v0.14.0, the first release of the Overworld Update, is a major update to Minecraft: Pocket Edition that was released on February 18, 2016. It added more redstone-related blocks, witch huts, maps, slime blocks, and a redesign of some menu interfaces. The update was the first to receive a name in the history of Pocket Edition.



  • Based on the idea of the capacitor mentioned at Minecon 2012.
  • The crafting recipe is 3 On Redstone Torch (texture) JE1 BE1 redstone torches, 1 Nether Quartz JE1 BE1 nether quartz and 3 Stone JE2 BE1 stone.
  • It is the same as a repeater, but with 2 inputs.
    • If input A is stronger or equal to input B, it either repeats the signal or outputs the difference between A and B, so this can be used as an easier way make redstone contraptions like piston doors.
      • Output is toggleable by right-clicking.
    • If input A is weaker than input B, then there is no output.
  • All containers output a redstone signal when a redstone comparator is placed against it directly. The strength of it depends on how full the container is and what disc number is used in a jukebox.
    • This works with trapped chests as well, meaning it can provide two redstone signals with different causes at the same time.
  • Crafted from cobblestone, a bow and redstone.
  • Version exclusive: Custom name does not appear in GUI.
  • The crafting recipe is 7 Cobblestone JE3 BE2 cobblestone and 1 Redstone Dust JE1 BE1 redstone.
  • Places items in containers in front of them, if there is no container it will dispense the item without using it.
  • A dispenser "shoots" items at the player, while a dropper "throws" items at the player.[2]
  • Can face all 6 directions, with a different texture when facing up or down.
  • Needs redstone signal to drop items.
  • Fires once when the input becomes powered.
  • Redstone signal emitted when a redstone comparator is placed against it directly - signal length depends on its fullness.
  • Version exclusive: Custom name does not appear in GUI.
  • Crafted from stone and redstone.

Slime blocks
  • Crafting recipe: 9 slime balls.
    • Can be crafted back into 9 slime balls.
  • Players and mobs that land on their top side bounce, like on a trampoline.
    • This negates all fall damage.
      • Holding ⇧ Shift negates the rebound, and does not negate the fall damage.
    • Bounce rebound velocity is scaled by impact velocity.
      • Height can reach up to 60% of initial height, which implies a great restitution coefficient.
    • Does not affect falling item entities.
  • Walking on it is slower than walking on soul sand and close to one's speed while sneaking.
  • The placing/breaking sounds use the hurt sounds of slimes.
  • Can be mined with only one click, without any tools in survival.
  • Slime blocks push and pull each other, along with adjacent blocks, when at least one of them is moved by a sticky piston.
    • Normal pistons have the same effect, except that they fail to pull even a single slime block.
    • Coded by KaboPC and Panda4994.[3][4] Follow all the existing rules that pistons followed:
      • A chain of slime blocks and its adjacent blocks connected to a piston, in any arrangement, can be moved as long as the following conditions are met:
        • The piston is not moving more than twelve blocks at a time.
        • Non-movable blocks are not obstructing the path.
        • Not a single slime block in the chain is attached to the piston itself.
    • Allows for moveable contraptions.
  • Extending a piston with a slime block attached propels adjacent entities (mobs, players, items, launched arrows, etc.) in the appropriate direction.[5]


  • Lets the player scope out different biomes.
  • Version exclusive: Crafted using nine paper.
  • Version exclusive: Compass must be added through an anvil in order to show the player's position.
  • Version exclusive: Can be cloned using the anvil, instead of the crafting table.
