Details and Adjustments

Alongside all the features found in previous Minecraft 1.20 snapshots, snapshot 23W17A includes further adjustments to sculk sensors, a music disc, new ambient music, and a bundle of advancements for players to obtain. More details on each in our highlights below!
Sculk Sensors

  • Cooldown Phase Lasts 10 Ticks
Sculk Sensors now have three distinct phases. Inactive refers to when they are waiting for a vibration, active refers to when they sense a vibration and begin emitting a redstone signal, and cooldown is a mandatory inactive period before the cycle can begin anew.
New Ambient Music
  • A Familiar Room
  • Bromeliad
  • Crescent Dunes
  • Echo in the Wind
Four new tracks can be found in specific biomes throughout the game. Check out Cherry Groves, Desert, Jungle, Badlands, and Flower Forest biomes to hear them!
New Items

How to Install Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W17A

Minecraft Snapshot Installation In Java Edition, installing Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W17A 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.

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.

Snapshot 23W17A 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.
