1.29.6

 

Will this ever end! Someone tried to cook an egg and it did not work. Oh well, we need 1.29.6…

Since 1.29 there are 2 types of eggs, laid and non-laid. Laid egg is an honest egg, laid by a bird. Non-laid egg, also known as spawner egg, is a cheaty little egg taken from creative inventory.

Egg.png

The difference is vital: when thrown, laid eggs have only a very small chance of spawning a bird. Spawner eggs have 100% chance. This must be so, otherwise in Challenging you could cheat by throwing an egg and turning it into a bird, which is much more nutritious.

Before 1.29 it worked by making all eggs spawn with 100% probability in creative mode only. Since the dispenser was added this is not good enough. You may want to dispense laid eggs as food, or make dispenser spawn animals by shooting spawner eggs. This must work in Challenging or Adventure. So the old system was not good enough, hence 2 egg types.

The problem was that I forgot to adjust cooking recipes. Result: spawner eggs were cookable instead of laid eggs. There’s no point in cooking spawner eggs. Cooked werewolf spawner egg anyone? So this is corrected in 1.29.6. I also modified weapons/tools powers and durabilities a little to give more credibility to this version.

Anyway, 1.29.6 is published. Maybe this is it.

When I am not reading your comments I am working on 1.30.

    OMG!!! FINNALY I CAN CONNECT MY GOOGLE+ ACCOUNT HERE, phew, awesome work Kaalus! BTW Tom, in the poll I voted for NPCs, taming, baby animals, generated structures and multiplayer.
    Oh and more transport! Forgot that! Kaalus, please add NPCs, taming and more generated structures in 1.30 please!!! I want these features soooo bad…I voted for more options to generate world too, so Kaalus please add taming NPCs and more generated structures in 1.30, many people want that, and it’ll make the game even better! Taming for Wolves and Coyotes, NPCs like Villagers, Tribes etc, more generated structures like temples, cabins, and more cool things.
    Thanks a lot and SurvivalCraft is the best block game ever!!!!

    Everyone wants multiplayer, it seems that Kaluus will have to include it but leave left the game for a few months

    • Posted January 16, 2016 at 09:05 | Permalink | Reply

      Problem with just ‘adding’ multiplayer is all the hard work coding it in and implementing a server system (not to mention the shear cost of hosting/servers themselves) and I agree with him waiting till games pretty much done. Every update/new feature would then need to be added to each servers code. Waiting will save a lot of time in that aspect alone. I do believe the games become very well rounded… In my opinion (as a freelance android dev) Multiplayer should be on its way soon. But again thats just speculation.

        If I also agree with you would be expensive and difficult multiplayer. But you can also add things easier while as languages ​​or more villages as a new structure

      If you can back it up to SD card, and you have a pc you can work around it. Just back up to SD then plug into pc, then find the world file and upload to dropbox from there.

    I have a small but very nice suggestion:

    Short: Text, that appears by using electrical sings should be in the same colour as the sign itself.

    Long: Build a sign, write: “Hello world”, paint the sign red and connect it with wire to a circuit.
    By activating the sign, “Hello world” appears now with a red text colour ingame instead of the default white.

    This would be a great feature for adventure maps. For example you could create dialogues or highlight important words.

    Hey kaalus! Well I hope u haven’t published 1.29.6 to all platforms yet. Or maybe it can be in 1.30. Anyways what I was proposing is that you allow iPhone users to get everyone’s community content again. I know why you got rid of it(inappropriate worlds) but could you maybe have a system where if you post too many inappropriate worlds you get a ban for a certain amount of time and if they continue to do it then just permanently ban them from posting worlds. I am saying this b/c it gets boring when you already played the 15 or so games you put in. Isolationism much? Well i hope you take this into consideration. Bye.

      ‘We’ is just a typical word to use when anything has been done within a community. It doesn’t really mean that multiple people are working on this of course. Just think of it as our entire community. Kaalus saying ‘we’ is just a friendly way of saying, “we did this together.”

      Probably just the literary “we”. That’s a common practice.

      It is a more huble way of not focussing attention to oneself. IF he he continually said “I this” and “I that” it sounds very arrogant. Another problem is that by saying I, people might look down on SC as for most people (me included) it is difficult to believe that this is done by just one guy. This is still a justified response, since Kaalus does have all of our help as well.

    Suggestion: Half Log.

    It’d be like a slab. Just half of a log.

    Uses:
    – Random Tree Stumps, since we now have Fallen Logs this would be great! They would be the normal whole log under ground, and one half log on top.
    – Log endings. Especially for log cabins, you could use this as an ending for your logs.
    – Extra tree height. Just one extra half log on top of a tree.
    – 2 planks, instead of the usual 4.
    – Placing one half on top of another will NOT make a full log, since that is just not possible obviously. You can’t reassemble a tree once it’s chopped up.
    – Awesomeness.

    Just an opinion, as a Creative I find I miss two slabs _not_ becoming one slab. When you place one wrong, now you have to delete both, and add back the first one too. This is more work.

    Again it’s personal preference. I think it was better to just switch to a full block when you want one.

    • Posted January 16, 2016 at 20:19 | Permalink | Reply

      I totally agree. It would be epic to paint the top slab and the lower slab in different colours.

      • Posted January 16, 2016 at 20:42 | Permalink | Reply

        There are not enough bits to do this, since although there are two slabs, they occupy ons block space. This should however be possible with two slabs occupying two block spaces.

        You can only have one colour in one block space, for now, unless Kaalus users the other bits for this.

    Can we have another view distance notch? I have 3gb of RAM and the current highest setting says 2gb recommended. You said that:
    R ∝ V^2
    when R = RAM requirement and V = view distance

    sqrt(3/2) * 256 = 313.534687076
    therefore maybe 320 blocks view distance max…?

    Diamonds are Way to easy to find. I was able to get about 99 diamonds within 15 minutes. And I’m not joking around. 2 stacks of 40 and 19. Everything else seems 👌

    It just seems to be unrealistic to find so many diamonds in one general area.
