Alpha 1.4 progress

Alpha 1.4 will be an interim update while I keep working on the animals. As I said before, it contains mainly bugfixes and a small number of new features. In this case, the main new thing will be bricks:

You will be able to smelt bricks from gray clay (a new material for 1.4), which can be found on the bottoms of lakes in wetlands. You can also sometimes find layers of it buried shallow underground.

I know a lot of you are asking about maps, compasses, planting trees and regrowing grass. Any of these features is fairly big, and I don’t want to delay my work on the animals too much. I will probably work on some of them for the next interim update.

    Awesome as ever
    If possible, could you implement for 1.4 a method to view the seed of the map?
    I think, it’s not big and should done quick (or not?)
    And it will be nice, if we can enable/disable some GUI elements or the whole gui if we don’t need it (or maybe at least should we able to rearrange the gui, cause the screen is a little bit full and I don’t need some elements very often, such as the help button [I know, what I must do, because I play SC since release, so I don’t need the help button])

    Anyway, just continue with your plans, SC’s awesomeness is growing with each update

      And please, increase the rate for spawning coal, malachite, copper etc.
      In my actual world, I hardly find coal and must burn it from wood. (Same for the other metals, the only difference is, that I can’t craft metals from wood :P)
      The most material I found is basalt and normal stone (thats really normal)
      Even in the original minecraft, there’s more coal.
      Or does I only have no luck and the wrong cave to mine?
      Please answer me, so I will know, whats wrong. (I think, it’s not normal, that I find so few coal and metal)

        Normally there is quite a lot of coal, but I’m still increasing it a bit for Alpha 1.4.
