In the newest snapshot on top of various small things, 2 major things have been added to the game, fireworks and enchantment books. Let’s start with the fireworks.
(and for reasons involving trouble with my computers, the images will have been taken off other sites, sorry :p)
Obviously for decoration, fireworks are made by first making a firework star, this is where you decide what the firework’s colour and shape will be. By combining gunpowder with dye that makes a firework star of a certain colour,
Now as you can see this is a small ball, meaning it will leave a small explosion, but there are a lot of variations to this, these being:
different dyes making different coloured explosions,
adding a diamond adds a ‘trail’ effect
adding glowstone will add a ‘twinkle’ effect
adding a fire charge will give it a large explosion
a gold nugget gives it a star-shaped explosion
a feather gives it a burst explosion
and adding any sort of mob head such as a wither head…. well…. look for yourself
Now to make the firework. Once you have your modified firework star you have to put it in a crafting table with a piece of paper and another gunpowder.
Now the more gunpowder you add the higher it will go into the air, be sure to do this if you are using the fireworks from far away.
These look amazing, soon sound will also be added to the fireworks to make it even better, until then have a merry Christmas or whatever else you may have if you are another religion and until then, make preparations for the end of the wo- i mean the new year, see ya!
Of all the many adventure maps iv’e seen this is by far one of the best.
The introduction for the map is:
A great darkness came to the city of Chronotide and struck at the Chrono Crystal. The energy shockwave shattered the surrounding buildings. The earth split and lava spewed to the surface. It caused chaos and devastation for the inhabitants of the city.In an act of preservation, the Chrono Crystal was activated, placing the cities inhabitants in temporal stasis so that they exist between time
For this map the goal is to restore the Chrono Crystal, how do you do this? By finding the 8 reactor cores. If you look around the main crystal you will set that a set of lights is lit up on a certain path, it will only be up for a little while so if you go down that certain path you will find a door had opened up, go down it through a portal and you will find through each portal a different challenge. This map can be played alone or with friends.
Here is a picture of the ruined city:
This map was made by, and therefore all credit goes to Vladimyr, it is a great map which can be downloaded here.
I hope you enjoy it and if you want, tell me about another great map and i will show it, hopefully in much better detail. See ya!
As of the newest update, the beacon block was added, and it is a real pain to get as well, for starters you will need a nether star which is obtained from killing a wither, so go on then.
This should only take an hour or so….
and once obtained you put the nether star in the centre of a crafting table with 5 glass and 3 obsidian, like so:
after that, you will get this odd-looking block
While it by itself does nothing, right-click on it and you will see this:
kind of empty, but the pyramids give a clue, try making a 9X9 base out of iron,emerald,gold or diamond blocks and put the beacon in the middle
Instantly a light will shine upwards and at night will glow brightly, this can be done with any of the four previously mentioned blocks, now lets look at it again
Two powers will have come up, speed and haste, you can activate one of them by putting an iron or gold ingot, emerald or diamond into the slot below and selecting the one you want then pressing the tick button, in dong so you have activate the beacon and from now on while in its radius you will move faster if you have speed or mine faster if you have haste, (the rate of which depends on the item you put in to activate) but see those other abilities? Next to the ones with a bigger pyramid? Yep you guessed it, get building!
The next base does not have to be made of the same material but does have to be exactly 5X5 squares long, and you cant miss a block but you will get more abilities to choose from: Resistance, which makes you take less damage, and jump boost, which makes you jump higher.
Eventually you will get a 7X7 base
(This gives you the ability to deal more damage)
and finally, at a whopping 9X9 large base, you get this:
This monstrosity gives you access to all the abilities: including the final one, but what awesomeness could the last one possibly hold? Flying? Invincibility? Clones? Constant invisibility!?!?
Regeneration. So lets think about this for a second, a 9X9 block base would take
729 raw materials, a 7X7, 441 a 5X5 225, and a 3X3 81
so you would need 1476 raw materials of either emerald, gold diamond or iron, to give you an ability only useful in survival mode…… GEE MOJANG HOW CONVENIENT THANK YOU.
But that aside that is all for now and if you want me to post something about minecraft, message me and i will do that soon, until next time, see ya!
(also i finally got all my old worlds back! Horray for meeeeee!) I will be posting more thing soon-ish, i have just been very busy recently, sorry!
A new snapshot has been released for minecraft, this includes anvils being changed visually and you can repair tools using wood/iron/emeralds, they are also much cheaper to make now, with the bottom three rows of iron blocks now being iron ingots.
There are other small tweaks such as the fact that bats no longer trample crops abd don’t activate pressure plates, redstone repeaters given a fixed output by having a powered repeater connected to its left or right side and also more updated language files
not a very large update and I’m sorry for not updating that much but I am very busy in school at the moment, i will update hopefully this weekend and until next time, see ya!
So this huuuge update pretty much brings the x-box update to nearly the newest version of minecraft on computers, the updates are as follows:
Added a new Anvil block for repairing, merging & naming items
Renamed Chat Settings to Multiplayer Settings
Contains the old chat settings menu
Option for cape-owners to hide their capes ingame
Tweaks to debugging
F3+H now shows tool and armor durability on damaged items
Now shows which cardinal direction the player is facing on the f value
The pie chart on the F3 overlay is now shown when opening it using shift+F3 instead of vice versa
Mobs no longer forget that they are aggressive against a player in Creative mode after a few seconds anymore
Creepers now can have custom explosion radius and fuse timer using edited mob spawners and NBT tags (ExplosionRadius & Fuse)
Effects given by the Beacon will be less intrusive on the screen
Level-up sound now only plays every 5 levels
Gaining experience from breeding animals.
Go here to download it!
New pictures have been surfacing, they show of tools being repaired in a certain way, (even though they can be repaired already) But these pictures show something even better, take a look!
So according to this you will be able to mix enchantments, and repair your tools at the same time!……. how many diamonds is THIS going to cost?????? Well only time will tell, until next time, see ya!
So i am thinking about making a minecraft tutorial world, a world/map that could be easily downloaded and played by people who need help in minecraft, message me with ideas or things that you would like to see in this map!
