Hey guys! I have something really cool to share with you today! I am going to show you how to build your very own mine cart launcher that can send minecarts off into the sky! You can use this guide to help you make your roller coasters and mine cart railways a lot more exciting! Take a look below to see how it’s done!
Firstly, you’ll want to find or build a flat overhang or mountain that allows you to drop right off of the edge. I managed to find a big overhang on the seed “the bogs of gob.”
Next, go to the flat surface and built this layout – Make sure the design is 2 blocks high.
Continue the design like this.
Next, continue the two rows of blocks towards the edge of the overhang, and fill in the gap with powered rail pieces.
Add one block on the top middle of the first area you built, and one block at the end of the powered rail track. Put a powered rail on it, to create a small ramp. You can also put a mine cart down on the first powered rail piece on the track.
Next, go back to the first area you built, and make sure there is a space of three blocks like down below. If there is, your design is complete!
To launch the mine cart off, just place a sand block on the middle block. This will force the mine cart off the edge of the ramp!
Although you can do this whilst you’re out of the mine cart, you can also do it inside of the mine cart – you could even use this to start a cool rollercoaster that drops you off the edge of a broken track and then lands back on a track below it! You can see the mine cart getting launched off the edge here!
I hope you liked this awesome mine cart launcher guide! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
Hey guys! I have an awesome map to share with you today! This map has some really fun parkour jumps in it, and awesome roller coaster rides! This map is only for update 0.8.0, so you’ll have to wait till it’s released before you can play it, or if you’ve got the Android BETA you’ll be able to play it today. Take a look below to see some pictures and download the map for yourself to play on!
This map was made by MCPETuguldur – thanks for making this awesome map!
Here you can see the start of the map! There are a bunch of parkour jumps that take you up into the sky – they are quite tricky to get across, and if you fall, you’ll have to start climbing back up again because this map is on survival mode!
Here you can see some of the jumps from a closer perspective. Once you have gotten used to the type of jumps you need to do, it becomes a lo easier.
Once you get past the first parkour area, you’ll be able to ride the roller coaster into the next area!
And here you can see the end! I really enjoyed this map, and hopefully you guys will too!

I hope you all enjoy this awesome map! It is a shame that not everybody can play it straight away, but once update 0.8.0 is out, this map will be a great thing to play to test out the awesome new mine cart features that have been added to update 0.8.0.
Hey guys! I have a really epic seed to share with you today! This seed has a big mountain area, some huge extreme overhangs, and a few hilly areas, along with lots and lots of trees. Check it out below!
Seed name: the bogs of gob
Below you can see the picture I have taken of the range of mountains you’ll find near spawn. It looks quite nice, but the most interesting terrain can be found by going right from here.
If you go right and follow the mountain range, you’ll end up finding this HUGE overhang! It is hard to see at first and looks just like a normal mountain range, but then as you go over the hills, you’ll realize that the mountain range is actually part of the huge overhang!
Here is another look at it from a different angle! The overhang is huge, the mountains are quite large, and yes, there is even a lava fall here too! I think it looks epic!
There are a few other hills and overhangs around the rest of the map, along with a bunch of trees.
There are also a few sandy hills quite close to the huge overhang. I like seeing sandy hills – usually they are quite a rare thing to have, and they definitely add an extra something to the terrain in the world.
I hope you all like this awesome seed! Let me know in the comments what you plan to do in this seed once you’ve put it into your own game!
Hey guys! I have an awesome seed to share with you today! This seed has a bunch of mountains, a bunch of trees, and a lot of nice terrain to explore! Take a look below to see what I mean.
Seed name: new york
Here you can see some of the cool mountains that are found in this seed. This range of mountains has a small overhang, a waterfall, and more than ten trees on top of the mountain! I think this would be a nice place to set up base – would you agree?
Here is a shot from a bit further away. Here you can see a few different overhangs and mountains above Steve.
And here are some more mountains, and a small pond! I think this is a really great view, and it gives a very nice look at the scenery below.
Here is a closer look at the lake – there seem to be trees all over the place!
There is also a lava fall on this seed. It is a very small lava fall, but if you need lava for anything, here it is!
Personally I think this seed would be a great seed for anybody looking for a new survival world, but are also looking for a world that has some nice background scenery and mountainous terrain to explore.
What are your opinions on this seed? Make sure to let me know in the comments below! Also, feel free to tell us your favorite types of seed so we can help find them for you!
