Minecraft Snapshot Week 42 12w42a/b Download Link

Well Hello,

We have another Snapshot for you.

Minecraft Snapshot 12w42a;

Releasing an early snapshot this week because we need to crunch out the pre-release as soon as possible. This snapshot has the following changes:

  • Anvil block has been tweaked (it’s cheaper to create, minor visual changes, and you can repair tools using wood/ingots/diamonds)
  • Bats no longer trample crops or trigger pressure plates
  • Redstone repeaters can be “locked” (fixed output) by having a powered repeater connected to its left or right side
  • Added an option to hide a server’s IP address
  • Updated language files
  • More bugfixes & tweaks!

Minecraft Snapshot 12w42b (Preprerelease!);

Here’s the next snapshot, 12w42b! We are pushing these very rapidly now because we need to get ready for the 1.4 pre-release (which needs to be out before the official release on October 24). Since yesterday’s snapshot we’ve done…

  • Falling sand now properly “pops” when falling on non-solid blocks (such as torches)
  • The redstone repeater lock mechanism is now slightly more stable / predictable. It’s still not 100% as we want it, but fixing it completely will require bigger changes that we’ve planned for Minecraft 1.5.
  • Fixed tooltip width for renamed items
  • Added a number of sound events, but the sound effects are not added yet
  • Server ping will now tell if the server and client have mismatching protocol versions
  • Updated translation files

Jeb posted a video showing some of the ‘Red-Stone Lock’ features

jeb_: After 1.4 we’re going to fix a bunch of redstone-related stuff that will break builds, so that’s why we’re only using the “safe” version now

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.

Minecraft Snapshot 12w40b;

12w40b was released on Friday fixing some minor issues.

UPDATE: The links above have been updated to version 12w40b. In this extra snapshot:

  • Fixed the glitchy block popping bug
  • Fixed beacon rendering
  • Fixed a crash related to map items in strongholds

Minecraft Snapshot Week 38 12w38b Download Link

Hello there,

Did you miss me? Well my wife had our second child.. A lovely little Girl called Florence Olivia… We have been slightly busy with her recently.. But now I am back… Please read on for Snapshot info 🙂

Minecraft Snapshot 12w38a;

Still working towards the Pretty Scary Update. We’re reaching the end of the number of features we want, and will from now on start focusing on polishing up a 1.4 release. Here’s the 12w38a changelog:

  • Updated and added new sounds by C418
  • Added a neutral mob
  • Added a hostile mob (doesn’t spawn yet)
  • Command block target parameters have been upgraded, check here for details: https://gist.github.com/3736487
  • Beacon artwork has changed
  • Wood trunk blocks are now rotated differently. Instead of using the player’s position, it will rotate based on the face it is placed upon. This is mainly a test, so feedback is welcomed, but for me personally this way is a bit easier.

View the 12w38a snapshot on the Mojang Blog

This snapshot was then super-seeded by 12w38b.

Minecraft Snapshot 12w38b;

Because the ‘say’ command didn’t work we decided to do a 12w38b snapshot:

  • /say command works again
  • Updated sound engine and added minecart sound effects
  • Various other sound effect changes
  • A few tweaks to the witch mob

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)

Download the snapshot here:

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!

Read all about the snapshot on the Mojang Blog – There is also a lot of PAX info.

Minecraft Snapshot 12w34b

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

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