So, Minecraft 1.2…

…is out. I am both over-whelmed and under-whelmed in equal measure. I’m *so* looking forward to cats for the anti-Creeperness of them (not actually a huge fan of cats IRL, but I can tolerate them in MC if they give Creepers the Fear) and excited by the Jungle biomes (house in a tree, you know it!).

*BUT*

Means the end of YALPS (Yet Another LP Series) – not a terribly bad thing, it’s starting to get a little boring for me and I’m running out of stuff to do. No spoilers, but I really don’t have very much else I want to achieve. The new start is always the exciting part of any LP series (for me).

*SO*

I am looking at changing things up with the next LP series. I’m going unimod – I’ll upgrade to 1.2 once Equivalent Exchange updates and run with just EE. It’ll be tough to start with (no hella-mining with an IC2 Diamond Drill while I build up to the EE Power Toys), but I also believe it’ll give me the most exciting mid/end game experience. Plus, waiting on a single mod to update is a lot easier than waiting on ten or more to update (in addition to the pre-reqs, that is…).

Oh, and it’ll (potentially) be SMP. #minecraftchums, I’m going to be getting my server running 1.2 and EE, so it’ll be a lot easier for you all (and I) to get up and running without “ID Conflict” problems like I had for my current series (and basically stopped me running the server with 1.1).

Finally, it’ll be (rightly) called Season Four; by all rights the current LP should be called Season Three, and this’ll be the fourth lot of Minecraft LP videos I’ve done. So, I’m looking forward to “PMUK Plays Minecraft Season 4”, and I hope you all will too.

P.S. Expect regular world downloads for this new season. It’ll be a whole lot easier for me to release worlds when there’s only the one mod installed. How often sounds good? Every 5 episodes? 😉
