Minecraft Pocket Edition. It’s come a long way in not too much time, and the biggest leap it made was this month with the series of 0.9 updates. New biomes: awesome. New mobs: love it. Villages: c’mon, who doesn’t love the villages! All the new features are great, but one thing that we’ve found incredibly epic is the increase of what we call neighbor-ore – precious ore, the same as, or different from, the ore you’ve already found.
In human English: you’re digging out coal and boom, then you trip across some iron. You’re digging out some redstone and smash a block in the area by accident and there’s diamonds behind it.
Have you noticed it? We have, and we have a tip for you: Always dig no less than two blocks in every direction from any ore that you mine. You’ll find tons of ore this way.
You may only dig one block out… Maybe you used to dig two blocks out in 0.8 but gave up because your chances of finding more booty nearby were… well… spotty at best. Well, it’s no longer the case.
Check out the extreme example in this post (the photo above). We started casually mining coal.. two blocks away hit some iron.. two blocks from that some lapis.. I think you get the point. But look at this. On this seed we found almost every mineable ore in basically one spot. Oh, and if the ore stash is something you want, you can get the Minecraft PE Seed (0.9+) on Epic Minecraft PE Seeds.
So, simple as it seems, digging 2 deep from anything we find has put a smile on our Steve and filled our inventory, too!
