PASSION FRUIT Passion Fruit is a sometimes sour and sometimes a super sweet fruit. They are AMAZING and my all time favorite fruit! You can sometimes find them at your local grocer. Passion Fruit also makes DELICIOUSjuice/smoothies!
THAI COCONUT These Thai Coconut are to DIEfor! The meat inside is sweet and the coconut water is refreshing and healthy. To open a Thai coconut you will need a cleaver, so have a parent cut it for you!
DURIAN When you open up the Durian, make sure to plug your nose! The smell not great. Durian smells like dirty trash and dirty socks! However, the smelly fruit is super sweet and tastes like custard. Many love it!
There are so many wonderful fruits in the world, and these are some Smelly/Sour/Sweet fruits you will definitely want to try!
Movement in Single Player / Survival Mode How To Play Minecraft – Getting Started
Okay so you bought Minecraft, and you’ve loaded it. This is what you should see.
You will see a screen that says “Singleplayer”, “Multiplayer” and “Minecraft realms”. Minecraft Realms is not important for a beginner.
Which one do you choose Singleplayer or Multiplayer? As a beginner, I would suggest doing Singleplayer, because it’s more of a peaceful place than the servers on multiplayer. Of course, you can start on Multiplayer, I did on a friends server, but she taught me what to do so it was easier than being on some strangers server.
Lets assume that you are starting in Singleplayer. Press Singleplayer. You will see buttons that say Create New World and Cancel, which takes you back to the main screen. You will also see other buttons like “Play Selected World” and Rename. When you want to create a new world click “Create New World” and this screen will show up.
Now its time to get creative! Name your world – anything you want. Once you name your world you will see similar text as in the image. You can switch the game modes between Creative, Survival, and Hardcore. In Creative you never die and you have UNLIMITED RESOURCES! For this tutorial, select Survival. Press Create New World as shown in image left. The world will load and build the terrain.
You get in and you think ITS BEAUTIFUL!!! Well at least I did. Note: Not all worlds will look the same.
So how do you move??!! The default key settings are:
W = Move forward
S = Move backwards
A = Move left
D = Move right
Spacebar = Jump.
The W key moves your character forward. Pressing W twice will allow your character to sprint (move faster)!
I will refer to the keys in their original default state. But you should try the default key controls out and if you do not like them and they feel weird you have 2 options. Option 1: Get use to them. Option 2: Change the key controls by pressing ESC to go to the Options Menu. (see below screen capture)
The Options menu is also where you would leave your world (stop playing) by pressing “Save and Quit to Title”. To change the controls, press Options…
The Options screen looks like a LOT, but it’s really pretty simple. What you want to press to get to Controls is, well, Controls… After you’ve pressed the Controls button you should see a screen that looks similar to the below image. I’ll teach about Hotbar Slot 1, etc in a future post.
You will need to scroll down until you see controls similar to the below screen capture.
You will see Jump and Strafe Left, etc. What you want to do is press the button that says W if you want to change the way you walk forward, and press the SPACE button to change the way you jump. Feel free to change your key controls as much as you want. There is a reset button if want to change the keys back to the original state.

The video shows the various movements discussed in this post such as jumping, moving forward, sprinting, etc. My character also swims in water in the video. To swim, press your JUMP key to stay up to keep from drownng. You are in Survival so your character can die, but have no fear, your character can also respawn. The downside of dieing in Survival is that you will lose your inventory. More on Inventory in a future post.
Have fun playing and exploring in Your New World. I hope you’ve found this useful. Until next time.
