Minecraft Snapshot 18w50a

A Village & Pillage Java Snapshot

It's that time of year again... You know the one, it happens every year in December and brings a tear to everybody's eye... That's right, it's the last major snapshot of the year!

Todays snapshot brings us a lot of cool Village related features, and we're happy to finally get these out to you all before the year's up. We weren't able to finish everything we wanted, however, so we'll see you again soon in January with even more Village & Pillage features to help test!

Have a great new year, everybody!
