Snapshot 16w50a Ready For Testing



Snapshot season is here again! 1.11.1 has its first (and possibly only) snapshot, which adds a few new goodies, and fixes a lot of bugs.


The holidays account for a few new additions (the fireworks in particular, for example), but more still are there just for fun!





  • Change to combat mechanics

    • The crosshair attack indicator now always displays if fully loaded while looking at an entity (signified by an exclamation mark underneath)
  • Enchantment changes

    • New sword enchantment
      • "Sweeping Edge"
      • Up to 3 levels
      • Improves sweeping damage
    • Mending is no longer compatible with Infinity on bows
  • Iron nuggets

    • Crafting: 9 nuggets for 1 ingot and vice-versa
  • Many tools and items can now be recycled in furnaces

    • Gold and iron tools/weapons/armor/horse armor yield one gold/iron nugget each
    • Chain armor -> iron nugget
  • A fireworks feature

    • Right-clicking fireworks while flying gives a small speed boost
    • Firework rockets with an explosion now do damage
      • Death message: "<player> went off with a bang"

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).
