This update had terrain features such as Chasms and overhangs (or "natural caves"), and Dirt surface at ground level, all of which are not seen in later updates. Most features in Lunacraft were added in this update.
This update got very good reviews, but was criticized for its on-screen joystick controls. The developers responded to this by changing the controls in Update 1.7.0.
