We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Additions[edit | edit source]

Changes[edit | edit source]

  • Sponge
    • Introduced sponge to Survival mode, with new behavior and looks
    • Sponge turns into wet sponge when it soaks up water
      • Water particles appear around the sponge when this happens
    • Sponge destroys water blocks from 5 blocks away in a kind of sphere
    • Sponge soaks up water only when water is touching it
  • Tall Grass + Double Tall Grass
    • Texture is now brighter
  • Redstone torches
    • No longer randomly fix themselves.
  • Cracked stone bricks
  • Commands
    • /scoreboard operation
      • Added three scoreboard operators: <, >, =
      • Can be tested with a comparator to see if two scores are greater than, smaller than or equal to each other
  • Player list
    • Player list shows the faces of players
  • Debug screen
    • F3 + B now also shows which direction entities are looking in using a blue line
  • Options
    • Anisotropic filtering has been removed
  • Signs
    • Use the JSON text components Text1, Text2, Text3, Text4 instead of plain text
    • Can be used to show scores towards players by using the selector and score tags
    • Previously, text formatting could only be accomplished using the section symbol via Formatting codes
    • Character limit is based on character width
    • Might need some time before it can work in survival
  • Written books
    • Use JSON text components instead of plain text with the new pages tag
    • Capable of using the clickEvent and hoverEvent tags
    • Previously, text formatting could only be accomplished using the section symbol via Formatting codes
    • Might need some time before it can work in survival
  • Huge mushrooms
    • When harvested with Silk Touch enchantment they drop blocks with corresponding mushroom texture (red or brown) on all sides rather than the one with spores
  • Stairs
    • All icons for stairs in the inventory are now viewed at a different angle
  • Model format improvements[1]
    • New tag "textures" to specify the textures used by the model.
    • Removed the directional attribute from the uv definition and replaced it with explicit texture references
      • "textureFacing" renamed to "texture", it is prepended with the hash symbol (#)
    • "useAmbientOcclusion" renamed to "ambientocclusion"
    • "rotateVariantTextures" renamed to "UV lock"
    • "cull" renamed to "cullface", specifies the opposite of which neighboring face causes culling to occur
      • Example: if you have an east-facing face but want it to be culled along a different axis (let's say Z), you would specify "cullface": "north" or "cullface": "south".
    • Rotation made more verbose, it is now more clear that it can only occur on a single axis
      • Example, the rotation for one of the two faces of the "cross" model is now: "rotation": { "origin": [ 8, 8, 8 ], "axis": "y", "angle": 45, "rescale": true },
    • The folder models/blocks/meshes was removed and model files are now stored in models/blocks.
    • The folder blockstates was added and stores the model selection files previously found in models/blocks.
  • Rendering
    • Items
      • All items are models, some are still generated from item icons
      • Resource packs can make models for all items
    • Blocks
      • Rewrote how blocks are rendered
      • Rewrote how block data is handled
      • Removed the previously-accessible item forms of flowing and stationary water and lava blocks (8, 9, 10 & 11), double stone and wooden slabs (43 & 125), fire blocks (51), Nether portal and End portal blocks (90 & 119), cocoa pods (127), and potato and carrot crops (141 & 142). They are no longer available as item forms through the /give or /summon commands, but are still placeable through commands such as /setblock.
  • Withers, iron golems & snow golems
    • Can be spawned by arranging the blocks in any orientation
      • This does not affect the orientation of the spawned mob
  • Withers
    • Can now move around during the invulnerability stage right after they are spawned.[2]
  • Arrows
    • Work differently underwater
      • They will lose all velocity after a few blocks and slowly fall
      • Fire Arrows will be extinguished
  • Potion effects
    • You now see better with night vision and water breathing at the same time under water.[3]
