minecraft update 1.17.30

Minecraft has been updated to version 1.17.30. It comes with the “Respawn Blocks Explode” game rule, Caves & Cliffs: Part II, tons of fixes, and more.

Below are the full patch notes:

New Features:

Respawn Blocks Explode Game Rule

  • Added the “Respawn Blocks Explode” game rule, which can be used to prevent Respawn Anchors and Beds from exploding (MCPE-76687)

Structure Block: Corner Mode

  • Corner Mode is used with the Detect button in Save Mode to define the area to save. It will only detect Corner Blocks with the same name as the structure being saved

Experimental Features:

More experimental features from Caves & Cliffs: Part II are available in this update and can be enabled on the world creation screen!

Please keep in mind that these features are work in progress, still under in development, and subject to change. If you activate them, your world might crash, break, or not work with future updates. Experimental features cannot be turned off after world creation.

For more information, please see the article about enabling experimental features at aka.ms/MCExperimentalFeatures.

Monster Spawning

  • Monsters now only spawn in complete darkness
  • This change is being made to balance the player’s ability to light up the new larger caves and make them safe from monster spawning

  • Please send us your feedback on this change at aka.ms/CavesCliffsFeedback!
