Minecraft 1.16.5

Minecraft 1.16.5 was released a few days ago. We plan to add support for this version in the third snapshot, after a recommended Minecraft Forge release for 1.16.5 is available. MCreator Link support for 1.16.5 is planned too. We are also working on some more features for this release. Translators are also welcome to join us and help translate MCreator to as many languages as possible.

Make sure to tell us what you think about the update in the comments, test out the snapshot, and report bugs (only by you reporting the bugs properly, we can assure a bug-free release) in the snapshot. Keep on modding!

How i can download this snapshot? because it's fantastic snapshot

Just curious, will the dimensions support everything you can do with the now-JSON dimensions in 1.16? Currently it looks about the same, but 1.16 dimensions can have a TON easily customized with stuff as simple as a single boolean or number. I forget the full list but I imagine it wouldn't be extremely difficult to implement.


My favorite thing about these new updates is finding out about new features that I didn't expect to see, but would come in so handy when making mods. I never knew that I would need colorizing blocks, but boy do I love the idea! :D

I had a bug happen where stair blocks don't place right in this particular snapshot IDK why. I could of goofed something up and am unaware of it.

One suggestion I have if there is a feature to add plants to spawn on Nylium in the nether (I think this will be good addition since it's 1.16 the nether update.)
