Hey guys! I have a SUPER COOL screenshot to share with you all today! As you may all know, villagers have been confirmed to be in update 0.9.0 for quite a while now, but despite this, we haven’t seen or heard one single thing about villages! It was safe to assume that villages would be in update 0.9.0, because villagers need villages to live in, but until today, we weren’t 100% sure.

However, Jeb has just posted up an awesome screenshot of a village in the development build of update 0.9.0, and it’s super exciting! I have posted the picture below. As you can see, the village is looking pretty cool, although it’s not completely finished yet – the village generation is still a bit buggy, and houses are generating in the sides of hills which ends up with the place looking pretty odd!

It is quite a big picture, but it gives us a great view of what villages will be like in update 0.9.0! It will probably take a bit of extra work to truly make the houses generate proplerly – as you can see in the picture above, things aren’t quite like they are supposed to be. Below, you can see a picture of a proper village from Minecraft PC! Once the Pocket Edition version looks like this, I’m sure they’ll be ready to finally release 0.9.0!

What do you think of this news? Would you rather have update 0.9.0 with buggy villages, or wait a little longer and have 0.9.0 without any major bugs like this one?

Hey guys! I have a pretty interesting seed to showcase today – this seed isn’t absolutely amazing, but it does have a few areas that are worth checking out, and who knows, you may find that this seed is the perfect one for your next building design or survival world! This seed has a bunch of big mountains in, a few waterfalls, and a hidden cave area! Check it out below!

Seed name: mintpaw

You will first spawn in on this small patch of grass in the middle of an ocean! The patch of grass has some sugar cane on it though, which is pretty cool – if you plan to play on survival, this would be a good place to gather sugar cane from! In the distance, a few islands can be seen, including one that is pretty loaded with trees.

Here’s an interesting little area that was found along the coast of one of the islands! There is a big mountain right at the edge of the water, and then this strange terrain is sticking out the side of it. There are also a few bits of open coal here!

There is even a nice patch of open iron in this seed! It’s usually quite rare to find open iron, so it was a surprise to spot this in this seed, and it will be a great way to get a head start in a new survival world.

Here’s one of the waterfalls pouring out the side of a mountain!

And here’s the small hidden cave! It is pretty tiny, but it’s still quite cool!

Hey guys! I have a pretty awesome new design to share with you all today! This design isn’t over complicated or extra fancy, but instead it has a nice simple design that’s pretty easy to replicate and looks good, too! Sometimes, the most simple designs are the best in Minecraft, and I think this design is definitely one of the great simple designs out there. Take a look at it below!

In the picture below, you can see the side of the house! As you can see, this particular house has been suspended in the air by wooden stands, which I think looks pretty cool – this is easy to do, and it’s different enough to make it stand out! The main material of the house is a simple wooden plank block, but there are also other blocks used as well.

Here’s a bird’s eye view of the home! From here, you can see the main house, as well as a small outhouse area! The way the roof was built makes it look like a thatched village roof from up here which I think is really cool!

Here’s the front entrance! It’s nice and simple, but it looks alright and it’s also super easy to make on survival mode!

Here’s a look at the inside of the house! There is a nice area for crafting, creating and storing items, and then an area for the double bed! There is also a big bookshelf that adds a bit more depth to the whole building.

What do you think of this design? I personally think the house looks really nice, but you can leave your own thoughts in the comments section below!

Hey guys! Today is Tuesday, which means it’s time for another pixel art showcase! This week we’ve been sent in quite a few interesting designs, although all of them have a cartoony theme to them. For those that are wondering, winning post for the ships and airplanes design contest has been delayed for another week because there are so many designs to get through! Anyway, let’s get back to the pixel art, shall we?

First up is an awesome Kirby design from Creeperbomb6! Kirby is a Nintendo character that has his own series of games just like Mario! In the background, you may have also noticed the awesome Goomba design which was also made by Creeperbomb6!

That guy managed to fit in with the Nintendo theme by creating his very own Yoshi pixel art! Yoshi is one of my favorite Nintendo ever, so it was great to see this! Once again, there’s a pesky Goomba skulking around in the background..

We then have the star of the show, Mario! This pixel art was made by Mike_Struble and it looks super cool! Mike has made it look like Mario is about to hit the question mark block to collect a power up.

Next, we have gone back to the land of Minecraft with this awesome cow head art that was made completely out of wool!

And finally, we have the creeper head logo! – this one was made by buttercreeper5000! The logo is simple, but it is now iconic, and it’s always a nice surprise to see.buttercreeper5000 creeper
