Affects Version/s: 1.17, 1.17.1 Pre-release 2
Fix Version/s: None
When a villager falls from a high place, the death message logged is "Villager hit the ground too hard", maybe followed by "whilst trying to escape <player/mob>" if someone knocks him from a high place. This is the case even for climbable blocks. Named mob deaths which are now logged in 1.17.1 Pre-release 2 use "fell from a high place", "fell off a ladder" and so on.
How to reproduce:
- In the launcher, go to the settings and enable "Open output log when Minecraft: Java Edition starts".
- Launch any version (to be safe, the version should be fairly modern, as I don't know when villager deaths started getting logged).
- Enter a singleplayer world.
- Punch a villager off a platform 25 blocks high up in the air.
- Look at the log.
