Minecraft Snapshot 20w12a

A Minecraft Java Snapshot

Ever wanted to take a quick nap in a biome full of lava and with dangers lurking around every corner? Good news! We've just added the Respawn Anchor that lets you set your spawn point in the Nether. Just make sure that you have enough charges.

New Features in 20w12a

  • Added the respawn anchor that can set your respawn point in the Nether. Use while holding Glowstone to charge to a maximum of four charges - each respawn depletes one charge
  • Added polished basalt! Smelt your basalt to make it clean and shiny!
  • Warped and crimson nylium can now be bonemealed to get more of the strange new vegetation
  • Hoes are now the appropriate tool for sponges and wet sponges

Changes in 20w12a

  • When fishing, treasure loot can now only be obtained by fishing in open waters
  • Reduced the maximum distance a bee can wander away from its home hive when randomly wandering to around 22 blocks
  • Nether gold ore can now be mined with any type of pickaxe and drops a few gold nuggets
  • Parrots imitate hostile mobs less often
  • Parrots do not randomly imitate hostile mobs when gamemode is on peaceful
  • New mood detection algorithm for cave sounds

Technical Changes in 20w12a

  • The spawnpoint command now supports being run in any dimension


UUIDs stored in NBT are now represented as an array of four integers.

Example: {UUID:[I;1498693494,1027158888,1898994005,860320107]}

Along with that a couple of fields have been renamed:

  • OwnerUUID of tamed animals, area effect clouds, evoker fangs and projectiles is now simply Owner
  • TrustedUUIDs of foxes is now Trusted
  • target_uuid of conduits is now Target

Loot Tables

Entity Predicate

  • Added fishing_hook sub-predicate

Fishing Hook

  • Check properties of the fishing hook


  • in_open_water - Matches whether the fishing location is open water fishing or not. A fishing location is considered to be open water if there are no blocks above water and no solid underwater blocks around, all water blocks are source blocks and there are no bubble columns.
