Bedrock Edition players, this is the day that many of you have been waiting for: all the special crafting tables and inventories are now supported! This includes the addition of:
- Smithing table
- Cartography table
Furthermore, enchantment tables now use the interface that you expect, and lecterns will display their books. This was one of the last major limitations to our Bedrock support, bringing us ever closer to have all players on the same level, no matter how they join!
With these new additions, the convenience Bedrock traders at Moosemart will be removed. The Super Loom at Central will remain accessible as it offers additional features beyond that.
I hope you enjoy these additions!

Exodio is inviting everyone to a Block Party, hosted within the Residential District in Central! This will take place this Saturday at the beginning of Events Nights, 9pm Eastern time.
The fun will begin at Exodio's place then spread out over the neighborhood. If you live nearby, you're encouraged to set up some display or attraction of your own. Even if you don't, come together and join the other players for the festivities!
Minecraft: Bedrock Edition got a new version today in 1.16.210, containing parity improvements, a smoother user interface and bug fixes. We have updated the servers to accept this new version, which is also compatible with the older 1.16 releases. Let your game update when its ready, and carry on with your mining adventures!
A set of improvements that I've been developing for several weeks to increase the performance of the servers is now ready and live!
With this new model, the game servers that don't have any active players will automatically turn themselves off after a while. They are set to come back online on their own when you want to access them; in that case, you will see a notification telling you that the world you have selected is currently being prepared. Once ready, you will be moved over.
If the server you were last playing on isn't loaded on your next visit, you will land in the lobby. In that case, go to re-enter the world and you will be allowed back inside after a short load time. If you are moving frequently between worlds, don't worry: there is a delay between the last player leaving and a world shutting down, so you won't be facing constant loading screens.
In rare instances, if the players are spread out over many worlds, you might get an error about a high server load. In that case, you won't be able to enter the location where you wanted to go until more resources free up; in that case, you are invited to wait it out by going somewhere with active players. I don't expect this to happen often, but it's possible.
This should greatly improve the game speed and stability compared to what we experienced in the last month or so. Most servers now have more memory available, as those that are unused at any moment completely clear the room for others.
It's time for a new set of challenges and targets as we enter the month of March!
Do you like to expect the unexpected? Then go try your hand at figuring out the madness that Kenorland offers this month! In this special world, everything you can encounter is randomized, including but not limited to mined blocks, mob drops, crafting recipes, and more!
Anyone who tries the challenge and lasts more than a minute will earn 5 Merit Points.
Guilds: Rodinia opens!
If you missed it, last month saw the opening of the Guilds of the Creeper's Lab. Assuming that you completed the targets in February, then do the new ones that became available today, you can level up and gain access to the Rodinia guildhall! You will find it a short distance south from spawn, next to Rodinia Central Station.
To access the Rodinia challenges, you first need to purchase the certificate of the selected guild in Laurasia, then bring it to the reception desk in Rodinia. Once you've unlocked your access, you can safely store away your certificate.
The Hunter's Lodge takes a green shade this month with Evil Leprechauns, while a familiar friend from Requiem is in the vicinity. All Horsemen Quests have also been cycled; go to the Creeper Citadel to view the full list in one convenient location!
As a reminder, the science areas, which include everything related to the Horsemen and more, get regular updates and tuning. You can track these improvements by checking the changelog on the forums; consider subscribing to the topic to get notified about any updates!
