Ride On a Cloud in Minecraft's Adventure Update

image

A spoiler screenshot for the Minecraft Adventure Update reveals a form of flight.

Upcoming Minecraft version 1.7 is called the Adventure Update, supposedly adding a large amount of content that will give players more to do than hack up chickens and build. Creator Markus "Notch" Persson has decided to keep most of the update secret, but tweeted an interesting image that features a floating character.

The image shows a player in the air apparently walking on some sort of cloud. The cloud has a trail behind it leading me to believe that it's some form of air travel.

I brightened the image up a little bit, but the original can be found here. Persson said nothing along with his tweet of the image other than that it was a spoiler screenshot.

Theories put the cloud as a transport between the regular world and the sky dimension, something that randomly occurs during a dream, or an object that players can build themselves. Only Mojang knows for sure.

Persson previously revealed underground ravines as another new inclusion in the Adventure Update. One thing's for sure, Minecraft 1.7 will likely be the most interesting patch yet.

Mining clouds maybe?

I'm more psyched for underground ravines personally! I'm looking forward to discovering ancient ruins!

I am disappointed that the cloud is not yellow.

Now I gotta find those Dragon Balls! Got to find them all! Go on a quest around the world, yeaaaah!

Yay! Now I can build stuff in the clouds as well as on the ground! This is really looking like a big update and I can't wait to see it come to fruition.

Why must we wait?
When can it be ours?!

Sweet. Didn't take long for the DBZ references though, did it? I'm betting on sky transport. If people can fly around at will, game saves will balloon in size.

DeadlyYellow:

Not disappointed, nut I was definitely thinking of the xact same thing.

Isn't this more about world curvature?

DeadlyYellow:

So am I...

Well, there are always texture packs...

I know this is blasphemy, but I haven't tried Minecraft. It looks interesting, but I'm not certain it's the game for me.

I wonder how you're supposed to get fly on the clouds? What kind of things will you have to make or find?

SuperMse:

Just be wary of the Red Ribbon Army.

This update looks like it will be more than enough to motivate me for a new enormous project!
Sky cities, underground towns...

Or maybe its a dev tool?

I hope you CAN fly on it, but It's extremely rare to find / stupid hard to make. I don't want my railway to be insignificant. D=

Jambolaty:

good eye :D I overlooked that completely :D

Then again, look at the moon. It could just be the screenshot is distorted.

I find it hilarious that half of the comments are DBZ references. A shame they beat me to it, or I would have made the same very obvious joke.

Getting to the sky dimension in a dream would actually be really cool. This makes bed doubly useful, and only adds to the atmosphere of the game.

These patches seem to have less and less content in them each time and still keep their ridiculously long development time.

At least people looking forward to console Minecraft can rest assured that all of Mojang's work is being directed at that version considering Minecraft itself is getting virtually no support.

Well, I really hope this comes soon. Maybe this is a way to get to that sky land thing notch told us about.

I shall mod it right away to make it yellow. It must be done no matter what.

1.7 is the biggest update minecraft ever had. It includes adventure mode which is essentialy zelda with a purose etc. You press switches don't get to destroy blocks use pistons to move blocks...
The old patches aka secret friday updates from a few years ago often only included one item and at one time being able to use said item as the secobd patch.

You know what would be cool?

A sort of "dreamworld" dimension.

What it looks like varies depending on what befalls the player.

Wow, I love how there hasnt been a single article anywhere about how notch has already confirmed horses in 1.7. Am I the only one who knows?

Except Mojang isn't even working on the 360 version. That's 4J Studios' job.

And, like GiantRedButton pointed out, 1.7 is slated to be the most content-filled update yet. (That said, it seems the pistons will get an earlier release in their own patch, which will most likely be version 1.6.7.)

*sigh* and here I was, finally getting off my addiction of Minecraft and out comes this.

Thanks, Notch.

Thanks.

(.... I can't tell whether I'm being sarcastic or not with that comment XD)

I still prefer the airship if this is air transport. Feels more 'olde world' like some sort of British Empire explorer. With one of those hats. Y'know, THOSE hats. http://www.polyvore.com/cgi/img-thing?.out=jpg&size=l&tid=2298007

Edit: The airship mod, not that Notch has implemented one.

So, the sticky pistons that are also gonna be included... can sticky pistons push sticky pistons? I want an elevator since water ladders are broken now...

Well im sure people will like it when they dont fall of thier projects all the time, and its a safe way to avoidd creepers.

I knew it, half the stories in the world all come back to the monkey king...

I hope this ends with my minecraft character being able to do the Kamehameha Wave.

Yeah, they can. And they might add them in a 1.6.7, so we get them sooner :D

Good to see that there are other people that thought of Dragon Ball when they read this.

What's with the moon? Actually, what's with that entire skybox? I can see the seams. Is it just because we're so high up, and can see the corner of the visible world? I never get that feeling.

So I'm the only one who thought of the flight cloud from Champions Online when I saw this?

What?! Minecraft's world can't be round, guys unless Notch intends to make worlds of finite sizes, that is...

First thing I thought of, from my favourite episode "Outrageous Coincidences", wherein Monkey, Sandy, and Tripitaka think they have eaten Pigsy and Pigsy thinks they have frozen to death. As a side note this episode is also the one where Tripitaka gets drunk and seduces girls convinced he is possesed by the ghost of Pigsy.

You kids and your dragonball, you really are missing out.
