Minecraft Horse Armor

minecraft horse armor

The upcoming Minecraft 1.6 update will have minecraft horses. It will also have minecraft horse armor. This image from developer Jeb’s instagram feed shows a minecraft horse, saddled with full armor and tethered to a fence post.

That’s right. If you’re worried about having to leave your horse somewhere whilst you hunt creepers, or if your minecraft stables aren’t quite built yet, you can tether your horse to any fence. You know what this means? Minecraft hitching posts and minecraft mounted pvp.

Minecraft 1.2 Jungle Biomes and Wolf Puppies

When Minecraft 1.0 was released there was much consternation that the fast paced development that had characterized the game throughout Alpha and Beta might grind to a halt. However Mojang has yet again proved that the trust of its customers is well placed with a 1.1 release under their belt and a 1.2 release on the horizon. At this stage the main features are jungle biomes, sweeping dense swathes of wood and foliage that tower into the skies, dwarfing everything we’ve seen in Minecraft to date, and wolf puppies, which are just about the most adorable things I’ve ever seen.

Minecraft Snapshot Download: How To Farm Minecraft Sheep

The image above might not look like much, but what you’re observing there is a new ‘grass eating’ animation, which a sheared sheep will do. Why? Because minecraft sheep will now ‘eat’ grass and regrow their wool. This means that you’ll no longer be left with sheep that are for all intents and purposes useless once they’ve been sheared.

Fifty Five Bugs In Minecraft 1.0

Seth Bling, one of the great minecraft video makers has created a video with a whopping fifty five bugs left in the ‘final’ edition of mninecraft. With Jens indicating that we’ll be getting optional updates (hopefully to fix these bugs and not add more whacky half finished features) every Friday or so, it’s becoming pretty clear that 1.0 was 1.0 in name only.

Minecraft 1.9 Pre-Release 5 | Crazy Camera Antics and Optimized FPS Await!

Minecraft 1.9 Pre Release 5 is the last release before the final release comes out on the 18th of November, 2011. With the feature freeze in full effect, there’s not much ‘new’ in Minecraft 1.9 Pre Release 5. What there are is a host of little bug fixes, minor changes and most importantly FPS optimization. Some players are reporting jumps in Minecraft performance of up to 40 frames per second, so if you’ve been able to fry eggs on your computer case when playing the other pre-releases, I’d advise installing this one.
