2.1.6 going out

Another bunch of fixes:

  • Added new opposite screen layouts for 3 and 4 players (not that I think they will be useful for many people, but they’re trivial to add)
  • Fixed dispenser deleting items when firing them into a solid block
  • Tweaked chase ranges for sharks, werewolves
  • Fixed crafting seeds from pumpkins

Should be with you soon. Please update and keep testing. I want to start releasing for other platforms ASAP.

        Because it’s fun and because it annoys people who think they’re above it.

          Calm down.
          I at a venture/indirectly come here and saw there is a new post from Kaalus, and no one commented yet. So, after five years, i thought i can be the first. So i wrote “First”. But after that i wrote “Thank You”. So what is the problem?

          PS: i play SC2, but i did not notice the bugs. I’m lucky or simply careless.
          I’m happy, when a new update comes out. And I just thank Kaalus for his hard work.

    In the previous version, there was a problem with ‘half-blocks’ placing them in a roof configuration, if you later decided to make it a full block and tried place the full block in the same location, the half-block would actually be deleted (disappear) when the full block was added in the same position. Also had some trees that after catching on fire, the leaves would disappear, but you would have the fire animation floating in the air where the tree had been. If you’re firefighting (trying to put out a lightning strike burning your trees up) the animated fire block could not be broken (might be eliminated via rain?).

      The eternal fire has been documented on the forum. The only way I’ve found to delete it is to place a block in its place then remove it. They do seem to disappear on their own after a (long) time, however. But I’m pretty sure they also don’t catch other things on fire. It’s a strange glitch. Does seem to be caused when you get out of range of an existing fire, then return later. (Fires seem to freeze in time when you’re out of range.)

    • Posted June 29, 2017 at 20:21 | Permalink | Reply

      Actually, this strange glitch is just a graphic bug. It won’t make blocks or you catch on fire and it won’t disappear with rain. But like all bugs, it must be fixed.

    Little question here:
    I know you, Kaalus, added the option yo disable supernatural creatures, and I thank you for that, but…
    Can you, like for testing, remove the werewolves for one version?
    Just to see how it plays out.
    Then you decide to leave them or keep them.

    Hope you do this.



    • Posted June 30, 2017 at 02:38 | Permalink | Reply

      I don’t see what would actually be the point of doing this as you can disable them if you don’t want them anyway… no need to completely remove them.

    • Posted June 29, 2017 at 17:56 | Permalink | Reply

      I agree, If we have limited amounts of food in SC and people hate not being able to eat the same food and get sick, then why not be able to create meals? Or add seasonings? e.g. Salt, sugar or I don’t know up to kaalus. My idea is to at least Kaalus add one vegetable. Just one and maybe add the option to create meals using some sort of table bench. This will create more variation to people who get annoyed to the only available SC foods. Using bread with other foods will create a sandwich, using boiled water with other mixtures of food will create a soup that will benefit a lot. CREATING FOOD LIKE DISHES/COOKING IS AN ESSENTIAL FOR FURTHER SURVIVAL IN SURVIVALCRAFT. This feature may solve many problems.

      • Posted June 29, 2017 at 20:23 | Permalink | Reply

        I agree. But to make sure that we are using less ID’s, I personally want just rotten soup instead of rotten ”that kind of” soup.

    Maybe a bug: doors, stairs slabs etc. can now be placed in water as long as there is air or another block above it. This was not the case before. Looks very strange, too.

      • Posted June 29, 2017 at 20:49 | Permalink | Reply

        Positive. There cannot be any blocks underneath it, either. You need two block deep water, next to some blocks of course, place a stair next to the top block with the other water underneath, and be sure that you have a big pool of this deep water to see what i mean.

  15. Posted June 29, 2017 at 18:01 | Permalink | Reply

    Kaalus, adding a (not able to eat the same food) bar would help a lot, so people would know if this food is essential to keep eating. Sorry if what I said isn’t clear enough but well, you get the idea… so what do you think? Is this doable?

      Kaalus. I agree.
      Lightning strikmes 10 times as often as I think it should and does infinitely more damage than it should.
      Survival Craft is the coolest game in the history of apps.
      The only and I mean only thing I think could use some fixing is the frequency and damage from Lightning.

          Lightning’s frequency and damage is very out of balance with “reality”. He seems to disagree since this release increases the frequency! Sometimes I think kaalus is too close to the forest to notice the trees (see what I did there?)

        I agree, there are too many lightnings during storms in SC and they do too kuch damages, in real life, a lightning striking near you is kinda really rare and wouldnt likely happen more than once per storm.

      I thought it might have been a new feature on creative aswell, disappointed we can’t.. Yet…
      Perhaps an optional feature for Windows versions would work.

      I think that to move that fast it would crash alot of devices if they weren’t a high end PC, so introducing even a slide bar or camera tilt would cause more harm than good with so many people running lower or mid end devices.

          No underestimation, I have an extremely powerful Android device, 8 core processor, 4gb ram ssd etc. But my large worlds load very poorly on 320 block view, to much information to render for the system so flying at standard speed looks poor, imagine if it had to render 2or3 times quicker? I would cause the threads to un snyc and crash your game.

          Devices still have away to come to be able to run this properly on max settings. PC on the other had is way more powerful for the accessibility.

    There is a problem I have recently found, and thought I should report it here.
    I have an incinerator room in my house, I use lava to destroy unnecessary blocks, this is mostly for fun. Before the 2.1 updated I couldn’t hear the Lava, except when I was in the room with it. However now I can hear it in other rooms where I couldn’t hear it before. It isn’t a huge problem, but it can be mildly annoying when I’m building, and can hear the persistent bubbling of the Lava.
