Minecraft Snapshot 12w24a Update Released Download Link

Hello there,

We have yet another update to Minecraft.

The Minecraft Team state;

This has been a busy week! We’ve moved to our new office, it looks great but is still far from finished. We were still able to squeeze in some work on Minecraft, so here’s the new snapshot:

  • You can now use “/publish” to open your single-player game for LAN friends to join. This is still very much work in progress, so it lacks some necessary settings such as what game mode your friends will get, and if they should be able to use cheats or not. Also, the “/publish” command is temporary, you can’t even access it if you haven’t enabled cheats =)
  • The Ender Chest has been changed to have an inventory per player and not per world. Also, knocking down the chest will break it into 8 obsidian, unless you have Silk Touch.
  • The texture pack folder button now works on Mac
  • A lot of smaller changes and fixes

Get the snapshot here:

If you haven’t downloaded Minecraft you can grab it here: www.minecraft.net/download

Jeb also added on twitter;

jeb_: Changed Ender Chests to be per player, but also made you lose the Eye of Ender if you knock the chest down (so no free carrying around)

Interesting, it is a bit of a shame though as I was liking the fact you could go backpacking :S


How To Install

It seems the snapshots are the same as they used to be to install again;
