Current Snapshot: April 26, 2012 12w17a

http://www.mojang.com/2012/04/minecraft-snapshot-12w17a/

*Added editable books - I am SO excited for this. I can't wait to play with it and see how it is implemented. Hopefully this will allow players to write someone a message without the limitations and publicity of a sign.

*Wooden half slabs in four colors (and they act as wood instead of stone) - When this was posted it was like 1000 men cried out in unison "FINALLY"

*Bug fixing and tweaks, notably about entity collisions, “picking blocks” (creative mode), and chat

*Some other, censored stuff

    So now Ilriyas can actually have a Rarity Clopfic collection that he doesn't know about? Glorious.

    So once this is an official release and is installed on the server, Ilriyas can actually have a Rarity Clopfic collection that he doesn't know about? Glorious.
    FTFY. Glorious indeed!

    Oh God I'm going to have clopfics that are actually officially recognized and allowed by the server itself...

    Clearly this is what Mojang intended.

    Yay for half slabs acting as wood, having to switch from pick to axe every time I made a roof was a lot more annoying than you'd think.

    Oh my gosh, we can actually put clopfics in Ilriyas' house. this is too perfect.

    I bring the Rain to this parade!

    We'll have to see how public the books end up being. I can't have public clopfic on the server. There is a gray area there involving the PG-13 rule.

    Just as long as I don't have to read them...

    Also not that I'm suggesting anything because honestly I don't want clopfics in my castle but can't we just privatize them to individuals the same way we do with doors and chests?
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    That's what I meant by "We'll have to see how public the books end up being."

    The following is in total what I know about writing books in Minecraft currently:

    Assuming they are item entities like any other item entity, you can put it in a locked chest.

    PG13? Smalltime, the clopfics must be dirty, as dirty as Rarity.

    Per a tweet from Dinnerbone:
    Build with halfslabs? Rejoice! It's no longer a song and dance in the next snapshot ;D
    Here's hoping for an easier way to put them "up side down" instead of having to line the above row with blocks first.

    -Digi
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    ....And so it is
    Half slabs, when placed on the upper half of a block's side, [37] will now be placed as top slabs
    also... Tripwires. Tripwires, digest that.

    So much more here: http://www.reddit.com/r/Minecraft/comments/udmvp/minecraft_snapshot_week_22/c4ugrgj

    Tripwires will be pretty big for EPIC Minecraft Hunger Games.
  • ErrorNullTurnipErrorNullTurnip Illinois Icrontian
    I'm glad they're working on bugs now. Can't wait for an official release!
    Also:

    Fixed pressing F reloading the chunks
    Did they take it out or make it bindable? There was talk of removing it due to server performance issues.

    F changes your view distance. I'm guessing it's a bug in the previous snapshots, as you wouldn't want to reload all active chunks every time you did that.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian

    There is official word that they are working heavily on performance related issues to be included in the next update. This will not be a short process and stated this could take a week, 2 weeks or more. Unfortunately what that means is that they will probably not be able to use the features in this snapshot for Epic because that would mean supporting a non official build for everyone involved. Bugs in a competition make for shitty situations.

    Looks like ender chests are being updated to per-player, rather than per map/server. How that's going to work is still a mystery, as it was only a tweet at this point.

    It would be nice if each player on a server had their own network of ender chests.

    I love the new single player LAN with friends mode.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    W 27 snapshot is up. Mostly backround stuff that doesn't necesarily effect game paly. The few things that do are:
    Boats, when broken, now drop boats

    Signs are stackable now

    Crafting them now gives 3 signs instead of 1
    Stack up to 16
