Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition will soon be getting an update to fix issues caused by update 9. Details for the upcoming update 10 were revealed by developer 4J Studios via the company’s Twitter feed.
4J Studios, the developer for the Xbox 360 version of the massively popular title, is currently putting the latest update through internal testing before sending it to Microsoft for certification.
Update 10 includes a fix for a lighting issue that causes unlit areas even when light sources are placed in the area, slowdown caused by explosions and a framerate issue in The End experienced by some players until the Endercrystals are destroyed.
Aside from performace issues, the latest update will fix crashing when placing lots of item frames with maps inside, a collision box issue at the top of ladders, an issue causing animals to take damage randomly or fall through wooden planks, potion bottles from being launched from a dispenser, an issue with fire charges sticking at the edge of the game world, the custom skin animation setting and an issue causing the wrong sound to play when hitting the Enderdragon.
The update will also make the dispenser suck water or lava back into an empty bucket, enable placing pressure plates on a Nether fence, a fix to disallow placing more than the maximum amount of paintings or item frames rather than removing previously placed ones and will stop players from interacting with item frames and paintings when Can Build and Mine is disabled.
In addition, update 10 includes a fix for Xbox Live Silver members getting an error message when loading a save.
There is no scheduled release date for update 10 for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition although it should be ready for download soon.
