Performance Updates, Banners Added in Latest Snapshot


Do you love low framerates? Do you think it makes it better and more challenging to hit a zombie when you can barely move? Then you’ll hate the latest Minecraft snapshot from Mojang, 14w30C, which makes “major optimizations” to the client rendering, which should make the game smoother.


The snapshot also includes a new feature, banners. Banners are just signs you can put a basic image on, but you can imagine the possibilities for clans, streamers, and the like. As you can see in the pictures above, the Minecraft community has kind of gone nuts over them.

Here’s the list of changes straight from Mojang and Nathan “Dinnerbone” Adams:

• Added Banners! But I’m not going to tell you how they work 🙂
• Made Creeper, Skeleton and Zombie Heads available in survival. How? Don’t ask me!
• Major optimizations to client rendering. It’s magical!
• Lots of fun bugs fixed. Lighting should behave a little nicer now!
• Crafting cuddles now requires one extra hug in the recipe.
