The newest Minecraft update, which the game for some motive calls snapshots, is generally routine: Centered on smithing, squishing a number of bugs, tweaking a number of parameters. Then one of the vital standard and extensively performed video games on the planet says it is lastly managed to take care of a bug that was first observed 11 years in the past.

Take a bow MC-1133, which isn’t a minor Halo character however the identify given to this explicit gremlin. This bug prevented gamers from listening to footsteps when their avatar bought too near the sting of a block in Minecraft. The game would get confused concerning the avatar’s relative place, assume it was one way or the other in mid-air relatively than on stable floor, and thus strolling when on this place made no sound.

No extra. As regards to MC-1133, Mojang says it is now the case that “Whether or not or not a participant experiences some impact is calculated based mostly on the block below the middle of the participant.” Footsteps are again child! Going into barely extra element, the patch notes add:

  • Strolling on a block will now all the time play a step sound
  • It was beforehand not the case for those who have been strolling alongside the sting of a block with air or fluid moreover it
  • Strolling on the ocean ground will produce a step sound for the block you’re strolling on at a decrease quantity and pitch

I am unsure whether or not the final level associated to MC-1133 however, given this little man survived 11 years, let’s give it the credit score.

Different adjustments imply gamers now not require a smithing template within the template slot, and the jukebox has been added to the Redstone Blocks artistic tab. It additionally incorporates this notice about Journey mode which I discover fairly mystifying: “Learn the ability sign of a Chiseled Bookshelf utilizing a Comparator.”

Minecraft has most just lately been within the information for one thing way more unbelievable than a bug with some longevity: Navy secrets and techniques leaked on a Discord referring to the game. Sure, actually. It is a far cry from the harmless days of speedrunning scandals. The game’s long-awaited spinoff Minecraft Legends additionally launched just lately though, erm, perhaps the much less mentioned about that one the higher.
