Affects Version/s: Minecraft 14w32d, Minecraft 1.8
Fix Version/s: None
Environment:64-bit java 7 running on Ubuntu Linux 14.04
What I expected to happen was:
using /blockdata or /setblock I tried to create a spawner which spawned "Item"
What actually happened was:
Minecraft crashed with a complaint about rendering entities in the world.
Steps to reproduce:
1: log into 14w32d or later
2: start a new world
3: using /blockdata or /setblock, attempt to set the EntityId tag of a mob spawner to "Item"
4: enjoy as minecraft repeatedly crashes upon loading the world.
I originally attempted to create a mob spawner for an adventure map on a world I'd done a lot of work on. When I created this mob spawner, minecraft crashed and continued to do so upon loading the world. I was lucky and was able to destroy the mob spawner after logging in, just before crashing.
