Talk:Pocket Edition Alpha 0.12.1
Mob Heads In Survival
In a video by JackFrostMiner, an MCPE youtuber, he shows that mob heads can be obtained in survival when a charged creeper kills a zombie/skeleton/creeper. I think this should be added to the page.
- As soon as the protection wears off I will add this to the page. --MarioProtIV (talk) 16:00, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
Windows 10 Edition 0.12.2.0
Where should this version go? We already had a lot of dramas with the initial Windows Edition release, eventually deciding to incorporate it here, but if there are potentially more of these Windows 10 only updates while they are ironing out bugs, should they just go here as sections (like I have done), should they be separate pages under the Pocket Edition name or Windows 10 Edition name? Or should we just highlight information that was released in this update with an asterix or something else? –Goandgoo ᐸ Talk

- I would just move them to a page under the name "Windows 10 Edition 0.12.2.0", similar to what I did with the original release but then that got removed. --MarioProtIV (talk) 14:16, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
- I highly disagree with the move here (0.12.1 has added to and is largely built upon 0.12.0: it is it's own version), and I continue to disagree upon further seperating the two editions-in-name. Rather, list that features are exclusive to a particular OS (all versions carry minor variations and tweaks across the operating systems in which they were released) for that version. -Illidicia (t+c) 15:10, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
- I am building version pages for 0.12.0, 0.12.1, and 0.12.2.0 on my userspace following my disatisfaction with the current layout.

- I disagree with most of these, but the one I am really not fond of is the 0.12.1 page. I think it should stay as is, because all of the builds have been released for 0.12.1, not 0.12.0 or 0.12.2. Because of this, it is better to include the additions from the builds/0.12.0 on the main 0.12.1 page. --MarioProtIV (talk) 16:01, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
- So I just created a few pages in my workbench for the Windows 10 editions, including a template:
- I also agree with Illidicia, these versions are fully the pocket edition, the extra releases are mainly the developers fixing bugs due to the new platform. The developers have also specifically said that they are still the pocket edition, so I see no reason to split (especially since if they are PE, then 0.13/Beta 1.0 will likely be developed together)
- @Goandgoo: Since they are mostly bug fixes, I think placing them here or on their own article is fine. If we choose to go with separate articles (which might be overall cleaner), it would require listing both versions listed in the history section, like has been required to fill the gap between the PS3 and PS4/Vita versions. (basically saying "Added x to Windows 10" and "Added x to all other editions")
- @MarioProtIV: Do not implement a major change after a one day discussion, especially if no one in the discussion has agreed with your implementation. If you want to separate the versions, get consensus first. –KnightMiner t/c 22:02, 11 August 2015 (UTC)
