Additions[edit | edit source]

  • A way for mobs/entities to ride other mobs/entities
    • They no longer dismount upon reload
    • Mobs can now be spawned riding other mobs
    • Allows for a lot of customization
      • An example is a "flying" minecart that can still be rideable by spawning a bat with a minecart on top

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Improved fonts
    • Fonts are now changeable
    • Added HD font support
  • Smooth Lighting can now be changed to Minimum, Maximum & Off
    • Minimum uses the old Smooth Lighting, and Maximum fixes a bug with stairs
  • Animated blocks and items in texture packs now require the animation definition
  • Updated language files
  • Players riding on an entity will keep it when logging off (the entity will disappear along with you) and will still be riding the entity upon logging back on
