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.

Yes - the traditional apprach is to leave a mailbox - some container, like a barrel, maybe decorated to resemble a fancy mailbox, in front of your base, with a book&quill inside. Anyone can pick the book and leave you a message inside - or deliver some goods and leave them in the mailbox alongside the message. More technically inclined players will add ...

Place a boat in its path as it chases you, and get it to enter the boat - caught like that it's unable to chase you. At this point you could try slashing it with anything, but that will lead to considerable wear of the good equipment. Using a piston to push a block into its head instead, will quickly suffocate the zombie and finish it off. An alternative is ...

Better Method An anonymous user has suggested this new method, which sadly I can't give credit for because they are anonymous, but it's a better idea. Have a repeating always active command block with: /kick @a[tag=banned] You can then run this command to "ban" them: /tag A_USERNAME add banned To unban someone: /tag A_USERNAME remove banned Old ...

The quotation mark method seems like it would work, but it doesn't in /op. However there are still other methods that work. As the other answer mentions, you will be able to get a player UUID from that person in the chat. But what if the player hasn't chatted recently? If your player hasn't chatted recently, you won't see their username in chat and won't be ...

I bought my son two Minecraft editions for the Playstation 4. One was "Bedrock edition" and the other just was "Starter pack". All versions of Minecraft for the PlayStation 4 become Bedrock once they are updated via PlayStation Network. No matter if they just say "Minecraft" or "Minecraft PlayStation 4 Edition". The &...

I'm guessing that one of the products you bought looked like this: This is a Bedrock Edition game. You'll notice this one says it includes the starter pack. "Starter Pack Contents - Includes 700 Tokens, LittleBigPlanet Mash-Up, Greek Mythology Mash-Up, Skin Pack 1, City Texture Pack." The starter pack is just a couple texture packs and/or worlds ...

Not only can you shift+click one stack of items, but you can shift and double-click to obtain all the stacks of that same item. Edit: I didn't realize you also asked to equip things. If you have any armor in your chest, you can shift+click to get it into your inventory, then right click (if it is in your hotbar) and you will equip the armor if you are ...

They both should be Bedrock Edition. Java Edition only works on PC, Mac, and Linux while other devices (as well as PC when you download the game from the Microsoft Store that comes with Windows 10/11) use Bedrock Edition. To answer your second question on which one to keep, I would probably keep the VR for if you are ever planning to play with VR.

There is unfortunately no way to ban players currently, but there is a way to whitelist, so if you only want some people to be allowed on you can turn the whitelist on and add the players you want to the whitelist.

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 ...

Yes. The wiki has an in-depth article on the mechanics, but the very essence is that bookshelves placed within a 5x5 ring centered on the table, on the same level as the table and 1 level above contribute to the enchant level. Up to 15 bookshelves matter. Their distribution within that ring doesn't matter; what matters is that there's nothing between them ...

https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Sheep The color of wool a disco sheep will drop is unaffected by its rainbow coloring. Instead, it will drop wool of its original color before the rainbow effect was added. When shearing a jeb_ sheep, you will get the same wool as its color before it became jeb_. If it was blue before you turned it into jeb_, for example, ...

You can't. Minecraft RTX relies on features exclusive to Nvidia RTX 2000 and 3000 series GPUs. Any other GPU will simply be unable to run it even if you were able to trick the system into thinking you met the minimum spec.

Piglins CAN dance, but you can't make them dance. To make Piglins dance this has to happen: There must be more than one Piglin and more than one Hoglin They can't be in a Bastion Remnant. There is a 15% (Not completely sure) chance Piglins will hunt Hoglins After successfully hunting the Hoglins there's a 10% chance of them doing a victory dance. BTW when ...

Yes. You can substitute dirt in whatever commands you are using for farmland. If you want to fill with farmland that is already watered use farmland[moisture=7]. (Credit @lolad) Note: this will not prevent the farmland from drying out and reverting to dirt if not near a water source.

If you look at the MCBE version history, the outdated version is 1.16.40, the one on your PC. Minecraft Bedrock Edition is considered a Microsoft Store app. So go to the Microsoft Store app on your PC and click on Downloads and Updates in the dropdown menu: and that should allow you to update your game.

Unfortunately no. Technically, Minecraft is sold as a separate product on each platform you can play it on, even though there two types remaining: minecraft-bedrock-edition minecraft-java-edition For example, even though I own minecraft-bedrock-edition for windows-10, xbox-one, and ios, I had to purchase each product separately: Minecraft Minecraft for ...

Because it's their intended behaviour. When the player sleeps, tamed cats move toward their owner and sleep near them. There is a 70% chance for a tamed cat to give the player a gift after they wake up, but only if the player sleeps at night. If a player has multiple standing tamed cats in the area, only the tamed cat that sleeps on the player may provide a ...

This is an interesting question, but I'm afraid you'll find the answer a bit underwhelming. After the contents of win.txt are loaded there is some processing done in the code: Each occurrence of PLAYERNAME is replaced by the actual name of the player Each occurrence of §f§k§a§b is replaced by §f§kXXXX (literal Latin Capital Letter X characters) where the ...

Wither Roses can be made into black dye (Which is ludicrously impractical in the early game unless you are in an old style world with zero potential squid spawning zones, in which case you may be better off with a new world) and used for semi-automatic mob farms, as mentioned by Zyxilef. But, they can also be used for traps, and can be used to make ...

There are no meteors in Minecraft. The closest thing would be a lightning strike during a thunderstorm, but it would only set things on fire, it wouldn't create a crater. An explosion can be caused by a few things: A creeper. A wither, or the wither's projectiles. TNT. An end crystal. A bed in the Nether. A respawn anchor in the Overworld. If you were ...

You can trap the zombie, and then use a falling anvil to inflict quite a bit of damage. You can then finish it off with something that has sharpness or flame, or even a decent bow. You can then repair the armor. Once you have it trapped, it's just a question of how to finish it off.

A 5% Chance. However, for that chance to start happening, you'd need to make sure that a flower is no more than two blocks away from your oak/birch saplings, and that the flower and sapling are on the same elevation. As quoted by the MineCraft Gamepedia; "5% Oak or birch trees grown from saplings that are within 2 blocks of any flower on the same y-...

No, 2b2t is only compatible with an older version of the Java Edition client (currently at version 1.12.2 at the time of this answer). You can only join the 2b2t with the specific version of Minecraft that the server is running.
