16w05b[1] is the fifty-third snapshot for 1.9, and was released to fix issues with the previous snapshots.

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • In the bottom left corner in the main menu and the top left of the F3 debug screen, the version type is now displayed after the version number. Example: “16w05b/snapshot”.
  • Chat box is slightly higher than before.
  • Explosion damage increased to (impact×impact+impact)×7×power+1 (was (impact×impact+impact)×4.5×power+1 since 16w02a).
  • Armor reduction in effective defense points due to attack strength will now allow the effective defense to go as low as 20% of the armor points (was 25% since 16w02a).
  • Attack cooldown effect increased: now quadratic 20%–100% (was linear 50%–100% since 16w02a).
