We hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! This week's weekly highlights some official contests that have deadlines approaching. We reached a HUGE milestone this week as well. We also feature a couple of skins, some impressive supersized mob statues, a data pack, a sssssuper awesome build, and interview 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

You have just under 1 week left to work on your entry for the 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 civilization 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've teamed up with Gheppio to bring you an exciting and unique contest, Maze Making Contest, powered by his latest brilliant Minecraft machine...Maze Maker Deluxe!
MazeMaker 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

One of our favorite skins this week was this HD robot skin by SolarSimonDM. The mechanical masterpiece may look familiar to you, especially if you've ever played Ratchet & Clank! The submission states:

"It took Ratchet almost 19 years to finally upgrade Clank to a more chrome-based alloy. Hey, better late than never.

"SolarSimon included just about every detail of this quirky bot! He also made a Ratchet skin this week which can be seen here.

Has anyone else been enjoying the Bernie Sanders' memes this week?

Havingfun_ISKEY took it to the next level, creating a Minecraft skin based on the infamous photo of Bernie at the Inauguration that happened this week. This skin is titled "This Could've Been An E-Mail" is complete with gloves that were made in his home state of Vermont, a green Gore-tex Parka, and the appropriate medical mask, this skin is prepared for the coldest of winters (and inauguration)!

For the past couple of weeks, Boscawinks has been creating MASSIVE statues (1:2 Scale) of various mobs including the Iron Golem, the Wandering Trader and Phantom. This week, he created all four variants of the Llama Mob as well as the various assets such as the different carpet decorations, sets of chests, and the trader llama decorations for a total of 144 possible combinations! Bosca included all of the combinations pre-assembled in a single Minecraft world for you to pick and chose (see photo below)

He has a total of 10 statues made, all of which you can see in this collection!

One of the top data packs this week is by GoldenGizzmo. Their pack "Gizzmo Mobs" adds 12 new mobs, 13 new items and new loot tables. The submission states:

"This is a datapack that aims to add more mob-based content to the game while still keeping with the feel of Minecraft, as if these mob could fit in as just an update you've missed."

With this pack, you can create several variations of Syrup that all have a different effect, Hostile Honey, jelly and more with the items that the new mobs drop. Our favorite mob in this pack is the Cave Bear!

Interesting fact - Gizzmo has been a member of PMC since 2012 and this is their first ever submission!
How colorfully cool is this organic by SpruceVMC?! Medusa is a submission for a contest being hosted on a Server. The textures, colors, and detail are impeccable! This build is full of life, it's almost as if you can hear the snakes hissing.

We encourage you to click here and scroll through the submission photos; some are up close so you can see all of the details. They've also included some progression photos which are equally interesting to see!
A new snapshot came out this week that included the new mob Glow Squid! In case you missed it, a couple of our members created review blogs highlighting the major additions! Hipercreative blog particularly highlights the Glow Squid and Glow lichen - what they do, what you can do with each of them and more!

If you prefer snapshot reviews in video form, be sure to check out Shireen's Snapshot video here. She dives deep in the ocean to show you squid and crawls in the caves to show how you can use glow lichen as your light source!


This week's interview is with....

Did the Glow Squid meet your expectations?!

I originally thought the glow squid would be useless, but at least it has some use. I would prefer one of the other mobs though.

The glowing squid is just a squid, but with lights, it cannot be carried into the caves, only its body is glowing and not around it.

SUMMARY: a squid with lights is just that, it doesn't do much of a thing

The incorrect spelling of "Bernie Sanders" by improperly including an apostrophe in his last name is somewhat disrespectful.

In the article, there is a reference to "Bernie Sander's memes", like they're the memes of Bernie Sander. Either disrespect has been given to Bernie Sanders intentionally by misspelling his name, or disrespect has been given him accidentally by failing at English grammar.

The phrase "Bernie Sanders' memes" is correct and affords the respect we all deserve. Please correct this error.
