How To Build A Cobblestone Generator?

Step 1: Dig a Trench


Dig a Trench that looks like the one shown, you should dig out the blocks marked in red.

Step 2: Add Water


Add water to the block marked in blue. It should fall into the hole.

Step 3: Add Lava


Add lava to the far side of the trench, and the water and lava should cool into stone. Once you break the stone, more stone should come back in the exact same spot.

Step 4: Start Mining!


Once your cobblestone generator is ready, you can mine away and mine away, and you’ll never run out of cobble. Dig yourself a little hole to stand in, and watch as all your skyblock goals are achieved. Enjoy!

If you still have a problem with how to build a cobblestone generator, then watch the video below and you will get to know how to build a generator by following easy steps.

Types Of Generators:

Pistonless Generator

Pistonless generators have been around for quite a while. Their usefulness, however, is limited because cobblestone is so readily available. These generators require the player to mine and collect the fresh cobblestone in close proximity with lava. This both presents risks to the player and reduces efficiency if the dropped cobblestone is destroyed by the lava. These drawbacks can be mitigated by design choices, for example by removing the block under the cobblestone, allowing the loot to fall in a safe place, or collecting drops using a hopper.

Basic Generator

A lava stream touching a water stream is the simplest type of generator. In a 10 block long trench with sources at either end, the cobble will form next to the lava. With a little more digging, you can manage this more compactly, and even get a current to wash the mined cobblestone away from the lava. This and the next design are easily expandable for multiplayer use.

Fountain Generator

A fountain-style generator offers more convenient mining but takes more work to construct than the basic version. This one also uses two lava streams for faster production.

From below Generator

The “From Below” generator is a small building with the generator on the roof. Putting the generator on the roof means very little cobblestone is lost to the lava, but it is a lot more work. This one also uses two lava streams.

Piston Generator

Pistons can be used to automate cobblestone generation and reduce the amount of cobblestone lost. Piston cobblestone generators work on the same principle as standard generators, but rather than mining, a piston pushes the fresh stone out of the way, allowing the streams to touch once again. Piston cobblestone generators can be used both to create a large supply of cobblestone that the player can mine later or supply a self-repairing structure with blocks. The piston can be driven by a clock, or by a circuit to detect when a cobblestone block has appeared. The cobblestone will extend in a long line or pillar; if you don’t want it to extend out to the full 12 blocks, you can “cap” it with any unpunishable block. Furnaces will do fine, and you have plenty of cobblestone handy to make them.

Basic Piston Generator

The first design uses a Redstone clock that drives a piston which pushes out the generated cobblestone from a basic core. The second uses a block-detection circuit and pushes the cobblestone upwards.

Quad-piston Generator

These advanced generator designs consistently produce four cobblestone blocks on every fourth piston cycle. The blocks are pushed upwards, negating any chance of the cobblestone burning from touching lava. Cobblestone Quad-piston “Factory”:

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. Can you get ores from a cobblestone generator?

It can also be turned into stairs, slabs, moss stone (for that Temple of Doom appeal), and the usual tools. Although cobblestone is found just about everywhere underground, it’s also one of the easiest ores to automatically produce.

2. Can you mine cobblestone without a pickaxe?

Cobblestone requires a pickaxe to be mined, in which case it drops itself. If mined without a pickaxe, then the mining is slower and it drops nothing.

3. Why is my cobblestone generator making obsidian?

Cobblestone generators work on the principle that when a lava stream comes into contact with water, the lava is turned into cobblestone. This fresh cobblestone then prevents the two streams from touching. … Doing so will destroy the lava source, converting it into obsidian.

4. How do you make a cobblestone generator faster?

5. How do you make an efficient cobblestone generator in Minecraft?

6. Do cobblestone generators still work?

Cobblestone generators work on the principle that when a lava stream comes into contact with water, the lava is turned into cobblestone. This fresh cobblestone then prevents the two streams from touching. When this fresh cobblestone is removed, the two fluids will produce another piece of cobblestone.
