Pre-Release: Java Edition 1.15.2

Pre-Release 1.15.2


Tired of collecting bee nests and having bees get angry at you?  How about when creating that one map and needing patrols to spawn so you can ambush the player when they least expect it?  It's that time again where we're starting off our journey towards the next major update.  Annoyed that you keep falling down ladders with your elytra or having your potion effects removed by a beacon?  

Yeah, I thought so.  Mojang is listening and they've heard you as they've released the first pre-release of the year for Java Edition!.  We're still a good ways out from the Nether Update, but while we're waiting let's take a look at what the first pre-release for Java Edition has to offer.




  • Bees no longer anger when a nearby nest/hive is destroyed using a silk touch tool
  • Added doPatrolSpawning and doTraderSpawning game rules that control spawning of patrols and wandering traders, respectively
  • Added gui_light option in block models to allow controlling light when rendering model as item in GUI
  • Controls light when rendering block model inside slot. If set to side, model will be rendered like block. If set to front, model is shaded like flat item
  • Fixed bugs

That's a lot of fixes!  I can't wait to dive right in and test the changes for myself.  Don't forget, if you're planning on using a pre-existing world to back it up!  Don't want all your hard work to disappear right?  After you've done that and if you find any bugs, be sure to report them on Mojang's Issue Tracker or if you have a suggestion or a change you'd like to see, head on over to Mojang's Feedback website!
