We continue to do our Mine Craft research thanks to all the dedicated nerds & online resources out there.  Our main goal is to help you stay alive – But we also want you to know some of the coolest ways to stay alive along with mini tips & hints that might just change the way you look at how you play Mine Craft.

(Remember: There is no wrong way to play Mine Craft and that’s what makes it so unique & perfect for so many people … It’s your own world: Your own way!)

Now for some juicy tips & tricks to help keep you alive longer.

First let’s start with the power of torches.  I know it seems simple, but don’t be afraid to sprinkle!  This translates to spread your torches out as you travel so you don’t get lost or get eaten by creepers and spiders when you don’t have to.  (Burn some wood on wood action to produce charcoal for the torches; Wood & wood-planks create the torch stick handle.)

Once you’ve mastered the basics of the torch there are a few quick tips that can make your life last longer & more efficient.

1.) Use torches to your advantage | Spread them more often than not.

2.) Torches can be used to build on top of to save time & resources while forcing you to use more light in your structures (Make sure you have the right angle and you can create some stunning visuals)

3.) Under water survival. Place one on a block & it will create a temporary air bubble that you can refill your oxygen with long enough to allow you to surface in time.

4.) Chuck a torch at the bottom of a sand stack or gravel and watch it crumble! Easy and quick if you want to destroy some previously built stairs or secret entrances or exits.

5.) Sings and ladders can help stop water and lava in a hurry!  If you have the guts; This will allow you to explore with underwater houses & lava layers!

6.) One lava bucket can fuel a furnace for 1,000 seconds & can cook 1,000 items in a furnace.  (Basically anything made out of wood such as the jukebox, bookshelves, chests, & trap doors to fuel the furnace as well)

7.) Throughout survival mode you’ll need to learn the fastest way to break down a resource.  Here’s a few helpful hints on items you may come across on the regular -> Swords break melons & Cacti the best | Axes are best for ‘Smashing Pumpkins’ & lastly don’t forget to dig dirt with a shovel; Don’t waste your better tools on DIRT!

8.) Flower Boat Pots: Plant a flower first, Then a wooden boat directly on top of it.  The boat will sink into the ground & become a nice planter.  (Mainly a visual advantage; But under the right circumstance you can plant a tree or garden anywhere with one square of dirt for a quick boost)

9.) Set your spawn. Make yourself a nice bed in order to stay alive & save your spawn spot.  3 wool pieces and 3 wooden planks is all you need to complete your bed structure.  Sleep tight … Don’t let the spiders & creepers bite!!

10.) Worst case; Always have a torch!!  Bring at least (1) torch with you and you can simply dig down 3 squares and your safe.  Put a torch down there or you might just scare yourself into popping back out into the world prematurely.  (It takes a long time to make the clock; But if you can create the Mine Craft time clock it will make your day & night trips way more safe & efficient in the long run.

These sneaky helpful tips & tricks should help get you started; Of course don’t be an ignorant ‘Noob’ … There are still plenty of new updates and ways to accomplish different goals throughout the game.
