1.18 Passed Cerification on WP7

Got the email a couple of hours ago. As before, this means the update is probably already in the marketplaces.

In the meantime I updated the texture pack and blocks data to 1.18 in Files/Technical section, so that you can update your texture packs if you want to. The major changes from 1.17 is lack of ingots (they are modelled in 3d now), and of course pumpkins.

Have fun.

    Why not do a christmas update with an evil santa and rainders and exploding presents and make it so you can place coal and light it an it burns slowly and add wooly coats so if you go in a snowy place you start to die without a wooly coat. Add dogs and a sladge so the dogs can pull you. Make lightning strikes happen more
    And add naturle events like earthquakes e.t.c and add npc’s and they can build there houses also add multi-player.
    Just some thoughts

    You could introduce a parachute so it will help you get from very high mountains to other places while you glide across the air :)

        I have a feeling some of us have our updates to be loaded a certain time of day or night that would make sense.

    Storm sounds are always on despite volume being at 0. Also storms are always on even in static mode, some things to fix in 1.19

    Hi ;)

    First: very good ubdate and cool woolfes and storm etc. . Really very nice! And everything works.

    But a glitch how you can die in creative mode: make a hole two blocks down in the earth and set two pumkin torches under yourself. You die :/

    You can’t throw ingots anymore. But oh well, why waste some copper to kill a wolf?

    Are you considering targeting WP8/RT in the future? It seems as though you’re developing and testing on PC, you’ve got solid touch controls, and Notch has talked himself into a corner on supporting RT.

    Running it on the 920 now, I there a way to increase the resolution because it looks pixelated now.

      Settings has a option for video settings

      • Posted November 3, 2012 at 01:37 | Permalink | Reply

        Yes, but it maxes out at 800×480. The Lumia 920 is 1280×768

        • Posted November 3, 2012 at 09:56 | Permalink

          I don’t know yet what is the Microsoft policy on resolution for WP7 apps on WP8. It’s the early days, maybe there is a way to increase it but scanning through the docs I haven’t found anything obvious.

    For your next update could you make wolves be your pets or villagers in a random village I tried to post it on your form but it gave me an error

    A little issue is that when It rains it gets foggy inside your house. Also i think that you should make certain animals attack each other. For example make a pack of wolves atack a herd of cows and the bulls would defend them. Also make the animals drop more things

      I noticed that too Bob and i still think thats a real thing that happens anyway even if it wasn’t supposed to in game, In the MC game clounds appear in houses etc again in real life that is true. and i would love to see some random animal interation too

        sorry sounds like clowns appearing in your house that could scare you. I sure you realised i meant clouds

          Clouds do not pass through houses in real life nor does rain im pretty sure. I think it shouldn’t get foggy in your house when it is raining as i have noticed this as well.

    when it rains there is a percentage of moisture in the air that is airborn including the damp clothing you have it becomes mist also like clouds. at high altitude or when its foggy the mist does come in all be it momentarily until it turns to water on your windows.

    But no in real life it doesn’t pass through bricks or stone only open doors and windows but programing wise this would be too tricky and too long to eliminate. if you left all your doors and windows open with no heating it would be as cloudy inside as out.
