Episode notes

In this episode, DuDs and Jimbo discuss snapshot, 21w10a, for Minecraft 1.17, that adds the Lush Caves underground biome (currently only in single-biome worlds), Cracked Deepslate Bricks, Cracked Deepslate Tiles and an Infested variant of Deepslate. This snapshot also has a number of technical changes including moving the game to the OpenGL 3.2 core profile. Also, the Overworld ore generation has been tweaked with more Emeralds in mountains, more Lapis, less Copper, Gold, and Redstone, smaller Diamond blobs, but slightly more frequent, less Diamond ore overall, less Iron, and it generates lower down and finally reduced air exposure for Coal. Plus, our Discord has been discussing the lack of Cliffs in the Caves and Cliffs update, we all agree the Mountains are gorgeous but where are the Cliffs?
