Minecraft Snapshots

Parts Of PC Minecraft Have Changed A Bit


Mojang has introduced another update to the original Minecraft. Some big additions are on the way, though we don’t know what they are (Minecon is next month; we’ll undoubtedly learn something then).

Below you will find the latest changelog, otherwise technically known as Snapshot 16W32A. Have fun and keep mining.


  • Wither Skeletons can now spawn with equipment
  • /give now ignores stacking restrictions
  • Entity ids now have “minecraft:” prefixes
  • Renamed some entity ids
  • Block ids, entity ids and item ids are no longer case sensitive
  • Changed the duration of hunger and saturation effects
  • Resource pack format changed slightly, it’s now using version 3
    • Version 3 resource packs have to use lowercase filenames for everything
  • Some mobs are now more afraid to get wet in the water
  • Most commands can now use blockstate definitions instead of a numerical metadata value
    • /setblock can now place blocks referred to by blockstate
      • /setblock ~ ~ ~ minecraft:birch_fence_gate facing=west,open=true
      • /setblock ~ ~ ~ minecraft:birch_fence_gate default
      • Data values still work
      • * as placeholder for no specified value for /testforblock, default to refer to the default block state
  • More robust handling of invalid items and hopefully less duping bugs due to this change
  • Lightning storms will now attract fewer skeleton horses
  • Significantly reduced hunger rate for everything but healing
  • Chat warnings like “You can only sleep at night” now appear in the status bar
  • Creepers inflicted with potion effects now leave a lingering effect of those effects when exploding
  • /summon now accepts entity ids for what used to be variant mobs
    • Re-added the 1.10 snapshot spawn eggs
    • Mob types are now separated like this:
      • Guardian and ElderGuardian
