Happy Sunday! We have TWO new official contests and one new official event this month, one with UPGRADED prizes! We've partnered with a couple of PMC members this month to bring fresh and unique themes. Woop woop! In addition, there are a handful new community contests and events, several that are ending soon, some community content including a member who had a couple of submissions trend on reddit this week. We've also got a tutorial and adventure map and some adorable animal skins!




OFFICIAL EVENTS AND CONTESTS




NEW!



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

Visit the forum thread here!
In this month's player skin contest, Aztecs and Egyptians, your goal is to 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.

Please make use of the page description to explain the background of your skin and how it relates to one of the civilizations.

Deadline: June 24

AN AMAZING ADVENTURE
Break up the mundane cycle of mining, building and farming, and absorb yourself into something different, even if it's just for a few minutes with this adventure map by SpektrumKoylu ! Kaysi is a minigame based adventure map that contains endless adventures, with countless hours of entertainment!

Some of the adventures you'll encounter include a labyrinth, parkour,

Your decisions will determine the end of the story. Download the map here and start your journey!

TREE TUTORIAL
LimeeFox released another tree tutorial, this time on Spruce Trees!

the tutorial states:

"Trees are often one of the most important aspects of terrain or a build. It can totally change the looks and the feels of a build, so better it be a good tree, and not a bad one."


You can check out his How to build a Birch Tree Tutorial here. With these two tutorials you'll be well on your way to creating your own coniferous forest!


TRENDING ON REDDIT
This turtle by Boscawinks is a bit deceiving; especially if you watch the short clip on the reddit thread (we encourage you to do so). This turtle is actually a GIGANTIC 1:1 scale model of the turtle mob! In addition, Since the block palette is limited, the statue didn't look exactly like the turtle mob. To remedy this, Boscawinks created a skin for the turtle mob using the available block palette so the statue looks a lot more like their in game skin.
Block Palette Turtle Minecraft Skin

The reddit thread has over 70,000 upvotes and 800 comments!
In addition to their turtle statue, their rainbow beacon beam also went trending on reddit! The rainbow beacon is a small toggleable beacon circle that creates a 48 color rainbow gradient and due to its' popularity on reddit, Boscawinks made a tutorial on how to create your very own!

The reddit thread currently has over 22,000 upvotes and over 300 comments!

A big congratulations on these milestones!!



Inspired by the sock city map contest, this weeks poll question is:

go to .minecraft root folder there is folder named "saves" this folder is the place where maps and save files stored
and then extract zip or rar of the map that you downloaded and drag extracted map folder in to save folder

I prefer solid coloured socks with a pattern on the top.
Because they look fancy as fish.
