1.29 Release Imminent

I don’t have time to do any more videos, but I will post the full changelist soon. It has 68 items, so pretty big for an update that comes just weeks after 1.28. I must have gone into flow!

 

As usual, I will initially release for Google Play only. The demo will be updated first. Once it’s released, even if you have the full version, please download it and give it a go! It’s free and I don’t want to unleash what is essentially a beta onto paying users.

Especially that there are some fundamental changes that carry high risk of catastrophic bugs. I am talking about 32 bit blocks here. This is a big change that increases memory consumption of the game (by about 16MB at 128 visibility range) and reduces terrain generation performance slightly (due to more cache thrashing).

I will let you know once it’s released.

    What’s the big feature??? That uses all 32 bits???

    • Posted January 10, 2016 at 22:37 | Permalink | Reply

      I think it was the paint and stuff.

        Paint can’t be the big thing because he already told us about that.

      He never said his “big feature” was going to be IN 1.29! He said it would be possible given 1.29 and 32 bit blocks. So no, it may not be in this update, and no, it’s not that we are getting 32 bit blocks.

          As in now that we have the requirements. Not as in 1.29.

          Actually crayder, it means, now is the time to do it.

          I know English might not be your first language, but the sentence is really easy to interpret correctly.

      Currently what I’ve seen he’s adding are 32 bit blocks, more painting, more fences, more music, and probably other stuff I forgot.

    Ooh I wander how hard thirst would be to implement into the code. Of course he would also have to add bottles or some kind of container to consume with. Maybe a lazy way around this would be to stand in shallow water. Lol. Jk

      Kaalus is not making diamond stronger than iron. Quit spamming this. Just email kaalus if you want him to make diamond tools have those stata.

      That’s not quite right, Kaalus will make the game tools as he wants :)

    • Posted January 11, 2016 at 16:29 | Permalink | Reply

      The Diamond tools aren’t supposed to be stronger than Iron. The idea is that they have the same attack powers but Diamond is more durable. Good job on that chart, though.

    Kaalus, can you add something like compost in the next update, please? The three major crops that you can grow are good, but even if you just want to play as a farmer in the game, you still have to go trekking to find saltpeter to mine and then use as a fertilizer. This isn’t very entertaining, and breaks emersion in the game, no offense. Might I suggest a composting system or composting bin that we can insert tree leaves and grass into, making an easier to obtain fertilizer, or just an alternate fertilizer like fish or something to make the process seem more much reasonable and sustainable? All that saltpeter after all is disrupting SurvivalCraft’s natural nitrogen cycle. ;)

    One more suggestion, pets of any kind, please? A pet wolf would be a great addition to the game, and everyone likes the idea. If you implemented pathfinding with predators of the sort, having a pet following you around and helping you fend off all the other beasts should be a piece of cake, and fits in with the whole survival theme too.

    ..and Kaalus, please PLEASE add human mobs to the game, I don’t care if it’s only accessible through creative mode, or what, but we need them. All the city maps are barren because of a lack of this. Please add it, I know you can.

    Using the back unused input of sound generators you should be able to adjust the global volume generated. So if I made a sound generator with ambient music I would still be able to hear it from 2 chunks away.

    • Posted January 11, 2016 at 02:40 | Permalink | Reply

      The input would be digital not analog if you see more use as analog you could make it analog also

          I think kaalus is just sick of everyone talking and asking about multiplayer but I think I can see it come on 1.30 as like a milestone or maybe 1.35

    Can we please have more creative options and tools, for example, more customisable options when creating a world. Be able to create much larger islands and adjust sea level / average land level without only using stupid flat terrain option. And faster / better creative tool options for building ( plenty of ideas in forum ) saves me going on and on..

    After all creative mode players make a lot of worlds for survival players. So please help make our job easyer and make an update about this. So many players have quit great worlds because the work load becomes to boring and tedious. We need to speed up creative building to make it more enjoyable and keep the interest in a world a player is building alive.

    You know it makes sence Kaalus.

    I was thinking that maybe you should release an older version (1.28) that will work with very old devices. I am not sure, but I think that the increase in block data might be too much for old devices.
