    Wandavision was such a solid show at the beginning and peaked in the middle; I'm disappointed that they didn't spend more time exploring the mental health/emotional part of Wanda because those were my favorite parts. The last episode CGI battle was just not as fun for me because the previous episodes were so much better. The S.W.O.R.D subplot got boring too. Also more Jimmy Woo please.
    Can't lie though, the ending had me crying. 7/10, solid but it could've been so much better.

    it's okay though cause I heard the doctor strange motif at the end of the end credits cutscene LETS GOOOOO

    Over the past 5 years my brother and I spent a lot of time building a world. But he left and joined the Army a few months ago. I haven't touched the world since, and I don't think I will again.
    I remember back in December of 2016 I think, late at night loading up this world for the first time on Xbox 360 in eager anticipation of what was the Console Edition equivalent of 1.9. I remember defeating the Ender Dragon for the first time. Transferring the world to Xbox One Edition and eventually Bedrock for the Update Aquatic. Even losing it to corruption multiple times(thankfully being able to recover it) and one time on Bedrock accidentally deleting it and have to revert back to the latest Xbox One Edition version and rebuild a year's worth of progress(In creative of course. Ain't no one got time to rebuild that in survival). There's projects that are big and beautiful, some that are just hideous, but I never think of destroying them. Some that were never even completed.
    But now that this incredible journey is seemingly over, looking back I realize it was never what version we were playing, or what we were building or doing, but just being there doing it was the best part. I can get so caught up in whatever the next big update is and all the amazing features being added, but this made me remember why I fell in love with the game in the first place.
    What was once my survival world is now a priceless archive of some of my fondest memories.
    Now, I have no intention of quitting Minecraft. In fact I'm looking forward to beginning a brand new adventure when the Caves and Cliffs update releases.
    Feels silly to post something like this, but I was just thinking about it, so idk.

    Hey all!
    Yesterday, I wrote an announcement regarding the surprise reveal of what was then going to be the new icon for Mine-imator going forward, and how the negative reception of it made me reconsider this design choice.
    I took this opportunity to show you a different take on the icon, and judging by the overwhelmingly positive reactions, I think it's fair to say that we've got a winner on our hands! After a few minor tweaks and touch ups, I believe it's ready, waiting to be used once Mine-imator 1.3 launches.
    But wait, what about Modelbench? Well, obviously I couldn't leave its icon untouched! After all, the goal of the rebrand is to unify both apps into one identity, so it's only natural to give it a fancy new icon as well! There was one challenge to overcome. What could we put in that colorful hexagon? Putting a bunch of cubes seemed like an obvious answer, but it just didn't look quite right... The Mine-imator icon had a 3D, Minecraft styled item inside that hexagon, so... Modelbench would have to follow that template, or else it just wouldn't work. But what kind of item should it be? What object is best suited to illustrate the modeling process?
    What about a hammer? This was an idea from Nimi, that he had while we brainstormed. It could work, you can build stuff with one of those. The question was now, "what should it look like?". His proposal was a blacksmith's hammer, but I felt like it didn't fit the program's name too well. After all, it's called Modelbench, not Modelforge... (that would've been a neat name, though!) So, in the end, we settled on the good old claw hammer. And after a bit of quick rigging and tracing...

    Here they are! The Mine-imator family now has its own set of icons! I hope you'll like it just as much as the one I've shown yesterday, and once again, please share any feedback you might have!
    See you around!

    Alright, I think it's best to just put all my thoughts in one place to make things clearer.
    I didn't really expect that revealing the new icon in a joke post would cause such a reaction. I initially dismissed it because, to be honest, the icon is a low priority for me, as there's a lot of stuff that still needs to be worked on to get the upcoming update ready, which is also why I wasn't very open to feedback, as I would much prefer to focus on getting feedback about the UI. I realize that was the wrong approach to the issue, hence why I'm writing this.
    Another reason is that the branding is a little different to how I planned it going forward. While currently, the icon and logo are sort of stuck together, I decided to separate it all out into three distinct bits: logo, icon, and mascots. I don't plan on changing that, they will remain separate.
    What is going to change is the icon itself. A recurring bit of criticism about the logo is that it doesn't feel related to Minecraft anymore. When I designed it, I just focused on making it readable. I tried to make it belong with the rest of the branding using evocative colors and shapes, but in the end, it appears that it lost too much character and ended up less appealing. As we speak, I'm currently working on a first iteration for a new design, which will hopefully tie-in with the program and the game it's based on:

    This new design is rather popular with the Mine-imator staff, and I hope it will be for the rest of you too. If there are any ideas or improvements you'd like to share, feel free to.
    Lastly, I'd like to apologize for my unprofessional and rude attitude. The rocky launch of Modelbench made it clear that transparency was important when it came to wanting to change how people use your program, but I hadn't realized that the icon would've been part of that too. I'll be sure to learn from that mistake and I hope we can move forward and work together in this next big step in the history of Mine-imator.
    Take care, y'all. ✌️

    saw this on a post, is it a new logo or just an export icon?. if it's a new logo, it really wouldn't fit as a logo at all. it doesn't say "minecraft animation software". there's a similar issue with modelbench's logo, it doesn't even show anything related to modeling or minecraft. they're also just not appealing at all.
