4J Studios has already announced that the Minecraft Xbox 360 TU 13 will be a bug fix update. This is mainly the reason why the Minecraft forum site is now abuzz with many bugs found by fans. 4J Studios is keeping a close watch on the thread.
User Chirrou has brought up the issue of the lava bug: "When the new update came, whenever I'd pass by the lava, it would turn my whole screen red even if I'm just passing through a doorway. It doesn't matter how many times I've replaced the lava or pass the lava, it still turns my screen red."
4J has also noted that this will be looked into, with the possibility of including it in the TU 13 bug fix update.
A number of bugs were also raised by JaydenTheCreeper, most of which are now being looked into by the developer. His list of bugs includes the following:
- Man-made water pools can disappear for some seconds
- Sugarcane sometimes stays for awhile after water is removed
- Mobs can suddenly have their heads spinning even when the body barely moves
- A massive lag for multiplayer playing with the same console
- Capes have a glitch when riding full speed in a mine cart
- Inability to get Hot Topic Achievements
- No drops from chickens when killed by ocelots
Rocky 5 has even provided a video of a lighting glitch that he found. According to him, "Like a lot of people, redstone lamp emitting light when it's off. Can be fixed by placing a block in front of said lamp. Got a video of it in action."
Two more issues that the forum member found include fence items not having a full-360 mesh when joined to a block, as well as the piston glitch that extend even when the main block looks closed.
There are also some issues that fans may mistake as bugs, but are really natural in the game. For instance, ELECTR1C pointed out the speed of the new minecart as a possible bug, but 4J Studios commented that the speed matches that of the PC.
Skyrim as up and coming mash-up pack?
4J Studios has promised fans that there will be a lot of mash-up packs coming out after the Mass Effect Mash-up Pack, which will be available at 10am UK time tomorrow, according to the developers.
"The trial version of the Mash-up Pack has everything the full version has, except the skins are locked, and you can't save your world," said 4J Studios
For those who are wondering if you can host or join a game with a trial mash-up pack, 4J Studios announced that you can easily do so, but will be required to download the pack if you don't have the specific pack installed yet.
On the Minecraft forum, a poll on what fans would most like to see as a mash-up pack is currently being held, with the top five games being Skyrim (with a whopping 46% of votes), Halo, Fallout, BioShock, and Star Wars. But according to 4J Studios, Call of Duty and Borderlands are potential contenders as well.
Fans have also started to request a number of new ideas and suggestions. User Tamorr suggests a fantasy adventure mash-up pack tied up with Square Enix's many RPG games.
Scare games Silent Hill and Resident Evil are also gaining attention in the forums, which could make for an interesting world created via Mash-up Pack.
