Moving contraption

I suspected it’s possible but never got around to trying to make one.

Here’s a video where someone makes a travelling structure from pistons and custom switches:

You can build one and watch as it wanders off and disappears over the horizon :-)

Kudos!

    More like a slug, but hey, it moves!

    I wish he/she had left the video running longer so we could see it in action. I would have liked the time to think about the piston settings and the movement but i can just go build it myself!

    And here I am still using pistons to push animals into traps. Doh!

    Some of the things we can make now are amazing. Invisible ‘force fields’ and floating streetlights without wires. Entire houses that pop up out of the ground. Now, build this ‘car’ atop a mountain and float it around the world!

      Already planning on “sailing” to an island and back as much as I want, completely safe from anything~

      You have to watch all the video, there are several trains

      I have created a horizontal lift that can go for 128 blocks using two sets of pistons. This can even be extended. You make a cage or little room 2x2x2 with furniture and let the pistons move it. It is also a better option for lifts going very high. It also more realistic as the walls move with you like a real elevator.

    Just had a thought, if you go to sleep on top of that machine you will wake up in a completely different place, the game is fully simulated with high time acceleration while you sleep.

        Hey kaalus if there is a solid iron block will there ever be a hollow iron(etc…) block? So we could place liquids in and when activated it dispenses the liquid like lava per se. So we could have a water/lava fall but have the block unnoticeable.

        I’m unsure if you can do it with the furniture haven’t really tinkered with furniture as much as I would like to yet. I’m just in the middle of making doorways for the community.

      Wow, that’s cool, Kaalus! However, I think if you stay awake it will slowly push you off, or that’s what happened to me.

    Its great but i dont like textures being replaced by another blocks texture. In this update, the lightbulb got replaced into snow? (Not sure) i know we are running out of space in the texture file but its starting to ruining the custom textures…
    cant you, i dont know, zip two png files as one file then make it work or something?
    You said we now have bunch of more block IDs but i dont see the point of it if there are no space dor their textures :(

    And i found a bug. After you edit worlds name or seed when creating world, you cant edit the next world you are creating unless you restart the game.

    Also for next update. What about cooking meat with campfire. It should be more useful than just heat up shelter. Maybe we can craft raw stuff and a stick together to cook that on fire through. It should be great.

    Hey kaalus, if you already let us download texures and worlds, why not allow us to download small fun mods for us to play with, that we can make such as more animals, mega explosions or moving cars that you can mount on.

    • Posted January 7, 2017 at 09:52 | Permalink | Reply

      Oh and if you add a setting to improve texure, why not make it really realistic for high end devices, the texures could be like shaders, so darker and moving shadows when sunsets, the leaves on trees can sway around a lil but alot on a stormy day or make explosions more vibrant and dynamic, and i know what I’ve said is alot of work to make but your a one man making this awesome game and its better than mcpe so i think everyone would be excited for a update like this^

    See this page on the wiki for improvements to this design:
    http://survivalcraftgame.wikia.com/wiki/Piston_Vehicles
    I figured out how to increase the speed and to make it reliably carry the character.

      cool dude i found a way to make it only a 1 by 1 by 3 engine vary compact 2 pistons one pulling one standard with a funiture switch in between to start it activate normal piston.

    Hey guys wassup!!! I m back with a good news and a bad news.Lets go with the good one first.

    Good news:
    Today I was thinking about the SC editor of Tipam and why he abandoned it.While thinking i thought about making my own editor for SC.But I m new in Android development and know a basic java.So…I had to forget about that and had to thought about a new one.So…I decided to make a vicle design app as there are no apps out there for any SC building design or any such.

    Conclusion:I m making a SCVD(SurvivalCraft Vicle Design).It will only be available for Android(means on iOS/Windows).I started to code it right after I decided to make it.Its in alpha version.I m the only devoloper of it so it’ll take some time.
    Give me some best luck so that i doesn’t abondoned it.

    Bad news:
    I love GTA and u guys know that.As u guys know that I was building GTA 5 for SC at a scale of 1:1.But I had to abondon it due to heavy lagging.I have a weak device and GTA 5 contained too much electronical resources that’s why my device couldn’t handle it and Everytime I run it my game hangs and crashes.

    Conclusion:GTA 5 is abandoned due to heavy lagging.
    I will have to buy a new beast device.

    I m sorry for abandoning GTA 5 but the reasons r mentioned above.

    Not my fault.

    Pray for SCVD.Its under heavy devolopment.

    It’s present apk size is 6+ MB.
    It doesn’t contain any in-app purchase or any ads.its totally free for u guys.

    TAKE CARE.

    BA BYE.

    HAVE A GOOD DAY.

    😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😎
