Episode 96: Minecraft 1.17, The Tier List The Withering Effect – Minecraft Podcast

Summary

In this episode, DuDs and Jimbo discuss snapshot, 21w20a, for Minecraft 1.17, which actually makes Geodes rarer this time, tilling Rooted Dirt with a Hoe will now convert it into Dirt; popping out a Hanging Roots item, Axolotls will now only play dead when in water and Llamas no longer spit at players in peaceful mode. Plus, this snapshot also adds a new NBT tag for entities “HasVisualFire”, which will cause the entity to visually appear on fire, even if they are not actually on fire. Also, DuDs and Jimbo set out their Tier List for the new blocks, mobs and features of 1.17, and we have three questions from ESpeedyD in listener comments.

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.
