Collect the necessary materials

Create Minecraft concrete

Before going into the details of the procedure on how to make concrete on Minecraft , I think you may be interested to know more about what materials are needed to make this construction.

Minecraft enthusiasts love concrete because of the possibility of coloring it according to their needs. In this case, it is necessary to create the concrete powder , obtainable in several ways. The general “recipe” requires the following materials: coloring , 4 blocks of sand and 4 blocks of gravel .

As for the dye , I will consider the black one , to give you a practical example. To get the latter, you must have 1 unit of ink pouch , which is obtained by defeating the squid present within the game world. You will also need a workbench , which is created by joining 4 wooden boards of any type. The sand and gravel blocks are found naturally in the game.

Moving on  to the concrete farm : to make the latter, you will need 2 wooden hatches , a bucket of water and of course concrete powder . The wooden hatches are created by joining 6 wooden planks , while the bucket is obtained through 3 iron ingots . You may also need a wooden pickaxe , which is created by joining 2 sticks to 3 wooden boards .

In short, as you have probably already guessed, obtaining concrete in Survival mode is quite simple, since all the required materials are easily found playing Minecraft. I also remind you that you can always switch to the Creative mode of the game, where all the necessary elements are already present in the inventory.

In any case, if you really need a hand, I invite you to use the Minesearch website , which allows you to have detailed instructions on the materials necessary to obtain various elements.

The operation of the site in question is very simple: just type in the name of the object you need in the search bar at the top and select the most relevant result . After that, write down the combination to create the object that appears on the screen and reproduce it within Minecraft.

Mod to create concrete on Minecraft

Concrete Mod Minecraft

Minecraft is one of the most popular video games in regards to user-made mods. Among these, there could clearly not be one dedicated to concrete and is called Concrete Mod .

Assuming that the mod only works on the Java version of the Mojang title, I recommend you use version 1.12.2 of the game, since it is considered by many fans as the one in which the mods work more stable.

To download the mod, simply connect to the 9minecraft website , scroll down the page and press the Download from Server 1 button, which is located below the writing relating to the version of Minecraft in your possession. Now, press the blue DOWNLOAD button that appears on the screen.

A file called Concrete-Mod- [version] .jar will then be downloaded : you have to move / copy it to the Minecraft mod folder. On Windows , the path to follow is C: Users [username] AppDataRoaming.minecraftmods , while on macOS it is ~ / Library / Application Support / minecraft / mods .

When installing a mod, it is always good to also configure the Forge profile, in order to be sure of its correct functioning. To proceed, then go to the Forge official website and press the Installer item . If you are looking for Forge for a “dated” version of Minecraft (such as 1.12.2), you must press the Show all Version button .

Once the download is complete, start the forge- [version] -installer.jar file obtained, select the Install Client item and press OK . Perfect, you managed to configure the Forge profile.

Then, to start using the mod, you just have to select the Forge profile using the down arrow icon on the left, next to the PLAY button , on the main screen of the Minecraft Launcher .

Once in the game, possibly in Creative mode , press the E button on the keyboard, press the arrow icon to the right present at the top right, select the concrete blocks you want to use and drag them into the inventory .

Perfect, now you just have to place the blocks and objects you have chosen on the ground to create all the structures you want.
