Minecraft 1.18 Snapshot 21w38a adds Simulation Distance as an option for Java Edition, along with a few other technical changes. Sprinting has been tweaked for better quality of life, copper and lapis ores generate differently, and strongholds have been restored after generation issues in 21w37a.

Minecraft 1.18 Snapshot 21w38a

Features:

  • Sprinting is no longer reduced to walking when gently brushing your sleeve against a wall.
  • Fixes for the distribution of ores.

Ore Distribution:

  • Copper ore generates up to y 95 (as originally designed).
  • Increased the amount of copper.
  • Lapis lazuli generates in blobs, like other ores (instead of spread out).

Sprinting:

  • Previously, any collision with a block would reduce sprinting to walking. Now, for very minor angles of collision with a block, players retain their sprint. For larger angles of collision, the old behavior is retained.
