Themes contest

As we announced on our social channels, the contest will be extended to the pre-release stage of MCreator. Due to quite a big number of themes already submitted (and we are sure there are more to come), the contest may run in two stages, pre-selection voting and the final two themes voting. Keep in mind that any themes that use copyrighted content or we suspect they do are not eligible for the contest.

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!

nice snapshot, in next snapshot will biomes generated on nether and end?

And Btw A Huge Thank You For That Redstone And Other Features And Patches

Will the ability to create your own generation type ever be added?

Sorry for a lot of features ideas, but as I create new update for my mod, I start to see small features that could be soo helpful. It would be awesome if there is Tag support for all "choose item" panels, not only in crafting recipes. For example, enchantments item applying, GUI slot's item limiting or repair items for tools. Enchantment one is especially needed for me, as it breaks a bit integration/add-on support I just implemented (I can choose only weapons from my mod, but can't make it compatibile with others via "forge" item Tag).
Just an idea, but would be cool to fill these gaps, especially if it would be relatively easy ^^

Are you going to include support for 1.17 in this update? I need it for a mod. Definitely not because of the axolotl. Definitely not. Not because he is the cutest mob in the game or because he needs his code to make a custom axolotl that is the same but in lava. It is definitely not because of that.

Spoiler: If that's why I need it.

Will There be a fix for the totem like procedure not working and not showing onscreen
