WATCH LIST
The blog section is FILLED with simple, easy to follow tutorials; whether you're looking for a simple small home or some lawn accents for your front yard.
Timelapse | How to Build a Cottage House Minecraft BlogHow to build a Cottage House by Natsukai is just 1 of 4 tutorials they submitted this week - this particular tutorial shows you a timelapse process of the cottage house for your survival to be more cozy! Follow along with the video and pause when needed. If you'd rather have a small modern home, they created a tutorial in similar format!
Survival Starter House Minecraft Blog
What we really liked in Deamon_Hunter's Survival Starter House tutorial is that they show you a list and quantity of materials you'll need to build this home. So convenient! This home features 2 stories and even a small garden. Looking for something more complex? Check out their other tutorial from this week,The Ultimate Underground Survival Base!
Minecraft | Pond Idea | How To Build A Pond Tutorial Minecraft Blog
Now that you've constructed your humble abode, why not add a little landscaping? Mr Potato teaches you how to build a small pond in their latest blog tutorial. Stock it with your favorite fish, add some under-water decor such as coral and sea cucumbers and you've got yourself one serene scene to wake up to every morning!




A RESOURCE PACK TO RAVE ABOUT

Long-time member Valerii Kim is back with another epic resource pack they released this week, Legendary! This pack is a medieval-fantasy pack that stays close to vanilla style, but gives you a different experience with more than 100 custom mobs and models, entire retexture of all blocks, custom font and GUI and more.

Their first pack, SpiralCraft was submitted 10 years ago! Another one of our favorite packs from them is Tales of Jobutara Kingdom, a fun and vibrant and colorful pack that's entirely different from what you're used to - in only the BEST of ways. ๐ŸŒˆ




Tales of Jobutara Kingdoms


CAPTURED SOULS


Capture the souls of mobs and harness their special powers with this data pack by YokaiS! You must first obtain a soul wand which is the tool you'll need to capture souls. When you can get several souls, you'll have the ability to create a being that is fully made of them.

What kind of powers will you have? That depends on which mob soul you've captured. A soul hound, for instance, has a fast speed and stronger attack damage. If you're able to craft a soul crown, you'll have 20 seconds of fire resistance whenever you find yourself in fire or lava.



๐ŸŒ† MASSIVE MEGACITY

QuanticsBuild has made several impressive builds, and their latest, Nova Celes City is no exception. This city is divided into 3 sectors; the first sector contains a hydraulic dam. The second is a sector made up of 8 different neighborhoods with various achitectural styles including chinatown, biohazard, video games, industrial, party and more. The third and final sector is the center of the city names Nova Celes and is accessible by bridges. A fantastic complex build, and it's currently free to download!
