How to Make a Realistic Man-made Lake in Minecraft.





Introduction: How to Make a Realistic Man-made Lake in Minecraft.

About: I like Minecraft, Medieval architecture (primarily castles), K'nex guns, and things that explode. Be sure to check out my K'nex guns and SUBSCRIBE!!!

In this instructable I will show how to build a man-made lake Minecraft.

Let's get started, shall we?

Step 1: Explosives

Place some TNT in the ground. TNT makes a realistic lake because it always produces a random crater.

Step 2: Filling in One Layer.

Fill in the second from the top layer of the hole. Don't fill it up underneath; just leave it hollow.

Step 3: Adding Water and Sand.

Add some sand around the perimeter of the lake. This makes it more realistic. Next, add some water. Make sure that it is completely flat with no currents.

Step 4: Breaking the Dirt Layer.

Swim in the water and break the dirt layer that you made. The water will flow in completely, and there will be no currents.

Step 5: You're Done!

You're done building your artificial lake.

    Thanks! Yeah, Minecraft is my favorite game. I usually prefer to build large structures, but I also do a little bit of redstone. What do you like doing best in Minecraft?

    I enjoy making maps. I have a new one coming out.

    Cool. What is the map like?

    There are two main floating islands, one for each team. When you spawn in you get basic materials to go mining amd gather resourses in your island. There is a. Island in the center, I might add more but im not sure. Anyways on the island there is a custom item, this case it is a bow.

    The objective is for each team to work together to go mining and kill the other team. Each player has 5 lives i think, it may be changed. I also might add a system where every X amount of time a player will be rewarded for killing the other team instead of camping.

    It sounds neat. Are all the islands connected in some way? How does the team get the custom item?

    Nope, you have to fight to control the island, and that's a secret :p

    Sounds interesting. Are you going to post it sometime this week?

    Like a 30% chance, it still needs work. Also,I need people to test it with.

    Oh, okay. What kind of things need to be tested?

    Everything, really. Just need players to play it with me to find any bugs.

    Also, the island look very realistic because I used a set and programs to make them look good. Plus Im a talented builder :p

    Did you use MCEdit? Are you going to post it soon?

    Yes I used McEdit.
