Is this floating head part of the snapshot? Maybe.

I’ve never written about a Minecraft snapshot in my life, so this will be an exciting new adventure for all of us. Seems like it’s effectively a developer build that you can take a look at, and this new one is called 14w02b. By the sounds of things, 14w02a had some crashing issues, so this one might fix some of those.

To activate a snapshot in Minecraft, follow these handy instructions.

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.

Remember to back up your worlds before trying any of this. Here are some of the changes you should see in 14w02b:

Big survival changes:

  • 3 new stone types!
  • Major Enchanting & Repairing changes!
  • Mossy stone bricks recipe!
  • Updated Villager trading!
  • Doors stack!
  • Slime blocks!
  • Lots of other tweaks, changes, bug fixes and secret features!

Big Adventure Map changes:

  • Adventure Mode no longer lets you place/destroy blocks.
  • But that can change!
  • Added Entity Selectors! Use @e in certain commands to target entities. You can limit it with [type=Chicken] or [type=!Skeleton]
  • Added a /blockdata command!
  • Added ‘Lock’ (String) NBT tag on most containers.
  • Added an optional entity parameter to /kill (try: /kill @e[type=!Player]
  • Added optional arguments to /clear for max item count (use 0 to not actually delete anything) & NBT data
  • Lots of other tweaks, changes, bug fixes and secret features!
