Your cats will be off their butts and scaring phantoms once more thanks to the Minecraft 1.18 snapshot

Phantoms started being afraid of cats as of a 1.14 update – 18w44a if you want to be fancy about it – and the latest snapshot means that your feline friends can continue to keep them at bay.

The pre-release snapshots for Minecraft 1.18 are growing teenier and teenier as the release date approaches. But, despite this, the weekly snapshots continue to arrive with valuable updates and modifications – and, while this week’s batch doesn’t contain anything substantial, there are a few bits and pieces worth noticing, the most important of which is all about our (virtual) feline pals.
One of the issue fixes for 11.18’s pre-release 8 patch is “cats no longer scar[ing] phantoms away,” according to Mojang. Phantoms are hostile groups that roam the night skies, and they’re terrified of cats, as fans will know. Because cats hiss and spit at phantoms who assault player characters, the eerie spirits will want to stay as far away from them as possible – around 16 blocks in actuality.

It seems there was a bug cropping up following a previous 1.18 snapshot that was making cats very lazy at scaring away phantoms indeed, as illustrated by this great picture. Yep, those are some complacent little critters letting that phantom just swoop overhead uncontested. Tsk tsk.

That’s all fixed now, though. Additionally, there are various other bug fixes that solve things like crashes occurring after respawning (that’s a big one) among other issues. You can check out the full rundown in Mojang’s blog post with the update notes at that link.

The Minecraft 1.18 release date is November 30. Mojang recently announced the date and news that it’ll bring new world generation and enhanced cave systems, as well as candles – though some features are still “on hold” for now, which you can read about at that link.
