One of the new features in 1.20 will be a block that burns forever.
A lot of people are requesting it, and it’s easy to add. It may be very useful in Adventure Mode, as a decoration or in fireplaces. Minecraft uses Netherrack for that. I don’t want to use supernatural stuff, so Survivalcraft will have coal blocks crafted of 9 coal chunks for that purpose. I think this idea was suggested by someone, but I can’t now find who that was. Thank you!
Here’s how they look like:
They can also be used as a fuel in the furnace, although they don’t last forever in there. Using 9 coal chunks separately will be more efficient.
Unlike diamond blocks, malachite blocks, copper blocks, etc. which all have to be crafted, coal blocks can actually be found underground, inside of rich coal veins.
As of today I am still working on the accessibility of texture packs (renamed to “block textures” in 1.20) and worlds. As a part of that work I have refactored large chunks of downloading/uploading logic, which will hopefully allow me to add more interesting stuff there later.
Happy New Year!
