Minecraft 1.13 introduced Conduits, a super handy beacon-counterpart. This neat utility block offers a complimentary damage radius against hostile mobs. It also gives a new potion effect called Conduit Power, a mixture of water breathing, haste, and night vision.[Read more…]
Minecraft’s Update Aquatic in mid-2018 introduced more advanced fishing mechanics to the once-bland rivers, lakes, and seas of Minecraft. In this guide, I’ll break down everything you need to know about Minecraft fishing.
Just like you might go fishing in real life, fishing in Minecraft starts with an essential tool: a fishing rod.
In order to craft a fishing rod, you’ll need some basic materials: three sticks and two pieces of string. Once you’ve crafted your very own fishing rod, you’re ready to start reeling in fish! (And a pair of worn leather boots every once in a while.)[Read more…]
The player-led economy is a key part of EMC and one of the aspects that drew me to the server in the first place.

The Empire Minecraft Outpost Tour series is written by me, JDHallows, a staff member on Empire Minecraft. I travel out to different outposts throughout the frontier on EMC. While there, I take notes and pictures of these unique players outposts and try to create an informative tour of each one. This tour is based on The Estonan Federation, an outpost founded by 4 players: devon699, wildbeast23, onetoad, and siniypiva. This tour explores The Federation’s remarkable town and castle.
In the last article of the series we covered the Minecraft 1.11.2 Launcher and profiles. Now it’s time to talk about Java.
The problem with the launcher is that it comes bundled with a two-year-old, 32-bit version of Java that can cause all sorts of weirdness and problems! The biggest of these is that it probably doesn’t use as much of your computer’s RAM as possible, so even though you can run Minecraft decently, it doesn’t always work as efficiently and smoothly as it could. In addition, a number of mods only list the latest Java version as compatible. This article will teach you how to install the correct or updated Java version and enable Minecraft to utilize it.
