Free Worlds and Redstone Point in Minecraft 1.16, Snapshot 20w21a

In this snapshot, we added support for arbitrary configuration worlds and custom dimensions. These are the first changes, so we would love to hear your feedback on this feature. Please note that this innovation is considered experimental for Minecraft PE Addons only!. Any settings of arbitrary worlds may change in the future; similar worlds in the list of worlds will be marked as experimental.

What’s New in Minecraft Java Edition 1.16, Snapshot 20w21a
Added the ability to choose how the redstone will look – in the form of a cross or a dot.
Added the ability to import / export world settings.
A new disableMultiplayer command-line option has been added that disables the Multiplayer button.
A new disableChat command line option has been added that disables the receipt and sending of messages in network chat.
Piglins admiring gold will no longer walk aimlessly.
If you injure a Piglin who admires a bar of gold, then the bar will disappear.
The likelihood of ore generation in basaltic deltas has been increased in order to balance the lack of nezerac in this biome.
Water lilies are now more often regarded as garbage caught during fishing than treasures.
Updated Mojang Studios and Minecraft logo.
Temporarily removed construction settings from the template settings of flat worlds (you can get around using the import / export functions).
 

The appearance of redstone

If you right-click on a single element of the redstone, it will change the appearance from a cross to a point and vice versa.
A dotted redstone will not transfer energy to neighboring blocks.
 

Technical changes
Added ability to control the height for the spreadplayers team.
Added support for arbitrary worlds and arbitrary measurements.
 

Teams
spreadplayers

Added optional argument specifying the maximum height.

New command syntax: spreadplayers [under ]

maxHeight – a new parameter indicates the maximum possible height of the resulting position.
locate

Design names are now lowercase.
 

Free worlds
Added experimental support for new arbitrary worlds.
On the world settings screen, it became possible to export world parameters to a JSON file.
When creating a world, you can import previous world settings.
You can set many new parameters, but they are marked as experimental. You can play, but there is no guarantee that they will be supported in the future (or at least in the next snapshot!).
The flat world settings string lost the settings of the structures (they are now stored in a common format for all worlds). Soon we will restore this functionality in one form or another.
Assorted worlds can no longer be created using server.properties, flat worlds have changed slightly. But in the future, support for arbitrary worlds will be improved.
 

Bug fixes
33 errors were fixed, among which the following can be noted:

The splash of fish was accompanied by subtitles “steps”.
Piglins instantly dismount from any entity on which they “sat down”.
Supporters stop attacking if they are very close to the player.

[Minecraft 1.15] Nether Update – Finally!

Goats, mountains, targets – this is just a small list of what Mojang managed to announce yesterday at Minecon. The next major Minecraft 1.15 update will be dedicated to Hell. Nether now, like the ordinary world, will represent a whole variety of biomes. And it is fundamentally different from the Hell we are used to. From now on, it will certainly not be bored!

Soulsand Valley

This biome is full of blocks of sand of souls, the skeletons of ancient dead animals will be scattered in it, and the fire will burn in blue. Yes, yes, yes, Minecraft now has a block of blue fire!

Nether Wart Forest Red

If you thought that Nether was too red, now you will see places even redder. This is a biome in which something like trees will grow, and also, apparently, some blue mushrooms will grow.

Nether Wart Forest Blue

And if red is still tired, then take a look at the blue version of the biome! This place is no different from Nether Wart Forest Red, except in color. Again, blue mushrooms and trees.

Piglin Beast
How can new biomes be without new mobs? A dangerous, awesome and beautiful mob that will serve as a food source in Hell. Moreover, it will be hunted not only by players, but also by pigs. The name Piglin Beast is not yet final, as is the case with the destroyer in Minecraft 1.14, the developers will determine it later.

Piglin (Pig)

Alas, pig zombies will no longer be in the game. Now there will be buckwheels and zombie buckwicks. Pigs live in Nether in small bastions. They are hostile to the player, however, if you dress in gold armor, they will not attack you until you try to rummage in their chests. Get ready for the battle with the Pigs!
