Minecon, Minecraft Updates & More

Minecraft Land Generation, Revisited

Are you a fan of how terrain used to be generated, with massive mountain ranges, hills and more height variety? Jeb is hard at work on land generation, with the intent of having land generation be more varied in a future release. Not as much a fan of massive, hilly landscapes - or would you at least like an option for flat plains, for easier building? Not to worry, he is working on adding that as an option as well, which you can use at will. Whether you're a fan of rolling mountains or rolling plains, the power to exercise some control over land generation is not far off.

Minecon, from Mojang's Perspective

We attended Minecon alongside thousands of players and their families, and it was certainly an event to remember. We had a chance to show you the convention from our perspective, and now Mojang would like to show you theirs - with their own photo album! They took pics of everything from the setting up of the con, numerous shots of attendees who met with them, booths they went by, and so much more. It's a fascinating look into the convention from the hosters' perspective, and one not to be missed.

If you look really hard, you can even see your favorite content writer.

Additionally, Mojang is looking for your feedback on Minecon! What did you think of the convention? Where would you like to see the next Minecon hosted? You can let them know right here!
