Steps Edit

Part One of Six:
Buildings and Structures Edit

Build a labyrinth. You can build an underground labyrinth for yourself or even people on your server. If you want to make it extra scary, get a Herobrine mod and summon him in the labyrinth. We cannot be held accountable for what may or may not appear in your pants!

Build the Temple of Mi'i. Make a temple to worship yourself! Of course, you can build a temple or church to anyone you want, but it's also fun to build one for yourself.

Build an interstate. Clever Minecrafters have figured out how to use a minecart system to build a high speed "interstate". Experiment with building your own scenic drive or look up plans online.

Make a castle. Of course, the first thing you build in Minecraft is a shelter. so what better way to show that you've mastered the game than to build an epic castle? Bonus points for putting it somewhere cool, like on a mountain.

Build a farm. Basic mob farming is useful, but boring. A more interesting way to go about it is to do mob breeding. Lots of tutorials can be found online for mob breeding, so find one that works for you.

Build a sky fortress. Start flying up in the air and building a majestic sky home! It doesn't need to be just a house, it can be a castle. No tutorials are needed for this great building, you just need some creativity and skills!

Build a museum. Museums are very fun and easy to build. Look at pictures online that match what you're looking for, or look at official plans of museums!

Build miniature games. For example, make versions of Five Nights at Freddy's or Clash of Clans!

Go on an adventure! Bilbo Baggins went on an adventure and now it's your turn. Build a complex world with all the standard fantasy environments, like a haunted forest or a dangerous mountain. When you're done, you can go on your own epic quest and write about your adventures.

Build a pirate ship and island. Build yourself a water environment with a big island, a pirate port complete with pub, and a pirate ship out on the high seas! You can even put interesting things on your island, like a Temple of Doom.

Build a spaceship and space. Use obsidian blocks in creative mode to create a huge black space, then use plans or codes to generate huge spheres to make the planets. You can then make a spaceship floating between the planets to live in.
  • Fill a glass sphere with lava to make a sun!

Build a volcano. Make a huge volcano filled with lava. Bonus points if you build yourself an evil lair under the volcano. Glass can be used to hold back the lava and you can use it for lighting inside your lair.

Build massive trees filled with buildings. Build Avatar style trees in the biggest scale you can, and then fill the roots, trunk, and branches with homes and pathways. Then invite your friends over to have an Ewok style party!

Recreate national monuments. Create elaborate and detailed recreations of cool national monuments, attractions, and other famous buildings and sights. Set them up so that your players or family members can go on a trip around the world in just a few minutes if they want to.

Make the environments from your favorite TV show. Take inspiration from your favorite TV show and build your interpretation of the environment or setting of the story. You can build the high school from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or Finn's tree house from Adventure Time, for example.

Recreate your city or neighborhood. Recreate a walkable version of the neighborhood where you grew up. Include your school, local parks, your house, and other places where you spent a lot of time.

Create the setting from your favorite book. Really stretch your imagination and recreate the environment from your favorite books. Make the Lonely Mountain from the

Hobbit, or the wacky hills of a Doctor Suess book. Let your creativity fly!

Make your room. Take a single room or other small space and then recreate it on a grand scale. Make 1 block equal to 1-2". This will result in Skyscraper-sized doors. If you want, you can build yourself a home in the walls and live like a Borrower!

  • Make a house first. Then make a reception: Put some fences, 3 by 3 with a hole in the middle. Get an anvil and spawn villager egg, rename the villager to Receptionist. Spawn him in the hole, and once your cursor/something else touches him, you will see a tag named Receptionist. Either that, or you could be the receptionist. Then make more floors with flats/tiny houses with a crafting table, furnace, bed and chest. Then add the roof, some lights and a garden. You can also name the hotel with a sign. Put it above the door.

Answered by wikiHow Contributor
