FAQ And Guide Xbox 360

MINECRAFT: XBOX 360 EDITION
A FAQ/Guide by Homsarrunner3



INTRODUCTION:

Hello, and welcome to my FAQ/Guide for Minecraft: Xbox 360 
Edition. The goal of this guide is to provide information on 
how to survive and thrive in the wonderful randomly-generated 
world of Minecraft! In this guide, you will find a general 
guide to surviving your first night, getting a good mine 
started, and gathering the resources you need to, well, do 
whatever you want. One thing to keep in mind though, is that 
the game you play will not be the same as the one I play. 
Whenever you start a new game in Minecraft, you receive your 
own randomly-generated world, with completely unique 
topographical features. Randomness is not a guide-writer's 
friend, so I must let you know that this guide will not and 
cannot hold your hand through every problem you have, simply 
because I cannot anticipate what is going to happen in your 
world.

Now, without further ado: The guide.

VERSION HISTORY:
v1.0: 7/4/12 First version of the guide completed and uploaded 
to gamefaqs.com
v1.1: 7/15/12 Of course, right after I post the first version, 
they update the game. Anyway, added in information about the 
update, skins, and an infinite cobblestone cheat. Added 
credits section and slightly altered Legal section.
v1.2: 7/29/12 Tiny little update. I was feeling ambitious, 
so I added a section on the skins. Also fixed a couple of typing 
errors.

TABLE OF CONTENTS:

For the sake of saving you time, this guide uses a text-based 
search system. Here's how it works:
1. Find the section you want to go to in this table.
2. Copy the code next to it (including the brackets)
3. Press CTRL-F on your keyboard to open the search submenu
4. Paste the code into the searchbar.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS [MINEFAQ]

Q: What is Minecraft?
A: Ah, our first cliche "Nobody would actually ask this." 
question. *cough* Minecraft is an indie sandbox 
survival/construction game designed by Mojang, originally 
released on the PC in late November 2011 as a Java game. As 
the name implies, the basis of the game is to Mine (break down 
blocks around you) and Craft (turn them into tools to help 
you mine a wider variety of blocks, as well as structures to 
live in). The Xbox 360 Edition was released on May 9th, 2012 
for download as an Xbox LIVE Arcade game.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: The Xbox 360 Edition costs 1600 Microsoft Points, which 
translates to $19.99 U.S. and 19.20 U.K. (My computer doesn't 
have U.K. currency symbols, sorry)

Q: What's different in the 360 Edition?
A: Besides the new control scheme, the Xbox 360 Edition is 
largely the same as the PC version of Minecraft, with a few 
changes. The most major change is the overhaul to the crafting 
system. In the PC version, players need to discover crafting 
formulas on their own by placing materials in a crafting grid, 
with no instruction for how to make a certain object. In the 
Xbox Edition, all of the crafting formulas are already given 
to you. All you have to do is find the proper materials, 
highlight the object you want to make, and press a button. 
In addition, there is a Tutorial in this version of the game 
for teaching new players the basics. There is split-screen 
Co-op multiplayer for up to 4 players (but only if you have 
an HDTV), and online Co-op (including voice chat) for up to 
8. As always, an Xbox LIVE Gold membership is required to play 
online. Finally, the Xbox 360 version's graphics and general 
gameplay mechanics are on par with those of the original 
release of Minecraft, and does not include the many updates 
the PC version enjoys.

Q: Wait, so this isn't the full version of the game? Lame.
A: Hey, I never said that! The developers are planning to 
update the game often, so that it will eventually be caught 
up to the PC version.

Q: Oh, alright then. Any word on DLC?
A: Yes, actually. The 1st Skin Pack DLC was released in July 
2012. It costs 180 Microsoft Points (2 U.S. dollars) and 
contains skins of characters from licensed games, as well as 
generic characters. A free version of the skin pack was also 
released, containing only the generic skins. In addition, in 
the Summer of Arcade sale in 2012, a pack of free skins was 
released, featuring characters in the games of the SOA sale.

Q: I heard that this version is harder than the PC version. 
Is that true?
A: I'm not sure, really. Many people I've spoken to have said 
that the spawn rate for monsters in this version is higher 
than the PC version, but that could just be bad luck.

Q: What if I don't want to deal with monsters, and just want 
to mine and craft at my leisure?
A: Every time you go to load a world (save file), you have 
the option to adjust the difficulty slider (unlike in the PC 
version, where you can do this from the pause menu). The slider 
has 4 settings: Peaceful, Easy, Normal, and Hard. On Easy, 
Normal, and Hard, monsters spawn at night and in darkened 
areas, and do more damage according to how high the difficulty 
is. On Peaceful difficulty, monsters will never spawn 
(besides animals, and those won't attack you) and health that 
you lose from fall damage, drowning, catching on fire, etc. 
is restored over time. HOWEVER, you can still die on Peaceful 
if you're really stupid about falling into lava or things like 
that. Also, never having monsters spawn prevents you from 
gathering materials that are necessary for several crafting 
creations, most importantly bones, gunpowder, and strings.

Q: When I create a new world, the game asks me for a "seed". 
What do I do?
A: A "seed" is a custom phrase that the game uses to create 
a word. Though there are some seeds out there custom-made by 
the developers to create awesome worlds, feel free to type 
in your own phrase (like, say, your name), and see how the 
game interprets it! Or, if you prefer, you can leave the seed 
box blank, and the game will generate a random seed for you. 


CONTROLS [MINECTRL]

Left Stick: Tilt to walk/, click to change camera angle.
Right Stick: Tilt to look around, click to crouch. Crouching 
prevents you from falling off edges (unless you jump).
RT: Hold down to mine the block in front of you, or attack 
monsters or animals.
LT: Alternative action: This changes depending on your 
situation, and is used to do everything from opening doors 
to eating food to firing arrows from your bow to placing down 
blocks you are carrying.
RB/LB: Scroll right/left along your hotkey bar.
Start: Enter the pause menu. Note: This will not actually 
pause the game.
Select: Access the list of players in your world in 
multiplayer. From here you can view others' Gamertags, or, 
if you are player 1 in this world, kick unwanted players out 
of the game.
Home: Open the Xbox 360 Home menu. This will not pause the 
game.
A: Jump.
B: Drop your equipped item. If you are carrying a stack of 
items, this will only drop one.
Y: Open your inventory. From here, you can rearrange the items 
you are carrying, assign items to your hotkey bar (you can 
only use items assigned to this bar), and equip armor. Opening 
this menu will not pause the game.
X: Open the Handcrafting menu. Crafting is the bread and 
butter of Minecraft, but this particular menu will become 
basically obsolete when you craft a workbench. See the 
"Crafting and Furnace-ing" section for how to use the 
handcrafting and workbench crafting menus. Opening this menu 
does not pause the game.


BASICS [MINEBAS]

Day and Night:

Minecraft employs a day/night cycle to show the passage of 
time. Each day consists of 10 minutes of broad daylight, a 
90 second sunset, a 7-minute night, and finally a 90-second 
sunrise. During those 7 minutes of night (which feels like 
much, much longer), there is enough darkness to allow monsters 
to spawn outside, and if you're not safely in your home, you 
run the risk of bumping into some seriously nasty critters. 
See below for more on monsters and their spawning. The only 
weapon you have against the night is a bed, crafted from wooden 
planks and wool. Fall asleep in a bed, and time will progress 
to just after sunrise the next morning. Monsters can no longer 
spawn on the surface, and many of the monsters left over from 
last night will burn to death in direct daylight. Good 
riddance.

Health, healing, and death:

This is pretty important. Those 10 red hearts at the bottom 
left of your screen represent your health. If it hits zero, 
you're dead. If you die, you will reappear with full health 
at your original spawn point (the place you were when you began 
your game). Nothing in the world has changed, except for the 
tiny fact that you dropped EVERYTHING you were carrying. You 
now have 5 minutes to hoof it back to the place you died and 
grab all your stuff before it disappears forever. Harsh? 
Maybe. But that just makes it all the more important that you 
DON'T let your health hit zero. You lose health by getting 
attacked by monsters (or other players, in the instance that 
you have scumbag friends), drowning (When you're underwater, 
a line of 10 bubbles appears above your health bar. This is 
your air meter. If it hits zero, you start losing health 
rapidly. Surface to replenish it.), stepping in lava, 
catching on fire (which quite often follows the lava 
stepping), falling from a height of over 3 blocks, getting 
buried by blocks that follow gravity (sand and gravel), and 
touching a cactus. It's a dangerous world, huh? Health is 
replenished by eating food, and there are many types:

Raw Porkchop: Dropped by dead pigs.
Cooked Porkchop: Cook a raw porkchop in a furnace. Dropped 
by dead Zombie Pigmen.
Bread: Made from 3 wheat.
Cake: Made from 3 wheat, 3 buckets of milk, 2 sugar, and 1 
egg. Cakes function differently from other food in that you 
place them down like a block, and then by pressing RT on them, 
you eat a slice. There are six slices in each cake.
Raw Fish: Catch with a fishing rod in any body of water.
Cooked Fish: Cook a raw fish in a furnace.
Cookie: Made from 2 wheat and 1 cocoa bean. Cocoa beans are 
only found in treasure chests in dungeons.
Mushroom Stew: Made from 1 bowl, 1 red mushroom, and 1 brown 
mushroom. After you eat it, you recover the bowl.
Apple: Found in treasure chests near monster spawners.

Oh, yeah, and when you sleep successfully in a bed, your spawn 
position is set to the location of that bed, so that's where 
you'll respawn if you die. Handy! Sadly, sleeping does not 
restore your health.

Monsters:

Behind every great game is a cast of wonderfully nasty 
villains, and Minecraft is no exception. In this game, light 
is life and darkness is death, literally. You see, every area 
in Minecraft is lit up to a certain degree. This degree of 
light is measured by an invisible counter that goes from 0 
(darkest) to 15 (brightest). Monsters can spawn in light level 
7 and below. Here's a list of all light sources and their light 
levels.

The Sun: 15
Fire (from burning blocks or Netherrack): 15
Jack-O-Lantern: 15
Lava: 15
Glowstone block: 15
Torch: 14
Active Furnace: 13
The Sun with rain: 12
Nether Portal: 11
Redstone Torch: 7
The Moon: 4
(For light sources that are placed (Fire, Jack-O-Lantern, 
lava, glowstone, torch, furnace, nether portal, redstone 
torch), the light level decreases by 1 for every block away 
from the source.)

The three exceptions to this rule are Slimes, Ghasts and 
Zombie Pigmen. Ghasts and Zombie Pigmen only spawn in The 
Nether, and will spawn no matter what the light level is. 
Slimes only spawn very deep underground, and they are 
incredibly rare. Also, animals are TECHNICALLY classified as 
monsters, but they can spawn in any light level (but not 
underground).
Here is a list of all the monsters and animals in the game, 
with general information on each:

Zombies:
The original brain-munching walking corpse is the most basic 
monster in Minecraft, and can be classified by their 
human-like shape and constant moans and gurgles. They attack 
by walking into you and (inexplicably) drop feathers on death. 
Zombies burn in direct sunlight, unless they are underwater.

Skeletons:
My personal most hated and feared monster in the game, 
Skeletons make a distinctive bone-rattling sound when they 
are nearby. The other sound they make is the *twang* of arrows 
flying out of their bowstrings and right towards your head. 
That's right, Skeletons are the ranged specialists of 
Minecraft's monster lineup, and they have deadeye aim. It's 
difficult to even get close enough to smack these suckers 
without taking a couple hits. And if you meet one in the 
cramped quarters of an underground cave? Yikes, good luck with 
that. They drop arrows and bones when they die. Thankfully, 
they burn in direct sunlight, unless they are underwater.

Creepers:
The official mascot of Minecraft, Creepers have a very odd 
attack pattern. They make absolutely no noise until they get 
very close to you. Then, they start flashing white and letting 
out a hissing noise. If you haven't already seen it coming, 
it's already too late to turn around and fight it, because 
that hiss means it's about to explode. When a Creeper 
explodes, it not only hurts you A LOT (It can 1-hit kill you 
if it's right next to you when it blows), it also rips up all 
the blocks around it, breaking them down as if you had mined 
them all. Now just imagine you were standing near your house 
when this happened. Yep, I hope you were ready for a renovation 
anyway, because that wall is coming down. These habits, 
combined with the fact that they don't burn in sunlight, makes 
Creepers a highly annoying foe. They drop gunpowder when you 
kill them. (But not if they blow themselves up.)
Note: Creepers also have a second item drop on death. These 
are music discs, which you can use in jukeboxes to play music. 
However, Creepers only drop music discs when killed by a 
Skeleton's arrow. You can't imagine how difficult it is to 
accomplish this task.

Spiders:
No, these aren't your everyday daddy longlegs. These are 
hairy, red-eyed, arachnaphobia-inducing tarantulas the size 
of small dogs, and to top it all off, they can run faster and 
jump higher than you can. Spiders can jump over walls two 
blocks high, making them nearly impossible to outrun. Their 
cry is an unearthly, static-y screech that does nothing to 
make them less scary. They drop string when they die, and 
although they do not burn in sunlight, they become friendly 
in the morning, and will not attack you. They also screech 
less often in the daytime.

Ghasts: Probably the strangest and spookiest monsters in 
Minecraft, Ghasts inhabit The Nether. They are large, white, 
cube-shaped, ghost-like beings with sad faces. They attack 
by floating out of reach and spitting flaming cannonballs at 
you. Combined with Netherrack's forever-burn nature, Ghasts 
can turn the very ground you walk on into a firey deathtrap. 
Because they float so far away, the only ways to kill them 
are to pelt them with arrows from a bow, deflect their 
cannonballs back at them with a well-timed sword swing, or 
(pros only), use a fishing rod to pull them right up in your 
grill and hack away at their bodies with a sword.

Zombie Pigmen: The other, less-dangerous inhabitants of The 
Nether are these creatures. Similar in form to Zombies, but 
decked out in worn armor, Zombie Pigmen are unique in that 
they will not attack you until you fight them first. Then, 
they chase after you and bash you with their swords. Nearby 
Pigmen will also rush to their comrades' aid in battle as well. 
They are certainly tough, but because they drop cooked 
porkchops when they die, the reward might just be worth the 
risk.

Slimes: This RPG cliche makes its' way to Minecraft in a rather 
obscure way. Slimes only spawn deep underground (below Y level 
40 on your map) in natural caves, and they are very difficult 
to find. They resemble jiggly green blocks of gelatin, and 
attack by hopping toward you and ramming you. They come in 
several sizes, with the larger ones being stronger. When dealt 
lethal damage, larger Slimes split up into several smaller 
ones. They drop Slimeballs when they die, which are used to 
craft Sticky Pistons.

Cow: This farm animal wanders lazily around the world, as cows 
often do, mooing its' little heart out. When they die, they 
drop leather, which can be crafted into weak armor.

Pig: The most useful animal in the game by far, pigs drop raw 
porkchops when they die. Going pig hunting is a great way to 
restock on health-restoring items.

Chicken: These lil' guys wander around aimlessly, clucking 
and crowing and clucking some more. They drop feathers when 
they die, but you may want to consider letting them live. Every 
five minutes or so, a chicken will lay an egg, which can be 
used to craft yummy cakes, or you can just chuck them at your 
buddies. Interesting note: Throwing an egg has a small chance 
of hatching a live chicken.

Sheep: These fluffy animals come in several different colors 
in nature. Killing them causes them to drop 1 block of wool, 
but pressing LT on them with shears makes them drop up to 4 
blocks and become bald. There is no reason to kill them after 
shearing the wool, as they don't drop anything on death when 
they are bald. Eventually, a sheared sheep will regrow its' 
wool, and can be killed/sheared again for more wool. Also, 
if you have dye in your hands and press LT on a sheep, you 
will dye the sheep's wool the color of the dye. Have a whole 
flock of blue, pink and yellow sheep if you want!

Squid: These rarely-seen sea creatures lazily swim around in 
large bodies of water. They drop ink sacks when they die.

Wolf: Uncommon, sheep-hunting members of the canine family 
that, at first glance, don't seem to be very special. They 
don't drop anything when they die, and are the only animals 
that actually fight back when you hit them. Furthermore, if 
a wolf sees his buddy getting attacked, he will come after 
you as well. However, wolves are very special for one reason: 
they can be yours. By feeding a wolf a bone with LT, you have 
a chance of taming the wolf. It may take several tries (and 
bones) to succeed, but when you see hearts popping out of the 
wolf and a red collar appear around its' neck, that wolf is 
now yours. Your new pet will follow you everywhere (except 
into The Nether), and will help you fight enemies (except 
Creepers). By looking at a tame wolf and pressing LT, you can 
make them sit if you want to go alone for a bit. If they get 
hurt enough, they will die. Prevent this by feeding them raw 
and cooked porkchops. Tame wolves show their health condition 
by the position of their tail. A perked-up tail means a healthy 
wolf.


Dungeons and Monster Spawners:
Deep underground, there exist special areas. These areas, 
denoted by unique Mossy Cobblestone lining the floor, are 
known as dungeons. In the center of each dungeon, there is 
a blue cage with a tiny spinning pig inside. This is a monster 
spawner. These are very bad things, because every few seconds, 
a certain type of monsters (either spiders, skeletons, or 
zombies) spawn around the cage, in groups of 3 or 4 at a time. 
Monster Spawners can be broken, but a better way of disabling 
them is to place torches on all sides of the spawner block. 
This prevents monsters from appearing out of the cage. And 
leaving a spawner intact will allow crafty players to make 
devices to mass-produce monster items. I have no idea how to 
do this, and if you want to find out how, your best bet is 
to look it up elsewhere on the Internet. Finally, the thing 
that makes dungeons worth finding, are up to two treasure 
chests in each dungeon. These are filled with random items, 
including strings, gunpowder, bread, empty buckets, music 
discs, and saddles (used to ride pigs!).

Fun Fact: Character Skins
This has nothing to do with anything, but if you press the 
Start button to open the Pause menu, then select Help/Options, 
you can choose from a limited selection of skins for your 
character. Want blonde hair and a red Speedo? You can have 
that. Want a James Bond suit? You can have that, too.
This is a hidden line. It is an anti-theft measurement. If 
you find this guide is on a website that is not in the list 
of approved sites in the "legal" section, please send me an 
email.

SURVIVING THE FIRST NIGHT [MINE1ST]

This is assuming you don't wimp out and set the difficulty 
to Peaceful on your first night.

When you start a new world, you will appear in a random area. 
Wherever you are, your first priority is to get wood. OK, OK, 
have your laugh. I'll wait. All done? Good. Anyway, go run 
around until you find a tree, then hold down RT to punch one 
of the wood blocks making it up until it breaks and a 
collectable block of wood pops out. Grab it, and repeat until 
you have a good supply of wood. 20 or so will be more than 
enough for now. Next, open your crafting menu with the X 
button. You should have Wood Planks highlighted. Mash the A 
button repeatedly until all your Wood has been crafted into 
Wood Planks (1 Wood= 4 Wood Planks). Next, we need to upgrade 
your crafting menu to allow for more options. Highlight the 
Crafting Table (some people call it the Workbench). You'll 
need 4 Wood Planks to craft this bad boy. You only need one, 
so don't waste your planks. After you craft it, make sure it's 
equipped to your hotkey bar (open the inventory with the Y 
button, and use A to move stuff between your inventory and 
hotkey bar). Equip the Crafting Table and place it down on 
the ground with LT (you can break it with RT to pick it up 
and move it later). Press LT on the Crafting Table, and you 
will have access to the complete Crafting menu, with all the 
options unlocked. Right, for what we want, we need sticks. 
Stick are made using wood planks, so highlight them and make 
a good supply (but not so many that you waste all your wood 
planks). Next, press RB to change tabs in the crafting table. 
This section is your tools, and your option on the far left 
is the bread and butter of Minecraft: The pickaxe. Highlight 
it and craft a Wooden Pickaxe out of 3 Wood Planks and 2 Sticks. 
Equip that baby, and our next priority is finding some coal. 
By now, it might be getting a bit late, so hurry up and find 
it! Coal Ore stands out against normal Stone by having big 
black flecks in it. Break it with your pickaxe to gather the 
coal from it. Note that you cannot mine coal, or even stone 
for that matter, with anything besides a pickaxe. The block 
*will* break eventually, but you will not be able to gather 
the resource. Anyway, once you collect a bit of coal and a 
good supply of cobblestone (you get cobblestone by mining 
stone), you can build your first house. It doesn't need to 
be fancy, just a little hut. You can also make it out of Wood 
Planks if you're hurting for Cobblestone, but make sure to 
upgrade to cobble ASAP. Wood-based blocks are not the best 
building material, trust me. Now, craft some torches with Coal 
and Sticks, and place them inside your house to light it up. 
Craft a door with Wood Planks, lock yourself inside, and... 
relax. You did it. You survived your first day and night. 
Assuming your house is secure, your torches are placed, and 
your door is shut, no monsters can get you. You're safe. If 
you still have time before sunset, go out and smack some sheep 
until you get 3 Wool of any color. Use it with Wood Planks 
to craft a bed, place that in your house, and you have a way 
of instantly turning night into day.

Worst-case scenarios:
1. I spawned in a desert/other area with no trees! What do 
I do?
Find some. There is no substitute for wood. Birch wood can 
be used just as well as normal wood, if that's all you have. 
Really, if you can't find ANY trees by the your first sunset, 
you can consider the world a flop anyway.

2. I can't find coal, and it's getting dark!
Alright, this is a pretty common problem, and fortunately 
there is a workaround. What you want to do is gather some wood, 
but only craft some of it into wood planks. Mine some 
Cobblestone (you can find stone, I presume), and use it at 
your Workbench to craft a Furnace. Place that down, and use 
the planks as the fuel, and the wood as the ingredient. This 
will create Charcoal, which functions exactly like Coal. Make 
sure to find natural coal as fast as possible, because making 
charcoal is just a waste of wood unless there is no other 
option.


THE HUNT FOR OBSIDIAN  [MINEOBS]

After you survive your first night, your main goal in 
Minecraft is to find and mine iron, then diamond, then 
obsidian. Firstly, you will need to start a mine. This is 
sometimes as simple as digging down (but not straight down!) 
into the ground until you randomly stumble upon a natural 
cave. Then, just explore the cave systems beneath the earth's 
surface until you find iron ore. Iron ore looks like stone, 
with light brown/tan flecks in it, similar to coal ore. 
However, mining out iron ore does not give you workable iron, 
instead it just gives you a block of the iron ore itself. To 
turn it into Iron Ingots (which is what you use to make iron 
tools), you need to smelt the ore in a furnace (made with 8 
blocks of Cobblestone at a Crafting Table) with fuel, ideally 
coal. However, charcoal, wood, wood planks, sticks, saplings, 
etc. can also be used as fuel. Once you have iron ingots, you 
can craft an Iron Pickaxe. With the Iron Pickaxe, you can mine 
any block in the game... except one: Obsidian. For that, you 
will need to find Diamonds. Diamond Ore looks like stone, but 
with light blue/green flecks in it, and it is even rarer than 
Iron Ore. Thankfully, when you do mine Diamond Ore, you do 
not need to smelt it, as it will give you a Diamond directly. 
Now, we need at least 10 blocks of Obsidian to complete our 
main quest. Obsidian, for those who don't know, is volcanic 
stone that is very, very durable. In Minecraft terms, that 
means it can only be mined with a Diamond Pickaxe (and even 
then, it takes a long time to break). Finding Obsidian is even 
more difficult than mining it, unfortunately. Obsidian is 
created artificially when water touches unmoving lava. So, 
you'll need to craft a bucket (3 Iron Ingots), fill it with 
water, find some lava, and pour the water all up in there. 
Break it with a Diamond Pickaxe, grab the Obsidian before it 
falls into the lava, and rinse and repeat 9 more times. Hey, 
nobody said it was easy!

Once you have your 10 Obsidian, you'll want to arrange it 
(preferably on the surface) in this pattern: 4 blocks across 
by five blocks up. The corners do NOT need to be made of 
Obsidian, and if you want the corners, you will need a total 
of 14 Obsidian. After the Nether Portal is constructed, craft 
a Flint and Steel (1 Iron Ingot, 1 Flint from digging up 
Gravel) and light the center. The Portal will now make eerie 
noises, and purple haze will be inside the center. 
Congratulations, you have reached the theoretical extent of 
what you can accomplish in Minecraft: Xbox 360 edition! But 
what lies behind the Nether Portal? Well, that's an entirely 
different story altogether. (See the "The Nether" section 
below)

THE NETHER [MINEHELL]

The Nether. Quite literally the "Hell" of Minecraft, this 
strange place is home to strange creatures (Ghasts and Zombie 
Pigmen) and new and intriguing types of blocks. Each step 
taken in The Nether equals three steps in the surface world, 
so if you build two Nether Portals, you can use the Nether 
to travel more quickly between distant areas. What else is 
in The Nether? Danger, and lots of it. Lava flows like water 
here, the very ground beneath your feet is incredibly 
flammable, and certain sections can slow your movement down, 
making you easy pickings for the Ghasts. It's nice, but I 
wouldn't build a summer home there.

EXTRA STUFF [MINEEXT]

So, you've built your portal and had your fill of The Nether. 
What should you do while you're waiting for the next update 
to come out? Try some of these little tricks to make your 
Minecraft experience that much better:

1. Achievement hunt! (See the Achievement section below)
2. Take the fight to the monsters by crafting a bow and making 
a stockpile of arrows!
3. Make a wheat garden and have a renewable resource of food! 
Making a wheat garden is one of the most underrated practices 
in Minecraft, fairly complicated though it is. First off, 
you'll need some seeds. Seeds can be found by ripping up tall 
grass and ferns. Once you have seeds, you'll need to craft 
a Hoe to till dirt (preferably in a designated area fairly 
close to your house). Next, you need to make sure that the 
seeds have two things they need to survive: Water and constant 
light. The former is as easy as making an infinite spring (See 
the Cheating section below) and piping some of that water to 
furrows in the ground near your tilled dirt. When the dirt 
becomes very dark brown, seeds will begin to grow in it once 
planted. For constant light, set up torches in and above the 
garden. This not only stops monsters from spawning in your 
fields, it also lets the wheat grow at night, when there is 
no sun. Finally, we need to make sure that curious animals 
and monsters can't get into the garden and trample the growing 
wheat! Craft some fences with your Crafting Table (6 Sticks 
makes 2 fences), and surround your entire garden with them. 
Leave one space for a Door so you can enter and exit the garden 
as you please. Now, just wait for the wheat to grow tall and 
turn brown. Then, smack the crop with RT and you will recieve 
1 Wheat and up to 2 Seeds. Replant a seed back in the open 
plot, and start it all over again! With wheat, you can craft 
many food items, most importantly bread. Bread is a cheap 
alternative to Cooked Porkchops for restoring health.

4. Build a minecart track for easy access around the world! 
The only thing to keep in mind for this is that you will need 
Powered Rails as well as normal rails to get your minecarts 
moving, and those need to be powered by Redstone to be 
activated. I recommend placing Redstone Torches along the 
sides of your minetrack wherever you have powered rails.

SKINS [MINESKIN]

Skins are, basically, alternative characters to play as. The 
skin you are "wearing" does not affect gameplay in any way. 
In the original release, the skin you had was dependent on 
what player you were (player 1 in a world was always Steve, 
player 2 was always Tennis Steve, etc.)

Standard Skins: These come preloaded when you buy the game.
1. Steve (green shirt, jeans)
2. Tennis Steve (Tennis uniform, blonde hair, headband)
3. Tuxedo Steve (Tuxedo and dress pants)

Redstone mechanisms, you should find somebody else to teach 
you how to use these.

9. Sticky Piston
Ingredients: 1 Piston, 1 Slimeball
Created to (finally) make hunting Slimes worthwhile, the 
Sticky Piston functions similarly to the Piston, but the block

THE FURNACE

The Furnace is a crafted item that, when placed, allows for 
firing of objects. To use the furnace, you must put a 
compatible object in both the ingredient and fuel 
sections. Some types of fuel burns longer than others.

Sticks: Very short fuel time (smelts 1 block)
Wood Planks, Saplings, Birch Saplings: Short fuel time 
(smelts 3 blocks)
Coal, Charcoal: Medium fuel time (smelts 8 blocks)
Bucket of Lava: Long fuel time (smelts 100 blocks, but you 
lose the bucket)

Many objects can be fired to become different items:
Wood or Birch Wood----Charcoal
Sand----Glass
Iron Ore----Iron Ingot
Gold Ore----Gold Ingot
Cactus----Cactus Green Dye
Raw Porkchop----Cooked Porkchop
Raw Fish----Cooked Fish

Each firing process takes a bit of time to occur, signified 
by whether the furnace is lit or not. A lit furnace generates 
high amounts of light, enough to prevent monsters from 
spawning! Also, furnaces can be combined with minecarts to 
create a minecart that can travel on the fuel placed in the 
furnace, without the need for Powered Rails and Redstone to 
power them. I highly recommend using Powered Rails and 
Redstone Torches, though.

CHEATING [MINENOOB]

I know of a few cheats so in this version of the game. Before 
this guide was written, there was a duplicate items glitch 
with the Dispenser, but to the best of my knowledge, that has 
been patched.

1. Infinite Spring glitch
You'll need two bucketfuls of water for this. Dig a 2x2 ditch 
in the ground, place a bucket of water in one space, allow 
it to fill the hole, and pour the other bucket in the space 
diagonal to the first Now every space in this tiny lake is 
a "source" block, and you can collect as much water as you 
need from any space in the lake without ever running out.

2. X-ray vision/See caverns glitch
For this glitch, you need to dig deep underground, then dig 
a very long, straight tunnel that is just big enough for a 
character to fit through (2 blocks high). Stand at the 
entrance to the tunnel and go into third person mode. Position 
the camera so it is behind and slightly above your character 
and run forward. If the camera is angled correctly, the 
bobbing of the camera should allow quick glimpses through the 
ceiling of the tunnel, allowing you to see undiscovered 
natural caverns on the horizon. When you see them, head 
towards them and mine over to them, and loot the treasures 
within.

3. Cobblestone Generator
There are several ways of creating these. This one was sent 
in (complete with ASCII, which is beyond my realm of skill) 
by reader "Necrolythe".

Required Items:

At least 20 stone or cobblestone
1 bucket of lava
2 buckets of water
1 ladder/sign
1 wood/stone/sandstone/cobblestone slab

Directions:

Start by placing 3 pieces of cobblestone on the ground in a 
V, then build each spot up to 3 blocks high. At the opening 
of the V, make another stack of cobblestone 3 high, and mine 
out the middle piece. Pour the bucket of lava into gap between 
the 4 blocks at the top of these stacks. Should end up with 
something like this:

TOP VIEW

[c][c][c]
[c][L][c]
   [c]

[c]=Cobblestone
[L]=Lava

The lava will flow down, and not spread through the gap. Now, 
place a block of cobblestone on the ground on 2 opposite sides 
of the generator, and make a V on each side, resulting in this 
shape:

        [c][c][c]
     [c][c][L][c][c]
   [c]     [c]     [c]
     [c]         [c]

Place 2 cobblestone on the ground diagonally from the inner 
2, until you have a shape like this:

        [c][c][c]
     [c][c][L][c][c]
   [c]     [c]     [c]
     [c]         [c]
        [c]   [c]
        [c]   [c]

In the 1 block wide opening, dig down one block and put in 
a slab. Place a sign or ladder on the side of the cobblestone 
next to this hole, as this will keep the water from flowing 
out of the generator. Follow this up by pouring a bucket of 
water into the middle of the side Vs, which will finish the 
generator. The final product should look something like this:

       [c][c][c]
    [c][c][L][c][c]
 [c][w]   [c]   [w][c]
    [c]         [c]
       [c]   [c]
       [c][s][c] <---sign/ladder in middle

now, by standing on the slab in the hole, you can mine the 
cobblestone in front of the lava flow, and a new one will pop 
up, with the flow of water delivering the mined block to the 
player. When lava flows into water, it makes a block of 
cobblestone, while water flowing into water
does nothing. A simple way to get a lot of cobblestone is to 
tape down your RT button, and walk away, coming back in a few 
minutes to check on the progress. Hope you enjoy the infinite 
supply of building materials.

it lays an egg. Craft it all together to make a Cake.

19. When Pigs Fly
Find a dungeon with a Saddle in one of the chests, find a pig 
standing on a cliff, attach the Saddle to the pig, ride the 
pig, and hope it falls off the cliff and takes fall damage. 
If you have a friend, he or she can punch the pig to knock 
it off the cliff early for you. Note that you lose the Saddle 
when the pig dies.

20. Into The Nether
Construct a Nether Portal with at least 10 Obsidian following 
my instructions in the "Hunt for Obsidian" section.
