The hopper block is possibly the most exciting new minecraft block since the piston, as it adds a new mechanic to the game. Mob grinders and farms can now be automated, as the hopper block collects items that fall into it.
You can collect items from the hopper by right clicking it. The hopper has five slots and can therefore collect five different stacks of items before it needs to be cleared.
This is still a work in progress, linked to Minecraft Snapshot 13w01b. We can expect to see the hopper optimized in the future, for the moment operation is fairly messy. Unlike other minecraft mechanic blocks, hoppers do not need to be redstone activated to work.
Wormhole Survival is a classic skyblock style minecraft survival map – with a twist. See all those islands in the teaser picture? Think you can just build yourself a cobblestone bridge between them all and call it a day? No I say unto you, nay! The only way to reach the various islands is to be teleported between them. Doesn’t sound too bad so far, right?
Unfortunately for you, you’ll be teleported at random whenever the map decides that it has had enough of you being in one particular spot. This means that you can’t simply build a cosy little base, farm some wheat and declare the map finished, because no sooner have you made your first loaf of bread than you’ll find yourself on another island entirely, with no resources besides the ones in your deep minecraft pockets. This adds a definite edge to the game of minecraft survival and more than that it is a truly original minecraft survival map. I bolded that because originality becomes rarer the further we go along.
Every sunset and sunrise, you’ll find yourself being ripped away from whatever you know and teleported to a new biome. There you must survive, collect resources and hope that your next trip in ten minutes or so takes you somewhere nice. If you’re low on health and you end up in the ‘bedrock and a piece of ice’ biome, you’ll be in trouble. This is, for obvious reasons, a very exciting new minecraft survival map.
When the human’s heart becomes controlled by whimsical desires,
it will search through even the deepest of tunnels.
Cold, motionless pockets of opportunities, tunneling through the void
of the Specular’s mind, he travels through the unknown.
It’s pretty bold to go out there and say that anything is the most beautiful anything of all time, but Lunar Awakening is the sort of minecraft map that makes you stop for a second just to breathe in its awesomeness. (And I mean that in the traditional sense of the world.) Minecraft builder Circleight has created a high fantasy minecraft adventure that is more than just a pleasure to play – it changes your whole view of what is and what is not possible in minecraft.
The builds are obviously quite fantastic, and there is a definite JRPG feel to the map, mostly because it’s magical as all get out. Poetic and artistic, this is more than a mere adventure. This is a journey.
They call this a mini game, but there’s nothing mini about this Mario Kart inspired map that will allow you and five of your most minecraft owning friends to race around a custom built world. The map uses the command block to change game states, so the first person to finish three complete laps of the course will be changed to creative mode and will be able to fly up to the winner’s platform. Your mount is a pig, not a car, so be aware that there are some unique challenges involved when trying to steer and brake a minecraft pig. This massively fun minecraft map is a must download for anyone who enjoys multiplayer fun!
