Bought Scrolls? Don’t forget to gift your free code!

xmas_ripper

 Hey guys,

You might remember this post from the end of last year. Basically, everyone who bought Scrolls before December 19th received a free Scrolls code to give to a buddy. Though lots of you have given your code away, there are still a few that haven’t been redeemed.

I mention this because the codes will only work for the next two weeks. After that they become a meaningless stream of letters and numbers, which is significantly less fun than playing Scrolls with a friend or loved one.

So do the right thing, eh? Log into your Mojang account and give the gift of Scrolls. It’s a very nice thing to do.

Have a great day!

Minecraft Snapshot 14w03b

14w03a

Update: 14w03b has been released to fix some bugs & crashes:

  • [Bug MC-44990] – Iron Bars, Regular Glass Panes and Cauldrons aren’t transparent.
  • [Bug MC-44993] – Custom player heads are messed up
  • [Bug MC-45004] – Placing clay pots crashes game
  • [Bug MC-45014] – Realms invited player skins are messed up
  • [Bug MC-45018] – Be killed makes your character lose his/her hat
  • [Bug MC-45026] – Hopper: java.lang.NullPointerException: Rendering screen

Snapshot time! We’ve fixed a whole bunch of bugs introduced in last weeks snapshots, introduced a few new commands and tweaked a few things that needed tweaking.

Notable additions for mapmakers:

  • /tp now supports rotation arguments
  • Player selectors (@p, @e, etc) now support cubic areas. For example: @e[x=0,y=0,z=0,dx=10,dy=10,dz=10] gets all entities between 0,0,0 and 10,10,10
  • Added /clone command to copy large areas to other areas
  • Added a /fill command to fill a large area with a block

To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” 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.

The first snapshot of Minecraft 1.8 has arrived! This update will be split into two primary focuses: Survival gameplay & improvements, and new fancy abilities for adventure maps! We’ve done a whole bunch of optimizing for both the client and server (with more to come!) and lots more work towards the Plugin API in the background. As this is the very first snapshot of 1.8, do remember to backup your worlds before trying it!

Big survival changes:

  • 3 new stone types!
  • Major Enchanting & Repairing changes!
  • Mossy stone bricks recipe!
  • Updated Villager trading!
  • Doors stack!
  • Slime blocks!
  • Lots of other tweaks, changes, bug fixes and secret features!

Big Adventure Map changes:

  • Adventure Mode no longer lets you place/destroy blocks.
  • But that can change!
  • Added Entity Selectors! Use @e in certain commands to target entities. You can limit it with [type=Chicken] or [type=!Skeleton]
  • Added a /blockdata command!
  • Added ‘Lock’ (String) NBT tag on most containers.
  • Added an optional entity parameter to /kill (try: /kill @e[type=!Player]
  • Added optional arguments to /clear for max item count (use 0 to not actually delete anything) & NBT data
  • Lots of other tweaks, changes, bug fixes and secret features!

To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” 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.

Happy holidays to all Battlefield fans!


Watching the snow gently fall on the Kunlun Mountains of Operation Locker, we at DICE are filled with pure holiday serenity (mixed of course with feelings of glorious all-out war chaos). And we hope you feel the same! We would like to take this opportunity to wish all Battlefield fans happy holidays.

We also would love to hear about how you’re planning to celebrate the upcoming festivites, Battlefield 4 style. Will you be dashing through the snow in the aforementioned Operation Locker? Playing Commander on your tablet by the fireplace? Or maybe just creating Christmas-themed emblems? Let us know!

Whatever you do, we wish you all the best and hope we will see you on the Battlefield!

The Minecraft Realms Beta has launched (in Sweden)!

fivehundredwide

Hi everyone,

You’ve probably heard of Minecraft Realms by now. It’s a paid service that lets you quickly create an online Minecraft world for you and friends to play in together. It’s simple to set-up, easy to manage, and configured from within the Minecraft client.

Your world is always online, even if you aren’t logged in. You can invite up to 20 friends to your Realm, and 10 can play at once. The whole thing is hosted on our servers and can be configured from inside Minecraft. It’s very jolly.

Minecraft Realms is currently available in Sweden for PC Minecraft only. Anyone who attended this year’s Minecon can also access Realms by redeeming the Realms pre-paid giftcard that came in their giftbag.

Screen Shot 2013-12-19 at 16.21.46

Realms subscriptions currently come with seven pre-made maps, including Blocks vs Zombies by SethBling, Dash of Doom by Dragnoz, and Spellbound Caves by Vechs. You can load them up, or create a completely random world if you prefer. Your Realm gets saved at regular intervals, so you can restore an earlier version if something goes wrong, or if someone burns down a creation you’ve spent months on. On that note, it’s easy to add and remove friends from your approved list. :)

If you’re based in Sweden, or one of the lucky few with access to Realms, you can log into your Minecraft account to start, or top-up, a subscription. Your world is currently saved for at least three months after your subscription runs out, so don’t worry if you forget to top up in time.

We’re currently offering three different package for Realms users. 30 days access costs €10, 90 days costs €26, and 180 days costs €46.

For more information, check out the official Realms website and FAQ.

Hope you found this post informative! Merry Christmas Minecrafters!

Owen and the Realms team : Leo, Daniel and Amir.
