Minecraft Update 1.17 is coming in 2021 with a whole lot of new changes and features being added to the game.
The Minecraft Caves & Cliffs update is going to be huge for the game. The patch was announced at Minecraft Live 2020 back on October 3 and there are a bunch of changes and additions coming to Minecraft.
In a previous article, the additions to the game like new mobs, ores, and geographical oddities were covered. This article will detail the changes to existing parts of the game and some other new items. Caves will be covered deeper in a separate article.
Candle Cake: The cake block now has a variation where you can place a candle on an untouched cake. The candle is a new block in the game and it can modify the cake block. When a player eats any of the candle cake the candle will fall off.
Lava and Snow Cauldrons: Cauldrons can now hold lava and the new powder snow block. With the update there will be normal, water, lava, and powdered snow cauldrons in the game.
Lapis lazuli block: Now named “Block of Lapis lazuli”.
Rails: Rails can now be filled with water and will no longer break on contact with water.
