    fixing the dispenser glitch was great now you wont have idiots duplicating dimonds .

  • Paul

    The Dispenser Glitch was a great idea to patch up because i love to work for what i need instead of having small kids pop up in games and make copies of my stuff then grab the item for them selves. or ruin what you have created. i love this patch now i can fully experience the hard work of a job well done to a project with out kids cheating for me or teaching me useless things when they are failures in life for taking the easy way out. keep those patches coming MineCraft fixers you are doing a great job thank you so much

  • Another update is coming in a few weeks… the 1.7.xx bringing with it some DLC skins too…

  • i hope they add creative and more items (redstone items) 😀
