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.
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.
A potential means of recovering corrupted worlds using MCEdit was made available by a Reddit user, on this thread.
- 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).
/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].
/replaceitem entity @e[type=Zombie] slot.weapon minecraft:iron_sword 1 0will give all the zombies iron swords.
/replaceitem entity @p slot.hotbar.0 minecraft:fish 4 2will put 4 clownfish in the players first hotbar slot.
/replaceitem block ~ ~-1 ~ slot.container.5 minecraft:redstone_block 1 0will put a redstone block in the 6th slot of a container 1 block beneath the player.
- Full syntax:
- 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.
- 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.
- The wood part of the frame now uses the oak texture rather than the birch texture.
