I am still working on easier downloading of worlds and blocks textures (formerly known as texture packs). This is a large feature, but I reckon I am 75% complete at this point. I will probably soon write about it in more detail, so that you know what’s the idea behind it.
In the meantime I added another small, unrelated feature. It is a possibility to download a world or texture pack directly from a web link. If, for example, someone puts his creation on the internet and posts the link on the forum, you will be able to copy the link and paste it in the game to download it.
No need to go through Dropbox anymore.
Here’s how the UI looks like:
You need to manually specify content type and name, because it cannot be deduced automatically from the link alone.
I am so glad that a year ago I spent a couple of weeks creating a proper UI library, instead of hardcoding it. Without it so many things would be impossible, or at least prohibitively hard. In 1.20 I am adding a lot of UI, new screens, new dialog boxes. These new features really put the engine through the wringer, but it holds fine. So far.
