    Remember when pre-releases where every 1/2 month and you had to manually install them, And nobody complained. Pepperidge farm remembers.

    after going though the process my self of converting my skin, i will note that the template above is inaccurate, the template that you can download above is 256X256, it should be 64X64 (as the old skin template is 64X32), this is easily fixed by scaling it down in GIMP. The top 64X32 of the new skin template is exactley the same as the old, the only differecence is that it only skins the right limbs (as the current sytem skins both limbs with one texture). You could simply past your old skin on the uper half of the template and it would work for currect versions. Though when the update comes, you're left limbs would be colored oddly, as you have to specify the pixels for your left limbs in the new part of the template. This can obviusly fixed by skining your left limbs in the new format, but it won't take effect until the update OR you're using a newer snapshot.

    There's absolutely no reason I would keep updating this game if every time I added something I had to read the profoundly entitled posts on these forums. Ya'll are ungrateful. I've paid over 100 dollars for software that wasn't as frequently updated or supported as Minecraft is. Suck it up and play some other game you paid next to nothing for. If you make mods you're about the only people who can complain about a lack of a mod API. Every other complaint is simply unwarranted and inconsiderate. People ­ing about their onboard graphics card not being able to play twitch, and then complaining about the snapshot not including something they can in turn complain even more about are mind numbingly self absorbed.

    Thanks for keeping this game going, Mojang. Please ignore the children, they don't have any sense of the value of currency since their parents purchased your game for them, or they pirated it.

    you deserve all my respect, mojang could have stopped updating that game at beta 1.7.3, fixed all the bugs and added a mod api, allot of the community would be happy. (although i don't know exactly how that would play out,but it would be interesting to see) actually that would be a good idea, that would be pretty cool to see, BACK to the point, mine craft was released at 1.0, they could have totally stopped, but no, they kept working, and only the best of the community acknowledge and thank them. I remember when there wasn't even snapshots, just those pre releases (betas?, what ever the 1.8 pre's where called), they where the sh_t (excuse my french) , people where clamoring for them, now people complain that mojang even offers their snapshots, (and they're easy to install too!) Sometimes its not the game, but the community.

    hmmmm. im kind of new to all this. does this mean that the download is stable or might crash often but wont brake the minecraft files. Anyway, i think ill wait till the official update so I have more to play with :P

    I doubt the red dragon but they must be working on something big :D I mean, they cant have been spending this long on just creating these small updates, which even though they are awesome, they wouldn't take this long


    snapshots are like the "Build of the week" for minecraft , often times they fix bugs, but new ones appear(often small, not game corrupting ones) . As you can see there are often new features, you can play them by using the (new) launcher. You create a new profile, enable snapshots, and then select "latest version" (which will automatically put you on the latest snapshot). its recommended to choose another directory. (where the default is in your/bla/file/system/.minecraft , you can change it to say Users/Admin/Desktop/MinecraftSnapshots) this means that your servers/worlds/resource packs are completely separate, so if it does break minecraft, it will only effect those files (not your 1.6.4 files). if your going to play one of your worlds, make a back up. (altho you shouldn't yet, considering there is a huge terrain change and they still need to "stich" the old and new terrain) just remember, if you load a new world in the current version all the new stuff will disappear (because it hasn't been added yet!) , Have fun testing!

    is it just me of is Minecraft STARTING TO MAKE sense!!!!!!! NOOOO..... but really , part of the fun of minecraft is "I can punch through solid stone with my fist , your augrument is invaild" i mean come on , bone meal , whyyyyy????? , i remember the first time seeing minecraft in 1.7.3 , and i asked the crap out of minecraft logic , until eventualy, "Logic , aint nobody got time fo dat!!!" and i was like , minecraft doesnt need logic , logic needs Minecraft!!! , i mean with stuff making sense , its losing the "Minecraft Logic" feel, i mean part of bone meal was that it was over powered, this is starting to look like the better than wolves mod (where minecraft has Logic) , i would be fine if the bonemeal was an option that was like /gamerule of something but , bonemeal has been like this for about , what , 30 versions , we havnt seen the need to change its awesomeness.
