Back-to-back Snapshots can only mean one thing - 1.5 is nearly upon us! This Snapshot corrects another massive round of bugs, as well as giving the detector rail an animation. What was fixed this go-around?
Unicode font text shadow misaligned
Activated detector-rails moved by a piston keep their activated state
Single player mode, creative mode, E to select block, select block from grid, E to return to game, game freezess, crash log created
What do you mean, lighting will never be fixed? Mojang is completely rewriting the lighting engine for this update. Why? Because they finally realized something we have known for a while now: no matter how many times they've "fixed" the lighting in the past, somehow it's still messed up. Judging by how many snapshots they're throwing out and all the bug fixes listed for them, I have confidence that they're committed to getting it right this time. Maybe that's just my two cents, I don't know. Perhaps a poll on that question, "Will this update fix the lighting once and for all?" is in order?
Since when could you move rails with pistons without breaking the rails?
I don't remember them ever not doing that. The rail will break if it can't go the new spot (like a dropoff) but otherwise it'll just slide on over. It'll even be nice and connect to any rails in the new location.
