Scrolls just got a massive patch! Extra fun included

arbalestier

Hey!

I thought it was worth mentioning that Scrolls has just received a massive patch. All kinds of things have been improved, added, and tweaked. It’s more fun than it’s ever been before!

Gary has written a great post outlining all the changes over at Scrolls.com. Give it a read, eh?

Oh, and if you haven’t bought Scrolls yet, click here to download the demo. It’s a happy bundle of fun.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Minecraft 1.8.3 is now available

Update: due to a serious bug in the Minecraft 1.8.2 server, we released an update to Minecraft 1.8.3
It’s now available through the Minecraft launcher.

Minecraft Village

Finally, after many weeks of development and seven pre-releases, Minecraft 1.8.2 is ready for release. It is now available in the Minecraft launcher and the server can be downloaded from the Minecraft website download page.

Only minor changes were made since pre-release 7 which was available since Monday. Version 1.8.2 is also fully compatible with all previous server versions (1.8 and 1.8.1), but we recommend to update to 1.8.2 as soon as possible to benefit from all bug fixes and improvements we made in the game.

Happy Holidays
The longest running series of pre-releases is airing its final episode today.

We are getting close to the release of Minecraft 1.8.2, here is just one more snapshot to make sure we did not break anything with our latest bugfixes and performance tweaks. If everything goes as planned, version 1.8.2 will be released on Thursday, 19th of February 2015.

These issues were solved in this pre-release:

  • [Bug MC-57691] – Water generates above sea level as part of ocean monument generation
  • [Bug MC-63370] – Baby Cows are Milkable
  • [Bug MC-66090] – TNT is no longer colliding with a block placed above it when the TNT is triggered
  • [Bug MC-67150] – Ocean Monument cuts unnaturally into ocean floor
  • [Bug MC-72574] – /stats command doesn’t work on players who aren’t op
  • [Bug MC-77047] – Fullscreen Mouse Out-Of-Bounds Behavior

To get pre-releases, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “pre-releases” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog).

MINECON 2015 announced!

MINECON

It’s time again to announce the next MINECON!

If you like Minecraft, and you like people who like Minecraft, you’ll probably like MINECON. It’s THE place to see all the cool Mojangstas you fancy, meet people who love Minecraft maybe even as much as you do, and attend panels and events full of YouTube creators and a ton of other talented folks!

This summer we are heading to London, UK to hang out with 10,000 of our closest friends (hint: that’s you!). As usual there will be panels, contests, tournaments, events and a soon-to-be-announced show-of-some-sort for our Saturday night bash.

WHEN: July 4-5, 2015

WHERE: ExCeL London Exhibition and Conference Centre

WHO: You, hopefully!

Since you’re bound to have more questions, I’ll ask myself some in this handy Q&A:

How do I get tickets?
Ticket sales will happen in February, exact date and time will be announced in the next two weeks. You’ll head to minecon.mojang.com to purchase them, but they will go fast! To accommodate different people’s schedules, they will be released in two batches on the same day, different times, 5,000 tickets in each batch. When you buy your ticket you’ll also get access to our discounted hotel pricing, so don’t go booking a hotel room just yet!

How do I become a volunteer (aka MINECON Agent)?
So you want to be a part of the event? We will be taking volunteer submissions next week. You’ll fill out an online form and we will get back to you before tickets go on sale. Watch mojang.com for more details.

I have a great idea for a panel, how can I make it happen?
Our community submitted panels have been some of the best panels we’ve had! Panel submissions will begin in early March. You’ll need to fill out an online form about the panel, who would be best on it, and submit a video of yourself describing the panel and why it should be at MINECON.

I want to exhibit at MINECON. How do I get a booth?
Each year we have a nice selection of awesome exhibitors, and you could be one of them! You can contact us via minecon@mojang.com for exhibition booth requests.

More details and information will be coming in the next couple weeks, keep watching mojang.com for all the answers you seek!

Thanks for reading!
