Minecraft Preview Build; Mod Support Plans

Saying the official release is planned for tomorrow, Mojang now offers a preview version 1.2 of Minecraft, the indie game everyone digs so much. Word is: "Full change log will be posted tomorrow, but itís basically all the snapshots since Minecraft 1.1 packed into one :)." They also announce they have hired the four main developers of the bukkit community-based Minecraft server implementation to develop the official Minecraft API. Word is:

The plan is to build a fresh server API, and then extend it to support client-side modding (in one way or another). We will try to make it easy for bukkit users to convert if they wish to do so, but backwards compatibility is not guaranteed. We will, however, help bukkit to be compatible with 1.2, to avoid having a long gap while you wait for the official Minecraft server to catch up.

Coming along nicely Sepharo, looks very similar to a project I *almost* finished last year. I made an asymmetrical hilltop castle thing, it had 2 major levels, a tower and a rooftop viewing platform with pool. I had a kick ass workshop inside but I didn't finish off all the detailing inside once the walls were all complete. I made a piston drawbridge but it was a bit lame (and I hurt myself making it far more than it did to any mobs). I had a 1 block of mud border at ground level that mobs would congregate on at night... I was considering rigging up pistons to buttons on the rooftop so that people could press buttons to push mobs off the edge to their doom!

So is Blue still running that old Trackmania server? He should convert it to a whitelist Minecraft server!

Edit: Also I've been following the prerelease Minecraft updates, Jeb's a lot better at finishing features than Notch was. His changes are individually small but they are quite sensible and he rolled out a handful every couple of weeks.
