Minecraft Patch Notes 2.24 / 1.17

New Features:

Axolotl

  • Axolotls are amphibious creatures that spawn in underground water
  • Holding a Bucket of Tropical Fish will cause nearby Axolotls to follow the player on both land and in water. Axolotls cannot be tamed but can be bred by feeding them Buckets of Tropical Fish
  • Axolotl will attack Fish, Squid, Drowned, and Guardians!
  • Axolotls come in a variety of colors, all with an equal chance of spawning except for blue. Blue Axolotls have a small chance of spawning as a mutation when breeding two Axolotls
  • Axolotls can survive on dry land for a few minutes. After that they will start to dry out and take continuous damage until rehydrated
  • When taking damage, there is a chance that the Axolotl will play dead. While playing dead, the Axolotl will regenerate health and mobs will be unable to target the Axolotl
  • When a player kills a mob that the Axolotl was attacking, they are rewarded with the regeneration effect and their mining fatigue is removed, if they had it
  • Axolotls can be picked up with buckets, just like fish!

Goat

  • The winning mob of the MINECON Live 2019 mob vote!
  • For now, Goats spawn in Extreme Hills. This will change with Caves & Cliffs: Part II
  • Goats will occasionally ram into players and other mobs

Glow Ink Sac and Glowing Sign Text

  • If a Sign is interacted with a Glow Ink Sac, the text will then get a glowing effect

Powder Snow 

  • Mobs inside a block of powder snow start to freeze and eventually take damage 
  • Players can protect themselves from powder snow by equipping leather armor 
  • Cauldrons fill up in snowy weather, creating a renewable source of powder snow. It will also generate naturally in certain snowy biomes when Caves & Cliffs: Part II releases
  • Buckets can be used to scoop up and place powder snow 
  • Most mobs cannot walk on powder snow and fall into the block instead 
  • Skeletons transform into strays after standing in powder snow for awhile
  • Wearing Leather Boots allows a player or mob to walk on Powder Snow without falling in

Glow Lichen

  • A dim light source that appears on cave walls and in underground lakes
  • Use bone meal to spread it along block surfaces and harvest it using shears

Amethyst Geodes

  • These huge Geodes can be found anywhere underground of newly generated chunks in the Overworld
  • Amethyst Geodes have an outer layer of Smooth Basalt Blocks and a second layer of Calcite Blocks
  • Inside Geodes, there is an inner layer of various Amethyst Blocks
  • All types of Amethyst blocks (including Clusters) create beautiful sounds when you walk on them, break them, place them, or hit them with a projectile – go make some music!
  • Amethyst comes in block form inside the Geodes in two ways: Block of Amethyst Block and Budding Amethyst

Amethyst Clusters

  • Amethyst Clusters grow from budding Amethyst, which can be found inside Geodes
  • Clusters have four growth stages: Small Amethyst Bud, Medium Amethyst Bud, Large Amethyst Bud, and Amethyst Cluster
  • Fully-grown Amethyst clusters drop four Amethyst Shards (or more with the Fortune enchantment) when a Pickaxe is used, and drop two Amethyst Shards when broken by hand, Piston, or other means
  • Clusters can be mined with the Silk Touch enchantment at any stage of growth

Budding Amethyst

  • On any side of a Budding Amethyst Block where there is air or a water source block, a Small Amethyst Bud will eventually grow
  • Amethyst Buds can only grow when attached to Budding Amethyst, and will grow until they become a full Amethyst Cluster

Cluster Amethyst Blocks

  • Clusters can only grow when they are placed on budding Amethyst Blocks

Amethyst Shards

  • Amethyst Shards are items used in a variety of crafting recipes

Tinted Glass

  • Though visually transparent, light does not pass through Tinted Glass
  • Can be crafted by putting a Glass Block in the middle of four Amethyst Shards on a Crafting Table
  • Tinted Glass can be obtained without the Silk Touch enchantment and does not shatter when broken, like normal Glass

Copper

  • Copper Ore can now be found underground in newly generated chunks and can be smelted into Copper Ingots
  • Block of Copper and Cut Copper can be crafted, as well as stairs and slabs
  • After being placed in the world, Copper Blocks will oxidize slowly over time, turning to exposed Copper, Weathered Copper, and Oxidized Copper
  • Copper Blocks that are not fully oxidized can be waxed to prevent further oxidation, either by using a Honeycomb item on them, by using the crafting grid, or by using a Dispenser loaded with Honeycombs
  • Axes can scrape off wax and oxidation from Copper Blocks

Lightning Rod

  • All lightning strikes that happen within a radius of 64 blocks from a Lightning Rod will strike the Lightning Rod
  • Lightning rods can be crafted using Copper ingots in a Crafting Table

Spyglass

  • The Spyglass is used to see far away places and can be crafted with Copper Ingots and an Amethyst Shard
  • Camera movement when looking through a Spyglass is slowed to make it more comfortable to use. This is adjustable using the Spyglass Damping slider in Settings on Bedrock Edition

Raw Ore Items

  • Added Raw Copper, Raw Iron, and Raw Gold items
  • Ores that are smeltable now drop raw item forms of the ore instead of the ore block, and these can be smelted just like before
  • This is to prevent cluttering the inventory and have consistency with Fortune on all ores
  • Ore blocks are still smeltable, meaning you can still smelt ore blocks you've obtained previously or with the Silk Touch enchantment

Raw Ore Blocks

  • Added block of Raw Copper, Raw Iron, and Raw Gold
  • Just like other ore materials, you can craft a compact block with raw ore items to save inventory space or use as decoration
  • Raw ore blocks can be placed on a crafting grid to break down into the original raw ore items

Deepslate

  • Deepslate is generated in blobs below y = 16
  • Mining it with a Pickaxe will drop Cobbled Deepslate, which can be smelted back into Deepslate
  • When ore is generated in the same place as Deepslate, Deepslate variants of that ore are now generated instead
  • Deepslate Blocks can be crafted into Polished Deepslate, Deepslate Tile, and Deepslate Brick Blocks, including slabs, stairs, and walls
  • Deepslate Blocks also come in Cracked Tile, Cracked Brick, Chiseled, and Infested variants
  • Stone tools can be crafted using Cobbled Deepslate

Tuff
