12w34a Snapshot Available for Testing!

The Snapshot

We have seen some interesting teaser pics from Dinnerbone over the last few weeks, and this Snapshot includes a number of features related to those screenshots! A number of these will be familiar to everyone - item frames, stone walls, dyed armor - but there are a number of additional awesome features not mentioned before! Check out the full list below:

  • Added item frames
  • Added cobblestone walls (yes, mossy too)
  • Maps now align to a grid, making it easier to create adjacent maps. Maps can also be cloned
  • Stairs now auto-arrange into corners. This is a test and may change based on feedback
  • Mobs can travel through portals
  • Leather clothes can be dyed
  • Removed the “wip block” from the creative menu
  • Added two new crops and associated items
  • F3+P will toggle the auto-pause when the window loses focus (it’s for debugging, mainly)
  • F3+H will toggle detailed item descriptions (also for debugging)
  • Added arrow-sensitive wooden buttons
  • Trapdoors can be placed in top-most position (based on cross-hair aim)

MineTV Updates

The video above is a highlight reel of MineTV's Episode 3, with mod maker and hilarious commentator Pahimar! At the time, it was believed that a 2-hour episode might be a bit long for people to sit through, but due to a rather overwhelming volume of mail demanding the full episode, it will be uploaded in its entirety later today - be sure to subscribe to the channel for real-time updates!
