    • Added bonus chest option to create world screen.
    • Added bonus chests, which, when enabled, start the user off with a chest nearby containing toolsand blocks helpful to starting a survival game. It can contain:
      • Wood Logs
      • Wooden Planks
      • Stone and wooden pickaxe
      • Stone and Wooden axe
      • Bread
      • Red apples
    • Added option to enable single-player commands to create world screen.
      • Added several cheats: /gamemode, /toggledownfall, /time, /give, /xp, /kill.
      • Typing / then pressing TAB will show a list of available commands.
      • These commands are enabled in previously generated creative mode-worlds.
    • Updated language files.
    • Bug fixing and tweaks.
    Notable bugs:
    • Even with "Allow Cheats" turned off in Single Player, one can still use the commands.
    • Respawning in a random area of the map.

  2. Bonus chest option?
  3. I'm at work. I will test it out at home when I get the chance...
    I am going to see the wiki now to see what is listed there...
  4. Will post screenshots.
  5. Basically, it is starting inventory but randomized...
  6. Best Minecraft Servers

    There are 2 new options. Allows cheats: and bonus chest.

    Bonus Chest

    When you spawn in the world. There will be a chest within about 5 blocks of you.

  7. I am very curious as to how the demo mode will work. Will it let you play on servers? Will it be limited to time?

  8. I imagine it will be like the PC gamer demo, 90 minutes, Single player only.

  10. In my opinion, It's about time they added a demo, I only bought MC because I played the demo.
  11. How did you play the demo if they didn't make it until now? :p
  12. Will this run on EMC? Not the cheats or chest but just the snapshot. I don't want to install it if it won't run.

  13. You'll just have to try =P I haven't heard anything about new items yet... so it MIGHT
  14. It does not.
  15. It doesn't connect to servers running 1.2.5 because it adds a new terrain generation feature (bonus chests) and cheat options. These effect the core files and nothing can be done to make it work until the official release.
    I would rather not allow players the option to join the server with SPC options until it is definitively blocked from SMP.
  16. I don't think they are enabled for SMP... It's an option for SP. I don't think Mojang would make such a huge mistake like that.
  17. I would hope not, but it wouldn't surprise me if they made such a grave mistake...
    They don't have the most positive track record when it comes to MP so far...

  18. I trust them so far
  19. This is cool so you could go on survival, switch to creative, make a huge castle, and then switch back. It seems like they're giving noobs the advantage and hardworking players are disregarded.
