Minecraft is way more than a game: it's a whole universe of creation, exhilaration, survival, and adventure. And, once you've learned to survive there, the fun really begins. From Redstone wiring to complex, automated mob farms, Minecraft's little-known built-in features offer the potential for stunning creativity. But, yet again, that's only the beginning. There are downloadable custom-crafted adventure maps. Massive multi-player servers customized with new trading systems, mini-games, and whole new societies. Incredible mods that take Minecraft into the industrial and nuclear age, and beyond.

 

Simply put, Minecraft can be whatever you want, whatever you imagine, whatever its millions of players are already imagining. There's only one problem: finding all these amazing resources and techniques. Problem solved! Now they're all in one great full-color guide: The Advanced Strategy Guide to Minecraft. Stop struggling with out-of-date web tutorials or bewildering YouTube videos: now, one easy book shows you how to do everything you'll ever want:

  • Easily install mods and manage Minecraft versions, games and profiles
  • Automate all aspects of your mining, harvesting and building tasks
