Minecraft PC: new snapshot update addresses fire hazards, full changelog inside

Minecraft developer Mojang is aware that fire can really ruin your day if it's unchecked, so the game's new PC snapshot gives you more of a fighting chance when blazes erupt. We've got the full changelog for the new update here.

The above video is a frank, but hilarious lesson regarding the ills of playing pyromancer in Mojang's world. Let it be a warning to all the fire-starters out there. You'll be happy to know that cauldrons can now be used to douse any rogue flames that happen to stray from the source.

Mojang's new snapshot update is available now, and was spotted by PCGamesN. It goes as follows:

  • Added /setworldspawn and /setworldspawn to set the world’s default spawn point
  • Maps in item frames now display the item frame again, but still on a full block scale
  • Jukeboxes now loop
  • Changed the texture for pufferfish
