New functions:


  • Axolotls are amphibious creatures that spawn in underground water
  • If you’re holding a bucket of tropical fish, nearby Axolotls will follow the player both on land and in the water. Axolotls cannot be tamed, but can be bred by feeding them buckets of tropical fish
  • Axolotl will attack fish, squid, drowned and guards!
  • Axolotls come in a variety of colors, all with an equal chance of spawning, except for blue. Blue Axolotls have a small chance of spawning as a mutation when breeding two Axolotls
  • Axolotls can survive on dry land for a few minutes. After that, they will begin to dry out and sustain continuous damage until they are rehydrated
  • When taking damage there is a chance that the Axolotl will play dead. While playing dead, the Axolotl regenerates health and mobs cannot target the Axolotl
  • When a player kills a mob that was attacking the Axolotl, they are rewarded with the regeneration effect and their mining fatigue is removed, if they had it
  • Axolotls can be picked up just like fish with buckets!


  • The winning crowd of the MINECON Live 2019 mob vote!
  • For now, goats are spawning in Extreme Hills. This will change with Caves & Cliffs: Part II

powder snow

  • Mobs in a block of powder snow start to freeze and eventually take damage

  • Boilers fill in snowy weather, creating a renewable source of powder snow. It will also be generated naturally in certain snowy biomes when Caves & Cliffs: Part II comes out
  • Buckets can be used to scoop and place powder snow

Amethyst Geodes

  • Inside Geodes there is an inner layer of various Amethyst blocks
  • All kinds of amethyst blocks (including clusters) make beautiful sounds when you walk on them, break them, place them or hit them with a projectile – start making music!
  • Amethyst comes in block form in the Geodes in two ways: Block of Amethyst Block and Budding Amethyst

Amethyst Clusters

  • Copper ore can now be found underground in newly generated chunks and can be smelted into copper bars
  • Block copper and cut copper can be made, as well as stairs and slabs
  • After being placed in the world, copper blocks will slowly oxidize over time and turn into exposed copper, weathered copper and oxidized copper
  • Copper blocks that are not fully oxidized can be waxed to prevent further oxidation, either by using a honeycomb object on them, using the craft grid, or using a dispenser loaded with honeycombs
  • Axes can scrape wax and oxidation from copper blocks
