Animal Cell Map Is So Close to Done.

I am getting very close to a release for the Animal Cell map for Minecraft: Education Edition, there have been some tests run by other mentors, and most of the map seems solid so far. I just spent about an hour making it a void world, which makes it look a whole heap better than the surrounds that used to be there and has bugged me for years!

The outside is pretty much as it always was, except for the void bit, the real work has been done on the inside. There is now a secret code to get flight capabilities.

Custom NPC skins and models, they were supposed to look like lab technicians in the colours of the organelles, but they appear to be more like ninjas, I am yet to decide whether to rename them or not.

The teleportation mechanic is quite neat, and the visual experience is every bit as good as it used to be in the older version of the map.

Now I just have to finalise the external links to videos I want, and then re-write the 'real life' companion booklet and get it live on the lesson site. It is so exciting to be able to spend the time on these forgotten children of mine and get them available to the community in a working fashion again.

Very quick visual update today, thanks for reading, as always feel free to leave a comment below.
