Changes[]

Mobs[]

General
  • Changes to mob pathfinding.
    • Mobs now avoid cacti and fire.
    • Passive mobs following a player holding food will now go around water, if possible.
  • Entities panicking and on fire will preferentially run towards water within ±5 blocks horizontally and ±4 blocks vertically, even if they cannot actually reach it.
Shulkers
  • No longer attack in peaceful difficulty.
    • Shulker bullets despawn in peaceful, but not shulkers themselves.

Gameplay[]

Health
  • Health regenerates 1♥ every half-second instead of 1♥ every 4 seconds, when saturation is not empty.
    • Regenerating health increases exhaustion by 4 points rather than 3.
