Mojang studio introduced a test version of our favorite cube sandbox survival game for Android. Interesting features were integrated such as Sculk Blocks and other experimental ones, as well as several changes in game experience and larg-scale bug fix.
Experiments of the Developers
So, the developers from the studio released new game mode ‘Vanilla Experiments”. If you turn on the mode, then your there will be added such things in your world:
- A new special effect from which the display dims for a short period of time (It’s activated with the command: /effect @s darkness);
- Generation of new caves on old worlds;
- Goat’s horn;
- Sculk Blocks.
The programmers introduced new blocks from the Deep Darkness location. Apparently, we will not meet the Sculks in the 1.18, so it’s a lucky moment to try them at the present. Here’s the list of additions:
- Sculk blocks are decorative elements and useless anywhere else.
- Sculk Screamer is related to the Acoustic Sensor and sounds noisy and creepy. When you step on it or interact with it, the Screamer will apply an effect of darkness on you. To be honest, it still doesn’t work right.
- Sculk strand connects to every side of the unit.
- Sculk catalyst. If any creature dies around, piece of the surface under the model of the mob will become Sculk and Sculk strands.
This update will make happier that players who like listen to the soundtrack in the game. Learn more:

🤔 “I Lost My Worlds”
You did not, actually. To bring them back, you have to copy the “minecraftWorlds” folder from /games/com.mojang/ into the /Android/com.mojang.minecraftpe/files/games/com.mojang/ folder.
You can process that with any file manager. If your phone does not have integrated one, so simply download any one from the official app distributor.
