    So now with 1.10 past us... 1.11 hype anyone? :P


    I'd really love to see some more survival things to do. More underground things, and reasons to go out and adventure.
    Quote from Gamelord»



    I didn't even do anything. I just disagreed with you. This is getting rather flame-bait-y rather quickly.




    Then you were wrong about what major update means.




    No, it's just called major because it has new content. That's is the factual reason. And I just explained that to you. I wasn't even close to flaming you or insulting you at all. It is a major update by the definition of major update.



    It isn't a major update because the second digit changes. The second digit changes because it's a major update.


    And they call it a major update when there is new playable content.


    Worldsshrugged, I really don't get where you think I've been rude or somehow not explained this to you. I made the reason very clear, but you act like I'm holding back from giving you a straight answer just to insult you or something.


    Keep it civil guys, and lets stay on topic.

    Still, you've been updating news and updates threads for like... two years? You've done a good job. Thanks for these.

    Since February 2015, so almost a year and a half. Thanks! As for a 1.11 topic, I talked with Sunperp, when 1.11 snapshots start, I'll just continue updating this topic.

    Indeed. Just like we eat rotten flesh from undead humans or feed our dogs with it, we use all kind of squick ingredients in potions, we build with slime from dead monsters (slime blocks) and even with captured souls (soulsand), we use bones to let our trees and crops grow and we even use a huge, undead demonic abomination with three heads from down under, sucking all the life from living creatures to feed itself, to cut our trees automatically.

    Yep, Minecraft is really a kids game... :P


    Breaking news: Minecrafters everywhere start to question their sanity.

    Jeb posted this image, saying, and I quote: "Testing some ideas from MC:PE and suggested by @argo_major http://i.imgur.com/KjBqEEe.jpg Not sure yet, taiga villages often look messed up =)":



    So we're possibly getting that, Jeb still seems to be deciding. We're also getting some PE features - note the wooden bridge over the water, which is a PE feature that we seem to be receiving.


    I'm looking forward to these QoL changes. Added the pic to the thread.

    Welcome back.



    Do you think Endermen get to the Nether because they walk in there with new pathing AI, or do they just spawn there?


    Good question. It could be they randomly pop up, I'd expect that.
    Quote from Ryu13526»

    You're Back! :"D


    Like I posted on the old 1.10 thread, Searge is making a puzzle! There are some people who solve those puzzles..

    After they solve some of those puzzles,

    they got these words: in 1.10, 17, and I'll add.

    If you put these together, it will be

    I'll add_______ 17________in 1.10

    but there are some words missing so..

    good luck to the puzzle solvers! ^_^


    17 block variants? I would love prismarine slabs!

        • Sometimes appears whenever a gravity-affected block is placed without a support block below.
        • Does not apply to dragon eggs.
        • The particle collides with blocks.
        • fallingdust can be summoned, making use of the params argument like blockcrack and several other particles do.
          • Example: /particle fallingdust ~ ~ ~ 0 0 0 0 1 0 @p 10 will summon a particle matching the color of lava (block 10)



    Commands

        • Replaces the IsVillager and VillagerProfession tags.

      • ParticleParam1 and ParticleParam2 integer tags for AreaEffectCloud entities.
        • These work just like the two <params> arguments work, in /particle.
        • Example: /summon AreaEffectCloud ~ ~1 ~ {Duration:600,Radius:2.0f,Particle:"iconcrack",ParticleParam1:351,ParticleParam2:3}
          • Summons a cloud of iconcrack particles with the texture of item 351 (dye), and data value 3 (cocoa beans).

    Debug screen

      • F3 + G toggles the visibility of chunk borders around the player.
        • Everytime it is toggled, a message in chat appears.
        • Shows a blue outline for the chunk the player is currently in and a yellow outline for individual air blocks in the vicinity of the chunk.
          • The blue outline in particular, will outline the chunk horizontally on top of the solid blocks on the ground.
          • The outlines extended arbitrarily up, but end at bedrock level.


    World generation


    Fossils

      • Generates 15–24 blocks underground in deserts, swampland, and their M and hills variants. Each chunk has a 164 chance of generating a fossil.
      • Composed of bone blocks and some coal ore, arranged as to resemble the skulls and spines of giant extinct creatures.
        • There are 4 variants of the skull, and 4 variants of the spine sections.

    Blocks


    Structure void

      • It is an intangible block used to indicate to the structure blocks that certain air blocks can be overridden by previously existing blocks in the destination.
        • Intended to be a replacement for the function barrier blocks used to convey (during early development), so they can form part of the structure itself.

      • They are invisible and have a small hitbox.
        • They are only visible when they are inside a structure being saved by a save structure blocks and the toggle option "show invisible blocks" is true.

      • Allows for empty spaces in a structure.
        • Unlike air, it will not overwrite blocks where it is loaded.
        • Example: If you load a 2 block high structure with air at the top and a structure void at the bottom into a 2 block high area of stone, the top block will become air but the bottom will stay stone.


    Magma block

      • Found in the Nether, generating 4 veins per chunk between Y=27 and Y=36.

      • Crafted using four magma cream.
      • Mobs and players take 1 (Half Heart.svg) damage every second while touching it, similar to a cactus.
        • Unlike cactus or fire, this block doesn't destroy items that touch it.
        • Mobs avoid magma blocks that are in the way.

      • Most mobs don't spawn on magma blocks. Exceptions are magma cubes, zombie pigmen, and squid.
      • If the player is sneaking, wearing Frost Walker-enchanted armor, or under the
      • Fire Resistance effect, it does not take damage.
      • If the player dies by standing on it, a new death message will appear: "[Player] discovered floor was lava."
        • If the player dies by the block, but after being damaged by a mob or player, the death message will be: "[Player] walked into danger zone due to [Mob or Player]."

      • Removes water blocks on top when randomly ticked.
      • It produces smoke particles under the rain.
      • It emits as much light as it receives from other sources.
        • e.g. A magma block next to a torch will emit light at level 13, as that was the light level it received from the torch.
          • If the torch were to be removed then it will search for the next brightest source of light; if no source is found then it will continue to emit the same amount of light as the torch.
          • It can emit daylight if it was exposed to the sun.



    Nether wart block

    • Crafted by filling a 3x3 square in the crafting table with nether wart.
    • It cannot be crafted back into nether wart.

    Red nether brick


    Bone block

    • Crafted by filling a 3x3 square in the crafting table with Bone Meal.
    • Placing it in a crafting table yields 9 bone meal back.
    • Found underground in desert and swamps as part of the fossil structure.

        • These new mushrooms can appear during world generation or by being planted by the player.

    World generation


    Plains and Sunflower Plains

        • Uses dark oak wood for wooden structures.
        • New NBT tag MST on mineshaft structure pieces to indicate the type. 0 is the traditional mineshaft, 1 is the new mesa mineshaft.

      • Features generate differently if above ground (i.e. the sky light where they generate is 8 or more). This is not dependent on mineshaft type.
        • Cave spider spawners no longer generate if sky light is 8 or more.
        • Various wooden pieces no longer generate if the block above is air and/or if sky light is 8 or more.
        • Rails in corridors are more complete if sky light is below 8.

      • Now generates grass under stairs instead of a dirt path.
      • Cobblestone now spawn around wells instead of gravel.

        • This allows paths to generate properly under trees.

      • Paths are made with different material depending on the existing terrain.
        • If replacing grass blocks, the path is made from grass path blocks.
        • If replacing water or lava, the path is made from planks.

        • Save, S - build structure in world, tell the block where it is and it saves it to file.
          Load, L - loads saved structure files, replacing blocks with saved blocks except for structure void blocks.
          Corner, C - for automatic size calculation.
          Data, D - for chest markers and other blocks that require data (default).

      • Structures can be stored, bundled and loaded per world, in the "structures" folder
      • Structures are limited to a size of 32 blocks in each direction.
      • The coordinates used by the blocks are relative to themselves.

    • This update has the fewest amount of snapshots to date, with a mere 3 compared to the 20-30 from previous updates.
    • The time span between the releases of 16w20a and 1.10-pre1 is only 3 weeks, abnormal according to the Mojang standards.






    Polar Bears

    Could be a new skeleton variant, or a special skeleton for snowy biomes.

    Endermen can now hop into the nether. INB4 they teleport into lava

    Actually, the endermen will probably walk onto this brimstone or whatever it is.

    New villages would be nice, but I'd like to see a special building for each biome village.

    Auto jump will be added, it's going to be on by default. Toggleable.

    Jens says that this block is the Structure block, the second game changing block (first was command block). More info to follow in the future.

    Jens mentioned that these blocks made out of nether warts could be added.

    Well they've already made spamclicking viable again in the 1.9.1 pre-releases, though I'm expecting it the change again after I started some stuff on reddit.

    Huh, interesting. Well, while tweaking is needed, this system is better than the old one (in my opinion).

    I find it funny people are still attacking/defending the combat system. There is no point in arguing about it, it's really pointless. I highly doubt Mojang would remove it at this point. I know they have removed things in the past, but this system I doubt they would. In my opinion, combat is in a good state, although some tweaking could be done to improve it (automatically toggle the 'ready' bar, or actually add a tutorial for combat.).


    EDIT: Also, check out 1.9.1pre3. They modified it a bit and it's improved a bit more.

    Regardless of what people say, in my opinion, the combat overhaul has made survival more fun. I have to be cautious in what I do, caves are dangerous to venture into, etc. It brings back memories of when survival was hard for me when I first started playing Minecraft. Sleeping is super useful now, and prevents the onslaught night can bring. The danger of mobs also gives you an incentive to find better gear (or strip mine for ores).

    The new system is better than the spamfest that the old system was. The new system allows pvp and pve to be more challenging, plus with 1.9.1pre3, the amount of damage done when it's not fully charged is increased, so if you miss an attack it isn't as brutal.

    Lastly, a feature that would make the whole 'ready' animation better would instead of having the weapon pop up into view, have it swing forward and up. It's a lot more obvious and makes sense (you swing the weapon forward, then back up.)

    Well, TFP could easily help out with the 1.10 thread that currently exists by posting in there instead. I suppose it's not quite as good, but it's something.


    That's what I plan on doing now.

    To avoid confusion, we want these types of threads to be specific to a particular major version of Minecraft, especially when new and old versions might have overlapping periods of development (such as Minecraft 1.9 post-release patching and 1.10 pre-release information or snapshots). Since there is already a thread exclusively focusing on information about 1.10 (and not trying to be a 1.9 and 1.10 thread simultaneously), that thread would be a better fit as the active "official" discussion thread for 1.10.

    I have no problem keeping this thread open as a continued discussion about 1.9, but having two redundant 1.10 threads would simply cause confusion and would result in the typical things we see with redundant threads: duplicate discussions copied back and forth, posts in one thread linking to posts in the other thread, people assuming that since there are multiple threads, they can go ahead and create a thread of their own discussing the same subject, people confusing one thread for the other and getting upset about not finding a particular conversation they might have been keeping track of, etc.


    I really can't think of any benefit there would be to the forum in allowing multiple redundant 1.10 informational threads to exist that would outweigh the issues that we would have to deal with resulting from that.

    Alright, fair enough. This topic is pretty old now. I can see how it is a bit redundant to have super similar topics.

    There is already another thread for discussing 1.10, please use that thread for any 1.10 discussion and keep this thread as a place for discussing any further 1.9 patch updates that may occur.

    - sunperp


    Just wondering, why can't I update this thread for 1.10? I had plans on doing that once 1.9 came out.
