Hey guys! Today I have a pretty awesome design to share with you all! Somebody has managed to create a giant snowman in Minecraft Pocket Edition and turn it into a real house! It’s not quite winter time, but it is getting close, so I thought this design was worth sharing today. Check it out below.

Firstly, I thought I would show you the outside of this awesome snowman house design! As you can see in the picture below, this snowman certainly looks pretty cool. The snowman has an orange carrot nose, a big top hat, and two black buttons – it has everything a traditional snowman would have! In this picture it’s surprising to think a house has been fit into the inside of this design, but it has!

In this next picture, the inside of this awesome snowman house design can be seen! As you can tell by the screenshot below, there is surprisingly quite a lot of room inside this house. There is certainly enough space to put a bed and a decent amount of chests for storage.

Here’s a picture showing the creator of this design looking out of his snowman design from the inside. The creator has cut a hole in the top hat that can be used to climb in and out of the design. At the moment there isn’t a ladder here, but one could be added.

Hey guys! Today I thought I’d show you a peak into what the developers are doing with Minecraft Pocket Edition right now! So far, we haven’t heard much from Johan, so we’re not sure what he’s working on, but it’s likely he is getting skins working for update 0.10.0! If you want to learn more about the progress of skins, you can check out this post: http://minecraftpecheats.com/2014/08/09/skins-for-0-10-0-will-be-free-minecraft-pocket-edition/

As for Jeb, it sounds as if he has been very busy with the latest 1.8 update for Minecraft on the PC. Because of this, it’s unlikely Jeb has been working on many Pocket Edition features.

However Tommaso has been hard at work on Minecraft Pocket Edition, and recently he has been making some changes to the graphics within MCPE. Tommaso has been adjusting a few things to work on with the rendering, the mipmaps of Minecraft Pocket Edition, and the shadows used! Here is a picture showing off just how far the render distance could potentially be one day!

On top of this, Tommaso has been working on the mipmaps for MCPE – mipmaps basically change what terrain looks like the further away you are from it to help reduce lag and increase the apperance. In the picture below you can see mipmaps in action in a swamp biome. It’s hard to tell, but there is a lot less pixellation in the distance than usual.

What do you think of these new graphics changes? Are you bothered about the game looking nicer, or would you rather have new gameplay features instead?

Hey guys! As promised, I have now ended the build contest poll and have picked out the winning contest! We had a total of 1,297 votes at the time of writing.

In third place we had cities with 237 votes, and in second position we had underwater bases with 262 votes!

And in first place, we had mob/animal zoos with a huge amount of 402 votes! This makes it the biggest build contest theme by a long shot!

So, for this build contest, what you will need to do is build a really cool zoo that houses mobs and animals! If you want to stand a good chance at winning this event, think carefully about how you will display the animals. Because it’s a zoo, you could build enclosures for each of the animals or the mobs to make the zoo look better!

On top of building enclosures, you could think of making walkways, shops and entrances so customers can enter the zoo! The best designs will make the zoo feel like a real area, instead of just a collection of animal enclosures.

The full rules can be seen below.

YOU HAVE TIL TUESDAY 9th SEPTEMBER!

Please make sure your design is based on the zoo theme!

Please send your designs to submissions@minecraftpecheats.com!

Make sure to name your email ‘Zoo design contest

Please include your username and a bunch of screenshots of your design!

Good luck guys! Can’t wait to see your designs!
