Flying in survival Minecraft may sound like something out of a mod, but snapshot 15w41a introduced a new item that may do just that: the Elytra. This item, a set of wings like a bug’s (Elytra are the fore wings of beetles), allows player to glide through the world, opening up all new possibilities for Minecraft players.
In the upcoming 1.8 update, Mojang will be introducing the new Ocean Monuments. Highly requested, the monuments will make ocean exploring a lot more interesting. They will be the only place to find some of the new content 1.8 has to offer, so make sure you are ready to face the endless blueness of the Minecraft oceans to find the rare Ocean Monuments!
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.
