top tips for brilliant halloween builds

PUT IN SPOOKY PAINTINGS There are 26 paintings in Minecraft that you can use to make any room look creepy! We like the burning skull for giving an air of terror, but lots of them have SOMETHING to make the onlooker uneasy. Watch out for pics of the wither, or the creeper poking its head above a windowsill, to frighten people. If you want the painting to serve a purpose too, remember you can use them to cover doors to create a secret entrance! ADD SOME BATS Normally you’ll only find bats underground, but you can use a bat spawn egg to place them around any build, even above ground. If you’re feeling really clever, rig up a command block to spawn bats at specific intervals, then even if they fly away, a…

fireworks guide

CRAFTING AROCKET Minecraft’s fireworks combine two parts: a rocket and a firework star, which you craft separately. Firework rockets are crafted in groups of three, and you can add 0-7 firework stars to each group of rockets. When placed (by a player or a dispenser), a firework will shoot up into the air and explode after a few seconds. To create the simplest firework rockets, you only need to craft one piece of paper with one piece of gunpowder. Because these rockets have no firework star, they have no visible effects when they explode, though they ARE still useful – more on how later! However, while you need only one piece of gunpowder to craft a rocket, they can contain one, two or three pieces – the more gunpowder you add, the higher the…

CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS Want to make sure you’ve got some stockings pinned up for Santa? Banners are the perfect way to give that impression! To make a red Christmas stocking, use a loom to apply the following patterns to a base-coloured banner in this order: ▪ Vertical left half (per pale) with red dye ▪ Top left corner (chief dexter canton) with white dye ▪ Bottom stripe (base) with red dye This will create a red “L” shaped stocking with a white cuff at the top, which you can pin up to await a haul of goodies! SNOWMAN Minecraft’s snow golems look great if you use shears to remove their pumpkin masks, but what if you want a snowman that DOESN’T wander off? We’ve built ours using white concrete blocks with a carved pumpkin head for the face,…

item of the month

ABOUT INK SACS Ink sacs are dropped by squid when they die, and can be used in a number of recipes. They stack in groups of 64 and are considered renewable, because squid will constantly respawn in an area. Their primary use is in the creation of dye, but they can be used for other things too! GETTING INK SACS The easiest way to get an ink sac is to kill a squid. When killed, a squid will-drop 1-4 ink sacs, which will float to the surface of the water if left uncollected. It’s possible to collect 10 ink sacs as a junk item when fishing, however this is by far the rarest item you can collect–just 0.1% of all catches will be a stack of ink sacs, or one in 1000. If you…
