The Withering Effect - Minecraft Podcast / Episode 92: Improving Vanilla with Datapacks

Listen on

Episode notes

In this episode, DuDs and Jimbo discuss snapshot, 21w16a, for Minecraft 1.17, which tweaks the textures of raw ores and raw ore blocks, introduces dripstone growth and large, rare, snake-like underground ore veins. Plus, we have a question from our Discord members Genisis9032 about what new building DuDs and Jimbo would like added to villages and what kind of villager would work there. Also, the top ten datapacks they think should be part of vanilla Minecraft including shulker box tooltips, workstation highlights and mob/player head drops.
