Minecraft’s 1.12 Update Adds a Fresh Coat of Paint Today

Minecraft

Colorful and helpful.

The 1.12 update for the Java edition of Minecraft is out now, developer Mojang announced today.

Called the “World of Color” update, it gives all colored blocks a makeover with the “infamous Jonni Palette 0.2” for wool, sheep, shulker boxes, and banners. Players can also make colored beds and concrete, while adding the decorative, glazed terracotta blocks. The studio created a trailer showing off the community’s best creations with the new colors below.


The update also makes it easier to guide players who may be lost on what to do next with a new advancement system, replacing achievements, and a recipe book that saves recipes and makes crafting less tedious. Check out the full changelog below, including a long-running joke of removing the Herobrine character.
