.

    6) Add myth character of the land, sea and air. (ex: Pixie, sarin, mermaids, gnomes, trolls and many others).

    7) Add Supernatural character. Fun if we play in a thriller. Anyone wants to meet with the mystery Will-‘O-Wisp unexpectedly ?.

    8) Players are entitled to choose what animal their like for riding. However, the risk of harm incurred by themselves. Anyone wants to ride a lion ?.

    9) I hope I can keep the cub since childhood.

    10)Kaalus, you’re creator of this game. You do not need to follow the way Minecraft – A block of only one item that can be placed or affixed. What if put 9 LED lights on the same rectangular block?

    11) Increase the distance between different biome. Distance biome too close and not all love it.

    12) Many are already building their own towns. But useless if our town just a ghost town or city remains because no population unless we are alone. Thus, it is reasonable if we add NPC / AI characters which can manage the stores we build on our instructions. – Trade !.

    13) From left alone in the forest, until we are no longer alone – character NPC / AI

    14) Setting – If a player wants to distance between biome changed, they can.
    – Players can choose whether they want to be in the world: 1. Neutral (Only Animals. Without tale creatures) 2.Folklore (Contains animals and creatures of myth and Supernatural).

    15) It’s great, if the sword or armor and other items can be hung on the wall and every corner. No need to be kept in the refrigerator as a whole.

    Only this that I can share. Sorry if there are wrong word. I am not a perfect man. I’m not Europe or American. Kaalus, the choice is yours. Take the time to increase the quality of this game. You have your own way. – Please make the best at this game. So, the price of $ 19 ++ you provide is reasonable. Thank you.

    Kaalus, I am finding that the weather and clothing implementation is virtually impossible to work with. I am spending all of my time maintaining clothing instead of playing the game. I guess if I just spent time in the deserts and warmer areas it wouldn’t be an issue but digging in caves and going through snowy/frozen areas are impossible. The clothing needs to last 100 times longer, they wear out way, way, way too fast.

    Kaalus……can you change the orca’s behavior a little? They drown because they stay in large group(10~13?) even when they are in wide space. Maybe you can change it so only about 4~6 will stay in one group. Its really annoying when you bring an orca and find two are dead. Belugas are okay but orcas just cover the surface and dont budge, drowning the ones below them. I cant even feed them(each feeding costs about 2orcas)
    Sorry for the english.

    Have a great time!

    Kaalus, can you at some stage look at the content rating system. It really is so stagnant. The content that is number one, will stay number one for ever. I would love it if there were an option to list for top rated recent uploads, let say in the last 3 month or so. The top contents should then also not just be dropped after the period expires. Old contents with high ratings will just stay there for ever and some of them really are not great. They might have been great a long time ago. It is frustrating to post something that always gets 5 stars but disappears after a week. There is such a flood of new stuff that people put on that are less than 200KB (worlds) and really does not contain much. Maybe there could be a way to also filter size of files, for instance top rated large worlds or something.

    By the way, I have created an elevator where you can choose your level via a computer (just one elevator with five floors). I need a few pointers from people. The world is “Best Elevator.” It might soon disappear, but I’ll put it on again.

    I have an iPod 5 touch and sometimes when I get finished typing on a sign it freezes up and I can’t get out of the sign. Then it kicks me off the game. Also mine is really laggy.

    Could you please start working on multiplayer after christmas? If you doadd multiplayer at some point, here’s my suggestion:
    By the way, this is really long, so you might want to copy and paste it somewhere else.

    When you paused the game, there would be a “Start LAN Server” button. This would run a server through the local network without having to mess around with ports. You could also configure some settings such as the game mode that other players would be in. They could connect through a multiplayer screen.
    To stop a LAN server, you could either quit the world or press the “Stop LAN Server” button, which would apperar where Start LAN Server is when the server is already started.
    If you wanted to run an online server, there would be a server app in the Windows 8 Store* (and maybe on macs too) that could be used ro run Survivalcraft servers. People could connect who weren’t on your local network. You would connect to them using the multiplayer screen.
    On the multiplayer screen, similar to community content**, you could select if you wanted it to display LAN servers, online servers, or both types. LAN servers would be searched for automatically, while online servers would have to be specified with IPs and ports. There would be three buttons that were “Connect”, “Add Server”, and “…” (Modify). When adding a server you would enter the IP and the port for it and it would show up in your list. In the modify section you could cange the IP or port, or remove the server from the list.
    The server software would feature a list of servers you could start. You would create them the same way you create worlds in the actual game, except that you would set a port, max player count, and no server skin (explained later). You can also do everything an admin can.
    There would be server admins who would be able to ban and kick players, add players to a whitelist, make other players admins, and change a player’s game mode (or their own), along with other things that you could probably think of. This could all be done through an admin menu in the pause menu. This would be replaced with a player list if you weren’t an admin. On a server, different players could be in different game modes. For example, if I (Luke18033) was an admin in creative and you joined but said that you preferred challenging, I could switch you to challenging without me being put in challenging too.
    You would also have server settings. Where the “Blocks Textures” button was back in 1.24, there could be a “Server Settings” button. In there, you could choose your server skin, server blocks texture, and player name. Server skin and player name would always be used on servers, but server blocks texture would only be used if the server’s selected blocks texture was the default.
    If anything seems like it wouldn’t end up working, please reply.

    *Survivalcraft should become available here
    **It needs improvement. First of all, you should be able to search for content. You’ve already made it so close to a search engine, how hard would it be to add in a search function? Second of all, you should be able to report or rate content without downloading it first. And finally, if it’s possible, when a download fails, the author should be notified of it.

      Whoops, forgot to mention that there should be an option to disable multiplayer in UI settings. Please still reply to the origianal comment if you have any questions, Kaalus.

        Why does everyone want multiplayer? Just, no. Go to minecraft if you want that.

        • Posted December 22, 2014 at 18:52 | Permalink

          Ikr I think multiplayer would cause many problems like endless spamming of Kaalus’ email whining about their world being destroyed by some troll. Also I bet the game would get a lower rating for the same reason.

          Posted December 22, 2014 at 20:18 | Permalink

          If there were griefers or trolls you would ban them using the admin feature. If you weren’t an admin and the griefer/troll wasn’t getting banned, then it’s the admins’ fault, not Kaalus’ Also, I thought I said that I only wanted KAALUS to reply, not other people. (I’m the same as OlimarLouie, just created a new account. I don’t have a blog. Yet.)

    Hi! I have an idea for transportation. It seems to take a while for people on survivalcraft to walk! I think a carriage pulled by one or two horses would be awesome! Maybe you could have a hood on the carriage. This is just a suggestion so i hope you will check this out and consider it. Please reply if you guys think this is a good idea.

    Kaalus, you are awesome at programming, considering that you’ve made a 3D block game with somewhere around 256 block IDs and up to 16 variations of some of them, lots of animals which are even smart enough to attack each other, a full clothing system with freezing effects, and a realistic survival mode, all in just three years, on your own

    Merry Christmas Survivalcraft!

    Here is some suggestions for future updates:

    You should have a tool to smooth out the terrain in creative mode

    Backpacks made of leather or Fur

    Fur Boots leather boots with fur to make full fur set!

    Gloves!

    Instead of breaking wood with bare hands you would have to pick up rocks and sticks and with the rocks you could break the trees!

    And make it so that when you hit a tree at the bottom it won’t float in the air, instead it would fall on its side!

    Also Sideways Logs and stairs that go inwards!

    Thank you for making such an awesome game!
    Richard :-)

    I think you are doing an amazing job! I am so looking forward for 1.27 to come out! I have some suggestions about future updates, first, baby animals, they are so cute and would really bring a more realistic touch to animal herds/packs/prides. Second, more coat variations, this is only for horses, but it would be so cool and lastly, maybe a horse carriage or cart, these are just suggestions, but please consider it!!
    Thank you so much!
