Windows Store in certification

I’ve just published Windows Store (Windows 8.1+, Windows Phone) for certification.

Here’s the list of changes from Android 2.1.6:

  • Increased amount of animals spawned
  • Fixed rendering issue when underwater and resolution set to low/medium

I’ll let you know once it passes (or fails) certification.

I will release these small changes for Android soon too. The remaining platforms waiting for release are Amazon and iOS.

        That’s true. I am personally on Windows, and am excited for gamepads, TVs, and splitscreen.

      iOS is always the last one in terms of SC updates, keep in mind.

      (due to Apple store certification or something like that)

    Kaalus, it is possible for you to update the game to allow a player to split the screens when using multiple players, to where you can have separate screens on different monitors per say for the PC version instead of two screens on one? This would be appreciated since my computer has multiple monitors and it would be nice to have each player’s screen on a different monitor, and not squeezed on one!

    After one hour running around in 3x biome lol, i see it isno’t difficult to play like other people mentioned. I survived well, food wasn’t a problem. Level is little hard to gain. I haven’t found a big cave yet. We wont get flu if we run under trees. Female character’s sound seem ‘fake’ when she get hurt. Rhinos is very agressive, he attacked two wolves and then attacked me with no reason( i just came across and stand far away from them). Sleeping takes long time but it seems fine when i need a rest.
    And the game isn’t as smooth as before( i keep the same setting like 2.0)
    And one of my creative world is drowned in 2.1. It was a flat world with bedrocks( i created it in order to move some bedrocks to create a house) . Now it’s underwater lol.
    Great update, great music. Thank you Kaalus!

      Yeah..some players still complaining about food rot its realistic and all you have to do is learn to manage hunting and farming….i love the leveling system it makes my char run like a horse and outrunning/chasing predators๐Ÿ˜„

      That’s beacause of the new terrain generation that generates bedrock only on positive coordinates. And since he added negative coordinate support anything on the negative part on flat generation mode will generate as water.

    I might just be missing the option, but is there a way to “disable” a player? It’s kind of annoying that once you add a player, the only way to play without that player is to delete them. It would be nice if there was a way to temporarily disable a player, keeping their inventory, levels etc.

  17. Posted July 1, 2017 at 03:14 | Permalink | Reply

    I am not understanding how coordinates work in the update. My old world did convert over. It’s coordinates on the seed I am using is 2800 and 4600. I started a new world with the same seed so that I could tweek some of the other things in the game and those coordinates are no longer used. I start at 56 instead of 2800 and 195 instead of 4800. I tried going that far inland to 2800 and 4600, but still can not find the area. So does the same location no longer exist on the new update unless it is a old world, or what am I not completely misunderstanding how the new coordinates work?

    • Posted July 1, 2017 at 08:12 | Permalink | Reply

      On coordinates: The old terrain generation spawned you with random coordinates that were always positive. The new terrain generation has negative coordinate support and has the middle of the world at the coordinates 0.0, and if there is water, I think the game searches for ground or sand or whatever to put you on. If not found in the area that is rendered at that time, you’ll spawn in a boat at 0.0. That’s why the coordinates are smaller.

      ON THE LANDSCAPE: It no longer exists. 2.1 has a new, improved terrain generation, so it won’t generate worlds as 2.0 did, even with the same seed. So you’ll never find landscapes from 2.0 again in 2.1, even in the same seed. For example, if we draw the same object, will the drawings be identically? No, of course, beacause different people draw differently. So different terrain generation systems generate the terrain differently. If you deleted the world with the 2800.4600 coordinates, then you’ll never find that landscape again. You can go and find a new one instead.

      (I am a proggramer.)

      HOPE IT HELPS! :)

        Thanks, for replying. I understand better now. I was thinking that last night after I posted, that the terrain must be so different that they seeds no longer exist.

        • Posted July 1, 2017 at 21:21 | Permalink

          No problem :) During summers I usually don’t touch my code editor, but proggraming is what I do like best, so I really enjoyed answering technically to your question. It really got me out from my daily summer routine! I must thank you for asking lol. :)

      My guess is that, because of the new terrain generator, old seeds will not work the same now.

    • Posted July 1, 2017 at 14:29 | Permalink | Reply

      The way i understand it, a seed will tell the generator how to load the terrain.

      Because the terrain generation is different now, the seed will not generate the same world as it used to

        Fyi, Windows apps from store only support XBOX Controller…. It is not about what gamepad i use, Windows Store app wont support it. Windows have XBOX thing built in it.

        I played un-window-store app using my gamepad (Pewdiepie and legendary of the brofist) and it works very well.

        I tried Windows 10 app such as Flappy Bird, Alphat Airborne , Minecraft Win 10 with my gamepad…. it didnt work………….

        Please Kaalus do something…

          +dan riefhan idk what you’re talking about. I’m able to use a SteelStratus XL Game controller and I’m able to use it just fine. Its not an Xbox controller either.

          I use a SteelStratus XL and a win10/Xbox wired controller and they both work for Survivalcraft 2 and McPe.

          For whichever gamepad you’re using check if there’s an external app you need to download. Bc my SteelStratus couldn’t connect without the Pivot app.

    Same problem here!!! Windows 10 apps are Savage!!! I emailed kaalus he said basically that windows universal apps don’t work with direct input controllers, they work only with x input controllers. Why!!! I bought 3 controllers and none work, they all work great in the control panel calibration works etc… But SC and I guess all windows apps won’t work with them!!! So far I have not been able to emulate the direct input to x input. BUT I am pretty sure it is possible. Have tried x360ce and it won’t work cause you have to put the program in the games root file, and as far as I know it is impossible to paste anything into the root file of Windows 10 apps๐Ÿ˜‘. So I am currently experimenting with InputMapper 2, which is a program I think could emulate x input. But still I haven’t figured it out. OVERALL huge waste of time and money!!! Hopefully kaalus gives everyone a warning in his next post. To everyone still shopping,. GO WITH THE WIRED XBOX 360 CONTROLLER AND DONT LOOK BACK!!! Hope this helps someone, it is what I have found after hours of research and trying and wasted money…๐Ÿ˜ซ

        Also in my research I found that it may be possible for direct input to be compatible with SC. But the only way would be on kaaluses side of things. I believe it can be coded into the game. It’s my last hope…

      I feel a little bit betrayed. When kaalus promised game controller support he never said that windows store apps have limitations. I assumed I could use my gamestop USB Controller which works for normal games perfect.
      Is there a workaround? Emulator or anything else?

    I found something that maybe needs to be fixed. Even if the playerโ€™s sleeping bars are almost completely drained, a very small bit of sleep (immediately aborted by tapping to wake up early) will completely recharge all sleeping bars.

    Windows 10 computer has been released. Just updated mine last night at 2am.

    Not a big fan of not being able to change controller layout.

    But kaalus I’ve noticed something that you didn’t mention in any of your posts. What will happen if you eat too many of the same food? Bc I ate 4 pumpkins and it said “you ate to much of the same food” or “you’ve already eaten this food”

    something around those two saying.

      You mean something like “You eat this too often”? That’s the first warning for eating too much of the same kind of food. The second warning is “Eat something else, You will get sick!”.

    The gamepad issue is yet another example of Microsoft’s illegal ‘nepotism’. They were sued over a similar issue back in the 90’s. Now, they pay politicians better so it’s unlikely they’ll be challenged on it. It’s clearly an anti competition practice!
