Ho, ho, ho! A very warm welcome to the Christmas edition of Minecraft World magazine! Whether you’re a regular reader or joining us for the first time, we’ve got a lot of Minecraft business to get through! As well as our festive celebrations – and we’ve not forgotten New Year’s resolutions! – we’ve been looking at building a brilliant house in our favourite game. Do you think YOU can do better? House builds are serious fun, and we want to see YOUR creations!

building an epic house

OUTSIDE To build your house, you have to start by planning the exterior. Remember, the blocks in Minecraft are very thick, so they make your buildings look bigger than you think – the inside will be a lot smaller once An you start building it up! Think about the rooms you want inside your house. The easiest way to start is to flatten the ground then draw a blueprint using bricks (or whatever you want to make your walls out of) so you can imagine the layout it will have when it’s built. After that, you can fill in the walls, leaving space for windows and doors. When laying out your house, remember to build it in an “L” or “H” shape rather than a giant square – this can help you understand…

adding secrets to your house

SECRET PASSAGE There are many ways you can create a secret passage in your house! Depending on how and where you’ve put your fireplace, it’s possible to create a secret passage behind it. To do this, you just have to make the fireplace a little deeper than usual, then use a simple redstone mechanism to turn the fire on and off. There are several ways you can do this, but one simple way is to use sticky pistons (attached to the Netherrack blocks from below) that lower the fire so you can hop over it. Remember, the pistons are extended while powered, so you actually have to turn them OFF to lower them. If that seems difficult, you could create a secret passage in the wall using bookshelves to hide the “door”. The hardest…

1 COMPLETE SURVIVAL MODE BY KILLING THE ENDER DRAGON Haven’t you been putting THIS one off for long enough? If you’ve never beaten Survival mode and killed the ender dragon, this is the year to do it. The process is the same as ever: find a stronghold, activate its portal, then prepare for the fight of your life! But here’s a secret: it’s much, much easier to beat the dragon if you go in as a group. Take lots of healing potions, lots of arrows, and lots of weapons and armour. It’s not impossible to do alone, but try to get a group of three or so to make things easy on yourself! 2 COLLECT EVERY MUSIC DISC There are 12 music discs in Minecraft, but only two of them can be found…

news round-up

GET READY FOR PILLAGERS! Mojang has been testing new additions for Minecraft via beta versions of the game again. Beta versions are test builds of the game that we’re allowed access to. As such, the trade-off is we get new features early, but the game may be a bit unstable. Anything deemed a success in beta form tends to make it to the full game over time. So, let’s introduce the pillagers! They’ve been added to the beta version of Minecraft that you can now play on Xbox One, Windows 10 and Android versions of the game. Pillagers are variants of illagers that had been previously announced for the game. Be warned, though, as these pesky mobs have a nasty habit of raiding villages! You can find out more about them at tinyurl.com/MinecraftBetas MORE…

minecraft christmas decorations

CHRISTMAS TREE What’s Christmas without a tree? Disappointing, that’s what! None of Minecraft’s trees are especially suitable for Christmas, but that doesn’t mean you’re completely out of luck! The way to start is with a single spruce sapling. Plant it in the ground and then grow it with bonemeal (or just wait around until it grows naturally). The shape of the tree – wide leaves at the bottom rising to a point – sort of resembles a Christmas fir. You can pad out the shape with additional leaves to accentuate this fairly easily until you have something that looks right. Once you’ve done that, the next step is to decorate it! You can choose any number of ways to add colour and ornaments to your tree, but we’ve used stained glass blocks as…
