Snapshot release notes

  • Removed additional generation conditions from blocks and plants. Existing blocks and plants using those conditions will be automatically converted to fully equivalent feature mod elements
  • Dimension restriction parameters were removed. Instead, biome restrictions with tags should be used when needed. Existing workspaces will be converted for cases of single-dimension restriction. For multiple-dimension restrictions, a new biome tag with biomes or biome tags from these dimensions needs to be manually added.
  • [Plugins] Custom Blockly categories can declare their parent category, supporting a tree-like toolbox

Klemen, will the creation of crafts on the Smithing table be updated for version 1.20+?

Will there ever be a "generate biome in the end" for biomes?

PyloDev, where can I post my ideas?
I am working on a big project and have ideas for Mcreator

A few ideas for gui: make some element or all transparent (RenderSystem.setShaderColor), anchor some element (e.g. text) to the middle of another element (e.g. picture).

Hey Klemen, when will the full update be out? Or when will the "shields" tool type be available to use?

can i use this snapshot version to continue my onw mod developing, like if 2023.4 is released it would be wrong things, bc i want to quickly use new features in my mod

pls add a very useful feature - to set for pictures and buttons-pictures their own length and width in gui editor.

I know that it is possible to make images 1x or 2x, could you make it possible to choose how much x, for example 0.5x? And also make x selection for button pictures
