You don’t want to run the snapshots on an existing world if you don’t want to run into chunk errors. There is a known issue with world structures such as Nether Fortresses not transitioning to 1.7 from 1.6, but we will be bringing out a 1.6.3 shortly to fix this.
To get snapshots, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “snapshots” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots” and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher.
I just found out that if you use flint and steal on a creeper it will blow up. Just like that. It will set it off so it just blows up.
It was also in the previous snapshot but not in 1.6.2. So it is a new feature for 1.7. Didn't see anyone mention it before.
i did not know this and yes its a new feature, alot of possibilities with this feature (traps...)
Be advised if you have a json stats file from a previous save, it may crash the game when you try to view your statistics. I deleted my json file and it works fine.
The new portals look cool! It's too bad they don't create equivalently huge portals in the nether. It's pretty funny wallking into a massive portal in the overworld and exiting a tiny sized one in the nether (:
