Minecraft 1.18.0 Features
The algorithm for generating caves with a depth of Y=-59 blocks has been completely changed. It should be noted that the caves consist of 2 layers of different stone bases
depending on the depth. So, for example, the layer above Y=0 consists of an ordinary stone that goes into a deep slate from Y=0 to Y=-7. Further, deep slate completely replaces the stone from Y=-8 to the bedrock.
Now you can visit dripstone caves and lush caves that are full-fledged underground biomes. Lush caves
are formed at any depth, usually this happens in places where azalea trees are found. The roots of this tree grow downwards until they reach a lush cave. These are most often found on the surface, but sometimes they can form inside caves if there is enough space. Dripstone caves
are usually formed as an underground biome with blocks of dripstone and a pointed dripstone that hang down in the form of stalactites and grow out of the ground in the form of stalagmites. Basically they look like ordinary caves, with the exception of sections of dripping stone blocks and pointed dripping stone. Large accumulations of drip stone sometimes form inside ravines. This biome also generates larger clumps of copper ore compared to other biomes. Deepest depths of the world
- a new dangerous biome generated in caves below Y=-1 to Y=-64. Here the Varden will spawn, and also there you can get new types of blocks that respond to vibrations. Varden makes a quiet sound — it's the sound of a core in the center of his chest. It starts to sound more often and louder if the Varden picks up any vibrations. This is the only mob in the game that attacks all mobs, without exception.
The vanilla cave generation algorithm has been changed to better match with new cave generations.
New noise caves
, produced in 3 forms: "cheese
" and "noodles
Cheese caves have large stone towers extending from the bottom of the cave to the top, and are often large enough to allow safe flight of the elytra.
Spaghetti caves are long thin caves with small aquifers that are more like the original caves.
Noodle caves are more subtle, twisty and claustrophobic versions of spaghetti caves. Added 6 mountain biomes
that are randomly generated in vanilla biomes. Each mountain has its own unique features, for example, in snow biomes, a mountain with steep slopes can be generated on which you will find thick layers of snow or ice spikes. Meanwhile, mountains with beautiful meadows at the top are generated on the plains biome.
The Meadow mountains
are a flat but elevated biome, similar to the blooming and colder plains, with aquamarine grass color and dark blue watercolor. It forms on plateaus and in the lower layers of some mountains, usually near plains and other temperate biomes. There you can find grass, tall grass, dandelions, azure bluets, cornflowers, poppies, daisies and alliums. Also, birches and oaks are rarely found here, but they always have bee nests. Only rabbits, donkeys and sheep breed in this biome. You can also find rare settlements of villagers and pillager outposts on the top of the mountain.
The Grove mountains
resemble a snow-covered taiga with a surface of snow blocks and powdered snow instead of grass blocks. It forms on the slopes of a snowy mountain next to forest biomes. Rabbits, wolves, foxes, sheep, pigs, chickens and cows breed in this biome. Additionally, you can find pillager outposts. Mountains with snowy slopes
are mainly formed when they are located next to plains and snowy tundras. It has a very thick layer of ordinary snow, snow blocks and snow powder. Only rabbits and goats breed in this biome. It has a higher chance to find the igloo and pillager outposts. Jagged Peaks
are one of three microlocations that form on mountain peaks. Mostly it is covered with snow, snow blocks and stone. Such places can be found on sharp and jagged peaks in areas with snowy, cold and temperate biomes. In such difficult conditions, only goats can cope for survival, but it is also rare to find pillagers outposts. Rocky peaks
are locations on mountains that are covered with stone, gravel and bands of calcite. This is a very frequent phenomenon that tends to be generated at any peak surrounded by warm biomes, such as jungles and savannas. Very often pillagers outposts are generated on the surface of the mountain. Frozen peaks
are locations that are covered with snow, snow blocks, ice and compacted ice. This is often generated on smoother and smaller peaks in areas with snowy, cold, and temperate biomes. There the player can meet only goats and very hardcore conditions for survival. More information about the features and changes will be available after the release of the full version of the game.
