When there is just one potato left in all the world and that potato is missing, it is your job to find that potato. You must also save a piglet from being sent to the prison slaughter yards, and generally adventure the heck of the way out of your unfortunate prison in order to begin a journey that will be as epic as it will be described in blocks. Finding the potato will not be simple. It will be dangerous. It will involve lava. It will involve falling from great heights. It will involve reaching deep inside yourself and finding the strength and the will and the courage to seek down that starchy tuber and return it to its rightful home. There’s only one question left to ask yourself. Can you count to potato?

Want to play treasure hunt in minecraft? Visit the Bravo Network minecraft server (presumably not related to the actual Bravo Network on account of that would make less sense than a porcupine stuck in a cuckoo’s nest. The plugin functions as such: a player begins the treasure hunt by finding a chest. They are then given the co-ordinates of the next chest and when they find that they must then find the next chest and the next chest, so on and so on until they find a final chest full of wonderful goodies, including randomly generated unique items, which are all the more unique for having been generated without any form of coherent sense in mind. The generated items are wonderful though, they include things like swords which cause ligtening bolts to come crashing down from on high, pickaxes which allow players to teleport, and armor that is impervious to any blade. Shiny!
Minecraft 1.6 requires the NEW minecraft launcher. It will not be available from your existing minecraft client. This means you need to go and download the new launcher, which is available directly from the official Mojang site or the Minecraft.net site.

How To Install Minecraft 1.6
Once you have downloaded the launcher, open it in the normal way. You will see this screen:
You can play minecraft as normal from this screen. You’ll also notice at the top right hand of the new launcher there is the ability to select which version of minecraft you would like to play. It is said that in the future, players will be able to easily switch between current and earlier minecraft releases, making it much easier to work with various multiplayer servers and modpacks which may or may not have updated to newer versions of minecraft.
Minecraft 1.6 will be released on the 1st of July, so it is a good time to get familiar with some of the little changes being made to the game. Yes, there are horses. But horses won’t be the most pressing concern when spawning in a new survival world (especially as you’ll have to find a dungeon saddle before you can ride one anyway).
The new food and hunger system is of much more interest, I believe. In the past, players could take damage to their health, but heal easily if they had a full hunger bar. Well, all that is changing.
Healing now consumes food in minecraft.
If you take damage, your food bar will go down as you heal. This means that you will get hungrier a lot quicker, and it also means that you will heal more slowly because your food bar will drop as you heal. If you are taking ongoing damage, it is even possible that you could actually starve before your health bar goes.
What does this mean?
Food Tips For Minecraft 1.6
Carry plenty of quickly consumable, high calorie food when out. This change to the hunger mechanic and food bar means that you’ll need to eat fairly often. Some players will no doubt enjoy this, finding it to be more realistic.
You may also need to be much more careful about your use of the sprint button. Remember, sprinting depletes the food bar quite quickly, and once the food bar drops below the regeneration threshold, you won’t heal very well or at all if you take damage.
Here are texture packs that will transform your villagers from plain old big nosed Testificates to a range of fascinating fellows, including more ‘normal’ villagers who look like Steve, Pirate Villagers, Cow Villagers, Zombie Villagers (to be confused with actual zombie villagers) and even Zelda villagers!
