Additions[edit]

Items[edit]

Gameplay[edit]

Status effects
  • Slow Falling
    • 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 5.5 blocks, compared to 4 with normal sprinting.
    • Crops will not get destroyed if the player lands on them with the Slow Falling status effect.

  • 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.
    • minecraft:channeled_lightning triggers when a player uses the Channeling enchantment to strike a mob.
    • minecraft:filled_bucket triggers when a player fills a bucket.
