BUILDING A SUPERHERO BASE Picking a place to build a superhero base is easy: it needs to be hidden, it needs to be easy to get in and out of, and it needs to be big enough to fill with superhero toys! For that reason, we’ve gone with a Batman-style underground cave. Ours is actually a carved-out hill, but you could also move into an existing cave, or create a basement under your mansion or house. If you like, you could even make it an Avengers-style tower! Whatever you pick, the next step is to start filling it with cool superhero items… COMPUTER SURVEILLANCE Superheroes need to know where crime is happening to stop it. You can set up a surveillance system using small paintings to look like video screens! We started by placing a…

the minecraft server guide

WHAT ARE MULTIPLAYER SERVERS? Online servers run heavily modded versions of Minecraft that allow you to play unusual maps or heavily modified mini-games in large multiplayer groups. Connect to one and you’ll be able to play the games they run with potentially hundreds of people from all over the world! On joining a server, you usually enter a “hubworld”, which allows you to select a game by exploring the hub and clicking on it. Watch out for helpful messages and rules that tell you how to act when you’re there. Joining an online server is easy, and you can do it in either the Bedrock or Java Edition. The servers have to match the version you’re playing, though, so pay close attention, otherwise you might find yourself unable to join! ARE THEY FREE? Most multiplayer…

the trading guide

HOW TRADING WORKS Trading has been slightly altered, so first we need to tell you how it works. The important thing is that the basics remain the same – you can swap emeralds with villagers for goods that relate to their profession. Now, however, there are a LOT more professions, and they’re recognised by different insignias and clothing, instead of robe and apron colour. Each villager has 8-10 trade slots, with a number of different trading options per slot. Each trade can be made a set number of times before it gets disabled, and villagers must return to their workstation to regenerate the trade slot. Another new gameplay feature is that the more you make a trade, the more the price will go up due to demand. The Hero of the Village…

item of the month

COLLECTING MUSHROOMS Mushrooms come in two main types: red and brown. At normal size, they’re virtually identical, though there are some small differences. All mushrooms can only grow if the light level is 12 or lower – this can be underground or on the surface. They also grow in huge numbers in the Nether, in some woodland mansions, and in witch huts, where you’ll find one red mushroom in a flower pot. To collect a mushroom, you can break it with an empty hand or any other item to make it drop. It shouldn’t take long! If you encounter or make a huge mushroom, you can get two mushrooms of the matching colour by breaking one of the blocks. USING MUSHROOMS Mushrooms can’t be eaten directly, but they CAN be turned into mushroom…

news round-up

MINECRAFT ON GAME PASS Just as we were going to press last issue, it was officially announced that Minecraft was to be added to the Xbox Game Pass service.
