I’m looking forward to the new MC update out soon 1,5 has a ton of cool stuff i want to try out such as new redstone and minecart features :D

I’m hoping it isn’t too much of a change programming wise – as i don’t fancy the bukkit update XD it usually makes my week a busy one trying to update to the new version.

I’m in two minds about the texture pack split as well – the new version will have the files for each block or item separate rather than on one big sheet – i suppose this will enable you to see the margins better and move about individual files – plus you can see what he file actually is rather than having to work it out on the unnamed big sheet of textures. But then again it will make copy certain bits of textures about a bit of a nuisance….

Changes for the better though i think :)

 

Look whats coming:

  • Added Redstone Comparator (used in Redstone logic)
  • Added Hopper (collects items and moves them to containers)

  • Added Nether Brick (item)
  • Added Nether Quartz and ore
  • Added Block of Quartz, with half blocks and chiseled variants
  • New command: /scoreboard
  • New command: /effect
  • Containers and mobs can have custom names
  • Inventory management has been changed, for example you can drag-place items over slots
  • Texture packs now have separate images for each block and item, and can have animations
  • Nether Quartz Ore now spawns in the Nether
