Johan and Tommaso have added a whole heap of features to 0.8.0- today we’re gonna tell you everything in detail about 0.8.0…
1. Birch, Spruce, and Jungle planks, slabs, logs and stairs
As you can see in the tweet above, Johan has added these new wooden blocks. Jungle wood will only be available in creative though, as there are no Jungle trees in survival mode. Of course, Birch, Spruce, and Oak will be obtainable from their trees.
3. Sideways Logs
Along with new wooden blocks, the wood logs will now be able to placed sideways- pretty cool huh?
4. New Crops!
Finally you can be the Gordon Ramsay of Minecraft – you’ll now be able to grow and feast upon carrots, pumpkins, and potatoes! Not only that, but the pumpkins can be crafted in to jack-o-lanterns, an orange alternative to glowstone. Update: Beetroot added. See bottom.
5. Where’s Wally?
6. More Items- You Won’t Get Lost!
Tommaso has added a clock and a compass to the game. Clocks are handheld items that display the time by displaying the sun and the moon’s position along the horizon. Now you know what time it is, even when you’re underground. Compasses always point towards the player’s original spawn point, no matter where in your map you are!
7. Carpets and Hay
8. New Creative Inventory
Anew creative inventory- and note the long grass and ferns!
9. And more!
A picture from Jeb’s Instagram show a surprise feature- looking like a radish? We
Another new feature worth noting is that animals will be breedable! Sadly, we do not know how it will work yet, but will probably be the same as PC.
Not just that, but redstone will now be mineable to craft powered rails, and to keep for when redstone circuitry is added sometime after 0.9.0.
