No Snapshot for You - On the Other Hand...

This week, Mojang developer Jens "Jeb" Bergensten is on vacation!  Unfortunately, this means that there will be no Snapshot this week.  However, there is a silver lining: Programmer and man-about-town Nathan "Dinnerbone" Adams revealed that the 1.4 update would likely be out before Halloween (October 31st)!  Witches, Withers, and bats - all in time for the spooky season.

I personally plan on wandering around with a skeleton head.  Whether in-game or out, I won't say.


MCX360 Updates - Goodies, Future Patches

MCX360 is seeing a medley of goodies on the horizon.  The future 1.8.2 update in particular has a lot in store - new monsters, ravines, Strongholds, and so much more - perhaps most poignant is the addition of Creative mode!  While the release date has not yet been established, it is expected to be reviewed - and ultimately released - in the very near future, with CERT submission happening some time in the next week or so.  Want to see some of these exciting changes in action?  Mojang has a massive list of preview videos for your viewing pleasure - check them out by clicking here!

In the meantime, a whole pile of Minecraft goodies is available for your XBLA avatars!  If you haven't had a chance to check them out, now is a great time - click the picture below for some screenshots!

MineTV - "Railcraft" creator, CovertJaguar

Posted Image


This week's MineTV has a very exciting guest: the creator of the popular Railcraft mod, CovertJaguar!  As with last week's episode, spaces in the stands will be on a first-come-first-serve basis - details are below!

  • When: Today (Wednesday, September 26th) at 7:00 (19:00) EST
    You can check time conversions by clicking here

  • Where:  We will be streaming at the official MineTV channel, which is right here
    We will let people know how to gain entry to the studio audience a bit before we go live, so be sure to arrive early if you want entry!

  • Who:  Railcraft creator, CovertJaguar!

Not familiar with the sheer awesome of Railcraft?  Wondering exactly what it adds to the game?  It could easily be summarized by saying it has a massive list of rail types, crafting options, tools, blocks, and more, but the description alone really doesn't do this incredible mod justice.  So, check out the Railcraft thread, try the mod out for yourself, and see why thousands of gamers are hooked on Railcraft!

Just a word of caution - make sure you understand high-speed rails before attempting to use them!

I am pretty scared it seems like the mod API will be delayed to another future version.

It does seem like the Mod API is just being pushed further and further back :/

Yeah, it has been pretty quiet (scarily quiet) on the Mod API front for a while now hasn't it? Reminds me of last year and again the year before that. Oh well; at least this time I actually do have some confidence that something will come out eventually, even if not anywhere near another predicted time frame. Posted Image

Right now though my secret hope of hopes is that Jeb (who has been very quiet himself for a long time now) is secretly working on a covert Occulus Rift update for Minecraft like notch asked him to!! Posted Image I want to spin up Minecraft on my Occulus Dev Kit the minute I open the package this December! Posted Image

It doesn't phase me if Mod API gets delayed, end of the day I would rather wait for a complete release than a broken one, imagine how many people will rage on forums if API came out riddled and full of bugs and crashes? ye.. not nice.

If they were to release a snapshot, their won't be anything new because they have already said they think they have added everything they wanted for this update so if anything it would of just been a bug fix.

I really think it is about time Mojang gave Jeb some much needed backup instead of trying to pretend their whole company doesn't exist and that they should invest so little money helping him out to improve the game!

Hell, again? But Jeb is always away? And obviously, we can't see the modding API again... I waited it on 1.3, but delayed. I'm waiting it in 1.4, but probably it will be delayed... I'll hope on 1.5 now Posted Image .

They seem to always miss a week (most of the time) for 1.4. Also the release date has been on the wiki for a while now, but I guess you don't care. Seriously, if they do not release the Modding API in 1.4 I will be pretty much screaming my head off (no I won't). It would be cool if there was a command that sent you to the nether, but only if you were op. Or even better there could be a mod command where you get more commands and things than ops, like ops can do basic, tp, help, etc, but mods can do every command. So only mods can use nether command as mods are more trustworthy, plus using the nether command can lag you a lot!

I don't get why Dinnerbone can't upload the snapshot this week, even if it is only a reworked lighting engine, I would be happy with that.
