Minecraft News

Good morning everyone, and welcome to the latest and greatest when it comes to Minecraft news! I’m your lovely host, Dave, and today we’ve got a smashing haul for all of you. In regards to Minecraft, snapshot 21w37a makes its presence known by adding in all of the biomes and features that we’ve been waiting for finished versions of for so long. Everything from Dripstone Caves, Lush Caves, Snowcapped peaks, Groves, Lofty peaks, and Meadows have all been implemented. We’re getting to the point where the Caves and Cliffs update is truly feeling like the Caves and Cliffs have prominence.

As for other changes, there are a few. Enchanting Tables now emit a low level of light, and shears on the tip of a Cave Vine, Twisting Vine, Weeping Vine, or Kelp now cause it to stop glowing. Neat. Large Ore Veins is also a new change with ore generation, and includes large, snake-like underground ore formations. This has been a fairly large snapshot that includes lots of features which have surely been in development for quite some time, so we should be very appreciative of Mojang and their hard work.

Apex Hosting Changelog

– Adjusted our FTP scripts for Rename/Copy/Move/Delete so that special characters and other odd file names do not cause problems.
– Implemented a new validation system for First and Last names in WHMCS. This should prevent any possible issues that would arise from a client having bad characters in their name.

Although they aren’t common, Valheim has received a small patch in the form of Patch 0.202.19. The latest patch reblances hp/stamina for the food that was just added by the Hearth and Home update, which was much needed.

A few monsters were also rebalanced by reducing health or making it easier to stun them. This update wasn’t necessarily needed, but quality of life fixes go a long way in longevity, so they’re much appreciated. In any case, Valheim is far away from its next full update.


Welp, that’s the week of news for you! In regards to Minecraft, they keep releasing snapshots in the hope that it will eventually add up to a full update. I still disagree with their decision to divide Caves and Cliffs into two separate updates, but I digress. The Apex Hosting crew is doing good as well, and they’re making tons of hilarious animations. Check them out if you get a chance! Lastly, Valheim is doing its best to become a full fledged game rather than an early access title. It’s on the proper path, which is why I enjoy checking out its changelog. That’s my haul finished, so I wish you the best week possible!
