Minecraft 1.10 update adds new polar and desert content

Minecraft has been updated to version 1.10. Simply load up the launcher to grab it.

This latest patch has a ton of fixes, apparently, but the main highlights are additions to the polar and desert biomes.

For advanced builders, the most interesting change is the addition of a Structure Block. Here’s Mojang’s description:

“This block allows map makers to store templates of structures and place them dynamically with the help of Redstone trickery. Since it’s a technical block, you will not find it in the game menus, and is restricted to players who are admins in creative mode.”

Mojang shared the following patch notes:

  • Many bug fixes
  • Added Polar Bear
  • Added Husk and Stray
  • An auto-jump option
  • Improvements to some commands
  • Structure blocks for custom maps
  • Underground fossils made from bone blocks
  • Added Magma Block
  • Added Nether Wart Block and Red Nether Bricks
  • Some huge mushrooms can be even larger
  • A rare chance to find lonely trees in plains
  • Find abandoned mineshafts filled with gold in mesa biomes
  • Villages generate better paths between the buildings
  • More variations of villages, based on the biomes they are built in
  • Endermen have been spotted in the Nether
  • Removed Herobrine

As usual this patch is for the mothership Mac and PC build only; the console, mobile and Windows 10 builds run on their own schedule.
