Happy September, PMCer's! Who's looking forward to cooler weather and the next few months of festivities? We're in the process of planning a few fun things behind the scenes, and we're eager for what's to come. For now, be sure to check out the latest Mob Skin Contest that was launched just yesterday as well as some new unofficial contests/events your fellow friends are hosting. We've also got a member who's working on a really cool pack, a build inspired by the winding down of summer, a massive map that went trending on reddit, an INTERVIEW and more! We hope you enjoy reading, and hope you have a great weekend!

⭐OTHER HIGHLIGHTS





PIXEL PERFECTION
Nitgo has been hard at work on their pixel-tree texture pack! They released a couple of updates this week - one in a video showcasing some the block textures and features. Nitgo also added new fonts, redesigned all logs, redrew all mob effects and also changed particle effects!

This pack is SO COOL and we're looking forward to its' full release. It's estimated end date is in 4 to 7 weeks.
A FINE FAIRYTALE
Who else feels like summer went by really fast? CaraRose used the season's closure as inspiration for her most recent beautiful build, Bees Fairytale.

The project states:

"Saying goodbye to Summer by building small cozy place for bees.
Huge green leafy tree is a centerpiece of this fairytale. Small piece of sea is full of tropical fishes and gives magic energy to the tree to feed bee nest. Next to the mountains there is small magic temple for fairies and probably for lost souls to find a hope and make a wish on the magic bridge."



TRENDING ON REDDIT
This week, Geet_Builds submitted their second map on Planet Minecraft and it is MASSIVE. At a size of 10k x 10k, this map contains just about 100 unique biomes and is vanilla/survival friendly! The map also contains several connecting rivers so you can travel the terrain by boat, volcanoes, several islands and forests and more!

Our favorite biome on this map is the badlands/canyons, pictured below. We love how detailed this map is. Just look at those layers of sediment in the canyons!

The reddit thread currently has over 3,000 upvotes!







SUBSCRIBER SKIN REMAKE
In celebration of their 800 subscriber milestone, cheyko decided to remake their first skin ever! They state in their submission that they did this one specifically "just as a little reminder to myself that you have to start from somewhere". They also made an HD version of the skin, which is pictured way right! Congratulations on your milestone, and excellent work with your re-make!

FEATURED ART
Several of you post art throughout the week; we try to keep an eye on those who post their artwork in wall posts as opposed to their art blog because some of these are too good to not be featured in the weekly!

Yes! Interviews as a weekly staple of the newsletter is a great idea.
Hope to see different interviews questions that cater to the specific members being featured for future interviews, that is sure to spice up the interview segment.
