    Hi all,
    This will be a guide to get all 6 new achievements in the aquatic update in about 5 minutes of actual work, along with an hour of idling. In the main menu, press play and create a new tutorial world by selecting “play tutorial”. Upon starting the world, you will need to walk forward a bit and press “B” every time a tutorial box appears to skip it. Open the inventory and eat the meat to regain full health. Keep walking straight ahead for a while until you reach a giant diamond pickaxe. When underneath it, turn left and head up the stairs and through the gate. There is a chest there, grab the raw cod (fish) from the chest and head back to the pickaxe. Now turn left again upon reaching it to go to the new aquatic bit from the update. Before you do there should be a few little houses on your right hand side; acquire a bed from one of them. Now, keep walking straight ahead and jump in the water. There are a few trampolines in the water, with dark green dried kelp blocks next to them. Get 1-2 of these blocks (you destroy them quicker when you are not in the water). Afterwards, dive down to get some kelp leaves (long vertical plants) as well as feeding the raw cod to one of the many dolphins swimming around to unlock ECHOLOCATION.

    Next, we will need a furnace, which can be found on the right hand side on the shore, looking in the direction you came from. In this furnace, place the kelp blocks as fuel and the kelp leaves as ingredient. This will unlock alternative fuel. Now wait for a kelp block to dry and retrieve it, to allow you to eat it. From now on, don’t eat anything else but dried kelp leaves, as your 3 full days of idling for CASTAWAY have started now.

    Next, we will create the conduit, by heading to the center of the lake. Grab the all items from the chest. Open the crafting table located in the floor next to the chest. Go to the “Mechanisms tab”, in here go one square to the right and then one down to find the conduit (beneath the beacon). Craft it. Next, head into the center of the water here, right beneath you, there will be the conduit set up ready. Place the conduit on the wooden block, then remove the wooden block with the axe you got from the chest. This will unlock MOSKSTRAUMEN.
    With the axe still in your hand, head to the bottom of the lake to find 4 seapickles (green plant with a blue bit at the top). On various spots there are already 4 on one block, if destroying those with the axe, you should be able to pick all 4 up pretty quickly. Place 4 of them back on a single block on the floor to unlock 1 PICKLE, 2, 3, 4.

    Now head back to the conduit, sit right next to it and let your console idle for 20 minutes to unlock sleep with the fishes (unlocks after spending 20 minutes under water). The remainder of the time you can partly skip by sleeping (during nights and thunderstorms) (unlocks after eating nothing but dried kelp leaves for 1 hour, reduced by the amount you spent sleeping). CASTAWAY

    Grats on your completion!

    I recommend doing that on a tutorial world. When you start the tutorial world, hit B when the text box at the top right corner wants to teach you how to play Minecraft. Don't hit A, or you can't cross the bridge until you finish the basic tutorial! You need to cross that bridge, and behind that big diamond pickaxe and these stone stairs you shoud see slime blocks on the Dried Kelp blocks. Sprint by hitting cn_LSu two times rappidly and try to land on water or slime blocks. Don't fall on any other blocks or you will end up receiving fall damage! Now, after you successfully landed, mine the Kelp Blocks that are beneath the slime blocks. Then go back to the bridge (you may find the stairs leading you to the bridge). This step is self explanatory. Try mining 8 cobblestones by gaining wood and then crafting a pickaxe. Go back and start crafting a Furnace. Place the furnace and place your Kelp Block(s) to Fuel. You will instantly earn the achievement.

    Go through the tutorial world, all the way to the end where you see lots of water. Under the water, there is lots of kelp plants (the tall plants that extend for multiple blocks). Cut them down and gain at least 9 kelp.

    Go back near the start of the tutorial world (where there's a giant shape of a diamond pickaxe), and you'll see two villager houses with a chest near each of them. If you're looking in the direction from the start of the tutorial world (so you're looking in the direction of where you went to get the kelp), you want to go into the compound on the left. In that chest is a lava bucket. Inside that villager's house is a bunch of furnaces. Use the lava bucket to power the furnace, to dry all of the kelp you collected. When you've got dried kelp, you need to turn them into dried kelp block using a crafting table (If you use the new style of crafting, you want the 'Decorations' tab, and it's in the second column).

    When you've done that, return to the villager's house, and use it in a different furnace and put something burnable (or even more wet kelp) in the upper slot of the furnace. The moment the Dried Kelp block is used as fuel, the achievement will unlock.
