How to add PocketMine-MP servers on 0.7.4

Ever since Mojang took down Pocket-Mine, their servers are still available, so here's a tutorial on how to add servers (Like LBSG) on 0.7.4

Tutorial: https://github.com/PocketMine/PocketMine-MP/wiki/How-to-add-servers

[NOTE]: The website is currently down and it will be back online again in a few hours.

0.7.4 release date

Johan Bernhardsson stated that the 0.7.4 update might be released on Monday.

[Fun Fact]
- The update is now available for Android and Amazon users


[Succeeded]Pocket-Mine Realms are closed and out of service

A while ago on Twitter, the Pocket-Mine team tweeted that they'll be shutting down Pocket-Mine for good until Mojang lets them be online again. But Johan still allowed them to join servers by external IP on 0.7.4. You can still play on some LBSG servers by putting their external IP

Update: the Pocket-Mine team has now released a compatible version for 0.7.4

0.7.4 is out and 0.8.0 is started! Yay!!!

0.7.4 is out!!! But only for amazon devices.....lol and as you can see Mojang AB is already working on the 0.8.0 update and they are having problems at the moment haha. Hopefully they finish it quick :D People have been waiting a long time for the 0.8.0 update because it is said to contain some redstone and/or infinite worlds....which are also rumored to be in 0.9.0

Minecraft:Xbox 360 Mash-up pack

 Those who are wondering a Mash-up pack makes Minecraft look like another game, so basically Textures + Skin Pack + User inference + Music + also Themed world .

So excited

New admin - Falkirks

Hello everyone,

I'm helping out Spartan on the blog while he is busy.
A little background about myself: I work on both Minecraft PE Forums and MCPE YouTubers Forums as a staff member, I am an avid contributor to Minecraft Wiki. I do some coding and web design work around a few test projects of mine and other sites. I don't have YouTube or Twitter for my you to look at (just personal use) but I go by Falkirks and Falkirknh so if you see anyone with that username it probably is me :p

In the real world I am hugely obsessed with Shakespeare and have read a lot of his plays (I tried to count but it was no use). I act in a variety of theatre with my school and other stuff. Other than that I love camping, reading and of course MINECRAFT :D

I'm also a world class troll :p

So, if anyone wants to see something new on the blog just comment below and I will try to set it up for you!


MCPE enderman concept

So i was browsing through my twitter feed and someone that i was following posted this concept picture of a enderman is MCPE, this picture is blury so there's nothing i can do about that and it looks like the concept was for made in version 0.4.0


Flint and Steel in Creative mode will be in 0.8.0

Tomasso Checchi replied to someone on twitter saying that in 0.7.4 (the current version we are in now) that you could ignite TNT using lava.
For more info follow tomasso checchi on twitter @_tomcc


So finally we get some Minecraft news on the Playstation, so it is official that it will be called Minecraft Playstation Edition and there is a concept picture of what it will look like on the playstation (very similar to Xbox)

If you want more info follow @MCPSNews on twitter


Already on it and done!

It turns out that when looking at realms they found 3 crash bugs in 0.7.3, but they already took care of it in 0.7.4 :D So if you had a problem with Minecraft Pocket Edition crashing when on a server or lbsg, they have now fixed it so hopefully it wont happen again.
They are on a role, anyways 0.7.4 should be out by Monday next week if not sooner or later.

New World generator for PC Minecraft

(Taken from the post; i did not make this)

Hey hey!

I thought it was time I gave you an update on the world generator changes we’ve been working on. The last time we did any major changes to the generator was back in March 2012, when the jungle biome was added.

In case you don’t know what a “biome” is, it’s a climate zone used in the game to set what kind of surface the ground has (sand? grass?), whether it should rain or snow, what trees grow there, and sometimes also what kind of animals that are allowed to spawn there. The biome is also used to determine how hilly it should be, although this is a technical solution because biomes are generated before the elevation (the old generator created the elevation first, and decided on biomes based on elevation).

One reason why we rarely do changes to the world generator is because every little change off-sets the world seed and causes noticeable borders between new and old terrain. A lot of people don’t mind about these borders, but we still want to avoid creating them. So, in order to avoid needing to change the world generator again in the nearest future, we try to do as many changes now as possible.

There have been three main problems we have wanted to address:

-Too large oceans
-Too uneven/random biome placement
-Not enough variation
-The solution to these problems have been,

-Tweaks to add more islands and checks to avoid huge oceans
-Biomes have been put into four main categories: snow-covered, cold, medium, and dry/warm. -Biomes will avoid getting placed next to a biome that is too different to itself (sometimes this still happens, but it’s very rare now and not all over the place)
-We’ve added a whole bunch of new biomes…
… and most biomes have uncommon/rare variations that you may run into
-We’ve also added a bunch of new terrain features, such as new flowers and trees

We’re not done yet, but here’s something to give you an idea of what has happened

Flint n steel in creative

Tommaso Checchi recently posted on twitter that flint n steal might be in creative in 0.7.4/0.8.0 and will be used against creepers to blow them up in MCPE, its not comfirmed yet.

New Author

As of this moment, the blog now has a new author:

From this day forth, he'll be handling PE and PC updates (same as me), and also do spotlights for mods, tutorials, texture packs, skins, etc.

Also, i'll be adding another author to handle updates for the consoles (PS4, PS3, PSVita, Xbox 360, and Xbox One)

Hiring a second author

My friend on Twitter suggested that the blog must also do other updates from other versions of Minecraft. So as of this time, i'm hiring someone to handle PC Minecraft updates and Xbox 360 updates.

I may be adding and changing more stuff soon :D


Minecraft - Pocket Edition trivias

1. In the lite version, Oak trees had Spruce tree logs, depending on your world. It is unclear if this is a bug or if it is intentional.
2. Players can have skins on the iOS version and Android and the lite version by replacing char.png in the app file. However, the chosen skin will appear as another player's skin if playing over local Wi-Fi.[16]
3. In the demo video, before the game was released, smooth lighting was available. It was taken out due to bugs being produced on a wide range of devices. As of 0.7.0, it is on by default and can be toggled in Options under the "Experimental" section, meaning that it is still under testing.
4. Worlds played before 0.3.0 update had the other wool and sugar cane (block).
5. The terrain.png file in the APK file found on Android devices is nearly identical to that in the PC version, containing textures for items unimplemented in the Pocket Edition (e.g., cauldron, End Portal).
6. It is possible to play multiplayer over Bluetooth even though it is not coded into the game.Tutorial here. (not available since iOS 6)
7. The Indev wall is also cut by the height limit allowing players to go over it.
8. By placing ladders on the TOP of blocks at the edge of a map (stacking ladders on the top of ladders also works) it is possible to place ladders on the Indev wall as if it were a solid block.
9. Blocks that "snap to" other blocks such as torches, glass panes, and fences will "snap to" the indev wall as if it were an existing block. Torches only do this if an attempt is made to place them on a block they can't be placed on such as ladders.
10. The rose is textured to a cyan color. Even though its considered a rose, it cannot be crafted into dye; rose red dye is obtained by smelting red mushrooms instead.
11. If you have any kind of modifier or command to give yourself any item in the Minecraft entity folder (e.g. iron door) the background of the non-existing entity will appear red meaning it does not exist or was never meant to.
12. The average placing/destroying block range is 4-6 on the PC version but for the iOS/Android is 6-9.
13. Baby animals are in Pocket Edition, but spawn naturally (or with spawn eggs in Creative); animals cannot be actually bred yet.
14. Skeletons are significantly less accurate in Pocket Edition than PC or Xbox, making them easier to fight.
15. Zombie Pigmen are missing the hat layer of their texture on their heads.
16. Zombie Pigmen are NOT neutral in Pocket Edition. They will attack you on sight, and inflict heavy damage in groups. Considering they only spawn from the Nether Reactor, this means they can be very difficult to fight: You must collect the items as well as deal with the Zombie Pigmen, while in a relatively small space.
17. In Creative mode, there are spawn eggs for passive mobs, but not hostile mobs. This may be because hostile mobs are still aggressive in creative mode, and this is probably going to be changed.
18. Before 0.7.0, players on fire would see 2 transparent orange panels in front of their face that resembled the water texture from iPhone versions, or the old water in Minecraft.
19. On Kindle Fire, updates won't appear until a long time after the update is released, however, due to the Kindle Fire being based off a modified Android OS, if you hold the current MCPE in your menu, and press "Remove from Device", then you can afterwards download any android MCPE update .apk file, tap on it in a file manager that you can download from the appstore, and install it normally, allowing you to play an update before any other Kindle Fire user, provided you find a .apk of an MCPE update download link on the internet or by transferring it from an Android device to a Kindle Fire, using a computer.
20. Due to the auto-jump feature, if one opens the inventory or pause menu at the same time as jumping or swimming, one can go on auto-pilot and the player would jump, walk and/or swim without any commands. Auto-pilot ends once the pause menu or inventory is closed.
21. In 0.7.3, the moving title screen in the background is copied from the PC Edition of Minecraft
