The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
hello all, wanted to hear what nooby things you guys have done when you first got minecraft
i have made many mistakes on my first world, the first of them bieng:
i dug a trench around myself at night so 'mobs' couldn't harm me. it worked well for zombies, creepers and (suprisingly) spiders. then the skeleton showed me the cruel ways of a bow and arrow and knocked me into a pit of mobs.
my second mistake:
not lighting my mines. i was mining @lvl about 43 when a creeper appeared in one of my strip mines. scared the crap outta me and i ran up stairs sealed off my mine and NEVER used it again because there was a creeper down there.
so, what things did you do as a noob?
Well, I decided to dig straight down, fell into a dark mine no way back up cause I put one torch down and SURPRISE! a cute little creeper, then I saw my arms fly somewhere in the corner and the eerie words that read "Game Over" or whatever they said then, I don't remember that part.
Not knowing how to break blocks. I repeatedly clicked every block I saw.
Mistaking gravel for coal.
Building a dirt bunker.
Building a house made out of sand. TOTAL WASTE OF TIME!
Put torches in every single block of my dirt house.
I learned about essentially everything about Minecraft before I got it for the 360.
I had no real noob mistakes in my first world.
I suppose you could say I generated the world and took the chance of it lacking something (it did have everything, though)....
No matter how much research I did on the game back then when I was a noob, I still died and heres my most noobiest thing that everyone wouldn't do if their new and had prepared for it.
Very first world I was building my house and wasn't completed so night fall came and I went inside. I thought to myself I needed to get this house done or else. So I go outside and after 2 mins of construction BOOM! I was dead raged deleted the world and made a new one.
On my Pixel Art world (my first world created in 1.5 snapshots), I've accidentally launched myself in the air using TNT minecarts in creative. I switched to Survival and then *SPLAT* I died. This was my first world in the snapshots.
Well my first time my brother watched me play, he knew exactly what to do but of course I didn't. So, I explored for a while, I dug up a few bits of dirt and chopped some trees and I was just swamped by the beautiful scenery that I didn't really focus on building anything to survive my first night. Then when night time hit I just ran, screaming my head off and just kept running whilst trying to avoid all of the mobs that were spawning.
Of course I fell into a cave and just ended up jumping in some lava by accident!
