Before going into detail about the procedure on how to bridge Minecraft, I think you may be interested to know more about the places and ways to find the necessary materials to create this structure in a modality Survival. I remind you that in Creative mode you already have everything you need within the inventory, so you don’t have to collect any materials.

Well, to make a common bridge in Survival mode you need the following materials: Oak wood, fir steps, oak steps, fir fences, fir boards, fir slabs, torches is buckets of water.

To build, instead, a automatic bridge, you will need: sticky slippers, redstone boosters, redstone powder, quartz blocks, levers is buckets of water.

If you want to proceed in Survival mode, you must know that most of the materials necessary for the construction of the pool are obtained simply by playing Minecraft. Probably the most difficult element to find in Mojang’s title is the redstone powder, which is obtained by extracting it from the rough redstone or by collecting it within the trunks scattered throughout the game world.

In any case, I advise you to use a convenient external tool to understand how to obtain certain materials: I am referring to MineSearch: a website that allows you to search for an element and discover all the materials necessary to create it in Minecraft.

To use MineSearch, all you have to do is connect to his first page, write in the search bar (top right) the name of the element you need and select the result more relevant.

In doing so, the will appear on the screen combination of objects that you will have to use to obtain the element you are trying to create. I can assure you that, using this tool, you will be able to find all the materials needed to build your bridge (or your automatic bridge) in a flash.

How to create a bridge on Minecraft

Creating a common bridge on Minecraft is not that difficult, taking the right precautions. The first thing you need to do is create a 6 x 13 block hole.

At this point, position 2 fir steps to the right of the oak wood.

After that, it recreates the same structure composed of oak woods also on the right, so that everything is mirrored.

Once this is done, go down to the hole you created earlier, break the lower blocks and replace them with 2 units of fir boards.

Next, join the two structures by using fir slabs, just creating a bridge.

How do you say? Would you like to create a slightly more advanced structure, which is also able to raise and lower the bridge? No problem, I’ll explain how to do it right away.

Start by making a 6 x 13 block hole on the ground, the depth is equal to 3 blocks.

Hole three blocks Minecraft

After that, square 2 rows of sticky pistons in the central part of the hole.

So dig 2 blocks to the right and left of the sticky pistons and place a row of redstone boosters and a row of redstone powder.

At this point, place gods quartz blocks above the sticky pistons and sides of the hole.

Next, he creates “steps” made of quartz blocks to exit the structure and place it above the redstone powder, continuing the initial path.

Now, place one lever on the block visible above.

Then join the right and left sides around the pistons continuing the path of the redstone.

In some versions of Minecraft, the redstone may not be able to reach all the pistons. So you may have to accomplish 2 levers, one to raise the left part of the bridge and one to raise the right part.

Once this is done, cover the whole hole with quartz blocks, being careful not to “turn off” the redstone or damage the underground structure.

Mod to make a bridge on Minecraft

Mod to create bridge

Over the years, Minecraft gamers have been among the most active in making mod. Therefore, a mod that allows you to quickly create bridges cannot be missing. Well, it is called Rope Bridge and allows, in particular, to build bridges between one top of a mountain and another.

Remembering that this type of mod only works on the edition Java of the title of Mojang, my advice is to use the version 1.12.2 of the video game, since usually the mods made for this build are stable and do not create problems with the gaming experience.

To download the mod, just connect to the Curseforge website and press on the button Download, present alongside the writing relating to Minecraft version in your possession. Now, wait a few seconds and a file called will be downloaded to your computer ropebridge-[versione].jar, which you need to move / copy to the Minecraft mod folder. Up Windows, the path to put the jar file is C: Users [nome utente] AppData Roaming .minecraft modswhile on MacOS is ~ / Library / Application Support / minecraft / mods.

Mod Minecraft folder

In certain contexts, in order for the mod to work properly, it may be necessary to install the Forge profile. To do this, all you have to do is go to the Forge official website and press on the voice Installer. To get Forge for a “dated” version of Minecraft (like 1.12.2), just press the button Show all Version.

Once the download is complete, you just have to open the file forge-[versione]-installer.jar obtained, select the item Install Client and press on OK. Great, you have now successfully installed the Forge profile on Minecraft.

Once this is done, start the Minecraft Launcher and select the Forge profile through thedown arrow icon, present on the left, next to the button PLAYS. Once in the game, possibly in mode creative, push the button IS keyboard and take the object Bridge Building Gun.

At this point, go to the top of a mountain and press on a block present on the other side. This will automatically create a bridge.
