Surviving in Minecraft: Pocket Edition, Episode 2 - Making Fire

By , on September 1, 2014

As a complete newbie to Minecraft: PE, I've found that even basic human needs are often a struggle to fulfill.

Last week I needed to quickly create shelter, this week I'm in need of light to make the nights pass quicker. But just how do you go about making a light to mine by?

And also: what happened to Bertie? Did he survive the cold hard night?

Find out in the video below.

You don't need to use your pickaxe on dirt; that's a waste. Use a shovel for digging dirt, sand, and Grail (or at least I think it's gravel). To substitute for coal, just create a furnace (which is the "stove" you heard about) with eight cobblestone (which you mine) and burn one wood with another wood (one in both slots), then use that single charcoal you get to burn about seven more wood for more charcoal. If you can get a tree farm going, then you'll have unlimited wood and charcoal to work with.

Also, torches last infinitely. :p
