Hey guys! I have a really awesome map to share with you all today! This map is a massive city filled with loads of cool buildings and skyscrapers! This city is really well detailed, and it’s got lots of buildings and attractions that most city designs don’t include. This includes things like bridges and football stadiums. Check it out below, and if you like it, you can download it for yourself to try out!

In the picture below, you can see the main part of the city – this is where all of the main buildings and skyscrapers are packed together. This picture perfectly shows what a city is all about, and the various different buildings really add to the city feeling.

Because this city is based around water, there have to be bridges so players can cross the water areas. If there were cars in this game, then these bridges would be perfect for them! On the other side of the bridge, there is a more rural area – this part is on the outskirts of the city and there are trees and smaller village houses.

On top of the various different homes and skyscrapers, there are a few other interesting places to explore, like this awesome football stadium for example. Let me know what kind of things you find!

So, what do you all think of this design? I personally think this design looks super awesome! You can leave your own thoughts down below.

Hey guys! So as we all know, update 0.9.0 is being worked on by the Mojang developers, and although we’ve heard a lot about the upcoming features, we still don’t know about a release date for the new update. The truth is, not even the Mojang developers themselves know about a final release date, and they don’t want to disappoint anybody by not sticking to any dates.

Tomasso did originally say that the beta may be available in March at the earliest, but because they are heading out to GDC, it’s unlikely that we will see a beta available in March at all. This is quite unfortunate, but update 0.9.0 isn’t very far away at all. Whilst it’s not confirmed, it’s likely that the 0.9.0 beta will be made available next month, in April.

If this is true, then we can expect that the bug fixes and exploits will be worked on for the whole of April, and we’ll probably get the full release the month after, in May, which will be the point that everybody can play, Android and iOS users included.

When the beta comes out, I’ll do a review of it, and Android players will be able to test it out for themselves too.

So, finally, I’d like to say that the release window for update 0.9.0 will probably be between April-May, but once again, don’t take my word for it as it may change in the future!

Finally, as it’s getting close to release, i’d like to ask – would you like to see another, final 0.9.0 recap that goes over all of the features planned for 0.9.0?

Would you like to see another 0.9.0 recap post?

Hey guys! I have a pretty awesome house design to share with you today! This design was made by DKRplaysminecraft, and it serves as a nice placed to live, as well as a great train station, too! The house is placed on top of a mountain, so there are a few things to make sure players don’t fall off into the canyon below whilst visiting. Check it out below!

This here is the front entrance for the house. This is the side where players will enter through. The house mas been made out of a mix of both wood and stone, and I think the design is really unique. The various extra effort into this design make it stand out.

On the other side of the house, there is another building for mine carts! This building looks quite similar to the player house, although it has a large entrance for the mine cart track to pass through. I think this is a great way to get around, and I’d love to see more minecarts being used on house designs.

There are various other buildings that the mine carts will visit whilst riding along the tracks, and these buildings make sure that players can get to the various areas safely and easily! In the picture below, you can see one of the stopping points for the mine cart.

So, what did you all think of this design? I personally thought it was really nice! You can leave your own thoughts on this design in the comments section below.

Hey guys! Earlier in the week Luke sent in an interesting design of a fleet of boats he had created – it was an interesting creation and it was something original enough to stand out from typical home design. These boats acted as a home, and a lot of people wondered how they were made. Today, Luke has sent in a bunch of pictures to help us get an idea of just how to make those small boats into a nice place to live!

Firstly, you’ll want to make three floating blocks like below. These blocks need to be floating in the water – to make them, simply create pillars from the bottom of the sea all the way to the top of the sea. Once you’ve done that, break all of the blocks except for the top ones.

You’ll next want to create a wall around the four blocks, as if you were to start making a house. Instead of filling the gap up to make a floor, and making the wall taller, you’ll want to extend the wall underneath the water. Once you’ve done that, fill in the gap underwater to make a floor like this.

Next, fill in the gap, but leave one hole. Then, add a 2×2 square of blocks at the front, followed by 1 extra block to make the ship’s base.

After that, you’ll want to start building the ship, fence pieces for the side, and blocks on the back and the front work best. You’ll then want to create a ladder for the hole you left open. The underwater area will be used as a room!

You can then add some finishing touches to make it look more like a boat. You can make as many of these as you like! This build is perfect for anybody that’s using a survival seed with lots of water on.

What do you think of these boats? Would you make a place like this to live in?
