This article has been written before more than 60days, information might old.

You’ve already seen the header image. Do we even need to say anything else?

CHANGES IN 18W15A

  • New entity: Dolphins
  • New block: Conduit
  • New block: Blue Ice

DOLPHINS

It’s happening!

  • Spawns in any ocean that isn’t frozen
  • They’re just cute, okay?
  • Dolphins are very playful and love floating items
  • They also love to chase after boats
  • If you upset one, you upset them all
  • More behaviours coming soon

WATER

Blubb blubb blubb blubb

  • Water now only blocks 1 light per block, instead of 3
  • This only affects newly placed water – we will relight all chunks in an upcoming snapshot
  • Every ocean biome has a unique water colour, and swamps are icky and gross
  • In newly generated chunks, you’re less likely to find frozen ocean next to warm ocean (and similar)

CONDUIT

  • What is this?
  • Where are we?
