Mojang has released Minecraft snapshot 13w09b, which fixes a whole lotta bugs. A pre-release is slated for either today or March 1. There are quite a few fixes detailed through the official site, one of which is potatoes not being affected by the Fortune enchantment. Those pesky spuds. Also fixed is a game crash which occurs when a saddled pig you ride dies or when changing between rideable entities. I’ve saddled many an animal in my life, oddest one was an ostrich, but never a pig. I may have to add that to my bucket list, or just try it in Minecraft. Seems the safer bet. Hit up the link for more.
