Latest Minecraft Patch Doubles Map Height, Adds Cats

After the large 1.1 update back in January, Mojang is at it again with the 1.2 patch for Minecraft. This patch contains many bug fixes, but also includes some neat features and additions to help the Minecraft experience become even more immersive.

You can now build twice as high as was possible in previous versions of the game. I felt that the vertical scale of Minecraft was already pretty high, but this change should make even more incredible sky-scraping creations. New adventuring improvements are hitting the game as well: Iron golems can now be created to protect villagers in your world, and the jungle biome has been introduced as yet another land type to explore (even complete with Indiana Jones-style ruins). Lastly, cat lovers out there can now grab ocelots from the jungle and train them into domesticated cats!

Here is the full list of additions from the Mojang Blog:

  • New jungle biome
  • Added ocelots
  • Added cats
  • Added iron golems
  • New AI for mobs
  • Tame wolves can have puppies
  • Villagers will have children if there is room in their village
  • New map height limit (256 instead of 128)
  • New items and blocks
  • Doors have been updated so that double-doors work better with redstone
  • Added rare drops for mobs
  • Many other minor tweaks and fixes

You can get the patch today by simply launching your game client. Even after Notch stepped down as project lead back in December, patch support for Minecraft has remained fast and furious. And with a modding API on the way, things only look to get bigger and better from here.
