new function:

Increasing world height and depth

  • The overworld heights and depths of the new and existing worlds have been extended to y320 and y-64, opening up more space for exploration and construction.

World blending

  • Players can now update existing worlds to include new overworld height dimensions and world generation capabilities.See us World Upgrade FAQ For more information
  • The y0 bedrock below the preserved chunks will be replaced by Deepslate and a new cave will be created beneath it.
  • Biomes and terrain generated across new and existing chunk boundaries blend seamlessly to create natural-looking environmental transitions.

New terrain and mountain generation

  • The shape and elevation of the terrain is not always determined by biomes, and new biomes such as deserts are now being placed on hills.

New biomes, 3D biome generation, and biome distribution

  • Added 3D biomes – cave biomes can now be spawned beneath surface biomes

New cave generation

  • Added Noise Cave-The three main types of Noise Cave are the large, open cheese cave, the wide, tunneled spaghetti cave, and the narrow, winding noodle cave.
  • Added aquifers – these create area-level waters such as flooded caves and underground lakes

Ore distribution and large veins

  • Large additional veins – These long formations penetrate the cave system and contain larger deposits than the clusters normally found underground.
  • The distribution of ore has been adjusted to make up for the height of the new world

Mob spawning

  • Monsters will only spawn in total darkness.Players can use light sources to create dark areas of spawnproofs such as caves

change point:

Vanilla experiment

  • Added a new “Vanilla Experiments” experimental toggle that includes some blocks and items from The Wild Update coming in 2022
    • Goat horn
    • Skull
    • Skull vein
    • Skull catalyst
    • Skull Shreeker
    • Skull sensor
  • Be sure to back up your world before enabling experimental switching. Updated FAQ How to enable the experiment

“Old” world type

  • Removed “old” world type from world creation screen
  • Locked the old world to BaseGame Version 1.17.40
  • The existing Old World is still playable, but will not be updated with 1.18 features
  • For more information on changes in the Old World, see. FAQ article

Menu panorama

  • Added a new main menu panorama showing the beautiful cliffs of the Overworld

Android external storage

  • Due to the storage changes required by Google, players with external storage will be moved to a new location at startup.You can play even if the migration fails by closing the results window
  • External storage has been moved to a new location in preparation for Google’s new API requirements, so uninstalling Minecraft will now result in data loss unless you select the checkbox to keep the data. If you want to keep the world if you choose to reinstall Minecraft, we recommend checking this checkbox
  • For more information on changing storage, see. FAQ article

Known issues:

  • The New World generation in this release is currently incompatible with the “Create Custom Biome” experimental toggle. Expect the world in which custom biomes are generated to be potentially volatile, and that custom biomes currently exist only in the conserved regions of the world.
  • The world generation of Minecraft Overworld has changed completely with this release. This means that when playing 1.18, the old seed will no longer spawn the player in the same position. If the creator is version-locked to an older version of the game, its seed will generate a world prior to 1.18.
