Minecraft’s Latest Snapshot Comes With A New Cubemap And Random Quantity Generator

While you hearth up Minecraft’s newest snapshot, you’ll be treated to a new cubemap gently revolving behind the sandbox game’s important menu. It’s a giant, vast open scene from the upcoming Caves and Cliffs: Part II patch, and it seems fairly nice. But that’s not the only factor that’s been changed in this update: Java edition Minecraft’s random number generator has been swapped out, too.

“We’ve changed the random quantity generator used for world generation, which makes more seeds come out as totally different… but it also moves every thing around in the world, so expect all worlds to look totally different in this snapshot,” Mojang explains in the snapshot’s changelog.

Snapshot 21W41A makes a couple of other key adjustments. Geodes can now only generate up to top 30, and the frequency with which they spawn has been introduced again consistent with the place it was circa Minecraft 1.17. The opposite top-line change on this snapshot is that Mojang has increased the angle at which you can sprint in opposition to a block without the collision breaking your spring.

You may read the total patch notes over at the official site.
