Mojang’s main MineCraft developer has put his attention onto the Survival and Adventure mode of the game. Last Thursday he released a snapshot that released some interesting new functionality.

Survival mode

– 3 new stone types!
– Major Enchanting & Repairing changes!
– Mossy stone bricks recipe!
– Updated Villager trading!
– Doors stack!
– Slime blocks!
– Lots of other tweaks, changes, bug fixes and secret features!

Adventure Mode, mostly for map creators:

– Adventure Mode no longer lets you place/destroy blocks (but this is still subject to change)
– Added Entity Selectors! Use @e in certain commands to target entities. You can limit it with [type=Chicken] or [type=!Skeleton]
– Added a /blockdata command!
– Added ‘Lock’ (String) NBT tag on most containers.
– Added an optional entity parameter to /kill (try: /kill @e[type=!Player]
– Added optional arguments to /clear for max item count (use 0 to not actually delete anything) & NBT data
– Lots of other tweaks, changes, bug fixes and secret features!

Stay tuned to Mojang’s patch updates, because I am sure there is more cool stuff to follow.

Game on!
