Um, one thing about the ladder update, it largely makes trapdoors useless. As well as making a ladder up into the middle of a slab floor, it almost forces ladders to only go up the major walls of structures, and if you have a slab floor or roof, you need to either cut a notch into the roof or a full block, ruining the overall look of a structure.
If you insist on removing the collision box from ladders, please consider allowing players to hop up from the top of a ladder 1/2 block to get on top of slabs and trapdoors.
The new ladders will break a lot of custom adventure maps, too. I'm in the middle of building one and now there's a bunch of work I need to redo.
Personally I really like the new update.
But one thing I dont like is what they did to the ladders. I'm pretty sure you know what I'm talking about.
One thing would to see added is when Mob Eggs are fired from dispensers they hatch. This would do a lot to help adventure maps feel better and make them more awesome.
I realy like the blend between biomes to make them look smoother as well.

I AM AUSTRALIAN. And I'm proud of it. I also like slimes. ALOT.
Is there any way I can get 1.0? I upgraded to 1.1, but my friends server is 1.0. Anyone know how to downgrade?
I had the same problem, there is a simple (but illegal) solution, you can find a Minecraft 1.0 .jar file download and place it into: %appdata%/.minecraft/.bin
if you replace to Minecraft.jar thats already in there, it should downgrade the version. :smile.gif:
And for all those people complaining about the update, just remember; We asked for more varied terrain gen - Jeb made the terrain more varied. It may not be how we want it yet but he was listening. We wanted beaches back, and now beaches are back. Again they may not be how we want them but Jeb has been listening. We wanted sheep to regrow their wool, and now they do. Jeb was listening again. So for all you hater and complainers. It is clear that Jeb is listening to the community, but not everything can be changed instantly; it takes time.
I think the sheep regrowing wool is a great idea (but personally I think it grows back a bit to fast, I was constantly shearing about 5 sheep over and over again non-stop it makes wool a bit less amazing), it's awesome that you can apparently get apples from leaves now although I haven't got any yet and I'm glad beaches are back.
But seriously, WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO THE LADDERS?!?!?!
it's ruined soooo many custom maps, (including a few I was working on) I don't even see what the problem was with them.
accept for the ladders I liked all the updates
EDIT: Okay, I just got my first apple then :biggrin.gif:
I'm really liking the new 1.1 update. However I have one issue and I've searched for it all over.
I'm annoyed that the server side download has disabled local stats. I'm sure if you're hosting or running through mineos or something you are able to see it easily but for those of us who are running a server off a private box we own with our friends I'm not seeing the stats.
Is there a way to enable them? Is this just a fluke that I'm experiencing? (I've downloaded twice and restarted the machine numerous times with no success) Was this a planned exit for the server side download?
Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.
Favorite feature? Ahh.. it has to be the ability to generate flat maps and such now. I also tested the language selector, not flawless, but it does a great job! :biggrin.gif:

I AM NOT YOUR PERSONAL MINECRAFT MOD SUPPORT AGENT, SO PLEASE DO NOT PM ME ABOUT PROBLEMATIC MODS THAT ARE NOT MINE. If you're having trouble/crashes with a mod, you'll have better luck resolving it in this forum section than PMing me. If you already made a topic, be patient about responses. If you have troubles with anything non-Minecraft related on your PC, I might be able to help, though, but no promises. Even though I could wish to be, I'm not a wizard.
I like the pirate speak...and that's about it. These updates seem more like lip service. Dancing around the updates people would like to see implemented. I've already down graded just so my choice mods still work. I don't think this update is worth loosing them. I would rather wait 3 or 4 months for a real update than these little nothing updates constantly. If you like the small changes and fixes that's great =] Not me though I'm not impressed at all.
