There's a Pre-Release Version of the adventure update available now!

It's quite buggy (and extremely laggy :D), but you can download it here (http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/611468-want-to-play-18-early-heres-how/)

10-09-2011, 06:56 PM

Haven't found any NPC villages yet though, maybe they're just in the actual 1.8 release.

10-09-2011, 07:13 PM
nope, ive found 2.

both in deserts funnily enough....

and found those huge minecart cave things :D

10-09-2011, 08:27 PM
i walked around for 30 minutes, havent found anything interesting :/

just the swampy biome and a couple of weird looking mountains >.<

anyone found a ravine yet? want to see one of those :p

10-09-2011, 09:08 PM
ive saw loads,
and villages,

and rivers :D

we cant find a mountain large enough to house our castle -,-

10-09-2011, 09:31 PM
Don't put it on a mountain, there's no room for the castle village! :(

Also, those huge mountain ranges seem a bit overdone, and it's all still quite buggy.. (especially with the lighting and chunk loading) but those new river/wetlands/grass plains/rain forest/swamp biomes are awesome though! but STILL NO VILLAGES/RUINS!

I've also tried to log in again with 1.7.3, but it says an error with the code: 503 for logging in on minecraft.net/game/joinserver.jsp.. does this mean they're patching right now?

minecraft.net is down, has been for hours.

we havent put the castle on a mountain, although theres a mountain range nearby.

also a lovely desert, and a swamp, and a river, and a pumpkin!

I didn't see any village or river yet, but except for that i can't complain :D

I was watching my cousin play it last night, he found rivers, ravines, village, abandoned mineshaft, lots of blue spiders, and I love the way the lighting works in 1.8

I killed an enderman with one hit of a stone pickaxe... they seem to be pretty weak o.O

11-09-2011, 12:21 PM
found a ravine now, but nothing else, not even an enderman and i fought my way through 4 nights..... :(

anyone found a stronghold yet? they seem nice. :p

13-09-2011, 04:38 PM
what's wrong with spawn location?

13-09-2011, 05:23 PM
strongholds are within a 400 block radius of coords 0,0,0

the lightning is fucking epic,
and endermon are stupidly weak, although still scary. xD

13-09-2011, 07:16 PM
endermon, i choose you!

*hits endermon with fist*

*endermon dies*

yes, i just made a pokemon reference.

13-09-2011, 08:32 PM
oh dear.
