Package: MineClone 2
can you upgrape mineclone 2 like minecraft version 1.17.1
Many > 1.12 features are great, but keeping 1.12 + optifine as target for MineClone2 is the best choice imo.
First, some > 1.12 features are controversial or would break some servers concept:
Also, more features = more work to maintain
Not all features from minecraft 1.12 are currently implemented properly, so it is difficult to fit a newer version.
Another point: many features from 1.16-1.17 aren't replicable with minetest engine
btw, some developers created mods with features > 1.12
Netherite is added in the mineclone5 branch of the MineCLone2 repo, but stay tunned as it should be published as a mod soon.
If you want, there is a heavy WIP modpack adding many things: https://github.com/TechDudie/mc (but you should rather download stable mods from cdb imo)
If you want, I made a mod adding a build limit to the game in the overworld and the end: https://content.minetest.net/packages/AFCM/mcl_build_limit/
