The Screenshot Contest

The screenshots used by Survivalcraft in Google Play and other stores badly need updating. Some of them date to prehistoric times of 1.19 (the version I added electricity), if not earlier. A lot of the game features, like bows, crossbows, muskets, painting, tall spruces, etc. etc. are not there.

But making good screenshots is time consuming. I’d rather spend the time working on 1.30.

How about you make some?

Here’s the deal. I have some promo codes for the game on Android and iOS. These will be the prizes for the screenshots that win, and will actually get used. You need to take the screenshots, using in-game camera button.

Hey, wait! Before you do anything, make sure you use these settings:

  • User Interface / Show UI in screenshots: NO
  • User Interface / Show logo in screenshots: NO
  • User Interface / Screenshot resolution: FullHD
  • Performance / Display FPS counter: NO

I cannot accept screenshots taken with wrong settings. I will need to process the screenshots for different platforms, and if there is UI, logos, FPS, or they are wrong resolution, they will be useless.

Unfortunately you must use 1.29 to take the screenshots, so only Android users are in luck currently. But I will be publishing to other platforms soon, and the contest does not end tomorrow.

Once you take the shots, please email them to candyrufusgames@gmail.com with subject “Screenshots”. Do not send too many – a few best ones is OK. You can also post them for all to see in comments if you wish.

Here’s a nice one I’ve taken accidentally when working on tall spruces:

Screenshot 2 1920x1080.jpg

But it is a little bare. Maybe if it had the player aiming a gun at a moose?

Good Luck!

I know most of you already paid for the game, so the promo codes are not that great, but you may always get the game on another platform, give the code to someone you like, or make a contest of your own with the code as prize. I have never used Android codes (they are new to the platform), so we’ll see how it goes.

    Guess that we cannot use Different Block Textures to do the Screenshot, Right? I think that we are forced to use the Default Texture…

      You can use different block textures, but don’t overdo it. Make some with the default one too.

        One question, are builds fine? The current screens contain a large mansion and a small town, so I was wondering if you’re doing the same this time.

    As soon as Windows version is released, I’ll be on it.

    Will the contest end before the new version is released on other platforms?

    Not to be redundant… but the bow graphics are also a bug in the IOS systems (at least 5s)

    I don’t really care about any bugs,I just want an update submitted to Amazon.thanks.

    • Posted January 17, 2016 at 00:05 | Permalink | Reply

      The update is already on Amazon. It has been since around the same time it was on the Play Store. I even tried it on my kindle before I tried it on my galaxy so I know for sure.

    Just a picture of my very deep mineshaft.

    I automatically generated this shaft with my upcoming advanced editor, “Survivalcraft ToolBox.” It includes a ‘repeater’ that I used to copy a single level of this shaft down until it got to bedrock. It includes many other things and I’m currently working on it’s 3D editor.

      Also, Kaalus, notice the left side of this picture. The texture rotation is still messed up. That’s a top-half slab next to a full block.

    • Posted January 16, 2016 at 23:33 | Permalink | Reply

      Kinda like the slabs still need the top face rotated 180 degrees.

      I wish I could make a shaft like that…:-(

    Another map generated using my tool mentioned above.

    I first flattened the land, then made a rectangular prism, then added a cylinder to the corner, made a circle of windows, then added random grass so it didn’t look plain.

    Hay kaalus!!!!! How about this… :-D

      I’m pretty sure he prefers them to be unedited. They need to represent the game exactly how it is in game. Using a photo editing software makes it less genuine.

      The picture is great though, I bet it’d be just fine without the editing.

    Hey Kaalus, there is a bug, camels and donkeys can jump all fences without a rider. This means you must double stack fences to keep them inside.

      I have been trying to tell him that for awhile now and donkeys can swim in lava…

      If you have drop box upload it to that then share on Dropbox to get the link then copy link onto a comment here and Post. :-D

    • Posted January 17, 2016 at 00:55 | Permalink | Reply

      Or… In more basic terms, just post the direct link.

      For example, in Chrome you can get the direct link of an image by right clicking on an image and selecting “Copy image address.”
