Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W05A – Armor Trims, World Creation, & More

Posted on by amber
The feedback on armor trims has been almost universally positive, creating much-needed excitement for update 1.20. However, no new feature is without a few bumps! Today we look at snapshot 23W05A, including the adjustments made to armor trims and the changes to Minecraft 1.20 world creation.

Details and Adjustments

Alongside all the features shown during Minecraft live and those added in the snapshots since, snapshot 23W05A includes adjustments to the smithing overhaul, a valuable new item interaction, and changes to world creation. More details on each below!
Smithing Adjustments
  • Increased Template Generation
  • Leather Armor Trims Added
Smithing saw a ton of balancing in this snapshot! Dune, coast, wild, and sentry now include two templates when found, netherite armor upgrade templates were made twice as common, and one eye trim template is now guaranteed in each stronghold library.
World Creation Updates
  • Reworked World Creation UI
The UI for creating new worlds has seen an overhaul this time around! Now divided into three tabs called “Game,” “World,” and “More,” world creation has never been easier.
Gameplay Adjustments
  • Elytra Interaction
Previously exclusive to Bedrock Edition, players can now interact with elytra held in hand to equip it automatically. This allows quick switching between armor and elytra without opening one’s inventory.

How to Install Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W05A

Minecraft Allay In Java Edition, installing Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W05A is done right from the Minecraft client. Players need only open up the Minecraft Launcher and enable snapshots in the ‘Installations’ tab. From there, click “New Installation,” select “Latest Snapshot” in the drop-down menu, and click create. Your new Minecraft 1.20 snapshot installation will now be a selectable option before clicking play. However, Minecraft 1.20 snapshots have a few extra steps. Once in the game, click “Create New World,” then select “Datapacks,” and enable the built-in “bundle” and “update_1_20” datapacks before clicking “Create New World” again. Finally, with the new world made, all that’s left is to select it and click play! Please note snapshots and pre-releases can corrupt worlds! Ensure backups have been taken.

How to make Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W05A Servers

BisectHosting Logo Interested in trying out the smithing adjustments with friends? Snapshot servers can be created for free through home hosting, but we recommend paid hosting options for ease of use and performance. Especially with snapshots since they can be buggy! Paid hosting is offered here at BisectHosting and many other places around the web. In either case, no less than 4GB of server RAM is recommended.
