We already brought you part one of our list of 15 things you probably did not know about Minecraft, and now we’re back with part two! Check out eight more fascinating facts about the wildly popular video game that you definitely (probably) did not know below. You might be surprised by what you find out!
Number Eight: Double Plants Won’t Protect You From Cave Spiders, Spiders, or Slimes. However, they will protect you from all other hostile mobs. This is because the mobs are unable to locate players in blocks that aren’t solid, so as long as you’re within the block, you’ll be fine.
Number Seven: There’s a Hack to Keep Your Player Moving. If you play Minecraft on a Mac, you can hold “command” plus the “W” key, and the player will continue to move even if you’re not at your computer.
Number Six: Fences With Carpet on Them Are Special. That’s because users can jump on these fences while mobs cannot. This becomes especially helpful for building barriers to block mobs.
Number Five: Rain Won’t Stop Buildings From Being Damaged by Fire. It might sound a little counterintuitive, but it’s true. Even if it’s raining, if there’s a fire, users still have to worry about potential damage.
Number Four: There’s a Way to Make a Fence That Keeps You in and Animals Out. Users can put a normal fence next to a nether fence, and even though the fence posts won’t connect, animals won’t be able to pass through. The user, however, will be able to go through the fence.
Number Three: Wear a Pumpkin to Become Invisible to Endermen. Users who want to be invisible to Endermen only need to wear a pumpkin on their head, and they’ll be unrecognizable. It sounds silly, but it works!
Number Two: The Endermen’s Language Is Reverse English. Though the creepy characters speak in a very low volume, what they’re saying is actually just English in reverse.
Number One: A Sleeping Cat Is Responsible for Voicing the Ghast. The ghast is one of the most inimitable foes in the game, but the story behind its voice isn’t so scary. In fact, the ghasts are all voiced by a sleeping cat who was angrily woken up. We hope you enjoyed our list of 15 things you didn’t know about Minecraft!
