Update by [Mojang] Mega_Spud (Jay Wells):
Lily pads are no longer being generated in the world, in swamp biomes for example.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Start a new world using the "Cliffside Village" seed from the seed picker (-334399639)
- Teleport to /tp 340 71 -39 ~ 40
- Look for lily pads on the swamp water
- Compare this world generation with 1.9.0 or earlier
Lily pads are not being generated in 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 Betas.
Lily pads should still be generated in the world as usual.
I have noticed that there are no lily pads appearing anywhere in my world. I did find one by fishing but none are generating naturally in swamp biomes or any other biome
