you should be able to right click with just the star in your hand, and have it detonate where your standing
smoke bombs anyone?
also that should work for dispensers, so you can make a scene of say, a place exploding
death star escape idea
You can do this i was playing around with it and got a steam pipe like look out of it, just trap the firework with a half slab and make the particles only shoot out one side works great and looks cool!!!
The fireworks are cool and if they are SSP obtainable, then I will defintely set some up as cool decorations on the top of my west melon farm (they would not really look very good anywhere else), but I am really interested in the enchantment books. FINALLY I can enchant my diamond picks safely (once the bugs are worked out). Sure, it will cost a few more levels, but it is so worth it. Now I can finally create the ultimate pick!! Also, the netherbrick slabs are awesome. I have wanted to add more realistic looking shingles to my NPC village houses for the longest time. Finally, I can do it!! Thanks, Mojang!!
The firework dont work,I can craft the rocket and lauch it,but nothing is happening.Also i tryed alot of possiblity to craft the Firestar and custom it with no result.Only found for the Rocket that need a stick,paper and gun power.
Also,i love the enchant book idea,but i was kinda disaspointed after trying enchant them. Spending almost 30 lvl for a single random enchant that u probably dont need at all. I prefers Enchant manualy my stuff than using the enchanted book ._.
(Well it can be kinda usefull for enchanting armor,without spending diamond trying getting Protection 4)
For the nether brick slab ... Yay!!
And please,fix the glicth from being stuck in the grass block after generating the new world and the intense lag freeze when chunk update on the nether (Is Really Annoying!!!!) Look to be more worst on each update
Netherbrick slab- Great addition and makes many builders quite happy
Fireworks- meh, I don't particularly like this addition because it doesn't really fit Minecraft imo. But it doesn't bother me at all either.
Enchantable books- Good idea but poor execution. Hopefully it gets changed up for the better
I hate the new stuff that isn't adding anything to the gameplay value i.e. Bats and Fireworks....
Enchanted books are quite useful in my opinion.
And fireworks are just for fun. Maybe they don't add anything to the gameplay, but Minecraft is not only about mining, surviving and all that stuff. There's always time and space for fun with things like fireworks.
I spoted a glitch, you can not open wood doors while in sneak mode.And to all those who think fireworks are only here for fun, you could use them in smp as signs that, well, there could be many things. A creeper head could mean that a faction is under attack. Also, while exploring, you could use a firework to tell your friend's back home that you are being attacked, or you are lost, or maybe you spotted something very cool.

One day, Mr.Creeper woke up from a nightmare of a cat. The sun was setting, and it was time to get up. He was nervous. It was his first day of destroying houses and people. But with some help from some other mobs he did it. TEAMWORK!

Hm, maybe they should change it from Shift+click to Ctrl+click.
Well it's pretty obvious Mojang either doesn't care one bit about their modding community or they're so disconnected from the modding community it's almost the same thing.. Did there really need to be another update for 3 bloody items??? Unless this bug-fix list is big.. WHY? You couldn't have folded these three items into 1.5???
Whatever... I wouldn't want to be around mod makers with this news.
I think the fact that they keep wasting their time on more and more BS added to the game instead of making a modding API so the mod makers can add those things (and more) themselves (not to mention Mojang could use the API to make their own mods for whatever they want to put out) makes me think they long ago lost all touch with the modding community. Mojang should have had a modding aPI done at official release considering how critical it is to the game.
Instead of adding useless stuff like fireworks I think their time could be better spent working on things like the mod API or improving terrain generation (which is the biggest problem with the game right now, IMO). I could live without any nifty new items for a while if I thought they were working on improving what we already had.
There are (at least) two groups of people working on Minecraft in Mojang. More likely there are 3 or more, but in very general terms, there are the guys working on the API, and the guys NOT working on the API.
This update is coming from the guys NOT working on the API. Putting them on the API team would NOT help get the API out faster. In fact, it would likely make it take longer because the people currently working on the API would have to STOP WORKING ON IT to TEACH THEM what they needed to know in order to work on it.
So, in short, the addition of fireworks, or bats, or carrots on sticks, or bug fixes, or ANYTHING content related has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with how long the API is going to take. Period. So blow off your fireworks and let Mojang manage their company the way they want. Trust me, they know more about it than you do.
