Welcome Ladies and Gentleblocks to another tutorial. As most of you know, I'm very busy with other projects at the moment in terms of exams, socialising as well as my YouTube videos and Site Moderation. Sadly, this means that I'm unable to blog as frequently or at least in not as much depth as I usually do and for that I apologise. Fear not, I have some nice little blogs in the works that'll give you a bite of encouragement for your own projects.

I do however have time to concoct up a little tutorial blog for you guys, this time on how to make Fireworks in the latest Minecraft version 1.8.

Thanks for an outstanding milestone of 152,000 views on this blog guys. This is by far one of my greatest accomplishments and I'm glad so many people appreciate the blog. It is now also the 3rd most popular blog ever on Planet Minecraft which is a stunning thought, so thank you for that also.

Fireworks are unfortunately a tad difficult to craft and get used to.

Thanks a lot for reading and I hope I've shown you how to make these amazing fireworks. Keep in mind that sounds for these are now implemented in Minecraft 1.4.6 and have been passed through into 1.8 and future updates.

Fireworks can now catch on fire when passed through lava! You can therefore make flaming fireworks. Credit Kinsi55

Fun Stuff with Fireworks : 07/17/2014 12:56:20 pm7/17/14

I have added an entirely new section right at the bottom of this blog which showcases some cool creations or tricks you can achieve in using fireworks! Feel free to PM me any other creations you have found.

Update #8 : 05/26/2013 2:08:55 pm5/26/13

Fixed font issues. Fixed borked out images and adjusted the versions in correspondance with the current Minecraft versions. Added some information and .gif of fireworks passing through lava to inform users about setting fireworks on fire.

Update #7 : 03/29/2013 2:08:38 pm3/29/13

Totally redesigned the layout with the headers and graphics, made sure the image sizes corresponded to the PMC site width. Adjusted the Minecraft versions too to suit more recent releases.

Update #6 : 02/10/2013 2:07:59 pm2/10/13

Fixed broken video links for the firework examples (videos had somehow become privated on YouTube). Added a thank you note paragraph for the support being given for the post as well as its recent ranking accomplishments.

Update #5 : 02/03/2013 7:48:26 am2/03/13

Fixed some grammatical issues that users kindly pointed out. Changed some version numbers, fixed some graphical issues.

Update #4 : 01/18/2013 2:07:11 pm1/18/13

Edited out some changes in terms of available versions with the fireworks and when they are effective with the various snapshots, removed download links for snapshots.

Update #3 : 01/13/2013 2:06:30 pm1/13/13

Fixed some sentences that didn't make sense and added some extra information. Updated videos to newest videos fresh with annotations to types of fireworks.

Update #2 : 12/23/2012 4:13:21 am12/23/12

Adjusted details due to their release in the latest Minecraft 1.4.6 version.

Update #1 : 12/14/2012 2:08:14 am12/14/12

Fixed some text and whatnot in regards to the release of snapshot 12w50a - New sounds, etc.

You really shouldn't be using the update log for some of the changes you've made. It makes it unfair for all the other people who actually use it according to the rules.

I updated the update log after making major changes to the post. These included new graphics, new images, new paragraphs of text. Concerning your "25 things you can do" post, you also used the update log for fixing grammar issues I believe? And changing a single word ('Accept' to 'Except')?

That was before I knew the rules of the update log. If you look at the more recent updates you can see they are for only large updates.

Even so, same thing applies. As I have done also, using it only for major updates to the content of the submission and the submission itself.

I've used this technique many times on servers just to troll. But I only used it in small spaces. This is because they can't see and I would kill my victims.
