SNAPSHOT 20w11a IS OUT
In this snapshot you can be on your merry way across the beautiful Soulsand Valleys with your freshly enchanted boots. It's a bit scary to be fair, so these boots will help you out with that bit...
(Spoilering because it's long and doesn't look like change has been implemented yet)
NEW FEATURES IN 20W11A
Redstone is one of the coolest things in Minecraft and many of you are members of communities that focus on building mind-blowing redstone contraptions, farms, computing machines and 256x256 piston doors.
A lot of redstone behaviour is currently categorized as “undefined”. This is when the behaviour of the block is not the result of intentional code but is a side-effect of unaccounted edge cases or quirks in the game code.
We know that many players consider undefined behaviour as a very interesting aspect of redstone and enjoy experimenting with and using undefined behaviour to build unique contraptions to share with the rest of the community.
However, the quirks of undefined behaviour can be quite surprising - even when building simple contraptions. This quirkiness can be a negative experience for players new to redstone and may turn them away from this very unique and exciting aspect of Minecraft as well as the vast redstone community behind it.
Our goal is to bring all redstone components up to a level of quality that we are happy with and we will be making adjustments where it makes the most sense for redstone going forward.
Any changes we make will be communicated in the snapshot changelogs and as always we will be reading your feedback and comments. If you have any immediate feedback regarding redstone then please make a post on the feedback website.
Added Soul Speed enchantment
Added Twisting Vines that grow upwards
Nether gold ore can now be found in the nether - it is just like gold ore, but more Nether-y
Never suffer again drudging through Soul Sand Valleys - Soul Speed has you covered!
Shine your boots of choice with this soul-sucking enchantment to speed around on Soul Sand and Soul Soil!
There's a downside, however: enchantments will slowly degrade your boots each Soul block you walk on
Can only be obtained by bartering with those pesky Piglins
CHANGES IN 20W11A
Bone meal can now be used to grow kelp, weeping vines and twisting vines
Hoes are now the appropriate tools for mining Hay, Targets, Dried Kelp Blocks, Shroomlights, Nether Wart Blocks and Warped Wart Blocks
Doors, rails, buttons, pressure plates, redstone and more can now be placed on soulsand and full-block of snow layers
Soul sand with a rail on top will no longer slow-down minecarts
TNT and Campfires will now ignite when hit by any burning projectile
Bell blocks will now ring when hit by any projectile
TECHNICAL CHANGES IN 20W11A
minecraft:soul_speed_blocks is any block that the Soul Speed enchantment increases speed on
New particle type: soul
