New tree type

For the first time since 1.0 back in 2011, I am adding a new tree type to the game.

Meet tall spruces.

They are immense, up to 30 blocks tall (versus max 17 of the old trees).

They have bare trunks up to certain height making spooky forest atmosphere, a bit like in Blair Witch Project if you watched that.

Here’s some screenshots:

    Will it be the only tree type having horizontal trunk pieces? Would be more realistic if other trees had it too

      I think al trees have it, you just don’t notice it in the video as the birches have thicker leaves.

    Perfect! My mega-structure is expecting 30 block long logs. Of course mine will also be steroided 4×4 trunks. :D

    Also, noticed the fallen logs! Awesome!

    With the Release of the 1.29, we will have a lot of good reasons to start a new Challenging World only for the new features!

    That is awesome, but can you add more types of trees like beach wood, and or dark oak, or even jungle wood

    Great news, but I’d like to see more biomes too :)

    I’ve also noticed some chopped down trunks similar to the MCPE ones! Great!

    HEY did Kaalus just add BANKING to flying???

      No, he has had that in whatever he uses to test sc since forever. Go watch his islands video

    • Posted January 8, 2016 at 21:08 | Permalink | Reply

      Yeah, I though the same on his water transparency video.

    Hmm, those birch tree trunks look like they have a new texture, a little brown in the corner maybe? Looks really cool!

    • Posted January 8, 2016 at 21:07 | Permalink | Reply

      I thought so too, but it may be the lighting or video quality.

      • Posted January 8, 2016 at 21:26 | Permalink | Reply

        Well it is not video quality, look at the screen shots, they have it as well so it could be the lighting, though I’ve never seen it before…

        • Posted January 8, 2016 at 22:20 | Permalink

          Well, for mine the quality is bad. But now that i look at it again, i agree with you.

    Awesome!!!!

    I totally called the fallen tree trunks.

    I like the fallen branches on the ground, a nice touch

    Btw Kaalus, will you mind if I say a small idea there? I think dispensers sucking items thrown at them would be very handy

      Well chests can suck things up. Am I right?

          Kaalus needs to add that feature so badly. I have been requesting it since a few posts ago. I need this for item transport, especially when making certain maps.

    Aaaaaaaagggg I checked on copper at school and couldn’t comment on the super sized spruce tree’s when I saw them then I come home and you already told everyone

    That’s great news Kaalus. Highest the tree mean highest chance to lightning strike. New tree huh & falling tree. Nice. Tq

    Kaalus, when will you put a hand held torch or flashlight? It’s going to be difficult to explore these new spooky forests at night without a portable light source. To make the game harder, a flashlight can increase predators pathfinding. And can you please put a flashlight add on to the musket please? Or make the player be able to dual wield a musket and flashlight?

    I love it! I also think sprinting should be added. You can run twice as fast, but your stamina fall twice as fast too.

    • Posted January 9, 2016 at 12:43 | Permalink | Reply

      You can already sprint in survivalcraft. Every time you go the maximum speed, you are sprinting. Why do you think the character gets tired out somewhat quickly? You don’t do that from walking. You can control how fast you walk (As long as you don’t have fhe D-Pad). Think about it. You don’t outrun animals by walking. No, you can already sprint in survivalcraft.

    Our hero got guns! Check out this new poster!

    I want as may opinions as possible

    How can I improve this design

    • Posted January 8, 2016 at 23:59 | Permalink | Reply

      Seems pretty cool to me. Shows off the features nicely and I like the color scheme it has going for it.

        Thanks it took an hour to iron out all the small details that needed fixing…. When I was done Photoshoping the screenshot I had to fix the gun ( it was green and the barrel wasn’t visible), and the hat was not distinguishable between it and the background, not only that but the facial hair was werd and needed fixing, then the lip was skin tone…….. The list goes on and on….. Thanks!

    Add,geckos,better bird graphics, crocodiles, ambience sounds, snakes, more fish, and binoculars.

    • Posted January 9, 2016 at 15:28 | Permalink | Reply

      And you should give the crocodiles the ability to sink in the water and only show their faces, and let the geckos climb trees.

    Kaalus, first off long time how’s it been, second with the game you should be able to make your own character, it would make the game a lot more involved because you would get more attached to the character like it was a pet.

    This is great loving the new updates. Look forward to see what’s been added In each new post. Hoping smaller pains of glass are in there somewhere wonder if it can be stained with colour too?? 1.29 is looking to be great tho.

  40. Posted January 9, 2016 at 03:23 | Permalink | Reply

    Very nice. How about Oak trees and Birch. Will there be supersized trees for all? Especially in ‘jungle’ environments. Thick large trees would be awesome like palm trees.

    Kaalus add domestication of animals such as the wolf, also add a way to attract cows, birds …; add freshwater animals: crocodile, hippo …; and more monsters and mythological creatures: phoenix, unicorn, Minotaur … Read and think about it please, I’m a big fan of the game. Forgive me for my grammar, I am Brazilian and I used Google Translator

    Kaalus. I had a question. How hard would it be to make trees fall down to the point you cut? As if cutting a tree down in real life. Could this be done in Survival Craft?

  48. Posted January 10, 2016 at 00:36 | Permalink | Reply

    Please kaalus adds particles to trees (leaves of trees ) and also the majority of blocks falling on them
