You have therefore taken your first steps within the boundless world made available by the game, but you have some doubts about the objects that can be “crafted”, that is to say create.

Collect the necessary materials
Before going into the details of the procedure on how to make bricks in minecraft, I think you might be interested in learning more about the materials needed for the construction of this element in the mode Survival of the title of Mojang. I remind you that in the mode Creative you already have all the relevant materials in your inventory.
Well, to create “common” bricks in Minecraft you need one clod of clay, a unit of any fuel (eg. Carbone) and one furnace. There clod of clay it is obtained simply by destroying the clay blocks present within the game world, while the various fuels they can be obtained in many ways. My advice is to focus on Coal, since it is found simply by destroying the raw coal blocks.
As for the furnace, you have to merge 8 blocks of crushed stone, leaving empty the space in the center of the Work station. To create the latter, you need to merge 4 axis units, which are simply found within the game world, while for more information on crushed stone I suggest you consult my tutorial on how to make a Cobblestone Generator, or a automatic generator of this material.
Later, you can merge 4 brick units “Common” to create a brick block. If you want to build gods instead stone bricks, Minecraft has only the “already finished” block. To create the latter, you just need to simply find 4 stone units, which are found in abundance within the game world.
In short, as you can see, we are talking about rather simple materials to find even in mode Survival. If you just can’t find something, I recommend using an interesting one external tool to obtain the “recipe” to create the various materials: I am referring to MineSearch.
To use this service, all you have to do is connect to its official website, write in the search bar (located at the top right) the item name you need and select the result most relevant.
In this way, the combination of objects necessary to create the object involved and you will simply have to reproduce it inside Minecraft in the way that I will explain to you in the next chapters.
How to make bricks in Minecraft
Making the “common” bricks in Minecraft is not that difficult, once you have the right materials.
The first thing you need to do is place a Work station on the ground.
After that, interact with it and place 8 blocks of crushed stone, leaving the center box blank.
At this point, place the furnace that you just created on the ground.
Now, interact with it and place one clod of clay in the top block and a unit of fuel in the lower block, so as to create a brick.
Once created 4 brick units, interact with the Work station you placed earlier and combine the units to make a brick block.
Perfect, now you have learned to create bricks in minecraft. You can clearly use them to make all the structures you want, like any common building block in the game.
How to make stone bricks in Minecraft
How do you say? You would like to make gods stone bricks rather than the common ones? No problem, I’ll explain immediately how to proceed: even in this case, the procedure is not complex.
In fact, all you have to do is open theinventory (by pressing, for example, the button AND keyboard on a PC) or interact with a Work station and place 4 stone units, thus creating a stone brick block.
Great, now you can create all structures What do you want. Seen? It wasn’t that hard!
Mod to make bricks in Minecraft
As we have seen previously, Minecraft offers different types of bricks. However, you may want to add more to make some truly original builds within the Mojang title. Well, in this case I recommend you to use the mod Bricks, compatible with the version 1.7.10 of the Java PC edition of Minecraft.
Before proceeding with the installation of the mod, you must correctly configure the Forge profile. To do this, connect to the official website and press on the item Installer, clearly choosing one of the versions supported by mod. You may have to press on the item Show all Version to access the older Forge profiles. Also, in certain cases, you may have to wait a few seconds and press the button SKIP, present at the top right, to start the download.
Once finished, run the file forge–installer.jar obtained, press on the item Install Client and press on OK. Great, you have now successfully installed Forge on your computer.
At this point, go to the CurseForge website and press the button Download present on the right. In this way, you will get the file Bricks-.jar, which you will have to move / copy in mod folder of Minecraft. On Windows, the path to follow is C: Users AppData Roaming .minecraft mods, while on macOS And ~ / Library / Application Support / minecraft / mods.
To use the mod, you just have to select the Forge profile through thedown arrow icon present on the left, next to the button PLAYS, on the main screen of the Minecraft Launcher.
Once in the game, possibly in mode Creative, just press the button AND on the keyboard, select thecompass icon on the right and type “bricks“.
At this point, you just have to take one of the many brick blocks added by the mod (ex. Red Bricks) and use it to create your own structures. Since you are interested in Minecraft, I invite you to consult the page of my site dedicated to the title of Mojang, where you can find countless tutorials on the subject.
