Minecraft 1.18.1 Pre-Release 1
A Minecraft Java Pre-Release
We're now releasing the first pre-release for Minecraft 1.18.1. This will be a fairly small release that will fix a few stability issues and a few bugs. We aim to release this version at the end of next week.
Technical changes in 1.18.1 Pre-release 1
- Fixed an issue that would cause players on low-bandwidth connections to get timeout errors when connecting to a server
- World fog now starts further away from the player, to make distant terrain more visible
- Instead of applying fog as a spherical volume it is now applied as a cylindrical volume
Fixed bugs in 1.18.1 Pre-release 1
- MC-219507 - Beacon’s power reverts back to previous one on world reload
- MC-242729 - Observer activating without any updates nearby, caused by /clone
- MC-243216 - Chunk render distance on servers seems shorter than in 1.17.1
