Minecraft 1.16 Snapshot 20w20a

Today, the snapshot 20w20a of Minecraft version 1.16 is now available in your launcher. This one is about Progress, it adds new ones and modifies others.

  • Added new Progress for the Nether :
    • “Hidden in the Depths”: Getting a block of Ancient Debris.
    • “Cover Me in Debris”: Get a full set of armor in Netherite.
    • “Country Lode, Take Me Home”: Using a Compass on a Lodestone.
    • “Who Is Cutting Onions?” “Who Is Cutting Onions?” : Get a block of Weeping Obsidian.
    • “Not Quite “Nine” Lives”: Load a reappearing Anchor to maximum.
    • “This Boat Has Legs” : Ride a Surveyor with a Deformed Mushroom on a stick.
    • “Hot Tourist Destinations”: Visit all the biomes of the Nether.
    • “Those Were the Days”: Entering Bastion Remains.
    • “War Pigs”: Open a chest of bastion remains.
    • “Oh Shiny”: To give an item made of gold to a Piglin.
  • Modifications to some of the Advances:
    • Progress “Bull’s-eye!” (“Bullseye”) now requires you to be 30 blocks from the Target.
    • Serious Dedication” progress is now obtained when the player has a Netherite hoe, rather than breaking a Diamond hoe.
    • Obtaining Black Rock now counts towards “Stone Age” progress.
    • The Surveyor is now counted in the progress “The Parrots and the Bats” and “Two by two”.
  • Added a new menu to change the game mode
    • The F3+F4 key combination displays a menu to quickly change the game mode (Creative, Survival, Adventure or Spectator).
      • Using the scroll wheel or continuing to press F4 will scroll through the list. Releasing F3 will activate the game mode.
    • The basic game mode will always be first in the list.
  • The F3+N shortcut now saves the current game mode before switching to spectator mode.
    • For example if the player is in survival mode and switches to spectator mode using the F3+N shortcut, he will switch back to survival mode if he uses the shortcut again instead of switching to creative mode.
  • Shulkers with the tag “NoAI” can now be invoked with a rotation
  • Added progress triggers “thrown_item_picked_up_by_entity”, “player_generates_container_loot” and “item_used_on_block“.
  • Removal of the Progress trigger “safely_harvest_honey“.
