Minecraft 1.16 Pre Release 1 – Patch Notes

So here are new additions and changes in Minecraft 1.16 pre-release 1.

Data Packs

Over to the new world menu, you’ll notice a data packs toggle right above ‘more world options’. Earlier snapshots used to have an odd space that is now filled with the data packs button. After pressing this button, You’ll notice a similar menu like a resource pack menu. This would help you to load a data pack even before loading the world. Certainly, it’d help many players like me to spawn in nether which they always wished to!!

If You like customizing and spicing your game a bit this is the right option for you. Data packs would eventually make it possible. It also helps you to add some custom recipies of your choice. For example, if you’re a data pack creator and you wanna customize your armor using a smiting table? It can be done easily just by using data packs.

Bucket update

This Minecraft 1.16 pre release will bring all-new bucket capabilities to your game. When you’ll use an empty bucket on the water while being in creative… you’ll get another bucket filled with water in your inventory (now you have an empty bucket and a bucket with water). If you’ll use that empty bucket again…you’ll notice that no new bucked filled with water would be added to your inventory.

With this Minecraft 1.16 Pre Release, you can now you’ll be able to acquire milk from cows and mooshroooms by using buckets on them even if you’re in creative.

The same changes are applied to the bowl… you would be able to acquire stew from mooshroom, even if you’re in creative.

Witch spawn update

If a villager is struck by lightning, which has turned him to a witch… that witch will no longer despawn in the world.

Gamerule update

Brand new gamerules have been added to this new Minecraft 1.16 Pre Release 1.

The first one is, /gamerule UniversalAnger (by default it is going to be off). If you’ve your friend in your world. This would make mobs mad at both of you, even if only you’ve attacked that particular mob.

For example, if you’ll attack neutral mobs like zombiefied piglin… it’ll be mad at everyone in the server instead of being mad just at you.

The second one, /gamerule ForgiveDeathPlayer (by default it is going to be enabled). Disabling it would cause zombiefied pigins to be mad at you even after being killed in the nether by them. This same applies to all neutral mobs. Neutral mobs would not forgive you even after taking you out!!

Zombiefied piglin changes

Zombiefied piglins won’t attack now any innocent bi-standards unless and until you have enabled, gamerule Universal Anger. They will also stop being angry once they’ve taken out the player unless you’ve disabled new gamerule Universal Anger.

Graphic change

New graphics option has been added referred to as ‘Fabulous’

Enabling it would make use of per-pixel blending layers for some transparent elements, making some performance improvement.

So these are some new changes in Minecraft 1.16 Pre Release. Stay tuned for more updates.
