Minecraft 1.8.2-pre1 – Christmas Gift Edition

Happy Holidays

Just in time before the holidays, we have the pre-release for 1.8.2 ready. There are some bug fixes and performance tweaks we wanted to get out to you before most of us leave for vacation during the Christmas holidays.

As always, there are some bugs fixed:

  • [Bug MC-51573] – Hostile mobs continue to follow/attack you in spectator mode
  • [Bug MC-65697] – Explosion force on entities is directionally biased
  • [Bug MC-66089] – Explosion physics changed, range of some TNT cannons greatly reduced

Aside from bug fixes and performance increases this update includes cookies, milk and of course lots of hugs. Don’t open your gifts before Christmas!

The Minecraft team and everybody else at Mojang wish you happy holidays and a great transition into the new year!

To get pre-releases, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “pre-releases” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog).

The Games Against Ebola Game jam is underway!

Hello, friends.

You’ve probably heard of ebola by now. It’s a terrible disease that’s claimed over 5000 lives in a recent epidemic in West Africa. We’ve known about it for over 40 years, but it’s still considered a serious illness with no known cure.

Despite that, 50% of ebola sufferers do survive, and potential vaccines are currently being tested. Good hospital care and emergency shipments to Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone are vital during this time of need. But they don’t come cheap.

That’s where we can help out! A crew of Mojangstas, along with a few other game developers are participating in a game jam that runs from now until 11AM PST/8PM CET on Saturday. Even better, every smidgen of cash raised goes straight to Direct Relief’s ebola fund. The theme of the jam will be “healing,” for reasons that you can probably work out yourself.

How to donate

All you need to do is donate on humblebundle. By doing that, you’ll get access to every game developed during the Games Against Ebola jam, and help save lives in the process. It’s a massive win-win.

Watch the games being developed

You can also spectate live progress on the development of the games.

Watch the main channel here. It will cycle through the following Mojanger’s feeds: KappischeDinnerboneseargedpkrisjelbring and jbernhardsson.

TL;DR

  • Ebola is a terrible disease that is causing many deaths in West Africa.
  • Money is needed to put a stop to it.
  • Donate to Games Against Ebola to help those in need and get a handful of games to play this Saturday.
  • 100% of your donations go to Direct Relief.

Thanks for reading, everybody.

History of the Assault in Battlefield


Last up in our BF4 Class Weeks is none other than the legendary Assault class, which has seen quite a few changes over the years. Read on for its complete history!

bf4-history-assault-1

Battlefield 1942

One of five kits available to Battlefield 1942 players, the Assault was the go-to class when engaging enemy infantry. Back then, it was all about wielding the firepower of automatic rifles and light machine guns, staying close to the action in the fight between Axis and Allies. 12 years ago, the Assault didn’t have any fancy equipment or healing duties – other classes took care of that.

Battlefield 2

In the modern-day setting of Battlefield 2, the Assault class was still a general-purpose choice for medium-range combat, but it still evolved thanks to additions to the arsenal. For instance, the class gained access to the Underslung Grenade Launcher, a powerful piece of military hardware, and Assault players could also withstand an extra beating thanks to the body armor.

bf4-history-assault-2

Battlefield 2142

Remember when Defibrillators were single-handed? The future is sweet. As the number of classes was trimmed down to four in Battlefield 2142, the abilities of Battlefield 2’s Assault and Medic merged, giving birth to a new kind of Assault kit. This challenged us to focus both on being an assault rifle badass (made easier with rocket and shotgun add-ons), as well as healing and reviving team mates.

bf4-history-assault-3

Battlefield: Bad Company

With the added destruction and chaos introduced in Battlefield: Bad Company, we had a lot of fun with both assault rifles and grenade launchers (although Demolition guys were of course even more explosive) when playing Assault. The convenient LIFE-2 gadget, an auto-injector that restored the Assault player’s health, is also memorable. Other than that, the Assault class was the spear-head of the squad, throwing themselves into the all-out war.

bf4-history-assault-4

Battlefield 4

Jumping ahead to the present and Battlefield 4, the current incarnation of the Assault is a versatile class – not to mention an excellent choice for those just starting out with the game. The healing capabilities have evolved and the Battlefield 4 Assault has access to both a Medic Bag and the smaller First Aid Pack that can be thrown further. Again, the class is crucial for playing the objective and making sure the team stays alive.

Want to know how to be a better Assault player in Battlefield 4? Make sure to read the main Assault Class blog post for some tips.

BF4 Class Week: The Assault


Assault

The Assault class design in its Russian, American, and Chinese variants.

Taking Care of Business and Bruises

Even though every Battlefield class brings something unique to your squad’s efforts, the Assault class is truly a personification of team play. Think of all the times you’ve been boiling of anger after a sudden death – and then regaining your fighting spirit thanks to a timely revive. Or those narrow escapes into cover with 3% health left when you notice a Medic Bag on the ground. An Assault doing its job can’t be overvalued.

Playing as Assault is not just tending to field medic duties, though. With the wide variety of assault rifles and grenade launchers a successful Assault needs to be out there, leading the charge towards Control Points or M-COM Stations, remaining cool in the heat of battle. Creating shortcuts by blasting holes in walls with the grenade launchers or blinding the enemy by smoke should also be on the repertoire.

Community Mission: Make 25 Million Revives

The in-game challenge for this Class Week is truly one dedicated to team work. In a new Community Mission designed for the Support class we want you to collectively make 25 million revives. Charge up the Defibs, and keep the hearts of your team mates beating. We depend on you!

This mission is active between October 28, 9AM PDT and November 4, 2AM PDT. If you reach the goal in time, we’ll award you with a wallpaper artwork featuring the Assault class*. The wallpaper will be posted on the Battlefield  blog for download after the mission is completed.

Assault Shortcut Kit Sale

Top 4 Assault Pro Tips

 

Reviving and Timing

Instinct may tell you to immediately move towards the revive icons above the heads of your near-dead team members. But as any good Assault player knows, a brief second of risk assessment is needed before you do a wild dash, defibs in hand, resulting in you getting mowed down by the very same enemy that just killed your buddy. So: before any revive, check the surrounding areas, see if your downed friend is lying behind cover, and make a quick decision.

Become a Shotgun master

The M26 MASS is a weapon unique to the Assault class, and is very handy for close quarter combat. Once you’ve unlocked it, you have a superb complimentary weapon to your main assault rifle. Experiment with the different kinds of rounds, find what range they fit for, and practice your aim to make every shot count.

First Aid Pack or Medic Bag?

Everything is a matter of taste, but there are some things to keep in mind if you’re choosing between the two health-restoring gadgets of the Assault class. The First Aid Pack is single-use but can be thrown longer, which can be an advantage on larger maps. On smaller maps, where players often circle around the same hotspots, the family-sized Medic Bag could work better. Whatever you choose, locate critical parts of the map that need your goodies, and be generous!

Rack up Those Points

You have a lot of opportunities to score points when playing as Assault – if you do it right. Apart from all the kills you’ll get with your assault rifle, your medic duties will also help to secure the win for the team, and all this earns you sweet XP. Help those who need it, but just so you know: healing and reviving a squad member gives you a point boost…

Thank you for celebrating these four Class Weeks with us! Stay tuned to the Battlefield Blog for more Assault goodies the following days. Remember to revive everyone in sight to ace the community mission, and share your best Assault tips in the comments below.

Realms is packed with awesome maps

Minecraft Realms is getting even more exciting! We’ve packed it to the brim with fresh mini-games, maps to spark an epic adventure, and intricate custom spawns.

Realms gives you and your friends a persistent Minecraft world. It doesn’t matter if the host is online or what time of day it is; Realms worlds are always available for building, adventuring, and crafting. You can start from a random seed, or choose one of our pre-installed maps. You can even switch between the two and save/restore your progress when convenient.

We thought it would be good to give you a rundown of the pre-made maps currently included in Realms. Thanks to all the fantastic community members for creating these masterpieces. You are all talented and generous and lovely.

Learn more about Realms by visiting our website or checking out the subreddit.

Bloxorz by JesperTheEnd

Bloxorz is an homage to popular Flash game… erm… Bloxorz. It’s a puzzler that rewards forward planning and good brainwork. Check out some cool footage of the game in the video above but bear in mind that the level editor is not available in the Realms version. That said, all 33 levels from the original are, so don’t stress too much.

Color Cube by Musclecraft (MaxSizeIs)

Color cube is a tactical minigame that’s all about claiming territory. Players paint the level their own color by running around one of nine available maps, and doing their best not to fall off the ever-changing landscape. There are even powerups to help spice up the gameplay. Play it with a bunch of friends for maximum fun.

Diamond Defender by Xisuma & Eease

Diamond Defender is another innovative minigame. This one tasks players with surviving a terrifying ten waves of creeper attacks while protecting your stash of precious diamonds. Not one for the faint of heart but a bundle of creeper-based mayhem.

Diversity 2 by QMagnet

Diversity 2 is a Complete the Monument-style minigame. That means that players need to find or earn specific blocks to “complete” the map. The extra cool thing about Diversity 2 is that those blocks are earned through completing a bunch of challenges in specific zones. You should definitely check this one out; Marc Watson – the adorable and much-loved guy from Minecraft support – lists this as one of his favourite maps of all time!

Knockback Madness by AKAMC

Knockback Madness is a chaotic mixture of player versus player combat and vertigo-inducing parkour. Players use their Minecraft combat skills to take out the other players using deadly weapons while avoiding their enemies’ advances. Competitive stuff for fans of intense combat!

Missile Wars by SethBling & Cubehamster

Missile Wars is a conveniently descriptive title for this cracking minigame. Players launch TNT and Slime Block missiles at each other’s bases while trying to defend their own by defusing opponents’ missiles with skilled marksmanship. You can even ride your own warhead across the map! Awesome stuff.

Pizzaspleef by SethBling

Pizzaspleef is Seth Bling’s innovative take on the classic Minecraft mini-game, Spleef. The objective is to be the last players standing on a giant pizza. Players earn bonuses such as super speed or jump boosts by mining each of the toppings . It’s a deliciously chaotic quest for glory!

Raider’s Refuge by Blockworks
Raider's Refuge (1)

Raiders Refuge is an exciting survivial map in Realms. Start your game here and you’ll spawn in a majestic settlement sitting on a rugged coastline. It’s perfect for playing out pirate fantasies before venturing into the unknown.

Spellbound Caves by Vechs

Spellbound Caves is a Capture the Monument map by Vechs – one of the pioneers of the genre. It’s one part of his Super Hostile series which is notorious for it’s challenging nature. I’m sure you’ve got the skills required though – you look like a hardy crafter.

Winter Stronghold by Blockworks
Winter Stronghold (1)

Winter Stronghold is our second survival map. Instead of beginning your adventure in a random spawn, players start in this prebuild stronghold complete with all its wintery charm. Gather supplies, plan your journey, then head into the wild.

That’s it for now! Hope you enjoyed this rundown. Visit our Realms site for more.

Have a great weekend everyone,

Owen – @bopogamel
