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


  • Tweaked the texture of raw ores and raw ore blocks, New raw ore textures in snapshot 21w16a


  • Ore veins are large, rare, snake-like underground ore formations
  • Copper veins form above height 0 and are mixed with granite
  • Iron veins form below height 0 and are mixed with tuff
  • Users who previously permanently declined server resource packs will now still be shown the pack prompt if the pack is mandatory (instead of being immediately disconnected)
  • The statistic for play time has been renamed to play_time
  • There is now a statistic for “Time with World Open” (total_world_time) that also includes the time when the game was paused
