Minecraft 1.17 Snapshot 21w16a – Patch Notes (Today, April 21)
Here are the complete patch notes of Minecraft Snapshot 21w16a.
Snapshot 21w16a Minecraft 1.17 Updated Features:
- Azalea and Flowering Azalea can now be bonemealed to get an Azalea Trees
- Added dripstone growth
- If a stalactite is hanging from a dripstone block with a water source above, it will slowly grow both the stalactite from above and a stalagmite from below
- Growth speed is random but very slow, a single growth step can take several minecraft days
- A stalactite will only grow up to 7 blocks long
- A stalactite will only cause stalagmite growth if the floor or stalagmite below is within 10 blocks
- If the stalactite tip is inside water it won’t drip, and therefore won’t trigger any growth
- If the stalagmite tip is inside water it won’t receive drops, and therefore won’t be grown by a dripping stalactite. Same thing if there is any fluid between the two tips
- A stalagmite or stalactite will never grow into a fluid
