    jeb_ Jens Bergensten:
    The new "good guess" for a Beta 1.8 release date is 12th of September (this monday) =( *takes cover* #bodyguardwanted
    Extras:

    ----
    The bugs are invisible chests (or chests without lids) and ghost items (even in singleplayer)...
    ----
    There are still bugs in 1.8... I fixed all those that bukkit reported, but managed to find (or create, who knows?) new ones... to be cont.
    ----
    Received a list of 17 bugs from the bukkit team (beta 1.8). That will be my task today​

    ender pearls!

    EDIT: so they do pick up user placed blocks:

    this is unfortunate :( on the plus side, they dont seem to move blocks frequently. they mostly pick one up and lug it around until the sun comes up and kills them.

    also, the new biomes and map generator is AWESOME! the terrain formations that ive seen are EPIC. i can also see that the NPC villages and abandon mines are going to be great resources to survival players.

    The new biomes are awesome indeed. The inventory for the creative mode looks a bit messy thoguh, I wish they would have split items into categories. Also they should have included some kind of super tool to remove blocks rather than your fists, it's really easy to destroy some blocks by accident. Sure, you might be able to replace them easily, but destroying some glass blocks for the decorative lava pillar in a friends house would not be fun.

    As much as I like it the unlimited (?) max height is killing my super smooth framerate. Hopefully you'll be able to limit it to 256 or something. However being able to build buildings higher than 60 blocks is AWESOME. :)

    Hopefully the final beta 1.8 will also include a character screen were you can see your level and the advantages leveling up yields.

    What I really hate is accidently sprinting and using up my food. Fortunately zombie flesh is always available!

    A question I have been wanting an answer to for ages... "who build all the 1 wide 2 high tunnels which span for miles?"

    Answer: I think it was ending credits (kitchen with gold and black floor?)...

    New Question: Why?! :)

    I doubt it was me, my major tunnels are all 3x3 and I don't recall any significant 2x1 tunnels (plus I don't use black wool or gold). Whereabouts is this?

    uhh...i think those tunnels were created by everyone.

    you get enough people exploring and looking for dungeons/minerals and your bound to end up with some tunnels here and there.

    Agreed, the rivers and the canyons/ravines are pretty awesome. Can be a bit spazzy though, ravines through super tall mountains look weird.

    At first 1.8 was kind of bitter sweet for me. Food everywhere and stacks to 64, health regen, sprinting, jump critical is OP as heck... and then suddenly, AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    All is forgiven.

    Windows 7 is crapping up on me. More and more programs are getting "..stopped working"-messages. Had to reinstall Java, and MC behaves edgy. Looks like a reinstall is heading my way.. :(

    This brings me to my question: Any one successfully installed a linux version with Win7 running on a virtual-machine? I'm downloading Mint to have it a go, don't know if it will work, but read about it in LinuxFormat and thought I might give it a try..

    Although, I might not have much time to do this on my spare-time, since I 'prolly' begin attending school soon, and move to a new home (if only MrsFio and I can actually win a "biding-round" for a house?)

    Anyways, 1.8 coming up after the weekend - think I'll play a bit Single-player to get the feel of the game..:clap:

    You wont be able to play minecraft on linux on a virtualbox, there is no graphics acceleration.
    Linux Mint is pretty good, although id recomend Ubuntu ;)

    Think you misunderstood me. I meant installing Linux and then running Win7 on a virtual machine (still playing Minecraft in Linux obviously.. ) Why have Win 7 on a virtual-machine? Why not?

    I think MrsFio meant the footballfield on the survival-server. Kinda my fault though, since I told her about it (I thought it was on survival..) haven't been on the creative-server in a loong time

    1.8 is amazing.

    The survival gameplay feels much more tense with the addition of hunger and though I think it could do with some tweaking (I feel the food bar drains too fast), I think it really, really adds to the game.

    As others have said, the new terrain generation is just fantastic too; and the new lighting system really adds to the atmosphere without compromising the blocky, retro-style of the game's visuals.

    None of the changes in 1.8 are that significant on their own, but as a whole combined update to the game it really adds so much and makes the game feel different in a good way.
