Minecraft 1.4 updates and shiz yo

Post by Chu on Sat Sep 08, 2012 12:54 am

This is probably one of the better updates Minecraft will be getting

Modding/Code:
Spoiler:

F3+P will toggle the auto-pause when the window loses focus
F3+H will toggle detailed item descriptions
Fire spread will be affected by the difficulty.[1]
Modding API.[2][3][4]
Will be called "plugins".[5]
Rewriting Lighting engine.[6] Current engine has some bugs. (See Bug Fixes below.) ABOUT BLOODY TIME

Commands:

Spoiler:
Added a Command Block that that can run server commands when triggered by redstone, intended for adventure maps. This is amazing, and will probably be abused but too bad
No crafting recipe, only obtainable through /give[7][8]
Use @p to address the nearest player, @a for all players (where applicable) and @r for a random player[9][10][11]
Only OPs can create it in multiplayer if there isn't already one in the game.
Will operate in silent mode so it doesn't display commands in the chat window.[12]
Added a few commands for use with the redstone command block
/difficulty to change game difficulty[13]
/difficulty 0 = peaceful
/difficulty 1 = easy
/difficulty 2 = normal
/difficulty 3 = hard
Toggling PvP[14]
/spawnpoint to change spawnpoint per player (not the actual spawnpoint but more like an invisible bed)
/spawnpoint <player> <x> <y> <z>
/gamerule <gamerule> <true/false>
/gamerule doFireTick to change if the fire should spread
/gamerule doMobLoot to change if mobs should drop items
/gamerule doMobSpawning to change if mobs should naturally spawn
/gamerule doTileDrops to change if blocks should have drops (does not work for paintings)
/gamerule keepInventory to change if you should keep your items in your inventory if you die.
/gamerule mobGriefing to change if creepers and endermen should be able to change blocks.
/weather [clear | rain | thunder] <time> to change the weather
/help command improved

There are no restrictions, any entity at all can travel through the portals.[20]
Will allow fire burning entities like blazes to leave the nether and potentially burn things.[21]

Improved villages and villagers to make them more self-aware[26]
You can now restore a desolate village or create a completely new village[27]

Added a "Work in progress" block. (AKA Beacon Block)
Can be right-clicked to reveal a GUI
Glows as bright as glowstone and casts a white light into the sky when on an assembled pyramid.
a 3x3 platform out of iron, gold, diamond and/or emerald blocks is the minimum size
additional layers with increasing size under that increase the reach of the effects
Each layer unlocks a new level of effects and increases the block's range by 8 blocks
You do not have to use only one block type for the pyramid, images have been released by members of the community showing multiple materials in one layer.
The minimum range is 16 blocks
Players within the blocks' range will be given the selected effects every 4 seconds
Changing a block's selection costs 1 emerald, diamond, gold ingot or iron ingot
The best configuration of blocks requires 164 blocks
Each block can only apply one effect at a time. If there are 4 complete layers of blocks, players can additionally choose between Regeneration or tier II of the previously chosen effect
Unlocked effects for each layer of blocks:
1: Speed and Haste
2: Resistance and Jump Boost
3: Strength
4: Regeneration and tier II of the other chosen effect

Spoiler:

Some things sound nice, but in all I'm not really liking this update. Just my thought on it, though.

They added anvils now, which you can name, repair, and do some other things with items now.

Also witches, if that wasn't in the update log, those things are hard as hell to kill ;-; I played the latest snapshot on my friend's server, wasn't fun
