Minecraft 1.20 Pre-Release 6

A Minecraft Java Pre-Release

Summer is around the corner here at the office, and what better time to stay inside and try out the new pre-release?!

Happy crafting, you wonderful people!

Edit: The sixth pre-release of the 1.20 update is here, yet again containing more bug fixes.

Happy mining!

Technical Changes in 1.20 Pre-release 6

  • "item": "minecraft:air" can no longer be used in datapack recipes
  • Ingredients in array form are now also allowed in smithing_trim and smithing_transform recipes on fields template, base and addition
    • Those fields also allow empty arrays, which signalize that slot needs to be left empty

Loot tables

The ID of the random sequence is now an optional field. If no sequence name is given, loot is drawn using a non-deterministic random source.
