1.9 Nether Sneak Peek

Discussion in 'General Minecraft Discussion' started by AusQB, Sep 19, 2011.

  1. The release of the final version (1.0) is due to launch concurrently with Minecon on 18-19 November. Before that however, Mojang is working on updating the Beta version one last time with notable changes to the armor system. Jens Bergenstein mentions tweaks to durability and armor value calculation.

  13. Mobs

    • Animal Breeding! Use wheat to breed. Hold wheat in your hand and they all 'should' follow you. Reports of this being a bit buggy. If you hit an animal in heat, it will stop being in heat.
    • Snow Golems attack each other when you try to breed them. And User. Use wheat to make friendly towards you.
    • Endermen now take FOUR standard (non-critical) hits with a diamond sword. Zombies & Zombie pigmen 3.
    • Endermen now instantly teleport away from water. Agro seems to reset after this. They also dodge all arrows and do not die in the sunlight anymore. New sound effect likely to come in the official release of 1.9

    • Chickens avoid lava.


    • Golden apples have a sparkly animation.
    • Golden apple also grants you Regeneration buff for 30 seconds.

    • Ender pearls teleports you with the cost of damage when thrown.
    • Ender perls do not work in MP.

    You can read all about potions HERE.


    • Wood fences now connect to walls. Fences now only take up the space they appear to, as well as attaching to any solid block adjacent to them. This makes walking through diagonal-oriented fences possible.

    • Fences can be placed like normal blocks.
    • Normal fences and nether fences don't connect.
