    Hi! I am a new member here. I just registered. This is my first post. It's about Minecraft 1.15. I am very excited about it! There is so much new stuff! Bees and a new nether! I can't wait! How do you feel about Minecraft 1.15?


    No new Nether yet, that's 1.16. 1.15 is small but looks fun.

    It is nice how it cures poison, does it cure other aliments i.e. slowness, hunger etc?


    No, only poison.

    posted a message on Advice for entirely stopping illagers/pillagers from spawning within my village? latest snapshot

    It's good to know that floating villages work, with raiders spawning below them. How about underground villages, do they work too?


    EDIT: I just checked this. Underground villages do indeed work - raiders just mill about the surface, confused.


    Apparently villages have a vertical radius, too - if they're far enough down, a raid won't start until you go down far enough.

    Even before the change 8 weeks ago, honey was exactly equivalent to mutton, which stacks to 64. So it doesn't seem as game-breaking as all that.

    posted a message on How many Bees in a Hive/Nest?

    According to the wiki the hive stores a list of the entities inside it. So there may not be an easy way to get their number by commands.


    It seems like a relatively easy thing for Mojang to add, though, so you could try requesting it.

    It is kind of frustrating since they had said the mobs voted on far back we would be getting later... and we have heard literally nothing about those since then. I have a bad feeling that it will be the same as with the other biomes that they say they will "update later."


    That's not my recollection. My understanding was that the other mobs from the vote would not be added. The biome votes were different, though - they were specifically for which would be updated first.

    Many entities have their own tags; for example, bats have "BatFlags", cats have "CatType" and "CollarColor", and so on - it wouldn't make sense and would be highly wasteful of resources if every single entity shared every possible tag (likewise, only breedable mobs have tags like "InLove", then there is another set of tags only found on living entities):

    I'm not talking about those, but the JSON entity tags described here: https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Tag

    I just noticed that 19w36a added a new entity tag, beehive_inhabitors. Currently it only tags bees... But there's no real point in adding an entity tag for only one entity.


    So I'm guessing that we're going to see another arthropod mob after all. At a guess, killer bees, since they're known for invading honeybee hives. But conceivably wasps or hornets.

    posted a message on the nether update

    The best part, in my view, is what we *haven't* seen yet. It was heavily implied that there will be more biomes besides the ones shown... And I'm hopeful we'll see more new mobs, too. (A spectral mob that isn't slowed down by soul sand would be terrifying in the Soulsand Valley!)


    That said, the biomes and mobs they have already shown are exciting already!

    It's just bees right now and they will update one of the biomes.


    They will add more stuff after that.


    Actually, we know that the mountains biome will not be updated in 1.15. It was implied that it won't even be in 1.16.


    Though you're right that we haven't seen all of 1.15 yet. I personally suspect that most of its changes will be "under the hood" - a mostly technical update.

    One oddity of the current situation is that we know the name of 1.16 (the Nether Update) but not 1.15!


    At any rate, it sounds like they're planning to push 1.15 out quickly. It's a small update, reminiscent of Frostburn.


    EDIT: An oddity I noticed wrt the Piglins. They're always hostile (unless you're wearing gold armor), but the zombie versions of them aren't. What's up with that? Is it like how regular zombies only attack humans (or villagers)?


    I wonder if Piglins will drop cooked porkchops the way zombie pigmen used to.

    The Nether Update will be 1.16 actually as confirmed on Twitter.


    Huh. So 1.15 really will be just bees and bugs, then.


    1.16 is shaping up to be amazing, though!

    Oh for gosh sakes not this voting tomfoolery again. ...Although I wouldn't mind seeing mountains get de-uglified to something like the pre-1.7 mountains/extreme hills.


    We definitely disagree there. I think the current mountains are magnificent, the best the game has yet seen. (I've been playing since a month before the Halloween Update, for reference.)



    All that said... It's looking like 1.15 will be a smaller one, at least that's the impression I'm getting. I hope we see more arthropod enemies keeping in line with the "bugs" part of the name. As it stands bane of arthropods is one of, if not the worst enchantment you can get on a sword given such mobs already go down quickly.



    I'm still not sure if the "Bees and Bugs" thing was a joke or not. It seems unlikely that they'd blow the big reveal at MineCon ahead of time!


    Good point about needing more arthropods to make the enchantment interesting, though!

    Looks like we're going to be voting on updating more biomes before the other two from last year are gotten to, that's unexpected.


    Who'd vote for a mega-rare biome like Badlands? I'm not sure which of the other two to pick... Swamps are extremely dull, but I spend much more time in mountains, and they could use some love too.
