Minecraft undoubtedly is a phenomenon in the game industry. The game is certainly on track to complete its second decade of success. Through its story, it received a set of updates, improvements, and distinct spinoffs that differ from the base block-building/survival genre. Despite this, the classic game still stands as one of the favorite choices for players. That’s no surprise to see Microsoft/Mojang rolling out updates for it, the so-called “snapshots”. Today, there is a new snapshot for the game and it brings a surprising fix for an 11-year-old bug.
Minecraft fixes the MC-1133 issue
Usually, most of the updates come to fix/tweak smithing, squishing a few bugs, tweaking a few parameters and etc. However, the update goes beyond that as Minecraft states that it has finally managed to deal with a bug that was spotted 11 years ago.
The bug in question is dubbed “MC-1133”. This particular issue prevented players from hearing footsteps when their avatar got too close to the edge of a block in Minecraft. The game messed up with the avatar’s relative position. For instance, it thought it was somehow in mid-air rather than on solid ground. Now, Mojant states that the MC-1133 bug is finally squashed.

The patch notes are the following:
- Walking on a block will now always play a step sound
- It was previously not the case if you were walking along the edge of a block with air or fluid beside it
- Walking on the ocean floor will produce a step sound for the block you are walking on at a lower volume and pitch
It was a tough fight, but apparently, the MC-1133 is finally done for Minecraft. In addition to the bug, there are more things in this snapshot. For instance, players no longer need a smithing template in the template shot. Also, the jukebox has been added to the Redstone Blocks creative tab. It also contains this note about Adventure mode: “Read the power signal of a Chiseled Bookshelf using a Comparator.”
Interestingly, Minecraft has been stealing the headlines and this has not to do with gameplay or streams. In fact, some military secrets have leaked on Discord relating to the game. This is not the first time we see something like this happening with a game. However, Minecraft is able to get much more attention than some indie games doing the same.
