Minecraft Beginner’s Guide How to Survive Your First Day and Night

By   /   6 years ago

From the last few weeks we all have been hearing about this new sensation, Minecraft.

After playing for a week, I am really getting into Minecraft’s world, crafting some epic stuff. Since this game has launched people are referring to its guides and tutorials because it may look like a simple LEGO world but have a great insight of its own.

This guide will guide you to survive your first day and night in the Minecraft world.

When you enter into the Minecraft world, you are bare handed in broad daylight with no equipment and resources. Gathering resources and crafting them into useful items is the main concern of the game. Now you must plan on how you will spend your night when monsters, creepers, spiders and other creatures come to hunt you.

First of all, you must gather some wood, it is the most basic and useful resource in this world. To do this, just go near a tree and hold Left Mouse Button to begin harvesting lumber. This will eventually make the log drop which you can pick up. Do the same to gather like dozen logs.

Now you have to craft these logs into Lumber and Sticks, Press ‘i’ to open your inventory, now drag the logs into the crafting window to convert it to Lumber, each log will give 4 units of Lumber. Use the other arrangement shown below to make log a Stick.

The second thing you need is coal, but you cannot just mine coal as you did for wood. You need a tool for that; a wooden pickaxe will do it. To make a wooden pickaxe you need a 3×3 crafting table.

To create 3×3 crafting table, arrange four lumbers in crafting table to form a workbench. Now move the crafting table to bottom line of your inventory and use scroll wheel to equip it, now place it into the world by right clicking it (can be picked back by left clicking it). Right click the crafting table to get a larger grid.

Make some axes also to chop down trees more easily and quickly. Make the wooden pickaxe by making the following arrangement of sticks and lumber. A pickaxe can cut through rocks and harvest certain ores. Equip pickaxe and start harvesting coal.

Coal is found as black cracks on rock cubes. Now just start left clicking to gather it. You should also gather some rocks along with coal.
