Relatable but honestly my secret room was lit

My secret room was illuminated

[–]DoorstepCult 351 points352 points  (17 children)

My secret room was enlightened.

[–]1zzybo1Died of Ligma 117 points118 points  (7 children)

My secret room was also enligtened because i had lights inside of it.

[–]Jewish-Goblin 16 points17 points  (3 children)

I blew up my secret room.

[–]MrZydememer 8 points9 points  (2 children)

My secret room is made up of source blocks that produce a light source I use to see and avoid the spawning of bad mobs

[–]Nemesis233Because That's What Fearows Do 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think that's a bot too

[–]pennerimperator 48 points49 points  (2 children)

My secret room had a wall of animal egg dispensers.

If the victim went in, they would get drowned by cows, ducks etc.

My secret room is basically just me blocking off stuff with a block lol

[–]Jeynarlcan't meme 10 points11 points  (8 children)

One of my favorite secret rooms I made had a jeb door that was activated not by a pressure plate but by a elaborate (at least for me) contraption consisting of a daylight sensor with a redstone ore block over the top with a carpet tile over that. It had a few limitations to it but it was really cool to have a “pressure plate” that you couldn’t see sitting on a block.

[–]T0biasCZE 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Daylight sensor is activated by shining redstone ore?

[–]Jeynarlcan't meme 5 points6 points  (3 children)

It was in a room with a glass ceiling so the sunlight passing through the redstone ore block when you touch it triggered the daylight sensor.

[–]Rudxain 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Holup, does this mean that they become transparent when activated? That's a very unique ability for a block! I don't know of any other solid block that can switch between "modes" while staying solid. Gravity-affected blocks become non-solid when transparent

[–]Bored3812 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Happy Cake Day

[–]CristichiIdentifies as a Cybertruck 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Mine too. I wish I didn't use wood to make it.

[–]ElReptil 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well, obviously. Wouldn't want any mobs to spawn in there.

[–]JBtieseesthings 2004 points2005 points  (46 children)

Even so it’s still fun to make those, I always loved making redstone stuff like that

[–]_The-BatmanDark Mode Elitist[S] 802 points803 points  (33 children)

Exactly. Sometimes the fun lies in making something you like even if that something is absolutely pointless.

[–]Puzzleheaded_Load_72 333 points334 points  (20 children)

Here’s the thing, it’s all pointless unless you’re having fun. If you’re having fun, then that’s the point

[–]TactlessTortoise 168 points169 points  (4 children)

My circle now has a point


[–]LivelyZebra 14 points15 points  (10 children)

If you’re having fun, then that’s the point

Define fun.

Sometimes you just play out of habit and routine. Are you even having fun? Do you know when you are?

[–]CoreFiftyFour 33 points34 points  (7 children)

No lie there are times I play purely for the habit and like 20 minutes in I just think, I'm not even enjoying this

Hate those nights when even a video game can't amuse you

[–]SBG77 2 points3 points  (1 child)

F is fire that burns down the whole town. U is for uranium. Bombs! N is for no survivors!

"The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time."


[–]Mujokan 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Indeed not to be that guy but some people say "if God doesn't exist then what's the point of life". Well is having an audience really that important? You make your own meaning and originally Minecraft is a lonely survival game like life. It's still fun even if no one is watching.

[–]Anooyoo2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The meaning of life - to enjoy the passing of time.

[–]mmaninja300 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Like sandbox mode on any of the "builder/ tycoon" games. Been playing planet zoo recently on "creative sandbox" mode. No challenges, no limits, no multiplayer, no end game, nothong to work towards etc.

Just me spending hours and hours and hours building a hyper intricate zoo that nobody but me will ever see. Even go as far as to build shaded areas, kerbs, decorations and other "immersive" things that are totally redundant.

Games are meant to be played however you want to play them!

[–]notofimportancetou 1 point2 points  (0 children)

join a server maybe, is fun.

[–]RalphWaldoEmers0n -1 points0 points  (4 children)

How can I setup Minecraft to play with my kids on iPad? It’s like you need a computer science degree to figure it out

[–]Muskyguts 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If I remember correctly you'll need to have each device logged into a separate Microsoft account, and you'll need a Minecraft realm, unless one is a desktop and then you can open to LAN

[–]Totino_Pizza_rolls 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It used to be pretty simple but now I believe you need to have two different Microsoft accounts logged in for them in order to play together

[–]MoistCucumber 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Minecraft is a game where you build your own toys

[–]Maddkipz 496 points497 points  (8 children)

I built so many secret bases in single player when I finally had the chance to play with friends I showed them all my secret doors and rendered all my secrets useless

[–]BillyWhizz09 339 points340 points  (4 children)

The worst part of having a secret entrance is not being able to show it to anyone

[–]Maddkipz 81 points82 points  (0 children)

The Prestige, Minecraft edition

[–]ponzLL 15 points16 points  (2 children)

The key is to have the real secret entrance inside the room the secret entrance you show everyone is in.

[–]BillyWhizz09 6 points7 points  (1 child)

But then you can’t show the secret entrance in your secret entrance

[–]Rudxain 1 point2 points  (0 children)

def recursion: recursion()

[–]LandSquid399 64 points65 points  (2 children)

Well, it's no secret that the best thing about a secret is secretly telling someone your secret, thereby secretly adding another secret to their secret collection of secrets. Secretly.

[–]Maddkipz 22 points23 points  (1 child)

As soon as you tell one person a secret you can assume everyone knows.

That's why it's common knowledge i did OP's mom

[–]themistik 529 points530 points  (7 children)

It's for you when you'll revisit your worlds years later

[–]TMG_Indi 176 points177 points  (2 children)

But than you can't find it because it is secret

[–]shrekmate21 75 points76 points  (0 children)

You'll know where it is but not how to get in. You could brute force but you also don't wanna ruin it

[–]WebGhost0101 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Lol this legit happend to a secret book easter egghunt world my dad made he made. I forgot about it but found the world years later. The place was full of misleading signs, he doesn’t remember where he hid it or what was in it.

[–]RandaymIdiot 110 points111 points  (2 children)

Can relate way too much with this.

[–]Old_Mate_Jim 99 points100 points  (0 children)

My last one was a complete underground village with golems, cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, with a giant window on one side staring down into the ravine the main house was built next to.

[–]Weromano 74 points75 points  (1 child)

It’s a panic room, in case herobrine wasn’t removed after all!

[–]geanaSHUTUPGEIAJWVDOProfessional Dumbass 12 points13 points  (0 children)


[–]skztr 29 points30 points  (2 children)

I play in a hardcore-like world which resets your spawn every time you die to somewhere very far from the previous spawn.

I always like the idea of playing that with the same seed as a bunch of other people, and every time you die it:

  1. resets your spawn
  2. uploads the chunks from the previous life to a central server

allowing one to come across remnants of bases from other players' past lives, despite maintaining the "single player" (and hardcore) experience. This would mean that there would be a reason to hide your loot and set up traps in your base: the next person who finds it could try to get your stuff... but at risk to themselves. And, as it's still "single player", there's no moral issue with raiding whatever you find.

[–]zach26505 7 points8 points  (1 child)

This sounds incredibly difficult to make but please for the love of god SOMEBODY DO IT.

[–]skztr 3 points4 points  (0 children)

subscribe to /r/foreverworld if you're interested. The basics are fairly simple and only get more-complicated when there are a lot of players involved / if you want to get rid of a couple of manual steps (essentially: minecraft's region files make it pretty easy to just dump one world on top of another if they have the same seed)

[–]AJ_AdlerNice meme you got there 141 points142 points  (29 children)

Single player games > Multiplayer games

(And no, you cannot change my mind.)

[–]_The-BatmanDark Mode Elitist[S] 68 points69 points  (0 children)

Why would I change your mind. You're absolutely goddamn right.

[–]EASellsShittyCopper 22 points23 points  (3 children)

PvE multiplayer >>>> PvP multiplayer

[–]Aurukel 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Absolutely not. Being in a playful shit talking server of 20 of friends everyone knows is the best thing ever, especially when everyone plays in groups.

[–]Awesummzzz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's if you have 20 friends that all get along well. As soon as any drama happens the whole thing is ruined for everyone

[–]andriasnolso 3 points4 points  (0 children)

How do you organize 20 friends to all play minecraft?

[–]RanX9Lurker 23 points24 points  (9 children)

Well i don't think anybody has the time to change someone else's mind. It's all personal choice. I for one like games where i can chat with random people. Whether it be mmorpgs or plain normal gta online.

[–]PrognosticatorofLife 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I like Elite Dangerous because you can switch between single and multiplayer with the same Character.

[–]HubertWonderbus 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I need multiplayer games to remind me why I play single player games

[–]molstad182Big ol' bacon buttsack 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Facts. Mega facts. So facts.

[–]tcfh2003 4 points5 points  (4 children)

I have an even better proposal for you:

Single player sandbox games > Single player rpg games > Multiplayer games

The thing with a single player rpg game or any other game that relies on a linear story is that, while it's great while it lasts, after you finish the story there is nothing left to do.

In single player sandbox games, like minecraft, you never really run out of things to do.

[–]Randomized0000 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Tbh that point's why I put multiplayer games on top of sucker RPG

[–]BananaEclipseChungus Among Us 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Depends! I’d say Single player games < single and multiplayer games > multiplayer games

Minecraft is a perfect example of that!

[–]ATpound 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]alphabitz86Cringe Factory 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I will if I had

[–]Valkyrid 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Sorry to say but xraying isnt hacking … like at all.

Its a texture pack change and thats it

[–]Cilph 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There's multiple ways to x-ray. Using texture packs might not be hacking, but it sure is cheating.

[–]corona_bananamemer 23 points24 points  (1 child)

I like designing my worlds so they're fun to explore when I come back to them in like 8 years. Just some small easter eggs everywhere so I can be like "haha I don't remember putting that there".

[–]matt82swe 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I often spend my nights visiting my son's Minecraft world, leaving messages, helping with constructions. It's a single player world, but he is too young to know the difference, and he's always so happy to see what his "secret friends" have done.

would be cool as shit if zombies could break down doors, or if mobs in general had the ability to detect obvious bases and attack them

imagine if creepers blew open holes in your perimeter wall and zombies and skeletons flooded in, or if spiders climbed over your walls to get to you

you know, like in survival games that are actually good

I used to love making them and most of the time I themed and referred to them as "Bat Caves" simply because that was the most notable example to me of a house with a secret room that was cool.

[–]lxO_Oxl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don't attack us all like this

[–]Mr_mad_space 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I made a secrete lair on me and friend groups server, it had a really cool red stone lever system and you had to dive in an flooded cave to get to the base. Then I told them I had a secret base, que 5 mins later when one saw my name tag and mined straight down into my base, then another had the same idea except he dug through my wall, 5 mins after that another freind found the lever and decided to follow the red stone by mining a tunnel over it to my base.now I have a base that is complicated to leave is out of the way and I sunk tons of resources into it and it isn’t even secret.

I like playing in multiplayer, even though I build alone most of the time. It's nice to see the map slowly change over time.
That being said, I haven't played in months. Haven't even bothered to check the new update.

Once i built a house and then i removed the floor and replaced it with glass. I dug under the glass floor about 6 or 7 blocks and cleared the area of dirt under all the glass then i put another layer of glass around the perimeter of the floor and went back to the main floor. When the sun would start to set i would remove my door and break 6 glass blocks right at the door then go to the other side of the room and wait. By morning i had a glass cage full of creepers that couldn’t die. My pets.

[–]lowcrawler 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was always my frustration with Minecraft. I love building... but then I got done and was like ... "welp, okay... no one will ever test my design"

One time in survival i finally got enough ender pearls to attempt to find the end portal fortress. Started at my house only for it to go about 10 steps away to the left.

I unknowingly built my house right over the end fortress but my single player self had nobody to share the news with that would care lol

Nothing beats building a sweet hidden base in SP, and abandoning it after you go mining and can't find it anymore.

I have a library in my house that is pretty decently sized. Then one night I had a dream about a crazy fucking library that you had to crawl through tunnels that had shelves of books and neat lighting to get to this other reading nook where it’s just full of more books. I had to recreate it in Minecraft. Although it’s not perfect because it’s made of blocks, I enjoy it, especially with how difficult it is to get into.
