19w14a is the thirty-first snapshot for Java Edition 1.14, released on April 3, 2019,[1] which changes player positioning mechanics, allowing players to crawl in 1-block-tall areas.



Debug screen
  • Now has a new "Sounds" section, listing how many sounds are currently playing near the player out of 247, and streaming sounds (jukeboxes and ingame music) out of 8.
  • Added "It came from space."



  • Now naturally spawn in villages properly instead of only spawning during world generation.
  • Can no longer open doors.
  • Nitwits and jobless villagers now shake their head and grunt if the player tries to trade with them.

World generation[]

Pillager outposts
  • No longer can spawn inside of villages.
  • Can now be toggled in custom-preset superflat worlds via "pillager_outpost".
The Nether


Player positioning
  • The player's position will now adjust to the gap they are within:
    • 1.5 blocks: sneaking posture
    • <1 block: swimming animation
  • Being forced into an area under two blocks high will cause the player to adopt the appropriate posture.
