More Tips for Noobs at Minecraft

When it comes to feeding your "Steve" the deeper you get into the game the more options you will have. Keep in mind that the better the quality of food the more quickly your Steve can recover. A good loaf of bread for instance can help you get back a little of what you lost well out hunting and fighting with monsters at night. 

You make bread by harvesting wheat which you may have to grow, but can sometimes find wild. 

You can also get eggs from the many chickens walking around and perhaps fencing them in. You can get sugar cane in the wild as well then craft it into sugar. In also helps to craft yourself a bucket it's easy to do, do you can then go to a cow and milk it. It actually is at much work as it sounds like but it's worth it on those long dangerous nights hunting down monsters, to help you recover faster. 

There are fun things you can make too. You can also craft a pumpkin pie with eggs, pumpkin, and sugar, or craft yourself a cookie with coco-beans from a dungeon, or coco-plants from a jungle tree.

As you play the game at first you won't really be able to see if Steve is hungry or not. It's not like The Sims where there is an individual meter that tells you how he's doing hunger and sleep wise. You just have to watch the level of hearts and try to keep food on hand and rest when you can to keep those up. 

You will learn quickly that poor Steve may not always be able to get sleep at night becuase monsters are to close. So food is a kind of on the go recovery method.

Welcome Noobs

To all the Noobs out there welcome to my Minecraft blog!

In this blog I hope to give you all some great tips for playing and kicking some serious Ender Dragon butt.

So lets go then......

First of all my noobs get a skin before you go on the server for the first time this helps to personalize your Minecraft avatar "Steve".  Try PlanetMinecraft.com to find a skin that is right for you, there are also other great websites out there for that kind of thing but be careful some are pay based and other's loaded with viruses and other junk you don't want on your computer.

The next thing you want to do is find a great server to log onto for the first time. I've always liked Ghast.com myself. This is where the fun begins, get in and build yourself shelter right away. Hollow out a hill or build something out of dirt but just get yourself something to hide out in as soon as possible. Find yourself some trees too, and collect as much wood as you can this is critical for what you need to do next.

When night falls things will get hard, very hard for you without shelter. The Minecraft world is filled with Zombies, Skeletons with arrows, Spiders, Creeper, and Enderman all hoping to make you dinner and take your stuff.

During your first night (hopefully in your shelter) start constructing your crafting tables, and then all the tools you need.

The next morning start the "Mining" part of Minecraft and begin digging for things like iron, coal, and the really awesome stuff like gold, diamonds, and emeralds. On the third day your Steve avatar is going to be pretty spent, so now is a good time to hunt and help him with his comforts by constructing a bed, and getting food from chickens, cows, pigs, and Mooshrooms.

Stay tuned my Noobs I have more to share in my next article.
