The time to Trails & Tales grows shorter by the day, but did you know its features are already available for play? Today we explore Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W14A alongside how you too can hop into the game!

Details and Adjustments

Alongside all the features released in previous Minecraft 1.20 snapshots, snapshot 23W14A includes adjustments to sculk blocks, enchanting tables, and desert temples. More details on each in our highlights below!
Sculk Blocks
  • Waterlogged Sculk Shriekers Are Now Silent
  • Calibrated & Non-Calibrated Sculk Sensors Strongly Power the Block Beneath It
  • Calibrated Sculk Sensors Active Cooldown Reduced From 2 to 1 Second
  • Calibrated Sculk Sensors Now Detect Vibrations From up to 16 Blocks Away
Sculk blocks are getting a ton of love in preparation for release day! In addition to the changes above, players can expect even more consistency from the vibration-detecting sculk blocks thanks to updated outputs and improvements to receiving redstone signals.
  • Replaceable Blocks No Longer Block Bookshelves & Enchanting Tables
How many times has your enchanting room table been unknowingly sabotaged? Well, replaceable blocks are no longer a problem as of today! Quality of life adjustments are always a welcome change.
Desert Temples
  • The Hidden Room is Now Easier to Locate
  • Suspicious Sand Guaranteed to Generate on Top Layer
The hidden room in desert temples now generates with more of it’s roof collapsed and suspicious sand at the top. Perhaps their play tests revealed players were having trouble finding them?
New Java Edition Icons

  • Java Edition Launcher Icon Updated
  • Java Edition Snapshot Icon Updated
The updated art looks much smoother! What are your thoughts on the adjustments Mojang made?

How to Install Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W14A

Minecraft Snapshot Installation In Java Edition, installing Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W14A 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 23W14A Servers

Minecraft Bisecthosting Interested in trying Minecraft 1.20 with friends? Snapshot 23W14A 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.
