A very warm welcome to Minecraft World magazine! We’ve been escaping the winter weather by building our own space station – you can see how we did it starting on page 4.

build a space station

MATERIALS The first thing you have to do if you’re building a space station is prepare your materials. We like blocks of iron, which are about as far from wood and stone as Minecraft gets. Quartz-based blocks are also quite clean and futuristic-looking, especially the chiselled quartz block, which has a circuitry-like pattern on it. Where you’re able to choose, try to go with iron materials instead of alternatives, especially in things like pressure plates and doors. If you have to go with coloured blocks, concrete gives an even appearance that looks a little like plastic. Glass should feature heavily, but make sure you keep away from naturally derived blocks like wool! DECORATION When it comes to making the build look good, you can decorate in lots of ways. Perhaps the most futuristic look…

mastering compost

WHAT IS COMPOST? In real life, compost is a mixture of rotting plant material that you can use as fertiliser. Bleurgh! In Minecraft, it’s similar, although there’s no compost item – instead, you use a composter block to make bone meal (which performs a similar function in the game). When you have bone meal, you can use it on a plant to create a number of effects. We’ll talk about those later on. COMPOSTERS So composters allow you to turn old plant material into bone meal, but what does that mean? You can use them to recycle unwanted food, crops and various kinds of plant material with only a few exceptions. Each time you add some material to a composter, it has a small chance of raising its level, and when you fill eight…

wither storm add-on

WHAT IS THE WITHER STORM? Invented purely for Minecraft: Story Mode, the wither storm is a giant, out-of-control wither with huge tentacles and bright purple lasers that shoot from its face. It is, in short, terrifying. The wither storm has never been officially available in Minecraft. However, if you’re playing a version of the Bedrock Edition that supports add-ons, there IS a way you can install it using an add-on. DOWNLOADING THE ADD-ON First, you need to download the add-on pack from: https://mcpedl.com/wither-storm-add-on Two versions can be downloaded on that page: one red, one purple. We’re going for the purple version. Click on the link and follow the download instructions. Remember to click “deny” or “cancel” on any pop-ups that aren’t the download. You may have to disable your ad blocker to get it. If…

hunting guide: foxes

ABOUT FOXES Foxes are passive mobs that spawn in taiga, giant tree taiga and snowy taiga biomes in groups of 2-4. They’re nocturnal, meaning they sleep during the day and are active at night, at which point they move into any nearby villages to look for food. Foxes have 10 health points on the Java Edition and 20 on the Bedrock Edition Foxes that don’t trust you will pounce on chickens, rabbits, cod salmon, tropical fish and baby turtles, causing two points of damage. Those that trust he player will only attack mobs hat attack the player. Foxes that spawn in the snowy biome are entirely white, but otherwise identical to the standard orange fox FOX BEHAVIOUR Foxes will automatically run from players and wolves that approach them, unless they’re sneaking. If you get close…
