Minecraft command list [1.14] – server commands

People have been tinkering with Minecraft commands from the moment they were able to early on in Minecraft's alpha. Since then there have been some incredible feats possible in Minecraft, like creating custom game modes that use Minecraft the template. Without commands, popular game types including "Hunger Games" would likely not exist. Even if your ambitions are more humble, we've put together this collection of…

Feature: Not all dogs go to heaven

Hounded Out: The adventures of a Minecraft hermit, finale

Previously on Hounded Out: I have brought food, and have made peace with the townies. But after spending the night in the cursed place, my precious dog, Goat, has been taken to Hell. I'd never been to Hell. It seems obvious, right? I never go to hell because of course I don't. Why would I want to? Spare me your "endgame" nonsense. My endgame is…

The buzz about town is that Minecraft just added bees

We no longer have bees in the real-world, the last one having left to fly to its home planet of HV-1 last Tuesday, so Minecraft has memorialised our buzzy buds by adding them as a new mob. The fuzzy little dancers are a neutral mob who’ll happily fill your game with honey for you to enjoy, and have just set up a hive in the…

Feature: Tillage the village

Hounded Out: The adventures of a Minecraft hermit, part three

Previously on Hounded Out: My dogs and I narrowly survive a heroic rescue of the townies in their sinister underground excavation. Our generosity rebuffed, we head North, seeking peace in the wilderness. Travelling with three easily distracted dogs makes it difficult to get lost, as you retread your path every few minutes to retrieve them. This has probably saved me from getting lost for months,…

Feature: The Battle Royale of Battle Royales

Games like Fortnite – the best battle royale games you can play right now

Fortnite: Battle Royale, I think it's fair to say, is the standout title of the decade-old battle royale game genre. Not since Minecraft have we seen a game enter the mainstream in this way - but that doesn't mean Fortnite is the only battle royale out there that's worth playing. We'll go over just a few of the very best battle royale games like Fortnite…

Feature: Now with added Minecraft and Dying Light 2

All the Nvidia RTX ray tracing and DLSS games confirmed so far

It's Gamescom this week, which can only mean one thing - more confirmed ray tracing games for Nvidia's RTX and selected GTX 16-series graphics cards. Indeed, the big one that's just been announced is Minecraft, which (like Quake II RTX) is getting full, real-time ray tracing support for everything from water reflections to its entire lighting system. That's not all, though. Dying Light 2 will…

Minecraft gets official ray tracing support for Nvidia RTX cards

Just last week, Mojang announced they had cancelled Minecraft's Super Duper cross-platform graphics pack, citing too many technical difficulties in getting it all up and running. Well, there's sort of good news for those of you still yearning for a good-looking version of the blocky sensation, as Nvidia have just announced the Windows 10 edition of the game will be getting official real-time ray tracing…

Super Duper has gone down the pooper as Minecraft cancels graphics pack

It was E3 in 2017 when Mojang announced that they were going to take the bold, nay daring, step of making Minecraft look good. That step was known as the Super Duper Graphics Pack, which would make the game look like a well-implemented community patch. But yesterday those hopes were dashed on the jagged, aliased edge of a square of stone, as it was announced…

See how Minecraft Earth’s mobs could work on the PC

One of my grander statements about gaming is that, in time, all games and all worlds will be rendered within Minecraft. And I was right because a new mod brings the pigs and chickens of unreleased mobile AR game Minecraft Earth to the PC version of the game, technically rendering Minecraft within Minecraft. I can’t get more righter than that.

Hounded Out: The adventures of a Minecraft hermit, part one

You may have noticed that some of us have been playing a lot of Minecraft lately, topical, finger-on-the-pulse website that we are. Nate set up an unofficial RPS server, prompting everyone to clack together wood and stone and iron to carve their creative path through the chasm-marked green idyll we appeared in. We'll turn the dangerous ravine into a harmless water feature, the gang said.…

Feature: Bottled ants

Game DNA: growing order from chaos

The summer of 1991 was all about ants. I was seven years old, and I spent the entire school holiday camped in the garden, gently catching winged queens and housing them in shitty coke bottle formicariums. There I would watch them lay eggs and create workers, who would dig tunnels, search about the place, and scurry in lines with grains of food in their jaws.…

Have You Played… Minecraft?

At first, I couldn’t believe nobody had written a ‘Have You Played’ about Minecraft, given the sheer mass with which it looms over the last decade of game history. But that’s it, isn’t it? It’d be like writing “Have You Seen… The Sky?” or “Have You Tasted… Bread?” Even if you’ve not played Minecraft, you know exactly what it is. It was the little indie…

Research shows Minecraft can make you more creative, but it depends

Researchers at Iowa State University have unlocked the secret to creativity, and that secret is Minecraft. Kind of. The researchers got two groups to play Minecraft, another to play "a NASCAR racing game", and another to watch TV. Then they all drew aliens and had their creativity judged based on how far their drawings strayed from boring human anatomy. The group that played Minecraft without…

Minecraft: Story Mode downloads might vanish on June 25th

Adding one final indignity to the catastrophic fall of Telltale Games, it appears that their kid-friendly (and admittedly rather naff) Minecraft: Story Mode adventure series may be more than just delisted from stores soon. A blog post on the official Minecraft site warns that even players that own Minecraft: Story Mode, seasons one or two, may not be available to download it after June 25th.…

Visit Minecraft’s theme park map to celebrate its 10th birthday

As part of Minecraft's tenth birthday celebrations, Mojang have commissioned a virtual theme park celebrating the build 'em up. It's available as a free map for all players. Exhibitions include a sculpture garden of monsters in a glasshouse, demonstrations of redstone-powered doohickeys, museums, galleries, Easter eggs... it seems real fancy. A season of festivities for a mere tenth anniversary might seem churlish but hell, Minecraft…

Minecraft Classic is a free browser-based piece of history

As part of Minecraft's tenth anniversary celebrations, Mojang have dusted off an early 2009 iteration, packaged it up into free, browser-friendly format and called it Minecraft Classic. This nearly-decade-old build is an interesting museum piece, not quite a game yet, but it was still unmistakably Minecraft at this point. Players are free to generate and explore procedurally generated worlds and build with a palette of…

Minecraft’s original developer isn’t invited to its 10th anniversary bash

It's been a big year for Minecraft, that monolithic devourer of children's free time, and Microsoft are gearing up to celebrate its tenth anniversary. They just won't be sending any invitations to original lead developer Markus "Notch" Persson, whose "comments and opinions" online have gotten him kicked off the mega-corporation's christmas card list, according to Variety. This comes shortly after the game's current developers removed…

Licensed to illage: Minecraft launches Village & Pillage update

The world of Minecraft has become a little more alive this week with the launch of the Village & Pillage update. It gives villagers new jobs, creates new styles of village, whacks in a Bamboo Jungle biome, unleashes pandas, arms us with a crossbow, and adds a pillager faction with their own bases who'll raid villages unless we fend them off. Some parts of all…
