Hey guys! The map creators contest has come to a close, and that means it is time to share the winning map with you all! The creator of the winning design is Cajun Miner, and his map is called Ultima. Take a look at the map and download it below!

Like mentioned above, this map is called Ultima, and it features a load of castles, buildings and areas within a unique fantasy city!

You may have seen a couple of designs like this before – Cajun Miner has sent in this building for example, but he has never shown us the whole world. This entire map has been in creation for a very long time now!

I highly recommend checking out all of the different castles and buildings. Once you have, you should come back here and let us know what you think!

Cajun Miner has thought about so many small details you wouldn’t expect to see in most designs. He has included different, unique areas, including a graveyard!

What about my map?

Don’t worry, if you entered into this contest you will have your design shared in the very near future, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled!

I don’t know how to upload maps!

If you couldn’t enter this contest because you didn’t know how to upload maps, don’t worry. We are preparing some very easy to follow tutorials that will help you to upload and install your maps! These videos will be for both Android and iOS!

Hey guys! The animal statues contest has now come to an end! This means it is time to show off the three winning designs! These winners have all created designs that I personally think look really awesome! If you are interested, take a look at the winning design below!

For the first winning design of this contest, we have an epic turkey statue, created by FoxyAtTheDisco! This turkey has almost entirely been built out of different types of wool, and as you can see, it looks very realistic! Everything from the detail on the turkeys neck, to it’s beautiful feathered tail looks absolutely amazing!

Next up, we have a super detailed phoenix design by none other than BjankyMiner! If you’ve been around before, you’ll know that BjankyMiner always creates some really great designs, and this one looks awesome! A phoenix is a mythical bird often seen in different fantasy stories. If you’ve watched Harry Potter, you’ll know exactly what phoenix is!

Here is a look at the same design, but this time the background is at day time.

For the final design of this contest, we have a super detailed fox statue. This design was made by TheMasterFox, and in my opinion it looks absolutely awesome! This fox is by far one of the most detailed and realistic designs we have received for this contest!

Congratulations to the three winners! And as always, thank you so much for spending the time to send in your own designs! Check back tomorrow for another contest!

Last week was quite an interesting one for Minecraft Pocket Edition news, and in this post we will be sharing all of the bits of information that were shared last week about update 0.11.0. If you are looking for a quick recap on any news related to the next MCPE update, this is the place to be!

Developers Going to GDC

Last week, we announced that the developers will be going to the Game Developer’s Conference. The conference starts today, and it will go on till the end of Friday. Unfortunately this means we may not see much progress on 0.11.0 this week. We may, however hear a few things about Minecraft at GDC if we’re lucky.

Ultimate 0.11.0 update preview

Last weekend, we posted up a huge 2-part post listing all of the features currently confirmed for update 0.11.0. You may be surprised about the amount of features that will now be in the update. You can learn more about 0.11.0 by checking out each part below.

Part 1

Part 2

Redstone Blocks

Redstone blocks were confirmed last week! Whilst redstone will still not be working in update 0.11.0, we will be able to turn our collected redstone dust into redstone blocks. This is just one small step towards finally having redstone working in Pocket Edition!

Bats!

Bats have now been confirmed for update 0.11.0! Bats are non-aggressive mobs that only come out at night. In the day time, bats will sleep in dark areas, and can usually be found in caves.

Thanks for reading! I can’t wait for update 0.11.0! Are you as excited as me?

Hey guys! A minecrafter by the name of NerdFaktor has just built a really nice world design that features a bunch of fantasy designs. So far, the world is not complete, but in this post we will be taking a sneak peak into the design. Take a look at the creation below!

Here is my favorite image of the design! This image shows off a bunch of different designs you can expect to find in this world. One of the most notable things in this picture is of course the large floating blimp that is flying over the town. There is also a large water mill here, a boat, and a few small buildings.

A small roofed bridge has been built to allow players to cross the river and on to the dock area. The dock is used for parking the boat, and as you can guess, the boat would be used to travel to and from the watermill, and to travel to other areas in the vicinity.

This boat is a very simple design, but I think it looks quite nice! The boat itself has been built out of wood logs, and the sail has been made out of two different wool blocks.

The watermill has also been built out of wood logs and wool. The shape of this building is quite unique, and I personally think it looks awesome!

Here is a look at the inside of the watermill!

Hey guys! i have a pretty cool seed that I would like to sahre wtih you all today! This seed features a couple of different forests as well as a large desert biome. If you are looking for a nice place to build, this seed has it! The seed can be seen below.

Seed name: AutotomizeKlink

Seed type: Infinite world

When you first spawn into this seed, you will start in a savanna biome. There are a few trees around, but if you are looking for a good place to collect wood, you should do a bit of exploring. There are a few different forests in the surrounding area.

Here is the first forest you will find! This seed is a mega taiga, and it features a large amount of trees. Some of these trees are taller than the standard tree size, so you’ll be able to get even more wood from here. This forest is great if you’re just looking for wood to collect.

If you want to find some food whilst exploring, you may want to check out the mushroom forest instead. From here, you will be able to collect wood and mushrooms for food at the same time. The mushroom forest is also near spawn.

In between the forests, there is a large desert biome that feels like it goes on forever and ever! Here is an image of the desert biome. This would be a great spot to build a base!

There are even some caves in this seed as well.

Thanks Poopyman23 for sending in this seed to us! We really appreciate it!
