PROJECT 37: INITIAL FORAYS IN 1.9

   
Project coordinates: n/a
Date completed: 18 May 2016
Minecraft day completed: 5078

Two and a half months after the release of Minecraft 1.9, and with the counter on day 5000, Sinclair's Foundry was updated to the new version. By this time it was on its third minor reshuffle - 1.9.4 - as I'd been warned about remaining bugs in 1.9 and run painfully short of spare time while 1.9.2 was current.

But all good things come to those who wait, and it was finally time to launch headlong into the brave new world of the extended End, self-repairing weapons, and aerial acrobatics. Onwards, and to the skies!

...that is, once I've found an Elytra and at least one Mending book.

This was the first project in the 1.9 cycle - but news was already spreading of what 1.10 would bring in the future. And although it's probably still several months away, the first snapshot for 1.10 was released the same week as this project was finished, in sharp contrast to how much I'd done in 1.8 before the first snapshot for 1.9 surfaced! I've posted a few thoughts under the "Other Worlds" section, alongside a few thoughts on what this future update might bring for Sinclair's Foundry.
