How to Survive The First Night in Minecraft
Tips on surviving the first night in Minecraft.
When you spawn, you are most likely near trees and wood is the first thing you want to get in the game.
When you spawn there are 3 options more or less to get through the first night.
1. Hope that you don’t die from creepers or other creepy monsters.
2. Live inside a cave with doors blocking.
3. Making a house.
You’ve got a limited amount of time to prepare yourself for the night. The best thing to do is to 2. Live inside a Cave.
To do this. Get some wood, and craft them into crates. http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Crafting
Here is a web page for reference. Use ctrl+F to find “Basic Recipes” to learn how to do Basic Crafting.
Then make crates into sticks then use crates and sticks to make an axe or pick-axe.
-> making an axe 1st. now you would want to get some wood to make crates to make a house. After doing that make an Pick-axe to mine for COAL. Important. Coal + sticks = Torches which gives you light at night other than just the moon. Then make a house with crates and use torches for light. You can also make a door if you want. To do so use the minecraftwiki http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Crafting Use Torches to light up your house.
-> making a pick-axe 1st. You would get some wood with bare hands, enough to make sticks and a pick-axe. After doing so find COAL near mountains etc, coal looks like stone but with black dots on it. You would wanna live in a cave. Mine through the mountain. Close up the cave with a door http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Crafting (recipe for door) and crates or just use stone. Use Torches to light up the cave.
-> OR JUST MAKE NOTHING AND HOPE THAT YOU SURVIVE THE FIRST NIGHT WITH NOTHING
