[!!] [SP] [Su] Linux Rarely, breaking a block in survival will cause the game (and the computer) to freeze, requiring a reboot. The first time this happened, my save file was unaffected, but the second time I had level corruption. (Speaking of which, if anyone can give me a hand with recovering a corrupt save file in this snapshot, that would be appreciated.) I am running LWJGL 2.8.3, am using an ATI mobile graphics card, and am using FGLRX graphics drivers.--GamerNSC 05:42, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Is their a crash report in your .minecraft directory that you can post? Also, since you're on linux, you should be able to run your minecraft.jar from the command line next time and watch out for errors being printed to the console. I'm a bit surprised that you need to reboot your computer. AFAIK java programs shouldn't be able to interfere with the system like that. i.e. if the java program crashes, you can always retrieve focus of your window manager. In linux's case check out this guide --Mattrition 09:38, 7 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I'm experiencing the same, and it is not that rare. Everytime i place a torch and then i try to remove it (by clicking on the left button of the mouse), the game crashes. This happened to me also when i tryied to remove planted saplings and lilipads. One of these crashes: --Fotomik 12:14, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

[!!] [SP] Windows Minecraft randomly frezzes up (closed using task manager so no crash report, even in .minecraft), Started minecraft, clicked singleplayer( creative, cheats, bonus, seed 12w22a ), loaded world, started flying, stopped flying, stayed in mid-air, opened inventory, tried to click on a item, then noticed that nothing will move, cpu 31%. Chunks were still generating. Java 6. Lwjgl same as 1.2.5. Win 7 64 bit windows 32 bit java. Offline mode. Minecraft5025 11:44, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

  • this might be the same problem i have probaly the reload and creating chunks Darkmtbg2 11:48, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
  • This is not a useful bug report. Can you at least post a crash report from a freeze or provide more details? The report will be removed otherwise. --Mattrition 12:06, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I think it like the one i submitted it could be a mermory leak by reloading/creating the chunks Darkmtbg2 13:41, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I have the same problem since I downloaded 12w22a. With 1.2.5 this is not a problem, but every time I go onto a world, about 5 minutes go by and my client stops responding even though I can still hear sounds, and my mouse pops up when I go to the inventory or pause screens. This is not the same problem as the below report, because I'm on a high-end gaming computer which is more than qualified to run a server. --Stoneforged 9:29, 6 June 2012

[!] [SP] Since the single player server update (12w18a ahead) single player is unplayable at low-end computers (32-bit processors and less than 2 GB of RAM which would be playable at 20 fps in previous versions). I'm able to play for at most 10 minutes before world stops responding. --Manuelschi 21:33, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

  • This could be related to the bug above. --Mattrition 10:52, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
  • No, this is due having a computer not powerful enough to host a server. --Manuelschi 17:58, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
  • No, this is due having low-end computer to run client AND server running simultaneously 21:26, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
  • This is due to you having a low end computer and using a pre release version of the game which may not have optimized coding. This is not a bug in that there is anything wrong with the game it is more of an annoyance for lower end computers.

[!] [SP] [?] Map changes are not saved when you quit --Isle 16:58, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

  • This clearly doesn't happen all the time because it hasn't happened to me yet. Anyone else had this? --Mattrition 12:11, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Not on my world map, no. Haven't experimented with the map item yet. Would the original poster mind clarifying which was meant? -- 15:32, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Oh I see. I immediately thought it meant world changes, but the term map is not really used in that context. --Mattrition 16:09, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • So I crafted a map, had a little walk around with it for a bit and then quit the world. On relog and viewing the map it had to reload its picture again but the changes were saved. Not sure what the behaviour was before. Did maps always have to reload their picture after quitting? --Mattrition 16:16, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I ment world changes. if you explore out somewhere and then quit right away the new parts will be missing if you look at it with an eternal world viewer. it also causes the player to spawn in nothing when you come back. --Isle 19:14, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I recognized that sometimes destroyed Farmland turns back to farmland by itself. --Kranseier 15:53, 5 June 2012 (UTC)kranseier

[!] [Su] Melon stalks will crash the game when destroyed, seems to be true of unattached and attached melon stalks (as of 12w23a) at all growth stages. --BradoBunny 12:04, 7 June 2012 (UTC)



[F] [!!] AWT on SMP error regardless of nogui flag. Takes about five minutes to happen, then the server becomes unresponsive.

  • Note, prior to 12w16a, SMP worked fine on the same platform. --Inertia
  • Thanks, fixed. /jeb_

[F] [!!] Minecraft crashes with "Internal Server Error" when attempting to destroy an Ender Crystal with an exploding bed. When relogged, the crystal is gone and the bed is dropped as an item. A similar situation occurs with TNT. It explodes then locks up the world. Upon relogging the crystal is gone.

  • Can you post a crash report if you can find one? --Mattrition 10:52, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

[F] [!] A bug occurs that causes Minecraft to use up more memory - might be a memory leak. Evidence: [1]

  • Can confirm. Allocated memory doesnt decrease while switching worlds. --Manuelschi 19:00, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes there was a memory leak. Fixed it, I hope! /jeb_

[F] [X] Keybinding for reloading chunks ("F") activates even if "F" is bound to another key. --Logician 02:49, 1 June 2012 (UTC) (Edited for conciseness by author.)

  • (Merged Duplicate) The world is re-rendered every time inventory is opened. --Txtsd 12:35, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Is your inventory key 'F' by any chance? - Mustek 12:48, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes, that would explain it, except Fog Distance was remapped to F3+F, so it's still a bug. This doesn't happen in 1.2.5 --Txtsd 12:56, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • It's confirmed as a bug by Jeb in this tweet. -- Mustek 13:09, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] Lapis Lazuli gives XP along with dyes



[!] Superflat is still a slime hell: slimes spawn in huge numbers, stopping other hostile mobs from appearing. The only workaround is changing difficulty to peaceful, but this is not possible if you're testing hostile mob behaviour or in hardcore. Lvxferre 21:49, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

  • An easy way to fix that would be to change to ground level in superflat to 64. Or add options how the world should generate (height, blocktype). --Panda4994 14:32, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Anything above y=40 would do the trick, but I think this fix would annoy the ones who like superflat for huge buildings. IMHO, the "cleanest" solutions would be reduce slime chunks to 1/100 instead 1/10 OR their max spawning height from y=40 to y=4 when in Superflat. Lvxferre 22:19, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Or make max slime amount lower than max monster amount. - 08:29, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Experience seems not to follow the old patern, you need as much XP orbs for level 40 to go to level 41 as for level 0 to level 1.

  • This is possibly intentional, seeing as they are overhauling the system anyway --Mattrition 13:35, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Using TNT-Cannons or entering the end from a self placed portal sometimes kicks the player with the message "You moved too quickly :( (Hacking?)". It can even happen to OPs or in single player. You can get kicked from your single player world! There should at least be an option to turn it off in the

[X] If you are flying when you go into the end portal, you get disconnected from the server with the message "You moved too quickly :( (Hacking?)".--Flapjacksmike 21:08, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

  • This has carried over from previous versions. MarioLuigi2010 18:34, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] You can't use an item with right-click if you are looking directly at a mob.

  • Also, you can't eat when looking directly at an animal (tested with bread and cows). That is odd since cows don't eat bread. 15:18, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Changed the bug report to be more general. I can't use a bow when looking at animals, so I think you generally can't use items when looking directly at them. --Mattrition 16:54, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
  • This happens in creative mode, too. --Thebombzen 00:27, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
Chunk error while respawning in Minecraft snapshot week 22.
Chunk error while respawning on Minecraft 12w22a

[X] After dying, when you respawn you'll see chunk errors for some seconds and then respawn as expected. --Mkbu95 00:09, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] When aiming a bow about a block's height above a small or medium slime, the arrow will drop to the ground, causing no damage to the slime. --Flapjacksmike 16:20, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

  • This is very reproducible if you aim your bow about a block above a small or medium slime. The charge on the bow makes no difference to the reproducibility. Updating the report to reflect this. Also, I'm not certain, but I think the issue might be purely graphical. I have managed to hit a slime a few more blocks away by reproducing this with a closer one. --Mattrition 17:46, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Rain doesn't put out fires, at least the fires from thunder that was noticed in an extreme hills biome. --MtDRelapse 3:02, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

  • This is interesting, because rain doesn't make any sound or produce particles when it meets ground in this biome (bugs are mentioned further down the page). It seems like the rain seems to just pass straight through. --Mattrition 14:11, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] If you get disconnected from the server while entering the end, you will spawn in the void when you re-enter the world. (This can occur, for example, when you fly into the end portal) --Flapjacksmike 21:11, 31 May 2012 (UCT)

  • This has carried over from previous versions. You spawn in the same coordinates you were at in the overworld, instead of on the obsidian blocks. MarioLuigi2010 18:34, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] [?] Every time I fire an arrow, it appears in mid-air, drops to the ground and sticks there, but then it suddenly moves to where I shot at. I have noticed this in a superflat, creative world. -- 16:11, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

  • I was not able to reproduce this, however, it has happened to me before. MarioLuigi2010 18:34, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Has it happened on this particular snapshot to you? --Mattrition 10:48, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] When opening an iron door with a button to go through it, if you are not fast enough you "glitch" in to the wall. The deathscreen says in german "Playername wurde lebendig begraben" - i dont know what it says in english - maybe "buried alive". --Kranseier 20:10, 3 June 2012 (UTC)kranseier

[X] According to the enchantment info at the bottom of the enchanting page,, it is impossible to get Sharpness V on anything but a gold sword, and with a gold sword it has a 0.2% chance of happening. Same goes for efficiency V. I think this is a bug. Thebombzen 22:59, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Doesn't sound like a bug to me. It means you need to use a relatively useless tool to gain a very impressive enchantment. Just a quirk of the system and no more than an annoyance to some people. --Mattrition 13:59, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] [MP] When in SMP, using the 3x3 loop of powered rails doesn't work well for me. I gain no momentum beyond the speed limit and so the minecart travels only about 50 blocks. SSP is without problem. 07:59, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Minecarts can never travel above 8m/s. I think you may mean that the loop doesn't help the cart accumulate extra momentum to travel at the top speed for longer. Are you also saying that, using the same world with the same loop setup, the minecart travels further in SSP than when you set the world save up for SMP? --Mattrition 09:19, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] [Cr] You don't need levels to enchant in Creative, but if you have levels it will still spend them anyway.

[X] [SP] When moving fast around in a world i get lag spikes every time it need to load chunks and creating new chunks I think its a major bug. bringing my fps down to 0 for 4-8 seconds --Darkmtbg2 11:39, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

  • This might be the memory leak that has been fixed (see Fixed/Skipped in #Crashing/System section). Otherwise, are you playing on a low-end system? --Mattrition 12:11, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Normally i get around 30-40 Fps on a world with normal biome 100+ fps flatworld Darkmtbg2 12:56, 6 June 2012 (UTC)


[A!] Trading is sometimes underpowered. Buying 3 glowstone with 1 emerald just doesn't sound right. Calinou - talk × contribs » 11:53, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Are these Glowstone blocks or Glowstone dust ? Missingno 26 13:19, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Blocks
  • So I don't think it's underpowered, I think it's overpowered ! Missingno 26 15:25, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Overpowered?!?! Are you serious? 3 glowstone blocks are almost nothing, it's much better to take a minimal risk and mine them in the Nether. Calinou - talk × contribs » 19:40, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Well, I think it's just the fact of being able to get Glowstone without risking you life in the Nether that annoy me ... Missingno 26 19:55, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Actually, glowstone is one of the most valuable thing in most servers. Just after diamonds. 1 Emerald, however, IS nothing at all.
  • Glowstone isn't that risky to mine in the Nether... use dirt/cobble pillars; it doesn't have much value (not much possible uses, like gold). However, emeralds are rare and cost a lot of resources sometimes. Calinou - talk × contribs » 09:59, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Glowstone are tricky to get and not so frequent, they are very useful and Emerald are not even supposed to be mined, the ores are here for little extra, 1 emerald = 3 glowstones IS overpower. I don't know what you are talking about and everyone seems to be with me on that.
  • Falling into the lava would cost you the whole world in hardcore or ban in multi. Minecraft5025 21:16, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Apart from glowstone, trading is still unbalanced. Another example: They sell one emerald for 4 diamonds, whereas they sell 3 loaf of bread for one emerald. -- 10:32, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • This unbalance could be entirely intentional. As Jeb said in the snapshot post 'they're cheap b**tards'.

[A!] Mining coal gives a seemingly disproportionate amount of EXP as opposed to, for example, mining diamond or emerald. This, the size of normal coal veins, and their frequency to generate leads to extreme amounts of level gains in very little time.

  • Certainly it is a feature, because I often ignore coal ores when I don't need them. Seems to be a way to make mining more attractive. By the way, you also get EXP for putting out smelted items from your oven. Even though I admit you are right: coal ores spawn too many EXP. Sorry for my English -- 05:12, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes, this was clearly intended, so its more if an annoyance than a bug. --Mattrition 11:01, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Ender dragon gives over 1200 levels upon death. Which means over 40 max levels enchantments, equivalent to 5 full sets of armor and tools. WAY overpowered for what it takes to defeat the dragon.

[A] After generating a world with normal or large biomes, with the chest and cheats on, seeds stop being generated, and walking off makes you fall into the void. Instead of dying in the void, you fall for eternity. The only way to make more chunks generate is to change the render distance. Not tested in multiplayer.

  • That is because SP is now a server. If you have a slow computer, say, under 2-3GB of RAM, you will experience things like this. Just exit your world and go back, or if that doesn't work, restart Minecraft. MarioLuigi2010 18:49, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Sometimes the game in singleplayer game is very laggy. I wasn't able to shoot arrows from a bow and blocks I'd break reappear, this only happened to me once while I was playing a custom map. dalolman - Punch trees, get wood 00:00, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

  • This is mostly because the game IS a (laggy) server now; even in single player! I experienced those things also, especially while fighting mobs where timing is critical, but also with other items and interactions (fishing for example). This was much more worse before on servers (server- and client-side), but not in single player because before single player was not based on a local server like now. I expect they will fix this until the next major release since it is much better as it was before in multiplayer already.
  • This isn't a bug report. It's more of a complaint about lag. Downgrading to annoyance, because its true that, really, a singleplayer local server shouldn't produce notable lag at all. --Mattrition 11:36, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Ghast fireballs can turn nether portals off, trapping players in the nether if they didn't bring a flint and steel with them. --Thebombzen 19:03, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

  • I think that's intended behavior in the fact that you can get out, by putting all of your items in your chest and dying. Plus, ghasts can reactivate your portal if the fire from the fireball gets in the frame. Next time though, bring a flint ant steel! :) Justcool393 22:11, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
  • A few things. One, this behavior doesn't exist in Minecraft 1.2.5. That's why I think it's a bug. Two, it shouldn't be intended that the only way out is dying. I have 193 levels that I don't want to lose. I also don't happen to have a chest or an ender chest on me. Third, the ghast that deactivated the portal flew off. I don't want to sit around while waiting for a ghast to come back, because sitting around is boring. --Thebombzen 22:55, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I agree with Justcool393, perhaps it was a bug in 1.2.5 that it didn't work all the time but it certainly worked that way in previous versions. Go Ghast hunting and get one to relight your portal. Unless anyone else thinks it is a bug, I vote to remove. -- Lucifer_LLS 02:17, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • This is a behavior and have been there since the Nether have been added. Also, it should works in 1.2.5 and I would not change it.
  • Downgraded to an annoyance due to consensus opinion. I agree that this is actually the normal behaviour for Minecraft. The abnormal behaviour was when fireballs could not disable the portal. But lets not remove it because it is clearly annoying for some. --Mattrition 10:41, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Worth noting is that Ghast fireballs also relight the portal if you can manage to get them to hit it a second time. Still, there are limited ways to fix the situation if you run out of flint and steel. --King Starscream 01:20, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Trading for diamond tools/diamonds is a bit too overpowered. I'd suggest making the villagers only sell gold and iron tools. Stone and wood isn't something to waste emeralds on.. - KrisEike

  • It is fine in my opinion, it should stay, maybe diamond tools should be a tad more expensive. Calinou - talk × contribs » 20:00, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

[A] When trading a diamond sword with a villager you'll get an enchanted version. When putting this enchanted version back in the trading slot and adding the emeralds required, you can trade. However you'll get the same sword back, but you'll lose your emeralds. --Roenmane

[A] Enchanting is way too overpowered, giving Fortune 3 + 2 more enchantments when spending 30 levels. - KrisEike

  • Moving discussion to talk page. Significant gripes include:
  • 'Underpowered'
  • 'Overpowered'
  • '[Still] too random'
  • 'Loss of previously available high level enchantments'
  • 'Too easy to farm XP levels, given that XP farms are generally geared up for the old 50-level system'

[A] Only 15 Bookshelves are needed to get the max level of 30. This should be changed in line with max level to keep it at 30 bookshelves -hghgnghd

  • Seeing as how bookshelves now cost three lether, too (one for each book), I think the total cost to set up a full enchantment table is good. It gives the player a lot more control over how you want to place them. With 30 bookshelves you hardly have anything to work with. 30 would be fine though, if the radius was increased. 11:05, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I think the number of bookshelves for the max level should be the same as before (30 as stated by hghgnghd), but a bigger radius isn't a bad idea, tho.

[A] It seems that getting almost four levels for a stack of items smelted is too much. It's fine for iron or gold (sort of), but you can get a stack of clay extremely easily with about two clay deposits. Maybe this should be changed so more valuable smeltables give more experience and easy to get smeltables give less (e.g. gold and iron give more than sand and clay). Thebombzen 22:59, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Its hard to swim upwards while drowning in water there arent source block probaly because of the knock back you get by drowing Darkmtbg2 14:36, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

  • This isn't a bug. It's been that way since drowning was added to the game. MarioLuigi2010 18:49, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
  • This is right, but it should be fixed (or changed to look more natural).
  • no but still the knockback on drowning has always been overpowered (IMO) On servers Darkmtbg2 08:47, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] XP Orbs are quite useless now that pretty much everything gives XP. Couldn't Xp just be directly given to the player killing a mob or mining ores? Orbs just happens to be everywhere.

  • I'm not sure you should put this in the Known Bugs Section, but you are kind of right. I would directly gives Experience to the player doing some EXP giving actions and only keep EXP Orbs droping on players' death.
  • I think XP Orbs should stay, at least from mob kill. It make designing XP grinders a little more challenging, since you need to manage a way for the XP to get to you. It make mob hunting more challenging to, since you have to go get your XP when you land a bow kill. Directly dividing the XP of the Ender Dragon among all players in the End would be nice, though. 18:42, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I'm with you in the way It was OK when Ores and Smelting didn't give XP Orbs. But it would make more sense to give the XP to the player that killed the mob (Or ultimately to give XP to everyone that damaged the said mob, but it's likely never gonna happen).
  • I think EXP Orbs should only be dropped when players dies.
  • (Merged duplicate) Getting XP from ores etc. is annoying because of the colorful particles and the "bling" sounds. These effects are okay for killing mobs but don't make much sense for destroying ore. It also destroys the atmosphere of a dark, silent, creepy cave etc. if it constantly makes these sounds and generates these colorful particles. Perhaps you should just get XP without spawning these orbs. -- JonHa97 06:19, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Getting XP from Coal Ore is unbalanced. Deposits of coal are common and usually large and the amount of XP you can expect from a single deposit of coal is really high. Similary, as Iron deposits are common in caverns, Getting XP by smelting iron is also unbalanced. These are even more unbalanced if you consider that maximal level enchantment is now 30 instead of 50. That's why I suggest applying this XP drop feature only on Rare Ores (Emeralds, Diamonds, Lapis-Lazuli and Redstone and smelted Gold). Missingno 26 14:13, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

  • I disagree. I think it's a great idea that all of these actions drop XP, however they may drop too much XP. Perhaps the amount of XP dropped per event should be lowered, and, if not already, scaled by the rarity of each resource, i.e. coal drops very little xp while diamond drops a greater amount.
  • Well ... I guess if Coal dropped 1 XP and Iron dropped 2 XP then it would be OK.
  • Are you kidding? Should be more like a 1 in 10 chance of dropping experience. I found myself jump 10 levels from just two pockets of coal. Top tier enchantments should be something you need to save for.

[A] Compasses don't point to the last respawn point. That renders the compass quite useless when playing a longer time on a map. --Kumasasa 20:47, 6 June 2012 (UTC)


[F] [!!] After some minutes of gameplay, any spawned mobs will freeze, entities like minecarts and boats will disappear, i am unable to fire arrows or throw potions, breaked blocks will not be dropped as a resource, i cannot use or open chests, workbenches, ect., priming TNT will make the block disappear, and mobs will no longer spawn. In general, entities are erased from the game.

  • It happened with me when I've put Ender Crystal on fire with enchanted bow. After world reload, entities have unfrozen. --IntKecsk 09:46, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
  • P.S. there also was a crash report, appearing to be related to this error:

[F] [!] I cannot skip the end credits after leaving The End and the credits never stop, even after quitting the game and restarting I'm still at the credits rendering the game totally unplayable - G8ball1511

  • This is consistent. Happens for every world
  • Temporarily switching back to an earlier snapshot got me past the credits. Unfortunately, any snapshot-specific blocks are deleted and have to be placed again after reloading the newer snapshot. - David Lones 18:26, 4 June 2012 (UTC)



[!] Strange behavior for placing/removing water blocks, but only in some locations - found this in my world, which was created back in Minecraft beta. Noticed this in 12w21b, still exists here. Copy of my world: [2] (1) Go into the wheat field and use a water bucket to place a water block atop the half-block at x-25,z=24; bucket empties, no water visible, but right-clicking with the bucket in that spot retrieves the water. Placing the water on a half-block further down the field works as expected. (2) Placing the water on a wheat block near that first location appears to replace the wheat with water, but it doesn't flow; on retrieving the water block, the wheat reappears. (3) Try removing/placing water in the pook at x=23, z=13, aiming first at the half-blocks in the bottom of the pool and then at the sides of the pool. --TheSHAD0W 12:46 01 Jun 2012 MDT

  • Is this in single or multiplayer? It might be the spawn protection causing this. -- Mustek 01:24, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

[!] There seems to be cases in which dirt blocks will be loaded as stone blocks. Found the error in an extreme hills biome. The blocks had the stone texture as well as its durability, but when broken dropped dirt instead. Reloading minecraft caused the blocks to load properly.

[X] When placing a wire from a tripwire on the ground and placing another one ontop of that one and removing the bottom one, you have a flying tripwire. When placing a block under it, the tripwire wire drops itself.

  • See this screenshot: [3] - Mustek 12:42, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

  • This might happen if to close to the spawn chunk i came across that too Darkmtbg2 09:29, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Maybe. I noticed that this problem only happens when I play in single player. When I tried a sign on my server (it's running this version too) the sign worked fine. Although I will note that I don't think I'm anywhere near the spawn chunk.
  • I can confirm that it isn't only near the spawn chunk, I am quite far away as I am in a Stronghold and I was trying to do a storage system and I managed to write on 4 signs, but then when I tried to do more they wouldn't show any text.

[A] The huge mushroom blocks are not in Creative. It would be possible to include every damage value variant of those blocks. TorchicBlaziken 23:38, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] The hitbox for placed string is very large. It should be scaled down to fit the actual size of the item, similar to fences.

  • It's intentionally large to help you build from the sides of it. It scales down to the real size when the wire is hooked up in both sides. If it always used that normal hitbox, it'd be extremely frustrating to build with. Dinnerbone 11:26, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Vertically, yes, it does scale down, but in my opinion, it should also scale down horizontally. One is able to set off the tripwire by occupying the same block even if the actual wire isn't stepped on. The large horizontal size also makes it harder to jump over.
  • It actually doesn't scale down as shown in this screenshot. [4] - Mustek 12:40, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

[A] When scooping up water/lava with stacked buckets and a full hotbar, the filled bucket goes into inventory and the stacked ones stay in the hotbar. It is rather annoying when you need the liquid immediately after scooping it up.

  • But VERY convenient if you want to get 16 water buckets very fast. It act just like bottles.
  • But EXTREMELY annoying if you have full inventory - full bucket pops out from your hands directly into lava...--Mp0011 09:26, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
  • What do you want to happen when you scoop up lava with a stack of bucket and full inventory? Either nothing happen, either the filled bucket pops out, or the rest of the stack pops out. I think you should be unable to scoop up lava with a full inventory. 19:01, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I think, you just should not be able to put stacked buckets (or bowls, or bottles) to hotbar (you can still keep stacks in inventory). However, I know it is usefull to fill them fast... --Mp0011 00:11, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] [SP] Items can be duped due to an exploit in world saving. Steps to reproduce: drop an item or stack, press ESC to force save, go back to the main menu, join the world you were playing, pick up the item, and then press ALT+F4 (Windows) or any combination to force close the application. Go back to your world and you'll have a item on your inventory and the same item dropped. This exploit works for 1.2.x. A possible fix could involve handling unexpected closing. This only works in SP. Sorry if this not fit in this list. --Mkbu95 23:59, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] When stacks of eggs or snowballs are thrown, the number only depletes on the second throw if you are not focussing on a particular block (i.e. you looking at something too far away for block placement and no blocks are highlighted). The number depletes correctly if you focus on a block close to you. i.e. I'm holding six eggs and when I throw one in the air it says I still have 6. When I throw another and it goes to 4. Thebombzen 23:31, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Yes, I was playing single player with the latest un-modded snapshot, I was digging down into a cave, found a stream of water bordered by lava. I got killed by a skeleton knocking me into the lava and I was unable to reach the water in time, when I died my armor fell on the ground there as you see it. When I respawned, I was unable to pick it up, I tried digging below it, letting it fall, walking into it from underneath and overhead. I noticed that it was odd that I could actually place blocks and make it pop up, but if I placed blocks next to it, then on top of it, the iron helmet would stay embedded in the blocks, not pop up like it should.--Verifex 19:59, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • I see this with saplings too. They also sometimes spring up and down as the leaf blocks above them randomly decay, and you can usually pick them all by by the time the last leaf block from a harvested tree has disappeared, but it's the same issue as described above. Is it possible that entities that happen to land exactly on a block edge are the ones with this problem? --Simons Mith 16:19, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Seen this behavior with saplings, and noticed that destroying leaf blocks above would "free" the floating items after a short delay. I'm theorizing that this behavior occurs when the location of the item is different in the server than in the client; the client displays the item in one location, while the server won't allow it to be picked up because it's too far away from the user. Occasional synchronization needed?--TheSHAD0W 13:38, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I see this in multiplayer in 1.2.5 occasionally. I think it's because the new single player is also multiplayer.

I was in a (approx.) 3x2 room, standing directly in front of a chest, and I was tossing spawn eggs out of my inventory to make picking them up faster (I was in creative). I could see them around the inventory screen. First they were on the ground, then the jumped up on top of the chest, then they went in my inventory. (They might have been different eggs between the ground ones and the chest ones, but another example: I broke a block behind a ladder, and the ladder landed on the other side of a glass pane. I replaced the block, and went to pick up the ladder through the glass [which, to my approval, mojang made nearly impossible, but not the point], and as I watched, it jumped around the platform outside the window. [Also, I did somehow pick the ladder up in the end]). -irunor, 04:07, 7 June 2012 (UTC)


Redstone Logic


[!] Sometimes redstone torches will burn out until a game/server restart. It seems like itf get caused by the "/time set" command.

  • I can confirm this, it seems that if a torch burns out, you'd have to move the torch to occupy a different block for it to not just stay off when the torch is toggled off. Even then, the torch seems to burn out again after being toggled a few times, with the bug again occurring, even if it would normally work and not be burned out. This bug will stay even on reloading the world, and you have to quit the game completely and relaunch it for the bug to disappear. However, I do recall using /time set at least once, so it could possibly be related to that function, which effects may carry over upon reload. This would be classified as a major bug, for it breaks all redstone circuitry. I'll try to get more accurate details of this issue when I investigate this more. Any proper help or further analysis would be greatly appreciated! --Wormy14 07:14, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Confirmed with both test build and 1.2.5, also seems to happen throughout all tested versions so far. Occurs when redstone torch or repeater is on, and either chunk deloads or use of /time set command. Also occurs with /time add. The only current way to fix is to restart server/SP entirely by either exit/restart or by having a complete reload of that world (all players leaving it for the nether, for example). -- 06:57, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Repeaters still get stuck. when flying away so a chunk gets unloaded, and then returning to that chunk will result in the repeaters being frozen.

[X] Redstone torches can burn out randomly and will continue burning out even when you replace it. Reloading will fix the issue. Tried reproducing it but I haven't been able to since it happened once.

  • Occurs after using /time set - after 15 switches the torch burns out, regardless of triggering method or ticks between switches. 4C51 05:45, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Redstone circuits become unreliable over a certain distance. For example in 1.2.5 the max distance was 280 blocks, now its 150 blocks. I have a city on my server and this bug has caused rail way switching systems to stop working. It would be even better if the circuit distance could be expanded beyond 280 blocks, not halved. --crisss994

  • ok this has been moved to the fixed/skipped section, it better be fixed because this bug is annoying me. whats the point of a update if its gonna screw my world ffs
  • The point of an update is to add a bunch of awesome new features. The reason the redstone doesn't work for you is because nobody is in the chunks of your server. Redstone doesn't travel into unloaded chunks and so your redstone won't update if no player is in the chunk. If 1 person is standing at the end and 1 at the beginning the redstone will probably travel the whole way.
  • I love new updates but when they cause my world to malfunction something ive been working on for a long time its frustrating. your right they work when others are near the other end though it worked way longer distances before this snapshot without others on the other end, its been halved now.
  • Is it at all possible to make a redstone circuit load a chunk it runs into? This limitation would prevent some of the huge redstone computers from functioning as well as other interesting builds - Lucifer_LLS 02:30, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Yeah I've found this issue quite annoying also, the would be a good solution if possible Lucifer, never really had this problem previously unless I've made some rediculously long wire using repeaters.---
  • (Merged duplicate) Redstone circuitry travels through less chunks as it did before in 1.2.5. At first I thought it was my system but I tried it on another computer and the same thing happened with this weeks snapshot. -- 01:41, 7 June 2012 (UTC) ImbooRobsta


[A] Sending a 1-tick pulse to a sticky piston results in unreliable behaviour. The block attached to the piston will randomly disappear and reappear.

World Generator


[!] As with prior snapshots, there are massive chunk errors in the generated maps; especially in "large biomes" mode. Those mostly are quickly found already near to the spawn point and often cross through the whole biome with another one with a flat border as typically for this. (Vanilla with snapshot-JAR only.) Before last final (1.2.5) these are not seen at any time for me (of course, there was no "large biomes" mode back then and this means in "normal" mode for that case).

[X] Pyramids can generate in jungles. Screenshot (Seed: divinecomedy)

  • The same thing happened in a plains biome: Screenshot Seed: -1105909183526117424
  • Another seed where this occurs is the helloworld seed. --Thebombzen 01:28, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Doesn't render the game unplayable though, does it? Hence downgrading to Minor Bug. -- 17:57, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] When a river is created within a desert biome and rain or a thunderstorm starts, it will rain above the river only wich looks really strange. This is because it will never rain in desert biomes (as far as i know) and the river is another type of biome/area wich may have rain. However, all other aspects of weather effects, besides the rain (like dark skies and monsters spawning), apply also to the desert.

[X] Just like abandoned mineshafts were before the floors were implemented, strongholds generate weirdly when they cross a ravine. The seed -623160645725253637 is a good example of this with a stronghold in a hole close to spawn which crosses an underground ravine. TorchicBlaziken 22:00, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] Ever since Minecraft 1.1, surface strongholds can no longer generate because the part that goes above ground is deleted. I think this is a bug because a surface stronghold was featured in Jeb_'s first screenshot of strongholds which leads me to believe that surface strongholds are an intentional feature of the game that was accidentally removed.

[X] There is no Bonus Chest in some worlds (seed, for example: JUNGLEHUNT). You only loot the items. Click

[X] (In SSP) A desert well that was generated incompletely caused damage when I approached it (specifically, when I was in the spaces where the missing blocks would be). When I placed sand sand in the spots that caused damage, they turned into sandstone & sandstone slabs (whatever was missing). Also, in the desert there were a lot of "floating" sand blocks. EDIT: It seems as if some stacks of cactus are "invisible"; that might have been what caused the damage.

4. f3 coordinates of place where you entered
5.tripwire trail
1. How does that help?
2. No they don't. Surely, they are all more or less "snakes" filled with air, but they have different widths and they intersect themselves and they may be connected to lava lakes etc. so they often look very interesting. Not saying that stronghold and mineshaft aren't sometimes interesting. My main complaint is just that they are too huge.
3. Maps map not underground. Sure you can get a general direction where the exit is, but as stronghold ond mineshafts are often multiple layers that doesn't really help, unless you want to dig out manually.
4. Only a debug feature. Not really intended gameplay.
5. Quite expensive and also difficult too see.
6. They work, but as I said, these structures are sometimes very huge, so you would need hundreds of signs and a lot of time to discover everything. Small secret chunks of prebuild structure would be IMHO more amazing to find than huge undergound mazes.

[A] In contrast to "natural" caves, ravines often look very similar to each other and often make the surface look ugly by causing huge open cracks everywhere. I think they could have been improved by generating them in more variable sizes and shapes (smaller for example). Also surface ravines should look more like they are affected by rain, erosion etc. so they should be smoother, filled with water or dirt and not as deep and steep as they currently are. -- JonHa97 16:17, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

  • This is an opinion and I personnally like how Ravines looks.

[A] Seems like Ocean biome is generated too frequently, and spreads around huge areas (I've moved around to about -2500 on the Z axis with only ocean below me, tested on multiplayer and singleplayer) --RonAsor 01:09, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Ocean should be slightly smaller, but not as tiny as lakes.

[A] After leaving the area, a chunk by my house keeps resetting to the original blocks of the seed. This has happened twice now.




[X] Pigs still use the old method for item drops which means they only drop 0-2 meat. Cows and chickens use the new method which allows them to always drop at least one meat. This oversight has caused the pig to decline in usefulness since beef was added. TorchicBlaziken 22:54, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Mobs, including the player, can breathe under lava. TorchicBlaziken 20:41, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

  • I think it have been like that for ages, not only this version.-- Sks0315
  • I am aware of this. It is a very old oversight that has existed for as long as lava has and it is surprising that it still has not been fixed yet. TorchicBlaziken 20:59, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Someone said it was so ghasts wouldn't drown in lava since they can fly through it. Make it so everything runs out of breath in lava but make ghasts skip breath check entirely or have a higher breath stat / permanent potion effect. Obviously, a pain in the rear to the devs though -- Lucifer_LLS 02:39, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] [?] Villagers (and perhaps other mobs) take a few seconds to become visible upon loading the world.

  • and you can't wait for like 5 seconds before playing? is it really that big a deal? or does it cost you valuable gaming time?
  • It doesn't matter. A bug is a bug, no matter how much of a problem it is. It might not annoy you, but it could really irritate him. --Thebombzen 00:39, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I actually can't reproduce this behaviour. The mobs always load at the same time as the world for me, no matter the mode or map type. --Mattrition 15:59, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] If you hit a wolf and there is another wolf next to it, they will both start to attack then after about 2 secs the wolf you hit will stop attacking but the other one will continue to attack

[X] [SP] It is possible that, when loading a world, a mob may load before any blocks and fall a metre or two, causing them to be stuck underground where they will suffocate unless you dig them out fast enough. (Only observed happening to villagers.)

[X] Some mobs may fall through blocks and turn black when being pushed off of something.

[X] Villagers no longer reproduce and seem to ignore buildings.

  • I can confirm this in Single Player. -- Thebombzen 15:06, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
  • confirmed, also iron gollems don't spawn, even in villages with more then 20 villagers
  • I also confirm that iron golems don't spawn. -- Thebombzen 17:02, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Villagers can be right clicked on after killing them while their body remains, and the trade interface will remain open and usable.

[X] Slimes' hitboxes are smaller or out-of-place. This is specially perceptible with the large slimes - you need to be too near to hit them with a sword. Lvxferre 22:39, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

  • I can confirm this with magma cubes (lava slimes). --Thebombzen 14:18, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] When the player leaves a chunk, causing its unload, and comes close enough to that chunk to reload it, any wolves in that chunk will instantly teleport to the player, even if they were sitting when the player left. Observed on SSP, not tested in SMP. --GamerNSC 08:53, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

  • This causes the sitting wolves/dogs to no longer sit, meaning they teleport to you and start following. Really annoying if you have a lot of wolves, and then out of nowhere you have a horde of wolves following you. -- 17:34, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Cats (not sure about wolves) will just stand up if you have them sitting somewhere for a long time. Happens randomly, from what I've noticed. This is on a SMP server. Problems occur as I have them placed strategically to ward off creepers. --Keithicus420 07:10, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Does this happen when you are away from the cat? The report above suggests that this happens to wolves when a chunk is unloaded when you leave it. --Mattrition 09:42, 7 June 2012 (UTC)


[A!] The arrangement of blocks required to create a Golem does not include air surrounding the Golem, or something for the Golem to stand on. Buildings made of blocks of snow and iron can be griefed by players, or worse, Endermen, simply by placing pumpkins on them. If it is an Iron Golem that is unintentionally created, then this results in a big waste of iron.

[A] [MP] since sm and mp have merged. sp mobs had the same lag as multiplayer mobs. mojang has made that smoother so they walk normal again. but multiplayer mob movement is still very lagy. even if your server is localhosted and you're the only one online.

  • Lag is not a bug. So I'm classifying this as annoyance for now.
  • (Merged duplicate) squid movement is very laggy, the way they move, the way their arms move. in single and multiplayer.

[A] Snow Men head are not correctly oriented. Video [5] Ezekielelin

[A] Most of the Mobs which deal food (Pigs, Cows, Chickens etc.) do not spawn much on some biomes. (since 1.8 animals do not spawn in an already loaded chunk). This makes dealing with hunger be harder.

  • I think this is intended and should not be changed for realism purposes.
  • Animals do still spawn in generated chunks but the spawning is at a much lower rate. See Animal Spawning --Mattrition 14:26, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Mobs seem to glitch through fences more often than previously. Appears to be just graphical but they can be outside their pen for a significant length of time before jumping back in.

  • is this on SMP or SSP?
  • My friends and I noted this in our SMP server we were running, though it got more severe when mobs began to not only phase through graphically, but completely phase through fences.
  • I've seen this with chickens, cows, and villagers in SSP. Thebombzen 23:22, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Iron golems will happily walk through/over cacti without worrying about the fact that they are getting hurt. This wasn't such a problem before, but it can become pretty significant in desert villages.

  • I can confirm this. Other mobs too, I've watched a spider stand on one until it died. --Keithicus420 19:26, 4 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Spiders have stood on cacti for a long time. (I saw it in 1.0.0 and before) --Thebombzen 21:04, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] My NPC villagers duplicated(2 NPC villagers with the same trades), and then they all disappeared.

  • Same happened to me.

[A] Villagers don't understand double-doors, and will leave one side open.--TheSHAD0W 18:16, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Animals spin on cocoa pods as well as fences now.

[A] Mobs (haven't seen it with all mobs, but most) can phase through solid blocks. They may or may not also turn darker while in a block, I don't remember. Nothing causes it as far as I can tell, but when I see a mob, it's usually in a block until another mob or I push it. -irunor 03:52, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] When you are around 65 blocks away from a chest it will be invisible (only tested on singleplayer). --Swekob 2 June 2012

  • I tested this in a superflat creative world by placing a bunch of blocks in a row. At about 64-65 blocks away signs and chests appear to be unloaded from view. I'm not sure if there is anything else, or what the pattern appears to be. --Mattrition 11:08, 5 June 2012 (UTC)
  • This started happening once they made chests an entity. The same should happen with signs and paintings. -- Mustek 18:00, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Torches at the top of a 1x1 vertical shaft are still bugged. TorchicBlaziken 20:36, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] While chunks are generated (especially when loading a world), rendering sometimes "misses" some spots and leaves them in a "seethrough" kind (inwisible); often it is necessary to walk near theam or inside them to make them appear. Technically they exist because entities (like animals) can be seen on/in them, walking "in the air". This was only a problem with lighting before (and for many past final versions of the game already also). This behaves the same way but affects terrain this time.

[X] Slabs still have faulty lighting when placed upside down under blocks. Example. This has been a bug since they were implemented. - Mustek 12:46, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] [SP] When going from a used world to another world(w/ an empty first slot inventory), if you have something in your hand (active slot from the used world) it will show up for a split second then disappear (when loading the other world). For example, Survival-Diamond Sword (current active slot) -> loading a (empty first slot in inventory) hardcore world -> Hardcore - Diamond Sword (appears then disappears from player's hand, not visible in inventory slot) --Flapjacksmike 16:05, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

  • This has been present for several versions, possibly back in Beta or earlier. It shows the past item for one frame since it's already been rendered and the game is spending time loading chunks. The bug is more apparent in slower computers. 21:15, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
    • I've seen it since Beta 1.6, a while now. -RyanDolan123

[A] [SP] When creating any type of world (survival, creative or hardcore), the game holds to the brown dirt screen for a while then flashes up the main menu screen just before showing the newly created world. --Flapjacksmike 15:48, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

  • This also happens when loading an existing world --Marioman66 10:12, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] The grown pumpkin/melon stalk appear to have part of the half-grown pumpkin/melon texture overlapping it.

[A] Lighting on a snow layer when there is a block immediately above it looks unnatural, and unlike regular blocks. Screenshot

[A] Foliage and grass colors no longer have a smooth transition based on temperature and rainfall, but instead are colored by biome. See First image was from 1.0.0 and has smooth transitions, and the grass stays quite green several blocks into the desert biome. Second image is from 12w22a and transitions are quite abrupt and the tall grass has absolutely no color smoothing between biomes. BFeely 13:51, 3 June 2012 (UTC)


[F] [X] The magma cube's jumping animation is missing.

[F] [X] When there is a thunderstorm the sky does not darken.

[F] [X] When rain/snow starts, then no starting animation is done. For reference, in 1.2.x single player downfall starts by slowly fading in. The same applies when weather stops.



[!] There is no sound for lava, fire or running water.

[X] [?] thunder/lightning sound doesn't play, regardless of the biome(in my case plains). You see the flickering and the lightning but no sound

  • This seems to conflict with the bug below, where the thunder sound still plays after thunder has stopped... --Mattrition 09:46, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] noteblock sounds don't play when only 5 blocks away.

  • Just tried to do this, noteblocks stop working when they're 16 blocks away, not 5. -- Mustek 19:14, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
  • What about the level you're on compared to noteblocks? That might make a significant difference. --Mattrition 20:30, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] Nether portal sounds don't play - neither do the sounds you're supposed to hear when near a portal nor the sounds when the loading screen is on.

[X] TNT explosions can not be heard out of a 16-block range

[X] Ambediance or cave sounds can play while the game is paused -- Thebombzen 17:14, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

In-Game interfaces/HUD


[!] After typing 19 characters in a line in a book, a Section Sign (§) appears at the end of the line, and the next line starts flashing 0 and 7 instead of the cursor. Example gif --Txtsd 08:44, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Same for me when creating a cover. Very annoying.

[X] macOS Whenever opening a book an quill to write something, the GUI is not there. All there is is the page number at the top and and a gray page with the word 'MISSING' on it. You can still type on it and turn the page, but the arrow icon is not there, making it difficult to write in books. However, it is still possible. Tested on a Powermac G5 and an iMac. Tested on SMP only. This only happens on 32-bit computers. Book and quills work fine on 64-bit computers.

[X] When trading with the priest villager, it will ask for weapons/armor to enchant. You can place already enchanted weapons/armor into the initial slot even if it's the same enchantment that you get from the trade. I don't think this is intended behavior. --Shikamaru123 14:25, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] If you leave items in the second slot while trading you lose them after you closed the menu (finished trading).

[X] You can right-click items in the trade output slot to receive only half of them, you will lose the rest then.

[X] If you interact with a villager while holding a usable item, it will use the item. This can be problematic when you are holding a bow.

[X] When shift-clicking crafting output into your inventory, it is only checked if there is space for one of its kind. Crafting recipes that give multiple items, like torches, will be partially lost when the inventory can't take all of them.

[X] [Cr] Im not sure if this is intentional, or a bug, but in creative, if you use the mini crafting table and close the menu with items still inside, it will drop the original quantity of items, eg if you were breaking down a 2 emerald blocks, and you broke one, leaving one in your crafting slot, closing the menu will drop 2 blocks. This does not work in survival mode, and its not game breaking in anyway, just inconsistent. --Alphasite 09:36, 2 June 2012 (UTC) (I need to make an account).

[X] [Cr] when in creative mode, sticky pistons (maybe normal as well) when in the hotbar will have there arm flicker in a way so that sometimes you can see it and sometimes you cant. It is a very fast flickering and this might just be coincidental but it seems that it happens most near anything redstone (on or off). -2mak07

  • I observed similar flickering for slabs and stairs in my inventory in Survival. Almost seems like slabs jumping up in their boxes. -jenceslav

[A] [Cr] Survival inventory in creative is EXTREMELY buggy. E.G.: Shift-clicking and then dragging out of the inventory screen and dropping. Once you have a full toolbar, and it starts to fill up your survival inventory, the items filling up replace the items in the actual inventory (even the amounts) until you refresh your inventory. Also, the items don't appear in your survival inventory tab, but if you click a tile entity (E.G. a chest), they appear in the inventory there. -irunor 00:34, 7 June 2012 (UTC)


[A] Book and Quill - Can't insert blank spaces into book. Doesn't seem to be a way to indent text. Hitting Enter does not create a new line if there is no text on the current one. Can't indent text by pressing the tab button or spacebar.

  • Current workaround: paste "§r" before attempting to indent, and also before hitting enter on blank lines. This is the reset formatting code, and will not show up in the text. Other formatting codes can also be used for this purpose. --WolfieMario 23:17, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

[A] I liked the way how you could search without beign in the search item tab, now to search you need to enter the search item tab

  • Pressing <chat key> whilst in the creative inventory will put you in the search box, it was a bigger annoyance when it launched on every key typed. - Mustek 12:20, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

[A] Shift-clicking does not work in the villager trading UI.

[A] While in adventure mode (if you have cheats, type "/gamemode 2"), you can still pick up items which cannot be placed. Since you can't place blocks, you shouldn't really be able to pick up those items. For example, creeper explosion leaves a pile of dirt blocks and the items are picked up, but are not placeable. --Flapjacksmike 19:19, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

  • You can still craft though, so blocks that can be crafted into items (wood, cobblestone, etc.) should still be picked up. Besides, you can just throw the unusable blocks out again if you want. 21:20, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • Adventure mode involves not placing any block, so certain types of crafting is worthless as certain items (wool, glowstone etc) cannot be placed anyways, unless it is a combat item or one which assists the player with a particular function not involving breaking and placing blocks.(Made an edit in response to redstonehelper's comment below)--Flapjacksmike 14:22, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Suggested Exceptions to the Can't Place Or Remove Blocks rule in Adventure Mode in 12w22a: (Note: This is a complete rewrite of the original comment thread struck out below. Dsmith77 03:06, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

  • TNT and Cake should NOT be placeable. Players could pillar over obstacles.
  • Lava and Water from buckets should NOT be placeable. Players could climb up the flows like an elevator (doing so in lava would only require a Fire Resistance potion). Use pistons or dispensers to control water and lava flows instead.
  • Shears should be able to cut tripwires. Vines should not be destroyed by shears. Vine-Growth should probably be turned off to prevent unintended access to areas from climbing. Vines also should NOT be placeable to prevent unintended access.
  • Food-Management will be a necessity unless Hunger is turned off. Therefore, players should be allowed to collect Wheat (allowed in 12w22a) and Watermelon Slices (disallowed). Furthermore, Farmland-Trampling should be disabled and players should be allowed to replant farmland with Wheat or Watermelon seeds. (Pumpkin seeds and Sugarcane too?)
  • Flint and Steel should be allowed to set fires. (Should fire burn wool? wood? Maybe Fire-Spreading should be turned off.)
  • Swords should be able to break cobwebs.
  • Fishing Rods should be allowed to catch fish (allowed in 12w22a).
  • I've moved the struck-out portion to the discussion page, as it was not only ugly, but no longer relevant. CaMoreno3 09:56, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] When I open a furnace when playing in 1080p (I don't know if it happens at other resolutions), the tooltip text for the item name in the top middle slot of the inventory appears, so I open a furnace after I go mining and I immediately see the cobblestone tooltip text. I think this is slightly annoying, especially because the mouse is on the very edge of the block it's over. Thebombzen 23:29, 3 June 2012 (UTC)




[!] Using "/time set" can sometimes cause redstone torches to get stuck in the off state. Even destroying and replacing the torches don't help. It seems like the only way to fix it is to restart the game/server.

[X] [MP] /say followed by a one-letter word is considered invalid usage of the command, but only if the one-letter word is the first word in the message. For example, "/say I love you" causes the error, but "/say I'm a banana" does not.


[A] When typing the "/kill" Command in Creative, you will get the message:"Player fell out of the World"

  • I think this is another of the joke translations, making fun of the often deadly Australian wildlife ect. As British/American English modes are good enough for us Australians, it should be considered a feature and left as it is.
  • Yes, this was my point. I wonder whether the australian language was created solely for a joke translation. However, if these translations were just down to one guy who also preyed on the Italian translation (which clearly should be a serious language) then maybe not.

  • Most is fixed, but there are I think two string with Australian slangs and I don't know if it should be kept that way. --mkbu95 04:22, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

[X] The Hebrew language from Israel is labelled (IL) אנגלית. However, in Hebrew that word actually means "English." It should say (IL) עברית, which means "Hebrew" in Hebrew. -- Thebombzen 15:25, 4 June 2012 (UTC)


[A] Slabs crafted from cobblestone are called "Cobblestone Slabs", but stairs crafted from cobblestone are called "Stone Stairs".

  • Is this from the US English language files or another language type? --Flapjacksmike 19:44, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • True. But isn't this on purpose? -- mkbu95 21:23, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
  • I'm pretty sure they didn't use two different words for the same block (CobbleStone) on purpose.
  • I thought that because sometime ago Diamond was named Emerald on source code `-`. However you have a point, and this should be taken to the staff IMO mkbu95 16:55, 1 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Diamond is called Emerald in the source code because it was called Emerald in indev.

[A] In Canadian English, Emerald Ore is called "Emerald Ore Eh?"

  • Done by the same guy who did the above translations. -- Mustek 14:24, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Please don't use the [F] tag, this is only for mojang to use. -- Mustek 10:29, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
  • I am Canadian, and I find this kind of funny. Maybe there should be a language called "Canadian, Eh?" along with proper Canadian English. It isn't the first time the Canadian language files got greifed, after all.--Marioman66 10:39, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] Some languages such as pirate speak or French from France (labelled Français (français)) have text which is shrunk and appears to be something like Arial Narrow rather than Arial Bold. This is not really a problem except the current experience level is rendered misaligned with its frame, so the black border is rendered for normal text but the green numbers are rendered in narrow.

  • I think it's the file encoding. Try to modify it to UTF-8 (without BOM) and see if it changes. --Mkbu95 23:42, 5 June 2012 (UTC)

[A] When clicking on Candandian French, it says "Les tranductions peuvent ne pas être précises à 100%" but the "ne" should go before the "peuvent" because the grammatical error sounds very weird. -- Thebombzen 15:28, 4 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Not actually a grammatical error, just a very unusual formulation. Actually it's quite frequent in formal or rustic French.
  • You are totally wrong... The translation: "Les tranductions peuvent ne pas être précises à 100%" Is Perfect and should not be changed. Else, it would sounds like it CAN'T be a good translation. However, it should be spelled "Les Traductions" and not "Les Tranductions".
  • Whatever, you all are the experts. I'm not fluent in french, but I've had it for three years.
