Mojang this past week have been full of surprises with the amazing 20w14∞ April Fool’s Update that added over 2 billion worlds and so much more! It was really an amazing feat to be seen and should totally check it out! Now, we’re back to official Nether Updates with 20w14a adding another brand new mob and new changes! Let’s get down to the changelog and check it out!


New Features in 20w14a


  • Hoglins that somehow end up in the overworld become Zoglins fairly quickly – but who would ever bring a Hoglin to the Overworld?
  • Compasses can now be enchanted with Curse of Vanishing




  • Zoglins are zombified Hoglins – the result of bringing a Hoglin into the Overworld
  • Unlike Hoglins they can’t be bred or fed, and they don’t care about warped fungus
  • Beware – these beasts are raving mad and attack just about everything they see!


Changes in 20w14a


  • The main menu background is now in the Nether
  • The General statistics list is now alphabetically sorted
  • Strider balancing


Strider Balancing


  • Strider speed while mounted has been significantly increased to more closely resemble boat speeds
  • Warped Fungus on a Stick now has 100 max item damage, and only takes 1 damage per Strider consume
  • When Warped Fungus on a Stick is used with Striders, the boost is a great way to traverse the lava sea


Beware of the Zoglins!


Zoglins look awesome and terrifying at the same time! Interested to find out more to what these beasts will offer in the future and will be an interesting challenge to be added in some awesome plugins like Mob Arena! As always there’s an amazing array of  technical changes and bug fixes on the official post so be sure to check it out! Hope you all enjoy the new snapshot and be careful around those pesky Zoglins!


Until next time,
