Minecraft 1.4 Beta Released


The long awaited 1.4 Beta update to Minecraft has finally been released, introducing a new animal type; Wolves. They start out wild, and will attack you if provoked. However, players can tame them by giving them bones. Once you've tamed the beast, they will follow you and can protect you from other baddies. Nice!

This release also sees the return of Cocoa, which when found allows you to dye wool brown, or make some cookies, which are a great source of health, and stackable too!

The developers have also coded the majority of the stats and achievements framework, but haven't implemented it yet, pushing it back to the next update rather than delaying this one.

Other additions are being able to hang still on ladders by pressing Shift, and going to sleep in a bed resets your spawn position.

A full list of updates from the official Minecraft update page.
  • Added tameable wolves
  • Added cookies
  • Sleeping in a bed now resets your spawn position
  • New Minecraft logo
  • Holding shift while climbing will hang on to the ladder
  • Spiders will no longer trample crops
  • Lots and lots of infrastructure for Statistics lists and Achievements

The RWP Minecraft Server is running the new update, but currently only vanilla. When a compatible version of hMod is released, we'll roll it out.
