Fun With Lots Of Storage And Adorableness!
Minecraft Bats, Pots, And Competitions Here at Mojang Studios, we’ve been working on this competition for days, and today is the official launch date. As you may recall, painted pots with a storage feature were tested in November and are now being introduced to the game. This implies that you can spend as much time as you like between now and forever* filling your adorned pots with a single stack of whatever item you like, regardless of the version of Minecraft you play on your device!
*Of course, with sleep breaks. For ghosts’ sake.
PLAY WITH DECORATED MINECRAFT BATS POTS’ STORAGE FUNCTION TODAY!
Make a squeak.
Have you heard that? Something close made a squeaky sound. But let’s get back to the topic at hand: Ornamented Pots!
If you’ve been cleaning for sherds and stockpiling your base’s shelves with ornamented pots ever since the Trails & Tales update, you may now use those pots as piggy banks! or stores of weapons! or holders of hidden wealth! The options are virtually limitless, given the finite number of things available in Minecraft. Those ornamented containers hold precisely one stack.
Fill your adorned pots with objects using a hopper or by right-clicking the pot while holding the object you want to store. The enjoyable part is getting your stuff back: use projectiles or a punch to break your adorned pot; broken pots will release their contents. You can also use a hopper to remove objects from your painted pots if you would rather leave them unpunched!
Now, Mojang Studios is renowned for its fierce competition, and Targeting someone else’s priceless pot with a projectile has a very fulfilling feeling. I believe that this would be an amazing chance to learn a little bit about what other Mojangers are going to put in their pots! I have therefore created a very serious competition: Ahead of the Pots!
Make a squeak.
This time, I was certainly hearing things! Is there a fresh competitor in our league? Alas, brave competitor, it’s too late; the application period has ended, and our judge will be here shortly to declare the winner!
AT THE TOP OF THE POTS
ENTRY 1: POTATOES BAKED
Our Community Manager Gustav has made the momentous and delectable decision to fill his pot after weeks of waiting. potatoes baked!
It only makes sense, since the cooked potato itself serves as a useful container for storage and decoration in real life. I’ll store it in my pot in case we decide to release a Shrimps & Chives upgrade in the future, enabling the recreation of the pinnacle of Swedish cuisine within the game. Is there anyone else who is currently hungry? – Gustav
Me! Is lunchtime here yet?
ENTRY 2: FIRE RESISTANCE SPLASH POTION
That time, I was certain I heard something! Where’s that squeaking coming from, that seems so cute.
One of our system designers, Matthew Gatland, is our second contender. I can support Matthew’s goal of keeping his in-game horses from catching fire, as he is also a huge fan of decorative pots. He is adding Splash Potions of Fire Resistance to his pots for this reason!
“I once unintentionally released lava into the stables while remodeling our Nether Base. That day, a lot of horses passed away. Every room must have a fire resistance potion in a container that is prominently labeled “smash pot in case of emergency” under our new safety requirements. – Gatland, Matthew
Matthew, your horses will appreciate it! Since I adore horses, I will also.
ENTRY 3: TEARS WITH GUST
Enjoyable to gather and even more enjoyable to store in creative pots, Contestant number three is storing horrifying tears in the newly designed pots! However, it isn’t because he wishes to create End crystals or Potions of Regeneration. Nope, Oskar Thysell, our one and only favorite Java Realms writer, is utilizing his pots to convey a message.
“I’m keeping score because I oppose toxic masculinity a great deal!” — Oskar Thysell
I stand with you, Oskar; I too feel extremely attacked by ghasts whenever I travel into the Nether. Gather up those tears!
Squeak! Squeak! Squeak!
Right on! Just in time, our Tops of the Pots judge has arrived. Have you been somewhere? I’ve been searching far and wide for you!
[More squeaks of rage]
Not only may ornamented pots be used as storage, but the game now features a retextured bat! Since they were included in the Pretty Scary Update in 2012 along with witches and zombie villagers, bats have been scuttling throughout the caves in Minecraft.
They have had their artwork updated, so in addition to being less ominous and more in line with the rest of the game, they also have incredibly large bat ears! This retextured passive creature is ideal for Top of the Pots because it is being added to Minecraft right now! Please pardon me while we discuss the outcomes of this extremely important tournament.
Squeak, squeak. Squeak!
I concur entirely. Oskar, Matthew, and Gustav are our joint winners! Congratulations! A wise observation is made by the endearingly retextured bat: it’s not about winning. It involves packing one stack of whatever you choose into your adorned pots and then cracking them open once more!
[Squeaks in concurrence]
Find the new bat in Minecraft: Java Edition and Bedrock Edition, and have fun using adorned pots as storage!
