Known Issues

  • Older worlds that have not yet been opened in 1.18+ may experience issues with unexplored chunks below y=0 not generating correctly. We suggest that you make backup copies of your worlds, and avoid opening pre-1.18 worlds in this Beta/Preview build.

Experimental Features

Copper Horn

  • Added Copper Horn item, which is crafted using three Copper Ingots in a “v shape” with a Goat Horn in the middle
  • Can play three different sounds, by looking up, crouching, and everything else
  • Added special sounds for Copper Horns crafted from Goat Horns found from screaming Goats

Goat Horn

  • Added additional Goat Horn sounds, which are random per goat
  • Added special sounds for Screaming Goat
  • Is always dropped when a Goat with at least one horn rams these blocks: Stone, Packed ice, Iron Ore, Copper Ore, Emerald Ore, or any kind of wood log from the Overworld
  • Can be crafted into Copper Horn using 3 Copper Ingots in a “v shape” with a Goat Horn in the middle
  • Goats have a small chance of spawning with only one horn (Baby Goats will always end up with two horns)
