NEW FEATURES IN 21W39A

  • Added Caves & Cliffs: Part II Advancements

ADVANCEMENTS

  • Added “Caves & Cliffs” for falling from top to bottom of the Overworld
  • Added “Feels like home” for riding strider on lava for 50 blocks in the Overworld
  • Added “Star Trader” for trading with a villager at the build height limit

EFFECTS

  • Your list of effects are now shown to the right of your inventory, instead of the left side
  • When the inventory effects list is visible, it will be hidden from the game view to reduce screen clutter
  • There’s now two modes of seeing the effect list: compact and classic
    • Classic is the pre-existing list of effects, one after another
    • Compact is a single icon for each effect, suitable for small screen estate
  • The game will automatically switch between the two looks to suit the available screen estate (including having the recipe book open)

  • Resource pack format has been increased to 8
  • Standalone server.jar now bundles contains individual libraries instead of being flat archive

    • start_position – location predicate for last position before falling started
    • distance – predicate for distance between start_position and player

RIDE_ENTITY_IN_LAVA

  • Triggered for every tick when player rides in lava
  • Conditions
    • player – a player for which this trigger runs
    • start_position – position where riding started (first tick on lava)
    • distance – predicate for distance between start_position and player

CHANGED TRIGGERS

NETHER_TRAVEL

LOOT TABLES

NEW FUNCTIONS

WORLD DATA: CHUNK FORMAT

  • Chunk’s Level.Sections[].BlockStates & Level.Sections[].Palette have moved to a container structure in Level.Sections[].block_states

RESOURCE PACK FORMAT

  • minecraft/textures/gui/container/inventory.png now contains an extra sprite for a thin-layout version of the effect list in the inventory

SERVER BUNDLING

  • This change is meant to solve certain problems related to Java modules
  • On startup, server.jar will unpack libraries into a directory configured by bundlerRepoDir (default: working directory)
  • To run different main class than server, use bundlerMainClass property (for example java -DbundlerMainClass=net.minecraft.data.Main -jar server.jar –reports) or unpack jar manually and use contents of META-INF/classpath-joined for command line
