I am still adding new stuff to 1.21.
In one of the earlier posts there was a screenshot where you could glimpse a ray underwater. Here’s a full video showing how they behave:
Big thanks for all the reproduction reports on the forever burning coal block. I’ve got it nailed down and fixed. This time it was more difficult, took me two days to get to the bottom of it.
While doing it, I discovered a whole host of bugs to do with terrain updating, and the coal block issue was really only a tip of the iceberg. Another aspect of the same problem were fences that would not join:
Yet another aspect would manifest itself as broken lighting, where you could see a sharp edge between lit and unlit areas. It’s all fixed in 1.21!
The bug was so destructive I am quite amazed that 1.20 even works while it’s still in :-)
There’s a big new mechanics coming to the game in the next release, but I haven’t made much progress on it in the last couple of days, mostly due to this bug. I’ll restart the work on it today.
