Hello everyone, and welcome to another edition of Minecraft weekly. This week there wasn’t a whole lot of news for Minecraft, but there was a few good ones.
MINECON REGISTRATION OPEN
Well, kind of. The registration opened up earlier this week, and as I look at it now, all of the tickets have been sold out. Sold out kind of fast didn’t it? Anyways, If you’re keen on going, I would check back every once in a while, as Mojang might release some more tickets.
NEW SNAPSHOT RELEASED
Mojang’s releasesd an additional snapshot this week with some fixes and updates to the previous one.
Quoted from Minecraftforum.net:
- Tweaks to the Wither
He continues to be refined – this time, with a bit of nasty self-defense
- Carrots are now carrot, and added new food item
- Tweaks to a couple of item sprites
Specifically, Bread, Raw Chicken, Cooked Chicken, Raw Beef, Steak, Raw Porkchop, Cooked Porkchop, Red Apple, and Nether Star no longer have a dark outline. Golden Carrot now matches the carrot, and heads are centered properly.
- Leather armor now has a non-dyed layer
- Superflat customization options
Comes with 7 presets: Classic Flat, Tunnelers’ Dream, Water World, Overworld, Snowy Kingdom, Bottomless Pit, and Desert. Also, Custom starts off with Classic Flat with three options: Add Layer, Edit Layer, Remove Layer. Adding and editing are NYI.
- Pigs are now able to jump when players ride on them
- Added /clear command to empty the inventory
- Evil mobs are now a little bit more fearless in hard difficulty
- Various bug fixes
It’s nice to see that Mojang still keeps on updating Minecraft weekly, ready to appeal to the ever-growing fanbase. There’s a game company to admire.
Sadly, that’s all. There really wasn’t a whole lot of information this week about Minecraft. Hopefully next week will be better.
