This week’s snapshot barely has any changes since last week. All I’ve done is to add a few multiplayer spam protections (to prevent packet spam and chat spam). I’ve also added a few new lines to the splash texts. You can get the JAR files here:
- Client: https://assets.minecraft.net/11w50a/minecraft.jar
- Server: https://assets.minecraft.net/11w50a/minecraft_server.jar
- (These JARs may still say 11w49a when you start them… It’s just a joke. Funny, eh? Haha…)
The reason why not so much has changed is because I’ve been busy with some Cobalt stuff, and reading tons and tons of emails (my inbox stream is finally starting to slow down a little). I’ve also been busy testing out different translation tools for the ingame languages. If you are interested in helping out with the translations, I suggest you try to locate the necessary information on the Minecraft forums. The reason why I’m not giving you a link here is because I don’t want to cause too much traffic to their servers ;)
I would also like to mention that I’ve received tremendous help from the Minecraft Coder Pack (MCP) team (https://mcp.ocean-labs.de/index.php/The_MCP_Team_). They’ve organized an email correspondence with translators, handled Googledoc language lists and also helped filling out the new tool with latest translations.
Also, obviously, a big thanks to all of you who has helped me out with the actual translation work. The clip below warmed my heart! <3
For the record: Currently Sheep eat both grass from grass blocks and from tallgrass. They will eat grass regardless if they have been sheared or not, but baby sheep will eat more often than old sheep.
