Another week of brand new additions and changes coming in the Nether update. With a brand new enchantment, nether gold, vines and so much more! Let’s get right into it and check out everything in this new snapshot!


New Features in 20w11a


  • Added Soul Speed enchantment
  • Added Twisting Vines that grow upwards
  • Nether gold ore can now be found in the nether – it is just like gold ore, but more Nether-y


Soul Speed


Never suffer again drudging through Soul Sand Valleys – Soul Speed has you covered!

  • Shine your boots of choice with this soul-sucking enchantment to speed around on Soul Sand and Soul Soil!
  • There’s a downside, however: enchantments will slowly degrade your boots each Soul block you walk on
  • Can only be obtained by bartering with those pesky Piglins


Changes in 20w11a


  • Bone meal can now be used to grow kelp, weeping vines and twisting vines
  • Hoes are now the appropriate tools for mining Hay, Targets, Dried Kelp Blocks, Shroomlights, Nether Wart Blocks and Warped Wart Blocks
  • Doors, rails, buttons, pressure plates, redstone and more can now be placed on soulsand and full-block of snow layers
  • Soul sand with a rail on top will no longer slow-down minecarts
  • TNT and Campfires will now ignite when hit by any burning projectile
  • Bell blocks will now ring when hit by any projectile


Redstone changes are coming!


Mojang has also shared that there are going to be some major changes to how Redstone works to fix many quirks and behaviors that have been considered “undefined” happy or not so happy accidents. With these changes they’d like to bring Redstone up to a much higher quality with more ease of use to allow more people to enjoy it with a better understanding! We can’t wait to see what amazing changes they bring to one of the most unique mechanics in the game. You can check out their full post and changelog here.


Until next time,
