Notch Himself Previews 1.8

Now this is what I call The Word of Notch. The man himself gives a quick, 8 minute tour of some of the changes we can expect in the 1.8, which we can expect in the next couple of weeks:



Of course creative mode is back and we get a quick look at that. There are some huge improvements. For single-player mod lovers, it might look a lot like survival mode with Too Many Items and Single Player Commands installed, as far as full "creative" access to world editing but with more of a "living, breathing" world to inhabit than the relatively sterile (and now defunct) classic mode.

And although it's "The Adventure Update" we don't say good bye to survival. But there are changes and tweaks. Check out the video and decide for yourself what kind of potential the new terrain and combat features have got for your Minecraft experience. But why are you listening to me? You're not still reading this are you? There's a video up there with a Let's Play Minecraft 1.8 hosted by Notch in it, for corn's sake. Why have you not clicked on it?

    Wow, this is finally an update that I can get behind! Creative mode is cool, but not for me…However,

    The biome updates look badasssssss…finally plains, deserts, NPC towns…not to mention a more dished-out fighting experience! Badassery :)

    I’m looking into multiworld. There’s no way to just bork all we’ve done…but if anything we should consider moving spawn, or multi-world…something to mix fresh map with history.

    Yeah Adventure Mode looks a-fucking-mazing. I think multi-world is the only option. The world is already so large moving spawn probably won’t work…. but there’s the consideration of how much more resource user there would be with multi-world. Also, anyone else notice that the area Notch was in looks pretty reminiscent of -25k?
