MCPE News and a AMA

0.13.2 And 0.14

Hope everyone is having a great 2016!

Last week 0.13.2 was released to fix some bugs and a new skin pack called Journey to the West.

The teams at Mojang and Redmond have been hard at work preparing 0.14. Added to the game are: Hoppers, Droppers, Dispensers, Item Frames, Maps, Witches, Slime blocks, Redstone Repeaters and Comparators, Dyeable Leather Armor, Cauldrons, and Wearable Mob Heads. The beta is currently on build 6. Hopefully 0.14 will fix the performance issues, affecting android and windows phone devices. Since playing MCPE for me via ARBTServer, has been like presenting a slideshow, I welcome these changes.

What will you ask me?

Since my cake day is coming up soon, I thought of celebrating with you all by hosting a AMA (Ask me Anything). Time is TBA, and will be announced on the subreddit and here on the blog also. Be sure to come up with some questions to ask me.

 

Featured Build of the Month: A cottage near spawn

August is drawing to a close and comes with several new faces from WSE, a blip with the website domain, and many amazing builds being built or just getting started on. Today I would like to highlight, a cottage near spawn. The cottage was built by BatMan3054 and the farm was built by Swarmhut. I like the use of bricks as part of the path material, because it really pops against the green of the surrounding grass. I admire how the windows of the building are irregular and somewhat mismatch. The windows of the house make it feel quirky. Stepping … continue

Featured Build of the Month: Hachi’s Base

As July is coming to a close, with it comes exciting news from Minecon, a redesign of the subreddit and many of fun server runs.  FBoM is in its 2nd month and is here to highlight Hachi’s base. The first thing I like about this build is the bottom floor with the checkered pattern used on the bottom floor. The diorite fountains are a nice touch, because they contrast well with the blue stained clay. Going up the large staircase we enter the main room that houses the bedroom, a living room and a small bathroom. A nice detail that … continue

Fixing and Protecting a Village: Part 3

With a somewhat secret sunday run, I decided to continue pecking away with my village project. Unfortunately while preparing for 0.12 in my own world I forgot about making some buildings for the village. So I asked ARBT for some suggestions and she replied with a suggestion for a tavern. So I took the idea and see what I could do with it. This is what I have come up with. Entering the tavern leads us into the main seating area with a bar and grill in opposite corners. But now by now you are wondering what those doors are … continue

Some updates on the upcoming 0.12 release

As we eagerly await 0.12, tommaso teases some of the features and some news. Such as:

  • The togglable crouching “o” button
  • A glowing book in the enchanting table
  • The WIP enchanting interface

Also today he tweeted some news about the 0.12 update

I am glad they chose to continue work getting these features in, rather than getting a half-baked MCPE.
