This update is AWESOME! Few Minor flaws, but still AWESOME!
Exploring The Nether:
This is the biggest part about the update, and best, exploring hell is AWESOME! With new blocks, lava everywhere (Like a Hell Infinite source block) and new mobs, I quite like the design behind it... I like the idea of Ghasts and Men... Like lost souls. Its fun to explore, and I think it will take a while before the community know the portal system inside out, I know I don't!
Ghasts are just right, they are not overpowered or underpowered. You can hit their fireballs back, which I quite like as a game function and not a glitch. And they certainly scare me.
Are quite strange, they are peaceful until you attack them which is quite strange. But if you attack them, or I hear as drop on them, they rip your flesh apart. They come in tribes so you are DEAD if you get attacked by them. But me (and nearly every other person on the planet) must absolutely DREAD their annoying squeaks. They make Hell into scary land.
Deeper you are: More mobs spawn rule (And mob AI in general)
This. Is FAR too much for me. This sucks!!!! I have a big base and I want to be SAFE in my lit mine, I want to be safe. And I like mobs, just not too many. The update brings too many mobs spawns, annoying torches everywhere, (Gonna have to go through my HUGE ass cavern and light every 3 cm) and loss of coal too quickly. The AI of the mobs is harder, TOO hard. Remember when sun used to kill mobs? Well F*** that. Now they hide under trees or hide in water. They gather in groups and attack FAR too badly. How the hell am I to walk out and enjoy the daytime with 70 F****** Creepers out!?!? Now I'm SURE some people like this difficulty. I'm happy for them, but can't you out an aggressive difficulty as well? All Easy/Med/Hard does is change damage amounts. I don't know if it affects how much they spawn, but if it doesn't, then tough luck, It seems creepers blow up on ALL difficulty, forgetting Peaceful. NERF this. Its takes all the fun cave exploring out of the game!
This didn't make it yet, but:
I say I'm fine with this. If the rarity of the mats are more or less the same... [TAA] Torches Are Awesome. Cheap to make, and they USED to stop mobs spawning so much. And being able to see? Yup. :smile.gif: If lanterns need Iron Diamond or Gold, I will be P1ssed. If you start a game, you want unlimited light... right? Well Torches have provided that, but if you make it so we can barely find mats to make lanterns, then we will naturally all hate the lanterns update. But if they are cheap to make, (Glass, Coal, Maybe new material Wax?) then I'm fine. Also no hell materials, if you start out, you aren't going to hell too quickly to get light in your base.
I like this part, its like, if you are not near your base, you still can heal. This is good! I am fine with the amount it heals as it is available everywhere, but the problem is: Pigs are better because they heal more. Unless I weren't near Pigs, I would just go for the pig, I am fine with the amount it heals as you can find water everywhere, but maybe make it a bit more healing?
Score! Less bugs for SMP is always good! Not much to say about it though.
I love this, I have always wanted some sort of way of telling other people that is halloween festively. Not much use in the game, but its a neat lil' addition.
This is VERY useful, wanted something like this for ages. Mining stuff makes it quite hard to find out what time of the day it is. So having this is awesome. Well at least it sounded awesome until I found out that MY ENTIRE LIT CAVE WAS FILLED WITH MOBS! Now I am never going to that cave ever again. Thanks for that overpowered spawn system Notch. But if you play on Peaceful you can <3 this.
I love this part, often I found my self going into world 5 and seeing what the generator could come up with. this just makes this more fun! I guess I should start on my sand farm :biggrin.gif: Desert ftw.
This isn't released yet?
I never have music on, but I'm sure you guys LOVE this. As for sound when this comes out, I can't wait for it... especially the new water sounds, they are seeexy.
Well thats all! Btw, this isn't a troll post, I love the update... EXCEPT THAT STUPID AI CRAP! Please leave comments on what you think. Do you agree?
