It's that time again — a new Minecraft snapshot has been released. So what's new this week? As per usual, Nathan "Dinnerbone" Adams has provided a nice concise list of changes contained in snapshot 14w05a:
Notable additions for survival:
- Book copying mechanics has been altered to differentiate the original & copies of books
- Activator rails can eject entities from Minecarts
Notable additions for mapmakers:
- Added a spectator gamemode (/gamemode spectator). Not 100% finished.
- Spectators cannot be seen by anybody but other spectators
- Spectators can view inventories/etc, but not modify them
- Spectators can go through any entity or block without interfering with it
- Spectators can click on entities to take their camera
- Spectators cannot use items, place blocks, destroy blocks or interact with blocks in any way
- Spectators are only slightly buggy maybe sometimes
