Change of Pace

Caution: Not related to MLP or Minecraft (you have been forewarned)

Lately, my creative outlet has been crocheting. I've done it for about 10 years, and I suppose you could call me decent at it. 

Also, as of late, I've been adoring the Geek & Sundry Twitch Channel and one of its shows, Critical Role, where a group of voice actors play Dungeons and Dragons.

About Donations

There’s been a change in the way you can donate to me. I’ve been fighting PayPal for a while trying to get them to let me get money to go through on my account and my bank is being uncooperative as well, so I changed the donations to Amazon Gift Cards. You can send as little as $.50 (us) if you like to CCraft. I might add things later on like tea or snacks that keep me going. For now, I’ll just dip my toe in the water with this process, since I am fed up with Paypal and their stupid account freezing ways. Nobody is under any obligation to send money. I am happy to continue making textures for a game and show I love.

For the wonderful person who sent me the $2 over Ko-fi, I apologize. If you still like what I do, that's great, but don't feel obligated to resend that money because Paypal refunded it to you. I hope you can forgive me for failing to get my account straightened out with Paypal, I take the blame for not getting that settled immediately. 

Stay positive!

CanterlotCraft 1.8

I've been working diligently (sorry for the silence) on CCraft 1.8. It is finally ready and in a state where I'm happy to release it!

More after the cut!

Another 1.8 Preview

Hey everyone, I thought I'd pop up to let you know that I am indeed still alive and kicking, and I've been rather busy creating more textures, even reworking some old ones that have been driving me crazy for a while. Check out the newest stuff after the cut!

CanterlotCraft for Minecraft 1.8 preview!

Hey everyone! Sorry that I've pretty much conducted radio silence since January. I figured I should give you all an update on what's going on in the world of Plum Blossom. More after the cut!

Applejack textures preview
I've been a busy little bee, working on bringing back textures I used to have uploaded to Minecraft Customizer. There were some textures that were based on items found in the background, mainly from the homes of the main cast, and I'm making the endeavor to bring them forward in time to the current version(s) of Minecraft. I've got most of the Applejack alternatives decided upon, and I'll be making separate packs for each pony and probably a pack of miscellaneous ones for your browsing pleasure.

Applejack is nearly finished, and after that I'll be working up some alternate textures based on Fluttershy's house, and just work my way down the line. There may be duplicates from the original CanterlotCraft, as I tried to include a lot of background objects from the show contained in some packs, but I'll do my best to get new textures churned out for each pack.

New Year, Same stuff

Just a quick update for the followers.

I've managed to replace my laptop's brick, so the files of anything in-progress for CCraft are now obtainable. I will begin working on new textures shown in the snapshots soon, and as usual will release them when 1.8 is released.

I know some people are confused and ask me, "Plum, how come you don't update for some updates and not others?" I read the blotters when the game launches. If it says that a new block/item/entity has been introduced, I will usually go out of my way to make a texture for it. If not, and it's just technical things like improving performance of the game itself, I just let it be. I am quite lazy most of the time (you should see my WIP pile of crocheted items, huge), so when I see an update such as the latter example, I just shrug it off till the next MAJOR update (new content, items/blocks/entities, you get the idea). I also try to follow the snapshots and go file diving for new blocks and the like. I try to keep up, but circumstances being what they are sometimes, I get behind on things (CCraft is not a huge priority, I make it for fun), I'm only human, and I have flaws like anyone else, so try not to lift me upon a pedestal, it only makes me look down on you (see what I did there?)

Anyway, thanks for reading my crazed ramblings. I wanted everyone who follows here that I am indeed alive and well (for the most part), and I'll try to throw as much energy as I can spare toward CCraft.

Till next time,
