    • The player needs to be allowed to use /gamemode for this to work.
  • sneakTime
    • Tracks the amount of ticks the player has held the sneak key, regardless if the player was moving.

    • If the world has not been opened in one of the 1.9 snapshots yet, there will be an exclamation mark (!) next to the world's name on the far right that displays text when hovered over: "Don't forget to backup this world before you load it in this snapshot."



Creepers, skeletons, & zombies

    • No longer light the ground on fire.

  • Will now fly back to portal before finishing its death animation.
  • No longer takes damage from snowballs, eggs, or fishing rods.
  • Projectiles no longer follow the player in spectator mode.
