    This is essential for anyone who wants to get into this game, as the game offers a large number of useful applications for the player, ranging from weeding to ability to cook the meat.

    When it is said that Minecraft is a survival game, it is that you also have a blood meter and that you will get hurt if you try to eat meat without cooking.

    Normal flashlights

    To make a torch, you will need to go to the forest, cut down some trees and convert their stump into wooden slabs. This is accomplished by leaving the trunk blocks in our crafting menu. Stack two blocks of processed wood will create a group of poles.

    When you have the joints, you will need Coal. This is very easy to achieve, as its mineral is quite recognizable. If you put a coal on a stick on the work table, will give you a flashlight.

    Blue flashlights

    In order to be able to craft blue fire torches, the first thing you need to do is open a portal to go to the Nether , in this biome you will find a terrain called Soul Sand and on one side there will be a new block called Soul Soil which has a rolling earth aspect and when you cross it it will not stop you. 

    You'll need to get these Soul Soil blocks and then collect charcoal or firewood and a stick , you throw it at your work table and you will get four blue fire torches for every batch of materials you put in.

    Colored torches

    In order to make colored flashlights you have to make sure of activate the Education Edition mode in order to use the chemical characteristics in the game, in the inventory you will have the chemical elements that you will need to create the torches and you have to use the formulas exactly or not they will work for you. 

    You have to go to the compound maker to create the bottles that will change the color of your flashlights with the following formulas:

    • Tungsten (74) +6 Chlorine (17) = Bottle of tungsten chloride.
    •  Mercury (80) + 3 chlorine (17) = bottle of mercury chloride.
    •  Cerium (58) + 3 chlorine (17) = bottle of cerium chloride.
    • potassium (19) + 1 chlorine (17) = bottle of potassium chloride.

    Once the bottles are obtained, you have to go and realize and place one of the bottles with a torch first, and so on until you get a purple, blue, red and green torch.

    Torches of the soul

    To create the soul torches you will need blocks of earth of the soul or sand of the soul, coal and a stick . Then you will go to the Crafting table and put all these materials and you will get four soul torches.

    Red stone torches

    The red stone torches they serve as a power source in redstone circuits or to emit a dim, ghostly light. The first thing you need to do to create them is to get a red stone and the easiest way is to extract it directly from the red stone mineral that forms underground. 

    So you will need a staff and match it with the red stone in the crafting menu, from a single stick and red stone will be created a red stone torch or, as its translation says, a red stone torch.

    Charcoal-free torches

    If you do not have coal, the first thing you should do is an oven with 8 stones on the Crafting table leaving the central space empty, you will place the oven on the floor and in the upper slot you will place the wood, above the flames and in the lower slot you will place planks of wood, you will activate the oven and the wood you placed on top will burn and turn into charcoal. 

    After you get the charcoal, combine it with the wooden sticks on the work table and you will get your flashlights.

    How to make different types of bonfires in Minecraft

    This is a very nice decorative block, which adds warmth to our play spaces. It is important to know that the fire also expels a column of smoke that you can see in the distance, in order to easily locate your home.

    When you create a bonfire, you also create a light source that will keep monsters out of your home. This is very important, because they can kill you. In case he is a zombie, he can try to break down your door. The Creepers will try to exploit you and the skeletons will try to give you arrows until you see yourself die.

    It is important that you know that you can use any type of wood for your bonfires, and that there is also the blue variant that is obtained by exchanging coal for Soul Earth, which comes out in the Nether.

    Normal bonfires

    To create this device you will have to go to the forest and acquire 3 wooden blocks, which you will have to peel. This is done with the right mouse button when you have an ax and before you hit the block.

    Additionally, you will need a coal ore and 3 sticks. When you have all accumulated, you will have to go to your work table. In the 3 spaces below you will find your wood. In the center of the crafting space you will place your coal. This will be accompanied on the sides by two sticks, and you too will have to put one on top. This will make you create your own campfire.

    Fires without mod

    To make a mod-free bonfire you need to go to settings and make sure the cheats are turned off , after which you will need the following materials: 1 bed, 4 rock walls, 3 buckets of water, 9 grass blocks, 4 armor stands, 1 lava cube, 4 mud blocks, 1 red stone block, 2 normal pistons and if you want to decorate, wood. 

    Next, I will describe step by step how to make your own mod-free bonfire: 

    1. We have to open a hole 3 × 2 deeper and in the center of the left side, then put the bed on the left side under the hole in the middle, at the foot of the bed you will put two stone walls and next to the wall another two more walls. 
    2. On the right side of the bed you will put the water, put it in the upper block so that in this way the current flows towards the walls , then you'll cover those two blocks. 
    3. You will put a bucket of water in the space in the center of the left side which has less depth. 
    4. Next to this you will put two grass blocks and start placing the armor stands, make sure they are one in each direction, they will have the shape of a star
    5. Next, you will place a block of land where you placed the water and you will remove the grass blocks that had been positioned to put the supports, will immediately begin to move like a kind of jumps. 
    6. Wherever the current of water is, you will put the last bucket of water, so that the current of water is eliminated and the supports stop jumping. 
    7. You will remove the two rock walls above and you will have to quickly remove the rock wall that is behind the bed and put a bucket of lava, remember that this step it has to be fast to make it happen
    8. You already have the fire, now you will have to cover the ground, but it's not that easy. You have to place a platform of 4 blocks of grass over the fire and on top of these blocks put the 4 blocks of slime and a piston facing down. 
    9. Activate the piston with the red stone block and lower one layer, you have to repeat this procedure until it goes down enough. 
    10. Finally, you will remove the slime blocks, redstone blocks and the piston and you will have an amazing bonfire without using mods.
