Slytherin This was a pretty big update, my favorite thing in the new update is the different colored wood

The different color wood is really cool but I love the climb able vines and spawn eggs. Can't wait to use them to make a zombie map.


I would like to climb able vines better if them were on the jungle trees lol

PGA This update is awesome, but it does have a few bugs.


I'm not sure if Minecraft has had an update without bugs.

It's just apart of the game and how it is going to stay until everything is perfected.
