Minecraft Caves and Cliffs Part 2 Details

World generation is going to be one of the biggest aspects to how Minecraft 1.18 will differ from previous releases. Mountains and caves are going to now be gigantic due to the increase in the height of the sky and the bottom of the world. This also means that the distribution of ore will be very different.

The Ore Distribution for 1.18 has been finalized and is displayed in the image provided officially by the developers at Minecraft:

Obtaining diamond will be a lot different in this update, so be sure to check out our how to get Diamond in Minecraft 1.18 guide. Iron is another resource that you will need to adapt your strategy with, so check out our how to get iron for information on that.

Another big change is that seeds, which are how you can share worlds with other people, can now be shared across Bedrock and Java. So, next time you see an awesome looking seed, you will most likely be able to use it! You can find some great ones in our Minecraft 1.18 seeds post.

That’s everything we know about the release time for Minecraft 1.18 Caves and Cliffs Part 2. You can learn a whole lot more about the game by visiting the Minecraft section of our website.

    Was hoping it’d be the 30th of November in Australia. But it’s probably more poetic that it’s 4:00 in the morning on December 1st.
