Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W06A – Commands, Game Rules, & More

Posted on by amber
After two content-filled snapshots, another has arrived, but this time with a focus on commands, game rules, and accessibility. All features, while small, that are great to see making it to live. Today we explore snapshot 23W06A and how you too can give it a try.

Details and Adjustments

Alongside the features showcased during Minecraft live and the snapshots added since, snapshot 23W06A includes the new damage command, the ability to adjust how damage affects one’s screen, and new game rules that will stop vines from being able to grow. More details on each below!
Block Adjustments
  • Add Jukebox Music Note Particles
Jukeboxes playing music now emit music note particles giving visual indication that the block is active. A small change, but another step closer to bedrock and java edition being the same!
New Commands
  • Damage
Those with OP can now use the damage command, which, as its name describes, damages specified entities. These can be players, mobs, or entities such as boats.
New Accessibility Settings
  • Damage Tilt
Players will now be able to adjust the camera shake that occurs when damaged. This setting may not seem helpful to most, but in high-end pvp, a still camera while aiming a bow could very well take the win home.
New Game Rule
  • doVineSpread
This nifty new command is long requested by those who enjoy using vines on their builds. No longer will vines grow downward forever or spread all over builds, increasing their creative value.

How to Install Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W06A

Minecraft Allay In Java Edition, installing Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W06A 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 23W06A Servers

BisectHosting Logo Interested in trying out the new damage commands 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.
