The new Minecraft launcher has been teased since 2015, but recent news has revealed that it has now begun rolling out to players across the world. So what’s it all about? How do you get the new launcher? What has changed and what do you have to look forward to? Well, let’s find out! Let this be your guide to the new Minecraft launcher, as sourced from core developers, enthusiasts and my own usage.
Mojang released the new updated 1.8 version of Minecraft a few weeks ago, and there are quite a few things we are all excited about. From armor stands to flags, and new doors to Ocean/Water temples, 1.8 is a feature packed update with tons of new adventures to take, items to craft, and so on. Minecraft rabbits are one of the new mobs added to Minecraft; they are quite the elaborate addition.
The new Minecraft rabbit has 6 natural variants, with one variant obtained using a name tag and one hostile variant, bringing the grand total to 8 variants possible. New drops include rabbit hide, the rare rabbit foot, and food types (raw and cooked rabbit). Rabbit stew will be the second kind of stew added to Minecraft and has been added as part of the 1.8 update.
|Brown Minecraft Rabbit with white underbelly||White Minecraft Rabbit|
|Blonde Minecraft Rabbit||Brown Minecraft Rabbit|
|Black Speckled Minecraft Rabbit||Toast: a Black & White Minecraft Rabbit|
|White with Black Spot Minecraft Rabbit||The Killer Bunny: White Minecraft Rabbit|
Toast is obtained using a nametag renamed “toast”, or a spawn egg renamed “toast”. The Killer Bunny has a change of 1 in 1000 in spawning, and is hostile.
Breeding & Taming Rabbits:
Minecraft rabbits can be bred by using carrots, golden carrots, and dandelions. When a bunny is bred, it is always the color of one of its parents. When taming a Minecraft rabbit, it uses the same mechanics as any other tamable mob. You feed them carrots until they no longer take carrots. Rabbits exhibit the same breeding patterns as pigs. Untamed rabbits behave in similar to those of ocelots. If you move towards a minecraft rabbit too fast, it will get scared and run away. Hold a carrot in your hand, hold shift, and they will come to you.
Minecraft Rabbit Drops:
The rabbits foot is a new drop obtained by killing a rabbit. Its use is for brewing the “Potion of Leaping”
Rabbit hide is dropped from a rabbit upon death. Four rabbit hides arranged into a square in a crafting table output 1 leather.
Raw rabbit is a drop that drops upon the death of a rabbit. When consumed, the player will receive 3 hunger points. Cooked rabbit is obtained when a Minecraft rabbit dies while on fire or when raw rabbit is cooked. Cooked rabbit gives a player 5 hunger points when consumed.
Minecraft rabbits are a very interesting new feature added to 1.8, and I am very happy they were added. The addition of Minecraft rabbits bring new food, potions, and companions. Minecraft rabbits are one of the many features that have been added to 1.8, and they will bring a great new experience to Minecraft.
Do you like building? Getting bored of what minecraft supplies you to make your creations? Well, look forward to the 1.8 update which adds many great blocks that you can use to add detail to some of your builds. These new blocks will brighten up your builds and add small details that will catch the eye to make your build look amazing!
First a good thing to mention about something we’ve been waiting for ages for would be the addition of the ability to craft chiseled stone brick(circle stone), mossy stone bricks and cracked stone brick. These sought after blocks were previously only available in generated structures, now with the easy accessibility of them they are now more survival friendly building blocks.
