Minecraft 1.18 Update Experimental Snapshot 7 Patch Notes Today


  • Noodle caves can generate at any height, no longer capped at y 130. This means you’ll sometimes find tiny cave openings and cracks in mountain peaks. Tread with care.
  • Some parts of the terrain are ever so slightly smoother (less 3d noise in tech speak)
  • Elytra doesn’t take durability damage when gliding, only when using rockets. So you don’t HAVE to have mending or unbreaking enchantments to use your elytra, especially now that there are higher mountains and cliffs to launch from.
  • Elytra rocket boost is a bit weaker, so you can’t fly as fast with rockets. We are testing this for several reasons:
    • Elytra rocket boosting is so fast that other means of transport become almost redundant. We want to balance it out a bit.
    • Even in earlier versions of Minecraft most servers get laggy when players fly around with elytra & rockets because they fly faster than chunks can load. With the new world height this would probably get worse.
    • There is so much more cool terrain to enjoy now, wouldn’t want to zoom past it all too fast right? 🙂
    • Note that gliding speed is unchanged. This affects just rocket boosting.
  • That’s it. I told you. This is a tiny snapshot.
  • What? The swamps, you ask? Nope, we didn’t change the swamps, and they have mixed feelings about that.
