Minecraft Snapshot 22w18a

A Minecraft Java Snapshot

Another snapshot is now available for Minecraft: Java Edition. This snapshot brings a few gameplay changes and some technical tidbits, such as the place command and cryptographically signed chat commands.


Changes in 22w18a

  • Allays now follow their liked player even if they can’t see them
  • Allays will only lose track of a player if they are more than 64 blocks away
  • The texture of the sonic boom particle has been updated
  • Vibration listeners such as Sculk Sensors, Sculk Shriekers and Wardens now listen to the closest vibration instead of the first vibration in the tick

Technical Changes in 22w18a

  • Banner patterns available in the Loom can now be controlled with tags (banner_pattern/no_item_required for no pattern item and banner_pattern/pattern_item/* for specific banner pattern items)
  • Servers can now define different chat style formats for clients
  • Removed the placefeature command
  • Added the place command
  • The bundled Java runtime has been upgraded to 17.0.3
  • Removed loot table function set_goat_horn_sound
  • Added loot table function set_instrument
  • Chat from the /say/msg/teammsg, and /me commands are now all also cryptographically signed

Chat Types

  • Different chat style formats can now be controlled by the server through the chat_type registry
    • These are synchronized to clients when they join the server
    • The translation key or translation format can be defined, like chat.type.text or %s says: "%s"
      • Chat can be similarly optionally narrated with a custom translation key or format
    • The entire message can have formatting applied, such as italics or a specific color (but currently not click or hover events)

Place Command

New command that replaces placefeature and can place features, jigsaws and structures at a given location. Syntax:

place feature <feature> [pos]
place jigsaw <pool> <start> <depth> [pos]
place structure <structure> [pos]

  • feature: The namespaced id of a feature to try to place
  • structure: The namespaced id of a structure to try to generate
  • pool: The namespaced id of a template pool to start generating
  • start: The namespaced id name of a jigsaw to use as the starting anchor
  • depth: The maximum number of jigsaw connections to traverse during placement
  • pos: The position to use as the origin for the generation (if omitted, ~ ~ ~ is used)

Loot Tables

New functions
