  • New server configuration settings
    • pvp <true/false> (true by default). If this is set to false, players cannot directly attack other players (i.e. by hitting them or shooting them with a bow; things like lava will still damage them).
    • spawn-monsters <true/false> (true by default). If this is set to false, all hostile mobs will be removed and they cannot spawn.
    • spawn-animals <true/false> (true by default). If this is set to false, all passive mobs will be removed and they cannot spawn.


  • Players and mobs on fire in multiplayer now visibly on fire.
  • Damage is now correctly given for falling, drowning, and burning.
  • Eating food restores health.
  • Players can now respawn.


  • Fixed a block respawning bug in multiplayer.
