Incendiary Explosives

Another feature for the upcoming version: incendiary explosives.

Craft them from normal explosives by adding sulphur.

They are weaker, but produce a lot of fiery red debris that flies far and wide, setting anything flammable on fire.

      It would appear to be a buffalo, which makes sense since its in a cold area.

      The model outline also matches the shape of an American buffalo, and the horns are a similar shape as far as I can tell.

      This is shaping up to be a great beginning for multiplayer. Just imagine, hundreds of players having a war around a huge map littered with bases, trenches, watchtowers, palisades etc etc. My only wish however is that everyone plays fairly and in good spirit. There’s nothing I hate more than cheaters.

        Well, hundreds of players is probably not going to happen. I’m thinking 20 will be a max for a while, if kaalus really gets the netcode down. Multiplayer is pretty hard to do, just look at space engineers

    Well since 1.30 is an update more focused for creative mode players I think that the next update will be more focused on Survival mechanics (I wish at least). There are some things that I really want to be added to the game since 1.26:

    Saddle bags: Probably the thing I want the most right now, I always wanted to make a “World exploration” world, in wich I will travel the world with my horse/camel and would camp during the night, however, this proves to be hard with limited inventory, since long-term homeless exploration needs clothing, food, resources and tools, and it’s nearly impossible to carry all these by yourself, so adding the possibilty for mounts to carry items will make long travels possible and more viable.

    Tents: Alongside with Saddle bags, tents or some kind of craftable shelter will also be nescessary, they would provide protection from mobs, would provide insulation, and would make it possible for you to sleep inside them. Kaalus could also add diferrent kinds of tents, such as tents made from leaves, canvas and leather, wich would have different perks:
    Leaves: Easy to craft, but provide weak insulation and can be easily destroyed.
    Canvas: Good insulation and slightly better protection
    Leather: Medium insulation, but the smell will scare predators away.

    Cooking on campfires: This is not only realistic and fun, but also very simple to add, Campfires should allow players to cook food on a slower rate. With the other additions above, this will make a nice camping mix.

    Bigger/More complex boats: I always liked to make sea adventure using a boat, however, with the new proper water transparency and cold, they are much harder to be done, so adding bigger boats that are more resilient to damage and have a small place for you to sleep and add 2-3 blocks such as a chest, crafting table or wicker lamp would be nice.

    Please Kaalus, consider adding at least one of the things listed above, they are simple and will make gameplay more dynamic :)

      Nice feature set there mate, definitely agree with the ‘more complex boats’ idea. I too like my seafaring expedition’s. I few months ago I submitted a ‘floating blocks’ idea so you could build custom boats :

      • Posted November 25, 2016 at 16:16 | Permalink | Reply

        I don’t think the engine supports this. However, a modern block game where you can build vehicles would do very well, all of the newer and popular titles have vehicles.

        Space engineers, star made, and others all have vehicles and physics. But nothing on mobile does to my knowledge, so while it could be impossible with current hardware, it would be a bit of a breakthrough

          Good point there ike23, I’m in the early stages of creating a water world SC style game for the Hololens and the physics behind floating blocks makes the performance horrendous so you are right there mate on a mobile device it would currently be near impossible. Hmmm thinking about it SC on the Hololens or the Vive now that would be sweet!! :)Anyway the custom sea level slider would still be doable, right?

    • Posted November 25, 2016 at 17:41 | Permalink | Reply

      By the way, a player once suggested the addition of Zip Lines to SC, and he received a lot of negative feedback, but if you come to think of it, it isn’t so unrealistic tho, we could simply craft Zip lines with multiple strings, attach one side to a tree or pole, attach the other side to an arrow, shoot it, and then climb it. This would not only make crossing/climbing mountains easier and fun but would also add more possibilities for multiplayer, for example: There are two oposing factions in a server and they both have a big fortress, one of them decides to attack the other, so they plan a nightime “ninja style” attack, and use the zip lines to invade the fortress, detonate some gunpowder kegs and then go away, this would be soooo awesome.

      So I think that zip lines aren’t a bad idea.

        Azanbasitoor, even though your idea is great, the Physics behind carriages in a block game such as Survivalcraft are massive and really hard to program, I’m not saying that this won’t be added, but in the present moment, saddle bags seems a better start.

    Whenever multiplayer is mentioned the default response seems to be something similar to this: “Kaalus said he will add multiplayer when single player is finished.” “Finished” seems to be used a lot. This is what it says on the FAQ:

    Q: When will you add multiplayer to the game?

    Multiplayer is the most often requested feature, and it also scored the highest in the feature request poll ( That said, it is also a massive thing with a high risk that would take X months to complete while Survivalcraft stands still. Therefore, before I jump in I must be reasonably sure that low hanging fruit (the easy features that give a lot of bang for the time spent) are addressed first. Bottom line is I can’t give a precise date.

    I do not need to explain that this is not the same as “when single player is finished” Sorry, it just seems a lot of people have misinterpreted this/copied what other people have said.

    Calling all challenging / cruel fans! World seed Thanksgiving (Version 1.29.20) is a fun challenge.

    You are marooned the edge of a huge snow forest. With nowhere to go you risk a run across a frozen lake to find a small hill devoid of any sustenance.

    You continue, hopeful of some pumpkins or eggs but the terrain is too hilly to attract the latter and former are terrifyingly absent.

    Then, it begins to rain.

    You continue your panicky run, stopping only to grab a few piles of wood and leaves, and finally, as the sun sets, you spy a few pumpkins.

    With time only to grab one before hurriedly digging a pitiful hole in which you will sleep, first pausing to craft a sad stone machete, your first day in this cursed place ends.

    What will you awake to tomorrow?

    Puede que nadie entienda lo que voy a escribir, sólo que quiero decir unas palabras.
    Nosotros los jugadores de survivalcraft, debemos mostrar apoyo y paciencia en las actualizaciones, no sólo decir kaloo se murió y ya, como seres humanos mostremos paciencia, algún día llegará la actualización, no importa si tarda cinco o seis meces en públicar algo, todos sabemos que kaloo es una persona que igual que todos tiene su vida y sus problemas, creó el juego por nosotros y para nosotros, el trabaja sólo ( creó? ) debemos entender que crear un juego no es fácil pero no imposible, algún día kaloo actualizará sea en el 2099 pero llegará, y en ese día todos estaremos felices por la calidad de la actualización que nos trajo kaloo, yo espero que el lea este comentario pues aquí desde costa rica, un grupo de personas te apoyan, así que por favor muestren más paciencia y respeto que kaloo nos recompensará con la 1.30 muy pronto. Muchas gracias. Y feliz navidad adelantada XD

        No lo digo con que lo actualice cada dos mil años o cuando quiera, sólo que mostremos paciencia, el sabe lo que hace y llegara el día donde actualizará y eso nos tomará de sorpresa, cada actualización requiere tiempo y dedicación por el cual siempre habrá gente diciendo que porque se tarda, se murió, etc.
        Tomemos como ejemplo minecraft Poket edición, eso lo actualizan cada rato entre cuatro a cinco días, pero que pasa, errores fatales que digo errores mejor horrores.
        Si kaloo pensará que es mejor la cantidad que la calidad, el sacaría actualizaciones cargadas de errores sin embargo el se toma el tiempo de corregirlas, algo que Mojag de MC no a hecho desde la 0.10.algo, sólo les digo paciencia que la 1.30 será algo inolvidable e igual con las futuras, además gracias por hablar español que ingles no se mucho…bueno nada.

          No digo que estés en lo incorrecto, al contrario tienes razón, pero kaalus puede combinar esto dar unas muy buenas actualizaciones cada 8 meses y postear cada 15 días para decirle al mundo que aún existe o algo así. ( darle a los fans lo que ellos quieren en la mayoria de los casos es significado de exito). Y si la verdad es que esta actualización va estar increíble, fantástica, la mejor en mi opinión hasta el momento.

          Yo te entiendo, pero ponerle algo de misterio nunca esta mal, como cuándo nos pone a adivinar la característica, de hecho si el no pública algo en varios meces puede que le parezca relevante, yo estoy bien con el juego y la espera que uno se hace con cada actualización es casi imposible, de hecho yo ya quiero tener la 1.30 pero que pasa…no esta lista así que mejor esperar y no estarse quejando que al final todo va a llegar, y claro yo igual estoy ansioso con la 1.30

    •Villages, with NPCs
    •coins, with copper, silver, gold, platinum as currency for NPC trading
    •silver and platinum ore for coins
    •More naturally generated structures (villages, abandoned ruins, boat docks, etc.)
    •Multiplayer over LAN
    •non-fake chunks in negitive coordinates
    •more musket durability
    •more traps (pressure plate explosions for instance)
    •Controller support
    •waterproof fences, chests, doors, etc
    •nerfed deserts, buffed taigas (deserts too easy, taigas too hard to survive)
    •thirst bar
    •saltwater and freshwater (blue and green)
    •less predicted rain (there is always rain at the end of the first day)
    •more interesting seeds (worlds can look extremely similar)
    •Increased tile/creature limit per chunk)
    •more wooden planks
    •decreased lag when looking at the moon
    •more plants
    •poisoning (raw food, poison arrows, etc)

      I like all except non-fake chunks in negative coordinates (why is this worth his time?) . Also, I think the slingshot should fire stone chunks. I think the similar looking worlds bug really needs to be fixed. You can create pressure plate explosion traps already. Just needs a small amount of wiring.

      Hello, I’ve created a simple, experimental, unofficial forum for members of the Survivalcraft community. I see it as having great opportunity to bring some of us, the Survivalcraft community, together. As I made it only somewhat recently, there is still a lot that has to be done so I’m requesting help. You have been chosen because after stalking kaalus’ blog for over a year now I’ve noticed you’ve been a productive member of the community.

      I need help for a variety of reasons, I would of liked to go on a little longer without help but frankly the permissions system isn’t something that I’m all that experienced with and it has gotten me a little aggravated. It’d be nice to have somebody take over it for me or even simply help me test the individual permissions so I don’t have to swap accounts every two seconds. I’d also like more people with mobile devices as I wan’t to make the forum as mobile friendly as possible. This takes a lot of testing and editing through the themes. And the plugins I use might work with my two devises but not necessarily all. As Survivalcraft was originally a mobile game anyway, and it’s user base is mostly on mobile, this is important to me.

      Even if your not all that skilled in these aspects of the forum, I still believe that with your contributions to Survivalcraft’s community already, It’d still be nice to have you along for the ride.

      If your interested please contact me through email:

      ps. I made this post to reflect to a variety of people, I have chosen you for your artwork and overall friendliness you’ve used here on the blog.

      What I think of the picture above? I was never a fan of mirrored images, I found them fun to play around with with cameras watching my head vanish. But I like the sunset and how it seems like it is going down in the center of 2 mountains. The effects make it especially pleasing. And I really like how you did Survivalcraft logo! You definitely did well :)

        I am honored to be one of the people who you have asked; however, I am not into the building and testing of forums, I know little of the html CSS and other common internet languagees thus making me a liability on your team. Sadly, I am also not good at such things as following a forum for events and activities, that is due to my inability to remember the passwords and usernames that each one requires of me. Thanks for the offer, but I respectfully decline this opportunity to be a part of your operation.

    Here are three issues at the moment with the musket.
    1) I and many others think the durability is a bit low.
    2) The buckshot gives ridiculous knockback. (20 blocks for a cow).
    3) Crouching helps you aim but you cannot crouch when holding the musket because the sneak button changes to an edit button. This means you have to switch to something else, which is awkward.

    Here is another thing not related to the musket. The ‘look’ pad in the bottom right seems never to be used as a look pad. Please reply disagreeing if you do not have ‘use entire screen to look’ enabled in settings. The main use is as a jump button. Maybe change ‘look’ to jump when ‘use entire screen to look’ is enabled? It doesn’t affect me personally as I have ‘hide move/look pads’ enabled.

    The only other current issue that I know of is the similar looking worlds with random seeds bug.

    It would be cool if we had companions that’ll mine, hunt and chop for you but would only take x amount of real time minutes to chop. Say mining takes 30 chopping take 15 min and hunting takes 2 hrs.
