Minecraft Ver. 1.14.0 now live

Bee prepared

Minecraft has been updated to Ver. 1.14.0, which is the big Bee update! Check out full patch notes for this update below.

Bees!

Bees are cute, fuzzy, neutral mobs
Don’t hurt them, they don’t want to hurt you
Bees love pretty flowers and spend their lives gathering pollen from them
After gathering pollen, bees fly back to their nest
If a bee can’t find pollen, it will return home
If a bee doesn’t have a home nest, it will wander around until it finds one it can use
Bees don’t like the rain and they sleep at night. They will return to their nest in these cases

Bee Nests and Beehives

Bee Nests generate in Flower Forests, Plains, and Sunflower Plains biomes
When a bee visits a nest and completes its journey undisturbed, the level of honey increases
Using shears on a full hive or nest will harvest Honeycomb and using a glass bottle will give a Honey Bottle
Campfire smoke calms bees – Place one underneath the nest or hive to keep them in chill mode
Redstone friendly! Dispensers can shear honeycombs from hives and nests

Honey Block

Greatly reduces movement speed and jump height, but also reduces fall damage
You can “slide” down a wall of honey blocks to slow your fall (Parkour FTW!)
When a honey block is piston-moved, adjacent blocks also move
When a honey block is piston-moved, entities on top are moved along with it

Honeycomb Block

A decorative block that can be crafted with Honeycomb

Changes:

Updated to a fresh menu background full of bees
Leads can now be used on Polar Bears, Parrots, Ocelots, and Dolphins (MCPE-46866)
Dispensers can now fill bottles with water and honey
Tweaked the amount of XP dropped by animals to match Java Edition
Most animals will now drop 1-3 XP when killed, but Dolphins now drop 0 XP
Item tags can now be hidden in the inventory using the ‘/gamerule showtags’ command
