  • Slow Falling status effect
    • Causes the player to descend at a much slower rate, and not take any damage when hitting the ground
    • This allows the player to jump further than normal
      • If the player is sprinting while under the Slow Falling status effect, they will be able to jump across a gap of over 512 blocks, compared to 4 with normal sprinting
    • Crops will not get destroyed if the player lands on them with the Slow Falling status effect
    • Higher levels do not change the rate of descent
  • Added 4 new advancements
    • Fishy Business: 'Catch a fish'
    • Tactical fishing: 'Catch a fish... without a fishing rod!'
    • A Throwaway Joke: 'Throw a trident at something'
    • Very Very Frightening: 'Strike a Villager with lightning'
  • Added three new advancement triggers
    • minecraft:fishing_rod_hooked triggers when a player reels in an item or entity.
