14w18a is the twentieth snapshot released for Java Edition 1.8.
- Slime blocks will now push and pull blocks adjacent when connected to sticky pistons.
- Connected to normal pistons, slime blocks will only push blocks, but not pull them.
- Coded by KaboPC and Panda4994.
- Up to 12 slime blocks connected to a piston in any arrangement can be moved as long as the following conditions are met: blocks do not disrupt the chain, non-moveable blocks are not in the way or slime blocks are not attached to the piston itself.
- Follows all the rules that pistons follow, for example, blocks which can normally be moved by pistons can be moved if attached to slime blocks.
- Allows for more contraptions, from new redstone clocks, moving devices, farming etc.
- Extending a piston with a slime block on top of it will launch the entity (mobs, players, items, launched arrows etc) into the air.
- Can now be placed on stained glass.
