A thing that hasn’t changed in Minecraft’s Nether for more than 10 years. What exactly is it about?

Comparison of the current Infernal Realm and the Nether from years ago. What is practically the same?

The Nether is the first alternative land to appear in Minecraft over 12 years ago. Often referred to as Hell because of its color scheme, ubiquitous lava, and distinctive atmosphere, it was once quite a terror among players due to its considerable danger. After some time, fans got bored with the Nether, and update 1.16 made it newly interesting to players with a huge amount of added content.

Among other things, the aforementioned version added biomes, new structures, and piglins with whom you can trade gold items. Without a doubt, 1.16 was one of the best updates released in recent times. However, there is one thing that has not changed completely in the Nether. What exactly are we talking about?

What in the Nether has been the same for years?

The Nether appeared in Minecraft in alpha version 1.2.0, which was released in October 2010. So it has been in the game for more than a decade, and due to the fact that Mojang is constantly updating its production, after a while the land was simply outdated and stood apart from the rest. Version 1.16 was fully dedicated to the Nether and changed it dramatically. Players really liked the refreshed land and since then you can find new biomes and structures, among other things.

However, there is one key thing that has not changed since the release of Nether. It’s about its generator, which means that the shapes of the land that was generated in the Alpha version will resemble that of the latest releases. Attention to this was drawn by a user with the nickname CarotteAtomique, who decided to publish a screenshot comparing the world with the same seed created with the oldest and the latest version.

Even at a glance, it would be possible to distinguish between the screenshots and point out the one that is younger. Despite the many differences, similarities in the shape of visible islands and lava lakes can also be easily noticed.

Comparing older versions with current ones, in this case, is really interesting. The game has changed significantly, but in many places you can still see that it continues to be Minecraft.
