The (Minecraft) world has ended, and there is nothing left. Well, ALMOST nothing; Code Wizards meddled in the balance of nature, and released hordes of monsters from other dimensions on an unsuspecting world. Not satisfied with just destroying human life, the monsters rampaged across the world eating everything they could find, and leaving nothing in their wake but empty void.

Now, it is up to you to rebuild an entire world from nearly nothing.

Agrarian Skies is a popular modpack made by Jadedcat, which takes the classic idea of a skyblock game, and cranks it up many, many notches. You start with a quest book, which guides you on your journey. Numerous spells, tools, and machines are at your disposal to complete your arduous task. However, be warned: this is not a modpack for the faint of heart! Loads of challenges, monsters, and more await you on your journey. Do you have what it takes to build an entire world?

One final note - you have a limited number of lives. That's right, you can only die so much before reality has had enough, and leaves you dead forever!

The quest book's introductory quest has a full voice-over as well, done by your favorite MCF news writer!

HOW DO I PLAY?

If you have the FTB Launcher, you can play simply by downloading the Agrarian Skies modpack, and starting up your game! Back to Top

Ask them questions! Take pictures with your favorite team members! Hang out! Maybe check out Blockholm too! Back to Top

This Monday, Minecraft: Pocket Edition developers Johan, Tommaso and Jens will star in a panel broadcast, live from the Mojang office. What will they be discussing? That’s up to you!

They are hoping to harness the collective power of the Pocket Edition players to submit questions to this reddit thread. Then, they will pick the best ones and put them to the team live on air. While the exact time of the show isn't currently known, the archived footage will be uploaded later on, just in case you do miss it.

This is all in celebration of hitting over 20 million sales of Pocket Edition just a few days ago. As mentioned in the Xbox 360 Edition post, Mojang is extremely grateful to all players for their dedication and creativity. Without that, Minecraft wouldn’t be anywhere near as significant as it is today.

Head to the reddit thread and submit your questions! Then check back on Monday for the live stream/archived footage! Back to Top

CHANGE YOUR MINECRAFT PASSWORD - WHY

A recent exploit found in OpenSSL (an open-source security socket layer, meant to secure/encrypt internet traffic) called "Heartbleed", made it possible for hackers to find and use passwords on systems using OpenSSL.


WAIT, MOJANG WAS HACKED?

No, Mojang was not hacked. Their servers are not vulnerable to the OpenSSL exploit, but the load balancers they use from Amazon were. As a precaution, it has been recommended that you update your Minecraft password, just to be sure.

Mojang said:

Due to an exploit in the OpenSSL software used by Amazon's load balancing serive (which we use for most of our stuff) we were forced to temporary suspend all of our services. All systems are now back online, and the exploit has been fixed. There was no way to target specific users, but we can not guarantee that your information wasn't compromised. Therefore we recommend everyone to change their Mojang/Minecraft account passwords.

WAIT - DO I CHANGE MY MINECRAFT PASSWORD, MOJANG PASSWORD, OR BOTH?

If you have not migrated your account, change your password at Minecraft.net.

If you have migrated your account, change your password at Mojang.com.

Regardless of whether you have or have not migrated, it is crucial to change your password. Back to Top

Have you played (or seen) Goat Simulator? Of course you have! You're a savvy internet dweller, and know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. Goats. Smashing things. Running. Basically, being a goat and/or possibly a highly elaborate April Fool's prank. Goat Simulator!

SethBling has devised an incredibly clever way for you to become a goat, in Minecraft! Okay, less of a goat, more of a sheep, but the end-result is basically the same - run into things at high speed, sending blocks, chests, and everything else sailing off into the distance! Cause chaos! Grief as a farm animal! Weee!

In this video, Mhykol and I help Seth test out this latest crazy invention. Want to play it yourself? Join on "us.playmindcrack.com", then head to the museum! Back to Top

Minecraft 1.7.6 pre-release 1 is available for testing! This is a huge step towards one of the most requested features since the birth of Minecraft;

NAME CHANGES!

This version provides complete support for identifying players through unique IDs and not by names, so that no matter what a player is called they will remain banned/whitelisted/oped/etc on servers. Dinnerbone has provided a helpful FAQ on what all this means:

Dinnerbone said:

If I ban a player “Foo” and he changes name to “Bar”, will he stay banned?
Yes. Same for whitelisted players and oped players. They also keep their inventory, pets, statistics and everything they own on a server.

Can I steal somebody’s name? Can I call myself “Dinnerbone” too?
No. I am Dinnerbone and names are still unique. You cannot have the same name as another player, they will have to change their name for you to be able to take it.

How will this work with mods? What about my custom stuff on this one modded server?
Ask your mod maker/server owner. They should be able to support this system easily, but we aren’t responsible for mods or servers!

Can I already change my name? Where do I go? Will it cost? How often can I do it?
We will enable name changing when we feel that enough users are using 1.8 or higher, so that servers have time to switch to the new player formats. We do not have any details on how name changes will be performed or any restrictions that will be required to actually perform a name change. We want it to be easy and freely available, but we also don’t want people changing their name every 5 minutes!

So where do I change my name?
Read the previous answer!

I’m a server owner, what do I have to do when I update to 1.7.6?
Nothing, really. The server will update itself, but it’s entirely possible that it may require your input if it finds an issue (nonexistant players, for example). If your server fails to start then check the log, otherwise it’s ready to play!

Is this compatible with 1.7.5?
No, sorry. We had to change the protocol to support the new player formats.

I’m scared. I need a hug. Posted Image
Aww, here you go little guy. *hug* Don’t worry, it’s not as scary as it sounds.

This pre-release also comes with a lot more Minecraft Realms improvements, crash fixes, optimizations and general bug fixes.

Please report any and all bugs you find in Minecraft to bugs.mojang.com. If nobody reports a bug, Mojang can’t fix it!

To get pre-releases, open your launcher and press the “New Profile” button. Call it “pre-releases” and check the box saying “Enable experimental development snapshots”, select the version from the dropdown and save. To switch to the normal version, you can select it in the dropdown at the bottom left corner of the launcher. Back up your world first or run the game on in a different folder (See the “new profile” dialog).
Snapshots and pre-releases can corrupt your world, please backup and/or run them in a different folder from your main worlds.

Cross-platform server jar: https://s3.amazonaws....1.7.6-pre1.jar
