Block states in /give etc.[]

I don't think the bug report was read correctly, near the top of the ticket it states "Other changes: Damage parameter should be removed from /replaceitem, /clear and /give." as well as "Damage tag should be moved to the tag tag {Damage:0}" -FVbico (talk) 14:28, 16 April 2017 (UTC + 1:00)

Indeed I may have read it incorrectly. You are closer to that bug report, please rewrite the article as you see fit. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 14:46, 16 April 2017 (UTC)
Should it be moved to the Confirmed features? Dinnerbone now specifically mentioned the flattening in a reply if commands will auto update "They could, sometimes! But a lot of things aren't really autofixable, they'd need a human to decide stuff. Mostly about the flattening." (https://twitter.com/Dinnerbone/status/887941459902689280) -FVbico (talk) 10:37, 20 July 2017 (UTC + 1:00)
Looks like enough confirmation that the flattening is coming in 1.13 to me. What do you think is included with the term "flattening"? Is it just giving the variant/color/type blockstates their own block or does it also include all the other stuff regarding damage and removing block entities for flower pots etc? --Pepijn (talk) 12:04, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
All of those things you just mentioned are included with the flattening(I created the list on the bug report as grum was making the changes), splitting the blocks and as such damage values and flower pot block entity removal too as they are part of that split, nothing is said what will happen to maps or beds (block form) though, so that may be worth mentioning separately. To quote grum on the bug tracker: "Some things might change in the future but parts of the list is what I am working on indeed. So <3 [Mod] FVbico (Steven Verberne) for the effort involved with keeping it somewhat up2date with my random ramblings" -FVbico (talk) 14:51, 20 July 2017 (UTC + 1:00)


How to understand "/scoreboard had [dataTag] removed from its commands, as they're no longer needed."? — RDmitriyS (talk) 18:43, 23 July 2017 (UTC)

It's because of the selector argument nbt= being added; making the command argument unnecessarily -FVbico (talk) 22:22, 23 July 2017 (UTC + 1:00)

Command Syntax[]

A lot of information on this page comes from Dinnerbone's Reddit post about major changes in 1.13. In this post, DB uses a syntax for commands which is different from the command syntax of this wiki but DB's syntax is very very likely going to be used ingame for the new command UI. I made a topic on the Talk:Commands page about switching the entire Wiki to DB's syntax (and when to do it). Regardless of when we will update the entire wiki to this new syntax, I suggest we keep the new syntax on this page. The places where this syntax is used on this page are directly copied from DB's post, converting the syntax is extra work and just makes it inconsistent with its source. So please do NOT edit/revert edits regarding the syntax of commands back to the wiki syntax. Instead, post your opinion and reasoning here first. We don't want to start edit wars over the syntax. --Pepijn (talk) 20:58, 11 August 2017 (UTC)

Link to 1.14[]

There used to be a small section on the planned versions page that said that 1.14 might include survival changes. It is now removed from the page, but there is still a link from 1.13 to the planned versions page, specifically the 1.14 section that no longer exists. Should the link be removed?

 Support Kagenari Nagumo (talk) 13:21, 22 August 2017 (UTC)
 Done. Makes no sense to keep a link to a useless redirect. --Pepijn (talk) 13:26, 22 August 2017 (UTC)

there should be a page 1.14. [1] Currently this takes you to [2] Hrbmn743 (talk) 22:51, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

No. That version has not been announced yet, hence why it redirects currently. When there is an anouncement, the page could be created if there'd be content for it. – Jack McKalling [ Book and Quill JE2 BE2.png Diamond Pickaxe JE3 BE3.png ] 23:00, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

Texture changes[]

So it was finally confirmed that the texture changes were not going to happen in 1.13 (most people already had a feeling this wouldn't happen, but it was never confirmed by Mojang). I suggest we remove the information about the textures (text and images) from here since they have nothing to do with 1.13.  Done by BDJP007301. --Pepijn (talk) 10:43, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

Since the texture update is between 1.13.1 and 1.14 this might happen in 1.13.2 –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Hrbmn743 (talkcontribs) at 22:40, 29 July 2018‎ (UTC). Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Shorthand values for commands[]

I, for one, believe these should be kept for ease of use. Any mention on the reasoning behind the planned removal? Superjedi224 (talk) 19:50, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Out of the scope of this wiki, but shorthand notations are ambiguous (which is bad practice). Tab completion is a thing, so there's no need to type out the whole word in most cases anyway. --Pepijn (talk) 22:14, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Repeat Execute Chat Spam[]

Is there a way to stop the chat from getting spammed when using execute in a repeating command block?

--MCweb 19:40, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

There are two gamerules that you have to activate. The gamerule CommandBlockOutput stops them from spamming the chat. However, it will still spam the logs. Use the gamerule LogAdminCommands to stop that from happening. Hope that helps!
Gregatron6000 (talk) 20:42, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
However, there is currently a bug (https://bugs.mojang.com/browse/MC-121783) preventing gamerules from being changed via /gamerule. An NBT editor is required to change gamerules in level.dat, or waiting for the next snapshot for the bug to be fixed. Skylinerw (talk) 20:46, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
That’s a really odd bug. I haven’t been playing in the snapshots, so sorry for the irrelevant information.
NBTExplorer is a really good NBT editor. I personally don’t use it unless I’m trying to build an iron farm, to verify how many villages I have.
Gregatron6000 (talk) 02:46, 13 November 2017 (UTC)

Listing name/id changes on this page[]

I personally think we should at least list the name and id changes on this page. Maybe we could set up a table to help with organization? -PancakeIdentity (talk) 18:52, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

That is in 1.13/Flattening, which is linked on this page. Listing all changes that are part of the flattening is too much for this page, where you may want to just look through the overal changes FVbico (talk) 19:24, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

The flattening[]

Stop repeating, misplacing, splitting up and deleting information. Some examples: We do not need to list here that golden apples have been split up, that falls under the flattening which is already linked; We do not need to have one individual subsection for trapdoors, buttons etc just to tell they ALL got the other wood variants; The bark blocks got split up (which falls under the flattening), the block form of bark has no changes besides this. the ITEM form of the bark block was added, so it falls under item additions. --Pepijn (talk) 11:33, 27 November 2017 (UTC)

Please consider addressing others with a little more courtesy, in your edit summaries. The practice of making the version page a comprehensive change log is a long standing one, and if we have recently decided otherwise with respect to the flattening page, we don't need to assume incompetence or malice. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 12:20, 27 November 2017 (UTC)
Unrelated to this talk page, take it to me personally on my talk page if you have a problem with something. --Pepijn (talk) 12:44, 27 November 2017 (UTC)
I view the Flattening subpage as a necessary diversion from our normal practice, owing to the sheer length of changes. That being said, I'm surprised I haven't seen anyone suggesting to include it on the version page in a collapsible element yet (though note I'm not making that suggestion myself; I personally don't like hiding article content in collapsible sections). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 17:47, 27 November 2017 (UTC)
I think part of the problem is that some changes (especially name changes) aren't obvious that they would be on that page. And even if it was, it's still hard to find all the name changes there. This might be better for that page, but I think it might need some better organization. -PancakeIdentity (talk) 22:11, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
Maybe, we could arrange the blocks/items by the order in which they appear in the Creative Mode inventory. So, we have blocks, then decoration, then redstone, etc. “Flattened” blocks that are not in the Creative Menu can be listed after all of these, sorted by ID. By doing this, we can also split the page into separate sections, making it easier to edit and view.
Gregatron6000 (talk) 00:01, 29 November 2017 (UTC)
That page is already ordered based on the creative inventory, but the search tab. Any blocks without item form are on the place where the closest item is (eg pumpkin stems at the pumpkin seeds place). The only way to make it easier to find stuff is by making the lists collapseable, which seems unnecessary because you can just click on the link in the table on contents (and already collapse the contents on mobile). Anyway, this is more a topic to be discussed on the flattening’s talk page. FVbico (talk) 07:25, 1 December 2017 (UTC)

Minor issue[]

I can't do this because the page is semi-protected, but can someone clarify that the execute store into nbt doesn't work on players?

-- 23:08, 30 December 2017 (UTC)
 Done --Pepijn (talk) 12:34, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

how to use score value in command axis selectors?[]

/scoreboard objectives add myobj dummy MyObj

/scoreboard players set @a myobj 5

then somehow use that in command

/tp @a ~ ~(myobj here) ~


/fill 0 0 0 5 (myobj here) 5 dirt

how do i do that or something similar? -- 15:27, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

You can't. And the wiki is not the place to ask. --Pepijn (talk) 15:54, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Vines update[]

I have already created this as a topic for the [[Talk:1.13/Development versions]] page. I noticed on the 1.13 page that it said "vines can now be placed on the bottom of blocks", but it didn't say this on any of the snapshot pages for 1.13. I tested this in game on the latest snapshot, and indeed, unlike for 1.12.2, vines are able to be placed on the bottom of blocks. Does anybody know what snapshot this feature was added in? --Madminecrafter12 (talk) 16:52, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

I can't tell if this is either the same or a related issue, but both the vines below non-solid blocks and vines on corners of blocks bugs were fixed in 17w47a. The latter is not listed, but according to mod FVbico it was fixed earlier than the stated 17w50a. – Jack McKalling [ Book and Quill JE2 BE2.png Diamond Pickaxe JE3 BE3.png ] 17:31, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
It was done during the flattening, so 17w47a. I added it to that page. --Pepijn (talk) 17:42, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
Thank you.--Madminecrafter12 (talk) 00:30, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Planned release date may be earlier than Q2 2018, i.e. Q1 2018[]

Minecraft: Java Edition 1.14 will be released on Q2 2018, so 1.13 should be released on Q1 2018. What do you think about this? Haydkenmutthew (talk) 11:10, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

1.13 will indeed be released before the 1.14 snapshots start but since Q2 is a pretty large time frame, 1.13 might also be released during the beginning of Q2. All in all, this does not give us a release date we can put on the page. --Pepijn (talk) 11:33, 15 January 2018 (UTC)

1.13 released last week. After 1.14 plan. Q3 2018 Hrbmn743 (talk) 22:58, 29 July 2018 (UTC)

Mention of former name[]

Should there be mention that this update was originally called Technically Updated before being changed to The Update Aquatic?Slscool (talk) 22:28, 24 January 2018 (UTC)

No. ‘’Technically Updated’’ is the name for update 1.13. ‘’The Update Aquatic’’ is the name for update 1.14. I fixed that in the main page.
Gregatron6000 (talk) 01:48, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Gegatron6000, you must not have heard. The 1.13 and 1.14 updates were merged into one. -EatingSilencerforBreakfast (talk) 01:58, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
I think it should be mentioned somewhere to alleviate confusion for those who haven't realized that the two updates were merged. (Edit: I've added a small mention in the introduction.) -Sonicwave (talk|edits) 03:43, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

A question[]

What does "retro generate" mean? --Beans1512 Talk / Contribs 12:05, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

It means that in a world with previously generated ocean, those ocean chunks will not generate the new content. The new ocean content will only generate in oceans generated 1.13+.--Pepijn (talk) 12:39, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the information. --Beans1512 Talk / Contribs 09:05, 26 January 2018 (UTC)


Because the 1.13 page has a gallery section, should we move the shipwreck and iceberg images to gallery? The reason for this is because all of the features that were originally planned for 1.13, such as the new commands and possible new smelting recipe book, are in the gallery section, rather than in the Additions or Changes section where they are mentioned in the article.--Madminecrafter12 (talk) 15:11, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

It has been done. If there are any objections, please discuss here. Depending on the response of the community, I may move the images back to where they previously were.--Madminecrafter12 (talk) 15:09, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

I can't launch 1.13 snapshots.[] 07:39, 25 February 2018 (UTC), please go to the forum for support. Skylord wars (talk) 08:19, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

Add Red "Version Exclusive" tag before the 1.13 exclusive features.[]

Just like this:

  • Version exclusive: FS (Fullscreen) Resolution
    • Is used to change the resolution.
  • Version exclusive: An option in chat settings to toggle automatic command suggestions (defaults on, otherwise hit tab to bring them up).
  • Version exclusive: Options when editing a world to make a backup and open the backups folder.

--HaydKenMutthew Talk 02:52, 1 April 2018 (UTC)


1.13 is stupid. Every time I break a block in survival, it reappears and stays for a long time, then disappears and turns into a dropped item.-- 00:11, 14 April 2018 (UTC) i would recommend expressing opinions like this somewhere like the minecraft forums, but as a side note it is probably your hardware not the snapshot. -jjlr (talk) 00:28, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Planned feature contains a source from bedrock[]

Since this is about 1.13 (Java edition) should it have a planned feature listed with a source that is a stream discussing bedrock edition? -jjlr (talk) 00:35, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

MinecraftPhotos4U, since you added the feature, do you have a good justification for this? Unless they specifically mentioned it as something that would be added to both versions, this feature should be moved to the BE version of Update Aquatic, or the main page for Update Aquatic with {{only|bedrock}} applied. Since water functions differently in the the two versions (fully liquid in BE, waterlogging in Java), it stands to reason that lava will function differently as well. For all we know, Java might not get "lavalogging" at all. - Princess Nightmoon (TalkContributions) 07:18, 14 April 2018 (UTC)

Fluids tag used or not?[]

In Morenohijazo's recent edit he added that the fluids tag is currently not used, but then stated that is used by lava and water. So what's the truth? david92003 (talk) 12:43, 13 May 2018 (UTC)

The tag is indeed not actually used yet, but the meaning of said phrasing was that both lava and water blocks are included in the tag. The phrasing was modified in the next edit to clarify this. – Jack McKalling [ Book and Quill JE2 BE2.png Diamond Pickaxe JE3 BE3.png ] 11:03, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

1.13 release date now[]

Minecraft china mensaje, At the beginning of the summer vacation on July 6, the Adventurers of "My World" Mobile Games can experience the new underwater world on their mobile phones, and the PC version of the small partners do not have to worry too much in July. On the 10th, the "My World" PC version will also usher in fresh new ocean updates.

@Angelwanderley: Do you have any source to confirm this? If a Mojang dev tweeted or posted in Reddit or on their website, confirming that it will be released on July 10, by all means link to it and we'll add it back to the page with the proper source, but if you're just making this up, we can't add it to the article.-- Madminecrafter12Orange Glazed Terracotta JE2 BE2.pngTalk to meLight Blue Glazed Terracotta JE1 BE1.png 14:24, 24 June 2018 (UTC)
I believe Angelwanderley gained the information from [3]. The Java edition in china will be getting the update on July 10. So ths date for Update Aquatic should be very soon. skylord_wars (talk) 15:03, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

No need to apologize - the source that Skylord provided is a bit confusing, and makes it seem kind of like the Update Aquatic might be for all editions that day.

Quick Question![]

may I redirect the "nextparent=" on all of the 1.13 snapshots and previews pages to 1.13? I already done some of this with the first couple of snapshots, and wanted to make sure I was good to go —Whatausername64 (talk) 07:18, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

No, you shouldn't. The 1.13 version isn't released yet, so you shouldn't link to it in the version navigation IMO. I've reverted it for now, but you can reinstate the nextparent later. On another note, please don't expand the 1.12.x to 1.12.2. We deliberately use the wildcard to make sure it will link to the last one of that major release, in case after 1.13 in this example, another release is made for 1.12. – Jack McKalling [ Book and Quill JE2 BE2.png Diamond Pickaxe JE3 BE3.png ] 08:13, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

Bark or wood?[]

I've seen that the "Bark" entry here has just been renamed to "Wood". It's technically right, since the item is indeed named "Wood". However, as the wiki is now, that link is pointing to the wrong page. I'm not sure what would be the best thing, whether to rename it back to "Bark" (and change it once 1.13 is released and those pages are moved), or leave it as "Wood" but potholing it to "Bark". —Morenohijazo (talk) 16:03, 15 July 2018 (UTC)

They fixed MC-133797 and MC-133863, and presumably also they changed the version name constant. Oh, and they added some more translation messages related to optimizing the world: see burger. That probably accounts for it... --Pokechu22 (talk) 15:56, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

I lost my world[]

After the update completed, I tried to log onto my favorite single player world, and then the command blocks didnt work.

Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Though this is not a helpdesk, I'd like to point out that if you've used the 'Optimize World' option, the changes made to all data are irreversible (and thus cause an error when loading in a previous world). This works as intended. You should've made a backup in cases like these. —DarkShadowTNT (t ♦ c) 19:47, 19 July 2018 (UTC)
Did you press "Make Backup" or "I know what I'm doing"? If the former, unpack the backup and repair the command blocks in 1.13. the syntax of the commands have changed. Kumasasa (talk) 19:51, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

JSON text components[]

JSON text components are now used in: objective display names, team display names and NBT {CustomName:} (for blocks, items, entities, and block entities)

Given that they're so widespread, it seems like it would be worth creating a new page describing where/how they are used. skylinerw has a great resource about them here, but it's not updated for 1.13 and probably has more information than a wiki page should have. –Preceding unsigned comment was added by Fugu (talkcontribs) at 22:38, 20 July 2018 (UTC).

Yes, most updates are released as snapshots before they get fully released. 15:22, 21 July 2018 (UTC)
