NEW FEATURES

A new built-in shader

A built-in lightweight shader was added to the update. This shader makes the water wave, and look more realistic than that of its PC and console counterparts. Some shades, and lighting effects were also added to improve its overall graphics. This update is a very huge step for Minecraft Pocket Edition.

Gold Ore on Mesa

With the update, gold ore can now be found on the new mesa biome.

Minecraft 1.8 Fences

The new fence and fence gate variations that were introduced on Minecraft PC version 1.8, are now also available on your PC. This includes one fence and fence gate type for each wood variation. (i.e birch fence, jungle wood fence gate)

Darker Swamp

Swamp biome and swamp water is now darker and murkier looking than before.

Sun and Day-Cycle

Day and Night cycle can now be observed in creative mode. At the same time, the sun visuals are now bigger and brighter.

Brightness Toggle
In-game brightness can now be toggled in the options

Water Force

Water can now push things with more force. Water currents are now stronger.

Pocket Edition Exclusives

These are the things added that can’t be found on other Minecraft versions, and thus exclusive only for Minecraft Pocket Edition: Giant Mushrooms in Swamp biome, extra particles for sand and gravel, and surface mineshafts in mesa biome.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE NEXT MAJOR UPDATE

Tweaked Algorithm = Faster performance

A new algorithm had been finished and it should be implemented on the next update or major update. This algorithm will, at the end, improve performance to all devices – including PC. This new algorithm is called “The Advanced Cave Culling Algorithm™”

Big features are promised to be added on the next major update. Specifics are still unknown at this time.

Ye Gamol Chattels is more commonly called the Middle Age mod, as it adds a whole lot of content based on the middle ages.

Created by Ivorius, this mod adds a myriad of decorative and functional objects that enhances gameplay and promotes immersion.

Each objects added are well thought off and well designed. You can see that the mod author placed a lot of time in creating this wonderful mod.

 

Ye Gamol Chattels

 

In this mod you will find Tiki torches, treasure piles, weapon racks, three types of gongs, five types of pedestals, a loot chest, two types of shelves, a wardrobe, small and large banners, and small and large flags of various colors.

But that’s not all, this mod also features a workshop mechanics emphasizing the era of blacksmith of tinkerers. Thus, it adds a functional grindstone that repairs items, and a table press and a saw bench to create high quality wood.

Small workshop items such as sandpapers, chisels and hammers will also exist and they are all functional. Point and carving chisels will allow you to sculpt stone and wood -based blocks in order to create your own design and statue – like a true artisan!

 

flax

 

A long with that, flax will also spawn around the world to be farmed, collected, and crafted into flax fiber.

Unlike Minecraft 1.8, this mod’s banners cannot be decorated and modified, but it does feature a more sleek look than that of 1.8.

Items like drawers, pedestals, and loot chests all functions as they should (items can be placed inside them), and some even features cool effects.

 

2014-11-22_20.57.40

 

With this mod installed, you can create a whole new level of immersion in game. From the nicer wardrobes to in depth workshop. However, this mod lacks one crucial thing… having an in-game guide. Fortunately you have the Ye Gamol Chattels wiki to look up whenever you encounter a head scratcher.

MojoKraft is a high definition resource pack aimed in fantasy and realism.

MojoKraft features high resolution textures of up to 512x. The resource pack is centered in reality and a glimpse of fantasy.

The textures are vibrant and light, and most items are very colorful – making Minecraft look and feel a little jollier than normal.

Minecraft’s 1.8 is fully supported and thus it features fantastic new door textures and creepy mob textures.

The resource pack also features the new blocks and items, gates, prismarine, red sandstone, diorite, sponge, and many more that have been changed and added in the last Minecraft update.

With this resource pack, the ocean temple will look like the lost city of Atlantis with its sweet looking, yet rustic blocks, and beautiful underwater lanterns.

 

In addition, the guardian mobs look very eerie due to its one eye popping out, and the elder guardian is one giant ball of creepyness.

The armor set is outstandingly well-detailed. The diamond and iron armor is based on a heavy plate armor set, the gold armor seems like a decorated king’s armor, the chain armor features a chain coif, and the leather armor is based on medieval leather jerkin.

Flowers and other flora are highly detailed as well. And there is a texture add on that turns birch tree into a cherry blossom. This resource pack also changes the look of double slabs compared to their whole block counterparts.

Due to the high definition nature of this pack, MCpatcher is required to use it. High resolution textures does make minecraft not-like minecraft (it is as if you are playing a whole new game), but it does take its toll on your frame rate. Expect a high FPS drop when using the 512 x resolution.

Fortunately the resource pack does come in many resolutions, including a 64x that does not eat too much of the game’s frame rate.

This week’s seed is jaw-droppingly amazing that it looks like something that came out of a fantasy world.

The Minecraft 1.8 Seed is:

-969535336

This seed will spawn you in the middle of a Savannah M biome at only a few blocks below the cloud line. The Savannah M biome is both massive and at a very high altitude.

The mountain structures and terrain are terrifyingly beautiful. The mountain is surrounded mostly by water and some parts continue to the main land.

Some canopies are too huge that hostile mobs spawn all over it. There are plenty of dangerous areas to fall into.

2014-11-20_17.50.18 2014-11-20_17.50.39  2014-11-20_17.52.01  2014-11-20_17.52.31

The mountain is also covered with lots of waterfalls – some epic looking, that goes from the very top to all the way down the ocean.

2014-11-20_17.57.542014-11-20_17.52.502014-11-20_17.51.502014-11-20_17.52.14

There are also some hidden entrances towards enclosed areas with lava falls and water falls. Some caves go around the mountain, while others can go deeper under the ground.

The highest peak of the mountain is right in front of the spawn, and it features a scenic almost-skyblock savannah experience at the top.

 As if the Savannah are not scenic enough, these trees tend to grow on places that perfectly fits it.

Outside the area of the spawn is mostly water, but some parts are interesting as well. There are plenty of mountains that go down to sea level and straight up to the cloud level, there are plenty of beaches and deserts, and much more. Plain biomes is far away from the spawn point, making normal life a bit difficult.

Survival-wise, this seed is hard to survive with, especially if you are  bad at mountain climbing, as most trees are on top of those big chunk of rocks.

Due to the size of the seed and Minecraft 1.8’s chunk rendering bug, I haven’t been able to explore much.  But based on what I’ve seen, this is one epic seed that looks like a mild version of the experimental extreme seed generation.

If you have a similar seed or found something interesting on this one, let us know in the comments.

Villager’s Nose is a joke mod created by StarSheep. This mod allows players to cut those small wobbly things that hang on the face of the villagers… a.k.a their noses.

To cut a villager’s nose, all you need to do is craft a shear, find a villager, and right-click the villager’s face with a shear.

 

villager's nose mod (5)

 

The nose will then get removed from its face and will be dropped in the ground for you to pick. A villager without a nose actually looks better than those that still have them, so them a favor and snip them all.

 

villager's nose mod (6)

 

Unfortunately, with time, the nose will grow back magically. But you can use that magical growth to your advantage.

 

villager's nose mod (3)

 

 

Till the grass or dirt with hoe, and plant the villager’s nose on it to experience the magic.

 

villager's nose mod (4)

 

A very tiny villager will them spawn in the farm land and will eventually grow with time. Once fully matured, this villager plant will then start to walk and become your regular villager… and you can cut his nose too.

So what’s the use of these noses to you? Well you can equip them yourself of course! By placing a villager’s nose to your helmet equipment slot, you will be equipping yourself with one of the most gross and helpful helmet ever.

By equipping yourself with a villager’s nose you will gain two things: A big nose, and the ability to smell emerald ores. When an emerald ore is nearby, your nose will start to wobble and you will start making the villager’s ‘hrmmm’ sound.

But wait, there is more. By following the recipe below, you will craft the most mysterious and surprising item found in Minecraft! Equip it and a lifetime of partying will surely follow.

How to install Villager’s Nose Mod for Minecraft 1.7.10

 

  1. Download and install Minecraft Forge mod loader

  2. Download the latest version of Villager’s Nose Mod.

  3. Hold Windows key and press R to open the Run… dialog, or go to Start > Run.
