    Dear Feature-Rich Community
    v1.17.0-rc.2, an unstable release, can now be downloaded through the account manager (section "Other Goodies").

    [Please use this to replace rc.1 if you already downloaded it, as it now turns out that rc.1 had a little bug introduced at the last minute...]

    We are inching ever closer to 1.17 stable ūüéČ
    This release should be crash free for most players and safe to use for creating new 1.17 worlds.  If upgrading your 1.16 worlds to 1.17, there is an issue with the water and reeds in this release rc.2 (that issue will be fixed and existing water anomalies healed in our next release), so you may want to hold off playing existing worlds until the next release.  We do recommend making backups of worlds that you value. We'd also like to use this moment to send out a heartfelt thank you to everyone that has tested the pre-releases - your testing, bug reporting and general feedback are immensely helpful to us. Thank you so much for the support!

    As usual for rc (release candidate) releases, we will here only list everything we have newly added since pre.1. Please also look at the pre.1 update for a list of the features added since 1.16. When the first stable 1.17 release comes out, we will then present you with a complete feature list.

    Game updates

    • Everything listed in the pre.1 blogpost
    • Feature: Added an oxygen meter. Can now only breathe for 20 seconds underwater, as opposed to infinite air
    • Feature: Added "arctic supplies" stashes to arctic climates, comes in 40 variants
    • Feature: New rain drip behavior for leaves and stick layers. Added Accumulating droplets. Keeps on dripping for a while after the rain stopped
    • Feature: Directional water physics. Doors, slabs, chiseled blocks, etc. now provide directional blocking of water flow for greater realism
    • Feature: Handbook improvements
      • The handbook now also shows how a block/item can be stored
      • Added guides in the handbook on Dye Making and Ground Storage
      • Added text about swapping glass panes to the lantern entry
      • Added description¬†of how to make ferrous (iron) anvils
      • Chairs are now grouped in the handbook
      • Improved handbook hotkey (<hk>) visuals. They now look like the hotkeys shown in the in-game block interaction help
    • Feature: Continued work on¬†shields
      • All shields now craftable. Most of them have a new recipe. Ornate shields can only be made by a tailor
      • Added metal hoops and bosses. Made by smithing. Shields are now crafted with hoops and bosses instead of metal plates
      • Shield now properly scale for ground storage. They don't fit as nicely if you try to place two shields next to each other now, but it looks better overall. Deemed a worthy trade-off
      • Added appropriate stats to all shields
      • Rebalanced shield durability. Blackguard shield no longer top durability, but cheaper to make than full metal shields
      • Adjusted transforms for shields, blades, and shovel
      • Fixed wrong naming on metal shields
    • Tweak: Reworked waypoint dialog. Icon and color are now a grid of clickable icons.
    • Tweak: All tools can now be placed on the ground
    • Tweak: Bears no longer spawn (runtime and during worldgen) in the first 4 in-game days and wolves don't spawn in the first 4 in-game hours. This should help with getting killed right at the start of a new (single player) world.¬† This change will not affect multi-player servers which have already been running for more than 4 in-game days.
    • Tweak: Most land creatures now flee from bears
    • Tweak: Players should no longer spawn underwater in new worlds. Search range for solid land broadened, if it still fails to find land, it will spawn a block of planks for the player to rest on instead, i.e. a mini-raft :D
    • Tweak: Dye System fine tune
      • Dyes are now made with water instead of diluted alum/cassiterite/chromite
      • Dye-making now requires a barrel for mordants and a barrel for dyes instead of combining both of them
      • Reduced and standardized the amount of alum/cassiterite/chromite needed to make a mordant
      • Added a mordanted cloth variant, which is now used for dyeing
      • Reduced the amount of dye liquid needed to dye cloth
      • Woad blue now has its own dye barrel since it doesn't require a mordant
      • Black dye now made by adding pigment to gray dye, similar to orange dye
      • Removed Brown dye until we add more pigment options for it. For now, cloth can be added to strong tannin to make brown cloth without needing a mordant
    • Tweak: Added tool mode icons for the scythe
    • Tweak: Leather can now be dyed pink
    • Tweak: Ales now give Grain nutrition
    • Tweak: Wrench can now also be used to rotate chiseled blocks
    • Tweak: Added more descriptions for the smithing GUI
    • Tweak: Replaced the 360¬į character autoturn in the character dialog into a light left-right swivel
    • Tweak: Hares now also eat peanut plants, and early stages of rice and amaranth
    • Tweak: Added more credits to the credits screen.
    • Tweak: Tannin can now be made out of acacia logs as well as oak.
    • Tweak: Adjusted the crafting cost of hide and pelt-based clothing. Costs less in general now, and crafting costs scale based on hide size instead of all having the same cost, e.g. 8 small hides are worth the same as 1 huge hide.
    • Tweak: Adjusted lamellar armor crafting to follow the same principle of scaling hide sizes as above ^. Wood lamellar can now be repaired, only requiring firewood.
    • Tweak: Oiled/curing hides now also scale according to hide size. For example, 1 piece of fat can make 4 small oiled hides, 2 medium hides, or 1 large hide. Huge hide now requires 2 fat.
    • Tweak: Can now do "/worldconfigcreate int lungCapacity [milliseconds]" to define for how long a player has air (default: 20000)
    • Tweak: Can now do "/worldconfigcreate int fertilityRecoverySpeed [speed]" to define farmland recovery speed (1.16 default: 0.33)
    • Tweak: Added missing mushroom ingredient names
    • Tweak: Disabled all custom cursors on MacOS, mouse controls may now be less glitchy on MacOS Catalina and above

    • Tweak: Held items can now also emit light (i.e. the candle)
    • Tweak: Adjusted a couple animations to work better in Immersive First Person mode
