Minecraft 1.16 Snapshot 20w09a introduces the new target block, the zombified piglins, and crying obsidian to Minecraft. Crying obsidian was actually a feature in Minecraft about 10 years ago. Zombie pigmen have been removed and replaced by Zombified Piglins!

Minecraft 1.16 Snapshot 20w09a

Features:

  • Added the Target block!
  • Added the new Crying Obsidian block. It’s sad and it cries purple energy!
  • Bartering loot has been restructured to be more appealing to survival players.
  • Entities now get pushed by flowing lava.
  • Huge Fungi will now grow only on its matching type of Nylium.
  • Can now place Warped/Crimson roots and fungi into pots.
  • Nether wart blocks can be cleared quickly using a hoe.
  • Warped wart blocks can be cleared quickly using a hoe.
  • Weeping vines are now climbable.
  • Biome fog color smoothly blends between biomes. Smooth!
  • Changed ambient block lighting in the Nether to be on parity with other editions.

Target:

  • Because let’s face it, your aim could use some practice.
  • The closer you hit to the center, the larger the Redstone signal!
  • Test your skills with a variety of projectiles, including eggs, snowballs, tridents, and more!
  • You will need one hay block and four Redstone for this recipe.

Zombified Piglin:

  • Zombie Pigmen are now known as Zombiefied Piglins, and they now have ears. Well, at least one ear…

Block Renames:

  • Some blocks have been renamed. Turns out singular Fungus in the Nether attempted to falsely present itself as many Fungi – very sneaky!
  • Crimson Fungi is now called Crimson Fungus.
  • Warped Fungi is now called Warped Fungus.
