Hey all.

Pixelmon 4.2 for Minecraft 1.8.9 will be released later today. I'll tell you now, later and repeatedly when you complain you can't install it that you will need to use the Forge we recommend, as we do with all our releases.


Update :- Pixelmon 4.2 is now out, make sure to use the recommended forge! And if you are using the Pixelmon launcher, make sure you have the latest version (1.1.56 and above).

4.2 changelog

Just after the release of 4.2 we'll be starting a safari match, which this time you're all invited to, but it's whoever gets in first of course! http://everytimezone.com/#2016-2-9,660,cn3 is the time we will start, and the address again is beta1.pixelmonmod.com (This is also filled in automatically by the launcher)
Oh, and if someone happens to beat our devs and get placed in first, they can win our fancy dev hats.

Best of luck!

From Sketchfab :-
In a world built on three dimensional pixels, a hero must design and build a fantasy voxel world and protect it from an unknown evil that may determine the fate of an entire kingdom. Export your tale to Sketchfab using annotations to tell your story and by the power of Greyskull… you might be victorious!

We’re excited about the recent popularity of ‘Voxel’ art here at Sketchfab! If you’re new to this: Voxels are 3-dimensional ‘pixels’. You can think of voxel art as ‘3D pixel art’.

For artists it’s an attractive, minimalist medium to create their work with. The constraints of working with basic cubic shapes and the absence of texture maps force them to reduce their concepts to the absolute minimum. And yet, the resulting work is usually surprisingly figurative and vibrant - take a look in our Voxel gallery!

We thought it would be a great theme for our next contest. And as the medium is already so restrictive, we thought we should give you some more freedom in the topic: Fantasy. So we’re talking about castles, knights, wizards, dragons and all that.

Tell us a story through a diorama, and use annotations to tell a story and guide us through as it unfolds. Each contestant will receive a month of Sketchfab PRO so you can use up to 20 annotations per scene.

We’ve got an exciting pot of prizes for you, and we have an amazing group of judges - both artists and creators of renowned voxel tools - who will use all their expertise to help us pick the winners.
Enjoy!


Here’s what you can win!

Pixelmon News 30th January

I'm Back!

Had a great holiday and now full of energy and excited for what the next year holds for Pixelmon :-D
Image

There's a pic of one of the places I visited while I was away. Was pretty stunning as I'm sure you'll agree. Please share any photos of your holidays with us in the comments section!

I've had a bit of a look around the forums but will take me a few days to get on top of it all. However, I can announce the winner of the last poll, "What Next?".

There were 2 options there that got far more votes than the others so what we'll do is add both!

Gyms - The plan will be to work on it in a way that's similar to existing structures and npcs, I'll get the whole code framework up and running and then we'll open it up to submissions from all of you for the actual gyms and gym leaders. Get building, we'll be wanting lots of variety in our gyms, feel free to go mad with redstone puzzles or parkour if that's your thing.

Improved Wild Pokemon Behaviour - Once gyms are done I'll get to work on this. Adding layers upon layers of extra ai to wild pokemon. I'm pretty excited about getting the chance to work here and to see what sort of emergent behaviour will come as a result.

Let me know how your holidays went and what you got up to. Also feel free to comment on your ideas for those 2 new features!

We'll have a new release up by the end of next week all things going to plan. It will have the update to 1.8.9 which I'm told will massively decrease ram requirements for running pixelmon in minecraft due to a whole heap of improvements in the core minecraft renderer.
