Big Fish

As a feature refined in the wake of the event from the previous week, we present to you Big Fish. Fishing in Minecraft can be fun and there is a related skill to give you skill points and money, but overall, it is not particularly interesting. We are starting to change that, with our own fishing game. You can gain extra rewards and skill points by fishing Big Fish!

Magic Cape and Angel Block

Magic Cape

This Angelic Feature Sunday, the Salesman at spawn has got two cool new items for you! At least one of them is a bit more expensive than usual, costing a brand new Elytra, but it's worth it!

The Magic Cape works like Elytra, but instead of soaring through the sky you can fly like in creative mode. Tap the JUMP key while in midair to engage flight mode. You can move in all directions, up and down, as you please. Usage will drain the cape's health bar until it drops to zero and stops working. It recharges while you are on the ground. You can enhance its durability via enchantments! This item is particularly useful for getting around whilst building.

The Angel Block is a glass block that can be placed in midair. It does not need to be placed against another block and will stay put in the direction you are facing. Get your Magic Cape, fly up in the sky and place this block to start any airborn or skyward structure you can imagine!

Mini Map

This Feature Sunday's addition is the "Mini Map" which is an item that displays the usual map view. Unlike normal maps in vanilla Minecraft however, this one centers on your player and follows you around as you explore the worlds of Winthier, be it at spawn, the build world, or the Resource world. This is mainly a convenience feature as it helps you find your way around. Claims are displayed on the map, so now you can find them more easily without spamming the golden shovel or using the website. It is also a preparation for future additions as this is an entirely custom map and we can display on it anything we want, so stay tuned!
