As far as I know, he's planning release on Aug. 1, and pre-releases (like before 1.8 and 1.9/1.0) a week before. I think...

Yeah- https://twitter.com/jeb_/status/219828495918960641

But he says that's the plan. Not that it's set in stone. But I'm still going to hope.

Hm, you know, I do have one problem with 1.3 when it does come out. Optifine won't be updated right away. I'm hoping the snapshots will make it easier for modders to update, but it still takes time. That will make playing the game very, very painful for me. Really, something like Optifine should just be integrated into the game. Without even changing anything, Optifine makes the game run smoother. I can have clouds on and biome colored side grass and normal view distance, oh my! Just not fancy trees, but that's okay.

So, the first week or two of 1.3, I'll most likely avoid snow and jungle biomes and stay inside when it rains, lol. I might take the time when 1.3 first arrives to go in search of villagers.

Hey, I'm curious. What do you guys plan to do first in your AMCWAS worlds when 1.3 comes out? Go exploring? Test out the new enchantment system? Play with the new blocks?

Well, as long as he sticks to the plan, everything shall work out smoothly. I hope. Haha.

Yeah, playing without OptiFine is going to be crazy. One of the few mods that should be implemented in the game, I agree! 

Shoot, right now I have to be wary of going near jungles or any weather stuff. Haha. Maybe 1.3 will be a good update for OptiFine. I've read some places that for 1.2.5, OptiFine works really, really well for Normal and Far, but Tiny and Short doesn't work as well as the past updates. I kinda have to agree.

When 1.3 comes out, I'm probably going to head straight to that village and test out the trading system. Haha. Then head back and try the new enchantment/level stuff. Should be quite interesting, indeed.

Interesting... Now singleplayer is 'inside' multiplayer... I have no clue what this means.

Oh, wow, didn't know about signs and buckets being stackable. That's a great saver on inventory and storage space!

Actually, multiplayer is inside single player. Haha. Just another way of saying you can invite people to your SP world. =)

And I know! I've been wanting signs and buckets to stackable forever. 

Anyone else excited about the boats being not horrible? Haha.

Oh my goodness! The Minecraft forums say that when signs are crafted now, they give you 3 signs! This. Is. Epic.

Yessss, three signs for the price of one!

I rarely used boats in the past because they were so annoying to deal with, so I'm excited to actually have a use for them now. I wonder if boats breaking lily pads will make it much easier to harvest them. If so, boats will be my new best friend!

I think I'm going to make some shirts with Jeb's face on them. 

Not only are signs stackable, but we're getting three now??? Crazy!!

Yeahhhh, you might not have finished the sentence, but it did stop me from wanting a shirt with Jeb's face on it. Hahaha.

Lol I was just being silly. And look at how cute! I first saw him when I watched coverage for Minecon. He's like a ten year old with a man beard, it's adorable.

:3 *tugs beard*

Anywaaays. Hahaha. Horses? Would you guys be for this idea or against it? I'd definitely be for it. Once again, looking back at Luclin's Hardcore LP, he had horses in a mod, and they looked awesome.

Horses would fit in perfectly fine in vanilla minecraft, in my opinion. Imagine coming across a plains biome and seeing a herd of wild horses running through the grass...and trying to tame one of them with wheat or apples. We already have saddles and can sort of ride pigs, so why not horses?

Oooh, yeah, tamable only with apples would be good since apples are at least somewhat rare compared to wheat. Make it a little more challenging. It would be another reason to go to the plains biomes, too, considering all there is now is NPC villages. Haha.

Yeah, plains biomes are pretty blah. Not much there you can't get anywhere else.

Except all the seeds and flowers you'll ever need. Haha.

Me and my broskis are super excited about the new LAN connection stuff! Hopefully it won't be too laggy. You guys excited too?? =D

I am excited about the LAN. Going to try to convert my brother to Minecraft and I think playing multiplayer would be the best way to go about it. :D

Hopefully the lag will be better for the release. Tried out the newest snapshot and wow, the lag is still pretty awful. Mobs will completely ignore you at times, especially zombies if they have wooden doors nearby or better yet, villagers to terrorize.

Ahh! I get it. They just dislike the outsiders cause they won't carry their load. They're fair, but peaceful, I suppose? But anyways, yes, please give the Pioneers a different title. Haha. ^_^

And weapons, huzzah!

I hope I can do some LAN stuff, and that my internet will stand up to it. Now just to find someone who will play with me...

I have the same problem as Wartower. :( Hence the reason why I'm going to try to convert my brother.

Thanks doggyluvuh! I need all the luck I can get. :P

Wonder if we'll still get a snapshot this week? Or if they'll just put that off and just give us a release candidate just before the official update.

I dunno. *Waving hands in air. From what I understood on Twitter, Jeb's on a little vaca. Don't know if that could have any effect on a snapshot. I don't typically follow snapshots, anyhow, so maybe I'm not the best person to answer that. Hahaha.
