  • On April 1, 2018, all textures in 1.12.2 were temporarily replaced – they were changed to include a smaller range of colors, falsely told to be the new textures previously announced (as a joke for April Fools).[2]
  • This is one of the versions with a disproportionately large amount of mods available, along with 1.7.10.
    • Contributing factors include the relatively small changes in the game engine since 1.9, the Flattening and the introduction of Brigadier and Data Fixer Upper libraries in 1.13.[citation needed]
