As you may have heard, 1.8 will bring vanilla crafting recipes for mossy stone brick, mossy cobble, and chiselled stone — but why wait? We already had these recipes, I’ve just added Mojang’s version (substantially cheaper, like by a really huge bit).
In addition, there have been rumors of the upcoming unavailability of a very wonderful block, the double slab. Since all this block ever did was try to make people happy, we’ve introduced a recipe to craft the double slab with two slabs, which should have been part of the game and for some reason, hasn’t been. Well hmmph. We can have it now, and for as long as we can before they wrestle it away from us!
