    posted a message on Beta 1.6 Discoveries, Bugs & Discussion!
    This doesn't seem to be commented on much, but it's a huge problem which will render the game completely unplayable for some:

    - Chunks don't seem to load correctly, if at all in some cases. It looks to be connected with the server having to generate brand new chunks in either an existing server or a new map. Old chunks load, but much slower than before (1.5_01), and at times, old chunks don't load at all. the problem seems worse with brand new chunks though. Disconnecting/reconnecting several times in a row seems to encourage chunks to load properly, but only up to a point (until you reach the dreaded cliff of infinite falling death).

    Just to confirm, there's a bug where if you have a full inventory and you attempt to shift-click something from a chest into it, the client will crash to the dirt-block screen. Seems to happen the other way around - if you have a full chest and attempt to shift-click another item into it the client will also crash.

    I am a noob to Minecraft I must say incase you think I am a retard, but are the updates free on Beta? i read somewhere that if you had Alpha all the updates are free but if you had Beta youbuy them?sorry if this is the wrong place to post :L but it's sort of about the update LOL

    Alpha = purely building, no updates, free.
    Beta = building, survival single player/survival multiplayer, updates, paid for (once).

    Bugs:

    - Tools that have been newly created will despawn after one use if you drop them (or die) and pick them up again.

    - Chunks load very slowly when several unique maps are loaded in your quickbar. Removing maps from quickbar allows chunks to load faster/more normally.

    - Stair-running is now very bumpy.


    Possible updates:

    - Hatches could attach to the top of the target block, and open down, allowing the player to walk over them.

    - Maps could draw the layout of the land relative to the crafting/creation of the map. As it stands, it looks like maps generate the layout of the land relative to the first creation of chunks, or the first server load(?).

    - Right clicking a map could zoom in a level, increasing the detail by 2 or 4. Right clicking again could return the map to normal view.

    - Grass/ferns could spread/respawn slowly. This would allow people running long-standing servers/maps the chance to see grass/ferns affect their local landscape, instead of travelling thousands of blocks out just to harvest/see the new feature.
