The following changes were added previously.

Archaeology: Uncovering Ancient Treasures

The Trails and Tales update introduces a new archeology system, allowing players to uncover ancient treasures hidden throughout the world. To get started, players will need to craft a new tool called a brush. The brush can be used to reveal hidden items within suspicious blocks, which can be found in various structures throughout the world.

Once a suspicious block has been revealed, players can collect the hidden item. Items that can be found include pottery sherds, sniffer eggs, and music discs. Pottery sherds can be used to craft decorated pots, which can be used to display unique decorations. Sniffer eggs can be hatched to create sniffer mobs, which can be used to help players find hidden items. Music discs are rare items that can be played to generate music.

Smithing Templates: Personalize Your Armor

The Trails and Tales update also introduces a new system for customizing armor. Players can now use smithing templates to add trims and patterns to their armor. Trims can be made from a variety of materials, including iron, copper, gold, lapis, emerald, and diamond. Patterns can be found in various structures throughout the world.

To use a smithing template, players will need to place it in the first slot of a smithing table. In the second slot, players will need to place the armor piece they want to customize. In the third slot, players will need to place the material they want to use for the trim. Once the materials have been placed, players can click on the smithing table to apply the trim and pattern to the armor.

Armor Trims: Customizing Your Protection

Armor trims offer players the opportunity to personalize their armor further. When using the same material for the trim as the armor piece itself, the resulting pattern will have a slightly darker color.

Material Matching and Color Variation

Armor trims offer players the opportunity to personalize their armor further. When using the same material for the trim as the armor piece itself, the resulting pattern will have a slightly darker color.

Leather Armor and Colorful Combinations

Leather armor can also be enhanced with armor trims, allowing players to combine dyed leather armor with any color of armor trims, creating vibrant and unique combinations.

Crafting and Duplication

Crafting armor trims onto armor consumes all the necessary inputs. However, players can duplicate templates before using them. To duplicate a template, players need to place the template, seven diamonds, and a stone block of the corresponding type in a crafting table, resulting in two smithing templates.

Unique Patterns and Rarity

There are 16 different armor trim smithing templates, each associated with a unique pattern. These patterns can only be obtained from specific structures, meaning players will need to explore various locations to collect all possible patterns. It’s important to note that the chances of obtaining these patterns are not uniform, with some being rarer than others.

Showcase of Armor Trims and Locations

To provide players with a comprehensive overview of all the available trims and their respective locations, slicedlime has created a video showcasing the different combinations of armor materials, patterns, and trim materials. The Trail Ruins, for instance, offer four trims: Wayfinder, Raiser, Shaper, and Host, all belonging to the rare loot table for archaeology. Duplicating any of these trims requires a terracotta block. Other trims, such as Sentry, Dune, Coast, Wild, Tide, Vex, Ward, Silence, Rib, Snout, Eye, and Spire, can be found in various structures, each requiring a specific duplication material.

The Sniffer: A New Mob

Sniffer Egg and Hatching

The Trails and Tales update introduces the Sniffer, a mob that won the latest mob vote. Players can find the sniffer egg by using a brush on suspicious sand in warm ocean ruins. Placing the sniffer egg on a moss block will cause it to hatch into a Snifflet, a process that takes approximately 10 minutes. However, if the egg is placed on any other block, the hatching time doubles.

Sniffer Behavior and Drops

The sniffer is a passive mob with 14 health (7 hearts) and a size slightly under 2×2 full blocks. Sniffers wander around, sniffing the air and occasionally digging for seeds. This behavior results in the appearance of two new items: torchflower seeds or pitcher pods. The torchflower seed can be used to tempt and breed Sniffers, leading to the generation of a sniffer egg as an item. Baby sniffers also consume torchflower seeds, accelerating their growth. Torchflower seeds can be planted in farmland, creating a torchflower crop that grows through intermediate stages before reaching full maturity. Harvesting the crop during the first two stages yields seeds, while harvesting the fully grown flower grants the flower itself. Torchflowers can be planted on dirt-like blocks, placed in flower pots, or crafted into orange dye. Additionally, torchflowers can be used as an ingredient for suspicious stews, providing a night vision effect. It’s important to note that despite its name, the torchflower does not illuminate its surroundings.

Pitcher Pod and Cyan Dye

When a pitcher pod is planted in farmland, it grows into a pitcher crop with five growth stages before maturing into a fully grown pitcher plant, a two-block tall plant. Breaking the pitcher plant before it’s fully grown returns the pod. The pitcher pod can also be planted but, like other tall flowers, cannot be placed in a flower pot. Furthermore, players can craft two pieces of cyan dye from a fully grown pitcher pod.

The Camel: A Desert Companion

Introduction to Camels

The Trails and Tales update introduces the Camel, a new passive mob with 32 health (16 hearts). Each Desert Village naturally generates with a single camel.

Camels and Cactus

Camels can be guided and led by players holding cactus. Additionally, players can feed cactus to camels to heal them and initiate breeding. Camels also possess a slow natural healing ability over time.

Riding Camels

By saddling a camel, players can ride and control them, using them as reliable mounts for desert exploration.

Camel Riding and Abilities

6.1 Dual Player Control and Height Advantage When riding a camel, two players can coordinate their actions effectively. The first player assumes the role of the camel’s steersman, while the second player is free to engage in other activities, such as combat. Due to their tall stature, player-height mobs cannot reach players on top of a camel. Additionally, camels have long legs that allow them to step over fences effortlessly.

6.2 Lazy Camels and Movement Mechanics Camels exhibit a lazy behavior by occasionally lying down and needing to slowly get up before resuming movement. When riding a camel, players can choose between two movement speeds: a slow walk and a sprint. Furthermore, camels possess a unique dash move, activated by pressing the jump button. This dash propels the camel forward, consuming its stamina. When executed perfectly, a dash can extend for more than 10 blocks. However, after dashing, the camel enters a recovery period during which it cannot sprint or dash again for a few seconds. It’s worth noting that during the camel’s recovery time, players have a chance to drop a quick like on the video, as the effort put into creating these videos is significant and every like helps with the YouTube algorithm.

6.3 Cherry Grove Biome: A Vibrant World Generation Change The Trails and Tales update introduces the Cherry Grove biome, a new mountain biome that shares similarities with the meadows biome in terms of location. This biome is characterized by the presence of cherry trees with vibrant pink leaves and a new type of log called Cherry Logs. The tree trunks of cherry trees feature distinctive forks or bends high up, supporting large, round canopies of cherry leaves. In some instances, cherry trees also spawn with bees nests, providing a serene and natural atmosphere.

6.4 Cherry Grove Wood Set and Pink Petals Cherry logs bring a new wood set to Minecraft, including logs and stripped logs, wood and stripped wood, planks, stairs, slabs, fences, fence gates, doors, trapdoors, buttons, pressure plates, signs, hanging signs, boats, and chest boats. The cherry leaves in the biome emit pink particles that fall beneath them. On the ground of the cherry grove, players can discover a unique type of vegetation called pink petals. These pink petals can be obtained by either breaking blocks with pink petals on the ground or by using bone meal on blocks within the cherry grove biome. Each block can hold up to four petals, and breaking a block yields the same number of petals it contained. These petals can be placed in any orientation on top of a block, and stacking multiple petals in a single block increases the total quantity. Applying bone meal to a block with petals also increases the number of petals it contains.

The Trails and Tales update introduces dynamic camel riding mechanics, the breathtaking Cherry Grove biome, and a host of new building materials. These additions enhance gameplay possibilities, aesthetic options, and exploration experiences for Minecraft players.

Chiseled Bookshelf and Mining

The right tool to mine a chiseled bookshelf is an axe. When mined with an axe, the books inside will spill out on the ground, similar to mining a chest. However, if a regular axe is used, the bookshelf itself will vanish. To obtain the chiseled bookshelf as a block, you need to use a tool enchanted with Silk Touch.

Calibrated Sculk Sensor and Amethyst Resonance

The Trails and Tales update introduces a new version of the Sculk Sensor called the Calibrated Sculk Sensor. It can be crafted using a sculk sensor and three amethyst shards. The calibrated sculk sensor has an input side that accepts a redstone signal, and the strength of that signal determines the only vibration frequency that the sensor will react to. Calibrated sculk sensors have an increased detection range of up to 16 blocks compared to the regular sculk sensors, which detect up to 8 blocks. The timing of the calibrated sculk sensor is also shorter. Both types of sensors now provide more reliable distance calculations and strongly power the block they’re placed on. The timings have been adjusted to 30 ticks (1.5 seconds) for the sculk sensor and 10 ticks (half a second) for the calibrated sculk sensor, followed by a 10 tick (half a second) cooldown. Previously, sculk sensors were active for 40 ticks and had a single tick of cooldown. Additionally, a new mechanic called amethyst resonance has been added. Blocks of amethyst placed next to a sculk sensor will relay any vibrations detected by the sensor at the same frequency, allowing for the forwarding of vibration signals over longer distances without losing the frequency.

New Vibration Frequencies and Sculk Shriekers

Vibration frequencies in Minecraft have been revamped and organized into simpler frequency groups. The new frequency groups include:

  • Movements on land, in water, or in the air
  • Landing on any solid or fluid surface
  • Item interactions
  • Gliding with elytra or unique mob actions
  • Dismounting a mob or equipping gear
  • Mounting or interacting with mobs
  • Mobs and players getting damaged
  • Consuming items
  • Blocks deactivating
  • Blocks activating
  • Blocks changing
  • Blocks being destroyed
  • Blocks being placed
  • Mobs and players teleporting or spawning
  • Mobs and players dying and explosions

Sculk shriekers, when waterlogged, now silence their shrieks while retaining other effects.

Mob Heads and Note Blocks

The Trails and Tales update introduces new functionality for mob heads. Piglins now drop their heads when killed by a charged Creeper, similar to how zombies and skeletons drop their heads. When a mob head is placed on top of a note block, the note block will produce sounds similar to the ambient sounds of that mob. Interacting with the block or powering it with redstone will play a random selection of the ambient sound.

New Advancements and Crafting Changes

The update includes eight new advancements, including achievements related to obtaining a sniffer egg, feeding a snifflet, planting a sniffer seed, brushing a suspicious block to obtain a pottery sherd, making a Decorated Pot out of pottery sherds, crafting a trimmed armor at a Smithing Table, applying eight smithing templates, and placing a comparator that reads the strength of a chiseled bookshelf. Additionally, there have been crafting changes where wool blocks, carpets, and beds can now be recolored regardless of their original color. Crafting any color of wool block, carpet, or bed with one dye in any shape will result in a redyed version of the block. The recipe for dyeing eight carpets at once no longer exists.

Loot Generation and Enchanting Changes

The Trails and Tales update introduces deterministic random sequences for generating loot drops. Previously, loot drops for things like mob drops, bartering, and fishing were not tied to the world seed, but now they will always be the same in a world of a given seed. Additionally, an enchanting change allows for replaceable blocks such as grass or dead bushes to be placed between an enchanting table and the surrounding bookshelves without affecting the level gained on the enchanting table. It is also possible to remove the custom name from an item by blanking out the name in an anvil, which restores its original name but prevents it from stacking with an entirely unnamed item of the same type.

Shields and Mounts

Shields now once again block damage from TNT explosions. Additionally, jump boost, slow falling, and levitation effects now properly apply to mounts such as horses. Saddled horses no longer indefinitely keep the Levitation effect, and riding an entity with slow falling will now correctly prevent fall damage.

Kill Attribution and Death Messages

A change has been made to how kills are counted. The last player to attack a target is now always counted as the killer for the purpose of the death message, statistics, and advancements.

Unicode Font and Emojis

The game now features an updated version of the Unicode font, enabling a wider range of characters, including emojis. However, entering emojis in the game is not as straightforward as in some chat applications. To input an emoji, players will need to use external methods such as copy-pasting or the emoji finder on Windows by pressing the Windows key and period.

User Interface Changes

Several user interface changes have been implemented. The application icon for the game has been updated to a grass block in full release versions and a dirt block in snapshot versions. The Minecraft logo has also been refreshed, and the main menu background now showcases a Trails & Tales panorama featuring a cherry grove biome. Additionally, six new splash texts have been added, providing amusing messages and hints.

New Languages and Scroll Direction

Two new languages, Lao and Yakut, have been added to Minecraft. The Minecraft credits have also been updated, and players can now hold the up arrow key to reverse the scroll direction. Moreover, in the Video Settings screen, players can adjust the UI scale by holding the control key and using the scroll wheel.

New Music Tracks and Disc

Four new music tracks composed by Aaron Cherof have been added to the general soundtrack, each playing in different combinations of overworld biomes. The tracks are “A Familiar Room,” “Bromeliad,” “Crescent Dunes,” and “Echo in the Wind.” Additionally, a new music disc called “Relic” by Aaron Cherof has been introduced. Players can find it as rare loot in trail ruins during archaeology, and playing it in a jukebox produces a comparator output of level 14.

Performance Improvements

The Trails and Tales update brings some significant performance enhancements. Native support for ARM64 Windows computers has been added, leading to noticeable performance improvements for Windows ARM64 devices like certain Surface laptops. Furthermore, a new light engine has been implemented, responsible for how light spreads from light sources. This improvement should result in significantly improved performance and fixes for various light-related glitches.

Calibrated Sculk Sensors

  • A new variant of Sculk Sensors which allows you to filter vibrations based on their frequency level
  • They are not found naturally and can only be crafted with 1 Sculk Sensor and 3 Amethyst Shards in the Crafting Table
  • One side of the Calibrated Sculk Sensor can receive a redstone signal as input
    • The strength of that redstone signal is the only vibration frequency the Sculk Sensor will listen to
  • They have a combined active and cooldown phase that lasts 20 game ticks
    • They output their redstone signal for the first 10 game ticks
  • They can detect vibrations up to 16 blocks away

Sculk Sensor Phases

  • Sculk Sensors and Calibrated Sculk Sensors now have three phases: Inactive, Active, and Cooldown
  • The default phase is Inactive
    • This phase lasts indefinitely until the block receives a vibration
    • During this phase, the block is able to listen to nearby vibrations until one has been scheduled
  • When a scheduled vibration is received, the block switches to the Active phase
    • This phase lasts 30 game ticks for Sculk Sensors, and 10 game ticks for Calibrated Sculk Sensors
    • During this phase, the block stops listening to nearby vibrations, wiggles its tendrils, and emits a Redstone signal and light
  • After the Active phase has finished, the block switches to a Cooldown phase
    • This phase lasts for 10 game ticks
    • During this phase, the block keeps wiggling its tendrils, but no longer emits a Redstone signal nor light
    • Finally, once this phase is finished, the block will switch back to the Inactive phase
  • Previously, these phases had different timings:
    • The Active phase lasted 40 game ticks for Sculk Sensors and 20 game ticks for Calibrated Sculk Sensors
    • There was no Cooldown phase
  • These phase timings were tweaked so that it is less common for activated contraptions to recursively activate the Sculk Sensor that powered them

Vibration Resonance

  • Blocks of Amethyst have a new behavior when placed adjacent to Sculk Sensors
    • If that Sculk Sensor receives a vibration, the Block of Amethyst will re-emit its frequency as a separate vibration at its location
  • This behaviour is called Vibration Resonance, and allows players to move vibration frequencies across long distances without having to recreate the vibration naturally

Vibration Frequencies

  • With the addition of Calibrated Sculk Sensors, vibration frequencies have been greatly simplified to prevent unwanted interference
  • The following are category descriptions for each frequency and the expected events that they correspond to:
    • Movement in any medium (land, liquid or air)
    • Landing on any surface (land or liquid)
    • Item interactions
    • Gliding with an Elytra or unique mob actions (Ravager roaring, Wolf shaking, etc.)
    • Equipping gear
    • Interacting with a mob
    • Mobs and players getting damaged
    • Consuming items (drinking and eating)
    • Blocks ‘deactivating’ (Door closing, Chest closing, Button unpressing, etc.)
    • Blocks ‘activating’ (Door opening, Chest opening, Button being pressed, etc.)
    • Blocks changing (Cauldron water level rising, adding food to a Campfire, etc.)
    • Blocks being destroyed
    • Blocks being placed
    • Mobs and players spawning
    • Mobs and players dying or an explosion

Playable Mob Sounds

  • When placing a Mob Head on a Note Block, that Note Block will now play one of the ambient sounds of that mob when played by a player or powered by Redstone
  • Mob Heads can be placed on top of Note Blocks without sneaking

Piglin Mob Head

  • Piglins will now drop their heads when killed by a charged Creeper
  • Placing the Piglin head on a Note Block will play one of the Piglin’s ambient sounds
  • The Piglin head will flap its ears when powered by Redstone, or when worn by a player while walking

      • “minecraft:facing_direction” is a six value string state [“down”, “up”, “north”, “south”, “east”, “west”] that describes what direction the player was facing when they placed the block.
      • Values for these states are set when the block is placed.
    • The PlacementPosition trait can enable the “minecraft:block_face” and/or “minecraft:vertical_half” states on a block.

Scripting

  • System Events
    • Further separation of events into distinct before* and after* handling, with some restrictions on the execution of state updates in a before event:
    • All before events moved from world.events into world.beforeEvents property. The “before” prefix has been removed. Functions that alter world state are prohibited in before event callbacks. Read-only methods and properties are allowed. Set methods are limited to the event object itself. Any use of restricted methods and properties will throw an exception.
    • For example, system.events.beforeWatchdogTerminate is now considered a “before” event. Functions that alter world state are prohibited in before event callbacks. Read-only methods and properties are allowed. Set methods are limited to the event object itself. Any use of restricted methods and properties will throw an exception
    • For example, system.events.scriptEventReceived is now considered an “after” event. After event callbacks are executed in a deferred manner. Using /scriptEvent something will queue script to execute at a later point
