The new Minecraft update has just dropped. Despite it not being a major update, this one has quite a few important changes we need to mention. So, buckle up and get ready to learn everything about the Minecraft 1.20.3 update.
New Features in Minecraft 1.20.3
Let’s now go over every change and feature this 1.20 update brings, right from the major ones to the minor ones. But first, we need to talk about the significant buff received by decorated pots. If you have been feeling that decorated pots are just fancy items that elevate the look of your house builds, well, think twice as they can now hold items.
Decorated pots can now hold up to a stack of one item inside and can be broken by projectiles. They interact with hoppers, droppers, and minecart hoppers and comparators, which can output a redstone signal from the pot. Also, player interaction with the pot makes it wobble and produce a vibration frequency of 11. Decorated pots also stack to 64. Here are all the other new features:
- You can now change the speed at which a Nether portal will transport you with the gamerule command – /gamerule playersNetherPortalDefaultDelay & /gamerule playersNetherPortalCreativeDelay.
- It adds a new command that disables and enables you to break blocks with projectiles – /gamerule projectilesCanBreakBlocks.
- Grass has been renamed to short grass.
- Mob inside the spawner now appears properly.
- You can toggle on and off the splash text on the main menu in the settings.
- Teleporting with an ender pearl now makes a teleportation sound.
- Bat Minecraft mob has a new appearance, which we first pointed out with the release of the beta last month.
- The shield now moves much higher so it follows the direction the player is looking at.
- Brand new tick command that lets you freeze time, unfreeze time, slow down the time, or speed it up.
- Tipped arrows and spectral arrows now keep their effect when you pick them up.
- Clock and compass no longer work inside the crafting UIs.
Finally, you can play around with the Minecraft 1.21 features by enabling experiments when creating a new world.
