The Snapshot

Posted Image


We have seen some interesting teaser pics from Dinnerbone over the last few weeks, and this Snapshot includes a number of features related to those screenshots!  A number of these will be familiar to everyone - item frames, stone walls, dyed armor - but there are a number of additional awesome features not mentioned before!  Check out the full list below:

  • 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
  • Removed the “wip block” from the creative menu
  • Added two new crops and associated items
  • 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)

MineTV Updates

The video above is a highlight reel of MineTV's Episode 3, with mod maker and hilarious commentator Pahimar!  At the time, it was believed that a 2-hour episode might be a bit long for people to sit through, but due to a rather overwhelming volume of mail demanding the full episode, it will be uploaded in its entirety later today - be sure to subscribe to the channel for real-time updates!

Looks awesome. I'm pleased with the content that Mojang are adding to the game so far. :)

But yeah... you forgot to link to the snapshot. Going to have to download it from mojang.com for the time being.

Are the carrots and potatoes available in survival? Maybe in chests?
