Minecraftmodloader.org, the leading independent news and updates site for the popular PC game Minecraft, said that the new update was one of the biggest and boldest undertaken by the games developers so far, adding a whole new experience again. The developers had also taken into account user feedback, before incorporating this into the changes.
The biggest change of all is the new Adventure Mode, which allows players to create their own adventures and develop their own stories for other players using a special new block known as the Redstone Command Block, which gives designers the ability to program new scripted events in the game.
For example, a simple adventure would be a standard fetch quest created by the player, wherein he would go to collect a certain item to gain experience. The complexity of the adventures would depend entirely on the user creates them.
Together with the new Adventure Mode, players will now have the ability to trade items with villagers. They can buy and sell items, and they can even use newly added emeralds to enchant certain items. This is an important development because users will be able to place blocks or destroy them while in Adventure Mode.
Another important new feature is the new Demo Mode, which allows non subscribers are three five-day trial of the game in single player mode. In addition, there is a wealth of new items for players to collect, including Ender chests, tripwire, writable books and much more.
