Minecraft Snapshot 23w14a

A Minecraft Java Snapshot

We are now releasing Snapshot 23w14a, containing changes to Sculk blocks and Enchanting Tables, a new Quick Play functionality, an updated logo for Java Edition, a new main menu panorama, and lots of bug fixes!

Happy mining!


  • Changes to Sculk blocks
  • Replaceable blocks no longer block the connection between Enchanting Tables and Bookshelves
  • In the Desert Temple, the new room has more of its roof collapsed and one block of Suspicious Sand is always visible in the top layer
  • Updated the Minecraft: Java Edition logo
  • The main menu background is now a Trails & Tales panorama

Sculk Shrieker

  • Waterlogging them will now silence their shriek sounds
  • Added to the Redstone Blocks tab in the creative menu

Sculk Sensor

  • For both normal and calibrated Sculk Sensors, the following changes have been made:
    • Default redstone output has been modified to be more reliable for distance calculations
    • Now strongly powers the block they are placed on

Calibrated Sculk Sensor

  • Has an active cooldown of 1 second instead of 2 seconds
  • Detects vibrations up to 16 blocks away instead of 8 blocks
  • Accepts signals into the calibration input side more consistently with other Redstone components
    • For example, signals can now be received through a block

Technical Changes

  • Signs with click commands can now be interacted with even if the Sign is not waxed
    • Signs with non-text chat components can no longer be edited
  • Added new loot table function called reference
  • Added support for Quick Play
  • Removed the server & port arguments as their functionality has been replaced by Quick Play
  • Changes to tags
  • The resource pack version is now 14
    • Updated the sprite layout of minecraft.png
    • Removed the overriding minecraft.png from the Programmer Art resource pack
    • Updated the sprite layout of invite_icon.png

Loot tables


New function reference allows functions to call sub-functions (similar to reference condition).Fields:

  • name - location of function to call

Quick Play

  • Added support for four new command line arguments that allow the game to be launched directly into a world
  • quickPlayPath takes a specified path for logging (relative to the run directory)
    • If a path is provided the following will be logged upon joining a world:
      • type: is either singleplayer, multiplayer, or realms
      • identifier: represents the world you want to join
        • For singleplayer, the folder name of the world
        • For multiplayer, the IP address of the server
        • For realms, the Realms ID
      • port: represents the server port and is only logged for multiplayer
      • name: The name of the world
      • gamemode: The gamemode of the world
      • lastPlayedTime: The time you joined the world
    • Example:
      • --quickPlayPath "quickPlay/log.json" will resolve into .minecraft/quickPlay/log.json
  • quickPlaySingleplayer, quickPlayMultiplayer and quickPlayRealms all take their respective identifier
    • If one of these arguments is provided, the game will try to launch directly into the given world
    • Examples:
      • --quickPlaySingleplayer "New World"
      • --quickPlayMultiplayer "localhost:25565"
      • --quickPlayRealms "1234"


  • Added replaceable_by_trees, to better express blocks that are replaced when the tree grows through them
  • Removed replaceable_plants since it was only used as a subset of the blocks for the tag above, and not as universally
  • Added sword_efficient, to represent blocks that are broken slightly faster by a sword than normal
