New Minecraft Snapshot Build Available, Things Get Hardcore

by David GeesonFebruary 9, 2012

For those not in the know, every once in a while the nice folks at Mojang like to release a snapshot of the upcoming builds – Today is one of those days! Snapshot 12w06a is available for download, bringing with it a hefty look at some of the changes in the upcoming patch.

Links to download the snapshot build and client server will be featured at the bottom of the post, for now though let’s look at the upcoming changes:

  • Minor fixes and tweaks
  • Doors should now properly detect if they’re open or closed. Existing double doors will need to be re-placed
  • Villagers will head inside at night and during rain to socialize
  • Zombies can (and will) break down your doors on hard mode
  • Meow!!  (More cat sounds!)
  • Mobs move better in water, unfortunately
  • Added Rare mob item drops

As well as these changes Jeb  has been talking about some more radical changes. One such proposed idea will raise the virtual cap on the world, making it possible to build further up. The trouble comes in adding this change to existing worlds, at the moment it’s being worked on but it may be a while before you can start building those skyscrapers.

    Do you simply snap your wrists or do you pull your stick back again a couple of inches and than snap your wrists and the puck? How do the pros make it search like they never ever pull the puck back yet are in a position to snap it top shelf whilst skating down the slot in entrance of the goalie? I have a reliable wrist shot and for a snapshot can snap the puck each ways, pulling it again or not pulling the puck back. But which is the appropriate way and which way ought to i be working on to make the shot more powerful?

    What if your tourist photograph or snapshot showing you and the attraction is just actually bad?
    What if your tourist photograph or snapshot displaying you and the attraction is just actually bad?
    Did it at any time transpire to you that you traveled to a popular tourist place both at residence or abroad and you asked an individual to just take photographs of you and the attraction and the photo is just not nice. Both there is too considerably distractions or either you or the attraction is not great and clear enough?
    What did you do if anything at all after you traveled property already?

    All computers are joined in the domain to a server or
    All computers are joined in the domain under a server?

    I am not sure if clients would be considered “under” a server as like saying workers are under management. I know a server provides services and autthtication but I am not sure if I server would be higher then a client. Would Anyone know?

    Maybe to secure their spot in the bunker for something big to happen or maybe he told president Obama that jeb will replace him in 2016 so we can have a 6th term of Bush. Bush sr bush jr and Obama.

    If John Ellis “Jeb” Bush was the Vice President Nominee for the Republican Nominee for President of the United States of America in 2008, would you vote Republican for President? Why or why not?

    If Jeb Bush was the Vice President Nominee, I would absolutely Vote Republican because I can be insured that George W. Bush’s legacy of Hard Work, Prosperity, and Success can Continue for Four More Years.
    John Ellis Bush is Jeb Bush. Jeb is a nickname for John Ellis Bush and he is related to President of the United States of America George W. Bush.

    Whether I use dark colored planks or light colored planks, I still get the normal colored stairs/ladders/etc. Will Jeb ever make same colored items for the different colored planks?
