      • Add a PlayStation 3 Edition to Explorer

        Since Mojang has released a PlayStation 3 Edition of Minecraft, it would be amazing if 57Digital released a PlayStation 3 part to the app along with the current Xbox edition.

          Hi there,

          This is something that we’re going to integrate into Explorer as soon as we can, but there’s likely to be a bit of a delay, since we’re going to need to rewrite the way we add content to the app in order to support all the upcoming versions of Minecraft (PS3, PS4, Xbox One, PS Vita, etc.)

          For now, if you need any information, read the Xbox 360 section since they are essentially the same at the moment! If anything is added which is unique to the PS3 version, we’ll let everyone know in the app.

          -57Digital

        • Make blank versions of blocks/mobs, so that we can color them in.

          Each block skin could be blank, except for very faint lines to show the pixels. If anyone wanted a totally blank copy, they could just turn the paper over. It's a lot of fun to color in the blocks in your own way.

          Coloringbookcraft!

                  • Review grammar throughout the app and add the levels on which ores are most common

                    I have noticed several grammatical errors while using the app and I would very much like for it to be fixed in the next update. I am also disappointed this app doesn't include the "y" level on which each ore is most common. I always have to go to the wiki page for this and would like to have everything in one place. This app truly is wonderful, I just thought these things would make it better. Thanks! <3

                      Hi Devin,

                      We strive to have as few errors as possible within Minecraft Explorer, but since there are so many items/blocks/etc., some (particularly ones that have been in the game a long time) were written and haven’t been checked for mistakes since then by our grammar expert Content Producer! As you can imagine, to go through every page would take a long time!

                      As for the ore depths, that is a somewhat glaring omission that we will try and resolve as soon as we can! Thanks again!

                    • Color Wheel

                      By a color wheel I mean something that is easier to pick colors for skinning than what we have now. Currently the only way to change the colors so that they flow nicely requires lots of skill and effort. It is also hard to change the hue of a skin because of the rather general layout of the color scheme. If you need a better picture of what I'm talking about, google MCskin3D (only available for PC, not Mac). Thanks for your time!

                      • 3-D Items

                        So I was thinking, when I looked at the preview of the PDF for a diamond I was about to print out, I noticed that if I were to fold it, it wouldn't be three dimensional, like it is in current Minecraft PC. So I was wondering if you guys could possibly make it so that the items are like one "pixel" thick, but I'm not sure if it be easy though. I don't know, you guys at 57Digital seem pretty smart, so you could probably figure something out.

                            • Redstone

                              Under the tools section of the app, I think it would be awesome if there was a Redstone option, that includes traps, Coll things you can do with redstone, etc. A lot of people would like to see this on the app so they can build their own traps, etc. Please think about putting this on Minecraft Explorer.

                                  • Render a nice picture of you're skin with customizable background

                                    as said.
                                    i'm dreaming of such a function e.g. for the new 3D preview.
                                    loading own background or use one from the gallery (skin studio will come fully equipped with some awesome examples) or choose one from the community picks.
                                    yeah, awesome
