Minecraft Snapshot 12w21b Update Released

Hello there,

As you know there was no snapshot last week because of a Swedish Holiday, Just this missing chunk picture;

Please relax and rest your eyes on this picture of a chunk error instead:

But this week we have one 😀

Time for a new snapshot! One big difference this time is that you don’t need the server jar to play single-player. Also,

  • Villagers will trade items (they are cheap bastards, though!)
  • Added a “currency item”
  • A few minor terrain changes
  • A new useful block/item (requires obsidian)
  • Added a /seed command for showing the map seed
  • Added sandstone stairs
  • A lot of smaller changes and fixes

Get the 12w21b snapshot here:

Some of you may have noticed Snapshot 12w21a had some bugs that needed fixing.. Hence 12w21b being released. Here is some more info;

We rarely do snapshot updates to fix bugs, but since 21a contained an annoying bug that made it hard to play single-player we decided to do one this week. There are still problems, but we’re getting there!

We added a new creative mode inventory screen, please let us know what you think (target @Dinnerbone or @EvilSeph)! We also updated the language files to correct the diamond/emerald mix-up in the language files (diamonds were previously called emerald in the code, which caused a lot of confusion when we added a real emerald item). We had to ban another translator for griefing… it’s astonishing how much work some people put into these things… 🙂

Minecraft Snapshot 12w19a Update Released Download

It’s time for the weekly snapshot. We are continuing on the work to separate the client from the server, and have fixed a bunch of stuff related to that transition. We’ve also,

  • Added cocoa plants to jungles
  • Added a “large biomes” world type
  • Added specific names for the different sandstone and smooth stone blocks

Get the snapshot here:

* The client now comes with both the client-side and the server-side JAR files. The file called “minecraft.jar” should be in your “.minecraft/bin” folder as usual, and the “minecraft_server.jar” file should be in a folder called “.minecraft/server”.

If you havent downloaded Minecraft you can grab it here: www.minecraft.net/download

Also! Cobalt was updated yesterday! Read all about it here: http://www.oxeyegames.com/cobalt-v105-alpha-change-log/

How To Install

As always I love to stick this video in to help you guys with downloading and installing the snapshots. By the look of the comments some people are still having issues;

It seems installing 12w19a (and 12w18a) is different to installing 12w17a and older. You also need to copy the Server folder into your Bin folder.

* The client now comes with both the client-side and the server-side JAR files. The file called “minecraft.jar” should be in your “.minecraft/bin” folder as usual, and the “minecraft_server.jar” file should be in a folder called “.minecraft/server”.

If your having trouble leave a comment and hopefully someone can help you out. (I plan to make a new video showing how to install soon)

Minecraft 1.1 Released

Hello again.. Well we have a ‘proper’ release of Minecraft for you today (well last Thursday)

Jeb_: Was going to upload Minecraft 1.1, but first Bohemian Rhapsody singalong

Jeb tweeted the above along with this link;

http://mojang.com/2012/01/12/minecraft-1-1-update/

Below is a list of some of the added features:

– Bow Enchantments
– Golden Apple recipe
– New language translations.
– Slightly smoothed color transitions between biomes
– Reduced brewing time to 20 seconds
– Added spawn eggs to creative (the colors of the eggs even look like the mobs)
– Added world type options (currently only super-flat and default)
– Removed collision box from ladders
– Sheep eat grass and regain their wool

Plus many bug fixes!

I know a lot of these features are already available in the Snapshots but it will be good to see them in an ‘Official Release’

The ability to spawn mobs is a really nice feature..

Download Minecraft 1.1 here;
