We’ve waited quite a while for 1.20, and now that it’s here we can finally rest. No more waiting for leaks from obscure Twitter posts or abstract YouTube news channels. We can just enjoy the newest content added to its fullest. Camels, bamboo wood, working bookshelves, and so much more! Unfortunately, we’re still on that content grind, and updates always have issues! Mojang has since released the first patch for the latest update, update 1.20.1. But what exactly has this latest update done? How will it affect you and your server? Let’s delve deeper.
Surprisingly, this update came out super quick compared to previous ‘.1’ iterations. It’s barely been a week and they’re already releasing it. This hotfix fixed some critical issues found in 1.20. Imagine, I was sitting there enjoying my chocolate milk and then I get a notification informing me that Minecraft has already been updated, just after the recent update? Strange, but we go on!
Regarding the changes, it’s mostly fixes. If you know about the ‘Realms’ button on the Minecraft title page, you probably know about how there is a little notification symbol that would pop up on the button if you had any notifications. There were apparently issues with that in 1.20, and so they’ve been fixed. This was bug fix MC-263244.
Next, joining servers crashed the game, seemingly randomly. That has been fixed as well. This was bug fix MC-263296.
Lastly, an incorrect status call on chunk generation was repaired. This mainly has to do with the backend of the game’s code and all that nerd stuff that I can’t begin to understand. But you can be sure I’ll be here to report on it! This was bug fix MC-263340.
Regarding future updates to 1.20, I expect there to be a fair amount of patches in the future. It seems that despite the prolonged wait the community had to endure, this update isn’t the most stable that we’ve seen, with game-breaking issues making it into the official release. Granted, it seems like Mojang is on top of fixing these as quickly as possible, releasing 1.20.1 not even a week later. But not a lot of updates prior had game-breaking bugs like this one did. Anyway, I expect bug fixes to make up a large portion of 1.20’s lifespan, to the point where it may even dip into the development of Minecraft 1.21. We can only hope I’m wrong!
With 1.20 Tales and Trails released and the Minecraft update 1.20.1 dropped immediately after fixing most of the critical issues, there’s no better time to join in on the fun!
