So yesterday they surprised us with 13w16B, and added NAME TAGS,


I like this, you can find them in Dungeon Chests and now it is possible to rename a mob In survival.

1.6's MAIN Focus Seems to be on pets, making pets more lovable and some what decoration.

What Do you think? Adding Leads (Leashes), and Name tags... The Companion Update, The Pet Update?

I wish people looked at the snapshots instead of being lazy ­and demanding a source

That's what Im saying, you can play this at anytime, and with this new launcher you can go right back to playin 1.5.1 as normal!

I feel that Mojang should add new splashes that say: "Source Please", And "Forget _______ Mojang should work on _______"

I also think this is aimed to be more of a pet-oriented update. Maybe we'll finally get pet beds of some kind.

Are the name tags useable yet? I was messing around with the snapshot a little before and couldn't get them to do anything. Not with a horse, a cow, or a wolf.

Rename them in an anvil then right click a mob with them.

For horses, you have to be riding them and then right-click with the name tag to use the it on them. I was just messing with naming stuff in creative, didn't know that they are going to be added to dungeon chests. That's pretty cool.

add parrots maybe? spawn in jungle biomes. You have to stand still and they will land on your shoulder. once that happens maybe you clip their wings with shears and they are tamed? with a few different colors like cats. Maybe they can be used to send messages to other people? Just my idea of another pet.

Yes! Apparently the name tags stop any mob you put them on from de-spawning. That is going to be amazing for map makers!
The problem with the truth, is that it never lies.

You could already do that with the magic of NBT Data, actually.

An interesting way of making mobs name-able in survival I must say.

They need axolotls spawning in swamps.

OT, If the name tags really do keep mobs from despawning, I can't wait to have a li'l pet slime & a spider (who I'll have to avoid at night)
