This week's Snapshot has a massive number of features!  In addition to trading updates, enchantment improvements and SSP/SMP merging improvements, Adventure Map makers will be thrilled to know that there is a new game mode - "Adventure Mode" - to be tested!  This mode prevents players from breaking blocks, while still allowing interactions like button/lever use, trading with villagers, and so on.  The full feature list is below!

Client Download:  Download

Server Download:  Download


New/Improved Features:
  • Trading with villagers has been updated
  • Villagers can now trade 2 items with you (e.g. 1 emerald 10 gravel -> 10 flint)
  • Enchantment system has been re-balanced
  • A full enchantment table set with bookshelves doesn't go up to 50, but 30
  • At the bottom of the 3 enchantments it always shows you the highest number possible
  • Using level 30 you have a lot more luck; almost all items get at least 2 enchantments
  • Emerald Ore can be found underground again (only in Extreme Mountain Biomes still)
  • Added Tripwire Hooks
  • Added potions to the creative inventory; found under brewing
  • Added Block of Emerald
  • Added delete item, armor and crafting to survival inventory when in creative
  • Pausing should work in single-player now
  • Some minor terrain changes
  • Added an "adventure" game mode (/gamemode 2)
    - You cannot break or place any blocks
    - You can interact with any blocks like doors and levers and you can buy things from villagers
  • Added cobblestone and stonebrick monster eggs to the creative inventory

Bug Fixes:
  • In the redstone tab of the creative inventory, the redstone torch is now on instead of being off
  • In the decoration tab of the creative inventory, the redstone torch got removed

New Bugs:
  • You can place wire from the tripwire in the air and once updated it will drop string
  • You can't hear TNT when you are out of an 16 block range.


Mojang also had the following to add regarding installation of Snapshots:

Jeb said:

The snapshots can potentially destroy your save games, even though we try our best not to do that. Only use them if you know what you are doing. To “install” a snapshot, you download the JAR file and replace the one located in your “application data” folder. The easiest way to find that folder is to start the game, select “texture packs” and click on the “open texture pack folder” button. It will locate “.minecraft/texturepacks”, and the JAR file should be placed in “.minecraft/bin”.

To UNINSTALL the snapshot, start the launcher (Minecraft.exe on Windows) and click the “options” button. Then click on “force update” and login as usual. The launcher will then download the official JAR file for you. Note that save games created in the snapshot may not work (and probably doesn’t) in the official version of the game.

I like that Jeb and the Mojang squad are pushing headlong to 1.3, but I am going to skip this snapshot I think. The ".jar file" juggling is getting to be a bit too much for me because I love playing on my SMP, and I know I'll botch something up. I'm going to wait for 1.3, let the younger and more brave test this one, good luck guys!
I'm the one who knocks.

Well...just saying...Gamemode 2 (Adventure Mode) makes it to where you cannot place blocks...AT ALL. So no one could grief or even build for that matter. As a matter of fact, I turned on AM just to see what it was like, and you just swing your arms. It's not like bedrock with the infinite mining animation. It's like clicking the LMB.
" For servers that show up something they build. Instead of make an backup , you can just changes there gamemode (if your an OP/Admin). If you have bukkit can setup areas / ranks where you have or not have this gamemode.
Sorry for any spelling / grammar mistakes. English isn't my primary language.

Give a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day.

Quick video for creating trip wire..

Woah. 10 mins into my first singleplayer map for this snapshot and I'm level 25. Needs to go back to level 50 I think or maybe 40.

<EDIT> Like 20 mins into the game I am level 45. The Xp is just too easy to achieve now. Also mining lapis and redstone is almost 1 level every ore you break haha.

The foot note of emerald ore is " Emerald Ore Eh?"

Adventure mode AND Tripwires makes GREAT for my adventure-map work in progress, but still I cannot wait for the next update! It looks absolutelly great!
"There is a world we cannot see, a world where all our imagination, dreams and fantasies lay true with no limitations and endless freedom. It is there as we speak, and it will always be there. Our world will never be able to connect to the other, but we will know that it is there, beyond this world. Those who you have lost in this world is there, and you will meet them when you are no longer part of our current world."

Adventure Mode?  Now that is pretty cool.  I'm not sure about tripwires.  It's awesome that I could do it, but not so awesome that everyone else can. :-)

I liked the 50 enchanting...I think it should be fairly hard to get to.  Especially if (like the server I run) you get XP from mining and such.



Posted 31 May 2012 - 12:26 PM

The Tripwire and the block of emerald are an good idea, but what can you do in adventure mode?Are there hidden chests?

when this update well come?



Posted 31 May 2012 - 12:31 PM

Oh my God, tripwires. It's happening.
Inb4 Vechs maps get even more rage inducing.

(Also, I'm curious to see how different is the enchantment system now! Hopefully less frustrating!)

"Emerald Ore Eh?"
