Minecraft 1.17 Snapshot 21w03a

Features:

  • Added glow lichen!
  • Added glow squid!

Glow Lichen:

  • A dim light source that generates in caves.
  • Use shears to pick it up.
  • Use bonemeal to spread it along block surfaces.

Glow Squid:

  • Glow squids have been added, but do not yet spawn naturally. You can find spawn eggs for them in the creative inventory.
  • Glow Squids are well-lit and can be seen from even far distances!
  • When killed, glow squids drop glow ink sacs.
  • Glow ink sacs can be used on signs to make the text super visible, even at night! Works with colors!
  • Craft a glow item frame by combining a glow ink sac with an item frame in a crafting table. Any item in a glow item frame is perfectly illuminated, even at night!
  • Use an Ink Sac on a sign to remove the glow effect.
  • Axolotls will attack any glow squids they see, so…be careful.
