Minecraft Basics 1.2 - Getting Food and the First Nights Shelter

By GamingCats
Once we have a decent set of stone tools we need to start thinking about finding food, and somewhere to stay over the night. Because as soon as the sun goes down out comes the monsters. Zombies. Skeletons with bows and arrows. Nasty Creepers who silently slink up behind you and blow up themselves, you and everything around you.

Some players try to do it all on their first day - build wooden tools, get stone and make stone tools, find food and build a nice house. Usually that results in you ending up died and re-spawning somewhere, with the loss of all you have done so far.

My suggestion is do as much as you can the first day, then when it gets dark dig a hole in a hillside, place a torch in there and seal your self up for the night. You are just not ready to fight the bad guys - yet!

And while in your hidey hole you can cook food and craft more items if you have found enough materials. This way when the sun comes up you are in a stronger and better position to really start building a shelter.
