What is World Blending in Minecraft?

World Blending in Minecraft is a process Mojang uses to implement all its intended features in its Caves & Cliffs Part 2 update. But what is World Blending exactly?

World Blending effectively removes the bottom layer of Bedrock from a pre-Caves & Cliffs Part 2 map, adding an additional layer that contains the new content. This includes caves such as Deep Dark and Dark Slate Layers. 

Before Caves & Cliffs Part 2, updates manifested as unloaded chunks in Minecraft. This meant that to access the new content, you’d simply have to travel to an unloaded chunk of your world and find the added features.

World Blending will allow older versions of your world to have new content appear underneath it, increasing the world’s bottom by 64 blocks. World Blending is not the easiest task. There have been many bugs in Minecraft screenshots that are related to World Blending. Some of them with hilarious results.

Some snapshots show that a player’s bottom layer is gone from the game. It doesn’t spawn below the caves or Deep Dark. If they mined too far, this caused the world’s players to just fall out of it.

World Blending will be fully implemented and functional when the Caves & Cliffs Part 2 update releases in 2021.
