Minecrafters rejoice! The beta version of Minecraft Bedrock 1.17.10 has just been released, and with it comes a whole bunch of new features to explore. One of the biggest changes in this update is the revamped cave generation, which makes for some much more lush and interesting caves to explore. In addition, there are now mob spawn locations specific to each biome, so you can find spiders lurking in the dark jungle or zombie pigs roaming through the desert.
As the sun began to set, John made his way back to his house. He had been exploring the new cave biomes that had been added in the 1.17.10 beta version of Minecraft for the Bedrock Edition and he was excited to share what he had found with his friends.
When he got home, John quickly loaded up the game on his phone and logged into his world. He was surprised to see that there were already quite a few people online. He headed over to one of the public servers and joined in on a game.
After a few minutes of playing, John started to notice some strange things happening. The blocks around him weren’t behaving like they should be and when he tried to break them
Installing the Minecraft Bedrock 1.17.10 beta update
The beta update to the Bedrock game is now available! Players can access Caves and Cliffs by enabling an experimental feature. This will only work in a new or existing world so don’t worry about it if you’re already playing, but be careful with these features as they are still under development and may crash your gameplay experience
Enabling experimental features toggle
Players can follow these steps to activate the Caves and Cliffs experimental features while creating a new world:
Step 1: Under “Game” settings, they should scroll down to find the “Experiments” section.
Step 2: In experiments, users must toggle on “Caves and Cliffs”
Step 3: When the “Activate Experimental Gameplay” window pops up, they have to click on “Activate experiment” and create the world.
To enable the experimental features in an existing world, these are the necessary steps:
Step 1: While in the world selection screen, players need to select “Edit,” which will be next to the world where they want to test the new features.
Step 2: Under “Game” settings, they should navigate to the “Experiments” section.
Step 3: Under that, gamers need to turn on the “Caves and Cliffs” toggle and click on “Activate experiment” when the “Activate Experimental Gameplay” warning appears.
When activating the experimental features in an old world, a copy of that world is generated. So usually, Minecraft players do not need to make backups of their world.
The game still allows them to create copies manually as a safety measure if something were to go wrong.
