I am new to the game, and enjoying it so far. I love reading as much info as I can about most topics , and games are no exception. I have read about mining efficiency, and that lays 12-14 are great, unless lapis is desired, then 14-15 is optimal. My question is how do I know where I am in the layers? Do I just dig to bedrock & once I see the first layer (the sporadic bedrock layers) count up from that as layer 1?
That does not seem correct, but I am new, so...
If it is an addon thing that is required to know where you are, is there non-addon way to get a good idea of where you are?
If you press F3 on your keyboard (For some you may have to hold FN while doing this) text and some graphs will pop-up on your screen. If you look in the top-left, where a lot of numbers and text are, you should see something like:
X : 323.128935719823743
Y : 15.0187239857120092
Z : -177.93251829735879
(The numbers are going to be different)
These three numbers are called your coordinates. The X and the Z values represent the north/south and the east/west directions from the origin of the map (0,0) you are currently at. The Y value shows the elevation, or layer, you are at. This can help you determine which layer you are at.
