The version number of this update is 1.10. It is currently listed on the bug tracker as "Future Version - 1.10+",[1] and this version has been referred to as 1.10 by Minecraft developers Erik Broes (Grum)[2], Nathan Adams (Dinnerbone)[3], Jens Bergensten (Jeb)[4] and Michael Stoyke (Searge).[5]



Splash text
  • "Rule #1: it's never my fault"
  • "Replaced molten cheese with blood?"
  • "Absolutely fixed relatively broken coordinates"
  • "Boats FTW"
Sound events
  • block.enchantment_table.use
  • entity.polar_bear.ambient
  • entity.polar_bear.baby_ambient
  • entity.polar_bear.death
  • entity.polar_bear.hurt
  • entity.polar_bear.step
  • entity.polar_bear.warning
  • A new 'Auto-jump' toggle has been added, which automatically makes the player jump when running towards a one block tall obstacle.
    • Enabled by default, can be disabled in Options.
Loot tables
  • A new tag limit for the looting_enchant function.
    • It determines the maximum amount the player can expect to receive on mob drops when using the looting enchantment of any level.
  • A new fallingdust particle has been added.
    • Appears underneath gravity-affected blocks that generate, or have been placed with use of bugs, suspended in midair.
    • It sometimes appears whenever a gravity-affected block is placed without a support block below.
    • Does not apply to dragon eggs.
    • fallingdust can be summoned, making use of the params argument like blockcrack and several other particles do.
      • example: /particle fallingdust ~ ~ ~ 0 0 0 0 1 0 @p 10 will summon a particle matching the color of lava (block 10)
NBT tags
  • FallFlying tag
    • Allows mobs to use elytra when they fall
      • Mobs loose ability to fly after touching the ground
  • ZombieType: Determines the kind of zombie a specific zombie is.
    • 0: default, 1-5: villager, 6: husk.
    • This tag, in effect, unifies the characteristics of being a zombie, a specific zombie villager and a husk into a single variable.
    • Intended to replace the IsVillager and VillagerProfession tags.
      • These tags are kept for backwards compatibility, but no newly generated entities have them.
Debug screen
  • F3 + G toggles the visibility of chunk borders around the player.
    • Everytime it is toggled, a message in chat appears.
    • It shows a blue outline for the chunk the player is currently in and a yellow outline for individual air blocks in the vicinity of the chunk.
      • The blue outline in particular, will outline the chunk horizontally on top of the solid blocks on the ground.
      • The outlines extended arbitrarily up, but end at bedrock level.

World generation

  • Generates 15–24 blocks underground in deserts, swampland, and their M and hills variants. Each chunk has a 164 chance of generating a fossil.
  • Composed of bone blocks and some coal ore, arranged as to resemble the skulls and spines of giant extinct creatures.
    • There are 4 variants of the skull, and 4 variants of the spine sections.


Structure void
  • It is an intangible block used to indicate to the structure blocks that certain air blocks can be overridden by previously existing blocks in the destination.
    • Intended to be a replacement for the function barrier blocks used to convey (during early development), so they can form part of the structure itself.
  • They are invisible and have a small hitbox.
    • They are only visible when they are inside a structure being saved by a save structure blocks and the toggle option "show invisible blocks" is true.
  • Allows for empty spaces in a structure.
    • Unlike air, it will not overwrite blocks where it is loaded.
    • Example: If you load a 2 block high structure with air at the top and a structure void at the bottom into a 2 block high area of stone, the top block will become air but the bottom will stay stone.
Magma block
  • Found in the Nether, generating 4 veins per chunk between Y=27 and Y=36.
  • Crafted using four magma cream.
  • Mobs and players take half a heart of damage every second while touching it, similar to a cactus.
    • Unlike cactus or fire, this block doesn't destroy items that touch it.
    • Mobs will not pathfind over Magma Blocks
  • If the player is sneaking, wearing Frost Walker-enchanted armor, or under the
    Fire Resistance
    effect, it does not take damage.
  • If the player dies by standing on it, a new death message will appear: "[Player] discovered floor was lava."
    • If the player dies by the block, but after being damaged by a mob or player, the death message will be: "[Player] walked into danger zone due to [Mob or Player]."
  • Removes water blocks on top when randomly ticked.
  • It produces smoke particles under the rain.
  • It emits as much light as it receives from other sources.
    • e.g. A magma block next to a torch will emit light at level 13, as that was the light level it received from the torch.
      • If the torch were to be removed then it will search for the next brightest source of light; if no source is found then it will continue to emit the same amount of light as the torch.
      • It can emit daylight if it was exposed to the sun.
Nether wart block
  • Crafted by filling a 3x3 square in the crafting table with nether wart.
  • It cannot be crafted back into nether wart.
  • It is broken by flowing water or lava, like most plants are.
  • It is better mined with an axe.
Red nether brick
Bone block
  • Crafted by filling a 3x3 square in the crafting table with Bone Meal.
  • Placing it in a crafting table yields 9 bone meal back.
  • Found underground in desert and swamps as part of the fossil structure.


Spawn eggs


Polar bear
  • Adults and children spawn randomly as passive mobs in Ice Plains, Ice Mountains, and Ice Plains Spikes.
  • When hit, the adults will attack you, the cubs will run away (very fast, similar to baby zombies).
    • Additionally, adults will always attack you when their cubs are around
  • Adults can swim faster in water than the player.
  • Cubs will follow their parents.
  • Drops 0–2 raw fish (75% chance) or 0–2 salmon (25% chance), each increased by 1 per level of Looting.
  • 80% of skeletons spawned above ground in Ice Plains, Ice Mountains, and Ice Plains Spikes biomes will be strays.
    • All spawns where the skeleton does not have a view of the sky will be normal skeletons.
    • Spiders spawned in cold biomes have a chance of having a stray riding them.
  • Acts mostly like a regular skeleton.
  • Its SkeletonType tag is 2.
  • Drops are the same as skeletons, but also have a 50% chance to drop 0-1 tipped arrow of
    when killed by the player. With looting, chance increases to 2×level+12×level+2.
  • Shoots Tipped Arrows of Slowness (0:30) at the target.
  • 80% of zombies spawned above ground in Desert, Desert Hills, and Desert M biomes will be Husks.
    • All spawns where the zombie does not have a view of the sky will be normal zombies or zombie villagers.
  • Behaves mostly like a regular zombie
  • Its ZombieType tag is 6.
  • Does not burn in sunlight.
  • Can spawn as a baby or as a chicken jockey.
  • Applies 7 seconds of hunger when attacking in Easy, 14 in Normal and 21 in Hard difficulty.
    • Hunger is only applied if the Husk has an empty hand.
  • Visually 2 pixels taller than a zombie, but has the same hitbox.



NBT tags
  • NoGravity now works for all entities, not only armor stands.
    • A mob in midair affected by it, will still respond to knockback by moving horizontally.
      • Although the AI will not permit any mob to move on their own, horses and pigs ridden by the player, will move normally.
        • Very similarly, boats in the air ridden by the player, will move as if they were in water.
  • /tp relative coordinates are now relative to the executor of the command, not the teleported entity.
    • /execute can be used to get the old behavior.
  • /tp can now teleport the player to a y-coordinate in the range -4096 to 4096 (increased from -512 to 512).
Huge mushrooms
  • Huge mushrooms have a 112 chance of generating twice as tall as normal.
    • These new mushrooms can appear during world generation or by being planted by the player.

World generation

Plains and Sunflower Plains
  • Now have some trees in 5% of its chunks (13 large oaks, 23 normal oaks).
Ice Plains, Ice Mountains, and Ice Plains Spikes
  • Have a lower chance of spawning passive mobs during world generation than other biomes (7% versus 10%).
Mesas, including all variants
  • Hardened clay and stained clay no longer generate more than 15 blocks deep, if the mesa is more than 15 blocks above sea level.
  • In addition to the normal 2 veins of gold ore below Y=32, attempts to generate 20 veins between Y=32 and Y=79.
  • Generate the new type of abandoned mineshafts, described below.
Abandoned mineshafts
  • New mineshaft type that generates in mesa biomes (including all variants).
    • Placed so that the midpoint of the structure is near sea level, rather than so that the top is 10 blocks or more below sea level.
    • Uses dark oak wood for wooden structures.
    • New NBT tag MST on mineshaft structure pieces to indicate the type. 0 is the traditional mineshaft, 1 is the new mesa mineshaft.
  • Features generate differently if above ground (i.e. the sky light where they generate is 8 or more). This is not dependent on mineshaft type.
    • Cave spider spawners no longer generate if sky light is 8 or more.
    • Various wooden pieces no longer generate if the block above is air and/or if sky light is 8 or more.
    • Rails in corridors are more complete if sky light is below 8.
      • 90%, versus 70% in 1.9 and in above-ground corridors.
  • Village structures are no longer restricted by biome boundaries.
    • Meaning that a village that starts in a valid biome can now spread into an adjacent invalid biome.
  • Now generate in taigas (but not variants).
    • They are made with spruce wood.
  • Savanna villages are now made with acacia wood instead of oak.
    • In savannas, acacia logs replace cobblestone in all structures except churches and blacksmiths.
  • Blacksmiths in desert villages now generate with cobblestone rather than sandstone near the lava.
  • Paths no longer generate below sea level, and in non-desert villages they are made with different material depending on the existing terrain.
    • If replacing grass blocks, the path is made from grass path blocks.
    • If replacing water or lava, the path is made from planks.
    • Otherwise, the path is gravel on top of cobblestone (including bridges across ravines).
    • Sandstone paths still always generate in desert villages
  • They have a 2% chance of being a zombie village.
  • No longer turn adjacent sand blocks in the ceiling into sandstone when generating.
End portals
  • Now replace any blocks inside the portal frame ring when activating.


Structure block
  • The intended purpose is revealed.
    • It is to allow the player to save and load different created structures in game, and offer a way to bundle such structures with the world.
  • Are now available in item form; can be given or summoned.
    • Similarly to command blocks, its placement, destruction and modification are restricted to opped players in creative.
  • Now comes with an integrated GUI and new textures.
  • The block still has four modes, but each has a completely different texture than the original.

    • Save, S - build structure in world, tell the block where it is and it saves it to file.

    • Load, L - loads saved structure files, replacing blocks with saved blocks except for structure void blocks.

    • Corner, C - for automatic size calculation.

    • Data, D - for chest markers and other blocks that require data (default).
  • Structures can be stored, bundled and loaded per world, in the "structures" folder
  • Structures are limited to a size of 32 blocks in each direction.

  • Can rotate and mirror structures before they are placed on the three axis.
  • L and S structure blocks can be activated by redstone.
  • Display a name tag above them indicating their mode and structure name.
  • By toggling the option to show invisible blocks in save blocks, air blocks and structure void blocks will be made visible.
    • Small blue cubes correspond to air blocks, red cubes correspond to structure void blocks (they are even smaller than the blue cubes).
  • The game protects against maps saving arbitrary amounts of data to disk.
End stone bricks
  • Are no longer craftable.
  • Can now equip shields onto entities.
Rails (all types)
  • Bounding box for ascending rails is a full block (formerly only 0.15625 tall).

Ender pearls
  • Can now teleport riders from their mounts.
Firework rocket
  • Recipe now produces three rockets rather than only one.

Magma cubes
  • Spawn about twice as often in the Nether.
    • The rate is now 2153, compared to 1151 before
  • No longer despawn.
  • The Zombie Generic Villager is removed, due to the new zombietype tag.

Planned changes

Numerical block IDs
  • Limit on the maximum number of block ids, will get removed.[6]
Block states
  • Can now be used in /setblock directly.[7]
    • e.g. to set down a block of blue wool, it will be /setblock <x> <y> <z> blue_wool instead of /setblock <x> <y> <z> minecraft:wool 11.[8]
