Minecraft Beta 1.3

February 23rd, 2011 by Crusader

Mojang and Notch have released version 1.3 (beta) of the spelunking simulator Minecraft, along with a new launcher:

  • Implemented a new lighting engine with the help of MrMessiahs (can be turned off)
  • Changed the options around, added a new “Graphics options” button
  • Added beds. If all players in a map sleeps in a bed during night, the game immediately skips until morning
  • Added three new half-size blocks
  • Added Delay/Repeater redstone dust blocks
  • Added whitelisting to the server. To use, enter “whitelist <cmd>” where cmd is “on”, “off”, “add <player>”, “remove <player>”, “list” or “reload”
  • New save file format, old maps need to be converted (that might take a while..)
  • It’s now possible to have more than five save slots, and to rename saves
  • Scrollbars in both the texture pack list, and in the map selection screen
  • Replaced the Mojang splash image to reflect the new logo colors
  • .. and a bunch of bug fixes and tweaks!
