  • White Sheep JE1.png Sheep
    • Drop 1-3 wool when hit.
    • Drop 0-2 mushrooms when killed.
    • Reward the player with 10 points when killed.
    • Technically unused as the survival variant of 0.28 went unreleased (albeit most likely compiled at one point).
  • Obsidian JE1 BE1.png Obsidian
    • Very durable.
    • Drops 1 cobblestone block when mined.


  • Light Gray Cloth JE2.png Dark Gray Cloth JE2.png Dark and Light Gray Cloth are now darker.
  • Added the ability to change gamemodes via an internal value, allowing for creative mode versions to be created again.
  • Altered the level saving/loading code.
  • Added Ores, Stone Slabs, Iron and Gold Blocks, Bricks, Bookshelves, Moss Stone, and TNT to the creative inventory.
  • Re-added menu and death screen shading.
  • When the player stands near/inside another player, it pushes the player away slightly.
    • It's possible to walk through a player, but it feels slightly "solid".
  • Higher FPS.
  • Left-click removes a block.
  • Right-click adds a block.
Survival Mode
  • Only sheep will spawn.
    • Other mobs can still exist and still function as normal.
  • TNT disappears upon detonation.
  • Blocks do not drop items (although sheep still do).
  • W.I.P survival multiplayer.


  • Fixed a bug where the Pick Block feature did not work.
  • Fixed exploit where someone logging in with an illegal name would cause players to disconnect.
  • Looking at glass now makes glass textures directly behind it disappear once again.[verify]
