They have reviews on mods, servers and texture packs. But they also just have general news too. Weather your a new MC player or a veteran from Alpha you'll love this site. Also give their look of one of my top recommended texture packs " The End Is Extremely Nigh "

What Type Of Custom Map

Firstly you have to kow.. does one really wish to form this map? 
Am i about to quit halfway?
Do I actually have the time?

If you think you do then scan on..

Firstly you wish to make a decision what time of Custom map you wish to try to do;

Puzzle - various Puzzles made using redstone machines are what these types of maps usually are made of. So if you want to do this you will need atleast a basic understanding of building 

with redstone.

Adventure - a Main quest to realize a goal. Usually those who make these maps start off building some sort of village. It is somewhat difficult to make a map that stands out.

RPG - a lot of very little quests with no main plot line, takes alot of your time and dedication and you wont want to do this if your short on time. Can require more than a month of extra work.

Complaints on the Terrain :(

Before I hated people who said the terrain was boring... but it is REALLY flat. i guess i must agree now. While I'm in love with oceans and mushroom lands and jungles, there's not as much interesting stuff on the planet. I really wish that jeb would put back in what notch took out: Mountain land forms.

By that I mean not a mountain biome, but allowing allowing mountains to spawn in any biome on their own. That was one reason that the 1.7.3 generator was so exceptional.

I think it would be cool if mountains were integrated in the world generator much like lakes are now. With them being randomly dispersed anywhere. It could spawn in plains, to allow villages to be at the crescendo of the world. Even in oceans so you could have a  Volcano looking thing. Heck, they could even spawn in swamps. Allowing for some pretty cool trash to happen.

Also, Jeb needs to put back the gravel beaches. They were so cool and actually realistic for some places like alsaka.

More Ocean Mobs!

I have always wondered why  the HUGE and biggest of the biomes has the least mobs. So after thinking about it for a while and talking to some friends I came up with these:Birds sting rays, Piranha or other undersea predators), underwater treasure chests, guarded by ocean mobs that are friendly away from the treasure, but attack you within 10 blocks of the treasure chest .Lastly just lobsters cause there awsome and a fancy food :).

Birds: spawn randomly around oceans but must spawn away from other birds. Fly in the air. Are hostile when the player is holding a fish. They would be 1 by 2 blocks in size.

sting rays: spawn naturally on the sea floor with depths of atleast 8 blocks.Only do damage when you are touched by them. Passive.

Pihrana. Same mechanics as any other hostile mob but rarer and spawns in water. Fast

Treasure chest: description in list above/\ could be guarded by some type of j
Jellyfish or something.

Lobster: spawn on beaches. hostile. small amount of hears 2 or 3, they would do 1 heart of damage per hit.

New Mob Idea

Remember way back when the Enderman was first released? We were all scared it would come and reek havoc on our beautiful creations. But in the end all they really do is slightly move blocks around and are mostly a nuisance. Which brings me to the subject of this post.

On to the suggestion part, let's get a small mob maybe the size of a chicken or a pig height wise, and furry. It spawns in light levels of 8 and above. This little annoying creature will not be aggressive  but will defend itself if attacked but it'll be quite weak only having a few hearts. It's mischievous and will destroy your torches or place blocks in your tunnels maybe put a piece of cobble over your chest to deter you from opening. It wouldn't do any real harm but would cause some damage and be quite annoying. What do you think? Any Ideas for a name for our little evil friend?

Why Cauldrons are Great For Aesthetics

Cauldron with the default texture

Cauldrons are very useful aesthetical features to a map; Even more though when you have it with a anvil. They are very versatile too.

Since their water amount can be changed you have even more possibilities! A small amount of water can be used to look like a pot that catches water from a peasants old leaky ceiling.

Practical use
They can be used to make it feel like the user is wet - taking advantage of the trip wire and having a dispenser behind (not usable to the player of course) You can have it filled with potions of fire resistance (preferably a lower level)  and it will emulate the player being wet. Now the only aesthetic problem is the water level dosen't lower as you use it. But who cares..

My Scariest Minecraft Moment

While I was building my farm in the air which I couldn't stop falling off of! ugh. The shift key cant always save you! Each level of my farm was about 20 blocks high, including the the ceiling. Well I just had finished making the third level of it and was amazed by the height, and stared at it in awe. So I ran about to get my shovel and pick to finish building it, but it was now nighttime. 

Now I had a rule I wouldn't go near it at after dark, even though all the floors were completely lit. Me and mobs have had a  bad past together so I was paranoid. While I was walking across my path too my other base . I was planning on getting some tools so I could finally finish this project . So  I seal the entrance to the roof so I can work on the room beneath the top and create my storage room.
Well its dark out, but I don't care I sealed the roof. Get in the room via ladders, nothing in there, of course. Set up the room the way I need it and drop down to the ground level to pick up some chests. I climb back up the ladder, reach the storage and guess who came to the party? thats right Mr. Creeper. I hear the SSSSSS... and know I'm done for. FUUUUUUUU
I curse that creeper with everything I had at destroying an entire WALL SECTION, the building was sand so it just crumbled. I go back up to fix it and gather my items...and just my luck his brother came too... SSSSSS.. POW and I die. FUUUUUU
I go back into the ground floor to assess the damage. The room was now destroyed and half my wall was too. Oh wait but what is that hurtling down, from two floors up, towards gotta be..SSSSSSS....shitting m...boom. Dead. 
The next daylight comes around and I have actually fixed the building, I unseal the roof and stand over the side..SSSS...OH COME ON!...boom. Hurdle to the ground. I couldn't belive it. I raged SOOOOOOO hard.

Now what you should learn from my mistakes is one Creeper deserve a special place in hell. But also Never make a Sky Farm. Now go on young miner and make your own Adventures!
