    on closer inspection, many of the textures for items when displayed in the hotbar are different than before the 1.42 update with the City pack. i noticed many different flowers such as roses and dandeliions, as well as dead bush are not the same as before. i also noticed more issues with end portals spawning when respawning the end dragon. sometimes they skip and do not appear at all. i tried different worlds, on one world, i got 1 on the first end dragon kill, then on #4 and 5. another world was on #1, 3, 4, 6. there's a huge inconsistency as to when the portals actually appear. i was under the impression this was fixed last update, but it doesn't look like it was.


    will the boat navigation also be fixed any time soon ?

    i have also noticed the pixalation and i use the City texture pack. it is different and seems pixeled, other than the seeds being reset to 0 on every single save, which make me wonder how QA could have let something this major slip into an update (seed #;s should be an automatic regression test prior to a release imo).


    i haven't been very impressed over the last few updates since they broke the boat steering which is god-awful, and the tool / hand speed which is horrible since 1.39 or 1.40, but this.. i am very worried i will lose these saves which are worlds my kids and i have worked on for years..

    posted a message on Latest Update for PS4 (1.42) Reset Every Single Save Seed # to "0" ????

    i have 9 saves on my PS4 which, with the exception of 1 save which was created 3 days ago for my daughter, have all been there for a very long time. 3 days ago when i created a new world for my daughter i was showing her the seed # for the world for my son, so all the seed #;s were there.


    Yesterday we get the update, so i update of course as usual. there were no issues during the download or installation t all and i resumed playing my own world. then i noticed the seed # for the save was set to "0" (it was originally 223817).


    at this point i check my other 8 saves.. and all of them have been set to "0" WTH??????


    i am wondering if anyone else has had this happen as well. this is extremely upsetting since now i can't even find the old seed #'s to any of my saves if i wanted to share them or recreate the world, and i am very very worried how this "0" will impact my existing saves to the point where i may have to give them up completely if something bad happened.


    how could something like this happen with an update, as this is a major bug imo with possible major ramifications....

    i would not call this improved when it is unplayable. and yes those are real bugs. i worked QA for over 10 years, i do know what a real bug is, and when things do not work whether is new seeds or old seeds, it is unplayable. this is a very bad update. you want to say i am harsh, so be it. it doesn't matter to me what you think. i care about my children think. and so far, i am not the only one who has been of this opinion. perhaps reading this entire thread, and others, as well as other forums on the web before posting such a comment would be best.


    for now, this game is unplayable. and many here would like to be able to play it again with things actually working.


    and btw, when an enchantment table behaves as it does now, with the description i gave which i tested in 5 different worlds with the exact same result, it is broken. sorry. and that's just one of many many many broken things in post and pre 1.22 seeds.


    anyway, let's hope there is a fix for everything soon as it is more and more obvious their world generation engine is not working on the console the same as it does on PC. the kids and i want to play this game together, and it would be a shame not to be able to anymore.

    over the holidays, the kids and i tried creating a few new worlds, tried to play some of our old worlds. this game right now as it stands i completely unplayable. both of my children looked at me on Sunday after our 7th crash in 30 minutes and said "Daddy, i don't want to play Minecraft anymore".


    so much for quality assurance, so much for a decent update. it broke everything. and no word from the Minecraft people at all about this garbage update of theirs, obviously they cared more about the Xmas holidays then actually releasing a decent update, but they should be ashamed of this. a fix should gave been in place a long time ago for all this..




    when and if they ever fix this so that it works, and the pre-1.22 worlds work too, kids and i will come back. until then, we won't be playing minecraft anymore. we\ll find other games. we've already started telling our friends and families how bad this is right now and encouraging not t buy this game. . hopefully save them some money that they can spend on other family games that actually work.

    to further add to my earlier comments, enchantment tables are broken. before i get into this, any old saves you have, get ready, the nether you knew will not be the same. i loaded up an old world to keep playing with my kids. i went into the nether to do a little quartz gathering and it was brand new. old nether is gone. so matter which game save you use or how old it is, this new 1.22 update has ruined it in some way.


    gold rails only slow down minecarts now, not speed them up.


    the new cow sounds... they need to bring the old ones back.


    but now comes enchantment tables.. so i put a book on to enchant, i brought my lapis as per udpate, and when i highlight the choice, i get "efficiency 1 ..??", "Sharpness 2..??" and "Lure 2 ..??". ok nice i can see what i am getting. but then i take out the book and put in back in, i see the text change, meaning new choices are there, but when i highlight the choices, they are the exact same choices. no matter how many times i have removed and re-added the books, the results is exact same. the text changes to signal new choice, but the choices themselves do not change. i exited the game a dozen times and tried this over and over for about 25 minutes, and no change



    they broke enchantments....



    no matter what we do, something seems to be thown back in our faces. my children, and i are completely disheartened, we've been building our little world and cities for about 5 months as a family project, and now, we can't even continue, my children no longer want to play Minecraft.. and honestly, neither do i. this update rendered this game no longer fun to play . these new changes have literally ruined the game in its current inception.


    until they fix things, if they ever do, and we can get our world back or be able to use our seed # with the new changes, we won't be coming back.


    good job QA....

    Regarding the new PS3 update 1.22....


    impressive all the new biomes and mats... but then that's where my amazement stops.


    i am disappointed at the obvious lack of QA here, and it's apparent. i've create over 20 new worlds so far since the update, only 4 villages found total, no temples of any kind. and most of the worlds had at least 40% of it covered in water. at least if they would add more biomes, could have made the world bigger.


    soon as my auto-save kicks in, and i try to quit the game, the game crashes and i need to restart my PS3. seed ID's are no longer re-usable. my children and i wanted to use our current world and recreate in 1.22 and well, that's when we discovered not a single seed ID from before 1.22 will work in creating new worlds. gets better. if you use a new seed id, and create a new world twice, the worlds won't even be the same.


    sounds are missing and some don't even make sense. if you have something in your hand, doors opening make noise, but closing do not... seriously ?


    from what i am been reading on the web, anyone with servers is having a very very bad time as well. weird part is too, 3 times i have logged in fresh from my PS3, only to get the "accept agreement" each time. seriously ?


    sorry guys, this is a very bad update with good intent, but the QA should be replaced because obviously they did not do their job here. i used to work QA so i know what i am talking about here..


    my kids and i are going back to our old save and using those worlds moving forward, as we're not going to bother creating new worlds since the lack or villages and temples and other things just render it empty and pointless, and for young children, that is no fun at all.


    good luck on your next update but it's time for a rollback.
