Minecraft Preview 1.19.80.20

A Minecraft Preview Changelog

Now that Minecraft 1.20 has officially been named the Trails & Tales Update, we are going to keep this train going at full speed with a whole slew of new, experimental features and bug fixes coming to Bedrock to this week! Are you ready to explore the cherry grove, a.k.a. the cherry blossom biome? There may be two names for this beautiful place floating around, and we are sorry if this is confusing. Just like the features, their names are also works in progress. Regardless of what you choose to call it, it’s lovely so I would advise you to find it as soon as possible. But that’s not all! While we are not quite ready to add armor trims, we do have changes to decorated pots, suspicious sand, the brush, and the camel. We even have a new “You Died!” screen. So get out there and fling yourself into some lava or stare down a creeper. Don’t forget to send us all your feedback and ideas at aka.ms/MC120Feedback and report any bugs to bugs.mojang.com.

Experimental Features

Cherry Grove

  • Introducing the Cherry Grove biome, with pretty Cherry Blossom trees. You can find it in the mountains, like Meadows
  • It has a new flower, Pink Petals, as ground cover, which can be crafted into Pink Dye
  • Pigs, Rabbits, Sheep, and Bees spawn there
  • Comes with a new wood set for the Cherry Blossom trees

Decorated Pot

  • Tweaked the Decorated Pot neck based on feedback (MCPE-167168)
    • With the former pot, we decided that the pot's neck would clip with blocks so it would be extra flexible to build with. However, we've had some Z-fighting issues which means that 2 objects are in the same exact position and this causes flickering. With this new block model we prevent that and the pot looks a little bit more complex!
  • Decorated Pot no longer provides support for blocks wanting to attach to its side faces (MCPE-167165)
  • Decorated Pot is not stackable in Inventory (MCPE-167223)
  • Base recipe for the Decorated Pot now shows up in the Survival recipe book

  • Updated archer Pottery Shard texture

Brush

  • Changed the Brush recipe to use a Feather, Copper Ingot, and Stick (MCPE-167619)
  • Breaking animations now work when holding a Brush in third person view (MCPE-167183)
  • Added a slight cooldown for particles and sounds when using the Brush item

Suspicious Sand

  • Suspicious Sand is no longer waterloggable (MCPE-167222)
  • Suspicious Sand now connects to Fence blocks
  • Suspicious Sand now turns into regular Sand after it's been destroyed with a Brush (MCPE-167166)
  • Suspicious Sand now emits particles when broken by Pistons
  • Fixed an issue that caused the item inside Suspicious Sand to flicker while brushing (MCPE-167180)
  • Additionally, blocks that were previously not emitting particles when destroyed by pistons now do! (MCPE-109293, MCPE-126257)

Camel

  • Camels now stop dashing when entering a rideable entity (MCPE-164065)

1.5 Sneak

  • The ability to sneak under 1.5 block gaps is now behind the Short Sneak toggle. Enable the toggle to continue to test out the feature while we continue polishing it

Features and Bug Fixes

Updated “You Died” experience
Starting today, we’re rolling out some changes to the screen you see when you die in Minecraft. This design is available to everyone in Preview/Beta, except if you have add-ons applied. We’d love to hear what you think! Please share your feedback with us here.

Technical Updates

Bedrock Editor

The Editor is in early development, and available for keyboard/mouse on Windows PC Bedrock Preview builds. It is an in-engine, multiblock editing experience focused on making it possible for creators of all skillsets to easily craft high-quality experiences in Bedrock! We're working to add more capabilities, and it will change significantly as we get feedback from creators like you.

  • Learn how to use the Editor
  • Join our Discussion forum, post bugs, view more detailed release notes, and share your creations on GitHub
  • Tag us on social channels with #BedrockEditor

Game Events

  • item_interact_finish game event now has a vibration frequency of 2 instead of 14
  • item_interact_start is no longer considered a detectable vibration
  • Reeling a fishing rod now emits projectile_shoot vibration

Data-Driven Components

  • Added "lose_target" field to projectile data to specify if an entity should unselect its target after shooting the projectile
  • Added a new Transformation component for blocks to support rotation, scaling and translation. The component can be added to the whole block, and/or to individual block permutations. Eg.

"minecraft:transformation": {
                "translation": [0.0, 0.1, -0.1],
                "scale": [0.5, 1, 1.5],
      "rotation": [90, 180, 0]
}

  • Transformed geometries still have the same restrictions that non-transformed geometries have, eg. a maximum size of 30/16 units

Add-Ons and Script Engine

  • Chance information types used in tree feature JSONs for some trunks and foliage now allow 0 as the chance (values like 0.0001 were allowed, but not 0)

User Interface

  • Feedback button on the pause menu will now prompt the user with a modal before redirecting to the browser
