A snapshot review by Hipercreative

In today's snapshot we've got a fancy new mob added! It's quite shiny I have to admit...
I took some pictures for you to see all the new things.

"Today's Caves & Cliffs snapshot is particularly shiny! You could almost say it's glowing... Oh wait, that's a squid." -from the patch notes.

The list of new features:

  • Added Glow Lichen!
  • Added the Glow Squid! (They seem to emit some nice particles.)
These two look like this:

Glow Lichen

  • A dim light source that generates in caves
  • Use shears to pick it up
  • Use bonemeal to spread it along block surfaces

Glow Squid

Glow squids have been added, but do not yet spawn naturally. You can find spawn eggs for them in the creative inventory.
  • Glow Squids are well-lit and can be seen from even far distances!
  • When killed, Glow Squids drop Glow Ink Sacs
  • Glow Ink Sacs can be used on signs to make the text super visible, even at night! Works with colors!
  • Craft a Glow Item Frame by combining a Glow Ink Sac with an Item Frame in a Crafting Table. Any item in a Glow Item Frame is perfectly illuminated, even at night!
  • Use an Ink Sac on a sign to remove the glow effect
  • Axolotls will attack any Glow Squids they see, so...be careful

Changes in 21w03a

  • Dripstone blocks can be crafted from 4 pointed dripstone

The rest of the changes are bug fixes so those who are interested in that should take a look at the patch notes themselves. If you find any bugs report them on the MC Issue Tracker please!

Just tested these! I feel that Mojang imported the glow squid better than we expected! (at least better than a re-textured squid)

I did find some bugs here and there but apart from those yes, they did a good job! (I also noticed that the mountains seem to have changed, might be only me but I think they changed the world gen a bit too.)
