    Isn't it a case of starting a new world to take advantage of new features like the other updates?

    Nope. No jungles.

    To be honest though they need to increase the map size before they start adding new biomes, or else we'll have biomes of a pitiful size in order to cram them all in, and thats if they spawn at all. Can you imagine a complete lack of a desert because the game had to make room for a jungle area?

    True, although i would prefer a Jungle to the Desert.

    For about an hour. And then you realise you want glass and have to go on a month long expedition to find the 34 blocks of sand which spawned between the 50,000 blocks of dirt.

    I like Minecraft on PC more. How do you prefer to play? Survival mode or creative? :D

    Grabbed a copy of this yesterday after wanting it for quite some time and after spending a good amount of time in the training world learning what's what I started a survival game. Love it, built my first house and got some tools and wepons up together then began to venture out and explore very briefly before ending my session there.

    Even from my one session I can see the possibilites are near endless with the crafting and building but what I want to know (never played Minecraft before on any platform) is am I working towards something? Do I just need to keep exploring the world I'm in? I feel like I am missing something.

    I really wish they didn't play about with the lighting in the latest patch. It breaks down all too often...

    Ok cool, cheers ubergine.

    I'm look forward to getting back on the game and just tooling around at the moment to be honest I just wasn't sure if I should be heading towards something or not. Glad I'm not and I can just go nuts in my own time.

    Really looking forward to seeing what this game has to offer.

    It has been utterly broken! Can't believe that wasn't spotted in testing...

    In some cases you can fix it by altering the lighting in the environment with a torch, but sometimes it's stubborn.

    I started a new map on Friday to try out the update and my new map is quite a good one.

    Directly below spawn is a Zombie spawn and 7 diamonds. All the biome's are there and nice rivers too. The Mushroom Biome is nice and big and right close to spawn is a desert with a lava pool and water pool right next to it = EASY Obsidian... .

    I went to the Nether very close to the spawn and it opened in a Nether Wart patch and right behind is a HUGE fortress with 2 Blaze spawns and other things.

    Also there are 2 villages back in the normal world and both have a Blacksmith with a chest = free diamonds and armor...

    All in all its a very good map. I am back into work on Wednesday and will post the seed if anyone is interested..?

    Had a great sesson last night and got lots of mining and building done, I managed to dig a tunnel between two hills and built a house on each one. This idea came about because when I opened my door one morning two Creepers where waiting for me. Now I have an escape.

    Just before I turned the game of I watched the sunrise through a well placed window in my second place and spotted a scary looking monster, it was tall, skinny and extremely fast, zipping around the landscape. What the hell was it?

    @L_Franko:
    Don't look at it!
    Well, don't look at it directly as it easily offends and it can teleport too...
    It's an Enderman...Warps around and moves blocks around...Hates water...

    If you look directly at it it becomes aggressive, otherwise it's quite calm...

    Ah, cheers for the info.
    If they hate water then I small be building a moat around my next building project.

    They'll teleport over...

    Though another of it's weaknesses is it needs at least three blocks height of empty space to move...

    So if your ceiling is at a height of two blocks he can't get to you...
    Or just part of your house as an Enderman shelter...

    Understood, I think I might just do that.
    I'm guessing it isn't a good idea to get in a fight with one.

    I really wish I stuck to one map, rather than starting over and over again. All those wasted hours of progress. This time it'll be different.

    Hopefully...

    So what you're saying is go nuts with the torches. Luckily I've already got a load of light source in my building already so I should be safe from a monster spawning in my safe zones.

    I just remembered that I found a opening deep underground with some groaning coming from the darkness but I swiftly blocked it back up again as I was too scared to explore it. I'll go back tonight and torch that place up. Made a steel sword so should have a good enough weapon to deal with the nasties. As long as they come at me one by one.

    Dammit. I was out. I was safe. Now you're all dragging me back in. Why can't you all be excited about Terraria instead.
