15w43b is the thirty-fifth snapshot for Java Edition 1.9, which was released to fix an issue with multiplayer from the previous snapshot and to get custom drop tables working, as well as add subtitles.
- Subtitles which display sounds for the hard of hearing/deaf.
- Mobs have individualized subtitles, for example: “Creeper hissing”.
- "<" or ">" points in the direction the sound is coming from.
- No longer shows the flowing animation when directly adjacent to glass.
- Drop chances for raw fish or prismarine crystals changed again.
- Now it's a 50% chance for fish, 33% for crystals, and 16.7% of nothing, with the amount increased by Looting.
- Drops reverted back to 0–2 gunpowder and 0–1 tears, incremented as usual with Looting.
- Drop feet again as a rare drop.
- Meat drop is no longer affected by Looting.
- Drops reverted back to 0–2 arrows and 0–2 bones, incremented as usual with Looting.
- Now drop 0–2 ink sacs (was 1–3), incremented as usual with Looting.
- Coal drop changed to 0–2 coal, incremented as usual with Looting. This is still an increase over 15w42a.
- Bone drop reverted back to 0–2 bones, incremented as usual with Looting.
- Drops reverted back to 0–1 rotten flesh and 0–1 gold nuggets, incremented as usual with Looting.
- Golden apple will now always be present, and will no longer disappear if the chunk is unloaded before the chest is opened.
- Made the basement walls less uniform.
