MINECON Live 2019: Realms Plus and Character Creator

So what do you two do on the Minecraft
team? Hi, I’m Alina, I’m the Business Manager for Realms on the Marketplace
team. I’m Fredrik and I’m the Program Manager for Realms. So you’re gonna announce
something cool but first tell us about what Realms is. So Realms is a really
good way to play with your friends. When you subscribe you get a personal server
right in the cloud so it’s always online and always accessible and your friends
will play for free with you so you’re the only one who have to subscribe. And how many people can play on a server? So we have two tiers, so you can either go
for the two player tier or the ten player tier. Awesome. And what are you going to
tell us about today? Realms Plus. It’s our new subscription that combines Realms with Marketplace content. That is awesome. So what does that mean? Realms, which you just told us about, plus Marketplace content. So with Realms Plus, just like
before you will have access to your Realm, ten-player Realm and all the cool features
that come with it. But in addition you will have the entire catalog of
Marketplace content. Skins, worlds, mashups, resource packs. That is awesome. Fredrik, how many pieces of content will be coming to the first version of Realms Plus? We will be launching with over 50 pieces of content. [LYDIA] And then they’ll be changing each month? Yeah every month we will get new content on there, yeah, it’s gonna be really good. Amazing. And Alina your son has a Realm, I think we have a photo
of it. [ALINA] Of course. [LYDIA] So what has he built here with his friends? [ALINA] Yes this is his
Realm where he plays with his neighborhood and school friends and it’s
really fun and adults join too, their parents. It’s a cool place to hang out and
we really like to see you know what kids do and how they show off their secret
knowledge of Minecraft with all the strategies and tricks that they get from
YouTube videos and reading the Minecraft books. Do I spy a very adorable Microsoft building in there? Yes, some people just like to go to
work! [LYDIA] I guess he does! I think we definitely have to say a hi to your son then so hello to Andrew, thanks for letting us show off your Realm! We know he’s watching at home
so, thank you. So this sounds amazing, how do people start using it how do they get
Realms Plus? So when we launch Realms Plus, and we will be launching soon, we will
have a free trial for new players so you get 30 days for free if you’re already a
subscriber for the ten-player Realm on Bedrock we will upgrade you
automatically for free. [LYDIA] And the price won’t change, it’s gonna stay $7.99 so how did you decide on that because that’s really cool you’re adding all of this
stuff to it. Absolutely that was very important to us we just wanted to give our players
more options, more fun things to play with and keep the price the same. It’s
very simple, one subscription $7.99 with Realms and content. And we will be adding more things every single month so that there will be something for everyone. [LYDIA] That is amazing, thank you Alina and Fredrik! [Audience applause] Let’s look at a preview of some of the
awesome content coming to Realms Plus. [MUSIC] [Audience applause] Now I’m joined by Sarah and Jared from
the Character Creator team. Thanks for having us here! Thank you for having us. [LYDIA] What do each of you do on the Character Creator team? [SARAH] I’m an Art Lead on the Character Creator team. [JARED] And I’m a game designer on it that is That is awesome. So today we’re gonna take a look at Character Creator and we’re just gonna get right into it so you can tell
us about it. [JARED] Sounds good. Yeah, absolutely. So the Character Creator is fun because there’s all sorts of different aspects of your character that
you can change, like you can change your skin tone and texture, your eyes, your
mouth, your hair, and change the color of all of those different pieces, and then
layer your clothes on top of it. [JARED] Yeah it’s something we came up with for Minecraft Earth because just as we’re putting Minecraft into the real world, we wanted
a new way to let you put yourself into the game and really represent you. And so
adding a bunch of more flexibility for you to build a character piece by
piece, we’re really inspired by skins this kind of builds off the like history
of players like building their own skins but kind of letting you do that inside
the game out of all these different parts. And one of the cool things here
you can see is doing like limb replacements, there are all sorts of
different stuff that lets you represent whatever you look like in real life if
that’s what you want to do in the game. [LYDIA] That’s awesome. And all of those players
get it automatically yeah yeah all that Yeah, yeah all that stuff comes for everybody to start building their character automatically. That is really cool. Why was it – [Audience Applause] Thank you! Why was it important to you, added things
like prosthetics and all different skin tones and different body shapes. Why is
that important to you? Well because you know Minecraft players are from all
walks of life, right. Anybody. And it’s always fun just to see a part of
yourself in the game so we wanted to make sure to like try to include as many
people as possible. [LYDIA] That is awesome. And how many characters can you have? You can make up to five different characters and you can save
those in either game, they’ll sync back and forth between Minecraft Earth and
Minecraft and we just wanted you to have that flexibility to build maybe like one
kind of look is what you use when you’re farming and you’re playing that
role with your friends or maybe when you’re playing something competitive, PvP,
you might want to be a little more intimidating and try and like do
something that really encompasses that so there’s all sorts of different
clothing options to build off of that and really trying to put some of the the
coolest ideas our team’s come up with are like in there to show off like
what’s possible with this. It’s good to note though it is just kind of cosmetic
self-expression stuff, it doesn’t actually change the way you play.
Everything is just how you look. That’s awesome. And you said that this is
inspired by Minecraft Earth. How does it fit into Minecraft Earth? With a mob of
me? Yeah there’s this cool little thing that when you’re when you’re in
Minecraft Earth there’s a mode called build mode which lets you put a build
plate here like in this case down on my desk, and then I can put a little
representation of myself into the the world I’m creating because
maybe it’s like it just makes the world more alive but it’s not just a
static structure, but if I put a character in there and then I can watch
him wander around and it’s super delightful for me especially when he
wanders off the build plate and takes a look at like my coffee mug or something
sitting right next to it. So it’s a tiny version of Jared like tiny Agnes and Jens! Everyone can have their own now. So you’re gonna show us a few things that no one has seen which
one is achievements and how you get special things for achievements in the
game. Yeah this is something that’ll come slightly after the launch of Character
Creator but we really want to let players show off what they’ve
accomplished in Minecraft through what they wear. So like in this case you can
earn a lumberjack shirt when you chop down a tree for the first time, or when
you craft your first hoe will give you a little a toothpick wheat thing there, and
then if you play the game a really long time will give you a
really long hair and beard that you can equip to your character to show that off.
And then this is probably my favorite item that we’re adding, is this like fish
globe that covers your head that you get if you build a conduit in survival mode.
So all these things will have stuff in Minecraft Earth and Minecraft that you
can earn through challenges and achievements. [LYDIA] Awesome. [Audience Applause] And the next thing we’ll jump right into
because I know people will be very excited to hear about it. Yeah for sure
so the sort of two things that are upcoming are capes are coming to the
Character Creator [Audience Applause] Very excited about that. And you emotes so
you’ll be able to like dance and wave and have a cape in the Character Creator
and also in it you have any custom skins or skins that you’ve loved for a really long time and are very attached to it will all work with that. And how will people
get these awesome capes? They can grab them right now in the in the Marketplace
for free there’s one available for everybody if you want to go get it. Right
now it just attaches to the skins that come with the pack that you get, but when
Character Creator launches you’ll be able to attach it to any one of the
skins you’ve used in the past or a new character you build with Character
Creator. [LYDIA] Awesome. Thank you so much Sarah and Jared,
Character Creator looks amazing. [Audience Applause]

  1. @Minecraft , we do love our skins. I just wish there was a better way to display our armor without hiding our skins when we wear it. Maybe a diamond (or appropriate armor type) headband for the helmet, or armband for chest, knee pads for legs, and sole for boots. And for enchants the same but we will just have the glow like the enchanted armor displays. That way our skins are not hidden, but the appearance of armor is still displayed as well.

  2. between the awkward dialogue and pointless updates, emotes and charging you for things an 8 year old can set up for free, I would have thought this was a parody.

  3. Spk. pomimo tego że minecraft mi nie leży to chyba zaczynają coś robić dobrego ze swoją marką. A tak poza tym to ten kto czeka na MC Dungeons ten like.

  4. Damn, I got all excited thinking that realms might just add competent administrating tools for once. Even an optional anti-hack would've been nice. I don't mean to dump on the parade, but really??

  5. So you STILL cant use your custom created skin on any platform that isnt Java.

    Why must they take so unbelievably long to do ANYTHING and when they finally do it they still miss the mark by an extreme longshot

  6. In the 1.12 days, Minecraft just seemed, so, outdated, I guess. But when the next update came, everything started to come in all at once, and Minecraft just came to life.

    First Fortnite,
    then ROBLOX,
    then Minecraft.
    If any Mojang staff members are seeing this, take this bit of advice. ROBLOX recently added Emotes, but I don't know about it. They took it too far, and it took away from the "BLOX" in ROBLOX. Just don't ACTUALLY ADD MORE THINGS THAT COME OFF OF EMOTES, like animations, and keep the original Minecraft walk, run, idle, jump, and all that stuff how it is. We don't want Minecraft to become Fortnite.

  7. Well gess what, on Java edition you always have access to unlimited skins, maps, minigames, mods and resource packs. Who in their right mind would play Bedrock edition?!

  8. Custom Skins to be replaced by a less custom character creator = No Aliens, Less 2D Pixels, Less Naked People, More 3D Hair, and you can't make your own clothing, hats, skin, hair, face, eyes, and etc. so KEEP CUSTOM SKINS.




    Minecraft The Best Game Forever!

    At first. I play alone and without mods.

    Need to make the game more interesting for the game alone!

    Here is what I propose for this.

    For me is most important thing in Minecraft is the infinite worlds! This is not possible without the endless depths and heights!

    Please add the infinite height and depth! 60.000.000 * 60.000.000 * 60.000.000 blocks! This can be an experimental mode for #Minecraft java (Or at least 1000 blocks in height and 1000 blocks in depth)

    Must improve world generation! The sea level must set to 0 height. Lakes and rivers can be with a height difference. Chunk 32 * 32 * 32 or 64 * 64 *64

    When playing one, it's interesting to explore new territories, biomes, caves, deep caves, very deep caves, 1000 blocks down, 10,000 blocks down. Add fast elevators!

    Personally me more interesting to discovering new caves than build.

    It is necessary to make 1000 blocks up and 1000 blocks down for a comfortable creativity and game. Or at least 512 blocks up and down! Caves are also needed!

    Add the flying islands and create floating, moving houses! The fuel can be used coal, redstone, lapis lazuli, or add oil or add sails!

    Add natural disasters. Local changes in the structure of the world. Destruction, fires, floods, damage and destroy buildings, etc:

    1. Volcanoes. Emissions of lava and black smog. Trees and wooden buildings burn.

    2. Earthquakes. Cracks in the earth's crust. The buildings from the earth, cobblestones, wood, etc. collapsed.

    3. Tsunami. Near the oceans. A big wave causes a flood.

    4. Hurricanes. You can fly away and crash. It breaks trees, houses of wood and earth.

    5. Meteorites. Big boom. Crater, fires, burning trees.

    6. Herds of monsters (zombies, skeletons, spiders and creepers), which sometimes go right through the player chunk region. Break doors, walls, boards and the ground to get to the players and friendly mobs.

    (This can be disabled in the game settings).

    I want a new underground biomes!

    Huge crevices and abysses which can be down using mountaineering equipment (alpenstock, a lot of ropes and nails).

    More mobs, subterranean gnomes, trolls.

    Add translucent flying ghosts. Add devils that guard the diamonds at lower levels and spawn in tunnels and from lava, and which emit horrible sounds and pass through walls.

    Giant underground worms that break through the tunnels (like in a movie 'Tremors' and 'Dune').

    You can hunt them to get valuable resources If the worm is close. everything starts shaking.

    It is necessary to strengthen the home and chests with things from the loss.

    I want the high mountains!

    What is this mountains which you can climb for a few seconds. 128 blocks is not a mountain, it is pile of rubbish! ;(

    Mount Everest 8850 blocks. Olympus Mons 21200 blocks!

    Experience of climbing on them with the help of climbing equipment (no stairs).

    Of course the caves inside the mountains and valuable resources at high altitudes.

    With earthquakes and volcanoes and lava up in the middle of huge mountains.

    I also need to diving equipment.

    Deep water with sharks and dangerous octopuses and devil-fish.

    At great depth and at high altitude, you can find rare treasures and resources.

    In each biome you can find a rare artifact. You can collect the whole collection from different biomes!

    With such large distances need to craft teleports.

    Make if hit one animal, all who are close to flee.

    Add gardening. More fruit trees and more fruits from them. Fruit trading with residents.

    Add a telescope or binoculars.

    I like 'Paint the Town Red' game. I would like to see in Minecraft damage to players and monsters in this style.

    I play vanilla only. Add mods for vanilla!

    (Thanks for Realms!)

    I love playing Minecraft at night. Need more ambient. More mystery and mysticism in the game. For example, add the phases of the moon. More dangerous monsters in full moon, with glowing eyes.

    In full moon at this time of bloom rare magic flowers that produce shine. you need to find and collect. From them you can make potions, such as rare protection against monsters (you can walk at night, monsters do not see the player and around player sparkle sparks or flying fireflies).

    Or add a mystical biomes, which can be accessed only from certain places, at certain times. In these biomes, instead of the usual resources, you can find all sorts of new, mysterious and rare resources and objects.

    You can do a parallel world, and the ability to move in time, you can get into the future or the past and see yourself and intervene in the course of time. That would be interesting.

    Add the ability to do high resolution screenshots and panoramas with renderer.

    Each new version Minecraft can add new artifacts for lovers of adventure and search (1 per region, or the current biome).

    Add a generation Crazy worlds, where the blocks are generated randomly and alternately and at any altitude.

    Return Herobrin that can erase the current save game player in the world, if the player died.

    Add monster Eraser (or a few), monsters that erase or change, break a game world.

    Add a swarm of Mantrid's/Herobrine's flying drones, which disassemble the world in blocks, and build from blocks even more drones. As into LEXX. (the rate depends on the destructibility of the blocks)

    Add herds of monsters (zombies, skeletons, and creepers), which sometimes go right through the player chunk region.

    Add more artificial intelligence to monsters.

    Add a variety of frightening sounds in dark places and echoes.

    Add the opportunity to put a torch on the water lilies.

    Add skis.

    Add rhinoceroses.

    Add the background sounds of birds in the forest, subsiding in the evening, but the sounds of owls and crickets appear. And in the swamps the sound of frogs, for example. In each biome, you can add sounds in the settings.

    Add uranium ore and radiation for more dangerous in caves. Can be used for fuel and mega TNT.

    Add birds of prey, eagles (in the mountains) or vultures (in the deserts) so that the player can not feel safe in the open area.

    Add Hunting for Bigfoot (also known as Sasquatch, as a yeti) which appears only in a dark night (at 0% brightness in the settings), and disappears when dawn. And which is almost impossible to catch. May appear very far at sunset, on top of the mountain. If you move in his direction begins to run away and hide. And he also makes a loud scream. He quickly runs away into dark caves, hiding, and can kill from one time. In the cave, he shoots down the torchs to make it dark. He hides in corners so as not to be killed from the bow. If you turn on dynamite, it runs away. At dawn disappears even in the cave. If you kill him, his head falls out and maybe something else rare.

    Add villagers – builders who build houses. When the player gives them resources. Add them an artificial intelligence for self-learning.

    Add craft Super-Bombs! Mega-bomb of 9 blocks TNT, which is 10 times more powerful than TNT. Giga-bomb of 9 blocks Mega-bombs, which is 10 times more powerful than Mega-bomb and 100 times more powerful than TNT. Tera-bomb of 9 blocks of Giga-bombs … etc >:)

    Add a map constructor, a mob designer. So that you can create your own mobs. Or shop extra mobs. But not a replacement for standard ones, but as an addition!

    You can greatly extend the game using the constructor. (for vanilla Meincraft). All new mobs, ores, artifacts, items, biomes, etc., will fall into the base of the Minecraft store and are available for everyone in vanilla Minecraft.

    Add portals to move between saved worlds and Realms and other.

    Add the ability to make portals to other worlds (with other seeds) and between worlds in Realms.

    Make passes into parallel chunks or blocks. Pockets. For example, you can go to such a chunk on one side, and from all other sides it will be another chunk / chunk, a separate parallel world. Or the mysterious door-portals, the house where you enter the door in one place, and you leave completely in another place (parallel additional world).

    Or, for example, a circular corridor along which you can go and get into another world. Or dig, and stumble upon an inconspicuous block into another world, disguised as an ordinary block of earth or stone. Block-2 parallel chunk.



    Here is my Minecraft 2D free print and play open world randomly-generated survival sandbox board game https://www.facebook.com/RHOMBICS/posts/1855981007961308 Enjoy! 🙂

    You can draw and print your blocks up to infinity!

  10. Not gonna lie I cringed really hard when they said emotes and everyone just went silent, also the kid was definitely told to build a Microsoft building

  11. i hate that mc is now turning in to microtransaction game with stupid
    Dances and Skins because of this mc can never go to its original spark….

  12. .

    wait… so realms costs more than mobile?

    And the skin ideas, thing isn't fully customizable like in java… i guess yeah cool longer hair, but still more money.

    Oh cool Microsoft implementing their achievement gift stuff.

    Cool I love the Emotes mods.

    So much new cool expensive stuf.
    J A V A

  13. Lets not make the emote ruin minecraft so stop spamming “everyone stoped clappppping ven they announce emotess”

  14. Seeing this saddens me a bit. Specifically the character creator in how it limits the number of skins to 5 and it looks like half of it is going to be locked behind the usual microtransaction wall most large developers have taken to.

  15. Can someone tell me if the character creator is coming to Java? It'd be cool to have 3d hair and stuff on skins.

  16. Damn bro these past years of me I laying Minecraft I’ve always wanted capes and to customize my own skin and it’s finally coming mojang is doing really good keep it up
