More on Minecraft's Adventure Update

The Word of Notch has a "trickle" of information about the eventual version 1.8 "Adventure Update" for Minecraft, the sandbox adventure game:
The update is pretty big, and will change a lot of how Minecraft is played, focusing on making exploration and combat much more rewarding, and bringing in a bigger sense of adventure to the game.

Already implemented are new complex terrain features, at least one new mob, some interesting new combat mechanics, a new lighting engine, and some experimental new gameplay ideas. To come is more interesting farming, bigger incentives to explore, and npc villages.

Terraria has less people working on it and yet they still seem to do more frequent content patches that have much more content in them than minecraft That last patch was huge.
June 23, terraria patch added like 50 items and 8 monsters.
June 10, terraria patch added a couple dozen vanity items and over a dozen monsters.

I've said it before, I think Notch is spreading out too thin with his new resources, and doing it on weird projects (like that card thing he promised his friend he would do). They should concentrate on Minecraft until its done, perhaps plan for another project, but not devote significant resources to anything else until they are done with minecraft. Once minecraft is officially released, then go for expansions and start another project.

I made the mistake of starting Terraria with a Huge world. It would take hundreds and hundreds of hours to fully explore everywhere. Plus I wander aimlessly while underground, following every branch of tunnel I can find. REALLY need a map.

There are mapping utilities for the game. They output the map as a PNG file you can look at with a graphics program. A map function isn't included with the game since part of the game is exploring and finding out stuff on your own. If you know exactly where all the big deposits are, and where the [SPOILER] dungeon, floating houses, underground jungle, and corruption, etc are, it can take some of the fun out of it for some people.
