Minecraft Snapshot 18w49a

A Village & Pillage Java Snapshot

Another week, another snapshot! Winter is getting closer and it's getting so cold here in Stockholm that my fingers froze and snapped off while I was writing this intro (true story).

Anyway, what better way to get into a festive mood than hanging out in a fancy new village in a snowy biome? If you're not into the whole being cold and wearing thick woollen socks in the horrible outdoors thing, you can always stay inside playing Minecraft and hang out in the new updated savanna villages. If you're hungry, grab some berries! Enjoy!

  • Updated savanna villages
  • Added snowy villages
  • Added Berry Bushes
  • Added Berries

Berries

  • Delicious!

Berry Bushes
