15w33a Snapshot Ready for Testing!


Features are present, though few are currently known. They will be posted as they are discovered! Alright, enough small talk - let's dive into this week's bag of feature-rich goodies!



Splash text
  • "More Digital!"
Lingering Potion
  • Thrown like a splash potion.
    • Leaves a bubble of the potion particle
      • While that bubble is there, if a mob/player walks into it, they will get the effect
  • Has all the potion types
    • Even works with potions whose effect are instant, like Harming
  • Brewed with Dragon's Breath and a Splash Potion
    • Because you cannot put a splash potion into the brewing stand, you have to do it differently
      • Make a normal splash potions and don't take them out, then combine them with Dragon's Breath
Dragon's Breath!
  • Found in the brewery section of the creative inventory
  • Can be used to brew Lingering Potions with Dragon's Breath and Splash Potion.
  • Can be obtained by right clicking with a Glass Bottle while the dragon breathes the item.
  • Stacks in the inventory

End Gateway block

  • Changed texture
    • Instead of each side having a texture, creating a weird effect, it is all one texture, not each individual side
Ender Dragon
  • Made the fight harder[2]
    • It now breathes the new Dragon Breath when hovering over the exit portal.
  • The fireballs now act like a lingering potion
    • The fireball will create dragon breath that lingers
  • It is invincible to arrows while at the portal
    • Arrows will bounce back and hold a flame as if they were shot using a bow that has the Flame enchantment
  • When shooting splash/lingering potions, they shoot very far, like throwing a snowball

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.
