Hey guys! There is one very important feature that hasn’t managed to fully make it to Minecraft Pocket Edition for quite some time now, and that is redstone. Ever since update 0.4.0, the developers have talked about adding redstone into the game, but we still haven’t got any functioning redstone components. Today I’d like to talk about what’s happened to redstone in Minecraft Pocket Edition so far, and what we can expect to see in the future.

Redstone in past updates

In update 0.4.0, redstone was added to the creative inventory. However, there was no use for it, and it could not be placed on the ground like in the PC version. In the following updates, we didn’t see any progress on redstone, although the developers did talk about it. Eventually, when update 0.8.0 came out, the developers added redstone ore into the game, allowing players to find and mine redstone. At this point, redstone could still not be used.

Redstone in the future

Now that we know about the history of redstone in Minecraft Pocket Edition, I thought I’d talk about the potential future for the feature. It’s likely the developers already have plans for redstone in MCPE for the future, but so far they have not managed to actually develop it. At one point in time, one of the developers working on MCPE even mentioned that redstone may make it into 1.0.0.

Of course, since then, a lot has changed. The 1.0.0 update has been renamed to the 0.10.0 update, and instead of adding a load of features into 0.10.0, the developers decided instead to just add bug fixes and skins. This means that redstone may be coming in future updates, but we really don’t know when.

Hopefully we’ll hear more in the near future, and when we do, we’ll keep you updated!

If you ever thought wooden houses couldn’t be fancy, then you should take a look at these two house designs I’m going to share below! These houses look absolutely amazing, and it just shows that with some creativity and a lot of work, you can make a fancy house out of pretty much  anything in Minecraft! I’d like to thank Na for making these great designs! Check them out below.

In the picture shown below, both of the houses can be seen. The one on the left isn’t quite as fancy as the house on the right, but honestly, both of them look really nice! The outside of these houses were made almost entirely made out of birch wood planks and birch wood logs, and it worked really well!

If you take the absolutely awesome house on the right out of the picture, you’ll notice that even the smaller house looks quite nice, and together they both look like two very realistic houses that have a building shape you’d expect to see on a real house.

Here’s a look at the inside of one of the houses. This is the smaller house, and the inside has been almost completely built with the same blocks as the exterior! There is however a few changes; for example there is a carpet down in some areas, a few bookshelves on the walls, and a few other minor changes.

Here’s a look inside the attic of the larger house. In my opinion, the outside looks much, much better! With a bit of work though, the outside could look just as good as the inside.

Hey guys! Today I have a pretty nice seed that I’d like to share with you all! This seed was recently found and sent in by AmanthaRae, and it features a rather large mega taiga biome near the spawn area. These particular biomes have some very tall trees, along with some interesting ground terrain. If you’ve never seen a mega taiga biome before, you should definitely check this seed out!

Seed Name: 1407539198

In the picture shown below, the mega taiga biome you will be able to find in this seed can be seen! In this particular picture, lots of taiga biome trees can be seen towering above the ground below, along with some hilly areas and a small river!

There isn’t ordinary dirt in mega taiga biomes; instead you will find podzol, a different type of dirt that has it’s own texture and color. I think it’s always nice to see a bit of variety in the world, and this certainly is the case with this particular biome! You’ll also find a few mossy cobblestone boulders scattered around these biomes, and they can be great to use as decorative blocks!

In this picture, a small hill can be seen. Most mega taiga biomes are typically quite flat, so it’s refreshing to see a biome with a bit more definition to it. You’ll also notice that there are quite a few mushrooms on this hill, as well as another mossy cobblestone boulder!

And finally, here is a picture showing off just how tall the trees are in this biome!

Hey guys! A week has passed, and it’s now time to close up the third survive a seed challenge and choose a winning design! This time round, you guys wanted an infinite world seed, so we’ve received a lot of very creative designs. It was hard to choose a winner, but I managed to in the end. Hopefully you will all enjoy the winning design! Thanks to everybody that took part, I really liked all of your designs!

The winning design was by Jonah, and it features a really decorated wooden building! I received a bunch of gigantic designs from a lot of you, but I think this design had the most thought put into it. This design feels like a real house, and I think that’s what makes it stand out.

There is a well outside the front, and a farm on the right. Behind the farm, there is a small tree farm, which Jonah has used to grow and collect wood. On the left, there is another tree farm, and a place where sugar cane is growing too!

Things are just as decorative on the inside, too! There is a nice red carpet leading from the front door, and two different wood plank blocks have been used to create a patterned floor. Everything about this design feels fancy and well thought out! Well done Jonah!

What world type shall we do for the fourth survive a seed challenge?
