Click here on How to set up  your First  Base

A quick introduction… I’ve been wanting to do something Minecraft related on Loneswing for a long time, and finally decided to do a narrative-guide hybrid of the Minecraft Pocket Edition. Minecraft is one of those deep, complicated games where the player learns something new each time they load their world. In this series I will build a world, talk about it, show some tricks, and hopefully inspire other Minecraft players.

And it begins…

Here it is: a broad landscape consisting of snow, mountains and the odd sheep, waiting to be tamed and cultivated by fist and tool. Where to begin? First things first, both coal and wood are a necessity if one is to survive the first sunset and sunrise. Right, that’s common knowledge.

The first thing I like to do is dig down to build a temporary base. One which will have tunnels connecting to far away bases and structures above ground. This base we will build will have all this, and maybe more. Like an underground garden and wheat farm. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The mountains have coal, so once I have acquired coal and wood I can commence base building.

More than a ditch…

All right. I’ve dug quite deep. Now, one of the benefits of your first base being underground is you have easy access to important blocks such as Coal and Iron. Coal is important for lightening and smelting, and Iron provides sturdier tools and Armor. Another bonus of this base is when it’s night, we can mine for stone for later structures. Digging deeper will grant us access to Gold, Diamond and Lava.

20130115-210018.jpgAfter digging out this hole I’ve accumulated more than enough for a future Tree Farm, and to decorate the base. The gather coal will help keep this places lit, and I also have 20 blocks of Iron ore.

The next thing to build is a hole for a bed, to decorate, and begin making tunnels. A quick note: to enter and leave my temporary home, I am using a ladder that goes up a hole, leading to the surface.

Tunnels, storage, and mining

I build my tunnels 2 blocks wide and 3 high, which provides plenty of room to maneuver. Lighting consists of torches spaced by two blocks, and two blocks high. No creepers, zombies, spiders or skeletons will spawn down here. Remember to keep your rooms adequately lit or else you’ll have creepers stalking you then– BOOM. Death via creeper is always embarrassing.

20130115-205954.jpgAt the end of this tunnel I created a storage room equipped with furnaces for Skelton and tables for crafting. In any minecraft world, you want at least six to eight furnaces for maximum efficiency. No sense wasting time waiting for one furnace to cook. In the mean time, we can store excess Cobble Stone from digging for a tower we will build later. We can also store valuable materials we find such as Ores and Coal. It’s never good to carry what you don’t need immediately on you in case an accident occurs. I’ve been caught between creepers and ended up losing diamonds, just because I was too lazy to store them when I had the opportunity.

Down another tunnel we can build two different types of mines. The first one will be a Branch mine, which is an efficient technique when searching for rare ores such as Diamonds. I won’t lie, though, I’m pretty bad at branch mining. The second type of mining is, well, I don’t believe it has a name. I’ll formally name it Pit mining. Basically, what I will do is dig a hole that is eight by eight and continues down to bedrock. Pit mining will fill chests full of Cobble Stone.

A place to sleep…

20130115-205939.jpgThe last thing this base needs is a place to sleep. A be requires a couple of things. The first thing we need is two Iron Bars to craft Shears. With the Shears we can begin collecting wool from sheep. Lucky for me, there is a sheep hanging around the hole that leads to our base. To craft a Bed, we need three Wool blocks and Three Wood Planks.

Bed’s can only be used when it is night and when there are no monsters near in the surrounding area. This is another benefit of digging deep: we can avoid monsters. Monsters spawn within a 24 block radius, thus digging 24 blocks below ground and ensuring our base is adequately lit we can always get a good night’s rest.

Here is the first Base

Here it is after a few decorations and simple designs. Since we are going to spend quite a bit of time down here, why not spruce it up even if it’s a waste of resources.
