21w16a is the eighteenth snapshot for Java Edition 1.17, released on April 21, 2021,[1] which adds dripstone growth and the ability to grow azalea trees.

Additions[edit]

Gameplay[edit]

Pointed dripstone growth
  • If a stalactite is hanging from a dripstone block with a water source above, it will slowly grow both the stalactite from above and a stalagmite from below.
    • Growth speed is random but very slow; a single growth step can take several in-game days.
  • A stalactite will only grow up to 7 blocks long.
  • A stalactite will only cause stalagmite growth if the floor or stalagmite below is within 10 blocks.
  • If the stalactite tip is inside water it won’t drip, and therefore will not trigger any growth.
  • If the stalagmite tip is inside water or there is a fluid between the two dripstone blocks, it will not receive the water drops, and therefore will not be grown by a dripping stalactite.
    • A stalagmite or stalactite will never grow into a fluid.

General[edit]

  • Added Russian (Pre-revolutionary) language.
  • Added Chinese Traditional (Hong Kong) language.
