This update also includes many new blocks and mobs, a revamp of the crafting system by moving some functionalities to different blocks, updates the taiga biome with foxes, and berries, and adds a new bamboo forest jungle variant along with pandas, bamboo and The Texture Update, allowing for a complete retexture of different items in the game.
