      • Endermen are hostile towards them.
      • Will sometimes spawn in place of an Enderman teleporting away.
      • Will despawn after 2 minutes.
      • Will spawn with a 5 percent chance when an Ender pearl lands.
      • Not yet completed - endermites may have something to do with dragon eggs [1]
        • Model will be changed in the next Snapshot [2]

Changes[edit | edit source]

Minecarts
  • Changed minecart physics
    • Minecarts now go faster and farther
    • Improved collision and position handling
    • Minecarts can derail at corners if going too fast, as well as refuse to go uphill
Minecart with Furnace
  • They now give a much greater boost to other minecarts
  • When powered, they can move on non-powered rails without decelerating
Minecart with TNT
  • Minecart with TNT explosions no longer stack.
Fence Gates
  • Show two holes in their item icon.
Mob AI
Debug screen
  • On the right hand side, a display shows up if you are looking at a block, giving various pieces of information and NBT data about it.
  • Looking at a door and redstone shows you the state of the block
    • Door: which way it is facing, if it is open, which half you are looking at, if it is powered, and what side the hinge is
    • Redstone: power direction (up, down, side, none) for all compass directions (north, south, east, west) and power level
  • Not 100% complete, data for a lot of blocks still missing
Blocks
  • Now internally use states instead of metadata
  • Metadata will still be used for a while
  • Block states of the block being looked at will now be displayed on the F3 menu - Examples: redstone, door
  • Internally, metadata no longer needs to be calculated out of the 4 bit data value, instead the values of specified properties can now be easily gotten and set
Block models
  • Converted fence gates, brewing stands
  • Lighting now works with models (most models for some users)
Graphics
  • Dropped items now face the player in all three directions on fast graphics
