The Nether, Breeding, Adventures And More. Minecraft Earth Q&A 2 Summary

The second Minecraft Earth Q&A has just finished over on the official Minecraft Earth discord. As per usual, below is a summary of the most revealing/interesting questions and answers from the event.

Will breeding be coming?

Yes, breeding is coming, keep your eyes peeled.

Will Adventures be common and can we collect items on Adventures?

Adventures will be less common than tappables, and you will be able to collect items from them! Also, we are working on our new Adventure feature which lets you explore new experiences underground. Here you will find lots of challenges, hostile mobs and rewards! You never know what you will find!

Will Minecraft Earth be at Minecon Live?

Tune in to find out more ^_^

Special events in the future?

Yes!! They’ll be tied into real world days/events and/or some special game events

How will the Nether and End work in MCE?

The End and The Nether will be coming to MCE in a future update!

Holiday Exclusive mobs?

Yes! Some very pretty and special mob/mob variants for holidays!!

Any reasons why you don’t plan to allow us to upload our own skins to MCE? Using our own personal skins make us feel like our character is personalized

As with anything that has to do with personalization and creativity, there are people who abuse it and like to do inappropriate things. We will not allow this because the most important thing at the end of the day is keeping our players safe.

Roughly how will crafting work?

Recipes will be the same but some of the functions will be a bit different. You’ll be able to craft tools. These tools can be used in adventures to mine/collect/farm resources and battle hostile mobs.

Will there be more different looking tappables in the future?

Yes, we are adding Tappable types as the game evolves. You may see some new trees soon

Will there an option to make our player visible by other players on maps, especially friends?

We have been considering this, but have to take player safety and privacy laws and policies into account. We have no announcements on this feature for now.

Is there any way some relief could be provided to passenger-commuters? It feels like I’m being punished for riding the bus to work with the constant fast-travel warnings.

We will have more features and functions later in the dev process that won’t be affected by speed limits but for right now we have the cap in place for good reason

Will daily rewards be a feature?

We are looking at a lot of new features at the moment including what daily rewards would mean for MCE. We want to make sure they are meaningful and fun!

Will battery consumption be improved?

We are just at the beginning of our performance journey! We will continue to improve it as we make new updates. There are, of course, limits to what we can do, as AR enables every sensor in the device at the same time.

Is villager trading available in MCE?

This is a great question and it’s something we’re working through!

Can we get custom potions? like a potion of long reach, to reach farther in the overworld, or a potion of the collector to automatically collect nearby resources?

We are looking at what potions will be in Minecraft Earth to make the most sense. Stay tuned for more info!

Will MCE have a day and night cycle?

Current MCE and the world map is only played in daylight. We are thinking of how the day-night cycle would work in MCE and what that would mean for AR gameplay for all the different experiences.

That’s everything! To view the full list of answers, join the discord server and view the ‘Dev Answers’ channel.
