This Is Good News For The Future Graphics Of Minecraft

Minecraft has a great personality, but it's not the prettiest game in the world. Fortunately for the more superficial of us, developer Notch has taken some of that Minecraft money and hired a great artist, one you already know.

That'd be the Swedish artist who calls himself "Junkboy." You may remember him from such JPEGs and GIFs as this Portal and Ico mash-up or these 22 spectacular "demakes" of modern and classic games. The accomplished pixel and digital paint artist is now one of the full-time staffers making Minecraft better and prettier.

To see more of Junkboy's work, hit his deviantArt account and start fantasizing about how much better Creepers will look when Minecraft makes its way out of alpha.

Survival Mode Multiplayer is priority #1 [Minecraft - thanks, Jonathan!]

For the more 'superficial' among you Minecraft has long had many ways to spruce up the game.

The above is:

Dokus RPG pack - [www.minecraftforum.net]

I rock the custom Painterly Pack:

Some people may be interested in the clean visuals of the 3D Dot Heroes pack:

And for those who will trip over themselves for anything 'HD':

Mixcraft HD:

And

Kazers Semi-Realistic

The last too bump up the texture resolution. This may cuase slowdown in your game, so not a good idea if you're one of the folks already struggling to fit it's 1GB RAM requirement.

For me personally the best bit of that post was that SMP IS PRIORITY NUMBA UNO!!

Really disappointed when Boo came without any changes to SMP, in fact it's introduced a ton of game killing performance bugs that have been destroying servers, so hopefully his rest will be a quick 40 winks.

New map on the koatkuites is coming along nicely after Day One:
