  • New Blocks
  • New Ore type called ‘Ancient Debris’

FEATURES IN SNAPSHOT 20W06A

  • Knockback resistance is now a scale instead of a probability
  • Added Crimson Forest biome to the Nether

  • Added Netherite!

Many new block types have been added!

  • New ground surface blocks: Crimson Nylium and Warped Nylium
  • New vegetation: Nether Sprouts, Crimson Roots and Warped Roots

CRIMSON FOREST

Crimson Forests can now be found in the Nether!

  • Crimson nylium carpets the cave floor with all kinds of strange new vegetation
  • Huge Crimson Fungi make up the “trees” of this forest, with Shroomlights lighting up the forest floor
  • Weeping Vines grow from the cave ceilings and fungi
  • Hoglins wander these forests
  • Crimson spores swirl through the air

NETHERITE (What are Diamonds?)

  • A new high-level material found in the Nether. Use it to upgrade your diamond gear!

Want to learn how to make Netherrite? Say no more fam!

MAKING THE GIFT OF THE GODS

  • Mine Ancient Debris in the lower depths of the Nether. At own risk. No insurance coverage for that
  • Refine it into Netherite Scrap in a Furnace (although that’s kind of slow so you might want a Blast Furnace)
  • Combine 4 Nether Scrap with 4 Gold Ingots in a crafting table to make a Netherite Ingot

But MCPH Writer, what are the Netherrite effects like? We got you.

NETHERITE EFFECTS

  • Netherite items float in lava so you don’t lose all your gear after that unplanned lava bath
  • Netherite items have higher enchantment value than diamond (but not as high as gold)
  • Netherite tools work faster and last longer than diamond
  • Netherite weapons do more damage than diamond
  • Netherite armor have higher toughness and durability than diamond
  • Netherite armor gives you knockback resistance, so you barely get knocked back at all when hit by arrows and such
  • …and it looks cool!

SOULSAND VALLEY (As if your soul wasn’t already at risk)

Soulsand Valleys can now be found in the Nether!

  • An open space made mostly of Soul Sand and Soul Soil
  • Basalt pillars span from floor to ceiling
  • Fossil remains of unknown creatures from the past litter the valley
  • Ash falls through the air
  • A light blue glow envelopes the valley
  • Beware of Skeletons here!

SOUNDS (Our therapist says Ghasts aren’t real and can’t hurt us)

  • Ghasts sounds are now heard at a shorter range
  • Updated block sounds for Bone Blocks, Netherrack, Soul Sand, Netherwart, Nether Bricks and Quartz Ore

WARPED FREAKIN FOREST

That’s right, Warped Forests can now be found in the glorious Nether!

  • Warped nylium carpets the cave floor with all kinds of strange new vegetation
  • Huge Warped Fungi make up the “trees” of this forest, with Shroomlights lighting up the forest floor
  • A dark blue fog covers the forest
  • Warped spores swirl through the air
  • The Warped Forests are strange, but also the least hostile place of Nether

WORLD GENERATION (Wanna feel like Luffy from One Piece?)

  • The old Nether biome is now called Nether Wastes
  • Made shipwrecks and ocean ruins a bit less common, so you get more excited when you find one!

EPIC LIST OF TECHNICAL CHANGES IN 20W06A
