1.18 experimental snapshot 2 [sic] is the second experimental snapshot for Java Edition 1.18, released on July 20, 2021,[1][2] which makes numerous changes to world generation and mob spawning functionality related to spawners.

Additions

General

Tags
  • Spawners now have a new "CustomSpawnRules" tag, which lets players override the spawn rules of the spawned mob.
    • In the tag, players can specify "BlockLightLimit", which indicates the highest block-light the spawners will spawn mobs at.

Changes

Mobs

General

World generation

Beaches
  • Beaches are generally wider.
    • In some places there is a chance where no beaches generate at all, to provide some variation.
Extreme Hills
  • Renamed mountains to extreme hills, and gravelly mountains to gravelly hills.
Mountains
  • Sheep now spawn in meadows.
  • Rabbits now spawn more frequently in meadows.
  • Donkeys now spawn less frequently in meadows.
  • Blue orchid no longer spawns in meadows.
  • Meadows sometimes spawn a lone oak or birch, often with a bee nest.
  • Hostile mobs now spawn in the new mountain biomes.
  • Infested stone now generate in the new mountain biomes.
Ore distribution
  • Emerald ores now generate in the new mountain biomes.
Ore veins
  • Made ore veins slightly larger and more frequent.
Biomes
Swamp
  • Swamps now generate properly.
Lush Caves
  • Are now slightly smaller and slightly less common.
General
  • Biome placement is a bit smoother and less noisy. Fewer microbiomes dotting the terrain. Biomes tend to be a bit larger and less fragmented.
  • Underground biomes interfere less with surface biomes. They can still leak out of cave entrances sometimes.
  • Increased the height of some of the peaks.
    • Now can rarely reach up to Y=260.
  • Slightly increased the chance of finding large areas with flat terrain.
  • Structures now mostly show up in the right biomes.
  • Toned down the megacave entrances a little bit, and made them less likely to go all the way down to deepslate level.
  • Made cheese caves a little bit smaller on average, and a bit less likely to intersect the surface.
  • Reduced the chance of sand and gravel being placed in such a way that they immediately fall down on generation.
    • Some are now replaced with sandstone or stone.

General

Clouds
  • Raised cloud level from 128 to 192.
