MoreCraft Minecraft

Minecraft minecraft, minecraft minecraft mine mine craft craft? Minecraft minecraft minecraft.... minecraft minecraft?!!!!

Have i gone minecraft insane? possibly- anyways i guess minecraft is what people are interested in right now so i thought id share a little bit of my save and some tips for those of you just starting-

Keep making a new save untill you get an interesting map! i settled on a snow map(snowballs are so fun!) with some cool looking hills.

First off- whenever you make a new save- go for stone tools! wood is a waste of time when cobblestone is so easy to get. What youll need: 4 blocks of wood. make some planks into a combo box, and then make a wooden pick- with this you can mine cobblestone and make stone tools this saves a bunch of time, and using wood tools seem completely pointless. Another note- never make gold tools, they are as bad as wood in terms of durability. Gold armor is just as terrible, but if you have a bunch feel free to make it- i havent found any use for gold yet so im just storing it in blocks for now- i hear its used as currency in multiplayer.


Your first house!  Build it in a tree! because why not! get a bit more wood- make a few ladder pieces, find a big tree- and climb up the base- hollow out the inside. this will keep you safe from wondering creepers blowing your house up or skeletons killing you. If you didnt manage to find any torches- you can still seal up your tree house and still see fairly well because leaves are fairly see through.



The first time you spawn in the game- dig a ditch around the block you spawn on- come back and mark it off- build a little hut with extra weapons inside incase you die. If you die in the middle of the night- you will spawn inside your house and be able to collect supplies to go on a corpse run!

Light up the night! Try not to work on your house at night as creepers tend to fall from the sky with little warning :( if you want to work at night put plenty of torches to keep them away

Find an open cave instead of digging one! i happend to come across an endless cave in my save on the other side of a hill from where i built- i havent found an end to this cave in over a week and a half- i have found at least 2 dozen diamond spawns, 7-8 spawner rooms and all the redstone and iron i could use!

Well thats what i have for tips, here are some pictures of my save- hopefully ill have a video soon.



This first one is of my waterslide im working on- your boat will actually fly through the air from falling watter





These next are from my awesome tree house- i grew more trees and am currently expanding it





Make an aquarium! this is probably one of my favorites- this pool will suck everything into it- and generally has bacon waiting in the bottom for me to collect- you can also trap a bunch of zombies in it :D



lastly- record players! you can get records by making a skeleton kill a creeper- just run them around untill they stand in front of each other and they will duke it out! youll be rewarded with a record that plays some fun music in your house




hope you enjoyed! video of my water ride to come soon!

  3. i kind of thought that myself when people explained it too me, mostly because i didn't want to get addicted to it- but yeah its kind of just to waste time, but you will see after about 15minutes how awesome this game is- you cant really explain why its so awesome, its just incredibly fun to play.

    Its only $10 while its in beta so buy soon! its definitely worth the investment ten fold

  25. my cousin just showed me this game, now I have to try it, thanks for this

  26. Haha yeah man, minecraft is like the new runescape for me, but better. How do you find a tree big enough to live in? That's crazy. Unless you mean like hollowing out the leaves and setting up base there. That's actually a good idea, make a continual tree base highway haha.

    I'm going to have a water elevator as an alternate route from my first outpost to the sealab. Shit's gonna be so cash.

    I love your tree house by the way, it looks very welcoming and warm.

    Haha poor pig. Can you post a guide on how you make those mob drowners? The first one I made failed miserably. At night I would go into my tiny hut, close the door and I would wait. The ceiling to my hut was glass and it was filled with water and extended up. It easily caught a few spiders and zombies but I couldn't quiet figure out the best method of drowning them and even when they did die the current didn't exactly carry it to my collection point.

    Damn I really want some records to play haha. Okay, I think I've typed too much, good luck.
