Yep, Minecraft is already 6 years old from its release last May of 2009, and it is still showing no signs of slowing down, it even had a release on the newer generation of consoles last year. But if you still have not played this game, there should be no reason for you to not to especially if you are into open world sandbox games and infinite possibilities of building things.
We have a shortlist of some tips for you to try out:
Torches can create a small pocket of air underwater
Trying to mine underwater? You can last longer underwater by placing a torch, as it gets temporarily displaced, you can take a quick breath on the short burst of bubbles it will produce
Torches can break sand and gravel
For some weird reason, you can take out a stack of sand or gravel by placing a torch on the bottom of a stack quickly, you will notice that the stack will collapse on the torch.
Torches can hold sand or gravel
Yep another Torch tip, this time it defies logic as you can place any stack of sand or gravel on a torch by placing a wall-mounted torch, so instead of breaking it apart, it will hold up the stack of sand or gravel
Actually Torches can hold up into any amount of stack
Yes they can hold blocks at any amount, giving you more creative options for your designs.
Signs and ladders can stop a lava or water flow
Need to block off any water or lava flow? Use a sign or a ladder, it will completely block the flow of liquid (and molten rocks) giving you some options to do crazy building designs with ladders and signs.
Two buckets of water is all you need for infinite water source
By creating a trench with a size of just 3 blocks, plus filling both sides with water by using a water bucket, you can create a water source with infinite usage. Just be sure to take water from the middle otherwise the water source will break apart.
