Minecraft Snapshot 18w09a

We’re currently battling winter here in the office, but we managed to sneak out this small snapshot a little later than usual.


  • Added underwater ruins!
  • Added new coral blocks!
  • Phantoms no longer spawn in the end
  • Phantoms despawn in the daytime
  • Optimized particle rendering slightly


We’ve ruined the game. Again.

  • Come in many different shapes and sizes!
  • Cold ruins can be found in cold, frozen, ocean biomes – regardless of depth
  • Warm ruins can be found in warm, lukewarm, and deep lukewarm biomes
  • Can generate alone or in a big ruined village
  • You can also sometimes find them slightly underground or slightly above sealevel
  • They can contain mysterious treasures! So mysterious that we haven’t even added the real treasure yet.
  • A few more things to come in a future snapshot…


Pretty blocks! Or should they be mobs? I’m not entirely sure.

  • Comes in 5 colors: blue, pink, purple, red, yellow
  • Requires water to stay alive
  • If it dies, it dies. Sorry.
  • Currently only obtainable in the creative inventory
  • World generation to come in a future snapshot…


  • MC-118324 – One of magenta dye recipes is unlocked via getting Ink Sac
  • MC-118416 – Recipe for bowl not unlocked until bowl or mushrooms are obtained
  • MC-126111 – Furnaces don’t award recipes or experience when output is taken after a reload
  • MC-126150 – Furnaces don’t account for multiple recipes with the same output when giving experience and smelting recipes


To install the snapshot, open up the Minecraft Launcher and enable snapshots in the “Launch Options” tab.

Snapshots can corrupt your world, please backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.
