Minecraft Pocket Edition being rethought
Laurence Howe / 5 years ago
After lots of negative feedback regarding the Minecraft Pocket Edition, Mojang have decided to rethink the game, and change it in future updates.
Daniel Kaplan posted the following on his blog:
“As I stated in a previous post we had an initial plan of making Minecraft: Pocket Edition more like Minecraft Creative.
But alas we were wrong. We have read tons of comments and feedback and it seems like we made a huge mistake. You wanted monsters, resources, animals and more different blocks.
This means that the initial code we had written didn’t exactly fit with the new plan where we wanted to add all the stuff you have been asking for. So we have been reorganising, rewritten and changed the whole plan for Minecraft: Pocket Edition.
In the background a lot of stuff has changed to support the survival aspects of the game.
You will see some neat looking animals and new blocks. Crafting won’t be in this update since we need to redesign the GUI for it and it will need some iteration and thinking.
But the great part is that the foundation for survival will be mostly done and we can throw out much more fun updates! Yay! 😀 And hopefully the progress of the updates will be much more faster. Oh, and of course some bug-fixing have been done too. Doors and fences will be in there too!”
He added that the first in a series of planned updates will go live for both Android and iOS by 8th February.
