Minecraft 1.17 Snapshot 20w49a adds Dripstone caves and Sculk Sensors. The Sculk Sensor can detect vibrations in the world, it has frequencies too.

Minecraft 1.17 Snapshot 20w49a


  • Added dripstone caves biome.
  • Added sculk sensors.

Dripstone Caves Biome:

This biome doesn’t generate naturally yet since it is designed for the upcoming larger caves. However, if you want to see the biome in the current caves you can create a single-biome world with dripstone caves.

  • Contains plenty of pointed dripstone on the floors, ceilings, and small pools of water.
  • In some places, you’ll find larger stalagmites, stalactites, and columns built from dripstone blocks.

Sculk Sensors:

  • Introducing the bizarre, tendril-filled world of sculk – prepare for sculk sensors to creep you out with their unique ability to detect vibrations nearby.
  • A vibration is anything that causes physical motion; if you are careful, there are some motions that are undetectable to sensors by sneaking.
    • These sneak-friendly vibrations currently include walking, falling to the ground, or throwing/shooting projectiles.
  • Sculk sensors will not listen to vibrations that are directly created by other sculk sources.
  • When a vibration is detected, a signal is sent from the source location to the sensor at a speed of 1 game tick per block.
    • Other vibrations cannot be detected by a sensor when a signal is already traveling to it.
    • When the signal has arrived, the sensor will be activated for 40 game ticks (approximately 2 seconds).
    • While activated, the sensor cannot detect other vibrations.
  • Sculk sensors can detect vibrations in an 8 block radius around it.
  • The efficient tool to mine sculk sensors is the hoe.
  • They can be waterlogged.
