Talk:Bedrock Edition beta add-on documentation

From Minecraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Outdated documentation page in this wiki. Please support to the final format of v1.8.0.14, which the format version is '1.8.0' instead of '1.8.0-beta.1'.[edit]

Minecraft: Bedrock Edition v1.8.0.14 is now a final release of addon format, it uses '1.8.0' as their new format version instead of '1.8.0-beta.1'. Please make a new final addon documentation. Thank you. Haqqi Taken (talk) 09:00, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

Note please based on the v1.8.0.14 addon format. Is now a (final) release. Many changes to the MoLang format, such as 'Entity.Flags.BABY' is now 'query.is_baby'! Haqqi Taken (talk) 09:03, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

I do not really like the other users say '1.8.0.14 is a bug' Haqqi Taken (talk) 09:33, 9 November 2018 (UTC)

I think you're asking Mojang to keep the beta documentation up to date with the betas as they're released. I don't think you realize how much work that would require. Keeping up to date with beta changes would be like chasing lightning: You never know for certain where it's going to go next, and by the time you catch up to one there have already been a whole bunch more. There just isn't enough time to keep updating a big technical document like this; it's too much work to do in a single beta cycle.
Remember that Mojang releases beta documentation to help you get started on designing future add-ons and writing some prototype code. It's not meant for you to make finished, tested add-ons, either for the beta (those aren't supported) or even the final release (the documentation warns you right at the top that the final documentation may require you to make additional changes in your add-ons). – Auldrick (talk · contribs) 19:02, 9 November 2018 (UTC)


Umm, not actually, the documentation page in this wiki needs to update, not the beta that has been updated. Also i mispelled the sectence. You actually need to understand that the Documentation page has to update to refer the lastest version 1.8.0.14 format, not suggesting it to the Minecraft beta or Mojang! Actually, i know how much Mojang works as much as the developers are. So, what are you posting is maybe in-topic reply, but not related to my problem, because i talked not about suggestions.

Oh, i have do some inspection in the Minecraft v1.8.0.14 beta files, so i compare for the old and new format: Example Server Entity for Area Effect Cloud in the '1.8.0' format version:

'1.8.0' (1.8.0.14):

{
  "format_version": "1.8.0",
  "minecraft:entity": {
    "description": {
      "identifier": "minecraft:area_effect_cloud",
      "is_spawnable": false,
      "is_summonable": false,
      "is_experimental": false
    },

    "components": {
      "minecraft:physics": {
        "has_collision": false
      }
    }
  }
}

'1.8.0-beta.1' (1.8.0.81.8.0.13):

{
  "format_version": "1.8.0-beta.1",
  "minecraft:entity": {
    "description": {
      "identifier": "minecraft:area_effect_cloud",
      "minecraft:spawn_egg": {
        "value": false
      },
      "minecraft:is_summonable": {
        "value": false
      },
      "minecraft:is_experimental": {
        "value": false
      }
    },

    "components": {
      "minecraft:physics": {
        "has_collision": false
      }
    }
  }
}

The Data Driven Animation, i looked up for and compare the animation format in Pig:

'1.8.0' (1.8.0.14):

{
  "format_version": "1.8.0",
  "animations": {
    "animation.pig.setup": {
      "loop": true,
      "bones": {
        "body": {
          "rotation": [ "-this", 0.0, 0.0 ]
        }
      }
    },
    "animation.pig.baby_transform": {
      "loop": true,
      "bones": {
        "head": {
          "scale": 2.0,
          "position": [ 0.0, 8.0, 4.0 ]
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

'1.8.0-beta.1' (1.8.0.8 – 1.8.0.13):

{   
  "format_version": "1.8.0-beta.1",
  "animations": {
    "animation.pig.setup": {
      "loop": true,
          "bones": {
            "body": {
          "rotation": [ "-this", 0.0, 0.0 ]
        }       
      }
    },
    "animation.pig.idle": {       
      "loop": true, 
          "bones": {
        "head": { 
          "rotation": [ "Math.cos(Params.AnimTime * 38.17) * 2.0 + Math.cos(Params.AnimTime * 27.0) * 2.0", "Math.cos(Params.AnimTime * 15.1) * 4.0", 0.0 ] 
        }
      }     
    },     
    "animation.pig.baby_transform": {       
      "loop": true,
          "bones": {         
        "head": {          
          "scale": 2.0, "position": [ 0.0, 8.0, 4.0 ]         
        }       
      }     
    }   
  } 
}
