Each Minecraft update brings new items and blocks. Over 80 new items were added to Minecrafters’ worlds in the 1.17 Caves and Cliffs Part 1 update.
Minecraft Caves and Cliffs was to be released as a single update. The update had many large changes and developers had to break it up to make sure all features were ready for release. The 1.18 update brought world generation changes, as well as new items and mobs.
Many beautiful blocks were added to Caves and Cliffs Part 1. This article will take a look at the top building blocks that were added to the 1.17 update.
5) Pointed dripstone
Pointed dripstone can be more dangerous than it is beautiful. Players can still create amazing designs with pointed dripstones like dragon’s teeth and hanging spikes.
There aren’t many blocks in Minecraft with unique shapes. Blocks like pointed dripstones are always a favorite of the community.
4) Copper blocks
The Minecraft 1.17 update introduced copper, a new Overworld mineral. Copper ingots can be turned into many different copper blocks by players.
This mineral, much like real copper, also oxidizes in Minecraft. Their color changes from orange-yellow to green as copper blocks begin to oxidize. To get stunning colors, players can halt oxidization in different states.
Although developers didn’t create lush caves, they did include moss in the 1.17 upgrade. Moss is currently only available in supply chests found within shipwrecks.
Moss blocks are a bright, vibrant green block that can be used to replicate grass. Moss blocks are a great option for players who dislike the texture of grass in deserts or savannas.
Amethyst block are one of the most beautiful blocks in Minecraft. These blocks are generated inside Amethyst geodes which is the only structure that was added to Caves and Cliffs Part 1 Update.
Amethyst is unique in Minecraft because it has a bright, purplish texture. When a player walks across these blocks, they make a quiet chiming sound. To farm amethyst shards, players can turn them into blocks.
Deepslate was a block that became very popular after Minecraft Live 2020. Although it has a darker texture than blackstone, deepslate is slightly lighter than blackstone. This is why players love mixing deepslate and blackstone.
Deepslate, like stone and blackstone can also be found in different forms and designs, such as cobbled, polished slabs, slabs and stairs. Version 1.17 shows deepslate as a material that generates close to the Overworld’s bedrock layer.
The Minecraft 1.17 update was a delight for builders, adding many new blocks. These resources will be available to players after the 1.18 update.
