So in the rekindled love of Minecraft, the searches about YouTube and Blogs to see what I have been missing out on has been fun. I find I regularly jump on to a local server to go and investigate something I haven't seen before or an item I haven't used. But for the first time in a while, I'm actually excited about an update that is coming out. 1.16 - The Nether Update.
I jumped on to have a quick look this evening. Snapshot 20w06a was available and I dived in. The random seed I got was actually an excellent map (to note for later) and I grabbed some Obsidian. A few seconds later I was greeted with the view above.
I haven't done much with it yet, but from what was a near lifeless, boring world that you only ever briefly skipped though, on your quest for supplies to reach The End. Now suddenly feels like somewhere I'll be spending a lot of time gathering materials and seeing what builds and designs work in there. Shroomlights... I mean, come on, that is genius. That is all. Enjoy.
