Sweet, this update has been long awaited for me.
Enjoy raiding and pvp in highly customizable and well organized groups, but hate the setup of Factions? Then check out my upcoming server containing multiple custom plugins: http://www.RisingColonies.com/

It's a post where I put up a full changelog of the latest snapshot and link to other reviews and the Minecraft + Mojang News and "Snapshot ___ is Released!" posts in it. http://www.minecraft.../#entry20508483 If you read this, thanks, and keep up the awesome Minecraft News Updates!

Cool, but I can't wait to Redstone update, but that was very awesome features about scoreboard, even unused smooth slabs and more! Just keep it up and make it more lucky features, Mojang! :D

It has come to my attention that Jeb has crossed the line with the bone meal nerf. He was doing so good. What happened? I THINK IT'S BECAUSE HE'S TURNING THE DAMN GAME INTO A FREAKING MOD-PACK. MY FRIENDS AGREE WITH THIS STATEMENT.

Awesome! Now, thanks to renaming command blocks, I can remake the 'The Herobrine' server a whole lot better!



Posted 24 January 2013 - 08:57 PM

I for one endorse the bone meal nerf. I felt that once I killed a single Skeleton, I was set for food. Now, I will have to work twice or seven times as hard. Nerfing bone meal was a good move Jeb_. Keep it up!


Feel free to help out my dragon! Keep views to a minimum please!

Hey um I love minecraft one of the First people to Even get it. But there is a couple things i'd like you guys to Consider on Putting in MineCraft A Block Dispenser, A Redstone Transmitter and Receiver to were its like Wireless Redstone sending, Guns, A InGameButton that lets you see all the Names and Id's of the Blocks and/or Items, a Spawn Zombie or Creeper etc Command ( That Also Works with Command Block/ ID 137), um also Forge and ModLoader already installed, Putting Command Block in the Redstone section of Creative Menu. and i don't remember any other ones.
