Minecraft Snapshot 21W03A – Patch Notes

Minecraft: Java Edition is ready to get some shiny squids with the release of Snapshot 21W03A. This is the first snapshot of the Caves and Cliffs update due out later this year.

The snapshot adds glistening squids and lichens to the game. The glowing squids were the top-voted crowd at the Minecraft Live event held in October last year. At this time, the Glowing Squid does not automatically appear in the snapshot. However, players will receive their eggs in the Creative Mode inventory.

These creatures drop bags of glowing ink when slain, and these bags can be used to glow signs as well as craft frames of glowing items. Glowing lichens, on the other hand, can be harvested using shears and spread along adjacent blocks using bone meal. Here are the full snapshot patch notes.

New features

  • Added Glow Lichen!
  • Added the glow squid!

Shiny lichen

  • A subdued light source that generates in the caves

  • Glowing squids are well lit and can be seen even from a distance!
  • When killed, glistening squids leave glistening inkbags
  • Luminescent ink bags can be used on signs to make text super visible, even at night! Works with colors!
