Minecon Capes (and 1.9 spoilers); Minecraft Meets LittleBigPlanet, & More
Every Minecon, a new cape is given to attendees. The image above shows them chronologically: 2011 Vegas, 2012 Paris, 2013 Orlando, and now, 2015 London! The new cape has a darker greenish-blue hue than the 2013 cape, and sports the iron golem's ever-watchful gaze. Expect to see these capes around very soon!
As if that wasn't enough, Mojang is releasing a free bundle of skins for both Sony and Microsoft consoles. This pack is extra-special because it features Alex and Steve wearing a selection of smart capes.
The Minecon 2015 Skin Pack will be available for just 15 days from the 1st of July onward. You can get it from Xbox Live Marketplace/PSN, be sure to grab it before it disappears! IT IS A LIMITED TIME PACK!
1.9: Still a Lot To Do
Even now, 1.9 is seeing changes in development. As one example: quivers were planned to be added in the new update, but were recently pulled.
This is an example of how non-final the things I've been working on are: I'm removing quivers again. Arrows in off-hand feels more natural.
The amount of arrows held would not change - still a stack, as it has always been - though the bow would prioritize firing arrows in the off-hand before ones stored in the inventory. Having a quiver serve this function was deemed more complicated than necessary, as holding the arrows would take less time than constantly re-arranging them into a quiver, and would provide something of a visual cue on what arrows the player was about to fire, among other things. Will the quiver see a return? Time will tell, even if it technically never saw the light of day.
On the other hand, OSX users have reason to rejoice: Johan Bernhardsson - formerly working on Pocket Edition - is now fully devoted to producing the OSX launcher for Minecraft! Expect more news on this soon!
LittleBigPlanet Meets PS Minecraft
A brand-new mash-up pack featuring Sackboy, Sackgirl OddSock, Toggle, Swoop and many more, is on its way to Minecraft on PlayStation. Mash-up packs are essentially the PlayStation version of a resource pack, letting you change up how the game looks with new skins, textures, music, and more. This one lets you LittleBigPlanet-ify your Minecraft world with resources from Media Molecule’s popular game. It even comes with a pre-built landscape and some catchy tunes taken straight from the game. What more could a Little Big Minecrafter possibly want?
Expect the LBP pack to become available July 1st, for £3.29/€3.99!
Free Updates For All (Consoles)!
Free updates? FREE?! Yes - free updates! On July 1st, all console versions of Minecraft will be updated to version 1.17/TU25/CU14 , bringing a heap of exciting tweaks and additions. Here are a few highlights:
