I have been playing the snapshot today with the kids on our home server. So many great additions. Took us a few hours just to play around with the new features like walls, frames, invis pots etc.
We spawned right next to a viilage and a forest. The forest had a lava pit which set all the trees on fire but we saved the village and found a very nice chest.
The invis pots give total invisibility for 6 minutes. Very powerful.
Saw a zombie carrying a sword, it ran up and chopped me in half
This is the first snapshot i have played but definitely worth checking out.
