Recommended Posts

Good news! The first pre-release of the legendary 2.0 Anniversary Update is here for testing on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms! This update is in fact so grand that it has been split into two phases that will be revealed over the next few months as pre-releases:

Phase 1 (May 30th): Multi-platform support, performance improvements, new world importer and multi-monitor support by @david
Phase 2 (Late August(?)): New user interface, logo, rendering and animation capabilities by @Nimi, also includes all features in Phase 1

Since these builds will contain many features and be built on an entirely new C++ engine, expect bugs to appear! As usual, please report them in the Issues and Bugs subforum with as much information as possible included in your topic and project files if possible.
Now, without further delays...

      • Shift: Ignore selection
    • Increased performance and stability improvements
    • Shortcut button in toolbar
    • After importing from a world, clicking the “Reload” option under “Resources” will update the block changes from the world (if still present on the disk)
  • Multi-monitor support
    • Drag the timeline or secondary view out of the window to detach as a new window
    • Alternatively, click the new “Pop out”/”Reset” buttons

  • Overall software performance improved by x3-5
  • Particle performance improved by roughly x10
  • Audio loading is now instant
  • Scenery/.schematic importing up to x10 times faster, depending on CPU cores
  • Optimized memory usage for 3D meshes, meaning bigger scenery can be imported
  • Generated scenery 3D models are cached in the project folder, allowing instant loading (will generate in the background, may take a minute to appear)
  • Project/resource loading stability improvements
  • Program now runs in x64 mode using C++


  • “Sunlight Strength” is now 100% by default (this setting may be removed in the future)
  • Removed “Spawn near work camera” option (replaced by the drag-n-drop mode which achieves the same thing)
  • New error message popup with direct links to log file and Mine-imator forums
  • Log file moved to application folder
