The new Minecraft update: 1.6.1

Reporter Excellex here bringing news of the new Minecraft update known as 1.6/1.6.1. The update has added new things, these new things include:


-Horses, Donkeys, and mules

-New Blocks

-A creative Gameplay Edition

-New tools (Used for horses)

The update has some positives and negatives listed below.


Horses, donkeys, and mules have been added along with horse armor, leashes, and name tags.

News blocks have been added: Hardened clay, stained (colored) clay, lapis (new texture), coal blocks, and hay bales.

Carpeting has also been added in every color that wool blocks come in.

In creative mode, swords now don’t destroy blocks. (Good for killing mobs in the way without breaking your builds.)


Swords now have “+X” with X meaning the damage. I dont know about anyone else but I find that really annoying.

You cant choose what horse eggs will spawn, it can spawn either a baby horse, a donkey, a mule, or a normal horse, if i’m correct.

Texture packs are now known as “resource packs” as you can now change more than textures, but adding audio to them. Once more on the list of things in the update they have once more stuck “” although that’s up to a player to decide if either he is real or not. 😛

Thats all for the 1.6/1.6.1 update.
