Hey guys! Earlier I posted a pretty cool greenhouse design that somebody made. It was really simple to create, but I thought I’d share this guide to show you all how to make your own greenhouses. This guide is aimed at anybody that might not be that experience with Minecraft Pocket Edition yet, so if you find this boring, how about sharing it with any friends that might have only just got Minecraft Pocket Edition? Anyway, let’s get started!

Firstly, you’ll want to find or create a nice flat area of land. This will make building the foundations of your greenhouse much, much easier. I have laid out some dirt to create a decent amount of flat land.

Next, you’ll want to build the foundations of your greenhouse. I have used stone slabs – you can see my progress below. I have left a two block space at the front because this will be the entrance.

After doing the same as above, you’ll want to create some even holes in your flat land – this will be for water. Crops need water to grow, so it’s important to spread it out evenly. The way you dig holes for water will depend on the size of your greenhouse, but if you build on the same size as mine, you could use this picture as a guideline.

Now you just need to fill the holes with water!

Once you’ve done that, hoe all of the dirt, and fill it with seeds, leaving out spaces in the middle for lights. I have used wood blocks in the middle bits of dirt, and put torches on the sides of the wood. Crops need light to grow, so these torches will make sure it stays light, even in the middle of the night.

For the final step, all you need to do is create four walls of glass! I have used stone pillars at two ends to act as supports for the glass walls.

What do you think of this greenhouse? Do you think it’s simple enough to build?

Hey guys! As you may have already guessed, the life of a game developer is a pretty busy life, and sometimes it’s hard to interact with the fans of the game you’re making. This seems to be the case with everyone currently working on Minecraft Pocket Edition, but tomorrow they will be hosting a special Q&A session, and they will be answering lots of questions about Minecraft Pocket Edition and it’s stages of development!

For those that didn’t know, Q&A stands for questions and answers, and this means people will be able to answer questions, and the developers will answer them for us! The biggest question I’m sure we all want answered is when update 0.9.0 will be released, but we’ll have to see tomorrow if we get an answer on this. There are many other questions that might get answered tomorrow too, including information on new mobs, updates in the future, mod support, better texture support, game features that might be exclusive to Minecraft Pocket Edition, and much more!

The Q&A session will be hosted on reddit.com/r/mcpe, so if you want to get involved, you can head over there tomorrow! However, once the session is over, I will try and round up the best questions and answers and share them all with you here! Hopefully lots of interesting information will come from this!

If you could ask the developers of Minecraft Pocket Edition one question what do you think it would be? Let me know your questions in the comments section below!

Hey guys! I have a really cool map to share with you all today! This map was made in PC and ported over to Minecraft Pocket Edition by ThePEBuildingBros, and I think it’s absolutely awesome! Ported PC maps are always really fun to check out, and especially the survival ones. This particular map has a massive cove area in it, and loads of thick forests. Check out pictures of the map below, and then download it for yourself to try out!

The picture below shows an awesome bird’s eye view of the paradise cove! There is a nice pool of crystal clear water, and it is completely surrounded by thick patches of trees! I think it looks really, really cool! Because it’s such a filled map, it took a while for the whole world to render, so there are a few patches in the world  that you can see. Although this is kind of annoying, it’s pretty awesome because we can get a peak at all of the caves underground!

The world would be pretty hard to get around on survival mode, but it’s certainly not impossible. There are plenty of trees near the spawn area so players can easily gather enough materials, however players would have to think carefully about how to get up to the higher places if they plan to build a base or a home up there.

I personally just think this map looks amazingly majestic!

Hey guys! I have a pretty awesome design to share with you all today! This design was created and sent in by the_skywarrior3 – he made it in creative mode, but the greenhouse is simple enough to create in survival mode, too! The greenhouse only uses stone, dirt, glass and glowstone blocks, but if you can’t get any glowstone, you could just use torches instead.

In the picture below, the greenhouse can be seen. Stone blocks have been used on the outside of the greenhouse to create a nice even platform that the greenhouse can be placed on. There are wood stairs to allow players to walk up to the top of the platform, and wood has been used as the main building material. Greenhouses are all about letting in as much light as possible, so a lot of space on the walls is taken up by transparent glass.

Here’s a look at the greenhouse from up close – in this picture you can get a good idea of what the entrance of the greenhouse looks like, and you can also see the main farm and glass layout.

There are four different patches in this farm, which means the sky_warrior3 can grow four different types of crops, or if he wanted to, he could use all the space for just one crop. In this picture, he is growing a variety of different things at once.

So, what do you all think of this design? I personally think it’s really awesome! You can leave your own thoughts and opinions in the comments section below this post.
