1.14, the first release of Village and Pillage,[1] is an upcoming major update to the Java Edition with a planned release date of early 2019.[2] It will focus mainly on villages, adding a new subset of illagers known as pillagers and redesigning village architecture to match the biome it is located in. This update also introduces many new blocks, revamps the crafting system, updates taiga biomes, adds a new bamboo forest jungle variant, and adds 4 new mobs.

Additions

Blocks

Bamboo
  • Can be found scattered around jungles and in large clusters in bamboo jungles.
  • Can be found in shipwrecks and jungle temples.
  • Dropped by pandas when killed, or can be obtained when fishing in jungle biomes.

  • Generate in village meeting points.
  • Have an associated block-entity placeholder.
  • Can be anchored to top and bottom block, as well as walls, with different texture for each.
    • Pop off as an item when the anchored block is destroyed or moved.

  • Cooks up to four food items, but 3 times slower than a furnace (30 seconds).
    • Right-click with food item to place food on campfire.
    • Food item pops off when cooked.
  • Emits a new type of particle, a smoke signal that can be seen from a longer distance than normal particles.
    • The particles can travel through 1–2 blocks.
    • Placing a hay bale below the campfire causes the smoke particles to stay longer and rise higher.

    • Some composted items will be consumed without adding a level. The chance a level will be added depends on the quality of the item: larger or crafted items have a higher chance of adding a layer when used (e.g. Kelp has a low chance of about 10%, while pumpkin pie has a chance of 100%).
