Update

Hello Everyone!

As you all know, I have been working on the new update. Traditionally, there’s good news and bad news. The good news is that the update will happen, and very soon! High time, too.

The bad news is that of the three huge new features I planned, only one is completed. And it’s not the one I hinted about in one of the last posts. So, all your guesses made over that little piece of image I posted back then, they will have to wait. What I can tell you already, some of you have guessed correctly! You guys should be working for the police, homicide department. A few tangentially related black and white pixels, and you nail it. Startling.

Anyway, it’s not all bad about the update, because apart from the big feature, there will be dozens of little goodies coming as well. And the big one will make a sizable difference for survival and for creative players.

Here’s one of the little goodies coming in 2.2:

Wait, what’s that in his hand? Yep, it’s a club spiked with rocks, bleeding edge technology from the ice age:

In brief, in 2.2 there will be a tools and weapons system overhaul, to make Survivalcraft more realistic. I’ll let you know more about it and the other stuff later.

By the way, Ruthless Conquest got published on Steam. I am sounding waters there, just in case I wanted to release Survivalcraft, because I have never published anything on Steam so far. If you have a Steam account, grab your free copy from there.

In fact, Ruthless Conquest has become quite popular, there’s thousands of active copies across all the platforms, and usually 10-20 multiplayer games in progress that can be joined. Far cry from the 2018.

      After I saw your comment and looked at the screenshot again, he seemed kinda sad to me as well. But I compared it with a screenshot from an older blog post, and there’s no difference. So Walter isn’t actually sad.

    Old faithful kaalus! I knew you would eventually come through with something. I am guessing that the “big” feature you could be hinting at could be multiplayer since you seemed like you were testing it on ruthless conquest. Anyways, I am glad you are back and cannot wait for the new update. I will surely enjoy the new update and my viewers will be excited when I start posting new videos about the update on my Youtube channel. Anyway, I wish you the best of luck on completing the update and remeber to don’t givs up on the community even though they think you have left them. :)

    I’ve been checking every day! The dream has been achieved! I’m excited to see what 2.2 will be all about, it will be weird trying out new features in the game, since I only really got into a survival world around 2.1. (By the way, I have already e-mailed you suggesting this, but in case that was lost in spam, is it possible that you can add an option to disable lightning in worlds?)

    Kaalus, this is not a new idea, but it would be very cool if the game will be able to create modifications. I would then happily make a couple of mods and share with the community. This can bring new styles of play and entertainment to the game.

      Posted December 1, 2019 at 18:22 | Permalink | Reply

      Mods are illegal… Google Play has been flooded with illegal “mods” of Survivalcraft 2.
      They are free to download, but are packed with adds!
      Violation of the law!!!
      I simply cannot get Google to care :-(

      It has been a long few months of desperate attempts to get these illegal copies taken down, but in recent weeks, their numbers only exploded!
      There is a common trend…
      Each illegal copy has adds in the same places, and in app purchases to get rid of adds.
      No two copies are linked to the same account.
      The accounts have only one associated game (the illegal copy).
      All of the copies are updated together…
      All update descriptions are vague, but are features added to SC by Kaalus…

      The one of the latest updates was “support for 64 bit processors”…

        Yes, illegal mods is a problem. But only android have their. I woud like to have ability to install and activate any number of mods to any platform. For example: I installed mods A, B, C on my ipod and I activated only A and C in new world I made.

    I appreciate what you do, but I would gladly have given up all you latest additions, even though they are great, to rather have multiplayer.

    Anyway, please send us the texture pack that will be used for the final update. It will give us time to create new textures beforehand.

        Why do you bash me? I have been in this game longer than most. I know how much people want multiplayer. This is a forum where people share their views and requests. Am I not allowed to do the same.

        This request has been issued numerous times and yet here we are, still without multiplayer. So just stating what we still want, is not a sin. Stop bashing others please. This is a reasonable request.

    Great to hear from you again kaalus.

    2 suggestions for a future ruthless conqest update;
    1.make combat more fluid by still being able to control deployed ships by dragging the marquee around them and then selecting which planet you want them to change their course to, or even have them wait in mid space.
    2. Make customizable maps, or at least a little more control over certain variables wether you want antarians, reinforcements, or maybe you could place planets on a map maker.

    My best guess as to how Kaalus plans to make the weapons system more realistic, is by changing the way health is managed.

    Is anyone familiar with Super Smash Bros?

    Instead of having injuries — take away — from your health; injuries would only accumulate. The number of injuries sustained, and their severities, would influence the outcome of your next injury. That is; even if you have taken 300% damage by a bull shark, chances are, you wont be killed by stepping on that sea urchin on your way out of the water. But a nearby wolf… That would be the nail in your coffin!

    kaalus I think you should put what I have been talking about a long time ago, an option of having more than 18 colors in one world, because what good we can create countless colors and we can only use 18 per world. It would be really cool if you could put an option in which you could use up to 200 colors per world, which would make the color variation and decorations more realistic.

    kaalus would also be a cool idea to put in 2.2 colored lights that illuminate with different colors and also a choice of more powerful lamps to use in the street lighting of cities in the game
