  1. Okay, I don't mind the new emotes on Bedrock so much as I dont plan to use them, but the prices on them are nuts!

    Some of them go as high as $7. Absurd.

    I mean, I might pay 7 cents for one...

    1. __Mine__


      Not at all surprised they're monetising the hell out of the Emotes.

      They were a mistake, imo. Shamelessly ripping off Fortnite, for one thing, but also a lot of them have animations that don't fit Minecraft at all.

      So glad they're not on Java.

  2. Mojang: The Nether Update is feature complete.

    Also Mojang: *adds new mob in Bedrock beta 🤨


    I assume the 'Piglin Brute' will be in a java snapshot next week.

      To be fair, parity finally seems to be a priority with 1.16. And that goes both ways, java -> bedrock and Bedrock -> java. 1.16 added soo many parity features to Bedrock I'd wanted ever since Bedrock came out.

  3. Xbox Series X is modeled off simple building.

    Ps5 is a model for fancy building.

  4. 1.16 change log is absolutely nuts. 

    Anyone who wasn't following the update through development will be shocked.

    Is 1.16 now the largest update Minecraft's ever had?

      My favorite things are all the Blackstone blocks. I've wanted black bricks and things for I while.

      I also like the lodestone a lot.

      @__Mine__ The update was a bigger one, but it's nothing drastic. I'd say the most overwhelmed would be those just starting to play Minecraft. They could get a bit overwhelmed when they hear more features are being built onto the features they're already trying to learn. I think any casual Minecraft player would be excited to learn the new features rather than being bombarded.

      @9redwoods "to some people".

  5. Nether Update out on Java and Bedrock on Tuesday, the 23'rd!

  6. I think the Nether Update may have the best looking Update Artwork yet.

      The background looks off, but other than that it looks okay.

      Veeeery nice. Any planned release date with this?

      i think the nether update may have the best looking trailer yet

  7. Okay, this argument has gotten so ridiculous, I'm pretty much taking @moniker's side at this point. I haven't really been engaged in this conversation, so ima give my objective view on this. It looks like it started out with moniker having some suggestion for thing he thought Mine-imator ought to have, and some disagreeing with both the suggestions and the rather blunt manner in which they were presented. Then it turns into this thing where anything Moniker says is automatically bad because others keep passing off their inane opinions as fact. Saying things like, "Nobody wants this", "we don't need this" which translate as "I don't want this". He actually has some pretty good ideas I think. A search bar for hierarchy? Great, I'd love that. But then some come along and say since they wouldn't benefit from this, neither would anyone else.
  8. Apparently today is President Trump's birthday.

    And the 245'th birthday of the US Army.

    And also Flag Day.


    Whole lot of 'murica goin on today.

      lul murica ya

  9. I love how ANTIFA basically founded their own country in the middle of Seattle(Who the heck is 'Chaz'?), and the first thing they do is build a wall. 🤣

    I'm sorry, I thought they wanted open borders? And what's this?? They screen people before they let them in? I guess they dont want certain types coming in. 

    Oh my. And they evict residents who cant pay their dues.

    All this sounds liiike... everything they claim to be against! Wow. 

    Hypocrisy unparalleled.

  10. What I wish next gen console developers would do:

    "Hey, we can keep the graphics quality the same but have a map twice as big and full the game up with content!"


    What next gen developers are going to do:

    "We'll make a game that has no content, isn't fun, and runs like crap, but no one will care because the visuals will be incredible."

      ps5's games that have been shown mostly don't even look like they're using the new stuff

      dunno about xbox though, haven't watched much about it

      The event Xbox had showed a few visually cool games for about 4 seconds after hyping it up for a week.

      I have high hopes for the first-party showcase next month. Looking forward to Halo Infinite, and really hoping for Forza Horizon 5

  11. Can we all agree that the Xbox Series X has a smarter, more practical design?

    The entire top of the thing is a vent. 

    I feel like ps5 may have an overheating problem.

    1. HeYoNia


      Put a fan in front of PS5.



      boom easy fix.

  12. The ps5 design is uh...interesting. Definitely very different. Very different.

    I'm looking at it and all I can think is....can you turn it on its side?? Cause it looks like a large router.

    Honest opinion tho, I think it looks stupid.

    And I'm not saying that just because I'm an Xbox user. I mean objectively, I think it looks dumb. It looks like they tried way too hard to make it cool and futuristic.

    I prefer simplicity, like the Xbox Series X. What's more simple than a small, matte black mini fridge?

    But, I must admit, some of those ps5 games look pretty sweet.

    Also the thing is a powerhouse, so. Yeah.


    1. Draco63


      I'd buy it just for the power.

      If I actually cared about consoles XD

      It's a little faster than XSX, but XSX is more powerful.


  13. If there was an epidemic where kids all over the world were eating crayons would it be called Crayolavirus?

  14. Mi supports .mimodel files, which is in json format, and it also supports json block models.
  15. Also, shortcuts to change the grid snap size too. I often switch between 1px and 0.5px, and it would be very handy to have a hotkey to change. Of course you should be able to change the snap hotkey values in settings.
  16. In todays 1.16 pre release, what does the 'fabulous' graphics option even do? I can't notice any difference.

    1. __Mine__



      Basically something to do with transparency?

    2. Voxy



      Fabulous graphics fixes a lot of issues with transparency. Notice how particles can now actually render behind stained glass, and that transparent particles now layer properly with themselves and the clouds behind them.

      Basically, it fixes the equivalent of Mine-imator's alpha glitches.

  17. I predict the Nether Update will be out for both version before June 20.

    No reason, I just think so. Or hope so.

  18. These riots are so stupid.

    I mean, I'm all for protesting, but this is going too far. You start destroying property and committing arson, you're not protesting. You are a criminal. Those actions are illegal.

    Like if they go to some shop, and burn down the place just to make a point, they could be destroying someone's livelihood. Even if it's for a worthy cause, it's still wrong.

    And what are they even advocating?? Justice for Flynn? Justice will be served. That cop will go to prison, and hopefully never get out. Maybe he'll get capitol punishment.

    I dont know. Maybe they're all bored from quarantine, and rioting is something to do.

      What: politicising everything.

      Why: Donald Trump is up for reelection.

      My answer, take it or leave it.

    4. Voxy


      Rioting seems to be how your country get things moving, though. Ever since its creation.

      Peaceful protests are silenced and ridiculed. If the only way to get heard is to use force, so be it.

      Besides, that's conveniently ignoring the other peaceful protests in other parts of your country, or the ones that quickly escalate because of the police getting in the way, showering everyone in tear gas because they can.

  19. Good going NASA and SpaceX!

    Very cool to watch the first launch from the United States of America in 9 years!


  20. I'm confused. Why are people rioting??

      @Swift Ive not seen one person defend the cop. I wouldnt have thought you were defending him.

      I wanna know if the person who filmed is it being thrown in prison.

      If you ask me, the person standing by doing nothing while recording with their phone is just as guilty as the murderer.

    4. Voxy


      Ah yes, let's throw the teenage girl who recorded evidence in jail for... not trying to face 4 cops who don't seem to mind sadistically killing people. I'm sure it would've gone well and it absolutely wouldn't have allowed them to silence the story.

  21. If the Series X is tall and fat, will Ps5 be long and slender?🤔

      xbox series x console war guys fighting with ps5 war guys

  22. I am grateful every day for the men and women who died in service of my country.

    They were willing to give up their own freedom to secure mine, and yours if you're an American citizen. I hope we never forget that.

    Happy Memorial Day. 🇺🇸

      *blah blah blah coronavirus politics blah blah blah*

      Laughs in antarctica.

  23. So, Half Life fans who have played Half life alyx...


    Valve has confirmed that they're not done making Half Life games, as if the after credits scene of Hl:Alyx wasn't confirmation enough.


    Would you prefer that Hl go back to flat screen or stick with vr?

    Having play Alyx and loving it, I really hope whatever they do next us vr. It was quite an experience and one I throughly enjoyed.

      I'd prefer flatscreen. VR is for rich people

      Not...really. I mean If you've already got a pc that can do it, you can get the Samsung Odyssey for $270. Less, if you get it used.


      However, being the genius I am, I got mine for $312. Lol.

      But that was before it went down to $270

    4. Dannyboi


      That's more money than most people I know have had to freely spend at any point in time.

  24. If there were one game you could replay for the first time what would  It be?


    I think for me it would probably be...either Portal 2 or Half Life Alyx.

      minecraft because now it's one of the most boring games i own

      and no frick off i don't want anyone to ask me why it's boring, this might've been one of the reasons i got kicked from the only group chat that i actually used because everybody there knew basically everything about mc that i didn't even though i started playing in 2012 on xbox 360 edition

    3. Ethaniel


      @Cubic Ralsei Nah I totally get that. I feel like Ive pretty much done everything in the game I could do, and even if that's far from the truth I dont have the drive to gather the resources. Playing creative isnt rewarding but survival is pretty grindy, there's not much a balance between the two which of course makes sense because creative and survival are two different game modes but you know. 

    4. FredMCGamer


      For me it would be Minecraft
