Additions[edit]

Blocks[edit]

Slabs
  • Wooden slabs for each of the four shades of wood added.
    • New block IDs 125 for double wooden slabs and 126 for single wooden slabs.
    • These new slabs no longer act like stone.
    • An axe should be used to break them.
    • They are no longer immune to fire and lava.
    • Wooden slabs created in older versions of Minecraft are still stone-like and fireproof and will not change to the new slabs when placed or mined.

Items[edit]

Book and quills
  • Editable Books – Book and quill, crafted using a book, feather, and ink sac
    • When a book and quill is made, it can be right-clicked to open a screen that allows you to type the book.
    • Pressing “Done" will save whatever was typed and allow you to edit the book again later, yet will not “sign" it.
    • When “signing" a book, it will allow you to choose a title up to 16 characters long and disable editing of the book, the Book and quill then become a written book, with the icon changing along with the label.
Written book
  • Looks the same as a regular book, but has a shine like an enchantment.
  • After being finished, the written book cannot be edited again.
