There are nearly endless things to do in Minecraft. In Survival Mode, your target is gathering essential resources to survive. You’ll spend most of your time hunting, gathering, exploring, looting, organizing, and building your base.

If that sounds too daunting, then you can try your hands on the Creative Mode, where an unlimited amount of resources is right at your disposal, and you can start building whatever you like!

  • 3x Stone (Obtained by putting cobblestone in a furnace)
