Latest News & Updates From MINECON 2016

Hey gamers!

Whew! We’re tired, that’s for sure. Here at Minecon 2016 we’ve been running around like a couple of crazy people trying to meet everyone and experience all of the awesome stuff Minecraft and Mojang has put together for us!

In that vein, we’ve been taking a lot of notes over the weekend to help put together this blog post, to outline the latest news and additions coming / released from MINECON 2016. We hope this list helps you prepare for Minecraft in the future, and hopefully give you some great ideas to put together on your Minecraftserver.net server!

Minecraft Chinese Mythology Mash-up


Coming to us on Oct 4, existing owners of Minecraft: Console Edition will be able to download the new Chinese Mythology Mash-Up pack for just $4.99. This pack will include a pre-made world that features an ancient city with dragons dwelling in the high mountains of the world.

It will also include 41 brand-new skins, 13 themed music tracks for your world, and a special map for the Battle mini game. With this new mash-up you’ll get a free update that’ll introduce polar bears and their babies roaming through the frozen biomes, new items, blocks, banners, and terrain generation! Check it out in the video below.

VR & Boss Fights!

If you’re into VR like we are here (HTC VIVE FTW!), you’re going to be really excited about this next update. Coming Oct 18th to the Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta, Minecraft Pocket and Minecraft Gear VR Edition, are the very first boss battles for Minecraft, which includes tweaks and changes to the Elder Guardian, Wither Boss, and more.

Along with the VR and boss battles, you will also now have “Addons” which will be simple text files that allow you to tweak the world of Minecraft. You will be able to download free examples on Minecraft.net in the future.

New Input Options

Also during the Oct 18th update, we should be expecting some new input options for Minecraft, including the Xbox Wireless Controller with Bluetooth, along with Oculus Touch support coming shortly thereafter.

minecraft 1.10.2 update

Minecraft Update 1.10.2 – Problem Solver

Hello fellow Minecrafters! We’re here with a quick blog update letting you know about the latest 1.10.2 update that helps solve a lot of the problems our users and many other users all over the world were having with the last update 1.10.1.

If you’re a customer of Minecraftserver.net, you can already update to it, just save your world and update using the dropdown in your control panel.

Here are the details of the update:

This is a smaller update taking care of some of the most annoying reported bugs. We are also planning to release another update for 1.10.x in a few weeks that takes care of some less critical but still annoying issues. – Mojang

Issues fixed in version 1.10.2:

[Bug MC-103981] – Missing BlockEntity (Piston_Extension, …)
Issues fixed in version 1.10.1:

  • [Bug MC-85162] – Slight player/mob offset when on Farmland Block
  • [Bug MC-99914] – DataWatcher / EntityMetadata ID is based on the class load order
  • [Bug MC-100333] – Entities from old (<= 1.5.2) worlds are killed when loaded in current versions due to a typo in the health data fixer
  • [Bug MC-102072] – Structure Block: Unable to navigate in the “structure name” field of structure blocks, using the arrow-keys, pos1, end or the delete key
  • [Bug MC-102867] – chat key bound to unicode char causes crash in creative inventory
  • [Bug MC-103177] – Missing subtitles for polar bears, strays, husks, and wither skeletons
  • [Bug MC-103497] – End Dragon Does not respawn

If you experience crashes during multiplayer sessions, we need to know if you were playing on a vanilla server or a modified server. We still get crash reports in our backend systems that we can’t reproduce and we need more information to analyze that problem. It seems to be a rare but annoying problem for some players.
