Animal Breeding Barn

Posted by Admin on 24 December, 2011

In later versions of Minecraft they’ve significantly altered the way in which animals spawn in parts of the world. Now it’s important to breed animals if you want to have an unlimited supply without traveling too far. Here in this barn we always make sure to keep a minimum of two of the kinds of […]

New Moon Behind Pumpkin Sombrero

Posted by Admin on 22 December, 2011

There are multiple levels of cool represented in this screenshot. Most prominent is probably the sombrero jack-o-lantern made with a glowing pumpkin inside of a giant mushroom. There is also the new moon in the background. This is one of the later additions to Minecraft: moon phases.
