Minecraft Update For Mobile and Windows 10 Devices Adds Redstone
Parity, at last.
If you are one of the many players who are playing Minecraft on a mobile device running iOS or Android, or on PCs running Windows 10, then this should come as good news to you- a new update for the game has added one of the game’s most powerful tools to these builds. Redstone, which is now a fairly integral part of the building experience in Minecraft, is now available to the Windows 10 and mobile versions of the game.
This is something that has already been available for players of the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PS Vita, pre Windows 10 PC versions, and Mac versions of the game for a while now- so it’s good to see all versions finally achieve parity on this front.
The full patch notes follow:
- Redstone Circuits: Redstone Wire, Torch, Lamp, Levers, Buttons, Pressure plates, Tripwires, Trapped Chests and Detector Rails. Craft them all!
- Cute, fluffy, crop-eating, bunnies
- Desert temples
- New types of wooden doors
- Stonecutter (RIP)
- Herobrine (RIP)
- Redstone can be used to control doors, trapdoors, TNT and rails
- Faster boats with improved handling
- Increased item tooltip visibility time in Windows 10 Edition Beta
- Stack count labels now use a bigger and more readable font
- Slimes and Ghasts now actually spawn!
- Hunger restored by food items now match the PC version
- Flowers created by using Bone Meal on Grass now depend on the biome
- Skeletons now run away from Wolves
- Obsidian now breaks in 6.5 seconds rather than 3
- Minecarts now stack on top of each other
- Boats now stack
- Beetroot soup now stacks
- Fixed Curved Rail and Redstone behaviour
- Improved Slime spawning
- Block lag should be significantly reduced. Everything should feel more responsive now
- Updated door textures all over the place
- Even more Ghast and Slime spawning
- Mobs no longer suffocate in carpets (because that was kinda cruel)
- Held items now look better in first-person mode
- Loads of other bug fixes that are too boring to go into here
So… yeah. Pretty extensive fixes, these.
