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 skins are one of many ways you can express your creativity in-game. Whether you want to shake up your current look, remove a feature, or go beyond your basic Steve or Alex shell, this guide has you covered!
There are many Minecraft skin design websites, such as Tynker, Novaskin, and The Skindex’s editor. I will teach you the basics of designing skins using my favorite design website, Miners Need Cool Shoes. The basics of skin design include making skins, adding onto skins, or removing parts from skins.[Read more…]
Hooray! The exterior of your build is finished, and now you need some furniture to fill the inside. Of course, Minecraft doesn’t come with prebuilt furniture (unless you’re using a furniture mod). Don’t worry though. There is a wide variety of Minecraft furniture that you can create.
While building, the most important thing to remember is that you can play around with the furniture to find the best fit for your build. Don’t be afraid to change the size, block type, or location of your furniture if it doesn’t look right to you![Read more…]
“To stone slab or not to stone slab, that is the question!” – William Stonespeare
Okay, you caught me. That is not an actual quote or person, but the point stands. Many blocks have slab forms and most of them look exactly the same as their full parent block. However, one slab is different from the rest: the stone slab.
What is this “slab of stone” I speak of?
Just from this picture, you can already tell that the stone slab is the most beautiful block in the game. The sleek design really captures its beauty; the way the light pierces its pixels makes me feel- whoops, sorry. Getting a bit off topic there.
You are able to craft a stone slab by placing three stone blocks together on a crafting table, which produces six stone slabs.
I recommend going 96 blocks up in the air. Why? Simple. You won’t have to deal with slabbing, lighting or flooding the surrounding area for 96 blocks in every direction from the farm’s edges to control the entity count. You should also build this farm 1024 overworld blocks away from any other portal. Unless you understand the mechanics of making a perfect portal match/link. That is beyond the scope of this tutorial. Google it. Point being, don’t build this farm next to your base’s main nether portal. The next time you come through it from the nether, you might wind up inside your gold farm with an army of angry piggies.
