Change log

Fixed:
Chat history and much better chat editing
A few new decoration blocks
“Back” and “Quit” buttons to OutOfMemoryScreen

Added a “minimal” debug menu for testing with. Shift+F3 to hide the graphs.
Made placing half blocks on existing half blocks (to make a full block) easier

Adventures in Stronghold

First interesting place I found was the jail.  There are maybe 4-5 of these that I could find.

 

After about an hour I found a library

 

This is what happens when you break blocks in there:

 

I spent maybe 3 hours in there and I still can’t find the ender portal.
