Minecraft / Minecraft 1.8
« Last post by gumstitch on April 20, 2014, 07:37:17 PM »
Holy shitballs, just read up on the changelog for 1.8 which is due soon.

It all sounds pretty awesome, but something that will relate directly to our server is minecarts being sped up and powered minecarts being faster. So we may not need to waste quite so much gold on powered rails. Plus iv'e always enjoyed watching powered minecarts pushing trains along. they'll be more effecient now.

Also mobs will run away from exploding creepers....interesting.

Better mob AI and pathfinding. Oh dear.

Anyways, have a read: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/1.8

What are the red blocks in the centres of your spires? And is that Casa de Lanky in the bottom picture of the previous post?

Thankyou!

Getting diagonal things to look good is a challenge in this game.

Today's goal is to finish the spires. Then, on to other projects around the castle.

That is truly beautiful. That's some of the nicest Minecraft work I've seen. Your fountains reminded me of my own waterwork on the pillars at the temple. I really like the diagonal accents in your construction.

It seems like that biome is an approximation of the poles. It says that no trees spawn there.

I also had forgotten that the world height is now doubled from what it was when I left. 256 blocks high, right?

Grass is very telling of the biome type.
It's shade changes depending on the biome.

Grasslands will be a pale green, swamp is a dark green, forest/field is normal green, desert grass looks very dry,  jungle is very strong deep green, savanna grass is a dark yellow-y green.

There are well over a dozen different biomes now, but not all support grass.
One i'm hopeing we find is the ice plains with spikes. extremely rare, even on newly-seeded worlds.
