    HappyDiggers Snapshot Server

    Minecraft Snapshot Howto
    A new snapshot server has been made available. You can use this to test new things before they end up in the release version.The server will get a new snapshot version each week. Each snapshot will get a new world so don't plan on starting large projects on this server.

    You can reach the server at:

    These are the HappyDiggers Snapshot server rules:
    • PVP: allowed
    • Grief: allowed
    • Stealing: allowed
    • Bad language, swearing, cursing: BAN!
    • Asking for OP/mod/TP/items/materials: BAN!

    Snapshot Installation Stuff
    To play on this server you need to install the same snapshot as the server is running. You can see the current version in the MOTD of the snapshot server(more on this below).

    Download MultiMC from
    Extract MultiMC to a directory where it can stay for a while. For example: C:\Games\MultiMC
    Run MultiMC. Select your language if you want. Then choose which Java to use. And set default memory allocation. I recommend setting it to 2048 and 4096 if you have a PC with 8GB of RAM.

    Then choose to enable or disable analytics. They mention this is done anonymously. But in reality, there is no such thing as anonymous analytics. If you combine data from a few sources data brokes know exactly who is who inside of an "anonymous" data set.

    After the first run wizard you'll end up in the main screen of MultiMC. Click on the Add Instance button.

    You will then see the Add new instance window. Here click on the small button with the 3 dots "..." then select which snapshot version you want to use:

    I usually go with the snapshot version as the name which MultiMC enters for you by default.

    Now that your snapshot is ready to go, you can launch this instance. If this is your first time using MultiMC, it will ask you to enter a valid Minecraft account.

    Select Yes to enter an account now.

    Click add, then enter your information.

    Then when you launch the Minecraft instance again, MultiMC will download a bunch of files and launch the Minecraft snapshot for you.

    I made a b00h00 and accidentally deleted the whole thread. So here's to new beginnings :B

    Later this week Minecraft 1.3.2 will be released. In order to get everybody ready Mojang has made 1.3.2 available as a pre-relase. It addresses several issues:

    • Fixed the falling-out-of-Nether bug
    • Fixed the random-suffocation-damage bug
    • Various uncommon crash bugs

    The snapshot server has been updated with the latest and greatest 1.3.2 pre-release. It also has a brand new world so go nuts!

    You can get the client here:

    A new snapshot has been released that brings some new cool features!

    • Added item frames
    • Added cobblestone walls (yes, mossy too)
    • Maps now align to a grid, making it easier to create adjacent maps. Maps can also be cloned
    • Stairs now auto-arrange into corners. This is a test and may change based on feedback
    • Mobs can travel through portals
    • Leather clothes can be dyed
    • Removed the “wip block” from the creative menu
    • Added two new crops and associated items
    • F3+P will toggle the auto-pause when the window loses focus (it’s for debugging, mainly)
    • F3+H will toggle detailed item descriptions (also for debugging)
    • Added arrow-sensitive wooden buttons
    • Trapdoors can be placed in top-most position (based on cross-hair aim)

    I'm curious to see how the mobs going through teleporters work. Maybe now we can finally get some more ghats in the overworld

    The Snapshot Server has been updated with this snapshot, and you can download the client here:

    • Changed recipes for buttons
    • Minor armor gfx changes

    The server has been updated with the new snapshot and is ready to go.

    Also, the new features they're putting are really cool. I can't wait to see the new mob in action.
    Check this out:

    It's not in the game yet, right now it has to be hacked in. But, wow, that's awesome!

    Last week I didn't update the snapshot server due to being on vacation and not having enough wifi to do anything useful.

    Today the snapshot server has been updated to 12w37a. You can download the client here:

    There have been a lot of cool changes since the last snapshot:

    • Tweaks to the Wither. He continues to be refined - this time, with a bit of nasty self-defense.
    • Carrots are now carrot, and added new food item.
    • Tweaks to a couple of item sprites. Specifically, Bread, Raw Chicken, Cooked Chicken, Raw Beef, Steak, Raw Porkchop, Cooked Porkchop, Red Apple, and Nether Star no longer have a dark outline. Golden Carrot now matches the carrot, and heads are centered properly.
    • Leather armor now has a non-dyed layer.
    • Superflat customization options. It now comes with 7 presets: Classic Flat, Tunnelers' Dream, Water World, Overworld, Snowy Kingdom, Bottomless Pit, and Desert. Also, Custom starts off with Classic Flat with three options: Add Layer, Edit Layer, Remove Layer. Adding and editing are NYI.
    • Pigs are now able to jump when players ride on them.
    • Added /clear command to empty the inventory.
    • Evil mobs are now a little bit more fearless in hard difficulty.
    • And more bug fixes.


    • A new scary decoration block.
    • The “secret” from previous snapshots is now spawnable.
    • A new mob variant in the Nether.
    • Minor changes to the leather dye (the colors will attempt to maintain intensity, and not dilute as much).
    • The “work in progress block” is now called “Beacon”.
    • Carrot on a stick!
    • And, of course, numerous bug fixes.

    As always the snapshot server has a brand new map for you guys to play on and experiment with
