Minecraft Snapshot 18w47b

A Village & Pillage Java Snapshot

Todays snapshot is nice and peaceful. We've gone and fixed some bugs, cleaned up so much code, nothing can go wr███████████████ ...

Oh no...

UPDATE: We fixed some more things! Enjoy the snapshot and have a great weekend!

Changes in 18w47b

  • Numerous worldgen performance improvements
  • Adjusted mob spawning behavior to be closer to that of 1.13.2
  • More Jappa texture changes
  • Fixed strongholds not generating properly
  • Reduced the cluster size of Pillager spawning so Outposts aren't flooded by Pillagers

Changes in 18w47a

  • Added Pillager Outpost
  • Added Raids
  • Changed some block textures based on feedback

Pillager Outpost

  • As if finding Pillagers out in the wild wasn't scary enough with Patrols, keep an eye out as out on your exploration you may just find an outpost of theirs.
  • Can be found in any biome a village can be generated.
  • Takes advantage of our new mystery block, the Jigsaw, for generation.


  • If you find an illager wearing a banner on its head, be careful not to kill it!
  • If you do kill it, you might find yourself facing a Bad Omen
  • If you find yourself facing a Bad Omen, be especially careful not to walk into a village
  • If you do walk into a village...good luck
