Minecraft is a game with so many moving parts that you will want to explore many different structures that you can create in your world. For those looking to quickly get to different floors in their buildings, there are several ways to make an elevator go up and down quickly.
This guide focuses on a set of elevators that use water to push you up and down. Don’t worry you won’t drown inside as the method we use will create air bubbles for you as you ascend and descend. No one wants to continuously go up and down stairs all day, so here’s how to create easy water lifts in your Minecraft seed.
Once this is done, you can go as high as you want the elevator to go; it totally depends on you. Place the door in the space at two heights so that the water does not escape to the outside.
After making the foundation for your elevator, go up and add water to make it flow from top to bottom. However, you’ll quickly notice that this method requires every water block to be a source block. However, just letting it flow, the water blocks other than the ones on top aren’t source blocks, so it can’t move up or down.
How to make a water lifter using Soul Sand in Minecraft
To make a water lifter using Soul Sand in Minecraft you will need some items which are:
Add water and soul sand
The design of this riser relies on water to function as intended. Players must fill the tube with water. Once the water is in place, replace the block at the bottom of the water stream with soul sand.
After placing the soul sand, players will notice bubbles coming out of the block. If bubbles are missing, a water block is falling. The best way to turn falling water into full water blocks is to grow seaweed in it.
Avoid being burned by magma
Magma blocks in the water can pose a threat when they drag you underwater. Not only is there a risk of drowning if you stay underwater too long, but a magma block will even burn you underwater.
If you’re not careful, you’ll easily burn yourself multiple times on the magma block while using the elevator. It won’t kill you, but it can be quite annoying to deal with.
