Build your own Minion! Minecraft Designs

Hi guys! As promised in our last video, here are the designs we based our Minecraft Minion Zone on, if you want to give it a try building your own Minecraft Minion.

We picked these ideas / designs up from Pinterest – you can search for Minecraft designs, but can also use ones for Hama beads or even cross-stitch patterns, as they all use a grid to make the picture, which makes it really easyΒ  for counting the blocks and building in Minecraft.

The designs we used in the video are:

You can see that some of the images have website names on where you can get other templates / designs like these if you want to search for them.

In the video, you will see that we’ve kept our designs pretty simple and based of these pictures, but if you wanted to you could make the Minion faces into 3D block heads, like you get in Minecraft, just by continuing the build out in a cube shape. Here are a couple of AMAZING images of Minecraft Minions we found when we were searching for designs! Definitely something for us to try in the future, but I bet these took longer than 20 minutes to build! πŸ˜€

Maker’s Spleef aka ‘Arrow Fail’ (Tried and Tested #9)

It’s been a while hasn’t it? Sorry for the lack of videos, but laptop gave up and it’s taken a while to get up and running again… hopefully, we’ll be caught up soon and have some fun new videos to watch and games for you to try out.

On that note, take a look at the latest Minecraft Realms minigame we’ve been playing – Maker’s Spleef!

“What is a ‘spleef’?” You might ask… well, I had to anyway…

A spleef is a game where you beat your opponent by knocking out the blocks underneath them and send them to their doom! Or in this case, drop them on to turquoise wool – it is apparently, very strange and dangerous wool that kills you in Minecraft.

Melvis really doesn’t do so well when it comes to the arrow round – and the ‘insane’ mode is truly bonkers, we couldn’t work out what was happening except that we kept dying. So, check out the latest video and let us know whether you think you would make better ‘spleefers’ than we did! πŸ™‚

How do I make the dyes in Minecraft?

Quick post here for you to accompany our latest Minecraft Realms survival video, where we make the world a nicer and brighter place, by dying all the sheep in a rainbow of colours!

Most of the colours are made simply using your crafting table, with a few like ‘cactus green’ needing you to put the cactus cubes in the furnace first, to extract the colour.

Rainbow Baaaaaa-rbers!! (We-Game Realms #7)

Red and yellow and pink and green…

Welcome back to our Realms survival world, where we are making the world a brighter, more colourful and fluffy place…

Yes, that’s right – today we’re getting creative with dyes and changing the bland, lackluster appearance of our normal sheep and making them all colourful and beautiful – then we’re stealing their wool to make rugs 😦

Don’t worry, they won’t be too cold for long, the lovely colours will grow back pretty quick!

It’s TNT Run!! (Tried and Tested #8)

Today’s video is the latest in our Tried and Tested series and we’re playing the Minecraft Minigame β€˜TNT Run!’

As simple as it sounds really – there’s TNT and you’ve got to run to avoid being taken out by it! You and your opponents run across the same floor, which is rigged with TNT beneath the normal looking blocks – once stepped on, the block disappears and if you’re still standing there you disappear too!! Think about it as explosive quick sand and you’ll soon get the idea – stay in the game the longest and you win.

If you want to try this for yourself you can find several similar games on popular Minecraft servers or get it automatically in the Minecraft Realms mini-game section, which is where we played it from. Enjoy!

Tried and Tested (#7) ‘The Present Factory’

Today’s video is the latest in our Tried and Tested series and we’re playing the Minecraft Minigame ‘The Present Factory’.

The goal in this game is to arrange blocks on a factory floor in such a way that you turn a series of inputs (stacks of presents) into a desired series of outputs at the other side of the room. For instance, you might have a system that only sends presents to the output if they are larger than the previous stack, or one that only sends the largest stack of presents. There are a whole range of custom ‘conveyor belt’ blocks in this minigame, which you use to move and sort the presents in various ways to solve the puzzle.

There are apparently 20 puzzles of more-or-less increasing difficulty, starting at the absolutely easy first puzzle and ending at the fiendishly difficult twentieth puzzle – we made it quickly through the first few as you’ll see and then had to work our brains REALLY hard to get through the next couple that we tried off camera! πŸ™‚ You’ll need you brains in full gear for this one…

That said, if any of the puzzles prove too difficult for you, there is a built-in hint system which will provide you two hints per puzzle, as well as a free solution if one is required. There’s no shame in using a free solution (or so we told ourselves).

If you want to try this for yourself you can find more information on the map here, or find it automatically in the Minecraft Realms mini-game section, which is where we played it from. Enjoy!
