  • When using an item, the player’s movement speed is decreased
Bug fixes:


  • Monsters could spawn indoors
  • Added fall damage for clients
  • Players could knock each other far away
  • Incorrect bow rendering in 3rd person view

  • Stairs reverted back to their basic blocks when destroyed
  • Charging the bow could destroy certain blocks (flowers, torches), or interact with blocks
  • The game crashed if player was killed while having the bow charged
  • Connecting players could die in creative mode
