1.13.0 is an upcoming major update for Bedrock Edition set to release in late 2019.[1] It will focus on adding several missing features that were not included in previous updates, along with some other features, including a character creator, and making even more improvements to map-making and commands.



Dead Coral

Note Blocks
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.
    • Additionally, any placed structure void will instantly become visible when the player holds the item in their hand, similar to the barrier.
  • Allows for empty spaces in a structure.
    • Unlike air, it will not overwrite blocks where it is loaded.
    • Example: If the player loads 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 as stone.
