Minecraft Snapshot Week 40 12w40a/b Download

Hello again,

DoneyKebab here.. Bringing you another Minecraft Snapshot update..

Minecraft Snapshot 12w40a;

On Thursday Mojang released 12w40a;

We’re now fully into the “prepare for release” mode, so we’ve almost only worked on bug fixing and performance. We’ve decided to aim for October 24 for the full Pretty Scary Update. Here’s this week’s changelog:

  • Minor terrain additions for the witch
  • Flatworld configuration now allows you to generate trees, strongholds etc
  • A number of new NBT tags for items (intended for custom map makers)
  • The pick block action now works on items
  • Pressing the 1-9 hotkeys while hovering over an item will put that item into the inventory bar
  • The left-click action will no longer open doors, pull levers, push buttons or open trapdoors. Use the right mouse button!
  • Firespread has been slightly nerfed again to prevent infinitely spreading fires
  • More bugfixes & tweaks!

This was found to have a few bugs that needed fixing, no game-breakers though.
