What is Steampunk?

In case you didn’t know, steampunk is a genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery, as well as other elements such as clockwork and gears. It’s a really cool style, and it looks great in Minecraft.

If you’re still not sure what steampunk is, then just take a look at the following builds. You’ll quickly see what all the fuss is about.

This is a build of a steampunk glider. Here’s what the builder has to say about this one: “I am super happy with this, mainly because I have tried and failed this build twice since starting. I think my knowledge of the tools and style has grown enough to make a halfway decent glider.”
