David and Toby give us a rundown on this week's Minecrafty goodness, including the elusive "Minecraft Realms" feature, currently in testing!
So wait, what is Minecraft Realms? It appears to be an in-development alternative to server hosting, where users will be able to start a server up at the push of an in-game button, and invite their friends to play, all from within the game. I have had a chance to test this out myself, and so far, it has been very easy to understand and use! A very promising feature indeed.
Youtuber BebopVox has also compiled a list of currently known features about Minecraft Realms:
Mojang hosted servers through a company like Amazon or Multiplay
Currently free for 100 people during Beta
Passes were given out randomly to help test
Looking to charge in the future, unknown price for how much time
DanFrisk from Mojang leading the project
Currently no permissions for op/mod etc... as a host.
Overall keeping it simple to play with friends, 1 click play.
If invited, you cannot make a server, only those 100 people can
currently, only 100 players were invited to test this feature, and they can invite whoever they like to their Realm servers. However, even if invited, those players do not gain the ability to make a Realm server of their own. Not just yet, that is
Currently only 1 server can be made at a time if hosting

What are site credits?
They are kind of like virtual currency! But you cant really spend them on anything, its a way to keep score and track of everyone on the site. The more you use things and click links the more credits you get, and the higher up on top scores list you go.
