- Minecraft: All updates in 23w31a explained!
- A newcomer (Yi Ling) joins the rank of Aberration's wildlife!
- User Interface gets a facelift, express more with the all-new Chat Emojis, and more!
Have you heard about Minecraft's new snapshot 23w31a in 1.20.2? It alters the game quite a bit. You'll spot more diamond ores deep within Overworld's Deepslate layers now. Guess what? It's raining diamonds!
Ever used Barrier blocks in Creative mode? Now, they merge with water. Build more with water-filled structures!
Trading with villagers changed too. Cure a Zombie Villager, get a big first-time discount. But that's it. No extra discounts for curing the same Villager again. It stops players from gaming the trading system.
Folks also tried a new feature, albeit experimental. Who benefits? Librarians and wandering traders. They now have special books. But alas! These enchanted ones are only for Master level librarians.
The snapshot also comes with crucial technical upgrades. The history of past commands? Saved and accessible across worlds. Chunk sending optimized for those on limited internet. Handy, right?
The network protocol also got a tweak. It allows for more data-driven content later. To sum up, snapshot 23w31a for Minecraft 1.20.2 is a game-changer. It spices up gameplay, builds flexibility, and curbs player advantage exploits. It's fun times ahead!
