How can one be so pedantic to call Jeb out on one character (the "s") in a Twitter post that was not meant to be an announcement in any way, but not be pedantic enough to consider horses and donkeys as separate animals?
Not an announcement? If I recall, that's the first thing ever stated about the features of 1.6. How is that not an announcement?
Jeb doesn't say random stuff just to shut people up, if he did, please do provided a source for that.
Looks for official MOD(not plugin) support, doesn't see anything....
To be honest i dont care about added "features" anymore, all the features i want are in mods, all the junk Mojang addes is just boring, let the community make the features, support mods officially.
Also i kinda dont want MC updated because its such a pain to get everything updated, then you have modders that will update to the latest build and drop support for the older versions of MC.
As I understand it:
There are several issues that have to be addressed before a stable mod/plugin API can be generated. That is happening now.
Horses, and the UHC stuff, may seem like "This is best handled in the mods". But not everyone can manage mods.
Forge, in the latest incarnation, manages to handle the "every mojang release is obfuscated differently" issue to where you won't have to wait for mods to be updated for no reason. Note that this is not a guarantee -- this is more like "as long as the features that the mod depends on do not change". It will handle most, but not all, forward/backward compatibility. It is a good first approximation to the mod API, and more importantly, is a good way for Mojang to learn what fails to work, so that Mojang's official Mod API will work better.
As for "Mods have everything": The redstone update had a few things that I had not seen anywhere in mods:
1. The comparator, and nether ore.
2. The ability to still aim at, and target, the tracks underneath a minecart -- lettting you pile (for example) multiple storage carts in one single location.
3. The trapped chest.
You might not think that these are big things.
The whole "Has anyone even used a storage minecart even once?" question, being turned into "gaa! Look at how powerful and useful they are" is actually amazing.
I need to play with / test the momentum of storage carts and furnace carts now. The wiki actually documents hopper carts as being exceedingly high momentum, so they are very easy to use as pusher engines -- an unexpected bonus.
Oh wait is say "Some balancing to potions and hunger " not potions and health oh well still thx for the snapshot can't wait to try it out Aslo I would do a review of this but no screen recorder from techsmith that doesn't have a 30 day trial and I only trust transmits my dad acceuly tawt me to use it so...
