You can use the south-east rule, which works in all dimensions. Place 4 pieces of minecart track in a T shape, with the intersection piece last, and it will favor south or east. Do this twice, with the second T rotated 90 degrees from the first one, and you'll be able to uniquely identify which way is which.

Turn "show coordinates" on. Then just move around. The negative Z direction is North and the positive Z south.

A lot. 250 seconds, according to the wiki: Tool Time (s) By hand 250 Wooden 125 Stone 62.5 Iron 41.7 Golden 20.85 Diamond 9.4 Netherite 8.35 Times are for unenchanted tools as wielded by players with no status effects, measured in seconds. Also, it technically wouldn't be mining obsidian, just breaking the block, as you wouldn't obtain any obsidian ...

Trap design in Minecraft is nearly as complex as it is IRL. It's about presentation, and the mechanism. All traps will require you to prepare the field in advance, and to be able to do so undetected. Given that you're looking to destroy him and his items, I'd recommend being the bait, yourself. Here's a recent article with some ideas for reference: https://...

Obsidian takes 250 seconds to mine by hand, according to the wiki. These numbers are the same for Java and Bedrock editions. Keep in mind that mining obsidian by hand will drop nothing. Mining blocks when underwater takes 5 times as long when standing on the ground and 25 times as long when floating (see on the wiki), for a total of 1250 seconds (almost 21 ...

There are a few easy ways you can attempt that might fix this error: Check for corrupted data. Sometimes files can get corrupted on the Nintendo Switch and cause severe issues. You can fix this by going Data Management in Settings and clicking "Check for Corrupted Data". Reboot the console. Although this may seem ridiculously simple, it can ...

Rules of the server - as long as not contradicting Minecraft EULA - are set by the server's owner. And sometimes, on some servers they can be outright bizarre. So I wouldn't be surprised on some of them the first dragon is declared untouchable. What is much more common, though, is that the dragon has been killed already - and on a lot of SMPs, especially ...

The command you got was a Java Edition only command. This will not be able to work because Bedrock Edition has a drastically different command format. The issue you found in your image was one of the differences. Unlike JE, BE prohibits namespace values like minecraft: in item names. You must remove them, and also player_head is invalid, the correct ID is ...

You're probably most confined by thinking in terms of other games. Minecraft requires you to break some mental barriers. First off, Netherrack is very soft. Never feel confined by it, just dig your way through. Any huge gaps can be bridged through. If you have a high drop, riding off a cliff in a boat cancels the damage (usually...). If you have enderpearls, ...

No, it doesn't matter how many times you kill the ender dragon. You can find an almost unlimited amount of elytra, but it is very difficult, as end cities spawn differently then other generated structures, using a random number generator to decide whether they should spawn. This is confirmed from the wiki, as it doesn't state anything about how elytra relate ...

This is a bit of a complex way to kill the slimes, but it technically should work. Set your render distance to one chunk. By doing this, you will be able to move slightly faster while doing everything after this, as it won’t render all the slimes. Place down a command block. Make this command block a repeating one and enter this command: /kill @e[type=...

No, your friend playing with the same seed will not affect future chunks on your world.

Get a shulker box in creative place the item you want to duplicate in it also grab a pickaxe and place down the shulker box and put the item you want to duplicate in it go to survival then mine the shulker then go back to creative and then you can place the shulker as many times as you want with the items in it

ExpertCoder14 answer works with a few tweaks! First: converting to .zip via renaming seems to break the files (the UMCE didn't want to open them anyway) Instead what you can do is use 7zip, which can extract .mcworld directly From there follow the instruction to change the tag, save. You also cannot rezip it and convert it the other way, it also didn't work (...

The Wiki also states: Other jump strengths can be found in bred mules, depending on the statistics of the parents (as explained later)." Bred mules are different from egg spawned mules is what that means. Bred mules stats can vary, but I still haven't figured out the limit yet either. I can tell you it's not in the wiki though.

It's possible. You want a command to execute on a failed detection, so you'll have to chain that command to a different block that scans the block doing the detecting, and compares it to an identical one that is intended to always fail to detect.. I'll try to explain.. Say you have a command block that is trying to detect something at ~ ~1 ~ but it finds no ...

In addition to the excellent suggestions by William Walker III about the setup, something else I'd recommend is TNT Minecarts. The main weakness of a TNT trap is that the amount of time required to actually detonate may allow your target to escape by blocking it off or by shielding in time. However, TNT Minecarts explode the instant they hit the ground if ...

What I normally do is put all my hidden functions in a folder (I called mine back) so then the function becomes /function back/myfunction Then just tell the person not to run those or something. What you are asking for I do not believe is directly possible.

Here is just "an item": execute @e[type=item] ~ ~ ~ scoreboard players add @p MYOBJ 1 kill @e[type=item] Or for an item named Apple: execute @e[type=item,name="Apple"] ~ ~ ~ scoreboard players add @p MYOBJ 1 kill @e[type=item,name="Apple"] The first command should be in a repeating always active command block and the second ...

As you said you downloaded the Geyser.jar file, first of all, you will not be able to add geyser to the your as you did not make a spigot server, and geyser is a spigot plugin. First make a spigot server, if you don't know how to do that then look it up on youtube, it is pretty easy (except for the port-forwarding part). Once you have installed a spigot ...

Broadly speaking there are several strategies to avoid getting lost in the minecraft nether. Build infrastructure. Cut tunnels, build bridges, place markers outside and signs in tunnels (whether natrual caves or tunnels you build yourself), build structures that can be seen from a distance, especially around tunnel entrances. Use compases, a regular compass ...

So I figured out how to do this. I made a 1 x 1 block structure with just single diamond ore in it. Then, every time the player mined the ore, it built the structure right where the ore is located and then killed all the normal diamonds in that area (if there are some).

There are a few possibilities as to what may be the issue: You or your friend has bad internet. If you or your friend have bad internet, in can be almost impossible to connect, due to the high ping. You can try to fix this by shutting off Wifi-intense applications and devices in your houses. Microsoft is having a temporary issue. Sometimes Microsoft's ...

You can upload files into your game storage directly via iTunes. Simple go to: [Your device here] > Apps > Minecraft and if you scroll down, there is an option to upload/download shared app files. You should see a bunch of folders (I don't have an iPhone, but this is recalling from when I had one) and there should be a behaviour packs folder.

Your friends playing on a seed will not effect your game. Seeds just create the world. If you play on the seed, it does not change it.

Can you provide screenshots? It's hard to know what kind of message you're referring to since it could be a message in chat, actionbar, title, floating text, etc. You can try to run any of these commands to see if it's the message you're seeing: /title @s actionbar open and close /title @s title open and close /tellraw @s {"rawtext":[{"text&...

There are multiple ways to remove all slimes. In order of simplicity: Method 1 Set your render distance to one chunk and set entity render distance to the lowest value possible. By doing this, you will be able to eliminate temporary lag since it won’t render all the slimes. Load the world and set the gamemode to peaceful Change everything back to how you ...

Buying a game will sometimes let you play it on multiple consoles made by that company, depending on the game. As far as I know though, there has never been a case where buying it on one company's store lets you download it for free on another company's store. Buying a X-Box game will never let you play it for free on the Playstation, you have to buy it on ...
