Minecraft Snapshot Week 34 12w34b Download Link 1.4

Hello, me again.. I have been away for some time so I missed a few things.. I have trawled back through it all and lobbed it on here for you.. Enjoy 🙂

Jeb has been teasing about some of the new features the past few weeks.

jeb_: In addition to @Dinnerbone’s love mugs, we’ve added another old decoration suggestion:
jeb_: Invisibility effect: This is how I *want* it to work, but obviously very easy to client-side “override”
jeb_: Some effects of a corner stairs test, Normal shapes behave as expected of course, but I’m not sure about this…

Minecraft Snapshot 12w34a

The recent two weeks Dinnerbone and I (jeb_) have worked a lot on new features, both our own and suggestions from the community. Before you ask, the API that will allow you to do your own features is waiting for a large restructuring of the render engine to be completed. I’ll write more about this in a future blog post.

So while you wait for that, here are the changes in this week’s snapshot:

  • Added item frames
  • Added cobblestone walls (yes, mossy too)
  • Maps now align to a grid, making it easier to create adjacent maps. Maps can also be cloned
  • Stairs now auto-arrange into corners. This is a test and may change based on feedback
  • Mobs can travel through portals
  • Leather clothes can be dyed
  • Removed the “wip block” from the creative menu
  • Added two new crops and associated items
  • F3+P will toggle the auto-pause when the window loses focus (it’s for debugging, mainly)
  • F3+H will toggle detailed item descriptions (also for debugging)
  • Added arrow-sensitive wooden buttons
  • Trapdoors can be placed in top-most position (based on cross-hair aim)

Most of the team will be out next week, so there won’t be a snapshot or Weekly Chunk.

See some of you very soon!

We decided to do a ‘b’ version of this week’s snapshot due to a number of bugs…

  • Fixed nether portal stuff
  • Changed recipes for buttons
  • Minor armor gfx changes
  • Tweaked the “hidden feature” (still not ready for release)

Minecraft Snapshot Week 32 12w32a Download Link 1.4

Hello there,

We had another snapshot this week. 12w32a 🙂 the build up to Minecraft 1.4

Snapshot 12w32a (Week 32)

What is that?

We are currently working on two different tasks: first to patch 1.3.1 to fix the most serious bugs, and secondly on 1.4. The patch will be released as 1.3.2, and will not include any new features. This snapshot (12w32a), however, is a part of our 1.4 development, so it has some new features (confusing, eh?):

  • Villagers will now react positively on new trades, and negatively if you hurt them
  • Villagers will not remove trades, but trading something else may be required to renew the old ones
  • Zombies and Skeletons have new equipment, depending on difficulty
  • There’s a new kind of Zombie, too
  • Added the “Command Block” intended for adventure maps. It’s not craftable and not in the menu, but its id is 137
  • A suprise block! This block is still work in progress, but will get a crafting recipe later on

jeb_: I’ve got some upset tweets about the command block on servers. FYI, the it’s disabled by default, you need to enable it in the property file


jeb_: The command block came with changes to command permission levels, but vanilla still only has the /op level. Also work in progress…


jeb_: To avoid the beacon pyramid crash in the snapshot, always make sure you choose a secondary power when it’s available. Sorry about that

Minecraft 1.3 Pre-Release Download Link

Hello there, This is just a very quick post from me to give you all the links and info you should know about Minecraft 1.3 Pre-Release.

Minecraft 1.3 Pre-Release

It’s finally time for Minecraft 1.3! As the norm is these days, we prepare the community and server providers with a prerelease. The official release date is August 1, so that’s when everybody will get the update in the launcher.

Here’s a brief collection of all the changes made since Minecraft 1.2.5:

  • The game now runs an internal server in single-player mode
  • The single-player server can be shared on LAN, with LAN server detection
  • Made it possible to use client-side commands by enabling cheats (this is defaulted as disabled for old worlds)
  • Added an optional “bonus chest” to get started quicker
  • It’s now possible to trade with villagers. Added emeralds as a currency
  • You gain enchantment orbs from other tasks than just destroying monsters. Max enchantment level has been decreased to 30
  • Servers can automatically suggest and distribute texture packs
  • Added new world map elements (does not need a new map, but they’ll only appear in new areas)
  • Added cocoa beans
  • Added an Ender chest
  • Added tripwire
  • Wooden logs can be placed sideways
  • More detailed change log here: http://www.reddit.com/r/edstonehelper/comments/p6lol/planned_for_the_next_update/

Please note that the minecraft.jar doesn’t need to be extracted or unpacked in any way, you simply replace the minecraft.jar file that is located in the “.minecraft/bin” folder.

Have a great week!

Also Jeb has been getting a bit bored waiting for the final release and has been working to add some of the features mentioned in this video.


Along with Command blocks! w00t :O

jeb_: So this  block will be able to run cmds on redstone signals. With proper commands, many things can be scripted

jeb_: For example, “xp 500 @player” would give the (single-)player 500 enchantment points

jeb_: Hope this explains it better: The block’s command is “give @p 20 7” and gives this:

jeb_: The “at p” keyword only works with a singleplayer, though. Currently there’s no way of knowing which player triggered the redstone


I will be honest… I don’t understand all of this but from what I do understand it looks freaking cool. I guess it could be used a lot in adventure maps to give out certain items? Who knows. I’m sure some people will do some amazing things with it in the future.


For now though I think that is it.. See you soon.
