1.20.4 and St Patrick's Day Update - 3/17/2024

Discussion in 'Empire Updates' started by chickeneer, Mar 17, 2024.

  1. Greetings all. This morning I have released Minecraft 1.20.4 to the EMC servers. As was the case previously, none of the experimental features are enabled.

    This is a minor update and hopefully nothing has broken. Please message devs immediately if you notice a problem! https://pmdev.emc.gs/

    Also! I am also announcing that MrSocks75 is returning to the dev team after a hiatus. We welcome him back and look forward to his contributions back to EMC! :)

    Also. The title promises a St Patrick's Day Update. Allow me to introduce your local neighborhood Leprechaun. You will need to venture out of town to meet him. Talk to him and he might give you a gift!

    The Leprechaun's respawn rate is cranked fairly high but there is a 3 minute cooldown for 'you'. They are friendly and cannot attack you. Just right-click on them. You will just have to wander around and find them. There are two unique items that you can get from them. The leprechauns will be wandering around for a couple weeks.
    Edit: There isn't really a "practical usage" to the items. Just cute.

    A side note about the 1.20.4 update.
    The most noteworthy change is that Decorated Pots can now store a stack worth of an item and can be destroyed with arrows. These pots have residence and antigrief protection. BUT the stored items can be hopper-d out. So make sure the block below it also has protection. There is lock protection as well.

    There were a couple of fixes rolled into this update. Hoping to have some follow up updates soon.

    Finally, remember that at the end of this week is planned a wastelands reset. 3/22/2024
