Snapshot for




12w08a is the eighth snapshot released for 1.2.1.

Additions[edit | edit source]

  • Iron Golems
  • Controls
    • Added camera controls (These were accidentally added. Jeb noted them as "deadmau5 camera" controls and will likely be removed again in an upcoming snapshot)[2][3]
      • Pressing F6 causes the player to get "stuck" to the camera until F6 is pressed again. This allows players to appear to phase into blocks.
      • Pressing F9 causes the camera to freeze in its position, allowing to see the player model rotating in third person view.
      • Scrolling the mouse wheel (which also scrolls the inventory) rotates the forward, left, right, and back directions
      • Pressing Y, H, U, O, I, K, J, L, N and M change the camera positioning in a variety of ways. While pressing two functionally connected keys at the same time (example: Y + H) will revert that view back to normal (but U + O doesn't work).

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Stairs
    • Can now be placed upside-down when placed against the bottom of a block
  • Language Files
    • Removed some Canadian English stereotypes
      • Multiplayer no longer says "Go camping with your buddies, eh?"
  • World generation
    • Lava ponds and flat stone areas generate on the surface more frequently
  • Redstone Torches
    • Can now be placed on the top of glass
