How to make concrete in Minecraft?

recipe for concrete cement

The concrete is quite a unique material in the game since you don't directly do it. first you do cement, you put it in the water and when you take it out it will be solid concrete, a very compact, resistant and beautiful.

Sometimes the easiest way to make a concrete construction would be to directly assemble the building with cement and then pour water on top of it. This route is much easier if you are playing in creative mode, but if you are playing in survival mode you may find it much more difficult.

Entonces the easiest ways to wet cement (and turn it into concrete) in survival mode are:

  • Grab the cinder blocks in one hand and the pickaxe in the other and head to a body of water. what you have to do is go putting the cement in the water and then pick it up with the pick. This way you can do it at high speed.
  • Create concrete walls inside the water so that you spend all the cement you need. Once you're done just grab the pickaxe and go picking up all the concrete back.

You should also keep in mind that you should be careful while building with cement because it's like sand and it could fall on you. This property of cement also means that you will not be able to completely build the house with it, only straight walls.

For this particular recipe, you don't need to put the ingredients in any order. All you have to do is place the dye in the center. Then place the rest of the ingredients and remove the cement from the box of products.

Where is the sand obtained?

Arena in Minecraft is quite common and you will most likely have no problem finding it. The best places to find it are the coasts of bodies of water and deserts.. The latter are practically made up of sand, so if you want to produce concrete or cement in large quantities, it is best to go to one. Another area where there is a lot of sand is in some underground areas, but they are definitely not the most indicated place due to the risk of landslides.

Where is the gravel sourced?

Gravel is very similar to sand in several ways.gone. This can also be obtained near bodies of water and is affected by gravity., so it is a risk to mine it in underground areas.
