Hey guys! I have a pretty awesome map to share with you all today! This map was created and ported by ThePEBuildingBros – they’ve done some pretty cool ports in the past, and I think this one is just as good! This map has two big forests and a big stream of water going through the middle of them both. Below I’ve taken some pictures of the map, and at the end of the post you can download it for yourself to check out!

This here is the place you’ll spawn at! It’s a very nice camp site that is right next to one of the big forests. I think this area looks really, really nice and it could be a great place to start a small base if you plan to play this map on survival mode.

The picture below shows an overhead view of one of the massive forests in the game! This forest is massive, and it’s absolutely jam packed with giant forest trees! There are a few different types of trees in this forest which I think is great because it adds a bit of variation to the forest and it makes it feel more life like.

Like mentioned before, there are two big forests, and there is a big stream of water that separates the two forests apart from each other. In the picture below, the stream of water can be seen. I think it looks stunning!

Hey guys! Today is another day for Pixel Art Tuesday! This series has been great fun so far, and your designs just keep coming in! This week, we have a few cool new pixel designs to share with you all. I apologize if I didn’t manage to share your own design, there are just so many to look through! However, always feel free to keep sending in your pixel art designs because Pixel Art Tuesday happens every week! Let’s take a look at this week’s Pixel Art.

First up, we have an awesome pixel painting by skeleygirl2003! She has painted a pixel picture of her fighting a skeleton! I really like this awesome painting, and I think it’d be awesome to see more like this in the future!

Next, we have a really, really epic pixel design from William! He has created a diamond block that is being mined into by a pickaxe! I really like the detail that has gone into this – I think it’s great!

William also made this awesome sword! It’d be amazing if we could have access to this sword in Minecraft Pocket Edition because it looks really good.

203Stars has done a great job at recreating a giant oak log plank! A lot of detailing has done into making sure the plank looks just like the real version, except of course this version is a lot bigger! Imagine a world made out of blocks like this, it would be crazy!

Well that’s it for this week, what design was your favorite? Discuss it in the comments section below!

Hey guys! As I mentioned before, yesterday the developers that are currently working on Minecraft Pocket Edition held a Q&A session where they answered a bunch of questions about the future of MCPE, and of course the biggest upcoming update, version 0.9.0! Unfortunately a release date for update 0.9.0 was not revealed, but there was a bit of information that was pretty interesting to hear!

Most of the information shared pretty confirms or denies previous stuff we already heard about, but there were a few new bits of information, for example, enchantment tables are planned for update 1.0.0 or 1.1.0! Around this time redstone will also be fully functional – it’s a bit of a long wait, but it’s obviously taking a while to get redstone perfected.

The inventory in update 0.9.0 will also be redesigned, so it’ll be interesting to see what changes are made when the update is released, and hunger will be in Minecraft Pocket Edition, but it probably won’t make it into update 0.9.0. Strongholds will be added to 0.9.0, as well as many other cool biomes like the mushroom island, which may mean mooshrooms might even make it into the game.

Tommaso also talked about adding an option to switch between creative and survival mode which would be pretty cool, and finally, the developers plan to release a special video that shows update 0.9.0 in action! We’ve seen plenty of pictures now, but this video will be the first time we actually see update 0.9.0 being played! It’s super exciting and I personally cannot wait for the video to be released!

Once the video is released, I’ll post it here so everybody can watch it! What do you think about this news?

 

Hey guys! I have a pretty interesting seed to share today with all of you! This seed was sent in to us by ChaosStorm0, so thank you! If you have a seed you’d like me to share with everybody, feel free to send it to our submissions email, which is submissions@minecraftpecheats.com.

Anyway, back to the seed! This seed isn’t all that fancy, but it has a nice set of islands and a few overhangs that could be perfect for using when building a home. It’s quite a simple seed really, but it’s nice and peaceful, and easy to travel across. Check it out below!

Seed name: !!!1!

In this picture, you can see one of the islands that can be found in this seed. This particular island is completely covered in trees and the terrain is a bit hilly, so this island would probably be best for just collecting materials off of. As well as the sand on the beach, there are also a few patches of clay which is pretty cool.

In the picture shown below, another island can be seen! This island would be perfect for building on! It is almost completely flat, and there is literally only one tree on the entire island. There is also a nice patch of flat ice to build on if you run out of room on the island.

So what do you all think of this seed? I personally think it looks pretty great! There is plenty of building space on the islands, so it’d be perfect if you have a building design planned. You can leave your own thoughts on this seed in the comments section below.
