Pocket and W10 edition v0.16.0


So a few days ago the update to pocket edition and Windows 10 edition was release, V0.16.0. This update is a biggy as for the first time it allows add-ons, these allow more customisation of the game content by adding tags to different mob. So now you have the ability to make chickens rideable, or creepers explode with greater force. In addition you can also now save and download world that you create to Minecraft Realms, which is a Microsoft cloud hosted, pay per month, server. This will make playing with friends easier in the future. And also, in addition to those massive changes the following has been added to the game.

  • Ocean Monuments
  • Guardians and Elder Guardians
  • Prismarine, dark prismarine & prismarine bricks
  • Prismarine shard & prismarine crystal
  • Sea lantern
  • The Wither!
  • Nether star
  • Beacon
  • Wet & dry sponges
  • Slash commands (with a handy auto complete feature). Enable cheats for a world in the options screen for access, but note that Xbox Live achievements will be disabled when you’re using ‘em!
  • Custom key bindings! Hooray for lefties!
  • A new Creative inventory search feature
  • Add-On section for world settings
  • You can change game modes in Realms (note that doing this will restart the realm)
  • Ability to upload & download worlds in Realms
  • Ability to promote players as operators in Realms

So all in all this is one massive update with loads of new and excited content, and has the ability to expand on what is possible for us at our Club Minecraft events.
