Minecraft is a popular sandbox game that allows players to explore and create their own worlds. One important aspect of the game is navigation, and a compass can be a valuable tool for finding your way around. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the steps to make a compass in Minecraft.
Step 1: Gather Resources
To make a compass in Minecraft, you’ll need to gather the following resources:
- Four iron ingots
- One piece of redstone dust
Iron ingots can be obtained by smelting iron ore in a furnace, while redstone dust can be obtained by mining redstone ore with an iron pickaxe or higher.
Step 2: Open Crafting Menu
Once you have gathered the necessary resources, open the crafting menu by pressing the “E” key on your keyboard (PC) or tapping on the crafting table icon in the game’s inventory (mobile and console).
Step 3: Place Resources in Crafting Grid
In the crafting menu, place one iron ingot in the center square of the grid and the other three iron ingots in the remaining squares around the center square. Then, place the redstone dust in the center square.
Step 4: Retrieve the Compass
Once you have placed the resources in the crafting grid, a compass will appear in the result box to the right of the grid. Click on the compass to retrieve it and add it to your inventory.
Step 5: Use the Compass
To use the compass, simply equip it in your hand and it will point towards the world spawn point. If you want the compass to point towards a specific location, you can right-click on a block with the compass in your hand to set the location as the target.
Making a compass in Minecraft is a simple process that requires only a few resources and basic crafting skills. With a compass, you can easily navigate the game world and find your way back to the world spawn point or any other location you have set as the target. Whether you’re a new player or an experienced Minecraft veteran, having a compass in your inventory can be a valuable asset in the game.
