Not much going on with Minecraft itself. 1.16.2 is around the corner, with the new Piglin Brute but it isn’t’ out just yet. A couple more snapshots and we’ll be golden. Some speculation has gone on about 1.17, but it is pure speculation. Most players want a Cave Update, as that is the most popular suggestion on the Minecraft Feedback page. For more than a few months, Mojang has ignored it. Could that be evidence towards its acknowledgment, or am I looking too deep into it?
Seems like the players are pretty vocal about what they want, but to what avail? You can vote on suggestions and even give your own on the Minecraft Feedback page here
In a somewhat spontaneous way, Mojang has announced a Summer Sale on their marketplace for the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft! Between July 3rd – July 13th, you can snag over 70 items, skins, and maps on sale with each day having two items on 75% off. On top of this, there’s a free map that you can snag for free, along with a free emote!
Something amazing has sprouted in the Minecraft community, yet again. But first, some context! Basically, here in the United States we have the 1st Amendment, which allows freedom of speech and press.
In many countries, social media, websites and blogs are all controlled by oppressive leaders. People are forced to grow up with their opinions manipulated by governmental disinformation campaigns, as put by the RSF (Reporters Without Borders) on their website.
To counter these immoral acts, the RSF has found a loophole within Minecraft that allows them to share the informative articles, blogs, texts, and press that are censored in less fortunate countries. They have created the Uncensored Library, a public server and map download that houses a mass of information and publications in all different languages in the form of books in-game! This is all organized in a massive beautiful building with different sections for different countries.
You can play on the Uncensored Library on 1.14.4 on the IP: visit.uncensoredlibrary.com or you can get the map download on their website.
Our development team has been hard at work to bring new updates and features to our services both internal and external. Below are the public facing updates which may impact you and your experience with Apex Hosting.
Sadly, that’s all I have for you all today. I think that we can all agree that this week was pretty packed! A new mob (although it’s a variant), a new DLC for Dungeons, and a historical adventure reaches an epic conclusion! What more could you ask for from Mojang and the Minecraft community? Definitely pleased. In summary, thanks for catching up with us and I hope you have a great day!
