What’s new in Minecraft PE 1.4.0?
The biggest addition in Minecraft PE 1.4.0 is the inclusion of beds! Beds can be used to set your spawn point, so you’ll always respawn at the same spot even if you die. Beds can also skip the night, so you can keep exploring during the day even if it’s nighttime in the game.
In addition to beds, Minecraft PE 1.4.0 also includes a new map item that allows you to see the terrain around you without exploring it yourself. The map item can be zoomed in and out and panned around so you can better look at your surroundings.
Finally, Minecraft PE 1.4.0 includes a number of other small changes and improvements, such as the ability to share your coordinates with other players, new sound effects for beds and doors, and various bug fixes.
Minecraft PE 1.4.0 fixes:
- Fixed the ‘Pick Block’ feature not working on some blocks
- Fixed a crash that could occur when using ‘/tickingarea create’
- Fixed several crashes that could occur during gameplay
- Fixed a crash that could occur when loading certain resource packs
- Improved performance when loading chunks
