just stop by to say Its awesome! Is it written in lua?? And what method you use for fast sine and cos calculation?

(Edited 1 time)


When will the next release be published? This game is so awesome.


Hey cHyper, thank you! Maybe next week.

@MrCerealGuy: Will you continue to impliment anything into this project of yours?

Hi BluA57, yes :D. The next release is coming soon!

I want to be able to chose what mobds apear or not 

Those giant worms are so often found that i can not build anything without this fear 

I want to see a setting on the not so simple mobs where chose how rare will the mob be 

because u rember when i said that Phonixes were litteraly hunting the player 

so it whould be a good idea making the rarity bar

Hey, it is planned to offer more options. Maybe next release.

ok

its strange when i play it cause i go to a world i then run the game but the computer takes over as if im not in control my computer just blew up several of my best creations which all took several hours to make i will intall the update then try again...

(-1)

how use the instaler ? I open it ... Nothing happens ... I reopen it it says Pls cloe the running setup to continue...BUT there is no running setup..Do i have to WinRAR it ? 

(+1)

Oi, mate, you complain too much. You do know this game is just a unfinished project that contains numerous bugs, right? Now quit your whining and learn how to use programs carefully before you start downloading malicous things. =3

ok I know that the game is on alpha But the job of an aplha or beta tester is to point out all the bugs thing that I am the only person that does this . And my problem is not the little bugs My problem are the bugs that do not let u play the game itself 

Hey, I asked you several times to give me the content of debug.txt, nothing happend until today. I can't help if I don't have any error reports.

K

How to use? Double-click and follow the instructions. You're the first person who can't install Stonecraft :D.  I use InstallForge for creating the setups, so I can't give support for this software. I'm sorry.

THIS VERSION OF THE GAME COMPLOTS AGASING ME ! I can't create a world of any kind . Whatever I do it whould give me a error message Whatever error JUST FIND ONE ! Snow mod or other things that come with other mods I guess ... IDK I can't create a world !!!

I've just uploaded a new version. Give it a try.

It did not even completly instal but I can't run my old world Because : The Server is probably running a different version of stonecraft....AND WHAT ? Why not ?

i  can play for one day?!?!

does it require wifi

No, you can play over a wired network or start a single player game without a network at all.

do all minetest mods work in stonecraft?

I don't know. If the mods are up to date, then they should work with Stonecraft.

ow nice ! In this version i cant even try creating  server >:(

Make i easyer man :(

Why can't you create a server?

idk how

And btw i cant even craete a world with this version ! Nothing m8 ! I cant create a survival or creative world everytime i get the same crap of some errors or something with files or....something similar

Please make a bug report >> Stonecraft Bug report

what is the sense of this now? I just told you what is the problem

No, you didn't. I need detailed information, error message, your debug.txt and so on.

When i create a world in the ''server'' tab  it says this : An Error Occured 

and some other stuff than just a dev expert will understamd

I am a dev super mega ultra noob 

(but still interested)

Hmm...for me it works. Can you paste the content of Stonecraft/bin/debug.txt at pastebin.com? Send me the link via the Stonecraft Bug report. I need more information, thank you!

ow wait...I am on ver 1.2.0

I have to reinstal everything now

The Game is Crashing when i play in-game

(Edited 1 time)

Hello NobodyKnowsMe, can you paste the content of Stonecraft/bin/debug.txt at pastebin.com? Send me the link via the Stonecraft Bug report. I need more information, thank you!

(+1)

Are there any mods in this game? and also, this is a fantastic game! i'm looking forward to the finished game.

Hey Astheno, thank you for your comment. Please have a look at my wiki Modding Stonecraft.

(+1)

I love the game! Even told a few friends about it. But I have one question: Will you have the option to upload your own skins in the future?

Hey, thank you for your comment! I think so, but the upload process must be very very secure if players can upload files, so I wait until I have more time for that.

Deleted post

Nope, in Stonecraft are many features you won't find in Minecraft (vanilla version) and it's open-soure (c++ and not java) and free of charge. I have Minecraft too, and I want make things different. Try it out and make your own optinion, Or let it be :D.

(-1)

minecraft copy

(+2)

You're funny. We should drink beer together and talk about Stonecraft.

(+2)

Stonecraft is minecraft with mods but free

(+1)

I swear to god that spider texture in one of that screenshots is almost 1/1 ripped of a texture pack i used in minecraft. 

There are so many Minecraft clones out there so you decided to make another one ? 

Because textures are only slightly different. Gameplay is almost the same and the fact that its free doesn't make it better.


Buy Minecraft. On HRK its 1,34€. You get all mods and modpacks aviable for minecraft (Which are way more than for these minecraft clones). You get regular updates and compatible texture packs and a multiplayer with thousands of players on each of the million servers. (Yes, that was a hyperbole.)

Because my antivirus detects it as a virus

Can you tell me what anti virus program you're using?

Avast

Thank you. Avast is a very good anti virus program, but in that case it is a false alert. I'm the dev of Stonecraft and promise you there is no virus in Stonecraft. You can add a programm exception in Avast.

(-1)

Is virus

Stonecraft is not a virus or malware. Why do you think so?

My anti-virus deleted it. It rarely does it.

Hm...ok. But Stonecraft has  > 9.600 Downloads. And I read for the first time of it. And if Stonecraft was a virus Itch.io would have already erased it and banned my account. Be sure, it is not a virus. A virus program can be wrong.

ok well now it is saying its safe but it requires a password to change my computer

(-1)

Instantly got deleted because I have an anti-virus program on my computer.

Well, it is not a virus. It is a game and if you have itch right now and it is not deleted then, your antivirus is bad and you are just lying. :P

(-1)

The reason it was deleted was because it was a .exe file rather than a .zip file, like all the other itch.io games. most viruses are a .exe file so I'm happy that it deleted it.

Strange anti-virus program. Is it deleting all .exe files downloaded from the web? And only because you put an .exe file in a .zip file (like most itch games), it won't be more secure.

(-1)

It does not delete all .exe files, but it deleted this one. It isn't a cheap anti-virus program, but it really helps. Every time something is downloaded it says if it is safe or not. Usually it will just say it isn't safe, not delete it completely. It either is a virus and they are saying it isn't, or they didn't put too much work into the game. If it was in a .zip file it probably would still delete it. This game most likely has a virus in it.

(-1)

No

?

Hello LarryTheLlama, thank you for your detailed comment :D.

Great I love the new update! Keep up the great work and I assure you that this game will thrive thorougly! :D

(Edited 1 time)

@MrCerealGuy: I did find quite an unusual bug. When you want to use the "sneak" button, it just teleports me 20 blocks up the there (and more). I did change the keys for it; Originally, it was L-CTRL but, I switched it to L-SHIFT instead. Is there anyway you can fix that? :3


Comments for StoneCraft: It is a wonderful game; I would rate it more then its potential. The game is very easy to use and does well to visualize Minecraft. It also does provide and support different mods that can alter the game's performance and abilities in-game. Thank you for contributing your hardwork and effort to making this game into a stabilized formatting! We all appreciate it, especially me! :D 

~Blu

Hello BluA57, thank you for your feedback. I got the same bug :D, it will be fixed in 1.2.1a.

this happens with my ctrl left

(+1)

Great! I will be looking forward to in its advances. One question: By any chance, do you in an estimated time that update 1.21.1a will be launched in that game?

(+1)

Today :D

Bit dissapoint that its laggier than Minecraft itself its way more laggy but is a good idea maybe use java eventually and then it will work better then Minecraft.. hopefully

(+1)

Hello xXLinkster17Xx, thank you for your feedback. Stonecraft is a bit laggy, but consider that Stonecraft is still in development (alpha) and not a finished game like Minecraft.

To make it better then minecraft add vehicles please (cough* Fords cough*)

I'm bored I own Minecraft Premium and I wanna see if this can run on my Laptop that Can run Actual Minecraft If not Very Dissapointed

(+1)

how about you support mojang by buying minecraft?

Hello barric, I have bought Minecraft. It's a great game and inspired me to make Stonecraft in my free time.

world is not generating problems wut evr i do and every mob and skin is white !!!

Cool Update...WUT I HAVE TO DO ?! O_o

Strange, I don't have these bugs. Are there errors in the debug.txt file? You can copy it via pastebin.com.

acctualy they stoped even if i didnt try again to make a survival....I supose these errors stoped

(+1)

u can't just send a online update to the users that using the game and let it update? Like steam?

Now with skins! Download the new version 1.2.0-alpha!

the minimap has changed a bit

i have to delete my old coppy and istall this one or is instant upgrade?

You can install the new version over your old version.

Bad timing..I just installed new update and delete previous

(Edited 1 time)

Woooppsss!!! I guess when i installed it it just updated my old game NICE

Fo next versions better be carefull with the not so simple mobs

BECAUSE IT IS A DRAGON RAMPAGE ! All the other mobs spawn great axcept : The Phenix Dragon of Fir ethat is like hunting u !!! Cmon ! I cant set home or make a survival video without going creative andgive myself a night swoord

Yeah you're right, Phoenix and Moonheron etc are actually very hard, they make me crazy :D. I promise to make better game balancing in further releases.

ok thanks !

It tells me I ran out of Lua memory does anyone know where I can go to change the Lua memory setting.

Hello Brand7625, have you downloaded the actual version? No, there is no Lua memory setting. Can you post me your debug.txt via https://pastebin.com/?

How would I know if I downloaded the actual version?

Do a right-click on stonecraft.exe, go to the details. The file version should be 1.1.9.0.

Mine says 1.2.0. What do I do?

I know i already said that 10001 times but now :

In the next versions pls if u can just make a server maker . U know turn your maps into servers 

not much just 20 players

(Edited 1 time)

Well just to help this question, making a server is not so easy but if you really want to make server, it will take alot of effort and time to make one successfully. If you want, type in Google on how to make a server in StoneCraft. All though, since StoneCraft is powered by Minetest in a way, type in Google how to make a server in Minetest. If you make a server correctly, you should go to the serverlist in StoneCraft and check to see if your server pops up. Hope this helps! :)

When I load a "new" map the screen is grey and then it just goes back to the menu or it crashes. What do I do?

SIR HOW DO YOU CHANGE SKINS!

Hello Miner Shinekaranashi, in the upcoming version 1.2.0a you'll be able to change your skin!

What program did you use to create the setup?

Hello Anadeia, I'm using InstallForge. It's free and very easy to use.

Video from GameFrame

This is GREAT! However, I don't understand how to stack items. Can you help me?

Hello SkittlesCat, thank you for your feedback! I hope this will help you: Dropping/Stacking items
