First I feel like i should state that I love the update and i congratulate 4J on the job well done, BUT so far the only thing that seems a bit off, other than the water/lava buckets, is the normal flying speed. It feels like you're going at the same speed you'd go while crouching which is fine (i mean come on we're finally able to fly) but it just seems a tad too slow(tried every button to check if i might have pressed the "slow" button but to no avail) especially when you're trying to place multiple blocks in rapid succession in no particular order, such as when starting to build a floating island or something of that nature.

Anyone else slightly miffed about this or am I the only one so far? xD

EDIT: yes, i do know you can go super fast tapping the Left stick forward twice in quick succession... which of course isn't really practical for building, just for moving around the map.

Did you double tap forward on the joystiq?

was surprised at the speed of flying not to much of an issue for me so far, more hacked off about the buckets.

The flying speed in creative is set so that you can place blocks in rapid succession without missing one, if you move much faster sometimes you can miss placing a block.

I did notice this, so the flying speed was not a big issue since block placing while flying is very very easy. Started my Sky city so definitely noticeable on the flying speed and block placing.

Any faster and you would miss way too much and become clumsy.

I like how it works. It's a lot more controllable than the PC version. If only sprinting isn't a pain to do at times.

Seriously. These "Achievement Get!" signatures were never funny, or interesting.

If you wish to fly faster, sprint while flying, you go SO dang fast!
