0.12 sprite[edit]

Would it be necessary if I change the sprite for 0.12 to hunger since it's another major feature in the update, or is leaving it at the nether portal sprite more soothing --MarioProtIV (talk) 00:21, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

While both are major features, the Nether is likely the more anticipated feature for most users, so I would leave the portal as the icon. KnightMiner t/c 01:58, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

0.11 sprite[edit]

What sprite is more pleasing for 0.11?

  • Boat - current sprite
  • Fishing rod - signifies the addition of fishing (with the exclusive bobber)
  • The Player - shows the addition of skins
  • Speed particle - shows the addition of status effects
  • World boundary - shows the new ability to expand old worlds into infinite
  • Sign - the addition of languages in MCPE
  • Cave spider - addition of cave spiders
  • Squid - addition of squids and also the exclusive baby squid and "ink" cloud

Thoughts? --MarioProtIV (talk) 16:09, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

Windows 10 only updates[edit]

Because of the way some of the updates to Windows 10 are ordered, they are being placed in the same slot as the 0.x versions for MCPE, which I find misleading and inconsistent. My suggestion is either to add a section at the top for Windows 10 only updates, like this:

Each 0.1x.0 version that is only on Windows 10 is in bold to not have confusion with 0.1x.0.x. Or, we could not add it, but instead create a separate template for this, shown below:

Please let me know what you think. --MarioProtIV (talk) 23:02, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

I believe this looks much neater and is in better accordance with the style guide. TySkyo (talk) 19:54, 12 August 2015 (UTC)


@TySkyo: What do you mean, "style guide"? Did you actually read it? It says nothing about nav box designs.
As for splitting, I have stated in the past that I oppose splitting them, and my mind is not changed by discussing this in a fourth place. Dinoguy has also now stated that he'd like all further discussion on this topic to be moved to MCT:PORTAL#Pocket Edition Alpha 0.12. KnightMiner t/c 20:31, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

"Consistent with other updates"[edit]

@MarioProtIV: Can you please explain how marking the Windows 10 Edition updates (and not marking any other exclusive updates), along with placing updates out of both numerical and chronological order (unlike all other updates) is "more consistent with other updates". KnightMiner t/c 16:12, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

The italics I don't really know why I did that, but for the order, it doesnt seem proper to have a minor version on top, major in the middle, and minor again at the bottom. --MarioProtIV (talk) 16:27, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
This conversation came to my attention as a result of your unexplained revert of my changes for the second time here.
@MarioProtIV: 0.12.0 was not a minor release. In fact, 0.12.1 was built upon it and, with the addition of a proper mobile interface and other universal tweaks, was released for Windows 10 following 0.12.0. 0.12.0.1 utilized many features from the 0.12.1 beta, but still preceded the release of 0.12.1 for the Windows 10 Edition.
Illidicia (t+c) 13:46, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
If there are no further objections, I will reorder the 0.12 versions by release, in ascending order. ―Illidicia (t+c) 20:39, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Unneeded versions line[edit]

I honestly don't see a reason to include the "Versions" line in the version navbox, as it can simply be in the PE info template. As for PC that's different because of the way it is styled. --MarioProtIV (talk) 17:15, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Because this navbox is "Pocket Edition versions", so why not include versions? It is useful enough information and fits well along side other links like the development cycle, plus the PC template includes it (of which styling is not a reason to remove the content, especially since the only differences in styling are the Computer edition has a few extra types of updates and collapsible development stages)
Also, if you think the other versions shouldn't be there, why do you leave the Windows 10 link? It either should say as a version, or be removed as a version, as you can hardly argue it is a separate development cycle after it getting the same 0.13.0 build as the rest of PE. KnightMiner t/c 04:59, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

0.15 section[edit]

Since the 0.15 builds are gonna be in two phases, I think making the 0.15 part split into two subsections, listing the builds for the Realms phase on top, while the main builds would be in the subsection below.

Thoughts? If this was put into effect, it would only be after the main builds start coming out. --MarioProtIV (talk) 21:02, 18 April 2016 (UTC)

Would like an opinion on this soon imo. --MarioProtIV (talk) 22:47, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

0.16 sprite[edit]

What should the sprite be? I'm thinking either ocean monuments, guardian or wither since they are all big features. MarioProtIV (talk) 04:20, 25 September 2016 (UTC)

 Agree with the Wither Idea (). Ocean monuments are a major addition, but (at least in my opinion) would clash with the other sprites. ObserverRejectedGraphics.jpg TySkyo (TalkContribs) 20:59, 26 September 2016 (UTC)

1.0 sprite[edit]

Ender Dragon , Ender Pearl or something else? – DelboyDylan (talk|contribs) 16:51, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

I vote for the Ender dragon sprite. --SamGamgee55 (talk) 22:15, 13 November 2016 (UTC)
I vote Ender dragon too. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 03:11, 14 November 2016 (UTC)
I vote ender dragon. Let's do that since 4 say ender dragon --Wyatt2050 (talk) 11:29, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

1.1 sprite[edit]

(The timing may be early…) I support Llama, what does everyone else think?--Beans1512Talk/Contribs 07:05, 14 April 2017 (UTC)

I like llama as well – Sealbudsman talk/contr 11:26, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
( ◠‿◠ )--Beans1512Talk/Contribs 11:41, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
My vote is the map sprite (like the one for 1.11)--SamGamgee55 (talk) 15:58, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
Done! Storymodefan0315 (talk) 16:24, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
@SamGamgee55: I think it is strange that it is the same as other editions.
@Storymodefan0315: Is not it too early to decide?--Beans1512Talk/Contribs 16:27, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
There are already multiple development versions. If anything unknown is added, it would not be major enough to use as a sprite.
The update is called the Discovery Update, and I would consider explorer maps a tool for discovering new land. The BlobsPaper.png 13:51, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
 Agree: I support the woodland explorer maps.--Beans1512Talk/Contribs 01:41, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
 Done The BlobsPaper.png 02:34, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
@Beans1512: I notice you are removing the sprite because the version has not been released yet. Can you explain more? The BlobsPaper.png 03:22, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
This story will be another edition, when I added glazed terracotta to Template:Computer versions as sprite of PC 1.12, I was asked Sealbudsman to delete the sprite because "1.12 has not been released yet". I deleted the sprite of MCPE 1.1 in imitation it.--Beans1512Talk/Contribs 03:30, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

┌──────────────────────────┘
some versions ago, there used to be edit wars over these sprites. At some point I created a talk page entry and basically told people, please, talk it over. And with the next version people liked that I guess so they did it again. And so there grew up a tradition of voting on the sprite, and talking about it, and waiting until the release before the sprite went live.

That's how that started.

It doesn't really have to be that way. We could put sprites up early, there's no rule against it. It doesn't hurt anything. The most important thing is that people don't get all upset over sprites, that they talk it out on the talk pages, as with any other thing. All these reverts lately seem to be over something that's not really a rule, and we're all good faith editors here, we're all reasonable people. So I just wanted to put that out there.. have a good weekend everyone. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 03:58, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for your long reply. I undid my edits back earlier.
But there is one thing I don't understand - Why undo sprite of PC only?--Beans1512Talk/Contribs 04:25, 29 April 2017 (UTC)

1.0.7 not on the template[edit]

Please fix 1.0.7 has an article but the template doesn't show 1.0.7 Boorider7 (talk) 16:49, 22 April 2017 (UTC)
Done!--SamGamgee55 (talk) 04:00, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

Compressing[edit]

At the moment it says

1.0.3   build 1
1.0.4	build 1 build 2
1.0.5	build 1 build 2 build 3
1.0.6	build 1

which is too long. I propose we change it to

1.0.3 (build 1) • 1.0.4 (build 1 • build 2) • 1.0.5 (build 1 • build 2 • build 3) • 1.0.6 (build 1)

Thoughts? – NixinovaGrid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png Grid Map.png • 20:00, 2 June 2017 (UTC)

That might look good. Want to do a demo in your userspace? – Sealbudsman talk/contr 21:03, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
I've edited it in my sandbox: User:Nixinova/Sandbox/PocketNixinovaGrid Book and Quill.png Grid Diamond Pickaxe.png Grid Map.png • 21:08, 2 June 2017 (UTC)
Oh, yes. I was thinking that, in addition to the 1.0.x section, there would be many other opportunities for compressing. But looking at it, 1.0.x is the only one, really. Thanks for making the demo, and sorry to ask you for that. Anyway I like it and think it should go in. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 14:23, 3 June 2017 (UTC)

1.2 sprite[edit]

(The timing may be early…) I support Stained Glass, what does everyone else think? --Beans1512 Talk/Contribs 06:32, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

I do not think of stained glass as an important addition. Instead, I would propose that sprite should be a banner. The BlobsPaper.png 14:23, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
I'm in favour of the logo of xbox one, refering to the cross-platform gameplay.a20001017Talk 23:34, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
 Support more so than the banner. The BlobsPaper.png 03:36, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
 Support How about adding Switch and xbox logos? :) --Beans1512 Talk / Contribs 07:39, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
This is my suggestion #1.
This is Blobs2's suggestion #1.
This is a20001017's suggestion #1.
This is my suggestion #2.
For your reference ;) --Beans1512 Talk / Contribs 11:24, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

add Update Aquatic[edit]

I'd like to add "Update Aquatic".

--Mikanzukituyu02 (talk) 02:06, 29 January 2018 (UTC)

About 1.2.13 build 3[edit]

1.2.13 that introduced some of the Update Aquatic features. So is it frist build of Update Aquatic? And here is my an idea.

Yfohdit (talk) 18:24, 16 March 2018 (UTC)

Update Aquatic[edit]

1.2.13 and 1.2.14 is still considered a part of 1.2 instead of Update Aquatic. They only added beta features for Update Aquatic and is incomplete. Thus, 1.2.13 and 1.2.14 should be moved to Better Together Update. Skylord wars (talk) 05:32, 5 April 2018 (UTC)

Update Aquatic "Build 8"[edit]

Currently the "build 8" doesn't redirect to the page Bedrock_Edition_1.2.20.1, should the page be moved to match the redirect or should the redirect change to match the page location? jjlr (talk) 08:28, 11 April 2018 (UTC)

It seems that at least 1.2.20.1 is Build 8.--Mikanzukituyu02 (talk) 12:19, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
It would appear that someone moved the previous UA build 1 (1.2.13 build 2) out of Update Aquatic due to not having UA features, then moved UA builds 2-7 to 1-6, but didn't move "build 8" (1.2.20 build 1), for some reason?
In any case, the line between 1.2 and Update Aquatic seems to be blurry at best... - Princess Nightmoon (TalkContributions) 12:54, 12 April 2018 (UTC)
How about grouping the updates by the actual version numbers (like all the other sections), instead of just "build [number]"? - Princess Nightmoon (TalkContributions) 13:17, 12 April 2018 (UTC)

1.4 "build 10"[edit]

Marioprotvi, where exactly are you seeing "build 10" in-game? I can only find "beta 1.5.0.0" at the top, and "v1.5.0.0" in the bottom corner of the title screen. - Princess Nightmoon (TalkContributions) 16:25, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

It is the same as the reason why 1.2.20.1 made "build 8" because it was written "build 10" in the game change log after updating 1.5.0.0.--Mikanzukituyu02 (talk) 23:46, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

1.4 format[edit]

1.2.14 is confusable, and it is hard to sort 1.2.15, 1.2.16(1.2.13.30). I think the format should be changed: 1.2.13 have Experimental Gameplay, so it have official version. 1.2.14 and 1.2.20 add something new directly, so I think it won`t have corresponding official version. If these versions really have official versions unfortunately, we can change it again.
