Run to the hills! Run for your lives!
Welcome to the world of Iron Maiden ~ are you prepared for the task ahead?
  • Welcome to the Iron Maiden

    Iron Maiden has arrived on Planet Minecraft, and they’re hosting a Jam for Iron Maiden-themed stuff, so start brainstorming ideas if you wanna enter something!

    If you need inspiration for what to make, here’s the blog I published the night before the Jam began. If you need more inspiration, read the widget below. Also read what to include in the entry’s description.

    The prize for participating in this event is a trophy in the likeness of the iconic Battlefield Trooper Eddie, designed by ZappyGru.

    Gru also designed the banner, featuring Eternity Eddie, a combination of the Cyborg, Mummy, Pharaoh, Battlefield Trooper, and Holy Smoke versions of him.

    Also, as of 10:45 PM ET on Wednesday, December 7th, 2022, I have one new rule for entries:

    No recreations of this unholy image.

  • Ideas

    As I said above, if you need any ideas, visit the blog post.

    Here are some other ideas:
    MapsSkinsMob SkinsTexture PacksBlogs
    An art map based on one of the album covers (like this one by Parkway Drive)An Eddie skin, obviously!A skeleton reskin in the form of EddieAn Iron Maiden-themed texture pack (Maybe the tree and lantern from Fear of the Dark or the pistols from Somewhere in Time?)A story about Eddie
    An Iron Maiden theme parkA skin of one of the band membersReskin a mob to look like a character from the game or an album cover (like a wolf reskin as a Wickerdog or a villager/illager reskin as one of the Wicker Man cultists)An Iron Maiden-themed texture pack that changes the HUD (like changing the heart texture to look like the sacrificial heart from The Book of Souls)Eddie the Head or Iron Maiden artwork
    An Iron Maiden horror mapA character from one of the songs, album covers, or music videos, like the Ancient Mariner or the Storm-Herald

    Eddie the Head or Iron Maiden fanart
    An Iron Maiden minigameA new version of Eddie you created (like a delivery man)

    An Eddie the Head or Iron Maiden-themed Blockbench model
    An Iron Maiden adventure mapA skin overlay for one of Eddie's many costumes (like his redcoat outfit or samurai armor) or a skin overlay of a piece of Iron Maiden merchandise

  • What the description of an entry should include

    - The first two verses of the song it's based on:
    For example, if I made a Paschendale Eddie skin, the description would include this:
    In a foreign field he lay
    Lonely soldier, unknown grave
    On his dying words he prays
    Tell the world of Paschendale

    Relive all that he's been through
    Last communion of his soul
    Rust your bullets with his tears
    Let me tell you 'bout his years

    If the album doesn't have a song of the same name in it, like Piece of Mind or A Matter of Life and Death, you don't have to put lyrics. If there's multiple albums/songs that inspired the entry, just name them.

    - The cover of the album or single it's based on:
    For example, Aspirin60's "A Matter of Life and Death" entry includes the album cover for A Matter of Life and Death

      Just wanted to post some screen shots of the pack that I will be posting soon. I couldn't narrow down a fav album or even song. I love them all for different reasons. So instead of focusing on one album I decided to go with the idea of a Maiden live show. They've always been known for the epic shows, theatrics and arena rumbling live performances. So with a lot of work, i've changed a bunch of textures and blocks into items to create an Iron Maiden concert experience. The GUI has been changed, certain in game items have been changed such as music disc changed to maiden album covers with each music disc song changed to a song from that album cover/single. I have also changed some of the cooked food items to fit the theme of a concert food vendor. Other items have been changed to concert t shirts, composter has been changed to a garbage barrel. The sky has been made and themed to the Brave New World album art that features Eddie in the clouds. When it is posted I will have a full list of all of the changes that i implemented to make this a thing.

      I I'm Minecraft sculptor who's also into Iron Maiden. Just wanna know if this is something I can be a part of. Please check out my work submitter here on PMC to see if it's a good fit. Also, work takes up most of my time at the moment, so won't have a lot of time build and even communicate, save for my days off.

      A build of Tree Spirit Eddie sounds cool. I'm debating whether one of my entries should be the cathedral from Legacy of the Beast 2018.

      Another suggestion: Wicker Man Eddie (but I don't know what that'd be built out of)

      Ok. Just joined. Gonna build an Eddie head on the weekend. Not quite sure yet how make the rest of the build though... I'm thinking an Eddie tree from Fear of the Dark or samurai Eddie.

      This is definitely something you can join, if you can of course. If you're unable to do it, don't worry about it because I'll probably do another Iron Maiden jam in the future.
