Hey guys! Your week is up, and the second survive a seed challenge has come to an end! We have been sent dozens and dozens of really cool designs this week, and it was really hard to choose a winning design! However some stood out because the creators put hours and hours of time and effort into the designs! Below, I’ll showcase the winning design, but first I’d like to share a little about what Survive a Seed is about.

Survive a Seed is a new weekly post that challenges you all to try and make the best design in survival mode and only on the seed that has been shared for that particular week! These seeds are usually limited on resources, so it can be hard to build decent designs! So far, it’s been a lot of fun and I’ll be starting another one tomorrow! Now, onto the winning design!

This week, Jordan sent in a really amazing world that he has spent almost the whole week working on! I’m really impressed with the results, and I think his design is the best one this week! Here’s an image of the house from far away! On the right, Jordan has started to grow some sugar cane, and in the center of the image, there is a big fancy building!

Here’s a closer look at the building – there are plenty of windows and balconies on here! I think this looks really nice, and it would have taken a while to perfect in survival mode.

The building above isn’t the only one in this world! Here’s another one! This building looks just as cool, and could be used as a building for visitors if Jordan ever plays with his friends on this world.

And here’s another view of Jordan’s world and in this picture you can see his massive farm area!

Well done Jordan and everybody else for entering your designs! If you would like to try your luck, come back and check out the next survive a seed challenge tomorrow!

 

Hey guys! Somebody has sent in a step by step picture guide on how to build a super F1 car! I thought it was really cool, and this would be a perfect addition to a house with a garage or to a racing track! Below I’ll show the step by step pictures and also explain how to build it! Check it out below!

Firstly, place down four black wool blocks with this amount of space between them. (1 horizontal, and four vertical.)

After that, place one red block in the middle of the two front blocks, and then three white blocks in front of those. The middle white block should be a stair piece!

Next, extend the red wool by two blocks.

This step is quite tricky – put two stair pieces on each side at the back wheels, the first stair piece should face outwards, and the second stair piece should face towards the other wheels.

Next, place down two more red blocks! Leave a space in the middle for the driver’s seat!

After that, place two more red blocks on top of the back red blocks, and then a white slab block behind them!

Now, extend out the white slab block by two pieces on either side!

Next, place a mine cart in the gap for the driver’s seat! To do this, you will first need to place down a rail piece, it can be powered rail or standard rail. Once you’ve done that you can put the mine cart in and you will be finally done!

Hey guys! I have a really epic new design to share with you all today! This design is of a massive mansion, and it’s super epic! I’d really love to live in a mansion, but it might never happen! However, in Minecraft you can live in any kind of building you like, and I’d love to live in this particular mansion for sure! Check out pictures of the mansion design below!

I thought I’d do something different and start from the inside today! This first picture shows off the massive loot room in the mansion! In real life, we wouldn’t need a loot room, but in Minecraft it is almost essential! Luckily the mansion is very big so there’s enough room to have almost infinite space! In the picture below you can see how many chests there are, and also see a really cool set of chairs and a table.

Here’s a look at the kitchen room! There is a big double door fridge, a lots of cupboards on the walls, and a kitchen side which is used for preparing meals! There is also a table with a yummy cake on, and another set of chairs and a table to go with them!

Around the back, there is a massive farm for growing lots of plants in! There are four different rows in this farm, each with a different set of food on!

This mansion even has an animal farm! It’s a little packed, but I think it’s nice to have access to animals!

Hey guys! I have a really epic map to share with you all today! This map was originally created on the PC version of Minecraft, however because it was so amazing, ThePEBuildingBros have ported it to Minecraft Pocket Edition! They have ported a lot of amazing maps recently, and this one is definitely one of my favorites! Below I have posted some screenshots of the map, and at the end of the post you can download it for yourself or check out the PEBuildingBros!

The name of this map is Shark Island, and below you can see why! As you can see in the picture below, the whole world is a big island floating in the water, and the jagged area on the side looks absolutely awesome, and the cave almost looks like the mouth of a shark! The massive city behind it is also really, really cool and very detailed! Altogether the map just looks amazing!

In this picture you can get another look at the city – there is a massive waterfall at the back of the city that pours into the sea, and the city is placed on top of a big hill. It looks very majestic and almost as if it had just come out of a fantasy movie or world!

In this picture you can get a closer look at the cave! I really do think this looks like the mouth of a shark – it almost looks quite menacing! Luckily though, it is only a cave so there’s nothing to worry about!
