Beta 1.16.210.56 is the sixth beta version for Bedrock Edition 1.16.210, released on January 20, 2021,[1] which added pointed dripstone and sculk sensor, and fixes bugs.[2]

Additions[]

Blocks[]

Pointed Dripstone
  • Does not generate anywhere currently, is only available from the creative inventory.
  • Can be placed on the floor or ceiling, creating stalagmites or stalactites respectively.
    • Can be combined to form longer stalactites and stalagmites.
  • Stalagmites break if not attached to something below, and hurt entities which fall on top of them.
    • Enemies that fall on the stalagmites deal three times more fall damage
  • Stalactites fall if unsupported, and hurt entities they fall on.
Sculk Sensor
  • A new redstone component.
  • Detects vibrations, and emits a redstone signal.
  • Will emit a different strength if connected to a comparator, and the signal strength is based on the vibration's frequency.
  • Currently can only be obtained via the creative inventory or commands such as /give.

Gameplay[]

Particles
  • New particle types: vibration_signal and sculk_sensor_redstone_particle

Changes[]

General[]

Loading tips
  • Added a new loading tip:
    • "Playing on iOS, Android, or FireOS? Get the free Minecraft Original Music Pack from the Marketplace for the full Minecraft experience."

Fixes[]

General
  • Fixed Pork Chop achievement and trophy being unlocked by raw porkchop (MCPE-95446)
  • Fixed a bug where foxes wouldn't knock off and eat sweet berries (MCPE-70790)
  • Clicking "Download Template" when missing required templates of an existing world now correctly downloads the required templates
  • Fixed bug that allowed players to place custom spawn eggs by default in Adventure mode
Commands
  • The /setblock command now supports setting the connected state for the soul_lantern block (MCPE-89609)
  • The /setblock command now supports setting the rotation state for the chain block (MCPE-105912)
  • 'SetBlock' and 'SetBlockAtPos' events now support custom block states
Blocks
  • Fix for certain Marketplace worlds having incorrect block data when played on Realms and multiplayer between mobile and PC
World Generation
  • Mcstructure files saved with entities no longer crash game when loaded into the world (MCPE-63387)
Technical
  • A boolean parameter called "ignore_game_mode" is added for the block event response "decrement_stack", set to false by default. Thus "decrement_stack" no longer decreases the item stack when playing in Creative by default.
