  • Textures for blocks and items now have individual image files (read more below)
  • Improved death messages

  • Trapped chests now give off the redstone signal through walls
  • Improved hoppers and made them controllable by redstone
  • Updated language files

jeb_: Minecraft doesn’t have limestone/marble, so take a look at a couple of (milky) quartz block tests instead:

Changes 13w02b;

  • Many, many fixes!
  • Notable: The stitcher should now make sure to create textures that have sizes in powers of two (fixes all-white textures)
jeb_: Haha =)

I have no idea if or how you create the above but it looks brilliant!

Minecraft Snapshot 12w25a Update Released Download Link

Another update? Week 25…

I went ahead and copied the info from the Mojang blog for ya.

We’re still focusing on bug fixing so we eventually can release the 1.3 patch. The biggest problem right now is that since the game is hosting a server in the background, the game requires more hardware resources than before. We’re trying to figure out a way to solve that, but here’s a weekly snapshot for now:

  • Added a menu with options for opening your single-player world
  • The multi-player menu now scans for LAN servers (single-player worlds)
  • Villagers will remove trade options after the option has been used 3-15 times
  • Added wooden stairs for the remaining three wood types
  • Corrected Ender Chest storage (no longer whiped on respawning)
  • A lot of smaller changes and fixes

The Yogscast guys pointed out the serious love for steps in the updates recently.

yogscast: The road to 1.3 is being paved with solid stone slabs of awesomeness. At this rate 1.3 will feel more like 2.0. Or…

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

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

Minecraft Snapshot 12w23b Update Released

Hello again,

Minecraft Snapshot 12w23a was released today, quickly followed by 12w23b (because 12w23a broke Minecraft) Read all about it below…

So here’s the new snapshot! This week got interrupted by the Swedish National Day, and we are focusing on finishing up stuff in order to release Minecraft 1.3. Also, we’re moving to our new office! Pics should be on this blog soon. So, in other words, this snapshot doesn’t have as many news as the previous weeks’, but here you go:

  • Enchantment levels are slightly exponential again
  • Added Ender Portal frame to creative inventory
  • A lot of smaller changes and fixes

Get the snapshot here:

UPDATE: There was a bug that caused the game to crash when you “instant-destroyed” blocks with tools. For example when shearing leaves or removing crops with a hoe. This has been fixed, so the links above point to version “12w23b.”

Minecraft Snapshot 12w22a Update Released

Well well, We have another Update. Jeb tweeted it out earlier today.

Snapshot time! Quick overview of changes:

  • Trading with villagers has been updated
  • Enchantment system has been rebalanced
  • A new Redstone-activating block
  • Better Creative inventory
  • Pausing should work in single-player now
  • Some minor terrain changes
  • Added an “adventure” game mode (/gamemode 2), but requires more work
  • A lot of smaller changes and fixes

I recently received an angry email about these snapshots. The complaint was that we just upload these JAR files with absolutely no information on how they are supposed to be used. This is true, and is somewhat of a legacy from how the snapshotting was started: to give previews of possibly broken features. Expert users could satisfy their curiosity, and we received invaluable feedback on work in progress.

The snapshots have gained popularity over time, though, so this information needs to be restated. The snapshots can potentially destroy your save games, even though we try our best not to do that. Only use them if you know what you are doing. To “install” a snapshot, you download the JAR file and replace the one located in your “application data” folder. The easiest way to find that folder is to start the game, select “texture packs” and click on the “open texture pack folder” button. It will locate “.minecraft/texturepacks”, and the JAR file should be placed in “.minecraft/bin”.

To UNINSTALL the snapshot, start the launcher (Minecraft.exe on Windows) and click the “options” button. Then click on “force update” and login as usual. The launcher will then download the official JAR file for you. Note that save games created in the snapshot may not work (and probably doesn’t) in the official version of the game.
