    • Example: /testfor @p {Inventory:[{Slot:6b,id:"minecraft:diamond_sword"}],SelectedItemSlot:6}
  • Scoreboard objectives for fake players with a name starting with # will never show up on the sidebar
  • New /scoreboard subcommands /scoreboard operation and /scoreboard test

    • Example: @a[rxm=-15,rx=15,rym=-45,ry=45]
  • Players in team can now have a team based objective shown on the sidebar, depending on the team color
    • Example: /scoreboard objectives setdisplay team.yellow anotherObjective
  • While debug overlay is on (press F3 to turn it on and off), looking at a block in the world will show the coordinates of that block
  • BlockItem instances can now hold a custom NBT tag that is merged into a block entity when it’s placed
    • Example: /give @p command_block 1 0 {BlockEntityTag:{Command:"setblock ~ ~ ~ minecraft:diamond_block"}}
  • In creative mode, players can create a copy of a BlockEntity in their hotbar, including all NBT data, with ctrl+[PICK_KEY] (usually ctrl+middle mouse button)
  • The /tellraw command can now insert values from scoreboards into messages
    • Example: /tellraw @p {text:"Have ",extra:[{score:{name:"Searge",objective:"reward"}},{text:" diamonds"}]}

    • Example: /testforblocks 100 64 100 107 69 107 0 64 0 masked

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).

[MAP] Buoyzure

Singleplayer Storyline Introduction:
Engage in an epic adventure of truth and definition as you, Griffin Engel, struggle to gain a heroic repuation and save your community from a deathly curse. 
Multiplayer Stroyline: (Same story except altered for 2 main characters)
Griffin Engel and Lance Engel, sons of a late wealthy father, have lost hope in their lives after being left alone. When they are given a task by the Oracle in their basement, they spring into action and take advantage of the offer.
The download button will bring you to a dropbox page with 3 different versions of the map. You can choose from singleplayer easy mode, singleplayer hard mode, and multiplayer mode. Multiplayer mode is 2 player only. Simply click/ tap the version you want and choose “download”.
The rules are in the map, so without further ado, go embark on the greatest adventure in Minecraft: Pocket Edition yet! 
Credits are at the end of the map as well.
Please do not give this map away on other websites, although you may link this MCPEUniverse link to share with friends!
Side Notes:
-The “Make a Wish” chest is supposed to be empty, so don’t report it as a bug please. It is symbolic.
-If the download contains a “MAC OSX” folder or something similar, just ignore it and put the world file in your minecraftworlds folder.
Last Update- January 6th, 2014 6:49 EST
Version 1.0.2: Fixes some overly difficult climbing.
To update your existing map, simply re-download the map and drag & replace the chunks.dat file from the newly downloaded version to your existing map file. 
This will reset all redstone alternatives, which should not be an issue unless you are on multiplayer and each player is on a different side of the redstone door. Feel free to break blocks if this issue occurs.
