I want to address some issues people are having with the project. To really step up the game and make it entirely foolproof I am looking for a web developer who can help me.
I would like to create a website where people can select what region(s) they want to download visually. Based on the requested tile(s) a download is generated that downloads ONLY the selected tiles, the spawn tile and all the regular stuff (level.dat, etc).
Do you know anyone who you expect knows how to do this? Tell me!
Failed experiment: I was experimenting with a script and got the outcome below. There is potential to use this script to create chaos. Maybe i'll see if i can manipulate it to create a whirlwind model.
Repository update: I've spend many, many hours cutting out 660 objects and turning them into schematics. This covers two subsets of models.
Exciting news. I'm working on an update for my tree repositories. They've aged gracefully, but no longer meet the quality standards I wish to aspire to. After tens of thousands of downloads (thanks!) it's time.
I added a Time Machine to PMC allowing us to browse content from any year or even any month since launching the community in November of 2010!
As a time machines tend to be, it's surprisingly powerful and fun to jump around to see what was popular during what time. You're bound to find new old content that you missed and depending on how long you've been in the Minecraft scene, you'll feel the nostalgia.
The Member Profile update arrives today! It started as a simple concept and expanded over time into the 4 column widget system you see now. All existing profiles are automatically converted and you can start customizing from there.
My main goal was to provide the freedom to customize our profiles while still maintaining a consistent style across all of them. It needed to be fun, easy to use and expandable.
The widget system is launching with 18 different widget types plus 3 full page only sections.

All widgets can be added, removed, ordered, vertically resized and horizontally sized across 1-4 columns (some types have column restrictions). More widgets will be added over time.
It will be hard to miss that profiles have custom banners! They can be positioned vertically, just drag the banner and the viewport can be resized from 150-250 pixels, drag bottom of banner viewport.
The site homepage features a personalized site feed which pulls in community content and wall posts from your subscriptions as well as various site notifications. Besides your own feed, you can also browse a version of any members personalized site feed by visiting their profile, /member/[username]/feed/. If you like a member there is potential that they are following members you'll like as well. Now you can discover them by viewing different feeds on the site.
I'm excited to see what everyone does with their new profiles!
