WE TRIED TO CRAM AS MUCH AS WE COULD INTO ONE VIDEO AND IT IS STILL A LONG VIDEO BUT SO MUCH GOOD STUFF IN THERE. LET’S TAKE A LOOK! LONG VIDEO BH GOOD STUFF IN THERE. LET’S TAKE A LOOK! >> WOW! I MEAN THAT IS A LOT OF STUFF CRAMMED INTO A VIDEO THERE. AND EVEN THERE WAS SOME STUFF YOU GUYS WERE LIKE WHAT? DID THAT HAPPEN? DO WE PLAY? >> DO WE EVEN PLAY THIS GAME? >> I’M NOT CONVINCED. >> WHAT THINGS DIDN’T YOU KNOW ABOUT? >> THE LAST PART WITH THE STRING. >> HOW DOES THAT WORK? >> PUT IT ON THE COBBLESTONE AND CREATES LIKE FERNS — FENCES AND WE HAD NO IDEA YOU CAN DO THIS. >> JUST HOW BIG THE GAME IS. EVEN PEOPLE WHO DO IT 24/7? >> WE LIVE ON IT AND WE STILL DON’T KNOW EVERYTHING. >> WHAT WERE THE BIG THINGS FOR YOU OUT OF THE VIDEO? >> ONE OF THE CLIPS WAS FROM OUR FRIEND STACY PLAYS AND WE ARE ON HER SERVER WHICH IS VANILLA AND EXPLORES THE AQUATIC UPDATES.

THE CLIP TRYING TO GET THE DOLPHIN BACK IN THE WATER BECAUSE SHE THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO DIE ON LAND. THAT IS HILARIOUS. THAT SERVER AND EXPLORER ALL STUFF THAT LIKE I HAD NO IDEA ABOUT. LIKE THE TRIDENTS AND THE DOLPHINS AND BREEDING TURTLES AND LIKE WAITING FOR TURTLES TO HATCH. AND IT HAS BEEN AWESOME. LIKE THAT WHOLE UPDATE IS AWESOME.

>> YEAH. YOU HAD FUN. >> I DIDN’T PLAY MUCH REGULAR VANILLA MINECRAFT. THIS IS REALLY, AND LIKE YOU SAID THE THING WITH TURTLES WE HAD THE SAME STRUGGLE WE DIDN’T KNOW THEY HATCHED AT NIGHT. WE WERE TRYING TO HATCH THE TURTLES AND THEY DIDN’T DO IT AND WERE SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT. >> DID YOU LIKE SIT ON YOURS, TOO? >> I THOUGHT YOU COULD WARM THEM AND CRACK THEM AND IS THE ON THEM ENOUGH, AND IT BREAKS THEM AND THEY DIE. TRAUMATIZING. >> IT’S A LEARNING CURVE. > I MEAN THE FIRST TIME WHEN WE LOOKED THROUGH THE VIDEO YOU GOT A BIT TOO EXCITED. >> WHY — YOU WERE LIKE IT’S LIKE A GAME CHANGER. I’M LIKE OUT OF ALL OF THE THINGS? REALLY? OKAY. >> THE NEW MOBS AND THINGS ADDED.

TO PUT CHESTS NEXT TO EACH OTHER. I’M REALLY ABOUT BUILDING. >> HE IS LIKE O ORGANIZATION IS KEY. >> THE BEST THING. >> I’M TERRIBLE AT ORGANIZING THEM AND I’M BAD AT BUILDING. NOT BEING ABLE TO PUT THE CHESTS NEXT TO EACH OTHER I HAD TO TAKE UP MORE ROOM. I HAVE HAVE THE BUILDING AND THE FUNCTIONALIT. >> OF THE COOL FIN DOLPHINS AND YOU ARE LIKE LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT CHESTS. WHAT ABOUT THE SWITCH UPDATE? THAT IS COOL. >> IT IS DOING MORE CROSS PLATFORM. WE ARE SEEING MORE AND MORE AND JUST AWESOME AND BRINGS LIKE YOU TOGETHER WITH A BUNCH OF OTHER PEOPLE THAT MAYBE DOESN’T HAVE A PC BUT CAN STILL PLAY ON THE SWITCH. >> THE SWITCH THING ESPECIALLY BECAUSE IT IS PORTABLE AND YOU CAN TAKE IT ON THE GO. THE FIRST TIME I GOT ACCESS I WAS ABOUT TO FLY HOME AND I WAS LIKE SWEET. I DOWNLOADED MINECRAFT ON THE SWITCH. YOU CAN CARRY IT WITH YOU AND PLAY WITH FRIENDS ON OTHER. >> YOU NOT ONLY PLAY AT HOME BUT ALSO OUTSIDE THE HOUSE AND YOU ARE STILL TERRIBLE AT BUILDING. WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR TIME? >> I CAN’T SAY I’M NOT CREATIVE.

I UPLOAD A VIDEO EVERY DAY. I’M JUST BAD AT BUILDING. >> HE IS LIKE LOOK AT ALL THIS STUFF I GOT. I SPENT LIKE THREE EPISODES BUILDING MY HOUSE. AND HE LIKE I BUILT THIS LITTLE THING, IT’S FINE. NOT GOING TO WIN ANY DESIGN AWARDS. >> IT IS KIND OF LIKE COLLABORATION THINGS AND PEOPLE USING MINECRAFT. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT? MINECRAFT IS SO BIG IT TRANSCENDS A LOT NOW. >> IT IS CRAZY HOW BIG IT STILL IS. >> YES! >> STILL SO BIG. THE ADVENTURE TIME. I ACTUALLY DID NOT KNOW ABOUT, AND I WAS FREAKING OUT ABOUT IT AND NOW I HAVE TO SEE THAT EPISODE. IT IS AWESOME TO SEE MORE — IT IS LIKE STILL IN THE MAINSTREAM AND PEOPLE OH, YEAH, THAT IS MINECRAFT. >> ESPECIALLY A TEST MENT TO THE COMMUNITY AS WELL. WITH SOMETHING THAT MINE CRAFT THAT BECAME INCREDIBLE CROSSROAD POPULAR AND THINGS WRITTEN LIKE THE GARDEN AND PAPERS AND TV AND PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT THAT.

NORMALLY WHEN THAT HAPPENS IT IS THE PEAK OF A GAME AND THEN DISAPPEARS. BUT IT JUST KEPT GOING. TESTAMENT TO THE COMMUNITY THAT EVERYONE GETS ON AND SUCH A SORT OF SPECIAL PLACE THAT PEOPLE WANT TO KEEP COMING BACK AND KEEP BUILDING. >> YEAH, I MEAN I THINK BECAUSE OF THE AMOUNT OF POSSIBILITIES IN THE GAME, LIKE EVEN LIKE BASE GAME LIKE WAY BACK IN THE EARLIER VERSIONS LIKE YOU COULD DO SO MUCH WITH THE GAME YOU WERE NEVER BORED. YOU COULD DO SOMETHING OR FIND A MAP THAT SOMEONE MADE TO PLAY OR THE STORY ELEMENTS. PEOPLE MAKE LIKE CUT SCENES USING LIKE STONE. IT IS LIKE I PLAYED THROUGH MAPS WITH SEGMENTS AND I’M LIKE WHAT IS GOING ON? >> IT’S LIKE GETTING SO INSANELY CRAZY BUT LIKE IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY, RIGHT? >> OH, YEAH. >> WHAT WERE THE THINGS YOU HAVE SEEN? >> FROM THE CLIPS OR IN GENERAL. >> JUST IN GENERAL. >> THERE WAS A SEGMENT THAT LOOK THE LIKE IT TURNED MINECRAFT INTO LIKE A COOKING GAME.

IT WAS LIKE YOU NEED TO GET CARROTS AND THEY RUN INTO THE KITCHEN AND GET CARROTS AND BRING IT BACK. LIKE TURNING ONE GAME INTO SO MANY OTHER GAMES THAT LIKE I THINK THAT IS WHY IT IS STILL TO THIS DAY LIKE EVERYBODY WANTS TO PLAY AND CROSS-PLATFORM AND THEY KEEP ADDING THINGS. IT IS NEVER THE SAME AND WE HAVE SO MANY DIFFERENT SERIES AND SEVERS. DIFFERENT EVERY SINGLE TIME. >> QUITE AMAZING REALLY. WHAT WE SHOULD PROBABLY DO IS TALK ABOUT TODAY’S AGENDA.

THERE IS SO MUCH STUFF COMING UP. LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY. WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF THE PRESHOW AND AT NOON TOPPING OFF, NOT TOO LONG A TIME GOING TO THE MAIN STAGE FOR THE FULL MINECON EARTH. I’M EXCITED IF THERE IS LIKE A MUSICAL NUMBER AT THE END LIKE LAST YEAR BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE HILARIOUS AND WONDERFUL. MAYBE FIRE JUGGLING. I DON’T KNOW. AT THE POST SHOW BACK STAGE AND VERY SPECIAL GUESTS TO DE-CONSTRUCT WHAT HAPPENED AND TALK ABOUT WHAT WENT ON, ON STAGE. AND 2:05. A DEVELOPER PANEL. ANY OF THE KIND OF LIKE REALLY SUPER NERDY NITTY GRITTY STUFF ABOUT THE GAME THAT YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW THEY WILL TOUCH UPON ALL OF THAT TO GO DEEP BELOW THE SURFACE OF MINECRAFT THERE. AND THEN AT MYSELF AND LYDIA WRAPPING UP THE WHOLE OF MINECON. LOADS OF STUFF. THAT IS STILL TO COME UP.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST THINGS THAT HAPPENS EVERY YEAR AT MINECON IS THE BIOME UPDATES. FANTASTIC STUFF LAST YEAR, BUT NOW, THIS YEAR WE HAVE GOT THREE TO PICK FROM. AND OBVIOUSLY WE ARE CHOOSING THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY WILL BE UPDATED. THREE TO LOOK AT. SAVANNAH. WE HAVE EMUS AS YOU CAN SEE. THE TREE, WHICH IS THE SUPER WEIRD LIKE TREE IN THE BACKGROUND.

AND WE ALSO HAVE TERMITE MOUNDS WHICH THEY EAT DEAD PLANTS IS WHAT I HEARD. >> RIGHT. >> OH. >> HOW DO WE FEEL ABOUT THE SAVANNAH? >> I MEAN — >> SORRY, AN OSTRICH. NOT AN EMU. I THOUGHT IT WAS THE SAME THING. >> I WILL SAY NO. >> NO. >> ALL RIGHT. I KNOW BIRDS REALLY WELL. LAUGH. >> I CAN TELL. >> HOW DO WE FEEL ABOUT THIS ONE? >> FIRST OFF, I HOPE YOU CAN RIDE THE EMU OSTRICH THING.

>> YES. >> I REALLY HOPE FOR THAT. AND ALSO, I’M KIND OF SAD THAT — IF IT IS ONLY DEAD PLANTS AND TREES BECAUSE I WAS KIND OF HOPING TO LIKE USE THAT TO LIKE PRANK PEOPLE AND PUT THEM IN HOUSES AND HAVE THEM EAT IT. >> THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT THING. WE PLAY DIFFERENT GAMES. >> YEAH, YEAH. >> WHAT IT YOU THINK? >> IT IS INTERESTING TO ME. I’M NOT CREATIVE AND BAD AT BUILDING THE WAY THE PICTURE OF THE TREE LOOKS THE STUMP LOOKS LIKE A DOOR AND I WAS LIKE THAT WAS A GREAT TREEHOUSE. >> I SAW THAT. >> IF THAT COMES THROUGH — >> I’M NOT GETTING IN A TREEHOUSE YOU BUILT, THOUGH. >> IT WILL BE BUILT WITH CHESTS. >> IT WILL BE AN ASSORTMENT OF CHESTS. >> RROOM FOR ALL YOUR THINGS. >> INSINUATING THAT THE TREE IS BIG ENOUGH THAT YOU COULD BUILD INTO IT LIKE A CAVE. >> MAYBE. GETTING REALLY INTO IT. >> WE NEED TO FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION. WE HAVE LIGHT INFORMATION RIGHT NOW. THE SECOND IS DESERT. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THAT ONE. SO HERE WE ARE SO IN DESERT WE HAVE AN OASIS, OF COURSE.

PALM TREES AND MEERKATS. I REALLY LIKE THE BACKGROUND BECAUSE IT’S HOT. >> YEAH, YEAH, YEAH. >> WHAT DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS? ANY KIND OF THINGS THAT GRAB YOU ABOUT IT. >> THE MEERKAT. I WANT THE MEERKAT. I’M WONDERING IF THEY WILL BE TUNNELING UNDERGROUND AND FIND THEM UNDERGROUND WHEN YOU ARE GOING OR IF YOU CAN TAME THEM. I’M GOING TO SAY NO, BUT Y I’M GOING TO TRY AND LASSONLY THEM AND BRING THEM BACK. >> THE DESERT HAS SO MUCH COOL STUFF IN IT TO MAKE IT MORE VIABLE TO GO THROUGH. A HUGE SELLING POINT FOR ME. I LOVE ANIMALS AND I’M A BIG ADVOCATE FOR PUTTING MORE IN IT.

>> I MEAN YOU CAN SEE HE IS DOING IT WHERE THEY STAND ON THE BAG LEGS AND LACK OUT. >> THEY COULD WARN OF DANGER. >> HE HOPE THERE IS LIKE — I HOPE THERE IS PACKS OF HUNDREDS. >> THAT WOULD BE AMAZING. >> THE FINAL IS TIGER. THIS LACKS SPECIAL. LOOK AT THIS, GUYS. >> IT IS A GOOD ONE. >> AND BERRY BUSHES AS WELL AS YOU CAN SEE THERE AND CAMP FIRES ALSO. THIS IS PRETTY. I LAKE THIS ONE. LOOK AT THE SHOOTING STARS. >> I’M ALL OVER THAT. I LIKE GALAXY STUFF. >> IT’S COOL. WHAT DO YOU FEEL? >> IT’S THE FOX — THERE IS OTHER THINGS. I’M KIND OF WONDERING IF THE CAMP FIRE IS GOING TO BE FUNCTIONAL, TOO. CAN I ACCESS RIGHTS THINGS ON IT? >> THAT WOULD BE COOL. >> IF I COULD COOK MEAT OVER THE TOP OF THE CAMP FIRE INSTEAD OF HAVING TO HAVE A FURNACE NEVER WHERE.

FOXES. BIG FAN. >> IF I HAVE TO PUSH TO COMMIT TO ONE THAT IS YOUR FAVORITE, WHAT WOULD IT BE? >> I MEAN I KNOW MINE. >> I KNOW WHAT YOURS IS. >> I KNOW MINE IS THE TIGER. A BIG TIGER ADVOCATE AND FOXES. THE CAMP FIRES ARE AWESOME AND BERRY BUSHES IS A COOL ADDITION AS WELL. ALL TOGETHER, THAT WOULD BE AMAZING.

I’M A BIG TIGER FAN. >> TIGERS. >> GO, TIGERS! >> GO, TIGERS. >> I DO LIKE THAT BIOME BUT I WILL GO A LITTLE DIFFERENT. WHILE LOOKING AT THEM SOMEBODY BROUGHT UP THE POINT THAT THE DESERT BIOME HAS NOTHING RIGHT NOW. GO THERE AND GOT TO GO ACROSS IT AND MAYBE GET SAND AND THEN YOU ARE DONE. ADDING ANYTHING TO THE BIOME WOULD BE GREAT. SO LIKE THE MEERKAT, THE TREES AND OASIS. I’M ALL OVER THAT. >> I THINK I’M DOWN FOR THAT. I LIKE THE IDEA OF PUTTING TERMITE MOUNDS NEAR THE HOUSES AND DESTROYING THINGS. SORRY, DID I DROP THAT NEAR YOUR HOUSE? >> I DIDN’T MEAN TO, BUT REALLY I DID. >> BUT YOU LOVEBIRDS. >> AND I CAN DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT SPECIES OF BIRDS. TODAY DURING MINECON EARTH OUR BIOME CORRESPONDENT MR. VU WILL BE SHOWING YOU WHEN YOU CAN VOTE. GO TO TWITTER TO THE MINECRAFT TWITTER PAGE AND THERE IS A PINNED POLL AT THE TOP.

PEOPLE ARE FEELING — LIKE THERE IS NOT SO MUCH TO DO NOW. I THINK IT DESERVES AN UPDATE. >> YEAH. THEN MAYBE THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED. >> BUT BECAUSE THEY DON’T EXPERIENCE IT MUCH. I WOULD RATHER HAVE ONE I USE MORE UPDATE THE. BOTH GOOD ARGUMENTS. I THINK DESERT COULD GO FIRST. >> WOULD YOU AGREE? >> I HAVE A FEELING IT MIGHT GO FIRST. BUT I REALLY WANT IT! I MEAN I’M GLAD ALL OF THEM ARE HAPPENING EVENTUALLY. >> YEAH. >> I WOULD LIKE THAT ONE OF THE TOP TWO, PLEASE.

I CAME TO TALK ABOUT A WORLD WE MADE CALLED INSPIRATION ISLAND AND IT FOCUSES ON CREATIVE MODE.

TALKING ABOUT HOW WHEN PEOPLE START PLAYING MINECRAFT THEY CAN BE INTIMIDATED BECAUSE THEY SEE AMAZE THINGS BEING BUILD ONLINE AND NOT REALLY SURE WITH ARE TO START OR MAYBE — WHERE TO START OR MAYBE WANT AN IDEA WHAT TO BUILD TODAY.

I’M VUI BUI AND I WILL BE YOUR VOTE CORRESPONDENT.

WE WILL BRINGING YOU THE MINECRAFT COMMUNITY DIRECTLY IN THE DECISION-MAKING ABOUT WHAT GOES INTO THE GAME YOU LOVE. THIS YEAR YOU WILL BE VOTING ON WHAT MINECRAFT BIOME WILL BE UPDATED NEXT. WE WILL EVENTUALLY BE UPDATING ALL OF THEM. BUT AS YOU KNOW, GAME DEVELOPMENT TAKES SKILL, KNOWLEDGE AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY, TIME. SO WITH THIS VOTE, YOUR FAVORITE BIOME GETS TO BE DEVELOPED.

LAST YEAR YOU VOTE THE FOR THE PHANTOM. MONTHS LATER AND THE MONSTER OF THE NIGHT SKIES WAS SWOOPING DOWN AND WREAKING HAVOC AND PREVIOUSLY FEARLESS BUT EVER SLEEP-DEPRIVED PLAYERS. THE SAME THAT FELT THAT ZOMBIES, SPIDERS, SELL TONS ENDERMAN AND CREEPERS DIDN’T POSE ENOUGH OF A THREAT TO END THEIR MIDNIGHT WANDERINGS. I WAS ENJOYING A NOCTURNAL SWITCH AND THOUGHT IT WAS HILARIOUS THAT PHANTOMS COULDN’T BITE ME FROM THE AQUATIC POSITION. AS I SWAM FURTHER AND FURTHER I WAS SWARMED AS NEW PHANTOMS JOINED FRIENDS AND TOOK TURNS SWOOPING DOWN OVERHEAD. LET’S JUST SAY IT DIDN’T END WELL FOR ME THAT NIGHT. ON TO TODAY’S VOTE. TO EXPLAIN WHAT YOU WILL BE VOTING ON EXACTLY, LET’S HAVE TINY DIGITAL YENZ AND AGNES TAKE IT AWAY.

>> THE DESERTS ALWAYS FELT A LITTLE. >> IN NEED OF REFRESHMENT. NO, IN NEED OF PALM TREES AND AND SOMETHING TO KEEP IT INTERESTING. YOU KNOW THAT MEERKATS AREN’T ACTUALLY CATS, RIGHT? >> EVERYONE KNOWS THAT MEERKATS ARE PART OF THE MONGOOSE FAMILY. >> TO THE TIGER. TO THE TIGER! >> THERE IS NOTHING QUITE AS SWEDISH AS EATING FRESH BERRIES? >> OR ENJOYING FRESHLY CRAFTED CAMP FIRE. >> AND SURROUNDED BY ONE OR TWO OR FIVE FOXES? THE FOXES AREN’T PLANNED TO BE A HOSTILE MOB, RIGHT? >> WE HAVEN’T DECIDED YET. >> ONWARDS! YAY, THEY ARE THE BEST TREES. >> YOU AND YOUR BAYOU BABBS. CREATED TREES WITH A SILLY NAME. >> STILL COOLER THAN TERMITES. >> THE WAY TO SNACK ON DECOMPOSING PLANTS. NEITHER COMPARE TO THE WONDER THAT IS THE OSTRICH. >> HELLO? SO IT’S UP TO YOU TO DECIDE WHICH BIOME WE UPDATE FIRST. >> THANKS. AREN’T THEY JUST ADORABLE? OKAY. SO HOW YOU WILL VOTE. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A TWITTER ACCOUNT.

AND GO TO THE OFFICIAL MINECRAFT TWITTER @ MINECRAFT. THERE WILL BE TWO SEPARATE VOTES. SO MAKE SURE YOU VOTE IN BOTH. DON’T WORRY, I WILL LET YOU KNOW WHEN THEY GO LIVE. WE AREN’T GETTING STARTED JUST YET. JUST BE SURE YOU ARE READY TO VOTE WHEN THE TIME COMES. AND MAKE YOUR AMAZING CHOICE. >> WELCOME TO TALK AROUND THE BLOCK WITH YOUR COHOST YAMMY! >> HEY, EVERYONE. INAM IS YAMMY AND I STARTED MAKING VIDEOS BACK IN 2011. I LOVE BEING CREATIVE AND I LOVE HAVING FUN. SO TODAY I WILL TALK ABOUT MYSELF AND THEN I’M GOING TO INTRODUCE YOU TO A VERY SPECIAL GUEST.

SO I WENT OUT INTO THE MINECRAFT COMMUNITY AND ASKED WHAT THEY WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT ME HERE IS BA THEY HAD TO SAY. I STARTED PLAYING MINECRAFT BACK IN 2009 AND IT WAS ON BROWSER ONLY. IT WAS JUST CREATIVE MODE AND WE COULD ONLY BUILD HOUSES. I WENT ON THERE AND I WOULD BUILD MY IN REAL LIFE HOUSE ON THE GAME. AND THEN THEY RELEASED MULTIPLAYER WHICH MEANT I COULD DO THIS WITH MY FRIENDS. AND WE ALL MADE TRIAL ACCOUNTS WHICH IS KIND OF NAUGHTY AND THEN WHEN THEY RUN OUT JUST KEEP MAKING TRIAL ACCOUNTS BECAUSE WE COULDN’T AFFORD TO BUY THE GAME. WE WOULD BUILD OUR HOUSES TOGETHER AND ALL BE NEIGHBORS. WHEN I ASKED THE COHOSTS BACK STAGE WHO ST STARTED PLAYING MINECRAFT FIRST. IT IS ME.

I’M A MINECRAFT DINOSAUR. >> I LOVE YOUR VIDEOS. WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO MAKE THE CHANNEL AND KEEP ON CREATING CONTENT? >> I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED GAMING. I HAVE BEEN PLAYING GAMES SINCE I WAS A BABY. I WOULD WATCH MY BROTHER PLAY ON THE MEGA DRIVE AND SIT BEHIND HIM. WHEN I G GOT OLDER AND PLAYED CL OF DUTY, I DECIDED TO TAKE THE IDEA AND PUT IT INTO YOUTUBE AND PEOPLE WOULD WATCH ME PLAY AND I TALKED ABOUT MY LIFE AND SHARED MY EXPERIENCES WITH THEM AND THEY WOULD TALK TO ME ABOUT THEIRS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION. WE MADE A LITTLE COMMUNITY AND ALL FELT LIKE FRIENDS. PEOPLE LOVED WATCHING AND IT WAS SUPER SIMPLE BACK THEN. I DECIDED THAT I WANTED TO MAKE FRIENDS AND CAME ACROSS A GIRL WHO SOUNDED LIKE ME AND LIKED THE SAME GAMES. AND WE HAVE BEEN FRIENDS EVER SINCE. I M MESSAGED HER AND ASKED IF SE WANTED TO BE MY FRIEND AND ADD ME ON SKYPE.

SHE SAIDIA. THROUGH HER I MADE A BUNCH MORE FRIENDS WHO I CREATE CONTENT WITH TODAY. NEXT QUESTION. >> HEY, YAMMY, I WAS WONDERING, DO YOU HAVE ANY PETS? >> I DON’T HAVE A HORSE. BUT I DO HAVE A DOG. I HAD HER FOR SEVEN YEARS AND I HAVE A CAT CALLED MISTY AND SHE WAS SUPER FARRELL AND AFRAID OF PEOPLE AND I HAVE A CAT CALLED ASTRID. SHE IS INDEPENDENT AND I LOVE HER. SHE IS MISTIESY’S TEACHER. AND THE CRAZIEST PET I HAVE IS SONIC THE HEDGEHOG. HE IS SUPER OLD AND HAS ONE TOOTH AND SUPER GRUMPY AS WELL.

BUT I LOVE HIM TO BITS. NEXT QUESTION. >> HEY, YAMMY, MY QUESTION FOR YOU. >> FOR ME, RUNNING MY CHANNEL. I LOVE WHEN I GET MESSAGES FROM PEOPLE SAYING THAT MY VIDEOS HELPED THEM THROUGH A HARD TIME AND THAT WHEN FOR THE 10 MINUTES OR 20 MINUTES WATCHING THE VIDEO THEY CAN SIT BACK AND RELAX AND THINK ABOUT NOTHING ELSE THAN ME BEING SILLY ON MINECRAFT. ANOTHER COOL THING THAT I LOVE IS WHEN I MANAGED TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER. SO A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO I ASKED IF I WANTED TO JOIN MY ROLE PLAY TEAM WERE ABLE TO MEET IN REAL LIFE FOR THE FIRST TIME AT MY MEET AND GREET. THIS WAS EXCITING TO ME AND MADE ME FEEL SO SPECIAL AND REMINDED ME OF WHEN I WAS TRYING TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH LIZZY AND HOW HARD IT WAS. FOR THESE PEOPLE I MADE IT POSSIBLE FOR THEM TO MEET. THAT IS JUST SO COOL. NEXT QUESTION. >> WHEN YOU WERE A KID, WHAT DID YOU WANT TO DO AND WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING NOW IF YOU WEREN’T RUNNING YOUR OWN CHANNEL? >> I WANTED TO BE A TOP STAR, BUT I CAN’T SING.

I’M ACTUALLY TERRIBLE AT SINGING SO I COULDN’T DO THAT. THEN I WANTED TO BE A VET, BUT I DISCOVERED I’M TERRIFIED OF FLOOD SO I WOULD — OF BLOOD. I WANTED TO BE A VET. I WANTED TO BE A JOCKEY BUT WHEN I GOT ON A HORSE I DISCOVRED I WAS TERRIFIED OF HORSES. CAN’T DO THAT EITHER. THEN I WAS, I’M MORE OF A CREE YCREATIVE PERSON. I DON’T TO EXPRESS MYSELF THROUGH WRITING AND DRAWING. I DECIDED I WOULD DO DO ENGLISH LANGUAGE AS A TEACH ESCHE. TEN I HAD TO MAKE THE HARD DECISION OF BE ATTACHER OR DO YOUTUBE. I DECIDED TO DO YOUTUBE IN THE END AND I’M HAPPY THAT I DID. I’M STILL MANAGING TO TEACH PEOPLE TODAY WHICH IS REALLY COOL. EVEN IF I’M TEACHING PEOPLE ABOUT BEING BAD AT MINECRAFT OR HOW TO BUILD A HOUSE I’M STILL TEACHING PEOPLE AND I LOVE THAT. TEACHING OF ANY KIND IS SUPER IMPORTANT. AND NOW I WILL INTRODUCE YOU TO A WOMAN WHO IS CHANGING EVERYBODY’S MIND ABOUT SCIENCE AND LEARNING, SHE’S COMBINING FUN AND EDUCATION TOGETHER. PLEASE PUT YOUR HANDS TOGETHER FOR KATE THE CHEMISTY HOW ARE YOU? >> HEY, KATE.

START BY TELLING WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU DO. >> MY NAME IS DR. KATE BEEBE. A PROFESSOR AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS. I GO ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND TRY TO DO SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS TO GET KIDS EXCITED ABOUT SCIENCE. I’M ON THE MISSION TO PROVE THAT ANYBODY CAN BE A SCIENTIST. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A DORK OR NERD. YOU CAN JUST BE A NORMAL GIRL. >> THIS LOOKS AMAZING THIS IS CALLED ELEPHANT’S TOOTH PASTE. I WANT YOU TO HELP ME WITH IT. SUIT UP FOR ME, PLEASE. >> ELEPHANT’S TOOTH PASTE? >> THIS IS WHAT IT IS CALLED. WE HAVE TO PUT ON THE GOGGLES AND GLOVES AND LAB COAT BECAUSE WE WANT TO BE COMPLETELY SAFE. >> I JUST DROPPED IT. >> PROTECT EVERYTHING. THIS IS CALLED ELEPHANT’S TOGETHER PASTE. HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AND BREAK IT APART USING A CATALYST. >> CAN I BRUSH AN ELEPHANT’S TEETH WITH IT? >> YOU SHOULDN’T. WE WILL PRODUCE ENOUGH THAT WE COULD IN THEORY BRUSH THEIR TEETH.

BUT DON’T DO IT BECAUSE IT IS PEROXIDE AND THAT WOULDN’T BE GOOD AND THE ELEPHANT WOULD BE SAD. >> WE DON’T WANT THAT. I’M PUTTING ON THE GLOVES TO PROTECT MYSELF. I ASSUME THIS IS DANGEROUS. >> DON’T EAT IT. AS LONG AS WE KEEP DISTANCE FROM IT WE SHOULD BE FINE. READY? >> READY. >> START WITH THE FLASK. A BIG ONE. NICE AND THICK TO PROTECT US. TAKE THE BIG ONE FIRST. 35% H HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. I LIKE BIG STUFF. I’M FROM TEXAS. I WANT THE BIGGEST REACTION POSSIBLE. 35%. STEP ONE. ADD THE DISH SOAP. >> OKAY. >> WE USE DAWN. THERE IS NO CHEMICAL REASON WHY. BUT DAWN SAVES PENGUINS AND THEY ARE MY FAVORITE ANIMALS TO I SUPPORT DAWN. THANK YOU, DAWN. >> THEY SUPPORT PENGUINS? >> THEY WASH THE PENGUINS THROUGH OIL SPILLS AND GETS THE OIL OFF THEIR BODIES AND THEY ARE HAPPY LITTLE PENGUINS. >> THAT IS SO WHEAT. >> DUMP ALL THAT IN THERE. > THIS IS REALLY RED. THIS WILL BE GREAT.

PUT A LITTLE HIP ACTION IN IT. MAKINGIT HOMOGENOUS. I THINK IT IS GO TIME. >> I’M SCARED. I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENS. >> THIS IS POTASSIUM IODIDE. DUMP IT IN AND STEP BACK QUICKLY. >> QUICKLY? >> READY? COUNT TO THREE. >> THREE, TWO, ONE. >> OH, NO! >> AND STEP BACK! YEAH! >> OH, MY GOSH! >> YES! LOOK AT THIS! >> WOW, YES! >> OH, YES! THAT IS AMAZING. >> LET ME TALK ABOUT. WE HAVE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE AND SHOT OXYGEN GAS OUT OF THE SEAL. WE CAN THE DISH SOAP TRAPPING THE BASS SO YOU CAN SEE THE BUBBLES RELEASED. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU SEE THIS AT HOME BUT THE THERMAL ENERGY IS RELEASED BECAUSE IT IS AN EXOTHERMIC REACTION. >> IT IS AMAZING! >> THAT WAS A GOOD ONE, TOO. I LOVE IT. OH, MY GOSH! DID YOU LIKE IT? >> I’M KIND OF SCARED OF IT, THOUGH. I DON’T HAVE A LAB COAT ON. I FEEL A LITTLE TERRIFIED. YOU CAN DO THIS EXPERIMENT IN THE NEW CHEMISTRY UPDATE WITH MINECRAFT EDUCATION EDITION. >> YOU CAN. YOU CAN BREAK IT ALL APART AND DO IT IN THE GAME. IT IS AWESOME. I LOVE MINECRAFT. >> DO YOU THINK IT IS HAS MESSY? >> I DON’T KNOW. DO IT ANYWAY. AND I WILL WATCH THIS VIDEO OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

>> GUESSING YOU DON’T HAVE TO WEAR THE GOGGLES IN THE GAME. >> NO, YOU DON’T. >> A. >> A BIG THANK YOU TO KATE THE CHEMIST AND YAMMY! >> THANK YOU! >> ONE OF THE COOLEST WAYS WE AS MINECRAFT HELP PROMOTE STEM OTHER THAN CRAZY EXPERIMENTS LIKE THIS IS WITH THE MINECRAFT HOUR OF CODE TUTORIAL AND IT IS COMING NOVEMBER 1.

WE’VE GONE INTO FICTION BOOKS STARTING WITH A MAX BROOKS NOVEL, WE’RE WORKING ON AN UPCOMING MOVIE, AND NOW WE ARE LOOKING INTO THE FUTURE. >> Lydia: SAXS, ARE YOU ABOUT TO TELL EVERYONE WE’RE GOING TO HAVE A MINECRAFT 2? >> Saxs: NO SUCH THING NEEDED. OVER THE PAST NINE WE HAVE DONE SO MAJOR UPDATES ALONE.

SO, WHILE I KNOW PEOPLE LOVE SEQUELS, MINECRAFT IS WAYYY PAST MINECRAFT 2. IT’S A GAME THAT’S CONTINUALLY CHANGING AND EXPANDING. WARE’ GOING TO TALK ABOUT WHERE WE WILL TAKE THE MINECRAFT NEXT? >> YOU WILL TELL US ABOUT THE FUTURE? >> Saxs: LIKE I MENTIONED, WE’VE BEEN EXPANDING WITH STORIES, BUT SINCE WE LOVE GAMES WE WANT TO EXPAND THE MINECRAFT UNIVERSE WITH NEW GAMES. STANDALONE GAMES IN THE BLOCKY MINECRAFT STYLE THAT YOU KNOW AND LOVE, BUT WITH NEW STORIES AND NEW GAME GENRES. >> Lydia: YOU’RE SAYING THERE MIGHT BE NEW GAMES LIKE PLURAL? >> Saxs: YEAH, THAT’S RIGHT. LYDIA. THERE ARE MULTIPLE NEW PROJECTS IN THE WORKS. AND TODAY, WE’RE READY TO GIVE YOU ALL A PEEK AT ONE PROJECT WHICH HAS BEEN VERY NEAR AND DEAR TO THE MOJANG TEAM. >> Lydia: THAT’S TRUE, SAXS.

HELLO TO EVERYONE IN STOCKHOLM! I’M THRILLED TO SHOW YOU ALL THE FIRST LOOK.

STAY TUNED FOR MINECRAFT INTO THE FUTURE. >> Lydia: THANK YOU SO MUCH, SAXS! >> Lydia: AT MOJANG AND MICROSOFT, WE BELIEVE IN USING MINECRAFT TO BUILD A BETTER WORLD. WHETHER IT’S THROUGH EDUCATION, OUR JOINT PROGRAM WITH UN HABITAT, BLOCK BY BLOCK, OR NEW INITIATIVES LIKE CORAL CRAFTERS, WE’VE BEEN WORKING TO MAKE SURE THE GAME HAS A WORLDWIDE POSITIVE INFLUENCE. BUT WE’RE NOT THE ONLY ONES WHO ARE BUILDING A BETTER WORLD.

SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING MINECRAFTERS HAVE BEEN USING THE GAME TO IMPACT THE WORLD AROUND THEM. OUR NEW MEET A MINECRAFTER YOUTUBE SERIES AIMS TO HIGHLIGHT INSPIRING STORIES OF WHAT PEOPLE ARE DOING WITH THE GAME. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT OUR FIRST MINECRAFTER, STEPHEN REID. HE’S USING MINECRAFT TO HELP GIVE PEOPLE A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON A DIFFICULT ISSUE, BY ALLOWING STUDENTS TO HAVE AN IN-GAME EXPERIENCE OF LIFE AS A REFUGEE. >> WE’RE INCREDIBLY PROUD OF WHAT PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD HAVE DONE AND CONTINUE TO DO WITH MINECRAFT. EMPATHY, KINDNESS, AND DISCOVERY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A HUGE PART OF THIS COMMUNITY. MINECRAFT IS ALL ABOUT LEARNING FROM EACH OTHER AND BUILDING INCREDIBLE NEW THINGS, WHETHER THAT’S USING THE GAME TO MAKE A REAL WORLD IMPACT, LIKE STEPHEN REID, OR CREATING AMAZING EXPERIENCES THAT CAN ENTERTAIN INSPIRE AND DELIGHT YOU.

WE TEAMED UP WITH TARGET AND NOXCREW TO CREATE A SPECIAL NEW MINI-GAME CALLED GRID RUNNERS. LAST WEEK, WE GAVE IT AWAY IN TARGET STORES AROUND THE U.S. AND AT THE END OF THE SHOW, WE’RE MAKING IT AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE!

OH, POOR STEFAN. I HOPE HE HAS LEARN THE HIS LESSON. PERHAPS NEXT TIME HE MAKES AN AWESOME MINI GAME HE WILL HAVE TO WONDER IF WE WILL BRING HIM UP ON THE MINECON STAGE AGAIN TO PLAY OUT HIS GAME IN REAL LIFE. BACK TO THE VOTE. I WAS CHATTING WITH MY OWN COHOSTS EARLIER AND WE JUST CAN’T DECIDE WHICH BIOME WILL WIN YOUR SUPPORT IN VOTES. MAYBE WE SHOULD REVIEW THEM ONCE MORE. WE HAVE THE TIGER. A COOLER CLIMATE FULL OF OBVIOUE TREES AND SOMETIMES WOLVES. NOT TO MENTION A GREAT PLACE TO GATHER WOOD. IF YOU VOTE FOR IT YOU WILL SOON ENJOY DELICIOUS BERRIES, WARM CAMP FIRES AND WILEY FOXES TO KEEP YOU COMPANY AS YOU WISH THE NIGHT AWAY. NEXT UP, IS THE SAVANNAH. A WARM AND PEACEFUL PLACE TO WANDER ROUND ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIKE TALL GRASS. IF THE SAVANNAH IS YOUR CHOICE, AFTER THE UPDATE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SIT UNDER THE MIGHTY TREE WHILE STARING FASCINATINGLY AT TERMITES RUNNING AROUND THEIR MOUNDS AS OSTRICHES JUST HANG AROUND.

AND FINALLY, WE HAVE THE DESERT. OFTEN THOUGHT OF AS JUST SANDY BARREN LANDS. IF YOU VOTE FOR THIS BIOME YOU WILL BE REWARDED WITH A REFRESHING OASIS. THE COOL SHADE OF BEAUTIFUL PALM TREES WHILE MEERKATS WHO CONFUSINGLY ARE NOT AT ALL CATS SCURRY ALL AROUND YOU. HOW CAN YOU CHOOSE? WITH SUCH AMAZING OPTIONS THE DECDECISION IS A TOUGH ONE CONSIDERATION IF I WERE YOU, I WOULD GET ALL OF MY FRIENDS ON MY SIDE AND VOTE RIGHT NOW. THAT’S RIGHT. THE POLL IS NOW OPEN! MAKE SURE YOU ARE LOGGED IN AND GO TO THE MINECRAFT TWITTER ACCOUNT TO MAKE YOUR MARK ON THE FUTURE OF MINECRAFT. AND THE FUTURE OF YOUR EXPLORATION, OF AMAZING WORLDS IN THE GAME. >> CAN PUPPETS USE TWITTER? >> THANKS VU. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHAT EVERYONE VOTES ON. >> Lydia: HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO START MAKING YOUR OWN VIDEOS? OR DO YOU WISH YOU COULD TAKE YOUR VIDEOMAKING TO THE NEXT LEVEL? LONG AGO, I USED TO MAKE VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE. AND WHILE I DID HAVE AWESOME PINK HAIR, I REALLY WISH I’D HAD SOME OF THE GREAT TIPS COMING UP IN THIS SEGMENT.

NEXT UP, WE HAVE BIGB TEACHING YOU HOW TO CREATE AUTHENTIC VIDEOS! >> WHAT’S’ GOING ON GUYS. I’M ANTHONY FOR BigB STATS. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT BUILDING A CHANNEL AND HOPEFULLY INSPIRE YOU TO CREATE. I’M JOINED BY MY GOOD FRIEND MARTYN. >> THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME ON. I HAD A CHANGE AND I’M NOT SLIMY IN HE MORE. KNOWN EACH OTHER A FEW YEARS. MINE AND TODAY WE TALK ABOUT HOW YOU GOT STARTED IN THE JOURNEY. WE CAN S SEE ONE OF OUR FIRST ER VIDEOS. >> Martyn: THERE IT IS, MATE BigB WE ALL START SOMEWHERE. I REMEMBER ACTUALLY MAKING THAT, WHICH IS CRAZY TO THINK I’M HERE AND I CAN REMEMBER BEING IN THE ROOM AND MAKING THE VIDEO.

WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER AND ALL START SOMEWHERE. WITH THAT BEING SAID MARTYN OH, NO. >> BigB: WE HAVE A VIDEO TO. >> Martyn: HERE COME OURS. >> I REMEMBER EVERYBODY HAVE BACK THEN AND IT IS JUST REALLY INTERESTING SEEING THEN AND HOW WE HAVE GOTTEN HERE NOW. I STARTED BECAUSE I HAD A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS I ENJOYED DOING THAT FED INTO YOUTUBE. HOW DID YOU START VIDEOS? WHY? >> I ALWAYS LOVED VIDEO GAMES. I CAN REMEMBER BEING IN MY SAME HOUSE AND ALL IN DIFFERENT ROOMS A PLAYING THE SAME GAME. >> A PARTY. >> JUST ENJOYED IT. AND I WOULD FIND TRICKS IN VIDEO GAMES. I WAS LOOKING UP TUTORIALS HOW DO YOU DO THIS AND THAT. IT WAS SOMETIMES EXPLAINED VERY LONG AND THEN I KIND OF THOUGHT LIKE HEY, THIS COULD BE EXPLAINED IN LIKE FIVE MINUTES SO I FELT THAT I COULD DO IT BETTER AND KIND OF TOOK THAT STEP AND STARTED DOING IT MYSELF.

>> TRYING TO REFINE THE CONTENT THAT YOU PERSONALLY ENJOYED. NOT FOR FAME OR MONEY OR FOR THE VIEWS. >> NO, TO BE HONEST, I WAS THE SHIEST PERSON IN THE ROOM AND I’M STILL SHY NOW. I’M SHY DOING THIS RIGHT NOW. I LOVE IT AND THAT IS WHY I’M HERE TODAY. >> EXACTLY. YOU HAVE TO DO ANYTHING CREATIVE BECAUSE OF A PASSION. I COMBINED PASSIONS.

I WAS PLAYING LOAD IS OF VIDEO GAMES AND DID SOME LIGHT RADIO PRESENTING STUFF AND THEN STARTED MAKING VIDEOS ABOUT REMEMBER VLOGS AND THEN COMBINED THE PASSION. >> PASSION IS SO KEY. IF YOU HAVE PASSION THAT KIND OF SPARKS THE C CREATIVITY. STAPLES IT IS NOT NECESSARILY THINKING — SOMETIMES IT IS NOT NECESSARILY THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX BUT THINKING THERE IS NO BOX. THERE IS NO LIMIT TO BEINGEE YEAHTIVE. TAKE THE STEP FORWARD AND GO FOR IT. >> AS SOON AS YOU START TO LIMIT, YOU ARE IMPEDING YOUR OWN CREATIVITY. SEE WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOESN’T. WE NEED A WAY TO CAPTURE IT. WE NEED TO TALK PRACTICALITIES ON MAKING CONTENT. >> TODAY, EVERYONE HAS A PHONE. >> SO GOOD. >> AND A GREAT CAMERA AND GREAT MIC. YOU SEE THE POSTS ALL THE TIME. >> I DON’T SEE HOW YOU CAN PLAY A VIDEO GAME WHEN DOING THAT. >> I COULD PLAY WITH ONE HAND. >> I THINK PULL OUT SOMETHING LIKE THIS. LIKE AFFORDABLE LIKE LITTLE TRIPOD. >> THAT IS NOT BAD TO USE. I CAN REMEMBER USING ONE OF THESE AND IF IT DID NOT MATCH MY HEIGHT YOU COULD USE BOOKS TO MATCH TO MAKE SURE IT IS LEVEL WITH YOU IS ALSO GOOD.

>> I USED BOOKS AND PLANT POTS AND I EVEN KNOW PEOPLE WHO USE A SELFIE STICK NOWADAYS PLANTED IN SOMETHING. >> PLANT A SELFIE STICK IN STUFF. >> YEAH. >> AND LIGHTING IN THE EARLIER VIDEOS I HAD TOO MUCH LIGHT. >> WE HAD A LOT OF LIGHT. >> DAYLIGHT IS NOT BAD TO USE. IT IS PERFECT AS LONG AS IT IS DAY, OF COURSE. A DESK LAMP IS PERFECT. NOT TOO CLOSE, NOT TOO FAR BUT JUST ENOUGH TO BE SEEN. DARK VIDEOS ARE HARD TO SEE. MAKE SURE YOU ARE SEEN.

>> MAKE SURE THAT YOU DON’T PUT THE LIGHT DIRECTLY BEHIND YOUR CAMERA BECAUSE OTHERWISE YOU HAVE LIKE THE SHAPE OF YOUR PHONE YOU WILL HAVE THIS HUGE RECTANGLE IN YOUR FACE. >> LAKE A SHADOW THERE. >> HALF OF ME, EVERYBODY. >> LIKE IS HE WEARING SHADES. >> FUTURISTIC GLASSES. >> THE CAMERA MIC OR THE PHONE MIC IS GOOD. NOT TOO CLOSE, NOT TOO FAR. IN A NICE QUIET PLACE. >> IT CAN PICK UP EVERYTHING. IF YOU A BROTHER OR SISTER RUNNING AROUND IN THE BACKGROUND IT WILL PROBABLY HEAR THEM. SOMETHING LIKE THIS IS GOOD, RIGHT? >> MAKE SURE THIS ISN’T TOO CLOSE.

I HAVE HAD ONE OF THESE. MAKE SURE THIS ISN’T TOO CLOSE. YOU WANT TO BE HEARD BUT NOT TOO MUCH. >> YEAH, EXACTLY. YEAH. A LOT OF LITTLE TIPS AND TRICKS YOU NEED. WITH AUDIO, IT CAN BE QUIET AND YOU CAN BOOST IT. GETTING RID OF THE CRACKLING SOUND WHEN IT IS TOO LOUD? >> EXACTLY. >> I MENTIONED EARLIER I CAME FROM RADIO TO YOUTUBE SO I WAS REALLY UNCONFIDENT IN THE VIDEO. DID YOU FIND THE SAME? >> BIG TIME. VERY, VERY SHY. AND THE ONE IMPORTANT THING I LEARNED IS REALLY LOOKING INTO THE LENS. VERY IMPORTANT. MOSWE PEND MOST OF OUR DAYS LOOG INTO A LENS TALKING TO OURSELVES. BUT IT IS FUN AND I ENJOY IT. WHEN I STARTED DOING COMMENTARIES I NOTICE I WOULD TALK. PRESS RECORD AND JUST TALK. BUT I STARTED TO STUMBLE A BIT SO I STARTED MAKING NOTES. MAKE NOTES. >> THAT IS SO GOOD. >> KEEPS YOU ON TRACK OF THE TOPIC AND YOU DON’T GET LOST IN WHAT YOU ARE SAYING. >> I USED TO TALK FOR THE SAKE OF TALKING.

WHICH ISN’T OF VALUE FOR THE VIDEO. I WOULD RECORD FOR 20 MINUTES AND GO I NEED TO RECORD THROUGH THE WHOLE THING. I CAN RECORD 40 MINUTES AND CHOP IT DOWN TO 10. OR EVEN SAY SOMETHING LIKE NO ONE CARES ABOUT THAT. >> EXACTLY. >> EDITING IS THE MAGIC OF MAKING VIDEOS. ADD MUSING FOR ATMOSPHERE AND MAKE EVERYTHING A BIT MORE ENCHANTING OR INTENSE. YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN BE HEARD OVER SAID MUSIC.

>> DON’T MAKE THE MUSIC LOUDER THAN THE VOICE? >> OTHERWISE YOU WILL BE SCREAMING LIKE AT A CONCERT. WE STARTED MAKING CONTENT. WHAT IS NEXT AFTER THAT? >> BEING CONSISTENT. CONSISTENCY IS SUPER IMPORTANT AND CONSISTENCY BUILDS TRUST. >> YEAH. >> I REMEMBER ME BEING A KID AND SAY I WOULD COME HOME EVERY WEDNESDAY AND KNEW A PARTICULAR SHOW I LOVED WOULD BE ON EVERY WEDNESDAY AT P.M. I WOULD EXPECT THAT AND TRUSTED THAT. >> ON THE SAME NOTE, WE HAVE LIKE SATURDAY MORNING CARTOONS. THE INTROIS ALWAYS THE SAME AND RECOGNIZABLE. WHAT IS GOING ON MY NAME IS ANTHONY OR BigB STATS? >> THAT WAS ALL RIGHT. >> AN IMPRESSION. >> THE KEY THING IS IT WORKS AND SETS ME OFF. I TURN ON THE CAMERA AND SAY MY INTROTHAT IS WHAT GETS ME INTO THE ZONE. >> ONE THING I NOTICE AS TIME WENT ON AND I STARTED TO EXPERIMENT, AS MUCH AS I STARTED TO BE REGULAR AND CONSISTENT WITH THE VIDEOS I WOULD LIKE PANIC LIKE IT HAS TO BE LIKE EVERY WEDNESDAY. YOU HAVE TO ALLOW YOURSELF SOME BREATHING ROOM. SOME VIDEOS TAKE 10 MINUTES AND SOME TAKE 10 HOURS. >> I HAVE A GREAT YOUTUBE TIP! >> HI, WE MADE IT TO THE COMPILATION, MUM.

HELLO, EVERY CHANNEL. >> LET GO BACK TO THEN. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT CONSISTENCY. SOME VIDEOS TAKE 10 MINUTES AND SOME AN HOUR AND SOME 10 DAYS. BE PATIENT WITH YOUR SELF, RIGHT? >> PATIENCE IS KEY. I REMEMBER ME BEING AT MINECON ORLANDO AND WHAT HAPPENED AT ORLANDO — NOBODY KNEW ME. I ALMOST TAKE THAT AS MOTIVATION. WHAT I DID IS I WORKED REALLY HARD AND NOW I’M AN ALL COHOST OF MINECON EARTH. JUST INSANE. >> LIKE A CHERNOBYL EFFECT. >> NOTHING HAPPENS OVERNIGHT. >> NOTHING DOES. TALKING ABOUT PATIENCE. ROW HAVE TO HAVE PATIENCE WITH THE VIEWERS AS WELL. >> EXACTLY. >> SOME PEOPLE WILL COMMENT AND SOME NOT SO NICE. >> YOU NEED TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONSTRCTIVE CRITICISM AND JUST MEAN COMMENTS. ONE EXAMPLE WHEN I MADE VIDEOS LIKE I WOULD SAY LIKE A LOT OF TIMES.

A COMMENT THAT SAYS HEY, BigB, MAYBE YOU SAY LIKE TOO MANY TIMES. IS CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM? >> IRON OUT THE KINKS. >> EXACTLY. NOT SOMEONE SAYING HEY, THIS IS A BAD VIDEO. YOU CAN ALWAYS BLOCK THE HATERS. HAPPENS TO EVERY ONE OF US. >> EVERY SINGLE PERSON WHO UPLOADED VIDEO HAS A MIXED BAG? >> JUST REMEMBER, WE ALL HAVE — REGARDLESS, RACE, GENDER, RELIGION ARE ORIENTATION,’ ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER. >> EVERY ONE IS A NEW ONE.

>> INSPIRE PEOPLE AND CREATE IN COMMUNITY. I ASKED MY FRIENDS A BIT OF THEIR ADVICE. HERE IS WHAT THEY HAD TO SAY. >> SO REMEMBER, NOTHING HAPPENS OVERNIGHT. BE BOLD. BE CREATIVE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, BE YOU. >> Lydia: WOW, IT’S REALLY INCREDIBLE TO SEE WHAT MINECRAFT CAN DO IN THE HANDS OF A FANTASTIC TEACHER LIKE PATRICIA. WE HAVE AMAZING EDUCATORS ACROSS THE WORLD WORLD USING MINECRAFT: EDUCATION EDITION. TO ENSURE SPARE STUDENTS. THE FIRST VOTING POLL IS ABOUT TO CLOSE. VOTE AND PICK WHICH BIOME GETS WORKED ON NEXT.

LAST YEAR WE INTRODUCED THE FEATURES OF UPDATE AQUATIC. IT HAS BEEN ONE OF THE MOST LOVED UPDATES. UNDER WATER BECAME A MAGICAL PLACE WHERE ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN! >> I HOPE THAT GUY DOES FIND HIS WAY HOME SAFELY. WE HAVE COME TO ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOMENTS AT ANY MINECON. THE COSTUME CONTEST! AND WE HAVE HERE ON STAGE OUR THREE COSTUME CONTEST FINALISTS. ALL OF THESE HAVE INCREDIBLE INCREDIBLE BUILDS AS YOU SAY WHEN IT COMES TO THESE FANTASTIC COSTUMES. SO FIRST, I HAVE LEO.

HOW ARE YOU DOING? >> GOOD. >> AND INSIDE OF THERE IS ACTUALLY A PERSON. HOW ARE YOU DOING IN THERE? >> I’M DOING GOOD. >> SHE IS HAVING A GREAT TIME IN THERE. ACTUALLY, I HEARD IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY. HOW OLD ARE YOU? >> I’M 11 YEARS OLD. >> WELL, CONGRATULATIONS. HAPPY BIRTHDAY. >> WHERE ARE YOU FROM? >> WE ARE FROM FRANCE. >> FRANCE? ALL THE WAY FROM FRANCE. WAS THAT WORRISOME TRAVELING WITH THE COSTUME? >> IT WAS DIFFICULT. >> A LITTLE BITTIEST. >> THE CHICKEE JOCKEY CAN FLAP ITS WIGS AND MOVE ITS ARMS. YOU ARE DOING GREAT INSIDE OF THERE. WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR CREATING THE COSTUME? >> WELL, MINECRAFT. >> MINECRAFT WAS THE INSPIRATION. GOOD ANSWER. GREAT JOB. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. >> GIVE THEM SOME LOVE. >> THIS IS ALSO A COSTUME DAPHNE, ARE YOU IN THERE? >> YEAH. >> WHERE ARE YOU FROM? >> VIRGINIA. >> AND WHY A RABBIT? WHY DID YOU CHOOSE A RABBIT? >> I HAVE NO CLUE. >> YOU HAVE NO CLUE. >> GIVE US A LITTLE BIT OF A SIGN THAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY IN THERE. GIVE US MOVEMENT. THIS IS SOMETHING YOU WOULD NOT TAKE LIKE ON THE STREET. THIS IS SOMETHING YOU KEEP AT YOUR HOUSE. >> YEAH. >> FANTASTIC. >> WHAT DOES THE RABBIT EAT? WHAT IS THE FAVORITE LUNCH? >> VEGN STUFF.

>> VEGAN STUFF. A VEGAN RABBIT. THANK YOU SO MUCH, DAPHNE. GIVER SOME LOVE. AND WHERE ARE YOU FROM? >> SOUTH AFRICA. A GREAT COUNTRY. >> A GREAT COUNTRY. >> AND IS BLAZE YOUR FAVORITE MOB? >> NOT REALLY. IT IS KIND OF ANNOYING. >> WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE, THOUGH? >> WOLF. >> A WOLF. WHY DO YOU BUILD A WOLF? >> IT WAS LAST YEAR’S NUMBER THREE. >> BLAZE LOOKS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. I CAN SEE THAT IS GLOWS IN THE DARK. SO IF WE WOULDN’T MIND ASKING PRODUCTION TO TURN DOWN THE LIGHTS SO WE CAN SEE IT ACTUALLY HAS LIGHTS INCLUDED UNDERNEATH THE MASK ON EVER REFLECTION EVEE BLAZE PARTS. INCREDIBLE. ALL OF THE BUILDS ARE GREAT. AND THEY SHOULD BE SO PROUD. YOU ARE THE THREE FINALISTS. WE DO HAVE A TROPHY FOR ONE WINNER. WE ONLY JUST DECIDED TODAY.

EARLIER THIS MORNING WHO THE WINNER WOULD BE. AND I’M VERY HAPPY TO SAY THAT LEO AND LEEEN YOU ARE THE WINNER OF THE COSTUME CONTEST. THERE YOU GO. SORRY IN THERE. GIVE US SOME MOB ACTION! GIVE US SOME MOB ACTION! SHOCKED. NOW WE WILL TOSS IT OVER TO VU. >> THE RESULTS OF THE FIRST VOTE ARE IN! NOW IS WHEN WE SAY GOODBYE TO ONE OF THE BIOMES. THE ONE THAT RECEIVED THE LEAST AMOUNT OF VOTES. AND MOVE ON TO VOTE ON THE FINAL TWO, I WOULD ASK FOR A DRUM ROLL, BUT I’M FAR TOO EXCITED TO WAIT. DRUM ROLLS CAN SOMETIMES FEEL LIKE THEY GO ON FOR AGES. MEANWHILE, ALL YOU REALLY WANT IS TO HEAR THE RESULTS. WHY SPEND ALL THAT TIME MAKING MEANINGLESS NOISE, JUST GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT. AT LEAST THAT’S WHAT I SAY.

>> OH, WHAT THE HECK. YOU KNOW WHAT, DRUM ROLLS ARE COOL. DRUM ROLL, PLEASE. >> AND THE BIOME THAT WILL NOT BE UPDATED FIRST, THE ONE WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF VOTES — THE DESERT! SORRY, BUDDY. BETTER LUCK NEXT TIME. I HAVE TO ADMIT, I WAS ALREADY IMAGINING THE DESERT SANDS BETWEEN MY TOES, THE SUNSHINING ON MY HAT AND THE PALM TREES SWAYING IN THE WIND. BUT OH, WELL, DESERT’S OUT. LET’S HAVE A LOOK AT THE TWO REMAINING BIOMES THAT YOU PREFER OVER THE NICE WARM VACATIONY BIOME THAT IS THE DESERT. ARE YOU THE TYPE OF PLAYER WHO LIKES TO PLAY IT COOL? DO YOU ENJOY THE SWEET TASTE OF BERRIES AND RICH BUT SOMETIMES DANGEROUS WILDLIFE? THEN YOU WILL LOVE THE TIGER AND IT’S SIZEABLE FOX POPULATION. OR MAYBE YOU’RE ALL ABOUT THE HOMELY WARMTH OF THE DESERT BUT DON’T LIKE THE SAND CREEPING IN EVERYWHERE. CLEARLY THE OSTRICH-RICH SAVANNAH IS THE BIOME FOR YOU. SO, THE COMMUNITY HAS SPOKEN AND YOUR TWO FAVORITES REMAIN. ONLY ONE CAN WIN THE FINAL VOTE, HOWEVER, AND BE THE FIRST TO RECEIVE AN EXTREME BIOME MAKEOVER.

MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE LOGGED IN AND GO TO THE OFFICIAL MINECRAFT TWITTER ACCOUNT @ MINECRAFT. WE HAVE JUST OPENED A BRAND NEW POLL AND ONLY THE TIGER AND SAVANNAH ARE OPTIONS. EVEN IF YOU ALREADY VOTE THE, REMEMBER THIS IS A NEW VOTE WITH THE TWO REMAINING OPTIONS. CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE AND CLICK THE LITTLE CIRCLE. YOUR VOTE WILL BE CAST AND YOU WILL BE PART OF HISTORY AS SOMEONE WHO HELPED SHAPE THE DEVELOPMENT OF MINECRAFT. SO GET OVER THERE AND CAST YOUR VOTE NOW. THIS FINAL POLL IS ONLY OPEN FOR A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME. THEN, STAY TUNED, BECAUSE LATER IN THE SHOW YENZ AND AGNES WILL REVEAL THE WINNER AS WELL AS OTHER AWESOME THINGS ABOUT UPCOMING UPTATES. UPDATES. >> IT’S REALLY HEATING UP. TIGER AND SAVANNAH. EXCITING. NEXT UP, LET’S WELCOME AUREYLIAN BACK TO THE STAGE! YOU LOOK AMAZING. >> THE COSTUME CHANGE FOR YOU. CHAD DID IT. IF HE GETS A COSTUME CHANGE, I WANT TO, TOO. >> I’M IMPRESSED.

I NEED TO UP MY GAME THIS YEAR. YOU ALL MIGHT NOT KNOW THIS, BUT, AUREYLIAN AND I MET BACK IN 2013 AT MINECON IN ORLANDO. AFTER THAT WE BECAME FRIENDS, MADE VIDEOS TOGETHER, SANG IS. >> SANG IN SOMEONE. >> SANG IN ONE TOGETHER AND NOW GET TO SHARE THE STAGE AT MINECON EARTH. IT IS CRAZY BECAUSE I DON’T THINK WE WOULD HAVE MET OTHERWISE. >> WE WOULDN’T HAVE AT ALL. >> I KNOW IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT BUT HOW BIG OF A ROLE HAS MINECRAFT PLAYED IN HELPING YOU FORM FRIENDSHIPS? >> I’M HERE BECAUSE OF MINECRAFT. THE FRIENDS THAT I MET AND PEOPLE THAT ENCOURAGED ME TO GET INTO YOUTUBE AND LIVE STREAMING AND THE JOB I HAVE TODAY IS BECAUSE I STARTED PLAYING MINECRAFT BACK IN 2011. >> WHAT ARE WE GO TO SEE. >> WE TALKED ABOUT BEING FRIENDS AND MAKING FRIENDS. THERE ARE PEOPLE FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD OF DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS WHO COME TOGETHER AND PLAY MINECRAFT TOGETHER AND BECOME FRIENDS. I BROUGHT THREE SETS OF FRIENDS TO MINECON WITH ME.

AND WE WILL ACTUALLY SEE HOW MUCH THEY KNOW ABOUT EACH OTHER. >> AMAZING. LET’S GET INTO IT. TAKE IT AWAY, AUREYLIAN. >> THANKS. WE WILL MEET THE CONTESTANTS. HELLO, CONTESTANTS. >> HI. >> ARE YOU EXCITED? >> YES. >> SUPER EXCITED. >> LET’S START WITH INTRODUCTIONS FOR ALL TELESETS E SEATS OF YOU. EFRAT AND ANAT, YOU RUN TOYA. I GOT TO PLAY GORILLA ADVENTURES. WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO DO MAPS LIKE THAT? >> WE THINK THAT DIANE POSSE IS AN AMAZING APE RESEARCHER AND WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE COOL TO EXPLORE THE KIDS FOR HER WORLD. AND WE LOVE GORILLAS AND WE WANTED TO CREATE ONE. >> IT WAS A GOOD OPPORTUNITY. >> AND FOR MINECRAFT AND ESPECIALLY THE BABY ONES WHICH ARE SUPER COOL. >> THEY WERE SO CUTE.

>> AND WE ARE A FEMALE-LED STUDIO. WE DO WORLDS AND SKINS ON THE MARKETPLACE. AND THEY ARE ALL INSPIRED, YOU KNOW, BY THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF AMAZING WOMEN WHO CHANGE THE WORLD. SO WE WANT THE GIRLS TO BECOME THE SHEROES JUST L LIKE BOYS CAN BECOME HEAR ROSE. >> THAT IS AWESOME. WE WILL LEARN MORE ABOUT YOU LATER. THE NEXT SECOND OF CONTESTANTS. CPK AND LAURENZSIDE. ASIDE FROM ME, MY DAUGHTER WATCHES YOUR VIDEOS BECAUSE YOU GET TO MAKE MINECRAFT CONTENT TOGETHER AND THAT IS RAD FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE FRIENDS. >> IT IS AMAZING. >> WHERE CAN PEOPLE FIND YOU TWO MAKING VIDEOS? >> RIGHT NOW OUR CURRENT SERIES ARE THE DEEP END WHERE WE EXPLORE VANILLA MINECRAFT FOR ONCE AND THE AQUATIC UPDATES AND THEN ONE LIFE RIGHT NOW WHERE WE ONLY HAVE ONE LIFE IN MINECRAFT AND IF WE DIE IN MINECRAFT WE ARE OUT OF THE SERVER AND THE SERIES. >> SO WITH ALL OF THIS MINECRAFT YOU TWO PLAY TOGETHER YOU GUYS SHOULD KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT EACH OTHER. >> WE ARE BEST FRIENDS. WE ARE THE DYNAMIC DUO PEOPLE CALL USY WE WILL SEE COMPARED.

>> HA. >> AND THE FINAL SET. HE LAUGHS. HE LAUGHS. >> DO THE OUTFITS MATCH? >> KIND OF. >> KIND OF. >> IT’S A TREND. ALL RIGHT. NEVER MIND. >> I WILL TAKE A POINT AWAY ALREADY. >> WHAT? >> THAT WAS NOT — >> ACTUALLY. >> SORRY. >> WE GOT TO LEARN ABOUT YOUR FRIENDSHIP EARLIER IN YOUR SEGMENT. PEOPLE MAY NOT KNOW THAT MARTYN AND I GO WAY BACK AND MARTYN IS THE REASON WHY I’M HERE TODAY. I WAS OUT LOOKING FOR PEOPLE TO SAY COME PLAY ON MY MINECRAFT SERVER AND MESSAGED YOU ON TWITTER AND YOU WERE LIKE LET’S LIVE STREAM. I DIDN’T KNOW THERE WAS A WHOLE WORLD OF PEOPLE THAT MADE VIDEOS AND PEOPLE WHO WATCHED VIDEOS. AND SO YOU GOT ME ENCOURAGED AND TAUGHT ME LIKE PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING I KNOW.

AND NOW WE’RE HERE. >> AWESOME. >> IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG, IT’S MARTYN’S FAULT. >> MY FAULT? DOWN ONE POINT AND EVERYTHING IS MY FAULT. >> I LOVE YOU AND I’M GLAD YOU’RE HERE. >> LET’S GET STARTED. BEFORE WE CAME HERE TO MINECON WE ASKED ALL THREE SETS OF FRIENDS SOME QUESTIONS ABOUT THEMSELVES AND THEIR EXPERIENCES WITH MINECRAFT AND THE THINGS THAT THEY LIKE. NOW, WE WILL GO GROUP BY GROUP AND SEE HOW MUCH YOU KNOW. >> NORTH AMERICA YOU’RE GOING TO DO GOOD — THINK YOU’RE GOING TO DO GOOD? >> PERFECT. >> EFRAT AND. >> Anat: ,ANAT WHAT HER FAVORITE MEMORY OF THE FRIENDSHIP IS. WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE SAID? >> THIS IS EASY? >> EASY? >> I THINK SO.

WAY BACK 12 YEARS AGOO AND AGO D WORKING TOGETHER AND WE GAVE BIRTH ON THE SAME DATE. >> YOU HAD YOUR BABIES ON THE SAME DAY. >> NOT THE SAME HOSPITAL. >> NOT THE SAME HOSPITAL. YOU WORK TOGETHER AND FRIENDS TOGETHER AND HAD YOUR BABIES TOGETHER. IS THAT THE RIGHT? >> SO EASY. >> SO EASY. >> YOU GAVE BIRTH ON THE SAME DAY. >> THAT IS INCREDIBLE. YOU GUYS ARE 1-1. >> HOW DO WE FOLLOW GIVE BIRTH ON THE SAME DAY? >> YOU CAN’T. >> YOU CAN’T. >> YOU CAN STILL GET THIS QUESTION RIGHT, THOUGH, OKAY. MAY NOT BE AS GOOD FRIENDS BUT CAN STILL GET IN RIGHT. WE ASKED YOU TO DESCRIBE — WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE SAID? >> I THINK THIS IS WHAT I WOULD DESCRIBE HER AS SO I HOPE SHE THINKS THE SAME. I THINK SHE IS A LITTLE DIAMOND. >> AWW. >> I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO BE MEAN AND SAY LIKE DIRT OR SOMETHING. >> I WOULD NEVER. >> WHAT DID YOU SAY? >> OBSIDIAN. >> OH. >> WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? >> BECAUSE IT’S PURPLE. >> OKAY. >> OH UNITED STATES OF AMERICA OKAY.HONORARY POINT. IT WAS SWEAT. >> MARTYN AND BigB. >> WE ONCE SNEEZED AT THE SAME TIME. >> NOT EVEN CLOSE.

>> NO ONE CAN PROVE THAT IS TRUE ANYWAY. BigB, WE ASKED MARTYN IF YOU PLAYED A ROUND OF MINECRAFT SURVIVAL GAMES WITH YOUR WONDERFUL COHOST, WHO DO YOU THINK WOULD BE LEFT STANDING? >> WELL — >> WHO DO YOU THINK MARTYN WOULD SAY IS LEFT STANDING? >> IT WOULDN’T BE YOU. WOULD IT? >> NO. IT WOULD BE ME. OH. >> NOW, I FEEL LIKE WE SHOULD STILL GET A POINT BECAUSE THE WORDS MATCH. >> DOES THAT COUNT? >> THAT’S PRETTY GOOD. >> I ACTUALLY MEANT YOU. >> DID YOU? >> NO, I NEVER MEANT YOU. >> YOU GUYS THINK THE SAME. >> YES. >> IT WAS LIKE A BENEFIT TO THAT.

SO EFRAT AND ANAT, WE LEARNED NOW YOU GAVE BIRTH TOGETHER. YOU HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR A REALLY LONG TIME. HOW DID YOU MAKE THE TRANSITION BEING FRIENDS TO STARTING TO MAKE MINECRAFT CONTENT TOGETHER? WHAT DID THAT LOOK LIKE? >> I THINK WE WANTED OUR KIDS TO HAVE EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES AS THEY GROW UP AND WE THOUGHT THAT MINECRAFT IS THE PERFECT GAME TO DO THAT. WANTED TO DO STORY TELLING AND ADVENTURES. SO IT WAS JUST, YOU KNOW, A REUNION OF THE CONNECTION, YEAH. WE JUST WENT AHEAD AND DID THAT. >> AND HAVE TO BE THE COOLEST MOMS BECAUSE YOU MAKE MINECRAFT MAPS. PRETTY AWESOME. >> YOU NEED TO ASK OUR KIDS. >> WE WILL FOR SURE. >> YOU GUYS WERE FRIENDS BEFORE OR AFTER YOU STARTED MAKING VIDEOS? >> BECAUSE OF. >> BECAUSE OF? >> LAKELIKE HOW DO YOU RANDOMLY MESSAGE SOMEONE AND SAY LET’S MAKE VIDEOS? >> WE HAVE MUTUAL FRIENDS AND WE WERE ON SERIES TOGETHER AND WE WERE ON THE PART HEY, SHOULD WE START FILMING.

I SAW A LUNGE OF LAUREN’S VIDEOS AND — A BUNCH OF LAUREN’S VIDEOS AND WE HAVE THE SAME SENSE OF HUMOR. >> MARTYN, I DON’T HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR YOU. >> WE ARE OLD NEWS. >> WE LOVE YOU BUT WE ALREADY KNOW. S GREAT. WE WILL DO ONE MORE ROUND. YOUR CHANCE TO REDEEM YOURSELVES. >> OKAY. >> OKAY. START WITH YOU GUYS AGAIN. ANAT, WE ASKED EFRAT WHICH HOSTILE SHE WOULD KEEP AS A PET. WHICH MOB? >> THAT IS DIFFICULT. OKAY.

IF WE WERE TO HAVE HOSTILE COCK ROACHES ROACHES — I WOULD GO F. I WILL GO FOR SPIDER. EVEN IF WE HAVE THEM IN THE STUDIO WALKING AROUND SHE WOULD GO AND PICK THEM OUT. >> THE OTHER ONE IS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE ROOM. >> SPIDERS. >> DOES SHE — >> SPIDER. >> YEAH! YEAH! >> YOU HAVE ALREADY WON. >> THAT IS AWESOME. YOU ARE 2-2. NO ONE CAN BEAT YOU. LIKE MY NEW FAVORITE SET OF FRIENDS.

WE’LL SEE. YOU GUYS CAN PICK THIS UP NOW, OKAY. >> HERE WE GO. >> LAUREN, WE ASKED WHAT HIS BIGGEST FEAR WAS IN MINECRAFT. >> OH. >> WHAT IS THAT LOOK FOR? >> LAUREN, WHAT DID YOU SAY HIS BIGGEST FEAR IN MINECRAFT WAS? >> I REALLY WASN’T SURE SO I SAID WITCHES BECAUSE THEY ARE PRETTY TERRIBLE. >> WITCHES ARE TERRIBLE. YOU HAVE THIS STRANGE LOOK ON YOUR FACE. WHAT DID YOU SAY? >> I GOT THE QUESTION WRONG. >> WHAT? >> I THOUGHT IT WAS IN MY LIFE SO I PUT FAILURE. >> OH, MY GOODNESS. >> ARE YOU SCARED OF WITCHES? Y YEAH, THEY ARE PRETTY TERRIBLE. >> THEN IT COUNTS. OKAY. >> ARE YOU OKAY? >> OH. >> MARTYN AND BigB, YOUR LAST OPPORTUNITY TO GET THIS ONE RIGHT.

>> OKAY. >> MARTYN. >> YEP. >> THIS SHOULD BE THE EASIEST QUESTION? >> DON’T SAY THAT. >> WE ASKED BigB WHAT HIS FAVORITE SNACK WAS. >> I MEAN WE HAVE EVEN HAD EVIDENCE OF THIS ALREADY TODAY. IT 100% HAS TO BE COOKIES. >> COOKIES. >> JUST HAS TO BE. >> AND AT IS — >> IT IS PART OF YOUR BREAK. COOKIES, RIGHT? >> THAT IS A MASSIVE PILE OF THEM PACK STAGE. >> WELL, THERE WAS. >> THAT IS THE WAY THE COOKIE CRUMBLES IS ACTUALLY — >> GUMMY BEARS? >> I HAVE NEVER SEEN YOU EAT A GUMMY BEAR IN YOUR LIFE. >> I HAVE. >> THAT WAS THE LEAST CONVINCING I HAVE EVER. >> GUMMY BEARS. >> YOU ARE STILL GOOD FRIENDS. EVERYBODY HERE IS GOOD FRIENDS. WE WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY AT HOME TO TRY THIS WITH THEIR FRIENDS. ASK THEM QUESTIONS. SEE IF YOU CAN GET THEM RIGHT. AND WE OPEN THAT YOU GUYS ENJOYED IT. A FINAL ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR OUR AMAZING GUESTS! >> LYDIA, BACK TO YOU. >> THANKS AUREYLIAN. I THINK WE HAVE TO TRY A VERSION OF THAT IN THE OFFICE TO SEE HOW WELL EVERYONE KNOWS EACH OTHER. I’M NOT SURE ABOUT BigB’S SURVIVAL GAME SKILLS BUT MARTYN USED TO WIN LIKE ALL THE TIME LIKE EVERY SERVER THAT I WAS ON.

SO MY MONEY IS ON HIM. IT IS HARD TO DESCRIBE HOW MUCH MINECRAFT HAS CHANGED THINGS FOR SO MANY WHEN YOU HEAR ABOUT THE FRIENDSHIPS AND PEOPLE ON STAGE IT IS REALLY INCREDIBLE. MYSELF INCLUDED. LIVING IN SWEDEN AND MOVING TO FLORIDA. AN UNDENIABLE FORCE. OR LAST MEET A MINECRAFT VIDEO INTRODUCES A COMPANY THAT IS GIVING EVEN MORE PEOPLE A CHANCE TO PLAY. >> Lydia: IT’S SO INSPIRING TO SEE TECHNOLOGY LIKE EYEMINE HELP MAKE MINECRAFT TRULY ACCESSIBLE TO PLAYERS. THAT IS REALLY WHAT THE GAME IS ALL ABOUT. EVERY YEAR, ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING AND ANTICIPATED SEGMENTS OF THE SHOW IS THE FUTURE UPDATES, WHERE YOU ALL GET TO FIND OUT ABOUT ALL THE NEW COOL STUFF THAT’S COMING TO THE GAME, AND THIS YEAR IS NO EXCEPTION. WE’VE BROUGHT IN OUR WORD SPECIALIST TO CONDUCT THIS IMPORTANT INTERVIEW. PLEASE WELCOME OUR DIRECTOR OF CREATIVE COMMUNICATIONS, OWEN JONES. >> Owen: THANK YOU, INDIVIDUAL. LYDIA. THANKS. I’M LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE SITTING WITH TWO DEVELOPERS. YOU PRIMARILY WORK ON THE BEDROCK VERSION. >> I’M JASON MAJOR. ON BEDROCK FOR FOUR YEARS NOW. >> AIM ADRIAN AND I HELP DELIVER ADD ONS.

>> TODAY WE WILL TALK MOSTLY ABOUT THE ADD ONS. THEY EXIST IN A VERSION OF THE GAME WE DESCRIBE AS BEDROCK. CAN YOU GIVE ME A BRIEF ON WHAT THAT VERSION IS? >> BEDROCK IS WHAT WE INTERNALLY CALL THE VERSION OF MINECRAFT THAT RUNS ON THE MOST MOBILE DEVICES. iPHONE, ANDROID, KINDLE AND THE X BOX AND WE RECENTLY RELEASED SWITCH AND WINDOWS 10. >> AND PLAY ACROSS PLATFORM BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT ADDITIONS AS WELL, RIGHT? >> YES. >> WE ARE BEEN ADDING NEW THINGS TO THE BEDROCK VERSION OVER THE YEARS. WE ADDED TEXTURE PACKS AND SKINS AND NOW YOU CAN EVEN PUT ON THAT SO THERE IS LOADS OF COOL FEATURES IN THE VERSION WHICH WE ARE KIND OF PROUD OF. TODAY WE ARE TALKING ABOUT ADD-ONS WHERE YOU CHANGE THE GAME AND CUSTOMIZE IT YOUR JEFF WE ADDED THE ABILITY FOR PEOPLE TO COME IN AND THROUGH EDITING SIMPLE TEXT FILES THEY TAKE EXISTING MOBS IN THE GAME AND CHANGE THE BEHAVIORS AND GEOMETRY, THE SHAPE OF WHAT THEY LOOK LAKE AND MIX THEM UP AND MAKE FUN THINGS.

WE HAVE SEEN STUFF BUILT WITH THAT ALREADY. >> OVER TIME WE MANAGED TO GIVE PEOPLE MORE AND MORE POURER TO CREATE — POWER TO CREATE UNIQUE ENTITYS. >> WE ARE MAKING IT TO PEOPLE CAN ADD THEIR OWN NEW ENTITIES INSTEAD OF NEEDING TO OVERWRITE AN EXISTING ONE. IT GIVES USERS A LITTLE MORE POWER TO ADD WHAT THEY WANT. >> PREVIOUSLY IF I CHANGED THE LOOK — A CHICKEN IN THE GAME, AND IT BECAME A DUCK. IT WAS KIND OF REPLACED, THE CHICKEN. NOW YOU CAN HAVE BOTH. >> RIGHT. NOW WE HAVE A NEW SPAWN EGG FOR OUR NEW ENTITY DUCK. JUST AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT SOMEONE CAN CREATE USING OUR NEW FEATURE. AND BECAUSE IT AS NEW ENTITY IT HAS NEW RENDER AND A NEW SET AS WELL.

>> THAT IS SUPER AWESOME. THAT WILL GIVE FREEDOM TO PEOPLE TO CUSTOMIZE NOW. >> ONE OF THE COOL THINGS IS THE BABY DUCK WHEN IT COMES OUT. JUST EDITING SIMPLE FILES. YOU CAN PUT A SINGLE LINE OF TEXT TO SAY IF IT’S A BABY USE THIS TEXTURE, OTHERWISE USE THE OTHER TEXTURE AND GIVE CONTROL THERE NOW. >> THAT’S AWESOME. WE HAVE ALSO KIND OF LOOKED INTO HOW YOU CAN PLACE THESE NEW ENTITIES IN THE WORLD AS WELL, RIGHT? >> YEAH, SOX DEFINITELY LAKE IN THE PAST WITH ADD-ON YOU ARE CONSTRAINED BY THE THING THAT YOU OVERRODE DETERMINED WHERE IT SPAWNED. A POLAR BEAR WOULD ONLY SPAWN IN ICE FLATS AND CHALLENGING AND MARK PLACE CONTENT. AND YOU WERE LIKE IN MY WORLD I DON’T WANT CREEPERS TO SPAWN EVER. AND THERE IS NO WAY TO TURN THAT OFF. WE HAVE ANOTHER DATA DRIVEN TEXT FILE AND SPE SPECIFY UNDER THESE CONDITIONS OR THIS LIGHTING LEVEL. MORE LIKELY TO SPAWN IN THE RAIN AND STUFF LIKE THAT. >> I THINK YOU GUYS MADE A — >> ENCOUNTER THIS LITTLE GUY. I NEVER SPAWNED HIM MYSELF. HE HAS BIGGER FRIENDS. >> YOU CAN SEE THE KIND OF POWER ON THERE.

YOU CAN MAKE SOMETHING KIND OF PRETTY MUCH UNIQUE. >> CORRECT. >> YEP. AND HERE YOU SPAWN, THAT’S RIGHT. ANOTHER FEW FUTURE WE ARE ADDING. >> IN ADDITION TO GETTING A SPAWN EGG WE ALSO WHEN YOU ADD YOUR NEW ENTITY USING THE JSON FILE IT HOOKS UP TO THE COMMANDS AND USE IT IN SPAWNER BLOCKS AND EVERYTHING. >> AWESOME. VERY, VERY COOL. SO WE HAVE BEEN TALKING A BIT ABOUT THE FUNCTIONALITY OF THESE NEW ENTITIES WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY REALLY COOL AND VALUABLE. BUT WE ARE ALSO TRYING TO CHANGE HOW PEOPLE CAN VISUALIZE THEIR ENTITIES. HOW THEY CAN AFFECT HOW THEY LOOK AND FEEL IN THE GAME ALSO? >> RIGHT. SO SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE DONE IS WE HAVE MADE IT SO THAT IN ADDITION TO JUST A NEW ENTITY, WE DIDN’T WANT TO CONSTRAIN THE USERS TO USING ANY OF THE ANIMATIONS THAT EXIST WITH VANILLA ENTITIES. YOU CAN SPECIFY — YOU CAN ADD YOUR OWN NEW ANIMATIONS AND MIX AND MATCH EXISTING ONES AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE SEE WITH OUR NEXT GUY HERE.

>> YEAH, SO YOU MADE A KIND OF SKELETON KIND OF BEAST GUY HERE WE CAN SEE. >> THIS WAS A LOT OF FUN. WE WANTED TO SHOW OFF SOMETHING THAT IS O OBVIOUSLY NOT USING THE EXISTING ANIMATIONS IN THE GAME. THE UPPER TORSO. KICKS AT YOU AND STUFF LAKE THAT WHICH IS OBVIOUSLY NEW? >> KIND OF THE BODY OF A HORSE, THE TORSO OF A SKELETON AND NEW ANIMATION. >> I LIKE SKELETOR. >> COOL. THIS ALL LOOKS PRETTY FUN. I NOTICE YOU GUYS ARE MAKING KIND OF SCORPIONS AND SKELETONS AND STUFF. THOUGHT ABOUT MAKING ANY NICE ONES FOR THE GAME? >> THE NEXT ONE IS REALLY CUTE. THEY ARE SMALL AND FURRY. >> YEAH. >> THIS FIRST GUY BRINGS HIM UP. THE CUTE GUYS. THE NICE LITTLE SPIDERS THAT I ADDED IN. I THINK THEY ARE SUPER CUTE. >> THEY ARE NOT CUTE. >> AND BUT THIS WHOLE VIDEO SHOWING THE POWER OF WHAT YOU CAN BUILD WHEN YOU PULL IT ALL TOGETHER.

CUSTOM A ANIMATIONS AND CUSTOM RENDERING. AND A CUSTOM PARTICLE EFFECT. HACK IT UP TO SAY THIS EFFECT TRAILS AND PLAYS ON THIS GUY ALL THE TIME. AN EFFECT THAT PLAYS WHEN THEY GET SPAWNED AND COUPLE PHONE PHE WORLD. A MINI BOSS TYPE CRAZE CROSSROAD MOB. >> AMAZING YOU CAN PULL THAT OFF USING TEXT FILES. ARE THERE ANY LIMITATIONS TO HOW THEY WORK AT THE MOMENT? >> SIMILAR TO ADD-ONS BEFORE, YOU ARE STILL LIMITED IN JUST USING THE EXISTING BEHAVIORS IN THE GAME. THE THINGS THAT THE VANILLA MOBS CAN DO FOR THE MOST PART ARE AVAILABLE TO YOU.

IF YOU REALLY WANT TO DO SOMETHING COMPLETELY UNIQUE THAT NO MOB IN MINECRAFT HAS DONE BEFORE, THERE IS STILL LIMITS. WE ARE ACTUALLY ANNOUNCING THAT WE ARE HAVING OUR LONG-AWAITED SCRIPTING TECH PREVIEW COMING OUT THIS YEAR. THE FOCUS FOR THIS PREVIEW IS MORE AROUND — >> SO FOR THIS TECH PREVIEW THE FOCUS IS MUCH MORE AROUND MORE OF LIKE A MINI GAME HIGH LEVEL CONTROL ASPECT BUT THE GOAL IS TO START BEING ABLE TO BUILD BEHAVIORS. WE WANT TO GET HELP FROM PEOPLE TO START PLAYING WITH AND EXPERIMENTING WITH AND GETTING FEEDBACK ON. >> SOUNDS FANTASTIC. YOU CAN TELL PEOPLE ARE HAPPY ABOUT IT, THAT IS AWESOME. >> WHEN DID PLAYERS GET THEIR HANDS ON THE ADD-ON FEATURES? >> THE STUFF TODAY WILL BE NOW THE BETA IN OCTOBER AND AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE ON BEDROCK RATE LATER THIS YEAR.

>> FANTASTIC. THANK YOU SO MUCH. THAT IS REALLY AWESOME. >> SO FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW ADNA ADD-ONS WORK CHECK OUT MINECRAFT DETECT.NET. I HAVE TWO SPECIAL PEOPLE COMING ON WHO HAVE BEEN WORKING ON THE NEXT MINECRAFT UPDATE. PLEASE WELCOME JENS AND AGNES. HOW ARE YOU DOING? >> GREAT. >> ENJOYING THE SHOW SO FAR. >> YES. >> ABSOLUTELY. >> IT IS A LOT OF FUN. >> WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART SO FAR,I AGNES? >> I THINK THE COSTUME CONTEST. IT IS GREAT TO SEE THE LOVELY COSTUME CONTEST TOMS. I REALLY ENJOY THAT. >> AND IT IS COOL BECAUSE THE COSTUME CONTEST IS A LEGACY PART OF MINECON. ALWAYS BEEN A HIGHLIGHT FOR ME. I THINK IT IS CAL TO KEEP THAT GOING EVEN WITH THE NEW FORMAT, YOU KNOW. >> YES. >> WHAT ABOUT YOU, JENS? >> FOR ME, THE BEST PART IS WHERE THAT WE FINALLY CAN REVEAL MINECRAFT DUNGEONS. I CHECKED THE COMMENTS AND PEOPLE SEEM EXCITED AND CURIOUS. AND WE HAVE A SCREEN SHOT WE CAN SHOW. >> AWESOME. LET’S HAVE A LOOK. >> THIS IS AN ENVIRONMENT IN THE GAME THAT YOU CAN KIND OF EXPECT.

THIS IS A SCREEN SHOT FROM THE ACTUAL GAME AND YOU FIGHT YOUR WAY THROUGH. AND KIND OF LOOK AT DUNGEON CRAWLERS. >> IT IS KIND OF LIKE A TOP DOWN DUNGEON CRAWLER. TRAVELING AND HACKING UP MOBS. >> ABSOLUTELY. HACK AND SLASHING. >> ALL RIGHT, COOL. AND I GUESS YOU WILL TRAVEL TO DIFFERENT KIND OF PLACES AND NOT ALL SET IN ACTUAL DUNGEONS. >> NO, THERE IS A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT — WELL, AREAS AND ENVIRONMENTS. AND A LOT OF NEW REALLY COOL STUFF. SUPER EXCITED.

>> I CAN’T WAIT FOR US TO SHARE MORE INFORMATION ON THAT. COMING SOON. >> OKAY. SOLET TALK MORE ABOUT THE CORE GAME. ABOUT MINECRAFT ITSELF. YOU HAVE BEEN WORKING HARD ON THE NEXT MAJOR UPDATE. I’M SURE PEOPLE WILL BE EXTREMELY EXCITED TO HEAR WHAT WE HAVE BEEN WORKING ON. WHAT’S THE DEAL? >> YES, SO WE ALWAYS TRY TO FIND LIKE WHAT IS A GOOD THING TO UPDATE NEXT. AND THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAVEN’T BEEN REALLY IMPROVED A LOT SINCE THE ORIGINAL IMPLEMENTATION ALMOST SEVEN YEARS AGO. ACTUALLY, MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS AGO. THE THEME THIS TIME IS GOING TO BE VILLAGE AND PILLAGE. >> AWESOME. >> YEP! >> SO I MEAN IT IS ALMOST LIKE SEVEN YEARS SINCE WE HAVE DONE DRAMATIC CHANGE TO THE VILLAGES. AWESOME WE ARE FINALLY DOING THAT. >> YES. >> AGNES, WHAT ARE WE DOING WITH THE VILLAGES? HOW ARE WE IMPROVING THEM? >> WE HAVE DONE A LOT OF THINGS. WE ARE UPDATING THE ARCHITECTURE FOR ALL VILLAGES. >> SO THE VILLAGES THEMSELVES WILL HAVE DIFFERENT LOOKS DEPENDING ON THE BIOME? >> THAT’S RIGHT. >> AND I THINK — >> WE A VIDEO TO SHOW OFF. >> THAT IS ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! >> SO WE CAN SEE THE ACTUAL ARCHITECTS FOR THE VILLAGE IS INFLUENCED BY THE MATERIALS.

>> YES, YES. SO ALL OF THE ARCHITECTURE IS A ADAPTED TO THE BIOME THE VILLAGE IS IN. WE TRIED TO ONLY USE MATERIAL FROM THAT VILLAGE AND TRIED TO ADAPT TO THE CLIMATE. YOU SAW IN THE DESERT THE USE OF FLATS BECAUSE IT NEVER RAINS IN MINECRAFT DESERT WHICH MAKES SENSE. FOR THE PLAINS IT IS DEEPER FOR EXAMPLE. >> VERY COOL. AWESOME. >> WE HAVE ALSO BEEN LOOKING INTO THE INHABITANTS THEMSELVES. >> YES. AND THEY WILL GET NEW FANCY SKINS. >> LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THOSE. >> THAT’S — WE COULD HAVE UPDATED THE SOUNDS OF THE VILLAGE AS WELL. >> THAT SOUNDS AMAZING. >> AWESOME. TELL ME HOW THAT WORKS? >> SO THE SKINS ARE BIOME DEPENDENT AND ALSO GET UNIQUE DETAILS DEPENDING ON THE PROFESSION. THERE WILL BE LOTS OF DIFFERENT VARIATIONS. AND WE ALSO DO OTHER THINGS TO VILLAGERS AND THE VILLAGE MECHANICS. FOR EXAMPLE WE WANT THE VILLAGERS TO BE MORE INTELLIGENT SO WE WILL HAVE LIKE A SCHEDULED GOING TO THE WORK AND GOING TO A MEETING AND STUFF LIKE THAT. AND WE ARE UPDATING AND CREATING AS WELL. >> THAT SOUNDS AMAZING. BASICALLY EVERYTHING ABOUT THE VILLAGES IS GOING TO HAVE MORE, FEEL MORE UNIQUE AND MORE CONSISTENT FROM THE VILLAGES THEMSELVES TO WHERE THEY LIVE AND HOW THEY INTERACT WITH THE PLAYER.

>> YES. >> THAT’S AWESOME. OKAY. SO WE TALKED A LOT ABOUT VILLAGES AND THE COOL NICE FEATURES. BUT JENS YOU SAID IT WAS CALLED VILLAGE AND PILLAGE UPDATE. >> EXACTLY. I SHOULD MENTION THAT ONE OF THE PRINCIPLES IS THAT IT IS UP TO THE PLAYER TO BUILD THE WORLD. SO EVEN THOUGH THE VILLAGES WILL BE MORE KIND OF INTELLIGENT AND HAVE MORE OF THE PURPOSE REGARDING THEIR PROFESSION, IT IS UP TO THE PLAYER TO MAKE SURE THAT THEY HAVE A GOOD VILLAGE TO LIVE IN. AND MORE REASON FOR THIS NOW. IN ADDITION TO IMPROVING THE VILLAGES WE ARE INTRODUCING RAIDS. IT GETS COMPLICATED BUT WE HAVE VILLAGES, VILLAGERS, AND NOW INTRODUCING THE PILLAGER. >> COOL.

>> AND WE CAN TAKE A QUICK LOOK AT WHAT THOSE GUYS ARE UP TO. LET’S CHECK IT OUT. >> THAT LOOKS GREAT. >> YES, SO AS YOU CAN SEE, THE PILLAGERS ARE WREAKING HAVOC TOGETHER WITH THIS NEW MONSTER. AND THIS THING IS CURRENTLY WE REFER TO IT AS THE BEAST AND IT WILL JOIN THE RAIDS AND IT IS REALLY, REALLY TOUGH TO — IT IS QUITE A CHALLENGE TO TAKE DOWN. >> IT SEEMED TO BE MARK ITS WAY THROUGH THE WHOLE PLACE THERE.

>> ABSOLUTELY. >> YEAH. AND THEY WILL ATTACK VILLAGES AND YOU HAVE TO DEFEND AGAINST THEM. AND I WANT TO SAY LIKE THE ILLAGER BEAST IF YOU HAVE A NAME SUGGESTION I’M ALL EARS. BUT WE KIND OF HAVE GROWN FOND OF JUST CALLING IS THE BEAST. >> DO WE KNOW KIND OF WHY THESE PILLAGERS ARE DOING WHAT THEY ARE DOING? OR IS THAT NOT QUITE DIVIDED YET? >> IT IS ONE OF THE MINECRAFT MYSTERIES. >> OKAY. >> I ALSO NOTICE AND THE VIEWERS MIGHT HAVE NOTICE THEY WERE WIELDING SOMETHING THAT LOOKED POWERFUL AS WELL. WHAT WAS THAT IN THEIR HANDS? >> CROSS BOW. >> TELL ME ABOUT THE CROSSBOW? REPLACING THE BOW? >> THEY ARE CREATING A BALANCE. IT IS POWERFUL AND DEALS MORE DAMAGE AND THE ARROW GOES FURTHER BUT TAKES LONGER TO LOAD. >> OKAY. >> AND ALSO COMES WITH NEW ENHANCEMENTS. IT IS COOL. >> I THINK WE CHECK THAT OUT AS WELL. SHOW US THE VIDEO OF THE CROSSBOW. >> VERY COOL. AND THE CROSS BOW IS THAT GOING TO BE SIMILAR TO WHERE YOU HAVE TO DISCOVER IT IN THE WORLD? >> NO, YOU CAN CRAFT IT.

>> COOL. THAT IS A CRAFTABLE ITEM? >> YES. >> AND SAY THE KIND OF MULTISHOT THERE, IT THAT IS HOW THE ENHANCEMENTS WORK. >> THE ENHANCEMENTS AND FAST LOAD AND ALSO ANOTHER ONE. >> MORE TO COME. >> YES. >> CAL. >> THIS SOUNDS AMAZING. CAN YOU DIVULGE WHEN THE PLAYERS GET THE FEATURES? >> THE VILLAGE AND PILLAGE OFFICIALLY COME OUT EARLY NEXT YEAR. BUT WE — JAVA SNAP SHOTS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TRY OUT THINGS IN THE EXPERIMENTAL PHASE BUT WE WILL RELEASE SOME FEATURES BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS. >> SOME OF THE FEATURES OR SOME — >> SO, FIRST OF ALL, WE ARE GOING TO INTRODUCE CATS AS THEIR OWN MOB INSTEAD OF BEING — >> WE THOUGHT THAT OCELOTS AND CATS ARE AMAZING AND DESERVE TO BE THEIR OWN MOBS. THERE WILL BE STRAY CATS WALKING AROUND IN THE VILLAGES AND YOU CAN HAVE THEM AS A PET AND THEY CAN BRING — AND THE ARE REALLY SCARED OF CATS. >> WHAT KIND OF GIFTS DO THE CATS BRING YOU? DIAMONDS AND STUFF? >> NOT REALLY DIAMONDS. IT IS A SECRET. NOT DIAMOND. MORE CAT KIND OF GIFTSY I CAN SEE HERE YOU UPDATE. WE USED TO HAVE THREE CAT SKINS, RIGHT? >> EXACTLY.

SO WE ARE GOING TO ADD MORE SKINS FOR THE CATS. AND WE THOUGHT IT WAS FUN TO HAVE NINE SKINS. >> AND AS YOU MAY KNOW, ONE OF THE ORIGINAL SKINS TUXEDO CAT WAS BASED ON MAY WIFE’S OLD CAT. YOU CAN SEE THE QUESTION MARK THAT WE ARE GOING TO ASK THE COMMUNITY TO SUBMIT PICTURES AND HAVE KIND OF LIKE A COMPETITION. SO ONE COMMUNITY MEMBER IS GOING TO HAVE THEIR CAT IMMORTALIZED IN MINECRAFT. >> THEY CAN GET THEIR REAL LIFE CAT AND WE WILL MAKE IT INTO A MINECRAFT CAT AND THAT WILL BE THE NINTH CAT SKIN IN THE GAME? >> EXACTLY. SO THERE WILL BE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS EXACTLY HOW IT WILL WORK ON >> WEEKS.NET IN A F FEW WEAKS. >> THAT IS AMAZING. A PRETTY C COOL PRIZE. WE ARE GETTING CATS FOR THE CAT UPDATE BEFORE THE HOLIDAY. NOT THE OFFICIAL NAME, BY THE WAY. ANYTHING ELSE COMING ALONG WITH THOSE? >> WE ARE ADDING SCAFFOLDING. >> ONE OF THE LONGEST REQUESTED FEE TIRES, I THINK.

>> ABSOLUTELY. I REMEMBER IN MINECON LAS VEGAS WHICH WAS SEVEN YEARS AGO, DOINGLE THE MINECRAFT Q&A PEOPLE REQUREQUESTED SCAFFOLDING. TOOK A LITTLE WHILE. >> JUST SEVEN YEARS. IT’S FINE. >> HOW WILL THE SCAFFOLDING WORK? >> THE PURPOSE IS TO MAKE IT’SIER TO BUILD AND MAYBE NOT NEED THE WEIRD CONSTRUCTIONS TO BUILD ANYMORE. IT WILL BE FAST TO CLIMB UP. AND IF YOU REMOVE THE BOTTOM PART OF THE SCAFFOLDING COLUMN EVERYTHING WILL BREAK. IT IS REALLY FAST TO RAE MOVE IT WHEN YOU ARE DONE WITH THE FANCY BUILDING. >> GIVING PLAYERS TAUNTS TO MAKE BUILDS QUICKER AND EASIER AND GET TO THE GOOD STUFF QUICKER. >> YES. >> COOL. WHAT IS IT MADE OF? >> THEY ARE MADE OF BAMBA. >> A — BAMBOO. >> A GNAW ATEMPERATURE IN THE GAME. >> A NEW BAMBOO. THERE WILL BE LIKE BAMBOO FORESTS AND STUFF LIKE THAT? >> AND WHAT ELSE DO YOU USE THE BAMBOO FOR? >> WELL — >> ADORABLE. SO I THINK THAT IS PRETTY OB OBVIOUS WE ARE BRINGING PANDAS TO THE GAME.

TELL ME ABOUT THOSE. >> THEY ARE CUTE AND THEY ARE SILLY. AND WE ALSO REALLY WANT A PLACE TO CONNECT TO THE PANDAS SO WE THOUGHT THAT IF WE ADD LIKE DIFFERENT LIKE PERSONALITIES OR TRAITS TO THEM YOU WILL FEEL LIKE YOUR PANDA IS MORE UNIQUE. INDIVIDUALLY THERE WAS A PANDA WITH RED EYES. THAT IS AN AGGRESSIVE PANDA. YOU SHOULD NOT HURT AN AGGRESSIVE PANDA. >> YOU SHOULDN’T HURT ANY KIND OF PANDA. >> OF COURSE, NOT. BUT DON’T HURT PANDAS. BUT THE AGGRESSIVE ONE WILL PROBABLY BE A BIT UPSET. EXTRA UPSET. >> WHAT OTHER KIND OF TRAITS CAN THE PANDAS HAVE? >> THEY CAN BE, FOR EXAMPLE, LAZY AND PLAYFUL. AND THEN, YEAH, I HEARD RUMORS ABOUT ABOUT ONE THAT IS A BROWN PANDA. >> THAT SOUNDS A AMAZING. WHAT MADE YOU THINK TO INCLUDE PANDAS IN THE FIRST PLACE? >> WE HAVE CREATIVE WORKSHOPS AND LIST WHAT WE WANT TO INCLUDE IN THE NEXT UPDATE.

SINCE WE A HUGE COMMUNITY IN CHINA WITH 150 MILLION REGISTERED PLAYERS WE INVITED THE PARTNER NEXTEASE TO GIVE US FEEDBACK FROM THE CHINA COMMUNITY AND WHAT THEY WANTED TO SEE IN THE GAME AND OBVIOUSLY THEY PICKED THE GIANT PANDA. WE SENT OUR SOUND ENGINEER TO CHINA TO RECORD THE ACTUAL SOUNDS FROM THE ACTUAL PANDAS. >> AND WE ACTUALLY HAVE A LITTLE TRIP. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THAT. >> ABSOLUTELY. >> IT’S OKAY. >> I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO SPEAK PANDA LIKE THAT GUY WITH THE SOUND EFFECTS. THIS SOUNDS COMPLETELY AMAZE. I CAN’T WAIT TO GET OUR HANDS ON IT. REMIND ME AGAIN, WHEN ARE WE GETTING THESE THINGS? >> VILLAGE AND PILLAGE EARLY NEXT YEAR AND HOLIDAY UP DATE, CATS, PANDAS AND BAMBOO AND SCAFFOLDING. >> EARACHWE WE REACHED THE POINN THE SHOW.

YOU MUST BE EXCITED TO FIND OUT WHICH BIOME YOU ARE GOING TO UPDATE NEXT. >> DID I HEAR BIOME VOTE RESULTS? >> YOU DID. >> IS ANYBODY EXCITED TO FIND OUT WHICH ONE IT IS? >> YES. >> OKAY. SO WHO GETS TO DO THE HONORS? AGNES? OKAY. >> THIS IS VERY EXCITING. >> DRUM ROLL, PLEASE. >> WE HAVE A WINNER. AND THE WINNER IS TIGER! >> WOOO! >> TINY AGNES AND JENS ARE VERY EXCITED OVER THERE. >> WE ARE. >> AND THE FOXES ARE VERY EXCITED. >> EXCITED ABOUT UPDATING THE TIGER? >> ABSOLUTELY.

IT WILL BE FUN. >> IT WILL BE A LOT OF FUN. >> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHARING ALL OF THESE UPDATES WITH ME. AND FOR SHARING WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN TO MINECRAFT IN THE FUTURE. A QUICK LOOK AT THE RECAP AND SEE WHAT IS COMING TO MINECRAFT SOON. >> STAY TOWNED FOR THE POST SHOW RECAP FOLLOWED BY THE LIVE DEVELOPE PANEL BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND. AND WE ALSO HAVE AMAZING COMMUNITY PANELS GOING UP ON THE YOUTUBE CHANNEL AFTER THE SHOW. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT MADE MINECRAFT EARTH POSSIBLE. THANKS THANK YOU TO THE MINECRAFT TEAMS IN BOTH STOCKHOLM AND REDMOND WHO CONTINUE TO BRING NEW AND FUN EXPERIENCES TO MINECRAFT, TO THE MINECRAFT DUNGEONS TEAM FOR SHARING THE FIRST GLIMPSE OF OUR EXCITING NEW GAME, TO OUR SPECIAL GUESTS AND PANELISTS, TO KATE THE CHEMIST FOR BLOWING UP OUR STAGE, AND A HUGE THANK YOU TO MY AMAZING CO-HOSTS! >> IT TAKES A LOT TO PUT ON A SHOW LIKE MINECON EARTH.

AND GOODBYE! BLOOPS >> WELCOME BACK TO BACK STAGE HERE AT MINECON EARTH. THAT WAS AN INCREDIBLE SHOW. I HAVE TO SAY THIS WILL BE HARD IN 15 MINUTES. WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THIS. I’M JOINED BY REN DOG. HOW ARE YOU DOING? >> I’M FREAKING OUT RIGHT NOW. >> HOW ARE THE NOTES? BECAUSE MINE HAVE GOTTEN A BIT BIG. >> I HAVE SCRIBBLES GOING ON HERE. AMAZING STUFF COMING UP. >> A LOT COMING UP. >> HOW ARE YOUR NOTE? >> MY NOTES I TRY TO REMEMBER. I PUT THEM OVER THERE. SO I WILL REMEMBER THEM UP HERE. >> WE’LL GO — I THINK IF WE CAN GET THROUGH ALL OF IT. THERE IS SO MUCH. >> IT IS CRAZY. >> WE WERE WATCHING IN THE BACK STAGE STUDIO AND YOU GUYS WERE LIKE WHAT? >> I FREAKED OUT. >> IT WAS GOOD BUT KIND OF LIKE BACK-TO-BACK ANNOUNCEMENTS. START OFF WITH WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE ONE? WHAT WAS THE KIND OF BIGGEST ONE THAT YOU SAW THAT YOU THINK LIKE I’M TOTALLY WITH THAT.

THAT IS MY JAM? >> FIVE DAYS AGO, I WAS PLAYING ON A SERVER WITH MY FELLOW HERMITS AND WE WERE MAKING A STOCK EXCHANGE. PUTTING A BIKINI ON IT, STANDARD. >> RIGHT. >> OKAY. >> I WAS — >> IT HAPPENS. >> EXCHANGE. >> NOW I’M HERE ON THE COUCH AND I HAVE SEEN A GIANT LAND BEAST DECIMATE A VILLAGE. THAT HAS GOTTEN THE BLOOD FLOWING. LOOKS AWESOME. >> THAT LOOKS AMAZING. >> TERRIFYING. >> I’M SCARED OF THAT. BUT YALE EXCITED FOR THE CROSS BOWS AND THE MULTISHOT. >> THAT WAS JUST — >> EXCITINEXCITING SQUEAKS AND S WITH THE CROSS BOWS. STRANGE NOISES AROUND THE ENTIRE SHOW. I HAVE TO LOOK AT MY NOTES. START OFF WITH THE BIG, MINECRAFT DUNGEONS. >> WOW. >> THAT LOOKS SUPER FUN. >> MIND BLOWN. >> WHAT ARE WE THINKING? >> I LOVE THE FACT THAT IT LOOKS CLASS BASED LIKE THERE IS A MAGICIAN T OR WIZARD TYPE THING.

>> THAT IS YOUR THING. >> I’M A BIG RPG FAN. AND WE GET TO BE A WIZARD OR SOLDIER AND GO INTO DUNGEONS AND SLAY SERIOUS BEASTS. I’M A LITTLE EXCITED. >> I CAN SEE THAT. THE COUCH IS MODERATELY VYING UNDERNEATH YOU AS YOU TALK ABOUT IT. AND WE HAD SOME AMAZING GAME SHOWS. I THOUGHT THEY WERE BRILLIANT. THIS YEAR WAS SO, SO GOOD. >> I LOVE THE SLIME. >> WE SHOULD HAVE MORE SLIME. >> MORE SLIME NEEDED POURED ON TOP OF PEOPLE. SUGGEST THAT FOR NEXTEAR. >> THEY WERE COVERED IN IT, THOUGH. IT WAS ALL ON THE FLOOR. I FEEL SORRY FOR THE PERSON CLEANING THAT UP REALLY. >> I THINK THEY PUT A TARP DOWN, I THINK. >> FAIR ENOUGH. >> THE SCIENCE EXPERIMENT WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITES.

LIKE HOW DO I DO THAT AND HOW MUCH TROUBLE WILL I GET INTO IF I DID THAT IN MY FLAT. >> IT WILL BE ON THE CEILING. >> WHAT A MAGICAL FEW MOMENTS FOR BASICALLY MY FLAT MATE BEING CROSS WITH ME. WE DON’T RECOMMEND YOU DO IT. >> I ENJOYED THEM PLAYING WITH THE FLUFFY DISKS. >> THE PIXEL STUFF. >> TRYING TO MAKE A HOUSE IN 3D. >> I WOULD HAVE MADE THE RECIPES IN MINECRAFT. >> SOMETHING ABOUT BRINGING IT INTO THE REAL WORLD. LIKE WAIT, HOW DO I — >> HOW DO I DO THAT? >> I KNOW HOW TO DO IT IN MINECRAFT BUT THIS FEELS DIFFERENT.

>> I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THE SLIMY BIT. >> OKAY. >> WERE THOSE REAL FISH? >> NO! >> NO? >> WE CAN’T USE REAL FISH. >> LIKE IN A SALMON CASUAL SALMONY THEY LOOKED REALLY REAL BECAUSE THEY WERE KIND OF COVERED IN SLIME. >> ILE RETREAT BACK INTO MY IMAGINATION. >> GOOD THAT THEY LOOKED WELL. THEY FOOLED YOU. WELL DONE, CREW. I REALLY LOVED WHEN WE HAD THE KIND OF LIKE TUTORIAL OF HOW TO DO YOUTUBE VIDEOS.

BUT WE HAD THE WHERE THEY CUT BACK TO EVERYONE’S FIRST VIDEO. OH, MY GOD, MARTYN. YOU LOOK ABOUT 10 YEARS. >> IT WAS SO CUTE. >> YEAH. >> THE CUTENESS LEVEL OF MINECON 2018 IS THROUGH THE ROOF? >> IT IS. >> INSANE. THE CATS. GOOD TIMES IS PICKING UP RIGHT NOW. >> GOOD TIME WITH SCAR CAT J. WE NEED THAT. >> WE NEED A J VIDEO. >> I REALLY LIKE TO — I THINK SOMETIMES PEOPLE ARE SCARED TO TRY SOMETHING AND TO START SOMETHING ESPECIALLY WITH SOMETHING CREATIVE. AND LIKE MINECRAFT HAS SO MANY LIKE INCREDIBLY TALENTED CREATORS OUT THERE. >> IT’S CRAZY. >> LIKE IF I WAS SITTING AT HOME AND I WAS GOING TO DO THAT I WOULD BE LIKE WHAT IS THE POINT, EVERYTHING IS REALLY GOOD AND WHAT I MAKE IS NOT GOING TO GET THERE. MORE ABOUT MUST BE THE SAME FOR YOU GUYS.

LEARN THROUGH DOING AND DECIDING TO MAKE CONTENT. YOU ARE NEVER GREAT. NOBODY IS GREAT. IF I SHOWED YOU MY FIRST EVER TV THING I DID, IT SO CRINGE, I WOULD SHRIVEL UP INTO A BLACK HOLE AND SUCK IN THE REST OF THE ROOM. IT WAS AWFUL. >> CRINGE LEVELS OVER 9,000. >> DO YOU ACTUALLY — I TRY TO SEAR CLEAR. I DON’T REALLY WANT TO GO BACK. >> DON’T WATCH IT AT ALL? >> NO, I DON’T WANT TO. I DIDN’T HAVE MY FACE ON ANYTHING. I STILL DON’T. BUT, YEAH, LIKE I COULD IMAGINE FOR PEOPLE WITH THEIR FACES ON IT AS WELL. SEEING HOW MUCH YOUNGER YOU WERE.

>> REMEMBER THE PAST. WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG? >> BACK IN THE DAY WHEN WE DIDN’T HAVE DIORITE? >> I HEARD WE HAVE SPECIAL GUESTS JOINING US. >> UH-OH. >> DON’T BE TOO SCARED. >> OMGCHAD AND AUREYLIAN. JOIN US ON THE SOFA. YOU MADE IT. >> GRAND TO BE HERE. >> SIT. >> WAS THAT INTENSE OR WHAT? >> INCREDIBLY INTENSE BUT SO FUN. >> YOUR HANDS. >> THE HARD PART IS OVER NOW. >> WAS THERE ANY RESIDUAL ADRENALINE STILL PUMPING? >> WE HAD A QUIET MOMENT BACK STAGE AS THEY WERE DOING THE RECAP AND WE GOT KIND OF EMOTIONAL. I THINK ALL OF THE NERVES GOT OUT OF THE WAY THERE. WE HAVE BEEN HERE FOR SIX DAYS PREPPING. >> AND ON TOP OF THAT MONTHS BEFORE HAND WE DID MEETINGS IN NEW YORK, MEETINGS IN SWEDEN.

>> SWEDEN. >> REALLY? >> JET SET? >> JET SET. >> EXACTLY. OH, MAN. WE MET EVERYBODY AND DID ALL OF THE THINGS. >> THE JET LAG IS SO BAD. >> I WAS ONLY BUSINESS ON FIRST. IT WAS HORRIBLE. >> LET PEOPLE KNOW THAT LIKE THE MINECRAFT TEAM REALLY CARES. >> THEY DO. THEY HAVE BEEN FOCUSING ON THIS. IT WASN’T JUST A THING THEY THREW TOGETHER THIS WEEKEND. AND THEY CAME TO US AND WE PITCHED IDEAS. >> YEP. >> IT WAS A REAL COLLABORATION AND IT WAS A LOT OF FUN TO DO. >> YEAH. >> IT LOOKED LIKE FUN. >> IT WAS. AND THE BEST PART WAS FOR US IS THAT EVERYONE THERE, WE HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR A LONG TIME AND PLAYED MINECRAFT FOR SO LONG. WE WERE LIKE WE KNOW THEM AND WE ARE COMFORTABLE. EVERYBODY’S SEGMENT WAS SO MUCH THEIR PERSONALITY. WE EACH BROUGHT SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO THE SHOW.

>> I’M SO PROUD OF EVERYBODY. >> YOU GUYS ABSOLUTELY SMASHED IT. >> THANK YOU. >> I WANTED TO COME TALK TO YOU. >> SO NOTES. >> THAT IS A LOT OF THINGS. >> A LOT OF THINGS HAPPENING. WERE THERE KIND OF ANY KIND OF STANDOUT FAVES THEY MENTIONED? >> I HAVE MINE. >> WE DIDN’T. >> NO? >> ANY TIME WE WERE BACK STAGE THEY WOULD COME AND TURN THE T Vs OFF. >> AND TURN THE VOLUMES DOWN. >> CLAD IS IN THE ROOM? >> HE TWEETS EVERYTHING. TURN THEM OFF. >> I HEARD HE WAS A TATTLETALE WHEN HE WAS A CHILD AND HE MIGHT LEAK OUT THE INFORMATION.

>> A LOT OF IT WAS NEWS TO US. >> WE DIDN’T. SO WE WERE — AND WHAT IS FOR US, I’M GOING TO HAVE TO GO BACK AND RAE REWATCH IT. WE WERE DOING COSTUME CHANGES AND WE MISSED A LOT OF THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS. WE CAUGHT BITS AND PIECES. >> I WROTE NOTES BUT NOW IT IS QUITE ILLEDGEIBLE. >> ALL JUST PANDAS. >> OH, PANDAS. >> SNEEZE. >> AND WHEN THEY SNEEZE? >> THAT WAS SO SNEAKY JUST CHUCKING IT IN. >> YOU THINK THE VILLAGE AND PILLAGE UPTATE. >> WE’RE GOOD. WE’RE DONE. WE HEARD ABOUT DUNGEONS. THAT IS PLENTY.

OH, ONE MORE THING. PANDAS. >> PANDAS. >> SNEEZING PANDAS. >> AND IT WASN’T JUST THAT THEY PUT IN PANDAS. THERE WAS A WHOLE VIDEO PHONE M. AND SIX MONTHS AGO WE FLEW TO CHINA. AND NOBODY KNEW. LAKE NONE OF US HAD ANY CLUE. >> THEY ARE SO GOOD AT KEEPING THINGS QUIET. >> SO GOOD AT IT. >> WHAT DID YOU THINK OF DUNGEONS? >> IT COULD BE A REALLY FUN EXPERIENCE.

I DO A LOT OF TUTORIAL VIDEOS. I SEA FRONTLINE THAT — >> YOU IN THE TRENCHES. >> YALE IN THE TRENCHES. PEOPLE LOVE MINECRAFT SOMETIME THEY JUST WANT AN EXPERIENCE. THEY DON’T WANT TO HAVE TO INSTALL A MAP AND GET THE RIGHT ADD-ON AND ADD THE TEXTURE PACK. THIS COULD BE A GRAND EXPERIENCE FOR PEOPLE THAT LOVE THE STORY AND THE SETTING. WE DIDN’T GET TO SEE A LOT. I HAVE ONLY SEEN WHAT EVERYONE ELSE SAW ON STREAM. I HAVE NO IDEA IN THERE A MINING ABILITY. CAN YOU MINE UNDER? I’M NOT SURE.

JUST A FUN THING FOR EVERYONE TO EXPERIENCE IS GREAT. LOVE IT. >> WHAT WOULD YOU SAY FOR EACH OF YOU IS THE ONE THING YOU WILL TAKE AWAY AND MAKE CONTENT FOR YOUR CHANNEL? LIKE THE FAVORITE THING OF WHAT WAS KIND OF UPDATED? >> I THINK I JUST WANT A LAZY PANDA SITTING IN THE CORNER. JUST PANDAS. JUST PANDAS. >> THEY HAVE THE DIFFERENT PERSONALITIES. I WANT THE LAZY ONE SITTING THERE FROM YOU DON’T WANT THE RED EYE ONE. >> NO, IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY HIT IT. >> AT THE TOP OF MY LIST HERE I HAVE — >> YOU HAVE AN ACTUAL LIST? >> YOU MADE LISTS. >> I AM LITERALLY SEAING THE TOP OF HIS LIST! >> CHAD. >> THEY CAME TO ME. AFTER WE HAD PITCHED. WE ALL PITCHED OUR IDEA. >> AND YOU WERE LIKE I WANT LIKE HUGH JACKMAN. >> THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT WE SAID. >> EXACTLY WHAT WE WENT FOR? >> EXACTLY WHAT WE WENT FOR? >> I WAS TOTALLY JOKING. >> WE PITCHED THE IDEA. THEY COME BACK AND THEY GO, YOU KNOW, WE WOULD REALLY LAKE TO TAKE THIS A LITTLE BIT OVER THE TOP. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH DOING THIS.

>> I ALREADY HAVE GOT THE JACKET. >> I WAS LIKE 110% LET’S GO. >> IF ANYONE IS GOING TO DO, IT’S CHAD. >> WASN’T THAT INCREDIBLE. THEY HAVE A COSTUME TEAM AND THEY ARE SO GOOD. >> AND IT WAS FANTASTIC. CROSSBOW IS PROBABLY MY FAVORITE THING AND THE LAND BEAST. >> I GOT SAD WHEN IT TRAMPED ALL OF THE CROPS. ALL THAT WORK. >> ADORABLE. AND MINECRAFT AS OPPOSED TO THE FACT THAT YOU GOT A REALLY COOL OUTFIT YOU GET TO TAKE HOME. I MEAN THAT IS — >> I THINK THAT. >> THE SMALLEST UPDATE. GIVING CATS MORE SKINS. >> NINE LIVES. >> AND A 10TH. I WILL THROW MY COMMUNITY A FIRE. >> ME AND HIM AND MARTYN BECAUSE WE ALL OWN CATS. IT WILL BE MY CAT AND NO, MY CAT. WE STARTED NEGOTIATING LIKE MY CAT’S FEET AND YOUR CAT’S COLOR AND YOUR CAT”S FACE AND THEN AL OUR CATS. >> LIKE A U.N. BROKERAGE DEAL. >> I WAS THINKING THEY HAD THE BIG REVEALVILLE THAT SAID WHAT IT WAS GOING TO BE.

>> CHAD’S CAT. >> I WAS HOPING WAFFLES THE CAT AS THE 10TH CAT. AND LYDIA IS LIKE SOMETHING IS WRONG. >> SO THAT WOULD BE REALLY EXCITING. BUT YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO WIN. >> I DON’T THINK THAT IS — >> IS THAT BECAUSE YOU HAVE A CAT? HAS THIS ALREADY BEEN ON THE STREAM? >> I LIVE IN LONDON. I DON’T HAVE CATS. >> DANGIT. >> YALE REALLY EXCITED ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT IS GOING TO BE UPDATED AND SEE WHAT YOU CREATE FROM THE WONDERMENT. YOUR VIDEOS WILL GO — YOU ARE DANCING AROUND THE KITCHEN. SOME KIND OF RING MASTER. >> FANCY FRIDAYS. >> CHECK OUT MY TOP HAT. >> YOU MIGHT LOOK GOOD IN A TOP HAT — YOU DO LOOK GOOD IN A TOP HAT. >> DISCOVERED HIS NEW PERSONA TODAY.

>> A RING MASTER ALL OF THE TIME WITH THOSE PANTS AND BOOTS. THE BOOTS WERE SOMETHING ELSE? >> HOW HE PUT THE BOOTS ON AND EVEN WALKED DIFFERENTLY? >> STRUTTED AROUND. >> HAD THIS LIKE FLUID LAKE AND LIKE ANDNOW I’M GOING TO WALK TE BATHROOM? >> THAT IS THE YOU YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BECOME. >> EXACTLY. >> HAVE ALL THESE KIND OF WEIRD — >> YES. >> TO GET BACK TO MINECRAFT, ONE THING THAT WAS MENTIONED THAT WAS GLOSSED OVER KIND OF IS ADD-ONS YOU CAN ADD ANY CREATURES IN THE GAME. AND THAT IS — I KNOW PEOPLE WHO ARE MAP MAKERS WHO ARE TECHNICAL INTO MINECRAFT. TO BE ABLE TO — STA SOMETIMES Y A VILLAGER HAS A TRADING MEAN MU AND THAT IS IT.

BASICALLY YOU HAD THOSE FIVE MOBS TO WORK WITH. OR MAYBE YOU NEEDED TO BE ABLE TO RIDE IT. SO THAT IS ONLY THE PILL AND ONLY THE HORSE. YOU KNOW, YOU HAD TO — ONLY THE PIG AND HORSE YOU HAD TO EDIT MOBS INSTEAD OF CREATELE WHOLE NEW ONES. THAT IS A SMALL FEATURE THAT IS REALLY COOL. >> I’M PUMPED FOR THE FIRE PLACE. >> YES. >> I LOVE HOW YOU GUYS GET REALLY OBSESSED ABOUT ONE TINY LITTLE THING. >> BERRIES. >> LAKELIKE THE CHEST THING. >> THIS MAY NOT BE HOW IT WORKS BUT I HAVE A SUSPICION THAT WE NOW PERHAPSES HAVE A WAY TO SLEEP WITHOUT A BED. >> SLEEP NEXT TO THE FIRE PLACE. >> OR MAYBE THE CATS CAN REEL CHARGE THEIR HEALTH. OR DOGS NEAR CATS TO — >> I HOPE THAT THE FIRE EMITS MORE LIGHT THAN ANY OTHER LIGHT BLOCK.

THAT WOULD BE COOL. >> SPEAKING OF FIRE, THE MOST TENUOUS SEG FIRE. >> YOU ARE ALL FIRED, GET OUT. >> BASICALLY YES. WE HAVE THE DEVELOPER PANEL READY TO GO UPSTAIRS. THANK YOU SO MUCH TO ALL OF YOU GUYS. I WILL BE BACK AFTER THE DEVELOPER PANEL WITH LYDIA TO CLOSE OUT THE WHOLE SHOW. WE WILL SEE YOU VERY, VERY SOON. THANKS, GUYS. >> CHEERS. >> BYE! >> WELCOME TO THE MINECRAFT DEVELOPER PANEL WHERE WE WILL ANSWER QUESTIONS FROM THE COMMUNITY. START OFF WITH BASIC INTRODUCTIONS. I’M ADRIAN. I WILL BE THE MODERATOR. >> ANITA, PRODUCER ON BEDROCK. >> NATHAN DEVELOPER. >> JASON. >> CORY I’M A DEVELOPER ON THE JAVA EDITION. >> ALL RIGHT. AND WITH THAT WE WILL GET GOING WITH THE QUESTIONS. SO THE FIRST QUESTION WE GOT HEAR IS DOES MOJANG THINK OF KEEPING MINECRAFT JAVA ADDITION UP TO DATE WITH THE ADDITION AS LONG AS IT EXISTS? >> RIGHT NOW WE ARE CODEVELOPING AND MAKE SURE THAT ALL OF THE PLAYERS ACROSS ALL PLATFORMS GET THE SAME FEATURES AND UPDATES AT THE SAME TIME.

MAY NOT COME OUT ON THE SAME DAY EXACTLY BUT IN THE SAME RANGE OF ONE TO TWO MONTHS. >> ALL RIGHT. SO ROUGHLY SIMILAR TO WHAT WE GOT GOING WITH UPDATE AQUATIC? >> THAT’S RIGHT. >> SOUNDS GREAT. THAT I THAN, DO YOU AGREE WITH THIS? >> I COMPLETELY AGREE. THE CO-DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY WE TRIED TO UPDATE AQUATIC. THAT WAS THE FIRST UPDATE THAT WAS HALF DESIGNED IN STOCKHOLM AND HALF IN REDMOND. TRY AND MAKE SURE THIS IS A PLATFORM STILL WORTH PLAYING. >> SIMILAR TO THE UPDATE AQUATIC, VILLAGE AND PILLAGE WILL BE SIMULTANEOUSLY RELEASED ROUGHLY? PERFECT. LET’S MOVE ON TO THE NEXT QUESTION. THIS IS FROM THE CHINA COMMUNITY. WILL NATURAL DISASTERS HAPPEN IN MINECRAFT SUCH AS TYPHOON, BLIZZARDS OR EARTHQUAKES.

>> WHILE THEY ARE COOL, ONE OF THE KEY FEATURES OF MINECRAFT THAT WE LA LIKE TO FOLLOW IS THT THE PLAYER HAS TO CAUSE THE EVENTS IN THE GAME TO HAPPEN. LAKE IF YOU HAVE A TYPHOON OR EARTHA SORT OF DISRUPTS THE GAME AND CAUSES DESTRUCTION THAT THE PLAYER IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR. THAT IS NOT REALLY WHAT WE WANT EVEN THOUGH THOSE THINGS COULD BE COOL. >> BACK THREE YEARS AGO, I DID IMPLEMENT A TORNADO AND IT WAS SUPER COOL AND I WAS SUPER EXCITED AND FUN STUFF GOING ON WITH IT. AND WE STARTED SORT OF THINKING ABOUT IT AND WE’RE LIKE YOU KNOW, THAT WOULD REALLY SUCK TO BE IN A WORLD AND WORKING ON A HOUSE FOR FIVE YEARS AND A RANDOM TORNADO COMES DOWN AND DESTROYS THE WHOLE THING.

IT DIDN’T FEEL LIKE AND WE ENDED UP ABANDONING THAT WORK. >> IT DID HAPPEN TO YOU THAT A TORNADO DESTROYED YOUR HOUSE? >> PRODUCTIONALLY. >> JUST WENT ON WITH YOUR — >> YEP. >> ALL RIGHT. NEXT ONE THEN IS ABOUT BUGS. SO WHAT GOES INTO FIXING A BUG? ANITA, CAN YOU GIVE US INFO ON THAT? >> BUGS COME FROM LOTS OF DIFFERENT PLACES. WE FIND THEM INTERNALLY. PLAYERS WILL REPORT THEM.

FOR THE PLAYER SOMEONE SPECIFICALLY, PLAYERS CAN PUT THEM INTO YOUR BUG DATABASE AND THEN EVERY TWO WEEKS WE REVIEW THEM ALL AND REVIEW THE FEATURES THAT PEOPLE WANT, TOO. AND LOOK AT THEM AND SEE WHAT KIND OF IMPACT THEY HAVE AND HOW THEY STACK UP AGAINST OTHER THINGS THAT WE WANT TO DO AND THEN FIGURE OUT HOW WE WANT TO TACKLE THEM. SO AFTER THAT, THAT KIND OF GOES INTO THE DEVELOPMENT SIDE OF HOW WE ACTUALLY GO FIX THEM. JASON? ONCE WE DECIDE WHICH BUGS TO PRIORITY IZE WE SEE DEE SIDE THE APPROACH PREP TEAM TO DO THAT AND FIND OUT WHICH KNOWS THE CODE BASE BEST TO AVOID INTRODUCING NEW BUGS BECAUSE WE WANT TO AVOID THAT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. ONCE THOSE COME IN WE TRY TO REPRO IN AND SOMETIMES WE WILL GET THE TEST TEAM TO TRY TO REPROTHE BUG FOR US.

WE WILL REACH BACK OUT TO THE COMMUNITY AND SAY ANYONE HITTING THIS BUG, SEND US YOUR LEVEL FOR THE REALLY HARD TO REPRODUCE. AND GET FIXES AND SHIP IN THE NEXT UPDATEY. >> A BUG FROM THE COMMUNITY, THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS HAVING THE REPROSTEPS. >> DEFINITELY. >> WE WILL FIX WAY MORE BUGS IF WE GET REPROSTEPS. >> CORY, TALK ABOUT HOW WE FIX BUGS? THE JAVA EDITION? >> WE HAVE AN AWESOME COMMUNITY THAT HELPS US COLLECT BUGS YOU ALL AND THEN THE SMALLER GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS THAT HELP US TAKE THE BUGS THAT THE COMMUNITY POSTS AND THEN HELP PRIORITIZE AND DECIDE MAYBE THEY ARE WORKING AS INTENDED ALREADY AND THEN COMPILE THE BUGS INTO A LIST AND END THOSE TO ADRIAN AND THE DEVELOPERS ON THE TEAM AND ADRIAN HELPS PRIORITIZE THEM AND HELPS THE DEVELOPERS DECIDE WHICH BUGS WE ARE GOING TO FIX FIRST.

>> THAT SOUNDS GREAT. MOVE ON TO THE NEXT QUESTION. SO THE NEXT QUESTION IS WILL THERE EVER BEEN BROWN MUSHROOMS OR MOOSH-ROOMS IS WHAT I’M SAYING? >> CORY? >> YOU LOOK EXCITE. >> YES, WE WILL ADD BROWN MUSH-ROOMS. >> REALLY? >> YES. JUST BECAUSE OF THAT QUESTION. >> WE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT. >> OKAY. WE CAN MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ONE. WHAT IS THE HARDEST FEATURE TO GET TO WORK ACROSS SO MANY PLATFORMS? ANITA, DO YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT THAT ONE? >> FOR BEDROCK — WE HAVE SO MANY PLATFORMS AND I WOULD SAY THE HARDEST FEATURES ARE THE INPUT ONES MOST GENERALLY BECAUSE THERE IS TOUCH THAT WE HAVE TO CONSIDER, VR, THERE IS KEYBOARD AND JUST GETTING THAT EXPERIENCE RIGHT FOR OUR PLAYERS IN ALL OF DIFFERENT WAYS YOU CAN INTERACT WITH MINECRAFT. I KNOW ONE OF THE ONES THAT JENS AND AGNES TALKED ABOUT WHAT WAS THE SCAFFOLDING. INTERESTING HOW WE MOVE THROUGH THAT AND HOW WE CAN FIGURE THAT OUT. WE DID A LOT OF INTERNAL PROTOTYPES AND THINGS LIKE THAT. EXCITED TO HAVE THAT COME OUT FOR US, TOO. OUTSIDE OF INPUT, ALSO PERFORMANCE BECAUSE WE A WIDE RANGE OF DEVICES FROM A LOT OF LIKE LOW END DEVICES TO ONES THAT ARE SUPER POWERFUL AND WE SORT OF MAKE SURE THAT THAT EXPERIENCE IS GOOD FOR EVERY PLAYER THAT PLAYS MINECRAFT.

SO JASON, I KNOW YOU HAVE SPECIFIC EXAMPLE ABOUT THAT. >> PERFORMANCE IS ALWAYS AN INTERESTING CHALLENGE WITH THE WIDE RANGE LIKE WE’LL RUN ANYWHERE FROM A 6-YEAR-OLD IPHONE UP TO THE LATEST AND GREATEST PC. AND SO ONE OF THE INTERESTING EXAMPLES WE DEVELOP ON PCs AND WE HAD BUBBLE COLUMNS GET PUT INTO THE GAME AND EVERYTHING WAS GREAT AND THIS IS AWESOME AND BUBBLE COLUMNS ARE COOL. THEN WE TRIED RUNNING THEM ON PHONES AND THEY WEREN’T RUNNING QUITE SO WELL. WE LAD TO COME UP WITH A NEW SOLUTION WHICH WAS BASICALLY LAKE ON THE BLOCK PUT AN ANIMATED TEXTURE AND PUT A TOGGLE IN THE GAME TO CONTROL.

I BELIEVE WE DID. YOU HAVE A TOGGLE? >> UM-H’M. >> CHOOSE WHICH APPROACH YOU WANT AND YOU CAN SEE IT. AND THE CHEAPER WAY FOR THE MACHINE AND THE MORE EXPENSIVE WAY WITH THE BUBBLES. >> THE PERFORMANCE EVERYTHING THERE IT WAS A PART WHICH YOU REPLACED WITH A TEXTURE. I MEAN YEAH OVER 10 PLATFORMS THAT RUNS BEDROCK RIGHT NOW AND GETTING PERFORMANCE UP TO DATE, I GUESS IT MUST BE HARD.

>> UM-H’M. >> SO YEAH, LET’S GO ON WITH THE NEXT QUESTION. IS THERE ANYTHING YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO ADD TO THE GAME THAT YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO? DO YOU WANT TO START WITH THAT ONE? >> SURE. I REMEMBER WAY, WAY, WAY BACK IN MY FIRST ENTRY INTO MINECRAFT I MADE A MOD FOR MINECRAFT AND THIS IS LIKE 2011. THIS IS UNKNOWN TERRITORIES BACK THEN. MY MOD WAS JUST VERY SIMPLE. IT WAS YOU COULD BUILD A PORTAL FROM ONE PLACE AND TAKES YOU TO ANOTHER PLACE. YOU GET TO SELECT WHERE IT WAS. BECAUSE I’M A HUGE NERD I CALLED IS THE STARGATE AND IT WAS GREAT. WHEN I JOINED MINECRAFT THEY HAD A — THE ACTUAL TEAM TO DEVELOP THE GAME. I PROMISED MY FRIENDS, I VOWED ONE DAY I WILL BRING STARGATE THAT MINECRAFT. YEAH, ONE DAY. >> JASON, ANY EXAMPLES? >> I LOVE ADDING, SO I TALLEY BUILT THIS GIANT SPREADSHEET WITH LIKE 80 MOBS THAT I PROPOSED THAT I WANTED TO ADD TO THE GAME AND CAME UP AND THIS ONE COULD SPAWN IN THIS BIOME AND THIS COULD SPAWN IN THIS AND THEY COULD DROP IN THE GAME.

WE WILL PROBABLY NEVER ADD ALL OF THEM. I’M HOPEFUL SOME WILL MAKE THEIR WAY IN. I KNOW WE WILL NEVER GET OUGHT OF THEM IN THERE. >> Lydia: AN >> ANITA, I KNOW YOU ARE NOT A DEVELOPER. >> STILL A HARDCORE MINECRAFT PLAYER. LOTS OF THINGS I WOULD LOVE TO ADD. I PLAY AT HOME WITH MY FAMILY A LOT AND WE DO COLLABORATIVE CREATIVE BUILDING. WE GOT FOUR PLAYERS. BUILDING WORLDS TOGETHER. AND I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE LIKE A COLLABORATIVE LIKE COLOR PALLETS AND BLOCK PALLETS. ANYTHING LIKE THAT THAT MAKES IT EASIER TO COLLABORATE WITH OTHER PEOPLE BUILDING. >> THAT WOULD BE SUPER COOL. CORY, WHAT WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE? YOU ARE FAIRLY NEW ON THE TEAM BUT YOU PROBABLY HAVE TONS OF THINGS YOU WANT TO DO. >> YALI’M A LITTLE DISI APPOINTD THAT YOU ALL DIDN’T VOTE FOR PALM TREES TO BE ADDED. IT IS OKAY BECAUSE THEY WILL BE ADDED EVENTUALLY. I’M GLAD THAT THEY ARE PART OF THE VOTE BECAUSE NOW I GET TO ADD WHAT I ALWAYS WANTED TO ADD TO THE GAME.

>> YEAH. >> EVENTUALLY WE 8 SEE THAT AS WELL. >> EVENTUALLY. >> WE CAN MOVE ON TO THE NEXT QUESTION. THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE SUPER DUPER GRAPHICS PACK. MAYBE YOU CAN ANSWER THAT, JASON? >> WE SHOWED THAT OFF AT LAST MINECON. IT PROVED TO BE MORE CHALLENGING GETTING EVERYTHING WORKING TOGETHER. WE ARE HEAVILY WORKING ON THE GRAPHICS ENGINE ON THINGS AND EVENTUALLY WE WILL GET UPDATES OUT AND GET A STATUS UPDATE ON IT. >> THANKS FOR THE UPDATE. NEXT QUESTION, ANY HOPE FOR THE FURNACE MINE CARD. I KNOW YOU — MINE CART. >> YOU HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT MINE CARTS IN GENERAL.

>> IT’S KIND OF A PROBLEM BECAUSE DIFFERENT WAYS. WE KIND OF I’M AREN’T VERY HAPPY WITH THE MAIN CARTS IN GENERAL CONSIDERATION WE TRIED TO MAKE THEM MORE RELEVANT AND FASTER AND LOOK AT THE DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF MINE CARTS. THERE WAS ENDER LIMITATIONS. ONE DAY WE WANT TO REVISIT THE ENTIRE MINE CART SYSTEM AND FIND A GOOD PLACE FOR THEM TO SIT. I DON’T KNOW WHERE THIS THAT WILL BE. IF YOU HAVE INDIVIDUALS POST THEM TO THE FEEDBACK SITE.

>> OR TWEET THEM. >> THE OTHER MINE CARTS ON BEDROCK WE ACTUALLY LOOKED AT THE FURNACE MINE CART AND WE CAN’T JUSTIFY SPENDING NIL TIME ON THIS BECAUSE WE LACKED AND THEY ARE JUST INFERIOR IN PRETTY WELL EVERY WAY TO THE POWERED RAIL SYSTEM. AND YOU CAN DO SO MUCH MORE. YOUD A ISSUES WITH DIRECTIONAL STUFF ON THE CARTS AND THINGS LIKE THAT AND WE WERE JUST LIKE WE’LL FIGURE OUT A BETTER VERSION OF THIS ONE DAY. >> I THINK THIS IF HE COULD LIKE TURN ON AND OFF, THAT MIGHT BE A BIT MORE INTERESTING. RIGHT NOW THEY HAVE THIS CRAZY BUG WHERE THEY DON’T KNOW WHICH WAY IS FORWARD. THEY WILL JUST LIKE SUD TENLEY JUST DECIDE, I’M GOING TO GO THE OTHER WAY. >> ALL RIGHT. SO THEN EVENTUALLY WE WILL START SEEING UPDATE FOR MINE CARTS IN GENERAL AND NOT JUST THE FURNACE MINE CART. >> YEAH. >> SOUNDS GOOD. LET’S GO ON WITH THE NEXT QUESTION. THIS IS BEDROCK CENTRIC. THIS IS ABOUT WILL SHIELDS BE ADDED TO BEDROCK.

ANITA, DO YOU WANT TO SPEAK TO THAT? >> SHIELDS. SO WE DO WANT TO ADD THEM. IT IS JUST A MATTER OF FIGURING OUT WHEN WE CAN ADD THEM. BUT IT IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING THAT WE WANT TO ADD. >> OKAY. >> I THINK THAT KIND OF TIES TO THE COMMENT ANITA MADE EARLIER ABOUT INPUT. ACTUALLY LIKE ON A PC, YOU CAN DO THE LEFT BUTTON AND RIGHT BUTTON AND THINGS LIKE THAT. ON TOUCH IT GETS A LITTLE TRICKIER, HUGH TO WE MAP TO THAT OR ON A CONTROLLER. WE GOT TO COME UP WITH CLEAN WAYS TO DO THAT THAT FEELS INTUITIVE IT THAT DOESN’T MAKE THE NONSOMETHING IN YOUR HAND YOU CAN INTERACTIVE FEEL WORSE THAN WHAT WE USED TO HAVE. >> WE WILL GET SHIELDS ON BEDROCK. >> I’M SURE WE’LL FIGURE IT OUT. >> GOOD. SO, IF WE ARE GOING WITH THE NEXT QUESTION, THEN, THERE WILL BE AN IN-GAMES . >> YOU SAW THE VIDEOS. I’M SURE YOU WATCH THE YOUTUBE VIDEOS AND MAYBE PLAYED YOUR OWN GAMES FOR YEARS AND YEARS AND IT SORT OF TELLS THE SORRY THAT YOU WANT IT — THE STORY THAT YOU WANT IT TO TELL.

USING MODS AND RESOURCE PACKS AND SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS TO CREATE DIFFERENT STORIES IN THE GAME. WE LIKE THAT THE PLAYER IS THE ONE THAT CAN TELL THEIR OWN STORY. AND MAYBE YOU HAVE MORE TO ADD THERE. >> YEAH. WHENEVER WE DEVELOP FEATURES, WE DO KIND OF HAVE A STORY IN OUR HEADS. WHY WOULD THIS POSSIBLY BE PLACED HERE. AND WE DO TRAY TO COME UP WITH LIKE OUR OWN STORIES. I’M PRETTY SURE EVERY DEVELOPER HAS THEIR OWN IDEAS EVEN IT BUT WE TRY TO BE KIND OF CONSISTENT. THE REASON WE DON’T TELL ANYONE IS BECAUSE THEY CHANGE CONSTANTLY. WE WILL ADD SOMETHING NEW AND LIKE THIS WOULD MAKE A LOT OF SENSE IF THIS AND THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED. WE DO HAVE SOME KIND OF LIKE LAW IN OUR ORDER. BUT IT IS FIREFIGHTER E.

DEFINIS NOT THE STORY OF THE GAME. IT REALLY IS JUST THE STORY THAT YOU WANT TO PLAY? >> I HAVE BEEN PLOTTING THE SECRET STORY OF THE BROWN MUSHROOM FOR SEVEN YEARS NOW. >> THANKS FOR SHARING. THE NEXT QUESTION. WHY WE DON’T RELEASE UPDATES EVERY WEEK OR EVERY TWO WEEKS. ANITA, WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE BEDROCK SAID OF THIS? >> FOR BEDROCK, BECAUSE WE HAVE SO MANY PLATFORMS TO SUPPORT, EACH HAVE DIFFERENT FOR THEIR CERTIFICATION AND HOW LONG CERTAIN ONES TAKE. SOME ARE LASTER THAN OTHERS AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE RELEASE THOSE ALL THE SAME DAY. WE DON’T HAVE A BUTTON THAT SAYS GO AND THEN IT GOES OUT TO ALL OF THE PLAYERS. THAT TAKES SOME TIME TO DO. AND EVERY WEEK OR TWO W WEEKS AS LITTLE TOO FAST FOR US. WE ARE GETTING THERE IN TERMS OF HOW TO ONTY MAZE AND HOW FAST WE CAN GET OUT UPDATES. >> JASON? >> ONE OF THE OTHER CHALLENGES IS THERE IS A LOT OF OVERHEAD IN GETTING A RELEASE OUT. THE BUILDS, RUNNING THROUGH LIKE GIVING THE TESTERS ENOUGH TIME TO BASH ON THE BUILD TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DIDN’T INTRODUCE ANYTHING THAT BREAKS THE GAME AND STUFF LAKE THAT AND THAT TAKES A LOT OF TAME.

WE WANT TO MAKE SURE BECAUSE OF THINGS LIKE GOING THROUGH THE STORAGE WE HAD ENOUGH TURN AROUND TIME AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WHAT WE PUT IN THERE IS BEST QUALITY AS WE CAN. IF WE WERE DOING RELEASES EVERY WEEK OR EVERY TWO WEEKS WE WOULD SPEND OWL OF ALL OF OUR TAM TIG THAT. >> WE KIND OF HAVE — THE MORE FREQUENTLY YOU POST THE UPDATES THE LESS CAN BE IN BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH OVERHEAD FOR THE UPDATE. WE DO RELEASE US A WALLY REUSUAA WEEK ON THE JAVA EDITION. IF YOU ACCEPT THE RISK OF A REALLY UNSTABLE AND BUGGY GAME, WE MAY NOT HAVE YET GOTTEN TO THE POINT FIX THE IRK ISSUES. YOU CAN FACE STUFF QUITE SOON. >> SNAP SHOTS TO THE POINT ABOUT THEY NEED MORE TESTING DONE. >> BUT THEY HAVE BEEN A FANTASTIC TOOL FOR US. WE DESIGN THINGS AS WE GO WHEN THE SNAPSHOTS START. WE WILL ADD A FEATURE AND THEN WE PUT IT OUT THERE AND PEOPLE GET TO PLAY IT.

AND THEN HE WITHIN LIKE HOURS WEVILLE ALL OF THIS GREAT FEEDBACK FROM PEOPLE LIKE IT SHOULD DO THIS AS WELL ORTH ISA BIT TOO DIFFICULT. AND THEN FIX IT FOR THE VERY TEXT DAY AND PUSH OUT AN UPDATE. IT IS REALLY USEFUL TO PUSH IT OUT THIS FAMILIAR. IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT. >> AND THE QUESTION EARLIER ABOUT FIXING BUGS THAT REALLY HELPS US FIND BUGS IN THE GAME AND FIX THEM. SNAP SHOTS ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK AND PEOPLE REPORT THE BUGS QUICKLY.

WE CAN FIX THEM BEFORE THEY GET DEEP. >> AND THE STORY ASPECT, TOO. LAKE WE COULD TRICKLE OUT — LALIKE WE COULD TRICKLE OUT THIS HERE AND THERE. SOMETIMES YOU WANT THINGS TO GO TOGETHER. MEANT TO HAVE X, Y AND Z FEATURES TOGETHER TO BE MORE RUN FOR THE PLAYER? >> SOMEFEATURES WOULDN’T MAKE SE WITHOUT THE OTHER. >> WE GOT INFORMATION FROM THE BEDROCK TEAM FOR THE JAVA SNAP SHOTS. WE ARE LOOKING AT ALL OF THE FEEDBACK AS WELL. SOME OF THE FEATURES IMPLEMENTED FIRST WENT OUT IN A JAVA SNAP SHOT. AS YOU SEE THINKS ABOUT THE DROWN. I WAS LIKE THAT IS A GOOD POINT.

I SHOULD PROBABLY CHANGE CHING THAT IN OUR VERSION. >> SUPER AWESOME ORGEAT THE FEEDBACK. >> WE APPRECIATE ANY FEEDBACK WE GET. KEEP ON THAT. MOVE ON TO THE IN! QUESTION. SO THE NEXT QUESTION IS ARE THERE PLANS TO MAKE MINECRAFT MORE THAN JUST A VIDEO GAME. NATHAN, DO YOU WANT TO SPEAK ABOUT THAT ONE? >> I WOULD SAY IT ALREADY IS. IT IS STILL JUST A VIDEO GAME. BUT WE JUST ANNOUNCED DUNGEONS EARLIER WHICH IS AMAZING. I’M SO EXCITED FOR THAT. >> AND STORY MODE AND THEN THERE IS A MOVIE COMING OUT.

AND WE GOT SO MANY BOOKS. I THINK AT THIS POINT MINECRAFT IS JUST KIND OF — IT’S CHEESY LIFESTYLE BUT THAT IS WHAT IT IS. IT IS JUST A THING. AND PEOPLE EXPERIENCE IN IN WHATEVER WAYS THEY WANT TO EXPERIENCE IT. I WOULD SAY WE PAST THE VIDEO GAME POINT A LONG TIME AGO. >> I CAN AGREE WITH THAT. >> YEP. >> JASON, ANYTHING TO ADD TO THAT? >> I 100% AGREE WITH THAT. I COULDN’T HAVE I SAID IT BETTE. >> THE NEXT QUESTION THEN. WHEN WILL BEDROCK GET MPT RELATED COMMANDS AND FOR PEOPLE WHO DON’T KNOW, CAN YOU EXPLAIN IT? >> MBT IS THE NAME OF THE INTERNAL DATA STRUCTURE THE GAME US AS. BASICALLY THE SAVE FILE FORMAT. ON JAVA EDITION WE ADDED COMMANDS TO EDIT THE MBT. YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD TO EXACTLILY HUGH YOU WANT. YOU CAN MAKE ENTITIES RIDING ANY OTHER ENTITIES. DRAGONS RIDING PIGS. SO MANY CRAZY THINGS YOU CAN DO WITH MBT.

IT IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT IT SUPPORT THIS. THE SOURCE OF THE COUNTLESS BUGS IN THE GAME. AND EVERY TIME WE RELEASE A NEW UPDATE WE KIND OF HAVE TO CONSIDER WE CAN’T REALLY CHANGE THE INTERNAL STUFF THAT WE NEVER EXPECTED PEOPLE TO BE TOUCHING BECAUSE WE’LL BREAK SO MUCH STUFF. >> WHEN WE WERE BRINGING COMMANDS INTO THE GAME BECAUSE OF THE ISSUES THE JAVA TEAM EXPERIENCED AND CHALLENGES THEY HIT WITH THAT, WE CHOSE NOT TO PUT MBT COMMANDS IN. ULTIMATELY IT IS EXPOSING INTERNALS AND IT KIND OF LOCKS YOU TO THE INTERNALS. IF WE EVER CHANGE IT WE NOW HAVE TO SUPPORT THE PREVIOUS VERSION AND NEW VERSION AND ET CETERA AND WITH THE GAME BE AROUND FOR SO MANY YEARS IT BECOMES A HUGE BOTTLE NECK TO PROTESTING AND ALL OF THE STUFF AND MAYBES THE RELEASES TAKE LONGER TO GO OUT AND TA TAKES REPROING ISSUES HARDER.

IT SENT WORKING FOR THE ONE PLAYER. WORKS FOR US FINE. BECAUSE THEY WERE RUNNING IT ON LIKE SEVEN VERSIONS AGO OF THE STUFF. THE STANCE ON THE BEDROCK EDITION IS THAT WE WANT TO ENABLE THE SAME TYPES OF THINGS BUT NOT BY EXPOSING EXTERNALS. SOME IS ADD-ONS TIED INTO THE COMMANDS A LITTLE MORE TIGHTER AND STILL TALKING THROUGH WAYS TO TO THAT. THE GOAL IS TO ALLOW THE SAME TYPES OF THINGS, JUST IN A MORE PORTABLE WAY. >> AND I THINK THAT IS A VERY GOOD IDEA AS WELL. THESE KIND OF THINGS SHOULD HAVE A MORE FORMAL WAY OF DOING EXACTLY THE SAME FUNCTIONALITY THAT WE CAN GO OUT OF OUR WAY TO SUPPORT RATHER THAN HOPING IT WORKS. >> WE WILL GET A SIMILAR SEW ATLANTA HAWKBUTWITHOUT EXPOSING.

>> CORRECT. >> WITH THAT WE CAN MOVE ON TO THE NEXT QUESTION. ON THE FUN SIDE. WHY DO CREEPERS EXPLODE WHEN THEY COME NEAR YOU. I FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE ANSWERED THIS BEFORE, NATHAN? >> I HAVE. ISN’T IT OBVIOUS SO THEY JUST REALLY WANT A HUG AND PEOPLE ARE SCARED OF CREEPERS AND GET ANXIOUS. THEY COME UP TO YOU AND LIKE CAN I HAVE A HUG AND THEN, YOU KNOW, IT IS TOO MUCH FOR THEM. IT REALLY IS. AND SEE SPECIALLY BECAUSE SOME PLAYERS — ESPECIALLY BECAUSE SOME PLAYERS TRY TO ATTACK THEM FIRST. CAN YOU IMAGINE? THEY ARE SO CUDDLY. >> I JUST WANT A HUG. >> THEY DON’T HAVE ARMS. >> THEY HAVE NEVER HAD A HUG BEFORE. IT LOOKS SO NICE. >> I CAN AGREE WITH THAT. >> SAD. >> LET’S GO WITH THE NEXT QUESTION THEN. WHAT WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT FEATURE TO ADD TO MINECRAFT? CORY, MAYBE YOU WANT TO START ON THIS ONE. >> I HAVEN’T BEEN ON THE TEAM FOR TOO LONG. BT IN THE NEXT UPDATE, THE VILLAGE AND PILL AAGE IN THE UPDATE THE PILLAGERS AND BEASTS ROAMING AS A SQUAD TOGETHER AS A VILLAGE.

THE MOST DIFFICULT IS GETTING THEM TO BE A COHESIVE VO VILLAGE AND GOING TOGETHER AND PILLAGE. >> BUT IT LOOKS LIKE FUN. >> IT WILL BE FUN. IT WILL BE CHALLENGING. IT WILL BE FUN. >> WHAT ABOUT YOU, JASON? >> FOR ME, THE MOST CHALLENGING HAS BEEN DOING THE ADD ON STUFF. MOSTLY TO ACHIEVE THE ADD ONS WE HAD TO TAKE THE GAME PLAY CODE AND RESTRUCTURE AND WRITE THINGS FROM CATCH. WE DIDN’T WANT TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIORS. PEOPLE EXPECT CREEPERS AND SKELETONS TO WORK A VERY SPECIFIC WAY. WE HAD TO EVEN THOUGH WE WERE CHANGING EVERYTHING WE WANTED IT TO FEEL THE SAME AND THEN EXPOSE ALL OF THAT THERE. AND NOW WE KIND OF HAD — I WON’T QUITE SAY A MAINTENANCE NIGHTMARE BUT GETTING TO THE REALM OF WHAT WE TALKED ABOUT WITH MBT EARLIER. NOW HEA MAKE SURE WE ARE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN TO NOT BREAK PEOPLE WHO BUILT ADD ONS. HOW COULD THIS CHANGE SOMETHING IF SOMEONE WAS RELYING UPON A SPECIFIC BEHAVIOR HOW COULD THAT AFFECT THEM AND TRY TO WRITE UP CONVERSION CODE.

HAVE TO ALWAYS BE THINKING ABOUT THAT STUFF. >> LAKE THE BACKWARDS COMPATABILITY IS KEY FACTOR HERE. TAY THAN, WHAT ABOUT YOU? >> SO MANY THINGS OVER SO MANY YEARS. IT IS HARD TO PINPOINT LIKE THE DEFINE THING. I REMEMBER THAT SO MANY BUGS THAT I SPENT LITERALLY MONTHS ON AND JUST GAVE UP AT SOME POINT. I THINK I WILL GO, I’M A NERD, I HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT PORTALS. FOR ME, THE THING THAT I HAVE BEEN — FOR SO LONG AND I STILL HAVEN’T IS THE PORTAL MECHANICS. YOU CAN HAVE A SMALL PORTAL AND REALLY BIG PORTAL ON THE OTHER SIDE AND IF YOU GO IN SLIGHTLY TO THE LEFT YOU SHOULD COME OUT SLIGHTLY TO THE LEFT ON THE OTHER ONE.

SO MANY WEIRD LIKE — IT IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT REALM THAN I EVER EXPECTED TO GO THAT. >> THIS IS WHY YOU GAVE UP ON THE STARGATE IDEA? >> BASICALLY IS. ONE DAY I WILL HAVE THEM WORKING THE WAY I WANT. >> YOU CAN DO IT, NATHAN. WE BELIEVE IN YOU. >> IF YOU GO IN ONE SIDE WHICH SIDE TO TOTALLY YOU COME OUT OF BECAUSE THERE IS NO FRONT AND BACK. >> PORTALS ARE A PAIN? >> I CAN SEE THAT. ANITA, I KNOW YOU DON’T DEVELOP BUT PROBABLY HAVE THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN A STRUGGLE FROM WE HAVEN’T TALKED TO MUCH ABOUT THIS ONE. HAVING A SHARED IDENTITY ACROSS THE PLATFORMS WE SUPPORT. HOW DO WE SHOW THAT TO THE PLAYERS. PLAYERS YOU ARE PLAYING WITH ON DIFFERENT PLATFORMS AND MAKING SURE THAT IS CONSISTENT AND UNDERSTAND WHAT IDENTITY YOU HAVE AND BE WHO YOU WANTON BE.

>> SO TRYING TO GET LIKE THE SAME EXPERIENCE WHEREVER YOU ARE REALLY. >> UM-H’M. >> OKAY. WITH THAT WE CAN MOVE IN TO THE NEXT QUESTION. I THINK IT IS SIMILAR TO THE ONE WE JUST MINCED. WHERE DOES THE CREEPERS FEAR OF CATS COME FROM? JASON? MAYBE YOU HAVE AN IDEA ABOUT THIS? >> I THINK WE ALL HAVE OUR OWN THEORIES. I THINK THAT THEY ARE ALLERGIC TO CATS AND TRYING NOT TO SNEEZE. >> OKAY. I COULD SEE THAT. NATHAN, YOU? >> IT AS VERY GOOD QUESTION. WE ACTUALLY HAVE WONDERED THIS OURSELVES ON THE DEVELOPER TEAM.

JUST KIND OF HAPPENED. NOBODY REALLY NEW HOW. WE SENT LAKE A GREAT TEAM OF INVESTIGATORS TO TRY AND FIGURE IT OUT. AND THEY DECIDED WHERE CAN WE GET THE ANSWER TO THIS? THEY BUILT IN BEAUTIFUL HOUSE AND INVITED A CREEPER INSIDE AND LOCKED THE DOOR AND WENT IN AND WENT CREEPER WHY ARE YOU SO AFRAID OF CATS? UNFORTUNATELY, HE WAS PUT ON THE SPOT AND IT WAS TOO MUCH PRESSURE AND EXPLOITED. HE EX-EXPLODED.THE RESULTS ARE D WARE’ STILL WORKING ON IT? >> I CAN SEE THAT HAPPENING. >> THE NEXT QUESTION. CAN WE GET MORE VARIETY OF GEMS, TREES AND ORES? SOMETHING THAT IS HAPPENING? CORY? >> WE ALL LOVE NEW FE GEMS AND TREES AND ORES AND EVERYBODY WANTS MORE. NEW THINGS HAVE TO SERVE A PURPOSE. WHEN WE ADD A NEW GEM OR TREE OR ORE WE WANT IT TO INTERACT WITH THE EXISTING GAME BUT ALSO ADD SOMETHING NEW TO THE GAME. WE WANT EVERY SINGLE THING TO BE UNIQUE IN SOME WAYS SO THAT IS ADDS A VALUE WITH THAT.

YES, WE WILL ADD MORE BUT WE DON’T WANT TO THROW A BUNCH IN AT ONCE BECAUSE THAT WOULDN’T BE FUN. >> I THINK IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WHENEVER WE ADD SOMETHING IT LASS SO MANY DIFFERENT PURPOSES. IF WE JUST RELEASE ONE UPDATE, TEN G NEW HYPER THINGS BUT IT DOESN’T DO ANYTHING WE WILL ALL BE SAD. >> IT SHOULD FEEL LIKE IT IS BRINGING SOMETHING VERY USEFUL TO THE GAME.

>> JUST DON’T ADD SOMETHING RANDOMLY THAT DOESN’T HAVE ANY PURPOSE. WE ADD AN ORE IT SHOULD DO SOMETHING. >> WE BREAK THAT RULE ALL THE TIME. I WILL NOT SAY THAT IS THE GOLDEN RULE BUT WE TRY TO STICK TO THAT. AND ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CONSIDER LIKE ESPECIALLY WITH ORES YOU HAVE THE CURRENT LIKE YOU HAVE THE TE TIERS LIKE STONE IS NOT A REALLY AN ORE BUT ALL THE WAY UP TO DIAMOND. IF WE ADDED A BUNCH OF OTHER TIERS THEY ARE USEFUL FOR WEAPONS AND ARMOR AND TOOLS. YOU WILL JUST GO TO WHATEVER THE BEST. THEY NEED TO REALLY HAVE THEIR OWN LIKE SHINING PURPOSE TO HAVE SOME REASON TO USE THOSE OVER WHATEVER THE BEST IS. >> DO YOU ANY IDEA OF ORES YOU WANT TO ADD YOURSELF? >> NOT REALLY. I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING. I REMEMBER I ONCE SHOT DOWN AN ORE. RUBY WAS AN ORE BUT I WAS COLOR BLIND AND IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THAT AND THE REDSTONES. SO NOW WE HAVE GOOD EMERALDS. >> I THINK THAT CLEARS UP HOW WE THINK ABOUT ORES IN GENERAL.

WILL YOU EVER ADD MORE REDSTONE COMPONENTS. ANITA, WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT THAT? >> DEFINITELY. AGREE? >> ALL AGREE? >> YES. >> ANY IDEA ON WHAT THEY COULD BE? ANY RECENT IDEAS? >> WE HAVE A LOT OF C CRAZY IDS THAT POP UP. TWO PARTS. SOMETHING THAT IS BUILT FOR REDSTONE LIKE A NEW CIRCUIT OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT AND THEN THE OTHER HALF IS SOMETHING THAT CAN INTERACT WITH REDSTONE IN SOME KIND OF WAY. I’M NOT PROMISING THIS BUT I KNOW ONE THING WE TALKED ABOUT ABOUT WAS THE IDEA OF A TARGET LOCK WHERE IF YOU JUST SHOOT AN ORE INTO IT, IT WILL GIVE OFF A SIGNAL BASED ON HOW MUCH IT WAS.

SOUNDEDLIKE SO MUCH FUN. >> IT’S ON YOUR BACKLOG NOW. >> OH NO,. >> SOUNDS LIKE A COOL IDEA. WHAT WOULD I USE IT FOR IN GAME? THINK OF ANYTHING TOP OF YOUR HEAD? >> LALIKE HAVE JUST LIKE A PRACTICE RANGE WHERE CAN LIKE YOU HAVE TO BE THIS GOOD TO GET INTO A BUILDING OR USE IT IN CUSTOM MAPS. I DON’T KNOW. DEFINITELY NOT SOMETHING WE ARE GOING TO ADD RIGHT NOW. JUST LIKE A CRAZY IDEA THAT WE HAVE. I WE HAVE A LOT OF SIMILAR IDEAS. >> TIED THE POWER SIGNAL TO LIKE IF IT LOOKED TO AN ACTUAL TARGET AND TIED TO HOW CLOSE TO THE CENTER LIKE YOU NEED TO HIT IT RIGHT IN THE CENTER TO OPEN THE DOOR BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE THE HIGHEST POWER OUTPUT.

>> I CAN SEE THAT. ON THE ADVENTURE MAPS REALLY. JASON, YOU HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME ON THE TEAM. REDSTONE COMPONETS. >> MODIFY — REDSTONE IS A BIT OF A MYSTERY TO ME WHEN I TRY TO BUILD CIRCUITS. I’M NOT GOOD AT IT. I WANT LIKE STICKY REDSTONE OR PUT DUST UNDER WATER. BUT THOSE ARE ALL JUST CRAZY IDEAS? >> SEEMS LIKE . >> WE DO TRY TO THINK LIKE WHEN WE ADD A NEW BLOCK AND SEEMS LIKE IT COULD HAVE A POSSIBLE CONNECTION TO REDSTONE MAYBE YOU CAN TURN IT ON AND OFF. WE DO THINK OF NEW THINGS TO ADD. I DON’T THINK WE WANTED JUST LIKE SPECIFICALLY THIS IS USEFUL FOR REDSTONE. MAYBE WE JUST HAVEN’T GOTTEN TO THE NEXT REDSTONE UPDATE. I’M NOT SURE. IN MY MIND, THE REDSTONE . >> HAD REDSTONE IN TWO YEARS FOR BEDROCK. IT DOES FEEL KIND OF KIND OF RECENT. >> MOVE ON TO THE NEXT QUESTION. WHO MADE THE OCEAN MONUMENTS AND STRONG HOLDS? ANITA, CAN YOU SPEAK TO THAT? >> FOR THE ONES YOU MENTIONED I BELIEVE JENS PUT THOSE IN.

I DON’T THINK THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY ASKING. IN TERMS OF LORE, NATHAN, YOU MIGHT HAVE MORE TO ADD THERE. >> I WILL ANSWER THIS QUESTION WITH A QUESTION. IF THESE WHOEVER BUILT THESE HAD LIKE MINE SHAFTS RUNNING THROUGH THE ENTIRE WORLD, THEY ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE BUT THEY LEFT ALL OF THE DIAMONDS, ALL OF THE GOOD STUFF ALONE WHAT WERE THEY DIGGING FOR? >> TO LEAVE THE THINGS FOR ME. >> WELL. THAT IS SOLVED. THERE WE GO. >> ADRIAN. >> CORY, ANY IDEA ABOUT THIS? >> KIND OF TIES BACK TO THE WHOLE TELLING YOUR STORY THING. WE HAVE OUR OWN IDEAS ABOUT WHO BUILT THEM. IF WE PUT THAT IN THE GAME AND SAID THIS IS THE REASON THESE ARE HERE THEN YOU WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO COME UP WITH THAT ON YOUR OWN. WE LIKE THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF MISS MYSTERY. ADDS A LITTLE FUN.

>> MAYBE YOU HAVE GREAT IDEAS AND THEN WE’LL STEAL THOSE LATER. >> LET’S TRY MORE. ANY FEATURES THAT YOU GOT RID OF OR SCRAPPED? JASON? >> YEAH, SO WE HAD — A MOB THAT ENDED UP IN THE MINECON MOB BUILD THE BARNACLE. IT HAD THE SHELL AND OPEN UP AND THE TENTACLE WOULD GRAB YOU AND PULL YOU UNDER WATER UNTIL YOU SUFFOCATED WHICH I LOVED BUT MAYBE A LITTLE TOO DARK. SO WE WERE BRAINSTORMING IT AND KIND OF GOING WELL, THIS ONE IS INTERESTING BUT WE WEREN’T TOTALLY SURE. WE CHOSE TO PUT IT IN THE MINECON VOTE AND SEE MOW THE COMMUNITY REACTED. FOR THE OTHER FEATURES WE MOSTLY BRAINSTORMED A WHOLE BUNCH OF STUFF AND PUT THE THINGS ON THE WALL AND HAD EVERYONE IN THE BRAINSTORM SESSION GO THESE ARE THE THINGS WE THINK WILL RESONATE WELL AND ARE MOST LIKELY TO BE SUCCESSFUL IF WE WORK ON THEM AND KIND OF WORKED ON THOSE IN ORDER AND WE WERE FORTUNATE EVERYTHING WE START THE WE FINISHED AND DID END UP SHIPPING.

USUALLY DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY. FOR AQUATIC IT DID. >> THERE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE ONE SQUAREY MOB AND DID NOT GO AND IT IS YOUR FAULT. >> WE DO HAVE THE DROWN. >> I THINK IT IS GOOD WHEN THINGS GET CUT. JURISUNFORTUNATE TO SPEND A MOA FEATURE. >> TORNADOES. >> WE DON’T WANT TO ADD ANYTHING THAT ISN’T FUN AND THAT DOESN’T FEEL MINECRAFTY AND WE TRY TO CUT THEM AT THE BEGIN. THERE WAS A GIGANTIC LIST FOR THE UPDATE AQUATIC. LIKE WHAT IF WE HAD THIS AND THIS. AND THEN WE GOT RID OF A LOT OF THINGS BEFORE WE EVEN TRIED PROTOTYPING THEM. I DO THINK THAT LIKE IT IS A VERY GOOD THING AS A STUDIO TO BE ABLE TO SAY WE DID PUT EFFORT AND IN AND FIND OUT IT DIDN’T QUITE WORK. MAYBE WE CAN USE THE LESSONS WE LEARNED TO MAKE SOMETHING EVEN BETTER LATER. >> IF YOU START THE PROTOTYPING A FEATURE AND BEEN AT IT FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS AND THEN NED TO SCRAP IT BECAUSE IT DOESN’T WORK OUT, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT IT? >> I’M OKAY WITH IT.

ULTRAMALTLY WE WANT TO HAVE A FUN GAME EXPERIENCE AND IFING IS IS DETRACTING IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE TO PUT IT IN JUST TO MAKE SOMEBODY HAPPY THAT THEIR WORK SHOWED UP IN THE GAME. ALL OF US JUST WANT THE BEST GAME EXPERIENCE WE CAN POSSIBLY MAKE. >> IF YOU DO MAKE A FEATURE AND IT ACTUALLY GOES OUT TO THE PUBLIC. SAY WE ANNOUNCED IT OR EVEN MADE IT INTO A SNAPSHOT T OR A WHOLE RELEASE IT IS HARD TO TAKE THAT BACK. IT IS IMPORTANT TO CUT IT FIRST AND LIKE — IT IS VERY HARD TO TAKE FEATURES AWHICH FROM PEOPLE ONCE THEY HAVE THEM. > OH, YEAH. >> AND CAN BE QUITE DEPRESSING. ALL OF THESE FEATURES WE ARE STILL A FAIRLY SMALL DEVELOPMENT STUDIO AND WE PUT A LOT OF LOVE AND CARE INTO MAKING THESE THINGS AND WHEN THEY DON’T MAKE IT THAT CAN BE SAD. BUT THEN YOU ARE MAKING THE GAME BETTER. >> IT IS ULTIMATELY GOOD. >> SORT OF EXPERIMENTING LIKE THE FAIL FAST IDEA. LET’S TRY THIS OUT AND MAKE SURE WE NAIL THE FUN PART. AND IF IT IS NOT THERE, LET’S GO AND TACKLE THE ONES THAT THE OTHER IDEAS THAT WE HAD.

>> YEAH. >> FORTUNATEL, WE HAVE GOT TON A POINT WHERE WE HAVE GOTTEN REASONABLY AS WE ARE AT THE BRAINSTORMING PHASE KIND ARE GOING THAT IS PROBABLY NOT GOING TO WORK OR THIS WILL WORK BUT IT’S — IT WILL HAVE THESE PROBLEMS THAT WE WILL HAVE TO FIGURE OUT AND MAYBE IT IS NOT WORTH TRYING TO SOLVE THOSE PROBLEMS RIGHT NOW. SOME WE PUT ON THE BACK BURNER AND MAYBE IN A FUTURE UPDATE WE WILL REVISIT THAT TOPIC AGAIN. >> CORY, YOU ARE NEW. ANY EXPERIENCE TWO-DAY THAT YET? >> A LOT OF FEATURES — ANY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS YET? >> I CAME IN ON DAY ONE AND I WILL ADD THIS, THIS, THIS AND THIS. AND STARTED WORKING ON THEM AT WORK AND IN MY FREE TIME AND THEN REALIZED THAT YOU CAN’T JUST GET EVERYTHING IN THE GAME. YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE IT FITS IN WITH EVERYTHING ELSE. SORT OF PART OF THE GAME YOU CAN WORK ON SOMETHING AND IT CAN GET TAKEN AWAY. AT THE SAME SOMETIMES IT END UP FITTING REALLY WELL AND THAT IS NICE.

>> WHERE PHYSICALLY IS THE END? IN SPACE? UNDER GROUND? OR IN ANOTHER DIMENSION? NATHAN? >> PART OF ME WANTS TO GO INTO A BIESTY BOYS ANOTHER DIMENSION CHANT. A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT DIMENSION. I KNOW PEOPLE THINK LIKE THE NETHER IS DEEP UNDERGROUND. NO THAT IS LAKE WEIRD EIGHT TIMES PORTAL ASPECT GOING ON THERE. IT IS JUST LIKE ANOTHER PLANE OF REALITY THAT IT HAPPENS EXACTLY OVER THE OVERWORLD AND THE NETHER. AND THAT IS WHY THERE COULD BE OTHER POSSIBLE DIMENSIONS ONE DAY. BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT FALLLY ANYWHERE. THEY ARE JUST LIKE LAYERED OVER THE TOP OF EACH OTHER. >> SOUNDS COOL. WE COULD POSSIBLY GET OTHER DIMENSIONS? >> ONE DAY. >> SOUNDS GREAT. OKAY. GO ON WITH THE NEXT QUESTION THEN. THE NEXT QUESTION IS WILL THERE BE NEW CHARACTERS OTHER THAN STEVE AND ALEX? ANITA? >> SUSTASTEVE AND ALEX, THEY ART SOME OF THE CHARACTERS IN THE MINECRAFT UNIVERSE.

AND IT IS FOR YOU GUYS TO IMAGINE YOURSELF IN THE WORLD. SO YOU ARE ALSO CHARACTERS IN MINECRAFT. IN FACT, I THINK WE WERE TALKING EARLIER TODAY ABOUT HOW WE WANT TO REPRESENT OURSELVES. I CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT YOURS WAS, CORY? >> I’M THE COOKIE MONSTER. >> I LIKE SILLY ONES LIKE THE HOT DOG OR THE LITTLE SOMBRERO. >> GREEK MYTHOLOGY FOR ME. >> JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS. >> JUST ME UPSIDE DOWN. WEIRD BEING RIGHT SIGHT UP FOR THIS. VERY DISORIENTING. >> WE’LL GO GO TO AUSTRALIA NEXT TIME. >> OKAY. ANYONE ELSE WANT TO ADD SOMETHING TO THAT? CORY, WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT NOT HAVING OTHER CHARACTERS THAN STEVE AND ALEX? >> GOES BACK TO THE STORY THING. YOU CAN HAVE YOUR OWN CHARACTERS AND TELL YOUR OWN STORIES AND SORT OF NICE THAT STEVE AND ALEX ARE TWO PORTRAYIALS OF WHAT YOU CAN BE IN THE WORLD. THERE ARE OTHER THAN YOUTUBEERS WHO LIKE TO KEEP THE PLAIN SKIN AND THAT IS AWESOME AND OTHER PEOPLE COME UP WITH THEIR OWN SKINS AND PEOPLE WHO MAKE A CAREER OUT OF MAKING CHARACTERS FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN TURN THAT INTO THEIR OWN STORIES.

THEY ARE A STARTING POINT BUT NOT REALLY THE ENDING POINT,. >> I AGREE WITH THE WHOLE IT IS YOUR STORY, IT IS NOT OUR STORY. WE DO PRESENT POSSIBLE STORIES WITH STORY MODE AND THE BOOKS. ULTIMATELY YOU PLAY WHAT YOU WANT TO PLAY. >> GREAT ANSWER. THANKS. MOVE ON TO THE NEXT QUESTION THEN. SO, WHY CAN’T THE VILLAGERS ACTUALLY HAVE MOVING ARMS AND WHY CAN’T THEY TALK INSTEAD OF HEYING HMM ALL THE TIME.

>> HMM. >> HMM. >> HMM. >> THANKS, I GUESS? >> HMM. >> WE CLEARED THIS UP NOW, I THINK. >> SO NEXT QUESTION. LA LAUGH. >> WITH THE OVERWORLD AND THE NETHER WILL HEAVEN OR PARADICE JOIN MINECRAFT IN THE FUTURE? >> MAYBE. THEY ARE NOT UNDERGROUND, THEY ARE NOT UP NOT SKY. FINDS BACK TO THE CURRENT DIMENSIONS, THE END GOT A LOT OF LOVE RECENTLY. WE ARE ADDING THINGS TO THE OVERWORLD. THE NETHER ALSO GOT SOME LOVE SOME TIME AGO BUT STILL NOT REALLY HAPPY WITH WHERE THEY ARE. I THINK BEFORE WE START ADDING EVEN MORE PLACES WHERE THERE IS NO REAL BIG REASON TO GO TO THEM, WE SHOULD STILL FOCUS ON THE CURRENT, THE THREE CURRENT DIMENSIONS AND MAKE SURE WE ARE HAPPY WITH THOSE BEFORE WE START ADDING MORE PLACES. >> AGREE, CORY? >> I AGREE COMPLETELY. I THINK WHAT YOU ARE MENTIONING ABOUT WANTING TO GIVE THE DIMENSIONS WE HAVE MORE LOVE IS GEAT AND IT IS FACE BECAUSE WITH THE DIMENSIONS WHEN WE UPDATE THOSE AND GIVE THEM MORE LOVE WE CAN THINK ABOUT WHAT WOULD BE KINASE COUNTER PART.

IN THE OVERWORLD REPORT NETHER OR THE END, WHAT IS THE ADDITION TO THESE THINGS. IT MAKES SENSE IN TERMS OF WHAT CAN WE ADD TO THE GAME THAT ADD IS NOT JUST THE NEW DIMENSION BUT A NEW STYLE AND WAY OF THINKING IN THE GAME. >> AND THERE IS ALSO, NOT TO TALK ABOUT GAME PLY SIDE BUT THE TECHNICAL SIDE, ADDING NEW DIMENSIONS IS VERY EXPENSIVE. I’M SURE YOU CAN TALK MORE ABOUT THAT. >> YOU THINK THERE IS A LOT OF WORK INTO A BIOME UPDATE. A DIMENSION IS A WHOLE ANOTHER LEVEL OF THAT. BECAUSE IT SO MUCH WORK, WE DO GAME JAMS REGULARLY IN THE STUDIO AND I HAVE GONE OFF AND PROTOTYPES THINGS AND MOSTLY JUST TO GET THE CONVERSATION STARTED AND WANT TO JUST SORT OF LIKE IN THE BACK OF OUR HEADS THINKING ABOUT IT.

THERE IS NEVER ANY GOAL OF LIKE WE WILL GO PROTOTYPE A DIMENSION AND SHIP IT IN SIX MONTHS. THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH STUFF TO DO TO IMPROVE THE OVERWORLD AND NETHER AND I’M SURE THE END STILL HAS STUFF WE CAN ADD IN THERE. WE WANT TO AT LEAST GET THINKING ABOUT IT. THESE THINGS COULD TAKE YEARS TO REALLY FLESH OUT AND HAVE IT BE SOMETHING AS MEANINGFUL. >> AND I DON’T KNOW ABOUT THE BEDROCK ENGINE BUT ON THE JAVA ENGINE THEY ARE A PERFORMANCE DRAIN. HAVING AN EXTRA DIMENSION MEANS THE GAME RUNS SLOWER AND WE DON’T WANT THE GAME TO RUN SLOWER. WE WILL MAKE SURE THAT ISN’T A PROBLEM BEFORE WE ADD MORE THINGS. >> THE SAME CASE WITH BEDROCK EDITION? >> LESS OF A CASE. FOR US IT IS MOSTLY THE NUMBER OF PLAYERS AND WHERE THEY ARE. WHEN PLAYERS ARE IN THE SAME PLACE IT TE TENDS TO BE BETTER. AS THEY SEPARATE OUT AND THE MORE DA INVESTIGATIONS YOU HAVE THE EASIER FOR PLAYERS TO START SPREADING OUT.

NOT TOO DIFFERENT IF YOU JUST HAVE 10 PLAYERS ALL IN THE OVERWORLD BUT MAILS APART BUT HAVE THEM — IT IS ABOUT THE SAME. THERE IS A BIT OF COST BUT IT IS NOT AS TERRIBLE AS IT SOUNDS? >> AND THE NEW DIMENSION, YOU THINK ABOUT THE NETHER AND END THEY ADD TIERS TO THINGS IN THE OVERWORLD AND GIVE ITEMS AND BLOCKS A NEW LEVEL. IF YOU ADD A NEW DIMENSION, HOW WOULD THIS AFFECT THE OVERWORLD AS TIME? >> ALL BACK TO THE WHOLE MEANINGFUL THING.

WHATTEVER WE ADD TO THE GAME HAS TO BE MEANING. NOW A WHOLE DIMENSION TO ADD TO THE GAME AND HOW YOU FIT THAT ALL IN. >> ANITA, WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE A NEW DIMENSION? >> OF COURSE. >> ARE YOU LIKE ANDTY DIMENSION? >> I LOVE DIMENSIONS. THE SAME THING LIKE WHAT ARE WE GOING TO PUT IN AND THIS WHAT IS THE PLAYER GOING TO DO. MINECRAFT IS ALWAYS EXPANDING AND’ INVOLVING. NOT SHUTTING THE DOOR ON THAT ONE. >> SOUNDS GREAT. WE CAN MOVE ON TO THE NEXT QUESTION THEN. THE NEXT IS HOW DO WE THINK OF , WHAT IS THE HARDEST THING IN UPDATING MINECRAFT? >> WHEN WE WERE THINKING ABOUT WHAT W. NEXT FOR THE NEXT UPDATE, WE LOOK AT THE GAME AND SEE WHAT KINDS OF THINGS AND AREA NEED IMPROVEMENT.

MIGHT BE WHOLE AREA LIKE THE OCEAN. OR, YOU NOEL, THE VILLAGES AND THINGS LIKE THAT. THEN WE HAVE IDEAS OF JUST ALL OVER MINECRAFT, TOO, OF WHAT WE WANT TO IMPROVE. WE CAN SEE WHAT KIND OF GOES TOGETHER. LIKE TWO WAYS TO THINK ABOUT THAT. WANT TO EXPAND ON HOW THE TEAM IS ACTUALLY GOING — TEAMS GO AND MEET? >> YOU EXPERIMENT INNED ABOUT WE HAVE THE SEPARATE IDEAS SO ANOTHER PLACE WE GET A LOT OF IDEAS FROM IS THE COMMUNITIES. LIKE COME FROM REDDIT COMMENTS IS KIND OF HILARIOUS. BUT WE HAVE — ONCE WE KIND OF DECIDE ON A THEME WE GET EVERYONE IN A ROOM AND BRAINSTORM THE IDEAS AND THEN THE TEAMS AGREE WHICH STUFF — TALK ABOUT THIS WITH AQUATIC BUT KIND OF AGREED THESE ARE THE THINGS WE THINK WILL RESONATE WELL AND WORK ON THAT AND THEN SPLIT THE WORK BETWEEN THE TWO TEAMS.

AND START IMPLEMENTING PROTOTYPING EVERYTHING AND THEN GIVE BOTH TEAMS LOOK AT WHAT THE OTHER TEAMS ARE DOING AND GIVE FEEDBACK AND EVERYTHING I THINK OF ONE COOL SCAM EXAMPLE IS THE CORRAL OF THE IMPLEMENTED IN THE REDMOND STUDIO AND THE STOCKHOLM TEAM SAID WE HAD A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT VERSION OF WHAT CORRAL WOULD LOOK LIKE. AND OH, MY GOD, WE GOT TO CHANGE EVERYTHING. THIS IS TARABLE. AND WE WENT THROUGH THE WORK AND CORAL IS BETTER NOW. IT IS EASY WHEN WORKING ON STUFF JUST BE LIKE TUNNEL VISION IN AND THIS IS WHAT I WILL THINK IT WILL BE AND THEN SEE PEOPLE WITH A FRESH PERSPECTIVE LOOK AND IT CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE.

>> AND AS FAR AS THINKING OF WHICH UPDATE LAKE WHAT IS THE THEME OF THE UPDATES THAT IS USUALLY WHAT DO WE THINK NEEDS THE MOST LOVE IN THE GAME. RECENTLY WE HAD LIKE THE OCEANS AND OCEANS WERE JUST A GIANT HALF OF YOUR WORLD IS LITERALLY NOTHING. AND THAT FELT SO SAD. THAT WAS LIKE THESE REALLY NEEDED LOVE. WE TRIED TO KEEP THESE PLANNED LIKE A COUPLE OF UPDATES AHEAD. MAY NOT HAVE FLESHED THEM OUT BUT WE NEED TO L LOOK AT THIS. >> THEY HAD SQUIDS. >> PREUPDATE AQUATIC AND THEN GOING BACK, IT IS HARD NOT TO GO BACK. IT FEEL THES LIKE GRAVEL EVERYWHERE AND A COUPLE OF SQUARES. SO IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE? WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT HOW WE WORK WITH THE UPDATES? >> WHEN I JOINED IT WAS RIGHT BEFORE UPDATE AEQUAT WAS BEING RELEASED AND I JUMPED INTO THE PHASE OF FIX ALL OF THE BUGS AND MIXTURE THE FEE TIRES WORK RIGHT AND GET EVERYTHING DONE NOW.

THE HARDEST THING T FOR MY EXPERIENCE COORDINATE THE ORDER OF WHICH BUGS TO FIX FIRST AND WHICH ARE THE HIGHEST PRIORITIES AND HOW DO YOU DECIDE THIS IS GOOD ENOUGH AND READY FOR RELEASE? AND MATCHING THAT UP WITH THE GOAL OF WHEN WE WANT TO RELEASE. AND THAT SORT OF MASHES TOGETHER. >> I DO HAVE TO SAY SINCE UPDATE AQUATIC WAS THE FIRST UPDATE WE DEVELOPED WITH THE STYLE WHERE IT IS LIKE THE 50/50 SPLIT IT HAS GONE AMAZING. WE GOT SO MUCH CONTENT AND SOME GREAT THINGS. I WILL THINK EVERYTHING WE ADDED KIND OF HAS MORE POLISH THAN WE USUALLY WOULD. >> WE GET A LOT MORE PERSPECTIVE ACROSS THE TEAMS AND TYPES OF PLATFORMS OR THE PLAYERS AND THINGS LIKE THAT, TOO. YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT COORDINATING. ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS DIFFICULT IS THETIME CHANGE. WE ON THE BEDROCK SIDE ARE PRETTY MUCH WORKING WHEN THEY ARE ASLEEP. THERE IS MANY TIMES THROUGHOUT THIS LIKE BREAK DOWN ALL OF THE THINGS THAT LAKE OH, CAN YOU THINGS THAT LIKE, OH, CAN YOU HELP WITH IN? AND GO TO BED AND WAKE UP AND ALL THESE NEW IDEAS AND ANSWERS COME THROUGH AND IT IS LIKE CHRISTMAS MORNING.

LIKE WOW, ALL THIS WORK HAPPENED WHEN I WAS ASLEEP. THERE ARE CHALLENGES THAT WE HAVE TO WORK THROUGH? >> I CAN AGREE WITH THAT. RECENTLY WE HAD A MEETING THAT WAS IN THE MORNING FOR US IN STOCKHOLM WHICH IS MIDNIGHT IN REDMOND. THAT WAS CRAZY. WE TRY TO AVOID THOSE MEETINGS BUT SOMETIMES THEY HAPPEN. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE LATE NIHT MEETINGS? >> I WAS GOING TO TALK ABOUT WHEN I — I OPENED THE CALL AND I WAS LIKE OH, TOO BAD IT’S LATE, I’M NOT GOING TO SHOW YOU GUYS LIKE WHAT I’M DOING, I WAS IN MY PAJAMAS AND I HAD A TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY AND ALL OF A SUDDEN THE CAMERA WAS ON. IT WAS LIKE OH, HI, EVERYBODY. IT IS NICER TO SEE EACH OTHER. AND GOING FORWARD NO MATTER WHAT I LOOK LIKE I WILL JUST TURN ON THE CAMERA. WELL, YOU KNOW, WITHIN — NOT LIKE SAFE, SAFE. >> WOULD YOU SAY THERE ARE ANY PERKS OF HAVING THE TIME DIFFERENCE THEN? >> I THINK SO. LIKE WITH, YOU KNOW, US — IT IS ALMOST FEELS LIKE DOUBLE SPEED SOMETIMES WITH THE DIFFERENT TIME ZONES. AND, YEAH. YOU GUYS HAVE ANYTHING ELSE TO COMMENT ON THAT? >> DEVELOPING AROUND THE CLOCK.

>> DEFINITELY THE PERKS WHAT ANITA LIKE I GOT IT IN NOT QUITE SURE IF THIS IS WORKING RIGHT. A VIDEO AND THEN COME BACK IN IN THE MORNING AND JENS OR DINNER BONE OR AGNES OR WHOEVER IS WAIT AND WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS AND AWESOME AND GO OFF AND CODE IT UP. PRETTY AMAZING. >> I THINK WE CAN MOVE ON TO THE NEXT QUESTION WITH THAT. THE NEXT QUESTION IS IT POSSIBLE TO MOVE BEDROCK WORLDS OVER TO JAVA AND VICE VERSA. BEDROCK JAVA. >> SOMETHING WE WANT. WE FEEL THE PLAYER SHOULD BE ABLE TO PLAY THE SAME WORLD WHEREVER THEY WANT.

IT IS QUITE TECHNICALLY CHALLENGING. WE HAVE TWO DIFFERENT ENGINES AND HAVE GONE ABOUT THE SAME THING IN TWO DIFFERENT WAYS AND JUST HAVE TO FIND WAYS TO COORDINATE THOSE AND MAKE THOSE BETTER. AND BECAUSE OF HOW DIFFICULT THAT IS, IT JUST HASN’T BEEN A PRIORITY. BUT IT IS SOMETHING THAT WE WANT TO LOOK AT, AT SOME POINT. >> JASON? >> ONE OF THE HISTORICAL PROBLEMS FOR THAT WAS THAT THE VERSION HADN’T EITHER. SO IF WE — IT WOULDN’T BE SO BAD BRINGING BEDROCK INTO JAVA BUT JAVA THAT BEDROCK IS CHALLENGING. OKAY, SOMEONE . WE DON’T KNOW WHAT PURR PURR IS BECAUSE THE GAME DIDN’T HAVE .

ITEMS AND STUFF IN THE GAME WERE PROBABLY MISSING SOMETHING. BUT WE ARE PRETTY DARN CLOSE. NOW IT IS FOR US TO START TALKING ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY OF DOING THIS. >> IT WOULD BE GREAT TO SEE YOU PLAYERS BEING ABLE TO WALK ACROSS ANY PLATFORM THEY WANT. >> YEP. >> OKAY. NEXT QUESTION IS A BIT . INTERPRET HOW YOU WANT. WHAT DO HOSTILE MOBS DREAM OF REALLY? >> PINK SHEEP. >> PINK SHEEP? >> PINK SHEEP. >> I THINK CREEPERS DREAM ABOUT CATS. >> SURE. CORY? >> I THINK THAT SUMS IT UP. I CAN’T THINK OF ANYTHING THAT THEY WOULD DREAM OF EXCEPT FOR THOSE. >> I HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE SLEEP. >> THAT’S TRUE. THEY KIND OF JUST GO UNDERGROUND. THEY DON’T REALLY SLAP. SLEEP. >> HMM. >> OR CATCH ON FIRE. >> OR CATCH ON FIRE, THAT, TOO. >> ROUGH LIFE. >> YEAH. >> OKAY. NEXT QUESTION. WILL YOU EVER ADD TYPES OF WREAKING HAVOC TO THE GAME? TYPE MORE TYPES OF WEATHER TO THE GAME? >> SO MANY DIFFERENT THINGS BECAUSE WE RAIN AND SNOW AND THUNDERSTORMS RIGHT NOW BUT THERE OTHER KINDS OF PASSIVE WEATHER SORT OF THAT YOU CAN THINK OF BECAUSE EARLIER I MENTIONED WE DON’T REALLY WANT TO ADD CALAMITIES THAT AREN’T PLAYER CAUSED BECAUSE THAT WOULD BREAK THE RULES OF THE GAME AND DESTROY EVERYTHING.

YOU DON’T WANT THAT. BUT RAINBOWS OR OTHER AMBIENT SORT OF IDEAS. THINGS. AND I THINK THOSE WOULD BE CAL TO ADD TALLEY. >> THERE ARE RAM FOR WEATHER ROR EFFECTS THAT AREN’T DISASTERS. YOU COULD HAVE MAYBE HAIL AND IT JUST KIND OF HURTS YOU AND THAT IS IT. OR MAYBE EVEN JUST HAVE KIND OF HEAVY RAIN WITH JUST LIKE PARTICLES ON THE FLOOR OR LIGHT RAIN THAT DOESN’T REALLY AFFECT YOU AT ALL.

I THINK ESPECIALLY WITH THE MORE BIOMES WE ADD THE MORE COOL VARIATIONS OF DIFFERENT RAIN THAT WE OR WEATHER WE COULD ADD. >> AND I WOULD ALSO REALLY LIKE TO SEE LIKE AURE AURORAS IN THE. THAT WOULD BE SUPER COOL. >> OKAY. >> THINGS LIKE THOSE AMBIENT EFFECTS IS ALSO A BIG PART OF LIKE YOU SAID LIKE AURORAS. I KNOW AFTER SEEING THE VIDEO PEOPLE KEEP ASKING FOR SHOOTING STARS IN THE BIOMES. JUST ANYTHING, THE THING THAT COULD BE TIED TO WEATHER EFFECTS AND JUST A NICE THING THAT HAPPENS OR SOMETIMES A BAD THING THAT HAPPENS THAT ISN’T REALLY — DISASTERS. >> RIGHT. IT ISN’T A DISASTER. >> A NUISANCE. WHEN IT RAINS OUT AND I WANTED TO GO FARMING BUT NOW ALL OF THE ZOMBIES AND SKELETONS ARE AROUND AND FIND A WAY TO DEAL TWO-DAY W. IT. >> AND THUNDERSTORMS THAT HAPPEN BUT PEOPLE FORGET THAT THEY HAPPEN. WE COULD EXPAND MORE ON THOSE KIND OF THINGS.

KIND OF MORE INTENSE AND SOMETIMES LESS INTENSE EFFECTS. >> SAY YOU BUILT A HOUSE IN THE MOUNTAINS AND GOING ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS AND THERE IS KNOW ALL AROUND YOU AND YOU WANT TO ENHANCE THE FEELING I’M IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW AND THIS IS WHAT I’M FEELING RIGHT NOW. I’M PLAYING SEVEN YEARS LATER AND IT STARTS SNOWING AND OH, IT IS REALLY NICE. >> HOOK UP A FAN NEXT TO YOUR DESK THAT JUST BLOWS WHEN YOU ARE IN THE GAME. IF YOU WANT TO BE IMMERSE. >> OR GET A BUCKET OF ICE AND DUMP IT ON ME WHEN IT STARTS HAILING.

>> SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE INTO IMPLEMENTING NEW TYPES OF WEATHER. ANY HURDLES WE HAVE TO GET ACROSS? >> PERFORMANCE IS A BIG ONE. ANYTHING THAT HAS PARTICLES. >> THAT IS ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE DO HAVE THE PERFORMANCE STUFF AND BUILD A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WEATHER SYSTEM IN THE BEDROCK VERSION. WE HAVE OOH LITTLE MORE FLEXIBILITY BUT YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT HOW MUCH WEATHER YOU PUT IN PERFORMANCE REGIONS. >> AND WE CURRENTRY HAVE THE PROBLEM, I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS A PROBLEM, MAYBE A DECISION, THAT . SO YOU COULD BE 10,000 MILES AWAY FROM YOUR FRIEND WHO IS PLAYING AT THE SAME TIME AND WHEN IT STARTS RAINING IT RAINS EVERYWHERE.

AND WHEN IT STAR STARTS SNOWINGT SNOWS EVERYWHERE. IT DOESN’T KIND OF WORK THE SAME WAY IN REAL LIFE. SO THOSE KIND OF THINGS LIKE THE MORE BIOME SPECIFIC WEATHERS OR MORE INTERESTING WEATHER, DO YOU REALLY WANT AURORA EVERYWHERE ON THE WORLD OR IN A NICE — WE HAVE NO PR PRECEDENT FOR SOMETHG THAT IS JUST REGIONS. >> LOCALIZED WEATHER. THE CLOSEST IS THAT IT DOESN’T ACTUALLY RAIN IT DESERTS. YOU ARE WALKING AROUND AND POURING ON YOU. WEATHER, SORRIY RATE NOW, JUST RAIN. BUT IF YOU ARE IN THE DESERT IT DOESN’T SHOW UP. AND IN LIKE A COLD BIOME IS TURNS INTO SNOW BUT STILL SECRETLY RAINING BEHIND THE SCENES. >> A LITTLE TRANSITION IN BEDROCK. BUT STILL PRETTY ABRUPT.

>> NEW WEATHER SOUNDS COOL. TIME FOR ONE MORE QUESTION BEFORE WE END THIS. THE NEXT ONE WE END IT ON A FUN NOTE. DO ENDERMEN RAGE BECAUSE THEY ARE BAD AT STARING CONTESTS? >> I THINK IT IS OBVIOUS. I CAN’T IMAGINE ANY OTHER REASON THEY WOULD BE SO UPSET THAT YOU LOOK AT THEM. JUST STARE AT THEM AND THEY JUST KEEP STARING BACK. >> HE HAS DONE IT AGAIN. >> AND THEN THEY QUIT. AND THEN THEY ATTACK YOU AND THEN YOU DIE. >> OKAY. WIAND WITH THAT WE ARE ENDING TS IMAGINE.

THANKS, EVERYONE, FOR TUNING IN. PL >> THANK YOU. SOMEONE IS EXCITED. >> I’M JOINED BY LYDIA. HOW ARE YOU DOING? >> I’M GOOD. FEELS NICE. SQUISHINGSOME CREATURES HERE. HOW DO YOU FEEL NOW THAT THE STAGE SHOW IS DONE? AMAZING. IT WAS A REALLY GREAT SHOW AND, YEAH, IT FEELS KIND OF SURREAL WHEN IT IS ALL DONE. IT IS LIKE WHEN YOU HAVE WORKED SO HARD ON SOMETHING IT ALMOST FEELS KIND OF SAD. >> YEAH.

I MEAN IT IS LIKE MONTHS AND MONTHS AND MONTHS OF PREP. >> YEAH. >> IT IS NOT JUST LIKE HEY, WE JUST LIKE GOT UP ON STAGE. PERSONAL PLAY FOR ME WATCHING IT, IT WAS CLEAR THA EVERYONE P- IT WAS CREATED WITH LOVE. THE CREATOORS IT WAS PERSONAL TO THEM AND REALLY COOL LIKE TV SHOW COMPETITIONS AND YOU WOULD SEE THAT ON A SATURDAY NIGHTY IT WAS AWESOME. WE WANTED TO CHANGE THE FORMAT AND GO TO A SHOW AND OVERINDEXED ABIT ON O HOW FORMAL IT IS AND E COMMUNITY WAS WE WANT MORE CASUAL AND MORE FUN. AND WE PICKED OUT THE AND REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT LIKE THE DIVERSE CAST THAT EACH HAS THEIR OWN WAY OF SPEAKING TO THEIR AUDIENCE AND THINGS WE LIKED AND WORKED ON SEGMENTS WOULD THEM AND REALLY GOT THEIR PERSONALITY AND TO THE HEART OF WHAT THEY LIKE.

CHAD BUILDING. AND ERIN L LIKE RELATIONSHIPS. MARTYN HE REALLY PLAYS GAMES. HE USED TO JUST KILL EVERYONE AND I WAS LIKE WHY. AND WITH YAMMY, SHE HAS REALLY BUILT THIS COMMUNITY AND PLAYED FOR SO LONG. AND THEN WHO AM I ANOTHER GETTING NOW. CHAD. WAIT. ERIN. YEAH. BigB, LIKE HE IS REALLY SHY AND HAS BUILT UP HIS CHANNEL. WE WANTED TO GIVE HIM A FORUM TO TALK ABOUT LIKE A AAH AUTHENTICY MAKING VIDEOS. HE IS CALM AND MAKING VIDEOS ABOUT WHAT WANTS. IT WAS REALLY AWESOME. THEY WERE THE HEART OF THE SHOW THAT WE WANT THE TO BRING BACK AND THEN THE MEET A MINECRAFTER. I’M SUPER HAPPY? ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOMENTS WAS EVERYONE’S FIRST VIDEO. I HAVEN’T SEEN YOU. YOU HAD SOME SERIOUSLY PINK HAIR, GIRL. >> IT WAS A PINK WIG FOR AWHILE AND THEN I DYED IT PINK AND THEN IT WAS TOO MUCH OF A PAIN. IT WAS REALLY FUN AND I THINK WHEN WE TALKED ABOUT THAT IT WAS FAR.

LIKE I STOPPED MAKING VIDEOS BUT FOR ALL OF THEM, THEIR VIEWERS THINK LIKE WOW, THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THIS GREAT BUT THAT IS NOT TRUE. THEY STARTED FROM, YOU KNOW, A VIDEO WHERE THE LIGHTING IS CRAZY AND YOU KNOW, FOR ME, WHERE I COULDN’T WALK AND LIKE IF YOU LOOK AT YAMMY AND AUREYLIAN, THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT 600 TWEETS OR A THOUSAND SUBSCRIBERS.

AND THOSE LIKE BEGINNING TIMES, THOSE WERE THE TIMES THAT WERE MY FAVORITE. AND IT IS REALLY COOL TO HAVE THE TWO OF THEM TALKING ABOUT LIKE HERE IS HOW WE STARTED AND HERE IS KIND OF WHAT YOU BUILD UP. >> AND I WILL THINK YOU KNOW THE QUALITY WE WERE TALKING ABOUT BEFORE ABOUT THE QUALITY, IF YOU KNOW, MINECRAFT VI VI VIDEOS ISO HIGH NOW THAT SOMEONE LIKE A FAN MUST BE INTIMIDATING TO WANT TO START ANYTHING BECAUSE THE BAR IS SET SO HIGH.

WHEN YOU START ANYTHING YOU WILL BE A BIT RUBBISH BUT DO IT FROM LEARNING. LEARN FROM DOING IT. >> IT IS. YOU KEEP TRYING AND THEN OVER TIME YOU GET BETTER AT IT. I THINK WHAT TIPS THEY GAVE TODAY ARE HOW YOU CAN START TRYING WITH WHAT YOU HAVE. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE LIKE HERE IS THE HUGE SETUP. I SAY THAT WHEN WE ARE ON A BEAUTIFUL SET. >> THIS IS FILMED ON A PHONE. THERE IS A GUY? >> THIS IS NOT FILMED ON A PHONE. THIS IS NOT. THIS IS. >> ABSOLUTELY NOT. >> BUT IT REALLY IS LIKE WE COULD BE FILMING, YOU KNOW, ON A COMPUTER AND MAKING GREAT CONTENT. AND SO WHEN YOU GET STARTED AND JUST DO IT, IT IS LIKE THEY SAID, CREATIVITY IS WHAT BRINGS IT TO LIFE.

>> I HAVE A QUESTION. HOW ON EARTH DO YOU KEEP ALL OF THIS STUFF SECRET? BECAUSE YOU KNOW, IT IS — YOU ARE LIKE A BIGGISH COMPANY. OBVIOUSLY WITH WHAT MICROSOFT IN REDMOND AND A LOT OF MOVING PARTS IN IT AND YOU SOMEHOW MANAGE TO KEEP THE STUFF TOTALLY UNDER WRAPS AND NO ONE FINDS OUT ABOUT IT. WHAT IS THE SECRET TO SECRETS? >> I DON’T KNOW ACTUALLY BECAUSE I — YEAH, A LOT OF TIMES THINGS LEAK AND EVERYONE IS ALWAYS WORRIED ABOUT IT LEAKING LIKE FROM OUR TEAM AND WE ARE ACTUALLY MUCH MORE CASUAL. WE ARE KIND OF LIKE, OH, YOU WANT TO KNOW THIS BUT IT NEVER LEAKS. I THINK THERE IS THAT LIKE TRUST BETWEEN PEOPLE AND MUTUAL EXCITEMENT. SO, YEAH, THERE IS A LOT OF COOL THINGS COMING THAT ARE ALL TOP SECRET RIGHT NOW. SO THE SECRETS THAT WE TOLD TODAY AND SECRETS STILL THERE. >> A LOT OF SECRETS. MULTILAYER. WHAT WAS FUN WAS SITTING WITH THE CREATORS AND THIS IS FRESH NEW TO THEM AND THEY ARE FREAKING OUT ALL THIS DIFFERENT STUFF. I HAVE TO SAY THERE WAS SO MUCH LIKEI FEEL LIKE THIS MINECON STD UP IN TERMS OF ANNOUNCEMENTS.

I HAVE NOTES THAT ARE LEFT RIGHT AND OVER DIFFERENT STUFF BECAUSE I HAVE RUN OUT OF SPACE. ALWAYS THE PLAN. IT WAS NONSTOP ANNOUNCEMENTS AND HUGE STUFF AND REALLY BIG STUFF. >> EVERY YEAR WE THINK ABOUT IT QUITE FAR AHEAD OF TIME LIKE WHAT WE REALLY WANT TO MAKE MIKE MINECON EARTH THIS IS OUR ANNOUNCEMENT TIME. LIKE THIS FEELS THE MOST . THIS YEAR IT REALLY STARTED GETTING PACKED IN.

LIKE HOW DO WE — >> ESCALATESCALATED QUITE SIGNIFICANTLY. TAKE A LOOK AT THE VIDEO. SHOT OVER IF YORICK. YOU YOU LIKE.THE GENERAL FEEL IE COMMUNITY WAS PANDAS. >> THAT WAS MY REACTION. BECAUSE EVERYONE LOVES PANDAS AND REALLY FUN AND BRIDGING THE TEAM WORKING ON MINECRAFT IN CHINA AND LIKE SAYING LIKE GIANT PANDAS WOULD BE REALLY COOL. AND I WAS VERY JEALOUS TO NOT GO TO THE SHOOT WITH SAMUEL. I WAS LIKE COULD I BE THE SOUND DESIGNER. BECAUSE IT IS F NICE AND FEELS AUTHENTIC TO THE COMMUNITY THERE. THE PART THAT IS REALLY BRINGING EVRYONE TOGETHER WITH THIS IS THAT EVERYONE IS EXCITED ABOUT THE T PANDAS.

A SPECIFIC COMMUNITY THING WE WOULD REALLY LOVE TO HAVE PANDAS. THEY ARE OUR NATIONAL TREASURE. OUR BEAUTIFUL AND WONDERFUL NATIONAL TREASURE. I THINK THAT IS SAID. BUT EVERYONE IS EXCITED ABOUT PANDAS. >> I MEAN YOU HAVE GOT TO BE PRETTY COLD-HEARTED IF YOU CAN’T BE LIKE OH, MY GOODNESS, IT’S ON ITS BACK. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU IF YOU DON’T FIND THAT COOL? >> AND THEY HAVE A LITTLE TINY SNEEZE. THAT WAS REALLY CUTIE WHAT IS YOUR BIG FAVE? >> MINECRAFT DUNGEONS IS THE BIG ONE FOR US. THE TEAM WORKED HARD AND HAVE BEEN WORKING ON IT A LONG TIME. A SMALL PASSIONATE TEAM THAT WAS WORKING AWAY SO FUN TO SHOW THAT AND TALK ABOUT IT.

FOR THEM, THEY HAVE BEEN WAITING LAKE THEN YOU ARE REALLY IN THE TOP SECRET PROJECT. WHAT DO YOU DO AT MINECRAFT? >> THINGS. LIKE STUFF. >> I MAKE SOME THING THAT I CAN’T TELL YOU. >> CAN’T TELL YOU ANYTHING ABOUT OR EVEN TALK ABOUT THERE IS A SECRET. THAT IS THE LEVEL OF WHAT THEY HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO TELL. FOR THEM, IT IS REALLY EXCITING AND WE’LL HAVE MORE NEWS COMING OUT ON THAT WHICH IS EXCITING FOR ALL OF US. >> WE ARE ALMOST OUT OF TIME. WE REALLY DON’T HAVE TIME TO GO THROUGH THE THINGS THAT HAPPENED. HUGE THANK YOU TO THE TEAM THAT PUT ON THE STAGE SHOW AND PRODUCTION AND THE STEAM FROM REDMOND AND MOJANG AND WELL. AND AND THANKS TO YOU GUYS WATCHING AT HOME. SEE YOU SAME TIME, SAME PLAY PLACE-ISH, NEXT YEAR. BYE! ♪ .
