Biomes. Basically as you traverse the landscape the enviroment changes. Some of it is major, snow, desert, forest, etc.
Alot of it is very subtle. Colors of grass and leaves change. The color of the sky changes. Water too.
Torches will soon be temporary means of light. However he added Pumpkins to the game. They are found in odd little clusters in tundra areas.

You're supposed to be able to carve them into Jack-O-Lanters but they are glitched and are already carved.
If you put a torch inside one they light up. They never burn out and make more light than the torches do.

Also the deeper you dig into the earth the more sources of light you'll need to see. Meaning more enemies spawning underground.





THE BIGGEST part of the update though is that now you can make portals to a world called The Slip. It's basically hell. In it everything is flammable. There's also gold. Massive lava waterfalls everywhere.
Lots of new rock types and 2 new creatures.

One creature is a peaceful race of pig-faced zombies. They dont attack you unless you attack them. Although they have such dumb faces it's rather hard to resist the urge.

The other is a creature called THE GHAST. Giant jellyfish things roughtly 17x17 blocks in size. With creepy faces that remind me of Yume Nikki. If they see you they shoot homing balls of fire out of their mouths that explode once they hit anything.

They are only in hell but they can get out if you build your hell portal in an area where they have room to spawn.

Theres other new stuff too. Sounds music etc.

Update is quite alright, I don't like how the first portal you make doesn't like to link up with your first portal in hell.

i love building nice looking shit with the environment in survival mode. right now im making an underwater glass dome that extends from land. The land part already has a hallway to a waterfall and a mining tunnel that got to lava.

This game kicks the dicks I love it.

it's  actually pretty easy to build underwater. get a whole ton of wood and make a dome with it. then cover it with glass, tunnel underneath, and use flint and steel to burn it out.
<+fawx> im trying to animate a dick coming out of a toaster how do i go on about doing this
<~rtil> well fawx what you would do is delete the fla and do something productive instead

<+ansel> i lure children into my van with candy and then i read them passages from 'the origin of species'
<%ropesnake> billy con ends with billy raping his cat
<+billymonks> FUCK YOU BUG

<~rtil> ya one time i gave this hobo some cat food and he ate it like the animal he is it pleased me

I can definitely stand better graphics if they can incorporate it as well as they do the simple ones

notch, the guy who makes the game, openly admits he's awful at art. most people find the textures a bit on the oogly side.

 hence why people make lots of skins for the game. hell theres even a patch that allows bigger textures than the 8x8 textures the game is set to default to.
hence, people use like HD textures in skins making it looks like a bizarre cube version of Fallout.

notch is adding a skin wrapper to the game soon so you'll be able to download skin packs and change the textures with ease as opposed to the rather frustrating way you have to do it now.

heres some neat skins people have made
