    Punch trees. Lots of trees.
    And make some doors. The things are handy.

    And, yeah, I'm fairly certain you need a tool to mine things or else it just won't give you your loot.

    Alright, thanks.

    I just don't know if it's worth actually putting doors in my base as they can't be removed from what I can tell and most bases are temporary.

    Minecraft is a nearly infinite world, people don't just stay in one place?
    Unless I'm getting this wrong.

    Do people make one shelter and explore? How do they find the shelter once they venture off?

    I've been making small, temporary shelters for night. Then just aimlessly exploring during the day.

    Hi guys, I'm new here. Hate to leech on this first post, but I do hope to contribute something in the future.
    I've learned about Minecraft from Face-Punch a few days ago.

    Ever since I have been watching live streams and videos (like SeaNanners' LP), and I must say this game looks amazing.
    I just purchased Premium yesterday and I can't say I'm disappointed.

    I just want some pointers. I've seen a few other threads but I already knew about the tips given there.

    Basically I just want to know how to start off?
    I usually go get wood and create a shovel and pick and gather as many resources as possible and then make a make-shift home as soon as the sun starts going down. Seems to work good but after I go out when the sun comes back up I always get surprise butt secks from the Creepers and Spiders that seem not to die from the sunlight.

    Aside from that I also have a couple of questions.
    I noticed I get Coal from Coal-Blocks if I mine them with a pick, but not with my hands. Is this by game code or is it just a coincidence?

    Also, are there any good tips to find Natural Caves? I saw someone exploring a huge natural cave on a Live-Stream and it looked like a lot of fun.
    I've only found one but it was quite small and only had some coal. Then I jetted as the ambiance music in dark caves is quite scary if I do say so myself.

    I would like to find one of those caves that take hours to fully explore, as I dislike having to sit in a room doing nothing during the night for lack of resources to build proper weapons.

    One last question: The inventory in Survival-Multiplayer still doesn't save once you logoff, correct?
    I would like to play some with my friends but I don't want to build just to have everything disappear once we leave.

    Any tips would be quite appreciated.
    Again, I apologize that my first post is a leech post. I don't normally do this, just want to get into the game properly. :smile.gif:
