How to Create an Automatic Cobblestone Generator in Minecraft
No self-respecting Minecraft house is complete without a state of the art automatic cobblestone generator. But what does the average Minecrafter need with a bunch of cobblestone? To put it simply, sometimes you just need a bunch of blocks. I cannot tell you how many times I have been in the midst of a trap, animal pen, or basement only to find myself short on the second most common block of them all.
If you're tired of going out in the cold, dangerous night to collect more stone for your projects, look no further. The automatic cobblestone generator is a mechanism driven only by the physics of Minecraft that allows a player to generate virtually infinite blocks of cobble simply by holding down their right mouse button. While there are many cobblestone making machines on the market, most are needlessly complicated and very time consuming to create. Today we will be making what is probably the simplest and easiest to use cobblestone maker possible.
This cobblestone maker starts by creating a five by five block square of any non-flammable block you wish to use. Spoiler alert, I used cobblestone.
Cobblestone occurs naturally in Minecraft when lava interacts with water. You've probably seen cobble form when a flow of lava runs into a lake or ocean. This is not to be mistaken with obsidian, which forms when water interacts with lava, such as when a stream of water hits a bed of lava. All the automated cobblestone maker is doing is recreating this naturally occurring event in a convenient fashion.
There you have it: with the click of a button all the cobblestone you've ever wanted is yours. Not only does this machine create endless cobble, it's easy to build and so compact it can fit just about anywhere. Now you no longer have to destroy the landscape mining stone, risking your life in the process.
