This week, Minecraft News brings us up to speed on a number of hot topics. David and Toby cover the most recent snapshot - 12w03a - which includes ladder fixes (as well as making vines climbable), massive, lush jungle biomes filled to the brim with tall trees and voluminous underbrush, wolf breeding (never go looking for wolves again!), and a number of other exciting changes. Additionally, they touch base with Mojang's participation with a SOPA-related blackout, catch up on the hottest 3D printing news, and more - click the banner above, and give it a watch!
Recently, Minecraft - Pocket Edition passed up 700 thousand sold copies, across the iOS, Android and Xperia markets (roughly 5,000 copies a day!) since becoming available on the handheld market in November - congratulations, guys!
Hmm, it seems as if I have a completely different opinion of the jungle than anyone else. I do NOT like them. The tall trees are just ugly. There is too much foliage on the ground, I think patches of them would be fine, or Jeb should make a new block that acts as bushes, something not so much of an eye sore. And also, I find that the Jungle biome is far too expansive, or at least the map I went on was far too big. However, I do love the vines hanging down, and the new wood texture isnt bad.
Overall, I find that the Jungle needs to be toned down a bit, but has great potetial.
I think the jungle is absolutely epic, the fact that its so overpowering is absolutely wonderful, in contrast to voidfury I think it need not be changed, it adds some color to the dull sandy/plains biomes, of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion but this was really a game changer for me
