JAVA Edition: Snapshot 20w07a

What's that feeling?  Is it love?  No, it's EXCITEMENT!  Today our Valentine is this newly released snapshot!  Don't forget to drop feedback to Mojang about this update and join the conversation below.  What are you most excited about so far?

 

 

  • Endermen can now pick up some of the new Nether blocks
  • Endermen will no longer pick up Netherrack
  • Gave Hoglins some actual functionality
  • Added Piglins
  • The Wither can now be summoned using soul soil as base
  • Netherite blocks can be used as the base of a beacon and Netherite ingots can be used as the fuel for a beacon. Weird flex but ok.

ADVANCEMENTS

  • Piglins and Hoglins are now required for Monster Hunter and Monsters Hunted

HOGLINS

  • Hoglins are big aggressive beasts that live in crimson forests in the Nether
  • They attack players on sight, so be careful, they can easily knock you off a ledge!
  • Hoglins drop pork and sometimes leather, but not willingly
  • You can breed Hoglins by feeding them crimson fungi, but do so at your own risk
  • Hoglins get hunted by Piglins sometimes, but they don’t go down without a fight!
  • Despite this, Hoglins and Piglin aren’t enemies – they are more like an ecosystem
  • Baby Hoglins like to pretend they are tough – but don’t worry, they are more like angry puppies with no teeth
  • Want to keep Hoglins off your back? Pro tip: Hoglins hate the smell of warped fungi!

PIGLINS

  • Piglins are an aggressive civilization that live in the Nether
  • They mostly hang around in crimson forests, but you might find
    some in the Nether wastes too
  • They think of players as target practice and will attack on sight
  • However, if you dress appropriately they will see you as a respectable figure, or tolerable at least
  • Piglins are suspicious of strangers and if they see you opening a chest, or mining a block of gold,
    they will assume that you’re stealing and will treat you accordingly
  • Piglins LOVE gold and get very distracted by gold items
  • Gold ingots are currency to Piglins and you can throw ingots at them or right-click them with an
    ingot to barter for various goods
  • Piglins sometimes get hungry and hunt Hoglins for food. Or they try at least. They results… vary.
  • Piglins prefer to hunt and fight in groups, and when a fight is happening everyone wants in
  • Piglins that somehow end up in the overworld become zombified fairly quickly
  • Piglins are creeped out by soul fire and zombified Piglins, and will stay clear whenever possible
  • Wither skeletons are a historic enemy and Piglins will attack on sight
  • Baby Piglins are not as dangerous, but they can be mischievous so watch your back
  • … and they like to play with baby Hoglins
