Haunted holidays and creepy candies
Thumbnail for 14392

Originally posted at: https://mojang.com/2016/10/haunted-holidays-and-creepy-candies/

With Halloween just around the corner, we asked community mapmakers if they were working on anything particularly Halloween-ish, and they replied with a resounding, “Yes!” This is the biggest Realms map release so far, with seven total upcoming experiences. Read on to find out more about each map!

Herobrine’s Mansion by Hypixel and Xiantis

Originally published three years ago, Herobrine’s Mansion was one of the first adventure maps to make extensive use of command blocks. Players face off against the devious Herobrine, but you can only reach him once you defeat his minions. Now, with some updated mechanics and a fresh coat of paint, this faithful recreation of Herobrine’s Mansion is ready for you and your friends!

The Dornenstein Estate by Mangelware, DIDschl, and Saophai

The Dornenstein Estate is simply one of the best-scripted maps we’ve seen so far. While taking a short, spooky journey through this mansion, you’ll need to find several relics to progress. Tricks abound throughout the house as sights, sounds, and freaky experiences make you wonder what is real and what’s not.

Forgotten Hamlet by Theticman and ChildOfStars

While we’re winding down on accepting new survival spawns for now (this marks the 30th one!), Forgotten Hamlet couldn’t be passed up. It fit the theme of our Halloween release, was markedly different from other maps on Realms, and it even has a trailer! We like this map a lot and hope that you’ll enjoy it as well.

Trick or Treat by CommandRedstone, BREEZ90, gilly330, and Pebble

What would Halloween be without some trick-or-treating? This minigame puts you and your costumed friends into a haunted neighborhood, searching for candy. You’ll need to frantically run from house to house, obtaining goodies from villagers, all while dodging others who want to take your loot!

Unsighted Shadow by MineMakers Team

You play as a journalist, investigating a seemingly-empty building at night. Armed with your flashlight, camera, and a grappling hook, you’ve got to figure out what happened here, then escape what you find inside…

Pumpkin Party by Plagiatus, dragonmaster95, and Tomhelduf

Grab your friends and join us at the pumpkin party! There’s no dress code, though costumes are suggested. Try on the wither suit and more! Once you’ve suited up, you’ll cycle randomly through five exciting minigames. Have fun!

Monster Kids by Moesh

Some folks know that Moesh has been working behind the scenes with me for a while now, helping to make Realms content bigger and better. For Halloween, he’s created the answer to a question we found ourselves pondering: “Do monsters go trick-or-treating too!?” Players compete to gather the most candies by descending into the dark depths of their natural cave habitat. Get the most candy, and you win! Masterfully making members manage munchies, Moesh’s map is a marvel of monster mechanics.

The more the scarier

Celebrating Halloween, Monster Kids will be available to you on Monday. The remaining six maps can be downloaded from Realms for PC right now; just load up Minecraft, click on Realms, and reset a world slot to one of these new experiences. If you or a friend don’t already have a Realm, you can find out more at minecraft.net/realms. If you enjoy these maps, take a moment to let the creators or myself know; we’d love to hear from you.

Until next time!

Halloweek begins as Spooky Bundle haunts consoles!

Yeah, I know: Halloweek isn’t actually a word. But hopefully this horrifying misuse of language is unsettling enough to get you in the mood for a week of creepy fun!

We’re kicking things off with the launch of the Spooky Bundle for Console Edition today: no tricks here, just three seasonal treats all rolled into one – the Halloween Mash-up, the Halloween Battle Map and the Campfire Tales Skin Pack. Check out the chilling trailer above and witness a trio of grisly delights, guaranteed to haunt your dreams FOREVER*!

*maybe

The Halloween Mash-Up features a custom-built world for you to haunt, replete with a uniquely terrifying texture pack. You can get into the spirit of things by donning one of our Campfire Tales skins: from mythical monsters to horrible hauntings and other strange sightings, this supernatural skin pack is the ideal way to frighten friends this Halloween. And if your desire for devilry is not yet sated, try out the wicked new map for the Battle Mini Game – and give your friends a real nightmare!

Creeping onto Console in the shadow of this uncanny pack is Battle Map Pack 4, featuring three magnificent new maps. Slink through the deserted snowbound science base of Dig, slog it out amid the over-sized furniture of Shrunk and hoedown before you showdown in the dusty Frontier.

We’re also launching the Builder’s Pack today: a superb starter pack for anyone interested in becoming a master of construction on Console Edition. It bundles together six impressive packs: Biome Settlers Skin Pack 1, Candy Texture Pack, Cartoon Texture Pack, Pattern Texture Pack, Plastic Texture Pack and Greek Mythology Mash-up. Cor!

AND YET…

This isn’t the end of the sinister surprises! We’ll be hosting a special livestream on Halloween itself in which our devs unleash the terrifying new mobs they’ve created with 0.16’s Add-Ons support! You’ll be able to download them for yourself, too!

And do you remember the spooky yarns we put out on Twitter? Watch out for our Campfire Tales unholy resurrection in video form – as narrated by Logdotzip!

CheeriooOOooOOoo!

Add-Ons! Sponges! Pocket / Win 10 gets the Boss Update

Originally posted at: https://mojang.com/2016/10/add-ons-realms-uploads-sponges-pocket-win-10-updated-to-016/

Wet sponges – I’ve recently discovered that babies like to suck on them, which is kinda gross to be honest. But let’s not worry about that for now. Minecraft: Pocket Edition and the Windows 10 Edition beta are being updated to 0.16 today, bringing loads of new features, most of which are not in the slightest bit soggy.

First: Add-Ons. These are kind of a big deal. Add-Ons allow anyone to change the way a Minecraft world works. You could, for example, change chickens’ behavior so you can ride them or make creepers even more explodey than they already are. You could take all of your memories, program them into a villager, then study its behaviour to help determine what you should do next with your life. Not sure about that actually, but Add-Ons are most definitely cool.

They could change the way you play Minecraft forever. And you can even share them with friends and family over Realms. Check out our dedicated page for more info and to see exciting examples of possible creations. And if you do end up dabbling in Add-Ons provide us with feedback so we can make them even better!

This update also brings the ability to upload and download your worlds to Minecraft Realms. That opens up a wealth of options. You can take your offline worlds and start sharing them with friends, download a Realm for those times you don’t have an internet connection, or use Realms to make regular backups of your offline worlds.

As if all that wasn’t enough, this update also brings life to a whole new part of your Minecraft worlds. Until now, Pocket and Windows 10 players haven’t had a reason to explore the depths but this update brings Ocean Monuments and their underwater inhabitants – Guardians and Elder Guardians – along with all kinds of water-themed goodness including sea lanterns, prismarine, and more. Go deep and explore!

OK! Enough blabbering! Here’s the full changelog!

[UPDATE: this list originally included entries for F3 support and coordinates, but these didn’t make it into this release after all. Soz.]

New Features

  • Ocean Monuments
  • Guardians and Elder Guardians
  • Prismarine, dark prismarine & prismarine bricks
  • Prismarine shard & prismarine crystal
  • Sea lantern
  • The Wither!
  • Nether star
  • Beacon
  • Wet & dry sponges
  • Slash commands (with a handy auto complete feature). Enable cheats for a world in the options screen for access, but note that Xbox Live achievements will be disabled when you’re using ‘em!
  • Custom key bindings! Hooray for lefties!
  • A new Creative inventory search feature
  • Add-On section for world settings
  • You can change game modes in Realms (note that doing this will restart the realm)
  • Ability to upload & download worlds in Realms
  • Ability to promote players as operators in Realms

Tweaks

  • UI improvements!
  • Performance improvements!
  • Tweaks to various mob action/behavior triggers, including fixing creeper explosions
  • Elder guardian de-buff visuals fixed (feedback from Android beta)
  • Fishing rods & arrows will fire in more than just one direction
  • Lots of tweaks to water textures to make underwater more fun
  • Tweaks to Realms settings
  • Visual tweaks to sun, moon & stars when rendering in VR immersive mode
  • Ridiculous numbers of bug fixes!

Enjoy 0.16, crafters. Dig deep and craft with all your might!
