Alpha v1.2.0, the first release of the Halloween Update, is the first version of Alpha v1.2. It was released on October 30, 2010, adding the Nether along with new Nether-exclusive mobs and blocks. It also added fishing, a new terrain generator, and other changes and fixes. This version is not available in the launcher; attempting to play it downloads Alpha v1.2.0_02 instead.[1]

Additions[edit]

  • The Nether
    • A "Hell" world that can be used for quick travel.
  • New music tracks

Changes[edit]

  • Higher lighting values are required the deeper they are to keep mobs from spawning.
  • Stairs, crafting tables, chests, and furnaces now face the same direction as the player when placed.
  • Sunrise now creates a red glow at the horizon.
  • Pressing F1 hides the HUD and the viewmodel from the person's view. In third person mode, pressing F1 will create a view looking back at the player's own face.
