Minecraft 1.16.0 (Nether Update)
The first released version of Minecraft 1.16 on Android is already available for download at the end of the article, but for now we will talk about the changes that the Nether Update brought. Among other things, already in version 18.104.22.168 biomes of warped forest, crimson forest, Soulsand Valley, Fog of the Nether Biome were added, new blocks and mobs were added!
Minecraft 1.16.0 developers have pleased us with three new biomes:
- Soulsand Valley - there is a turquoise fog in the biome, it is inhabited by wanderers of the region, gastes, skeletons and other hostile mobs, it is VERY dangerous here! Huge basalt columns extend to the very top, and ashes fall from the ceiling.
- Crimson forest - it is covered by a strange crimson cover decorated with mushrooms and vines hanging from everywhere in a red fog. Here, you can find new mobs added in Minecraft version 1.16: Hoglins, Piglins and Zombified Piglins.
- Warped forest - there is dark blue fog in this forest, strange spores are in the air, and the whole forest is covered with mushrooms and a strange coating. By the way, this is the least dangerous place in Hell
With new biomes and the updating of Hell in Minecraft PE 1.16, new blocks appeared:
- Two new non-flammable wood materials have appeared - a crimson and distorted stem.
- Basalt blocks - you can find them as pillars, but they can be placed in any direction!
- New blocks of the earth's surface: Crimson Nilium and Distorted Nilium.
- New Vegetation: Nether Sprouts, Crimson Roots and Distorted Roots
- Two types of mushrooms: crimson and distorted. To grow them, you can use bone meal!
- Distorted wart blocks.
- New Natural Light: Shroomlights
- Soul Soil Added! If you set fire to the soil of souls, you get a fire of souls that burns in a blue flame and never goes out, and also causes double damage in MCPE. The soil of souls can be used to create torches of souls and soul lanterns!
- Using bone meal on Netherrack can create Nilium.
A new mechanism has also been added: target! Which reacts to the hit of an arrow or trident. The closer you get to the center, the stronger the redstone signal will be.
Minecraft 1.16 and new mobs
Two new mods have been added: Piglins and Hoglins, as well as Zombie Piglins.
Piglins are neutral-hostile mobs in Minecraft Bedrock Edition and can be found in crimson forests and wastelands. Mobs will attack the players when they meet, but you can dress up and then they will not touch you! Some features of Piglin:
- Piglins are suspicious of strangers, and if they see that you open a chest or get a piece of gold, they will think that you are stealing and will treat you accordingly.
- Pigs love gold and are very distracted by gold items.
- Gold bullion is the currency for pigs, and you can drop the bullion in them or right-click on them to exchange various goods.
- Piglins need food, because when they are hungry, they prey on hoglins.
- Pigs prefer to hunt and fight in groups!
- Piglins that somehow fall into the netherworld quickly turn into zombies.
- Piglin cubs are practically not dangerous.
Zombie Pigmen are now converted to zombie Piglins.
Hoglins are large, aggressive, almost pigs that live in crimson forests in the lower world. As soon as you appear in their field of vision, they will try to attack, so be careful! A bit about hoglins:
- In Minecraft, you can breed hoglins by feeding them with purple mushrooms.
- Piglins sometimes hunt hoglins, but they don’t give up without a fight!
- Small hoglins behave aggressively, but at the same time they are harmless.
- Hoglins hate the smell of distorted mushrooms.
Netherit - a new high-strength material
With the help of new material in minecraft for android, you can update your diamond equipment! To get some neri, you need 4 gold bullion and 4 neri nugget, you can also find it in the mines of ancient ruins or in the lower parts of the Void. Important differences of nezerite:
- Netherit floats in lava!
- Its value is higher than that of diamond, but lower than that of gold.
- Nether tools are much cooler than diamond tools.
- Non-mercury weapons do more damage than diamond!
- Netherite armor will increase your defense, and you will also be immune to knockback!
