1.18 experimental snapshot 7 is the seventh and final experimental snapshot for Java Edition 1.18, released on September 8, 2021,[1][2] which introduces changes to terrain generation and tweaks to elytra due to various server chunk loading issues.

Changes[]

Items[]

Elytra
  • No longer take durability damage when gliding, only when boosting with firework rockets.
  • Decreased the firework rocket boost on an elytra from 30 blocks per second to 26 blocks per second.
  • Now break when the item reaches 0 durability.

World generation[]

Caves
  • Noodle caves are no longer capped at y=130, allowing cave openings and cracks in mountain peaks.
General
  • Slightly smoothened the terrain by lowering the noise.
