All the hints in order

Tutorial hints show up when you start a world in Survival for the first time. They are meant to guide newer players who may not know the controls.

The stage of the tutorial is stored in the options.txt file, called tutorialStep. The list of hints are: movement, find_tree, punch_tree, open_inventory, craft_planks, and none.

Interface[edit | edit source]

When a Survival world is generated for the first time on a device, the the first tutorial hint will show. Each tutorial hint shows up in the top right of the screen. It consists of the hint title, a description of how to complete the hint, and an image describing that hint. Once the tutorial hint has been completed, for example, when the player mines a piece of wood, that tutorial hint will disappear. If it is the "craft wooden planks" hint, no tutorial hint will ever show in any world again, and if it is any other hint, the next tutorial hint will be shown.

Tutorial hints are obtained by simply completing the task that is needed to complete the hint. Each hint, minus the "Open your inventory" and the "Craft wooden planks" hint, have a progress bar that shows the current advancements of the current step, which fills up as the tutorial hint is being completed. For example, for the "Destroy the tree" hint, the progress bar will be empty, and it will start to fill up as the player punches wood, so that it completely fills up and disappears when the wood is destroyed.
