Minecraft 1.18.1 Pre-Release 1 has some small bug fixes but big changes to world fog which is no longer spherical.


  • Fixed an issue that would cause players on low-bandwidth connections to get timeout errors when connecting to a server.
  • World fog now starts further away from the player, to make distant terrain more visible.
  • Instead of applying fog as a spherical volume it is now applied as a cylindrical volume.


How to install:

  • To install the pre-release, open up the Minecraft Launcher and enable snapshots in the “Launch Options” tab.
  • Pre-releases can corrupt your world, please backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.
