Detail craft tips

Placing a birch pressure plate on an item frame completely covers it, making only the item visible.

You can use end rods as a perch for your parrots!

Put a hopper minecart underneath it to make it functional!

If u are ever making a mini scale house you can put a door in an item frame and put 2 snow layers to make it look the like a house with a little spruce door.

Travel and Explore

Staying at the same place as your shelter will get boring in a few days. Minecraft’s map is roughly 7 times that of our planet Earth and should be explored as much as possible. There are different landforms/biomes in the game namely:

  • Plain
  • Forest
  • Beach
  • Snow
  • Desert All have their own composition of rocks and animals and, changing where you have your shelter will keep the game fresh for you. A small tip for beginners is to keep a portable shelter in your inventory which should include enough blocks, a door, a bed, and a pair of the torch.

Locate nearby Villages

The game might seem lonely at times with you only being the one with brains, but thankfully the creators of the game have made villages that spawn randomly on your map. These villages have villagers and they can actually be of some great use if you learn the trading system in the game properly. Here is a brief description of the types of Villagers and what you can expect as the deal that they would offer to you.

  • Farmer – Will trade Emeralds for a crop (wheat, potato, carrot, beetroot)
  • Cartographer – Will trade a map for Emeralds
  • Librarian – Will trade an enchanted book for Emeralds and a book
  • Fisherman – Will trade Emeralds for Bread
  • Leatherworker – Will trade amour for Emeralds
  • Weaponsmith – Will trade weapons(sword) for emeralds Now, remember that the deals and types of villagers to be found in a village is completely random so travelling to a new village every time is a great strategy. Also, villages have chests inside their houses which can be looted for some useful items.

Craft a Torch and a Door

These two don’t really have a necessity to be crafted but having them helps a lot to improve and smoothen your shelter. To craft a Torch, mine coal (minimum 1) and a stick. Fuse them together in the crafting table to make a torch. This will help you to see in dark places while you’re mining or inside your shelter to lighten it up In order to craft a Door, take 6 wooden planks and fuse them column-wise in the crafting table, this will remove the problem of breaking your shelter’s wall every day.

Keep Mining

As the name of the game goes, mining is your primary profession and the game is filled with many precious materials to explore and caves to conquer. Some of these useful materials in the sequence of rarity are:

  • Stone
  • Coal
  • Iron
  • Emerald
  • Obsidian
  • Lapis Lazuli
  • Redstone
  • Gold
  • Diamond The perfect way to begin mining is to simply start digging nearby in a stepwise manner for easy exit and entry. Now to acquire these materials and reduce the time to dig, one needs to craft a Pickaxe. To craft a wodden pickaxe,(there are other types of pickaxe too but one should not care about them at the moment)you need 3 wood planks and 2 Sticks. To craft a stick simply put two wodden planks together to acquire 4 of them.

Craft a Bed

As George R. R. Martin said, “The night is dark and full of terrors“. When the sun sets, the mobs which are creatures that would kill you if you’re seen by them, come out. The common ones are:

  • Zombie
  • Skeleton
  • Spider
  • Creeper
  • Enderman There are many other types of mobs too but for now, just remember that you need to stay away from them. Crafting a bed enables you to fall asleep at night and skip it. To craft a bed, you need wool. The only way of getting wool is by killing a sheep that can be found nearby. Kill 3 sheep to acquire 3 wool and 3 wood planks of any type if you don’t have them already. Open the crafting table and you’ll see a 3×3 grid where you need to add three wool and three planks in a row to craft a bed. Once crafted, select the bed from your inventory and place it inside your shelter.

Hunt for Food

Food is the most important factor for your survival as this will help you replenish your health and will make sure you can run. A small meter alongside your health bar is the hunger meter. If empty, it will affect your health and sprint speed. To make sure you are active and healthy you need to hunt for food. There are many animals in the game which are harmless and can be hunted for meat. Like

  • Sheep
  • Cow
  • Pig
  • Chicken There are ways to stay vegan too by staying alive on apples that can be found on trees or bread that can be stolen from chests in nearby villages (explained at Step 9).
