Well, it's time for another wait. They released the pre-release of 1.7 the other day so I guess 1.7 is on its way. At least we can look forward to that, right?

Minecraft 1.7.1: The Update that Changed the World (Updated!)
by Dinnerbone on October 22, 2013


Update: Pre-release 1.7.1 has been released to address some serious crashes, including the inability to start on some Linux computers.

It feels like we’ve been working on this for a year now, with more than half a million lines of code changed over 1,104 commits we’ve been working extremely hard on this update. We’re calling this one “The update that changed the world”, because it really has in two different ways; there’s over twice the amount of ingame biomes, and we’ve overhauled lots of the code preparing for the plugin API.

Here’s a list of cool things that may be coming your way on Friday, if the pre-release goes well!

New world generation!
Double the amount of biomes, with new trees/flowers/blocks.
New “Amplified” world option.
Less ocean, more awesome.
New blocks!
Two new types of wood.
Stained glass! With both blocks and panes.
Packed ice, red sand, podzol.
Lots of new flowers, including double-tall versions of current plants.
Portals can be bigger sizes!
Fishing!
Added more type of fish.
Redone the fishing mechanics. Can now catch junk and treasure too.
Fishing rod enchantments!
Maps!
Put them in an item frame and hang them on your wall. They’re extra big!
Lots of new colours for lots of blocks!
Now with less lag!
Achievement & Statistics overhaul!
Now both world (or server) specific.
In multiplayer, it’s announced to everybody when you get an achievement.
You can move your mouse over this in the chat to see what it was!
Some new achievements and statistic types were added.
Zoomable achievements screen!
Multiplayer enhancements!
Servers can now put a 64×64 image called “server-icon.png” in their folder, that you will see on your server list.
You can see who’s online before joining a server; move your mouse over the player count!
Lots of hidden preparation for allowing name changes.
Resource pack changes!
You can now have multiple selected.
They can completely re-do your sounds, adding new ones or changing current ones.
Servers can now recommend a resource pack for you to use.
Chat & command improvements!
New commands to spawn mobs or blocks of any type.
Command block minecart!
Clickable links to achievements and items.
Click on somebody’s name in the chat to message them!
Lots and lots of technical work!
Completely rewrote how the network (multiplayer) works.
Completely rewrote the sound manager.
New graphics options.
Basic shader support testing.

Yeah, but I think advertising is against the rules still.


I wasn't trying to advertise, I was just giving you (and anyone else) a heads up about Team Extreme.

now by that, does that mean your cracked? if you are, I have a great cracked launcher for you! it also has a username/email password option for payed users that just like the TEAM EXTREME launcher's look better. (also has technic and FTB versions I haven't tested yet)

I will stick to being virus-free. Also, isn't advertising like this against the rules?


These don't got viruses herp-derp! I'm friends use them and MBAM says they are save when I do a scan on them.

I play 1.5.2 because I play offline, and I don't get any lag unless I'm recording a big build!

Funny thing, people have been asking for new biomes and the stuff of which 1.7 is filled with. Now... now they are complaining about it...

I haven't really played minecraft in a while but I am liking the idea of a sprint button, I hope there will be a similar button for flying, It will help those who lag a lot which prevented them from sprint or flying properly, so a specific button will be a great addition in my opinion!

I already miss the old days...

These new biomes are completely overrated. I personally think the roofed forest was too much. Those giant mushrooms look so dumb and give it a fantasy feel. I like the fishing update though, as well as the savanna.

As far as the new textures go, they could use quite a bit of work. Especially the Acacia logs. I do think the puffer fish is adorable though

I love the ability for massive spruce trees too.

Anyways, these are just some of my opinions. Don't get all upset because Im trashing the new update. I just think it could have been better.

I can't wait for people to complain about how much they hate the new update and how they miss the old days.

You're not gonna get that from me. For two reasons!
1.I'm new.
2.I think every update makes this better!
3.A lot less bugs!
Wait, that's 3 reasons! Well, I rest my case.
