Minecraft Updates

LodestoneHello everyone! No snapshot for this week, so you don’t have anything to worry about. Although, you still get to enjoy 1.16.2, along with that shmexy Piglin Brute.
Mojang has officially labeled the Lodestone as the ‘block of the week.’ Do anything you would like with this information.
Next, Minecraft posted a very interesting piece on their website which explained the history of Minecraft multiplayer, which just recently reached its 10th birthday! For over a decade, we have mined together. We griefed together. We formed communities together. We’ve beaten the End together. And now, unto the breach, we’ll continue to do so in the future. If you’d like to see all this history, reiterated by Matthew Miller here.

Apex Hosting News

Once again, I bring you news from all staff members who tolerate me. It’s a bit short today, but I did my best.

Elias: recently purchased an RTX 2080 graphics card. May they receive 60fps on every game from here on out.

Dave (myself): playing For Honor a lot more recently. It’s a fun game, and I like beating up people as Shugoki. Then again, it isn’t more fun than Minecraft.

Kevin: a new hire here at Apex. He’ll do great things, and we have big plans for him.

John: Made a very cool animation dubbed ‘Herobrine Life Part 1’ which is a very cool video, showcasing his awesome skills! Give it a watch here.

Community Gulp

Have you ever wanted to use a computer in Minecraft? Have you ever wanted to play the original Doom in Minecraft? With this mod made by the Minecraft community, VM vm-computersComputers allows you to create and run a virtual machine in-game!

With this mod, you can order and run a Windows 95 operating system in-game with no strings attached! With some fiddling, the community has even been able to run a classic such as Doom on the computer. With enough fiddling, you might even be able to play Minecraft within Minecraft! Mods like these show the ingenuity and imagination of the community.


Now, we once again come to a close. This week, we didn’t have so much news on Minecraft itself, but that isn’t so bad. No news means no issues! Multiplayer in Minecraft is a decade old, and I don’t know whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing. The office is slow today, so not much going on there. The changelog gives us some good info on what’s being changed, as usual. And lastly, I bring you an awesome mod that changes the game entirely! In my opinion, it’s the coolest thing I’ve shown you guys yet! With that said, I don’t have much left for you all, so have a great day!
