1.13 Passed Cert!

Just got the email from Microsoft. I’m changing MOTD to warn users of the incoming update. As usual, it will likely take around 24 hours for the update to appear in all marketplaces.

Now, bring on the bugs! I hope I haven’t screwed up royally like with 1.11 :-) Or was it 1.10?

Actually there are a few glitches that I know of, but I didn’t want to delay submission any further and so hadn’t fixed them. For example if you remove a dirt block next to a grass block, sometimes the removed dirt block may reappear spontaneously after 1-30 seconds. This is a bug with grass spreading and is already fixed for 1.14. Another one is when you stay very long in one place (several game days, maybe more). After that if you move, there might be a lot of birds around your area (the more the longer you stay). It is a problem with the new creature spawning system. Also fixed for 1.14. Ladder dismounting is also fixed for 1.14. Been busy last couple of days.

Let’s hope there won’t be anything more serious :-)

    How do we prevent grass from spreading to dirt blocks that we don’t want grass on?

      Grass only spreads to neighboring blocks, so leave 1 block of margin of e.g. stone around any grass you dont’t want to spread.

        That basically ruins the map I’ve been working on… :(

        Can you at least make it so blocks of dirt placed in Creative mode can’t grow grass?

        • Posted July 12, 2012 at 13:59 | Permalink

          Why can’t you place dirt away from grass? At the moment there is no difference between dirt placed in creative or otherwise so I can’t do it :-(

        I guess you can’t please everyone :( I like the grass re-growing, this way I don’t have to dig up and put down grass. I just have to alter my path from castle to town into sand in some areas I guess, no biggie

        I’m making a replica of the entire map from the 1st gen Pokemon games. These require “ledges” that are made of dirt that are often right next to large plots of grass. Requiring a separator between the edge and the grass would look totally wrong. I can post up screenshots if you want. Grass spreading will basically ruin the entire map.

        Maybe you could add a new block type? “barren dirt” that can’t grow grass?

        @Austin There are a few options you have:
        – use another block type instead of dirt (e.g. gravel?)
        – use a texture pack to make another block type look like dirt
        – don’t update :-)

        I’m sorry that grass spreading ruins your map :-(

      No offense intended; but this is “survival craft”, not CallofDuty… If kaalus has not mentioned it, I do not think he plans on including them…

        I just think it would be more interesting if it had like a musket or something.

    Cg, your poor grammar and constant misunderstanding makes you seem under 8 years old. Guns will most likely not be implemented unless there are mods at one point. You have asked the same question several times and many of us have already said no. I’m pretty sure Kaalus has said that too. If you are going to ask a question, atleast keep up with it.

      Actually in cg’s defense kaalus did say he might at some point put in guns. But the constant asking is annoying as well

        Rather than guns, what if we had bows or maybe even blowguns. And maybe there could be a way to craft poisons from plants to coat the arrows or darts. So if you can’t kill the animal right away you can just track the animal until the poison takes effect and collect your kill

        Blow guns could be made of bamboo shafts, poisons could be from plants or possibly scorpions. And maybe darts are made of wood, rock, steel, and can be diamond plated. Like 1 plank equals 4 darts (darts would be destroyed once shot)….just an idea I had, let me know what you think

        • Posted July 13, 2012 at 03:03 | Permalink

          Of all the shooting weapons bow must come first. If i can only find some time…

    A blow gun would be a nice twist and i like reundeadified’s idea of crafting it

    A crossbow, maybe? To have tiers of hunting weapons, blowgun-bow-crossbow-arbalest (steel crossbow).

      Plus you could use the poisons to tip the darts, arrows, and bolts. Maybe throwing knives could be cool

    Hey guys what do you think of transport pipes such as in tekkit in minecraft I think it would be really helpful rather than moving the stuff yourself they could be made of wood a nd glass
