COOL COLLABORATION
ElvenJedi and Lxna did a skin collaboration this week! Each of them made an unshaded skin design (before pictures)for each other to shade and detail, following a specific palette theme. Their theme was teal & coral.

A MASSIVE MAP
How about a 20k x 21k terrain of Central Asia?! 20017 x 21555 blocks to be exact. The map includes all Central Asia, from northwest Kazakhstan to Cambodia; from southern Pakistan to Lake Baikal in Central Siberia. We're wondering if that's how long it took them to make this!

Made by DraperyOfConsciousne, this is their first activity in almost 3 years! Their last project, Italy 1:50 was just as massive of a project but was abandoned due to studies #adulting.

A warm welcome back, we're looking forward to seeing more of your work!







TERRIFIC TOOL
After a few hundred hours, Mr_Mega_Mango finished creating a 2D Pixel Shape Generator for application in Minecraft!

Its' key features include making circles, circular spaced points, lines, polygons and rectangles. It also has a built in coordinate system that makes block by block transfer to Minecraft much easier. There is also a save process that records all calculated shapes and user input and saves it to a .TXT file that can be loaded again or even sent to a friend. SWEET!

Click here to see some examples!

You can download this tool by visiting the GitHub website.

CAVE UPDATE.... Kind-of

ImCoolYeah105 was tired of waiting around for one of the most demanded Minecraft Updates - CAVES. They took matters into their own hands and created a data pack that adds 34 new cave biomes, new dungeons, underground villages and more! Their pack trended on Reddit, which prompted well-known YouTuber "Wattles" to make an entire video showcasing the Mod!

Great work, ImCoolYeah105 and congrats on your YT feature!

MERRY MADNESS!
We saw some excellent festive submissions in both the mod and texture pack section this week!

The Christmas Pack by Futureazoo fills your world with Christmas cheer by adding a candy cane themed GUI, placeable snowmen, festive lights on spruce trees, gingerbread cookies, candy cane sugar cane and more! If you're not quite ready for the Christmas vibe (you Grinch, you) then you might want to check out their Winter Pack!



Look NO further if you're in search of a Christmas themed Mod. The Noel Mod has everything you need to make your world festive including the ability to craft candy canes, peppermints, Christmas stockings, presents, Christmas lights.... need we say more?!


Ok, ok we WILL say more - this mod also includes a functional ADVENT calendar! That's right, punch it daily and receive a gift. Sweeeet!

Great skin collab btw, it's amazing to see such stuff going on!
