Minecraft Snapshot 20w20b

A Minecraft Java Snapshot

This week we are releasing a bit of a smaller snapshot. However, if you're into switching game modes and completing advancements, this is right up your alley!

Edit: We've now released 20w20b to fix a bug.

Fixed bug in 20w20b

New Features in in 20w20a

  • Added new Game Mode Switcher debug menu
  • Added new Nether Advancements

Game Mode Switcher

New F3 debug feature which allows you to switch game modes with traditional "tabbing" functionality.

  • Hold F3 and tap F4 to open the menu
  • Tapping F4 will cycle the game mode, or you can use the mouse
  • Release F3 to apply
  • Your last game mode is remembered and will be the first selected option, so you can quickly toggle between two game modes with a single press of F3 + F4!

F3 + N (Toggle Spectator)

A small change has been made to this debug combination.

  • By default, using this key would return to Creative after toggling from Spectator. It now will toggle back to the previous game mode you had
  • As an example, if you were in Survival, then toggled to Spectator and back, you would be set back to Survival
