Having said that, I just have to wish you a good read and, above all, have a good time!
Collect the necessary materials
To build a school on Minecraft , you will need some essential materials, without which you will not be able to tackle this project.
First of all, you must choose the material to be used for the construction of the foundations and walls: these do not necessarily have to be of the same material and, therefore, you will have to make a careful choice.
There are many types of blocks that you can use for the realization of this project but, in my opinion, the concrete ones are the most suitable. This material can also take up to 16 different colors: very useful feature, in case you want to give a particular touch of style to your construction.
To get concrete , first you need to combine 4 units of gravel , 4 units of sand and 1 unit of dye in a workbench: in this way, you will get the blocks of colored concrete powder to be used in your project. Since the powder is fragile, you need to water it with water , using a bucket , to turn it into concrete blocks .
If you want to know the other materials to be used for the construction of a school, I recommend you read my guide on how to build a modern house , in which you will find all the useful tips to choose the ones that best suit your tastes.
As for the windows, you will need to add doors and windows . For the doors, you can refer to this guide of mine , in which I explain how to build a normal or automated one. For windows, however, I recommend you to build simple windows: in my guide on how to make glass on Minecraft , you can find all the useful information to create this resource.
As for the interior furnishings of the school, you will need wood to make chairs and tables . You can build the chairs using wooden steps , for which you will need 6 units of wooden boards to use in a workbench, or follow the advice I have given you in this guide . For the tables , however, it is sufficient to combine a fence with a carpet . I told you in detail in my guide dedicated to the subject.
Finally, you can add birch hatches to simulate the blackboard chalk holder , which you can create in a workbench, using 6 units of birch boards . Don’t forget the school lighting, using luminite blocks , which you can create in a workbench with 4 units of luminite powder , a resource available in the Nether or by trading with NPCs (non-player characters).
Building a school on Minecraft
The first thing you need to do to build a school on Minecraft is to find a large space where you can carry out this project. If you have found a suitable area to build the school, remove all elements that hinder construction, such as trees or blocks of land.
In the project that I will show you in this guide of mine, I will limit myself to the construction of a simple classroom, without proceeding with the construction of accessory buildings or to articulate the structure with additional rooms. If you want to consider creating a more complex project, then I recommend reading the next chapter .
Now that you have clear what you are going to build with the procedures that I will describe to you, it is time to take action. First, remove an entire area of terrain blocks of the size you prefer (e.g. 15 × 11 ). Limited only to the first layer of blocks, in place of which you must place those that will act as a floor .
After building the foundations, erect the perimeter walls using the same blocks you used for the foundations or others of a different color. I advise you to build walls at least five blocks high.
During the construction of the perimeter walls, you can leave the space for large windows or you can simply get them later, removing the blocks you don’t need. Also remember to create an entrance , which will house the door .
On one of the four walls, draw a large space from the wall, in order to build the blackboard . To do this, you need to place blocks of black concrete , in order to simulate a blackboard on the wall. Just below the latter, you can also add birch hatches , which will act as chalk holders.
Now, proceed with the construction of the chair , moving a block away from the blackboard. Add a wooden step as a chair and then, in front of it, install 3 fence units . After doing this, place rugs on the fences, in order to create the chair .
At this point, spaced two more blocks away from the chair and position the steps facing it. On the side, leave a block of space between the steps, while keeping the distance of two blocks for the other rows of chairs you will place.
In front of each chair, place 1 fence unit , on which you must then add 1 carpet unit , in order to create the benches . If you have done all the steps I have indicated, you will have completed the classroom furnishings. If you deem it appropriate, you can add floral decorations or any other element.
Finally, build the school roof , taking care to insert some luminite blocks between the ceiling blocks , which will serve to illuminate the room.
Mod to build a school on Minecraft
If you want to build a more complex school project, with many classrooms and other complementary structures, I recommend using Instant Structures Mod (ISM) , a mod for Minecraft Java Edition that allows you to add structures in a few clicks that would normally take weeks or even months for their realization.
To use this mod, you must first download Minecraft Forge , a tool that manages these add-ons for Minecraft. Then go to the official website of this software and press the Installer button , to download the Minecraft Forge.jar file . After downloading the latter, double click on it and press the OK button to start installing it.
Now, download ISM through its official website , pressing the Download Instant Structures Mod button and then choosing the compatible Minecraft version. After downloading the ISM.jar file , move it to the mods folder , which you can find in the Minecraft main directory ( C: Users [name] AppDataRoaming.minecraft ). If you don’t find the latter, create it manually .
At this point, start Minecraft and press the ▲ icon , which you will find next to the Play button . Then choose the Forge profile and press the Play button to start Minecraft with mod support. At the same time as Minecraft starts, the ISM screen will also start, through which you can search for the project to be implemented in the world of Minecraft.
After starting a new game session or an existing one, in the ISM screen, press on the Browse item , in the sidebar, and type the term “school” , followed by pressing the Search button . Then choose the structure you like best, click on its thumbnail and press first on the brick icon and then on the Place Structure button .
If you have followed the procedures I have indicated to you, the Minecraft screen will start an upload, at the end of which the structure of the school you have chosen will be positioned. Comfortable, right?
