    You could make a house with 3-deep walls with obsidian/ bricks on the inside, so you can make your house look good. If a creeper blows up on the outside, your inside will still be intact.

    Another way to do it : make it out of bedrock with a (brightly lit) underground entrance .

  • rei
    rei  2 years ago +1

    With the doors you can actually just put another door so it actually makes a double door so the actual door is in the correct direction. Also since doors normally come in 3s it's easier.

    Simply Pennywise 3 years ago +1

    With the 2nd one it’s a great idea but common mobs hide in water during the day and they will literally be right outside
    You for when you wake up
    Also with your first example with the house I recommend putting water in front of the wall to stop the endermen

    Ik this is very late but for creepers you can get a bunch of cats and have em sit around outside your base to scare them. If you put some on the roof too it scares phantoms.

    The ladder on the overkill house is not mob proof but all you have to do for it to become mob proof is to add a trapdoor at the top of the ladder that opens up to the side parallel with the house.

    A cool way to get into a 2nd- 3rd ect story house, what you can do is dig a hole 1 block deep, then put a sticky piston in it/ racing up and then put the slime block on top of the sticky piston. Just add a button and boom! This machine launches you pretty far and its really simple! *you have to stand on the slime block*

  • Neeko Is A Cat
    Neeko Is A Cat Year ago

    2 most efficient ways to mob proof your house:
    1. Build your house above ground and use ladders, not stairs, ladders to go up so mobs can't follow you and at the top of the ladder, place a trapdoor so spiders also can't get up, then surround your house/base with lighting so mobs can't spawn either. Also, build a 3 block wide hole with water that's at least 2 blocks deep so endermen also can't follow you. As for phantoms, just sleep every night.
    2. Make sure your world is in peaceful mode.

  • Ian3303
    Ian3303 Year ago

    I got an idea:make 1×1 holes around the house,then place one pufferfish in each,then place trapdoors over the holes
    (I did that in my survival world and it worked very well)

    I recently started playing Minecraft I’m planning to build my mega base soon witch will be a massive castle on a hill not far from my current base might use some of these tricks to spawn proof it the plan is to build an entire city slash farm area that is 3 maps wide and 3 maps up and down just mapping out the areas around my base witch is at spawn so I can easily get back to my base with a compass once the map is done I’ll build a wall around the entire area light up the area inside the walls and turn my old base into a villager living area with lots of beds so a lot of work to do to make sure it’s safe and spawn proof iron golems trap doors on the walls the works

  • Owen Fennell
    Owen Fennell 4 years ago +8

    To deter endermen: put water sources held up above all your area you want proofed. Then make sure they can't walk in. Lastly make the ground around it and in it a block they can't pick up and like glass. They can't teleport to or from below water... No idea why but if the walls are not closed they still can teleport in. This also works with lava

  • • kinkajou •
    • kinkajou • 2 years ago

    Another thing you can do is take ocolots and put a lead on them, than put them on a fence, they scare away creepers, and also tame some wolves as attack guards if they come in

  • Steampunk Papercut
    Steampunk Papercut 6 years ago +6

    I've taken to using water for mobproofing. It stops more than just endermen; creepers can't blow up your walls if they're surrounded by water, and anything that's not a spider can't jump out of water far enough to get over a one-high wall, which means it's quick and easy to build a base that's safe from zombies, endermen, skeletons and creepers on an island, in a lake, or anywhere else you have easy access to water. Add a trapdoor for your entrance, and you can jump onto the trapdoor, jump up onto your wall, close the trapdoor, and be safe. Spiderproofing becomes your only problem, and "problem" is a generous term.
    Alternatively, just building the entrance to your home underwater works as well. Mobs won't follow you down, and will forget about you beyond a certain depth. You can then take your well-lit tunnel to your actual home.

    You forgot to add the room full of dispensers that shoot ten arrows per second and never stop, so you need projectile protection diamond armor to get through them. Mobs tend not to have enchanted diamond armor. Same with the TNT coming out of dispensers room, but you need blast protection.
    Also, you're supposed to make the entire thing out of obsidian so that creepers can't blow it up and Endermen can't take it apart.

    Where the position of the door is depends on if there's a block or air on the sides,
    the door will detect for walls and will "attach" to that wall.
    If you want perfectly strait double doors, but want the game to think there "Open" when closed, Just place a block or two at the entrance (or exit) and it should "attach" to that block then remove the block(s) and it should look right.
