MINECRAFT SNAPSHOT 18W43C
The First Village & Pillage Java Snapshot
The first snapshot for 1.14 “Village & Pillage” is here, and oh boy, it’s a big one! With new items, new blocks, new mobs, new blocks, new enchantments, new blocks, new mechanics, even more new blocks, new commands, and not to forget all the new blocks – we’re pretty confident there’s something for everyone in this snapshot!
Best of all, this is just the first one! We have so many things coming to future snapshots, most of which you guys don’t even know about yet! Hurray!
However, as always the first snapshot is always the riskiest. We’re rewriting big chunks of the game with hopes of focusing on performance soon, so stability might be a little wonky at first. Please backup before opening your favourite worlds!
We’ve got a huge changelog for this snapshot, which we’re really proud of. If you scroll all the way to the bottom you’ll find instructions on how to play (spoiler: start up your launcher and enable snapshots!)
They call it exotic. Which is just people talk for awesome. Which it is, which is why we’re so happy that we added it to the game.

Pandas come in different variants and personalities! There is a rumour about a brown panda…
Pandas love bamboo… they kinda like cake as well
Pandas can be bred, and the variants are inherited by a special panda inheritance system
Pandas spawn natuarlly in the new bamboo forest biome
Pandas drop bamboo when killed
Most importantly: pandas are cute and terribly silly!
The babies are, in general, even more silly than their parents.
Pillagers are new type of mob added to the game. For now, it can only be spawned with a spawn egg or commands, but they’ll do more things in a later snapshot.
A new type of illager that, well, pillages!
