Command format[edit]

/blockdata
  • Can amend and modify the NBT data of the block at specified coordinates.
/difficulty
  • Can be used to change the difficulty.
Target selectors
  • Added @e
  • Can select entities.
  • Can specify type of entity by entity ID to either include or exclude with [type=Chicken] or [type=!Skeleton].
    • Example: /kill @e[r=50,type=Chicken].

General[edit]

NBT tags
  • Added an NBT tag that can lock containers.
    • Mostly useful for (adventure) maps in adventure mode.
  • NBT Tag in JSON format: {Lock:Key}, containers can be unlocked by clearing their string for Lock (changing it to {Lock:}).
  • The lock can be cleared with the command /blockdata.
  • Locked containers can only be opened while holding an item renamed to the given string.
    • Example: If the value of the Lock tag is "Key" ({Lock:Key}), a player will not be able to open the chest unless they are holding an item named Key.
    • Item is not removed on use.
    • Only works if the item has a custom name (default names will not work).
      • Example: a chest with the tag {Lock:Diamond} cannot be opened when holding a diamond; the item held must be renamed Diamond.
Splashes
  • Added "That's Numberwang!"

Changes[edit]

Blocks[edit]

Anvils
  • The cost of experience is now reduced.
    • Renaming items will now only cost 1 level, repairing will now start out with 2 to 5 levels and tools can be repaired longer and with better enchantments, repairing costs can no longer be kept down by renaming items.
Furnaces
  • When a furnace runs out of fuel, the smelting progress will pause instead of resetting.
Iron doors, Wooden doors
  • Doors can now stack to 64.
  • Crafting recipe now gives 3 doors.

Items[edit]

Baked potatoes
  • Baked Potatoes restore 5 hunger points instead of 6.
    • Will be changed in a later snapshot.[1]
Carrots
  • Will restore 3 hunger points instead of 4.
    • Will be changed in a later snapshot.

Mobs[edit]

Baby Animals (sheep, pig, cow, chicken, cat, dog, horse)
  • All baby animal growth can now slowly be accelerated using the animal's breeding item.
  • Baby animals make particles when right-clicked with the proper food.
    • It appears holding the right mouse button speeds up the growth-acceleration process.
  • They will randomly grow up instantly.
Villagers
  • Will now only breed when willing.
    • The first time a specific trade is done, the villager will become willing, any other time there's a 1 in 5 chance the villager will become willing.
  • When a baby villager is born, both parents lose their willingness.
    • Finding out a villager's willingness in survival is difficult: The only way to tell is the amount of XP they give when trading; Normal trading yields 3-6 experience points, trading and making a villager willing yields 8-11 experience points.

Non-mob entities[edit]

Boats
  • Now break (into sticks and wooden planks) when landing on a solid surface after falling more than 3 blocks.

Command format[edit]

/clear
  • Can be used to clear only a specific number of items and can be restricted to certain NBT data.
    • Example: /clear @p 383 120 34 {display:{Name:Michael}} will remove up to 34 villager spawn eggs named Michael from player; Note: Maximum removal item count does not work correctly (fixed in 14w02c).
/kill
  • Now has a target selector argument.
  • Can kill entities (including players) other than the player that ran the command.
  • Can now be used by command blocks.
/testfor
  • Can now also check for dataTags.
    • Example: /testfor @p {foodLevel:20}.
  • No longer is exclusively usable in command blocks.
/tellraw
  • A new tag called "insertion" allows text to be inserted into the chat that, when shift-clicked, will insert more text into the players' chat input.
    • Example: /tellraw @a {text:"CLICK",insertion:"This is a test"}.
Item IDs
  • Changed from using numbers (for example, TNT's id is 46) to minecraft:item_name. (Example: minecraft:tnt).

Gameplay[edit]

Adventure mode
  • Block interaction is now impossible by default.
  • Block outlines do not show unless block can be interacted with.
  • Added CanDestroy NBT tag for tools.
  • Items with this tag display the names of the blocks that they can destroy in the item tooltip.
    • Example: /give @p diamond_shovel 1 0 {CanDestroy:["sand","grass"]} to give a Diamond Shovel that can break grass and sand).
Enchanting
  • Enchanting will now cost 1 to 3 levels of experience and lapis lazuli, depending on the tier.
    • You still need the same minimum levels displayed on the enchantment table to enchant.
