Notable Bugs

  • Entering an exit End Portal will cause the player to spawn in an Overworld void with an empty inventory, and the game crashes after the player hits an invisible floor. This void looks the same as the one a PC player sees when teleporting to unexplored land (the blue blankness before the world resolves) however if the player is in creative and flies (thus never hitting the invisible floor) the world never resolves no matter how long the player waits. So essentially going to The End in TU13 renders that map unusable.
  • Hand animation while holding blocks or items is somewhat glitched while placing and breaking blocks or hurting mobs.
  • When the player dies the game sometimes crashes.
  • When players exit a level game crashes.
  • Biomes in old worlds may change to make room for the Jungle biome. (The biome will change, spawning cats, but no terrain will change unless it hasn't been explored before) (No planned fixes yet)
  • When a certain distance from chests the lock will disappear until you get closer.
  • For some reason if you have a nether portal placed above the original height limit, when you exit from the nether it will spawn and exit you from a portal somewhere else.
  • Iron Golems refuse to attack players even when their creator is attacked.
  • chests may become invisible unless reopened.
  • iron doors make wood door opening closing sound when trying to open with your fist.
  • ( to prevent a crash ) Save your world before exiting and saving, then exit with out saving. There shouldn't be any crashes.
  • When sneaking on a block in a cave in a lava pit, sneak walking toward the lava will set the player on fire with out the player being in the lava
  • When sprinting in a cave 1 block wide, the player sometimes goes through the block,
  • the fall hack. when you fall off of a tall building and exit the world as you fall rejoining will make the player deal no damage while the fall comes to an end.
  • Magma cubes rarely drop any magma cream upon death
  • Arrows from a bow cannot activate wooden buttons.
  • Piston texture is partially glitched, and can reduce your redstone performance.
  • When farming animals they sometimes get sucked into the ground or in the fence.
  • When a player is killed by the impact of a fire charge from a dispenser the death message reads:"{playername} was fireballed by"

You can see chests through walls when approaching a building.
