Gather the necessary materials
If you want build a computer on Minecraft, the first thing you need to do is gather all the resources that can be useful for the realization of this project.
What I will present to you in the next chapter is one of the methods you can use to create an object that can look like a computer, but in the course of this guide you will also find other ideas in this regard.
First, you will need to create one white banner using 1 unit of Staff e 6 units of white wool, to be placed in a workbench. There lana you can get it by shearing the sheep you find in the Minecraft world. If you want to know more about this topic, you can read the advice I gave you in this guide of mine.
On top of that, you'll need some dye to dye the banner, precisely that black and that White: the black you can get it by working the Ink pouch in a workbench, obtainable by defeating the squid swimming in the water. For what concern White, instead, you can get it from the processing of bones (resource found by defeating skeletons) in a workbench.
To add the dye to the banner, you will need a Chassis. This item is similar to a workbench, but its sole purpose is to apply colors and textures to the banners. You can make one using, in a workbench, 2 units of Wooden Planks e 2 units of Lanyard.
Finally, you will need to build one Iron hatch, creating it from 4 units of Iron Ingots inside a workbench. If you have all the resources that I have indicated in the previous lines, you can then continue with the reading of the next chapter, in which I will explain the procedures you will have to carry out to build a computer.
How to build a computer in Minecraft
The first step to take for build a computer on Minecraft is to find an area of your refuge with a free wall. You will need an area of the dimension 3 × 2 for this project.
First, you need to build one desk of the size 3 × 2, using the Fences and rugs. In this regard, I suggest you consult my guide on how to make a table in Minecraft, in which I explained in detail how to make different types of tables, including the one I suggested in the previous lines.
When you make the desk next to the wall, take care to leave an empty space in the center, which you will need for the construction of the computer. The first thing to do, however, is to apply the color to the banner. So interact on the Chassis and, in the screen that is shown to you, add it Standard in the appropriate slot and, on the one next to it, the Dye black.
You will be shown different textures that you can apply to the banner. Choose the one that allows you to dye the top of the banner of black, leaving everything else in color White.
Now, you will need to dye the banner again, applying a white colored frame. Interacting again on the Chassis, place it standard previously obtained in the appropriate slot, while adding the White dye in the slot alongside. You will need to select the texture that applies the cornice, selecting it from those that are shown to you in the list.
Well: if you have followed the instructions I have given you to the letter, you are almost at the end of the realization of this project. Then equip it standard and apply it on the wall, so that it is in the empty space you left earlier in the desk.
Now you just have to place the Iron hatch closing this empty space on the desk, in order to simulate a keyboard. Well done! You just built an object that appears to be a computer, albeit a non-functional one.
However, if you want to build one that looks more like a real computer and that, perhaps, can also work, I refer you to reading the tips in the next chapter of the guide.
How to build a working computer on Minecraft
If your intent is to build a working computer on Minecraft, I can recommend the use of a against which allows you to add elements to decorate and furnish the shelter. The add-on I'm telling you about is called MrCrayfish's Furniture Mod but, to make use of it, you need to install it first Minecraft forge.
The latter is a tool that aims to manage mods on Minecraft and it is, therefore, necessary that you proceed with its installation first. To do this, go to the Minecraft Forge website and press the button Installer, in order to download the relative fillet .jar.
After doing this, double-click on the file you just downloaded and, in the screen that is shown to you, click on the button OK, in order to install the Minecraft forge.
At the end of this procedure, it is time to continue downloading MrCrayfish's Furniture Mod from the CurseForge.com website: go to the link I just gave you and press the button Download, to download the .jar file of the mod.
Once this is done, move the file you just downloaded to the folder mods, which you can find by reaching the path C: Users [name] AppDataRoaming.minecraft, through File Explorer. In case you don't find the folder I just mentioned, you can create it manually by following the advice I gave you in this guide.
At this point, start Minecraft and press the icon ▲, available next to the button Play. Once this is done, select the profile Forge in the box you see and then click on the button Play. By doing so, you will have launched Minecraft with mod support, thanks to Minecraft forge.
By accessing a world in mode Creative and opening the inventory of your avatar, you can reach the tab related to the mod you just installed. You will find a list with all the decorative elements you can add to your shelter, including a working computer, which will allow you, after interacting on it, to access a screen for the "online" purchase of items useful for your adventures.
Alternatively, you can build it into a workbench, employing 7 units of Iron Blocks, 1 unit of Glass Panel e 1 unit of Redstone. Easy, right?How to make a computer in Minecraft
