Download an entire modern city made in minecraft! Mineton is an early 20th century contemporary Minecraft city, as impressive in scope as it is in detail. The city is vast and grand, with buildings of state and capitalism vying for space in the central regions. utside the city, extensive wheat fields spread across the plains outside the suburbs. Windmills, farmsteads and more lie beyond the view distance. When night falls, the city succumbs to a devastating plague, but wily citizens of Mineton will be able to find food and light to fend off the twin terrors of monsters and hunger.
I love Minecraft timelapse videos. There’s something mesmerizing about them, especially when things of stunning beauty and intricacy are being created. It’s like watching a painter paint. Fans of timelapse will enjoy this video of a sea-bound Carribean village being created block by block.
Ever wished you could have Minecraft ‘machines’ buttons / switches / pistons etc that were triggered by light or lack thereof? Like lights that only turn on when it is dark? This Minecraft light sensor is an impressive piece of Minecraft engineering that will take your creations to the next level of complexity. Check out the video tutorial by EthosLab. (Yes it’s 22 minutes long. Think of it as a test of your concentration span. Why, back in the old days, people could pay attention for an hour or more!)
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always felt that Minecraft lacked the kind of addictive quality that would convince one to have a catheter inserted so one could craft and pee at the same time. Fortunately, FV Disco has fixed that little quibble with the creation of this pig powered slot machine.
I have discovered evidence of Brits taking their Steampunk Cities very seriously indeed. This wicked Minecraft timelapse video is sure to impress even the most jaded of minecrafters. Just when you think they can’t build anything more, up pops another spire, another steeple, another minecart connected cathedral of wonder.
Once they’ve harvested themselves some ever burning Netherrack and zipped between portals, many people find that the Nether outlives its usefulness rather quickly. It’s too dark to really be of any aesthetic use, and if you’re using the default texture pack or one remotely faithful to the default textures then you’ll probably find the Nether a very ugly place too. But there is a way to make the Nether more comfortable. I did it by bringing the sunshine, long grass and flowers back to the Nether with me.
I’ve had 1.6 for all of ten minutes, but already a mildly fiendish plan for a very real ‘trap’door has emerged. To manufacture this trap all you need is a trapdoor (created by six wooden planks placed horizontally along the bottom of the 3 x 3 crafting grid), a solid block for the trapdoor to sit next to and a pit of lava. Oh, and a pressure plate. The trap mechanism is simple, herpty derpty enemy or mob comes by, steps on pressure plate and suddenly the floor is lava!
