Multiple players

The biggest feature of 2.1 will no doubt be ability to have multiple players in the game. I will stress this again – this is not yet a true network multiplayer, but split screen multiplayer on a single device.

Network multiplayer would be ideal and is obviously a long awaited feature, but make no mistake, split screen might at times be just as good if not better. The advantage is that you are right next to each other, not in different rooms or even countries, and so cooperation comes very easily. We’ve played the split screen with my kids for many, many hours now, and it’s an absolute blast. At least once you get used to gamepad controls :-)

Anyway, here’s some UI screenshots. That’s how you edit players in the game. You can add or remove players at any time:

Players1.jpg

That’s how you set up a player:

Players2.jpg

You also need to decide how you want your screen split up:

Plenty of different layouts are available:

When’s the release? My todo list for 2.1 is down to 11 items from 16 at the last post.

Next time I’ll show you some of the survival goodies coming up. Remember the funky thing you still cannot figure out? There’s a lot more to it now :-)

    The stupid “second” comment appart, that’s really good news Kaalus, but I think you shouldn’t disconsider the possibility of adding network multiplayer, It’s ok to see how things will work with the split screen multiplayer, but you should work on network multiplayer on a future update. (Perhaps when you find a way to gain money and mantain the servers)

      Servers are not necessary. They only provide a way to have persistent worlds. Online can be implemented as other games do – you join someone in their world running on their system. MC does this as do others. You don’t have to join the ‘Realms’ server.l to play in your friends’ worlds. They just have to be online and have their settings right.

      A way to get money would be ads. Google ads should be used instead of iAds. Ads would appear when downloading content. Small banners would appear anywhere except the game. Also, a short video could appear when sleeping!

    Will their be any advanced features for windows pc users? I know I’d like the ability to have a pop up window for multiplayer rather then pure split screen, and then maybe so support for multiple monitors, unlikely I know. Thinking it may be nice to have my family battle over the tv as split screen where I can play happily on my laptop ;). I hope you will consider if plausible. Keyboard + mouse controls while looking up at a large tv screen while it is connected to the tv through an HDMI may get unconformable too.

    • Posted May 23, 2017 at 16:26 | Permalink | Reply

      Exactly what I was thinking! It would be nice to break the windows apart so that you could place them on multiple monitors so it is not crammed on just one.

    Most of the players would like to play online but this split-screen thing really got a bit discouraged, since most should play on the phone.

      Are there chances of putting a multiplayer over Bluetooth or Wi-Fi? Or would that be much further? Me and my nephew were anxious and would only give to play for an Android TV Box: / because of the screen

    For this multiplayer feature, you need to add gamepad support, like MCPE with a OTG and Bluetooth. Playing with gamepad is a lot conformtable. Also, it’s a good feature!

    The possibility to edit the screen split is really good, such a shame that probably I cannot try it.

    Now we know that the new characters have a name… And is good to see that the good old “main” character has a name now.

        pero considerando el hecho de que el personaje principal jamas ha tenido un nombre propio, y que este nombre que tiene se lo escogio kaalus, podemos decir que el nombre oficial del personaje es drew, aunque sea personalizable, el nombre fue el primer nombre que ha tenido y seleccionado con kaalus, desde mi perspectiva.

        But considering the fact that the main character has never had a proper name, and that this name has been chosen kaalus, we can say that the official name of the character is drew, even if it is customizable, the name was the first name that has Had and selected with kaalus, from my perspective.

        • Posted May 27, 2017 at 15:10 | Permalink

          I haven’t said we can’t call it “Drew”. I have said that names are costumizable. So we can call it “Drew”, but it is not an official name.

          Hi there

          Kaalus has solved the problem. It has to do with the location settings of Windows. If your Windows is set to use a “,” for decimals, change it to “.” (full stop). This solves the problem. So small, yet so big……

    Just some repost back concerning SC2 not working on Windows 10. It is the Creators update that causes it. I have had a two hour chat with MS on this issue and they claim there is nothing wrong, yet the Internet is full of complaints. For now there is no solution, except to revert to an older Windows version, either by system restore or Windows re-install. They actually blame Kaalus for the issue and said he must fix it.

    The techy said he will escalate the matter, but I doubt it though.

    this is what im kinda thinking about why online multiplayer isnt here yet. its actually a little more complicated than people think though. the code of multiplayer itself is actually pretty easy, but maybe he just doesn’t really want to have to maintain those servers.. the thing is, with servers, it is suggested that if you own a server you have a fast running computer, because you have to host that server, but I think possibly kaalus would not want to make us pay for servers, so he could beat Minecraft more. but if he did that, think about it, he would have to have a few mega fast computers that were always running with fluid coolers so that he could host all the servers thousands would create. in that case, he would be forced to make us pay for servers so he could pay for those expensive computers at least. I think if he had a good running company with multiple people and computers (aka office locations and employees and stuff), we would already have it. but until he takes that big investment in something that has a slight chance of backfire, we won’t be getting it. this split screen I think is could be a test to see who plays it and how much they enjoy it, and then he will take those results to decide if people would pay for him hosting their servers. idk but this is just my guess. maybe we can back off online multiplayer a bit and be happy with what we have and what we know were getting :)

    Feature Request #1:
    Can you make it so when you die in cruel mode that you can fly around and just view the world?… kind of like a ghost and you can’t interact with anything. This way you can see how pathetic you were when you died. Oh, and can show off your accomplishments from your life from the cruel world.

    Feature Request #2:
    It would be awesome if the game would auto screenshot the times when you were super low on health… this way you could see flash backs of your near death experiences when you’re dead and laugh about how you survived!

    I think kaulis should add more features for survival to be more efficient,

    Like more variety of food sources, a way to breed animals, and a thing to carry more inventory,

    Also make lightning not explosive when it comes contact to the surroundings, also make it not burn stuff under the rain because i didnt see lightnings in real life do that and also SCraft is suppose to be “realistic” COME ON!!

    ( mansion just got burned bcoz of lightning……so sad😔😖😭)

    Hi, I am new here I have been following this blog a while and I think it’s time for me to join in. Anyway, here’s the features I want to see in the future.
    – Seashells: Now that we have starfish and urchin which doesn’t move or anything. I think it’s perfectly okay to include them in the same category.
    -Fruits/Vegetables: Because I don’t think you can survive in the wild by just eating meat, pumpkin and eggs. We need more healthy food.
    -Bees: They are very important, they can produce honey that can be edible and can be used for medicine for survival.
    -Fishing rod: Need I to say more?
    -Taming: We could tame wolves and coyotes as dogs. And others like cattle, ostrich and boar to become livestocks.
    -Breeding: I need to make an leather/fur farm.
    -Free movement animasjon: As soon we get in the deep water, you could animate the character like it’s swimming.
    -More warm clothing: Again, do I need to say anything?
    -Sinking mud: A challenging feature for survival players.

    Others with no description.
    -Poison.
    -Ability to get sick.
    -Bag
    -Ability to heal your horses.
    -Taller trees.
    -Make the day last longer.
    -Reptiles
    -Stronger boats

    Sony for the spamost btw.

      I don’t want anyone to feel offfended, but where are we going with suggestions? Some of them like seasons, rainbows, sickness/poisoning are really good. But please consider that all that animals need a texture, need rendering, need ways to interact with players and other animals( I am a proggramer). Also thing how slow will the game run with thousands of animals in the same chunk. I’m not saying that new animals will not be a good idea. But slow down a bit! Do we really need all of the new animals?

      On the second thought, this is just a game. Not real life v2.0. Just SC v2.0. Games can be at least realistic. They can’t be real. We can’t add all the 8.7 million species that exist on Earth( https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/08/110823180459.htm) with interactions, textures, rendering, and all working fast with less phisical memory. Yeah, all that animals, their positions, type, damage consume an amount of memory.

      I also think Kaalus appreciates all these suggestions for us, but consider that maybe he will add just 5% of the animals. I would like to see more awsome realistic things to interact with.

      I agree with: rainbows, seashells( they match the game’s theme witch is not “”The Zoo” and we can it them), fishing rod, swimming movement animation, mud, poison, stronger boats. Also consider rivers and waterfalls. So much stuff that won’t slow down the game too much, it’s also realistic, and Kaalus can add.

      Note: Read it all before replying.

        Well the only animals I suggested were bees and reptiles. Pluss I don’t agree having every animals in the game, as everybody wants elephants, gorillas, pandas, hippos and whales. I feel like those are too hard to desing and will cause the game to lag. But bees are perfectly safe to have, they don’t need a spawner egg or interact with other animals. For example they can be inside a beehive and when you break it, they will sting you. Maybe also fly around outside.

        And as for the reptiles they can be new class order of animals. We only have mammals, birds and fish. Well the only ones I personally want are the ones who could poison us witch causes the players to get sick.

          This reply was for you and kakashihatakethe6thhokage666, but more for kakashihatakethe6thhokage666 and less for you. With these new arguments, I can say I agree with bees and reptiles, but I personally don’t think Kaalus will add insects.

          In fact, I don’t want kakashihatakethe6thhokage666 to feel offended, but she wants most of that 8.7 million species that exist IRL in the game.

        I feel like it might be a good idea for him to try to publicly add a new animal every 1 or 3 months. This will discourage long breaks/people whining about long breaks. And also get in the highly requested animals/features.

        • Posted May 26, 2017 at 07:16 | Permalink

          I don’t think it might be a good idea:

          All animals need a texture, need rendering, need ways to interact with players and other animals( I am a proggramer). Also think how slow will the game run with thousands of animals in the same chunk. I’m not saying that new animals will not be a good idea. Also, all animals, their positions, type, damage consume an amount of phisical memory.

          So adding too many animals can cause the game to lag.

          That’s an interesting thing I want you to also think about: I have downloaded a big world recently, and I have modified almost all performance settings to play it smooth on my tablet( which is not so old, buyed it in July 2016) beacause it was a great world. If big worlds cause the game to lag and/or crash( on Android), think how will the game run with thousands of animals in the same chunk. It will explode!

          Also Kaalus focuses on delivering us bigger updates with more features at once. So despite the long breaks, we really have fun with the new features. I think also Kaalus does his job right when adding unique and more useful features instead all what the people request. I am not saying people don’t request great features( can’t wait for the multiplayer others have requested for me!), but some of requests are junk or spam. For example, kakashihatakethe6thhokage666 requests more animals than Kaalus can add beacause of lagging and memory problems.

          Also adding animals slows him down with bigger features like multiplayer, or other features, that are more interesting and more useful. Imagine, for example, that someone doesn’t know how to cook and learns new recipes every week. After learning one recipe, that person opens a restaurant. Now think that he decides to learn how to cook soups first. People will be bored by eating just one kind of food, so will go to other restaurants. Now imagine that the only features Kaalus adds and posts here these months are only animals. People will be bored about the not so interesting features, and will play another games instead. How would you feel if Kaalus will make almost only animalsand will always postpoint the big features? Speak honestly!

          Note: The game’s theme is not “The Zoo”, after all.

          P. S.: Read it all before replying.

          I just hope everybody knows that I suggested more stuff then just animals…

        • Posted May 26, 2017 at 12:29 | Permalink

          I was just making a suggestion, but I disagree with most of what you said. 3 months is a good enough time to get a animal done, the hardest part would be complex interactions like ruining from a whistle, and then stuff like the animations. Which not all animals need atm (complex interactions). The modeling and texturing may take up a day to get it right. And the most important thing is that it will act as a motivator and discourage the long breaks most devs take from time to time. Releasing info every 3 months would lead to him constantly hoping back onto the project and releasing new info on game development that would likely be followed or be following other new info!

          As for the performance, it’d barely be effected. It takes such data already… And it isn’t like more entities will actually be spawning, just more varied! I can see no harm in this. Other than how it might effect pack animals.

          There it’s already entity limits put into place, go into creative and use a bunch of eggs :p.

          Survival craft is a game based on realism, we could do with a larger variety of animals out of earth´s vast list of species. But I don’t really want “Zoo the game” either. . It’s just a suggestion that would keep a steady stream of content. Besides it would likely only slightly increase animal production, of you look at all the animals that have been added in the past from the start of the game´s development. This would just be more of a promise and a motivator. Updates will still be released the same way(whenever kaalus wants to/something big is finished).

          Shadow Lemon Panther: kakashihatakethe6thhokage666 opened the animal subject, not you, I agree. I was talking more with her and less with you.

          Sephiths: You are right. I haven’t thought at the spawning limit, which I knew it existed. So in my mind were spawned so many animals in the game that it crashed again and again. I still think Kaalus should add what animals he considers it should be in the game.

    One simple thing I’d like added as an option: a day changing notification. Such as, when you finish a whole day it will say “Day two”, mainly so we can keep track of time. (Namely because I want to have a timer for how long I can build up my pvp fortress against my brother’s)

          Yeah, basically I want there to be times set for each action, so you build your fort until the fifth day, then war begins. On the 10th day, the battle is over. Stuff like that, to let you know what day it is so that you won’t have to see looking back at the stats.

          This would not be realistic. A survivor would look at the stars. But that’s only my opinion. Kaalus decides if he adds this or not.

          Then use creative to make 2 mechanisms with RT cloks that show you and your brother the exact time. You can make them near your shelters, in some places when you will see them without receiving any damage.

    Also none of those layouts are practical.. None of them have inverted controls.. Everyones arms would be tangled up trying to play, with no room for personal creativity to spark. With such clustered controls this entire feature will inevitably be useless. Kaalus… Invert the controls.. Give us more bro.

    I think the funky thing is removing blocks on terrain, like the no blocks mod in minecraft, where most blocks found in surrounding areas are have slopes not edges, thus making it more realistic, and the green blob on the middle is just a grass block on the middle of a sand.

    Maybe..

    Kaalus. There is this one problem with the character and that is if you walk left while facing forward in first person, he’ll keep looking at that direction in first person but in third person my guy is facing left. A bug is if you keep spamming jump you’ll waste more stamina even if you only jumped three times. One more bug is if I sleep in a tree then I press the sleep button, the Whole tree vanishes. Good game though. I don’t think I could make a game that great 👍.
