At last sunday, the Minecon ended.
From the Minecon, manyinformations about the next update, the "redstone update"/"AntiModUpdate" came. Much of the features will force lots of changes in IC2, too.
But I will start with the features:
-Many changes, maybe even a rework, of redstone. From example, the strength of the signal will be a factor for things[...].
A new block, that makes an pulse when a rs-signal with a cinfigurable strength gets in.
Kind of transport block(Allocator, translocator)
Will move things from container to container and maybe from ground to container.
Weigth pressure plate(Also as rail)
Will depend on what is going over it when giving an signal.
-New Nether Ore
Will be required for crafting the new RS-Devices.
There will be several features for killing railcraft. Trains, item from cart to chest things and more.
More FFP's, less light bugs and so on.
Also, there are lots of new Maybe Features, like the modding api(which was first maybed in the beta 1.8!!)
No Moding Api[...]
First paper then tool-entchantings
New PvP system
The update might come january 2013
