When I enter /give @s name into my chat on MCBE, the autocomplete shows both name_tag and nametag as viable options for items. nametag and name_tag Why do they have separate IDs? They seem to stack.

  • @ExpertCoder14 but the weird thing is it was introduced in the 1.16.100 update and it has never been a part of the game and it is weird that only this item is affected (maybe because of the legacy id?). Maybe it is, but the weird thing is they stack. I was wondering if there was some technical difference for them. – Penguin Nov 20 at 6:14

Unresolved bug: ID changes left behind legacy IDs

The ID changes from this beta are a great step to parity, but now duplicate items exist.

All items that changed their ID have their old ID still as a valid value, eg record_mellohi alongside music_disc_mellohi.
This affects both renamed items and items which got split up (dyes, boats, spawn eggs).

Affected items:

  • Scute
  • Enchanted Apple
  • Dark Oak Sign
  • Boat
  • Lodestone Compass
  • Raw Cod
  • Tropical Fish
  • Cooked Cod
  • Dye
  • Melon

  • Fire Charge
  • Empty Map
  • Carrot on a Stick
