We’re now more than halfway through May and Mojang seems to be pushing some final changes before release. This update is another small one but has some pretty great changes as well as a ton of bug fixes. Let’s check out some of the new changes!
New Features in 20w20b
Added new Game Mode Switcher debug menu
Added new Nether Advancements
Game Mode Switcher
New F3 debug feature which allows you to switch game modes with traditional “tabbing” functionality.
Hold F3 and tap F4 to open the menu
Tapping F4 will cycle the game mode, or you can use the mouse
Release F3 to apply
Your last game mode is remembered and will be the first selected option, so you can quickly toggle between two game modes with a single press of F3 + F4!
F3 + N (TOGGLE SPECTATOR)
A small change has been made to this debug combination.
By default, using this key would return to Creative after toggling from Spectator. It now will toggle back to the previous game mode you had
As an example, if you were in Survival, then toggled to Spectator and back, you would be set back to Survival
