Starting it off, 1.6 update discussion!

Tumblr wrote:Fixing bugs, enabling nether.
1.6 officially has a release date of “not soon”. The main features will be the maps, bug fixes, and now a functioning Nether in multiplayer.

Nether. In smp. Fun!

Hopefully, most of the recently introduced bugs that plague SMP and SP will be fixed. :/

I don't mean to intrude on your tidy and neat thread, but are you whitelisted on our server? Your posting this seems to show that you have an interest in Minecraft, and we have a GT server running.

I'm not, as I run my own active server and community, along with actively playing on a large Australian server that I'm apart of.

Well, I guess I shouldn't have expected anything less than greatness during so long a hiatus. :P

I really hope that they fix the bug where you sleep in your bed, but get woken up by mobs spawning inside your house. I know it's easy to fix it with just placing your bed futher from the wall, but it's still really annoying.

I really hope that when Jeb said that Pistons will probably be in 1.6 he was serious, I love those.

I agree. And I hope they add the sticky pistons too, not only the normal ones.

Well it's not so much proximate to a wall as much as it is lighting issues.

As much as I would love that too, the odds of it actually coming out in 1.6 are low. If he plans on incorporating the nether into SMP for 1.6, his focus isn't going to go to pistons. However, on the odd chance that he does add them in, it's more than likely going to be a trial run in order to locate a lot of the bugs. Because there are going to be a lot.

There aren't going to be many bugs at all, actually, considering how they're planning on just taking the Piston mod creator's code and editing it a little, and that mod is insanely stable. That's why I think they'd add it in 1.6.

Well my point is that Notch's focus is to finish up SMP Nether. So I just think something will be overlooked when putting it in, even in they do.

Trap doors! :O I hated having to make workarounds with floodgates and stuff that were wannabe trap doors. Exuberance!

I had been hoping that trap doors or something similar would get added at some point :D

I think we should have expected this when he fixed the ladders. And the boosters kind of hinted that he was likely to get rid of it :/

I kinda did guess it, but I still hoped they wouldn't fix it.

I read somewhere that the trapdoors open upwards. This and the fact that they don't let water through make them somekind of useless for most cases I had planned.

I really hope that gets changed at some point.
