Minecraft Server Updated to 1.5

Minecraft has been updated to 1.5, so I have updated the server as well. There is no official build for Bukkit yet, so we are running an early development build that supports 1.5. There might be issues, bugs, and crashes. I have backed up the server before upgrading though, so if we run into problems we can always roll back to before the update. 1.5 is a pretty huge update with a focus on redstone, so get to building guys. I am looking forward to seeing all the new awesome machines.

Full release notes below:

    • Each texture can have its own resolution and may be animated by putting the frames underneath each other – A text file is needed to specify frame order and duration

Blocks & Items

Additions
  • Activator Rail
  • Block of Redstone
  • Daylight Sensor
    • The crafting recipe is 3 Wooden Slabs, 3 Nether Quartz and 3 Glass blocks
    • Outputs a signal with a strength corresponding to the intensity of the sun
    • Only works with the sun’s light (not man made light such as torches)
    • Rain affects the sensor’s output
  • Dropper
    • The crafting recipe is 7 Cobblestones and 1 Redstone
    • Places items in containers in front of them, if there is no container it will dispense the item without using it
    • A dispenser ‘shoots’ items at you, while a dropper ‘throws’ items at you[6]
    • Can face all 6 directions, with a different texture when facing up or down
    • Need redstone signal to drop items
    • Fires once when the input becomes powered
    • Redstone signal emitted when a Redstone Comparator is placed against it directly – signal length depends on its fullness
  • Hopper
  • Minecart with Hopper[8]
    • Crafting recipe is a hopper on top of a minecart
    • Can only be emptied by passing over a hopper
    • Can pick up items from containers when it passes over
  • Minecart with Spawner entity[9]
    • Only obtainable with world editors
    • Have only the entity not the item
    • Uses the same NBT format as a normal Spawner
  • Minecart with TNT
    • The crafting recipe is 1 TNT and 1 Minecart
    • Triggered by Activator Rails
    • Explodes even more violently the faster it goes
    • In Creative mode when left clicked while moving, the Minecart with TNT explodes
    • Doesn’t destroy rails and supporting blocks
    • Still blows up redstone materials
  • Redstone Comparator
    • Based on the idea of the Capacitor mentioned at Minecon 2012
    • The crafting recipe is 3 Redstone Torches, 1 Nether Quartz and 3 Stone
    • It is the same as a repeater, but with 2 inputs
      • If input A is stronger or equal to input B, it either repeats the signal or outputs the difference between A and B, so this can be used as an easier way make redstone contraptions like Piston Doors
        • Output is toggleable by right clicking
      • If input A is weaker than input B, then there is no output
    • All containers output a redstone signal when a Redstone Comparator is placed against it directly. The strength of it depends on how full the container is and what disc number is used in a Jukebox
      • This works with Trapped Chests as well, meaning it can provide two redstone signals with different causes at the same time
  • Trapped Chest
    • The crafting recipe is 1 Chest, and 1 Tripwire Hook
    • Gives out a signal depending on the amount of players looking inside
    • Large Trapped Chests can be staggered with Large Chests to allow more compact storage
    • Transmit signal downward through one block. This does not apply horizontally[10]
    • Texture is slightly different than a normal chest, with a red stain around the latch
  • Weighted Pressure Plate
    • Used to detect item drops
    • Gold(light) version reaches full strength at 60 items
    • Iron(heavy) version reaches full strength at 600 items
    • Linear, so 10 strength signal means twice as many items as a 5 strength signal
  • Nether Brick (item)
  • Nether Quartz
  • Nether Quartz Ore
    • Drops 1 Nether Quartz item when mined
    • Can be smelted in a Furnace to obtain Nether Quartz

    • The crafting recipe is 3 Block of Quartz
    • Can be placed upside down same all other slabs
    • Decorative block
  • Quartz Stairs
    • The crafting recipe is 6 Block of Quartz in a usual stair recipe
    • Can be placed upside down same all other stairs
    • Updated to corner same all other stairs
  • Chiseled Quartz Block
  • Pillar Quartz Block
  • Multiple snow heights
    • Fully implemented – previously, a world editor could be used for different heights of snow
    • Drops one snowball for every layer of snow
    • Each level of snow has its own height collision
      • The topmost layer of snow does not have collision, so the player is always slightly sunken in the snow
      • Visually, four layers of snow is the same height as a slab. However, five layers of snow has the same collision height as a slab
    • Crafting recipe is 3 snow blocks in a row to create 6 snow layers
      • For each thin layer of snow crafted, the player loses exactly half the snowballs required to produce it
  • Sandstone Double Slab
    • Place two sandstone slabs on top of each other
    • The block ID is 43:9

      • 4 layers: 50 blocks (previously 40)
  • Bone Meal
    • Slightly nerfed
    • Now picks a random stage of growth each time as opposed to automatically pushing them to the final growth stage
    • Saplings take 2-4 bone meal to sprout into a tree
    • Gives off green particles when used
  • Brewing Stand
    • Redstone signal emitted when a Redstone Comparator is placed against it directly – signal length depends on its fullness
  • Chest
    • Redstone signal emitted when a Redstone Comparator is placed against it directly – signal length depends on its fullness
  • Detector Rail
    • Redstone signal emitted when a Redstone Comparator is placed against it directly – signal length depends on the fullness of the container on the rail
    • Added activated detector rail texture
  • Dispenser
    • Now equip armor to players that are up to 1 block away
    • Can place and activate TNT
    • Now use Bone Meal on a crop or sapling in front of them
    • Can create fire in front of them with Flint and Steel, which consumes durability
    • They can now face all 6 directions, and use a different texture when facing up or down
    • No longer fire while updated, instead they fire when their input becomes powered
    • Redstone signal emitted when a Redstone Comparator is placed against it directly – signal length depends on its fullness
  • Jukebox
    • Redstone signal emitted when a Redstone Comparator is placed against it directly – signal length depends on the number of the disc used.
  • Lava
    • Updated texture
  • Locked Chest
    • Textures put in individual files, nothing for the Locked Chest to use.
    • Now uses the “Missing Texture” texture
  • Nether Brick
  • Stairs

    • Double stone slabs now have a block ID of 43:8
    • This allows double stone slabs to be given through commands
  • Water
    • Creating an infinite water source no longer needs a block underneath, but has to have a water source block.
    • This means you won’t ruin rivers or oceans with Buckets

Mobs

Improvements & Changes
  • All Mobs
    • Mobs no longer walk over rails unless they are pursuing the player
  • Skeleton
    • Now shoot from 16 blocks away, instead of 10

    • They shoot players one block away
  • Slimes
    • Slime spawn rates in swamps now depend on the current moon phase.[11]
  • Zombie
    • Added some difficulty-scaling behavior
