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

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 1.2 Officially Released (1.2.3)

Hello,  How are you all? I’m ok thanks.. Been a busy week this one.

Well… What are we here for again? Ah yes.. Minecraft 1.2!

Jeb tweeted about the release of 1.2 earlier this week.

jeb_: The final step for 1.2 is to update lwjgl, but I get AccessControlExceptions when playing in browser =( Google only says “sign the jar”

jeb_: I need to get 1.2 out today, so I’m giving up on the new lwjgl stuff. I’ll try again for 1.3…

He also posted on the Mojang Blog

Minecraft Snapshot 12w08a Download

Well guys, It has taken me some time to get round to this update as I have been obsessed with Homeland and not been able to get away long enough to type this up.. I’m actually watching it as I type this 😉

 

…Anyways, Jeb released the latest snapshot 12w08a last week;

jeb_: Snapshot week 8: http://www.mojang.com/2012/02/23/minecraft-snapshot-12w08a/

Here’s the development snapshot of week 8, 2012! We’ve been a little bit busy with the LEGO trip and Mojam, so the list of changes is a bit shorter than usual:

  • Added a defense mob to villages
  • Added up-side-down stairs
  • Many changes to the world and lighting system

Get the snapshot here:

If you haven’t downloaded Minecraft you can grab it here: www.minecraft.net/download

Next week we will mainly focus on bug fixing.

Jeb & Jonkagstrom were teasing the update a little before the release day.

jeb_: Helping @jonkagstrom with the artwork for the villager’s new zombie defense

mollstam: Deploying a sweet update filled with love and candy to the server join parts of the system. Might be a bit jumpy.

jeb_: We are preparing for the weekly snapshot… so let’s feature creep!

jeb_: Up-side-down stairs are the same block as the normal stairs, but flipped when you place them on the bottom of another (from below)

jeb_: Not doing up-side-down half-slabs right now, but maybe later. Next week will be bug-fixing week for a possible 1.2 release

 jonkagstrom: Me and @jeb_ have added a new mob.. Don’t mess with the villagers.

 

Looks cool 😀

Minecraft Snapshot 12w06a/b Download

Hello there, We are a day early today! This is because the Mojang lot are going to Lego World! 😉

Time to fly to Copenhagen for LEGOworld!!!! :)

But enough of that…. Lets get back to the Snapshot.

Jeb first released Minecraft 12w07a, this was then quickly replaced by 12w07b fixing a mob spawning crash bug.

Below is what Jeb had to say about it.

Here’s the development snapshot of week 7, 2012! List of changes:

  • Added new world file format called “Anvil” (256 max height and 4096 block IDs*)
  • Multi-player light calculations do no longer cause affected blocks to be transmitted to the clients, instead the clients will recalculate the light on their own
  • Villagers will repopulate villages based on how many houses there are available
  • Some nights in villages will be worse than others…
  • Added a redstone-controlled light source
  • Decreased chance for the rare mob drops
  • All animals use the new AI system now

* The game can’t use the full range of IDs yet because there are still some assumptions that IDs above 256 are items.

Update! New version number is 12w07b, fixing the following problems:

  • Crash bug corrupting levels when spawning mobs above the 255th block
  • Sheep animation is correct in SMP

Get the snapshot here:

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

NOTE: This snapshot will convert the maps you load to the new file format. If you want to revert to the old format, you need to replace the “level.dat” file with the file called “level.dat_mcr”. The new format will write world regions to files called “*.mca”, so your original regions will remain as “*.mcr”.

Please note that if you are using this snapshot, your worlds may not load properly if you “downgrade” to an older version again.

You can read the official post on the Mojang Blog

Jeb has reported one bug so far;

jeb_: Btw in the snapshot zombies tend to break down iron doors also. That’s a bug and will be fixed!

I’m keen to try out this zombie trick 😀

See the original post here.

It is good they have made taming Ocelots (Cats) easier, that would have saved @Mangler112 and myself a good 40mins.

We made a video showing some of the new updates.
