  • Hardcore World Turned Survival
    • I’ve been trying to slightly reframe the way I look at YouTube and building in general. I love telling stories, and have been using this story of interconnected characters and planets, called the Fixxiverse to tell a MCU like story
    • Inspired by the Citadel, in wanting to build different styles, so when starting my Hardcore world, decided to write a story that brought our hero from a medieval to future technology in 10,000 days.
  • Animated Lore
    • I’ve actually been animating short lore segments in every video with some of my friends doing voice acting and using my actual Minecraft worlds as backdrops. It’s been incredibly fulfilling!

SUBJECT: Elytra Customization

Hello Spawn Chunks! 

I just found your podcast recently and I’m really enjoying it.

I was listening to the episode where you discussed armor trims and the potential of customizing elytra, and I was thinking, what about banners for customizing elytra? Something like combining a banner, and an elytra in a crafting table, which would put that banner pattern on the elytra wings. Banners can already be placed on shields in Java Edition, and capes which are a similar shape to elytra can already give the elytra a pattern. It makes sense to me because the elytra seems to be a kind of fabric or skin substance, so I think adding cloth to it to make a pattern makes more sense than using the armor trim.

FlowerField02 crashed into a wall while trying to see what her elytra looked like.

Thank you to our Patrons!

Archeology Is Coming To Minecraft 1.20

This week Mojang Studios announced that the archeology game play mechanic will be included in Minecraft Update 1.20 expected later this year. Iterations of the new feature will be accessible in upcoming Update 1.20 snapshots. Joel, and Fixxitt speculate on what Minecraft players might expect to get out of archeology, and share some hopes for potential features they feel will help archeology reach more players.
