Chunky 1.4.3


Release Notes

This release adds support for Minecraft 1.12 blocks.

A new Materials tab has been added to the Render Controls dialog. The Materials tab allows modifying emittance, specular coefficient (reflectiveness), and index of refraction for all block types.

The reflection rendering algorithm has been changed to allow modifying the reflectiveness of differrent block types. As a result, water now renders slightly differently.

Fog is now blended with the sky near the horizon.

The launcher now includes a plugin manager. The plugin manager is accessed via the advanced settings, and makes it easy to install new plugins.

Bed textures were renamed in Minecraft 1.12, and don't work well with Chunky yet. A workaround is to use a pre-1.12 texture pack. Bed rendering will be improved in a future release.
