After a little testing, I found that 'Caves' generate them. I also found that without 'Caves' selected, Water caves still generate and there is a large chance of Mcreator itself crashing. I'll look into both.

Can we make custom blockstates for block in this update? This will be so helpful for plants, workstations blocks, or some kind of color/shape changing blocks that need a blockstates for each look/model.

Downloaded the snapshot, ran the exe file and nothing is happening, what do I do?

Neat! Progress seems to be going well :)

What I was wondering was, since the changelog lists a bunch of procedure elements to work with multiple (ar at least more specifically defined) passengers on a mount, does this mean in a full release there will be additional new features to make it easer to create mounts/ vehicle-like entities with multiple passengers to them?

Previously I was only able to achieve something similar in MCreator with akind of passenger seat-entit that was tracking the main mount.

The projectile update is so nice! I love the fireball option and the pictures beside the projectiles in the selector :) Like this is my favorite update. It will help a LOT with my magic mod.

I want to ask,
Through procedures I can get list of custom biomes, entities and other builtin mod element types (they are visible with prefix "CUSTOM:")
How can i do the same with the custom mod element type i create? I can't really find a way to do this but i need it.

I found that class "BlocklyJavaScriptBridge" returns things like that but maybe it's not prepared for returning list of elements of custom types or maybe im doing sth wrong uwu.

Another snapshot full of great additions. Patiently waiting for a good way to make custom entities hop around instead of walk though 👀

I wish the full release is soon I can't wait need to start using the new things!!!!!

Hey Mcreator Devs Will There Be a Sound Detection System Added? Like For Mobs Or Blocks? . Like The Vibration system in vanilla Minecraft In 1.19? . Cuz I Like To Make Deep Dark Mods And Add My Own Custom Ideas.

Hi! I’m new here. How do I upload to MCreator? Where do I download the file? Thanks, Klemen!

when 1.19 support comes out do you think you could make custom items/entities for frogs to eat?

in the mcreator 2022.3, you can support three versions (1.16- PLS
Or four (1.16-1.17-1.18-1.19)
thank you
