  • tomas paredes

    when they publish the update? and I’m hoping to make a tree house in the rainforest biome

    • joel


      • Twittler

        A promotion for you.

  • HackGamintuts

    I’m so excited for the texture packs can’t wait =)

  • Me

    If 4J just finished with the update and the stream just finished talking about my guess is going to be in the week, maybe tomorrow seeing as all the updates that added big features came out on Tuesdays.

  • :D

    dude I cant wait so much creations I can do now!:D

  • Keiichi93

    Wish they had a system on here and twitter to prevent impatient 12 year olds getting other impatient 12 year olds excited over false release dates and false additions that 4J hasn’t even mentioned on their twitter.

    Oh, and that unlimited world bs. Simply put, It’s impossible for a console. Stop asking.

    Elaborately put, each chunk in a save file takes up space on your hard drive. Some people don’t have massive hard drives, so to prevent overflowing of data, they limited the worlds. If you notice on the PC Edition, worlds that have tons of chunks explored, they get pretty big. (I have one that’s about 11GB) If I was a kid with a 20GB hard drive, and a ton of games+dlc, an 11GB world would cause my hard drive to malfunction, or to possible stop working. There goes all my stuff, and any 12 year old in that situation would blame 4J, which means we start the circle over again.

    • Prior Semblance

      Filling up a hard drive doesn’t make it break <_<
      Besides they could easily provide world size options (small, medium, large, etc) based on how much space you have left.

    • joel

      Bro, i’m 11 And… i’m not impatient or exited on false release dates….

    • Danny

      No, Its not impossible for consoles because It would take up too much data, Its because the consoles don’t have nearly enough RAM to render that correctly without bugs. But there won’t be unlimited worlds on the console version. Mojang left it up to PC Minecraft owners to have a computer with alot of RAM, because the PC’s can hold the RAM, If I said that correctly. And that guy, “Prior Semblance”, is right. Filling up a hard drive does not make it malfunction. I’ve filled up a hard drive before, and nothing bad happened except having a hard drive I can’t put stuff on anymore.

    • Matt. St**e

      People that are 12 are not like this, more like people who are 8. However, that is quite a good point. I just wanted to say, in my opinion, people who constantly try to rush are the people who cause bugs. Putting the developers under pressure is a really bad idea. Let them work on it thoroughly and you wont get updates filled with bugs. Of course there will be a few bugs, but they can be fixed in the next bug fixing update.

  • Paul

    I hope that they have the textures packs for free then ill totally play this A LOT!!!!!! more

    • RoomtGolem

      They are not going to be free.

    • Tommy

      there not for free only trials for texture packs and mash up packs are free

  • I2hino

    You miss spelled Splitting* in the “Fixes” box.
    (- Fix for doors spitting in half and glitching in open/closed motion when mined.)

    • Twittler

      It’s actually making me angry.

  • Kristopher LaRoche

    You didnt even show us texture packs

  • Nintendo



  • mojang

    20/8/2013 its coming

    • Twittler


    • Matt. St**e

      There is no true release date. Follow Minecraft for Xbox, 4j studios or play xbla for the latest on Minecraft and the release date.

    • lazy ass

      i agree because most of the updates seemed to come out on a tuesday…… but who knows they haven’t said anything

  • oOFr4nKiEOo

    cant wait till tu12 gonna be amazing

  • Yo Mama

    Dyeing armor would be good, but still it is awesome

  • Mr sir

    Hope it’s done soon

  • Drakis Felts

    I AM!

  • MineCraft freak

    Redstone lamps oh yeah

  • Joe

    Is there any side logs?

    • Matt. St**e

      Not in this update

  • Danny

    Hey, I’m just saying this to anybody with Mojang or 4J Studios, Me and many others would like you to add support for player-created texture packs (if it isn’t in TU12) and player-created mod support in a future update because not having access to it can make Minecraft seem monotonous and boring sometimes, so that would make Minecraft on X-Box all that more immersive. Also, add a “Share World” function somewhere so Minecrafters don’t have to go through alot to play an adventure map made by someone others than their friends. I am not saying to add this in a very close update but add it sometime because I know that coding can be a b**** sometimes, but I’m saying add it sometime. You will find alot others will agree with me on this. I am not aware of any problems with this that would prevent this from becoming reality, so that is why I am saying this.

    • Danny

      Replying from my earlier comment, a custom skin creator would also be an awesome addition to X-Box MC, I’m just throwing that out there.

  • Sw4YSnipes_boss clan

    I hope its out sometime next week and i never thought that you were going to add baby villagers thats pretty cool

  • Sw4YSnipes_boss clan

    Anyone want to join Sw4Y on COD black ops 2 my gamertag is INTENSEGAM3R8 and if anyone wants to play minecraft with me they can i can only accept 20 more people so if you want to play wit me my gamertag is INTENSEGAM3R8

  • Sw4YSnipes_boss clan

    Send it now

  • Dave!

    how come this don’t mention the new leather armor texture

    • Matt. St**e

      I guess it’s not really an addition, but you are right. There is a new texture for leather armour. Also, lava seems to have a new texture in the livestream.

  • G1bberz

    I thoght that they were adding ender chests… :(

  • Real_Livet_Ut

    Why should this update take sooo long?? Had wait about one year :((

  • Matt. St**e

    I did want to see daylight sensors, but maybe in the next update. I am not looking forward to ambient, just to scare me in a mine. (ambient is ghostly noises in a dark space, not normal noises found in a cave, just saying)

    • Danny

      I don’t really think daylight sensors will come all that soon because they were added into PC Minecraft in the 1.5 update, or the redstone update, and there are more important things. Just saying, because thats what I think.

  • Matt. St**e

    Does the new mob AI include villagers having the ability to use doors and go inside at night?

  • Matt. St**e

    I noticed something of interest on the picture of the new tutorial world. If you zoom in on the ‘C’ on the ‘Minecraft’ sign, you can see obsidian. Just wanted to point that out.

  • john

    do the texture packs cost points

  • Josh

    Cant Wait for it anyone know when though?



  • Richard Dover

    I heard from mojang that it is coming out Tuesday the 20th
