This week's Snapshot has a massive number of features! In addition to trading updates, enchantment improvements and SSP/SMP merging improvements, Adventure Map makers will be thrilled to know that there is a new game mode - "Adventure Mode" - to be tested! This mode prevents players from breaking blocks, while still allowing interactions like button/lever use, trading with villagers, and so on. The full feature list is below!
The snapshots can potentially destroy your save games, even though we try our best not to do that. Only use them if you know what you are doing. To “install” a snapshot, you download the JAR file and replace the one located in your “application data” folder. The easiest way to find that folder is to start the game, select “texture packs” and click on the “open texture pack folder” button. It will locate “.minecraft/texturepacks”, and the JAR file should be placed in “.minecraft/bin”.
To UNINSTALL the snapshot, start the launcher (Minecraft.exe on Windows) and click the “options” button. Then click on “force update” and login as usual. The launcher will then download the official JAR file for you. Note that save games created in the snapshot may not work (and probably doesn’t) in the official version of the game.
They should have taken those paragraphs out of context. The first paragraph that was not shown states that he was just recapping for how to install/uninstall snapshots. What he said there refers to every snapshot they have ever released really.
here is the first part:
"I recently received an angry email about these snapshots. The complaint was that we just upload these JAR files with absolutely no information on how they are supposed to be used. This is true, and is somewhat of a legacy from how the snapshotting was started: to give previews of possibly broken features. Expert users could satisfy their curiosity, and we received invaluable feedback on work in progress."
30 enchanting ??? thats like picking a candy from a child... tooooooo easy!
50 was just fine.
was it ? , the only way to get 50 was to spend lots of time grinding at a mob system. Not exactly my idea of fun. 30 is reachable without grinding ( although maybe hard) so its more of a balanced number
Anyways, these are some great updates! Sexy Emerald Blocks, Emerald Ore is back, fixes with the enchantment table and more trading with Villagers, and tons more. I'm surprised 1.3 hasn't been released!
To: Whoever doesn't know what a cobble/stone brick monster egg is
A stone monster egg is any one of the blocks that would spawn a silverfish if broken. Also, the stone blocks are capable of being burrowed into by the silverfish. How to detect: If the block mines slightly slower than the surrounding blocks, it is a hidden silverfish block. (ID:97)
Did anyone else notice that you get experience out of digging certain blocks. I started a new world and only have had it so far with a Wooden Pick on Coal...
[Edit] I mean I have mined only 12 pieces of Coal Ore with a Wooden Pick and a Stone Pick and I'm at level 4. If this happens with Iron then you don't even need mobs... Anyone else found this?
[Edit 2] OK, so it looks like only blocks that drop items, rather than the actual block, give XP. Emerald Ore, Coal Ore, Diamond Ore, Redstone Ore, Lapis Lazuli Ore. Any other blocks you guys have found?
Great update! Tripwires are gonna run all through the custom maps now D: Oh no!!! Wonder what's next?
I wanna find some emerald ore. No more having to kill millions of mobs now! Still no 1.3? It is a big update, so...
take your time (or hurry up! Whichever)
