  • Score
  • The swing speed of the player's arm is now slowed down to one swing per second when held, from 4.
    • This is a hard limit. The arm will no longer swing faster if the player clicks faster.
  • The water texture side now has a pink bar on top, while lava has a bit of the water texture on top (best seen when blowing up TNT near water or lava).


  • Killing a spider during rain no longer crashes the game.[verify]
