Java Edition

Snapshot for



Client (.json)
Server (.exe)

Protocol version


14w26a is the twenty-ninth snapshot released for 1.8. This snapshot is the first after a decision to release snapshots on Wednesdays rather than on Thursdays.[1]

It is strongly advised to make a backup of a world before using this snapshot, because of block-corrupting problems that were not corrected until 14w26c.[1]

A potential means of recovering corrupted worlds using MCEdit was made available by a Reddit user, on this thread.


World generation[]

Debug mode world type
  • Useful for resource pack makers.
  • Hold ⇧ Shift and cycle through "World Type" to select it.
  • Spectator mode recommended to avoid crashes (creative mode can also be used without any effect on some machines).
  • All possible blocks with all possible data values are generated.
    • They are arranged in a grid across height y=70, with a barrier floor at y=60.
  • Blocks placed are deleted, and blocks destroyed are restored.
    • There is a special generator option preventing this. It is called "debug_all_block_states". If the player changes this to "flat" or "default" in NBTexplorer, the player will be able to interact with the world. Only for a short period though, on most machines there will be lots of lag or the game might crash (Not recommended to play survival on).

Command format[]

/replaceitem <entity|block> ...
  • Can replace items in any inventory, including the inventories of mobs such as zombies.
    • Full syntax:
      • /replaceitem entity <entity> <slot> <item> [amount] [data value].
      • /replaceitem block <x> <y> <z> <slot> <item> [amount] [data value].
    • Example: /replaceitem entity @e[type=Zombie] slot.weapon minecraft:iron_sword 1 0 will give all the zombies iron swords.
    • Example: /replaceitem entity @p slot.hotbar.0 minecraft:fish 4 2 will put 4 clownfish in the players first hotbar slot.
    • Example: /replaceitem block ~ ~-1 ~ slot.container.5 minecraft:redstone_block 1 0 will put a redstone block in the 6th slot of a container 1 block beneath the player.
  • sendCommandFeedback
    • If set to false, player-run commands will not show a success message.



  • Switched to only/mostly using blockstates in the code, though not all block combinations are blockstates yet.
Command blocks
  • X/O button next to "Last output" in command block to turn off the last output string.
  • Empty furnaces will now only accept fuel and empty buckets in the fuel slot.
Item frames
  • The wood part of the frame now uses the oak texture rather than the birch texture.
  • Changed model from Attached Stem 14w25a.png to Attached Stem JE2.png

World generation[]

Customized world type

Command format[]

  • Now has a detect argument (sub-command, only works when used with execute).
    • Allows the execute command to run only if a block is detected at a specific location relative to the target.
    • Example: /execute @a ~ ~ ~ detect ~ ~-1 ~ minecraft:grass 0 say You are standing on grass..
  • Block limit changed from 4096 to 32768 blocks.
    • Now has an add argument.
      • Similar to the set argument, but can be used to add (or remove) a certain number of blocks to the world border distance.
      • Negative numbers can be used to remove blocks.
      • Example: /worldborder add -75 will shrink the world border width by 75 blocks.


Block models
  • Instead of specifying uvs, the player can now choose textures to be projected onto the model.
  • Reworked 3D resources, adding the possibility of new blocks with multiple textures.
