Colored wires contd.

As you already know, the next version will have painted wires. I’ve seen a lot of you say that wires should not connect to wires of different color, apart from non-painted wires which should connect to everything.

After some fiddling with the electricity system I added it, but please tell me whether you are sure this is a good idea?

This is how it looks in action:

ColoredWires.jpg

As far as I can see it has these positives:

  • You can make smaller circuits because you don’t have to worry so much about wires connecting inadvertently
  • All existing builds work as previously (because they have only non-painted wires that connect to everything)
  • You can still use it for marking function of wires, as long as entire wire is the same color, which you would probably do anyway (unless you wanted to do multicolored markings, but that seems like an extreme corner case)

I can’t see any negatives.

I don’t have time to pore over this forever, please have a think and let me know whether you foresee any problems? Or if you see a way to generalize this idea any further, perhaps some colored wires interactions with other electric blocks?

We can still back off from this, but once it is released there will be no going back, because people will start using it in their builds.

        I honestly don’t see what’s so fun MC. I don’t even play SC anymore unless I’m spurred on by a post. But I will never play non-modded MC again. Sorry if this seems nasty, i just don’t understand why MC is so loved. And half the time the people who like MC hate SC. :-(

        Do you think that threatening to switch back to Minecraft will strike fear in him? He is either taking a break or working hard on the game. Have patience. He will eventually post something. He doesn’t have an obligation to post, and update us on the game each time he adds something new. It is a luxury. He doesn’t owe you a post.

          I agree with you that he should not be threatening and that he should be patient but I think that Kaalus does have an obligation to keep us posted on what he is doing considering that we invested our money into it.

    I’m not sure whether this would be possible, but crossover blocks would be very useful. As in, one wire crossing another wire but not connecting to it. Even if it was just one (copper) or two colors that it worked with. And I don’t see any downside to the new wires.

    Are the painted wires going to be in electrics category or painted?

    I understand why they would be in painted, but it seems pointless. I don’t know, what does everyone else think. Should they be in ‘Painted’ or ‘Electrics’?

    Awesome work Kaalus, thanks for making such a great game!

      They should be in painted, as to not clutter up the electrics area

      Here’s my argument on the subject.

      Why store a spool of wires in a cabinet on the left side of the room, when there is plenty of space in the cabinet on the right side of the room with all the other electrical equipment in it.

    • Posted March 12, 2016 at 17:12 | Permalink | Reply

      I think painted becaus it would take up a lot of room in the ‘Electrics’ section.

      You should make an electric heater so farmers can grow plants anywhere (even in extremely cold areas). Grow-lights would also be helpful. Or pumps – allowing you to tap into pools of water not immediately where your greenhouse / grow-house.

    Kaalus on the painted wires…get ride of that joining part, in the middle… Like the white goes to the middle joining the other color in the middle… The white should just be a straight line in this example… The the middle should just be one color. I.e. Standard color copper wire. I hope this makes sense.

    Kaalus Please let us cross our wires like irl! Like a blue wire can be placed across (and directly on top of..) a red, green, white, black wire. (Thus allowing much more compact and intricate electrical builds.)
    Should’nt be too hard to add in. For hight I was thinking one wire would be the same as always but if you stack/cross twp different wires it is concidered a half block or slab in height. Think about it.

    I see a difficulty:
    Right now there are 17 pages of painted blocks.
    If you keep the colored wires just for decoration purpose then you can make just a 18th page.
    But If you decide to give the colored wires an actual technical purpose please let them in the “electricity page” maybe on page 3.

    The reason is the practical usage.
    Just for decoration without other purpose the colored wires would be useless in the electricity tab.
    On the other side for technical purpose it would be very frustrating to switch several tabs just to find the needed colored wire if they are in the “colored blocks” tab.

    Long story short: please keep all wires together in the electricity tab if you decide to keep the mentioned change!

    BTW I am looking forward this new feature. Colored wires will revolutionize electric worlds!

    I have seen some people saying they want angle wire-through-blocks. Guys if two adascent sides are unblocked, the wire connects through a corner. If you mean so it looks prettier with a solid block of “wire”, look at your tv or pc wires in real life. Pretty? = No.

      I agree with you. This would be a great addition for the game. But don’t forget that the game is based on blocks. Each block can have exactly 1 BlockID. Every placeable item is considered as block. So two wires can’t fit in one block. Like two cars can’t fit in one garage. For this reason you can’t buld spikes left and right on the the same block. Or place anything on a high slab or stairs.

    Now with all the ideas rolling, can we get a wire through block with four wires. You can then connect wire through blocks in four directions from only one block, isolated from each other. It would be great if blocks with four inputs, could connect directly through the back to this block.

    3. higher mountains – this will require a redo of world creation. I think the total hight of a world is 256 blocks. This will have to be increased to 512. With this option, old worlds must also be changed, but keeping the ground level the same or just increase the depth at unexplored areas. Also bring more seed options, with higher mountans, deeper valleys, lower mountains as is now, etc.
    4. With land creation, give us rivers and valleys.
    5. Life must spawn on islands as well please. They are totally lifeless at the moment. Animals must also not try to return to the mainland – which is actually needed to keep them from drifting into the ocean – a bit tricky.
    6. Animals must stop to disappear. It is frustrating to build a place and seed animals and return later to find them gone.
    7. Allow more animals to be spawned, especially if they are far from each other.
    8. It would be great if animals could increase over a long period of time, not like in MC with feeding. It is unrealistic. I takes many months for a baby animal to be born, so it must be. With cows, there must be a bull. With birds, we can use eggs, maybe just hatch more than 20% chance, which is ok if the birds didn’t keep on disappearing.

      Maybe there should be two types of water, fresh and salt. Would this make sense?

    • Posted March 15, 2016 at 15:03 | Permalink | Reply

      I agree. While there have been a lot of great new features, little issues are ignored.
      Even with the option of setting temperature and humidity the landscape gets monotones after awhile. Distinguishable features are lacking.
      The problem with animals despawning is is horrible. There’s no sense in making a cow pen if the cows vanish. Same with horses. Why bother keeping horses if they vanish from their stall.

      Predators are too aggressive toward non-predator animals. I’ve seen an area completely cleared of cows and pigs by a single lion. YOu end up with a dozen lions and two dozen wolves. There aren’t enough non-predators and too many predators.
      Other issues:
      Fish are too hard to kill. A spear should kill a small fish in one shot. Small fish need to spawn more.

      All forms of transportation are basically useless. Horses should not vanish nor get stubborn. Boats should be safe from fish attacks. I understand if a fish attacks a boat AFTER you attack the fish but otherwise it doesn’t make sense. Boats are also way too slow.

      Farming for rye is too time consuming and bread is too expensive to make it worth the effort. I only build rye farms for the asthetic appeal, not for their usefulness. Rye farming should be more like cotton. Cotton farming is excellent. You get the cotton plus seeds.
      Bread should be easier to make.

        I hope you do know you can plant the rye you harvest and there is plenty of rye that comes from one rye plant to make up for the one you planted also the farm land keeps the saltpeter with it for a while after multiple replants

        If horses got stubborn in real life the way they do in the game, there would never have been cavalry. Can you see the great Mongol horde galloping into battle and suddenly their horses stop and shake their heads?
        Donkeys and camels I can understand but not horses.
        I always replant my rye after harvest. After replanting I end up with a little less than what I dug up.
        One loaf of bread costs 9 rye. If I have 9 plots of farmland I need to harvest (with replanting) twice to get at least 9 usable rye.
        I actually like the bread “baking” process; i.e. making flour and dough. I just wish that 1) harvesting rye would yield both seeds and usable rye and, 2) it cost less rye to make flour. Or maybe 1 dough yield 2 loaves of bread.

        Certain aspects of surviving have gotten too monotonous.. Even on the verge of annoying.. If you want cloths to find food and such you need to have a huge..no.. massive cotten farm. It doesn’t make sense.. And as y’all said rye farming doesn’t pay off at all… Why should I grow something.. Then when harvest comes.. You just gotta start all over? Find all the raw rye to plant again.. Things need to be more realistic.. Simple.

          I use traps. Actually going out to fight is dangerous. I simply make a drop off trap with food dispensers to attract said animal into trap. Water brings all drops to a line of chests. Once in awhile Ill have to run outside… for emergency rations have run out. lol

      Horses can be tamed, but this is a video game, it is limited. Also, boats should be indestructable to anything tiny like parahnas or baracudas. Now if a rhino attacked, it would still have decent speed in water. Horses are living animals, depending on the rider, their treatment, food, mating and a bunch of other stuff, they will react differently. I’ve ridden them and know a fair amount about them since I live in the middle of the country in Missouri. If you don’t tell it who’s boss, it does what it wants.

    I think I discovered a bug or a feature.
    You already know that on negative coordinates you will fall trough the blocks in the void and die.
    What I noticed is that you will fall for eternety. As you can see the body fell for over 10000 Blocks.

    So I just wonder if that has some impact on the performance. I threw a lot of things down the void. Will they just keep falling for the rest of the time?
    When I respawn will they still be falling? Or is there a code which just deletes them? If not I think there is room for an optimization. What do you think?

          @aurasphere if you shouldn’t be in the negative coordinates in the first place, there’s no need to fix anything out there. It’s not like theres not enough space that you need to be in a negative region.

      It doesn’t count as a bug if it is something impossible to do within the normal constraints of the game. I know there is the stairs/slab method but that is not what should be fixed, not the infinite falling.

    I think that crops (especially rye) should drop more seeds, but take ages to grow. In real life, there’s one or two harvests per year, in SC, there’s one every week. Half a year would be a little over the top, but maybe make the crops grow for about 50 days? To equalize this, they’ll have to drop at least twice the amount of seeds they drop now.

Some guys can build better than others, some are still quite young and might not be able to build so great, even older guys might struggle to build great things. I think I can build quite good things, but I know there are others who build much better. I have a life apart from SC, but some live in SC. Some of the builds require so much time, I wonder how people have an income as well, let alone a family who they care for. I myself at one stage spent way too much time on SC. This is not a religion, something MC is more inclined to.

          There is life after SC.

    I have made quite a few changes to my world, Real Animation. Have a look at it. I have also added a new rectus pack I’ve created. Let me know if you like the world and the texture pack.

    It is about 39th on the community content. You can also look at Logic City and My Log Cabin, but they are the same world beginning at different places, since the world is quite big.

    You can create your own animation as well. It is quite easy with an excel macro I wrote.

    With the new coloured wires feature, builds like this will be much easier. Even something simple like my logic sign was a bit tricky because wires connect everywhere. It can be made much smaller after the update. Maybe I’ll rebuild it after the update to compare.

    Some might think that creating an animation like that is not such a big deal. It was not that simple. There is one other world that did something like this, Animator Pro, which is quite good as well with higher resolution, but the animation is not that great. The macro helps with that. Maybe it will help his world as well.

    With the one lift I’ve used gates to create a computer to select levels (not a good as high tech elevator). Coloured wires would have been very helpful.

    See if you can find my garden under the sea as well. Quite a bit of these things were created in survival.

      As long as SC never adopts MC portals to the Nether. It is really lame, but teleporters will help with creative or even just faster flying. I do love MC’s minecarts though. Maybe something like that would also help.

          The rail is actually an advantage. You get on the radiorail and go where I want to, without needing to steer and at high speed. There is no need to navigate either. I never use horses, they are to dangerous, stubborn and slow. If you just come close to a tree, you need to watch out because you might die. To use horses, you need to build highways to be safe.

          I would like to know if there are anybody who use horses in cruel mode.

          Don’t get me wrong, I think horses are cool and unique compared to MC, just do not compare it to a rail system.

          They are used for basically different things. Mine cart are supposed to be for mining and maybe getting somewhere nearby your house that you go to a lot. Horses are for exploring and getting to places you’ve already been to. The stubborn thing is more of a problem that gets way more hate than it should. Horses almost never get stubborn. I’ve played a world over 670 days in cruel and I’ve only had one stubborn horse. However, donkeys are awful. The big problem with minecarts is they are almost useless. They can be fun in creative, but in survival they are only good for making stuff automatic. They are really expensive too. Mobs love getting on rails which is another problem.

          With SC I’m mostly referring to MCPE and as far as I know, it does not have horses. I am also not sure is MC PC has them without mods.

          SurvivalCraft Eminem, you are right about mine carts is best for creative. But they are extremely handie in creative. What I have done, is to create a huge rail system and then play in Survival mode. I also lifted the rails from the ground so that I can avoid creepers. But even when creepers do get on them, they usually do not explode. Anyway, I do not like the unrealistic monsters in MC. I don’t even like the werewolves in SC.

          Horses are still a bit combersome for me. It would help if Kaalus made 3 block high doors so that we can easily ride into safety. I have used normal door with gates at the top. Gates alone are not enough, since tigers jump over them.

    Hey Kaalus :)

    I’ve been playing your game since the earliest patches of survivalcraft and have been a n avid fan until today. I just want to ask you if you have plans with including NPCs to your game. Like the Minecraft counterpart–villagers– survivalcraft’s NPCs will be either hostile and non-hostile (you can call them natives or something totally different if you want :3). Like I said before, I’m a huge fan of your work and will be loving the updates to come. Cheers mate xx

    I love this – it will improve not only creative builds but also the use of electricity in survival, challenging and cruel. I also love the idea of the wire through corners that people have brought up, that is something I suggested on the forum ages ago. Switching the placement of one wire and one granite, wood, basalt block could create the difference and allow for similar resource usage. Placement could be accomplished in the same fashion as stairs – with regard to directionality. To me the different color wires and wire through corners were the last two items that prevented non creative play from being able to fully take advantage of electricity. By making these additions Kaalus improves the game greatly for creative, while also giving something of a icing on the cake for challenging, survival and cruel.

          Thats just funny.. but seriously.. your lungs are inflatable and keep you afloat.. swimming just isn’t realistic.. and getting attacked in a boat is preposterous… we need iron boat.

        • Posted March 27, 2016 at 07:04 | Permalink

          You can’t float well enough to keep your head above the water without treading water or holding your breath in. Treading water can not be done indefinately because you will tire and drown. If you hold your breath then you will duck underneath when you exhale. Since you have been holding your breath you will try to breath in quickly resulting in inhalation of water which causes coughing. Coughing means your lungs empty, when they’re low enough you duck underwater and inhale more water until you drown.

        • Posted March 27, 2016 at 16:55 | Permalink

    Dear Lord Kaalus, please add an electric igniter. It isn’t as destructive or explosive as an elec. det. It would light anything flammable on fire. You could also use electricity to perhaps expand/edit the range of ignition up to 4 blocks. I know people will LOVE this feature, so please add this! Btw.

    Hi there

    While we are waiting for the new feature, I thought to post on this:

    I have basically finished my first attempt at a texture pack, but I think it is really nice. I have created quite a few of my own textures. The logs I have created and optimised so that log cabins looks great. You can see an example with my world: My Log Cabin (you can find it in Real Animation as well). My Log Cabin is quite low down in community, since it was fairly recently added.

    My texture name is Johan Real HD. It is about 42nd on the list last I checked. There is also a low quality version for slower phones. I am not sure if it is needed to have two seperate versions.

    Here is my texture pack if you want it directly:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/5l6aasxtuahuixy/Johan%20Real%20HD%201.29.pdn?dl=1

    Please let me know what you think.

  118. Posted March 24, 2016 at 11:06 | Permalink | Reply

    By the way, I have replaced many of the electronic components with paintings. The mineral blocks are made to be used as floor and wall tiles. The wood texture is my favourite. If you want it customized, let me know and I’ll try to help. I am still not sure if the coloured lead glass works. I have previously used one with a cross in. Some old textures here are now redundent, but I just left them there. The top of the oven texture is no longer used for instance. Actiually it is a bit sad.

    This is still a work in progress.

    I see that the most of the people like the Minecraft textures. Why is that? Is it because people want SC to be like MC? Personally I find it extremely boring and low quality – that is the original MC texture. People also like funy textures or old looking textures. As you can see I like it to be a bit more modern and nice looking, closer to real life. This I suppose is more for creative, but I use it in both.

    colored wires is a quite good feature. nice idea!
    I think it would be great if the painted wires aren`t in “PAINTED” ,
    but the category “PAINTED” should be removed and replaced by something like an down arrow
    at each block which can be painted. You should be able to choose which colour of a block you want to
    use in creative.

    Kaalus is there a chance we can have sepaate textures for log cores as well as a texture for a stove top on the oven. Please also include something like sulpher, salpeter, rye etc. blocks. It just give us extra textures to work with when we create custom textures. i have created tiles from diamond, iron etc. but want at least one more. My boy keeps on asking for red tile blocks. I can use something like limestone, but i would rather keep uncrafted items fairly standard.

        You would literally have to have about no life to get that far. Assuming you started that world the day Survivalcraft came out (which we all know more than likely you didn’t) you would’ve had to play about 78.53 days real time every year.

          Root your phone (Kingo Root)
          In TotalCommander got to Filesystem root/data/data/com.candyrufusgames.survivalcraft/files/Worlds
          Here you will see your worlds what you’re playing
          Open one and copy somewhere the “Project.xml” file
          Open the copied project.xml file with TotalCommander’s own editor
          In the file you can see, where you were, where you are, what are in your inventory, what are in your chests etcetc
          And you can see the description of the world
          First, you must identify your world. Search for the name.

          You can see the TotalElapsedTime.
          You can try numbers.
          Huge numbers means huge days ina the game.
          And you can disable the weather.
          You can modify the gametype and he time of day (day, sunset, sunrise etc etc).
          You can disable the adventure survival mechanics (asm). This means, if the game is Cruel, and the asm is disabled, in the game you wont be hungry and the temperature does not “hurt”you.

    I think it is a great idea to not have wires connect because I found it really annoying that both MC’s redstone and SC’s wires would always connect when they were put next to each other. I always used the project red mod to get colored wires in MC, and I’m glad that I won’t have to mod SC to get wires that didn’t always connect. Next we need bundled cables!

        Hey guys (and girls).

        We need to relax a bit. As far as I understand, Kaalus has made his money from SC and is quite well off. He does not really need more sales, although it would be nice. I might be wrong on this, but SC has become more of a hobby now. If he does anything new for us, it is actually a bonus. This could eventually kill SC, but let’s hope his love for his game is strong enough. Then there is the drive to outdo MC just because he can.

        What am I saying? Be gentle and if you (us) frustrate him enough, he might just drop the whole thing and go on a cruze with his kids and just enjoy life.

        Maybe Kaalus just needed another break or maybe one of his kids is a bit ill. Let’s not be nasty with him please. Enjoy the day.

The Biblical word can be seen as “peshach” and can be seen in other languages like “Paas” (Afrikaans and dutch). I’ll not post stuff like this again. If you want to take this further, rather contact me personally. This was just meant as a quick comment, but turned out different. Sorry for that.

          Technically, there are many theories of whee the word easter came from. Some say it’s the Anglo-Saxon Goddess for spring.

        • Posted March 28, 2016 at 20:09 | Permalink

          Well yes, Spring notifies the beginning of the mating season. Ishtar was the fertility godess in the Babilonian belief system.

          And yes, the name Easter is pagan, but not the date. (unlike christmas, which is the opposite.)

        • Posted March 28, 2016 at 19:53 | Permalink

          Sorry for being rude.. I did just google that.. There may be some credence to what you’ve said. But the I celebrate Easter as a way to give praise to His resurrection. Nothing to do with Paganism. It really boils down to what you yourself want out of the event. Again sorry for being a butt.

    Hey Kaalus, a cool feature I would like is grass and snow taking up the same place. Snow biomes look kinda odd with random squares taken out beside the tall grass. Could you make them occupy the same block like the sea urchins and water?

      or just not have tall grass in a snow biome. Like realistically if there is an area with snow every day of the year it is not likely to have grass at all.

          No one said anything about things going their way.. I’m just trying to give Kaalus some advise.. If he want’s his game to succeed then giving false hope to the few customer’s that actually care enough to be here… is bad for business.

        He wasn’t giving false hope. He does this every update, so I think even the dullest of kids will catch on to this pattern. Like Miyamoto always said “A delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever.” This can apply to updates for the most part. It won’t be ruined forever, but he would have to use just as much time fixing the issues.

      As has been noted earlier in this thread, Kaalus has done very nicely already. He probably doesn’t need to keep improving the game to live comfortably. He does it because he enjoys it, or to make even more money, or for the sake of his fans. In case the latter is the only reason left, let’s not be impatient and rude. Yes, it personally annoys me as well, but talking down to him is not going to help.

    Kaalus already finished poison,blowguns,urchinbombs,alpacas.and all that urchin stuff but his computer caught stationary fire and is now heroically fighting his evil computer that burns forever and right now kaalus as i type kaalus is fighting his computer so he can give us an update on the game and probably show us the evaporized computer along with the post.

    I (and several others) just got an email from Kaalus with a 1.30 dev build. He said not to give away the new feature, but I know that everybody will love it when the release of 1.30 comes. I’m not allowed to give copies of the APK to other people, but he said in the email that 1.30 will be released sometime in April, if no new major bugs are encountered. I hope you will enjoy the new feature as much as I did when 1.30 is out!

        Hi guys. This is the bad side of having a single developer, but there are many upsides.

        The downside is that all responsability comes down on one guys head. If he gets ill or has a crisis, the project stalls. I’ve seen people swearing and going on like babies. This is really not okay. I am also eager to see the new update, but please have grace on this guy. You do not own him! You have paid for a game that is exceptionally functional and Kaalus ows nobody nothing. The only thing you might be able to do, is to make Kaalus lose motiviation to follow through. He already said that his previous silent time was because of burnout. This might be it again and swearing will never help this situation any bit. It is extremely immature!

        Kaalus, please do not not allow these immature persons affect you in any way. When the update comes, it will come.

        • Posted April 3, 2016 at 19:13 | Permalink

          I wasn’t going on about how he owes us anything. I agree he doesn’t have to work on it at all. You took these comments out of proportion. He asked a question I answered it. Neither of us trashed him. Maybe take that anger and direct it somewhere useful like the people yelling about how Kaalus took the money and ran. They are people who need to hear this not us. I think you are a little touchy.

There was an outbreak of innapropriate worlds and Survivalcraft was just bad for those 6 Months… But I do not think he has bailed out in the middle of an update before? This is getting very very strange ussually Kaalus posts every 3-2 days but hes not posted in 23 days and hes in the middle of the best update to hit Survivalcraft… I guess we just have to be patient.

        • Posted April 7, 2016 at 14:16 | Permalink

          My post disappeared.

          I’ll have to repost. Here is an example: I’ve used this tree for my birch texture:

          I use paint.net. Select an perfect sqaure area for your texture. You can see the size on the bottom left at bounding rectangle size. You then must go to image and select crop to selection. You then need to resize it at image resize. Choose best quality and choose 64×64. Uncheck “keep aspect ration” then it is ok if it not perfectly square. Click ok.

          This is what I got:

          Click on Crtl-A to select all and click Ctrl-C to copy texture. Now create a black new canvas of say 512×512 to work in. Paste you texture a few times and place them in line to make a tree or whatever seemless texture. You’ll notice a line between the blocks that is not seemless. Now use the clone tool to get rid of this line, by cloning other parts of the tree onto the line. Ctrl-click above the area you see marked to use as a reference point. Then click on the line are and it will overwrite it with the cloned data. When you have finished, copy the botom of the one block onto your other block, so that both ends are modified. Before you begin, place a block next to your “tree” so that you will know exactly where the block ends and begins.

          You can now select the finished block and copy to wherever.

          To chanche the colours, use Adjustments, curves. Use the RGB settings for everything.

          I hope this is not to confusing.

    A change this big will strongly effect how people build their worlds. I’m working on an adventure map and a large city. If I keep working on it I might find this new update causes me to go back and rework a great part of it. I don’t think I’m the only one in this situation. This essentially means I can’t play the game at all until the new update comes out. I hate doing things over again.
    I could still play purely survival of course. Some kind of message would be great.

    There is a big problem with wordpress and using a gmail address to follow or to see replies to posts. I am following Kaalus with two email addresses, mainly because I’m struggling so many times with gmail in wordpress. On my standard email address, every single post comes through, yet on gmail, it only comes through now and again. Of the post I made about the textures map creation, only the last post came through. So rather use other email address if you want to follow Kaalus properly.

      But how do you put the texture to sc?

      • Posted April 8, 2016 at 09:54 | Permalink | Reply

        When you finished with texture, you must upload it to dropbox and then share the link. You must then copy that link and dowload it “from link.”

      • Posted April 8, 2016 at 16:46 | Permalink | Reply

        Ok, I think I understand your problem. Do you know what a texture map is? That is the png file with all the textures on it. I have posted mine earlier. You need to paste your modified texture into the texture map png file using paint.net. After you have edited that file, you need to upload it to drop box. That link must then be copied. Do that on your device with SC on it. After have copied the link to your clip board, run SC. Go to where you can download content and choose ‘from link. ‘ Paste the link by long press and choose paste. Just remember to change the last zero to a 1 and this will download the texture. You can do the same if you want to upload it to community content.

        Is that what you wanted to know? Do you know how to copy the link from drop box?

    Well, I can defiantly assure you all Kaalus is not dead (And yes I realize It’s a joke :)) I may not accurately predict what he’s doing but I’am guessing he’s living his life and taking time smoothening out bugs in the programming which (Trust me) can be proven difficult at times. Another prediction is he’s “scheduling”

    Not long ago Kaalus said “And remember how excited I was about it a week or two ago? It’s better now :-)”. So I don’t think he’s become bored or disillusioned. Of course he isn’t dead, that’s just silly. However, as Sherlock Homes said, After you remove the impossible, whatever is left, no matter how unlikely, must be the truth.

    Kaalus has temporarily cut himself off from the SC peepz.

    He won’t let us know what he’s doing because he feels like if he does, then we will insult him or something.

    So he waits until we lose interest in the next update. Then when he feels that we lost interest, he comes back and releases the update.

      Why would anyone insult him? Anyone who does insult him for anything he has ever done to this game, it’s not credible. Anyone who insults Kaalus purely for the reason that he doesn’t update his game for an extended duration of time is a disgrace to this world and is worthless. You paid for what you knew you were getting. You don’t go and pay for a game like this, thinking “Oh, I’ll just pay now and it’ll definitely get updated later”, so if you DID insult Kaalus, stfu and sit down, kid. We don’t want you here. And I’m sure Kaalus has heard or read over a thousand times that you want multiplayer. Stop it. Go play minecraft if you want multiplayer. Otherwise, shut up and wait ad quit beggin.

    BTW kaalus would tell us that the development for sculpting has canceled or tell us that everything is good, or bad. Or he’s nearly done like he usually does in close update realeses, other than that the only possibility is that something must have stopped him from working or he’s no longer working now. So there must be something and these are the reasons.

      That is highly unlikely, at least for the reasons you suggest.
      On Amazon, the game came in second in number of downloads.
      That means it had to have a minimum of several thousand downloads.
      If each download is $4 per download then Kaalus is making very good money, and that is on Amazon only.
      So sorry for my intrusion into your personal finances Kaalus but I’m glad you’ve done so well with the game. :)

Add the other platforms in, and that’s likely about a million a year. Unlikely he’d give up on his cash cow in the middle of an update… Something personally important came up.

          He is correct, I shouldn’t be swearing, but it sure is nice having the developer consistently giving up on my favourite game. I am doing this to see if he even checks his blog anymore but it seems he has quit that also.

    I agree with Pili, for god’s sake, can people please refrain themselves from such faul language, just because internet anomynizes, does not mean we should say things we would not tell eachother face to face, please, have some decency.
    Kaalus is a hard working man that have been working way too hard untill a burnout occured like he mentioned before, anyone who knows what a depression or burnout feels like can acknowledge how paralizing these things can be… (Including myself.)
    People that cannot understand should at least keep an open mind.
    We should not behave like little kids that keep whining and swearing when we don’t get enough candies…
    Something like that is called “patiënce”…
    When Kaalus needs to get a break, he needs to get a break, pushing himself beyond what is healthy is never a good thing, he is a person with feelings, not a robot, let’s treat him accordingly.
    If we lose that what makes us human, all that remains are a bunch of apes, is that how we want to identifies ourselves? Because some comments show all that.
    The game was never intended for permanent updates, those are all essentially freebies on the day we bought it, only serious bugfixes are
    to take into consideration when updating, if people do not like the game, they should not have bought it, or at least played the demo.
    Although some fear from people of losing Kaalus’s updates is understandable, but please, not everything always goes the way we want it, same thing goes for Kaalus, he did not ask for a burnout, he is equally stuck in this as well, he does not do this for bullying perposes.
    Image any of us getting all of this fame, hundreds of emails, everyone to take into consideration, while coding the game around the clock, could we handle all of that alone?
    There is only so much one person can do, the stuff that he did all by himself exceeds the stuff Mojang did with their entire foundation…
    Anyway, like Mr. Resetti, (from ACWW) I am done with my rant, and here is a comic I (hastily) made. (For a quick giggle to cheer some people up again.)

    Hey Kaalus can you give the musket either 2-3 times the durability it currently has for realism? I mean most guns can be used hundreds of times before degrading…plus iron is harder to find, making muskets almost not worth the time, plus the iron for the bullets.

        I assume this was autocorrect’s fault and you intend to type ‘Yes, that would be an excellent idea.’

        • Posted April 25, 2016 at 13:51 | Permalink

          no, I intended to write ‘fu.ck yes’ because there is no Kaalus to stop me because he has given up again.

          @Scruel you are being stupid for no reason. You should never result to swearing.

        • Posted April 26, 2016 at 10:43 | Permalink

          I have a reason. I am testing to see if Kaalus still checks his blog. Been a few days and he hasn’t taken down my trash that clearly brakes the rules. So I am being ‘stupid’ for a reason, as sh!t as it may be. Also, “never say never” -Justin Beiber, 2011.

    We can’t act like children just because Kaalus is silent. As many people have said wisely, he’s got a life too! And he has no obligation to post! He’s probably working really hard on the next update. He probably has had a very bad bug with he new feature or just a simple roadblock. He’s gonna return.

      I hope. But if he returns, it will only be an update or two before he leaves again.

    •Thirst bar (saltwater and freshwater compatible)

      Eu acho que pintar os fios de outra cor e uma boa ideia pk se eu quero os fios no mesmo sentido nao pintaeos eles ligamse e se eu pintar um de uma cor e outro de outra nao se ligam e isso e muito bom para fazer criacoes

    • Posted April 26, 2016 at 05:57 | Permalink | Reply

      I agree with all except for obsidian(not really needed), medicine(too modern), Non fake blocks in negative coordinates (These’s no need to be in negative coordinates anyway) and larger biomes(maybe optional)

    • Posted April 26, 2016 at 10:44 | Permalink | Reply

      that’s if we can make it to 1.30 without Kaalus leaving all the time.

    I Really miss kaalus now itso been such a long time

  251. Posted April 26, 2016 at 13:28 | Permalink | Reply

    Wishlist

    •Sail Boat or blocks that can float and I can build my ship from there.
    •Multiplayer (we all wanna kill each other…)
    •Wheat should drop 5-7 grains to be a better food source.
    •More crops (carrots, potatoes, etc) and more dishes (Cake, pie, cheese, etc.)
    •Baby animals, this would stop random spawning to a degree, and make cows/pigs a good food source.
    •Ways to increase health, eating right, sleeping good, exercise, just one time random things.
    •Smaller worlds, 100,000 blocks would take awhile to navigate.
    •Much larger biomes, and lose snow biomes. (North and south Pole maybe?)
    •Seasons, that would add challenge, every 30 days in game the season would changes.

    Thank you Santa Kaalus~

    You know, this could also be useful for making special “keys” for adventure maps!

    Make the color of the wires change the color that 4-LEDs display! When using colored wires for the inputs of a digital to analog converter, connecting the DAC output to a 4-LED would change the color! Make the color of the wires customizable using things like RGB values so that you can get any color on the 4-LED!
