Dev news : 1.17 blocks !

As the first snapshots started to roll out, I wanted to give some of those new 1.17 blocks a go. I’ll share focus between Realaccurate and the new 1.17 blocks for Vanillaccurate, with a slight higher priority for Realaccurate for now. ToonAccurate gets lower priority for the time being.

Here are renders and in-game screenshots of the amethyst block and the various weathered stages of the copper block. The shaders I used here alongside the Substance renders are Continuum 2.1 alpha build 12, Spectrum, and Kappa v3.0 E12:

As you can see, 1.17 sounds pretty interesting with lots of new blocks to discover and for me, lots of new stuff to design.

Stay tuned for more 1.17 stuff in the coming weeks !
