Pocket Edition mentioned features

From Minecraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Many features have been mentioned for inclusion in the Pocket Edition.

Note that this page only documents features that were mentioned but are not yet in the game. Features in development versions are described on the parent version page.

Far biome

A version exclusive Far biome, found at the edge of finite worlds was going to be implemented in 0.9.0 but got delayed.[1][2][3][4]

Biome-based difficulty

Tommaso stated on reddit that he would like to add a "difficulty" number that mobs could have depending on their circumstances, such as resource that it spawns from and weather.[5] This would vary the amount of hostile mobs at night and the amount of recources gained from each biome. He also stated that he would like more biome-specific mobs as well as biomes with specific difficulty/mob distributions.

This was partially added with the feature of spiders spawning from leaves.

Other world sizes

Tomasso stated on reddit that there may be other limited world sizes in addition to the current Old world type (256x256). These world sizes could be 1000x1000 and 10000x10000. It is possible that these world sizes will come with realms and can only be used in realms.[6]

From the PC version

The developers have mentioned many features from the PC version which will eventually be included in the Pocket Edition.
