“Parrots on GumbyCraft,” animatedGIF by @GumbyBlockhead
Colourful Parrots and all the other spectacular goodness of the Minecraft 1.12 update have arrived on the GumbyCraft server. A few parrots have moved into the Gumby Chalet at the site of the 2017 Sign of the Times get-together. Further exploration in the wild should result in more being located.
In the meantime, Gumby is out searching for some new building materials in the far reaches of the Survival world, with plans on building a giant concrete structure of some kind!
With the arrival of the March Break, I have had a bit of time to explore the newly revised End that exists in the Minecraft 1.9 update.
After hopping and bridging my way from island of End stone to island of End Stone, I finally came upon an End City. I read up a bit on the new mob, the Shulker, and then engaged with the tower’s defenders. It took a while to sort out where they like to hide, but when all was said and done, they were history and I had a nice collection of End City loot. You can check out the receipts in the GIF above.
Since finding that first End City on Saturday evening, I’ve continued to explore and have since found three more towers. No sign of an End Ship yet, but the update is young.
The event get started at 8:30 pm and runs until midnight! Stop by Peller Estates Ballroom B at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls on November 5th, 2015 for some crazy Minecraft fun! Details in Lanyrd.com
