Got bored so I made an Air ship in the Aether as my main base. I wish the beds weren't still bugged though. |:

I doubt it will change already generated chunks.

Can anybody explain the significance of that to me? I... don't really get it. ._.

 

Also, what's that red speckled thing? Like a giant mushroom or something?

Vanilla Minecraft could never make rivers. This picture says that Notch is working with making rivers possible...which is very nice, seeing you're basically in Minnesota: Land of 10,000 Lakes. :roll:

 

And yes, that giant red thing is a giant mushroom.

Haha, wow. I have never noticed that. And yeah, I definitely thought there was something different about the picture, I just couldn't quite place what it was. If Notch gets them working it'll put some of the currently lauded seeds to shame.

Established a singleplayer world. It's a large archipelago with a Millenaire military village on a smaller island. I decided to build on a large island that has what looks to be the inactive caldera of a volcano. I have roofed the caldera and will be building a large pavillion inside the hollow (large centerpiece, maybe an orrerary, pillars, and rooms if I can). On top will be a large castle (irregular shaped).

Info on the next update.

 

[hide]

f you haven't tried Minecraft, it probably doesn't make sense to you why its players get so excited over every update. But if you're one of the initiated (and you probably are if you're reading this), then you're probably like me -- you just can't hear about it enough. I saw an early version of the next update (and got a walkthrough from Minecraft majordomo Markus "Notch" Persson, below), and you have plenty to look forward to when it releases sometime in the very near future.

 

Bows Get Mighty

 

Instead of bows that limply toss arrows a few feet, players will now be able to draw back arrows longer, firing farther and with great effect. Holding arrows will make you move slower, but make the bow an effective first-person weapon great for taking out the even tougher new enemies.

 

Experience Orbs, Creative Mode and Enderman

 

Poison and Night Terrors

 

Spiders are already a nuisance in the world of Minecraft, but now they poison their prey. The resulting moments of panic as you watch your life tick away even after their death are sure to make exploring all the more treacherous.

 

Also appearing are the Endermen, a new monster that will attack you if you look directly at it. You can try to run if you want, but it will teleport to your location repeatedly. They are apparently vulnerable to water, though, so find a pool to run into if you incur their wrath.

 

Lastly, players will soon be battling Silverfish. These monsters lurk inside the very blocks that players mine, making each swing of a pickaxe a potentially violent affair.

 

Quests, NPCs and Experience

 

No quests or NPCs were on display in the PAX demo, but representatives from developer Mojang said that NPCs will be added in the update. Players will then obtain quests from these NPCs. No details are available as to the nature of those quests, but it should give players more to do than build yet another effigy to whatever nerd god they worship.

 

Killing monsters and other creatures will yield experience, giving players skill points. How skill points will be spent is still being decided, but Mojang has decided that experience will be lost if the player dies. The goal is to make death even more costly, making survival all the more precious.

 

Eat to Live

 

Currently food is used in Minecraft to instantly gain health, but now food is necessary to exist. A hunger meter is being added, and the only way to gain health is to max out your meter. This means there's no more button mashing the food key at the last minute in a heated battle, as consuming takes time, with health regeneration taking even longer.

 

The team at Mojang have many holes to fill in the upcoming update, but they're also considering rolling out the changes incrementally. Are you guys ready for survival to get just a bit harder?

Hunger now? Sounds lame, only addition that I am not really pleased about...


My relaxation method involves a bottle of lotion, beautiful women, and partial nudity. Yes I get massages.

That new update sounds awesome, I might start playing again when it's released.

 

But 2 weeks in Notch time might be a long time.

So ready for this update to come out, makes the game seem so much closer to being completed. Also just got SPC after beginning a semester-long RS hiatus, so I've been playing a lot of MineCraft lately.

 

When the update drops I'll be making a bunch of new worlds for sure.

Whenever that tip.it server comes back online I would be very interested in joining.

The only additions I'm not sure about are quests and experience. Minecraft is not an RPG.

It'll give us something to do. And as it said, exp resets itself when you die so it can't be THAT important.

 

Not like, "Need 99 mining to mine Diamond" fuuu-

I honestly hope Notch doesn't stray too far away from the simplicity of the game.
