OTHER HIGHLIGHTS




The "best" Mob Skin submitted this week includes three different Axolotl designs by three different members. First, we have a rather humanoid version of the axolotl in rare "buff" form. The small amphibian can usually be seen walking on all fours, but not this version. In fact, we're not even sure if we'd approach this one. Aspirin and WallE stayed true to the quadrupedal pals, using different mob skin models

TUTORIAL UPDATE
Bertiecrafter added the 10th installment in his Function Data Pack for Dummies series. This chapter discusses each of the different text files that weren't covered in previous chapters, and where to find the text files JSON structure.

This series of tutorials will teach you how to create your very own data packs, assuming you know absolutely nothing about commands. Data packs can contain a number of things, but only functions and tags will be covered in these posts. In every part, I assume you've read the previous parts.

The next tutorial is going to be an in-depth walkthrough visiting several of these JSON files.



You can see the table of contents and read a full overview here and access all of the tutorials in this collection.




MAGNIFICENT MACHINE
Gheppio is back with another self-replication creation! This machine is called the "Maze Solving Unit" or MSU for short and is a self-replicating pathfinder module that is capable of exploring and solving complex mazes. You can see it in action to the right. If expands and explores all paths, detect dead ends, retracts from dead ends, and stabilizes itself to form a continuous line, ultimately solving the maze!

Subsequent to the MSU release was the release of MazeMaker V 1.0, which allows you to put the MSU in action by creating and testing your very own maze! Download the map, open a map chest, and use brick blocks to draw the maze layout, then fill all the empty corridors with glass panels. Play with friends and solve each other's maze, or try speed-running with them!



OUTSTANDING ORGANICS
Gabersid submitted a couple of amazing organics this past week. They state in each submission that both were made a while ago, but are just now submitting them.

The Continent Whale was the first that caught our eye. We first saw it on Twitter and just HAD to hunt it down to feature it here. This smooth animation makes this build come to life, as the whale weaves gracefully above clouds.

Natures' second build submitted this week was a bit different from the Continent whale but no less impressive. FEAR features a mass of skulls a top of a city. Nature'sWrath was interviewed for this project by Minecraft!

RTX FLEX
RTX-powered ray tracing arrived this year for the Bedrock Edition Windows 10 platform, providing amazing graphical improvements through better lighting and shading creating realistic hard and soft shadows, reflections and illuminations. Provided you have the appropriate NVIDIA GeForce graphics card and Bedrock Window's 10, your Minecraft world will look insanely more detailed than ever before!

With the new GeForce RTX 30 Series GPU's released by NVIDIA in September 2020, kimandjax was given the opportunity to create THREE Minecraft maps for NVIDIA! Each of them highlights the striking illumination and power of the new RTX GPU's! They can all be seen below. Two of the three projects have downloads for both Bedrock and Java!

In addition to these three RTX maps, NicoRTX submitted a pack this week titled Anime Realistic Japanese PBR Textures! The pack is specifically for the use of RTX featuring textures that are meant to be used for anime, Japanese, and ray-tracing videos!

To show off their pack they also submitted a map that features a typical Japanese street. You can download the pack here, and the map here!
