A trio of clever crafts from this new French build team!
BEES! Gaaah, they’re huge and climbing up the walls with their honey-slicked knees!
Ahem, sorry about that. I’m way too absorbed in the beautiful and only slightly terrifying sights of Myrthar – The Bee World. If you head inside this Minecraft build’s many honeycomb fortresses you can even spot tiny bees buzzing around as they create honey. It’s adorable and, er, very sticky. Oh, I can’t seem to get my hand off this wall…
Well, since it looks like I’m stuck here forever, I might as well tell you about the people who created this place. French build team Quantics Build only officially formed in March 2019, with founding members Ariux, Agraïc, Royalfils2, Volcom40, Folos, and Huntos.
In just a few months they’ve expanded their team and already put together an impressive portfolio of brilliant builds. I guess you could say they’ve been busy as a bee, but I’m worried the giant bees surrounding me won’t find that funny, so let’s not.
Myrthar is the result of Quantics Build admiring the complex, hexagonal structures that bees use to shape the inside of their hives. The team claims their building style is “inspired by the physics and architecture that surround us in real life.”
You can see some of that inspiration in Quantics Build’s very first project, PetroCity, an over-industrialised human dystopia. Smoke billows from the chimneys of the factories in this claustrophobic cluster of buildings, and you can almost taste that sweet, sweet pollution.
Further down you can see railways, government buildings, and dams all crammed together. Can you spot the trade ship coming into dock and the cargo truck waiting to enter a warehouse?
Quantics Build explains that rapid industrialisation in PetroCity has fractured its society. The rich are contaminating the atmosphere with their smoggy industries at the top, while “the poor people are restrained to the worst areas, in villages next to polluted water,” Agraïc tells me. “It’s not a big project, but it is incredibly dense.”
Agraïc reckons this is the project Quantics Build has shared the most, mixing everyone’s different styles. But how do they decide what to build in the first place? “Most of the time, decisions are made democratically, as we want all of our members to be able to give their opinion,” Agraïc explains. Once a project has been decided upon, they split up into smaller groups, which means everyone is working on a build they’re passionate about!
This process is how Titus – Return of the Undead came about. It depicts a legendary warrior, Titus, climbing out of his muddy grave, ready to fight again – except time has rotted his flesh away, so now he’s just a skeleton, and whoever heard of a skeleton attacking you in Minecraft? Oh, wait…
But don’t be frightened! After all, deep down we’re all skeletons, right?
This project was led by WazerFighter, a later addition to Quantics Build who mostly specializes in creating organic structures, like creatures, insects, and people. “To build my organics, I mainly use Fast Async WorldEdit and VoxelSniper for the basic shape,” WazerFighter tells me. “I then use Arceon for the details and the cloths. But I’m also working a lot by hand.”
Once the build was complete, render artists Volcom40 and Ariux moved in to give it the finished look you can see now. They helped make the bones of Titus shine a bright white, and if you watch the gif created by Eonli, you’ll see that the light casts playful shadows across the red cape flowing in the wind.

Anybody who has played Minecraft is well aware of how much fun it is. Now there is a site https://www.minecraftnow.com/ that allows you to add your own server to the Minecraft Now – Toplist. This topsite lets you bring in all your friends into the same game! Hence now you play with your own rules and with your own friends. There cannot be more fun in a game that is so addictive!
The only thing better than a single player in Minecraft, is multiplayer. So now you can join your own server to https://www.minecraftnow.com/ topsite to get started. Another option is to search around on the Minecraft Now – Toplist site to get more exclusive ones. But this way you would be ultimately bound by their rules, discretion and so on. Hence adding your own server will let you and your friends play together having your own set of rules. Besides, it is really easy to do so.
Download and First Run
All that you need to do is head to the Minecraft Download page. Now go to the “Multiplater beta server software” section. Here the Windows users may simply download the .exe file and run it. The OS X as well as Linux users will have to download the .jar file, and run their server by using this command in Terminal:
java -Xmx1024M -Xms1024M -jar minecraft_server.jar nogui
You can always decide to devote less or more RAM to your server. This way you can change the 1024M to something like 2048M. Here the first number refers to the maximum amount that it can use while the second number is the minimum that can be used. Everything is in Java here. This means that you must have at least a spare gig of RAM that you can devote to Minecraft. Do note that things do tend to get unruly as there are a large number of people playing. Once you start doing crazy stuff such as blowing up huge caverns making use of massive amounts of TNT and so on, things can get quite unruly.
The memory along with the processor thread use on the left will be visible in the server windows. Here you can also see the list of connected players that is displayed in the lower left. There is the log and chat window displayed on the right side. Do note that when you run the server for the first time on https://www.minecraftnow.com/ , you’ll get some errors. This is quite normal and hence you should not panic!
There will be log errors in case the server is not able to find the configuration files that it needs. But it will make them. This can be easily seen as there will be new files coming up in the same folder just where your server is.
The “world” folder will contain your generated map area, along with an ops list, as well as a server.properties file, besides a number of other things too!
