Do you have any ideas about the fastes way to find stronger matrials then stone.Like redstone,iron,gold,etc.
Your best bet is to either go spelunking or digging your own mine. There are a bunch of threads on here about the best mining techniques; if you are just starting out, look up "strip mine". Try to make sure you are mining at or below sea level (preferably below).
There are a few ways... I'll just mention 2.
1. Search for a Ravine.
2. Jump in the ravine (make sure you jump in 2-3 blocks deep water, go down using water, using fly-cheats, or using creative-mode)
3. And you should find a few cave entrances and a lot of ores (I once found around 15 veins of iron in a ravine, along with 4 veins of gold and 25-30 veins of coal)
1. Dig a hole
2. Go branchmining*
3. And you should find a lot of ores, not as many as Way 1 but whatever... Some people like to dig for their stuff.
* Is digging tunnels while staying at the same height...
Tip: Press F3, and the Y-coordinate is the layer you're on.
Coal: Everywhere in the ground
Iron: Layer 64 and below (I would prefer branchmining at layer 45-55 to avoid accidently digging to the surface)
Gold: Layer 32 and below (I did read somewhere that layers 28-32 have more gold than other layers... Not sure if this is true)
Redstone: Layer 16 and below (I prefer branchmining at layer 12-16 too avoid the many lavalakes at layer 9/10)
Lapis Lazuli: Layer 32 and below
Diamond: Layer 16 and below (I prefer branchmining at layer 12-16 too avoid the many lavalakes at layer 9/10)
for one thing, why is this a question? for another thing, go deeper. if you want a fun way, explore deep caves. however, if you want an efficient way, look up a branch mining tutorial, and make one at layer 16
Explore caves. Grab every ore you see in the walls. You'll end up with at least 2 stacks of iron and coal in the end. Easiest and quickest way to get iron. Gold, diamond, and redstone are much deeper down in cave systems.
