And if you don't know what's in the new update, here's the list copied from Notch's blog:

+ Added pistons
+ Fire or redstone is now required to trigger TNT
+ Fences can be stacked
+ Added shears
+ Shears can be used to pick up leaf blocks
+ Shears can be used to shear sheep without hurting them
* Sheep no longer drop wool from being punched
- Removed Herobrine

Have fun with 1.7 everyone!

New Video (Kind of) + New Painterly Pack + Moog/Thimble Schematics

Hey everyone,

There is lots of stuff in this blog post.

First, I uploaded a video like 6 hours ago and it still hasn't showed up on Youtube. When I get up in the morning I'll check to see if it's there or not. I'll try uploading it again if it's not. The new video is about the new stuff in Moog City (of course) as well as a tour of Thimble Lake city, a city that my friend created and that has been moved into the same world as Moog City. Edit: It still hasn't shown up. I have just started re-uploading it to see if that works. Edit 2: The video is up!

Painterly Pack had a major update on my birthday (the 24th). It now has texture support for lots of mods (none of which I use). Nonetheless, I have updated my texture pack with textures that I like for all the supported mods so you can have those sweet Painterly textures for your mods. Download it here:

Finally, I've decided to put up major buildings in both cities as MCEDit .schematic files so if you have MCEDit, you can put them in your single/multiplayer worlds. I do have one request. If any of the schematics are shown in a video/picture, I would ask that you'd link to either here, or my Youtube channel ( You can link to the Through the Mines website when it's finished. I'll let you know when that is. Here is the download:

Summer Checklist:
- Finish Flickr Photos
- Upload High Resolution Photos
- Put some High Res photos on
- Create a different type of video (I can't just keep showing you Moog city!)
- Finish Through the Mines website.

Did I miss something?

Painterly Pack Updated + Video Soon!

Hi everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. School is almost over and I've been studying for finals. But tomorrow school lets out and I'll be working more on Through the Mines and Moog City.

First is a new Painterly Pack update. I've decided to only update my Painterly Pack when a new version of Minecraft come out that includes new blocks/items or when Painterly Pack has a major update. That way you won't always have to keep up with frequent updates.

Also, I'm working on a Through the Mines website (It's a cheapo Google Sites website though). It will have server info, a video hub, and possibly a blog hookup so you can see blog posts on the website.

The next video will be a Moog City video (again). I'll try to add some new stuff though.

Can't wait till tomorrow,

- Aidan
