1.27.2 Out

Another bugfix release, 1.27.2 is out. Here’s the list of changes:

  • Fixed hitting horse when saddling
  • Fixed sometimes unable to ride a horse when naked
  • Suppressed 1.26 data migration after 3 attempts
  • Removed duplication of projectiles when sticking to chest and being captured by the chest at the same time

Please keep testing. I am most interested in this:

  • On which devices/Android versions you’re getting “error saving game” messages. Believe it or not this is another Android audio bug in action :-)
  • Please send screenshots of any visual glitches of the sky, missing or badly rendered terrain. Please include device model and Android version, and under which conditions the glitches occur. Without this information your screenshots are of little use.

Predators in 1.27 are more adventurous and will jump higher cliffs than previously to get to their target. This is by design.

    Will the predators take injury to get to their prey?

    • Posted March 25, 2015 at 15:14 | Permalink | Reply

      Depends on how much damage they take, if they take a little damage odds are they’ll keep chasing their prey, if it’s a lot of damage odds are they’ll high-tail it outta there same as they did before. theyll just be more adventurous in this update meaning some predators or certain members of the predators species will be more daring then most to get their food, even if that means risking injury by falling off cliffs and stuff, but I’m pretty sure their inhanced AI and “tracking” will save them from that…for the most part.

    –BUG REPORT–
    Device: Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 GT-P3113
    Android: 4.2.2
    Survivalcraft 1.27.2.0

    1. The HUD buttons when touched have a one second delay before doing it’s own action.
    2. “ERROR SAVING GAME” appearing frequently.
    3. The Water ambient sound is too loud, tone it down a bit. :)
    4. Same goes for the “wet feet” sound. It doesn’t tone down over time. The sound just… disappears immediately.
    5. Occasional lag. That didn’t happen on SC 1.26.7.0.
    6. Can sometimes see beneath the ground.
    7. Sometimes, the cloud and terrain have… weird rendering. It looks like the sky’s stretched.

    That’s all I can find for now. Good luck, man! :D

    Water bugs (no pun intended)
    1. The sound! It’s too much! Static water should be silent. Unfortunately we now have to fill Every. Single. Block in a body of water with a water source. No more deepening pools by breaking out blocks. That’s really bad.

    Here’s a pic of two pools. Which one is making flowing water noise? Expected: Only the one on the right, with obvious flowing water current.

    Actual: Both pools are making noise, even the still one.

    Please please fix this if you can!

    2. No more aquariums? The new translucency behavior makes aquarium side OPAQUE :( :( So now their inhabitants can only be viewed from above.

      when asked this several months ago you replied ” 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.” so is re-designing an entire system not like redesigning the “engine” ?

    That’s… probably a good idea. I hope there is an option to change your character’s hand-place when there is an option to change the HUD for each distinctive hand. I think that’ll work because of the new engine. Kaalus has now control of the whole game, from top to bottom, so I think he can do that now.

    I enjoy this game Immensely and the feedback on this site is on the whole good, but some of the comments and suggestions are bordering on insanity, I’d like the save game probs to be sorted as if I spend 3 hrs building a cathedral to find its not been saved well I could have spent that time cooking up a broth for the homeless.

    Just trying to creat a sense of normality around here, anyhoo this will be my last post, oh by the way Kaalus if this game was developed for PS I’m confident it would be as big as Tombraider was in the early years.

    and can you also make smeagol from lord of the rings to creep around and follow u from long distances. that would be awsome. and itll be cool when we follow him we would end up in his cave and we could steal his stuff. and could u make him say sayings like my precious. plz add smeagol

    Dear Kalus. Я может пишу не по теме, го всё таки спрошу. У меня на карте если я ставлю таблицу где-то 500 блоков от дома , то через некоторое время таблица пропадёт. Это так и должно быть ?
