Hey guys! It’s really quite a miracle that we managed to get both infinite worlds and caves into Minecraft Pocket Edition, but not only that, they were released at the same time! Some people even have trouble with running Minecraft on their PC, so the work the developers have done on MCPE to make sure it runs smoothly is really impressive!

Recently, Tommaso released a blog giving details on how he managed to make the caves work in Minecraft Pocket Edition without much lag, and whilst it’s quite a complicated read, it has some interesting pictures you guys may be interested! Of course, if you do want to read it, you can do so by going here: http://tomcc.github.io/2014/08/31/visibility-1.html

Simply put, when the caves were first released to Minecraft Pocket Edition, the game ‘rendered’ them, even if they couldn’t be seen. This basically meant that players could be walking above ground, but your phone would still be putting a lot of effort into making the caves be in the game. This is how much caves rendered before Tommaso made a change to the system.

After Tommaso made some changes, caves didn’t render nearly as much as they used to, unless players could actually see them, and this has helped with frame rate and performance on MCPE considerably! This new change to the cave system has been so useful that Mojang even used it on Minecraft PC to help PC players run Minecraft better!

Does this kind of development information interest you or was it too boring?

Hey guys! Camdyn has just made a pretty awesome castle tower design and has sent it in for us to check out, and I thought I’d share it here because it looks quite cool! We’ve seen a lot of castles recently, but this particular design is just a small watchtower that could be built as part of a castle wall, or on it’s own outside of the castle. The design looks pretty awesome, and you’ll see why below!

As you can see in the first screenshot, the creator of this design has built a small area around the castle tower so you can get a good idea of what it could like as part of a full world design. There is a small path leading up to the castle tower, and another building outside of it. At the entrance, there are two trees which have been put up for decoration.

The tower itself isn’t gigantic, but it is fairly tall, and it manages to fit a few floors inside of it. It would certainly be hard to climb it, that’s for sure! Although, if you were up for the challenge, you could possibly do it because the castle tower is almost completely covered in vines! At the top of the tower there is a large red and white flag.

Here’s a quick glimpse inside the castle tower.

Hey guys! I have a pretty awesome seed that I’d like to share with you all today! This seed features some interesting terrain, along with a cave right next to spawn that has a pool of water and a lava fall in! If you’re looking for lava and water and you want to find it quickly, then this seed might be just right for you! Check out the seed below!

Seed name: mineandcraft

Firstly I thought I would show you the kind of terrain you can expect to see right at the spawn point. As you can tell by the picture shown below, this is an old world seed, so you will need to choose that in the settings menu to get this seed to work. There is a lot of mountainous terrain in this seed, and a cool island area with a few trees on.

The cave is open and can be found on the side of a hill – it shouldn’t be too hard to find considering this is an old world seed! As you can see in the picture below, the cave opening is pretty large, and there’s plenty of areas to explore down there. You may want to bring some torches so you can see what you’re doing though.

As mentioned before, there is some lava in this seed, and it can be seen in the screenshot shown below.

There is also a pool of water pretty close by too!

So, what did you think of this seed? Do you think you would use it for a survival world, or do you think there isn’t enough decent terrain at the spawn area to make it worth it? Feel free to leave your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

Hey guys! I have a pretty awesome new seed that I’d like to share with you all today! This seed features some interesting terrain right next to spawn, along with a pretty large village near the spawn area too! You should definitely give the seed a look below.

Seed Name: I Suck At Cave Bases

In the first picture that I’d like to show you, you will be able to see the village that I mentioned before! In this village, there are a few standard village houses, four double farms and one single farm, and on top of that there is a blacksmiths with a chest in it! The village has been generated in a plains biome, but it crosses over into a small swamp biome which is pretty interesting.

In the blacksmiths chest, there isn’t an amazing set of loot, but you will be able to get your hands on a saddle, a pair of iron boots and a bread loaf. Of course, the saddle is useless at the moment, but it could come in handy if horses are ever added to Minecraft Pocket Edition.

Here’s another picture showing off the other side of the village! On this side, the plains biome extends out into a roofed forest biome, and from here you’ll be able to collect so much wood you could swim in it! Roofed forest trees don’t have nearly as much wood per tree trunk as other trees, but they are always so compacted together that  you can often get a lot of wood from these biomes even just in a small area.
