I'd like my first post to be about the new world I've been playing in the latest Minecraft update 1.0.0
I have been playing the new Hardcore mode. Hardcore mode for you who don't know are whenever you die that's it. No do overs or restarts. It deletes your world to make it no longer playable again. I have been playing on this world ever since 1.0 has been out and I am loving this mode. It makes everything much better, you have to be more cautious and you actually have to keep track of where you are in the world as opposed to just dying to respawn in your bed.
In addition to you only having one life, the game difficulty is stuck on Hard which means monsters are much more difficult to kill and will hurt you for a lot more damage - that makes caves and ravines much more difficult to take out.
I will be posting updates to how my world is going and hopefully a lot more tutorials later.

My underground farm, Dug out inside a mountain.
Water is underneath half-steps.
My reed farm directly below my wheat farm. (I'm on a ladder)
Tip of the day.
Tip of the day;
Add levers to the bottoms of your furnace. Have them pointing up so you'll know it's empty and down so you know that something has been cooked in it.

|Dirt blocks 2 metres apart.|
First place some dirt/grass blocks two spaces away from each other.
|Torches on the sides|
To speed up the growing, or if you are growing indoors place torches on each sides of the dirt.
|Saplings on top.|
Place a sapling on top of each dirt block.
Wait a couple of Minecraft days.
(Don't worry if your trees all don't grow at once, it's random.)

Dig a 2X2 hole to start off with.
|Unlimited Water Source|
Now you can put two buckets of water in the upper right hand corner and the bottom left hand corner.
That is your unlimited water source.
Now you can dig a channel for your water to go into. This will be for your farm and it'll make your crops grow much faster than unhydrated land.
|Crops tilled and planted|
|Added steps over water for harvesting.|
Fill the canal up with water, make sure all the water connects.
Till the ground with a hoe and plant your seeds.
You can get seeds by using a hoe on the grass.
|Fenced in the crops.|
Put some steps over the water to allow you to harvest your crops.
This step is optional. If you want you can add fences around your crops so animals won't trample them, if you are making an indoor farm this won't be a problem.
|Crops are grown!|
|All done farming !|
After a couple of Minecraft days, your crops will grow and be ready for harvest. You can make bread out of the wheat you gather.
Just started off in a new world.
To make a crafting bench.
After you make the pickaxe, mine the coal and make it into torches shown below.
If you want to make a wooden door, go ahead. it allows you to get in and out of your building safely.
Here I make chests. You can store items in them.
My house facing the entrance. (Also, a zombie.)
