Temperature

As you’ve seen in the videos, there’s a new simpler temperature bar coming in 2.1. It simply shows the temperature of the environment around the player (not body temperature, you can check that in Vital Stats panel).

The thermometer has 7 possible readouts. The middle one, with skin-tone color is the ideal environment temperature. The one below it should still be fine if you have some clothing on. The two most extreme cold require specialist clothing to survive, preferably made of fur.

The hottest readout will quickly give you blackouts if you don’t move to a cooler area. The orange ones are good to sleep in when you have flu.

In 2.1 environment temperature varies much more with day/night cycle than in 2.0. Even if you can comfortably stay outside during the day, at night you will likely get cold (and sneezing! Shudder).

      This Xp thing is not that realistic. Why not, the player gets experience by crafting new things. The more he walks, the stronger he/she gets, and lesser chance of getting flu and conserves more stamina. The more he swims, the stronger he/she gets, and can swim faster and hold breath longer, also conserves stamina. the more we row our boats, the faster it will go.

      The Xp we collect from mining and graves just makes it more “Minecrafty”. And that means the game would be unrealistic

    Really nice and simple idea, but usually if there is a negative there really should be a way to prevent it. Such as overheating? Maybe? Like you gave us the option to wear warm clothing to protect us from the cold, but what about items that make us resistant to over heating, unless Kaalus you make water consumable.

    Kaalus, would you consider making spin off games based on the survivalcraft model?

    It would be a good way of getting the financial rewards you deserve while keeping the player base engaged.

    I’d particularly like to see a pirate version of the game with the following:
    -pirate npcs
    -larger boats for multiple players
    -parrots
    -pirate themed textures/skins
    -cannons
    -generated structures including shipwrecks and treasure chests

    What do you think?

    Currently, the temperature is stored at the end of a chunk in the chunks file as a single value. I wonder how this change affects how that information is stored.

    • Posted June 17, 2017 at 16:53 | Permalink | Reply

      I think that value is already lowered/added depending on the biome.

      • Posted June 17, 2017 at 22:12 | Permalink | Reply

        The temp/humidity is set for each column of a chunk. So there are 256 values per chunk.

        • Posted June 17, 2017 at 22:26 | Permalink

          Yes, but that temperature/humidity values depend on the globally set values

    Who remembers the temperature update way back in December 2014? I think it was either 1.25, 1.26 or 1.27… memories! I was so convenient, I built a mini game in creative that you play with your friends, I though Kaalus was going to add multiplayer after reading this post but… I wasted hours even days trying to finish it. Ahhh but I knew this is dream is finally a reality!

    Well the temp icon looks better… But can you get too hot from being in the middle of the desert, in the middle of the day, with no water and actually take damage? Cause this would make getting cactus (endless fuel source) more difficult to acquire. If it does just look fancier, I’m not impressed.

    Make a map very hot, very dry(almost no trees), hardly any water, twice as many enemies (rotten meat thanks), and all while not being able to level up. Sounds like a place I’d want to live in the game honestly, Die hard difficulty!

    Already survived a month on insane difficulty, with hardly any land, freezing rain, and very few trees, need a nice summer home in “Nightmare mode” to match.

      I always said about deserts being dangerous, and the only way to prevent suffering is wearing either a hat (not an old hat) and/or clothing with little insulation (cotton clothes only).

      There two main points of dangers: one is heatstroke – one is sunburn.

      To prevent sunburn/sunstroke you must be covering the most majority of your skin so only cotton clothing and staying in shade as much as possible in day time.

      To prevent heatstroke you must prevent wearing thick clothes and staying cool (getting wet).

      What I suggest is adding thirst before having this in the game because my idea was collecting cold water in a bucket and storing it in an insulator chest which prevents items from environmental exposures like rotting or thermal changing. Having a water bucket that is filled with water from a different biome will make it change in to the temperature of the biome it’s been placed to. This may be difficult to do with buckets and water temperatures but having thirst shouldn’t be a problem and it could help a lot with temperature.

    I’ve found something which could possibly be considered a bug – stone chunks can be spammed to nearly insta-kill any creature in the game. This is mainly an issue on PC (where the player just has to spam right-click), but is also possible on mobile at a slower rate.

      I know I don’t know why Drex (Survivalcraft main character) never loses stamina when throwing anything throwable for more than 40 times. There must be a timeout every throw for 1-3 seconds depending on your stamina. Full stamina = 1.5 seconds
      Half stamina = 2.5 seconds
      Nearly empty stamina = 3.5 seconds

      Throwing anything in sc more than must lose one stamina for every 10 throws.

        Omg you are missing the point.. If its playable on one screen.. You can screen share.. And play over your internet..
        Example: I download the survival craft update.. And team viewer.. Then i have my friend download teamviewer.. We link our devices (using internet) and I load up the new survivalcraft update.. This shows up on her screen. Then she holds her phone upside down. So she can play on her phone.

        This way we can play multiplayer… Without lan.. Its a rough form of playing online… You can play with someone over your internet.. But this is all.. Not lan play.. Not wifi multiplayer… Just one on one.. Using a screen sharing app..

I have tried using Splashtop on my powerful desktop to my fast Android, through a high-speed router with 100mbps fiber optic and a ping of 25 and the game was totally unplayable. And that was on the same LAN network! IDK maby team viewer is better then splashtop. I have never used team viewer before…
