JB modern house

I’ve been looking through community content, and there are some great new builds there. If you haven’t seen “JB modern house” (it’s near the top) – check it out.

It has loads of awesome modern furniture. Computers, offices, TVs, bathrooms, kitchens, living areas, leisure areas. Must have taken huge amount of work. Kudos to JB!

If you have good ideas on how to further improve furniture in the following updates – please let me know in comments. I am after realistic and workable stuff, ideally from people who spent some time making furniture. Experience is scarce at the moment. Please, no random lists full of rayguns, jedis, and star treks :-)

Btw. I’ve unpinned a lot of old cruft in Community Content so that it does not hog the top of the list. There’s now less than 30 items permanently pinned to the top as opposed to hundreds before 2.0 update.

    Some news?

    And please, increase polygon’s limit..

      And yes, i have ideas! I sent it to your mail, but i can repeat it here.

      Make “chest furniture”, combination of furniture and chest in crafting table. Maybe some “presure plate furniture”, light from lava blocks in furniture and transparent liquid, if it’s possible.

        Another idea: craft furniture with machete, spears and etc. Yes, it’s sound stupid and maybe too naive, but it’s allow make custom weapon and tools.

        • Posted January 8, 2017 at 21:00 | Permalink

          Perhaps it could be that you put your furniture item and a weapon, say an iron machete, in a crafting grid it will create “weapon furniture” or something like that. It keeps the shape of the furniture, but also take the attack damage of the weapon it was combined with. Takes the durability as well so you dont get infinite weapon! After durability runs out, it could become regular furniture again, and you would have to re combine it with a weapon. Sounds reall cool to me, but just a thought)

      I mean polygon limits per chunk, not per furniture.

      Another bunch of ideas: crafting furniture with battery. This furniture will power nearby wires with a constant signal. Crafting furniture with boat, that make possible to “ride” our furniture.

      Sorry for tons comments and bad english ;)

      You’d just need to get the resources from it. Automatic mining here we go!
      This would actually be an incentive in survival mode to get the rarer minerals.

    My one request, analog furniture, it is necessary for me to have this such that I may make a color panel display for tomorrow’s next wave of electronic devices.

    With a painted clay display I could make the classic snake game, Tetris, and with much hope and optimism an SC clone in 2D within SC. This is only possible with analog furnitur.

    I really like the furniture update but it increases the problem that building in survivalcraft takes a lot of time. I know the next update is supposed to be survival mode focused, but perhaps add a feature to help build massive objects. For example: you could set a boundary area and instead of manually filling it in, there would be a button for autofill.

    The other thing you mentioned is that there’s a limit to the placed furniture in the world and people were disappointed because they wanted to make things like shingles or half walls. Perhaps it would be possible to create recipes for more popular and useful furniture items to circumvent this.

    Hello kaalus, I hope you read this comment and add it in the 2.1, survivalcraft needs more options of plantations as they are very scarce as in the variety of food at the game level, I hope you read this and greetings from costa rica
    Examples of planting:
    Carrots with 0.2 nutrition, potato with 0.1 and cooked with 0.3, cucumber with 0.1.5, pineapple with 0.2, among many more, another thing is that if you can put that the character needs to drink water, that would be More realistic and at the same time difficult, you very much

    Hey Kaalus :)

    – would be nice if we can craft “furniture” and NOT gate together to make custom NOT gate. it would be really usefull ta have NOT gate that gives u electricity in every direction

    – make n-state furniture possible to craft with button and switch

    – If n-state furniture is connected to any electrical device – gate, wire, etc. then player sholdnt be allowed to change it state manually – the same way as iron door work
    i wanted make custom display but realized that player can change it state by simply tapping it and it just go out of sync with my circuit

    – tweak the way how button works – it should give signal as long as u hold ur finger on it (so we can make taptap music games and other cool things :P )

    – add one block size colored led display – color should be controlled by analog signal

    – find someone who can work with you, this game is so much better than minecrap, it just need more coder love :)

    – move forum somewhere else, Lefora sucks

    thank u and sorry 4 my english

    yes, I know people are requesting ways on how to improve furniture, but these ideas/features would ggo well in 2.1 as it is survival manly based: 1. backpacks 2. an option to customize how much rain particles there are when it rains 3. hang gliders I’m not so for sure this have any thing to do with survival, but kaalus you should still add them in 2.1: basalt cobble stone and more paint colors of wires and kaalus are thereany generated structers coming in the update?

        I’ve seen one negative rating on Google for the scarcity of iron. I think I agree, not with the low rating, but with the iron. Since the resources with minimised, iron especially has become very scarce. I agree that a reduction was needed, but now I also struggle a lot to find iron. In one game that i played for a few weeks, I found a total of only 11 chucks. In my last game I was lucky and found about 27. So for me making muskets etc are out of the question. i also think that pistons are too expensive or Germanium too scarce. I also could not find any saltpetre in my last game and I dug around quite a lot looking for it.

        Maybe we could look at this in the next update.

          People who think iron is scarce are not properly exploring caverns. You can get quite deep underground using existing caverns which twist and turn underground. I was annoyed, too, when iron and malachite switched spawn positions in terms of the number of blocks they are down. Iron is often exposed in mine walls, ceiling, and /or floor. You should be able to find most minerals in any cavern that is a system of tunnels. If you explore one and don’t find minerals, you need to check other mountains, in order to locate a “good one”. Now that sticks are more plentiful, I will have torches / camp fires while exploring. Watch out for sheer drops and lava, under ground. Also you can sleep on as little as one wood block, so sleep near the entrance to your mine, so you can spawn again close-by if you should “buy the farm.”

    Please add furniture chests, maybe custom food, this would work by you making the furniture model, then crafting it with an item you could add called the food block or something, meaning it’s edible, also make it so you can edit the food block to restore a certain amount of hunger. Then you can craft it with a spawned egg to make the animal drop the food, or mix it with a plant to make the plant drop it when it’s harvested, or just create a crafting recipe from items in the game. (won’t let you chose a recipe that’s already in the game) tell me if this makes sense, I don’t think I wrote it so well.

    What if you make furniture able to be imported into challenging worlds, but make them only craftable with a hammer and maybe something like you have to have the material that maes up the majority of the furniture. So you make a chair made of 40% stone and 60% planks, you would need planks to build it. That would be awesome!

    Hi kaalus
    custom wire through will help a lot for example wire through L,X,T so like that the wire are inside the wall
    Make the furniture that isn’t wood fire proof
    Custom lamps with electricity

    Community content:

    Please give us the option to change our ratings. I know this will require quite a bit of a database and will probably also stop ratings being duplicated by multiple devices on one account. But it is frustrating that I cannot change my vote. Maybe I’ve given somebody a bad rating and now they improved. What then? This is not a serious problem, but somewhere in the future would be nice.

    Also add an option to add text (or file attachment) to worlds, textures etc and especially furniture. Sometimes furniture needs instructions on how to assemble the different parts or even what texture to use with specific furniture. Not everybody reads this blog.

    We also need an option to follow a blog post without having to reply every time.

    I have made a horizontal lift with a double set of pistons. You can use this with vertical lifts as well. This is the best way to make lifts as it is more realistic where walls do not need to move when you are inside the “cage” created with furniture. You can also add more pistons and let a piston push you into a new set of pistons:

      1. Before Kaalus put in a search option, he should first put in an option to add text to a community item to describe or give instructions. Then the search option can integrate it as well.

      2. I know a lot of people want more colours, especially orange and black, but until we 64 bit blocks, this cannot happen. The only way is to change the textures or for Kaalus to add extra coloured blocks, which is not such a way-out idea.

      I have created a texture pack called Johan more colours. I have changed most of the ore’s into different colours, but also iron and malachite blocks to orange and brown. These will be the only colours that can be used in furniture as ores cannot be.

      Let me know if someone wants a texture pack where only the brown and orange colours are changed and the ores not. I think in creative the ores are normally not used at all.

        Why 64 bit?

        • Posted January 9, 2017 at 19:57 | Permalink

          Every block currently has 32 bits of data and each bit carries information like: rotation, if it floats or sinks in water, if it is a light source or not (1 or 0), if it can be painted, if it can be edited etc. and four bits designates colour, that gives 16 colours (2^4). Kaalus used a lot of bits on the block ID’s so that we can have a lot of furniture (1024=10 bits). Remember that the 10 bits are only ID’s for furniture, the other ID’s still have to be added. Slowly but surely all the bits are taken up. Maybe there are one or two bits left. If There are bits left, which I doubt, Kaalus could add more colours, but this could jeopardise future options. One extra bit would double the amount of colours to 32.

          The next step up would be 64 bit, because you usually double with binary. You can use 24 bit as well, but usually you would double, because programming as well as performance makes better sense as registers these days are either 32 or 64 bit (of course the older ones are 8 and 16 bit).

          OK, my assembly language is very rusted and extremely outdated. I still come from an 8 bit era. But I do think the basics stayed the same. Others can help out if I’m wrong. I used to program Z80, that is ancient. I even created the code by hand, since at that stage I did not have an assembler. I hope this sort of makes sense.

          For now, try the texture pack for orange and brown.

    -The texture on furniture is upside down compared to the normal blocks. Please fix this asap.
    -And I agree there should be a light source without the particles. Unless the piece is made in full resolution, the effect can cloud the details in the piece.
    -I would like to see a pushbutton option that has two states. The ‘active’ state would be temporary and simply for realism.
    -Another idea would have connected furniture that is activated by electricity NOT respond to touch, like the iron door does. This is especially helpful for adventure maps. I’d like to make furniture hidden doors that ONLY reveal themselves by electricity.

      Hi there. The current colours use 4 bits. As I understand there are no extra bits available for more colours, but maybe Kaalus could spare one, then we could have 32 colour in stead of 16. No chance thou for a colour wheel. That alone would use up all 32 bits of block data. This has been mentioned quite a few time, but I suppose you missed it.

        The standard RGB spectrum is 24 bits. A pretty comprehensive spectrum is obtainable with 12 bits (4096 colours).

        • Posted January 10, 2017 at 18:10 | Permalink

          One day we’ll hopefully have 24 bits, but 5 or 6 bits would be better than nothing. With 6 bits you can do 64 colours, which is not bad at all. I remember the first computers, when 128 colours was considered to be wonderful and 256 colours was so “realistic.” The first general implementation of gifs were 256 colours. Those were the days.

          Today’s graphics is generally 32 bits, that is 4 294 967 296 colours.

    Well since Kaalus asked about furniture, this list will only be about furniture, So stop spamming animals, colors, or ANY other ideas that ARE NOT furniture related.

    Furniture chests (Very handy)
    Furniture furnaces (Handy)
    Furniture crafting table (Why?)
    Furniture Pressure Plates (ok but you want people walking on your furniture?)
    Increase the polygon limit if possible (Useful)
    Furniture “weapons” (AWESOME, but hard to put in the game)
    Non-smoking furniture (I don’t care but children play this game)

    BIG Tip: Don’t destroy the blocks I use to build the furniture in ANY mode…
    That would allow me to actually make furniture without draining dozens of blocks from an area.
    Also would allow me to make some more/better multi state furniture so I could alter the HUGE design a little instead of rebuilding the whole thing all over again!
    That and maybe allow us to make furniture out of a stack of 40 wood (since is burns anyway) that way we can more freely use designs we got from other worlds…

          You can go back. You use a strict piston as they use in elevators.

          You can actually use two sets of pistons to travel 128 blocks (-2). Look at my video. I’ve posted it at post 27 on this page. But trains wood be a great idea as I’ve said in post 43.

          But i do not like with pistons i would like the mod of minecraft : traincraft what is very real

  43. Posted January 10, 2017 at 11:51 | Permalink | Reply

    Kaalus, Since people are asking about trains:

    I know you can make a sort of a train with pistons, but it is a lot of work and you can travel a total of 128 blocks (actually less) in total and then you have to transfer to a new set. The speed is slower than walking speed and it is jerky.

    We also do not want a copy of miner carts from MC. I suggest that at some stage in the future, we should have maglev type rails, in other words induction. This unit could be used for much more than just trains, lifts as well. There should be two parts, one on the ground (or against a wall), which is the main magnet than only needs to cover the width of the “track” and needs to be repeated every 16 or 32 blocks. If the train reaches the end of this distance, the magnet’s influence must stop and train must loose speed and stop.

    The other block should be like a slab, there should be a hovering distance and this block must have the control. We’ll also need a new three (or five for other directions) state switch (-1 0 +1). This switch must determine the direction, forward or backwards (maybe even left or right). This switch must connect with this block. But I suggest that any block touching this block, must receive the same instruction. This block can be edit on how many blocks above it, must move with it, as well as the top speed, which should go up exponentially (settings thus: 1, 2 4 8 16 32 – wish we could have this for pistons). This block must also be able to receive external data, so that if it connects with another switch, it must reset the previous switch. So if you switched to go forward and you arrive at a “station,” the station switch, which should be off (0) will then stop the vehicle, which should decelerate and stop within a few blocks.

    With this induction system, you could have a long train, or even a ship or car. Yes this design does not make it possible to change direction, but with pistons you could accomplish this. I also would like this not to be so expensive like pistons, which makes it a viable option for survival. It will probably need iron and I really hope iron will become more abundant. It is a real bummer to find iron.

    We also could have a specific vehicle, the size of the boat, that can travel on these “tracks.” Also, this unit should be able to uphill, but for that you’ll need a magnet for every step up or something like that.

    Well here is small presentation of what I mean:

    Just a random thought for the future, but multiplayer should take precedent over it though. This idea might be crazy, but it might be the springboard for other ideas.

        Hi there. I always like things that are realistic. I hate fantasy and fairies. So yes, if it makes it more realistic, I’ll like it. It would be a bit hard to implement, sincerain stops abrupt when go into a desert area. Maybe it would be better if the rainbow will be there, not too brightly and then slowly dissipate when the rain stops.

          I only play SC. Time is a luxury, so no I do not pay those games. And when game takes to much time, I remove it. It backends to SC as well. If it interferes with my life, it has to go. Life is more than games.

          I used to play Age of Empires 2 a lot, but I had to delete it. The same happened with C&C Generals and a few others. And yes, these are all fairly realistic games.

          Although these things are realistic, usually in games like these, they occur way too frequent. How often does a tornado hit a certain place, or volcano or earthquake or even lightning strikes. Look at games like SIM city, the disasters become very unrealistic. So, I am not too enthusiastic about these additions. To add them will also be quite a bit of work, especially earthquakes. Meteor strikes are also a very rare occurrence.

        • Posted January 12, 2017 at 11:34 | Permalink

          There are quite a few knowledgable people around here, for sure. The problem with elephants is that to render the trunks, is quite difficult. The other animals have only legs and heads to move around, but an elephant’s trunk will be made up of several segments for it to be able to bend and move. An elephant also uses the trunk to eat. How is he going to implement all this? It will also be big. How many blocks in size must he make it? This is all possible, but will take quite a bit of programming. But our Kaalus is not a new kid on the block.

          For now I’ll hope MP will come soon. I can see that he first need to satisfy the survivalists among us.

    Hello Kaalus,

    I think that paintable iron is needed. In the 1.29 update you made stairs, slabs, gates, and iron fences paintable. If iron fences are paintable, then I don’t see why iron isn’t. I know that this will further use up the block IDs limit but it is necessary for a lot of things, unlike painted fences, which already are in the game. If you are being very conservative about block IDs then you could maybe remove the painted iron fences and fence gates in favour of painted iron (maybe copper?) blocks. Sorry for using the word “paintable” too often and sounding angry – I’m not. Thank you in advance.

      I did know that. Check the wiki for which blocks can be moved and which will pop. Also, the memory bank and truth table will not only pop off, they WILL BE ERASED !!! Also, signs will move with the piston but they too will be erased when they do. I found we can use the memory bank as keys in adventure maps. I wanted to place them on pistons, using the fact that they will pop off. If it’s the wrong key, it gets rejected and pops back at you. (Since I don’t give the player an axe to remove it.) But instead of just rejecting it, it ERASES it. So sad.

    Kaalus, after making several furniture packs, I’m having serious issues not with furniture itself, but with managing them in the packs. It can be extremely confusing with large packs.
    —-
    When a piece is added to a pack, it seems there’s no sense in where it’s added. It’s not at the end of the list, not at the beginning and not clearly alphabetical. Could we have a way to organize the items in the pack, ourselves? I have several packs with variations on the items within them. I would like to group the variations together but it’s impossible, now.

    Why can we not have the same item in more than one pack? I’ve made quite a few pieces that I wish to include in different packs. Now, the piece has to be created separately for each pack it belongs in.

    When a piece is moved from the hotbar to a pack, the piece is NOT moved into that pack. Instead it disappears altogether!

    Could we rename the packs IN game content? Now the pack has to be deleted from content. I have to enter a world that still has that pack, rename it and THEN reload it into content. This is very cumbersome and a source of great peril (if the pack no longer exists in a world). MANAGE CONTENT would be the most logical place for this.

    When a multistate piece is placed, tapped and then removed, the game treats it as if it were an entirely new piece and even changes its name. This was a cause of GREAT confusion before I realized what was going on. The state which the piece is currently in should not matter – it’s still the same piece.
    —-
    – Include my idea of ‘no-tap’ furniture (like the iron door) here. It’s important for adventure maps…
    – As it is, the hammer will not recognize blocks that do not share a face. Is it possible to let it include blocks that touch only at edges or corners, as well? I see no (player-related) down side to this…

    One very helpful suggestion for electric builders: could we possibly have the switch blocks activated by ‘connectedness’? I.e., furniture switch is activated when another, connected piece is activated. This can tie connected to electric circuits. We can already go from electric to connected. Going the other way, we can do so much more!

    Another furniture request:
    Another block to use in furniture with a finer, random texture. Clay is good for pure color. The other blocks all have bigger texture patterns that may not look so good in smaller pieces. Granite is better but if we could use colored sand, that would give us a nice tighter texture in furniture.

Sometimes you have to start seeing the good things in life.

          So posts do die out … Interesting. My comments are not negative, they are about as crazy and annoy as the other people’s comments are. As for mental illness, “Stanimus is a professional psychologist” I’ll believe it when I see his diploma. I’m a realist, and I play on cruel mode for fun.
