I'm guessing the cream, powder, and the eye will have something to do with the potions feature

Notch also stated that there will be 2 more major additions to the game before it's code locked mid October for the final build in November. I hope this means bosses and Aether, could also be mod API.

I think Notch and Jeb_ wanted to use that time to get some bug-crunching done, at least that's what the Twitter feeds seem to suggest.

Just the past few updates were great. I can't wait for the final relase and the need to no longer refresh the worlds. I think they need to add code to the game to convert old worlds to new ones based on what chucks that were edited. The funny part is someone made a plugin like this a wile ago.

Time to buy my ticket to minecon.Go for it your the closest, and get a cape if you go. Just take lots of pictures and a video or 2.

I added a video of the potion at work in the first post.

Looks like we got some new images for upcoming features:

Enchantment Table

You need to install it to the ".minecraft" folder in
Users > (You) > AppData (this folder may be hidden) > Roaming > .minecraft > bin
Copy the minecraft.jar that's in there, save it somewhere, then replace it with the new 1.9pre2 .jar

--- Update ---

once the game patches up for real, change it back to the old .jar file

In the prerelease, there are 161 brewable unique potions. Unless we change it, there will be 2,653 with all ingredients added.

The wiki has already found the basic "clean" potions that don't require a lot of work:

I am just going to waste all of my slimeballs and sugar on this shit.

Okay, despite the "rarity" of slimes, we encounter a FUCKTON in our Hamachi server, they are actually a nuisance because they keep clipping with the low ceilings.

That server may be running mods to spawn them more for pistons.

Excuse you? I am an Alpha tester for Minecraft, I payed my dues. We play on a Hamachi network because we have not yet set up a server. I pay for good games!

--- Update ---

Also, to clarify, our server does not use our plugins to reduce or increase the likelihood of particular enemies to spawn.

In any event if you would like we may have extra space on the server. Ask Assassin for pricing information.
