Well, I am yet to see any 1.5 snapshots thread yet, I thought that I would take the (hopefully) honours! (So long as Chickeneer doesn't want to do one lol)Snapshots so Far13wo1a (look below)13w01b13wo2a13w02b13w03a13w04aBut anyway, here goes .....Snapshot 13w01aComparatorsThey give off a redstone signal based on if one input is greater than or equal to another.For more information, check out Dinnerbone's explanation here.Daylight Detector BlocksSimple enough really, they give off a redstone when it's day.Doesn't when it's night.They also give of a weaker signal as the day goes by.(Lower light level=lower signal)Hopper BlocksStill marked as "Work in Progress" (it has no sprite in the inventory).When placed over a chest, furnace, dispenser or brewing stand any items dropped into it will be put into the item below.They can also be used to take items in and out of chest minecarts! Trapped ChestsAnother redstone addition, these give off a redstone signal whenever opened.The signal given off only has a strength of 1, however, so repeaters will probably be needed.(Increases as more people are looking in the chest)Also, they do not combine with normal chests, allowing for more compact and efficient storage systems.Weighted Pressure PlatesSpecial type of plates that only activate when items are dropped on them.Increase in signal strength as more items are dropped on them.Max strength at 60 and 600 respectively.Block of RedstoneA craftable block that essentially acts as a pushable redstone torch.Giving off a full redstone signal.Nether Quartz OreFound in the nether, drops nether Quartz when mined.Nether QuartzUsed to craft Comparators and Daylight Detectors.Nether Bricks ItemCrafted from smelting netherrack in a furnace.Can then be crafted into the now named Nether Brick blocks.For a more detailed look into some of the features, be sure to check out this video.With thanks to Terminator908 for showing this.
