Am I the only one who just found out about this? Anyway, just thought I'd add it to the site. Here's the second soundtrack to Minecraft, dubbed Volume Beta.
Check out this video!
Hey guy's, hope everything's going well! Here's a snippet of a few cool things and the latest news on Minecraft.
So, here we are with the second part to whats going to happen to Minecraft in 1.7 (you can see the first part here). Let's start off with the new biomes.
Why I split it into two articles: I love images and I'm sure lots of us do. I decided to put in a lot of images as examples rather than have paragraph upon paragraph of boring text. Also, I don't think any of us like overly long articles; but if you think it's better to have it all in one article, let me know
I've often marvelled at the complex worlds people come up with on Minecraft. I particularly enjoy looking at maps with skyscrapers and modern structures in modern cities. If you're one of those people too, check out this sneak peek for a tour of a world-class city containing replicas of buildings including the Trump Tower, BMO and one of my favourites: The Bellagio Hotel! The world has been made on the XBOX 360 by a very creative user with the gamertag: TH3 3ND 0F TiM3.
I've had this idea in my head for almost a year now. I knew what I wanted to do, but wasn't sure if it would work. After a long time of armchair-engineering, I decided that the best way to test my idea was with a soldering iron and a screwdriver.
Hello World! Just a quick idea,
Yes, that's right. Apparently, you don't have to play Minecraft on your computer or mobile device anymore. Mojang recently created a port of the Minecraft: Pocket Edition that they're calling Minecraft: Pi Edition.
Notch loves Halloween. He must, because he keeps putting scarier and scarier things into Minecraft around Halloween time!
Our Minecraft reproduction of the Mount Falcon Manor House in Ballina Ireland. The mansion has a basement, first floor, second floor, and an attic. So far, only the second floor has been (somewhat) finished. We also made a small sewer tunnel that connects to the basement. The mansion is being built as part of a set for a minecraft mini-series we will be filming.
Here's a timelapse of Pixel art that we made in Minecraft. 4 hours of footage sped up to 2 and a half minutes! Enjoy :)
This is a modified version of our Chicken Warfare video with the song Ruffneck Bass by Skrillex. It still tells the same story, but some parts are a bit different.
Video: . This map requires the 12w37a snapshot or better, and you must turn on command blocks to use it.
Finally, after about 7 months (off and on) The Free City of Hannover is finally finished. Video: .
This is a short Minecraft film we made about a guy who gets revenge on his killer in an unusual way.
Hey guys, corndog97 here! As most of you know I have been working on an extensive mega build with my friends Knight Skelly, Killer Oliver, and HUD (howcanudothis). I have to say, my mates have done such a good job, and picked up the pattern within an hour. Here's what it looks like so far: As you can see on the lower part of the screen Skelly threw in a cool little mini model of an average Star Destroyer. The ship model we are currently building is a Super-Class, such as Darth Sidious' or Pal...
Hello! This is the Slave 1 from Star Wars (Jango Fett's ship) for the Space Weekly Challenge! This is a view from the font (hopefully there will be more asteroids)! View from the left. View from the back. View from the right. And a way to get inside! Enjoy!
Out of all of the new features in Minecraft 1.3, tripwires are undoubtedly the most fun to play with. They provide an entirely new functionality that's still being innovated and discovered.
Trees can be annoying in Minecraft, because they're organic and grow in unpredictable ways. But there are a few techniques for controlling how trees grow so that you can have a forest that looks exactly like you want it to! Come join us at our workshop this Saturday and we'll show you how to make trees grow how you'd like them to! Then you can compete to see who can make the coolest tree! Workshops are held on our server, mc.wonderhowto.com, every Saturday at 12:01 pm PST (3:01 pm EST). I hop...
So I've been pretty busy with uni lately, but this was something I'd thought about a lot and I came up with a way to send an infinitely expandable chain of redstone with trip wires. Let me know what you think.
BUD switches (short for Block Update Detector) can be triggered without levers, buttons, tripwires, or any other traditional switches. Instead, they're triggered by changes in block status. That is, placing a block, destroying a block, hoeing grass, clearing snow, etc.

For a while I've been playing around, buliding a redstone playground. I've tried to gather and build some things, from a simple AND-gate to more complex things. It is not supposed to be a place where I try to be a show-off, but rather a place where people can come and get inspired or just walk around and push buttons for fun. The designs aren't supposed to be "the" solution to any redstone-problem but rather somnething that is easy to build or atleast get some kind of understanding how to sol...
The main objective is to defend your Obsidian temple while attempting to destroy the opponents. To do so a pickaxe will spawn 3m after you begin and every 3 minutes after that in the temple in the centre jungle.
Okay, it's not actually cake-powered, but it does use cake! Owing to the fact that cake and trapdoors are less than half a block tall, we can use fenceposts (which are a block and a half tall) attached to pistons to push people along, because the tops of the fenceposts will invisibly pop up through cake and trapdoors.
Our server is primarily a fun server, so we don't often get huge, epic builds of amazingness. And yet that's exactly what we've got with Mgabrys's build, the Portland. Or, more specifically, Zeppelin City OR-2019 "Portland".
Yes! soon I will be able to log in more as I untie the shackles this map has placed on me in the time leading up to its eventual release and log in once in a while!
First of all, this was not invented by me. I state this clearly and the link for the original discussion is located below. I made this video, as the original author did not do so, in an attempt to raise awareness as to the awesome concept that it is.
A friend of mine sent me a link to the work of Laura Bifano, and I was totally blown away. She has a whole gallery of Minecraft-inspired art of various animals, and it's just the coolest thing in the world! Check out this one, small example: I don't want to repost all of them here, because you should definitely go check them out at her gallery. However, if anyone wants to make any (or all) of these for our current Mythical Creatures challenge, I'll allow it!
The hardest part of starting a minecart railroad in Minecraft is getting it started. Anyone can lay some track in a circle, but what's the best way to stop and start your cart? In this Saturday's workshop, we'll be covering a variety of designs for minecart "train stations", so to speak, that effectively stop and start your minecarts.
You knew it was coming - and it's finally here. After 2.5+ months, my solo build aka : "Zeppelin City One" is complete. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but this thing is large enough for a video. Special thanks to Pmag and Ping for helping throw switches and set day / night during the video "shoot". Also included an assortment of in-build photos plus the source image that the Airship started from.
Here's a small-medium sized PvP arena that I made with my friend a few days back on my personal bukkit server.
A minigame we built with redstone! Video: .
I've discovered something in minecraft! Invisible pressure plates!!! Pretty excited!!
As anyone who has tried it knows, stacking pistons on top of each other in order to combine their effects is really, really complicated. Stacking two on top of each other is only slightly hard, but the difficulty rises exponentially with each added piston. Stacking three is pretty tough, and stacking four is downright ridiculous.
A redstone clock is a pretty easy mechanism to make. A digital readout for that redstone clock is a little harder, and that's what Lesnoydude has made that won him the staff choice award.
Not to be confused with the band, ABBA switches are so named because they reverse outputs such that they fire in A-B-B-A order. So, your redstone devices will essentially fire in one order (A and then B) when activated, and then deactivate in the reverse order (B and then A).
I was messing around in single player, (because the server is down) when a wild idea came to my mind. To build a printer, i have seen many examples on youtube, but all of them where to complex to my understanding of redstone. The end result was simple and it could save 4 images. The printer only prints in 2 colours in white (wool) and grey (cobblestone). As you have seen in the las image above, there are 25 buttons on the wall, they are parallel to the display and you can use them to edit the...
