      Hey @xisumavoid, you missed out on showcasing the new cherry blossom particles, just wanted to point that out to you if you plan on making a new snapshot video to try to catch up on it.

      Does copying patterns work the same, I notices most of them had mossy stone blocks underneath, except Silence?

    • Green Titan02
      Green Titan02 2 місяці тому +5

      Don't you think that the Silence trim droprate is a bit too harsh?
      you would need to raid 80 cities on average, which sounds just simply insurmountable.
      Why not add it to the warden's lootable? He is a challenge to kill after all and this can be a decent reward (of course the droprate would need to be like 10% or something)

    I like the new ruins. They're actually also somewhat historically accurate, when Pompeii was buried in volcanic ash, most of the buildings were almost entirely preserved, and there's still paint on many of the walls

      I think either if mojang really wanted to add those dyes, adding plants in the nether or maybe the end would be perfect

    • Daniel Thatcher
      Daniel Thatcher 2 місяці тому +93

      ​@Batdefinitely. I still don't get why you can't technically get purple dye from chorus flowers. But a suggestion for grey dye could be that it doesn't even have to be from the nether or end. If they ever implement an actual volcano biome and ever produce an ash block, you could just have something like an ashy flower instead. Obviously they wouldn't be able to grow the same as other flowers because it's an ash flower, but they could then be found in the overworld and the nether.

      ​@Daniel Thatcher maybe it is bc chorus fruit is a fruit, imagine you can get red dye from an apple... They need to add new biomes for the flowers that will give purple and gray dyes, its content for the future.

    One cool thing I hope they’d add is the ability to create our own suspicious sand/gravel by surrounding any item we want in a crafting table with sand/gravel. Makes for some fun setups for minigames. It’d have NBT data so I’m sure it’ll store things like item enchants and pottery designs. Unsure if it’s smart to have enchanted items inside the sand though…

    The "guard tower" structure looks a LOT like some of the forms you find in the ancient cities, just in color, which I find really fascinating.

    • Remor
      Remor 2 місяці тому +76

      Makes me think the two civilizations had some amount of lasting cultural exchange going on or may have been one and the same. Also, the presence of the Mourner shard in exclusively the cold ocean ruins has similarly large implications for the lore.

    X, I disagree with your interpretation of the colors in the trail ruins. The fact that they are buried actually means that (under the right conditions) it would be better for preserving the colors, so I'm glad they stuck with strange, colorful builds rather than going back to the "everything is cracked stone brick" aesthetic. Many of the ancient builds that we have unearthed in the middle east have been found with large colorful murals.

    • Marshall lee 63
      Marshall lee 63 2 місяці тому +245

      Yeah i feel like that’s the main reason people seem dislike the trail ruins since it’s quite a lot more colourful and different to the many grey black “stone” structures we usually get

    • fast boi
      fast boi 2 місяці тому +245

      Personally, my gripe with them is that they're full of sand/gravel, and it doesn't really make sense to me to have sand in the middle of grassy biomes localised entirely within these ruins. I'd be fine if the sand was replaced with suspicious dirt in non-sand biomes, though.

    • Duckified
      Duckified 2 місяці тому +125

      @Marshall lee 63 it's nice and refreshing, and it parallels to real life with societies like ancient china, aztec, etc. people are just blinded by the comfort of familiarity and nostalgia.

    • Duckified
      Duckified 2 місяці тому +125

      @fast boi the way i interpret it is the structures were built partly using sandstone and normal stone, but over time they fell victim to weathering and eventually broke down into particles. if the people of these societies used terracotta in their jungle structures, what's stopping them from using other foreign resources?

    • Noah Cameron
      Noah Cameron 2 місяці тому +123

      I think that if these structures were just another boring grey it would be bad because they’re underground, they need something to bring visual intrigue to them when you’ll almost never see one entirely unearthed.

  • Asteria42
    Asteria42 2 місяці тому +89

    15:20 ruins can definitely be colourful in real life - especially if they're buried! Exposure to the elements and oxygen destroys pigments very quickly 😊

  • Collin Regner
    Collin Regner 2 місяці тому +80

    I LOVE the underground rooms!!! Out of everything they’ve added it feels the most like Minecraft. I can imagine clearing out the sand and living inside while adding onto the ruins to make a really cool base. Super awesome.

  • Harm Berghuijs
    Harm Berghuijs 2 місяці тому +81

    The colours are actually not that weird. There are real world structures that were buried for centuries and they too have paint that was very well preserved. The sand and dirt is what protected them from the weather

    I’ve said this in another vid: The calibrated skulk sensor is such a randomly convenient addition to where you can make a key or specific item based pulse.
    I will soon attempt to make a minefield calibrated to eggs and snowballs.

  • Charmie Charneco
    Charmie Charneco 2 місяці тому +2103

    The structures are made of glazed terracotta and if glazed terracotta is anything like ancient ceramics then it makes total sense that they're still colourful, in my home city there are several streets lined with ceramics that are more than a thousand years old and that are still as blue as the day they were put there

      Yeah except the ancient ceramics in the Minecraft ruins have been so so old they got buried underground. Anything that old would lose any colour it had

    • Harm Berghuijs
      Harm Berghuijs 2 місяці тому +144

      @Grobusk No that’s not true. In Egypt there are a few temples that were completely hurried underground. The dirt and sand is what protected the paint from the weather. If you look up “temple Esna Egypt” you’ll see what I’m talking about.

  • Logan Entertainment
    Logan Entertainment 2 місяці тому +6

    I think the trail ruins is very interesting. Like the group rooms, halls, Decor, and the roads, remind of of Ancient Rome. They were pretty advanced, with having road networks made by laying gravel and then paving with rock slabs, somewhat similar to the cobblestone roads. Just about all the old structures look pretty well advanced, and well built for being in ruins.
    Considering the Ancient Builders are believed to be pretty advanced, it wouldn't be hard to imagine that they had stuff like what Ancient Rome had

  • IndigoRage
    IndigoRage 2 місяці тому +27

    Colorful blocks are good. Reminds me of Minoan ruins irl. Also makes it easier for players to rebuild them to what they might have looked like when they were inhabited. What I don’t like are the random ones by themselves

  • Levi Luke

    Being able to get a quantity of terracotta in a variety of colors without having to find a mesa biome is gonna be awesome.

  • Eupharos MC
    Eupharos MC 2 місяці тому +10

    It feels a bit like they're setting up for bundles to finally be implemented, now that archaeology involves so many loot tables with such a wide variety of "junk." I'm definitely loving the new structures, and the new trim and pitcher plant are pretty sweet, too! I'll also weigh in on the colour aspect of the trail ruins: if they're sealed away from light, air, and water then they would absolutely be as colourful as they were when they were built; ancient desert tombs are often amazingly vibrant when they're first opened, but fade over time once exposed.

  • ethanhenare1
    ethanhenare1 2 місяці тому +42

    i really love the colors tbh, i think it makes them feel really unique compared to other Minecraft ruins, and porcelins like that often keep their colour in buried structures irl. I do agree though that it would be cool to have more rooms that contain functional block though

  • Solomon Shedarowich
    Solomon Shedarowich 2 місяці тому +2

    The trail ruins are sooo interesting to me. First they look almost identical to the structures in the Ancient cities if you mix and match, but also it gives us context. The ruins have working work stations, which means it was buried not too long ago. It has intact glass which is a huge sign it was recent, so I just would like to let you know in case your channel mysteriously becomes a theory channel.

  • Fr_g

  • Georgee

  • desertrose0601
    desertrose0601 2 місяці тому +2

    I think the ruins are supposed to be reminiscent of Pompei or similar cities that were buried super fast. Archaeologists find those rooms fully bright painted with murals that were preserved really well because of how fast they were buried.

    I’m actually okay with glass panes being in the loot table. Adds to immersion, archeology sites are typically filled with glass and pottery shards

    • Remor
      Remor 2 місяці тому +80

      All the "junk" is also a nice selection of potential creative hooks for anyone wanting to rebuild or make lore around the sites and structures. That seems to be the primary idea behind the system, not to be functionally rewarding, but to give people ideas.

    • Ronald Reagan
      Ronald Reagan 2 місяці тому +6

    • Remor
      Remor 2 місяці тому +70

      @Ronald Reagan Well, that's why archeology is essentially an opt-in system. If you don't care for the creatively inspiring junk loot, then just don't bring a brush and don't try digging through the dusty or soggy, old ruins. This is very much a feature more catered towards a niche audience in the playerbase, not something everyone is forced to make use of. Sometimes the pretty blocks peeking through the ground can just be pretty blocks along your way to beating up the enderdragon or whatever other goals you set for yourself.

    They should place some suspicious gravel alongside the bone block structures, to incentivize you to fully excavate those skeletons as well.

  • Raymond Raptorclaw
    Raymond Raptorclaw 2 місяці тому +1

    Here’s a challenge: fully and carefully excavate a trail ruin and then rebuild it using a block palette of ONLY the items you find in the ruins! With maybe only one exception: a block can be substituted for one of its variants, like if you find a pink glass pane, then you can use pink glass blocks. In other words, same material, just different form. Like stairs, slabs, etc…

  • Raymond Raptorclaw
    Raymond Raptorclaw 2 місяці тому +1

    As a person who cares about renewability, I would like to see ways to… recreate the things you can find in these ruins. Like crafting a pattern or schematic from them somehow. Armor customization and pottery could be just as diverse as banners!

    I really like how they're trying to encourage exploration in the world. I think nowadays most people don't explore much since they can just farm everything, so having these kinds of things that are only possible to gather through exploration makes things more interesting and gives us things to do even if we've beaten the game.
    And thank you again Xisuma for explaining the snapshot!

  • Art Nodes
    Art Nodes 2 місяці тому

    I love how colorful the trail ruins were but I do agree they could have made the interiors a little bit more interesting. When you panned to the one structure and it has all these funtional items, I actually got a story and history out of that.

    I'd actually say that the colorfulness of the ruins isn't necessarily out of place. The ruins being buried would likely preserve the colors better as they're not exposed to the elements, and honestly the colorful ruins reminds me a lot of the frescoes in Minoan ruins!

  • Hyper Firefly
    Hyper Firefly 2 місяці тому

    WOW I’m so hyped for this!!! Thanks for putting this together Xisuma, I feel like you always answer the questions we really want to know.
    I DO think some of the armor trims should be a bit easier to find. A 1.250% chance just seems too low, especially for the amount of ancient cities there are in a world. For things like tridents with a low drop chance, it’s fine because mobs will keep spawning and you can get it it’ll just take a while!
    For the armor trims though, you’d have to what, explore close to 100 ancient cities to get one???
    UNLESS it’s a 1.250% per CHEST in an ancient city. Then that’s slightly more realistic.

      Very disappointed with Mojangs approach on the sniffer though - it’s only (currently) for decorative uses, but it’s yet to fulfill that. I’m a massive builder and i don’t see a reason to go through the entire sniffer process for something that won’t add to a build.

    As someone who plays mostly in creative mode these last updates have been amazing. I could see that new calibrated skulk sensor in so many magic themed builds. I also just love the idea of more armor trims as it makes it that much easier to create different factions and city-states.

    I honestly love that the loot table for the trail ruins is full of junk for a multitude of reasons. 1, it's very accurate to real archaeology. Often what you're finding is considered "junk" but it's value is in our ability to see into the past using it. Finding an ancient garbage dump is actually very informative! 2, considering the size of these ruins, they're going to have much more suspicious sand and gravel than the other ruins, so you're still very likely to find something "valuable" amongst the "junk"

    one thing i think should come with this smiting templates is like upgrades or modifiers that do more than visual looks as it seems odd that we only have one that is used for upgrades but all of the others are for looks. The new structure is cool and i wonder if it might get a few changes as i did like that one room that looked like a forge. Also did you see them tease that they might be working on a new boss mob.

    Personally I do like the random clay colours of the trail ruins, I think that they should have used different blocks.
    Also the fact that there is sand is weird in non sandy biomes, I think that it should have sand, gravel and coarse dirt depending on the biome with sand being used in samdy biomes such as deserts and beaches.

    The Trail Ruins are a new favourite structure for me, the bittersweet story of a happy civilization lost to time. I like the way the story is good with the structure as the loot table and sand signify that there was a thriving civilization and that their remnants have started breaking down into their simpler compounds respectively

Not just some suspicious sand.. Like the experience is cool but if there's nothing at the end of the trail.. Well.. That's gonna be a bit disappointing

      IceMetalPunk 2 місяці тому +5

      Yes! I'll start by saying it's certainly a huge step in the right direction, and I greatly appreciate the devs for implementing it 😊 But... It's still got issues. It solves the "filtering on output instead of input" issues that lead to interference with regular sculk sensors; but it's still based on redstone signal strength, so it's still got the pigeonhole problem.
      If we could filter for specific game events instead of categories, it would be nearly perfect; and if those game events were then separated between player-generated events and non-player events, that would make it the absolute perfect version it can be.

    • Remor
      Remor 2 місяці тому +1

      It certainly solves one issue, but another big one I've heard is that the activation timing of sculk is tough to work with. I wonder if that will be addressed as well, considering how powerful that would make this wireless redstone.

  • EvilCODrays

    I really like the trim that has almost an invert of primary and secondary. Really gives an option. Not to mention now u can sorta disguise ur armour with a colour and it'll actually be somewhat hard from a distance to tell what u have. Which is great for pranking. However now they've added it, I kinda want a few options, even if it's 2 others for patterns within that sort of premise. It's genuinely a nice looking concept and I'd like just 2 more designs just so u can be a little different from another person.

  • Derek Sturm
    Derek Sturm 2 місяці тому

    I really hope we see more customization and use for underused items in future snapshots. Armor Trims were a genius idea and if they could apply them to weapons and other things (custom paintings maybe, well, pots almost do that) then I think it would add a lot more personality to the game. I also randomly think it would be cool if the trims gave an effect, like imagine if Silence made all your vibrations 3 levels lower or something.

  • AzuRemilia

    Omg I adore the new Trail Ruins and the new addition to archeology make it exactly what I was hoping to see from the update!! It's so much more involved and feels like a nice bonus on top of the exploration you'd be doing. It's like a side quest without feeling like "oh go to this one place for reward"
    The design of the Trail Ruins is also great! Seeing mud bricks and glazed terracotta actually be used in structures makes them so unique and I love it
    For the Sniffer plants though... I still feel like they should glow. They look so bright it almost feels weird that they don't emit light. Or maybe they could provide an alternative form of spawnproofing, like preventing mobs within their radius from spawning? I feel like the process of hatching the sniffers and planting these flowers could be more involved and unique? Not sure how that'd be solved, but it feels weird that the same plants and animals from aeons ago can come back to life just fine like nothing ever happened

    Idea: Glazed terracotta should become dulled and worn down over time when it’s surrounded by other blocks, similar to how copper oxidises. The dug-up buildings would be mostly dull terracotta, but you can brush them off to reveal the color underneath.

    I think you should be able to put any item in the middle of the crafting table while making the decorated pot.

    I really wish they would add something like that.

  • Eric

    The way "suspicious blocks" and their loot table are implemented is a terrible idea for a specific reason: In worlds that are limited in size (e.g. 5000x5000, 10kx10k blocks) it's very likely you won't find all the biomes and/or structures necessary to find all the new loot. So players won't be able to find and craft e.g. all possible armor patterns.

    REDZE 2 місяці тому +351

    The new Silence Armour Trim is honestly incredible and I love it. I think trialing a thicker design on all of the armour trims might be a great idea too, as it will make the trims feel embroided into the armour more, instead of seemingly being "glued on". Silence is the extreme level of thickness, and deserves its own level considering it's rarity, although increasing the detail on each of the other trims would also be a cool idea.

    • Remor
      Remor 2 місяці тому +14

      The thing is, I don't think Silence is intentionally done like that. If the application of materials was inversed, the pattern would fall perfectly in line with the standard set by the other trims. Plus, this trim, while undeniably looking exceptionally cool right now, has the problem of making it tough to read for onlookers what material the armor is originally made from and what, if any, extra functional modifications it may or may not have (a category of smithing templates I am really hoping the devs end up making use of, just to make the meta less monotone).

      @Zion What's the L for? If Silence stays the way it is, I'd be fine with it, since it looks really cool and makes ancient cities a little more worthwhile. I just don't think it will stay the same for game design reasons.

    Something I find interesting is the Friend pottery shard. It clearly depicts Villagers, which means Villagers and the creators of these ancient ruins co-existed! But those creators are gone, and Villagers are (pretty clearly) not very creative in their own builds nowadays. Those Trail Ruins show that whoever these ancient creators were, they loved colorful builds!

  • lewis thorogood

    I think the big ruins should have mob spawners in them. I also think they should add a new glass block called something like "ornate stained glass" that you can get from the suspicious sand and gravel instead of the normal stained glass, or maybe glass shards like the pottery shards that you can turn into ornate stained glass with different coloured shards.

    The structure post-process stuff is what the trail ruins are using to add suspicious blocks (amoung other bits of randomisation I would assume). It's a way for blocks in the structure to be procedurally changed after it's generated.

    The trail structure while cool is definitely a missed new dungeon opportunity, where only once you reach the halls at the bottom there are spawned sand the templates have a MUCH higher spawn frequency with tougher armored mobs that could be like husks with just slight differences, maybe called Ancient Resident or something like that. Would have added some more lore and creepiness. Still exciting!
