Minecraft: Pocket Edition is one of the most popular paid mobile game available in the market right now. It has millions of users across iOS, Android and Windows mobile platforms. Despite its popularity, it still lacks many important features from its desktop counterpart.
In an interview with CNET, Jens Bergensten, lead developer on Minecraft has revealed that Microsoft is planning to bring command blocks to the mobile editions of Minecraft. In future, Microsoft is also hoping to bring the more extensive changes called “mods” to their mobile edition.
Modding is a core element of the Minecraft community,” Bergensten said. “In order to support mods for other platforms, we need to create a system that allows this without modifying the application itself. We are currently researching our options and hope to solve this soon.”
He said that Mojang’s ambition is to reach feature parity between PC version and mobile versions as soon as possible, including command blocks.
About Command Blocks,
The Command Block is a redstone-powered block that was made available in the 1.4 patch for Minecraft. The Command Block will perform server commands when attached to a redstone circuit. This block cannot be crafted and only server administrators are allowed to place them. Command blocks can only be obtained when cheats are activated, and can still only be used in creative mode, preventing survival players in a server from accessing “staff” abilities. Command blocks are invincible outside of creative mode. With Command blocks you can preform commands that players can not preform.
