5 Things You Didn’t Know About cool games minecraft
It’s you’ve got some time to spare, watch the full video walkthrough below, which details every one of the tips learned in the community workshop. You can also skip below to see them listed and explained individually.
You can place torches on furnaces and crafting tables! You will need to go through a short process before doing so, but it IS possible.
Make sure you have a transparent block behind your furnace/crafting table before we begin. If there are any solid blocks around the crafting bench/furnace, remove those, as well. If you do not remove all solid blocks around them, the torches will gravitate towards them instead of placing itself on top of the crafting bench/furnace.
Targeting the transparent block’s edge that is facing the crafting bench/furnace, right-click with a torch in your hand. You will notice the torch magically place itself on the crafting table!
You can place blocks on the side of a torch by hovering over the torch until you see the grid box.
Right-click on the side of the torch grid box with a block in your hand, and it will place the block to the side of the torch! This tip is very helpful for crossing lava pools and saving resources.
Torches placed under falling gravel or sand will break the sand/gravel for you, as long as the sand/gravel falls 2 blocks.
Hold a torch in your hand and break the lowest sand block.
Right as the sand block breaks, place your torch under it quickly!
Watch the torch do the heavy lifting for you, preventing backaches while excavating!
Torches can hold any amount of weight on them.
This allows you to create a sandstone-free pyramid and other fun designs.
You can stack signs on top of each other, and line them up to make for awesome detail in your builds.
