Minecraft First Day Survival Strategies

Since the very first day starts, the participant will have to collect timber (a.k.a. wood). To begin with, the participant must look around then proceed towards some other trees. The participant should collect at least 5-8 cubes of timber logs out of trees by holding down the left mouse button while their cursor is on the block. This is enough wood to craft the basic tools and items the player needs immediately, though you’ll certainly want more a little later.

When the player opens up their inventory (E by default), they will see the inventory window.


The player’s avatar takes up most of the upper portion, The inventory below is the space for the player’s items. The bottom 9 slots are the usable slots, called a hotbar. Four armor slots are to the left of the player’s character (ignore those for now, they don’t become useful until much later on), and a 2×2 square to the right of the character as the player’s personal crafting grid, which can be used to craft a few basic items. By clicking the recipe book (5) the player can easily craft items in this grid. Place the wood logs into any space in the crafting grid, and wooden planks will appear to the right of your wood. Left-clicking the planks will cause the wood to disappear and planks to appear as a newly crafted item. Once you have the planks in your hand, you can drag them down to your inventory, and place using the left click.

Four wooden planks can in turn make a crafting table ( place 4 wooden planks in a 2×2 square ) and place the crafting table to use it. Right click your crafting table to access it, this crafting grid is a 3×3 square, big enough for all of the craftable items in Minecraft. The first tools the player should craft are a wooden pickaxe and a wooden sword. If any stone blocks are exposed close by, the player can mine them with a wooden pickaxe for 19 blocks of cobblestone. This is the amount the player needs to create every basic tool they’ll need for this tutorial: a sword, a pickaxe ( you’ll need the upgraded pickaxe for iron and other blocks ), an axe, a shovel, a hoe, and a furnace. You’ll need the furnace to cook meat for food and smelt any ore you mine with your pickaxe. Once the player has a stone axe, they should try to get more wood as time allows; extra wood is useful in many ways, from securing and equipping your base to making charcoal, or simply crafting into planks for quadruple the number of building blocks.

If all goes well, the player can obtain coal quickly. With the sticks they made from their wooden planks and some coal, they will be able to make torches (coal above a stick on the crafting grid). With torches in hand, you can make for the nearest cave, because iron ore is your next goal. Underground will actually be safer than the surface when night falls, so mining the first night away isn’t a bad idea at all. On the other hand, if night is falling and you haven’t found coal, use to furnace to smelt more wood (“logs” , not planks ) to create charcoal, a substitute. ( Additionally, you are able to gather 3 blocks of wool from sheep and combine it with three planks to make a bed. With this you can sleep through the night without the worry of monsters killing you. The downside of this is wasting sunlight the next day mining, or working indoors. )

Night time

For night time, the primary danger will be hostile mobs (monsters) that only spawn in the dark. These include zombies, skeletons, and spiders. It is a good idea to stay in a well-lit shelter (see below).

If you’re really seeking adventure you could always arm yourself with a stone sword and go fight some mobs; you might be able to get some materials for further crafting and some early experience levels, which will come in handy later on. However, all of these monsters will either die (zombies and skeletons) or become less dangerous (spiders) when morning comes, and it will be much easier to fight them later when you have better equipment. If you must fight monsters this early, be especially wary of skeletons; in the open their arrows can kill you at a distance, and if they’re in the water or on higher ground, it’s unlikely you’ll be able to reach them before they turn you into a (dead) pincushion. If you happen to see any of the more powerful monsters, keep well away from them: At this point an enderman, witch, or even a creeper can kill you easily.

If you are repeatedly getting killed ( perhaps you got too ambitious, a monster got into your shelter, or you didn’t manage to make a shelter ), one desperate response would be to go into ” peaceful difficulty” (see “changing the rules”, below). However, consider this: This being your first day, you aren’t actually losing much until the deaths (at least not after what stuff you’ve gathered is lost ), so you can just tough it out until dawn and start again. Keep on practicing killing mobs until you get the hang of it.


As noted above, you really want to find or make some kind of shelter before your first night, because you won’t want to be killed. The “Shelters” article above gives a lot of emergency shelters and then more advanced ideas, but it only takes a little thinking ahead to manage a decent shelter for your first night. As you move around collecting wood and so on, look at the landscape for potential homes. Easiest (if you can find it) is a small cave with a single entrance that you can wall or fence off. If it’s not quite ideal, consider if you can fix it quickly — say, fencing off a back door to deeper caves. If you don’t have a cave, you may be able to make one, by simply digging into a mountainside or even roofing over a small valley. If instead you have wide, flat space, then go ahead and build a small house. In all cases:

Don’t be too ambitious the first night, because you want it safe before dark, and you also want to light up the space you claim. You can always expand and decorate your home later, or even rearrange the landscape around it.

When picking your location, it’s good to have a view of the landscape so you can see if any monsters are waiting for you in the morning.

Learn about the awesome powers of wood: Fences can be used not only in the obvious way, but as windows or transparent walls, with fence gates to get in and out. Doors provide a full-height option, but you’ll want to surround them with solid blocks (planks, stone, even dirt, but not fences). A few properly-placed ladders can make it a lot easier to get up to your roof or up a hill. A chest will also be useful — stash anything you’re not going to use soon, so you don’t have to worry about it if you happen to get killed.

If you can manage to make a bed early on, place that in your shelter and use it the first night you have it. Getting killed is much less painful when you respawn into a safe place! After the first night, you may well want to spend the nights crafting and mining.


Monsters can’t spawn within 24 blocks of you, but huddling in the dark is no fun — and when you do leave your home, you don’t want to come back to find a monster has moved in. So, you need to light up your space, and at this point, the light you have is torches. A single torch gives enough light to prevent monster spawns completely within a 7 block range (barring obstructions), and reduce them for about the same distance past that. That includes horizontal and vertical steps, so the safe zone only runs 3 spaces or so diagonally. Even outside the safe zone, having some light will sharply reduce the chance of monsters spawning ( depending on how much light), but it’s better to use enough torches to keep your whole home well-lit. If you have extra torches after that, try to light some space outside your home (or at least the entrance ) too, to push back the area where monsters are likely to spawn.

Food and hunger

Once you have tools and shelter, your next priority will be food. Hunger will take a while to hit, so it shouldn’t be a problem on your first day, but you should try to pick up some food for when it does. However, after you’ve been moving around for a while, your food bar will begin rippling and start to decrease. If your food bar drops below 90%, you will not regenerate health, and if it gets to 30%, you can’t sprint. If the hunger bar goes down to empty, you will begin losing health. Unless you’re in Hard mode ( and a beginning player shouldn’t be), you can’t actually starve to death, but you will go down to 1 health point in Normal mode or half your health in Easy mode, and that leaves you quite vulnerable. You don’t lose hunger in Peaceful mode, so you don’t have to worry about that.
In recent versions of Minecraft, the primary drain on your hunger is from healing damage. You will have a little grace period (see “saturation” on the Hunger page ) when starting the game and after eating, but when that’s exhausted, healing a single point of damage (Half Heart. svg) costs the equivalent of 1 . 5 hunger points ( that’s 3/4 of a visible “shank”). Avoid taking falls of more than 3 blocks, drowning or burning yourself, or otherwise taking damage that you will need to heal.

A few other activities also cause hunger, though more slowly:

Fighting: Both attacking mobs and receiving damage cost hunger, even before you start trying to heal damage. (60 blows either way, matches healing Half Heart. svg. ) You will need to slaughter a few animals but pick your fights carefully. Taking damage in other ways counts for this too, but each time you take damage it counts as one ” blow ” no matter how much damage you took.

Sprinting. If you double-tap the forward movement key (W by default), or press your sprint key (Left Ctrl by default), you will sprint. This moves somewhat faster, but it also uses up food. (60 meters matches healing Half Heart. svg. ) However, if you happen to have a sufficient amount of food in your inventory, you can always do it your way.

Jumping. Obviously, you’ll need to jump some just to get around, but don’t bounce around randomly or unnecessarily. (120 jumps matches healing Half Heart. svg. ) Sprinting jumps are especially costly, 4 times as much as a regular jump, although they are the fastest mode of transportation early in the game. Swimming and mining blocks cost a little hunger, but those are minimal compared to the items above.

Note that if you’re (staying) at full health, and not fighting , sprinting and/or jumping, or mining blocks, then you will use no food. Thus, if your character has a secure place to stay, you can just stay put to conserve food while waiting out the night, a storm, or crop/animal growth.

Consider making a basic crop farm immediately after you have settled in a place. Wheat is where you’ll begin:

You can use harvested wheat to make bread. You can obtain it easily using seeds collected by breaking grass. When harvesting wheat, you can use the wheat/seeds to breed cows and chickens, thus having a better food source.

How to Install and Download Minecraft Maps

Minecraft is an environment of infinite creativity, and the nearly limitless collection of maps available online is a testament compared to that. You will find maps to match any taste, from easy to incredibly complex, all produced by additional players and shared for the city. In the event that you were thinking ways to add customized maps to your personal computer edition of Minecraft, we developed this task by step guidebook to assist you.

Step one 1: Download the map.

Minecraft maps can be found as totally free downloads from websites such as for example, Minecraft Globe Discuss and MinecraftDL. To download the archived map document to your personal computer, click on the “Download” or “Download Map” switch. These websites possess maps in various groups that are ideal for different playing designs, such as for example surviving, solving puzzles and eliminating monsters. The maps are usually made by followers who distribute them free of charge.

Remember that looking for Minecraft maps quickly qualified prospects you right into a twilight of shady webpages. There are a great number of infections out there, so be cautious everything you download. Adhere to well-known discussion boards, and don’t adhere to links to unusual ones.

Step two 2: Unzip the file.

The maps you retrieve from the net tend to be zipped or compressed to ensure that they take up small space and become downloaded faster than map files which have not been zipped. You can simply identify the zipped files by their extensions, such as for example .zip (a common regular in Home windows and Operating system X) and .sit.

Unzipping the .zip or .rar document is necessary to ensure that Minecraft may detect them. You will require a document archiver program to get this done, such as for example 7-Zip (Home windows). In the zip file may be the globe folder of the map that you downloaded. Select it once to choose it and go through the Extract To switch. A fresh window will pop-up. Here you can choose where you desire the folder to become extracted. Click OK if you have chosen a location.

If a Mac is used by you, the “Archive Utility” included in OS X can open .zip documents by right-clicking on the .zip and selecting “Open up With > Archive Utility”. The documents and/or folders will become deposited to the same area as the zip, and the zip may then be deleted.

You will require a different program like the Unarchiver for .rar files. That is clear of the App Shop and functions in precisely the same manner as the built-in zip device – simply double-click the archive document and the documents and folders will instantly become extracted to the same area.

When the downloaded zip file contains multiple items, the unzipped files will be kept in a folder which has the same name because the initial zip file. For instance, in the event that you unzip a document known as, the files will be positioned in a folder called minecraftmap. This folder will be positioned in the same folder as the file.

Step three 3: Open up the extracted folder.

Open the folder which you produced by extracting the map file. In the event that you open up the folder with the map’s name, you should observe several documents and folders, including a known level.dat document, a data folder, and many other files. Keep this open up for the present time.


Step 4: Open up the Minecraft will save folder.

After you have the map pack, it’s period to demand conserve folder of your Minecraft profile. By default, the save folder is definitely in the next location:

· Home windows: C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves\
· Mac Operating system: /Users/[yourusername]/Library/Software Support/Minecraft/will save/

This is one way you can the saves folders:

In Windows.

1. Open up the beginning menu and choose Run.
2. Type (without estimates) ” C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves\
” and strike Enter.

In Mac OS.

1. Open up the Finder.
2. Select Proceed and Head to Folder…
3. When prompted, enter (without estimates) “/Users/[yourusername]/Library/Software Support/Minecraft/will save/”.


Step 5: Duplicate the map folder to the will save folder.

Copy the map folder containing the particular level. dat document and data folder from the additional window in to the saves folder. Once you’ve place the map into your will save folder, get on Minecraft as you generally do and you will right now find the brand new maps in your set of available worlds.

Step 6: Begin Minecraft.

Finally, you need to find your brand-new save among all of your other saves. Generally, the name of the brand new customized map should come in the set of worlds. Select the global world, and click “Perform Selected Globe” to begin exploring the brand new custom map.

There you go! You will have all you need to set up a customized map probably the most well-known PC games ever. Therefore experiment, try any maps that passions you, and monitor new and fascinating maps because they debut around the net.

Pokémon Go Tips

It seems that Pokémon Go is still going strong out there and everyone is playing. There was a recent major content update and in light of that, here is a collection of Pokémon Go Tips and Tricks.

Gotta catch ’em all, right?

Clash Royale Title

Clash Royale – A Guide

Be Patient With Your Offensive Approach

Clash Royale takes the Clash of Clans formula and mashes it up with card combating mechanics. A lot of magic strikes and the exact same troops you’re familiar with are contained here in trading card sort. On the battlefield, it might seem like an excellent idea to rush the assault as fast as possible and take down your opponent. But during the opening minutes of a match, start out slow with your offensive strategy.

Don’t freak out too much when you find your towers are getting attacked; stay composed and send your troops out according to your tactical plans. When you do take a minimum of one Competition Tower down, that’s the time where you should ramp up your assault and grab the win as fast as possible. As the time winds down to seconds and its last minute, the speed where your Elixir refills will double. This provides you with a chance to place even more troops on the field than before.

Smash it With Arrows and Fireballs when You’re Ready to Place Waste to the King’s Tower

Here’s an important Clash Royale tip that you’ll should take heed of – once one of your opponents’ Rival Towers decrease, its King’s Tower will begin attacking you. That super tower that is important may also begin attacking you once you hit them first. If you believe the King’s Towers’ strikes are beginning to rev up or you’re prepared to beat ’ em down early, throw some fireballs and arrows its way. The King’s Tower is a strong foe, but a mix of those strikes plus the help of troops that are already on the field should whittle its health down in no time. Your set of fireballs and arrows should only be used on the King’s Tower to be quite honest. Using those assault cards in some other manner works just as well.

Use Your Elixir Intelligently

Pay close attention to your own Elixir meter as you pull out cards that are new and place em that is ’ . Fight the impulse to put a powerful troop out on day one of a match; play with the type of cards who’s value reaches as much as a max amount of four. Use units that are smaller at first in order to flood the battlefield and whittle down your foe’s tower wellness. It to let your towers wipe out the smaller troops attacking them instead of spending Elixir to spawn a card in order to get the better of them. You should only spend when you realize you’ll have enough to spend on another troop right after some Elixir to spawn a powerful troop. Do’t function as the kind of player who overspends Elixir and has little to none to work with against an overwhelming force.

The Greatest Troop Cards You’ll Must Employ

We now have a couple favorites, as it pertains to the troop cards you’ll desire to undoubtedly carry into conflict. Goblins and Super Goblins are not expensive as it pertains to spending Elixir, so it’s not difficult to throw a bunch of em that is ’ on the battlefield. Archers are great long range troops who you should set up near your towers. Baby Dragons can avoid the strikes of some troops, plus its fireball strikes have the ability to wipe out multiple troop at the same time. Barbarians pack lots of HP, helping to make them amazing “Tank” type characters who continue a superb while and can tear up enemy troops quickly. Golems are the strongest troop type there’s throw one out near the ending minutes of a match to nab the triumph ASAP. Minion Horde, giant Skeleton, Wizard and Prince cards come in handy too, so embrace a strategy for them that works for you.

Getting New Cards Takes Some Time, So Here’s How You’ll Need To Wait for Those New Chests to Open

If you’re pressed for time, chances are high that you’re gonna spend a couple of jewels to open chests that are recently obtained up immediately. You’ll be allowed access to cards that are new just by cracking open. You ’ll be lucky enough to get an Infrequent or type card that is Epic Poem. You then should’t if you’re patient have much of an issue waiting the allotted time needed for a chest to reveal it’s goods.

  • Free Chests open up when you get ’em (you’ll get a brand new one every four hours), plus Silver Torsos take three hours to open.
  • Gold Chests take eight hours,
  • Magic Chests take 12 hours and Crown Chests open up immediately (you’ll get a brand new one every 24 hours).
  • For the last two chest sorts in the game, Giant Chests take Super Magic Chests and 12 hours take 24 hours to open.

The Best Time to Break Out Your Poison Spell

When you eventually add the Poison charm card to your own deck, make sure that you use it during one specific scenario that happens during every match. It’s best to hit them with this gaseous cloud of departure, when you find your towers becoming a bit flooded by enemy troops. That way, you’ll be able open them up for more assaults out of your towers and to slow on enemies that are incoming. The Poison charm card also helps give your troops an edge since they’ll have an easier time wiping out troops that are poisoned. The Poison charm card costs four points of Elixir, so it should be easy to break it out when the time’s right.

Be Smart About Your Gold Spending

It’s much far better to be choosy about your upgrades, although it’s quite tempting in the beginning to update every card you possibly can. Generally, I’d stick since they’re more affordable to upgrading mostly common cards. Also, simply use your gold to update cards you understand you use often and enjoy. Free torsos are given for you at regular periods and you get a chest when you win a conflict so you will be able to update other cards along the way in the goodies you get in those torsos. Gold is extremely tough to come by in the game, so being careful about how you spend it’ll make a difference for your deck and the number of battles you win.

And there you have it: pretty much everything you need to know to dominate at Clash Royale!

Taking A Peek At Diamond Digger Saga

The Diamond Digger Saga program has iPad perspective and a committed iPhone, but its current success is because of those behind the application. The Diamond Digger Saga program is from Farm Heroes and Candy Crush Saga’s makers, although it’s the latter title which has required both Android and iOS platforms by storm.

The gameplay is a small departure from conventional Match-3 games like Candy Crush. You must clear a route by clicking on groups of 3 or more identical diamonds.. This permits water to go in the top of the screen to the bottom, leading you to new areas and potential opportunities for treasure. Each level has an alternate aim, such as to hit a certain score or gather up some isolated fireflies along the way. It is simple with each phase not taking to finish – and that’s where King gets you.

Youwill find that the first couple of degrees are a breeze.. However, King has interspersed some really hard ones in there, so you will likely end up spending money in the game sooner rather than after.

It is an idea which is both skeptical and sometimes head-scratching. Diamond Digger Saga is just really easy to play that casual gaming fans will be drawn in again, appreciating the simplicity of simply exploiting to clear, without any fears of a time limit. Diamond Digger Saga does not have as many levels as other games in this genre, but we can expect that over time more will be added, and it offers up just enough simple fun to lure you into the encounter.

Here’s a link If you’re needing some Diamond Digger Saga technqiues

Ten Important Star Wars Commander Help And Cheats

Star Wars Commander is a new mobile game from Disney Interactive that plays a lot like Clash of Clans. Here are some amazing Star Wars: Commander Cheats and Secrets for novices.

1. Take Advantage of Your 1st Few Days of Immunity Against Player Attacks

One of the first things about Star Wars: Commander, you will notice that there is a live player vs. player feature of the game. Since you won’t have resources or the troops needed to attack/defend yourself, the game gives you a couple days of immunity. Use this protective time period to become more knowledgeable about the single-player characteristics of the game.

Notice that you attack someone during your resistance period, which will immediately remove your timed protection. And if you’re willing to purchase some timed protection, you must always cop the 1-week protection boost.

2. The Empire Troops Have entry to Extra Unit Conveyances, although They May Be Poorer

When selecting which side to play as (the Rebels or the Empire), note that you’ll have use of the exact same infantry sorts with distinct looks obviously. You will reach train and utilize the aid of rocket launcher equipped soldiers, heavy machine gunners, snipers and much more.

Note the Rebels are the stronger of the sides you’ll really get to pick from. Though the Empire is a bit poorer, they have use of additional unit transports.

3. Focus

Among the buildings you need to concentrate your efforts that are upgrading on is your Research Facility. A powerful Research Facility leads to your troops (leveled all and up) becoming even stronger. For example, training stormstroopers and after that studying them will cause them to become super dependable.

4. Build Up A Healthy Amount of Barracks

Your Barracks are needed to be able to train your troops. Build a lot of Barracks up and make your troops a top priority of building to update the, on your own list. Doing so will result in your troops much faster and also the larger number of troops at a time can be trained by you.

5. Towards Using Your Starship Command Airstrikes, the top Methods

Once you unlock the starship command, you’ll be able to work with airstrikes for even faster and greater amounts of damage. Your best bet using the airstrikes is to you either take the firearms out or take out resource buildings. Or, if you are actually trying hard to really go for metals, unleash your air stripes on the enemy headquarters so that it’s quite easy to remove.

6. Update Your Credit Vault a Short Ton, Too

Another building upgrading is focused on by you is your credit vault. You’ll have to stash those crystals and all that cash you will be amassing as time goes on. This also goes for your alloy depot.

7. Keep You’ll and Your Base Clean Be Allowed Some Crystals to your Troubles

This hint’s quite simple – ensure you clean stone heaps and all of the crap off you’ve trashed through your foundation. Ensure that your droids do all this dirty work and you will earn some extra crystals. Entire assignments and log in with Facebook to nab some more crystals too.

Be sure to complete any storyline assignments with three stars. This achievement will gift you with some crystals also.

8. Defend Your Buildings that are More Important and Use Your Less Important Buildings to Defend Against Assaults

You must make it a top priority to offer up some walls around your important buildings, for example your alloy storehouse and credit vault. That also goes for the sets. If there is any building you are willing to sacrifice for the greater good, then you definitely ought to use them to encircle the margin all around your buildings that are better.

Make sure to put some turrets near your defensive walls and fortresses that are building live players do not get too close to your buildings that are cherished.

9. The Brightest strategies to Approach

Once you’re able to take on a live player, you should make certain you’ve got a worthy quantity of troops and resources before you head into conflict. Once the live player battle begins, you should ensure it is a habit to take their gun turrets out ASAP. Then make sure to tear their defensive walls down when they happen to possess any. Once you’ve done all of this, focus your attention on depleting their resources and knocking down their buildings.

You should also make this resource a top priority to tear down, in the event the live player you’re taking on has a shield generator. During these player skirmishes that are live, you should set your chosen heroes. You might as well focus on beating down those much weaker players that are live.

10. Attempt to Build More Than One of all Up At a Time

It’s possible for you to build up several resource generators in a time so that they will make more alloy and circuits:

You can also build a lot more than one with respect to the level of your headquarters, although it is possible to upgrade your resource generators to make credits and more alloy. Building greater than one troop transport is particularly important when later missions begin pitting you against large numbers of enemy soldiers.
