Speaking of Minecraft Live, do you think we will ever see a return to the Minecon format? Obviously wouldn't have happened this year due to Coronavirus, but is it possible Minecon will ever return, or will it always be Minecraft Live?
Minecraft Festival is the replacement of Minecon as an in-person event, with Minecraft Live continuing along side it. 2020 was supposed to be the first year but the pandemic cancelled it. also 4500 posts

The first 1.17 snapshot has come out.
New features:
  • crystals and amethysts
  • geodes made of amethyst blocks, tuff blocks and calcite blocks
  • spyglass
  • tinted glass which blocks out light
  • bundles;
  • copper ore, ingots and blocks as well as the lightning rod
There is already a bedrock beta which added goats and powder snow.

Never released an episode anyway.

Never plan to right now, but maybe in the future.

Hey, nobody mentioned a rename!

I've given the snapshot a spin, and I currently have no opinion on it. That said, I think the Lava Cauldons sound like they might be useful at some point.

It seems Covid has caused Minecraft Earth to be discontinued 30th June, meaning 2 out of the 3 Minecraft spin-offs will be dead after that day (the other being Minecraft Story Mode which died with Telltale Games), and Dungeons being the only one available. All microtransactions will be removed, with ruby costs and times to do things vastly reduced (debunking the myth that microtransactions has no effect on a video game for those who choose not to pay for them). Save data wil alsol be deleted on cancellation, meaning there are no plans to bring the game back at a later date.

It's for the better since it was meant to be played outdoors, and with the current situation with covid, people shouldn't be out and about unless it's completely necessary.

Snapshot 21w06a came out yesterday and has brought in the new cave generation as well as officially increasing the height limit to 384 blocks, adding 64 to the sky and 64 to the underground, meaning that worlds will now span from -64 to 320 on the Y axis.

There has not been a new Minecraft Snapshot this week, but a new beta has released for the bedrock version which adds the updated mountains.

So it seems that a combination of technical problems, the dev team’s health and the pandemic has resulted in the Caves and Cliffs update being split into 2, with the height limit increase and world generation changes being delayed to Winter.
