Minecraft: 'Snapshot 18W31A' - Whats new with the Aquatic Update

Minecraft: 'Snapshot 18W31A' - Aquatic Improvements and Changes

Hey hey, fellow Survivors! How are you all surviving the heat this summer? While most of the Java team for Minecraft is on Holiday, we still manage to receive a snapshot! 'Snapshot 18W31A' will bring us some optimized performance along with a nice list of bug fixes. Changes were made to the way squids spawn, you will now be able to only find them in rivers and oceans.  Fish will now only have a 5% chance of dropping bonemeal when they die. Bonemeal has more use now as it has a chance to grow coral in warm oceans!

We have left the full details for this snapshot below! Check it out:
