Hello everyone!

Long time no see!

I have two pieces of news for you. One is bad, the other one is good. I’ll start with the bad one.

The next update for Survivalcraft 2 won’t make it for Christmas. I have been working on it for the last year or so. The major new feature that I am adding is large, and it should expand the survival mode in a big way. Creative mode would also benefit nicely. Unfortunately, I got stuck on some difficult aspects of it, and never found the drive to finish it.

I can’t give you any concrete date, or even reveal the new feature yet, because I don’t promise anything that I am not 100% certain will be delivered. This new feature is so wide that it can still get bogged down in unfixable issues. Here’s just one hint to get you started on guessing:

Now the good news.

While you are waiting for the next update, I have a new Christmas gift for you. Do you still remember Bugs? Well, there’s a new game coming out this Christmas. Just like Bugs, it will be completely free and without ads or nag screens. Moreover, it has multiplayer. And not just any multiplayer, but internet multiplayer with internet servers, so anyone can play with everyone else. It’s called:

I’ve just released it on Google Play. Download 100% free here:

Other platforms will follow. It is a Christmas gift from me to Survivalcraft community.

Long time ago I used to work for a games company as a network programmer. Unbelievably, a few months ago I got myself hooked on game networking again. The result is this new little game where you can control ships like that:

I won’t reveal many details, you’ll have to check it out for yourselves. It cannot be all bad, because it has Antarans in it :-) Yes, I borrowed the name from one of my favourite games of old.

Yay, play on the internet!

Internet multiplayer is a new ground for me, I have never released a game where I need to maintain servers, so that you can keep playing. I am sure a lot of things will go wrong. I spent long hours testing it with plenty of kids (we have visitors for Christmas), but how it will behave when many players from across the world start connecting? I cannot predict.

Have fun!

    Es genial al menos saber que estés trabajando para mejorar el juego, muchos de los comentarios en la publicación anterior del año pasado decían que lo habías abandonado o estabas muerto… pero es gratificante saber que no es así, esperaré con ansias la update de survivalcraft 2. Se que es difícil hacer un juego y no es cualquiera que lo hace bien, agradezco que al menos por fin dijeras algunas noticias ¡Ya puedo estar en paz! No me gusta especular pero debe ser grande lo que estas haciendo Kaalus ¡Ya quiero saber que es!. Por cierto no es por criticar ni nada pero la característica de la podredumbre creo que está un poco rota… a veces cuando cazo un animal el pescadito en la esquina derecha ya se muestra en naranja y no en blanco… mucho más antes de lo que debería. Sin más me despido y Feliz navidad Kaalus que la pases bien.

    Great to see you again Kaalus!!!

    I have spent the past year learning C#!!! I have been told by some that this game was written in C#, and your files/technical section is, in a way, confirming this input.

    What an odd language though! I am better at C# than any other language so far, and have made a good game too! But the whole thing is rooted deeply in graphical user interface. I cannot, without damaging performance, or dabbling in expressly – off limits – frameworks, bend the language to my will sometimes :-). Even so, I have excelled!!! One aspect of java that I like is the decentralized array of fully reverse engineerable resources. C# does not give such luxuries, but still offers the most cutting edge utilities windows has to offer.

    Why did you choose *this* language? What are it’s strong points in your opinion?

    • Posted December 24, 2018 at 04:45 | Permalink | Reply

      Justin, my dude! It’s been a while.

      I’m glad to see you have started learning C#, that’s really awesome. You should show me what you’ve learned sometime.

    Thanks for being back. Please don’t disappoint on SC. That is our main focus here. I hope the experience on the new game will help MP on SC. If you can just give us MP LAN for now, I’ll be happy. We’ve been waiting for that for many years.

      MP LAN would be the one for me too, though sometimes I enjoy the solitude, but this would give us a choice. One game set up one way and one the other, we get the best of both worlds .

    My guess: “open” leaf blocks. I.e., ones you can pass through. Useful as bushes or leaves where you won’t die by collision. Also useful to hide within.

    1. Usually when a texture looks like this, it is paintable. Does this make sense?
    2. Next option is that you are completely overhauling the texture pack system. That also does not make sense.
    3. Almost the same as option one, I believe seasons are coming. The new textures will make leaves change colour (hence paintable – not really). This is huge and will be very difficult to implement.

    May I just ask one big favour, please don’t let this make that we do not get at least LAN MP. You have done so much to the game, but it is so lonely.

    Will bears hibernate in winter in cold biomes?

    Have a blessed Christmas.

      I’ve done this to my texture pack with the wooden planks texture (Johan Real HD). If you paint them, they do not get the colour you painted, instead the painted colour makes it look like different types of wood, having a bit of a different colour though. You can check it out to see what I mean.

    I have started a Survivalcraft themed Discord server. If you don’t know what discord is. It’s a place for gaming communities to chat and get to know each other. Discord is available on PC, web, and has a mobile app for most mobile app stores.

    Discord also has support for many different languages. Speaking of which.

    We are aware that survivalcraft has a very diverse community all over the world. In the two main survivalcraft discords that are currently active, this is very apparent. Because of this, we decided that this discord server should strive to support multiple different languages/regions. What does that mean? Well, the server is set up to be friendly to native speakers of multiple different languages. Many don’t know it, but Survivalcraft has a rather strong appearance/community in many different languages. The main ones being English, Russian, Portuguese, and Chinese.

    Anyone is welcome though. Additional languages are already supported, and will be chosen to be supported as the need arises (although there is no guarantee they’ll have similar chat activity, and we need staff for each one. So feel free to apply for staff in your native language’s category)! And don’t worry. Although there is a global chat where everyone can send messages, you can opt-in to join any specific language’s group/community that you want. But it probably is best that you understand or are in the process of learning the languages that you decide to join though. Also, we are dedicated to making a safe place for everyone. That means the chat will be “family friendly” and any sort of racism or purposefully offensive content will be removed and the user appropriately dealt with by the staff.

    So what are you waiting for?!? Here is the link that will direct to the English instructions, it’s easy!

      Speaking of discord, there is another large, slightly more active discord community based around building projects. It’s primarily English based but the community is respectful and welcomes anyone willing to help and participate within the server. I highly recommend also checking it out.

    I assume, more trees? And or diversity in specific types of trees
    This is not a bag guess, given the cryptic reference to leaves. I do know, leaves are not colored in texture packs, for the sake of visual diversity (birch leaves in the desert vs. birch leaves in tundra).

    So this could also hint at more biomes too,

    I assume this because of the direct exposure of this little known feature of SC as noted above; however, more specifically that which is mentioned in parentheses.

    Also noted Is the name of the image:

    Oak-Leaves-0.png

    Which bears an all too specific number “0”.

    The number may be tied into anything, like more oak tree leaves.

    Perhaps, even tall oak?

    Conspiracy is not my strong point though, so please do laugh, I welcome it! All is all good. :-D

    Kaalus is seldom so ridiculous as the theories we have seeded into the community. (like people assuming death at the advent of his absence — I have done my research though, Kaalus first made this as a joke a very long time ago, as a forewarning of a short absence being possible)

    With the return of our legend, 2018 will end on a good note.

    Okay, I got that out f the way so now for my actual thoughts.
    I’m glad that you didn’t abandon the game. Multiplayer is a hard task indeed on many different levels and Ruthless Conquest looks cool, I’ll check it out.

    Now, I suspect part of the reason for this game is to test out the multiplayer function. I hope it works out and as someone who is learning how to code I can forgive to cold shoulder that you gave us, I mean. I’ve been working on a remote device control for android for a few months now and though it’s mostly finished there is still a few core “features” I need to iron out and it’s hard to find the drive to do it so sometimes. Sadly, I can’t say the same for others for many have moved on.

    As most of us do(well those who are remaining), I hope a multiplayer functionality comes to Survivalcraft 2. But, even if it doesn’t as long as there are quality updates and abundant content I don’t see myself quitting Survivalcraft 2 any time soon.

    Wow… The one time I decide to check in he posts… Welcome back! I think the new feature will be seasons. The reason it’s so large could be the fact that Kaalus is overhauling the terrain? Maybe it will be based on latitude and longitude, where the equator is always hot and the further north/south you go from there the colder it gets. This could have some very new and interesting effects on the game, for all modes. Not sure how older world’s would react, though. Perhaps the leaf block is frosted or snow covered to signify colder temperatures, I don’t know. Seasons would work really well with this game though.

    I am guessing your issue has to do with the hue system. In the texture file, leaves are black and white and then the game automatically adds the color. Maybe your problem is adding the color to the leaves texture.

    I guess it is multiplayer. That is the only big thing you could have been working on for so long

    Kaalus, please bear with me. I know you have heard this many times.

    All I want is LAN game play. I’ve waited years for it and still it has not arrived. I do think that LAN and probably WAN will be included, but without it, I am quitting SC for real. Anyway, I am very hopeful it won’t be necessary. I enjoy making texture packs and skins, but am tired of not being able to play with my two boys. Since you have disappeared, I have made peace that SC is dead. I actually have played a bit, but without MP, I really don’t care for any new features any more. I know Stanimus and Drake also feels a bit like this. We all have been here for quite some time. I have put in a lot of effort to encourage Youtubers like Echosoldier to keep on making videos for SC and I suppose once an update comes out, I’ll do it again.

    Sorry for sounding negative, but a lot of us have also contributed a lot to SC. I think people who created that automated room or the big elevator and if I may, my own Real colour TV world, have also helped SC be a popular game. We have added texture packs and skins. Yes it was fun making it all and we know you do not owe us anything, but… We were angry that you have left us without a peep and that right after we bought a new version of the game.

    Kaalus, I understand that you can lose your enthusiasm, but at least let us know why and do remember that SC is not just about one person. It has become a community. SC has a huge influence and can be seen especially in games like Rising world. SC is for sure the primary drive in creating that game, yet SC will always be in a class of its own.

    Anyway, thanks very much for being back!

    hopefully now that he has experience with making a multiplayer game he will feel more open to making survivalcraft multiplayer.

    Cambiar a españolhello kaalus thanks for being with us again I’m youtuber and I’ve uploaded videos of your wonderful game and I appreciate that you are again taking up your work in this game, and well I in particular as many other players of this wonderful game have been waiting in the next updates some features I’ll only show you some of our requests.
    the order does not matter I just wait and consider it for future updates.
    1.- Multiplayer (wifi or Bluetooth)
    2.-Npc
    3.-that the items are not broken with water (stairs, fences, doors, ovens, etc.)
    4.-more variety of foods
    5.- more minerals
    6.- to be able to give it by means of a yunke (for example) more edges to the axes or more rapids when stinging with a stone peak.
    7.- That there are some plants or flowers that can be combined and that generate a cure to cure the intoxication.
    8.-That the domestication and reproduction of animals exists.
    9.- Add a crafteo to make a fridge or lake so that the food lasts longer.
    10.- Add more life in the sea or be able to use crafteos algae, or starfish or hedgehogs.
    11.- that in the tombs the treasures are in chests so that they do not disappear when the chunks register an atumba on the map.
    12.-Random structures like temples, with traps and treasures.
    13.-Add thirst (drink water and purify water)
    14.-add ties to tie the horses.
    15 .- bats
    and good kaalus is something that occurs to me but only you are the one that you are able to add more layers to this game greetings and thanks

    the new update either includes tree withering or actual seasons in the game.

    Kaalus, when you do make this new update, do you think you could make sure any old worlds will not be ruined by it? As in, the new update either integrates into the old worlds, or doesn’t affect them at all. I’m afraid of my long term creative world project being messed up. I’ve put a LOT of work into it. And it’s big and beautiful so far. There is no way I could duplicate it, (that would take forever!)

      You could perhaps export the world to your SD card and make a copy of it? Hope this helps!

    I would originally have thought a new tree or biome. But since the link to the file says ‘Oak Leaves’, I am guessing at snowed or frosted leaves. If it’s frosted I am guessing new weather? Or if it’s snowed I will say it might be seasons.

    I’m Guessing the Next Update would be seasons, where the leaves changes color depending on whether the world is at Spring, Autumn, Winter, or Summer Season.
    btw I’m very glad that you’re back Kaalus and I can’t wait to see the next update.

    That cube looks like a globe (interpreted as a cube in a blocky universe).

    Also that cube looks like a topography map for a cube.

    Also that cube gives me a feeling it could be a portal block.

    I felt like crying and laughing and jumping and screaming at the same time when I checked this site in hopes that you are still alive. Welcome back Kaalus.
