About Minecraft

Minecraft has been around for over 8 years now, released in May of 2009, the very title of Minecraft is pretty universally known Whoever you ask whether they have played it or not, have probably at least heard of the game But in recent years, things have begun to get a bit confusing There’s Minecraft, which is the PC/Java version of the game But then there’s Pocket Edition, Windows 10 Edition, Switch Edition, xBox 1 Edition, and the list goes on (must be long) But just recently, It was announced that some pretty major changes were gonna be happening with Minecraft’s naming scheme along with a few other things So, today I’ll be covering what those are, and giving my thought on the matter So let’s go ahead and let’s get right into it! Intro Sooo, understanding Minecraft’s name change is actually quite simple. Versions of Minecraft that are multiplayer cross compatible with each other, and that use the new Coin Store, will now have any subtitle dropped from their name, and just be called Minecraft.

That way, you know it’s one of the cross compatible versions, rather than having to awkwardly say “The Windows 10 Pocket Edition version!” Any version of Minecraft that isn’t cross compatible in this manner, namely the Java Edition of Minecraft, will have a new subtitle added to it’s name, and will now be named Minecraft Java Edition For the non cross compatible versions of the game, things are changing much aside from that. But for the cross compatible versions that are now just named Minecraft, things are changing quite a lot. So let’s get into what some of those changes are. So, first up, any cross compatible version of Minecraft will now be using what’s called the “Bedrock Engine.” So, if you hear that term thrown around, that’s why So, what are we getting with this update?

Well, first up, Minecraft for the Nintendo Switch, and the Xbox 1, will become a cross compatible version of the game, and will be able to play online with everyone who owns a cross combatible version of the game But, how useful could that really be without the Java Edition level of servers? Well, that takes me to our next point This version of Minecraft, is getting proper servers. Now, I know what a lot of you are probably thinking. “Will we be able to design servers as freely and easily as we can on Minecraft Java Edition?” and, to my knowledge, at least for now, the answer is no. From what I’ve seen, various server hosts like Mineplex, have teamed up with Microsoft and Mojang to bring the full sever experience to cross compatible Minecraft.

Meaning if you’re on Xbox 1, you’ll be able to join, complex multi-network servers with Nintendo Switch players, phone and Windows 10 players, and even other Xbox 1 players, and actually be on the same physically server! It’ll be extremely interesting to see where things go from here, my big hope is that the cross compatible versions will continue to expand to other operating systems Like previous versions of Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux (cool) and that we might even be able to host cross compatible servers at home one day. We’ll see where things go though and just to be clear for all you Java Edition fans out there, it’s been made extremely clear to me that not only is Java Edition not stopping development by any means but it’s actually expanding.

More and more people are being hired on for it Which is awesome! It really seems like the right move is being made here. Microsoft and Mojang don’t want to controversially change their original version, and instead leave things like the coin store to cross compatible versions of the game There’s a lot more thoughts on the matter that I have, but I wanted to reserve this video, for just briefly touching on what’s going on, and a few things to expect for the future of Minecraft. So, let me know what your thoughts are in the comment section down below. But anyways guys, that just about does it for me for now.

If you enjoyed this video, please consider leaving a like on it because it would really help out myself, the channel and the video quite a lot So, I hope you all enjoyed. My name is AntVenom, and I bid you all farewell! Thanks so much for watching!

Minecraft focuses on allowing the player to explore, interact with, and modify a dynamically-generated map made of one-cubic-meter-sized blocks. In addition to blocks, the environment features plants, mobs, and items. Some activities in the game include mining for ore, fighting hostile mobs, and crafting new blocks and tools by gathering various resources found in the game.

The game’s open-ended model allows players to create structures, creations and artwork on various multiplayer servers or their own single player maps. Other features include redstone circuits for logic computations and remote actions, minecarts and tracks, and a mysterious underworld called the Nether. Ultimately, the completely optional goal of the game is to travel to an alternate dimension called the End, and defeat the Ender Dragon.

Minecraft: 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Fireworks

Disclaimer: You Might Know Some Of These If So, Give Yourself A High-5! :]
THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT FIREWORKS Firework rockets have some cool interactions with nether portals.. Let’s try something.. What will happen if you shoot a firework rocket directly into the nether portal? It will actually go through the portal into the nether!
From there it’ll act like a normal rocket and explode in air! :] There’s lots of ways to create a firework. Firework Rockets are given their effects through firework stars. Each firework star can be made using multiple colors. This one is yellow and red. It can also be given a shape, like a large ball shape for example.. in addition, they can be given the trail or twinkle effects. :] The firework rockets themselves can be made using multiple firework stars. You can also add different amounts of gunpowder to adjust flight durations. This Results in a huge amount of different possible combinations. Let’s try out this combination! You can actually make 145 vigintillion unique rockets! 144.596.532.472.853.875.918.507.017.587.300.! That’s more than 9000! It was 2012 New Years that inspired Jeb to add fireworks. Jeb, being the lead developer of Minecraft Launching a rocket by hand on top of a wooden pressure plate will activate it.. This is not the case in stone pressure plates. Wooden pressure plates only activate if the firework rocket is launched by hand.
Dispensers firing rockets by any of the pressure plates won’t have any effect..
In the 1.11.1 update, firework was given a new use! Previously, bows we’re used with elytras to fly forever.. Now, flying forever has been made easier using the updated rockets.. However, this update also made the explosion from rockets do damage! You’ll need some good armor and food if you want to keep flying! :]
