Hey guys! I have a pretty cool sail boat design to share with you all today! This design was recently created by ElHorror, and in my opinion it looks really cool! Take a look below to see the boat design for yourself!

In this picture, the sail boat  can be seen from the back. As you can see, quite a lot of work has gone into adding detail to the main boat shape, but the sails on the boat are very interestingly shaped, and I’m sure it took time to perfect these too!

In the next screenshot, which can be seen below, a view of the front of the sail boat can be seen. This picture better shows the different blocks used to build this design. On the top, mostly wood planks have been used. In the center, quartz blocks, and at the bottom, grey wool is being used. There is also a few quartz blocks on the top of the boat near the wheel – this is where the boat would be controlled from.

In the next screenshot, the sail can be seen in full view from the side. It looks as if a lot of detail has been put into the sail to make it look as lifelike as possible. Do you think ElHorror has done a good job here?

Here is a look at one of the inside rooms.

Hey guys! If you didn’t hear already, it has now been confirmed that a few of the Mojang developers that are working on Minecraft Pocket Edition are currently on their way so see Microsoft at their headquarters! Unfortunately, because of this, progress on the 0.10.0 update has been delayed for a week, but a lot of good things could come from this trip too!

It is likely that the developers of Minecraft are talking to Microsoft about what they could do to improve Minecraft in the future, so it will be interesting to see what Microsoft suggest for the developers. Of course, I can’t guarantee anything, but I would like to make a few guesses about what the developers may be getting up to and what Microsoft may ask from them.

A Windows Phone Port

news-1

This is almost 100% likely at this point, but I expect that part of the reason developers have traveled to the Microsoft HQ is to discuss development progress for the Windows Phone port of Minecraft Pocket Edition. It was mentioned in the past that it was being worked on, but this meeting seems to suggest that they may be putting more effort into this port in the near future.

New Features

news-2

Microsoft may even offer the developers some more helping hands, and this might help Mojang to work on more features quicker! This could be completely wrong, but adding more developers to the team could be a possible move by Microsoft.

More Minecraft

news2

Microsoft is probably looking at the best ways they can get more Minecraft out to the world, so we may see more books, toys games, and maybe even a movie!

Hey guys! I have a pretty cool map to share with you all today. In this map, you will be able to find a really fun parkour course that goes all the way through a large taiga biome. If you are interested in trying this map out, take a look at the map below, or click on the download link to try it for yourself.

In the first picture, the start of the taiga biome parkour course can be seen! In this area,y ou will be jumping over blocks really high up in the air. There isn’t really much room for failure here, which makes it very challenging.

In the next picture, the parkour course can be seen going through a set of houses that have been built in the taiga forest! It’s nice to see the creator putting some effort into the environment instead of just the parkour course! I think it looks awesome.

In some areas in this map you will even be taken underground  and will have to jump over lava pits!

There are some fairly easy places in this map, but there are also some very challenging areas. It is a nice mix, and I think that a lot of you will enjoy this map, especially if you enjoy playing parkour maps.

Here is another look at one of the parkour areas in this map.

Hey guys! Mr. Zombie is back with yet another interesting building design, and today I thought it would be worth sharing. This design is a farm house, and whilst it isn’t 100% unique, it is quite nice and I think that houses like this should accompany farms more often!

In the first picture, which can be seen below, the side of the farm house is shown! If you look closely, you can actually see that this is the front entrance for the house, and the farm is actually attached onto the side of the building. In the farm, there is a variety of different crops growing.

There is also a door on the side of the building that leads straight into the farm. Because of the shape of the farm house, you could say that any side is the front, and any side is the back! Either way, it’s super easy to get in and  out of this house from every direction.

In the next picture, which can be seen below, a bird’s eye view of the house is shown. As you can see, the overall layout of this farm house is pretty simple. The house is a single square shape, and the farm is a smaller fenced off square area, with a small stream of water in the center of it.

In the next image, the inside of the farm house design can be seen.
