To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog). Snapshots can corrupt your world.

The "reports bug here" link in this article is invalid, as explained just before the bug fixes. (Sorry)

Villagers? DOING STUFF?!? It's gonna be like we're playing a whole new game now!

In all seriousness, though, really can't wait for this update.

I love replacing all the stone in a chunk with air in the newest snapshot using /fill. Great for information about ore generation.

I hate when they add the 'secret' things, then you always want to test the snapshot to be the first one to find them.

Anyone else experiencing major drops in FPS when the game generates new chunks? In last week's snapshot I'm getting an average of 45 FPS and in this one it drops to 20... Unbearable. I hope they'll fix it.



Posted 23 January 2014 - 06:40 PM

I had an idea on how to exploit the new villager AI to farm crops automatically already :3.

The snapshot is cool, especially with the F3 changes.

One thing I noticed is that you can't use relative coords with /particle, which is ridiculously annoying. I hope that's a bug or something that is changed in the next snapshot.
The Darkness will win one day, and light's time being the winner is nearing it's end. Because light is overrated.
People, the Modification Development section is for MODS, not Bukkit plugins. Do not be surpised if you don't get any help from there.

Now the question is: is "seecret" intentionally typoed or not?

Because you can already do that with levers.

It's probably a bug.

The 1.8 update is looking awesomer by each snapshot. I like the villager AI changes, all the bug fixing and the /particle command.

Probably intentional.
