Axolotls on Minecraft?

1.17 Update Comes to ComfyMC!

Everyone’s on the hunt for the blue axolotl. Does it spawn in the wild? What is the chance of running into this friend of ours? Does it really exist? What the heck is an axolotl anyways?

Axolotls, also known as “Mexican Walking Fish”, are a breed of salamander that is native to freshwater lakes in the Valley of Mexico. They are considered critically endangered in the wild, which contributed to Mojang’s decision to add them into the game.

The current variants of axolotls include Leucistic (pink), Wild (brown), Gold, Cyan, and the infamous Blue that has everyone pulling their hair out. The probability of a blue axolotl spawning is 1/1200. In one of Mojang’s “Dev Diaries”, they explained this figure is based on there only being approximately 1200 axolotls left in the wild. As of 2021, some sources have lessened this number to fewer than 1000. 

As of right now, axolotls spawn below sea level (y63) and in total darkness. They can be bred with buckets of tropical fish, and you can feed these buckets to baby axolotls to get them to grow up faster. As of 1.17.1, blue axolotls no longer spawn naturally and must be obtained through breeding. 

Players on SV are already raving about managing to breed some of these little fellas, but players on X don’t seem to be having the same amount of luck. Do you have a blue axolotl yet?


Tech admins @ work

1.17 bugs & issues

Missing featherboard? Phantom usernames? No resource area? What’s going on?

ComfyMC’s tech admins, Addy and Tsubomi, work hard to ensure Minecraft updates are optimized before bringing it to the server. This includes testing the update, waiting for plugins to be optimized, and working hand-in-hand with plugin developers to resolve bugs before players are ever impacted.

However, it’s not possible for two people to find every single bug, and that’s where our amazing player base comes in. We thank you all for your patience and reporting the bugs you’ve encountered on 1.17. Many have already been fixed, and we’ll keep working hard to address any more that happen. 

If you encounter a bug, please report it to staff immediately OR submit a Bugs & Issues ticket on our Discord.

I don’t play on as much as I would like because that would mean I’d have to miss out on my prime time anime shows! But once I’m all caught up, I’d load up Minecraft and hop online to this server.
