How to build a lake or pool

I don’t have any finished worlds yet, so here’s another Survivalcraft tip! Today we are going to learn how to build a lake or pool.

Start by digging or blowing a hole you want to fill with water. Cover the top of the hole with ice.

When you finish covering the entire hole with ice, break the ice. It turns into water.

What does the clock say?

What does the clock say?

Today I’m going to explain the clock I created in my Survivalcraft world Newville.

As you can see there are two numbers. One is what I’m going to call the “hour”, and the next one I’m going to call the “minute”. There are 16 “hours” in one day, and 16 “minutes” in one hour. Each number is a hexadecimal: 0123456789ABCDEF. 00 is midnight, 40 is sunrise, 80 is noon, and C0 is sunset.

The type of time on one digital display depends on which direction you connect the real-time clock to the display. For example, connect the side with three dots to the display, and you get 1/16 a day.

Large Screen?

If you have a large screen, and the controls are not very easy to use, try enabling Split Touch in the Controls menu of the Settings. Split touch lets you place or break blocks with a crosshair instead of your finger, so you only have to tap the look pad to place/break the block.

No Dropbox?

You do not need a Dropbox account in order to get worlds and textures of the Survivalcraft forums. Just simply find the world/texture you want, click its download link, then while on the download page, copy the download URL from the download button. Then open Survivalcraft and press Get Content, then From URL. Copy and paste and your world will be downloaded.
