1.16.4 Pre-release 1 (known as 1.16.4-pre1 in the launcher) is the first pre-release for Java Edition 1.16.4, released on October 15, 2020,[1] which adds the social interactions screen and fixes two bugs.

Additions[]

General[]

  • Added Social interactions screen.
    • Gives players the ability to disable chatting with certain players, thus hiding any messages receiving from them.
    • Opens with a configurable key binding, by default P.
    • Whether a player is hidden resets when re-joining a server.

Changes[]

Items[]

Netherite leggings
  • Changed the texture of the worn netherite leggings model.

General[]

Crashes
  • More information is now added to the crash log in cases where poor performance causes the server to crash.
Options
Protocol versions
  • New network protocol scheme, with a high bit (bit 30) set for snapshots. The protocol version will increase by 1 for each snapshot, but full releases may keep the same protocol version as the previous full release in cases where the network protocols are compatible.
Servers
  • When the server and client version are incompatible, a message reading "Incompatible version!" will be displayed, instead of "Client out of date!" or "Server out of date!".

Fixes[]

2 issues fixed
From 1.16
  • MC-192434 – The top front texture of worn netherite leggings is inconsistent with the rest of the texture.
From 1.16.2
  • MC-199487 – World generation deadlock causes crash.
