Snapshot 14w05a Ready for Testing!

One day, Dinnerbone wrote some really important information that changed the fate of humanity, and nobody knew it because nobody reads this text anyway, except the guy referencing it for updates. Oh, sorry, what was that? Snapshot? Oh right yes of course! Here we go:


  • Book copying mechanics has been altered to differentiate the original & copies of books
  • Activator rails can eject entities from Minecarts

  • Added a spectator gamemode (/gamemode spectator). Not 100% finished.
  • Spectators cannot be seen by anybody but other spectators
  • Spectators can view inventories/etc, but not modify them
  • Spectators can go through any entity or block without interfering with it
  • Spectators can click on entities to take their camera
  • Spectators cannot use items, place blocks, destroy blocks or interact with blocks in any way
  • Spectators are only slightly buggy maybe sometimes

Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to If nobody reports a bug, we can’t fix it!

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, please backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.
