Today marks the release of another, albeit small, step in the development of one of the largest perrenial sandbox games - Minecraft. The world filled with cubic blocks will not be expanded with exciting new features, but update 1.17.1 brings a lot of improvements to the content that appeared last month in the first part of the Caves & Cliffs update. The full list of changes can be found here.
In addition to the changes we already mentioned on the occasion of the snapshot that saved the axolotls, the breeding of these creatures has also been improved, and the blue variety can now only be obtained through breeding. The expansion of the goat enclosure has also been transformed. Less interesting aspects of gameplay have also been changed, such as the speed at which the cauldron is replenished with snow powder or the frequency at which copper bars drop from water monsters called drowners. There's also a sizable list of fixed bugs that have made the gameplay difficult for the players.
Today's foundation is a good preparation for Mojang for the release of second part of the Caves & Cliffs update, coming to Minecraft later, this year. Without a doubt, this is the segment of the expansion that most players have been waiting for - vast underground locations, dangerous creatures roaming in the darkness of deep caverns, and a completely new look at one of themost time-consuming aspects of the game, namely the mines.
