Windows Store & Windows Phone out

2.1.21 & 2.1.31 bugfix updates should be available for Windows user already. Here’s the list of changes:

  • Fixed performance drop when gamepad connected on Windows 8.1 (thanks to spoon3er for bug report)
  • Fixed look touchpad being shifted up when move buttons are visible
  • Dropbox login fixed on Windows Phone
  • Dropbox login should work even if the app gets killed while you are in the browser entering credentials
  • Corrected typos in animals descriptions
  • Fixed scrolling by two pages in creative inventory panel

Other platforms will receive those fixes too. I am currently waiting for a PS3 controller to be shipped to me so that I can figure out why triggers are not working.

    First! Kaalus there are two bugs that I want to tell you about. Firstly there is a bug where if you vomit or cough and you keep on pressing forward, you will still lose stamina. Secondly, if you keep spamming jump, you will lose a lot of stamina even if you only did three or four jumps. Please fix these bugs before you release it on iOS. Thank you!!

    Windows bug report. When playing, the mouse begins opening windows, freezing the game. The taskbar becomes visible etc.

    Hi Kaalus. So I recently got myself an Xbox 360 Wireless Controller and tried to play Survivalcraft 2 on Windows 10.

    I am not sure this is a bug or it’s just my controller. It’s about the thumb sticks deadzone. As you may know, these thumb sticks are not perfect. It can be a bit loose in the center. So my right thumb stick does that. And because of that, my player’s view on SC2 rotates on it’s own. I can just realign my thumb stick and center it but it’s a bit f a hassle.

    Is adding a deadzone (sensitivity) on the controls something you can do? Or do we have to get XInput wrappers and adjust deadzones ourselves?

    It doesn’t happen on other games. I was playing The Witcher 3 and even with my slightly loose right thumb stick, my camera don’t wander around on itself.

      There is deadzone sensitivity already in controls!

        To clarify that…
        In SC there is already a deadzone sensitivity setting! Go to settings and it’s under controls

    Thanks kaalus for fixing windows bugs.

    Can you fix that in adventure food rots. Because it is really hard to play people adventure worlds. I always die of hunger because the food is rotted when i arrive to the chests of food.

    Also can you make the flu not so easy to get, and what clothes actually protect you from cold. I freeze to easy even with a fur coat on.

        Kaalus can probably make it to where furnaces can expect food/fuel drops and put it in the correct spots then cook it, then the player can take it straight from the furnace

    Kaalus, whenever my guy is looking at my inventory, a chest, a stove or a crafting table and I sneeze it closes them.
    Is that a bug or is it on purpose?
    Also, is it supposed to be super easy to get the flu?

      As is, you are pretty much guaranteed to get the flu on the first day. Then pretty much guaranteed to be dead the next…

    This may be too much for kaalus to do, but it would make me very happy to see the following things implemented in the next update:

    -Antidotes for flu and sickness
    -Glass Bottles(Each bottle has a distinguishable shape)
    -A “thirst/dehydration” game mechanic
    -Different weather instensities; Make it so that there doesn’t have to be lightning every time it rains, Its getting annoying having my ivy-trees get razed and the rain never even extinguishes it as fast as it should in real life…
    -Local Wi-Fi Multiplayer and/or Local Multiplayer via Bluetooth
    -Fishing rods and Fishing nets
    -More pieces of chainmail armor
    -Bear traps
    -Native American Indians as NPCs
    -craftable larger boats(i.e A fishing boat)
    -Living starfishes
    -Animal Breeding
    -An ability to cook using a campfire
    -A new item called “charcoal” since currently you can somehow make rock-solid coal out of burnt tree logs
    -Animal taming(not all animals), genders, and breeding
    -Different crosshairs for each ranged weapon(i.e. A stone chunk’s crosshair is not the same as a Bow’s or Crossbow’s)
    -A flintlock pistol
    -More extinguishable fires(since the rain currently present in the game does nothing to open flames)
    -Horse Armor
    -A slight increase in an axe’s hit ratio
    -Cannons that can fire objects much further than dispensers can
    -Food preservation aside from cooking(i.e. Adding salt or storing food inside a fridge)
    -A blood option(i.e. Blood splatters whenever two or more mobs are fighting each other)
    -Ambient Music(Different songs that expresses the present events around the player, just like the way its done in Skyrim)
    -An option to choose one of the eight default outfits for your character when using a custom skin
    -More food varieties(i.e. berries, bananas, etc.)
    -Ore nuggets
    -Rare treasure chests that could spawn anywhere in the world
    -Ability to use ivy to tie mobs to a “pole(a fence block)” with chains(and maybe even shackles) made out of iron nuggets to serve as a stronger counterpart of the ivy strings
    -Reworked female player sound effects(The sound that a female player makes when she is harmed makes me giggle even though I’m running out of food)

    Again, I am not demanding that kaalus add all of these in the next update, I’m just hoping he will pick what he wants and squash the present bugs in the next update. Feel free to tell me what you think of my suggestions.

    Now we can drown in a single block of water. When you’re sick you do not even have enough strength to jump out of water. Then when you sneeze, apparently you fall to your knees because you begin to drown.
    So, if you step into water with a cold, you are doomed.
    The game is broken.

      Bug report:
      No, apparently Kaalus said that he fixed it but still, no sign of easily moving out of the block of water if you’re wearing fur, armor or your speed is decreased because of a certain reason. (I know that these clothes actually must make you slower and this is fine) it’s just the problem of GETTING OUT OF WATER BODIES THAT ARE ONE BLOCK IN HEIGHT

      Kaalus please fix this because it’s extremely common in survival and is one of the top reasons of death in Survivalcraft.

        If you are wearing heavy armour like chest plates etc. It is harder to get out so you have to take off that a armor.
        You can “fix” this by using chain mail armor. LOOK IN THE RECIPEDIA OR HAVE YOU TESTED IT BEFORE? Wood armor does not do this I think. You will have to have a spot for armor to take it off
        Diamond armor makes you sink but it has no slowing effect.

          I was not wearing any armor, just the original rags. Never had a problem getting out of water before. The real problem is drowning in waist deep water, just because you sneeze!
          Do we need to start carrying wooden armor in case we fall into water? (Wooden helps you float.) So, try to quick-change to wooden to get out, then crawl to make a hole in hopes to dry off and get warm before we die of hypothermia?
          This issue would be reduced if it simply did not always rain the first day!

    Windows Bug:

    Just mentioning this again. When I play, the taskbar pops up and the mouse becomes active, even opening taskbar menus, then of coarse you lose control and if you are in a fight, you die. This is becoming quite serious. Funny enough I was lucky so fat, not to die. It seems that as you play, the mouse cursor follows your movement and when it reaches the top or bottom, it activates either the top or taskbar menus. Please fix this.

    • Posted July 6, 2017 at 08:33 | Permalink | Reply

      It happens to me everyday… once I had to press pause, open inventory, or open body to return the mouse cursor back to the middle and unfortunately I died getting kicked out of my boat because I was playing split screen and I thought pressing pause will solve the problem.

        • Posted July 6, 2017 at 18:17 | Permalink

          That is not the problem. I always play maximized. If you are in a SC Menu and you move the mouse to the bottom, the taskbar pops up. It is not supposed to do that.

        • Posted July 6, 2017 at 23:04 | Permalink

          OK, the issue is only in maximized mode. When I have the white bar at the top and the taskbar at the bottom, it works fine, otherwise, the taskbar appears when I move the mouse down when I am in a menu. When I move the mouse to the top, the white bar appears.

    Kaalus, we’re wondering, what are your plans for the next several updates? I must say you must add THIRST. It’s the most suggested and the most simple

    • Posted July 6, 2017 at 09:14 | Permalink | Reply

      I like all the realism and I hate things being unreal, but I think we are going into severe micro management if thirst is added as well. Realistically it makes a lot of sense, but where do we stop? Should we then also have pee and poo, or what about bathing, washing hair or polishing shoes? We can then also add torches and coal blocks burning up and lava cooling down. Can you see that this will become an issue?

      Maybe we should need to comb our hair, brush our teeth and clean our ears as well and don’t forget to blow your nose as well. As it is, we have a lot of micromanaging. All this prevents you from having time to build things like it used to be possible. Maybe there should be a mode where there is less of this, to have more of a mix of survival and creative.

      So, to add thirst would be OK, but then there should be different difficulties, not just harmless and challenging (and cruel). So if somebody wants true survival, give him all I have mentioned, well not all. For me, this is just way overboard. This is still just a game, not real life.

        Thirst isn’t going to be a problem

      • Posted July 6, 2017 at 10:08 | Permalink | Reply

        Avoid other things, just need thirst in the game and that’s it for Survivalcraft 2017 maybe more bug fixes and other stuff added shouldn’t be problem, just ignore over attention on the player, look at the animals, and we need farming, we need genders, we need breeding, we need more use of animals in a more friendly way at them. Killing isn’t the only way to benefit from animals, we need more stuff. Taming and Breeding. That’s all for animals

          We have genders, male and female.

          There should be a button in the settings for worlds for thirst and etc

    • Posted July 7, 2017 at 17:13 | Permalink | Reply

      I agree with Johan Steyn. Thirst would make the game more realistic, but too many survival mechanics get overwhelming. Just trying to get fresh food is already time consuming enough. More game time needs to be reserved for building, farming, mining, etc. If thirst is added to the game it needs to be optional. I know that I will probably never play with it.

  15. Posted July 6, 2017 at 08:38 | Permalink | Reply

    OK, here is my take on all the improvements:

    I was a bit negative with all this rotting and freezing. I have now played the game a bit and reached level 8 without dying once. I spawned in a relatively cool area and it was quite a struggle to stay warm enough. There are also no pumpkins for miles around, but I managed with birds and the occasional moose. I played in biom size of 1.5. Above the biomes becomes a bit big for me. I want some variation. 2 will also still be OK I think. I also planted rye without saltpetre and cotton to keep me warm. I made a leather trap with furniture, so I have enough leather.

    Right in the beginning I did get flu, but managed to survive somehow. One concern as well, is there were no mountains close by and I had to mine the old way without any caves. Finding coal was a mission as well as iron and copper.

    Yes, I think the flu is still too severe, but generally you can avoid it. And yes it is a bit too much for drowning in water, but maybe we must just avoid getting it.

    But, if I spawned in a snow area, I think flu would be a very serious and maybe unplayable. So Kaalus, if possible, tweak this a bit.

    I’ll put this world up on CC at some stage for those who want to see the furniture trap.

      The problem for some is splutscreen, if your alone, its a problem. To me, I have my friend who played Survivalcraft with me for 4 years and yet this update made us play Survivalcraft a lot more often. We worked, we played, we built, we survived, we died, we hunted, we mined…. It became one of the best Survivalcraft moments of my life. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS LOCAL/ONLINE MULTIPLAYER AND THIS IS A VERY COMPLEX FEATURE TO ADD. This shouldn’t take more than 5 months of working. But I agree that we don’t have to whine about having these features, we should thank god we have this after waiting for 6 years of our lives. Survivalcraft is so much in my head, I think a lot about it, it’s becoming more and more familiar… Survivalcraft is the best sandbox survival game ever created in our opinion. Thank you Kaalus for all that you’ve done for us, you truly deserve this great position of fame, you are the best developer ever.

    Ok, off to a new topic for Survivalcraft.
    It’s about graphics realism.
    Has anyone seen Minecraft E3? They are currently making a reference to the shaders mod into the game. It’s super duper graphics and obviously the realism of the graphics is from sonicether (a minecraft graphics coder) who made this mod and has now become an official pack for minecraft.
    Link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vyr3XZrZssk
    Minecraft is laggier than Survivalcraft especially with extreme graphics. This means that there is better GPU processing in Survivalcraft. If Survivalcraft is able to do this, I will be truly amazed. KAALUS, CAN YOU TRY TESTING THIS IN SURVIVALCRAFT IF POSSIBLE? if so, then you could be helping the game a lot. Graphics will gain Survivalcraft some extreme attention.
    This is just an idea for graphics, it’s a bit harsh to code but just wondering about Survivalcraft’s GPU handling, thanks for reading this and good luck.

    Its disgusting how the Community Content section in the game is loaded with roleplay-related stuff. Why add roleplay elements in the game? Please don’t let this game end up like Minecraft. Just STOP. 😒

      What does RP have to do with Minecraft? It’s no way similar to how it’s played in SC since Minecraft at least has the most basic multiplayer that allows RP to play out easier, LAN, and has servers which allow good RP worlds. In SC, it’s just spam spam spam spam spam in the CC when it comes to RP worlds. Either the game needs a search bar, categories, or both preferably.

    Hey Kaalus can you make it so you’re able climb up vines if you hold jump while you are touching it? It would be useful in adventure maps and if you need to make a getaway from animals that are chasing you. I would really appreciate it if you add this as a feature.
