Looking to get better at survival mode? Here are 14 survival tips to master Minecraft.

1. Practice In Creative Mode​

You have a limitless supply of all blocks and materials in Creative mode. You won't have to bother about gathering materials or making anything. In Survival mode, constructing a complicated building is a time-consuming undertaking. To make things easier, go to Creative Mode.
  • In Creative mode, you won't be able to win any accomplishments or trophies. When a Survival mode game is converted to Creative mode if hacks are used, achievements and trophies are disabled. Make sure your Survival mode and Creative mode save files are kept separate.
  • In Minecraft, you can choose to construct a Flat World under "World Type" in the Game Settings menu when starting a new game. This results in a planet that is completely flat, with no trees, water, hills, mountains, or caverns. When designing structures, you might want to consider creating a flat planet. You won't have to bother about landscaping before you begin construction.

2. Examine Other Player's Builds​

Looking at other people's projects is one approach to acquire ideas and inspiration for a new Minecraft build. Other people's maps may be downloaded, and images and YouTube videos can be seen online. Take notice of the colour scheme they employ, as well as the sorts and locations of the blocks they employ. Pay attention to the construction of roofs, pillars, and furnishings. Examine the many sorts of blocks that are used to create various shapes and designs. Look at how the lighting is employed. Amass a library of reference materials for future constructions.

3. Draw Or Sketch Your Build​

It's a good idea to write your ideas on paper or make a model of them before you start creating an extensive Minecraft build. You may sketch a 3D model of your construction on paper using isometric paper. To make a rough model of your construction, you may use 3D modelling tools like Google SketchUp, Blender 3D, or TinkerCAD.

4. Choose A Colour Palette​

Before you begin constructing your construction, consider the colours you want to use. Having a couple complementary colours and one contrasting colour is a nice idea. For instance, you may paint the walls a brick-red tone with a few mild shades of red strewn around. Then, to contrast with the red, paint the roof an aqua-blue or emerald green tint.

5. Use Basic Blocks To Create The Foundations​

Start with basic bricks in bright colours while you're beginning building a structure. Build the fundamental form of your construction with them. Don't bother about slabs, stairs, or details for the time being. To get a sense of the shape and size, just create the majority of the building with simple blocks. Details can be added later.

6. Break Larger Shapes Into Smaller Shapes​

If you're building a mansion, for example, you may start by constructing a large rectangle the size of the residence. Then, on the front, draw a smaller rectangle where you want the entranceway to be. Then, on both sides where you want window wells, you may wish to cut out or add another smaller rectangle. Then you could opt to make a diagonal form around the roof or foundation's corners. After that, you might want to add some trim around all of the edges. Then, on top of all your rectangular forms, build a separate roof to create a complicated roof shape.

7. Use Various Blocks​

Don't utilise a single block type for all of your walls, such as cobblestone, wooden planks, or brinks. Maintain a complementary colour scheme, but employ a range of blocks with varied textures that contrast with one another. If you're going to utilise cobblestone, adding smooth stone around the doors and windows, or in between levels, could be a good idea. For the roof and/or trim, use a separate colour block. Also, give your walls some depth. Don't merely construct a level surface on each side. Trim the corners and windows with some trim. Arches surrounding doors and window seals below windows can be added.

8. Use Rows And Columns Of Blocks For Varied Roof Angles​

It's simple to make a roof with a 45-degree angle by stacking blocks one on top of the other. Shallower angles can be achieved by stacking blocks in rows of two or three. You may even create sharper angles by stacking blocks after two or three columns. Slabs and stair parts can also be used to modify the angle of a roof.

9. Make Inventive Use Of Doors, Fences, Slabs And Stairs​

You don't have to create steps out of stair components. You can create a countertop or table out of upside-down stair parts, for example. A tabletop can be made out of a trap door or a pressure plate. Trapdoors can also be used to build window curtains or chair armrests. Slabs can be used to create an overhang beneath a roof or to change the angle of a roof. You may make a variety of designs using slabs and slabs put at different angles. You may also build a pole out of fence posts or a hanging chandelier out of them. A single stair piece with two trap doors on opposite sides can be used to build a chair.

10. Learn The Physics Of Redstone​

Redstone serves as a source of energy or power in Minecraft. It may be utilised to create a variety of mechanical devices. Redstone may be used to create automated lighting and doors. You can also build a drawbridge or an elevator. Redstone may be used to create a variety of mechanisms in Minecraft. Redstone has even been utilised to create a working computer within Minecraft.

Towards the end of March, Epic Games stripped building from Fortnite. It was a dramatic change that essentially turned Fortnite into a completely different game. For the last five years, players in the popular battle royale game have completely relied on the ability to build to win their matches, even at the highest level of Fortnite esports. As the change washed over the world, gamers on a global scale were left wondering, why did Fortnite remove building?

Ultimately, it was a temporary change, with many believing it to be an April Fool’s Day prank. However, in response to a mixed reception to the change, Epic Games decided to split the difference entirely. Today, you have the option to play traditional Fortnite with building or strip out the mechanic entirely, playing with a boots-on-the-ground style of gaming. It’s the perfect solution to what was in equal parts a jubilant and devastating change to Fortnite.

Now, let’s answer another important question – is Fortnite better without building?
