Islands

To better support multiple players, there’s new terrain generation mode: Island.

Have a look at some islands it makes:

You can tweak island size, all the way from very tiny to super huge.

    That’s a good news for hardcore challenging/cruel players!

      Yes and no, means fewer places to be able to run to, and fewer places to hide. True it gives newbs less places to hide/run too. Also less places to grow food, and have sustainable food sources.
      This is bad news for other kinds of players because you have limited space, resources, etc. Island maps will be drained of germanium well before everyone gets a piston.

        Just dig down and away, the germanium spawns under the ocean too.

        As ike231 said, you can still go mine under the ocean. There are also still islands out in the ocean (watch the video closely to see trees in the distance on one of the islands).

    Is there any chance we could get a usable clone of the sail ship that abandons us in the beginning of the game? Maybe even two players could use it?

      The islands really inspired me to make a Pirate Cove, and it would be absolutely fantastic to have a pirate ship to go with it. Maybe even in two player mode we could have two ships battling it out for King of the island.

    Kaalus as you might know, I’ve been following SC for a few years. If this is the only way MP will ever be implemented, you have lost me. If this is an interim measure for split screen mode, then I’ll accept it. This is however troublesome, since other options were given.

    Please let us know if this is your final try for multiplayer. If so, I need to stop invest my energy in a game that has no future. I know I might be sounding very negative, maybe that is because I actually am. So sorry about that. I know you trying your utmost with your game and getting negative feedback does not help. You say in the video to huge. I did not see a huge island though. So many guys have pre-prepared worlds for mp, which will now not happen.

    I asked my kids what they thought, without revealing my own sentiment. They’re reaction was: “Ag nee, dis nie lekker nie.” That means: “Oh no, that is not nice.”

    Sorry for this…

    Maybe in a year or two’s time this will change, but I can see that true multiplayer will not come to SC in the near future.

      I’m sure kaalus knows you’ve been following this game for years, he doesn’t care.

      Final try for mulitplayer? He’s tried before? So much for wasting years following this game.

      Alright good to know your young children play this game.

      Sorry for what? Are you going to demand your money back? too late kaalus has already spent your money.

      We don’t have any multiplayer! You want “true multiplayer” go outside and talk to people face to face.

        Hi there Jadyn. In this blog, we are allowed to express our joys as well as our disappointments. I am disappointed about this. A first try can also be your last try, not so? That was my point, sorry for not making it clear. Why is this a disappointment to me? Even if Kaalus will be implementing full LAN, it will not happen this year and maybe not even early next year. It is a bigger hurdle than any of us anticipated. This is sad to me.

        Am I angry at Kaalus? No, just disappointed about the situation. If you find playing mp on a tiny island enjoyable, then I will not criticise you. My boys and I like to explore and this rules out exploring. Justin like a killing game and that is his choice. For a killing game, this will be OK. Maybe I’ll even try the island thing myself, but for that I need to spend more money than this game cost.

        I really despise Minecraft, yet it is the only viable option for multiplayer. Many think mp is not necessary, well many like playing just by themselves and alone. I like playing with my boys. Blame me for that if you want to. I still think SC is a masterpiece, just without mp. By the time mp comes out, my kids might be out of my house.

        I just expressed my disappointment. Beat me up about it if you want. At least I’ve not gone around like Justin or laughed at anybody’s comments.

        • Posted March 4, 2017 at 23:55 | Permalink

          Killing game? I don’t enjoy killing games, but I know there will be battles and I’m just getting as ready as possible.

        • Posted March 8, 2017 at 14:19 | Permalink

          Ouch! I stand corrected! Sorry, l just get tired of all the folks saying this is the end, while it is not Internet multiplayer, it is another step closer.
          In a previous post, Kaalus said he would add the easy things first. when he does add it I assume he won’t have to rewrite the entire game to
          Make it work for two or more players, so there is still hope that multiplayer is in the near future! (Correct me if you wish, I really don’t know what I’m
          Talking about)

      Dude, this is obviously just the beginning of multiplayer. This means LAN and online multiplayer will be mostly finished, he’ll just have to script client/server stuff and some multiplayer syncing system (or use one that’s already made, like RakNet).

      • Posted March 4, 2017 at 21:12 | Permalink | Reply

        I hear you, but it is not so obvious. Kaalus is seriously struggling with the gaming engine. This is not something to fix in a week. I really hope you are right, but how long? We know not! When we don’t know, it is not obvious.

        Don’t get me wrong, this is still the best sandbox game, just without mp!

        • Posted March 5, 2017 at 16:30 | Permalink

          I don’t recall him saying he has struggling for the past week… The hardest part of what he is doing is getting the time to do it. Kaalus is ONE person. He’s not “struggling with the game engine”. In fact, he made the game’s engine himself from the ground up. Adding multiplayer (whether it’s split screen, LAN, or online) isn’t something you can expect to be done in just a few weeks.

        • Posted July 5, 2017 at 08:54 | Permalink

          You have to remember Johan that Kaalus is but a one man army working on Survivalcraft all by himself.

        • Posted July 5, 2017 at 09:09 | Permalink

          Yes you are right. I just got a bit frustrated. It looks like I was overreacting a bit. The game has improved a lot now. Still waiting for true multiplayer though.

      • Posted March 5, 2017 at 16:32 | Permalink | Reply

        No. This isn’t the beginning of LAN. This is not necessary for LAN. This is Kaalus not wanting to make a real multiplayer mode. This split screen nonsense is just a waste of time. The game us getting older, and we still dont have mod support. We still dont have multiplayer. We still dont have animal breeding.

        But I guess useless split screen multiplayer is fine.

        • Posted March 5, 2017 at 21:32 | Permalink

          You’re just some ungrateful child that doesn’t understand Kaalus’s position. This IS necessary in Kaalus’s perspective, mine as well. He doesn’t have the time it takes to script a fully operational LAN/online multiplayer, especially solo. He’s scripting split screen multiplayer first because it won’t take nearly as much time. He can work out all of the kinks of multiplayer with split screen. After all the kinks are worked out LAN/online multiplayer will just take a syncing multiplayer engine (again, like RakNet) and be able to finished in the normal time it takes an update to be finished.

          And how is mod support related at all? We don’t need mod support for multiplayer. I’m not against mod support, in fact one of the latest threads on the forum is the one I posted suggesting a mod API. But it’s still completely irrelative.

          Whatever dude, I have valid concerns, too bad if it means I’m an “ungrateful child”

          This is the beginning of LAN. Kaalus said that the main part of changing the engine was allowing it to support multiple players.

      not trying to be rude to this comment, but I think these bad johan not think kaalus not want to get MULTIPLAYER to play, perhaps, does not want to get him now, if you stand to see the game from another perspective, even if many things , It still lacks a lot to be a complete (“Survival”), the game is not expensive, even, is incredibly cheap, “the game is getting old” is a joke? the game just is coming to light, people that know more, communities with different languages ​​(like me), the features that are getting are really amazing, and the game is flourishing more and more; Kaalus said that when he saw that the game was really well completed, he would play multiplayer, he is the only one who will decide when the game will be well completed, and anyway, TA-DA !! Has given us this, may not be the best way to play multiplayer, but it is better than nothing (for now) this is a breakthrough for the LAN MULTIPLAYER NET and I hope your support is not for wanting to play with your cute Multiplayer children, but also that is why you like the game; This post of kaalus has been simply to show the solution that kaalus has chosen on the problem that had, although he would have chosen another, just as it would be the same as an island, because it would have a barrier, I do not try to be rude with this comment, I just try to give my opinion about your comment (you are doing the same as me, but erroneously) thanks for reading

        You say your opinion is right and mine is wrong. My and your opinion is just that, opinions. We can our opinions. Why bash mine? You’ll see that I did not write off Kaalus. I clearly showed that I appreciate his work. You might even notice that I dislike minecraft very much.

        Kaalus has begun multiplayer, why? The biggest reason is because people have asked multiple times for it. This these wrong opinions for results. I am not the only one that wants proper mp, so why is my opinion wrong? SC is now very mature, more than MC. Please also read all I have posted.

        Also, even though I dislike MC, it has millions of downloads. Multiplayer is one of the reasons. If you think I imagine this, wait until SC gets mp…

          su “opinión” no es una opinión, es una critica irrelevante. No creo que tenga los argumentos necesarios para decir (“If so, I need to stop invest my energy in a game that has no future.”) que no te guste algo del juego no quiere decir que este mal; si, se que estas aquí desde hace mucho tiempo, pero eso no quiere decir que tengas mas derechos de reclamar, tenemos derecho e reclamar cuando estemos pagando y no nos estén dando lo que esten ofreciendo, pero hasta el momento kaalus ha sido completamente honesto. por eso su “opinión” esta mal. ni tu, ni yo, ni nadie tiene derecho a decir: (“If this is an interim measure for split screen mode, then I’ll accept it.”) (” then i’ll accept it”) ¿perdon? pero quien eres tu para decir que es lo que se acepto, y que es o que no se acepta, si no te gusta como kaalus maneja su juego, pues desde un comienzo no lo hubieras comprado.

        • Posted April 12, 2017 at 10:37 | Permalink

          I have communicated with Kaalus about this quite a while ago. I gave him advice to make a version 2 to bring back enthusiasm for himself and to make multiplayer possible. Now I am not saying that he did it because of my advice, but it could sure be. I did this with personal emails. I think he will not mind me mentioning it though.

          Bringing out version 2 did bring with it certain expectations, especially in the light of this. So expecting multiplayer is not unreasonable, since it has been requested more that anything else. I do not claim any rights. Nobody actually has any rights, only privileges. This human rights stuff is rubbish, we only have privileges. With this game, it is not as much righs, but expectations.

          I am with this game about three years which is not that long, but in this time multiplayer was at the top of the list. Even guns, pistons and furniture could have waited. So maybe you can understand why people get a little impatient.

          Yes, I was a bit hard on Kaalus, but if you look through the comments you’ll see that I have said sorry to Him about it. I have also emailed him about it. So just relax a bit. I’m not Kaalus” enemy, also not yours.

          For those who don’t want to take the time, this is the Google translate edition.

          your “opinion” is not an opinion, it is a criticism irrelevant. Do not think it has arguments necessary to say (“If so, I need to stop invest my energy in a game that has no future.”) you not like something of the game doesn’t mean that bad; Yes, are these here since long time ago, but that does not mean you have more rights of claim, we have right and claim when we are paying and not we are giving what they are offering, but so far kaalus has been completely honest. that is why his “opinion” is wrong. Neither you, nor I, nor anyone has the right to say: (“If this is an interim measure for split screen mode, then I’ll accept it.”) (“then i’ll accept it”) would pardon? but who are you to say that it is what they will accept, and what or that not accepted, if you do not like kaalus handles your game, because from the outset not had bought it.

      I can put my weeks of surviving on an island to a better test in multiplayer, but not really “satisfied”, because island survival is much tougher, no casswary birds for endless food. Also as I mentioned less places to hide.run from others, but they also have less places to hide/run from me.

        Most likely he will have animals spawn on these islands.

        Its just like raising the sea level, as long as you move west animals will spawn, its once you go into the ocean to the east that this stops.

        How are cassowary birds endless? Giving lots of meat per kill or some strategy? Care to share? 😬

        • Posted March 6, 2017 at 00:10 | Permalink

          Cassowarys and ostriches give eggs, you can cook a single egg and get more “nutrition” then a piece of cooked bacon. The birds will keep laying these eggs, and you can keep hatching them for more birds and get more eggs… Thus a nearly limitless food source as long as you have these birds safe in a cage/fence/where ever you can keep them. These birds also eat pumpkins another limitless food source. Cows generate milk once a day but limitless as long as they live. Wheat is also limitless BUT it produces so little bread it’s virtually useless.

          Now I need to get back to my endless fuel generators~

        • Posted March 6, 2017 at 05:44 | Permalink

          Nice, thanks Justin! Will bug you about the fuel generators later :)

        • Posted March 6, 2017 at 06:11 | Permalink

          Cacti is very good fuel source and replenishes fairly quickly. Nothing to brag about though. Trees are not difficult to grow either and their leaves works well as a fuel source as well. Personally I mostly turn wood into sticks, which is the most economical fuel source. Only two sticks are generally needed to cook or melt things. I do use cacti as well, but it can be a bit of shlep to carves them, but I do use them.

          Sticks have another advantage, you only need to carry a few pieces of wood, which you then can turn into a lot of sticks. So portability is best. With cacti you still need a lot.

          Coal is too “expensive” to burn,but I mostly use it when I’m melting a lot of ore or glass. The other sources burn out too quickly.

        • Posted March 6, 2017 at 10:03 | Permalink

          Put in a solid coal block if your lucky enough to find one. They burn infinite in a furnace.

        • Posted March 6, 2017 at 12:49 | Permalink

          AphX you are wrong, they do not burn endless, they burn a long time but you will get more mileage out of 40 coal chunks then a single coal block. Coal blocks do burn forever when placed and lit with a match or lava (endless fire starter) but burning coal blocks just produce heat they don’t keep animals away, but work longer then a campfire. Campfire is better if you are only passing threw a cold area, but a lava fire place is better if you plan on living there.

          Aesop: I’m guessing you are preparing for multiplayer. Based upon you not knowing how to secure a stable food source/fuel source I’m guessing you’ve played a lot in creative or just started the game. Hope you know how to feed and cloth your character by now, as for building advanced structures… you are not ready.

    Hey buddy.

    Keep up the awesome work. I love seeing the stuff you’re doing. I had what I think is a small request. At least I hope it’s easy to do. Would it be possible to have a setting for the length of day? Like could we have a setting like long medium short. One of the things I found in survival and other modes is that I still want the day to cycle but it’s always too fast. It might be more enjoyable with a longer day. Just a thought. I hope your doing well over there.

      Yea great idea. Even in creative I’m constantly changing it back to noon so I can see what I’m building and yes yes I know I can change it to permanently be noon but I like to be able to change to night now an then to test lighting etc without having to exit the world. Longer days would make it feel much more realistic, like having enough time in the day to actually find food and make a decent shelter ;)

      You haven’t tried the super cold island survival challenge have you?

      For me, I can survive indefinitely on whale hunting, and some farming.

      And in the cold its mostly just getting fur and killing birds. Islands can sustain you if you know how to conserve and replenish resources, as well as gain more from your surroundings.

        Wow no I have not even considered whale hunting seriously. Is this really possible? I shall have to try it, thanks! I agree cold iced over ocean hunting grounds are the best. you can expand these building simple long dirt roads through cold ocean.

          Whales drop like, 7-12 fish per kill last I checked.

          Problem is that they will one shot you or sink your boat, so you have to keep them away from you or get right above them. They also have loads of health, but its the only way to survive on the dead islands to the east.

        I dropped bird hunting when sneak mode stopped working with them from all angles. I mostly hunt elk and moose on icel glows now.

        • Posted March 5, 2017 at 19:28 | Permalink

          Try to get a bow if you aren’t doing the cold survival, you can hit birds easily from long distances, but that isn’t necessary because they will let you get within 20 blocks easy.

          On a cold world survival, you will need to use a spear. Wooden spears will kill a bird in one shot, so you will be able to kill them on the first day.

          My main food source is bird, since they are so easy to hunt with no risk.

          Bird is always the first food I go for! No looking for the Great Pumpkin. I immediately craft an axe and a spear, kill some birds, then find gravel and ivy. Stone arrows are great for birding and cheap.

      Australia is a big place, my world is currently 11.4mb compressed and its about the size of an average city in scale to real life. In game can take 20 minutes flying to go one side to the other, let’s just say it’s not a small place. A map the size of Australia is pretty much exactly what your playing with now, infinite. You would never realistically reach the other side due to the immense distance. Maybe a large island could be like Briton :)

        I do think Kaalus was mentioning Australia in a hyperbole example. He exaggerated.

        4000 blocks measures to 4000 metres, that is 4km. I am quite sure Australia is wider than 4km.

        If we can reach his 16 000 blocks, it calculates to 16km, which is still not big, although it might be workable.

      Like Tom said, who gave MC the some right to this? Multiplayer has been around for decades and various forms came out. If you think that a limited world should be the only option because Minecraft has unlimited, it just does not make sense.

    I’m not entirely sure what we’re getting here. This “new terrain generation mode”, does this mean we have the ability to switch between infinite and island modes, or are we switching to ” island mode” ?
    Johan, you make it sound like we’re gonna be stuck on island mode forever, ranting about how disappointed you are that we’re not getting LAN MP. Split screen is something we didn’t have before, you can happily play the game without using it. Problem solved. Plus, I doubt Kaalus would rework the entire generation to island mode and not give us the option of standard infinite. That’ll be a bit extreme. Anyhow, these islands seems challenging, can’t wait to test it.

      I expressed my disappointment, without being nasty to anyone. How is that wrong? Yes maybe Kaalus will work around this limited world setup and I am up for hoping for it, but he did say:

      To better support multiple players

      There are other sandbox games in which the only mp player mode is a limited world. Why do you think my fears that we might be stuck with this are unfounded? You can also recollect that I asked Kaalus a question if this is so. Asking does imply that there might still be hope…

        I do think there may be a little misunderstanding here, this is an island mode for the terrain generator, not simply a singleisland. this means that the generator creates a series of islands, not just simply a single island.(if you look closely at the video, you can see some trees at the edge of the camera render distance, and as far as I am aware, SC trees do not grow on water.) this means the world is still infinite, but the generated terrain will force players to stay closer together. this generation type is an on the fly fix for the engines’ inability to handle seperate players at very great distances. (although the engines’ limit can be pushed to about 40k blocks i do beleive, so that is heckuva lotta space anyways). i think this terrain generarion mode was inspired by an early multiplayer post where he forced the generation of a desert island to play a challenge with his kids. but the full feature DOES NOT limit world size or amount of terrain, just breaks up the terrain with ocean.

        • Posted March 6, 2017 at 05:59 | Permalink

          You actually might be right. The video was a bit misleading in that the islands were all very small. Maybe there will still be a limiting mechanism as we discussed.

        Just off of the top of my head, kaalus has made passive animals able to kill you, he made certain mobs that didn’t drop stuff start to drop stuff, took away the ability yo live off of killing sharks, made cold places spawn more, and removed the weaponized coal bug.

        Tbh, the term established is not applicable though, the game is constantly changing.

      • Posted March 5, 2017 at 19:20 | Permalink | Reply

        In the previous version (SC1) we had iron appearing at fairly shallow depths in a mine (sometimes alongside coal), and copper quite a bit deeper. These two were reversed not long ago forcing players to craft and use copper tools before using iron tools (let alone diamond tools / weapons).
        Around the same time, tall spruces were added (which was awesome) but since logs now self-spawn there are about 1/3 as many pumpkins. On the plus side, you now have animals attacking animals which, if you are quick, will be a source of meat… so, trading pumpkins for steaks.
        Also, around the time of Tall Spruces added, we got better caverns & interconnected tunnels, sometimes all the way down to bedrock. Unfortunately, that change really screwed up any saved games that you had with man-made underground passages. Lava existed before but not as giant pits (as much) and waterfalls of lava.
        Graves that originally were a great source of diamonds or better tools now about 90% empty. Kind of a waste of time digging them up now.
        Lightning now strikes trees a lot more and cause forrest fires / shelter destruction anywhere that it rains a fair amount.

        • Posted March 6, 2017 at 20:02 | Permalink

          Yes, the game has changed before, but this is clearly just a new mode. Kaalus is not about to sacrifice the beautiful terrain generation algorithm he has spent so long creating.

      I cannot disagree more. This might be good for PvP MP but NOT good for MP builds. I would much rather have Diablo style separation handling than isolated islands. Kaalus said he could stretch the max distance to 16,000 blocks and that would more than sufficient for most players. These islands can’t be anywhere near that size so we would be effectivly giving up a large city space for this. So, although this is an OK solution to the problem of separation, I truly hope it won’t be the ONLY way to play MP!
      (Then again, I will probably never play split-screen, anyway.)

      • Posted March 7, 2017 at 14:51 | Permalink | Reply

        Hmm.. You’re partly right. If the max distance up to 16,000 blocks then really need a very huge islands. Then will be more space to build something and we will be isolated.

    Islands are just one more mode, not the only mode. Sheesh.

    1 flat
    2 normal
    3 island

    And there’s never been switching modes of an existing world (sans hacking the world file).

    Also Big K has not ruled out true MP. This is just his first go at it, this approach is low hanging fruit and gets a good bit of the MP mechanics started.

          Maybe add an option to set how far apart the islands should spawn in the new mode. Give us some control over the difficulty and risk of exploring. It would be great if island types was a multi-select so you could have more than one island type at a time.

    There was a time when I would engage with people about their disrespectful way that they communicate with other people. People here gives their opinions, which is good, but then some just cannot contain themselves to belittle these people, without any respect. This is making this blog extremely unpleasant. If Kaalus keeps on aankarring this, many will just stop commenting or even leave.

    I am not going to fall for this seeking for attention. It looks like some of these immature kids don’t get enough attention at home. They themselves being bullies at school, think they can come and built people four times their age. They think people actually care what they say.

    If people cannot be allowed to even give their opinion here, this blog has become a wasteland. I’ve even seen one guy on Youtube (SC) belittle a thirteen year old boy for no reason . Why? I always thought that SC followers were more mature that MC followers. It seems I were wrong.

SurvivalCraft still a good game without mp or splitscreen.(Actually it is better). For those who wants LAN multiplayer, be patient. It is not easy to make that. And for the island terrain, it will be good in cruel or challenging mode. For those who dont like it, just switch to other mode. Easy right??? In the older post, Kaalus said that it will be a problem if each player far from each other. So maybe he made this island mode to limit our exploration alone when play splitscreen mode. And for Justin. It seems like you have played SurvivalCraft for years. Its good but dont be ego to othersss. Dont be like you are the developer for this game.

      SC2 the islands typically have some caves / caverns. Some have trees. I have had some luck digging down on islands prospecting for iron, copper, diamonds. If you bring some supplies you can live at least a few days on the island before returning – esp. If you are farming on the mainland. I would take a compass for navigation in rain / after dark. If you can see other islands along the coast, you could dig down and across to them or create a small stone / dirt path to them, but watch out for sand filling from above.

    Many of you are deeming split screen multiplayer as unnecessary and an end to the ever-suggested LAN/online multiplayer. This IS necessary in Kaalus’s perspective and mine.

    He doesn’t have the time it takes to script a fully operational LAN/online multiplayer, especially solo. He’s scripting split screen multiplayer first because it won’t take nearly as much time. He can work out all of the kinks of multiplayer with split screen. After all the kinks are worked out LAN/online multiplayer will just need a syncing multiplayer engine (like RakNet). It’ll be able to finished in the normal time it takes an update to be finished then.

    Stop being ungrateful and complaining. Go ahead and threaten to leave the game! Why would we or Kaalus really care if you left? No matter how long you’ve been here you’re just like anyone of us, if you leave it’s your loss.

    hey kaalus….. your ideas that you r adding in the game r awesome…. but I just want to add another suggestion.
    I think 2.1 update would become better if you could make the multiplayer game like this — the players would connect their phones or the device that they are using through LAN (wifi and hotspot ) and then they will enter the same world where they can play and build and create together in the same world at the same time. This would also solve the problem of having two or more controllers for playing in multiplayer as most people don’t have them. the two controllers would be the individual buttons that would appear on the screens of the two players as it happens in single player mode. I am sure that if you would add this feature it would be liked by all the players for sure. I think it would be easy to add this feature as the feature is already there in many other games. apart from this, the game is yours and you have to decide whether this feature could be added or if this feature is useful(I am sure it is useful and perfect). ‘mini militia’ by Appsomniacs have LAN feature and it works perfectly and is liked by all the players. hope you would think about this suggestion
    deeply. Cheers to 2.1 !!!

    I think the time has come for more randomly generated structures. Like villages and their prospective villagers. You spoke of low hanging fruit before multiplayer.. Where’s our villages… Infinite islands are pretty much contents, these contenants should have random towns/outposts and such. Low hanging fruit Kaalus… Easy $*&*

      An economic system between the player and NPCs would make for a decent challenge. I was hoping more for Seasons and having to prepare for winter, but any extra challenge is welcomed.

    Whew, haven’t posted in awhile. Anyway, just wanted to say that I really like this forum cuz it really gets the wheels turnin for Kaalus and other SC lovers. Now for my ideas. I would really like to see some dolphins and could we please have ropes for the horsies? And saddles that come off? As you can see from my profile photo, I love horses and would like to see some things added to them. Thanks!

      Go back to not posting, we’re getting islands … these aren’t as impressive as having horse ropes and dolphins, but it’s what we’re getting.

        This is just a suggestion. Kaalus, obviously, wouldn’t be able to add that in this so soon. Its just and idea he has not a demand. So STFU a bit and don’t be cruel to someone with a suggestion.

    you know what I’m surprised kaalus hasn’t added in seasons yet and natural disasters into the game. I really hope that will come very soon. Atleast the seasons part of it.

      Well kaalus did mention something about cruel mode getting something… My guess he is since half the people that play this game are only in creative mode, it wasn’t worth the effort.

      I for one, am totally against major natural disasters. As it is now, every tree in every forest will eventually be burned down from lightning if you stay in the same area long enough. That’s enough ‘natural’ destruction for me. I’ve played Block Story with its earthquakes and thought it was a pointless idea (to put it nicely).

      I report content in the game all the time and it doesn’t seem to do anything, so a report button here would likely be as useless.

    I was thinking. Survivalcraft is about being marooned on an island in the first place. So villages and villagers have been requested. But how about not just normal villages and villagers. How about adding “tribes” instead? Like some friendly tribes and hostile ones.

    Look Kaalus you already have a code for randomly generated graves and their respective empty/item laden spaces.. You can reuse that code for small tribes/villages. It’s not hard and won’t take too long. At least try.. A small village or hidden building in the jungle every once in awhile would be nice. And again.. You can reuse the random generator code for graves. Just modify it build a small building and add it to the code instead of a grave. Done. Low hanging fruit bro… People on both sides (creative/survivalists) would be appreciative I’m sure… Heck maybe even throw in an item or something in the house as a prize or reward.. Maybe make em a lot harder to find than graves.. Who knows.

    Kaalus, I don’t like to post ‘wants’ here but I don’t know where else you look these days.

    Would it be difficult to add a world switch to disable automatic pickup of dropped items? Instead, we would have to tap the floating item/block with an empty hand. This would open the game to making mini-games and other possibilities. Especially games using balls (or discs…). Certain adventure mode scenarios would be easier or possible to implement. It could add another level of difficulty to cruel mode as well.

    • Posted March 18, 2017 at 18:44 | Permalink | Reply

      How would messing with stuff that I can or can’t pick up increase the challenge? It would make the game more annoying having to tap an object to pick up up, switching back and forth between pickaxe and free hand would just make things tough for those that like to mine.

    I think we should keep posting. Kaalus is doing his job, and his job doesn’t include updating his progresss every hour. We just need to be patient and keep making suggestions. But not huge ones because that will just make him even more stressed. Just small ones, like ropes for horses, saddles that come off, the tapping to pick up items thing. Dolphins might be a little too big, but I certainly thought it was a good suggestion.

      with every platform ios/windows/andriod..
      its like having a salt(java,etc.) for your soup(android), and a sugar(c#, etc.) for your coffee(windows)..
      even if it’s all to make your food or drinks taste better, will you use salt for your coffee..
      there’s a lot more things to consider, devices requirements, compatibilities, etc..
      it like adding a character to an already written story which has a role from start to end of its tale.

    I have an idea for the game.

    It’s a new button in creative mode.
    It’s called a “Switch-A-Roo!” Button.
    And when you activate it, every block that you tap
    is replaced by the block type that you have in your hand.

    This would make building things like roads much easier and less time consuming.

    Well I do have “glitch” to report, certain “conditions” are not survivable. If the humidity is -10 or less there are no trees, no trees, no wood, so no crafting anything complex.

I’m just letting you know this so you can try fix it. Maybe go for a run? Or get a haircut / use some product? Heck, shooting yourself will also fix the issues but that’s up to you.

          I prefer to think of you all as kids whose brains are not yet fully formed so, while you are conscious of what you do you are not yet fully rational beings. That’s okay…growing up is really hard. However, if you are adults then shame on all of you. Either way, please tone down incendiary rhetoric. Stop poisoning what we have.

        Now that’s over the top. I really don’t understand why people attack other people just because of their looks. Now how they act, however, is a different story, most of the time. Unless they have some mental problem, they can change. Don’t go over the top, of course, in fact, keep it very low…and for good reason! Just my moral view.

        Bucket of water, and an axe to cut anything wooden, that’s your fire extinguisher.

        It would be nice if we had a bigger health bar and something to heal our characters back to full health.
        Until then just go to sleep, you don’t get more hungry(1 tick on the food bar), time passage isn’t recorded, and as long as you’re safe/don’t wake up early you’re health is restored.

          Buckets of water arnt intended to put out fires in trees or building tops, nothing worse than a fire and a flood! Plus the water does even not added ground damage. As for life, your better off just getting one. =P

        Fire extinguishers would be very useful. My house in a surbobal world recently caught on fire, and so I used water to put it out (my house is by the ocean) and I ended up flooding what was left of my house. It took me about a half hour to clean up all the water, and since the water did not put out a lot of the fire, I spent hours rebuilding my house. I just decided since the house was already mostly burnt down, I would rebuild it out of bricks instead of wood.

          I was thinking about… Water Bottles… Of course you can drink them, but you can also use them for extinguish Fire too without flooding your buildings…

    I suggest a slight change to the Survivalcraft font. The dash looks like an equals sign. This means that negative temperatures look like =16. This is weird. This should be trivial to change.

    Add oil lanterns that you carry to as a mobile light source. You can select like normal item to carry or place where desired. Also able to equip on person like clothing, which allows you to mine, cut, dig.. etc at the same time.

    [X] Requirements:
    1) metal, glass, and oil
    2) various metal types allow for more durable lamps
    3) oil will need to be a need item mined, could be found like lava; collected with buckets; stores in berrels or in empty blocks; raw oil can light to produce light and burns on contact; oil can also produce new traps and fuel stoves

    [X] Benefits:
    1) mobile light source
    2) reduces need of placing torches everywhere
    3) scares off certain types of animals at night
    4) can break/toss on purpose to create fire

    [X] Disadvantages:
    1) if player is hit while holding it or falls from short distance, there’s a chance that the lamp will break and cause a fire
    2) certain types of predators at night can spot you easier
    3) if you run out of oil, you could potentially be stranded in the dark

    [X] Limitations:
    1) low distance that it illuminates (adds difficulty and reduces high processor requirements)
    2) limited oil source reduces the time adventuring in the dark, potential to be stranded

          On the contrary, do add rainbows. That would be a nice, beautiful feature if it were done subtly, much like the whale’s blowholes. I think this:

    I play SC and MCPE.

    These are my experience gathered over the years

    1st.)
    The game (SC) is cheating. Yes. When the darkness falls, the game teleport/summon/put wild animals around you. If you work in a cave, the game (SC) teleport/summon/put these animals above you, outside the cave.
    I created a map, flatworld. I built a 3*3 house with two floors (groundfloor, and 1stfloor).The radius is about 30 blocks, at every 4 blocks i took a lamp sunk into the ground. So, i’ve got a huge area, that lightened well. On the 1st floor i put a chest, full of food, guns and ammo. I switched the world to challenging. I got the supply from the chest, and at the border of the lightened area i began to circle. I shot every animal, except birds. When the darkness began to fall, i continued the circling. When at the horizon i saw the moon, i went back to the house’s 1stfloor, and began to watch the border. When the midnight came, the game turned on the cheat mode. In front of my eyes. I looked, and turned 180°. After a few second i turned back. And what i saw? The game (SC) teleport/summon/put some wolf at the border of the lightened area. And a bear. I said WTF???? And the wolves began to run towards me. From 30 blocks far!!!!! This is a f******** cheat! No wild animal summoned/teleported inside the lightened area. Just outside, and they began to run towards me. Is this real? No. Is this cheat? I think, yes.
    2nd.)
    The game (SC) is dead. Because there is no (human) life. You can build huge cities, but who will live there? Nobody. If you build a city, when you finished, what you get is a Dead City.
    In MCPE there are villagers. Ok, they aren’t interactive (you can’t trade, talk with them), but they eat, and go in or out the houses. At night they stay inside the houses, and run away from attackers. Ok, its not a real life, but better than nothing. You can build villages, cities and there are somebody who can live there. You can be their king or something else.
    3rd.)
    In MCPE there are three type of “ruin”. They called temples. Ocean, Jungle and Desert. So, you can search them, and explore them. There are traps inside. And treasures (useful things). In SC there is nothing like that. There is no ruins, or something haunted or abandoned building.
    4th.)
    In SC there is no goals. Except, the survival things (eating, mining, build a house, craft weapons, get food etc etc etc). When you got tons of food, built house(s), mined, crafted what you want, there will be nothing to do, except remain alive from one day to the next. In MCPE you can summon enemys (boss). You can beat the game (kill the EnderDragon). For this, you must do several things. You must go to the Nether etc etc. In SC all you have to do what it takes to survive. (ok, you can craft eletric things or something else, but that are not goals.)
    5th.)
    The SC’s graphic is better than MCPE’s. And to make custom skin or texture for SC is very easy.
    6th.)
    In MCPE, you can also build above the clouds. Funny, when the clouds are going away at your feet. And you can build flying islands under or above the clouds.
    7th.)
    Multiplayer…. SC’s split screen will be ok for pc, but for tablets and phones…. Have you ever heard about viewing angle? One player will look from the bottom of the tab and the other from the top, and the topviewer player will see bulls**t, i think. And how do you imagine that? Are Both of them holding the tab with their hands? And when in the game (SC) something sudden happening, the players will do some involuntary moves with their hands. Maybe only one player. He/she will involuntary shake a bit the tab, and this will annoy the other up. Funny…. Real funny. Or what? They must put the tab onto the table? pffff…

    to be continued…

    PS: Sorry for bad language…
    PPS: Sorry for hard writing. I mean, it sometimes feels like shouting…

    • Survivalcraft Survivor
      Posted April 11, 2017 at 16:32 | Permalink | Reply

      1st.)
      The game (SC) is NOT cheating. Do you know what spawning is? Minecraft does it as well! And also: just because Minecraft stops mobs from spawning when the light level is high doesn’t mean that Survivalcraft does.

      2nd.)
      The game (SC) is not dead because it is constantly being worked on by the developer, Kaalus (often misspelled “Kallus”). But in your sense: there are ANIMALS so therefore there is LIFE so therefore it isn’t dead. But what you mean: there are no humanoid animals in the game – who cares? – Quite a large amount of people actually and I’m sure that if Kaalus added humanoid characters to the game many players would be happy. But just because it’s a game doesn’t mean it has to have NPCs, having them is not on the checklist of being a successful game. In Minecraft people don’t build cities IN ORDER to spawn villagers in, they build them for the same reason as in SC people do: to be happy / to be proud / to be popular / to get attention / to create something beautiful / because they are bored / or something along these lines. Villagers are just a small tool to help the city look just that tiny bit more realistic. And also, Survivalcraft is about SURVIVAL (hence the name) not about building cities for NPCs, although many people still do that.

      3rd.)
      Survivalcraft does have some random structure generation, actually. They are called graves and traps (or pit – traps?). OK, they might not be extensive and interesting but they are there. As said previously: Survivalcraft is about SURVIVAL, not Indiana Jones style expeditions and exploring.

      4th.)
      Is surviving not a goal? Is defeating the ender dragon not similar to fighting hoardes of werewolves? Is building a nice house not possible in SC? Is building a redstone contraption not the same building an electrical contraption with SC’s extensive and advanced system? If there is no goal, there is no game (every game has goals).

      5th.)
      Finally a complement, yes: SC does not have bugs, runs smoothly, allows a two times larger view distance than Minecraft, has amazing graphics, as well as a very high FPS and almost no crashes.

      6th.)
      Minecraft clouds are very low and square (my observations). In SC you could also build above the clouds if the block limit was higher.

      7th.)

        I play both game on an android device. My pc is too old to run MC and SC.
        So if i write SC and MCPE, i mean SurvivalCraft android and Minecraft Pocket Edition android.

        1st.)
        What SC does, is not same as what MCPE does.
        In SC: i go to sleep. There is no wild animal around me. My house has fence. The fenced area is about 20×20 blocks. The house is 9×9 blocks. I go to sleep. When i wake up, i will see wild animals wolves, around me, around my house, inside the fenced area. Once, on other map, i built a house in side of a mountain. It has two floors (ground and 1st). I slept on the 1st floor, and when i woke up, went down to the groundfloor, i found a wolf inside the house. The light was built with electric things (bulb, wire, switch), And the switch was in ON state, so there was no dark. You can try.
        The wild animal spawn around me, not in the average, general world. They spawn near to me. So when i left them behind me, i will not find others about 30-50 blocks far.
        In MCPE when you’re sleeping, the game does not summon/spawn mobs around you, so, when you wake up, there will not be mobs around you. So the “after i woke up i stepped out from the house, and some wolves (zombies, skeletons) ate me” thing will not happen.
        2nd.)
        “if Kaalus added humanoid characters to the game many players would be happy.” – yes :)
        In MCPE the villagers look like lifepastiche, but when you go to explore nearby areas, and you find a village, you will not feel yourself very alone.
        3rd.)
        ok
        Maybe some lost civilization ruins shall be added.
        4th.)
        Yes yes..
        I mean, the difference between SC and MCPE is in MCPE there are jobs in addition to survival. Ok, SC is a survival game. I know this. Just when you survived more than 100-150 days (in the game), maybe you want more than eating, hunting, farming.
        5th.)
        As you say.
        6th.)
        “In SC you could also build above the clouds if the block limit was higher.” – on android too? When i fly higher and higher, the game starts say to me “Come back!”, and starts hurting me, and if i do not go back, i will die. In pc (computer, win7-8-10) maybe possible to fly to the clouds.
        7th.)
        “Just because it exists doesn’t mean you have to use it.” – yes, i just think about it, how would it look in reality.
        “Minecraft also has a split screen mode if you didn’t know.” – on android too? I can’t find the possibility of this.

          If animals are spawning inside your house, then there must be a spot that is not lit well enough. In my houses I never have this issue unless there is a darkish corner somewhere. So this cheating is nonsense. One light in a room is not always enough.

          The fact that SC is more of a challenge is what appeals to the game. I also play MC and it is way too easy. If you stay awake in MC, the mobs also comes to your location, but SC is a bit more aggressive. Multiplayer is the only advantage in MC and maybe the minecarts as well.

          I really never have an issue with animals spawning inside my house. It sometimes happen in my caves, since it is easy to get a nook that is not bright enough. In fences it should not happen if there is enough light, but it has a bigger chance of happening,but sometimes it is other reasons why an animal gets in.

        • Posted April 12, 2017 at 12:54 | Permalink

          “One light in a room is not always enough.” – there was no only one light, the ceiling was full of lightbulbs (lightbulb and wirethorough block), so there was not dark corner or place.
          The problem (maybe just mine) is SC put wild animal near to me. Not the whole world, just near to me. Somebody wrote like this with lions. When i go to sleep (in a house) nearby area is clear (no animals). When i wake up, the nearby area, or near my sleeping position threre will be some (3-5) wolves, lions, bears. It is not fair, i think.

          This is how SC’s engine works. Predators “smell” you and come to where you are, only at night. They will come from a distance even. They will also spawn close to you, but not inside a well lit room. This happened to me a few times and then I would find a hole where they entered. I played this game a lot and they never spawn in a lit room. Just check again.

          Yes you will wake up with Predators close by. The engine does however let them leave when the sin comes up, unless they see you. The idea is to make the game challenging. It might be better fkr some to rather play on harmless. I find that the animals have become a bit too tame. Lions used to attack you in day time from a further distance. Maybe you could ask Kaalus to add an intermediate level, something like challenging, but without too much survival.

          I would like the game to be a bit more difficult though.

          In any case, i like SC…
          Just i don’t like the method (wild animal spawn only near to you, while you’re sleeping)…

          I sleep in a 1x1x2 “hole” animals can not spawn inside of that, but still best to sleep with chests with armor, weapons etc, ready for when you wake up. Also spam torches, and build a small room 5x5x3, only real way to keep the leather sacks and useless lions at bay.

          Why do people struggle with animals spawning inside buildings? I really only struggle with this when I did not put enough light. I have very big buildings with no problem. Why are having this problem? I even do not have a serious problem in my caves when all lit. The only cause is not enough light.

          I’ve never been too sure that spawning works the same way as minecraft, in the case of dark spawn points. I’ve heard many people say it, but then why would we have animals spawning in broad daylight? There may be some more complex stuff to it, but I don’t think we have any proof.

        • Posted April 13, 2017 at 08:31 | Permalink

          Animals do spawn in day, especially when there are not many or when you explore new areas.

        • Posted April 13, 2017 at 09:19 | Permalink

          I’ve never had wolves spawn inside a cave or house or cave, mostly bears and hyenas, sometimes lions and rarely tigers.

          If you have wolves, there must be a hole somewhere.

        • Posted April 13, 2017 at 09:23 | Permalink

          The only other animals I have found in caves are moose and bison.

        • Posted April 13, 2017 at 10:20 | Permalink

          “[…] and they never spawn in a lit room. Just check again.” – I thought about it (i deleted the map)… And the hole was: the stairs… I think the wolf spawned there and went down to the groundfloor, because it was closer to him. And the stairs weren’t well lightened.
          “[…] I have found in caves are moose and bison.” – omg… :)

        • Posted April 13, 2017 at 15:52 | Permalink

          It looks like the mystery is solved, but it still strange that the wolf spawned inside.

        • Posted April 21, 2017 at 04:04 | Permalink

          Hmm… I don’t really seem to have problems with animals spawning in buildings, just any place with a roof and walls (or what the game counts as a shelter), animals should not be spawning in.

        • Posted April 21, 2017 at 12:02 | Permalink

          The problem is how on earth will the game “know” that something is built? There is no real mechanism to do this. The game engine will have to calculate weather an area is enclosed or not and then has to figure out whether it is a cave or built by you. The best mechanism is to use lighting, unless you have a better idea.

    Another great idea from komnick:

    Wind:
    1) it causes grass and flowers to sway, which will give the player an indication of which way the wind is blowing.
    2) it carries your human extent which will cause prey to run away if down wind from you or predators to hunt you down (triggers the pathfinding feature)
    3) it could blow out torches, causing players to lose their way in the dark or in tunnels
    4) could blow a sailboat which would be faster than rowing; would have to add a sail to craft out of fur and sticks
    5) a gust of wind on mountains could blow the player off to their death or injury
    6) gusts of wind can blow open wooden doors during storms… which would persuade players to use metal doors or sleep on another floor
    7) severe wind could cause tornadoes or micro bursts that damage terrain and structures… imagine the chaos with torn up pumpkin fields and buildings.

      I have to admit I like your Wind idea, especially the carrying of cent and torches being affected by weather (it’d be cool if they could also go out if it’s rained on).
      I’ve also longed for better boats rather then the rowboat we have now… sail boats is the obvious next and wind is something that can give it real physics and fits the theme well.
      I would also like some more weather effects that as you said could effect crops and stuff

      Awesome suggestion :)

      #2 “Scent”, not “Extent”
      #4 I like the sailboat idea – maybe sail made of cotton cloth instead of furs
      #5 we DON’T need new ways to die, I vote “No” on wind blowing players off mountain tops
      #7 see answer to number 5

      On pumpkins – why do we only get 1 for each seed? Why can’t you grow a realistic pumpkin patch (4-6 pumpkins) in the area where seed is planted you should get multiple vines on each pumpkin plant.

      Q. What was the reason for various sizes of immature/ green pumpkins?

    Hey, kaalus i think it would be nice to add in a new rare creature. We have the white bull and tiger in cold regions, so why not something in the warmer regions? I was thinking of the Thylacine, since the ship in the beginning looks to be from the 1700s-ish, it would work as thylacines were around at that time. The thylacine could be found in the jungles or desert biomes, and would not be spawnable in creative. This would give people like me more reason to explore the jungle, and not have to freeze to death to find a cool animal :)

      I agree that there should be a rare mob for warm areas, but as with all the current rare mobs I disagree it should be unspawnable in creative. Spawn eggs should be available for ALL mobs, regardless of rarity.

      • Posted April 19, 2017 at 00:45 | Permalink | Reply

        Maybe, but then it should have a limit of 1-3 or so. This is to stop people from spawning them into survival worlds. Either way, i would appreciate its addition!

      Right. I was anxiously waiting for the new SURVIVAL mechanic. Now, it’s been pushed aside by something irrelevant. Unless this comes out as full multiplayer, it’s totally meaningless to most players. Personally, I’d rather see the many bugs fixed instead of a feature only 1% of players will use!

        Johan, you apparently don’t know Christian history or (more likely) were taught by someone who didn’t either or that they even had the typical low level hatred of religion, as most government ‘teachers’ do.

          Hi Stanimus

          I am actually quite well versed in the history. I am not against religion at all, just against false religion. A lot of pagan things came into Christianity after Constantine in 321 AD. That is the main reason why there was a Reformation. The Reformation did not get rid of everything though. We could discuss this in private further if you’d like.

        • Posted April 19, 2017 at 10:25 | Permalink

          By the way, I’m actually a pastor. So much of what is regarded as Christianity, has all to do with paganism and nothing with Christianity. But it is good to see you are serious about these things.

          Posted April 19, 2017 at 17:01 | Permalink

          Most of the currently major religions have their holydays placed to either appease the masses or to cover up previous holy days. That doesn’t necessarily make them phony. But Sunday became the defacto go-to-church day because the sabbath is saturday and people are supposed to stay in home that day for private and family reflections only. It had nothing to do with the name of the day which had been established millenia before.
          I could tell you that I’ve studied many religions – their current practices and histories. But just like your claim of being a pastor, we cannot verify either, nor how we came to achieve those claims. I’m open to more discussion and to expanding my knowledge and understanding. If you wish, you may pm me on the official wiki and we can begin a conversation…

I paid money for the game, blood sweat and tears went into those 2 dollars. He shouldn’t be grateful to those that bought the game, but we shouldn’t be grateful to him either. Buyer, seller relationship, terms of conditions, etc, etc.

      Finally a positive comment! I 100% agree! There is nothing wrong with adding a new feature, and even when only a small fraction of the users appear to want to use it, it’s still a good thing! (I have a feeling that a lot of people out there are thinking that this will increase download time, waste their money, time, etc. SERIOUSLY? Unless you’re a homeless person on the street (no offense to homeless people) then I really don’t think you should be complaining about spending 2 dollars on an epic game and “wasting” 30 seconds of your life). Also, there will most likely be another survival feature added with the update, maybe bleeding, thirst, food rotting? Stop discouraging our amazing developer!

          Colby, you know Justin or Crafter just gets his rocks off with his hatred. He makes his phony excuses about showing up stupidity but that’s just a convenient way to deflect the truth.

          And Survivor, disregarding the needs of 90% of your customers to please 1% is simply folly or self-indulgence. I’ve backed up Kaalus on this split screen idea for one reason only – the hope that it leads to better multiplayer. At least LAN based. The majority of his customers use smaller handeld devices and this idea IS useless to us.
          I play survivalcraft for SURVIVAL and expected Kaalus to follow through on his promise. This deviation is quite disheartening for that reason, the more so since it’s taking so long and now he’s gone incognito again…

        • Posted April 18, 2017 at 21:46 | Permalink

          Well expressed! Even though Kaalus has not told us that version 2 will bring MP, it was for good reason that we assumed it will come. So if this split screen is a step towards true multiplayer, which I still believe it is, then great. If it is not, then we do have a reason being disappointed.

          Kaalus disappearing is not good, but understandable since he is alone. I am just worried that before I get to play MP with my kids, they will have left my house. Time is flying. There are games like Worldcraft that has multiplayer and it is a terrible game compared to SC. It is probably the best free sandbox game, but otherwise it is not great. I played it before SC, because I never buy games. SC is miles better (in my case, kilometres), yet WC had multiplayer years ago – not great, but it is there. Yes I know they have more than one person doing the work, but then Kaalus need to think in that direction. He really needs help.

          The only other game I’ve bought, was MCPE and the only reason I did, was to play MP with my boys. I’ve stopped because it is to me a lame game.

          Maybe Kaalus will figure out MP in the near future, but something we all must understand, the industry is not standing still. Everybody knows how extremely successful MC is. That means someday something will come along that will be able to challenge it. I believe SC has that potential with good marketing and of coarse, multiplayer. But it might be something completely new.

          Cellphone performance has grown leaps and bounds and if somebody brings out a game that is a mixture of Rust (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjispW_k1jk – Not my thing though) and SC, it will kill MC and SC. This is just one example of what might happen. In the days of Sinclair and Commodore, these companies tried upgrading a bit here and a bit there. They just took too long. They upgraded from 48K (Sinclair) and 64K (Commodore) to 128K in about 4 years time, without even upgrading anything else, except for a few small things. Before they knew it, the PC market completely overshadowed them and they disappeared into nothingness. They were the leaders in the home market and then they were gone. In the software world this happens as well.

          The world out there is not a picnic, it is war.

I was only trying to make this post a more positive, happier place by trying to convince people that even if something is used by 1 person and ignored by the rest, that is still a good thing (1 person happy, others indifferent). Another reason I wrote this is because I believe Kaalus is annoyed with the amount of complaining and hate he got when he posted this post, and that is why he isn’t posting.

          I’ve been a part of this community for several years now and this is Kaalus’ MO. He disappears for months at a time and leaves us all hanging. It has nothing to do with the comments.
          I was a strong supporter of this idea at first because of the hope he’ll use the experience to implement true multiplayer. However, if he disappears for 6 months and all we get is something very very few people can use then he’s wasted his time and ours. There are so many bugs in this game that really need to be fixed instead, or he should have at least released the survival mode changes that he started.

    […]

    8th.)
    Did you noticed? If you build something with “furniture”, does not matter wich material you use. I mean, if i craft/build a chair from (for example) copper with “furniture”, it becomes wood.
    You can try this.
    Build something from various materials, and that will burn like wood.
    I built a wall from copper and iron with “furniture”. After that, from that wall i built a house. I wanted to test the heatinsulation. After i built the house, inside this i put a coalblock middle of this. I grabbed a matchstick, and ignited the coalblock. The coalblock burned, and some secundums later the house caught flame. Whoa whoa whooo…
    What is this?
    So, i think -same as above- that does not matter wich material you use in “furniture” construction.
    9th.)
    “furniture”
    For me, it is useless. Because i can’t build custom chest and furnace. I can’t use electric. And Kaalus said; do not build houses from “furniture”.
    So, for me the “furniture” is just a decorative stuff.
    Ok, i can build custom switches, buttons, doors etc etc. But i can’t build fridge, or cooker/stove wich works.
    10th.)
    The dispenser does not “suck” items, like chest. So, i can’t build itemlift, or something else.
    If You can, please, make dispenser “itemsuckable”. Thank You!
    11th.)
    (now i must say something good too…)
    The “pistons” succeeded very well. I built doors, elevators… Better, than MCPE’s.

    … to be continued…

      1) Yep, unfortunately Furnitures keeps the same proprieties as Wooden (non-full) Blocks regardless of their Materials… I hope that will be fixed in a future Update… They are always flammable, they aren’t Fluid Blockers etc…
      2) Furniture can potentially be useful even in Challenging mode, with Custom Buttons and Switches you can invent something of cool or you can use a glitch at your own advantage were you can craft unlimited Wicker Lamp-like Furnitures!
      3) Nothing else to say about Dispensers, I agree…

      I’d have to say that if you consider furniture useles that it’s more an indication of a lack of imagination. Truly invisible barriers. Hidden doorways. Changing pictures. Realistic people. Disguised or hidden chests. Inaccessible portals for shooting dispensers. Working window blinds. “Invisible wires”. These are SOME of the ‘useful’ things we can make with furniture. Having a chair look like a chair instead of a couple boxes may not be ‘useful’ but it sure makes the game experience more realistic!

      Furniture is interactive with electricity so I don’t know what you mean by “can’t use electricity”.

        Well for someone that usually plays any other mode beside creative, pistons and furniture are useless. Furniture mainly because of the amount of blocks it costs and converting them into a single wood. Pistons their price, 100 germanium is too much work for 1 piston.

        Usefulness is in the eye of the beholder, so I can’t say this update will be good or bad UNTIL we all get it.

          if it’s easy to get.. then it’s boring..
          – I really enjoy how challenging it is to craft those without the help of creative mode..
          – Then you’re so obvious man, you haven’t yet tried creating furniture in other modes than creative. you get more than a single wood.
          – “Well for someone that usually plays any other mode beside creative” — simply describes you.
          – Furniture and pistons are great features that comes with great requirements(spray that damn bygon on spiderman).

          Creative is a playground.
          Harmless is an exploration.
          Challenging is a training.
          Cruel mode is the game.

          A great sc world, is up to the capacity of the sc crafter.

          I played in challenging and made four pistons and made a trap for wolves etc. with it. It took a while, but it was a challenge. Maybe that is why it is called challenging.

          Since when did pistons need 100 Germanium??? Last time I checked 5 x 9 = 45, not 100. Are we a little math-deficient?

          And I usually play in CRUEL. Which is why I’m a little disappointed with this major diversion of split-screen. Granted, furniture is not critical for survival modes. But pistons can be quite useful.

        • Posted April 21, 2017 at 12:15 | Permalink

          45 Germaniums… Ok… Only for One Piston… 90 for Two… 135 for Three Pistons…

        Furniture is interactive with electricity so I don’t know what you mean by “can’t use electricity”.

        I mean:
        – you can’t use all of electrical items (bulb, wire, led, thruth table etc etc etc.
        Yes, the “furniture” can connected to electric.

        When Kaalus worked on “furniture”, he posted videos. The first video’s end, he showed wich material can we use. I was happy.
        I designed, planned some “furniture” in my mind, and i created a map, and built theese, and waited for the update.
        But, when the “furniture” came out, i became sad.
        For example:
        I designed a lavalamp. Dispensers, wires, glassblock, lava, logic not gate, delay gate. But i can’t build this, because:
        – dispensers doesn’t suck items
        – in “furniture” you can’t use dispensers
        – in “furniture” you can’t use electric

        My other plan was a custom speaker. I like, when the soundgenerator works, and notes fly out from that. So, i designed a custom speaker, but it can’t be, because you can’t use electric in “furniture”.

        “Truly invisible barriers. Hidden doorways. Changing pictures. Realistic people. Disguised or hidden chests. Inaccessible portals for shooting dispensers. Working window blinds. “Invisible wires”. These are SOME of the ‘useful’ things we can make with furniture.

        I agree.
        If you create adventures or something like this, it is useful. Yes.
        But when you fight against the elements, wild animals, hunger, attrition, the “furniture” is useless, i think. Maybe just for me….

          It will be cheaper, if you dig for blocks deep, two blocks wide and put spikes to bottom. And build a bridge, one door both end.
          Or just put some wirethrorough blocks and put on them spikes, wire to a switch. And when a wolf stands on nonactivated spikes, you just pull the switch on, and the two wide spikes will kill the wolf. And then you pull the trigger again, and go for the leather.

          Spikes have a limited lifespan. I also need it to be automatic. I use chests to collect whatever. I first made traps using trapdoors and a motion sensor, but werewolves survive falling very high into chests. This is the cheapest, but it does not work as well as the pistons. I’ve made them to just move in and out all the time. The floor is glass and that is where I sleep. There are chests at the end. They work even if I’m not home.

        • Posted April 19, 2017 at 09:53 | Permalink

          Also, bears generally do not fall into two block wide gaps, they just walk over it. I’ve made the falling traps 3×4. The trap doors leave a gap open in the middle, but that works just fine. I’ll try to make my holes deeper and see if werewolves will then die.

          Even with four pistons, bears are not as easy to catch, but it works a lot better than a 2×2 or 2×3 hole. So my mission was to get enough germanium to build these contraptions and it worked. I do however believe that pistons are too expensive.

        • Posted April 19, 2017 at 10:13 | Permalink

          Yes. The animals bypass the gap, so it will be just a “fence”.

          You gave me ideas, thanks. :)

    Somewhere in here was a discussion about spawning. I need to say there is NO evidence that lighting has ANY effect on spawning. I’ve seen random spawns take place in bright light and in spaces as small as 2×2 blocks! I have many pictures to verify this. As a matter of fact, I just found a bear spawned inside a 2×2 horse pen with a torch inside the pen. You can hardly have a more lighted space!

    • Posted April 19, 2017 at 23:59 | Permalink | Reply

      Animals can also get in from a corner is it’s not properly blocked in. It’s a glitch, but an easy on to over come. I once had a 40×40 area sealed with walls, and very well lit. Nothing spawned in, but making all those torches and light bulbs was a pain, and you can forget maintaining them for long term.

      Lighting is horrible in this game.

        I have watched that happen more than once. I also have pictures of bears deep inside caves that spawned on high shelves only 2×2 blocks wide and blocked off so they cannot get out. Impossible for them to have made it into that space.
        But I have never had a spawn on something built above ground nor any space with a non natural floor material…

          I have done a bit of testing and found that animals only spawn on “natural” materials like basalt, grass, dirt, granite, limestone, etc. They don’t seem to spawn on wood planks, stone bricks or marble. My test had several 16×16 platforms, each lit with a single torch in the middle.

      More Animals (or even mobs) are always appreciated, especially if they drop something useful when killed or if they have other uses.

      Also, with the latest update we get only one new animal with each update (Except 1.26 IIRC), sooner or later we need an Update mainly focused on Animals (Or Mobs), maybe after 2.1?

        I don’t get why the alpaca hasn’t been released yet. There is clothing now, after all, along with ridable animals. The alpaca could do both. Yes, minecraft beat him to it with the llama, so more people would say it’s a ripoff, but look at pistons and dispensers! Sorry for the complaint, but that’s one thing I don’t get. Unless, of course, the alpaca was a rouse all along…

    Since This blog is dying a bit, i have once again uploaded my old world, Logic City. it is called Johan Logic City. Quite a bit in this world was done in Survival, but also a lot in creative.

    It still has an old elevator system in the buildings, but I have used quite a bit of computerised systems. it also has an animation, which is not bad. The Logic City light sign is just switched off. The phones struggle a bit with the logic in performance. Just switch it on.

    What is very relevant now, is the horizontal train using the normal piston elevator setup. Usually you can travel only about 58 blocks, but with my push and pull system, you can go about 114 blocks. This system is also more realistic, since i am using a “cage” in which you travel, just like a real elevator. This one is horizontal, but can be made vertical as well. Just think what a huge elevator and sky scraper you can build.

    I have also used furniture to build a trap for animals. I call it the Leather machine. The first one uses height and pistons, while the furthest second one uses a great furniture trap. It is the easiest to build and by far the most efficient. You must just use yourself as bait, but food helps a lot. Get underneath the chests and just hear the goodies fall in. One trap is “fed” from above and the other horizontal.

    There are many things to see and almost all the different locations are connected through tunnels, very very long tunnels I might add. This word is huge and uncompressed is about 328M, compressed 11.2M.

    It is a bit unrefined at places and some furniture designs have not been removed yet, sorry, but it is there to give you ideas. I love my underground gardens and Log cabins. I have played with some roof tiles on my smaller cabins. I also like big doors.

    Enjoy if you’d like and let me know what you think. It should appear soon on content. Some of the stuff is outdated and old, since i have been on this world for a few years.

    I once had a huge pyramid maze on it, but I have lost it unfortunately. Maybe somebody has it.

    It would be great if MP comes one day, then people can help with the building of this “city.”

      Hey, Johan. This sounds good – I’ll have to check it out. I wonder why we don’t hear from you on the forum or wiki. Either would benefit from additional input.
      I like your idea of the opposing piston lift but I’ve been working on infinite people movers, lately. So far, it can lift or push the character as fast as we can fly. There seems to be no limit in the horizontal configuration. The only problem is that sometimes the timing screws up and it crushes the character! (Yet another incentive killing bug.)
      I’m trying to determine whether pistons or furniture cause the chunk complexity bug quicker. So far, it’s unclear…

        You’re right, this is getting annoying, every year since 2014 it’s the same thing, he always leaves us waiting a “great feature” and then he release the update in december. It’s a lot of time of waiting between updates. 2.0 came out 11 months after 1.29. I supposed now we have to wait until november-december for 2.1, most likely december, there is always an update in december. Too bad because we paid for a “new game” wich is the same game with some pluses, and the updates still coming so slowly.

    Another good one is: “igor is kaalus” with no quotes. It has long sweeping coastline, and if you follow the beach to the left after spawn you’ll go past ice and snow to reach a warm, grassy plains next to desert with great options for setting up a shelter or two (keep an eye out for grass traps). Islands to the west are prime spots to mine for coal, sulphur, an copper.

    Kaalus I don’t know if you had noticed but the one thing about your character is if you move left, right or backwards your character in third person turns to that direction (east, west, south) but you in first person is still looking forward. That bug (don’t know if it is a bug) has been really annoying me the fact that it sort of makes it not realistic. If you have read this, then that means you have to fix that annoying bug.

    Kaalus, you once asked experienced furniture makers what we would like to see. I’ve become an acknowledged master carpenter on both the wiki and forum, and have to say the biggest issue is management of the furniture packs. It is very cumbersome and ovely complicated. We have to maneuver between the originating world, the game’s ‘Contents’, our file manager and the dropbox manager in ways that are very error prone and unduly intricate. For example, the machinations needed to simply update an existing pack without making numbered duplicates is simply horrendous. I could provide concrete, specific suggestions if you are open to them. I’m best contacted by pm on lefora (when it’s not out of service) or my wall on the wiki.

    I hope somebody can help me. I’ve installed SC on a PC and it behaves extremely buggy, so that it is useless. When I am in SC and begin a new world, it works fine, no glitches, but I can’t exit the game. If I escape, it will not quite, but returns to the escape screen. Then I terminate the game and try again. If I now run the same world, it begins right at the start.

    This sounds like a security issue, where the game does not have permission to write to its folder or something. Any ideas?

    he’s been gone soo long, imagine he pops up in July and says, btw, online multiplayer’s done. I would say it’s worth the wait, but then again, we’ve been waiting a long time…

    I noticed when the player goes into the negative coordinates (ghost chunks) they get a little warning saying “come back!” every couple seconds. Similar to when the player flies too high. Not quite sure if the player dies if they stray too far kind of like flying too high.

    I have yet to experiment with this more.
