I know, I need to post 2.0 changelist

Did you know that lightbulbs are now paintable, so that you can make them go nicely with colored wires?

ColoredLightbulbs.jpg

Btw. 2.0 default blocks texture is already in Files/Technical section in case you wanted to make some block textures.

There’s 95 furniture packs in Community Content already. I haven’t had time to check out most of them, but I expect the quality will be going up as people learn how to make furniture. I made some tweaks to community content during this release, so less stuff should get automatically deleted.

Windows Phone bugfix update (2.0.41) is submitted and approved, you should be getting it soon.

    I have an idea for special wire, that doesn’t connect to gates or other electrical devices. Maybe use some colored wire. Sorry, if my idea is late

    Well from my Poll: http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html?p=5851b0e5e4b0fd4a3f43d7f7 I gathered about 40% of you “Should” know about all the updates, I play in cruel mode so only the water level and temp changes in 2.0 effected my game play.

      Here’s my poll: how many more posts until he goes dark again?

      Also, cruel is now easier (again) since urchins are edible.

      For us cruel folks he should institute an animal aggression level. I know they come after you during the day if you get close but I miss the challenge of the days you have to spend most of the time fighting off the baddies.

      What do you think?

        Not really. You have to eat five sea urchins to get half a food thing. It is literally impossible to fill up on sea urchins as your body rejects them after a certain amount.

          Good know. I’ve only eaten one so far and didn’t pay attention to the hearts.

        Urchins basically are nothing in terms of nutrition.

        It didn’t make cruel easier, in fact, sharks have more opportunities to get you. That’s how I failed my first island cruel challenge

        • Posted December 17, 2016 at 13:08 | Permalink

          I increased the difficulty by raising the water level to 12. Surviving on islands requires you to island hop, and be able to hunt from a boat. That’s required a few new skill sets from me, but I’m getting there. “More difficult is more fun.” -Famous last words.

        • Posted December 18, 2016 at 14:19 | Permalink

          I used to just hunt belugas and orcas, but for cruel I didn’t want to do that. I started farming pumpkins if I find them. Urchins being added changed nothing

    It would have been great if the light colours could also be painted as well as glass. With this we could make nice coloured glass panes. Please do this!

    BTW, my texture map (Johan Real HD 2.0) as well as quite a few others are already posted. Please white list it for me. Please include some (one or two) other 64×64 (1024×1024) texture packs with the initial download.

      I have updated my texture pack so that clay works better with furniture. I’ve used the default texture for the painted clay.

      i have also added a new texture pack which gives you more colours, but only two more for furniture, brown and orange, Johan More colours.

      This is what you can do with this texture pack. i have uploaded this furniture to CC if you want it:

    Kaalus, I was messing around with tigers and it occurred to me how cool they were. I think you should make more animals be able to outrun you because in my cruel world when I hear a tiger I start panicking and frantically looking around, so it would be nice for lions, maybe wolves, etc. to be able to outrun you. This would make the game more challenging for early gamers and late gamers as it’s a problem that would always be there (unlike hunger and sleep deprivation)

    Kaalus, what about a great update for survivalist side of the game now? I think that a goal to reach (like minecraft to reach to nether and to the End and kill the dragon, but something more realistic, like return to civilization as you said some years ago, or something similar) and preferably in cruel mode (because we can’t change creative to cruel mode, what turns the challenge, the goal harder)

    BUG. Starting a fresh world, animals spawn everywhere just like they are supposed to. BUT when the world is terraformed in creative to say make a survival island. No animals spawn again in the areas that have been terraformed. Very annoying if you want to make a world for a survival map with plenty of animals to respawn continuously. Instead we end up with a dead map no good for survival. I know we can use spawn eggs but once there dead there dead that’s why we need natural spawns in these terraformed places. Just wondering if this is intentional Kaalus, or if the problem can be fixed? I think I will holt building my world untill I know. I have Already spent 100 hours plus on it. ;(

      I’ve dealt with this before. The only workaround is to start the world with dirt then edit the xml file to change to water.

      I don’t think creatures are supposed to continuously spawn like in Minecraft. Animals will only spawn when the chunks generate, and will never spawn again. There should be a world option, available in all modes, which is “Animals Respawn”.

      Of course, I could be wrong about all of this.

        No animals definitely do respawn. I have castle walls in a cruel world of mine and animals constantly spawn inside even though I have it closed off.

        Thank you, it should work in accordance to the current settings of the Piston. If you set PULL BLOCKS to 8, it’d be cool to pull up to 8 blocks regardless if there are air blocks in between. But yeah, kinda defies physics. If it’s too much, an alternative would be something simillar to Minecrafts slime blocks.

    Hi Kaalus,
    I’ve been an advent survival-er since one of the very first updates. As of recently, ive noticed you have great attentive to community ideas, and I’ve thought of a few, if you can consider.
    Eventually id like to see something where we can explore the sea more with things like:
    – seals or “fatty” aquatic mammals, or even a chance of beached orcas
    -to get animal fat to make wet suit
    -to combine animal fat with leather in the furnace to make wetsuit material

    – a full wet suit or scubba gear
    -each peice individualy enhances a under water feature, like goggles/snorkeling mask enhace underwater breathing and visabilty
    – chest peice for faster digging
    -leg piece for moving faster underwater
    -flippers for movement/depth control control
    – must have full suit to use
    – harpoon gun
    – similarly made to a muzzle loader
    – harpoons made from metal material
    – possible string attached to reel in, with a use limit on both gun, line and ammo
    – fishing pole of a sort would be nice.

    I appreciate it in advance! Any questions or feed back would be welcomed.

    Has anyone made SC2 furniture tutorial videos yet? I’d love to see how others are working! I thought if I made a 16x16x16 grid it would help me … first I made cloth rug patterns which was easy, but if I add a 4th color it says I can’t Build because it’s too complicated. Then I made a very plain chair, I painted it to have 2 colors (fake carving) and it said “too complicated” again. What are all of the limitations?? Kaalus’ TV looked more complicated, more than 4 colors. Maybe if we work on basic parameters and add to this list …

    1) size:16x16x16 blocks = 1 block for building with furniture
    – a couch, bed or long table could use 4-6 blocks to make.
    2) complexity: Kaalus describes this limitation in triangles, I admit, I’m lost on this
    3) colors: in a 16x16x1 rug block, 3 colors max. No complex patterns like “fair isle” or herringbone
    4) “Build” button: how does changing the slider affect the final size and complexity? Can I make more complex items at larger or smaller sizes?

    any answers, or add questions to this list, I’ll work on a FAQ as we learn
