Features and Bug Fixes

Vanilla Parity

Spectator Mode (Experimental)

  • Parrots sitting on a player’s shoulder now hop off when entering Spectator Mode
  • Animals and mobs with follow_owner behaviour no longer follow Spectators
  • Animals and mobs with find_mount behaviour no longer try to mount Spectators
  • Spectator Mode players won’t have cold feet and now the Frost Walker enchant does not affect water


  • Fixed an issue where Light Blocks would be removed when placing an Armor stand over them (MCPE-151856)


  • Fixed Hoglin and Zoglin hitbox size and hit range to match Java Edition (MCPE-65424)


  • Changed some structure’s names in the /locate command to have underscores, like in Java Edition (e.g. ancientcity -> ancient_city); the old names will still work but will not show up in the autocomplete

Features and Bug Fixes


  • Added a waterlog field to the /structure command and the load tab of Structure Blocks to allow players to properly waterlog a structure when it’s being placed under water

    • Control + Alt + C is the default for copying current coordinates
    • Control + Alt + X is the default for copying coordinates of selected block
    • Needs the “Enable Copy Coordinate UI” enabled in Creator settings
  • Pressing the Ctrl and Alt keys together will no longer make the Alt key get stuck down


  • Iron Bars are no longer missing from the Creative Mode inventory and are once again accessible through commands (MCPE-160253)
  • White Glazed Terracotta is no longer missing from the Creative Mode inventory and is once again accessible through commands

  • BlockDisplayNameComponent will no longer append ’tile.’ and ‘.name’ to given display names and in turn, will display their given raw strings if no appropriate localization can be found
