This article documents an April Fools' joke.
There is no actual 1.RV-Pre1 version of Minecraft in development.

On March 31, 2016, Mojang released a hoax announcement for 1.RV, also known as the Trendy Update.[1] 1.RV-Pre1 was the first and only pre-release for the joke update.

The version has since been removed from the launcher.

Items[edit | edit source]

Reality vision
  • Equipped via "helmet" armor slot
  • Shows a minimap in the bottom center of the screen (which moves when the player's camera moves).
    • Shows the chunks that are currently rendered.
    • Shows player location by a green beacon beam marker on the map.
  • Will make a sound whenever you equip it.
  • Displays vision overlay (similar to the pumpkin overlay).
    • The overlay will change to a new overlay if you go into third person (unlike the pumpkin overlay), making the screen appear like an old television screen.
    • The overlay is called cantseeshitcaptain.png in the assets folder.
  • Activates shader when equipped (scan_pincushion).
  • Signs display the text "OBEY" while glasses are equipped. This is a reference to the movie They Live.
Ankle Monitor
  • Equipped via the "boots" armor slot.
  • Will make a sound each time you get a notification.
  • When equipped in Survival mode, you can't take it off.
    • Can be taken off in Creative mode.
    • This behavior was later introduced into Minecraft in the 1.11 snapshot 16w39a, in the form of the Curse of Binding enchantment.[2]
  • Gives Slowness I effect .
  • Displays the text "CURFEW WARNING! You are violating your house arrest! Get back by X meters!" (where x is the distance) when equipped at nighttime upon moving too far from the world spawn.
  • When player travels to another dimension, it displays various messages from the monitor, in a special order.
    • For example: "CURFEW WARNING!" You are violating your house arrest! Uuuh... where are you, anyway?"
Smarter Watch
  • Equipped via the "off hand (shield)" slot
  • Shows the time above the hotbar where item tooltips are shown in human readable format (18:00, and 22:00 for example)
  • Will make a sound each time you get a notification.
  • Push notifications in the chat whenever a statistic reaches 10, 20, 30 ... 100, 200, 300 ... etc.
    • For example: "Notice! [Distance Flown] is now 600!"
    • Other messages are shown when you take damage and sometimes even shows item specific information in chat when you craft items.

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Mobs will now wear the new tech items in the "additions" section randomly.
    • When they wear the reality vision, they will not attack the player, even if the player attacks them.
      • However, Endermen with reality vision will still attack when looked at.
  • Signs have a unique texture in this version.
  • Sign text is now green.
  • Signs read "OBEY" while Reality Shades are equipped. This is a reference to the movie They Live.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Sounds are saved in minecraft/sounds/buzzwords/sound_name.ogg where "sound_name" is replaced with the actual name of the sound, example "equipvr.ogg".
  • The update was released before April 1st by the developers.
  • The overlay for the Reality Vision is called cantseeshitcaptain.png in the assets folder, (which is a reference to a popular meme from the TV show "Star Trek".)
  • The shader for the Reality Vision can be disabled by using F4.
