I'm sure that anyone who's clicked onto this thread has probably already played minecraft or you are probably addicted to mining for coal to make torches, and trying to figure out how the bow and arrows work etc.
Well, I decided it would be a good idea to start a thread where people can ask for help from others who play minecraft.
Also, I am looking for a server to play on in multiplayer. I attempted to make a server myself, but frankly i've no idea what i was doing so i gave up!
So, let's get started...if you're having a hard time crafting things in minecraft then minepedia is a good place to look for recipies etc..
Interesting things I've managed to make/do so far (i've spent hours on end searching for minerals doing this!):
1. Fishing rod
2. Bow and arrows
3. Diamond Pickaxe
4. Portal to the Nether.
5. I've grown my own wheat and made bread
6. Cooked fish
7. Found 3 dungeons in one cave (scary)
8. Saddled a pig and went for a joyride.
9. Built an Indestructable home in the nether, to protect the portal.
10. Built a railway and a powered minecart
among other things...anyway let the fun begin!
