"Minecraft" developer Nathan "Dinnerbone" Adams demonstrated Tuesday one of the new features coming to the PC version of the sandbox game. The "Redstone Update" will allow you to put TNT in minecarts but what happens when the TNT explodes?
"What's the point of properly activating TNT carts if they just blow up your tracks?" Adams asked on Twitter. He included a series of screenshots from the current 1.5 build of "Minecraft" he is working on that shows a TNT cart exploding and digging a deep hole in the ground but leaving the tracks and the blocks beneath them untouched.
"TNT carts that are blown up in a controlled way (activators, not crashes/falling/derailing) won't destroy rails," Adams explained.
Adams also showed off an image with a hopper in a minecart running underneath a series of chests. We're not sure how this hopper cart will work yet though. We'll likely find out when Mojang releases a "Minecraft" snapshot this week.
The 1.5 Redstone Update for "Minecraft" is due out at the end of January or beginning of February. It adds new Redstone blocks, Comparator blocks and Daylight Detector blocks among others along with a new way to handle textures and even animated textures.
