    Another thing: Piglins get angry when you break deepslate gold ore near them

  • HoBoMiKe

    Waterlogged underground areas are such a pain in the bricks to navigate,much less mine. Now they’re adding a whole underwater table near rivers, at the base of the world, and in the mountains. It would be fine, except all the ways you used to be able to deal with that (quick torch or door for air) are gone now with waterlogging , and you can’t instantly refill your oxygen meter and go back in the water to get ores. They need to add some kind of way to get rid of massive amounts of water. There’s no way to breathe in water without potions, which are extremely difficult to obtain until lategame , and trying to mine anywhere near water is abysmal because of the slowdown and the fact that valuable items can get sucked into the floor of the cave with bubble columns.

    Whats funny is back before the aquatic update, i always thought that diamonds were found under water falls in caves. (Idk why) Now all my friends who laughed will be so confused as i pull out all of the diamonds (:

    it would be funny if earthqaukes would get added. personally i think it would be cooler if the cubic chunks would get implamented rather than just adding another 64 blocks to the under ground.

    Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. (Joel 2:12-13 [KJV]) == = == Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah 55:7 [KJV])

  • nectomancer

    little did thet know... THEY ACCIDENTALLY DELETED IRON ORE

  • SamC169

    how to do the thing at 10:15

  • coreynj

    The cracks in the surface look a little too unnatural. They need to be smaller and more blended into the environment. Also, a theory on the infested stone down there, they may create Infested Deepslate and make it spawn more frequently as you go deeper as a way of cranking up the difficulty. They may also make better ore spawn more frequently the deeper you go for a high risk/high reward kind of thing.

  • Rolan

    This whole update looks awful, not like minecraft at all

    • Salty Skwid

      Minecraft isn't even minecraft at all. Community is now trash, and the game is slowly degrading. Not having much hope for newer updates

  • Demogo

    New snapshot out :D

  • Elizabeth Del castillo

    The first thing I really thought was the caves there were too much water for it to be interesting early in game... yes there’s the door trick but you swim slower early game PLUS IF YOU PLAY BEDROCK the door trick DOES NOT WORK... so I really thank MC for making it rarer but personally... I think it may be to rare... maybe?

  • lɐǝᴚʇoN

    Im a little bit late to this video but does anyone know the difference between the new deepslate ores and the normal ores? Has that question even been answered yet?

  • Fish Paws

    At 7:51 you can clearly see that there is a secret message hidden in the deep slate. This message is in both of the ore generation graphs and I need to know what it says/means. Please Xisuma, help.

  • TheBlunderman bob

    i really wish minecraft had something similar to the Terraria glowlights where you could throw them to light up caves. Maybe something like a type of arrow and something else that could possibly work with water

  • EpicTrident

    I actually think what they did to the gold ore not being consistent with the one in the nether is good, because the nether gold ore only drops nuggets, which is consistent to the texture.

  • PNW9581

    i love the old texture of the ores better the the new

  • Tzer

    they increased the world height so... anyone wanna build on the nether roof higher up with me?

  • Kai

    Why do they have no release date when the snapshot has so many of the features and is available already? Why not just release the stuff that is done?

    • Kai

      @Smokey thanks

    • Smokey

      ok then just play the snapshot and name your installation 1.17 done

    I dont get the air expused thing. The whole point of the update was, so that mining is more exciting and harder. But now strip mining is encouraged again

      That deepslate look so good to use for building house.

  • Dave Theisen
    Dave Theisen

    The gold and diamond air exposure is probably just to balance the fact that with big caves a lot more blocks are exposed to air and you can see them all at once I bet it just keeps it so it takes about as long to get diamonds caving

    I’m sorry but the iron ore texture looks like crap, literally, it looks like a rock with large turds smothered over it. It’s disgusting, gold is good though

    4:02 "why not subscribe, make sure you're never going to miss out on them" actually subscribing doesn't help, if you watched like 5 of them, youtube is going to recommend them whenever you release them, regardless if the user is subscribed or not. the only reason they'd subscribe is if they are interested in your other content I say this based on experience, I wasn't subscribed a long time yet I caught every single one of the snapshots for about 1 year at this point, and subscribed only after a few months.

    With the particle effects, it would be cool if fire gave off orange ones or if you could dye the spore blossom to get different coloured particle effects.

  • Daniel Mahon

    I hope that they make the deep slate versions drop more ore, loot, items like they are more concentrated bonus points if they can get some form of fortune to work on gold iron and copper ores without making things cheesey.

    So is andesite being removed entirely or is it just a terrain generation change?

      It just won't generate under y=0. You can still find it anywhere above that level.

    The Redstone does not look like Redstone. I mean, Redstone is a very red, opaque, dusty stone, not a reddish-pink, reflective, crystalline gem. Does anyone have the same opinion?

    I still wish Mojang would add more ores. Copper is a good start but has practically no uses outside of building. Same goes for Amethyst. Would love to see Titanium Ore or Silver Ore with toolsets or something new.

    Why'd they go and add the air exposure thing? I don't mind it with lapis, since that seems to have extra generate without air, but with the other ores: WHY! Water caves are really annoying, and digging even more so! Why do they add such cave exploration features, only to make mining yet more efficient?

    • TheDream64

      Mining is still way less efficient, also perviously it was way too OP with dozens of ores all within view. This nerfs it a bit
