PMCers! Happy weekend! We hope you're having a great start to your weekend, wherever you are in the world! This weekly we cover a few new cool community contests, a member who's taking on a mountainous the task for the month of October, a LIVE STEAMPUNK LESSON happening THIS Sunday, and so much more!



OFFICIAL EVENTS AND CONTESTS
It's apparent that Fall is inspirational across all artistic mediums! The Fall Festival has OVER 450 entries, and we couldn't be more excited! We've seen poems, short stories, digital art, skins, projects and more festive fall submissions! We've also been keeping an eye on profiles and have seen two distinct themes: Creepy Halloweenie and fall favorites (peep Shady_Warlock and LadyBear)! You have until October 31st to enter and remember, you can enter up to 5 Times!


OFFICIAL PROJECT CONTEST
UNDISCOVERED CIVILIZATIONS!





In case you missed it: we've collaborated with Barbarian to bring you a unique never-been-done-before official Project Contest, UNDISCOVERED CIVILIZATIONS!

We all have undiscovered talents and sometimes all it takes is a little inspiration to uncover something inside you with the power of creating entirely new UNDISCOVERED CIVILIZATIONS!!! Yes, YOU... have that power and WE, are here to spark your creative neurons. We hope you enjoy this nearly 2 MONTH long contest cause we're excited to see what the community can discover.

Barbarian has generated THREE, out-of-this-world terrains for you to choose from. You are required to download and build on one of these maps in order to enter this contest. Feel free to download all three before making your decision as they are all worth exploring.

IN ADDITION to providing 3 terrains for the contest, Barbarian also created an in-depth tutorial on How to Render with Chunky! Definitely worth a read!





COMMUNITY EVENTS AND CONTESTS
NEW!

Wildcard_Gamer is hosting a pallette skin contest with an extra twist! Not only do you have to use the 15 beautiful fall colors pictured to the right, but you have to make a skin that fits the theme Haunted.

OTHER HIGHLIGHTS
⛰️ A MOUNTAINOUS TASK

Whilst some members are participating in inktober and skintober, Evmanz is taking on the task of mountober! He's posted several amazing mountain terrains including Hexteria, a 3k x 3k multi biome map! After several months of learning world machine, they put their skills to the test! It's also their first multibiome map and is created in world machine! Be sure to check out their lovely terrain and follow their journey through October as they create more!




πŸ“ EDUCATIONAL BLOGS
Ryer posted his second blog in his series Architecture School. In case you missed his first Archeticure School Blog, the assignment was to make a form out of repetitive use of the same simple object.

In his second project, he was given several tasks where he has to work with lines. One such task was constructing models using bass wood. The construction had to imply a complete cube without defining it - an interesting and challenging undertaking.




CaraRose published a tutorial on Saved Toolbars! She states in the tutorial that Saved toolbars have many benefits including:
  • You can save some important blocks or mostly used. It can help you save your time searching them
  • You can save not-existed (in creative inventory) blocks there like command block or barrier etc
  • You can transfer your Saved Toolbars wherever you want with creative mode available
  • You can create templates of blocks you may planning to use in your next builds
  • You can save mc heads there and be able to take them for example to your single player map
  • You can save enchanted things there, some custom books, well, pretty much anything you want!
You can access Saved Toolbars in creative mode by pressing "E".



πŸ“Š DELIGHTFUL DATA
Knightsundere gathered data - A LOT of data - on the top 20 Skin Finalists of All time, per person placement history, and rankings based on them! They had been working on a personal research project and compiled this data up for themselves. The below spreadsheet shows the general from the extensive data collected. You can see the detailed statistics by viewing this Google Sheet.





FEATURED ON MINECRAFT.NET
Last week, Minecraft.net published a new article titled Best Community Skins: September. Among other, off-site creators, PMC members DragonsDungeon and Phosphor were featured with the skins shown below. Congrats on the feature guys!
