- Bamboo Excusive Block: Bamboo Mosaic
- Bamboo Exclusive Boat Re-Skin: Bamboo Rafts
How to Install the Minecraft 1.20 SnapshotIn Java Edition, installing the Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot is done right from the Minecraft client. To quote the previous official snapshot blogs, players need only “open up the Minecraft Launcher and enable snapshots in the ‘Installations’ tab.” Once done, click “New Installation,” select “Latest Snapshot” from the drop-down menu, and click create. Your new Minecraft 1.20 snapshot installation will now be a selectable option before clicking play. Once in game, click "Create New World," select "Datapacks," and enable the built in "bundle" and "update_1_20" datapacks before clicking "Create New World" again. Then, with the new world made, all that's left is selecting it and clicking play! But be warned! Snapshots and pre-releases can corrupt worlds! Ensure backups are regularly taken.
How to make Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot ServersInterested in trying out the new features 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.
Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot: How to Try Out the Latest UpdateThe first of many Minecraft 1.20 features are nearly here! We hope they are as fun as they seem and camels are as cute as they appear to be. Yet, we among many can’t help but wonder what future Minecraft 1.20 content still awaits us. Hopefully, the next snapshot will include the update’s name and theme! Until Next Time, BisectHosting =)
