19w06a is the twentieth snapshot for Java Edition 1.14, released on February 6, 2019,[1] which adds a new startup screen.



  • Added a new tag for item forms of blocks called BlockStateTag.
    • Formatted as {BlockStateTag:{state:"value",state2:"value2",stateN:"valueN"}}.
    • Does not affect item model.


Startup Screen
  • Added a loading bar to the startup screen.
    • Once loading is complete the startup screen will now fade into the main menu.



Cartography tables
  • Added sounds for the block.


Wandering traders
  • Will now drink potions of Invisibility at night.
    • When day comes, they will drink milk to clear the potion effect.
  • Now have a WanderTarget data tag containing a block position. When set, they will pathfind to that position.

World generation[]

Jungle pyramids
  • Improved village blacksmith building generation to prevent them from catching on fire from lava inside them.
    • Desert blacksmith buildings have been removed.


  • Updated to 3.2.1.
  • Are now broken up into individual textures files per frame rather than being in particles.png.
    • Do not use .mcmeta files for their animation – those are still hard-coded.
  • Slightly improved startup time.
