Upgrading to 1.29

I’ve had some reports of the upgrade process damaging people’s worlds.

If you have a valuable world:

  • Please back it up frequently to Dropbox or SD card, and especially before opening it for the first time in a new version of the game
  • Make sure that you have plenty of free space on device before upgrading your worlds

I’ve done all I could to make the upgrade process work smoothly. It worked fine for thousands of worlds, including hundreds that I have tested it on personally. But once in a while some unforeseen combination of bad luck may throw it off.

Even Challenger blew up, even though NASA said the chance of failure was 1:100000.

Be safe. Back up your valuable worlds.

    Yeah, unfortunately my point has been proven.

    It’s unfortunate, but some losses are for the best. No I’m not saying that losing your worlds is a good thing, but the problem opens room for improvement.

    I have a world that will not export to SD or drop box. It gives me an out of memory error. Is there any other way to back up this world? I have LOT on it. Been working on it for a while.

      Same here. I’ve emailed Kaalus and sending himself pics and videos of the problem right now.mine does the same thing, sometimes crashing.Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9Gen

      Send him anything you can at his Candyrufusgames email, so he can see how our problems related and differs

      If you’re device is rooted (assuming it’s Android or Kindle), you can manually copy the world files. I don’t think Kaalus would like me giving specific instructions so I won’t. I’ve had to do it once.

    I have the Bow Graphics bug on my iOS device as well! Please fix it for 1.29.

    Also, Kaalus, you worked for the last four (4) years, not three. Just a correction.

    Isn’t it 1:1,000,000 and not 1:100,000

    Bc you said one hundred thousands not 1 out of 1million.

    Ok This bug has been here since the update after kaalus added gravestones.

    The big I’m talking about is that gravestones show up but do not produce anything underneath them like they should. It still has the two holes under neath the graves but just doesn’t have anything of value.

    Yes I’ve checked about 10 to 15 and all had nothing, yes I would dig them up right when I see them. No I haven’t explored the area before. No they shouldn’t disappear by the time I check them.

    Does this landform seem familiar to anybody?

    @Kaalus: Another stair bug… It’s to do with two outside corners being diagonal from each other. Once you have them like that you can’t place an inside or outside corner in the other spaces, only regular. Thoroughly tested, tried as many angles as I could.

    I found this when I was building my fountain, so it’d be great if it was fixed… :D

    Kaalus said that copper will be abundant and iron will be harder to find or is it the other way around
    I keep finding iron but now copper it wasn’t even deep enough it’s on basalt and also the leaves won’t decay when they are far away from the trunk or place it far away
