Episode 91: The Butter Beans update?

Episode 91: The Butter Beans update? The Withering Effect – Minecraft Podcast

Summary

In this episode, DuDs and Jimbo discuss the recent announcement from Mojang that the Caves and Cliffs update will be split into two. The first will be 1.17, which will be released in summer without the new world height or cave generation (although a datapack will be available); this update will include the Goat, Axolotl and Glow Squid along with the new blocks, items and ores. The second update, which will be known as 1.18, is planned for release around the holiday season and will include all the new generation of caves and cliffs. Unfortunately, archaeology will not be included in either of these updates and will be released at a later date. Plus, we have snapshot, 21w15a, for Minecraft 1.17, that allows the Goat to ram anything that moves, including armor stands, among many other changes. Also, we have listener comments from High Hopes, Beanman6649 and DirtyBlonde655 and a very topical Mending Minecraft.

Episode 86: Fishing with the Lightning Rod? The Withering Effect – Minecraft Podcast

Summary

In this episode, DuDs and Jimbo discuss snapshot, 21w10a, for Minecraft 1.17, that adds the Lush Caves underground biome (currently only in single-biome worlds), Cracked Deepslate Bricks, Cracked Deepslate Tiles and an Infested variant of Deepslate.

Also, the Overworld ore generation has been tweaked with more Emeralds in mountains, more Lapis, less Copper, Gold, and Redstone, smaller Diamond blobs, but slightly more frequent, less Diamond ore overall, less Iron, and it generates lower down and finally reduced air exposure for Coal. Plus, our Discord has been discussing the lack of Cliffs in the Caves and Cliffs update, we all agree the Mountains are gorgeous but where are the Cliffs?
