    TU8 Changelog At LAST!:D

  • DragonsDeck

    That is a LOT of changes, now just the matter of WHEN we are getting the update so I can get back to this game.

    • hello

      its out know on the 30th

  • Cody


    • Connor denney

      Oh okay let’s just leave minecraft buggy and crashy and leave multiple game crippling bugs and let’s leave mc in the dust in 1.9 and drop everything to get your precious texture packs that only change how the game looks…

      • http://www.facebook.com/bryan.manzey Bryan James Manzey

        Like honestly, I don’t care for texture packs one bit, the default look of minecraft is perfect I think!

      • Canopy Radiation

        It would come with a lot of bug fixes, calm yo t!ts.

    • http://www.facebook.com/bryan.manzey Bryan James Manzey

      Honestly no. That is not all we want. Now talk about re growing SHEEP WOOL then yes you would be correct.

    • Outboardgold127

      Bad luck.

    • Derp

      What would you rather have first? Hoping they work on texture packs after this, or the End? I would love to fight a dragon, rather than worry about how the game looks.

  • http://twitter.com/BlackieChanXBL Blackie Chan

    YES!!!! So excited for these fixes!

  • komlit

    Great but missed major one fix for ender pearl crash host xbox every time they throw it and leave?

  • Andrew

    Now only if they’d fix the issue with animals despawning when trapped.

    • http://www.facebook.com/azombieriot Jerod Long

      Animals only despawn if they have more than 20 blocks to move in a single direction. So, let’s say you have a 21×21 pen for your animals, that means they will despawn.

      • Botzee

        Wow, that is annoying but good to know… I had all my animals in a nice backyard.

        • Skid

          No animals don’t despawn only monsters do duhh.

      • Outboardgold127

        Is it like that on pc? Because I’ve had a huge cow farm on pc and I haven’t noticed despawning.

  • yologuy 223

    no end?

    • The Flame Elite

      The End is coming in TU9 along with ability to climb vines

  • Devin

    Holy tits balls

  • Big Draco69

    How about xbox freezing when entering the nether

  • rhooper

    Well, time to play Minecraft again :-)

  • http://www.facebook.com/bryan.manzey Bryan James Manzey

    Now if only they had initiated that option to respawn your nether to get said nether fortresses in established worlds! :-(

    • Zman1995

      Bryan they said they will. So there’s still hope. I follow 4j’s twitter and they explain everything there.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ryan.simmonds.754 Ryan Simmonds

    This is pretty awesome although I was hoping for them to introduce the Ender Dragon in their next update.

    • Derp Herp

      It is this is a bug fix update

  • julious10

    and the spawn eggs??? or iron golems :/

    • http://www.facebook.com/azombieriot Jerod Long

      Later update. :)

      This is only a bug fix update.

    • itzSamuel

      yea i want that those too and the END

    • http://www.facebook.com/daniel.faria.3114 Daniel Faria

      o yeah they should really put that bcause i was trying to make blazes and ghasts in the normal world

  • chris

    yay now xp has a sound other then picking up an item sound

  • bob

    if the update comes do you have to make an new world to get those features

  • DARTHCJ117

    i want teh jungles and different colored wood planks

    • The Flame Elite

      That will be added in future updates

      • http://www.facebook.com/daniel.faria.3114 Daniel Faria

        how do u know?

        • http://twitter.com/ly0nardo Lyon Stinner

          The Xbox version will eventually catch up to what the PC version can do. You can easily predict what will come in future updates based on what is already in the PC version.

        • The Flame Elite

          They said on the 4J Studio twitter page.

    • Outboardgold127

      I better fix would be to be able to grow nether wart in the overworld!!!

      • REBORN

        you can but you need soulsand

        • Outboardgold127

          I can indeed plant the nether wart, but it will not grow through any of the stages, I even used a BUD to test this.

          • Zambonifofex

            didi you remember to put lava near it?

          • cheeseywiz98

            You can grow netherwart in the overworld, I think it was made that way in 1.4.6 :/

          • Nickan Fayyazi

            Umm… this is Xbox Edition.

          • Omnomnomagon

            I don’t think lava has anything to do with nether wart.

          • Zambonifofex

            if i remeber right, u need lava near it if ur in th overworld

          • Outboardgold127

            Well you remember wrong.

          • Julian Coronado

            You dont need lava. Ive grown it without it.

      • PokeRedstone

        you aren’t supposed to be able to, even when it grows in the normal version, it will only give you one.

        • you suck at minecraft

          you can in the computer you dumbass and when it is full grown it gives you 2-4 but it can grow because of a bug in the xbox version so it cant grow on the overworld

          • Nowayjose


      • Sorry bro

        Nether wart has only been able to be grown in the overworld and the end since 1.3.2.

        • The_CGC

          1.2.5 Actually.

          • Your Wrong

            Nope it was 1.3.2 i think you’ll find.

      • Bob

        It can, plant it on soul sand.

  • bob

    if the update comes do you have to make an new world to get those features.

  • bob

    if the update comes do you have to make an new world to get those features..

  • bob

    if the update comes do you have to make an new world to get those features…….

  • Adam

  • Zake

    Make it so if moderator the player can fly that would be cool

  • TGMGamingzz1

    What about the duplication glich

    • The Flame Elite

      That was fixed when they added Creative mode

  • http://www.facebook.com/eduardo.gomez.7543653 Eduardo Gomez

    When will the update for the enderdragon n the end be out?

    • http://www.facebook.com/mindaugas.zdanavicius.7 Mindaugas Zdanavicius

      • http://www.facebook.com/eduardo.gomez.7543653 Eduardo Gomez

  • http://www.facebook.com/mindaugas.zdanavicius.7 Mindaugas Zdanavicius

    Why no new stuff like jungles bitch

  • Dude man bro

    • muckdogred

      Not possible/practical on xbox!

  • TheCake65

    And you still havent fixed the glitch where you cant swap items youve grabed for another item in the inventory its a small thing but its a pain in the butt

  • http://twitter.com/YZD64 Owen MacLeod

    now it’s just a matter of time of when the update come’s out

  • Minecraft xbox

    Sheep don’t re grow wool….fix plz

  • Minecraft xbox

    Iron golems ? Would be nice

  • Minecraft xbox

    Ender chests too…

  • nick900

    when will title update 8 be released

  • EnderKiller122

    Make it so moderaters and host can chang gamemodes

  • Zach

    This update will defiantly have a huge impact on MC Xbox. Bug fixes are more important than most people think.

  • blood dwarf

    hope we get upside down stairs and half slabs plus side ways logs

  • Nathan

    When will jungles and the end be add and do u have a release date you estimate of when it will be ready to be released

  • Seb

    I cannot go to the end it normal ?

    • Outboardgold127

      Yes that is very normal, the end hasn’t been implemented into the game yet.

  • Outboardgold127

    Yes, finnaly, bug fixes. Also fix the animals despawning and sheep regrouping their wool. Also the red stone acts very weirdly, for example when I start a five clock, or something, it acts perfectly but looks very laggy and delayed. I hope you know what I mean by this. And also the spawning mobs from a spawner seem to reach a limit as to how much can spawn, even though I forced them out of the area of the spawner, they stop at about 60 mobs or so.

    Thx….. You guys are great.

  • edgard

    so when will this be released >? cuz its pretty exciting

  • Tyler

    they need to make it were in the host options were players can break leaves sponges shoot bows

  • collin

    Wouldnt u guys wait if they just added all the updates in one with free texture packs and mods and stuff like that

  • Darien young

    My nether crashes whenever I enter the portal how can I fix it?

  • Daxter

    You guys didnt fix the glowstone so you can place buttons and rails on them?

    • The Flame Elite

      Can no longer place tracks or redstone on them anymore. Buttons are allowed

  • French4Assassin

    If you want mods go play minecraft on pc,

    stop asking about the end and iron golems, the will be in later updates as 4J said they would be, you are not the only person in the world waiting for those features so stop asking.

    TU8 is a bug fix as 4J stated, they can not find and solve every bug, it takes a lot of time, im sure there will be more bug fixes like this one in the future, so do not be mad if they did not fix a bug you are experiencing.

    for a $30 game you can not complain.

    • French4Assassin

      personally id like to see these bug fixes and small features

      * upside down stairs and half slabs
      * lighting issues with half slabs next glowstone or jack o’ lanterns
      * different colored wooden planks and stairs
      * piston/sticky pistons glitched extended when leaving the game or nether
      * silk touch does not pick up ice
      * fortune shovel does not work with snow or clay
      * silk touch pick can pick up grass and mycelium and should be only silk touch shovels

      * duplicating blocks even after TU7 needs to be fixed

      * better generation of worlds so that at least have a small part of each biome

      ill stop there for the sake of the length, but i can think of more if you ask me.

      • HitMarkGod

        The silk touch on the pic axe does the same as it does on PC thats not a bug thats just the way silk touch works.

        • Outboardgold127

          Your wrong, Ice is only available in vanilla minecraft through the use of silk touch on an ice block, go look on YouTube for ice farms in minecraft.

          • Outboardgold127

            On pc that is

      • TWH9

        All those are great ideas. I especially want those upside down stairs. Has everyone else forgotten?!?!?!?!

  • stuff

    This is very good news I just hope it comes out soon

  • that one guy

    Make moderators have all the host powers

  • XboxMiner

    The Spawn Rate from Ghast is to much :(

  • Willy

    Can 4J change the “Clear Quick Select” bar to only delete the item selected? There is no other way to delete an item in Creative Mode other than clearing the whole bar or moving the item way off screen and hitting B.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003618893395 Antonio Marines Gonzalez

    i will be verry hapy if we already can enter to the end

  • http://twitter.com/XxWOODY1999xX Jonathon

    Try to fix when u throw a ender portal up in the air and leave the persons world u leave will not freeze

    • Canopy Radiation

      Translation: “Try to fix the bug where throwing an ender pearl up in the air causes the world to freeze and then disconnects you.” At least I think.

    • Outboardgold127

      Maybe he’s saying : try to fix the Bug where throwing an ender pearl into the air and then leave. The persons world you just left will freeze. Not too sure

    dessert temples moss temples and stuff from the computer minecraft

  • NotMyRealName

    Anyone know what the block boundaries are for spawn caps on Zombies spawners? I have an XP farm I just build, and it only collects around 6 max because the killing area is too close to the spawner, so they stop spawning, which I hate, because I spent so much time and resources on it and it isn’t even fully functional yet.

    • Outboardgold127

      To create a highly efficient monster spawner trap, you need a room 9×9 around the spawner (or 8×8 around the corner of the spawner with the lowest x:z coordinates. Then you will need to take the mobs further than 8 block spherical from the spawner to allow new mobs to spawn.

      Then make a crusher or something.


    i want jungle biomes and diff coulored wood planks and have they changed the spawn area again

    • Outboardgold127

      Nobody cares

  • Craig Mavra

    This update is horrible. It’s all just bug fixes really. We were all expecting maybe the ended world, or trading with villagers, new enemies, something a lot those lines.

  • Andy Holdcraft

    Hey everyone my friends I had this idea on the xbox version of minecraft there could be a mode where you have to craft stuff like the computer version. Then bring everything from the computer version into the xbox version. Also make mods for the xbox version like have a mod market in the homepage of the xbox version but, you would have to pay with minecraft cards that are like money where you could buy the cards in a store. Me and my friend have bought every version of minecraft there is and we love to play all three versions of minecraft. If you guys can make this happen you will make my friends live and hopefully everyone who plays minecraft




    P.S. you if you do make the mod market thing make the Mocreatures mod.

  • ender_man77

    i would like all of the redstone stuff and blcoks from the pc

  • drakenightroad

    alrighty then i have to agree guys stop asking for things . they will get close to minecraft on pc but it will take time. if you guys go do some reading you will learn never ending land will not happen if it dose it will take a long time to even do cause xbox isn’t to do the same as a pc can. i have to say when they add the sheep growing wool back i will be happy… and im all up for a few mods geting added here adn there XD but i have to say to the one that said this was a 30$ game WHERE DID YOU BUY. 20$ pc 20 $ xbox.. insted of every one crying about “i want this . why don’t we have that already . when will we get caught up to the pc one ” fact remains tell minecraft ends as in stop being made new by the makers .. there will never be even ground on the xbox one ..sorry boys and girls that how this works welcome to the world. and trust me i play both and hate the fall bac kbut give them time to work on the game and maybe in a year or 2 we will have the aether as well and maybe a way to make our own skin and texture packs ^_^ just stay calm and wait for the updates

  • sandman
