Details and Adjustments

New Mobs
  • The Sniffer
The winner of Minecraft Live’s 2022 mob vote can now be found in the depths of oceans amongst the sea floor ruins! Loot their eggs, bring them to the surface, and watch them sniff out long-lost flowers.
New Biomes
  • Cherry Blossom Biome
Found in the mountains is a new biome of cherry trees called cherry blossom biomes. Here players can harvest pink petal blocks, pink flowers, and cherry wood, complete with its own unique wood set.
New Features
  • Archeology
Digging around desert temples may now reveal suspicious sand, a new block almost identical in appearance to regular sand. But with the new brush tool in hand, items inside can be revealed including pottery shards.

How to Install Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W07A

Sniffer in Cherry Blossom Biome Screenshot In Java Edition, installing Minecraft 1.20 Snapshot 23W07A 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 23W07A Servers

Cherry Wood House in Cherry Blossom Biome Screenshot Interested in exploring cherry blossom biomes with friends? Snapshot 23W07A 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.
