Joel addresses an important artistic point brought up in Chunk Mail and Pixlriffs leads a discussion on Minecraft generated structures. From villages to woodland mansions, jungle temples and shipwrecks, we discuss current structures and speculate on new ones.

This bit of MINECON news dropped immediately after we finished recording The Spawn Chunks this week. We wanted to include a link to it in the show notes and let everyone know that we will add it as a news topic to discuss next week on the show for Episode 8.

Chunk Mail

Hi Pixlriffs – Hi Joel It is interesting to listen to artists talk about color temperature and of course you guys know all about that stuff, but I doubt a fisherman building his fishing hut would care and would use whatever blocks are available. I think in Minecraft it is easy to caught up in aesthetics, and we forget the practical realism that also exists in the world. Things don’t always match, and I feel that should be represented in the world as well. A fishing village is a working town, and you are going to have some mismatch in the structures because the fisherman are going to use what is available. In addition to cobble a coral block here and there would probably be something you would find. Love the show. Richard C.
