[!!] [MP] Unknown server-stopper. After about 20h running, the dedicated server started consuming all available CPU from a single core, all the allocated RAM (full red bars on graph too) and displayed an average tickrate of 1100 ms, at least 22x slower than normal (50 ms). All players were disconnected with endOfStream and the server repeatedly dumped overloaded warnings on the console. Further debugging is unavailable, will do on next occurrence. a Stop command took around 5 minutes to complete, with a tickrate of 500ms with no players online. After starting it back, everything works fine. Configuration: AthlonIIx2 x64 Win7 2GB DDR2, 1GB allocated, Java 7 update 4. Dedicated machine, average of 2 players online. It has happened three times so far, identical symptoms with variable tickrate lag. One time, the tickrate kept high enough for players not to drop, but low enough for them to yell 'LAG' at me. Survival server, no operators, unmonitored remote machine. --Steve G. Wood 22:30, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

And profiler results. Notice there are no players online at the time of profiling.

[!!] What appears to be a memory leak in the chunk loading portion of the code. Without allocating more memory to Minecraft, Java Platform SE Binory will crash in around 10 minutes of straight traveling, particularly in the nether. Allocating 2 GB to Minecraft, memory usage for java is seen jumping to 800 MB at world load and steadily climbing beyond 1.8 GB and Minecraft showing 700 - 900 MB in debug screen. 1.2.5 version caps off around 1 GB for java and 300 - 450 MB in Minecraft debug screen. This was found with java 7 update 5 64-bit, windows 7 64-bit, 6GB memory, GTX 670 graphics card, i5 650 3.2 GHz, minecraft settings set to fast graphics, no smooth lighting, no clouds, no server textures, all other settings at their default, tested on all render distances without any noticeable difference

[!] In some computers (1.75 GB of RAM, 32-bit, 2.71 GHz, Windows XP SP3, Java 1.6) the world will still not save blocks, but will save player configuration. Example seen here http://imgur.com/a/xixYo#0 (1st and 2nd screenshot taken in a run, the 3rd one is after reloading the world). Here's a debug profile made while placing the blocks, if it helps. --Manuelschi 17:06, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

[!] [MP] Players falling through world and getting socket exception when connecting or going through nether gates. Reverted to 26 and I was fine. Moved back to the spawn (my base is some ways away) and updated to 27 and everything is fine. Went back to my base and re-logged and it happens again. We were able to teleport me to the spawn and I was fine. Had someone else come to my base and re-log and he gets the same exception. I have also experienced this when travelling from the nether to a portal at this base.I have completely re-installed minecraft and java. I started a single player creative on the same seed and went to the coordinates and was able to exit and re-enter. seed: ubik rough coordinates: x = 1473, z = -155 --Neema 00:37, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I can confirm this bug. I'm also getting "Internal Server Error" while in the nether, and getting booted. --SullyTheUnusual 15:58, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  • While I personally have not experienced these "Socket Exceptions" of which you speak, I have experienced falling through unloaded chunks into the Void after using a portal before the game loads the chunks and puts me back in the portal. TorchicBlaziken 23:59, 7 July 2012 (UTC)


[A!] Every time I try to update Minecraft through the launcher it stops at about 5-9% percent downloaded (I've checked the minecraft.jar, only metainf folder was there). -- 22:03, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Are you sure you are using a bought account? This page is not for cracked Minecraft. <MCKMan> 07:23, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Yes I have bought minecraft(I'm lukisforgets in minecraft)and it still won't work.-- 18:31, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • delete the "bin" and "server" directories in your ".minecraft" and have another go --Mattrition 10:26, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
  • no, that didn't work either... -- 16:12, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I have this too, and it is the most annoying thing ever. I tried completely disabling antivirus/firewall and still, nothing happens.
  • I have tried every thing I can think of and still nothing works, I re installed java, restarted my computer, and completely emptied .minecraft and it still won't work, can some one please tell me whats going on here. -- 17:12, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
  • A few steps you can do to ensure likelihood of everything going properly. Make sure Java.exe and Javaw.exe are allowed through your firewall, as well as Minecraft.exe. Go to the web version, make sure you tick Trust, etcetera. If it works on the website, it should work on the exe version once you've gotten those files. If you are still having issues, download LWJGL, and put the appropriate files in your .bin directory. I'm not going to link to it, Google is your friend, yeah? --Debugman18

[A] macOSOther chat key-bindings are incorrect for Mac OS X. Fn+Arrow Key (Home, End, Page Down/Up) should have no effect on the cursor. Ctrl+Left/Right should instead be Opt/Alt+Left/Right, Cmd+Left/Right should equate to Fn+Left/Right and Cmd+A should select all text instead of Ctrl+A. Jrtc27 13:37, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] macOS Still cannot quit Minecraft using the standard shortcut Cmd+Q. You can quit it before logging in through the launcher however. Bug has been present in all versions of Minecraft and ought to be fixed. Mac OS X

[A] When trying to connect to an incompatible minecraft server, such as 1.2.5, I get the very unhelpful error message "Internal exception: java.net.SocketException: Connection reset". It would be nice if there were a more descriptive error message, saying what the server and client versions are, and explaining that they are incompatible. Thue 22:32, 10 July 2012 (UTC)


[F] If you try to spawn a entity that is not a mob via spawner editing i.e. cart or boat the game will crash

--SoaringChris137 21:31, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Spawner egg or mob spawner? Either way, the game is not supposed to give you the chance to do that. It's like trying to use a spawner egg to spawn an item entity, it will crash. Since it cannot be reproduced on vanilla minecraft without 3rd party programs i vote for deletion.--Manuelschi 22:53, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  • It was a spawner block, like you find in dungeons, and because in the previous snapshot the special spawner permissions were added but only accessible through 3rd party editing I don't think this can be overlooked. --SoaringChris137 23:26, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  • This has been fixed, but I really wouldn't call this a critical bug. It's custom behaviour that we've never supported before or had intentions of directly supporting. Dinnerbone 08:16, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

[F] [MP] Every user that logs into my SMP server gets kicked off immediately, with the following message in the console (no crash report recorded on server nor client): --Inertia

  • This may be caused by 'view-distance' in the server.properties file being set above the default value of 10. --Recondite 20:32, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Good call. Indeed, it was the view-distance. I had it set to 15, but taking it back to the default (10) seems to have fixed it. But in the previous build, having it set to 15 seemed fine. --Inertia
  • I have view-distance set to 10 but some players joining my server are still getting kicked out with the reason being disconnect.overflow. I had never seen this error before 12w26a. For me, it is happening in 12w26a and 12w27a while never happening once in 1.2.5. I have not used any snapshots between 1.2.5 and 12w26a so I cannot comment about those. You are mad 16:04, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
I think this problem appears, when a player is on a high position and leaves the server. The player can not join until the player dat file is deleted. --TrustableDigger 19:24, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

[F] macOS CMD-V does not work to paste things into Minecraft. Dinnerbone said he was having trouble with this because he didn't have a Mac. However, Minecraft recognizes the CMD keys as LWIN and RWIN in the controls menu, so enabling the LWIN-V and RWIN-V combinations to paste might do it. CTRL-V does work on a Mac, but it is unintuitive for Mac users. TorchicBlaziken 21:14, 28 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Potentially fixed, need a mac-y person to test it in the office. — Mojang AB logo.png Dinnerbone(T) 08:28, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[F] My SMP server uses 60% CPU when no users are logged in. The 1.2.5 server used 40%. AFAIK, there is no good reason why it should use any amount of CPU when nobody is logged in. My server uses much more electricity than neccesary because of this. Thue 15:50, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I'm running two servers on mac at the same time, getting a 2% CPU usage when noone logged in, it gets up to 50% when I log in from my computer (so, 2 Minecraft Servers + Minecraft Client). I usually got al least 75% usage on previous versions (same 2% when no one logged in). iMac 21.5 late 2010, 8 GB RAM (1 GB assigned to every server, and 2GB assigned to Minecraft client). --Asmcsl 17:03, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I have a relatively old Athlon64 X2 3800+, but still shouldn't be using 40% or 60%. Perhaps you have killed your enderdragon and destroyed your end healers, which seems to be what is using lots of CPU in 1.2.5 (From profiling the partially decompiled 1.2.5 source code from bukkit. A 24x24 are is always loaded in each of the three worlds). Thue 00:29, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Now, after running a good deal of time, it actually seems to have settled down to run at ~6% CPU, which is obviously much better than in 1.2.5. Don't know why. It woul still be nice if it didn't use any CPU when nobody was connected, of course, like fx my apache and sshd servers. Thue 00:34, 8 July 2012 (UTC
  • Running 12w27a on an Arch Linux i3 with 4 gigs of RAM I haven't had any issues with CPU load. Minecraft is using about 3.9% CPU when noone's logged in which is high for a program that's doing nothing, but isn't high for Minecraft. ArcherSeven 05:33, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I decided that it's silly to tick entities when nobody is around to hear them fall. CPU usage should greatly improve now. — Mojang AB logo.png Dinnerbone(T) 09:48, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[F] Using Shift + Up/Down on a LAN world causes Minecraft to crash with an IndexOutOfBounds exception. Jrtc27 13:24, 10 July 2012 (UTC)



[!] Hardcore levels get deleted if you try to skip the end credits. I opened up a hardcore world that I beat in 1.2.5 and went back to the end. When I left, I was presented with the credits again, and hit esc to skip them. The game said that I was disconnected because I died and deleted my world. Ryan392 02:26, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

[!] When creating a map in creative mode via a workbench and shift clicking to your inventory it will always be Map_0, click and dragging works normally though.

[!] NPC Villages will lag my computer down to <1 FPS. I don't know what's causing the problem but this has never happened before and I have to delete my [Player].dat file to respawn and the lag stops. I cannot produce a debug profiling due to major lag. Will list specs if needed. Zmr333 01:58, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Not a crash bug. Downgrading and moving. --Mattrition 15:25, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Unable to reproduce. I tried my personal SSP world with a medium village, and also a Superflat world on Creative with multiple very large villages. I did not lag at all. --Fperson1 05:12, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[!] [MP] Player 1 can push Player 2 around on their screen but Player 2 doesn't move on their screen. Therefore Player 1 can push Player 2 in lava and Player 2 will take unnecessary damage.-- QuAd205 03:00, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I've had this happening too. Seems to glitch with any entity pushing the player. I was shot by a few skeleton arrows and walked around to hit them but saw them firing at a wall while I got hurt. Done using the minecraftserver.exe Lukesoccer21 05:42, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Happens for me too, though I've noticed it seems a bit inconsistent. I've been able to push a friend and when they move, they notice they're suddenly elsewhere as described above, other times I've pushed them, then when they moved they've gone back to where they originally were as if they hadn't been pushed at all. -TheWyo 20:01, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Similar to the bug described above, this issue is very apparent when player 1 is not moving in a boat and player 2 pushes player 1. Player 1's location looks unchanged on his screen but is in actual location on player 2's screen. Player 1's movements are affected by blocks and positioning based on player 2's screen. Location syncing issue is resolved when boat is left.

[!] When water current pushes you into a corner, you start taking damage. Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/uzMEc.png (Note: this screenshot was taken in Peaceful mode.) --Techokami 19:32, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

  • seems related to the "Player 1 can push Player 2" Bug stated above. Something's wrong with the client and server not matching up. Was this done on a server or "singleplayer"? --Lukesoccer21 17:17, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  • It was done in "singleplayer". As long as there are blocks at the head level forming a corner, and a diagonal current pushing the player into said corner, the player takes damage. The game probably thinks the player is inside the blocks and is suffocating. --Techokami 22:16, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  • This occurs from all sources pushing you, IE if a mob pushes you into a corner.BlackDragonIV 16:24, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I can confirm this. Players die very often on my snapshot server from suffocating in walls, and blame each other out of doubt. --Steve G. Wood 12:38, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Happens a lot when villagers are crowded in a room (they do seem to love sharing rooms) and you are pushed into a corner. --5thHorseman 00:24, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • This happens to me all the time in "single" player. It is extraordinarily annoying, to say the least. --Basilo1146 21:52, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

[!] Occasionally your character can seem to "teleport" when fighting a water current. For example, if one is underground mining obsidian whilst fighting a water current, you will appear to be breaking the obsidian (complete with cracking animation and mining sound) and suddenly appear upwards of 7 blocks away, at the end of the water current. Used major bug tag because it is fully possible to be pushed into lava in situations such as the above example, or if working on a mob grinder, or into a corner triggering the above bug. This happens in SSP, not sure about multiplayer. --Fperson1 01:01, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[!] Sometimes, you get random suffocation damage, most times when sprinting. 14:53, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I have seen this when hitting a wall with a sprint-jump... and sprint-jumps in general. --Steve G. Wood 18:32, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Since the newest snapshots, fall damage was reduced by one block, such that falling from 4 blocks won't hurt you. Problem is, very rarely you do take damage from 4 blocks. --Steve G. Wood 18:49, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Logging out and logging back in while falling off a cliff will only make you take the fall damage from the height you logged back in from. It is extremely annoying with fall traps on PvP servers.

[X] [Cr] Crafting something in Creative Mode (I know, why should I...) in the 2x2 crafting field generates the crafted item and drops the old items like they were not used after closing the menu. I made four sticks with two pieces of wooden blanks in this Screenshot. Doesn't occur in Survival Mode. --Freakedenough 18:49, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] With some bed placements, you fall out of the bed instead of sleeping in the bed. See File:Falloutofbed.png to reproduce this. Seems like some part of the game code still thinks the player is standing, so it's trying to prevent him from suffocating by pushing him away in some direction. -- JonHa97 18:44, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Eggs thrown by dispensers will sometimes spawn chickens in a block. The chicken will suffocate and die. Other eggs function normally. ~Cm283 20:21, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I have seen this since 1.2.5 with eggs thrown against a wall (not using a dispenser). ArcherSeven 05:55, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Chests do not update properly. Placing items in them, or taking items out of them may fail. Ex. you shift-click a stack of dirt into a chest, it appears in the chest. If you leave the chest and click the inventory slot the dirt was in, it re-appears in your inventory - it seems, it has never been placed in the chest. Also, the chest closing or opening sound and/or animation may not play. -- 23:23, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] I was playing Survival Mode on Normal difficulty, a skeleton shot me and the arrow just bounced off me without dealing damage. --Conscripta

  • Occured for me too. But not sure, maybe it bounced from some block near, but it bounced, changing its direction. --Kolen 10:56, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Occured for me too. --velvetpro 06:34, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Surrounding a bed with slabs still works when sleeping; you wake up on top of the bed, as expected. However, when dying, the game thinks the "home bed was missing or obstructed". --Steve G. Wood 18:32, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] [SP] When in Survival in singleplayer, if you open the world to LAN with Creative on for the people that join, you can log into the game again in a different client with the game that you opened to LAN unclosed, go into the LAN server, have it kick you because you were logged in twice, and then when you open the world again, even though it still says survival, you are in creative when you enter the world. I found this the other day in the last snapshot, and today I found out that it worked in 12w27a. I'm sure that some other people would not mind this bug, but it does not make me too happy. I have not yet tested if you can also go back from creative to survival. --Agent A 21:29, 11 July 2012 (UTC)


[A!] [SP] (Might happen in MP as well) I commonly have the problem of the keyboard becoming non-responsive while playing. A quick, double alt-tab fixes the problem, but i dont know why. It can happen at any time, when a game is just loading, or after the game has been running for a while; both are equally common.

[A!] [MP] (possibly single player also) When being pushed against a wall by a water current or trying to push through the force

  • I lost health. I have marked this as major as I have already died twice from being stuck in a hole and unable to get out because of the water current causing the health to drop (StormKitten_1) -- 08:39, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[A!] When extending 4 pistons around a lava source block in the middle, all the pistons extend, but one or more also appear to be retracted at the same time. When this happens, the affected piston(s) are frozen in the extended position. Smashing the extended portion seems to reset them. --SullyTheUnusual 14:50, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

[A!] [MP] Every time I Log in or respawn, I will appear to be falling though the world in darkness, Less frequently I will appear with a block (normally stone) right up in my face. This happens for 5 to 20 seconds before I regain full control and can see and interact with the world. While falling I can look around with my mouse freely. I can also type but nothing happens when I send message. Suddenly I will appear in the game in the correct spawn location. All my chat messages will rapidly send in quick section. I have only tested this on one server. It is only played on by me and my friend. He doesn't encounter this bug at all, yet I do every time. He hosts the server at his house which is only a small media server not intended for this kinda use really perhaps, Although when the server was running 1.2.5 and previous versions I encountered no problems like this. The problem doesn't occur for me in single player. --Noac 17:03, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Pushing a minecart with the movement keys makes the camera shake in the direction pressed. -- 00:24, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I can second this, it also causes you to slow down immensely. I can see the benefit of slowing down but the shaking is rather annoying.. Pharap 16:54, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] When you die, and respawn (no beds involved), you are teleported to the highest point of the spawn region. This makes it hard for custom map makers to create indoor maps without players getting out of the map when they die. I don't know how long this has been happening, but I noticed it in 12w26a. -- 16:51, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • This always happened in SMP, so I would be guessing it started with the merge. I'll see if I can reproduce. 04:42, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Portals built above Y=128 in the normal realm do not link up with portals in the nether properly. (Bug that has been around since anvil was implemented in 1.2) Water99 19:49, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

  • One solution that I can think of (without expanding the Nether to use the newly available space) would be to add 2x vertical scaling to the Nether similar to the 8x horizontal scaling already implemented in the game. TorchicBlaziken 23:59, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Birch and Spruce trees will not grow directly beside one another with or without bone meal; however, Oak and Jungle trees will grow. Dotsarecool 08:25, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Thin Jungle trees do not grow next to wide jungle trees. Birch and Spruce trees won't grow next to any other type of tree.

[A] Powered Minecarts only face two directions, so when they turn, the face of the furnace incorrectly turns. This doesn't affect the efficiency of the furnace, just a small overlooked detail I've noticed. --Keithicus420 19:09, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] [Cr] Ender pearls still cannot be tossed in creative.--Marioman66 02:42, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Villagers appear to strongly prefer going down blocks instead of jumping up, so my underground railway traps villagers deep underground, then I smack into them with minecarts. Great sadness ensues. --SwimmingNaked, 10 July 2012

[A!] Mobs spawn on non-natural occuring blocks Djerun 15:21, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Trolling ? Vote for removal -- 15:39, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Not so sure. I mean, it's weird that mobs appear out of nothing in completely enclosed artificial areas. So I guess this is a valid request. On the other hand, this will probably never be fixed because it's just very difficult know which block is natural and which not. I guess you could prevent mobs spawning on artificial blocks like bricks or iron blocks but I'm not sure if this is a good idea. -- JonHa97 17:50, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • But I'm sure that's not a good idea. Imaging that no Skeleton, Creeper and Zombie won't spawn on bricks - life would be quite boring. Yet you are forced to properly illuminate your interior areas to prevent hostile Mobs from spawning. Imagine that you would pave a several hundred meters square around your home base and you never will see any hostile mob anymore. Boring.
    The spawn conditions are quite well how it's implemented now. --Kumasasa 18:02, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • It's very annoying to not be able to have darker rooms without mobs flooding them or a major limitation to what the floor can be. All blocks that don't generate on map creation should be added to the list of non-spawnable blocks rather than storing and using user placement for each individual block Djerun 21:23, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I'm comfortable with slab floors. If you build everything half a block below, it won't even look like slabs and you get mob-free dark areas. And a glass block floor is also a good option that does not change collision. --Steve G. Wood 12:15, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Yeah cause we got Halfslabs of Lapis Blocks, Furnaces, Dispencers, Noteblocks, Wool, Gold Blocks, Iron Blocks, Diamond Blocks, TNT, Bookshelves, Workbenches, Snow Blocks, Netherrack, Soulsand, Netherbrick, Endstone and Turned off Redstone Lamps I can use those to not have creepers in my house where darkness is required for design aspects... Also stuff like Ores should be unspawnable, because when they are the floor of something, there usually is enough spawnable space around, and ores give some nice options when building (same with mushroom blocks). Netherrack, Soulsand, Netherbrick and Endstone may be natural blocks, but not in the overworld.
    For Creepers, Skeletons, Zombies and Spiders the only valid spawning ground should be dark natural overworld blocks (only in the overworld and certain blocks that only occur in villages and places by players should not count as natural like bookshelves) occuring blocks, for zombiepigmen and magma cubes soulsand, netherrack and netherbrick should be valid (only in the nether ofc), ghasts only netherrack and soulsand, blaze only netherbrick and endermen like zombies in the overworld and only endstone in the end. the way it is now is just a major annoyance. Djerun 12:49, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I actually agree there, there should be an unspawnable block for building. Not sure about ore though, there's no reason not to spawn mobs on it since it's natural and found underground. Maybe metal blocks? They're expensive enough not to break Survival. --Steve G. Wood 14:03, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
  • The thing about ores is they can give some quite nice patterns and srsly how much of the cave floor is ores? fells like 0,5% Djerun 23:01, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Actually, currently you can prevent mobs from spawning rather easy, too. Just surround you base with glass floor, water, torches and/or half slabs. Paving the surrounding of you base is actually a huge task (unless using worldedit or something) and a lot more time consuming than placing a few torches for example. So it should be rewarded by preventing mobs from spawning, I think. Now that I think about it, it actually makes no sense for mobs not to be able to spawn on half slabs but being able to spawn on normal blocks. In my opinion the current spawning rules don't make much sense at all and should be fixed in the long term. -- JonHa97 21:29, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
  • You realize how ugly glass floors around your base are? and having it around the base doesn't help in the base. Djerun 23:01, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Spawnable Blocks (with low enough light level) should be: Cobblestone, Mossstone, Dirt, Grass, Gravel, Sand, Sandstone, Obsidian, Stone, Stone Brick (+Cracked & Mossy), Pumpkin, (if they grew in nature melons).
    Planks maybe, because they occur in mineshafts as bridges, but then how many % of the mineshafts are bridges.
    Netherrack and Soulsand for Zombiepigmen, Ghasts and Magma Cubes, Netherbrick for Zombie Pigmen and Blaze, Endstone for Endermen (in the End)
    They should not spawn on Logs because they are either covered with leaves or surround village farmland (fist is unspawnable second is "artificial")
    Blocks like flowers, mushrooms, snow(layer) and tall grass should be ignored and the block below checked, while leaves, redstone wire/torches power/detector rails, signs, levers, buttons should block spawning.
    Normal rails: similar to Planks, they occur in mineshafts, so maybe only make them spawnably when on stone (only clean stone) and gravel<all blocks not listed should be unspawnable Djerun 23:01, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Which also means double half slabs should be unspawnable (well then planks could as well be spawnable since we could put double half planks instead) Djerun 23:04, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Moved from talk page to here. Downgraded to annoyance.--Kumasasa 07:36, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Confirm: I've tend to have the character turn in the direction opposite the last turn. I've noticed it happen most on a long unpowered straight stretch east/west. I launch my carts out of a loop launcher by frobbing a lever from the moving cart, so this is a /derp for me. -- 19:37, 14 July 2012 (UTC) (Featherwinglove)


[N] Spawned inside the floor under my bed on game load, "/derp why am I dying?" get out and look around. My sign works? Oh, yeah, I loaded ol' R1.2.5 so I could play "Super Hostile - Sea of Flame II"; my regular game hadn't been run since I switched minecraft.jar. Switched it back to 12w27a, restarted and spawned on the surface above the mine. Too funny not to post something. It also might be useful for people working on spawn altitude bugs/fixes. -- Featherwinglove 16:12, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

[F] Any blocks above Y=191 when logging into a single player world become invisible. Logging out on a structure above this level on SSP made me unable to move, place blocks, or break blocks because I was glitched into invisible blocks. -- 16:08, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Seems to also occur in multiplayer for me. Anyone else able to add any more information? -TheWyo 23:14, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Occurs for me as well. Can produce screenshots if need be. Also, the blocks seem to reappear upon a block update; the structure that disappeared for me was a farm so when farmed soil became wet farmed soil, it showed up. When melons grew, they showed up. Placing a block on the newly appeared blocks causes it to turn into whatever block is actually there (making the old block visible). Exiting the game and returning makes all blocks invisible again. -Bleaker 01:14, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • This happened to me in the Nether. I thought I screwed something up in MCEdit. I couldn't interact with the blocks, but they stopped my motion. I was flying upward into a ceiling of bedrock in creative. I could not break them or place blocks, though I didn't do much testing as I thought it was my world file. --5thHorseman 04:05, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • It is acting somewhat like an ordinary chunk error except that it happens above y:190. --Inertiahttp://youtu.be/_35mQCUjCMc
  • I have the same problem, if I place a block where the glitched invisible block should be, it turns into said block. This is happening on a mac computer if that means anything significant. --Eject_303, UK
  • It seems the height is different among users, but resides around 192. [1]
  • '(Merged duplicate) Block updates aren't working above a certain point. I was able to see blocks above a certain point before, but not now. What I see is: http://i.imgur.com/Kb2Rq.png To get them back, I can replace them how it was before, but upon relogging they disappear again. When I try to fly through it, it seems there is a 'ghost' block there. Arrows can hit it, but nobody can walk through it or destroy it. It's like this for everyone playing on my server.

[S] In a fairly recently made world, I tp'd a short distance from the Far Lands. First, I noticed torch particles are pretty far from the torch. Secondly, it is possible to place a torch on the invisible wall that marks the edge of the map.

File:Far Lands Torch Glitch.png

Far Lands torch glitch

This can be reproduced by placing a torch on the last block in bounds, then right clicking to place a torch on that torch. This will put a torch on the invisible wall of the far lands. --Keithicus420 06:03, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

  • The torch particle thing is a known mechanism of proximity to the Far Lands, as I recall. As for placing torches on the invisible wall, I think it relates to placing torches on glass or similar, though I don't really know about that. --Fperson1 05:23, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
  • We like to imagine that the farlands operates in another dimension, where space is warped around the mind of the ender. Or something. Either way, not fixing. — Mojang AB logo.png Dinnerbone(T) 09:57, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[N] When right clicking a minecart with furnace the minecart moves foward on the track. You cannot access the furnace to place wood or coal --Kain837

  • This is how it has always been? You hold the fuel in your hand and right-click to add one of said fuel item into the powered minecart. This will cause it to run until the fuel is depleted. You can't drop in an entire stack at once. --Techokami 01:42, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  • oops, your are right about dropping a whole stack in, but if you hand is empty and you right click the cart will move 1 block forward on its on, no coal was placed in the furance --Kain837
  • I can confirm this (I remeber observing this event back in 1.2.5 as well). It does happen in survival mode (and I am sure is a bug in said mode) but were you in creative when it happened? It is intentional in creative, but it is supposed to act like you put a piece of coal in the furnace (and move much further than one block), whereas in survival this isn't supposed to happen at all.--Marioman66 01:38, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
  • At first I was in creative, then I changed my gamemode back to survival in both instances the cart only moved forward one block --Kain837

[U] [SP] Pick Block is not working. Ristovski 14:16, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

[N] Not sure when this started, noticed in 12w27a, but when sitting in a stopped minecart, I now have the ability to aim down the track and hold w and the minecart will lurch forward, even on an unpowered powered rail. I do not believe this is intended behavior. ArcherSeven 05:49, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I remember when this first occurred, though I don't remember the version. It's been this way for a while. I think it *is* intentional but don't think it was announced. I do know it's appreciated. I hate having to get out of a cart to push it to the powered rail or downhill slope when something stops it. --5thHorseman 12:44, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

[N] I don't need full set of libraries to get 30 lvl on table. Something like 10-15 is sufficient. It shouldn't be. There should be a reason to build full set of libraries. --velvetpro 23:40, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I think this is intentional. Even if you need 30 levels to enchant it, you still won't get the best enchantment. I think the more books you have, you get a greater chance of getting more high level enchantments, regardless of you using 30 levels. --Autofire 18:39, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
    • Can somebody confirm this mechanism? --velvetpro 19:45, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • This is an intended feature. It was explicitly stated that the maximum enchantment level is now 30, and it only takes ~15 bookshelves to get to. Also, the amount of bookshelves you have does not affect the actual enchantments directly, only changing the maximum possible level. More than 15-16 bookshelves does not increase the chance of getting more or better enchantments. --Fperson1 05:23, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[N] Not sure if this is supposed to happen, but I managed to get a tripwire to trigger with the only thing intersecting the wire being a dropped redstone torch. This occurred when I destroyed the block the redstone torch was on in creative mode, causing it to drop onto the wire and activate it. The circuit was not previously being affected by the presence of the redstone before block deletion so I am certain it is related to the dropped redstone torch intersecting the wire. This might be intended but I'm fairly sure it's not intended. Pharap 16:54, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

  • It's intended. From the wiki: "To activate a Tripwire when it is connected, an entity (mobs, minecarts, boats, arrows, items, etc.) must move on, through or over it." dropped items (like your torch) are entities. --5thHorseman 23:01, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[S] When crouching next to a block that has vines, the player will "glide" as if on ice.

  • Default property of ladders. If you sneak on a ladder you glide just as you said. Vines have the properties of ladders, but you need to push against a wall to ascend. --Manuelschi 17:17, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

[F] [SP] I destroyed many ice-blocks in a frozen lake with an enchanted axe (fortune III, efficence IV, unbreaking III) until the axe broke. The last ice-block disappeared and there was a hole. Around it there was water. I couldn't swim through it. I placed blocks from the bottom of the lake to the top and the ice-block I destroyed came back.

  • Something possibly related; I was digging down through dirt and heard a splash sound. about 5 blocks from surface, the dirt block I dug out turned into water instead of dropping, as did the ones beside it. --Fperson1 05:14, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[!] Pistons, set on a rapid delay, glitch out - Sometimes it is possible to create phantom blocks with the same properties as a normal block, but the phantom block doesn't drop anything when broken. When walking to a piston set on a rapid delay (see video), you will go up & down, shifting will make you go up even higher. Sometimes there is no sound when breaking a block in that contraption. See this video, it explains those bugs better. NiceMark 18:52, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

[!] Look straight down, jump and try to place a block. Sometimes it works, sometimes the block appears and then disappears. The previous snapshot did not have this issue. --Croftyraider 17:05, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I've seen this a lot with peaceful mobs (It would probably happen with hostiles too but they're - you know - hostile) nearby. It's like the client thinks it's OK to place the block (and it looks so to me as well) but the server is a tiny bit ahead of me so it sees that the mob has walked within the bounding box. I imagine it's similar when you're jumping. By the time the server sees that you want to place the block, you're already coming down. --5thHorseman 20:50, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I have the same. When you manually click each block in good time, it is better. But this is a bug ofcourse. --velvetpro 21:40, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Yeah, I noticed this within 2 minutes of trying the latest patch. That and the fact that signs' text from previous versions has become invisible. 14:42, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • What bothers me most about this sort of bug is that it only ever happened on multiplayer, prior to single player and multiplayer being merged... suddenly my nice fast single player world is slow and has glitches like this. Sigh. 14:53, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
(Merged duplicate) Since the merge, "pillaring" is almost impossible due to the server and client being off a little. Every time you jump and place a block under you, the game thinks you were occupying that space and places and quickly deletes that block. Basically, holding right click ad the jump button to pillar doesn't work anymore- you have to time it perfectly for it to work. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (Talk) .

[X] Tripwire hooks makes randomly block updates. It can be seen when tripwire hooks are connected to blocks that BUD or TBUD check.

  • This is a 12w26a video that exhibits the random block updates at 0:16 and 2:10 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INTTrFnO8X0 - They only seem to happen with a pair of hooks facing each other. --Steve G. Wood 02:44, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
    • That is not required. I connected about nine tripwire hooks to TBUD and it triggered quite often. Screenshots of that "one bit random generator":
      Tripwire hooks are not connected and there is no other tripwire hooks.

[X] XRay ability when player is within leaf blocks. Easy to achieve with oak saplings and bonemeal. See http://abrightmoore.tumblr.com/post/26751604008/want-to-be-a-minecraft-druid-dial-before-you-dig --ABrightmoore 10:38, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] When you are 65 and more blocks away from a chest (double or single, doesn't matter) it will become invisible. So far, it only seems to happen with chests. noteblocks for example remain visible. Maybe someone want's to see/test if this happens with other blocks, too. Anub!s 18:19, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

After some further investigation, this also happens with:

  • Signs
  • Ender Chests
  • The animated book on the enchantment table (the table itself remains visible, it's just the book which disappears!)

Also Paintings disappear at a distance of 44 blocks Anub!s 20:15, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

  • The chests, signs, Ender chests and the book on the enchantment table disappear after 65 blocks because they're tile entities. The paintings disappear after 44 blocks because they are entities (Like all mobs, dropped items, and the Ender Crystal) 01:22, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

          • More like an annoyance than a bug. Mine carts are meant to be stopped by entities. NiceMark 20:01, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
            • Are they? All entities would also mean for example dropped items. I think minecarts should be unaffected by "light" entities like dropped items, arrows, fishing rods etc. -- JonHa97 07:27, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Normal-sized mushrooms can't be planted outside at night. This is because the skylight level is always 15, even at night, and the reason for this is so crops and flowers don't uproot themselves every night. Perhaps there could be a workaround for this. It is intentional that they're not supposed to be planted outside in the daytime, but they don't even work at night. TorchicBlaziken 20:39, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • It is my understanding that normal-sized mushrooms cannot be placed directly underneath the sky, regardless of the light level. Also, this same phenomenon (possibly a bug) existed in 12w26a. -- 21:56, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Fires set by lightning neither burning nor burning out correctly. I found a burning block of sand in the desert. It didn't go out although I observed it for some time, and standing in the flames didn't set me on fire. I would expect logging out and in again will fix this, although possibly only if I'm in the same or a nearby chunk. I also found some more fire blocks in a nearby forest, and these were harmless too. I think I've also seen similar reports at least 1-2 versions ago. -- 21:32, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] If I grow a jungle sapling with bonemeal, and the resulting tree tries to take up space where another block already exists (in this case wood fence blocks), then the tree deletes the preexisting blocks and replaces them with parts of the tree. here is an album of pictures demonstrating testing of all four tree types on 5 different blocks: fence (wood/nether) glass(pane/block) and dirt (was going to test iron bars as well, but forgot). each sapling was planted with a one block gap between it and the test material.link--Marioman66 02:31, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

  • It could be possible that something similar to small oak trees has happened with the jungle tree growth mask, in other words that there is a mismatch between the mask used for the large jungle trees and their test mask used when they were initially introduced. Please see this link for more information: [3] BrickVoid 06:59, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] [MP] Not sure if anyone has noticed, but when you place Redstone Dust on sand, then pressing the left mouse button and right very shortly after (Holding down once pressed), as expected, the redstone will appear then disappear, but it seems to change the metadata of the sand block to the following (There may be more): TNT, Bricks, Grass, Stone, Iron Block, and some others incomprehensible to see. The metadata changes around every tick, and it turns back to sand every other tick and continues until you stop doing the above. This is a bug, since I am deadly sure that doing the actions shouldn't do that, and to back it up, I DID look in the code, and found nothing of doing the bug in question. I did it on many servers, with both modded minecraft.jar's and vanilla minecraft.jar's. I have been unable to reproduce it in SP, only SMP. And strange thing, seems to only happen on a sand block... --DXPower 01:24, 9 July 2012 (EST)

  • Falling sand and gravel are entities and cob webs slow down every entity so thats more of an annoyance --Bljat 14:29, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • That's the technical reason behind this bug but neither it's realistic in any way nor it makes sense for simple users who don't understand entities and it's probably not intended, too. Falling block entities should probably be unaffected by webs or they should destroy webs or maybe even become "solid" on top of them. -- JonHa97 07:27, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • The reason this exists the way it is not to do with technical reasons, but because falling sand/gravel entities convert themselves to items when they fall on certain objects like torches, pressure plates, and of course spider webs, to name a few. Fixing this bug would cause Mojang some major headaches having to code different reactions for different blocks just because of an unrealistic behaviour, and would break anti-suffocation measures most players use when they want to dig upwards to collect blocks like sand or gravel. I also think that this is both an annoyance and intended behaviour as cobwebs and gravel have interacted in this way ever since they were introduced in mineshafts. I vote to downgrade this to annoyance or have it removed. BrickVoid 10:40, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Just because it was like this since the beginning doesn't mean it's intended. Might be just an oversight. And until a Mojang guy states that this is intended, I don't believe it, because it really looks stupid. On the other hand, falling sand on cobwebs is IMHO a rather unusual thing, so it's not really annoying. Might just leave this bug here until someone from Mojang fixes this or states that the current behavior is intended/not worth fixing. -- JonHa97 21:04, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I believe that a Mojang developer already stated in a previous snapshot version that this behaviour is intended and not actually a bug. However, it has been so long since that statement was made that I cannot find the relevant snapshot listing where this statement was made so a citation from someone would be needed stating on what page this wiki has them saying this.

[X] When an extended piston pretends another piston to extend(the other piston is powered by redstone too) and you destroy the piston which blocks the other the blocked piston extends and it looks like it is extended and collapsed at the same time

Applying power to the piston will not fix it and it needs to be manually destroyed to become unextended.--mmmfrieddough

[A] Breaking a block underwater does'nt show the breaking animation when standing above water Anub!s 19:38, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Holding vines in F5 mode will make the vines appear grey

[A!] Double Place: Often (very often several times in a row) when I attempt to place a block with a single right click, a second block instantaneously appears (often in the same frame). Second solid blocks are usually in the way, which can be disastrous when doing an emergency placement in battle. Non-solid second blocks (usually torches) often appear behind me. With this glitch, I always hear a second placement sound almost simultaneous with the first. I think this is a side effect of continuous placement mode (backpedaling or strafing to place many blocks with a single click), which I don't want to lose. My suggestion is to set block placement to "semi-automatic" (one click, one block) while holding shift. I also recommend this be done with breaking blocks in Creative, but should not be necessary in Survival. (Note: I do not believe the observed mid-air, behind-the-player dirt placement in this video (at 14:30) is related.) -- Featherwinglove 15:45, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Slow computers exhibit a noticeable lag spike when placing or removing blocks. During this lag spike, input is not refreshed but the counter for continuous placement still goes on causing blocks to be placed. Most probably a bug, since the timing should wait at least one frame before confirming more block placements as this can cause a chain reaction. --Steve G. Wood 18:44, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] If you place a slab on a grass block (that has tall grass on it) from above (standing next to, looking down at where you are to place the slab), the game erases the grass and sets the block on the top half of the box. Common sense would say that the slab should replace the grass but be placed on the bottom half of the box. I assume this happens because the game uses the grass' bounding box to determine if the slab should be placed in the upper or lower half of the box. --5thHorseman 19:58, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] If you place a block to make a wall and stand as close as possible to that wall, and then place a block, the game renders the block for a moment, then disappears.

  • I don't think this is a bug; you're placing a block in a space you're partially occupying, so the game tries to place it, but then removes it. This is nothing new and is certainly not a major bug. Please visit the Classifying bugs page and sign your comments with ~~~~. Downgrading and editing for clarity. --Keithicus420 18:40, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I have experienced this as well, however this happened in SMP on 1.2.5. I would personally say that this has to do with the merger of SSP and SMP. --Fperson1 01:04, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
  • This is related to the pillaring bug and can be fixed by letting the client decide if a new block is intersecting its own player. The server should only check for other entities, not the same player that placed the block as it can check that locally, and it already does. --Steve G. Wood 12:28, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] The following blocks do not burn (add more if I missed some):

  • Sign
  • Ladders
  • Crafting Table
  • Jukebox (would waste diamond)
  • Bed
  • Wooden Pressure Plate
  • Wooden Door
  • Note Block
  • Trapdoor
  • Chest (would be terrible if it did)

[A] Iron ore doesn't drop experience orbs. What's the point of this, because coal drops experience, but it's more common.

  • Intended behavior. Iron and Gold Ore do not drop experience on break because they drop as placeable ore blocks, and smelting them on a furnace gives equivalent experience. --Steve G. Wood 18:47, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • (Merged duplicate) I get experience from mining coal, but not iron /derp? -- Featherwinglove 19:15, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Intentional. You get XP when you get the final form of an item. For coal, you mine it. For iron, you have to smelt it. Otherwise, you could find some iron ore, mine it, replace it, mine it, replace it, mine it, replace it... infinite XP! -- 20:03, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Vote for removal (or at least strike-through so that this bug won't be reentered) --Kumasasa 22:46, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Mushroom blocks can't be harvested or placed properly, reverting to damage/data value 0, a block which appears to use the mushroom pore texture on all six sides. This makes it impossible to use the red, brown, and white mushroom block textures in creations without using pistons to push blocks around. It is also inconsistent with the expected behavior of silk touch: if silk touch is capable of harvesting a block, it should not transform it upon harvesting. Transforming a block upon its placement (which happens when placing mushroom blocks of any damage value, obtained through cheats available in vanilla) is also completely illogical and a roadblock to making things from the mushroom blocks. Perhaps mushroom blocks could be made properly harvestable as "Red/Brown Mushroom Top", "Red/Brown Mushroom Edge", "Red/Brown Mushroom Corner", and "Red/Brown Mushroom Stem", where the edge and corner blocks would be placed in a directional manner similar to pumpkins (upside-down mushroom blocks would not be available, as this would require splitting the current two mushroom block data values into multiple). --WolfieMario 13:44, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

[F] Text on signs placed in previous versions is invisible in w27. Likewise text on signs placed in w27 is invisible in previous versions.

  • The signs just look blank (and equally, mobspawners look like pigs) but they're actually fine. Fixed! Dinnerbone 15:13, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  • The text isn't saved like everything else. If you edit a sign in w27 it is erased and all signs will be blank upon the next time you load the map in w27. Yuki-nagato 02:48, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

  • (Merged duplicate) Text on signs is completely erased every time a saved game is opened in the new snapshot. Yuki-nagato 00:42, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

  • (Merged duplicate) Text on signs disappear after saved world is loaded. It is probably related to first item under Fixed/Skipped below, except that I'm having it happen after saving and loading in 12w27a. I'm not loading a world from an older version (although the world I'm playing was originally 1.2.5, I have placed, edited, and lost signs since updating to 12w27a.) -- Featherwinglove 19:53, 11 July 2012 (UTC) (somehow my login got dropped.)
  • It's the same bug. The signs will be blanked when a chunk-update (removing / reloading to memory) occurs. This applies to already placed signs in existing worlds created by previous versions and also to newly placed signs in the current version. To reproduce you also can walk away far enough (so that the chunk will be unloaded) and come back to the sign; it will be blank. But your entered text is not be lost, it will reappear in the next snapshot / version. --Kumasasa 22:41, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • (Merged duplicate) When I was in an abandoned mineshaft the other day I saw a spawner. I was on creative mode so I went up to it. When I looked inside through the little cracks there was a pig inside! So I took it off of creative and it was still a pig but it didn't spawn anything. This also happened to me again the next day. I was in a dungeon like thing on creative and found another pig spawner. I haven't seen a real mob spawner yet. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (Talk) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Sugarcane in mid-air

Free-floating sugarcane blocks found. These don't appear to have anything below them, so presumably maybe not the same issue as the invisible cactus bug. Logging out and in again while standing in front of the item cleared the issue, and then the lower canes were also hittable. --Simons Mith 19:24, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Did you walk a long distance to find this? I'm pretty sure this has to do with unpopulated chunks being populated without letting the client know, and then the sugarcane must have grown. LB 01:17, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • No, but I had teleported to about -4500, 2500 a couple of days earlier, then swam a couple of hundred blocks to shore, but since then I had simply been moving about normally in the new area, gathering resources. -- 08:55, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

[N] When collecting Mushroom blocks with Silk Touch it will not preserve the damage value. TorchicBlaziken 23:49, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Intentional behaviour, not a bug. Maybe an annoyance, if you want to move it there. Dinnerbone 10:43, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

[N] When placing Mushroom blocks of a damage value greater than 0, it will revert to 0 upon placing. This used to happen with Monster Eggs, before they were tweaked in 12w17a to prepare them for inclusion in the Creative Mode inventory. This should be changed because the damage values of mushroom blocks are now available using cheats. TorchicBlaziken 23:59, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

[F] Many times while underground (This is only where I have noticed it), many blocks may be represented by a stone block, and will revert to their true image and properties if hit, or something is placed upon them. For example, while walking across a stone floor, it is possible to hear the noises of walking across gravel, and if you strike the blocks at your feet, they will turn into gravel. Or placing a torch on a stone wall will suddenly turn the block it was placed upon into dirt or gravel. This causes problems as it can also occur with blocks such as ores. Meaning that one can mine a vein of coal ore, only to miss some that simply look like stone until struck. This raises concerns of the possibility of passing up diamond ores for the same reason (While I have not seen this occur, I have no reason to believe it could not). If say a dirt block were represented by a stone block (I have also never seen any block other than stone behave this way. I have never seen a dirt block turn to stone nor any block turn to any other, other than stone turning to other blocks), and one were to destroy this block, it would respond to tools the same way a stone block would (be broken quickly by a pick), but when destroyed, is instantly and briefly replaced by a dirt block, then the dirt block disappears leaving a dirt block entity. In addition, although the stone block shares most of its properties with normal stone blocks, walking on it will produce the sound of walking on the block it represents, the dirt sound in this case. If one were to begin destroying this stone block and then stop, however, the stone block is then replaced by a dirt block and then has all the properties of a dirt block. A detonating creeper will also reveal the true identities of the stone blocks around it. However, if say a gravel block were represented by a stone block, and a creeper detonates standing near it, it will use stone's value of blast resistance during the explosion, then turn to gravel afterwards, creating the appearance of gravel or dirt being unnaturally close to an explosion.

  • This has happened to me several times also, and certainly not just underground. Started a new game, was seeking coal and dug out a small hole in a wall only to find cobblestone. Left to get coal elsewhere, returned to this "man made" hole I dug to find several coal blocks where actually there. Also dug out some cobblestone to be presented with dirt dropped. Quitting and reloading reveals the real blocks too, one area was showing cobblestone and I knew it was dirt, quit, reloaded and voila, it was dirt. Scary problem this, cos I could miss Diamonds! --Keogh 11:59, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[F] Walked into a sand block above/next to a lava lake and caught fire. Reloaded the save and the blocks were different than before. To recreate -- use seed: -533253954, large biomes, coords x:739 y:64 z:-37. Fly to those coords, land on the stone blocks, face E/SE and walk into the sand and you should catch fire.

[X] When using an enchanted diamond pick when it gets to the end of its durability it breaks, but is still there as an invisible block in your inventory, when you attempt to use the invisible block you can still mine with it and the item icon comes back for approximately 2-3 hits before breaking for good. I think it may have something to do with the unbreaking enchantment.

  • You mean invisible item? If you don't hear the break sound it didn't actually break - if you right click it should come back. This bug is from the client trying to damage tools itself instead of letting the server tell it what is and isn't damaged. LB(T|C) 21:54, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Collecting water with at least 2 buckets while stacked, will duplicate a third bucket of water.

  • This duplicate is ghost. It will disappear if clicked on inventory, or on reload/relog. 09:37, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Due to the changes in the enchantment system, it is currently seemingly impossible to get Efficiency 5 on diamond tools, this needs to be re-added as the difference of Eff 4 / 5 is very much noticeable and Eff4 just feels like working in slow motion... 13:58, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Ive noticed this too, over 20 enchanted pickaxes (over a long time) and never got efficiency 5, highest i got was 4, even when i had all 15 bookshelves and chose level 30 enchantments. Gravemind2401 15:46, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

  • The player can only collects items when they are from foot height to 1.5m; changing the vertical reach to 1.7 should make mining more enjoyable. --Steve G. Wood 18:55, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Sometimes mined blocks (and possibly other entities too) can't be picked up. This has been reported before. It appears to occur if they land on the exact edge of a straight vertical drop. The dropped items sporadically 'jump' vertically to their old position, then fall back again. Additional info; if you pour water over these entities, they will wash away, but still can't be picked up even from the new position. They continue to 'jump' as before, but now from the new place to the original. I tried this because I thought pouring water over uncollectable items might be a workaround for the original problem. Appears not... --Simons Mith[] 15:07, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

  • This probably means that drops have a mismatch on their clientside and serverside collision masks. AFAIK their mask is a zero-width point, increasing it to one pixel shouldn't hurt the physics. --Steve G. Wood 12:44, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
  • (merged duplicate) Dropped items sometimes refuse to be picked up. I had a sapling that was dropped from a tree, and I couldn't pick it up. I tried to remove blocks under it, but that didn't work. After about a minute of walking through it, it popped into my inventory. http://i.imgur.com/jMcwx Happens rarely, but it has happened several times now, in different snapshots. --Blunderbrain 10:48, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
The sapling is resting on a leaf on the server's screen but it's not on your screen. It should teleport back up and fall again for you, is that correct? LB 23:42, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I've seen this with apples and an emerald. I've dug around where they fall in case they're trapped in a block, but never could get them. Eventually, they're removed from the game. I've watched them teleport back up and fall again. There appears to be a duplicate version of this bug under Items.

[A!] Due to the way items are rendered, they are invisible if being seen from behind while looking down. This is especially annoying in creative mode and when looking for stuff underwater. An easy solution would be not to cull the backside. Rendering them like how they are in the player's hands - and probably spinning - would be ideal, but at a cost of a large performance hit. --Steve G. Wood 12:44, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Switching same tools with different durability values. When holding a tool in the inventory screen and left-clicking on a different item they will exchange places. But if one clicks on a tool of the same type, but with a different durability, they will not switch. It can be seen very frequently in my Hardcore Heaven series on Youtube (same username/channel) -- Featherwinglove 15:23, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Reworded for clarity. Also strangely enough, enchanted items will trade, but only if the enchantments are different. --Steve G. Wood 12:44, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
  • (merged duplicate) Have two *undamaged* swords with differing enchantments. Have one picked up and then click on the other one. For any other item, the two should switch place, so you now held the other sword picked up. But they don't switch. Thue 22:38, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] When you have the FOV slider over Normal and fishing the start of the fishing line in first-person mode is in wrong location. There are ways to to do it on wrong location in 3rd person-mode too. --Swekob 20:18, 6 July, 2012(Swedish time)


[F] Upon death and respawn, a compass will not point to spawn but to the coordinates X:8 Z:8. I've tried it in survival and creative. For instance: before death, the compass pointed to X: -224 Z: -148, where I was spawning, after death, the compass was pointing to X:8 Z:8. Quitting and reloading the world resets the compass. --MrMcCollen 01:35, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] You can spawn underground (See seed -2798893491947491437)

  • I dont think this is a bug. What do you mean "underground"? In a cave near the entrance/exit? Or just in some random place underground, and not near the entrance/exit? 00:08, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Can't reproduce. Tried several times, spawned normal every time. 23:55, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I know the seed 404Ever used to spawn you in a lava lake, but because of the random-spawn behavior of servers this seems to be fixed to an extent. LB 23:51, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Also happened to me once. I spawned in a dungeon. And, it's hard to reproduce this bug since the spawn point is now randomized every time you create a world. 19:49, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Just like abandoned mineshafts were before the floors were implemented, strongholds generate weirdly when they cross a ravine. The seed -623160645725253637 is a good example of this with a stronghold in a hole close to spawn which crosses an underground ravine. TorchicBlaziken 22:00, 4 May 2012 (UTC)

[X] Copied from "Talk:Known bugs/Version 12w27a"

I found water flowing underground with no water source block. When I placed a block, it updated and the water disappeared. I could give seed and coords and it should be reproducible: Seed: -908895685616615920 Coords: x=0, y=12, z=267 Mellamokb 18:21, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I tried the seed, When I created the world I crashed. When I relogged, I went a few steps and crashed again. Just to be sure- Do you spawn in a Taiga? This happens when I goto X:0. It doesn't even show a crash report, just automatically crashed.Harrison1220 01:52, 6 July 2012 (UTC)Harrison1220
  • I tried the seed also and nothing crashed. I see the source of water, however i am not able to use bucket on it. It is strange. It is a bug i think. --velvetpro 02:48, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I tried the seed and crashed soon after the world loaded. The errors were about java heap space, so i doubled minecraft's memory allowance. After that I still had massive lag, but was able to teleport to the water. I wasn't able to use a bucket on it, however the scooping animation still showed. Smashing an adjacent stone block caused the water to flow away. And as a test I tried to pick up the water flowing down the nearby ravine, and was able to. However, once the water finished flowing away I heard many instances of the water/lava hissing sound play at once, and the bucket emptied itself. This may be caused by the server not telling the client to update the water, and the server thinks it is not there, while the client thinks it is. Acomputerdog 18:07, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
    • Switching to survival mode fixed the bucket issues, and behind the wall where the water was flowing I found a deep pit with lava and water falls coliding at the bottom. The water flows out the wall where the glitched water started, but then the lava turns part of the stream to stone/cobblestone, but does not update the water. This may simply be a chuck update bug. Acomputerdog 18:13, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
      • Did you know that if you are in Creative mode, an empty bucket becomes a magic empty bucket? It will always remain empty irrespective of whether you fill it with lava or water. It will briefly show the liquid it just picked up but is now programmed to immediately empty itself. This was a recent and intentional design change to how buckets work in Creative mode. I do not know how the empty buckets work on filling up with milk from cows and there is a milk bucket available in Creative inventory anyway, if you wanted to know. BrickVoid 22:20, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
        • Recent? I'm pretty sure empty buckets never filled up with a liquid in Creative mode.


  • All monster spawners in dungeons spawn the correct mob but have pigs spinning inside the block instead of that mob.


[F] To describe many of the bug reports related to world generation, when unpopulated chunks are populated, the new changes to the chunks aren't always correctly sent to the client. This means that if you walk a ways or mine long tunnels underground and go into newly generated chunks, ores veins and other features will be invisible until certain circumstances make them visible to the client. It shouldn't be a difficult fix to have the chunk population process inform the client of the changes. I believe this is a major bug because so many people are reporting problems related to it. LB 23:37, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

  • (Duplicate) Every once in a while there will be blocks that appear as one kind, but change texture to their normal block when right-clicked. This seems to happen most often in deserts, and is most irritating, because some cacti become invisible and lava pools will look as though they are part of the sand in the terrain until you walk over one and start burning to death.

[F] Some generated cacti are invisible, I accidentaly walk to them. --Conscripta

[X] It seems that snow golems don't leave a trail of snow. I tried SP, plains biome - will try some other biomes. If now there is no way to generate snow outside of tundra and taiga, it's a major annoyance.

  • This is a bug, sir. Also, I did reproduce it at one point, with a Snow Golem in a Superflat world as part of an experiment with Endermen. The Enderman created the Snow Golem, was killed, and the Golem ran free, without leaving a trail. However, all the Snow Golems I've made in Survival have left trails of snow. I don't entirely know what to make of it. --Fperson1 18:48, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

[!] I'm surprised no one else noticed this, but when you hit a zombie with a sword, it goes into a sort of "stunned" stage for about 4 seconds. While in this stage, it moves inches at a time and very slowly.

  • I can confirm this, very strange. LB 01:15, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I confirm also, but it is not 4 seconds, it is 1-2 sec. Changed to major bug. --velvetpro 20:43, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

[!] When re-entering a "Singleplayer" world inside a village at night there may be some or even hordes of zombies all over the place, even if the village is completely lit. I've even seen 2 zombies appear inside a house with a 3x3 floor that has a torch on the floor (which then proceeded to try to break out of said house). Im suspecting zombie spawning may ignore light levels when freshly re-entering a world. 14:08, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Pretty sure thats a zombie siege, where zombies can spawn regardless of light level and even in transparent blocks. Its annoying that it happens on chunk loading though --Bljat 14:36, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Ok but... INSIDE buildings? that doesnt feel right. 22:23, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Maybe. It does seem a bit unfair that zombies should spawn in a building that has been lit properly, but if they didn't do that you could light a building, block the villagers in (with unbreakable blocks rather than doors), and never lose a single villager. -- 20:37, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

  • This is a bug. It happens to me all the time. The chunk has to be fully unloaded during gameplay (not just out of the render distance), then when it is reloaded, they will teleport to the player, sometimes with a slight delay. This bug is still the same as it was in 1.2.5. ~Cm283 17:36, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I think this is intentional, as it is how silverfish behave as well. The wolf dies before it can call for help. I think Zombie Pigmen should technically behave the same way. LB 23:56, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] [MP] Using a tnt launcher, the player will hit a bump, fall down and then shoot up again. -- Mustek 14:29, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Minor oversight: Wild wolves can be fed (and I see no reason they shouldn't be feedable), but won't breed. . -- 13:23, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Mobs/Animals can push each other through wall, then they seemingly appear where they actually aren't. You can boost this effect, by making small quarters, on animals wielding wheat, and on mobs aggravating them. Maybe it's caused by pushing speed value added after animals/mobs speed value has been clamped by walls, when pushing speed value should've been added before clamping. -- 07:44, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Instead of looking at the player's head chicken look up if the player is below and down if the player is above the chicken --Bljat 17:46, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Skeletons and Zombies do not burn in sunlight while standing on "normal" slabs. (They do while standing on upside down slabs) --Kumasasa 18:56, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • This is because the undead in question are technically "inside" the slab and therefore not exposed to sunlight. When they are on the upside-down slab, they're above the slab and therefore fully exposed to the sunlight. Basically, both blocks that the zombie/skeleton occupies on the Y-axis must be air that is exposed to the sun for them to burn, which is why they won't burn on a slab or on stairs, or in water. --Fperson1 03:43, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Entities against glass panes can be hit from the other side with arrows but not melee attacks. Video evidence. LB 03:48, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Mobs, including the player outside of Creative Mode, can breathe under lava. This is an oversight that has existed ever since Indev when the air meter was added to water, but Notch apparently forgot to add it to lava because back then it was impossible for any mob to survive under lava, which has changed since the addition of naturally fire-immune mobs in the Nether and potions of fire resistance. While it is true that it does not affect the gameplay much, it is still a bug. If the idea of Ghasts drowning in lava waterfalls is troubling, then Ghasts could simply be set to be able to breathe underwater.TorchicBlaziken 23:22, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

  • This page is not for feature requests. 14:43, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • This is not a feature request. Lava is a fluid, and being able to breathe inside a fluid is a bug. --Steve G. Wood 19:01, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • We've known for a very long time that you can breathe in Lava. Asking Jeb to change that is to request a new feature - namely, to be able to drown in Lava. The bug report specifically notes it as a coding oversight. It's not a bug, it's an annoyance. --Fperson1 18:53, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Zombies, when suffocating, seem to take damage in an unexpected way. When they take suffocation damage 19 times, which should leave them at 1 health, they take 2 hits to finish off with bare hands. Then after taking suffocation damage 1 more time for a grand total of 20, they die as they should. Doesn't seem to happen with cave spiders, haven't been able to test other mobs. Dutchj 12:42, 10 July 2012 (UTC + 1)

  • Zombies have 2 armor points, so you need 2 punches to finish them off. Its an annoyance though. --Bljat 14:22, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] When killing any meat mob (cow, pig, chicken) in one hit with a Fire Aspect enchanted sword they do not drop their "cooked" meat, as they do if they were to burn to death due to the Fire Aspect. This makes Fire Aspect relatively useless on mobs if the sword also has Sharpness IV (and will one-hit them). Seen in Etho's video. Reproduced in this snapshot. Ribose 20:27, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I think this is intentional. --velvetpro 20:33, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  • It is obviously intentional. Animal must die from fire damage in order to drop cooked meat. --MTandi 06:32, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Cooking always takes some time :D Changed to [A] --velvetpro 19:53, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Changed it back to a bug since flame bows do work properly. Also the animals do burn after you hit them with a fire sword. Why shouldn't the meat get cooked (burn) after you killed them? --Panda4994 12:08, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I think it is a bug - the mob should catch fire before the damage is dealt to fix it. Bows with Flame do correctly one-shot animals and give cooked meat - swords should too. LB(T|C) 22:05, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Slime will sometime appear to fall into the ground, but appear above ground shortly thereafter. Happens to all sizes. The ground below was even, not even any 1x1 holes. screenshot. I only saw it while the slime were jumping against a wall, but I didn't look too hard for other cases. Thue 15:46, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Angry Wolves spawned from Custom/Modified Monster Spawners (wolf spawners that spawn wolves with an Anger tag of 1) will not attack the player unless the player attacks them first, rather than being auto-aggressive/hostile as angry wolves created normally (by hitting a wolf) are. -- 23:42, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Are you in Creative mode? LB(T|C) 23:59, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Nope, should have clarified. I am in survival, and the wolves will never attack you on any difficulty unless you attack them first. -- 03:40, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Dogs will often run in circles and walk off cliffs or tall buildings, killing themselves. When following the player, they will sometimes move to the side and run off tall buildings. This could be summarized as odd behavior of dogs that cause them to fall from high heights. ~Cm283 17:36, 13 July 2012 (UTC)



Dog sitting underground

Mobs sink underground at intervals. In fact I think I've encountered similar problems as a player. You get 'stuck' on a block for no discernible reason and can't move unless you jump. You just sort of judder in place. Here's an image of an underground dog. She's been down there for several days. How do I get her out again?? --Simons Mith[] 21:36, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

  • You can destroy this block to free the dog. This is common in jungle ground-level (or near ground-level) leaves and chickens/pigs sitting in these leaves. --velvetpro 06:22, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] [?] It's rare, but chickens can lay eggs just after they've been killed. --Simons Mith[] 22:14, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Not a bug. Intended behavior. --velvetpro 06:17, 15 July 2012 (UTC)


[A!] If you are travelling minecart, tamed wolf can teleport on your route and stop you. Wolves shouldn't have possibility to teleport on rails. --velvetpro 23:20, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Changed to a major annoyance.

[A] Creepers got much dumber on the hard level between 1.2.5 and 12w27a (Server lag?) They often will not cancel explosions even when I have run out of their effective radius, and they often don't see me when I'm close to them, and I can see them head to toe and they're not quite facing me. The effects make them harder to kill but much less dangerous. -- Featherwinglove 15:55, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] There's a layer of white wool clipping through the top of pink sheep. -- Mustek 15:34, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Consensus that this is pink, but perhaps too light a shade. Changed to annoyance per discussion, and discussion moved to Talk:Known_bugs/Version_12w27a#Pink sheep --Simons Mith 09:30, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Villagers can fall through blocks if walked down from slabs. (haven't tested any other mobs yet.)

  • I have seen this happen to a pig as well (in a superflat world on hardcore). -- 22:09, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Ghast's fireballs do not explode.

  • If someone can confirm this, please move to bugs because this wouldn't be an annoyance. --Keithicus420 23:56, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I couldn't replicate. I went to the Nether, and gave myself a spawn egg with cheats to spawn one in the Overworld, and both times the fireballs remained distressingly explodey. --Fperson1 03:22, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] When a player hits other player's wolf, it gets angry and even on exiting and logging in, the wolf will attack that player. Also it seems that wolfs disappear after some time when angry.

  • Edited for clarity and downgraded. I have trouble seeing this as a major annoyance. --Keithicus420 23:56, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Mobs forget about you really fast when they lose the line of sight even if there is no other target around.

  • Downgrading, this isn't a major annoyance. This was reported in the last snapshot; I believe this is an example your annoyance. --23:56, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I think it is intentional that mobs forget about you quickly in Creative mode - specifically if you get too far away from them. In Survival mode I can't get them to forget about me nearly as easily. LB(T|C) 22:10, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Chickens don't collide much with other entities.

  • What does this mean? They don't run into other mobs? Please clarify. --23:56, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Tame wolves teleport right in front of you without warning. This occasionally results in you accidentally clouting one of your own pets with a shovel. It would be nice if they didn't teleport in front of your crosshairs.-- 18:56, 13 July 2012 (UTC)




[X] The Feet of the Player is looking out of the Boat/Minecart[6]
[X] Potion effects lose their graphical effects when you travel to the Nether from the normal world. -- 05:23, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Can you confirm that its the effects that are lost or just the particles? I am almost certain it is just the graphical effects on the player because doing this also removes flame particles from the player but they will still take damage --Mattrition 14:13, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  • The effects apparently still keep working, but the user get no indicators: the inventory screen shows no effects, hunger doesn't change the food meter colors, regeneration doesn't make the hearts bounce, etc. -- 06:45, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks, that means its a graphical problem. Altered report to reflect this --Mattrition 10:29, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] If a zombie is killed while breaking down a door the door can be left still appearing to be partially damaged. Further, if several zombies attack a door, the door can be destroyed while still leaving the damage graphic floating in empty space, and putting a new door in place causes the new door to look damaged. You can even fake a damaged iron door by this method. (Reworded and added new info to existing (unsigned) zombie door bug; ended up completely replacing the old report) -- 20:46, 14 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Inverted slabs still have incorrect lighting... (IMG) -- Mustek 15:32, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I think he just c&p the existing screenshot - where's the problem? --Freakedenough 20:35, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I can confirm this is still a bug in 12w27a. I have seen it a few times on my recent projects.

[X] Z-Fighting on water when fishing. They're pretty big patches in the corner of the screen and are very annoying and distracting. Screenshot[7]

[X] Jungle biomes still are a major cause of lag. I am marking this bug as minor unless consensus is reached that it's actually major, despite my own opinions and experiences to the contrary. BrickVoid 00:25, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

  • I've removed the part of this report which has nothing to do with actual bug reporting. Please don't use this as a forum to express your opinions or ask Mojang questions. Use twitter instead. Also split the interface issue into a new annoyance --Mattrition 10:20, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I've requested it below and I'll request it here, again. Part of the bug you refiled as an annoyance is still very much a bug with the user interface, not an annoyance. Would you mind reinstating it to a proper bug status? It'll probably have to be reworded, though. How do I get a talk page link to here so I can discuss this on that page instead of here, for bug tracking purposes? BrickVoid 21:40, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I've done some testing on this bug and with the help of the newly implemented /debug command available with cheats enabled, I found that whenever the client enters a jungle biome, the gamerenderer section is allowed to go to town and that part of the pie graph on the F3 screen jumps to 98% and beyond, when in fancy graphics mode. What this does is suck dry available CPU utilization for all other resources, including player movement, shown on the F3 debug graph. I request that the rendering bugs I'm reporting be treated as major bugs, because if I cannot move around in Minecraft, I cannot play, if I cannot play, I do not see any further point in trying to test and identify bugs. BrickVoid 21:54, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] The Void appears solid blue when looking at it but not in it above y=63.

  • Reworded for clarity. Also here is a video demonstrating it. <MCKMan> 15:27, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] [MP] Right clicking a chest three times in rapid succession makes the chest appear to be stuck in the open position again. Needs a little bit of latency to reproduce. Using the chest once more makes it close as normal. --Steve G. Wood 12:38, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

  • Sometimes, the bugged chest will invert its open state i. e. it will close when you are using the chest. --Steve G. Wood 12:38, 11 July 2012 (UTC)
  • It's actually just if you right click a chest more than once before it opens. It has been a bug in SMP for a while now - I think chests keep track of how many people are 'in' them by adding to a value when you right click and subtracting when you exit. Thus if you right click twice before it opens, it only subtracts once when it closes. LB(T|C) 22:16, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Stairs have misaligned textures. They look different when placed in N-S direction than in E-W. Often the texture of stairs doesn't tile properly with the rest of the blocks with the same texture (most obvious on Stone Brick Stairs). Backsides of stairs also look rather strange. --Kcin 14:38, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] [MP] Sometimes when it's either raining or there is a thunderstorm, the sky shows incorrect colours, especially at dawn or dusk. This is also true when in F1 mode while pausing. An effect that rarely happens with the latter bug is the whole pause screen dims and the sky in the background turns an odd colour.

[X] I got this at night on Direct Fire: [8]. Thue 16:39, 12 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] On SMP, when players are travelling fast in boats across an ocean for a period of time, player models will disappear.


[A!] Interface redrawing is slowed signifcantly by in-game lag. What happens is that whenever I am in a jungle and experiencing lag, I hit Esc to enter into the UI to swap the graphics from Fancy to Fast, but doing this very thing means that the UI is lagged very badly until the Fast graphics are actually enabled in the UI. If Mojang could at least separate the draw/redraw of the UI from the draw/redraw of the world rendering I would be able to at least swap to a different rendering mode much more easily. Additionally, if Mojang could come up with an interim fix for jungle biomes that limits the amount of lag they are allowed to force into the rendering of the jungle biome until Mojang get to fixing it in 1.4 that would be very helpful to people lagging in jungle biomes. BrickVoid 00:25, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

  • An update to this bug, the lag still seems to happen in jungle biomes but the client is now apparently capable of reducing it although the fact still remains that jungles cause lag under certain circumstances. To anyone else experiencing this lag in a world generated in a snapshot prior to this snapshot, the current 12w27a snapshot does still lag in the same manner if you load a world generated in a previous snapshot with jungle lag problems. The lag the old snapshot generated may still cause the same lag, however, generating the same world seed with the new snapshot seems to cut down the jungle biome lag to almost nothing. I've tested this with a seed I use a lot, and it would appear that a big lag problem at the moment seems to be jungle temples, I don't know if this is directly related to the temples themselves, however, the temporary workaround I found for the last snapshot still seems to work. Go to the graphics option, and then switch from Fancy to Fast graphics. Switching back to Fancy graphics also appears possible if sufficient time is given for the client to recover while in Fast graphics mode. BrickVoid 05:46, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I've changed this to a major annoyance. It's not a bug but it is annoying. I split the interface annoyance away from the "jungle lag" issue. I have also altered the start of the report because of the split. --Mattrition 10:22, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I've moved the attribution line for Mattrition's statement up here as I think it may have been unintentionally moved to the wrong position and got orphaned in the move. If Mattrittion wants it attributed elsewhere please shift it to where it belongs. BrickVoid 06:51, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
  • How is it possible that an actual bug that affects the interface is considered an annoyance? This is code which is defective because it's not doing what it's intended to do, therefore I request that you upgrade this major annoyance of mine to a minor bug. I've also slightly altered the start of the annoyance report: I changed the ? to a . because it really isn't a question now. BrickVoid 21:26, 6 July 2012 (UTC)
  • We have no proof that this problem is caused by defective code. It could just be the way the game is made, and therefore not a true bug. Until proof is shown that it is caused by bad code (and not just the way the render code works), I believe this should stay as an annoyance, not a bug. Aside from that, I fully support this annoyance.--Marioman66 01:10, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I have evidence that it has something to do with the allocation of resources to the gamerenderer section, specifically the the updatechunks section somewhere in that branch. The fact that it happens a lot in newly generated worlds from the same seed but not in an older version of the same seed suggests to me that there is an out of control section of code underlying the gamerenderer that needs to be examined and checked to make sure it's not trying to overrun the rendering with too many rendering jobs at once. Also please see the additional information I've added under the bug portion of this submission which Mattrition split off. I feel that my annoyance should either be reinstated to a bug status or filed as a separate additional bug within the graphical/lighting section, and I do not think of this as an annoyance, especially since annoyances don't usually point to very specific sections of code in the way this one seems to be pointing. BrickVoid 06:51, 9 July 2012 (UTC)
  • I agree that this should be a bug. It may be the way the coding works, but that doesn't necessarily mean it isn't a bug. What if the new AI code for Creepers worked in such a way that Creepers could move through blocks whilst chasing the player? That would be a bug, though the coding explicitly allows it. --Fperson1 03:29, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

  • This has been in the game since the initial introduction of Jukeboxes - they do not save the fact that they are playing or how far they are playing when the chunk is saved. In other words, they stop when you leave. I don't think it is a bug. LB 00:02, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] Rain sound not playing in extreme hills biomes.

Outcomes vary widely, but usually it does not end well, recreated on windows vista and 7 on 2 computers. Problem can be recreated at any time by typing /tp <x coordinate here> <y coordinate here> <z coordinate here> you can find the coordinates you are at by hitting F3

[MP] Cross-dimension teleports now work but cause confusion: `/tp foo bar` will take foo to bar's coordinates, even if one player is in the Overworld and the other player is in the Nether.

[A] Minecraft still says "Saved screenshot as <filename>.png", even if German language is activated. In German it should be "Screenshot wurde gespeichert als <filename>.png.". I think other languages aren't translated too.

  • Occurs with any language, not only German.
  • This is because that string is hardcoded in the game, and it not editable in the languge files. I think that is because they have to append the filename, and that has to be done through the code. -- 22:58, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

[F] /tp [player] [x] [y] [z] Does not allow using decimals, this causes player to teleport middle of four blocks instead of middle of one. 08:36, 6 July 2012 (UTC)



[X] If you click on the Mojang logo at the start of the game i.e. to regain focus, once the menu shows up it will register a mouse click wherever you clicked. This often opens the world/server selection menus. --Steve G. Wood 13:10, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] [Cr] When you holding the E button(open inventory button) the inventory will show up and quick close down.--Swekob 17.41, 7 July, 2012(Swedish time)

  • Is this not intentional? Pressing E with the menu up should (and does) close it, so this behavior seems reasonable when you hold it down. --5thHorseman 18:44, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
  • Check with the top of this page of how to report add bug tags to your report. Use {{bl}} for minor bugs, and {{bl|cr}} for Creative. Corrected. Also, I agree this is likely intentional or, at least an overlooked, feature. --Keithicus420 19:30, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] When I rearrange servers on the server list it doesn't save the change. --Pizza2004 08:54, 11 July 2012 (UTC)


[A!] While Playing, if you press Mouse 4 or 5(Keys often bound for push to talk in voice chat softwares) this will unlock the cursor, stopping you and making the game menu appear. I consider this major since being immobilized temporary in SMP is dangerous, even more in hardcore. --Algent 16:51, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[A!] On the multiplayer server list, servers running a different, incompatible, version of Minecraft display no indication of incompatibility. This can happen, for instance, if a server that was running 1.2.5 decides to update to 12w27a, and the client is still running 1.2.5, or if the client is running 12w27a and a the server is running an older snapshot. The incompatible servers should probably be grayed out, or otherwise marked. --Warr1024 17:41, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] It is good idea to show ping number on server list. --velvetpro 20:51, 9 July 2012 (UTC)

  • It already does, you just have to hover over the green bars. But showing everyone's ping number on the player list would be nice, the 'bars' thing can be misleading sometimes. --Steve G. Wood 13:10, 13 July 2012 (UTC)


[F] Loading a singleplayer world, opening it to LAN and then saving and quitting the world seems to leave the server still running and even shows up in the multiplayer LAN world list for the same client. Jrtc27 13:40, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

In-Game Interfaces/HUD


[X] When you take a screenshot and open chat in multiplayer, then click the screenshot name, Minecraft treats it as a link. Pressing Yes in the dialog that follows, will cause your web browser to open the link, without any http://, https://, file:/// or any other prefixes. Only applies to multiplayer, since singleplayer can't open chat. Screenshot

[X] Right-clicking to open a chest/furnace when in fullscreen mode (F11) relocates the mouse cursor to the bottom left of the screen each time. --Zingrook 01:41, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

  • What OS and Java-Version ? (Works fine for W7 / J7U5). --Kumasasa 05:57, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] In the Creative inventory, unless on the survival inventory tab, the last hotbar slot is one pixel too short, as demonstrated here. Redstonehelper 19:48, 6 July 2012 (UTC)

This amuses me because it probably happened a long time ago when I noticed he forgot to add the line at the end of that slot so it didn't have a white line. He said he fixed it, but I guess he must have added it a pixel short. :P --Pizza2004 21:49, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] When traveling between dimensions, the "Downloading Terrain" screen appears instead of the "Entering/Leaving the Nether/End" screen we know and love, since singleplayer is merged with multiplayer. Because of this, the sound effect that plays when using a portal does not play, either. There is no reason for it to say "Downloading Terrain" when it could just use the old screen. TorchicBlaziken 23:54, 7 July 2012 (UTC)


[A!] When editing a book, it's impossible to move cursor to beginning of line, page or other place in a page. So when you want to edit some text inside page you have to re-write the entire page. Book writing should have the moveable cursor, text selection and cut/paste similar to chat. Same applies to writing signs. Gravemind2401 09:36, 10 July 2012 (UTC)

[A!] It is impossible to type in alternate scripts in Minecraft. Because of this, in certain languages the search function is unusable except for music discs. TorchicBlaziken 01:36, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Brewing tab shows ghast tears, cuts off with potions, then resumes showing ingredients. 19:21, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Some Splash potions are mixed together with regular potions in brewing tab before the list of splash potions occurs. 19:21, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[A] Now that the other wooden stair types has been added, the "Building Blocks" section needs to be reordered, also Oak Wood Stairs needs to go right before Spruce Wood Stairs. Image: http://h9.abload.de/img/2012-07-05_19.05.556px8y.png

[A] Emerald Blocks and Emerald Ore Blocks are coloured grey on Maps (Might also apply to other blocks that were added recently) [Note: This entry has been deleted before without a fix being confirmed. In case it is already fixed, feel free to delete] --Supersonic112 22:33, 5 July 2012 (UTC)

  • IT's a "stone" block so it appear grey - 17:50, 6 July 2012 (UTC)


Language/Text Files


[!] You cannot use polish letters: ąężźćśńł. Only "ó" is allowed. This bug is on all versions of Minecraft. I hope you will fix this, because it is very annoying in multiplayer chat. --velvetpro 12:32, 7 July 2012 (UTC)

[X] When putting a music disc into a Jukebox it says ~"Now playing...." in all languages.--Swekob 18:50, 6 July, 2012 (Swedish time)

[X] [SP] Issuing "/kill" in singleplayer creative throws the message "<Player> fell out of the world" in current selected language and "Ouch. That look (sic!) like it hurt." regardless of the selected language in English.

[X] [MP] Death- and other messages are always in English regardless of the selected language.

[X] There is a bug in one of splashes:

From list of splashes:

292 Cześć Polska! Polish for "Hello, Poland!". This is grammatically incorrect, as the actual version should be "Cześć Polsko!".

--velvetpro 12:32, 7 July 2012 (UTC)


[A] Bad characters on output commands text in spanish (doesn't occur when chatting): [9] --Asmcsl 02:48, 6 July 2012 (UTC) (signed, I forgot, sorry)

[X] The Cyan Dye and Cyan Wool are not WP:cyan, they are actually WP:teal.
