In this week's weekly, we cover the new official contests launched this week as well as a few new community skin contests. We also feature and alien like skin with a great description, art, a super cool data pack, a texture pack that retextures one of the most valuable blocks in Minecraft, an amazing organic and more!


The official project contest for this month is live! We're hosting Buccaneer Bay Build Contest alongside Aderlyon build team. In this contest, you can Download the optional starter island and create a pirate themed entry. The island is optional. You could create an elaborate treasure hunt, a pirate ship battle scene, skull cove with sunken ships, active or abandoned pirate village, organic pirate art... You are free to let the theme inspire you.

Deadline: March 29

Welcome to the community data pack event where participants use a custom framework designed by Bertiecrafterto implement Minecraft, but ??? scenarios. The scenario is up to you, the data pack creator. At the end of the event, all valid entries will be combined into a special collaborative data pack that implements them all in a unique way and promoted on the official PMC account. Our last data pack event resulted in a Lucky Block collaboration data pack with 221 implementations! We're looking forward to seeing how far the data pack community has developed since then.

Deadline: April 12

This week we also launched the new official player skin contest, Dark Depths! Contest theme by FishStacks voted for by the community in this poll.
Your goal is to make a Minecraft skin that would fit or live in the dark depths of the ocean. Eyeless creatures, bio-luminescent fish or people who've adapted to the dark, crushing depths of the sea.

This creepy creature titled Orion Cortexian was created by SolarSimonDM. Using the enderman mob model, the alien-like creature features some serious details including what appears to be a mollusk-like head, long spiral arms that might be considered tentacles, and a round, short torso.

The description states:

"In the uncharted depths of the Krogon Sector, over seven quadrillion alien species thrive and evolve constantly to survive and overcome all others, with the creatures possessing the "Orion" genus being one of the most noteworthy. Even though the Cortexians didn't evolve with beastly teeth and a towering scale like the Orion Leviathans, they show some promising cognitive abilities that exceed the ones of the homo-sapiens. What they lack in brute strength and force, they make up for with the ability to see into the near future, making them a dangerous foe to the other forms of life in the universe."

Simon did an excellent job with the creepiness and mysteriousness of this HD Skin! Be sure to check out all of SolarSimon's submissions for more magnificent mobs and more.

We spotted several doodles and digital art in the wall post section this week! Check out some of our favorites below:

One of the top data packs this week was Ranbeau's Undersea Villages data pack that adds glass-domes villages on the floor of deep oceans. Take a trip to the ocean to visit these villages and their passive mob inhabitants. Will you take over and claim one of these undersea villages as your own or will it be a

This gorgeous organic was built by Lmaoki for a "Collabtition". Everything was sculpted in-game in Minecraft except for the skull. The skull was the provided asset in the competition and participants were required to use it. Taking it a step further, Lmaoki sculpted on top of it to create a cohesive piece of art. We wish them the best of luck in the contest!

xalixilax gave the vanilla diamond a seriously shiney makeover with their pack xali's Enhanced Diamond texture pack. Using colors that are closer to the IRL diamond these new diamonds sparkly even in the darkest of days.

Xali also retextured diamond items, blocks and armor to give them a more unique look. We love how the weapons look with this pack!

If you like this, Xali has several more popular packs including Enchanted Books, which changes the look of the books depending on their enchantment!
There is no official Interview this week, however, there were a few member ones submitted to the blog section this week!

Ender Dragon: Why? Well, it would still be hostile, but if you held out courous fruit, it would land slowly and prowl around you, so you could tame it.

I picked ravager, because it has a saddle on its back to ride, and unlike horses, you could go into battle with them.

First, regarding this edition of the PMC News: NO WAY could this have been easy to write as there is just so much going on and so many cool things being submitted here lately. Having said as much...that's a very good problem to have! :D

Secondly, regarding the hostile mob-as-pet: I vcoted Ghast, as I adore their immense size, pouty attitude, and broad-ranging vocals. :D
