On November 30, 2021, the bedrock and java versions of Minecraft received a new update patch ‘Caves and Cliffs Part 2’ that brought them to version 1.18 We are going to know all the changes and improvements that came to the game.
Highest height and depth in the world
The height and depth of the worlds have been extended to Y = 320 and Y = -64, opening up more space to explore and build. Existing worlds can be updated to include the new dimensions and functions. There will be a natural environmental transition to the new biomes.
New generation of terrain and mountains
The shape and elevation of the terrain are no longer necessarily determined by the biome. That means they can be combined to create follies like hilltop deserts. Mountains are taller than ever and can now be spawned with a maximum height of 256 blocks.
Eight new biomes
- Stalactite caves
- Lush caves
- Stony peaks
- Jagged peaks
- Snowy peaks
- Snowy slopes
New types of noise caves in update 1.18 ‘caves and cliffs part 2’ of Minecraft: large open ‘cheese style’ caves; ‘spaghetti style’, wide and with tunnels; and the narrow and winding ‘noodle style’ caves. Aquifers were also added that create bodies of water such as flooded caves or underground lakes.
Ore distribution and large ore veins
These long formations extend through cave systems and contain mineral deposits larger than the groups generally found underground. The ore distribution has been adjusted to compensate for the new global height.
Monsters will now only appear in complete darkness.
They added new music by Lena Raine and Kumi Tanioka. The “Otherside” disc can be found in the chests of the fortress corridor or, rarely, in the chests of the dungeons.
To listen to the new music you have to download the original music package from Minecraft updated, available FREE in store.
