Default Another patch breaking MC

Hi,
at least for me the new patch gives a malformed byte error when communicating with either of the servers we have. Patch days are such fun!
Sigh.

yup.


Some of the new things look nice. For those that were worried the new water mob is a passive one.

I'd say it's 99.99% likely that the servers arent updated to version 1.2 yet.
Notch did say that the servers needs to be updated as well. So I'd be more surprised if it DID work.

I don't know if I would recommend us to update the servers :-/

This is what the map generator does for me in singleplayer:


Notice how the chunks don't relate to their neighbours at all resulting in a totally messed up environment.

It was also REALLY laggy when new data was created, I wouldn't recommend using it.

Edit: The wierd map chunks seem to only happen when created from an old map though, not from new maps, but as we have old maps we would still have the problem. And of course, the lag is there still.

Edit2: Appearantly the lag is due to debug code being left in. This will be fixed tomorrow, but there is a temp fix in this thread: http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewto...=1020&t=135556

Figured was the case.

Wwas reading up on the dye. you can color the wool while its still on a sheep So you can get a little more colored blocks that from crafting.

The secret useful block is the "dispenser". It's a block that shoots stuff (arrows, eggs, snowballs depending on what you load in it) when you activate it with a redstone trigger
You can make traps and stuff with it.
Actually it seems to be able to dispence anything. Blocks, tools, why not boats or minecarts for automated stations (although it can't collect them again)

Another interesting thing I heard was that spiders now appearantly can climb walls. Yey for building an underground base that has no walls they can climb

Oh, and the dyes you get from different sources, the black one from the water mobs, the red and yellow from flowers. I don't know where the other colors come from. And sheeps appear both as black gray and white now.

That's seriously messed up.
Two options for me (arachnophobic) :
1: Dont play
2: Always wear brown leather armour - hide the mess.

Good list on the wiki:
Wool Dyes - Minecraft Wiki

Think this will be a big help. I know I ran out of coal for a bit on smp. Found a nice supply, but next time mmm charcoal.

Quote:
Charcoal

Charcoal was an addition to Minecraft in version Beta 1.2. Using Wood in a furnace creates Charcoal, which has the same uses as Coal, including making torches, and smelting objects. This will undoubtedly make it easier to survive your first night as you only need two wood to make charcoal (one for fuel and one for the actual smelting). Charcoal does not stack with Coal.

ooo

Tools made out of stone and wood are now twice as durable.

The water mobs are squids... friendly though. When killed, they drop an ink sack which is required to make grey wools. I'm glad to see that Obsi can finally redecorate her buildings in purple.
