    Markus Persson: We've added melons, and made both melons and pumpkins farmable so you can grow them. Both have a central stem that slowly grows to max size. When it's max size, it will randomly spawn a fruit next to it if there isn't one next to it at the moment. We might add even more farming options if needed.


    The random dungeons are part of the terrain, and will contain a reason to explore them. It's likely our first boss monster may appear in the dungeons, but we haven't gotten that far in their development yet.


    IGN: Can you provide more detail on the NPC villages? How large will they be? What will the NPCs be doing there? Will they live in houses? What sorts of services will they provide, if any? Can you kill them and break their stuff? Are there a limited number of villages in someone's world?

    Markus Persson: I'd rather keep this secret for now, but I will say that you can choose to either help the villages or to destroy them if you wish.

    posted a message on I just saw a splash that said something interesting...
    It's a reference to A Link to the Past and its fairies, insofar as I know.

    The splashes don't mean anything, never have, never will.

    Like more accurate information, better details, more details and less (wrong) speculation? Let me show you to a handy little thing called "The Official 1.8 Discussion thread"

    http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/404017-beta-18-discoveries-discussion/

    Please, everyone go read it and make sure you are fully informed. The update will not come out until after PAX, and after the feedback they get from PAX has been implemented.

    This thread is most needed thread ever. Have you seen the ninety six threads that pop up with each new tweet? The hundreds with each new picture?

    posted a message on What are you working on right now?
    I got my Texture Pack Planner updated, finally, took forever because of troubles, and now I am working on making a texture pack so I can finally play again after months of either not having a system for it, or not having a texture pack to play it with.

    I can't stand to play with Default or non-custom texture packs because how customized the game can be graphically is a huge part of the appeal.

    We discussed this on the page prior. It's most likely going to be September.

    The next PAX is August 26th to 28th. So, looks like late August, early September?


    They usually give themselves a few days break, and there's the whole process of getting back. That'd make it the 31st at the earliest, if they only took Tuesday off and got back early in the day. They'd have no time to implement any bugfixes or corrections from what they learn at PAX, except for day of release, and that'd be a bit haphazard, even for them.

    Plus, that's assuming it is complete for PAX, which he doesn't imply that it will be. I would think that the second week of September would be the earliest.

    Troll-calling is against the rules, and even if it weren't, there is no indication that this is an attempt at trolling. He may simply be uninformed about what can spawn in a dungeon chest. I used to think that beyond a few standbys (saddles, buckets) everything else was just randomly chosen from everything in the game.

    The original post should probably be updated with an estimated release date of September - October, given that October is the latest possible release date (month-wise) and the PAX announcement confirms it won't be until after August.

    Quote from chukie

    Why would this get flammed?


    Because it's a duplicate thread. All 1.8 discussion goes in the 1.8 thread, way it has always been done and hopefully will be done.


    Here is a tip to the people that replied; if you report it, Jefe will get to it as quickly as he can and lock it so it can sink on down the tubes. He's got a full time job but he does his best and his best is quicker than the best around and nobody's ever going to get him down. SWEEP THE LEG, MAN WITH THE RON SWANSON AVATAR!

    Well, at least we know someone was right on June 19th, 2011, in case there was any doubt.

    Thanks for bringing this thread back to contribute what has already been stated.

    Quote from miauw62

    That would be possible, but if the wolf head is too high you wont be able to get in it.
    On the other side, it would have to be quite thick to hide all the mechanics.
    I think making an enterance in his ass is easier ;o


    That's what I did pre-1.5 for my wolf base. There was a ladder hidden in his tail and you climbed up it. I should try to recover that schematic, it might help the people in this thread. He wasn't the most handsome wolf but he did the job well.

    posted a message on Maps - as useful as wolves?
    Quote from jainaseagol

    That would actually make sense. If you marked it in blood.


    Or if you could use specific dyes so you could organize your checkpoints.

    Rose Red - Dungeon
    Yellow - Clay
    Green - Cactus Farm.
