Mysterious and vague

I am busy on 1.30. The big feature that was supposed to appear in 1.29 is in the works.

Because this is a large and risky one, the fact that I am working on it does not mean it will work out. I may hit a snag that prevents me from finishing it, and have to revert everything. Don’t hold your breath.

Therefore for now I am just going to post one image that is mysterious, vague and only tangentially connected with the real deal…

Object.jpg

Anyway, it’s a lot more to go on than what you had before.

          You wanna tell me what part of the blocky mess is the piston? U don’t really think that, you just want pistons.

          I honestly don’t want pistons, but I believe that the device facing you may be a piston, and the rest powers it. I honestly want carving blocks much more.

    Kaalus, I know your very busy, but I have a small fairly easy to add request.
    In creative, it takes hours to fill chest when building a world cause you have to 40 times per grid, that means 640 times to fill a chest!
    Please add a fill button in the chests in creative, you click it and than every grid you touch fills completely.
    16 taps or 640 taps, hmmmmm.

        It seems obvious that it is the editing of blocks by taking away certain parts of it. It is most likely the ability to carve things.

        Also, to explain kaalus being in the air: There is no gravity, he can make a block float in the air. Possibly to screw with all the people here into thinking that it is a structure on the ground. The pixels are all wrong for that, its practically in his face.

    Hey Kaalus i dont know if this is a tall order but when i try to make a cobblestone generator (Because i was trying to make a skyblock map) it makes basalt so do you think you could fix that so it makes cobblestone?

    • Posted January 23, 2016 at 02:07 | Permalink | Reply

      The point of survival craft is to be realistic. Water cooled lava would not make cobble stone. Its much more likely to create a volcanic rock such as basalt

          I even wish survival craft could have some of the stuff in it, i.e.: naturally generated sticks and stone chunks…falling blocks and mudslides…harder to get tools. And planks are made from saws. And snapping, possibly? But only a few of the need to be added, i don’t want it to be too much like it.

    Probably chiseling which would make sense due to the heavy use of metadata/bits etc and it would fit with the new 32bit designs so it could also be added as terrain generation like stalagmites/stalactites better mountain ranges something along those lines.

    It looks like regular sand that, instead of falling as a regular block, morphs as it falls just like sand should. He said that it is only “tangentially connected with the real deal” perhaps implicating the ability to change the shape of certain blocks. This may also mean that water physics will be improved. Earlier, (December 22, 2015, 1.29 Work), Kaalus said, “I have plans for a new grand feature that will need every single one of these new bits,” referencing the change to 32 bits. I believe I recall (not sure when) Kaalus saying something about water physics. Whatever it is, it is going to be awesome. Just my speculation.

    The “big” feature is most likely not a single item. More like something that changes a lot of the gameplay mechanics so I’m behind those who are saying things like terrain generation. Smaller and different shaped cuboids will definitely change the game aesthetically and could these blocks change shape? I swear this much hype is bad for my health XD

    Micro Blocks. Take a look at a block of sand, it is made up of 32x32x32 smaller blocks. in Kaalus’s image, the smallest dimension, the pin going through the con-rod is made up of 2×2 of these smaller blocks. this would mean each current block would be composed of 4096 smaller blocks, If this would allow to build engines and such like on a realistic scale, that would be fantastic, the possibilities would be endless, think driving around in v8’s, oil wells, refinery blocks similar to furnaces to make petrol, tarmac, but this would require blocks that move against other otherwise it would just be a sculpture of an engine.

    There’s a few things I can think of. Quicksand, tornado, meteorite, something involving pistons. Those are just a few things. It could be any of them, or it could be none of them. Who knows guess we will have to wait to see what he says.

    This item only has one texture, so it cannot be micro blocks. This must be sculpturing. It cannot be a new item like an engine or even a piston, since that will not be such a huge addition. Please just add a way to reproduce or copy the same item created.
