  • Has the player's shadows.


  • Added dynamic lighting.
  • There are 9 different light levels.
  • Oddly, blocks in the inventory and hotbar are affected by lighting - depending on how much light is in the area you're in, inventory/hotbar blocks will appear darker or lighter.



  • This version, as well as 20091223-2, is in Creative mode.
    • Survival mode can be added back via modding as always, however.
  • Multiplayer was made partially inaccessible (although the multiplayer code still exists and can be re-enabled).
    • Connecting to a multiplayer server will cause players to spawn in a bedrock cube.
    • The game will act as if it is in Singleplayer – chat is inaccessible and the player list cannot be opened.
