Pretend you're living in the arctic year round in your world with this pack by Futureazoo! updated this week, this pack keeps the default style of Minecraft but gives your world a chilly vibe by replacing the grass with snow, and adding icy details and a winter-themed GUI.

Optifine is strongly recommended!

TERRIFIC TERRAIN
We saw some lovely terrain submissions this week!

After taking an extended break from terraforming, jetley created a 2k x 2k survival friendly Island map using WorldPainter. They not only published this map on PMC, but reddit as well and received over 5,000 upvotes!

Jungle River Valley terrain crafted by Evmanz is a result of wanting to work on a project involving rivers. We think they've done an excellent job with winding the rivers and streams between mountain ridges and trees.

DeltaResearch's snowy mountain range terrain is giving us all of the winter feels. Titled "Strata MK. II", it is said that the mountain range has been eroded away with centuries of snow and wind and its' supposed "terracing to be the claw marks of some ancient being.










A CITY IN SECONDS
Gheppio created this timelapse gif of his most recent project,The PillarHex District. This project uses his infamous self-replicating technology which we covered in great length in our interview with him last month.

Though the city was created automatically, there were several steps carried through over the course of 7 days to create this colony. Every house and tower has stairs and furniture among other intricate details and elements.





RENDER REQUESTS
MCMineTube
is accepting render requests until the 1st of December! If you'd like to get a minecraft lightroom render similar to the one on the left, just private message them or reply to their thread with your MC skin (It's recommended to upload url of MC skin image) or your Minecraft Username. Make sure that your Minecraft skin must be 1.8 and above (64x64) and in PNG format!



MINECRAFT NEWS
MINECRAFT 1.15 PRERELEASE 3
There's just over a week left until 1.15! The third pre-release was published this week. The changes this time were:
  • Tweaked chunk loading and rendering performance further
  • Made text colors on signs match how they looked in previous versions
  • Made sure foxes are not players
  • Fixed bugs
To install the pre-release, open up the Minecraft Launcher and enable snapshots in the "Installations" tab.

You can find the complete list of bug fixes by clicking here.




POLL RESULTS
Last week we asked you if you were most excited for Minecraft Earth, Minecraft Dungeons, or Minecraft 1.15. Over half replied with Minecraft 1.15, with Minecraft Dungeons coming in second.










If you could master ONE skill, and not know any others, which would you choose?

I think terraforming and building are too inseparable to have as distinct options. Just like presentation is an important part of a chef's job, landscaping is an important part of a builder's job.

I'd choose Redstone but if it was a new skill to learn, definitely terraforming.

Thank you very much PMC for mentioning my latest project, now a finalist for the Unknown Civilization contest!
I'm planning a future integration with Infinity City (as also hinted in the project's description...)
I would like also to give an "empty" version of the world were people can automatically create their personal instance of the PillarHex District, an extra given together with the normal map, but I'll do this after the contest is concluded ;-)
