Snapshot for




13w01b is the second snapshot for 1.5, and was released to fix some of the bugs and crashes in the 13w01a snapshot.


  • You can now shift-click rails onto Hoppers to empty Chest Minecarts
  • All containers output a redstone signal when a Comparator is placed against it directly. The strength of it depends on how full the container is.[2]
    • This works with Trapped Chests as well, meaning it can provide two redstone signals with different causes at the same time.
  • Locked Chests texture changed with an addition redstone block.
