Based on Twitter traffic, it seem that this is a (now) known bug, and will be addressed.

  • Added up-side-down stairs
  • Many changes to the world and lighting system
The new mob is


The new upside-down stairs:



There is also an accidental debugging feature included. If you press 'm' or 'n' you can rotate the camera angle.

Now the 256 block type limitation has been addressed (now 4096), we will see a heap of new blocks added in coming releases.

I believe that it is probably more aimed at the mods so that mods can make their own textures and items etc rather than needing to write over existing ones.

BTW, the new golem is inspired by the creatures from Castle in the Sky. A rumour is that they even give flowers to village children.

Always short of iron for my railways. As Golems respawn, they will be great to farm for ingots.

This may change. Yes, people have already designed golem factories that spawn iron golems, kill them, then respawn them. However, since this is a snapshot, Jens and Jon may change this so that the factories aren't so beneficial. Personally I think they should give less and only respawn at sunset or dawn.

Upside-down half blocks are being developed too. They might get finished in time for next week's snapshot/1.2 release/whatever it is.

The upside down half blocks are interesting as they essentially mean you'll be able to build full height blocks at half the height offset of normal blocks (if you combine a half block and an upside down half block).
