⭐OTHER HIGHLIGHTS
INCREDIBLE
INTERIORS
Using the cocirot resource pack, niceboat beautifully designed and decorated the interior of a house, and we're wishing it was a house in real life because we would certainly live here! The brigh kitchen with an archway into a bedroom and the grand piano with pink walls and bedding, has us swoon!

The resource pack can be found here (page may appear blank. Scroll down a little bit and you'll start to see text). Be sure to check out the "guide" page for full instructions on how to load this pack into Minecraft.






BETTER BEES
YouTuber wattles released a video showcasing 3 data packs that "spice up" the vanilla version of bees. Some of these datapacks implement a queen bee boss mob, another implements auto mining bees. He shows you how they work in-game, the mechanics of each pack, and what he likes about them. He even has a boss battle with a queen bee and several of its' companions. Bee sure the entire video to see what the buzz is about!

Featured Data Packs:
Queen Bees by TBC_Miles
A Beetter Update by Pigeon1H
Ore from Bees by ZyRail

FURRY FRIENDS
This week, we saw some super adorable animal and animal themed skins! This fox themed alex skin by Yeon is one of our favorites! We specifically like the colors Yeon chose, and the cute little ears. It gives us all of the fox feels!

Another one - actually two of our favorite skins
owo koala Minecraft SkinKᴏₙᴛₐ Minecraft Skin
this week are by ctrless. This koala skin dressed in yellow checkered pants and a shirt with a heart on it is so charming, we want to give it a hug! Their pig skin is dressed in similar attire but purple!

Lastly is this pastel fox skin made by Maxiematics. After a little investigating, we discovered that it's a fox with a froggo poncho.


TERRIFIC TUTORIAL
Interested in creating your own data pack but not sure where to start? Bertiecrafter is in the process of creating a series of tutorials called "Function Data Packs for Dummies". So far, there are 4 parts in the series.


Part 1: What are they and why would I create them?
Part 2: Who's JSON (and what's /tellraw?)
Part 3: Creating a new data pack and function
Part 4: Load, tick, uninstall and other functions


You can find them all in his collection, Data Pack Tutorial.

BEAUTIFUL BANNER
Did you notice our new Profile and Twitter banner?! It was made by RobotPantaloons! He used his Bare Bones texture pack which you can download here, if you like what you see!

He also has YouTube channel where you can find plenty of Minecraft Cinematics, Render timelapses and editing, and more!

One of his render timelapse videos is him creating the banner we spoke of above. Any one else find Timelapses mesmerizing?

TRENDING ON REDDIT
This week, we saw a few of out members' works trending on Reddit!

LardTom created a pack that makes Iron Golems Biome-Specific! The textures for Iron Golems are based on the textures that the Villagers have in different biomes. Can you identify which golem belongs to which biome?

The thread currently has 37,000 upvotes and 604 comments!


The second member, made a mob skin mashup! Beeghast by shaneh7646 went trending this week, posting this GIF showing the size difference between bee and beeghast. The thread currently has over 6,000 upvotes!

The reddit thread is filled with alternate name suggestions such as 'BHAST' and 'Ghees'. Would you beelieve that there are quite a few bee puns, too? Our favorite puns so far are:

"A beeg mistake" and "That's a beeast".

Bee sure to check out the thread for some entertaining commentary!




DAZZLING DRAGON
Feast your eyes on this beautiful beast! Master dragon creator, Roman_95 just published this work of art, Pearl Dragoness. We love the pretty pinks and swirling pattern on its' scales - a magnificent masterpiece, once again!



Want to see more? Check out this collection he put together, containing all of the dragons he's made!



FEATURED YOUTUBER
This weeks featured YouTuber is SeanBit! Their channel was established in 2015 and currently has over 80 videos!

You may have heard of SeanBits, as he has 11+ thousand subscribers! You'll find Minecraft timelapses, tutorials, and cinematics along with some Fortnite and speed art. He publishes videos on a regular basis, averaging about one per week!

His latest video is a timelapse of his most recent Minecraft project he posted to PMC this week, Beautiful Japanese Temple. The island, he states, took about 3.5 hours to make! In the timelapse, you can see how he implements features such as waterfalls, and intricate details like the moss on the temple. Truly an Impressive build!



COMBAT UPDATE
Did you hear? Minecraft just released a Combat Snapshot, dedicated to changes in combat mechanics. The most notable changes include making weapons weaker and removing the regeneration boost from food saturation.

Installation instructions:
  • Unpack the folder into your "versions" folder of your local Minecraft application data folder (see below if you are confused)
  • Create a new launch configuration in the launcher and select the "pending 1_15_combat-6" version
  • Start the game and the remaining files will be downloaded
  • Play in a new world! This version is not compatible with other snapshots!
You can follow the conversation around this, and previous versions, on Minecraft's official feedback site and reddit.







Have you tried the Combat Update?

(If yes, what do you think?!)
