Minecraft Weekly News

This weeks "Minecraft News" takes a close look at Notch's upcoming new game, "0x10c"; we also touch on the recent release of the official line of Minecraft LEGO products, this week's AMA (more on that in a moment), Minecon 2012 and the secret Snapshot 12w15a update details!

Pocket Edition Update Soon

It is about time for another Pocket Edition Update!  The portable Minecraft port can expect more advances in tools, creatures and survival mechanics - one step closer to perfection.  Have you built something truly awesome in Minecraft: Pocket Edition?  If so, show us here!

Pocket Edition has spent some time slowly becoming more and more like the Survival mode we know and love on the PC version.  While it has been said that MCPE will never be exactly like the PC version, the addition of Survival elements and more robust Creative controls is a welcome addition.  Keep an eye out as we track the exact changes to the upcoming update - if you just can't get enough portable building action, you won't want to miss out on the new info!

Of note on the PC version, the Mod API will be getting some particular focus very soon.  How soon?  We won't say, precisely - not just yet.

Ask Jon Anything - Users Ask Much of Mojang's AI Guru

Jon Kågström - the man responsible for many incredible AI changes in Minecraft, among others - had his AMA session today!  Jon answered a host of questions about the game; the future of group-based monster intelligence, how the upcoming Mod API might be used with mob interaction in mods, possible trading with villagers, and so much more.  If you have never heard about what Jon does for Mojang, now is a great opportunity to see him talk about his work first-hand, and believe me, you don't want to miss out.  Check out Jon's AMA by clicking this link!

Mojang Moving Into New Office Soon

Mojang has been pining for a new office for some time now, and they finally have a "ready" date for it - June 1st!  Mojang's Carl Manneh spoke briefly on the topic, noting that the ceiling is green.

One has to wonder if it is creeper green.  Why would it be anything else?

While the office will be ready for move-in by June 1st, Mojang will likely not relocate to the new building until a week or more after this date.  Anyone who has ever tried to relocate an entire office can easily tell you why:  all of the excitement of packing up and moving from home, but with tons more stuff.  Usually much heavier stuff, too.  Nonetheless, the new location looks fancy - we will update you with new pictures as they become available.

Scrolls to Alpha Stage Soon

Have you been anxiously awaiting the upcoming CCGI-alike, "Scrolls"?  Itching for some card-combat action?  It won't be long before you can see it first-hand:  the Scrolls Alpha is coming soon!  Mojang has been playtesting Scrolls quite a bit lately, even having in-house tournaments every week.  It won't be long before players will be able to do the same, so keep an ear to the ground!

But what if we hate it? Can't it be an option instead?

Could someone please ask Mojang if they could host an AMA where Aussies could post questions during their regular daytime hours?  The AMA sessions listed are in the middle of the night for me, and I don't fancy getting up at 3AM and plugging the computer in just to post some AMA questions!

Even if they just allow Aussies to post AMA questions into a thread on reddit designated for Aussie questions and Mojang will answer when it's convenient for them, that would be better than not being able to get any answer at all!  [img]http://static.minecraftforum.net//public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png[/img]

Great news about the MCPE update. I got the game when it first came out, so I'm really excited to see what's new. I know everyone is begging for crafting and new mobs, but I think even the ability to change the difficulty (ex. Hard, Normal, Easy, Peaceful) would be a great step. Ultimately, infinite world generation would be epic too. :)

Oh and there's some bugs I found recently. When you place fence aong the edge of the world, it will try to connect to it as if it were another block. Also, if you place more than about 50 blocks of fence at one time, the fence will turn transparent (can only be fixed by removing the transparent fence and restarting the game).

From the video: "Zero times ten to the c."

Ha, if you're going to pronounce it literally, use "Zero ex ten cee."
It's hexadecimal, not some odd multiplication expression.
