Minecraft fan? Then you need to check out Planet Minecraft

When Minecraft was released as a public alpha text in 2009, few could possibly have predicted just how successful it would go on to be. The game has gone on to be a poster child for the indie game scene, made it's creator Markus "Notch" Persson a huge amount of money, and inspired a wealth of fan sites, such as Planet Minecraft.

If you're not familiar with Minecraft then you've either been living under a rock for the past few years, or you simply have no interest in video games. Neither one of those is reason enough for you not to give it a try however.

When the game finally got a full release in November 2011, it already had huge communities built up around it, offering players with whom to play levels, create new masterpieces, or just simply chat with about the joys of the game.

Arguably the most successful of those communities has been Planet Minecraft, a website that offers Minecraft players every conceivable asset, tool and support mechanism to enhance their enjoyment of an already wonderful gameplay experience.

Given the nature of Minecraft, it's not surprising that Planet Minecraft has proven to be such a success, since the community is one that prides itself on cooperation and continued improvement of the overall experience.

On Planet Minecraft, you'll be able to find custom levels, skins, textures, engine mods and even blogs and reports from players across the world describing their experiences within the game.

Already the website boasts an impressive 15,200 texture packs, 111,000 levels, 360,000 skins and 3,500 mods for the community to enjoy.

As a free service, Planet Minecraft is far and away the best resource available out there for hardcore Minecraft players and newcomers alike. It has a friendly atmosphere which is very welcoming to beginners, and doesn't suffer from the same kind of elitism that plagues many other online communities.
