Minecraft Beta

December 20th, 2010 by Crusader

Notch has announced that Minecraft, the survival/building and oh yeah, mining, game is now officially in beta. The website is returning an error code for me presently, but here’s what’s new:

  • Working server-side inventory
  • Made SMP servers save chunks way less often in most cases. Chunks don’t resave if they got saved in the last 30 seconds
  • Moving too far away from a container, or having it blow up, closes the inventory screen
  • Fixed /kill
  • Introduced leaf decay again
  • You can now throw eggs

Also, if you weren’t in the alpha, the price of the game has now risen to 14.95 Euro.
