13w05a is the seventh snapshot released for 1.5.
- Fully implemented multiple snow heights
- Drops one snowball for every layer of snow
- Each level of snow has its own height collision
- The topmost layer of snow does not have collision, so the player is always slightly sunken in the snow
- Visually, four layers of snow is the same height as a slab. However, five layers of snow has the same collision height as a slab
- Crafting recipe is 3 snow blocks in a row to create 6 snow layers
- For each thin layer of snow crafted, the player loses exactly half the snowballs required to produce it
- Improved the scoreboard system
- Added team mechanics including custom name colors, friendly fire options and objective tracking per team instead of per player
- Added a new display type – Displays value below nametags
- Added a new criteria type – health, ranging from 0 to 20
- Increased beacon range
- Effects are infinite upwards with the beam.
- 1 layer: 41 blocks diameter (previously 33)
- 2 layers: 61 blocks (previously 49)
- 3 layers: 81 blocks (previously 65)
- 4 layers: 101 blocks (previously 81)
- Improved Stairs
- Improved lighting
- Stairs no longer prevent sprinting
- Rebalanced bonemeal
- Everything now usually takes 2–3 uses to fully grow, but it's random
- Now uses the 8s bit on block 149 to represent its powered state, rather than a separate block ID, 150. Block 150 is deprecated.
