Command format[]

NBT tags
  • New {CommandStats:} tag for command blocks and signs.
    • Allows a command block or sign to increase a certain score in the scoreboard when it runs successfully.
      • The command will increase the score based on the number of items/blocks/entities/successes.
      • For example, a command block with this tag running a command which affects items (e.g. /give) will cause it to update the score based on the number of items given.
    • Usage: {CommandStats:{AffectedItemsName:"playername", AffectedItemsObjective:"objective", AffectedBlocksName:"playername", AffectedBlocksObjective:"objective", AffectedEntitiesName:"playername", AffectedEntitiesObjective:"objective", SuccessCountName:"playername", SuccessCountObjective:"objective"}}.


World generation[]

Debug mode world type
  • Tweaked world creation.
    • Other world options are not available.
    • Only spectator mode can be enabled.
  • Now includes all block states rather than all data values.
  • Arrangement of blocks is very different and a lot smaller, every block state only generates once.
Nether fortresses
  • They are now affected by the "generated structures" option.


  • Changed the particle effect when landing on a block, looks a lot more scattered.


Block models
  • Replaced block state names with the actual block state data, separated by commas.
Debug screen
  • Now shows variant states after the item (e.g. minecraft:cauldron[level=1]).
