Hey everyone! Happy Sunday! This week be sure to get those pixels perfected on your Aztecs or Egyptians, as the deadline for the Aztecs and Egyptians skin contest is this Wednesday! We're also nearing the end of the month, so there are a lot of other community contests and events as well as the Lucky Block Event and Interior Decorators Contest ending! We're also covering some new contests that popped up this week, a couple of skins, some art and more!






OFFICIAL EVENTS AND CONTESTS




What's this?! It's our very first official data pack event on Planet Minecraft! In this event that we're hosting alongside Bertiecrafter, everyone gets a chance to contribute to a community Lucky Block data pack. This might be easier than you think; with the help of a framework and tutorial series created by Bertiecrafter

All you do is change a couple lines to get setup and then focus on making "something" happen when the lucky blocks are broken. Even if you feel unsure about your skill set, we encourage you to give it a go!

Deadline: July 5

There are THREE DAYS LEFT in the Aztecs and Egyptians skin contest!

Create a skin based off of two of the most fascinating ancient civilizations! Do a little research on Aztecs & Egyptians and let one or both of their cultures inspire the design of your Minecraft player skin.


Deadline: June 24

โญOTHER HIGHLIGHTS





AMAZING ART
Timothis_1213 created some digital Minecraft art this week and shared it in a wall post! The art piece features Minecraft people silhouettes with a gorgeous landscape in the background. We're hoping to see more of their work!
TRENDING ON REDDIT

Kobinator's data pack, potion totems went trending on reddit this week! The thread currently has OVER 59,000 upvotes and over 600 comments!


The pack adds hollow totems which you can fill with various potion effects that trigger when you need them most. The totems are unlimited use but you must replace the potion every time they are used up!

You can download the pack here!


SUPER SKINS
There were several amazing skin submissions this week, 3,846 to be exact!

One of our favorites was autumnistic's skin, shooting stars, which is actually an entry or csea's 20 Sub Contest! We love the detail of the star and moon reflection in the space helmet, and the lofty space boots!

We also enjoyed Incandescence's "today a karen road raged at me" skin, which features a summery skin with a sunflower on it's overalls. The submission also contains a story about a road rage incident, but we won't spoil it for you. Head on over and read it for yourself!

Last but not lease, we really enjoyed Yeon's skin. We're not only huge fans of the color palette, but also love the cute pokemon face it features on the hoddie. Such an adorable skin!

MANY MODS!
Ever wonder what other people are using for mods and packs with their Minecraft?

Over on the blog section this week, strxberricake shared their Minecraft version, texture pack, mob packs they've installed as well as several mods including:

OptiForge
Backpacked
XL food mod
Decorative Blocks
Little Delicacies
Biomes O' Plenty
Mr. Crayfish's Furniture Mod
....and more!



We're curious to know if anyone else uses this many mods for their world.

This week's poll question is inspired by strxberricake's blog post!
