12w08a is the eighth and the final snapshot for Java Edition 1.2.1, released on February 23, 2012,[1] which adds the iron golem and debug camera controls.

Additions[edit]

Mobs[edit]

Iron Golem Revision 1.png Iron golems
  • New utility mob.
  • Occasionally spawns in large villages as a defense.
  • Can also be spawned by arranging 4 iron blocks and a pumpkin.

General[edit]

Controls
  • Added camera controls.
    • These were accidentally added. Jeb noted them as "deadmau5 camera" controls and would 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 the camera may be reset (example: Y + H) will revert that view back to normal, but U + O will not).

Changes[edit]

Blocks[edit]

Redstone torches
  • Can now be placed on the top of glass.
Stairs
  • Will now be placed upside-down when placed against the bottom of a block.

World generation[edit]

General
  • Lava ponds and flat stone areas now generate on the surface more frequently.

General[edit]

Languages
  • Removed some Canadian English stereotypes.

Fixes[edit]

1 bug fixed
