How to Make a Cobblestone Generator in Minecraft?

To create cobblestone generators, dig a 1×4 rectangular trench, with the block on the right side, being two layers deep. 

Then, add water or ice over the block, to the right and then put lava over the block, to the farthest left.

A cobblestone generator is a fascinating idea to play with. However, they are typically used within “Skyblock,” specifically the “Skyblock” game mode, in which players generally are limited in terms of the start-up resources available.

If constructed correctly, it lets you create an endless number of new cobblestone blocks to construct with. In the normal standard Minecraft game modes, it would probably be a bit ineffective.

However, in specific games that require very few resources (such as skyblock), cobblestone generators can be vital to the progression.

It isn’t easy for those who are new to building an effective cobblestone generator the first time.

This guide will describe the basics of how to build one and will go over all the necessary resources to build it.

Material Required:

The components you’ll need for the construction of cobblestone generators are:

  1. 1 Lava bucket
  2. 1 water bucket

TIP: If you are not sure how to make buckets in Minecraft then check out this tutorial.

After you’ve made two buckets, then you’ll require an area that has the lava and water, and then, you’ll need to work with these liquids while holding a bucket that is empty to fill it with water.

Water is easily located in a matter of minutes of searching around the globe, and it’s often also provided to players who play the skyblock game mode after they spawn.

Step-by-Step Guide:

This is the step-by-step pictorial instruction you should follow to create the Cobblestone Generator in Minecraft:

Step 1:

Make a rectangular trench exactly as shown in the following:

Step 2:

Sprinkle ice/water on the top of the block that is closest to the right side of the trench, as illustrated below:

Tips: If you’re making use of ice blocks instead of water buckets, make sure you put the block of ice down and then break it to release water!

Put lava on the blocks from the bottom of the trench as illustrated below:

Step 4:

If you’ve completed everything correctly then a cobblestone block will automatically appear, like the picture above.

How to use a Cobblestone Generator in Minecraft?

If you’ve followed the instructions above and have access to an operational cobblestone generator, you’ll be able to break down the cobblestone block that was created by colliding blocks of lava and water at the center.

If you’ve properly constructed the generator, the cobblestone block can continue to reproduce after breaking indefinitely, i.e., you can take the brick as much as you want, and a new one will always be created.

Q. What is the best way to build an AFK cobblestone generator farm?

Automated harvesting farms (AFK farms) are more difficult to construct than what is taught in this tutorial for beginners.

Q. Which buckets of lava or water will I require to construct a cobblestone generator?

If you don’t make any mistakes when assembling, you will just require 1 bucket of water as well as one lava bucket to construct an efficient cobblestone generator.

Final Words

Cobblestone generators are not often seen in the vanilla Minecraft survival because of the natural quantity of stone and therefore cobblestone throughout the world. 

Billions of stone blocks grow naturally on any planet and a cobblestone generator is rather useless to even the smallest degree.

Game modes that are resource-constrained, like Skyblock, however, are the most popular game modes for players in making cobblestone generators. 

In these game types, it is nearly impossible to achieve any significant advancement without having a functioning generator in place to constantly give you a constant flow of construction blocks.
