⭐OTHER HIGHLIGHTS




ART GALLERY🎨

Gealx3 updated their art blog this week. The blog contains colorful mosaics, sketches, photos, and digital paintings. Geal also recently updated their texture pack, Canvas, that has been updated over the past 7 years and reflects just how skilled they are in the digital art realm.


Lordslash2007 made the rocks you see above in Blender, taking them less than a day to create. A couple of weeks ago they shared another blog containing some beautiful 3D round brilliant gems, which took them a bit longer to create (several months). We can't wait to see more models from them!
Uknownymous updated their art blog which now includes what they say are their "four best ones". The colorful character above is named Liliam. You can see the rest here!
Berries is one of several creatures you'll find when you scroll through milksatan's wall posts! We love the funky, creative art style this member has.!

This purple pixel dragon's name is Grapes! Wackywow created grapes and shared them in a wall post. After scrolling through their wall posts, we found this pixel art of a robot alien 👽.




POETRY
Cardinal System released 2 submissions this week, both of which are beautifully written blogs. The first is a poem titled "Lonely Night", that tells the story in first-person of heartbreak and lonliness. The second poem, "The Epilogue", gives us more insight with a Preamble and some context after the poem which explains the poems origins. Be sure to check both of these poems out! You can read more of Cardinals blogs here.





FEATURED DATAPACKS
WORLD GEN 🌎
ShrimpSnail just added a new Data Pack to their portfolio - Shrimps Shores! With this data pack, you'll see a few more beach biomes including 2 pebble beaches, a pink sand beach, black sand beach, volcanic reef, 2 new archipegalos, and guardian's lair!
This next data pack isn't new, but was updated this week with a few new additions! The bracken pack by Brackenstrike adds 11 additional dimensions to the game as well as playable fantasy species, additional crafting recipes, customized mob spawning and more.

SCARECROWS 🎃
Scarecrows Banner
This Scarecrow data pack by JeffWooden comes with a few features! First, there are two ways add them; first by summoning and second by creating one. Whichever way you choose, you can change the scarecrows costume type. Different costume types will repulse different hostile mobs!
The8BitMonkey's Functional Scarecrows scares away pesky rabbits 🐇 and some skeletons in a 5x5 radius around the base of the scarecrow! This pack also adds 2 visible advancements and several hidden advancements as well as a scarecrow upgrade option!





PLAID PERFECTION
The changing of the season from summer to fall means an entirely different wardrobe for some of us! Chunky sweaters, leggings, and flannel shirts become a closet staple. Nothing says fall like a plaid-printed top whether it be a flannel, sweatshirt or scarf! We saw a few members use the flannel pattern as inspiration for their player skins this week. Here are a few of our favorite!

SPACE SUBMISSIONS 🪐
The weekly is typically organized by submission type, however, we're feeling rebellious 😈 We combined these submissions because they all have a common theme - Space!

This fighter ship is certainly a spectacle in space, and packs a punch! The G505-Energy Cannon on this bad boy shoots projectiles at a rate of 3800km/h! Created by Overlord_Aqua_2, the submission page includes all of the information you need to know about it including its engine size, module type, radar range and more! Check out this collection to see the entire fleet of Zyraitix fleet! 🚀

OwlsCubed second submission on PMC is this space station texture pack that looks rather sus 👀. The pack contains custom textures and mobs so you can create your very own space station or skeld!

Villager or 5 star space hotel? SolarSimonDM's Planetary Leisure center is "the hottest, snazziest, most prestigious 5-star hotel on this side of the observable universe!".

Meet Pip! Pip is a 32nd generation moon robot (also known as a 'mobo') created by BirbLover. Pip likes to keep busy by cleaning the moon and is a very intelligent bot.



AXOLOTL AQUARIUMS🌊

This tutorial by Deamon_Hunter teaches you how to create a cylindrical casa to keep your cute creatures in! Inside of the aquarium you'll find all of the necessities like dripleaf, sea pickles, kelp and seaweed that create a very natural habitat your axolotls will love! It's roomy, it's stylish, and it's everything your axolotl needs!
The style of this aquarium by Natsukai is a bit more modern and isn't just a house for your amphibian friends, but a house for you too! This structure uses stripped oak logs as the main material to give the exterior a clean aesthetic. With minimal landscaping, this houses' aquarium remains its most attractive feature.



TERRAIN DOWNLOADS⛰️

Chaice - 1k x 1k Custom Island Terrain (FREE DOWNLOAD) Minecraft Map & Project
This Mesa Desert map by Geet_Builds is 2k x 2k and has more than enough room for you to build a village or perhaps a theme park on! With several winding rivers, plentiful beaches and a forest on its west side, there's no shortage of unique biomes to explore!

Kman2925 submitted a 1k x 1k custom island terrain, and it's so beautiful that we would travel and vacation on it in real life! Ever wonder what it takes to create terrain like this? Kman included a timelapse of the process which is truly mesmerising! Check out more of their terrain here!


If you've ever wanted to explore Terrain master McMeddon's maps, he's made an alternative way for builders and content creators to get free access to requested maps! There are a few requirements you have to meet, so be sure to check out his blog post for more information!


This week's interview is with...
FishStacks! Fishstacks was recommended by several PMCers over on this thread. FishStacks has been a member of Planet Minecraft for a little over a year and remains a very active member in the community. They've given nearly 15,000 diamonds, made just over 4,300 wall posts, and has made several quality contributions to the community. It's almost hard to believe they've bee here for only a year based off of their activity! Here are a few of our favorite submissions from them, but be sure to check out all of their submissions because there are so many good ones!

Tell us how you chose your PMC name, FishStacks!

I choose my pmc name as sort of a pun on fishsticks and minecraft stacks, and also because i think pufferfish are incredibly funny creatures

What does your typical creative process look like?

My typical creative process is opening an editor (depending on what I'm making, so blockbench, the pmc skin editor, aseprite or paint.net,), sitting there staring at it, melting into an indistinguishable puddle, search social media for an hour, and then just start placing random colors. Not particularly helpful, but ey its honest.

Was there a defining moment when you knew that you had a passion for Minecraft-based content, or is the content you submit on the site just stem from a base passion (programming, pixel art, design, etc.)

Honestly I've liked making Minecraft content for a while now but didn't really post anything for years. I originally started making Minecraft skins on some mobile app that I've forgotten the name of.

What does your dream job look like? Would it be doing MC content full time or do you have other aspirations?

Honestly I'm not sure what my dream job would be yet, but I do eventually hope opening up commissions for Minecraft and pixel art content once I can organize my life a bit better.

Where did you learn pixel art? Skinning?

I said it earlier, but I started skinning in about 2016 or so. I got into pixel art itself in between 2018-2019 on this website called Piskel, which I would use pretty frequently.


What inspired you to create your own texture pack? Do you use it?

Honestly I got inspired to make my own pack just by the sight of seeing so many people making such cool packs, so I decided I wanted to do it myself. And yes, I do use my own pack, I know some artists can't stand using their own work in game sometimes, but I usually just end up changing stuff whenever I don't like it lol.

woods and other blocks


If you could add a mob to Minecraft, what would it be? Would it be passive or hostile?

Oooo this ones an interesting question, I have quite a few ideas. Honestly, I think a passive mystical creature for the overworld would be cool. One of the reasons I like striders so much is that you get a passive mob that has actual uses, which I think the overworld could use a few. We get parrots, pandas, foxes, which are all real animals and don't have much use (don't get me wrong, I love the additions, just wish they were a bit less just for looks). I think something for deserts or mesas would be cool, though I'm not sure what they would do yet.. might be time to make a new mob concept :)

Which submission of yours is your favorite?

Besides my texture pack StackPack, I think my favorite submission is my Warped Corpse skin. It was pretty fun to make and I'm really proud of the colors, and I've made multiple pixel arts of it. (I even used the colors from it for warped forests in my textute pack, lol)

Warped Corpse Minecraft Skin
Out of all of the contests you’ve participated in, which one has been your favorite?

I believe my favorite official contest was the biome swap mob contest. I'm pretty proud of my submission (I made piglins into bigfoot-like creatures), and for the most part there was a lot of creativity and cool concepts I saw.


You’ve hosted a few skin contests - are you planning on hosting more in the future?

Yes! I've been planning to host another of my own contests for a while, and hoping for some interesting inspiration for a Halloween contest (maybe its already out by the time this interview is out!). Been trying to think of an original twist for the contest first though.


Which PMC Pet is your favorite?

Either wibbit or bumbee, I love the looks of them and the little animations they have is adorab- OH WAIT I FORGOT SPECK. speck is my favorite pmc pet.


During our 10 year anniversary you entered our raffle and won a t-shirt signed by Cyprezz. Do you ever wear it? Is it as cool as you hoped it would be?

Yeah, I wear it pretty often, its really nice! Really cool shirt and also that fancy badge I got on my trophy case :)


Do you play any other video games?

Yes, I play a few different games besides Minecraft, only recently started playing more than like 2 games lol. I play Apex Legends, Splitgate, Doom Eternal, Roblox, and occasionally Halo and Smash Bros.


What other hobbies do you have?

My main hobby besides creating stuff that I post online is drawing, but I'm... not very good at it.


Favorite meme of all time?

Oh favorite meme, mmmm that's a hard choice. Very hard choice. I'm gonna say those edits of sad cats, they're pretty funny.


Anything you’d like to add?

i have one last piece of information:

one of my cats


One of your cats?! How many cats do you have and what are their names?!

I have 5 cats in total, their names are Beasus, Preston, Noah, Artemis, and Ramona, and We also have a bearded dragon named Crater and a fish named Echo! (Preston is the one pictured above)
