build a holiday park

CHOOSING A SITE To start building your park, first you have to choose a good site. We recommend looking for these criteria: A temperate biome Not too hot, not too cold, grass plains (or similar) is our recommendation for where to build a holiday park. You can choose any one you like, of course, but try to make sure it’s flat and relatively clear, with lots of ground. Swamps and jungles are probably not the best choice… Next to the ocean What says holiday more than open water? Whether you’re admiring the view or hoping to enjoy time at a beach resort, placing your holiday park next to the sea is a great way to give it that summertime feel. Far from threats Don’t build a holiday park next to a lava lake or a cave that…

brewing guide

BREWING EQUIPMENT To start brewing, you need to either craft a brewing stand (using a blaze rod and three cobblestone blocks) or collect one. The easiest place to do this is from the basement of an igloo, where you’ll also find a splash Potion of Weakness! As well as a brewing stand, you’ll need several glass bottles (craft three bottles from three glass blocks), a water source so you can fill the bottles with water, and some blaze powder to activate the brewing process. That’s just to get started, though – remember, you also need your potion ingredients! Here’s a list of everything you can add to a potion: Nether wart, gunpowder, spider eye, ghast tear, rabbit foot, blaze powder, glistering melon, sugar, magma cream, redstone, glowstone dust, fermented spider eye, phantom membrane, turtle…

updated combat guide

SWORDS The most common combat weapon, and definitely the easiest to use for melee (close-up) fights! You can craft a sword from one stick and two wooden planks, two cobblestone, two iron ingots, two gold ingots, or two diamonds. You can also collect swords as drops from mobs, by trading with a weaponsmith, or as loot from chests (most easily weaponsmith chests!). The weakest swords are golden ones. They do four points of damage and have 33 durability, but they’re more likely to receive high-level enchantments than the others! Wooden swords also inflict four points of damage per hit, but have a durability of 60. Stone swords do five points of damage, with 132 durability. Iron swords do six points of damage, with 251 durability. And finally, diamond swords do seven points of damage per hit…

item of the month

COLLECTING SADDLES Saddles are uncraftable, so there’s no way to make your own. Luckily, there are TONNES of ways to collect them! For a start, they generate in chests as loot. Stronghold altars, weaponsmith, dungeon, savanna village, Nether fortress, jungle temple, desert temple, End city and tannery chests all have a chance to contain a saddle. You can also collect them as treasure when fishing, or buy them from a leatherworker villager. Mobs with a saddle on will always drop it when they die, and this applies to ravagers that generate with a saddle on as part of a village raid. USING SADDLES Saddles can be placed on four rideable mobs: pigs, horses, mules and donkeys. They can’t be placed on llamas – instead, llamas use carpet as their “saddle”. To place a saddle on a…

news round-up

MINECRAFT EARTH BETA TESTING UNDER WAY! Perhaps the biggest news in the world of Minecraft over the past month or two has been the announcement of Minecraft Earth. This is a new augmented reality game, a bit like Pokémon GO, where you use your smartphone to basically help bring Minecraft into the real world! It’s already been confirmed that the game will be free to play, and available for iOS and Android devices. What’s more, official beta testing is now under way, Mojang has confirmed, in five different cities around the world. You had to sign up for the beta to be able to take part, but the very fact that the beta is running at all suggests the release of the game is inching ever closer. The five cities where the game…
