Combat Test 8 is a development version for Combat Test 8b. Although it is a development version for a future release, this combat experiment is a fork of 1.16.2.

This version was privately released for testing and thus was not available to the general public.

Changes[]

Items[]

Arrows
  • Instantaneous effects on tipped arrows are now scaled by 18, just like the duration of other effects.
Bows
  • Returned bow fatigue for holding the bow pulled, but it doesn't start until 3 seconds. Bow fatigue will also cancel out "critical arrows".
Potions
  • Strength I/II now adds +20%/+40% (was +3/+6 damage).
  • Instant Health potions now heal 3×2level (was 2×2level).
  • Potions can now be drunk faster (20 ticks, was 32 ticks).

Gameplay[]

Eating
  • Returned eating interruption for getting hit (by players or mobs), also applies to drinking.
  • Liquid food (stews, honey, milk) can now be consumed faster (20 ticks, was 32 or 40 ticks).
Enchantments
  • Weapon enchantments are now included in the base damage when calculating crits and potion effects.
Build Mechanics
  • It is now possible to build in front of your feet when looking down over a ledge. (Parity)

Fixes[]

From the previous development versions
  • Fixed shield protection arcs.
  • Improved server-side attack range calculations.

Trivia[]

  • Combat Test 8 has the same protocol version as Combat Test 8b and Combat Test 8c, which means these versions are cross-compatible with each other.
    • This is a rare time where 3 development versions have had the same protocol version excluding joke versions.
