    • May lay diamonds or lapis instead of laying eggs.

  • Added new friendly Pink Wither, which is the complete opposite of a normal wither.
    • Shoots out Love, which heals the nearby land and causes things to grow faster.
    • Known bug: Having both a Pink Wither and a Wither in your world at the same time may cause up to a 200% increase in frame-rate. Will be fixed for launch.

  • Lapis may now be used for new Lapis furniture.
  • Added dyed glass.
  • Walking over many blocks will gradually wear them down, creating many new block variants such as Cracked Stone and Muddy Grass.

Redstone

  • Removed all BUD behavior, and added safeguards so that it may never come back.
  • Made redstone bugs spawn actual Redstone Bugs to assist with debugging.
  • Added new Quantum Entangled redstone, obtained by mixing 1 redstone, 1 diamond and 3 lapis.
    • One entangled redstone dust will connect to another pair elsewhere.
    • No current way of specifying the connection, may in fact connect to another player’s world.
  • Added new BUD blocks.

  • Finding a Rainbow after rain passes will be the primary way of obtaining Magic.
  • Finding a green-tinted horse will be the primary way of obtaining Luck.

  • Spells may backfire, depending on Luck.
  • Examples of new spells include:
    • Turn any item into Fish.
    • Turn current biome into another biome (bug: currently only turns into ocean).
    • Ability to remove gravity from other creatures/players in the world.

Fishing

  • Overhauled fishing mechanics.

  • Fish may become scared if too much noise is made nearby.
  • Added 28 new achievements for fishing.
  • Rare chance for extra items to drop when fishing, such as armor and maps.
  • Removed fishing.
  • Having a fish in your possession will drain your health by 1 each second, to help phase out fishing.

Combat

  • Removed crossbows.
  • To deter cheating players on PvP servers, the PvP system has been completely redesigned.
  • Players may no longer attack other players directly, but must recruit an army of Monsters and Animals.
  • Each monster/animal has different strengths, weaknesses and abilities whilst attacking or defending in PvP combat.
  • New turn-based combat system will help create epic battles that may last hours at a time.

World generation & terrain

  • Added many new mysterious adventuring locations.
  • Added 6 new biomes.
  • Reimplemented the Farlands.

Trivia
