Pocket and WIN10 edition update

Really exciting news! the Pocket and WIN10 edition of Minecraft’s latest update has finally added command blocks! These very useful items allow you to program in game functions to help build adventure maps, mini games etc. In our opinion it is a very much over due addition we are delighted to finally get. Oh, and the power rangers suits, we are 90’s kids so this is a real trip down memory lane!

We hope you enjoy the update too!

New snapshot, we have parrots!

Minecraft’s new snapshot has been release (17W13A) and unfortunately there are no dye-able beds, but there are tamable parrots! We are very excited at the prospect of having a feathery companion, and we can see some Pirate themed builds and mini games in the future, based on this new and exciting addition to the game.

 

Beware of fake Mods

Google has recently removed upto 87 fake Minecraft mods from the play store, after they were exposed by users. The fake mods and applications display out of app adverts (by using a Trojan agent – a type of Virus), but also have access to your personal data on the device. As if they was not bad enough, some mods are not mods at all, and the Download button just redirects you to different, often adult themed, websites.

If your not sure about a mod, or other Minecraft app, don’t download it. Remember to always stay safe online. 

Some of the in game action from LAN v2.1

Different colour beds!

Its been very long overdue in our book, but the ability to dye your beds in Minecraft is finally on the horizon. A tweet by Jens Bergensten (Lead Minecraft developer) has stated that this feature will be in the upcoming 1.12 update for Minecraft, and 1.2 (ish) for Minecraft pocket edition.

 We are so please with this, I don’t thing anyone will have a red bed again!

The Leaderboard is back

After a small break the leaderboard is back up and running on our online server. and after only a day players are storming up it. Will you be able to reach the top, jump on the server and try it out!

LAN v2.2

So our next event, LAN v2.2, opened registration on Monday 6th, and within 2 days we are already 30% full! This just goes to show how popular Minecraft is, and we are very happy to be providing these events. We hope if you want, or know someone who wants a place, you get one. We have a feeling they may sell out very fast!

A very cool little video from one of our players

Minecraft Realms

Today on Minecraft.net Mojang have published a very handy guide for anyone new to the world of realms. What are they, what can you do with them, how are they controlled, and how much to they cost? All is revealed, click the picture below to be taken there!

LAN v2.1

What a massive success, thank you to all of the players, the parents, helpers, the staff at GLive and all of our sponsors for the amazing prizes. We will be updating the website with pictures and videos from the day. The only hic-up was the live stream, which did not work. we did however record lots from each of the games, so we will be sharing this content with you. As always we have now reset the online server, so we have a new Survival world, this will have a new version of the leaderboard mod installed and we will keep track of all the in game achievements players collect with a chance to win a prize at the next event. Check back soon for more Minecraft fun!
