Survivalcraft Day One

I forgot to tell you, but in 1.29 on iOS uploading to community content is re-enabled, as is browsing of the entire content, not just the whitelisted items. Hooray!

Another thing I did not tell you is that I published two versions, not one. The new version is called Survivalcraft Day One, and is a free version of Survivalcraft that lets you play the first day and night, just like on other platforms. And Apple have just approved it:

Icon-76@2x.png

Because this is a fresh free app, it needs all the clicks and downloads it can get. Please go to the app page. If you have an iOS device, please download it. It’s free and you can try out all the new 1.29 features while waiting for full version to be approved.

You can also start making 1.29 screenshots for the contest. One day and night should be enough to set it up. Just remember about the settings.

If you want to help further, you can also type in “Survivalcraft Day One” in the search box on app store. The more searches, the better app ranking.

The new big feature is going well so far. It’s not a meteorite, boulder or a new way of digging blocks, it’s something cooler, especially for the creative mode people. OK, no more hints.

Btw. once this is finished, I also plan to add something of interest for survival guys too, no worries!

And don’t forget about Day One, it needs your help this weekend!

    So… This “Day One” Version is much like the Demo Version of Android? I’m just curious…

    But now I’ve absolutely no idea of that “Thing” of 1.30… But is Something related with Sand?

    I think I am right with my old guess.

    It is some kind of “tool” for creative bulder to generate structures.

    mini blocks.

    Great love the creative stuff… Will download an rate day one too.

    Micro blocks might be an option, but more likely a building tool. I just cannot see how a building tool will need 32 bits. So it is more like micro blocks or sculpturing. It is quite interesting that Kaalus shot down other things but not micro blocks.

    • Posted January 23, 2016 at 14:37 | Permalink | Reply

      Micro blocks implies that different types of blocks can be used within one block. This will be too much data. So sculpturing is more likely. This will however increase the file size of the worlds a lot of you use this a lot. But it is something he has never talked about.

  13. Posted January 23, 2016 at 14:41 | Permalink | Reply

    Kaalus, if it is sculpturing, please make an option to copy an item into your inventory, so that we can duplicate stuff easily.

    Why did the “Apple store” approve survival craft day one but not the update.

    Is 1.30 update going to be more about survival features than creative features?

    Done. Couple pics…

    And here we have the largest sphere ever made in survival craft! 120 block radius, since the max height is 128 and the ground is 8 blocks high. It would look better if the view distance could be more than 256.

      Wow this is huge!!
      Is it hollow?
      I would love to see a massive cilinder next! It should be easier than that sphere!

      • Posted January 23, 2016 at 19:54 | Permalink | Reply

        Well actually, cylinders are a bit more complex than spheres… They just don’t take as much math. But anyways, I already have cylinders implemented. And, Justin, check your hangouts messages!

        • Posted January 23, 2016 at 21:47 | Permalink

          That is very awesome. This tool you developed is pretty cool.

        • Posted January 23, 2016 at 23:09 | Permalink

          How do I get to handouts?
          Will it work on mobile device like my tablet?
          And can you make massive walls?
          If you can make massive walls I would be able to spawn castles peace by peace

        • Posted January 23, 2016 at 23:47 | Permalink

          Yes you can make massive walls. As massive as you want them in fact, as long as you aren’t exceeding SC’s height limit. The program itself only runs on PC, but works for all worlds from any device.

          Now about hangouts, you can get on it on like any google site or the Hangouts app itself. I tend to just go to mail.google.com, plus.google.com, or hangouts.google.com.

        Well it came up on a notification so I am not to shore how to get there
        You are talking to a person who doesn’t have social media of any kind
        I don’t even have a cell phone and that’s really saying something because I am 16 years old
        Honestly I don’t have enough friends to ever nead to even consider getting one
        Google? I think of the number when I hear that name Even though it is a search engine…. I learned just this year how to use my gmail other than to get games on the internet…..

      Another cool sphere:

      For this one I used decreasing tolerances, each with a different block.
      Also this one is just a 50 block radius, just sticking to my view range.

      • Posted January 23, 2016 at 20:44 | Permalink | Reply

        Here is the inside of a sphere made the same way as this one, but with more tolerance levels.

    What’s up with the iOS App Store? Searches for “survival craft day one”, which had one search result this morning, now shows as zero results now. Has it been removed from the App Store???!!!

    • Posted January 23, 2016 at 20:23 | Permalink | Reply

      Never mind. It has reappeared. Weird. Off to do more searches!

      One more question though. I’m loving the caved…but is the higher frequency of ore just dur to the expansiveness of the caves? The second one I entered had at least 30 diamonds exposed.

    Wow, new stuff for the survival guys… Saddke bags maybe, or tents, or fire pits, or FOOD SPOILAGE, the possubilities are infinite

    I’ve noticed that with the 32bit Conversion, the world now are twice as “heavier” in terms of Memory…
    example: A World who was 60 MB before, Now Is 120 MB with 1.29…
    This Can Turn into something or really annoying…

    • Posted January 23, 2016 at 21:06 | Permalink | Reply

      Well obviously the size is going to double, we have doubled the bits contained in each chunk’s blocks. Did you think doubling from 16 to 32 bits wasn’t going to impact it at all?

      • Posted January 23, 2016 at 21:12 | Permalink | Reply

        I was Expecting some Kind of impact on the worlds with the new Update, but I wasn’t expecting that worlds memory size is DOUBLED… That’s all…

        I didn’t know that this switching from 16 to 32 Bits was so important to the memory size…

        • Posted January 23, 2016 at 21:23 | Permalink

          The bits are literally doubling… :P
