Minecraft 1.20 Pre-Release 6: Bug Fixes, Loot Tables, & More

Posted on by amber
One by one, new pre-releases arrive, bringing us ever closer to the day Trails & Tales goes live. But until that time, we explore Minecraft 1.20 Pre-Release 6, the bugs that it will fix, and how you too can play pre-release 6.

Details and Adjustments

Minecraft 1.20 Pre-Release 6 adds countless bug fixes alongside a few quality-of-life changes. No longer will commands be needed to put jack-o-lanterns on armor stands, iron golems can now spawn within transparent blocks, and end gateways will not appear more than once. No new features, but exciting nonetheless!
