The first half of the Minecraft Caves and Cliffs update, 1.17, wasn't meant to change caves that much, but it actually did.

    Villages have also changed. I have a seed I really like, that I've used multiple times both solo and in realms. It has great features so when I start a new world I've been using the same seed. So when 1.17 came out I started a new world with that same seed. While most stuff is pretty similar other than caves as you've pointed out, my villages had changed. They were in the same exact places, but their layouts (which kind of buildings they had and where the buildings were) had changed. The border of the biomes had shifted too just a little bit so one of the villages even changed from a savannah village to a desert village instead.

    This maybe unrelated to the video, but I remember spawning the wither one time and cowardly changing into peaceful mode. For some reason, the health bar was still there and wither noises could be heard in the area I spawned it. I deleted that world and tried to forget that ever since… I was wondering if it’s still possible to do that. Or if it was just a glitch. I’d prefer not to find out myself.

    I noticed similar things too. I have an island seed that starts me on an island with no trees so the first thing I need is to swim to an island with a tree. Then I come back. The overworld was the same but there's more granite, andesite and diorite making it seem quite different a bit. Especially the mining runs.

    Some people are talking about being harder to find diamonds while others are saying it's a bug on bedrock or whatever. But i genuinely think diamonds should be harder to find, as well as other ores that can be smelt and crafted into armor. An experienced player can have the second (now third) most powerfull armor (iron) in the game in 5-10 minutes and maybe full diamond in less than an hour with some luck. Minecraft is a survival game that has lost alot of the survival purpose with the years, pictured this, when was the last time you died of hunger? making the progress slower until the diamond stage could make the game a lot more frigthening and entertaining. Also, copper could replace the ghost tier of armor / tools / weapons between stone and iron.

    Little life hack for y'all, if you have a survival world that you made in 1.16 (like I did) and you don't have the naturally generated things like amythest geodes and copper 'n all that just copy the world! and BAM you got all the new naturally generated things :D It worked for me, after I copied the world I found copper, amythest, dripstone caves and all the snazzy stuff!
