Episode 95: Sculk Sensors, Bundles and Candles The Withering Effect – Minecraft Podcast

Summary

In this episode, DuDs and Jimbo discuss snapshot, 21w19a, for Minecraft 1.17, which removes unfinished items (Sculk Sensor, Bundles, and Candles) from the creative inventory along with their (Bundles and Candles) crafting recipes. Plus, the snapshot also updates the game to Java 16 and increases the maximum length of item names in the anvil UI from 35 to 50 characters. Also, DuDs and Jimbo explain what they like and don’t like about the decision to split the Caves and Cliffs update into 1.17 and 1.18, and we have an update on The Bet from last week.

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. This snapshot also has a number of technical changes including moving the game to the OpenGL 3.2 core profile. 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?
