Default The latest Minecraft snapshot

Okay, I think we need a separate thread for Minecraft development snapshots. Unless the Division's admins decide otherwise, we will not be updating the TOG servers to snapshots simply because the mods we use only get updated to full releases (and the snapshots are more prone to bugs than full releases).

Jens has released the latest:
* Client http://assets.minecraft.net/11w49a/minecraft.jar
* Server http://assets.minecraft.net/11w49a/minecraft_server.jar

The description is at Minecraft Development Snapshot Week 49

The major changes are:
  • Sheep eat grass and regain their wool
  • Farmland is no longer destroyed by items and particles (haha, lol…)
  • Added a “spawn mob” egg item to creative mode
  • Corrected a setTileEntity multiplayer bug
  • Corrected a powered rail bug
  • Corrected a redstone update bug
The multi-language project is still in progress but elements of it have been added.

The following demonstrates the effect of the eggs spawning mobs. You can only get the eggs in creative, but as the video demonstrates, you can them set yourself to survival mode.

For the future AI changes,

The first goal is to add breeding support to wolves, and then move on to more useful / interesting villagers.
but that is still to be done.

Jon (@jonkagstrom) wants to add jungle animals later, but they will not be included in today's snapshot

Old worlds will not get errors, but you will need a new world to get jungles
He hasn't been clear whether newly generated chunks could have jungles or not.

UPDATE: From Jens on reddit

Hey
If you really want the jungles in your 1.1 worlds, you can trick the game to use the new generator by editing the level.dat file with a NBT editor.
The game looks for the tag called "generatorName", and if it's "default" it will also check "generatorVersion" (if it's available). If the version is 0, it will replace the generator with "default_1_1" instead of "default" to switch to the old generator.
To keep the new generator, change "generatorName" to "default" again and set "generatorVersion" to 1. Please note that this will mess up the whole biome randomizer, so it may start snowing in your desert if you're unlucky.

EDIT: I'm sorry, I didn't intend to hi-jack this thread. Show him some upvotes!

The latest snapshot (http://mojang.com/2012/02/02/minecraft-snapshot-12w05a/):

The major features are:

  • Many mob-related bug fixes (and some new behaviors)
  • Ocelots are easier to tame, and cats can be told to sit
  • Villagers will try to detect village houses and live in them
  • Updated language files (now with 50% less profanities!)

The word on the street is that creepers don't like ocelots/cats. While they now are better at chasing you, they won't go near a feline. So people will need a cat and dog for defensive and offensive purposes now.

And the villagers can open and shut doors, though there might be a bug with some doors. Hopefully this means that Obsi won't have to fence in the villagers any more so they don't leave their villages.

well, no, not unless they are also coded to stay within a close distance of their houses.... otherwise that now means the stupid villagers will open their doors to escape and wander off into the wilderness, get trapped in wells, fall into crevasses.... at least before you could rely on only the houses without doors letting the NPCs out, or whose walls hadn't fully loaded and let the NPCs escape.

Though I think it's a cool next step for them... I'll still be walling the villages though, to keep them safe. Sometimes you have to be cruel to be kind
