Console Edition tutorial
The Console Edition tutorial is a short walk through of Minecraft's basic mechanics. It allows newcomers to familiarize themselves with the game, primarily with the Controls and the crafting system. Found only in the Console Edition, the tutorial takes place in a flat area, with trees in small clusters around the side. It will not let you leave the enclosed area until finishing or canceling the tutorial, though the player may do whatever they want within the enclosed area. Around the rest of the world there are approximately 12 hidden chests containing items and a music disc that you can search for.
Concepts covered[edit | edit source]
The tutorial walks the player through:
- Chopping wood
- Game controls
- Creating planks and a crafting table
- Inventory use
- Creating basic tools
- Using a furnace
- Building a shelter
- Surviving the night
Tutorial area[edit | edit source]
- The tutorial area is a flat plain with sparsely growing grass and flowers. There is a lake, with a chest containing 17 fishing rods next to it. There is also a river with a chest next to it, with 9 boats in it.
- A pond lined with sand can be found in the field. Near this pond is a cobblestone wall with a redstone/piston demonstration area. Opposite, is an incomplete miner's shelter which you are tasked to complete during the tutorial. This shelter is surrounded by gravel, which has a path leading to the exit, which you can only pass through if you have either completed or cancelled the tutorial. Through this exit is a castle.
