Create a papercraft world! Win cool stuff!

Diorama Comp

The crafty chaps at 57 digital have just announced an exciting competition. It’s in celebration of a new update to Minecraft Papercraft Studio.

All you need to do it harness your crafting might, create an awesome papercraft diorama using Minecraft Papercraft Studio, and submit a picture of it to their tumblr.  We’re judging the top entries, then 57digitial are sending out awesome prizes, which you can see by clicking the  image above.

It’s probably worth taking advantage of their most recent update in your creation: Papercraft Studio now features “EasyCraft” tiles that let you turn a common cardboard box into something significantly more exciting. Here’s a video that explains how it works.

In other news, an Android version of Minecraft Papercraft Studio is currently in development. More on that soon.

Good luck!

The most popular seeds on Minecraft Seeds Pro

Seeds are strings of numbers and letters that can be used as a starting point for Minecraft worlds. Use the same seed as another player to create your landscape and you’ll end up in an identical environment.

Minecraft Seeds Pro is an app for iOS and Android that takes advantage of this. It’s a community-based resource that lets you search for specific seeds and discuss them with other users. You can also link your Minecraft account(s) to Seeds Pro and use it to keep in touch with friends. Soon, the app will include support for Minecraft videos too.

We thought it would be cool to show off the most popular seeds on each platform. Use the names of each seed (in bold) to generate your level. Download the app for more seeds. Have fun!
