Minecraft Advancements 101 Advancements are trophies that clearly mark the barrier between the casual player and the intense gamer. For some, they are just notifications which pop up on your screen every now and then. For others, they add a whole new dimension to the game. In the case of Minecraft advancements, they can be […]

Minecraft snapshot 16w50a

Originally posted at: https://mojang.com/2016/12/minecraft-snapshot-16w50a/

We are happy to introduce the first (and final?) snapshot of Minecraft 1.11.1!!!!11oneone! This patch is mainly focused on fixing more bugs, but also contains a number of minor features just in time for the Holidays. In particular, there is a new use for the fireworks, but remember to be careful when handling explosives.

There is also a new (potentially controversial) change to the combat mechanics. Without revealing what it is, you will most definitely notice the difference when you try out the snapshot. We anticipate much feedback.

Continuing on the combat system, there is a new sword enchantment, and Mending is no longer compatible with Infinity on bows.

And finally, you can now recycle many tools and items in the furnace. The reward is minuscule but considerably better than nothing!

Bugs fixed in 16w50a:

  • [Bug MC-3607] – Some entities, enchanted gear and end portals render white while in fog / red while in lava
  • [Bug MC-7222] – 1-9 keys, hoppers/droppers and shift-clicking ignore stacking restrictions
  • [Bug MC-23039] – Dropped item disappear in Creative
  • [Bug MC-33383] – Lag while taking screenshot with F2
  • [Bug MC-67665] – Mouse click position always lags a few frames behind the crosshair

  • [Bug MC-104778] – Non-hostile wild wolves and ocelots cannot be put on leashes
  • [Bug MC-105049] – Infinite Durability for Carrot on a stick
  • [Bug MC-106117] – Clouds flicker between different positions when spectating minecart
  • [Bug MC-107638] – Baby Zombie Villager Voice sounds deep as adult version
  • [Bug MC-108319] – XP orbs sound effects mostly play high pitch sounds
  • [Bug MC-108464] – followRange Attribute doesn’t work properly on some mobs
  • [Bug MC-108673] – Fences and cobble walls moved by pistons don’t move entities in the upper part of their collision box
  • [Bug MC-108943] – CustomPotionColor doesn’t change the colors of the AreaOfEffectCloud / TippedArrow
  • [Bug MC-109028] – Picking up a flower from a Flower Pot makes no sound when you already have that flower in your inventory
  • [Bug MC-109038] – Spawner with missing “minecraft:” in entity id (or with not lowercased entity id) spawns this entity until you reload the world
  • [Bug MC-109805] – Farmland can be placed on invalid locations

  • [Bug MC-110474] – Activator Rail ejects Players (and 2 high Mobs) to the wrong spot inside of 2 high rooms
  • [Bug MC-110598] – Unicode characters which are not converted 1:1 when calling toLowerCase result in wrong formatting
  • [Bug MC-110756] – Llama yellow carpet model error
  • [Bug MC-110783] – Final firework rocket of a stack does not explode
  • [Bug MC-110808] – Eating Pufferfish in a stack of 1 does not give debuffs

Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, we can’t fix it!

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.

Shouldn't you be on Minecraft.net right now?

Hey! 

This blog is no longer the go-to place for official Minecraft news! From now on we’ll be posting snapshots, updates, and lots, lots more on Minecraft.net. 

Minecraft.net! Bookmark it! Make it your homepage! Print it on a t-shirt (don’t use our assets because you might get sued by our ruthless enforcement team). 

Why have we done this? Learn that and more on Minecraft.net!

Note: we’ll still use this blog for any Mojang news that’s not relevant to Minecraft. There’s not a lot of that about right now but thought it was worth mentioning. 

Thanks!

Fight in a fort or toss a tuber

Ah, Friday. For many, this signals the start of two free days to kick back and play their favorite games. To help you out with that, we’ve put some new maps on Minecraft Realms for PC, and have brought back some old favorites as well. Whether you’d like to quietly admire new builds by yourself, or frenetically compete with a group of friends, we’ve got something for everyone!

Hot Potato by Team Cryus

Gather your friends and grab a potato! Hot Potato is the kind of sport where you don’t want to be left holding the ball. Keep your eyes peeled for any agitators rushing you with a spud, and if you get hit, mash your mouse until you pass it off to someone else. These are exploding tubers, so toss them before they detonate!

Vaslen by Excessed

If you’d like to start a new survival game, but don’t want to stress over building up your farms, fire up this world template. In Vaslen, you’ll find a green mesa and five cozy shacks. Just be careful, this map starts at night!

Fort Craft by goCreative

Zombies gather to attack, beginning their approach to your fort. The narrow canyon walls make it difficult for the creatures to move in groups, and from your perch in the guard tower, you line up the perfect shot. With a quiver of arrows and a bit of luck, the sun will be up before the monsters reach you.

Other additions

We have another round of 1.11 compatibility updates for you! If you haven’t played these before, give them a try. This week, the following maps make their return to Realms:

  • Valley of Kings
  • Trick or Treat
  • Sunburn Phoenix
  • Makers Wars

We also have a special mention, for anyone that didn’t catch the Light Your Way Home blog post. The map, aptly titled Light Your Way Home, is part of the #MinecraftIRL campaign, designed to blur the lines between the real world and the crafted world. You can grab this map on Realms, under the adventure map category.

Winter is… on the way

Our next Realms content update, appropriately winter and/or holiday themed, is on December 16th! Make sure that you check in on that day for another blog post filled with all of the details.

If you’re curious about how to get your own creations on Minecraft Realms, check out our updated guidelines over at /r/Realms.

That’s all for now! See you next time!
