Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks. At first, people built structures to protect against nocturnal monsters, but as the game grew players worked together to create wonderful, imaginative things.

It can also be about adventuring with friends or watching the sun rise over a blocky ocean. It’s pretty. Brave players battle terrible things in The Nether, which is more scary than pretty. You can also visit a land of mushrooms if it sounds more like your cup of tea.

I agree, this is awesome.

Minecraft's head developer, Jens Bergensten (a.k.a Jeb), posted a new blog post today showing off some of the changes coming to Minecraft's world generator with the next big update. Some of the changes include smaller Oceans, more varied Biomes, as well as rare varients of the existing Biomes.

You can read the full blog post here: https://mojang.com/2013/08/minecraft-world-generator-update/

It's been awhile since I've picked up Minecraft, but I think once the new Biomes hit I might have to start up a new map and see what's out there. What do you, my fellow Happy Haunts, think of the next update?

New in the Technic Launcher: Hexxit!

It's a new and brilliant modpack in the Technic Launcher; and these are the amazing mods in it:

Hexxit is a more fighting-type minecraft modpack, not very common. Be sure to check it out!

Here is a video i did for this.

I want someone to remake The Dark Knight in Minecraft. Not just the trailer, the whole film. Its cool, I can wait.

Minecraft fans are notorious for making crazy things in game and this recent fan project is no exception. You need to watch the first 5 minutes of Star Wars rendered in Minecraft.


"Minecraft: The Story of Mojang is the second feature from game culture archivists 2 Player Productions... This feature-length documentary follows the young company over the course of its first year as their profile expands across the world stage and into the homes of millions of gamers. Featuring insights from industry icons (Peter Molyneux, Tim Schafer), journalists (Geoff Keighley, Stephen Totilo), tastemakers (Gabe & Tycho of Penny Arcade), and players profoundly impacted by the game (Yogscast, The Shaft, Minecraft Teacher), the film serves as a time capsule for one of this generation's most unorthodox success stories."

I am really interested in checking this... Read All

Like many of you, when my Holiday time off comes around I plan on playing some games. Minecraft will no doubt be played and it seems that Mojang will be updating it so you can ring in the New Year Minecraft Style.... Minecraft Style.... OP, OP, OP!

From the Mojangs mouth:

"What’s this? This doesn’t sound like a redstone update at all!”, you say. “Indeed,” we say. Thing is, we* suddenly decided we wanted to make sure that you have fireworks for New Year’s Eve, so we’re working in several parallel branches of the code now. One is for the 1.5 “Redstone Update,” and one is now for a 1.4.6 patch update. This update will be out before Christmas, and 1.5 will wait until January... Read All

I know many of you have little happiness in your lives. You come here for a few things and I imagine my life changing Minecraft videos are part of the reason. I heard your calls over the vast sea of the Internet bits and am gifting to you my latest video.

Oh right the video is also fairly short, clocking a bit over 5 minutes.

I was inspired to build a Treehouse in one of the taller trees on my farm. I am proud of my Minecraft creations thinking I am doing some impressive work until I went to a few Minecraft servers and my hopes of achieving Minecraft greatness were dashed. I seem to have less time than some Minecraft pros.

That said, existing in a world like Minecraft... Read All

I hate to say. This is the worst random map of Minecraft that I've ever played. The island is tiny. Super tiny, it is literally small enough to walk across all directions without traveling a whole day. I died 6 times and got 3 dogs killed because resources (food) are hard to come by, and it is ultra depressing because animals do not spawn very often. I actually hate this world. I have recorded every play through on this island. I do not know how much longer I will because this place drives me nuts. Enjoy

This is a quick ~7 minute video showing off my minecraft world. I've only been playing on the world for a few hours so there isn't much to show. I just wanted to document the changes from beginning to end of my minecraft world. Plus, this will help me start my youtube channel off. I've been really wanting to start recording LP's and such for youtube but haven't been able to get it up and running. Mainly because I have been displeased with a lot of the recordings I have done.

My voice is kinda quiet in the video, my apologizes. I forgot to increase my mic before starting. So yeah, listen carefully or just turn the volume up.

Please leave some critique. I would really... Read All
