Minecraft Snapshot 20w11a

This is a snapshot of your newly enchanted boots, ready to take you on your journey through the beautiful Soulsand Valleys. This is a scary place, but these boots will make it easier.

Before we get into the snapshot, a little bit about Redstone

Redstone is one the most exciting things in Minecraft. Many of you are part of communities that build mind-blowing redstone contraptions and farms.

Many redstone behaviours are currently classified as "undefined". This is when the behavior of a block is not caused by intentional code, but is a side-effect or quirk of the game code.

We know that many players find undefined behavior to be very interesting and they enjoy creating unique contraptions to share their knowledge with the rest.

The quirks of undefined behavior can be quite unexpected, even when building simple contraptions. This can make it difficult for new players to redstone, and could turn them off from the unique and exciting aspects of Minecraft and the large redstone community.

We want all redstone components to be at a high quality level. We will make adjustments as necessary to ensure redstone continues to be of the highest quality.

We will communicate any changes in the snapshot changelogs. As always, we will be looking for your feedback and comments. Please post any feedback on redstone immediately.

New Features in 20w11a

- Soul Speed Enchantment Added

- Added Twisting Vine that grows upwards - You can now find nether gold ore in the nether. It is similar to gold ore but more Nethery

Soul Speed

Soul Speed is here to help you avoid the pain of drudging through Soul Sand Valleys.

This soul-sucking enchantment will make your Soul Sand and Soul Soil shine!
However, there is a downside: Enchantments slowly degrade your boots with each Soul block you walk on
- This can only be obtained by bartering against those pesky Piglins

- Hoes are the right tools to mine Hay, Targets and Dried Kelp Blocks, Shroomlights as well as Warped Wart Blocks and Nether Wart Blocks.

- Soul sand on top of a rail will not slow down minecarts
- TNT or Campfires will now light up when they are hit by any projectile.
- Now bell blocks will ring when hit with any projectile
