    glad to see this game gettin' some Gdar love. I've been with it since it was free and there wasn't any survival. I love how much it's grown and I'm glad you guys like it too.

    when i first heard of his game, i was thinking who would play this POS. then i tried it out, and haven't stopped playing lol

    As much as I love this game, this article is really stupid and unnecessary. I find most tutorials on this game to be quite ridiculous as Helen Keller could figure it out. (:

    Spiders don't set fire at day time. They just become passive

    As of the 1.4 Beta update, the default inventory key is now E, so you might want to change that so as to not confuse anyone. All around a good guide, but another useful item for beginners is a bed. It allows you to skip through the night so you don't have to just sit there.

    Might want to add wolves, beds, and such. Those would be confusing. Also, the optimal place for diamond mining. Between layers 11 and 16, that is. (layer 5 is the highest layer of bedrock).

    You mentioned that torches will become temporary, but only newly made ones. All pre-existing torches will be converted to lanterns, which are permanent, when the update comes.

    I'd read GamesRadar first after waking from a coma. Promise <3

    Also, the bedrock isn't indestructible. It is possible to destroy it using massive amounts of TNT, which will proceed to crash the game.

    About time GR got on the Minecraft bandwagon. If you want a more in depth look at the first day in Minecraft, here's a first-person account in the style of a diary... http://thelonelywizards.com/2010/10/17/minecraft/

    *sigh* i wanna play it. i really do. but i'm afraid of losing SO much time to it.
  • Vitreosity - April 7, 2011 11:20 p.m.

    Actually, Notch said that he's most likely dropped the idea of lanterns. Originally, the plan was to have torches burn out and need re-lighting from Flint+Steel, but in a series of tweets, he said that he just didn't like the idea that much any more.

    You bastards, do you know what you've done? The lack of a beginner's guide was the only thing keeping this out of my veins. NooooOOOOoooOOOO
  • AlpineGuy - April 8, 2011 12:25 a.m.

    Gurren Lagann reference FTW. This is a great beginner's guide. It makes me want to jump on the bandwagon just a little more, but I really can't afford to waste that much time!
  • JHONNYOHH - April 8, 2011 12:35 a.m.

    "OH JESUS OH FUCK" That correctly describes how I feel when I see a creeper! haha great article guys, I was wondering when you'd get the chance to do this <3

    Page 2 paragraph 3: You do not get stone blocks from mining stone, you get cobblestone.

    Nice guide for beginners, when I started I also made a floating castle hours in the sky haha. I learned all my Minecraft knowledge from "the Yogscast" videos on Youtube, their channel is called "BlueXephos." I recommend their Multiplayer survival series-very funny. Sorry if that sounded like spam lol.

    wow an Aldous Huxley reference AND a Led Zeppepelin reference; props, you deserve a medal
