Microsoft, the maker of Minecraft, announced that Minecraft players selling items in the new Minecraft Marketplace have earned over $1 million since the marketplace was launched at the end of June.
Minecraft Marketplace allows players to create and sell custom items in the game, such as character designs and skins, maps, stories and other accessories. It appears to be a response to Roblox’s rise in popularity, which focuses heavily on letting players create and sell custom games.
You can access Minecraft Marketplace on the Windows 10 desktop version of the game and the iOS and Android editions. It’s not yet available on the XBox, Playstation or Switch.
Minecraft version 1.12 (World of Color) has been released! Here’s what the official blog had to say…
Yellow Sunlight, chili red, royal blue, midnight dark, grass green, lilac purple, accurate lime, fresh salmon, incredibly hot cappuccino, pretty much all the off- white-colored, annoying cyan, alpha-tested magenta, that brown-greenish barf shade… the global world of Color update is here now! (Minecraft Java Edition 1 . 12, editor’s note. )
With this update you are brought by us a brand new take on all of the colored blocks in Minecraft, using the infamous “Jonni Palette 0. 2” for wool, sheep, shulker boxes, and banners, and introducing glazed terracotta, coloured beds, and colored cement. These enable you to get many new choices to building multi-colored creations in your meticulously prepared spawn area.
We asked the community showing us what they could perform with the brand new blocks – and the outcomes were a technicolor triumph! We had taken a few of our favorites and place them in the trailer below!
I have been kind of busy this week with making a lot of my own Minecraft Maps. I’m still learning some of the tools and techniques but am having a lot of fun with it all. I will post some of my best map creations once I finish a few more.
In the meantime, I started assembling some articles and guides on the different kinds of Minecraft Maps that you can play and some details on the tools and techniques you should use. I hope you enjoy the guides.
