Java Edition



Release date

Snapshot for



Client (.json)
Server (.exe)

Protocol version


14w26a is the twenty-ninth snapshot released for 1.8. This snapshot is the first after a decision to release snapshots on Wednesdays rather than on Thursdays.[1]

It is strongly advised to make a backup of a world before using this snapshot, because of block-corrupting problems that were not corrected until 14w26c.[1]

A potential means of recovering corrupted worlds using MCEdit was made available by a Reddit user, on this thread.


World generation

Debug mode world type
  • Useful for resource pack makers.
  • Hold ⇧ Shift and cycle through "World Type" to select it.
  • Spectator mode recommended to avoid crashes (creative mode can also be used without any effect on some machines).
  • All possible blocks with all possible data values are generated.
    • They are arranged in a grid across height y=70, with a barrier floor at y=60.
  • Blocks placed are deleted, and blocks destroyed are restored.
    • There is a special generator option preventing this. It is called "debug_all_block_states". If the player changes this to "flat" or "default" in NBTexplorer, the player will be able to interact with the world. Only for a short period though, on most machines there will be lots of lag or the game might crash (Not recommended to play survival on).

Command format

/replaceitem <entity|block> ...
  • Can replace items in any inventory, including the inventories of mobs such as zombies.
    • Full syntax:
      • /replaceitem entity <entity> <slot> <item> [amount] [data value].
      • /replaceitem block <x> <y> <z> <slot> <item> [amount] [data value].
    • Example: /replaceitem entity @e[type=Zombie] slot.weapon minecraft:iron_sword 1 0 will give all the zombies iron swords.
    • Example: /replaceitem entity @p slot.hotbar.0 minecraft:fish 4 2 will put 4 clownfish in the players first hotbar slot.
    • Example: /replaceitem block ~ ~-1 ~ slot.container.5 minecraft:redstone_block 1 0 will put a redstone block in the 6th slot of a container 1 block beneath the player.
  • sendCommandFeedback
    • If set to false, player-run commands will not show a success message.



  • Switched to only/mostly using blockstates in the code, though not all block combinations are blockstates yet.
Command blocks
  • X/O button next to "Last output" in command block to turn off the last output string.
  • Empty furnaces will now only accept fuel and empty buckets in the fuel slot.
Item frames
  • The wood part of the frame now uses the oak texture rather than the birch texture.
Melon stems
  • Changed model from Attached Melon Stem (N) JE3.pngAttached Melon Stem (E) JE3.pngAttached Melon Stem (S) JE3.pngAttached Melon Stem (W) JE3.png to Attached Melon Stem (N) JE4.pngAttached Melon Stem (E) JE4.pngAttached Melon Stem (S) JE4.pngAttached Melon Stem (W) JE4.png

World generation

Customized world type

Command format

  • Now has a detect argument (sub-command, only works when used with execute).
    • Allows the execute command to run only if a block is detected at a specific location relative to the target.
    • Example: /execute @a ~ ~ ~ detect ~ ~-1 ~ minecraft:grass 0 say You are standing on grass..
  • Block limit changed from 4096 to 32768 blocks.
    • Now has an add argument.
      • Similar to the set argument, but can be used to add (or remove) a certain number of blocks to the world border distance.
      • Negative numbers can be used to remove blocks.
      • Example: /worldborder add -75 will shrink the world border width by 75 blocks.


Block models
  • Instead of specifying uvs, the player can now choose textures to be projected onto the model.
  • Reworked 3D resources, adding the possibility of new blocks with multiple textures.
