What was new in Experimental Snapshot 7 that made its way to Minecraft? Everything you need to know

What’s new in Minecraft in the last snapshot?

Experimental snapshots have been made regularly in Minecraft for some time, in which players can watch the next news coming to Minecraft in the final version 1.18. At the moment, many test updates have already been made, including new biomes and a map generator, which allows for the formation of much larger caves and hills.

The update is relatively small, but the change that affected Elytra will certainly have an impact on how the exploration of the world will look in the final version 1.18. The lack of falling stamina will certainly tempt some players to climb to the top on their own, jump off it and start gliding. Fans, on the other hand, will certainly be more cautious about using rockets.

Experimental snapshot 7


  • Elytra
    • No longer take durability damage when gliding, only when boosting with firework rockets.
    • Decreased the firework rocket boost on an elytra from 30 blocks per second to 26 blocks per second.
    • Now break when the item reaches 0 durability.

ALSO – One of the Minecraft players shared a clip where he flies with the elytra through an amazing track

World generation

  • Caves
    • Noodle caves are no longer capped at y=130, allowing cave openings and cracks in mountain peaks.

  • General
    • Slightly smoothened the terrain by lowering the noise.
