New Minecraft Update

Hey gang- sorry for being MIA for a day or so. Got a lot of work to do before the Thanksgiving holiday. :(


So I want to talk today about the newest update. One of the biggest additions was the support of Custom Texture Packs.

A lot of the updates are intended to running the multiplayer smoother- which I can confirm, as one of the servers I play on is working a lot better, especially the mincarts and boats.

Notch also added an option for no-animals, which I guess can be useful, especially now that I can have the option not to have pigs knock me down into my shaft and kill me.



These guys on the other hand...

  11. It's not a skin - well it can be used as one - but its a Zombie Pigman- a very dangerous enemy mob.
