It's odd. I can't seem to plant sugar cane on sand, grass, dirt, or farm-dirt that's been smacked with a hoe. Even right next to water.

That is odd. Sugarcane, as of now, only grows on un-tilled dirt vertically or horizontally adjacent to a water source.

The only mushrooms are the Brown, and the Red/White mushrooms. Shame, as I'd love to have gigantic mushrooms dotting the landscape.

Mushrooms are a fungus and should be eradicated whenever possible...

He didn't ask about Mushroom biomes. He ask about using bonemeal to grow large mushrooms. Which yes it should in the 1.8 update.

Well... I guess that makes sense to me. I'm weird about my farms... I keep ~small~ compact farms... just enough to keep me fed, and all layered "on top" of each other, under my house... so having all the floors identical to each other, is more important than "breaking the monotony of mud floors". Which is why I don't like Sand in my Sugar Cane room.

And I'm kind of looking forward to Potatoes... but more-so the Carrots. I've already got a Saddle, and a Stick... and Pigs. What could ~possibly~ go wrong?

When this update does hit, I have plans for my entire world.

Pretty much an entire remodel and refurbish. Right now literally everything is cobblestone, which I think looks a bit tacky. Instead, walls will be stone bricks, glass panes instead of blocks, plain stone (or something else that looks nice) as floors, etc.

Got a whole base to re-work. Can't wait.

I know he didn't, but to get the large mushrooms, I'm positive you need to have the mushroom biomes for them to grow there. I've not heard about them being added to 1.8.2, and would need confirmation from someone else. I'll be honest, I'd love to have mega mushrooms, so I can build mushroom city.

@Nitnoid. Mushrooms are only good if they're magic lol.

you can crow them anywhere you can plant a mushroom as long as you have enough room, the mylesium from mushroom biomes just allows them to grow in any condition

Well, growing large mushrooms was part of the 1.8 update on PC last year. So it should work.

Fair enough, if they grow large then I'm gonna be using them. So, any type of mushroom and then bonemeal them?

Sweet. I sincerely hope I can grow mushrooms to a nice hefty size once the update is out. Will give me more ideas for builds!

why does it say release date october 15 and 19?

the game went into cert testing on either the 3rd or the 4th. Usually takes about 10 days from what I have heard. so the update should be out in like 1 week

10 BUSINESS days which is about 14 days. We basically know it will be sometime within the third week of the month and that's about it.

The day it gets out of certification is not the day it's release either so you know.

exactly how was said in the above posts, its an educated guess based on how long it will take to get through the testing process.

and it will be about right, cant think of any reason microsoft would have to stall it

If LIVE takes a trip to screwed up land again... happened with the Trials EVO DLC yesterday.

Was supposed to have shown up yesterday but LIVE was taking an enormous squat or something. They just couldn't get it back to speed (from whatever the hell was happening, probably hacked lool) in time to put out the DLC.

Live was down yesterday? Everything showed up just fine for me, including the Trials EVO DLC.

No it wasn't down, but it was glitchy and acting up a bit. There was a service alert for pretty much the entire day.

Something was going on and the DLC wasn't released right when they said it would. First it was an hour, then it was within the hour, then it was possibly later, then it was not yesterday.

Not sure when the DLC became 100% available for everyone. I'm sure it came out for some sooner than others, just like how a friend of mine was able to buy Minecraft almost an hour before I could.

oh boo hoo, i dont even know why your bringing this up MS can hardly be blamed for a bug in their service after a crash , 99% of the time it runs without problem and they didnt stall the DLC because of the bug the bug caused them to wait for it and they had it up at the earliest possible time

These dates are in no way official. It could come earlier than the days given or even possibly later. I just gave the current most plausible range for when it is likely to be released.

Can't say I noticed any issues when I was online but it was a bit hit and miss a few days ago.
