The first release of the new Fast Travel mod for Minecraft was well received by the fans of this game, who were able to explore more regions within a shorter time, thanks to the faster travel. The mod is now ready to be used by the players in the official servers. If you are among the lucky few that have already downloaded this, you might have noticed many changes within the game. Although there are a lot of improvements, be warned that the game might crash or run slowly while using some of these new features. Some of the most notable ones are explained below.
– You can now select your own flying mount. Prior to the introduction of this feature, the players often needed to choose their mounts from a list and then get their transportation. This was caused by using the map viewer which only detailed the areas that you have to travel to. This caused the game to take longer and sometimes, the players had to restart the game. Using your own flying mount will allow you to travel any place in the game and do not need to worry about where to pick up a map. This is perfect for those who love travelling across different regions, such as raider or shaman.
– There has been an improvement in the texture quality of the game. The old versions were very dull. However, the new textures help to improve the visual appeal of the game. The grass and other assets of the game now have a 3D look.
– The minimum no longer appears at the top-right corner of your screen. This used to be the case in the older versions of the game which is one of the main reasons why many players were not able to find any items or help tips within the minimap. With the update, the minimap can be found in any corner of your screen. Moreover, the timer has been relocated to the lower right corner. This will allow you to view your game more easily.
– There was also an update to the chat channel. The font has been adjusted to make it easier to read. It looks much like the original chat channel. There are still chat bugs but they are now much less annoying compared to before. The chat icon has also been changed to a texture.
Overall, it can be said that this update has helped in improving the general conditions of the game. There are numerous bugs that are still waiting to be attacked but the overall performance of the game are excellent. The most exciting thing is that more updates are planned to follow such as the next boss and the next achievements! It will be a great deal of fun for players to follow these events.
