Furniture

Here’s part 1 of furniture video for you:

This video covers the basics. I had this in mind when I first thought of this feature. As I was working on it I found that there are many cool things you can do with furniture. Wait for the next videos to see what I mean.

In the meantime I am working on the next big feature for the update.

      WOW indeed! 😃 If I understand correctly, we can build an object up to 16×16 then whack it with the furniture hammer and instantly have a tiny copy of our object??!! I see LOTS of pixel art in my Survivalcraft future! And architectural details. And lovely furniture. And and and … 😄

        I am already making a flat world with spacers for 16x16x16, so I can have objects ready to hit with the furniture hammer!!

        Thank you so much Kaalus!!!!! 👍 👏 ☺️

      I assume since the materials carried their values over (like their flammability and paint ability) then it’ll depend on what the bed is.

      Justin – what do you mean? I’m admin at the wiki. We usually don’t get icons until Kaalus releases them, or someone takes the time to make them up.

      Do you want to upload a pic there, or what? It’s really easy. If you want help, it’s best to respond to my wall there – I usually don’t check the comments here – they’re so often just ‘gimme-gimme-gimme!’.

    How does making furniture out of water and lava work

    • Posted May 21, 2016 at 20:45 | Permalink | Reply

      I am guessing making furniture out of lava was not his idea for the liquids. I am guessing he was simply thinking that we could make structures for architectural builds using liquids. For example you could make a glass type tower that had Lava or Water in it, and then shrink it to have a small tower with Lava/Water. I think he was simple saying Lava/Water was compatible with the whole shrinking process.

    “Vertical” Slabs, Glass panes, Glass Stairs and Slabs, Iron Stairs and Slabs, Bookshelves, blocks made from magma and basalt, Aquarium, Tables, Armchairs… The possibilities are endless… The Only limit is your fantasy!

    It dosent really have to be furniture does it? I’m thinking since you have to make a large thing, then it shrinks down… I’m thinking very detailed little stuff, I.e elf house or life size statues.

      The complexity is limited to 300 triangles, but you could build parts of it and put it together at the end to make something complex like a house

Like paintings, or figurines, or mini trees, or other decorative stuff :D And remember that the blocks can apparently interact with electricity too, obviously we don’t know the specifics of that yet, but I can already think of many things you could do!

    I feel like if/when they game has multiplayer, it’s going to be more like a whole new virtual reality opening where you can meet new people and explore. Kinda like the game Second Life. Imagine the amount of metropolis worlds the game will have with the teamwork of many people working all at once. It sounds really cool.
    I hope you’re postponing multiplayer for a while. It has tons of potential; but if you release something of the sort too soon it might become another Minecraft.

    Is a standard SC block 16x16x16? I assumed so, then made a template world – looking forward to the furniture hammer! Maybe 4-8 templates, so I can make matching sets side by side. (pic below)

    To make the templates, I’m making 17x17x17 boxes from materials Kaalus did NOT list as being available for furniture: windows (with wood, not just glass) and dispensers. The ground is dirt blocks, just as in Kaalus’ video. I marked the centers (blocks 8 and 9). I hope the Windows don’t count as glass, don’t want the templates becoming part of the furniture 😉

    I made a bed, well under the maximum size. But what I don’t know is, how many triangles are involved in a 16x16x16? Kaalus said 300 max. I don’t know how to calculate that yet. My bed might be over 300?

    (not sure how to post a pic here, forgive if double-posted)

    This furniture update is going to be awesome for us speed builders! Next I’m going to make an electric lamp that can sit on a table.

    • Posted May 22, 2016 at 11:25 | Permalink | Reply

      1) Yes it’s is More than 300…
      2) IIRC Kaalus said that “partial” blocks cannot be used for furniture, so I think that Slabs and Stairs cannot be used…

      Cut the bed in half, and in the furniture editing mode just move both pieces to the very edge, so then you can place it as two blocks and it will look like one, making it less complex

      Posted May 26, 2016 at 23:26 | Permalink | Reply

      It’s very simple actually. You count the number of visible faces, and multiply by two. A face is any rectangular area of the same texture. So a 3*3*3 cube would have 12 faces, just like a single cube, (assuming Kaalus has maximized efficiency). However, an L shaped face, for example, is actually two faces, because faces must be rectangular.

    Warning!!!
    The chair he had 94 triangles before random painting!
    After it had 170!
    Mabe detailed paintings won’t be as, well, detailed as we might want…
    With this triangle limit, we may not have as much freedom as we might need for an art museum like I was hoping
    What really makes me sad is that I thought that triangles were purely because of the geometry limit, but instead it is much more complicated than just that…

      You could just tile your image using multiple blocks.

      If sharing, name with row/column info. Ex: (ASSUMING we can hang these above ground) a landscape picture of 2 blocks tall by 3 blocks wide, 6 items would be named:
      Picr1c1
      Picr1c2
      Picr1c3
      Picr2c1
      Picr2c2
      Picr2c3

      A bit tedious, but could work!

    Can you make the triangle limit more than 300. I ask this because when the chair wasn’t painted it had 94 triangles, when it was painted it had 170 triangles. So if the limit is 300 we might have less freedom to customize our furniture.

    It’s awesome! Much more awesome than I expected! I can’t wait for the new update! But will it be possible to make a working TV? I remember Kaalus saying you would be able to use electricity, so it might be possible. Also, you might be able to connect two furniture blocks (assuming it’s made to be connected) to make the space 16x16x32, so it will be possible to make stuff like the bed in Minecraft. Guys, tell me If my ideas are good.

    Really really nice!

    “The collision box is automatically made to fit as much as possible.”

    Does this mean your creation “expands to fit” and will always be the size of a full block? This means a cell phone using say just 1x2x4 would still come out giant, 1 whole block high? Half as tall as Phil (my name for our guy)?

    Not whining just wondering. Sorry if this is a dup question.

      If you make the “resolution” 16x16x16, then the object is you made would be small, but if you make the “resolution” lower, then it would come out giant, because if you make the “resolution” smaller than one block then the phone would be stretched to the size of a one block, at least that’s how I think it works.

      No. I believe that he means the player collision box being able to collide with the furniture properly.

      If you look at the video, when he walks over the chair, you can see that the collision box is more complex than just a box. Its probably like a mesh collision or similar.

      The other answers are correct. The collision box is always different from the graphics, in any game. (For performance reasons.) But here it will actually be the same, so you could make ramps, much smoother than stairs.

      Idk, the custom blocks should be just as easy to show as any 3d model or glass block. It doesn’t make too much sense to add a limit, especially on PC version

      If there is a small limit to these things pee world it would be horrible. If there is a limit it will be per chunk, which is 16x16x A, a being the height of a chunk.
      A limit per world doesn’t make sense and would ruin the new feature for me

      • Posted June 5, 2016 at 18:11 | Permalink | Reply

        I think you do not understand how this works. The performance of your device is not the reason for the limit, the bits are. The reason Kaalus needed 32 bit for this feature, was the very limit itself. Every block he created as well as every custom block you will create, needs an ID. That is why he has increased the amount of blocks you can have. He said that he was thinking of going for 512 or 1024 ID’s. There should be quite a few custom blocks that you can create.

        He did however say that if you create furniture without saving it as an ID, the furniture disappear from the list. Maybe it means that it will still be where you have placed it, although I doubt it. For the engine to recreate the furniture, it must get the information somewhere. The only place I can see it can get it, is from the block ID’s. There has to be a limit, there is always a limit on anything.

    I have 2 questions about the feature: 1. Once we have something in design and have the hammer (not creative mode) can we just make it with the resources taken from our inventory? It would be a pain to have to build the objects then shrink them … 2. Kaalus mentioned blocks retain their properties (such as color and water stays moving) So lava should make a good heat generator and sand should break away from the object? I guess the second question is how do these new structures interact with each other and their environment?

    • Posted May 27, 2016 at 04:36 | Permalink | Reply

      1. It seems the hammer is the SC form of Wonkavision, it shrinks things 🤓
      2. since he said electrics are involved, I’m hoping lanterns can be made. imagine glass surrounding lava, glow stones or lightbulbs. not sure if the lava would generate heat, though, but perhaps burning coal would have both heat and light? I can see all sorts of lanterns, basic and electric. no more of that wicker block lantern.

    i have suggestion, kaalus. Can you make grass blocks craftable? Perhaps it could be done by placing a dirtblock and a piece of tall grass or tall grass seeds in the crafting grid? It would be very useful for building.

  79. Posted May 26, 2016 at 00:40 | Permalink | Reply

    What happens when you make a block with let’s say coper and glass?
    Will the block take on the properties of coper or glass?
    Is there a dominant block property and a recessive one?
    I am hoping that the blocks take on the properties of the stronger parts that they are made of; however, a chain is only as strong as it’s weakest link….
    This worries me grately….
    If some of my other predictions are correct, such as all furniture having a universal set of properties applied to all regardless of block make up, it would ruin all my plans for future use such as bullet proof windows with a coper frame to protect against explosion or things like that…
    My suggestion to you is to make a dominant and recessive block property so that all furniture will have strengths and weaknesses that we can work with to build great things…
    Please take this into consideration

    Kaalus, why do you have to have limits I everything! World limit, creature limit, magnet limit, and now triangle limit. All devices and computers can handle different amounts of these things so I think it would be best if you removed these limits or at least increased them a lot.

    • Posted May 27, 2016 at 08:00 | Permalink | Reply

      These things are very memory intensive. Not all devices have 6G of Ram. Most devices still have less that 3G of RAM. This also takes a lot of processing power. Even my Note 3, although old, is still regarded as a powerful device and if II have a lot of complicated electronics, my game becomes sluggish. Most devices out there are still slower that the Note 3.

      I would though like it if the height limit would be increased so that we can have higher mountains.

        You’re right, maybe the limits could only be increased on computer? But then again, MC:PE has no limits for worlds, creatures, or anything else which they could put a limit on, but don’t. The limit (for SC) could also be a slider in the options, which would be set automatically the first time you launched the game based on how much memory was available, but could then be changed later.

        • Posted May 30, 2016 at 06:23 | Permalink

          Limits will only be removed if you got 4GB ram and 16GB rom.Limits is enabled when your device is low.Because SC is a High HD game than minecraft thats why the slow phones have limits.

    Thin glass is now possible, you can make windows that aren’t one meter thick. Detailed blocks for models. You can even make walls that are a few pixels thick instead of one meter. This means that building will be so much more customized. This can be used in survival in the age old tradition of house building. I am glad about the one pixel thick glass possibility. It would be amazing if we could make pipes for item sorting

        Well, we haven’t seen a limit, and animals really have no comparison. Kaalus hasn’t mentioned it iirc.

        But uts basically adding a new block to the game, the problem most likely would bee the amount of triangles needed and that means less fps if you place too many, but most partial blocks are like that as well. Making a vertical slab shouldn’t do anything more to the FPS than a normal slab, its the same amount of triangles.

        He has yet to be given a name…
        I want to have his name be something connected to words meaning sadness, regret, and pure quandary …
        I want my character to be somehow iconic of Survivalcraft but I have no way of getting this on the internet for all to see
        Other than having it on their site for a couple of days… or weeks…. before special K posts again
        After that happens, it is likely forgotten about by those who happened to see it on this site…

    Here’s what I would like to see for 1.31:
    Backpacks!!
    An extra 16 inventory slots when put on your torso armour slot. Made from leather, cloth and string.
    However, the more item that are in the bag the slower you become.
    Eg.
    25% full (4/16 slots)= -5% speed
    50% full (8/16 slots)= -7% speed
    75% full (12/16 slots)= -10% speed
    100% full (all 16 slots)= -13% speed

    All varieties are added the your armor weight as well, so you can get pretty slow.

    Thumbs up to my idea?

          Better is always very relative. Technically speaking MC has way more features. For me, SC is better because of the realism. I do not like fairytales and monsters, spells and incantations. If anybody likes all this evil stuff, they must go ahead. For me, I do not like it at all. Except for the werewolves, SC is very realistic. I know that you can get mods to do the same (I think), but just the fact that my kids can access the rubish, is a no no for me.

    Hi everyone
    i want to build the whole city of rapture (underwater city). And there are many windows to see whats going on on the ground of the sea. Now i have two questions. Is it possible to overwork the water in survivalcraft. If you build a glasswall (window) there is always this: http://i.imgur.com/Z6fY1ZV.jpg or this http://imgur.com/7brpDoX Now i want to ask if you can make that its clear water not a waterfall :D We could not see outside. And another thing is the “waterdistance” you only can see few blocks in front of you but in real life you cloud see wider. I think you should add a feature in the menu that defines the “waterseedistance”. And my second question is can we place furniture in the water? Have a nice day! smak15

        Except for that you can mod MC:PE to not only add custom blocks, but also mobs and tools and dimensions and crafting recipes and and and…

          Yes but any MCPE mod could be a virus. There is no way to secrete malware in furniture in SC. If ultimate moddability is what you really care about, play Minecraft Pi Edition. It has a built in API for Python (I think it also has one for C and Java). I modified someone else’s natural disasters script. It used to be just earthquake, sinkhole, meteor, meteor shower, tsunami, geyser and heatwave. I added blizzard, flood, lighting, huge meteor, thunderstorm, sandstorm and tornado (I think, I have probably missed something). Someone made an animation of a scene from Star Wars. Oh, yes, and it’s free. If you want a safe, mostly unmodifiable, fun game: choose SC.

          If installed using Forge (PC) or BlockLauncher (PE), mods are gauranteed not to have viri (more than 1virus). Mods installed any other way are different though, a lot of the time people will make a “Minecraft Better Dogs Mod” app on play store that is actually a virus.

    I have a suggestion. We have rare animals of the sea and land, but no rare creatures of the skies. I was thinking Kaalus could add pegasi, dragons, and/or hippogriffs.

      I enjoy the fact that this is the only Christian friendly block game on the app store, however, putting such satanic creatures into it would ruin that for me and many others,
      My suggestion: albino Ravins ;-)

      Or even a parrot that tends to follow you around but doesn’t lay eggs and doesn’t do anything helpful to you :-)

        100% agree. Even the werewolves are too much for me. I think he is missing the point of SC, it is realistic, whereas MC is for people who love fairies and stuff.

      I have played many hours in one game and I only found 9 pieces of iron and I think 15 pieces of germanium. I did however find quite a bit of copper. But yes, resources are now a bit too scarce. I found zero diamons. I dug plenty of tunnels and explored a huge cave, yet found very little resources. At least I had a lot stone etc.

      Malachite is now found in the granite layer. And the shade of green with the shade of granite gray makes it hard for some people to spot. I’ve heard it has to do with colorblindness. I can see it fine, if I look closer.

    Er I’m slightly colorblind, (yeah I can still see all the colours) but it’s sometimes hard to spot malachite in the granite…especially from a distance or in low lighting. Maybe a texture change? For now I prefer texture packs that make it easier to spot.

    Hi!

    I have a request:
    Make the “dispenser” same to the “chest”.
    I can’t throw anything into it (dispenser).
    I can throw anything into the chest, but i can’t do it with dispenser.

    So, if You do this, i can build a lamp like this:

    I will build it 4 dispensers. Let call it “4dispenserlamp”
    1st dispenser shots to 2nd dispenser and
    2nd dispenser shots to 3rd dispenser and
    3rd dispenser shots to 4th dispenser and
    4th dispenser shots to 1st dispenser.

    The “bullet” are made from glass and lava.
    I hope, when it shots out from dispenser, it will light. Because now, when you shots “wicker lamp” it not light.
    Or made from “lightbulb”, “switch”, “electric wire” and “wire through semiconductor”.
    Or made from “4dispenserlamp” what made with furniture, so it will be 1 block small, and shots continous, and lights. So if the “4dispenserlamp” shots “4dispenserlamp” it will looks like umm…. i don’t know….
    [i hope you understand, what i want to tell]
    [excuse me for language faults]

    So,
    Please, do this.
    Thank You!

    Who of you still uses the default texture pack or just minicraft texture. It seems stabs to me that people find the default texture pack as sufficient. It so plain.

        There was an autocorrect typing error, “stabs” should be “strange.” Anyway, Drake as far as I know, you made the MC texture pack. You are free to use it, I just don’t like the default textures and MC is also very “default.” I am just trying to understand why people like the default textures, especially the SC one. The default texture is really very low quality. Why has Kaalus never tried to upgrade the quality on it? Is it because he wants it to look very similar to MC?

        • Posted June 6, 2016 at 16:03 | Permalink

          He made the block quality higher in 1.25. Any more might either take up more storage space or FPS drops (less likely)

    • Posted June 9, 2016 at 15:54 | Permalink | Reply

      I prefer the default texture. I like the simplicity of it. I honestly think most other texture packs are ugly because they are way too complex. In the default texture everything just fits together.

  132. Posted June 6, 2016 at 16:04 | Permalink | Reply

    Do you believe that I don’t like the MC Default Texture Pack for myself? I just do it simply because a lot of people use it and I think that is perfect for kids or for people who like both SC and MC…

    And about the Quality of the Default Texture, I want to remind that Before 1.25~1.26 the Resolution of the Default Texture was the same of MC…

  133. Posted June 6, 2016 at 16:05 | Permalink | Reply

    I mean back then I even noticed that the game got slower compared to 1.24 (in my case.) I was forced to go from 128 block view distance to 96 block view distance, to keep 60 FPS.

    Hey guys! Today, I have made a discovery!

        If you copy then paste the Faithful32 textures into the SurvivalCraft ones, the lighting and shadows fit, so Kaalus probably intentionally did it, I’m not saying that Kaalus is bad, but I think what he did is wrong.

    2016 – the year of VR – I’ve closely followed VR sites and news about virtual reality and AR(argumentative reality) and I don’t believe 2016 will be the biggest year for VR. It is certainly a good year for HMDs but not VR as a whole, I’m thinking it is coming soon though and that is isn’t just a dream. Survival Craft is an AWESOME single player game.. This alone ported into VR would be a hit… but you have a “once in a life time chance” kaalus. (I’m not saying give up on mobile/reg versions). But if you took your time NOW to develop survival craft VR and release it in a few years and (PROPERly) make a VR WORLD platform in real VR …. it will be unimaginable.

    I’m a huge minecraft player. I love minecraft, and when I heard minecraft for VR was coming in the near-ish future I was sooo excited. But my dreams aren’t satisfied. Minecraft VR from what I know isn’t what I wan’t in a VR experience. Ya I’d prefer to play with a HMD as a screen compared to a moditer… but it is still just a screen. Currently with the Minecraft Gear VR that is ported from pocket/win10 edition you need to use a controller to use most features. I’m not saying don’t do this, I’m just saying don’t encourage it. I think you’ll understand better if I explain my recent dream of survival craft in vr.

    When I’m out of High School I already know I want to get involved with VR. My current dream vr hardware(together) is Fove(witch I have a strange fondness over more then the StarVR for reasons hard to explain) or Star VR (That also has a wider view angle). Then I’m a Huge Fan if the Tesla suit <3 (witch basically makes you feel the presence of a virtual object to an extent + has heat/cooling systems so you can feel it to an extent). Then I'd also like basic sensors/trackers at/around main body parts/joints. A vr treadmill that's either KAT walk or Siberous Virtualizer (sorry for spelling,this is all coming from my head), and something like the dexma(stops finger joints when holding virtual objects but I'd like a more compact way to hold all major joints). This hardware combined could give you a very high immersive gameplay that makes you feel inside the virtual world better than anything before. I wouldn't even mind spending $5,000 (USD) on all the hardware to immerse myself into a virtual world whenever i want. This is the 21st sentry and currently I'm disgusted with the world. I live in america and even our history isn't anything to be proud of… How many Americans do you think would say the are disgusted about there own country(I could go on and on but i'll stop here). This might just be me but 50% of the time I see some cool invention or company I'm interested in it is from California or Idaho. Even the old California's governor was cool, read this post: http://www.newsweek.com/arnold-schwarzenegger-doesnt-give-damn-if-you-dont-believe-climate-change-402243 When I first saw his fb post on this issue I never before payed attention to climate change/global worming, I knew it existed but never payed attention. Now after opening my eyes more and after stumbling apon a series of articles I'm disgusted in the world. Instead of going on and on I'm deciding to stop here as this is not what this post is about. Anyhow I see vr as a good leap, and I really want survival craft to be apart of it.

    Above I mentioned a lot of vr hardware and with them put together you could have a really clean vr experience. I'd like support for as much vr hardware as possible, but, I don't know about you but I'd like to play in vr without using a hand held controller. If you ever listen to this(mine) 15 year old's dreams, I'd like for you to use something like software+hardware verification codes. I'm not against letting people with lower end hardware play. Some people just can't afford it, but it would be nice for server owners to block unverified hardware and software, Or limit it to only verified HMDs or if there is a verified hardware/software then ended up having critical bugs in the current version that might effect the server or its gameplay so they might block it for some time. This could be useful to stop a good portion of hackers and even limit gameplay to someone who wants all players to have a more realistic vr experience in there world. Maybe a sports/minigame based server wants all there members to at least have treadmill so they can legitimately get tired or something. I'd also like to see benefits for certain hardware like maybe being able to control how your arms move or have better speed/crouch control for supported hardware!

    A lot can be done with bukkit mincraft servers. Survival Craft can become a fabulous, famous, creative platform. Personally I'm a huge Fan of Foveated Rendering and eye tracking in vr. There are two main companies/future headsets with this possibility, Fove, and StarVR. I honestly think VR should steer away from what the industry it is becoming now. Anyhow, I know this is asking a lot but multiplayer + VR + Creative Building game= Worthwhile VR experience. There can be whole world Generated in VR, let me repeat VIRTUAL REALITY. If People could host there own servers with a way to slightly modify some of the game attributes similar to plugins in minecraft they could create there own worlds and have it easily accessible to people across the county or even the world in there OWN virtual world. (keep in mind I'm a vanilla minecraft fan, I'm slightly disgusted in what bukkit has done to the minecraft community).It is unimaginable what the community could do. But a free access to change a little bit of how the game works in a virtual world to share with others is something I couldn't ask anyone to pass up. It'd be nice if you were to add something like bukkit for survival craft servers if you ever accept this idea. I know some might want the game to stick to the original game. To an extent I want that too. But survival craft as an online platform and make it so you can spawn somewhere and fight in a prehistoric war with a team untill death. and be able to reset it so you can play again with everything it was like before the battle. Or make it so there is a series of quests you can follow in a player created, multiplayer rpg world. Or add in an economy/money system into a world… I'd really want something like that in vr, If you have that chance to give the community that, I'd say do it!

    VR in a regular single player world can be fun too. I don't want it to seem as if I lost track of what the original game is supposed to be. Some benefits for using vr hardware in regular SC might include a different tiring system/none at all. The current treadmills that are popular let you actually walk around. Some even jump. I think it would be cool to let players run freely to there own extremes while using these types of VR hardware. Also with eye tracking, you could punch blocks you are looking at instead of where your head is pointing. Or have a vr glove that places/mines block to a more realistic feel. If your all suited up with vr hardware, you could move your virtual limbs freely (this would be cool in the zoomed out mode). Swings swords at a realistic speed, load ammo to weapons quicker(ish), or even throw a spear at a rate that doesn't go full speed/ as far as clicking somewhere on a screen would automatically send it … Imagine the possibilities.

        Virtual Reality isn’t a console but it does usually require a decent pc (computer). Virtual Reality is usually accessed by buying a Head mounted display that immerses yourself into the virtual world. (you can see and look around in a place that isn’t really there, with new technology you can even walk around and sense where your body limbs are!)

I’d also like to point out that this whole post is about virtual reality and I only mentioned AR once or twice. :)

    I can’t believe Kaalus is still calling the game “SURVIVAL”craft it’s just because there’s nothing good in its survival in Survivalcraft, why not anything else like… Creaticraft? If the survival is so bad then why not improve it? Naming it something that suits it’s cool new features! Right? I stopped playing the game but still I’m keeping it. I waited for nearly more than 2 years for something cool to happen I rather played a different 85% survival realism stuff.

        Yes you are right because he is the only one who develops Survivalcraft Only one. But yeah, why he is the only one without supporters?

      Since we have wheat/flour, eggs, milk, and pumpkins, maybe we should have pumpkin-pie as a possibility to craft once you have all of the components? Or combine beef or chicken with dough to create pot-pies? Or various kinds of restorative teas made from buckets of water boiled with various plant matter (flowers?).

      Personally I’d like the option to brew coffee but I think that’s not in the cards.

    Will you add swimming and climbing animation? Looks pretty neat in this game. Also add more biomes and terrain features such as Savannah, Extreme Hills, Volcano, Deep lake, River, Coral reef, Swampland, Rainforest, Underwater caverns, and Rift valley. It depends on you after all :P

    Some things SurvivalCraft needs (or would be awesome) :
    1: SCOPED RIFLES (NEEDED)
    2: Ships (Not needed but would be awesome)
    3: Good sized Islands Generating in the ocean
    4: Palm trees (Also Not needed)
    5: Deer (does and bucks) (also not needed but I went hunting this morning so :3)
    6: Where you could shrink a massive electric circuit you made into a small circuit. This would be g
    reat in 1.30 if you didn’t already add that.
