I'm not sure the explorer update is the best name and here is what I feel about the 1.11 update.


Most excited for the shulker boxes, the lack of inventory has been an issue for a long time. My ender chest will stil be
me all the time but it now carry a few shulker boxes to expand my inventory.


Cartograpther and treasure maps seem pointless ot me, if you got a map where is the exploration and excitment Feels
like these wrere added to bulk out the update.


Woodland mansion and illagers look great and I'm going to try and find one but like jungle temple, ocean monuments
if you do it once you don't need to do it again it has limited appeal to me at least. Could make for an interesting farm
possible for emeralds.


Totem of Undying, if you are in a situation where I think I'm going to die, I tend to back away and regroup. The ideas
of plowing on and dying doesn't make sense to me even with the totem.


Keen to play with the observer block but smart people then me will put them to good use.


Llama, a ridable, transportable, inventory... We've had them since 1.7 they are called Donkeys and Mules. I'd like
more mobs like the polar bear. Different food sources, netrual mobs that can turns on you if you attack or if you get
too close. Deers, boars, snakes etc something to make the wild more interesting, to make exploration more interesting.


There is a lack of new blocks but from Jeb said on twitter a while ago I think 1.12 -1.15 will follow relitively quickly and
hope we will get certain stairs or slabs or dye-able blocks in the near future.


On the whole I don't think this update was worth the wait to minecon. But thats just me.

I think the update is ok, but will the end raturn portals spawn if we already explored the islands?
