Nathan Adams, one of the main game developers at Mojang, has just announced the release of a brand new Minecraft Snapshot.
Adams has recently been working on Minecraft to improve the FPS issues, which have been reported by gamers, since Minecraft 1.8’s release. Speaking about the issue on the social networking website Twitter, Adams confirmed the technical side of the problem: “Technical info: we rendered nearby chunks on main thread, slowing FPS. Now we’ll only do that if it’s “player placed”, saving lots of FPS”.
Mojang has now released Minecraft Snapshot 15w39b which brings in a few bug fixes, as well as a solution to the FPS problems. Here’s the complete list of changes made in 15w39b:
- Found a big cause of FPS loss from 1.8, and hopefully fixed it.
