The latest snapshot (Weekly Chunk – Pax/Minecon/Snapshot)

The main features:
  • 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
  • flower pots
  • work start on new mob - Wither
  • Removed the “wip block” from the creative menu
  • Added two new crops (potatoes and carrots) and associated items. Carrots can be used to make a potion of night vision.
  • Potion of invisibility
  • 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)

This snapshot also nerfs xp factories a little. They can be used but if used too much, they will stop working for a while. To quote Dinnerbone:

Quote:
The new mobspwner xp mechanic resets every so often. You can still grind exp every now and again, just not for 1000 levels in 2 hours.

The goal isn't to stop you from using them entirely or punish you even, it's just to dissuade you from using them all the time vs other ways

As I said, this isn't to stop them entirely, just not usable more than once every few minutes.

It doesn't affect item drops at all, don't worry about those ;D

The new stuff keeps on getting found. Someone has found that mobs are now picking up and using items from the ground (New Minecraft Addition - Imgur).

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.

Apparently this snapshot has greater power over the weather:

In the snapshot you can type /weather clear 1000000 for a really long non-rainy day

Another snapshot: Minecraft Snapshot 12w37a
The main changes are:
  • Superflat customization options
  • Pigs are now able to jump when players ride on them
  • Added /clear command to empty the inventory
  • Evil mobs are now a little bit more fearless in hard difficulty and will jump down cliffs if they think it is "safe".

Oups nevermind, beacons don't work either (no tile id values above 127 works in the snapshot, will be fixed obviously)
