C418's skin

  • As of November 15, 2013, 29 tracks have been added to Minecraft.
  • Many sounds that C418 has used can be found at freesound.org (for example the walking sounds can be found here.)
  • His Minecraft skin is the default skin, but the head is replaced with the texture for a jukebox.
    • Like Mojang employees, his in-game character can also be seen wearing a Mojang cape.
  • C418 revealed in an AMA on Reddit that the ghast sounds are taken from his pet cat when he is disturbed while sleeping.[4] He was also going to have his cat voice ocelots, but since his cat never meows clearly, C418 decided to use cat sounds from Freesound instead.[5][6][7][8][9]
