Happy Weekend! We've got some really awesome official contests/event going on this month! Some of the community contest and event deadlines are also approaching, so be sure to take a good look at the table below if you're looking to participate in any! We're featuring a mythical beast skin, a blog that also includes a tutorial on how to make a pixel version of yourself, a data pack that adds new cooking methods and recipes to Minecraft, and MORE!


We're hosting our first event crafted for Minecraft Bedrock Edition players! It's your time to shine by showing everyone what is possible in Minecraft with RTX ON. Java Edition players, you can still enter but be sure to read the details under How to Enter.

TWO artists will be selected by NVIDIA to receive a Geforce RTX Graphics card!

Deadline: February 15


We launched this month's official Skin Contest, 2121!

Show us the future - but not next year, next century!Your task is to predict what life will be like in the year 2121. There are no wrong or right answers here. Dazzle us with your favorite futuristic fiction - post-apocalypse, sci-fi, dystopia, cyberpunk, and so on. Or enthrall us with some speculation of your own - will we be a space-faring civilisation with alien friends 100 years from now? Or will we return to primitive society instead? Or perhaps humanity will be entirely replaced
by robots.

Deadline: January 29

We're teaming up with Gheppio to bring you an exciting and unique contest, Maze Making Contest, powered by his latest brilliant Minecraft machine...Maze Maker Deluxe!
Maze Maker Deluxe is a machine that will easily allow you to generate and customize your mazes or challenge tracks! Your task for this contest is to build custom maze tiles and use the machine to generate a unique entry. You get your own lab with 20 slots to build custom maze tiles, 4 special interface packs to help you layout your maze and limitless options to generate.

: February 15


Steps 1, 2, 3 of Make Maker

Gheppio also released two example maze maps this week; The Challenge Maze and the Tree Maze - both use the Maze Maker Deluxe:

The Challenge Maze

This example represents what I call as a "binary" maze: templates have no orientation and only one primary function: wall, path, trap etc. Many special templates are also included, like doors, lava pits, mini-mazes, bridges, parkour bridges, timed doors, traps and more!

This map also showcases the Symbolic Interface Pack.

Tree Maze

This example represents instead what I call as "directional" maze: template contents have an orientation and need to be associated correctly in order to make a path. This example includes a huge park with wooden catwalks suspended between its trees and also a couple of hidden tree houses.

This map also showcases the Directional Interface Pack.

Intrigued? You should be. Check out the official Maze Making Contest page for more details. For questions and comments, visit the Make Maker deluxe Project page.


Gaming Month, hosted by The PMC Sheep is a skin event for everything gaming related. This is also an event to celebreate his 100 Subscriber Milestone. Congratulations!

Deadline: February 20

GC7FTH8 The Cockatrice of Church Street (Letterbox Hybrid) in Yorkshire,  United Kingdom created by Muddy Woodies
Fun Fact: a cockatrice is considered a venomous serpent! [source]
One of our favorite skins this week was created by nerdyy. Cockatrice is an entry for lovfallande's Medieval Mayhem Skin Contest and was inspired by the art you see to the left. We think they perfectly captured this medieval beast through their skin!

TomConn submitted a blog this week that features the PMC Group Picture that has been a work in progress for quite some time now (the forum post dates back about 6 Months ago). The blog goes into the history of the Group Photo and how it started as an idea sparked back in 2017 as a "wall of awesome" for his server and exploded into an inclusive PMC Group photo with almost 100 members wanting to be a part of.

The blog also includes a tutorial on how to make your own character
If you have any questions on how to create your own character, visit the PMC Group Photo Discord!

Wall of Awesome


One of the top data packs this week was Immersive Cooking by ImCoolYeah105! The submission states:

"Immersive Cooking is an ambitious Minecraft datapack that aims to revamp the entire hunger system with a creative free-form cooking system. It nerfs simple foods like baked potatoes and cooked porkchops, while providing new ways to mix ingredients to create even better food items. Bake, boil, fry, stack, mash, chop, mix, squeeze, and brew your way to the best meal you've ever tasted (in Minecraft)."

There are also almost 100 new ingredients to cook with, and over 10^23 cooking combinations! Fry a patty, bake bread, make some cheese, slice bread and stack it for a hamburger! Nom Nom.

Haftklamrar's Imperial - II Class Star Destroyer went treading on reddit this week! This 1:3 scale Star Destroyer took about 12 hours to create; the ship doesn't have an interior so you can customize your space craft to suit you.

The reddit thread has nearly 10,000 upvotes and over 300 comments!

Below you can find the ship hovering over Greenfield by THEJESTR. Greenfield is the Largest City in Minecraft... and looks like it's about to be taken over.
