Minecraft 1.18 Snapshot Server Jar

The most ambitious Minecraft updates could be the Caves and Cliff Update ranks. However, the developer of the game called Mojang Studios is on process to make sure the players to get the good experience they deserve.

Mojang Studios released the pre-release snapshots. A while ago, the Minecraft Java Edition 1.18 pre-release 3 was released, which are presented for people to get rid of bugs and the other issues. One of the things included in this pre-release snapshot is technical changes. With this pre-release snapshot, now you will be able to star the server.jar with an empty bundlerMainClass by just validating and extracting files and then choosing exit.

Aside from that, the Minecraft Java Edition 1.18 pre-release 3 also includes some fixed bugs, including:

    • MC-109260: Full-width punctuation characters are not shown well.
    • MC-185263: Non full chunks in cache memory semi-leak.
