that you need to try and hey according to the youtube gods no one's ever subscribed to the channel using their left pinky so if you're up to that challenge point your fifth digit at that red sub button below it's free and it helps out a ton maybe you've heard this before but you can't sleep now there's monsters nearby but when you look around don't see any enter the monster under your bed see if you dig a two block hole underneath a bed add in a daylight sensor and then place an armor stand on top it'll be just the right height to see the eyes of the monster head peek through right here which is a good way to startle anyone who walks into your guest bedroom now that 1.19 is out you'll want to get yourself a frog like farm because it turns out these things are perfect for paper lanterns simply place them sideways and these will fit right into place especially if you had a fence on top and a button underneath like this user did then it'll look like it's actually stuck on the pole nice touch why does this river look better than this one well even though they're both filled with water what's underneath that water makes all the difference and as we can surely see here if you use blue blocks in the lake bed you get a much prettier more vibrant body of...

now

minecraft

already has a globe in the cartography table but compared to this one that we're gonna

build

that's not even on the same level sure enough by using the commands that user jmh mirror lays out we can use an armor stand with a special player head to slowly rotate in place on our desk and while the commands to do it look pretty scary don't worry all you need to know is that this one summons in the globe armor stand and then this one when put in the repeating command block will rotate that armor stand like so bridges are nothing new to

minecraft

but a rusty bridge that's something fresh ironically so i guess with the help of the new mangrove roots we can make these cool metal bridges to connect parts of your industrial base and while i wouldn't suggest stepping on top of it without a tetanus shot it does make for a new staple to a post-apocalyptic

build

enrods are an expensive light source but when used like this it might be worth the splurge by just placing these horizontally we can line the sides with leathers make a sleek looking fluorescent light and as this post notes this could look great when you place it above a couple of your crops especially because the particle effects will make it look like it's watering them adding both function and form to the farm

usually have branches so let's fix that with the help of hidden armor stands you can add in little log details to your tree trunks that way you don't have to wait for a big oak tree to grow before you get any branches for yourself

minecraft

torches don't burn out but we can make it look like they do by simply using redstone torches instead we can power these to make a really cool effect for your next mine shaft and considering the only other way to get torches to burn out is to play on the april fool's release of

minecraft

2.0 i'd say this is a step up for sure now you probably don't want to sit on a campfire but extinguish it and add some signs like so now we've got ourselves a bench that's worth trying and while that's a solid start what i love about this example is the little bit of path land in front of the bench which makes it look like it's stamped down from all the people who sat there bringing it all together to make this perfect for a future park at first shroom lights and dead coral don't seem to have anything in common but when you place them side by side you'll recognize that a dead bubble coral block looks like a depleted shroom light so if you want to make it look like part of your store's light up sign burnt out this is easily the best way to do that if you're matpat you'll want to pay attention to this one because as you can see we've put some familiar animatronics into

beasts and feasts and shows all we need are some armor stands posed the right way to make one of these creepy characters right in vanilla just make sure you sleep after you

build

them i wouldn't want to risk a night shift around these be careful with this because if you stare too closely it might just hurt your head because what we've done here with clay's terracotta is definitely confusing but if you peek behind these stairs you'll notice that it's just magenta glazed terracotta placed in a certain way which if we then cover up can make the illusion of a circle from the front my graph chests are functional but they're not always the best looking in bulk so by instead using blocks like beehives and looms we can make these believable looking piles of boxes or hey use barrels and you can still even use them for storage in

minecraft

you don't need to water your plants but maybe we should have see if you mix in the new mangrove roots we can make a convincing set of dead or dying plants and honestly i think this adds in a lot of personality to your

build

ing your house out of melon but this might make you reconsider because strangely enough if you use melon blocks as a texture for your walls it'll look like a wallpaper ripped straight out of the 60s and hey mix in some green furniture this will actually start to look kind of nice even if it is a little dated see this splash of color in...
the water well this here is a life preserver and it's so easy to

build

i'm sure you can tell how to do it just by looking at it but what really goes the extra mile here is that if you play on bedrock you can tie your boat to a lead and attach it to a fence underneath the ring of glass making it look like it's actually attached to the life preserver tridents actually have a use in

build

ing don't believe me well take a look at this by simply throwing a trident into place on a flower pot we can make our very own mop to put on display is it expensive sure but going the extra mile for details is always worth it in my eyes how do we get this fish inside this aquarium well listen close because it's a weird set of steps see if you start with a chest like so add a glass block on top and then lay out an item frame with a map in the bottom we can get the hitbox in such a way where if you put a bucket of fish right here it'll stay alive inside of the glass block giving us a proper functioning fishbowl let's make this tiny bird bath because for as cute as this looks it's actually just as simple to

build

all we need to do is waterlog a slab then add in four signs to both block the water and add a lip to the bath bowl and just like that we've got the perfect spot for your parrots to hang out and chill literally take a look at these walls now from afar nothing looks too out of the ordinary but up close you'll notice that we actually did the unthinkable...
we used walls as walls and honestly i'm amazed it isn't more popular to do this you get more space for your interior and it's cheaper than just using full regular blocks both of which make this worth a try on your next base with the help of the new mangrove planks we can

build

something like this i'm so sorry but if you want to

build

this suspicious statue in your own world all you need are some mangrove slabs two doors and a trapdoor to cover up the block for the center visor plus if you partner this with the new skulk blocks that will really make this look out of this world you might not notice it at first but down here we've added a special room trim to the walls of the house and how do we do this well the answer comes down to item frames but not how you'd think but rather if you use an item frame to mark your spot and then type in this command you can summon a falling sand entity right into place and the end result is pretty convincing when you're making a big

build

sometimes the littlest details can go a long way and for that i think particle effects definitely fit the bill and while there are plenty of existing ones to put on display with command blocks that doesn't stop us from making our own for example take this vat of acid by itself it looks pretty bland more like a green pool than anything else but add some invisible armor stands into position with slime blocks on their head and now we've got a bubbling mixture fit for a...
radiation warning or hey do what these folks did and add some custom leaves falling off your cherry tree when you're

build

ing something as grandiose as a volcano every detail helps to sell the image and nothing is more disappointing than a mediocre mordor so to kick your lava

build

s up a notch this user has a great solution by using an open fence skate we can separate our lava from the campfire but still have the smoke bill about the top and that folks adds a great particle effect to any lava lakes you plan on adding especially when you partner with hay bales one of the many challenges in the

build

ing community is how do you make circles in a game made of blocks now the simple answer should be you can't but it doesn't stop

build

ing hopefuls for making the illusion so while everyone else looks for pixel arts circle guides and generators let's deviate and use stairs instead with an example like so we can make a ring design inside of your base's wall now we'll just have to wait until mumbo turns this into a door when it comes to decorating your walls

minecraft

has options but they're limited don't get me wrong paintings and map walls look great but they also tend to take up a chunk of space so for a smaller footprint without sacrifice and detail why not mix your banners and item frames to make a fully functional mob poster which i think gives you possibly the best way to label any of your mob farms going forward it can be a tough balance making...
your

build

look both run down and well made so instead of giving off the destruction vibe with tnt let's look elsewhere for our added details and in this case say we've got ourselves a pirate ship but just wool alone isn't selling it on the sails well stuff that very well in a crafting table to make some banners and the tattered look will be a lot more convincing going forward with how clean

minecraft

's textures can be it can often be tough to make something look weathered or destroyed take a ruined portal for example these are supposed to be burnt up and badly damaged but the regular stone brick doesn't always sell that so instead we could add some of the deep slate and blackstone variants to the mix and make charred and damaged stone to your

s which not only gives the blocks that are used in some personality but also helps your

to tell a story farms are a staple of

minecraft

design especially in survival but we're all used to fields of wheat carrots and beetroots this might be a stranger sight though sure enough we can take after this user and add in turtle shell helmets for something of a cabbage plant in your farmland just make sure you have the armor stands placed on a daylight sensor down below otherwise they won't have enough height to peek through the addition of glowing item frames was a huge revamp to how we display our items and the ability to make these item frames invisible is even more useful letting us do something like...
this where we turn our colorful concrete items into glow-in-the-dark blocks to place on your wall lush caves are one of the more beautiful additions to

minecraft

in recent years but as it turns out a good thing can get better because while all this green is a welcome change from the walls of stone nearby all it takes is a couple of giant mushrooms to make this site even prettier to see any mushrooms love the dark anyway so it makes logical sense too and for my money that's a win on all fronts for the

build

ing community the advent of glow ink sacks is a pretty big game changer and while the glow squid itself has been talked about to death its drop might actually give you some neat opportunities for instance with the ability to make text on signs glow-in-the-dark we could tuck some of these in a dark cave and add in some creepy atmospheric eyes in the darkness and as long as your visitors don't step too close this illusion should more than hold up fences and walls are commonplace in any

minecraft

build

you visit and while they're nice enough blocks to use i think we need to do better but luckily on bedrock that solution is super simple over here it's possible to put different buttons on top of the posts and while we can't do the same on java a bonus tip for there is that by adding string on top of walls you can make them into columns when we choose to adding custom plants to your base can really improve a

build

just like that though not everyone is looking...
to sink the time into

build

ing a custom tree so why don't we start small and just improve your pumpkins and your jack-o-lanterns by throwing a sea pickle to the top of one of these we can add a nice little stem to the picture or hey candles could also do the same effect and either option will definitely step up your game next halloween armor stands not only let us display our armor but also use that armor as a decoration and this here is my favorite instance see while this looks like a regular chest to the outside world when you open it up we're treated to a proper golden treasure inside and the setup is surprisingly simple all we need to do is lay our armor stand on a block with a shorter hitbox in this case an enchantment table and then push a regular block and a chest into its place with a piston and from there what i love most about this is that the helmet fits right within the spot of the chest texture almost like it's meant to be

build

ing over water can be a real hassle after all since the liquid lacks a hitbox it's not exactly easy to

build

in the ocean and most of the time we have to start with a pillar from the lake bed to even place one block but thankfully we have lily pads for a better alternative and using these we can start from the surface instead of diving deep and that alone can save us a bunch of time on any and all future pirate

build

s sometimes it pays to have a different perspective so while a block might look one way while it's facing...
you if you flip it around it might just be used in an entirely different way so sure you could use a lectern as just that but if you rotate it around 180 degrees then it makes for a fancy banister to use on your staircase between glass panes tinted glass and 16 dyes to choose from windows have plenty of variety but while those blocks are great they don't exactly have a small footprint so if you're looking to make a detailed window without all the space that it takes up why not just bust out some blue banners like such add white lines for shading and a frame of choice and the result will be something pretty special while

minecraft

signs allow you to use emojis and unicode characters those don't exactly have detail so to spice up your signage at the next shop why not mix together item frames and signs to do the trick since these can overlap we can both denote and show the item in question and i've gotta say that adds a nice bit of clarity to your next potion shop and from there it's up to you to choose what to sell when you're overlaying blocks in a

build

you've not only got to consider the texture on top but also the background let me explain with this scenario say you've got a set of vines climbing along the stone wall it looks fine but if we add some copper ore to the backdrop then it gives off the illusion of flowers on the vines and it's the little things like this that definitely help to show that you're considering all parts of the...

build

whether through command blocks or mods some pros in the community have made functional mirrors in game but the rest of us might want something a bit more possible in survival and in that case we can make a fairly convincing glass effect utilizing banners as such i mean i wouldn't use these to check your hair but that's what the f5 keys for and while a waving mirror might be weird it looks a lot better than just some glass blocks

minecraft

swamps are set for a lot of change and with that comes plenty of new plants to see however that doesn't mean we can't add in a few of our own so until they're announced why not fake it with this cocktail creation all you need to do is place two support blocks lay out your brown candles and then replace the support with a plant to your choice and it's definitely a way to take your sugar cane to the next level as we've talked about in the past armor stands are entities and with those properties we can get some interesting results for instance why not overlap their hitboxes and score some extra detail on a

build

after all we can place as much of these in a single space as we want so that gives us free reign to have our armor stands for both the head and helmet in the same display when it comes to showing off your stuff these item frames are the best that we've got though if you go through the effort to make a handwritten novel then something tells me that this doesn't do it justice so instead why not...
fashion something out of a display case like so look at this is super cheap only asking for a lectern and a dyed piece of glass but with that we can have ourselves a way to show off your manifesto at its best though steve's technology isn't exactly high tech so if you're tired of the dark ages and want to bring your realm into the information age why not try this by throwing a gradient banner like this on a shield you can get a pretty convincing cell phone when it's placed in item frame and while i doubt the t-mobile has coverage on your server this might be a nifty detail to add to your next desk let's be honest waterfalls in

minecraft

are kind of lame here they're majestic and a force to be reckoned with but in game they barely even generate let alone seem powerful so to make your waterfalls a bit more cool maybe turn to the particle effects instead by adding campfires to the mix we can use the smoke to give off the illusion of roar and water sure it's a bit gray but from a distance i think this could sell the look pretty well when you're decorating your house then a couple of plants can really liven it up though while others settle for a standard sapling in the flower pot we can get a bit more creative and sure enough by using a bamboo stem and a glowberry bush we can make a cute tree to show off on your shelf and since the glow berries can extend off the roof this plane could really be about as tall as you like while engine debris has many...
cool uses i think its lava resistance is particularly interesting and it allows us to make this new kind of smelting see since our items won't melt into the flames we can pour lava over the top of the super smelter and have our hopper input hidden in the inferno then when you need to smell it for scrap throw a couple of debris in and accept your lava forge reward which is much cooler than just some simple furnace i'm gonna guess steve and alex aren't into high fashion i mean most of the time that you see them they're wearing the same clothes but maybe that's because they haven't had the options yet so to open them up to the world of couture why not get to making a closet throw some banner designs on an enrod pole like such and this wardrobe quickly becomes something worth

build

ing in your next house sometimes the hidden details can make all the difference and nowhere is that more true than the debug stick after using this command to get the tool we're able to rearrange the hitboxes of things like fences and iron bars to get even better looks by themselves these decorations always do what they want to do but through some persuasion of the debug stick we can realign them back to our liking and from there the results are definitely a step up every

build

er loves half slabs but while these are great they're not ubiquitous meaning we're fairly limited in the half steps we can use or so you thought since we take after this user we can actually use...
beds as a substitute see all it takes is place in one of the 16 bed types and then right clicking it with a debug stick to get something of a colorful slab to use and sure the feet might be a giveaway from this angle but anywhere else the illusion does the trick now i'll be honest i never figured anvils to be much good for decorating but when we start using these for a floor pattern then it's a different story so while you probably need a decent iron farm to pull this off it is cool to know that with their different hitboxes these blocks can let us

build

something special as we know

minecraft

doesn't allow for leaves to change the season which is fine if you want an evergreen but it means our maple trees and cherry blossoms are out of luck but thankfully the coral can help us out as you can see by using commands to set up certain coral plants like so we can create some really beautiful leaves to coat our trees and while you'll need to set the world so that the coral doesn't decay i think the results are worth it as it's clear to see

minecraft

is game made blocks which is why it's such a cursed sight to see a circle like so but even if it breaks mojang's unspoken rules there are plenty of cool things that we can still do with these as is the way that we pull these off is by summoning a bunch of armor stands around a relative position and then to give that subtle curve we have them face towards the center point and then give us that smoothed out...
area and while mr cat is showing off how to make one of these into a pool of water we could also just as well make a tire swing out of these and both of which are plenty cool to see recently

minecraft

's always got a new look and while that's great especially for helping out colorblind players we can push this redesign even further see by merging armor sets with our stone blocks we can make our very own kinds of ores within the cave systems are they convincing not necessarily but they do add a fun bit of variation to the dark depths

minecraft

has plenty of ways to show off your gear and let's be honest by this point they're a bit stale so to upgrade our presentation we'll have to combine a few methods and i think this helmet display does just that see while others settle for just an armor stand we can go that extra mile by pushing a couple of these blocks into the entity and from there we score a glass case right for showing off your netherride helmet

minecraft

transportation is a tried and tested topic but if you're not worried about the fastest way to travel then why not opt for some more style and for that you can't do much better than a bicycle through armor stands and partially submerged banners you can make a pretty convincing vehicle in your

minecraft

world or convincing until you try to bike somewhere because then not so much if you ask me it's fun to

build

things in

minecraft

that don't make sense at a first glance like take a look...
at this pond for example as it appears the stone pattern is placed off-center from the actual grid but what's actually happening is that we're using waterlogged stairs and slabs to keep those textures but then make the blocks her own way and while it's a fun surprise to pull in your friends i also think it looks quite nice as well if you don't have world edit loaded up then the fill command is the best you got and let's be honest it's not the most robust so we'll need to get creative to get the most out of it and luckily this seems to do the trick see if you were to

build

an irregular shape and then fill from layer two onwards with carpet then it will only stack where the pattern is and then you change the carpet for your block of choice and now enjoy the time that you've saved

minecraft

has come a long way from just the stone and oak buttons of the past but while the new additions don't add in new pulse links they do make a great candidate for detail take for example the stone wall by itself it's nothing too fancy but add in some of these colorful buttons and the thing becomes a convincing rock climbing wall or for those of you in creative concrete and invisible item frames should work just as well maybe even better one of the pain points in creative

build

ing is that you can't place a block free standing so if you mess up on a floating block you've got to

build

off of it just to replace the original so instead of that hassle...
maybe try this by holding a block in your offhand all it takes is hitting the left click and the right-click buttons at the same time to replace the freestanding block and then simple as that the mistake is fixed with 16 different dies to choose from

minecraft

's carpet collection clearly has a lot of variety but just in color not so much in texture so if you're looking for a bit more depth to your floor's rug maybe try this instead through the help of waterlogged slabs we can keep the coral alive to make fuzzy counterparts to the usual carpets granted there's not as many colors to choose from but the first impression of seeing this on your floor more than makes up for that with a 1.17 update item frames got a big change in the form of glow ink sacks and while those help a lot maybe you're looking for another color instead of illumination on your tools well we might have the upgrading need see if we mix banners and post armor stance together in creative mode we can make functional frames so if your pickaxe deserves more color maybe it's time to roll out the red carpet as you'll see from any pro

build

er not everything has to be functional to have its place in the

build

and actually a lot of the admittedly pointless things in a

build

might do a lot for the aesthetic and i think this arcade machine is a good example of that now sure you're not going to be playing galagon the thing with the right painting you can get a cool display set up for your...
house's gaming room and as the channel beeston and feast and shows off all you need is some snow layers to line up the armor stands and then you'll have the perfect joysticks as well with the different item frame variants there are plenty of ways to display your stuff but understandably you might want something even more so in that case i should tell you about this way to encase your items in glass as i'm sure you guessed by tossing together our invisible armor stance within the glass block we can make something of a display case to put in our world which i think looks great it would definitely open up some nifty possibilities so whether you're

build

ing this to showcase items in a vending machine or a shop or you just want to snow globe around the holidays i think there's plenty of creativity this allows us to see by this point we're all plenty familiar with the grass block texture which means using this in a

build

can often feel tired at the very least underwhelming but fortunately we've got some blocks in recent years to help break up that monotony like why not add a strip of moss to the green in your yard to make it look mode or even just mixing in some green concrete powder here and there can help to texture those paths we've seen hundreds of times before while

minecraft

allows for logs and wood blocks to have different orientations the planks are a different story though to offset that pain we could just turn to a different path entirely...
sure enough the next time they go to

build

a dark oak wall maybe add some cartography tables for detail as you can see these have a vertical texture compared to the standard horizontal so until rotated planes become a base feature this might be your best bet ever since they were added back in 1.14 barrels have offered a chunk of options for how we built but it turns out that on bedrock we can do even more see as this post lays out we can use a mix of pistons and observers to earn ourselves a permanently open barrel and that means a whole new texture to use in our

build

s so if you don't have a debug stick this might be your next best pick if you've messed around with map making you're plenty familiar with the concept of custom player heads and while these can work fine on their own they get even cooler when we partner them with armor stance and my favorite example so would be this tiki totem pole as this user showed off on reddit we can mix together placed heads and armor stands to add different scales into our tower which i think gives a really cool option for decorating your next jungle temple base and come to think of it this technique could also be used for some really convincing snowmen sometimes the blocks that you need can be the least expected for example why would you ever think to mix basalt and dead coral but when you

build

them like so we can make a very cool looking stone tree and while these do make good candidates for the alex cass's cobblestone...
trees another stone worth trying is using the drip stone blocks as a new bark texture when you think of using signs and

build

ing you're probably picturing something like this but folks that's only scratched on the surface and it turns out that even without text these could be an invaluable resource to add for instance look at these columns what would have been simple stacks of blocks become something much more upscale when we add signs for detail and i think when you're able to use something as cheap as a sign to level up your

build

it's a no-brainer to add every now and then a simple trick is all you need so while i'm sure your harbor already looks great wouldn't it look just that little bit better if you switched the sunken oak logs for dark oak instead that way the darker texture would make the logs look water worn and wet adding that little bit of character to your

build

it's hard to say anything in

minecraft

really looks comfy i mean with so many straight lines and hard edges even the beds look uninviting and while there's only so much we can do to fix that maybe we can start by adding a few of these pillows to your local lounge and while these might not exactly be the throw pillows we see in our day to day at least they're still made of wool if you think about it composters would make for great barrels at least they would if we could fill them with something other than the pods of texture but luckily with armor stands we don't...
have to give up on that wooden barrel dream rather if we chuck one of these statues inside the hitbox and throw block on its head we can make a custom barrel filled with our choice and i think that's better than this trapdoor option in one key way we can have varying heights of liquid which basically lets us create our own cauldrons with so many people doing hundred day challenges it's gotta get tough to keep track of the days so to help with that or at least look like you're helping with that why don't we check our calendar over here sure it's a far cry from functional but to beat that you could tuck a day counter system like such underneath and bam but even without that it sure does look nice as much as i love using armor stains when they're invisible i think it is worth giving credit to the item itself after all they do share the same texture with oak planks which means that we can use these for some pretty natural looking illusions and as green and others have shown we can use that with the fact that they behave as entities to get some impressive results like so where we place a bunch of these armor stands at different rotations within the same block and then we can use their necks and shoulders as the base for a campfire and while it might not cook medium rare it does offer up a smaller more subtle choice compared to its bigger cousin jack-o-lanterns are a classic bit of

minecraft

lighting but they're so classic that there's really no room...
for creativity here though thanks to invisible glowing item frames we can use map art to make our very own custom designs and as this user shows off that opens up a lot of possibilities so if you're tired of having the same decorations as everyone else this should help to set you apart come next halloween space travel is a common goal down here on earth and while it's not possible in

minecraft

without mods this might let us pretend that it is as you'll notice the end portal texture makes for a convincing starry background so when you get some of these underneath the floor you can give the impression that you're stationed above the stars and i think that's a detail worth using in any future sci-fi maps you plan on making when it comes to storing items

minecraft

's got plenty of options but displaying those items that's a bit more limited might i suggest campfires now sure when they're lit these things can only keep the items on for so long but as soon as you put out that fire they'll stay in place so if you want a shelf for your stakes i guess this does the trick unlike many other games

minecraft

doesn't overload you with loading screens but the ones that it does have are somewhat basic so if you're fed up but waiting on this screen then i guess you could always wait on this screen instead using the banner sway animation it's possible to make a fully functioning loading screen within your world and weirder yet is that even if you...
reload the chunks or restart the save they still flow the same way i'm sure we've all wanted x-ray vision at some point and while some players get it through questionable methods there are some interesting ways to do this in the base game and this option using armor stands definitely fits that bill see when an armor stand holds a glass block the transparency is rendered in a weird way meaning that certain things don't show up when we see through the glass and that allows us to see through oceans or even paintings on a wall so while it's not a perfect replacement for the ocarina of time lens and truth i will say that if you're in the bedrock edition this could make for a fun puzzle to add into your maps

minecraft

has plenty of mobs to witness in the base game but once you've played as much as we have these things are old hat so if you're tired of foxes that look like this then maybe this is worth a shot see by using armor stands aligned like such we can use much smaller versions of the blocks to create our own special sculptures and the best part is that all of these are possible without using mods so while the complexity on display can clearly vary there's still plenty of creativity to see and while i can only imagine the headache would require to painstakingly lay out each piece of this tiger i also can't argue that the results are quite special mine shafts add a classic bit of detail to the

minecraft

caves but while they work when...
they're three blocks wide pulling off a two by two does not seem as possible or at least it wouldn't if we didn't have the debug stick but using one of these we can fix our fences to only connect along the walls meaning we fashion a center gap just the same did you ever notice that the spruce door and the spruce trap doors look eerily similar well using that we can place two trap doors on the floor and make the illusion of a torn down or damaged front door and funnily enough this should actually keep out adult zombies better than the actual door anyway waterlogged slabs can be a real ace up your sleeve because what everyone sees as a normal block actually has the same properties as a water source so while sure we can't place lily pads on dry land if we waterlog a slab in that floor then we can play by our own rules so to anyone looking to open up their aquatic details to the landlubbers on shore this might just be your golden opportunity

minecraft

has plenty of mini games to see but a lot of those are only possible with command blocks and special plugins so for something better suited for survival these item frames are solid pick since all it takes is a grid like so and the right set of items to make our very own functional chessboard and while it doesn't look quite like the queen's gambit i do think there's enough here to practice the principles little details can go a long way to beefing up your

so while your friend might just stop

a nice looking base you went the extra step with this as you can see invisible item frames are the solution throw a couple banners into place and it can add a fun detail to any mailbox that you place outside your house it's not exactly a letter from hogwarts but the thought still counts beacons are a sight we're all familiar with but maybe not like this though even if this seems cursed the tech to pull it off is surprisingly simple see beacons are transparent blocks meaning beacon beams can pass through the beacons so if you have the spare blocks on hand you can make something of a custom beacon in vanilla and while this does wind up being a pretty expensive facade the results are definitely unique and it might be the perfect prank for your next friend's visit clearly armor stands can be used for some pretty amazing things and with the help of command blocks we can push that even further see all of these nvt data changes that we do like so we could automate with repeating commands meaning we can turn an armor stand like this into a working ceiling fan which i'll fully admit seems ridiculous but i also can't argue with the results and while this option with swords maybe takes the term propeller blades a bit too literally we could just as well use shields like this example now on first glance arrows might not seem too helpful for

touch of the subscribe button you can stay in the loop for more videos with tips and tricks like this one and funnily enough by just using trapdoors like so we can add a convincing railing to the

build

with each new update mojang gives us in the

build

ing community something to play around with and for the wild update that's currently the addition of skulk and since the skulk veins function like vines we can completely re-imagine our existing textures for instance we can take after this user and make our own blue variant of the standard magma block even though

minecraft

does have birds it's funny that the only eggs that we see hatching are turtle eggs and while i doubt that's changing any time soon we can't at least play pretend using this trick by throwing down your egg of choice on top of a bed of coral we can make a pretty convincing egg in a nest effect and hey if you can add a waterlogged slab then the coral sticks will have a lot more color as well clearly a little detail goes a long way so while it would be nice to add a potted plant to your

minecraft

house why stop there instead we could add something like vines to the outside of the leaves give it some much needed depth to the vegetation so if you're not already playing with something like vanilla tweaks bushy leaves add-on this might be a good alternative let's face it making a wall look interesting is none too straightforward but it's a problem we need to solve to avoid a boring

build

so...
to fix that we need to use different variants of the same texture like why have just an andesite wall that looks like this when we could use literal andesite walls to give something of a carved out illusion and by partnering those together with stair slabs and buttons we can give that lump of rock a lot more personality than it once had while hoppers definitely have their use if you don't have the iron on hand then the water is an obvious choice but hey just because we're dishing the metal doesn't have to keep us from being industrial on the contrary if we put these fluid dynamics inside of trapdoors like so we get both stylish and functional pipes to use in your world particles can do a lot for the atmosphere of your

build

but without the help of commands and survival they're not very easy to use though with hell from the crying obsidian block that might just be changed see by putting these in your roof they can fall through the trap doors and add some extra magic to your enchanting room which is a neat effect for sure while i double we'll get any kind of

craft style pipes in game anytime soon that doesn't mean that we can't play the part and for that our top candidate is the new copper lightning rods these are already perfect additions to any steampunk

but add some levers and the pipes come together themselves and if you got yourself a drowned farm the supplies are already there one of the inescapable truths in

minecraft

is that grass...
is a very different color map depending on the biome meaning if you place a green grass block from your inventory inside of a desert all you're gonna see is yellow and that's unfortunate or it was until the caves and cliffs update now with the help of the moss blocks and azalea leaves we can get green lush colors wherever we'd like and that'll definitely help your oasis to actually look like an oasis as of the nether update we've had the ability to put these chains to use in our world and while they're great they do seem a bit dainty and something tells me these frail things aren't carrying something as big as this anchor so let's swap in the grindstone instead as it turns out just alternating a couple of these in a pattern like so is enough to make a fairly convincing chain and i'd figure this is much better suited for carrying than just a couple of nuggets on an ingot campfires can be a plenty useful block to have in your base but even if you're not cooking you could always use these for their smoke effects and surprisingly that smoke can even move through blocks so by placing a loom on top of a campfire we can get a pretty solid vent effect to put to use

in a custom tree instead of a bone meal one is a quick way to improve your

but when it comes to adding branches on that tree it's a bit tougher so when the standard logs are a bit too big to use then fences might be the next best solution mixing in these as well as a...
combination of stairs and slabs can add a ton of detail and keep your scale on the smaller side how you light up a

build

can play a big part into its atmosphere and while torches are functional they're not exactly the most dramatic far from it so if you want to fix that these extra tall candles are a solid solution and whether you do this with a white candle on top of an end rod or green one on top of a potted bamboo the results of either should be a welcome improvement as we've shown sugarcane can be a valuable tool for decorating but its limitations can hold it back so if you're tired of only placing these reeds by water this might be a better option see all it takes is pushing a block into place with a piston to glitch out the plants and leave them standing there just the same at which point we can swap the water out for lava or any block for that matter and successfully avoid another one of mojang's rules when it comes to storing your stuff a chest mine cart maybe isn't your first pick but that might be our mistake since when we stack them like so we can turn these roller coaster rejects into proper working drawers and frankly i think that's a nice change of pace so while these can't store as much of the double chest that we're used to they do offer a storage solution that shows a bit more effort than just a standard barrel if we cross together multiple armor stands and pose their arms in a certain way we can then add in leaves to get...
something of a smaller tree and while this is much easier to pull off in bedrock where they have the arms by default with a data pack this is plenty possible in all versions as any game designer knows it isn't always easy to get the players to follow the correct path and more often than not when someone gets lost they also get frustrated and that's the last thing we want so to help guide our players along the straight and narrow why not illuminate the path like so by chucking an armor stand with a helmet into a minecart we can clip the top of its noggin outside to give an animated motion to our road one of the major changes in the first part of the cave's enclose update was the revamp of ore textures and regardless of how you feel about them the new looks do offer up some new details and my favorite might just have to be the gold ore as some have pointed out by mixing these in the stone floor underneath a beehive you can make it look as if the honey is dripping out of an overstocked nest and i think that's just adorable hopper chains are an essential

across the fascination with making gaming computers with your gaming computer in a video game and while i think that whole thing is overwhelmingly meta i will say that this is the best candidate for a computer setup that i've seen by giving a black shield to an invisible armor stand in a justin's position like so we can get a pretty convincing monitor to put at your desk man at that point add in your mouse and rgb keyboard and that setup will be up and running having a furnace is a necessary evil for your survival base but just because we need to have one doesn't mean we need to be boring about how we place it and that's why something like this fireplace is the perfect solution that way the block isn't left out in the open but we can still right click the floor and use just the same alright this might seem a little strange what if i told you there's a way to show off your armor using an armor stand without ever seeing that armor stand let me explain see by using change in the invisible tag on our armor stands we can give off the impression that the armor set is hanging like so which i think looks quite nice and hey if you add boots to the set then it can look like shoes are lined up along the floor when you're trying to sell the atmosphere of a

scope can be a huge factor for impressing but just because we're scaling our size doesn't mean we need...
to scale back the detail so before you break ground in that mega base take after this user and alternate between something of a linear pattern to help your walls look good because in the end if you're going to spend the time to lay out this many blocks you might as well have it look good at any size that you look at it lanterns make a fantastic decoration for lighting up your base but that said they can be a pain to place and the restriction to only have these vertically supported would be a problem if we didn't have a glass pane see as others have pointed out a one by one glass pane is virtually unnoticeable meaning we can place our lanterns underneath these and have them somewhat floating and then use mobs and leads to add a string detail for the new lights trees are a great asset to add into any

but it's easy to feel limited to just the wood types mojang's added in though luckily all it takes is a bit of thinking to get a better solution i think these pointed drip stone spikes might just sell the illusion better and after you've got that add in a few blocks for coconuts and you've got something truly worth putting on any beach

throwing these on the underside of a lily pad we get a really slick way to subtly light up your pawns and lakes sometimes the blocks you least expect it can work out the best and that's definitely the case this castle gate now never in a million years would i have thought to use lecterns in this way but after seeing this post i'm well inclined to believe it's the right choice and honestly i think it looks even better than their intended purpose anyway as we know armor stands are entities not blocks which means there's a lot of opportunity that comes from overlapping multiple blocks and armor stand hitboxes and with the caves and cliffs update that came in the form of the telescope after aligning the legs of the armor stands just right we can fashion ourselves a base to then lay out our copper lightning rods and while i wouldn't recommend looking through this on a stormy day this might be a neat detail to add to your next observatory sometimes while

detail all while the item gets smaller bookshelves seem like a nice decoration but they can very quickly get repetitive and oftentimes the texture is just reserved for your level 30 enchantment room but this might be a way to break up that sameness apparently the loom texture when placed side by side makes for a pretty convincing empty bookshelf block so while it's a far cry from the variated textures we've seen something like vanilla tweaks i do think it's a step in the right direction chest organization isn't a fun business not only do you have to sort out all the items but then the item frames for labeling can be quite expensive as well it's a hassle i'm sure we're all hoping to avoid and to do that might suggest color coding instead with banners we could denote the chester barrel like so and all without wasting the item to put it inside the frame clearly banners can make for some fun designs but at a certain point you're limited by the canvas well in that scenario how about we ditch the one banner and instead supersize our operation with this we not only get more room for details but also quite the spectacle for any visitors coming by your base is it time consuming yeah there's no doubt about that but when the result looks this cool it might be worth it ladders definitely have their purpose but unlike the real world we can't just place one of these out in the open or we can't like this but if we use the trapdoor and ladder trick...
it's possible to not only have a freestanding ladder but also have it climbable on both sides simply place the ladders where possible on the trap doors and you can climb it just the same villagers can be very helpful but they're not exactly the easiest to direct and more often than not our trading halls turn into a peanut gallery but thankfully all it takes is a bit of honey to sweeten that deal see when placed on top of this the mobs can't manage to jump out so from that point you can tuck them into the desk and make sure they stay there for the entire shift now a cool feature of banners is that if you right-click one with a map you're able to make a waypoint but taking that one further what if we didn't just make one of these but 100 of them that way we could form different routes along a map wall so if you're wanting to color code paths along your world this is a great way to do that sometimes you've got to make part of your base off limits which makes sense if you
