16w33a is the third snapshot released for Java Edition 1.11.[1]


  • "Should not be played while driving"
  • "You're going too fast!"


  • Will now keep enchantments and durability when crafted with banners
  • Some of elder guardians' and zombie villagers' subtitles are now distinct from the subtitles for guardians and zombies.
  • More things will burn in the furnace
  • If the player clicks on the bed, but is not right beside it, it now shows a message:
    • "You may not rest now, the bed is too far away"
    • Previously the player would get no message, but would be unable to sleep.
Farmer villagers
  • Now sells 5–7 apples, where before they sold 5
  • Now sells 6–10 cookies, where before they sold 6
Elder guardians
  • Now drop a wet sponge rather than a dry sponge
  • Now require a dye when applying a pattern that uses a non-dye item, such as a creeper head or enchanted golden apple
    • Previously the lack of a dye would have applied the black variant of the pattern.
