Minecraft just released the first Nether Update Snapshot and we couldn't be more excited! There are so many new features, blocks, biomes and a new ore in addition to bug fixes. It may just be our newest favorite update (nothing will ever beat the bees!) Alright, so here's the scoop!




🌳 NEW BIOMES!
Three to be exact! All unique and so tempting to explore!

CRIMSON FOREST

Crimson is another word for "Red" so it's no surprise that this biome is red-themed! Red also means danger, so tread lightly!

Huge fungi with weeping vines appear to make up the "trees" of this biome. The floor is covered in crimson Nylium with crimson roots growing, which you can't miss when entering this biome!

Hoglins wander these forests, you might spot them through the bright red fog!

SOULSAND VALLEY
This biome are LARGE cages composed mostly of Soul Sand and Soul Soil. You'll find Basalt pillars from floor to ceiling and fossil remains of unknown creatures!


What's that over there?! Is that a....skeleton?! Could hardley make it out with all of this ash falling in the air!

This biome offers a blue glow, making it inviting but also a bit eerie at the same time.

Soulsand Valley


WARPED FOREST
You'll first notice the bright blue blocks beneath you - that's warped nylium carpets! New vegitation like warped stems and fungi can be found here! Similarly to the Crimson Valley, HUGE Warped Fungi make up the "trees" of this forest! Shroomlight light up the forest floor. Warped spores travel through the air.

This biome is the least hostile place of the three!


Note: The NETHER BIOME is now called Nether Wastes.

crop_square NEW NETHER BLOCKS!
There's a lot of em! Like A LOT - and we're not complaining!
  • Blue Fire a variant of fire (pictured right) that gernerates in the soulsalnd valley. Fire lit of soul soil will be blue fire regardless of dimension
  • Nether Fungi two variants: Crimson and Warped. Bone meal grows them and can be used to breed hoglins!
  • Crimson and Warped Stem new wood-like materials; that make up the trunks in the netherwart forest
  • Soul Soil generates in the soulsand valley alongside soul sand. burns blue with a blue flame whenever fire burns on it. Also can be used to craft Soul Torches which can be crafted into Soul Lanterns
  • Basalt found as pillars in the soul Sand Valleys. Can be placed in any direction.
  • Warped Wart Block variant of the nether wart block and generates in the warped forest as part of the Nether trees.
  • Shroomlight a new natural light source! Resemples glowstone
  • Crimson and Warped Nylium grows on top of netherrack, and resembles grass blocks. Comes in red and blue.
  • Weeping Vines grow from the bottom of a block dowwnards
  • Ancient Debris spawns low and can be used to make Netherite.

NETHERITE
Netherite is the highest-level material and you can use to upgrade your diamond gear! Who would've thought that DIAMONDS could be upgraded...and if you couldn't tell, it's found in the Nether!

Items made with Netherrite last longer and work faster (i.e. TOOLS) and do more damage (i.e. WEAPONS).
  • items float in lava
  • Weapons do more damage than a diamont and armor has higher toughness and durability.
  • armor made of Netherite gives you knockback resistance, so you barely get knocked back at all!
Alright I must need it but how do I make it?!

First, you must mine Ancient Debris in the depths of the nether. Then refine it in a Furnace to make Netherite Scrap!

The recipe is: 4 Nether Scrap + 4 Gold Ignots = Netherite Ingot!

pets A NEW MOB!

OH. MY. Gersh! Look at that HOGLIN! Yep, that's the NEW MOB! You'll find them walking around aimlessly in the Crimson Forest and as of right now, they don't hurt you. Kill them if you must, but you won't reap any benefits besides a rotten flesh. And the loss of your dignity.

This is a complete game changer. Imagine all the servers that now need to change how their PVP systems work. Netherite is going to be crazy. Now all we need is harder enemies to fight.

Go to your Minecraft launcher, click on "Installations", and click the box that says "Snapshots". If I recall correctly, this should give you a button to launch Minecraft with the update.

I have found a easy(-ish) way to find ancient debris!
all you need is to be at 15 on the y axis and have 32 TNT and a flint and steel.

Did they not include piglins in the snapshot, or did they just trash the idea all together? They seemed like a pretty cool concept to me.

It just wasn't included yet. I am sure they have a lot of things to come and they will include them in the snapshots when they are ready.

Only thing that I'm worried about is that diamond could become obsolete after a certain point, personally i think that they should make Netherite items repairable with levels and diamonds to make sure they can stay with having a good use

I personally think it will be extremely rare to see anyone wearing more than one or two pieces of netherite armor. It’s only a little better than diamond, and honestly so rare that it’s debatable weather it’s even worth getting a full set or not.

Diamonds will not become obsolete, simply for the same reason that people still mine iron, redstone, emeralds, stone and gold. And diamonds will still be easier to find too.

The new Basalt block would be awesome to get a slab and stair variant off! :D Thus making more dark and gothic-ish horror houses easier to make in vanilla :D

Im very favorable with most of the things that are being added to 1.16. But the netherite thing kinda bummers me.

Isn't it like that for every minecraft update?

We didn't know we needed turtle hats until they released them.

I didn't need help on cheats until minecraft put them there.

Oh and right now if you break a crimson door you get two doors instead of one.

Nether Update is going to be great. I fell in love with the Crimson Forest Biome! I didn't expect Netherite to be added at all, and this element is great (RIP Diamonds)! I was really surprised!

Finally, a use for gold: stronger-than-diamond netherite equipment.

My vote is Other- wall blocks will finally show up as continuous walls instead of having gaps, and that will be extremely helpful for my builds.

For the whole update, I'm most excited about the piglins. Zombie pigmen/zombie piglins have been too mysterious for too long, and I'm glad to see the remnants of their once-proud civilization hanging in there. In this snapshot, the epic new nether biomes. They are so perfect, even their names are awesome!
