  • sound_interval - The range of time in seconds to randomly wait before playing the sound again

Barter Component

Mobs can now barter when they pick up items, or when they receive an item during an interaction. For a mob to barter they need to have both the barter goal and the barter component, and the relevant configuration need to be done in the interact component and/or the shareables component

Component Variables

  • barter_table - A path to a loot table, which is used to determine what items the mob gives out during barter
  • cooldown_after_being_attacked - Specifies for how long the goal will be unavailable after the mob is attacked, the default value is 0

Barter Goal

Goal Variables

Celebrate Hunt Component

  • Specifies that the mob should have the hunt celebration behavior

  • admire - If true the mob will try to activate the admire goal after the interaction, default value is false

MoveToLavaGoal

Navigation component

  • Navigationcomponent now has can_path_over_lava and can_walk_in_lava parameters, allowing mobs (like the strider) to traverse lava

PanicGoal

  • Changed the priority from the damage type to the "ignore_mob_damage" flag (if that flag is set and a mob attacks the mob with the Panic Goal, they will not panic even if the damage type matches one in their "damage_sources" list)
  • Changed damage types from being hard-coded to being data-driven using the existing "Entity Damage Sources"
  • Changed the default from "fire, fire_tick, magma" (old hardcoded behavior) to "all"
    Pre-1.16 mobs will default to "fire, fire_tick, magma"

Pickup Items Goal

The PickupItemsGoal only considers items that the mob can reach

  • When determining whether the goal can be used we now check whether the mob can reach an item it’s interested in, before committing to it as the target of the goal. This is to avoid mobs getting stuck in this goal after deciding to pick up an item they cannot reach

PickupBasedOnChance variable

  • This new variable was added to be used for monsters that can pickup items sometimes but also preserve mobs that used this goal in the past like Villagers. If this variable is true, the mob will have a calculation done (based on things like time played by the player, game difficulty, and moon brightness) to determine if this is a mob that is allowed to pickup items. That value is only calculated on the mob’s first spawn, which means it is forever saved on that mob and doesn’t change. If the variable is false (which it is by default), the mob will always be able to pickup items using the goal

CanPickupAnyItem variable

  • The PickupItemsGoal is dependent on the ShareableComponent and the items that are added to its items list. This new variable overrides that list and tells the component that this mob can pickup any item even if it isn’t in the list. Items picked up because of this variable still honor the priority set to items in the list of items however. This means that any items with a set priority in the list will still be picked up over any item that may be picked up because of this variable. By default it is set to false

CooldownAfterBeingAttacked variable

  • The variable cooldown_after_being_attacked has been added to the goal, specifying for how many seconds after being attacked the goal should be unavailable. The default value is 0

CanPickupToHandOrEquipment variable

  • Specifying if the mob can equip items that it picks up or put items in its hand, or if it belongs in the inventory

Shareable Component

Component Variables

  • item/barter - If true the mob will try to activate the barter goal after picking up the item, default value is false
  • item/admire - If true the mob will try to activate the admire goal after picking up the item, default value is false
  • item/consume_item - Specifies if an item should be consumed, for instance, Piglins consume (eat) porkchop. Default value is false
  • item/stored_in_inventory - Specifies if the item is desired to be picked up and stored in the mobs inventory. Default value is false

Tweaked a number of in-game sounds

  • A large amount of sounds have had their volume and pitch slightly changed in order to get close to Java parity when it comes to sound, and come closer to how these sounds where intended to sound
  • This change has gone into all slices - because previous behavior has been wrong and should not be used by content creators. Creator that relied on the previous volume and pitch need to override that in their content from now on

Splash Text

  • The Splash Text loading code has been augmented to allow splash text JSON files to be additive, rather than replacing them completely, and to allow some conditional statements to disable splash text entries. Use a field called "canMerge" that sits next to the "splashes" field, it is a bool that defaults to 'false'. Also, another sibling of "splashes" is "conditional", which is an array of objects. Those objects contain a "requires" field and a "splashes" field. The "splashes" field is an array of strings like the original "splashes" field, and the "requires" field contains three fields - "platforms", "treatments", and "stores", each of which is an array of strings that is compared with the relevant data
