    Coming Soon

    I have personally been working on implementing pathfinding for Entity AI. After several months of on-and-off work on this issue, I have found an efficient solution to implement it, and I am aiming to have it all functional for the next release (2017.8).

    We are continuously updating our Beta site with new features, and we are looking forward to your feedback. We are planning to have a complete ‘Download Center’ for Glowstone on there in the near future!
