Christmas is coming, and the best way to celebrate it in Minecraft is to use a Christmas-based resource pack! and XmasBDCraft is the best there is.

 

2014-11-28_14.53.16

 

XmasBDCraft is the Christmas version of the famous Sphax BDCraft resource pack. This jolly version features snowy grass blocks, candy cane birch trees and sugar cane, mobs wearing santa hats, and so much more.

 

2014-11-28_14.52.07

 

Updated to 1.8, this version features a Christmas retexture of the new doors, and BDCraft retexture of the other things added on version 1.8.

Game screen and HUD is also changed to a more jolly textures and fonts.

Unlike other straightforward resource pack, this one features a lot of hidden goodies. For example, you will find a bunch of gift-retextured items like chests, enderchests, and a bunch of others that I can’t figure out what they were. TNT is also retextured as a black gift and paintings were all changed to Christmas themed – even the default Steve.

What makes this resource pack special is some stained clay stairs are textured into gifts that when used would create something unexpected. One “gift” will place toys, bears, candies, action figures, and other presents suitable for a kid. On the other hand, one “gift” will place chairs, tables, working laptops, working TVs, and a bunch of others that will appear depending on how you place it.

Some small details such as decorated saplings and extra Christmas-y particles are also quite noticeable to improve the Christmas vibe and feel.

Minecraft Pocket Edition had just updated to version 0.10, and this means new batch of awesome seeds!

This week, we’re gonna feature not one, not two, but three seeds for MCPE 0.10x alpha build 1.

 

Seed:

Sky fly fry

This seed features a worm-like overhanging mountain that looks very unique. The mountain itself looks like a petrified Kraken from the Greek mythology. Survival-wise the seed has some scattered oak trees near the spawn and there are plenty of ore inside the strange mountain.

 

seed 1

 

The best part of this seed is its building potential. Creating a castle-like or a mansion structure on top of the strange mountain creates a feeling of a fantasy-like adventure. I recommend this seed to be played in creative mode.

seed 2

Seed:

12345

Yep, who would have thought that this seed would turn out amazing? This seed features a beautiful terrain and world generation that features minecraft without the craziness.

seed 4

Right on the spawn you will find a huge lake, a stunning flower field, and a flat-top mountain surrounding the edges of the lake – the seed is just magnificent. Around the big mountain is a river and a forest right across it that reminds me of Spring.

seed3

Overall, I recommend this seed to survival players, to the girls who love flowers, and to those who simply wish to enjoy a peaceful life with a beautiful scenery.

Seed:

1416059060

 

From beautiful to epic, this seed features huge floating islands, and a massive overhanging mountain that will make your jaw drop. The overhanging mountain also has natural waterfalls, and huge canopies that allow monsters to spawn in broad daylight.

seed 5

The seed is filled with this crazy mountains and around them are wide forests. Survival-wise, this seed is a bit tricky to play with. Hostile mobs wills pawn near the mountain making it hazardous even in broad daylight. Overall, this seed reminds me of the fantasy world Pandora from the Avatar movie making it one of the best seeds in MCPE.

The things I like the most about Minecraft are creating my own zen garden, trimming those leaves to create a grass sculpture, farming, and gardening overall. I find them peaceful and yet somewhat lacking.

Garden Stuff is a mod that adds a lot of garden-related items and content including modular and highly customizable pots, garden trees, flower-arrangement mechanics, and much more. Definitely a mod that fills the Minecraft void I am having.

 

1

 

Created by Jaquadro, Garden Stuff is a collection of garden-based mods that superseded the Modular Flower Pots mod. Garden Stuff features 3 different mods that are meant to be used together.

Garden Core

From the name itself, Garden Core is a core mod required for the other 2 mods to work properly. By itself, this mod features only a small amount of usable content. This mod allows multiple plants to planted on a single block – like a simple flower arrangement. It also includes a bunch of misc. items that are used on other garden mods.

Garden Containers 

Formerly called modular flower pots, this mod contains several types of flower pots that can be customized.

With the use of a special workbench added by this mod and some dye, the new pots come in all types of Minecraft colors and can also be decorated with a stamp from among 10 unique designs.

 

modpotsCarvedPots

 

Just like vanilla fences, these flower pots combine when placed beside a pot with similar characteristics.

 

4

 

Garden Trees

Garden Trees feature ornamental tree components and mechanics that allow tree saplings to grow into miniature trees (although not bonsai-sized).

 

5

 

The mod also adds log fences that are available in all log type variations.

 

6

 

This mod is also compatible with a bunch of tree-adding mods such as the famous Biomes O’ Plenty mod.

Overall, if you like gardening and feel like Minecraft just doesn’t have what it takes to fulfill your gardening desires, then I suggest you get this mod.

 

How to install Garden Stuff Mod for Minecraft 1.7.10

 

  1. Download and install Minecraft Forge mod loader

  2. Download the latest version of Garden Stuff Mods.

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

Five Nights at Freddy’s have finally come to Minecraft 1.8,

The Plot

Five Nights at Freddy’s is a popular indie horror game that revolves around the night shift guard (named Mike Schmidt), as he tries to survive five nights at the famous pizzeria /restaurant with a number of crazy mechanical dolls. These mascots act as waiter during the day, and crazed killer during the night.
Minecraft

Five Nights at Freddy’s have been in the industry for only a short time, but Minecraft map makers and players seem to love it. As a result they have created a number of FNAF (Five Nights at Freddy’s) maps all based on the original game.

FNAF 2 has also been recently released, and just like the first one, Minecraft versions of this map have been popping too.

Maps

There have been many variations of the FNAF map in minecraft, but we will only cover a few.

[1.8] Heal Pony’s FNAF

WYq3y6A

The mechanics and goal is about the same as the original game. The player must survive from dusk till dawn for five consecutive nights.

In this map, many game mechanics have been removed and have been replaced by a minecraft counter-part, and death scenes are randomized. However, compared to other maps, the animatronics (the killer robotic mascots) on this map are far more good looking, as they’re model is a bit different and the textures are a lot nicer.

Check out Heal Pony’s FNAF Trailer

 

[1.8] ReatherHellSong’s FNAF – Vanilla MC

Ho8dcvA 3rh4zrj

This is a fully-functional Five Nights at Freddy’s Minecraft remake that uses most of the command features and animated armor stands introduced on Minecraft 1.8. The map uses a custom resource pack for the sound and textures. The animatronics are just minecraft-reskins so they aren’t visually frightening. However, this map featuers good jumpscares that are at par with the original game.

Here is a video playthrough of ReatherHellSong’s FNAF Map.

 

How to Install FNAF Maps for Minecraft
Download Heal Pony’s FNAF or ReatherHellSong’s FNAF.

Hold the Windows key and press R to open the Run… dialog, or access it via the start menu.

Type in %appdata% and navigate to .minecraft\saves

Unzip the .zip file from step 1 and place the folder in this directory.

Run the launcher without mods, select single player, and start the game!

 

 

If you are a fan of the original Five Nights at Freddy’s Game and you love Minecraft, then why don’t you combine the two and try these map.

Try to break your Minecraft and your head with Click_Me’s Mod – No Cubes.

 

2014-11-24_17.52.36

 

No Cubes is a unique mod that breaks minecraft into two – literally. This mod replaces the blocky minecraft landscape and turn it into something unexplainable, horrifying, and down right non-lore friendly. I’m not making a lot of sense? Well, this mod turns the game closer to reality by making the terrain a LOT more realistic.

 

2014-11-24_17.50.55

 

What a horrifyingly beautiful thing to do, and Click_Me has done it.

Featuring a new engine to support a more smooth gameplay, No cubes breaks the traditional minecraft feel and immersion by changing the block terrain formation and transforming it to a more smooth and rounded look. This makes the traditional squarish caves into tube/ circle like what they are in real life. Mountains and hills would also look more mountain-y. Even the Nether is affected with this mod.

2014-11-24_17.48.16

 

2014-11-24_17.49.03

 

With this mod installed, it is possible to see circles in Minecraft (Crazy right?). As I have observed, only natural terrain blocks are affected (i.e. sand, dirt, grass, stone, gravel, netherrack, ores, and a few others), crafted blocks like plank, dispensers, and cobblestones display as they should, making most of your houses safe from this unspeakably evil phenomenon.

 

gui

 

The mod also features a UI that allows it to be disabled completely at will without uninstalling the mod.

 

2014-11-24_17.47.23

 

Since this is a client-side mod that doesn’t add new content and is only for aesthetic, you can use it freely on Multiplayer servers without causing server-side issues.

 

2014-11-24_17.47.57

 

As of the moment, No Cubes is extremely on an experimental state. However, version 1.7.10 is still completely usable.

 

2014-11-24_17.55.582014-11-24_17.56.13

 

 

If you want a more stable build, No Cubes for 1.7.2 should be fairly stable – but bugs are still to be expected.

Overall, despite how crazy this mod makes the game, It is actually a well-done mod and the author is incredibly amazing at it. Taking the cubes of minecraft terrain is downright weird, but when you get used to it, you’ll find it hard to turn back to the old squarish world.

How to install No Cubes Mod for Minecraft 1.7.10

 

  1. Download and install Minecraft Forge mod loader

  2. Download the latest version of No Cubes.

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

  4. Enter %appdata% and navigate to your .minecraft/mods folder.

  5. Drag and drop the .zip file downloaded in step 2 into this folder.

 

 

I support this mod 100%. If all the bugs are taken care of, I’d go back and try it again for sure. Let us know your thoughts too by leaving a comment below.

 

Fans of the Final Fantasy franchise would definitely find this mod amusing. ChocoCraft adds chocobos in Minecraft, I bet you thought chocolates right?

What is a Chocobo?
A Chocobo is a giant ride-able bird (comparable to ostriches in size) that inhabits Square’s Final Fantasy worlds. And with this mod, a wide variety of chocobos will inhabit the world of Minecraftia.

 

chocobo_pink_red

 

Mod Features

This mod adds several colored chocobos in game. Different colored chocobos have different attributes, skills, and rarity.

Chocobos are good for three things: Transportation, food, and storage. These mobs can be killed – dropping their meat in the process, they can also be tamed and saddled so players can ride on them, and lastly they can equip extra bags for mobile inventory storage.

 

pic_saddled

 

Chocobos will spawn in the wild and are naturally afraid of human contact. In order to approach a chocobo safely and increase the chance of taming them, you can equip a chocobo costume that can be crafted using chocobo feathers.

 

pic_gysahl_in_wild

 

Wild chocobos can be tamed using Gysahl Greens – an orange radish looking vegetable – that grows naturally on forest and plain biomes. You may also plant and farm Gysahl Greens by using their seeds.

You can tame and breed chocobos to get a rarer color. Rare colored chocobos have special abilities like flying, extra jump, super speed, and more.

 

chocobo_colours_org

 

Baby chocobos, no matter what their color, are called chicobos which will in time, grow into wild chocobos of their own. These chocobos will inherit the colors of their parent chocobos or will rarely mutate into a different color of higher rarity.

This mod also adds various items and blocks related to these new birds such as chocobo saddles, saddle bags, golden gysahl, gysahl cake, straw, chocopedia, and much more.
