Have you ever been playing with your friends, and thought to yourself, "Man, my life would be so much better if I just had their sword?" For those of you with aspirations of grand theft, this plugin is right up your alley!

Sethbling brings us a plugin for bukkit servers that lets you attempt to steal your friends' (or enemies') loot, right out of their inventory! Aside from the obvious trolling applications, this could also be the basis for a really clever game of keep-away, a server with spies, and so much more. Check it out!

You can download this plugin right here.

Shooting blocks - normally a pastime reserved for those with a bow and arrows - now comes in an arcade game form, courtesy of MrZeffoes! So, what is the game?

First, a large field of blocks is populated on the game board. Then randomly colored blocks are generated for you to shoot at the block field - navigate the block you want to fire left or right, then shoot it up at the block field. Make contact with a like-colored block, and they disappear, forever destroyed! Points are awarded for the number of blocks destroyed in a single shot, and add up over time. Think you can get a high score?

This map features over twenty-five thousand command blocks. I don't even.

NOTE: This map currently requires 14w08a (or higher) to play correctly!

JUST GIMME THE DOWNLOAD LINK!

Once again, the majority of the time between this and the last snapshot has been spent on Plugin API related tasks (most notably inventory rewrite, block model format and block state concepting), and as such, this is mostly a bugfix & mapmaker snapshot. Don’t worry, we have some cool survival plans soon!

This snapshot also has the (hopefully-)final step towards supporting name changes in Minecraft. All server files that are intended to refer to players will be automatically changed to go by UUIDs, and you do not need to do anything. However, this does mean that any third party tool will not work on these files, and will need to be updated to work with them.

Though names changes are technically supported in this snapshot, they will not be available until after 1.8 releases when we will be confident that the majority of active servers have updated to support UUIDs. Mojang will release a Minecraft 1.7.6 version soon, to backport these UUID changes for normal servers.

Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, Mojang can’t fix it!

MAPMAKER CHANGES:
  • Fixed stat.useItem for many items
  • Fixed bounding boxes of item frames and paintings, they can’t overlap anymore

  • Testing for scores now also works in @e entity selectors
  • Fixed potential “infinite” recursion issue with the blockdata command in commandblocks
  • New stat.timeSinceDeath
  • Added scoreboard team property to disable death messages
  • Command /scoreboard players can now filter by NBT data
  • Players in creative mode can now damage entities even if they are flagged invulnerable
  • Improved position handling of item frames and paintings
  • Minor tweaks to the /clone command to make it more reliable

BUGFIXES:
  • [Bug MC-2053] – Inconsistent door texture
  • [Bug MC-3450] – While lying in bed nearby mobs will look above the player
  • [Bug MC-11681] – Players' nameplates are too low while sleeping in beds

SxSW said:

Mojang’s Director of Fun, Lydia Winters, will be your guide as you explore how the world is using Minecraft. Did you know it has been featured in world renown museums? That some Minecraft parodies have more views than the original songs? That players in Japan do speed runs to the End? That UN Habitat collaborates on a program with Mojang? That the world can feel smaller when you’re playing Minecraft? Enjoy a fun and interactive session on how Minecraft is taking over the world.

The World of Minecraft is open to the public with free Guest Pass wristbands, available in advance or on-site at the event. Guestpass.sxsw.com for more information.
