Are you ready for some snapshot? Good, because 14w33a is live! Bugfixes are starting to outpace features in these snapshots, which is usually a good indication that the development version is wrapping up soon. Still, features were slipped in, and here they are:


  • Iron Golems
  • Doors
    • Original wooden door renamed to "Oak Door"
    • Grid images of other doors changed to match existing doors
    • New doors added in 14w32d no longer have their 3D door hole models
  • Splashes
    • "This is good for realms." changed to "This is good for Realms."
  • Stone Slabs
