This week's Snapshot is out for testing! What cool features have been added this go-around? Let's take a look:

  • Many minor bug fixes and tweaks
  • Doors have been changed to properly detect if they are open or closed. Double doors in existing maps will need to be updated
  • Villagers will move indoors during night and rain, and socialize with each other
  • Zombies will break down wooden doors on hard difficulty
  • Added cat sounds
  • Better movement for mobs in water
  • Added rare mob item drops

Are you ready to defend your newly interactive villagers from door-destroying zombies? Get your Snapshot downloads in the links below!

12w06a Client

12w06a Server

We will be examining some of these changes in greater detail, but in the meantime, we have the following to consider - how are your villagers behaving with this update? How awesome is it to have working double-doors? What sort of rare items do mobs drop? Let us know about it!

All I read was "[b]Zombies will break down wooden doors on hard difficulty[/b]"

Thank You GOD! (aka Jon) I have been waiting for something like this since I first started playing Minecraft!

Zombie thing is awesome. Any idea what the item drop is?

Everything I build is 100% legit. No mods, no tools, nothing but time and effort.

I don't know why, but [b]cat sounds[/b] are what sold this snapshot to me.

Also, time to switch to iron doors.

Good stuff, especially the last one. However, I'm desperately waiting for info on mod integration.

Finally villagers do stuff rather than walk around. And those "rare item drops", I wonder what these could be....

I can confirm the 'rare' items seem to be nothing new, so far i've got an iron sword and a iron helmet from zombies. so its just general crafting loot which is kewl i guess



Posted 09 February 2012 - 11:14 AM

New drops?  :mellow:

Must.... find.... DROP! *flails arms* :Sheep:
Click it.

Where is our official mod support?

I wonder if Villagers will move into homes they find suitable that the player builds....
I bet the rare mob drops aren't anything new, but rather ores and stuff. Maybe potions, armor, misc Nic-naks.
And the double doors.... does both open at the opening of one?

All to be found out in the thrilling new PRE-RELEASE WEEK SIX SNAPSHOT-HOT-OT-T

Zombies sometimes drop armor and tools, Skeles can drop bows! :D

might be annoying for xp grinders though....

I tamed a cat and it makes sounds! It's so cute now :3
It's going "purr,purr" just like a real cat :3
EDIT: I found an NPC village,villagers now visit other NPC houses!
This snapshot is amazing!
