Average rating: 0

The first snapshot of the features that were announced at Minecraft Live 2022 was released today. However, the next version will be Minecraft 1.19.3 as Mojang changes its approach to version numbering. Now the content will be released in small portions and more often, and the version change will take place approximately once a year to take stock and correct possible errors. New features can be activated separately, they will be delivered in the form of built-in data packs. A similar approach is currently used in the Bedrock version (Experimental Features).

  • high growth helps them overcome fences;
  • can walk slowly or run very fast;
  • two players can sit on one camel at once, while the second player can use a weapon;
  • zombies will not be able to attack players on a camel;
  • sometimes camels sit down, after which it is very difficult to convince them to set off again;
  • Camels need to be fed cactus to breed.

Bamboo planks:

  • crafted from four pieces of bamboo;
  • you can craft the same items and blocks as from wood (but instead of a boat there will be a raft);
  • you can also create a bamboo mosaic.

Hanging signs:

  • crafted from 6 boards and two chains (the output is 6 tablets);
  • hung in the same way as lanterns, can be hung to each other.
