We need this, right? Right? 

Anyway, I'll update this main post semi-regularly as Kaalus updates.

Use this thread to discuss new updates on the wordpress blog. We have a history of making a new post every time Kaalus updates so we might as well just use on thread to do it.

I suppose I'll start first? Is anyone actually gonna use controllers to play the game?

Yeah, i'll maybe dont use split screen for multiplayer but i'll try. Anyway, dont you all notice that kaalus said something in the music video, if i add npc, i'll add indian tribes. If i am not mistaken. This means that he is giving us clue for the long awaited feature:NPC.

That might be for another update, this one already has so much crap in it.

Idk how he's gonna handle NPC's. Only time will tell.

Honestly I don't like this 2.1 update.

Flu without cure and rooting foods without preserving, walk slower without shoes... That was funny I think.. I can run faster without wearing anything in my foots...

And most of all having flu just by eating the same food simultaneously ..

Like seriously?? Not kidding? How is that possible?

Tsk.... I'm sticking with 2.0 or find a new game..

I can't verify this but, someone said you can make rotten food good again by recooking it. That's something.

Getting sick by only eating one food IS reality but, it should take at least a few weeks. It called a vitamin or mineral deficiency and people DIE from it.

There IS a 'cure' for the flu - just get warm and have a good night's sleep. How hard is that? Seroiusly?

You already run faster with boots on - he just made it more severe. (Boots are one of the first things I craft!)

None of that really worries me. The increased lightning, worsened spawn ratio and rarer minerals  DO, however.

On the positive side, rivers, huge biomes and bigger mountains look amazing! Easier pistons lets germanium actually be worthwhile gathering.

Most of the rest of it is just meh. Color pallets is great for creative. Single device multiplayer is irrelevant to me unless it's preparing for online. Using controllers could be good, if any controller I have will be supported...

Well that walking speed thing might be acceptable but I'm really not ok with having sick by eating the same food...

It makes like the main goal of playing challenging/cruel mode now is focused on searching for food day by day.... What about if you're exploring caves which I'm doing often.... It'd be silly to go out again and again just to get food...

But of course there are some new features that I like.. multi colored led, rivers, bigger biomes and most of all split screen...

And for the "same foods" thing, I guess we'll have to carry two food types down there with us, instead of just one. Another good reason we need a backpack!

I think the most exciting thing for Creatives is the island mode. Also good for those that hate getting lost in an infinite world. I know that puts some players off, espially coming from MC. The new terrain takes some learning but finally we'll get some serious variation and landmarks. Lots of new play challenges, but Kaalus has been listening to testers and tweaking a lot. I hate jaguars.

Yes the mineral rarity has me worried. will be tough to get to "bucket technology", armor to kill the giant black rats (jaguars), etc.

Is the island mode available in all modes or just multi? It does seem interesting for creative/adventure builds as well. So long was the boat doesn't fail us too quickly. I'm more geeked about the crazy mountains and rivers. Watching his video, I couldn't help but pick out spots I'd like to build in. (I used to love the deep crevices in MC.)

One huge thing I'm wondering about is if we can use different characters in a 'single player', turn based world, like I'm involved in now... Neither I nor the other players can get the update yet. I buy from Amazon and they're on iOS. Ugh.

@aesop nice to see you again! The biomes got an overhaul so i think thats more exciting. I could see some of the biomes look a bit different especially mountains and the new rivers (cough cough rivertown). Ialands could be neat for an adventure map though.

I have the Windows update, and controllers are fantastic for Creative Mode. My kids play Minecraft on the Xbox, and I almost cried to see that SC felt like that build mode - breaking / placing blocks instantly, locked horizontal movement. I may not be able to go back to building on my tablet. :)

And Colin you know my Parkour skills. smiley: sick. I may even be able to do Challenging mode with my cheap $15 3rd party controller. There are some settings that help too.

Island mode is available for single or multi player, Creative, Challenging, etc etc.

Yes the crazy terrain and rivers are great. Thank goodness we can control it though - starting out on an island of mountains is just too crazy. And encountering a river off the bat reminds me of that saying, "careful what you wish for...".

Amazon is out now. But I know you know that! :)

Flu comes on too quickly

I do not like the fact that flu is so quick to catch. or so hard to get rid off.  I was literally inside a dirt mountain, no openings at all, and the coughing wouldn't let me do anything. That should have been enough to keep me warm.
I think it's excessive.  
So far in trying this new update out, this has become my worst point. I'll see how the rest goes as I proceed

@stan i'm pretty sure prevention is better than cure so maybe try not getting a flu? Idk how survival works.

@aesop Good luck on your endeavours! If one day you clear colours parkour thatll be the day we celebrate.
