|minecraft Jeb has released the official snapshot for 12w19a. It comes with new cocoa plants, mysterious large biomes and better naming for sand stone and smooth stone blocks.
With all the Xbox hype going on, most PC players will be pleased to know that Jeb has stayed true to his word. Snapshot 12w19a was released bang on schedule and as usual it comes with new features.
New Features in 12w19a
- Coca Plants in jungle biomes
- Large biomes world type
- Specific names for sandstone and smooth stone blocks
For the first time in Minecraft, cocoa beans will become a renewable source. As you probably know, cocoa is a key ingredient in the cookie recipe so this is going to save us time finding dungeon chests. It can also be used as a dye to make brown wool.
Apart from these features you can expect bug fixes to be included too. Let's hope they fixed those bugs from the buggy 12w18a snapshot the week before!
