    Minecraft 1.14 snapshot 18w43a village & pillage update

    MINECRAFT SNAPSHOT 18W43A
    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!). Now, without further ado, we present to you... a changelog!

    Fun, challenging advancements!
    New loading mechanics!
    Unique load animation!

    ENCHANTMENTS
    Choose between the following three enchantments for your crossbow:
    MULTISHOT (I)
    Ever wanted to shoot more than one arrow at once? Look no further! With Multishot, your crossbow splits your arrow into 3, shooting the usual arrow straight ahead and two more at angles off to the sides!
    Cannot be combined with Piercing
    PIERCING (I, II, III, IV)
    With this pointy enchantment, arrows shot from your crossbow can travel through mobs, hitting more than one per shot
    The number of mobs that can be damaged by a single arrow is equal to the level of this enchantment + 1
    Cannot be combined with Multishot
    QUICK CHARGE (I, II, III)
    Each level of quick charge decreases the amount of time it takes to fully charge your crossbow by .25 seconds
    LOADING MECHANICS
    To charge the crossbow, hold down the "Use" button
    Once the crossbow string has been pulled all the way back, let go
    Boom! Your crossbow is now loaded and ready to shoot with a single click of the "Use" button

    Be careful of the Wither Rose...don't let its subdued beauty lull you into a false sense of security!

    ILLAGER BEAST
    Ravager? Behemoth? Got a name suggestion? Let us know!

    Fearsome new foe who packs quite a wallop, grab your sword and shield and prepare to get knocked around!

    LOOM
    Bröther, may I have some lööm?

    New and easier way of being able to apply patterns to banners, can still only apply 6 max patterns to a banner
    Generic patterns now only require 1 dye in order to create patterns instead of 1 - 8 (depending on the pattern)
    Special banner patterns (Oxeye Daisy, Creeper Skull, Wither Skeleton Skull, Enchanted Golden Apple) can now be crafted, these patterns don't consume the pattern item when used in the Loom
    Old pattern recipes in the crafting table for apply patterns to banners have been removed

    NEW TEXTURES
    The extraordinary Minecraft Texture Update has been available on minecraft.net for quite a while and now it’s finally available by default in the game

    We’re renovating the old textures of Minecraft and polishing them up for a new beginning.
    We're still interested in feedback
    Playing on Bedrock ? Don't worry! These textures will come to the Marketplace in a near future for you to try out!

    PANDA
    We heed the call!

    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.

    PILLAGER
    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!
    Pillagers wield a new weapon, the crossbow!
    REWRITE OF BOOK & QUILL EDITING
    The pen is mightier than to sword! Unless you're fighting a Pillager...

    Movable cursor for free text editing
    Selection support
    Copy & Paste
    Keyboard and Mouse handling
    Improved page filling and line wrapping
    Increased book length (100 pages)
    SUSPICIOUS STEW
    Hmmmm...

    Found in buried ship treasure chests
    Also craftable!
    Whoever eats this stew will be imbued with an unknown* effect for several seconds!
    *Whoever crafts the stew will know what effect they gave it
