If we are asked to summarise the whole game into two words, it would be infinite possibilities. It’s like a virtual lego full of amazement. Filled with rivers, mountains, valleys, waterfalls, caves, there is so much to explore in discover. Minecraft is one of the most popular games since 2011; it is still gaining new players now and then.
The Minecraft hacks to make Transferring In Caves hassle-free
Well, every game has its tips and tricks to make it easier, and so does Minecraft. Here are the top 10 hacks in Minecraft to make your travelling through caves like walking into a children’s park.
- Digging diagonally
Do not dig straight down, ever! As it can make you fall into a pool of lava or a cave full of mobs if it’s beneath, and you do not know if the block that you are going to break is going to be the last block leading you to fall into a lava pool. You don’t know what’s directly below you. Although a diagonal pathway can take three times as long to dig, a diagonal staircase tunnel is considered safe as it is much safer and is transversed both ways. On the other hand, if you’re impatient and want to travel through the cave in a hurry, go straight down but stand on the edge of a block and dig another block and vice versa. That way, you’ll be able to tell what’s below you.
- Always place your torch at eye level
Once you’re ready to explore the cave or going to strip mining which means to mine in a specific direction, always place your torch on a wall at eye level. Why? Because every time you dig, you may mine into the water, or you may drop some water that may come past the torch, and it won’t break the torch putting you in a situation where you don’t have any source of light.
- Putting torches on the same side
Let’s be honest, you don’t want to get lost while travelling through caves. Putting torches in a similar direction, for example, if you’re putting all your torches on the left while mining, will help you to know in which direction you’re coming from. This will help you to transverse back from the cave without any confusion.
- Lighting up the whole cave
No one likes mobs, and rushing through the caves lighting it up behind you won’t give mobs much time to spawn. If you’re travelling slowly, making your way through the cave, chances are the mob will find you easily. If you find a large cave, go and place torches wherever you can to make that place lit up so that you don’t have to deal with a bunch of mobs. You can do the mining afterwards.
- Ender chest
Let’s be honest, things don’t always go as we planned. There are chances that you may fall in lava and lose everything. That’s why it is preferable to use an ender chest to store all your valuables. Make sure you select a silk touch pick so that you don’t break the chest afterwards in the game.
- Wood is important
Make sure to bring extra logs for making torches and crafting tables. You are going to find coal while caving, and you can use that coal and wood you brought to make more torches later on.
- Know in which biome you are
There are more than 60 different biomes in Minecraft, ranging from forests, deserts, mountains, plains, and so on. Certain biome generates certain types of ores like you can get iron ore in tiaras, gold ore around rivers, red stone ore in the deep ocean, lapis lazuli ore in deserts.
- Knowing the level
To spawn a particular ore, you need to know which level you’re on and how low you have to go. For example, if you want lapis or red stones, you will find them below level 25; if you want a diamond, you need to go below level 14.
- Set up a base
If you’re in a larger cave setting up a base is a wise decision to make. By base we mean, chest, crafting table, water source so you can come back and throw your resources in the chest so by any chance you die, you have some of them safe. Now you’re set to spawn in the cave.
- If you have a lot of inventory that you don’t even need, dig a three-block hole and then throw your inventory in there. Once you’ve done, place a block on top.
Minecraft is a game with infinite possibilities. Every time you play, you’ll get a whole new scene. Though, these hack in minecraft will make your mining and transversing experience much smoother.
